Kingdom Hearts III
Part shovel, part pogo stick, part drill—and thankfully, all pretty clumsy. Stay calm and sidestep its attacks, especially the pounce; whiffing that one leaves this Heartless flat on its face and wide open.

Most of the time, its shovel will dig up rocks to sling your way, but once in a blue moon it'll hit a mother lode of prizes—all yours for the taking!

The Pogo Shovel is an Emblem Heartless that appears in Kingdom Hearts III.


The Pogo Shovel is an industrial influenced Heartless, with a small set of legs sticking out of its large head. Its head has grey zig-zagged teeth across the front of its head. It has a yellow hard hat with a Heartless emblem with its two yellow curled eyes entrenched between its face and the bottom of its hat, with a drill nose sticking out between both eyes. It has two small arms with red boxing glove hands which it uses to hold the handles of its pogo stick. The pogo stick has a wire wrapped around it and ends in a dark blue shovel with a lightning emblem on it.


Pogo Shovels aren't especially threatening on their own, but usually appear either in groups or alongside other Heartless. While their jump and swing attacks are easy to react to and leave them open for attack after being used, watch for when they burrow into the ground, as when they emerge they will hurl rocks around themselves which can hit Sora from a distance if not blocked. When using Ground Burrow, Pogo Shovels can dig up HP prizes of random types and sizes, though there's a 5% chance for them to dig up 25 small and 5 medium munny prizes instead.

When dealing with them in groups, it is better to use Aero magic than Thunder, as they are resistant to the latter. They also have a weakness to Blizzard magic that can be exploited.
