Pilflip 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.
Odd creature that adapts to changing situations by flipping over and using the limbs on the other side of its body.
Adaptability is an important survival skill. If a problem seems insurmountable, try approaching it from a different angle.
Pilflip Notes & Tips
- A Pilflip can be found patrolling an area and will become hostile upon hitting it.
- Pilflips are unique - upon striking it, it will flip onto its back and will chase The Knight by hopping which deals damage upon contact. Once you strike it again, it will flip back to its original form and return back to patrolling its area.
- The name "Pilflip" is a joke, as it accounts for their flipping, but it also can be flipped around to spell the same thing. This phenomenon is known as a palindrome.
