The Thorns of Agony deal damage equal to the base damage of the Nail, capable of hitting twice if within range. The main downside of this Charm is that it deals damage without collecting SOUL, and, in some situations, it may kill easier enemies that would have been useful for regaining SOUL.
The animation for Thorns of Agony also takes up invincibility frames as the Knight cannot be controlled until the animation is over. This reduces the number of invincibility frames that the Knight has to move or reposition.
This charm is particularly useful when fighting multiple enemies at the same time, especially in the Colosseum of Fools.
