Zote the Mighty
|Location||Colosseum of Fools|
Zote the Mighty 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.
A self-proclaimed Knight, of no renown. Wields a nail he carved from shellwood, named "Life Ender."
Some rare creatures are so weak, so helpless, so inept and so irritating that hunting them gives no pleasure.

Zote the Mighty Strategies
Zote appears in multiple areas in Hallownest where he is always caught up in danger and in need of rescuing. In the Colosseum of Fools he appears as the boss in the last wave in the Trial of the Warrior. You don't need to waste your resources here, as Zote only has two movements, a long jump that allows him to bounce off walls (but eventually he trips) and a dash attack. His attacks will only knock back The Knight.
The goal is to try and save him once again, and in order to do that you must defeat him. Simply strike him with your Nail. Defeat him and it will unlock new events where later he returns to Dirtmouth.
Attacks & Counters
|Leap||Zote jumps in place and on walls that allow him to bounce off the surface but trips in the middle of jumping|
