Hollow Knight Guide
17. Forgotten Crossroads/Game End
From Dirtmouth, make your way to the right and enter the Black Temple. Inside you will find that the gate is now open. This gate leads to the final boss in Hollow Knight. Head inside and rest at the Black Bench. Resting here allows us to continue playing after we have beaten the game as well as see our game completion percentage. If you followed this guide, the percentage will be low (mine was like 35%). This means that there is still plenty of game left for you to explore! Anyways, when you are ready, head to the right and into the boss arena. Here we will face off against the Hollow Knight!
Boss: The Hollow Knight
Hollow Knight has a wide range of attacks. He can dash attack (can be dodged with a jump), ground pound, ground pound then flame column, and shoot orbs. Hollow Knight does have a pretty forgiving healing moment which happens when he seppukus himself. Use this moment to either heal or deal damage. Check out the video to get an idea about the fight. Good Luck.
Once Hollow Knight is defeated, you will have beaten the game. Note that this is considered the worst ending. Essentially you take the place of Hollow Knight inside the temple, ensuring the curse continues. In total there are three possible endings as well as a stinger ending you can unlock. These other endings require completing more of the game. If you don’t feel like doing that, check out all the endings below.
And that’s it! Thanks to all who read the Hollow Knight guide; I hope it helped you navigate through this beautiful indie title by Team Cherry. If you wish to contribute more to this guide or feel some areas should be edited for clarity, let me know in the Pit below. THANK YOU ALL!
