Soul Catcher is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It increases the amount of SOUL gained when hitting enemies with the Nail.

Usefulness

One of the earliest Charms available in the game. Its effect is not drastic but it remains useful for quite a long time for healing purposes, especially in areas where enemies have attacks that are difficult to avoid or SOUL is scarce.

How to Acquire

Found at the very end of the Ancestral Mound, after killing the Elder Baldur.

Soul Eater and Soul Catcher stack additively with each other, allowing for 22 SOUL per Nail hit for the main Vessel, which is almost enough to cast a Spell after one hit with Spell Twister.
