Steady Body in Hollow Knight is one out of the 45 Charms that is found in the game.

Charms require Notches and can only be equipped and unequipped while having The Knight sit on a bench.


Steady Body Information

"Keeps its bearer from recoiling backward when they strike an enemy with a nail."

Steady Body is a charm that provides The Knight the ability to stand still if it receives an attack, this reduces the recoil and removes any knockback allowing you to have the opportunity to attack quickly. However, in situations that The Knight is damaged from environmental attacks such as spiked walls, acid water, standing close to an enemy's armour and getting hit while in the air, the knockback and recoil will still apply.

      I feel like this charm is underrated. I've found the 'no-knockback' to be incredibly useful/convenient, especially for one notch.
