Learned bug that adapted the teachings of the Soul Sanctum into a deadly fighting art. Attacks with bursts of electricity.
Supposedly lives on a diet of lumaflies and spends its entire life fighting in the arena or meditating in seclusion. An odd foe.
Volt Twisters are enemies in Hollow Knight. They were scholars of Soul Sanctum who attack using bursts of electricity. They spend their entire lives fighting in the Colosseum of Fools or meditating alone.
Behaviour and Tactics
Volt Twisters teleport around the area, attempting to avoid the Knight. They have only one attack, which consists of them charging up and releasing a series of 8 electric bursts of lightning that spawn at the Knight's location, very similar to one of Uumuu's attacks.
A Volt Twister is most vulnerable during its attack since it remains completely stationary while casting and for a short time afterwards. It is recommended to either attack it with ranged abilities or to charge-up a Nail Art, let it its attack end, and then move in close for the attack.

This enemy is only found in the Colosseum of Fools, in the last trial.
