Massive Moss Charger is a 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.


Family of creatures that have learnt to bulk up with moss and live as one.

There is strength in numbers, yes, but these creatures never had much strength to begin with. Cut through their trickery.

Massive Moss Charger Strategies

Strategy Writeup

The Massive Moss Charger is an easy battle that can be dealt with immediately. It only has two attacks which are a charge attack and a leaping attack. It will always start off with burrowing underneath the ground and will emerge after a brief moment and will follow up with either of the attacks. Just keep in mind to stand and stay in the middle of the arena and wait for it to emerge since it will always keep its distance before it attacks. If it charges in, quickly jump and perform a downward attack, if it leaps into the air, execute a dash towards the opposite direction and retaliate for an attack.

You could use your spells and other charms here if you choose to do so, but having the Quick Slash charm equipped and upgrading The Nail is enough to defeat this boss.


Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Phase 1
Charge Attack Similar to a regular Moss Charger, it will emerge from the ground and will charge towards The Knight and will burrow itself back into the ground. It can simply be avoided by jumping over it.
Leap and Flop Instead of charging in for an attack, this massive moss charger can leap into the air right after emerging from the ground and will land on its belly for a belly-flop that deals damage upon contact. It is recommended to not jump but instead dash towards the opposite direction as it leaps into the air.
