Shardmite 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.
Feeds on crystal dust and uses crystallised spines to protect itself from danger.
I don't find this creature particularly notable or interesting. It should learn to fly, or breathe flames, or sing hauntingly. Anything to justify its existence.
Shardmite Notes & Tips
- A Shardmite can be found crawling on the wall and once you are near it, it will spring out its crystal spikes from its back, making it invulnerable to attacks. Striking it quickly before it sprouts its crystals will allow you to kill it off guard.
