Hollow Knight Dark Room


Hollow Knight Dark Room




Hollow Knight is a metroidvania game that features a vast and interconnected world full of secrets, enemies, and challenges. One of the aspects that makes the game immersive and atmospheric is the use of darkness in some areas, which can create a sense of mystery, danger, and exploration. However, not all players enjoy navigating through dark areas, especially if they do not have the proper item to light their way. In this article, we will discuss what is the Hollow Knight dark room, how to access it, what to expect from it, and how to overcome it.


What is the Hollow Knight dark room?




The Hollow Knight dark room is a term used by some players to refer to a specific area in Crystal Peak that is completely shrouded in darkness, making it very hard to see anything. The area is located near the top left corner of the map, and it contains a few platforms, spikes, enemies, and a hidden item. The area is optional and does not contain any essential items or abilities for completing the game, but it does offer a challenge and a reward for those who dare to enter it.

How to access the Hollow Knight dark room?




To access the Hollow Knight dark room, the player needs to have the Crystal Heart ability, which allows them to dash horizontally in mid-air. The ability can be obtained by exploring Crystal Peak and finding a large crystal that grants it. The player also needs to have at least one Simple Key, which can be found in various locations throughout the game. The Simple Key is used to unlock a door in Dirtmouth that leads to a shop called Sly's Shop. There, the player can buy an item called the Lumafly Lantern for 1800 Geo. The Lumafly Lantern is a crystal lantern containing a lumafly that brightens dark areas around the player, making them easier to navigate. The Lumafly Lantern is not required to enter the Hollow Knight dark room, but it is highly recommended, as it makes the area much more manageable.


To reach the Hollow Knight dark room from Dirtmouth, the player needs to take the Stag Station to Crystal Peak and then head left until they reach a large vertical shaft with several platforms and enemies. The player needs to use the Crystal Heart ability to dash across the shaft and reach a small opening on the left wall. The opening leads to a dark corridor that ends with another opening on the left wall. The opening leads to the Hollow Knight dark room.


What to expect from the Hollow Knight dark room?




The Hollow Knight dark room is a very challenging area that requires precise platforming and quick reflexes. The area is filled with spikes that deal two masks of damage each time they are touched, and enemies that can ambush the player from the darkness. The enemies include Crystal Hunters, which shoot crystals at the player from afar; Crystal Crawlers, which crawl on walls and ceilings and drop crystals when killed; and Glimbacks, which are luminescent bugs that explode when approached. The area also contains several hidden platforms that can only be revealed by hitting them with the Nail or by using spells.


The goal of the Hollow Knight dark room is to reach the end of it and obtain a hidden item called Joni's Blessing. Joni's Blessing is a charm that increases the player's health by 50%, but prevents them from healing with SOUL. The charm can be useful for players who prefer a more aggressive playstyle or who want to challenge themselves with less healing options.


How to overcome the Hollow Knight dark room?




The best way to overcome the Hollow Knight dark room is to use the Lumafly Lantern, as it will make the area much more visible and easier to navigate. However, even with the Lumafly Lantern, the area still requires careful movement and attention to avoid spikes and enemies. The player should also equip charms that can help them survive or deal damage in the dark area, such as Longnail, Mark of Pride, Quick Slash, Thorns of Agony, Grubsong, or Lifeblood Heart.


The player should also be aware of some tips and tricks that can help them in the Hollow Knight dark room. For example:



  • The player can use spells such as Vengeful Spirit or Howling Wraiths to reveal hidden platforms or kill enemies from a distance.



  • The player can use Dream Nail on enemies or corpses to gain SOUL, which can be used for healing or spells.



  • The player can use the Crystal Heart ability to dash over spikes or gaps, but they should be careful not to dash into enemies or walls.



  • The player can use the map and the compass charm to keep track of their position and progress in the dark area.



  • The player can watch videos or guides online to see how other players have completed the Hollow Knight dark room, such as [this one].




The Hollow Knight dark room is a challenging and rewarding area that tests the player's skills and courage. It is not for everyone, but for those who enjoy a good challenge, it can be a fun and satisfying experience. The Hollow Knight dark room is one of the many secrets and surprises that Hollow Knight has to offer, and it is a testament to the game's depth and quality.
