Marmu is a Warrior Dream Boss in Hollow Knight. Bosses are special Enemies that feature their own arena, a large amount of health, and a variety of unique moves and abilities. You will need to perform multiple attacks such as using The Nail and Nail Arts along with the Spells and Abilities in order to defeat them. Some bosses are capable of entering into a state of stagger after landing a number of attacks on them.

As soon as you encounter a boss, its name will appear on the screen, the music will change into a boss battle theme, and usually,  paths connecting the arena will close or will be blocked leaving you no choice but to face these devastating and unique foes.


Lingering dream of a fallen warrior. Protector of the Queen's Gardens.

If you believe in something as hard as you can, with your eyes shut tight... eventually it will come true! - Marmu

Marmu Strategies

Strategy Writeup

Marmu only has one attack, he will curl into a ball and charge towards The Knight and simultaneously teleport. Marmu can easily be countered by staying at one corner and hitting him with The Nail to knock him back. Equip the Mark of Pride paired with Longnail and Quick Slash to maximize the range and speed of the Nail whenever The Knight swings his weapon.

Another strategy to quickly finish the battle is to have Defender's Crest paired with Spore Shroom equipped in order to conjure a toxic cloud that deals damage over time.
