Sprintmaster is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It increases run speed by ~20%.[Note 1]


The additional speed is only applied while the Knight is grounded and not impeded by walk-zones or liquid such as acid or water.

The Sprintmaster Charm can be useful when fighting quick, agile bosses, such as Hornet.

How to Acquire
