Hunter's Journal

Hunters journal.png
Dialogue Top.png
Tiny squib... You approach fearless. Are you a hunter like me? Do you feel the urge inside, to stalk, to kill, to understand?

Then take it! My journal. It will aid you. At first the text may seem difficult to discern, but a learned hunter will come to understand its words. Venture the depths of this land and slay its beasts. Prove yourself worthy to bear the mark of Hunter.

Dialogue Bottom.png

The Hunter's Journal is a compendium of every enemy found in Hollow Knight, given to the Knight by the Hunter. New entries are added to the journal after defeating new enemies. Defeating a specified number of each enemy unlocks additional notes from the Hunter about that enemy as well as bits of lore, techniques for fighting said enemy or even information about the Hunter himself. After completing most entries the Hunter's Mark can be acquired.

A total of 168 entries can be acquired for the Hunter's Journal. However, four of these entries, the Hunter's Mark, Grimm Troupe Icon.png Seal of Binding, Godmaster Icon.png Void Idol, and Godmaster Icon.png Weathered Mask, do not increase the total entry count. This means that the Journal will only count 164 entries.

Exclamation Mark.png
In order to see the number of creatures encountered and the total amount required to complete the journal, the World Sense ability must be acquired.
