Massive Moss Charger

From Hollow Knight Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Family of creatures that have learnt to bulk up with moss and live as one.

There is strength in numbers, yes, but these creatures never had much strength to begin with. Cut through their trickery!

The Massive Moss Charger is an optional mini-boss in Hollow Knight. It is found in Greenpath.

In-game events

The Massive Moss Charger can be found below a ruined structure, west of the entrance to Fog Canyon. It first appears as a large bush but starts shaking as the Knight approaches and eventually roars before giving chase. Once defeated, it is revealed to be a group of Moss Chargers (without their moss) which scurry away and crawl underground.

Fighting the Massive Moss Charger is not necessary to progress past its room.

Behaviour and Tactics

The Massive Moss Charger has two attacks:

  • Charge: The Massive Moss Charger charges forward, much like a regular Moss Charger
  • Belly-flop: The Massive Moss Charger hops in the air toward the Knight and slams into the ground

Go to timestamp 8:04 for Masive Moss Charger tactics

The Knight is not locked into this fight, meaning that it is possible to escape the fight at anytime.

Unlike regular Moss Chargers, hitting it does not expose the vulnerable bug within the moss.

Standing near the edge of the room often results in the Massive Moss Charger getting stuck on the edge for a fraction of a second during its Belly-flop attack. This can be used to buy time and dash out of the way.

Having the Quick Slash and/or Heavy Blow Charms equipped means Massive Moss Charger can be defeated solely by rapidly attacking it during its Charge animation.
