No Eyes 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. Disappeared during the plague.

No Eyes Strategies

Strategy Writeup

No Eyes only has one attack which is conjuring ghosts that flies and floats around the arena. These deal damage upon contact. No Eyes moves slow but teleports in random positions. First, you'll want to have Mothwing Cloak or better yet its upgraded version, Shade Cloak so that you can dash through the ghosts. And finally, you'll want to have the charms Quick Slash paired with Mark of Pride to increase the range of the Nail as well as the speed.


Attacks & Counters

Phase 1
Lingering Spirits Dash through the ghosts with the use of Shade Cloak to avoid getting hit.



No Eyes Lore

No Eyes, although his name is unknown, is a warrior of Hallownest who succumbed to The Infection and became mad. Knowing that he would fully succumb once he sleeps and dreams, he, in his madness, decided to strip the eyes of the bugs who followed him, as well as his very own. At some point, No Eyes, alongside the other bugs, died and was laid to rest in the Stone Sanctuary.

      Worst boss imo. All.the spirits spawn from the sides which wouldn't be a problem normally, but because all the platforms are also on the sides your constantly getting hit by things spawning next to you

      • The poor old fellow (he looks to be a former knight) went completely mad... Ripping his own eyes out, and the eyes of others!? I suppose that he figured removing one’s eyes meant losing the ability to dream - which is not true... Was he Infected when this delusion crossed his mind? I can’t remember if that was made clear in-game. It seems like that was the reason for his deranged and violent actions. Though he was very afraid and paranoid, so of course he wasn’t evil, just deluded and insane. His appearance, the crazy overgrown white mad-scientist hair, definitely suits him, that’s for certain. He’s such an eerie, soft-spoken ghost. He even sings you a creepy lullaby/chant, which is ironic. Again, sad, sad, bug... :(
