Rancid Eggs are Items in Hollow Knight.


A collectable item recovered from the corpses of Bluggsacs. Either find an already-dead Bluggsac will have to be found or a living one will have to be killed to make it drop the Rancid Egg. Once a Bluggsac has been killed, it will remain dead.

Can be given to Confessor Jiji to summon the Shade that is currently in the game world.

In Steel Soul Mode, Steel Soul Jinn replaces Jiji and can be given Rancid Eggs in return for Geo290-450.

How to Acquire


  • Tuk will not allow purchasing a Rancid Egg if the Knight has 80 or more eggs in their inventory. Rancid Eggs from all other sources, including the one offered by Tuk with the Defender's Crest, can still be obtained, allowing for another 21 Rancid Eggs for a total of 101.
  • Despite the eggs being considered inedible, it is implied that both Tuk and Confessor Jiji eat them.
