In Shovel of Hope, the Peacock Gent can be seen in the Armor Outpost, inside the Fancy Shop. When Shovel Knight approaches him, he claims to be rich enough to buy the store, but forgot his wallet. He asks Shovel Knight if he can loan him money so he can buy a hat. If Shovel Knight does, the Peacock will be surprised that his ploy worked, and will leave the outpost. He returns after the commotion with Mr. Hat.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]
When talked to:
- "Peacock Gent: With my vast riches, I could buy this whole store! But I forgot my wallet. Oh! Upstanding knight! You could part with a paltry 1000 gold, no?"
When refusing to pay:
- "Peacock Gent: Surely you're in a similar situation, friend? You forgot your wallet too, yes?"
When paying him:
- "Peacock Gent: Wow, thanks! I can't believe that worked!"
Returning to the shop:
- "Peacock Gent: I just love coming to this fancy store. It makes me feel so... Fancy!"
