Soul Warrior 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.

Where these strange warriors go, whispers follow them. Not only are they skilled with a nail, they can also use some strange power to shift suddenly from place to place. Stay on guard.

Soul Warrior Strategies

Strategy Writeup

Soul Warrior is a mini-boss that is encountered in the Soul Sanctum and in the Colosseum of Fools. Soul Warrior will teleport and dance around the arena and follow up with an attack, it is best to follow up with an attack once it executes a drop attack or after its dash attack where you can jump and execute a downward attack.

Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Phase 1
Dive Attack Soul Warrior will teleport up into the air above The Knight and dive down for a slash attack. This attack can be evaded easily since this attack doesn't have any AOE attack but instead only deals damage upon contact. Simply keep a distance from where it will land and jump in for the attack.
Dash Attack Soul Warrior rushes in forward with a slash attack. It is a mid-range attack and it can be avoided with a long jump and following it up with a downward slash to deal attack.
Orbs if Soul Similar to the Soul Master's attack, Soul Warrior summons a homing orb that chases The Knight. It can only disappear once it lands on a surface, it is recommended that you try to evade towards the Soul Warrior's direction in order to fake out the direction of the orb and for it to quickly land on a surface.
Summon During the battle, Soul Warrior will summon either a Folly or Soul Twister. Follies can appear in numbers, so be sure to quickly eliminate the Follies summoned for you to keep your attention towards the Soul Warrior.
