By jumping and slashing down with the nail on environment jugs, spikes or enemies, the Knight will bounce. This move is known as "nail-bouncing" or "pogo-jumping," useful for fighting some enemies and for platforming.
In Fungal Wastes, there are pink mushrooms on which the Knight can nail-bounce higher than usual. They must be used as a platform to access the Mantis Village and other locations before obtaining Mantis Claw, Monarch Wings, or Isma's Tear.
Asides from these mushrooms, there are few other times where nail-bouncing is required:
- To obtain a Vessel Fragment in Deepnest by nail-bouncing on Garpedes.
- To complete some parts of the White Palace and the Path of Pain.
- Upgrading the nail does not change its appearance in the Knight's sprites.
