Dream No More Walkthrough
To acquire this ending, you will need to obtain the Kingsoul charm that will later be replaced into the Void Heart. The Kingsoul is separated into two fragments where one can be obtained from The White Lady in Queen's Gardens and the other can be looted from the corpse of The Pale King in the White Palace.
Now, once you have the Kingsoul head to the bottom left side of The Abyss, where the floor will open a path which will lead towards the Birthplace. Simply follow the path until you've reached the end where you will find a broken egg, strike it with the Awoken Dream Nail to be ported into a memory that involves the Vessels and The Pale King which will allow you to acquire the Void Heart.
After that is done and you have defeated the Dreamers, make your way to the Temple of the Black Egg to face the Hollow Knight- you will also find Hornet outside the entrance, but she mentions that she cannot join you since its aura will only drain her strength but if the opportunity arises, she will aid you in combat. Continue into the temple where you will face the Hollow Knight.
Once you are in the battle and have weakened the Hollow Knight, Hornet will jump in to help and restrain the Hollow Knight, instead of striking the Hollow Knight with The Nail, immediately use the Awoken Dream Nail to be transported into the Hollow Knight's mind to face The Radiance.
After striking her one last time and successfully defeating her, the battle will end with The Knight shifting into his Shade and completely destroys The Radiance. A short cinematic will follow, where you'll find Hornet surviving and wakes up to find that The Infection has been expelled and sees The Knight's shell broken in half - which implies that The Knight has returned to the void or has died in battle. Acquiring this ending unlocks the Dream No More Trophy/Achievement, completes not only the quest but the game as well.
