Discharges searing beams of light from the crystals on its back as it crawls around, seemingly unaware.
These creatures look weak, but sometimes burning pillars of heat will burst out from the crystals they carry on their backs. Be wary, and time your strikes well!
Behaviour and Tactics
They crawl along any surface of whatever platform they are on, rounding corners when coming to an edge. They shoot an intermittent beam of energy from the crystals on their back. The beam starts thin and harmless, emitting a charge-up sound.
They deal contact damage and are invulnerable to physical attacks, however they can be killed easily with Spells such as Desolate Dive or Shade Soul, or with area of effect charms such as Defender's Crest or Spore Shroom.
Dream Nail Dialogue
They can only be found in Crystal Peak, commonly in the northwest portion.
- A cut version of the Crystal Crawler can be found in the game's files and even appears in the Hollow Knight Press Kit.
