Although there is no in-game visual representation, enemies in Hollow Knight take different amounts of damage from different attacks. Unlike damage to the Knight (which is represented by Masks), enemy damage is calculated as plain numerical values.

Damage Values

The following is a list of all damage-dealing Nail attacks, Spells, Abilities and Charms, along with their damage values.

  • The word "Nail" in the Damage column represents the current damage value of the Knight's Nail.
  • A forward slash / or an x represents a division of damage due to the attack dealing several hits.
  • Where 5 values are shown, it is the health value for each Nail upgrade.

Health Values

The following is a list of all enemies in the game and their health values.

  • Enemies with 1 health may not necessarily have 1 HP, but are immune to tick damage (such as Spore Shroom) and have low enough health that the starting Nail kills them in 1 hit.
  • Enemies with "—" health cannot be damaged.
  • A forward slash / represents a division of health from that enemy's multiple health pools.
  • Parentheses () clarify the nature of that enemy's health.
  • Certain enemies and bosses gain HP after the Knight upgrades the Old Nail. Enemies with this change are noted in parentheses.
