Elder Baldur is an enemy in Hollow Knight. The enemies are creatures that have succumbed into The Infection and has turned them into hostile beings who are determined to kill anyone who crosses their path. Acquiring the Hunter's Journal allows The Knight to acquire additional notes on an encountered and defeated enemy such as bits and pieces of lore, information on how to deal with the enemy, and information on The Hunter.
Bulky and covered in thick plating. Retracts into itself when attacked.
As they age, these creatures become too heavy and lumpy to roll around freely. Instead, they curl up and hide from the world. What do they think of in there, wrapped up inside of themselves? More carefree times perhaps.

Elder Baldur Notes & Tips
- An Elder Baldur has two kinds of attacks. Since it can no longer move, it occasionally spawns a Baldur and shoots out an infected blob that remains on the ground for a short time. And if you are close enough, it curls into its shell that prevents them from taking any physical damage.
- The use of Spells such as Vengeful Spirit or Shade Soul is the only way to kill these creatures since it penetrates its shell.
