The Decadent Dandy is a music from the Shovel Knight soundtrack. This is the battle theme of King Knight in the first three campaigns (and Showdown) based on In the Halls of the Usurper, and also King Pridemoor's in King of Cards. It also plays during the final fight with Goldarmor in Mr. Hat's Story Mode of Shovel Knight Showdown.


"The pretender must be dethroned, even if it's unfashionable."
