Hwurmp 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.
Tiny and placid but swells to enormous size when threatened.
Extremely amusing creature.
Hwurmp Notes & Tips
- Hwurmps can be compared to a blowfish, they appear as small beings that float around the area. However, once they make contact by colliding with an enemy, taking damage, or approached by The Knight, these small creatures will bloat up and begin to bounce off walls and objects, dealing damage upon contact, making them dangerous if there are multiple Hwurmps in the area.
- While they are enlarged, they will deflate back into their original form after a short period of time.
