Bestiary
Flying sentry of Hallownest. Patrols the heights of the vast cavern in which the city was built.

Dances through the air just out of reach until it spots an opening, then swoops in for a decisive strike. If you're confident, wait for it to come to you then counter-attack.

Dialogue Bottom

Winged Sentries are enemies in Hollow Knight. They are highly-trained flying sentries of Hallownest, patrolling the City of Tears and the areas around it.[1][2]

Behaviour and Tactics

It only has one attack; a forward dash strike. It floats in the air near The Knight before swooping down at them.

It is advised to try and kill it with ranged Spells before it can attack.

It can also be easily dispatched by nail-jumping on it as it has no upward attack
