Shape of Unn

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Shape of Unn is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It allows for moving while using Focus.


Movement is limited; it is not possible to jump or use any movement abilities during this time and there is still a startup and ending animation for the Focus.

Since Shape of Unn makes the Knight smaller and shorter, it is possible to avoid attacks from certain bosses by ducking under them when healing. For example, this works for the Mantis Lords Dash attack, however, it does not work for Godmaster content Paintmaster Sheo's Paint Spear attack.

How to Acquire

Acquired from Unn beneath the Lake of Unn. Requires Isma's Tear.
