The Big Creep is a boss that appears in the center room of either the first or second floor of the Hall of Champions once Shovel Knight has eliminated all of the Invisishades and lit up all the corridors. It appears to be a conglomerate of multiple Invisishades, as seen when it first forms. Like the Invisishades, it can only be harmed by attacking it with the Light Orbs. Defeating it for the first time unlocks the Hall Champion Feat.

Attacks Edit

  • Summon Invisishades
  • Duplicates
  • Energy Skulls
  • Teleport

Support AttacksEdit

Floating SkullEdit

Gross skull

Floating Skulls are summoned when The Big Creep loses two health. Two will float back and forth in a figure eight dropping smaller skulls that damage Shovel Knight while he tries to dodge the boss. They cannot be damaged but will burst into smoke when the boss is defeated.

Falling SkullEdit


Falling Skulls are spawned by floating skulls at a fast rate to make it harder for Shovel Knight to avoid the boss. They flash pink and blue and descend slowly toward the ground.


  • The Big Creep is one of four bosses in Shovel of Hope that don't appear in any other campaigns. The other three are the Remnant of Fate and the version exclusives, Kratos and the Battletoads.
