Bestiary
Fat, slow, flying bug. Frequently discharges the acidic liquid stored in its round body.

Does it realise what a nuisance it is? Drifting around, spilling its noxious juices everywhere it goes? If you see any, make sure to kill them.

Dialogue Bottom

Obbles are enemies in Hollow Knight. They are slow, flying bugs who attack by spewing acidic venom.[1][2]

Behaviour and Tactics

It flies around its territory, bouncing off of any surfaces it comes into contact with. Whenever the Knight is within its range, it periodically spews four blobs of acidic liquid in an X-shaped pattern.

Stay directly below, to the sides, or above an Obble to avoid damage or to heal safely.
