Hiveblood in Hollow Knight is one out of the 45 Charms that is found in the game. These charms are special items that provide The Knight buffs that will help with both traversing Hallownest and battling its foes. Charms require Notches and can only be equipped and unequipped while having The Knight sit on a bench.

Hiveblood is a charm that has health regenerative properties. It aallows The Knight to recover health without the use of SOUL. However, Hiveblood only restores 1 health mask and requires The Knight to not take any damage for 12 seconds.
If The Knight takes damage while regenerating health, they will need to repeat the process and wait for at least 12 seconds without taking any damage for the charm to work. Also, Hiveblood is interrupted if you use SOUL to heal.
Hiveblood can restore Lifeblood Masks gained from Joni's Blessing, but it takes about 24 seconds for the charm to start regenerating.
While the conditions listed above make Hiveblood unsuitable for combat, it can ensure you are virtually immortal in platforming. As long as you take the time to regenerate health, you will never die to environmental hazards again.
- Location: The Hive
- Acquisition: To acquire this charm, you will need to defeat the Hive Knight first. Once you've defeated the Hive Knight, make your way to the room below the arena and continue towards the path while avoiding and fighting off Hivelings, Hive Guardians, and Hive Soldiers. Eventually, you will find yourself at a spiked platform - use the Crystal Heart ability to launch yourself above it, and you will find the charm on the ground.
- Charms can only be equipped and unequipped by using a bench.
- Equip the Carefree Melody charm along with Hiveblood to prevent any interruptions from regenerating Lifeblood Masks.
- Equip Joni's Blessing along with Hiveblood to restore Lifeblood Masks. However, the regenerating time is increased from 12 seconds to 24 seconds.
