Gulka 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.
Aggressive plant-life that retracts protectively when danger is near. Spits hard spikey balls when foes are at a distance.
Its leaves are dry and bland. The bud is unpleasantly sour, but oh! The venom in those balls it spits. Exquisite! If you have the time to spare, try drinking some and enjoy the effects.
Gulka Notes & Tips
- A Gulka is a tricky enemy, from a distance it will fire a spiked ball towards The Knight's direction. And once you've approached it, it immediately retaliates into the wall or ceiling it is on, making itself invulnerable to any attacks.
- To kill this enemy, The Knight can reflect the balls it spits back at it with The Nail. Otherwise, The Knight may use a charm that will increase the range of The Nail, such as Longnail, or a spell to hit it from a distance. Gulka cannot retract immediately after spitting, so there is a tiny window where The Knight may be able to hit it in close range, but this is only truly useful against Gulka in hard-to-reach positions, such as the two above the arena where you fight the Massive Moss Charger.
