      I love the beautiful maps of each area that display pins to mark the locations of various objects / characters / bosses. One problem: I can’t seem to find a legend / key to define what the various pins represent! Can anyone help out here?

        Anyone else think Tiso is just a nice person? Although they do think rather highly of themself, I love just how confident they are! (Warning spoilers ahead: If you have not met Tiso past the well in Dirtmouth, do not proceed) I hate that they had to die...it would've been SO fun if you go to fight with Tiso in the Colosseum of Fools!

        • Anyone else absolutely love the Hollow Knight soundtracks? Christopher Larkin is a musical genius. Such a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack. Grimm’s battle themes are like a *major* mood-booster for me - being a Grimmkin, it keeps my flame-soul alive. (^_^)♥️ I also love “Truth, Beauty & Hatred” (Grey Prince Zote’s theme), Pure Vessel’s theme (very ethereal and angelic), “Soul Sanctum” (which contains Soul Master’s incredible battle theme), and “Sealed Vessel” (which honestly brings tears to my eyes as I reflect on the agony of the Hollow Knight - so poignant...) “Pale Court” is great too. I’m curious to know, what does everyone else think of the music? What are your favourite tracks?

          • Wait, what the...? Why is there an icon of *Hornet* atop the main logo for this Hollow Knight wiki? Hornet and the Weaversong charm??? That doesn’t make sense at all... She’s not the main character or protagonist of HK — the Knight is... His face should be there on the logo, along with the Kingsoul or Voidheart charm. It would be nice if whomever made the graphic could simply correct and update it. There’s a completely separate wiki here for “Silksong”, so Hornet being on the logo here with the Weaversong charm as if the original Hollow Knight game is centered around her is flat-out bizarre. Please fix this with a logo that makes sense and honors the Knight as the main protagonist, if possible. (I could make it, but I don’t know how to upload images to this particular website.)

              It would be nice if the Fandom site allowed comments!
              It's always fun looking at complaints and discussions about certain enemies, locations, etc.
