Oblobble 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.
Larger cousin of the Obble. Pairs with a mate for life and will never leave its side.
Having a mate by your side... one that will never leave you until death. Strange. No mate has ever come forth to stay by my side...

As soon as you start this battle, you will be faced with two Oblobbles. Simply focus on one Obbloble first and try to follow it if it switches places with the other. They are quite slow in movement, however, their main attack of shooting multiple acid blobs are tricky. The direction of where the blobs will come from is random and it comes out literally around the Obbloble. Whenever it executes the attack, it will remain in its position and takes about 2-3 seconds long before it stops and flies around and towards another spot. Taking your time is wise and focusing on the direction of the blobs is recommended in order to avoid any damage and after it executes the attack, you can quickly dive in to attack while it flies around. However, if you want to be aggressive, using ranged Spells like Vengeful Spirit, Shade Soul, or equipping charms that will increase the range of the Nail will allow you to consistently deal damage and kill one of the Oblobbles.
Once one of the Obblebes die, it will enter a frenzied state where it will acquire a boost of health and an increase of movement and attacks. Again, using your spells in this battle will quickly get the job done, so having Charms that add buffs to The Knight's spells such as Shaman Stone or Spell Twister will help.
Attacks & Counters
|Acid Spray||The main and only attack of the Oblobble is where it shoots multiple small blobs of acid around its body and in random directions. It's a matter of watching the direction of the blobs and avoiding it with the right spacing in order to evade it. While the Oblobbles telegraph this attack, they will not move and remain in their position.|
|Fly||Oblobbles will fly continuously after executing their main attack. They fly slow but bounces off walls and deal damage upon contact. Keep your distance and try to use offensive Spells or charms that grant The Knight an increase of range for its basic attacks for a safe play.|
|Frenzy State||If one of the Oblobbles dies, the other will enter into a frenzied state. It does not obtain additional attacks but has a health boost and increased speed for its movements and attacks. Usage of spells from a distance will do the trick to quickly eliminate it.|
The Oblobbles are larger siblings to the Oblobble species, these two are different since they were isolated and raised within the Colosseum to take part in the battle against the gladiators. They are also consumed by The Infection which makes their personality even more dangerous to anyone or anything it fights.
