Animating a bitmap font with a shader

Is there a way to make animated text using a bitmap font and a shader? The characters in bitmap font are essentially images, show I was thinking is there a way to move them individually?

How exactly do you want to animate them? You can definitely assign a shader to a control node such as a Label.

I was thinking, is there a way to access individual characters in bitmap font with a shader. They are essentially images so technically it can’t be impossible? What I actually want to achieve is shaking text, where individual characters move around (like seen in undertale for example). I can of course go on with making my own “control node” and render each character as a sprite and then manipulate them…
