The Shovel is a Royal Tool used for Digging. It can dig holes, fill holes, and remove obstacles.


The Shovel can be found near Chez Remy in the northeast of the Plaza during Menu Icon Quests.png The Royal Tools.


Using the Shovel to dig requires 50 energy. The energy cost can be reduced by upgrading WALL-E's Garden, where each level reduces the Energy cost of Digging by 2% each level - totaling 20% reduction in energy cost to Digging when fully upgraded to level 10.

The Shovel can be upgraded five times, and each upgrade allows it to remove different obstacles.
