'All hail the Troupple King!'

Troupple Acolytes are recurring characters in Shovel Knight who spread the goodness of the Troupple King. They tell his story to those who don't know him and sell Troupple Chalices. The Chalices are the only way to summon the Troupple King in the Troupple Pond.

AppearanceEdit

Troupple Acolytes wear a large hat resembling a Troupple with a leaf and an eye. They also wear a robe with red and green stripes.

StoryEdit

Shovel of HopeEdit

In Shovel of Hope, a male Troupple Acolyte is encountered in the reserve of the Juice Bar in the Village. He spreads the Troupple King's word and can sell two Troupple Chalices to Shovel Knight.

He reappears in the ending, celebrating the fall of the Enchantress with the Troupple King and the Dancer at the Troupple Pond.

Plague of ShadowsEdit

In Plague of Shadows, a female Acolyte appears at the Armor Outpost and can be talked to once Plague Knight has conquered the place. Like her colleague, she spreads the Troupple King's word but only sell a single Troupple Chalice.

In the ending, both Acolytes are dancing the night away with the Troupple King and Oolong at the Troupple Pond.

Specter of TormentEdit

In the ending of Specter of Torment, the male Troupple Acolyte is shown to be the reformed Dark Acolyte, a former sevrant of the Enchantress. Led by Missy to the Troupple Pond, he begs the King for redemption. The Troupple King grants him his wish and changes his attire to that of the Troupple Acolyte.

King of CardsEdit

In King of Cards, the female Acolyte sells King Knight the Bubble Frog for 7 Merit Medals, as part of a fundraiser. She can be found at the beginning of the Heirloom Course by the Troupple Pond.

DialogueEdit

Shovel of Hope:Edit

When talked to:

"Troupple Acolyte: Hello, fishfriend! All hail the Troupple King!"

"Who?"

"Troupple Acolyte: You've never heard of the Troupple King?! Half trout and half apple! Pronounced like 'mouthful'! He's one of the forest gods, here to help those in need. I'm TELLING THE TRUTH! If you ever visit the sacred grotto, hold your Chalice aloft, and the Troupple King will appear! As it happens, I have been entrusted to sell Troupple Chalices to believers! Would you like one?"

"Hail!"

"Troupple Acolyte: THE KING OF FISH AND FRUIT! LONG MAY HIS STEM GROW!"

Plague of ShadowsEdit

When talked to:

"Troupple Acolyte: Hello, birdperson! All hail the Troupple King!"

"Who?"

"Troupple Acolyte: You've never heard of the Troupple King?! Half trout and half apple! Oh, and he gets quite upset if you say it like "Troople"! He doesn't need troops! It's more like.. "COUNCIL" or "DOUBTFUL". If you ever visit his grotto, hold your Chalice aloft! The Troupple King will appear and bless you with a sacred dance!"
"Plague Knight: (D-dance... That's what Mona was doing earlier... Heh, maybe he could .. show me how?"
"Troupple Acolyte: As it happens, I have been entrusted to sell Troupple Chalices to believers! Would you like one?"

"Hail!"

"Troupple Acolyte: All hail the Troupple King! THE KING OF FISH AND FRUIT! LONG MAY HIS STEM GROW!"

King of CardsEdit

At the beginning of the Bubble Frog Course:

"Troupple Acolyte: Ahoy there, goldfish! All hail the Troupple King!"
"King Knight: That's a strange getup you exhibit, local. What a sheltered life you must lead, HA HA!"
"Troupple Acolyte: Oh.. But not for long. I've been selected as a missionary for the Troupple King! I'll see the world! I'm selling Heirlooms as a fundraiser! They're not too expensive, really!"

After buying the Heirloom:

"Troupple Acolyte: The Troupple King said I was trapped in my personal bubble. But now I no longer have THAT problem!"

TriviaEdit

  • Their sprite models are respectively named "Troupple Guy" and "Troupple Guy Alt".
  • The Troupple Acolytes are the only other character to sell Relics other than Chester.
  • Missy is not the female Troupple Acolyte, as revealed in a Yacht Club Games livestream. She accompanied the Dark Acolyte to the Pond because he was too scared to go by himself.
    • Furthermore, the female Acolyte appears in King of Cards, which chronologically takes place before Specter of Torment.
