Crystal Heart is an Ability in Hollow Knight. It allows flying forward horizontally until colliding with a wall or enemy that is not killed by the dash.

Function

Hold SUPER DASH while on the ground or clinging to a wall to concentrate force. Release the button at full charge to blast forwards and fly through the air. The Knight will continue moving forward until interrupted by damage or the environment, by pressing JUMP or by tapping SUPER DASH again.

The Super Dash deals 10 damage on contact with an enemy, and any enemy killed by this hit will not damage the Knight or stop their movement.
