Warrior fighting for glory in the Colosseum of Fools. Flies just out of an opponent's reach then darts in for the kill.

What do they hope for, these warriors fighting in the Colosseum? Are they slaves, or prisoners, or do they freely choose to fight?

Dialogue Bottom.png

Winged Fools are enemies in Hollow Knight. These winged warriors fight other bugs to the death in the Colosseum of Fools.[1]

Behaviour and Tactics

They hover outside of the Knight's reach, then lunge toward them in an arc, slashing their weapon.

This pattern is easy to predict and follow, simply jump over the attack or dash through it and hit them on the recovery. They can also be defeated by using the Mantis Claw to climb up the walls of the arena and staying above them while slashing downwards. As they have no upward attacks, they cannot retaliate while the Knight is still able to deal damage.

Spells help to chip at their health before going for the kill.

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

Corpses in Kingdom's Edge:

  • ...Can't...Lose?...
  • ...Fools...

Location

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