They cannot be killed, and only serve as additional platforming tools for the Knight's nail-jump mechanics. Some things in this world appear to us as puzzles. Or enigmas. If the meaning behind something is not immediately evident, though, don't waste any time thinking about it.
Just move on. Do they watch us struggle?. Do you haunt my dreams Or Empty Arena (Reprise) yours? Little Ghost What dreams we share Mister Mushroom : " It's nice that you were able to help your friend. So you're not hungry any more? Embraced the infection and turned against her sisters. Silken charm containing a song of farewell, left by the Weavers who departed Hallownest for their old home.
Tropes R to Z. Rare Random Drop : Essence can be obtained from killing regular enemies, but with a measly 0. The chance increases if you equip the Dream Wielder or if you've spent more essence warping to a Dreamgate than you've earned through random drops, up to a maximum chance of 2. Recurring Riff : "Hollow Knight"Empty Arena (Reprise) theme played at the main menu has multiple renditions and its tune often gets reused in the bosses' soundtracks, such as in "Sealed Vessel".
It also plays over the "Elegy for Hallownest" epigraph at the start of the game. It's probably the Pale King's theme. Many stages reuse the rhythm or tune of other background music. One of which is the theme of Dirtmouth which is heard in the Greenpath track, and the Boss Remixes of the "Decisive Battle" track used by multiple bossesits own distorted version in The Collector's boss fight, and an accordion version played by Nymm. Required Party Member : The Grimmchild is needed to highlight the Nightmare flames on the map and make the Grimmkins appear.
There is also a subversion as the Grimmchild is required to start the boss fight with Grimm, and to enter his dream and challenge his Nightmare King version.
But in both boss fights, the Grimmchild won't spawn despite being mandatory. Respawning Enemies : Minor enemies always respawn after leaving a room.
Tougher ones only respawn after you rest at a bench. Rhymes on a Dime : Whoever wrote the Riddle Tablet. The lines make up a perfect rhyming poem. Right Hand vs. Left Hand : In the Journal entry for Nightmare King Grimmthe Seer states that the dream world used to be one, until it got split and separated the nightmare world. You can tell the connection since Grimm's been producing a similar sprite of the essence, but is colored red instead.
The catch is, while the Seer herself noted the nightmare realm's origins, Grimm never makes mentions of the moth tribe nor the Radiance, who are the key figures in the original dream world. Falling into it causes the knight to take damage and respawn.
Robbing the Dead : You pick up Wanderer's Journals from You obtain the Mothwing cloak from a dead vessel in Greenpath. You obtain Joni's Blessing from Joni's corpse. His ghost may appear, but he will not begrudge you for the act since he became an amnesiac. According to the Hunter, the Husk Guards steal weapons from the remains of other creatures.
RPG Elements : Geo is used to purchase upgrades and key items, and charms are switchable and can change the way the Knight plays by giving them additional properties. Rule of Three : Not quite to Arc Number extremes, but triads appear quite a bit over the course of the game. However, Nosk's buildup may hint at more. Each of them also represent one of the three Nail Arts that the Knight can learn.
The Weaversong Charm summons 3 weaverlings that deal 3 damage per hit. When combined with Grubsong, these weaverlings give 3 Soul for the Knight whenever they damage enemies. Sanity Slippage : Early on, you meet a miner singing to herself next to the Crystal Peak entrance.
The further you go into the game, the more the poor girl loses her mind to the infection, until she becomes a regular husk miner like the ones trapped deep inside Crystal Peak. In a subversion, there are a couple of NPCs who are on the verge of losing their minds when you meet them, but they come to their senses and go back home when talked to. Save Scumming : The game keeps all of your progress when you quit to the menu and respawns you at the last-used bench when the file is loaded.
The player can easily use this tactic to avoid risky situations, especially on low health so as to prevent death and lose all geo to a shade. Only have one mask left? Having trouble with a boss battle but need to return quickly to gather more items? Just reload your save file. However, there is a minor disadvantage, as your soul gauge will be depleted when you load a file. Some plot dialogues with NPCs like Hornet in the Abyss and cutscenes that are normally triggered via Backtracking may also be skipped entirely if you use this tactic.
It is also a common trick used by speedrunners, since it saves a lot of time when you can just teleport to the last-used bench instead of manually backtracking your way back to it. This can also help the player to cheese the Steel Soul Mode. Scarred Equipment : Most official promotional artworks of some characters like the Knight depict their nail weapons in their old, cracked forms.
