Kingsoul Void Heart

Kingsoul is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It generates 4 SOUL every 2 seconds. It also opens an area at the bottom of the Abyss where it can be turned into Void Heart.


Kingsoul is a fairly useful Charm for exploration and platforming challenges, being superior to Hiveblood in that it can recharge SOUL for healing even with full Masks. However, the high Notch cost prevents other useful Charm combinations from being equipped.

Because Kingsoul allows gaining SOUL without having to hit enemies with the Nail, it can be effective for those who are both patient and prefer to cast Spells. This approach is especially useful when delivering the Delicate Flower, as engaging enemies directly can be risky.

This Charm is primarily only equipped to unlock the Birthplace at the bottom of the Abyss, after which it is permanently replaced by Void Heart.

Wearing Kingsoul unlocks extra dialogue with the White Lady.

How to Acquire

Kingsoul is obtained after getting both White Fragments. The left half of Kingsoul is given by the White Lady in the Queen's Gardens, the right half is taken off the body of the Pale King after completing the White Palace.

After getting both halves, the Kingsoul is automatically created and replaces the slot where the half of the Kingsoul previously resided.

White Lady Ahh! So it bears our once-fractured soul, now complete. Such strength, such resolve, such dedication! Is it more than simply a Vessel? I almost feel like I'm once again in the presence of my beloved Wyrm.

The Kingsoul... What is at the heart of it I wonder? If its curiosity wills it, it should seek out that place. That place where it was born, where it died, where it began...
