The Shovel is an equippable weapon that appears in Bomberman Quest. They allow Bomberman to dig a hole on a tile space. Each space can only be dug once until Bomberman exits and re-enters the screen. When digging holes, there is a 1/8 chance that a Mini-heart will be uncovered. Also, there are certain spots in the world that contain special items that can only be uncovered by the Shovel.
Mami uses a Shovel during her secret boss fight.
