Mummified remains, deformed and enraged by infection.

Inside these shambling corpses is a bright light that pierces any darkness. I peered inside that light once and saw... something within it shining back. Something terrible.

Dialogue Bottom.png

Entombed Husks are enemies in Hollow Knight. They are decaying mummified corpses which became enraged by the Infection.[1][2] Hiding in the darkness, they wait for creatures to come close to them.[2]

Behaviour and Tactics

Will slowly drag itself about and will charge quickly towards the Knight once in range, swiping three times while pulling itself forward. It deals two masks of damage on contact.

Keep an eye on the distance and quickly back up to avoid any head-on confrontation and make sure to use any height advantage. Its eyes glow and it makes disgusting choking noises as it drags itself around, so it can easily be heard from far away.

Trivia

  • Its body shape and size very much resembles that of the Great Husk Sentry or the Husk Guard and could be the mummified carcass of it. Just like them, they deal two masks of damage.
  • When killed, it bursts into blobs of infection. Neither this burst nor the blobs deal damage.