This is then visible in the actual in-game sprites of the bosses, such as the Watcher Knights and the Hollow Knight. Scenery as You Go : The Dream World, where blocks and platforms rise up as you approach a ledge, and fall again once you run farther from the ledge.
Sealed Evil in a Can : The infection is contained by a vessel that itself is canned inside the Black Egg Temple just below Dirtmouth town. The Seer eventually reveals that Radiance was the original deity of the locals. The infection is how it manifests itself after being sealed for so long by the Pale King. Sequence Breaking : Though the game starts out fairly linearly, it becomes fairly non-linear once the player has acquired the Mothwing Cloak and Mantis Claw, which are the basic mobility tools used in almost every area.
There are also a number of exploits or glitches that can be used to skip through areas, which were discovered but left in the game for advanced players to use in their speedrun attempts. It's intended for the player to have the Desolate Dive ability from the Soul Sanctum before going to Crystal Peak, but purchasing the Lumafly Lantern allows players to access it without ever visiting the Soul Sanctum.
You are expected to explore the City of Tears and get at least one nail upgrade before defeating the Mantis Lords, due to their Beef Gate status. However, it's entirely possible to defeat them with the Old Nail via Cherry Tapping or to go around them in the Fungal Wastes entirely, which will allow you to access Deepnest and the adjacent areas before even going near the city.
It's intended that the Knight travels through Greenpath before eventually finding where it met Hornet near the entrance and fighting her, but careful use of the Vengeful Spirit spell's small amount of knockback can get the knight up to the ledge where she first appears, cutting out most of Greenpath. There's an intentional skip to reach the Watcher's Tower early ordinarily, it's restricted until players have the monarch wings to Double Jump with by pogo-jumping off a statue with Empty Arena (Reprise) nail hit.
The Queen's Gardens are intended to be reached after gaining the ability to swim in acid, but careful use of the Crystal Heart super dash can thread between the acid and vines that would ordinarily kill a player; this was originally due to an oversight, but was left in the game after it was discovered by speedrunners. Although the game became fairly non-linear at that point, advanced players take this as a self-imposed challenge, especially without the lantern. For the player's trouble though, they can unlock the Tram Pass very early into the game.
Late-game enemies can also be killed for their Journal entries and for quickly farming a lot of Geo. A museum of museums. The show goes on, in unconventional ways.

All in all, the mastering process was enough that I can safely call this my own remaster.
Oh well. I'm personally kinda proud of how much I was able to improve the sound on this one. I've been taking upper-level audio classes at school for the last year or so, and I think it really shows in my more recent videos.
While the actual mix of the ALD was quite good there was an almost unlistenable amount of hiss probably from a poor FM signal rather than tape noise.
I have mixed this version together with an audience recording to create what I think is one of the best sounding documents of this year of the NET.
There are a few little oddities due to the nature of the source; a bit of hiss is still present and some very mild artefacting can be heard if you strain your ears but in both cases the AUD source should cover most of them up. During Like A Rolling Stone Bob's vocal mic is mixed to low on the ALD and this is reflected in the mix and improves gradually over the next few tracks. I've checked two tracks with Cool Edit Pro 2 and saw a great frequency.
Perfect stereo and really healthy frequency. Sound damn good as some of the best aduience recording of the Police. Very familiar with a lot of good recordings from the Synch Tour.
Running time : Cover : nope Personal : I was looking for a good Police upload to make and this one is definitely one of the best I have. I've listened to many several parts and didn't find errors but I know that some people here will find something to tell I will go again : "well, sorry".
There's just a fade-in fade-out that I've seen but there was no song between Truth and Shadows according to Rogier Police Page. But there are still two songs missing. The two last. I should have probably not uplaod this one because of that but I think that there's also no way of knowing if there's a complete setlist or just Empty Arena (Reprise) someone is going to upload it if we request on the Mailing list. So if someone has the complete, please upload the last two songs. And that's the best policy, some are okay to share once the rarity rate is gone.
So if this one was a rare Therefore, we could get the two last songs really easily. Which I don't think anybody has heard from Sting. He sings it and it's quite funny. That's also of a big interest of this bootleg. Thank you all for your kind words and I hope you have enjoyed them. I don't have any plans to revisit in the near future but as there are many more SBDs out there feel free to reach out if you have a particular favourite show from the year you'd like to see remixed.
