Carefree Melody is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It has a chance to block damage when the Knight is hit.

Usefulness

The block chance resets to 0% every time the charm prevents damage and increases with each hit taken up to 90%.

The hit count does not reset upon death or when the charm is unequipped, which makes it helpful in Godmaster Icon Radiant fights. The charm is also particularly useful when no accessible means of healing are available.

Will allow the effects of other charms to continue through or activate alongside its own effect, save for Grubsong which requires taking actual damage.

Carefree Melody

How to Acquire

After banishing the Grimm Troupe, the charm can be acquired from Nymm by talking to him in Dirtmouth.

Probability

The odds of the charm activating increase with each hit taken since it last blocked damage:

0 Hits Taken 1 Hits Taken 2 Hits Taken 3 Hits Taken 4 Hits Taken 5 Hits Taken 6 Hits Taken 7+ Hits Taken
0% 10% 20% 30% 50% 70% 80% 90%
