Bestiary
Fungal creature that attacks intruders to protect its young.

Something queer in the air has caused these mushrooms to grow hearts, minds, and even faces! This means they now fear for their lives, like all other living creatures.

Dialogue Bottom

Shrumal Warriors are enemies in Hollow Knight. They are fierce fungal creatures who protect their young from intruders, using their flexible caps to roll around.[1][2]

Behaviour and Tactics

When the Knight gets in range or attacks it with a ranged attack, it rolls into a ball and either jumps into the air in a descending arc or rolls directly at the Knight, leaving a trail of toxic gas.

Trivia

  • In one of the trailers, a Shrumal Warrior wielding a staff is seen. It does not attack the Knight but instead talks to them.
