Warrior fighting for glory in the Colosseum of Fools. Uses crescent-shaped blades to cut down foes.

You can hit this warrior's spinning weapons out of the air, straight back into them! Useful if they manage to corner you.

Dialogue Bottom.png

Sturdy Fools are enemies in Hollow Knight. These warriors fight in the Colosseum of Fools using their crescent-shaped blades.[1]

Behaviour and Tactics

Sturdy Fools are very similar to Husk Miners in behaviour and attacks. However, they are moderately slower, with more windup behind their attacks. The Sturdy Fool has two attacks:

  • Slash: Lunges and swipes at the Knight when in close range.
  • Weapon Toss: Tosses its weapon in an arc at the Knight.

When they attack in melee range, simply jump over them and down-strike them for an easy hit. Hitting the blade back at the Sturdy Fool or any other enemy does 10 damage.

In Colosseum of Fools:

  • You cannot harm me!
  • I am the strongest!
  • I'll crush it into the dirt!
  • Fear me, warrior!

In Warriors' Pit:

  • ...Why does it disturb me?...

Corpse in Kingdom's Edge:

  • ...Fools...

Location

This enemy is only found in the Colosseum of Fools, in the Trial of the Fool and the Trial of the Warrior.

Trivia

Bather 2.png

  • A non-aggressive Sturdy Fool can be found bathing, splashing it causes it to raise its hand and grunt. Using the Dream Nail on this Sturdy Fool gives unique dialogue.
