Inhabits the wilds beside the Queen's Gardens. Not aggressive in nature, but its wild bouncing behaviour can be dangerous.

It seems like their energy is limitless! Do they ever stop to sleep, or eat, or love?

Dialogue Bottom.png

Loodles are enemies in Hollow Knight. These leaping bugs roam the wilds beside the Queen's Gardens in packs, bouncing around unpredictably.[1][2] A stronger variant called Death Loodle are taught to kill in the Colosseum of Fools.[3]

Behaviour and Tactics

Hops around and sticks to surfaces, sometimes aiming its jumps in the vague direction of the Knight.

Watch their slow jumping arc to see where they are going to land, and then jump in to meet them before dashing away to avoid touching them.

If the Knight has acquired the Coiled Nail or a later upgrade, a single Nail Art kills a Loodle.
