Bestiary
The remains of a bug, animated by a strange force. It will instinctively leap at uninfected creatures to attack them.

The bugs of old Hallownest did not hunt their own food, they had it brought to them. That's why they were so weak. That's why their kingdom crumbled into dust and faded away!

Dialogue Bottom

Leaping Husks are enemies in Hollow Knight. These reanimated corpses used to be citizens of the kingdom of Hallownest. They attack creatures who are not infected by leaping at them.[1]

Behaviour and Tactics

Meanders back and forth until disturbed. Leaps at the Knight when in range. Only dangerous when not on level ground or near hazards, however, this can be taken advantage of and get them to throw themselves into hazards in certain situations.

Trivia

"These vicious, mindless ghouls were once ordinary bugs like you and me. Something below the surface has burnt away their souls and filled them with an aimless rage."[2]
