Hollow Knight's Most Broken Charm, Explained (And How One Great Hopper Changed Everything)

This video tells the story of Flukenest, both one of the most broken but also powerful charms in Hollow Knight's history. Despite Team Cherry's attempts, the charm remained broken in a variety of ways, even to this day. I go through how this has been utilized in Hollow Knight speedruns throughout the ages, as well as how a single Great Hopper revolutionized various current patch speedruns.
I want to apologize for taking so long in making this video. Hopefully, I'll be able to upload more often in the future.

Good ending: Instead of majorly nerfing flukenest, team cherry decided to heavily buff flukemarm, making it an actually fun fight.

@Bruno Cardin Hollowknight fandom is toxic as fuck. Why? This dude right here. This is what the community does to new players who are confused. I'm a returning player and use guides still. People like you push people away from the game and community which is a damn shame because Hollowknight is something amazing to experience, even if you use guides to help you play the game.

So, yeah I wanted to explore all of the map, I already had shadow spells and pure nail and had defeated Pure Vessel (fairly easy, just get quicknail, unbreakable strength, unbreakable hearth, and steady body. Then tank every attack) and found flukenest I abbyss shrieked him into the shadow realm.

@Kirby I've had quite a simillar situation two days ago when I've quickly defeated Gorb, being able to stand pretty much damage because every two Shade Souls were advamcing them to next phase... I feel kind bad for Gorb. First I left them because I couldn't stand their aoe attacks and then I returned with Shade Soul + Shaman Stone and just blew them away. I guess that during the second playthrough I'm just gonna come earlier and git gud dodging through that fight

It's worth noting that you can kill Galien in Pantheons with 2 casts (over 600 hp), given that he's moving towards you, because of his slow monement and massive hitbox.

The coliseum keeps track of how many enemies you kill before going into the next phase, not WHICH enemies you killed. The glitch makes each kill count as multiple, instantly advancing to the next set of enemies over and over while the previous enemies stay alive. The stronger bugs stay alive, while weak ones are one-shot to progress faster, and then used as substitute for the bosses.

My only problem with Team Cherry is how they balance the charms. I really don't get why things like fragile strength, fragile heart, quickslash and shaman stone can exists but the more fun options like flukenest are made to be worst. I rather have flukenest do way more damage rather than using the boring shaman stone. And that kinda applies with a lot more charms. Spore shroom should do way more damage. All the lifeblood ones should cost 1 notch less. All minions should do a bit more damage and heavy blow should maybe increase your damage slightly? I love the game but i always end up playing with the most boring builds in every playthrough, and i do try using different stuff but is just a heavy auto imposed nerf that it isn't worth it.

@Xerpaderp You see, my problem is that you seem to blame everything on Godhome. Tedious HP, Artificial difficulty, double damage is present through-out the game. If anything most if not all the games bosses are like this. They have arena changes and double damages in their second forms as a form of laziness. Radiance and Absolute Radiance is the best example, as it the difference between the two are just that one is faster than the other. I'd argue that NKG is a garbage made boss, because the only difference is that its faster and does double damage along with minor changes. The game also has a lot of other problems (Bugs/glitches if you will). The change of Awoken Dreamnail is so lazy as well, not even a slight change. A lot of the enemies are just annoying and not fun. All the abilities are just insufferable to use. The pacing of the game almost made me quit. Path of Pain is also really short and doesn't feel like an accomplishment (Its literally just 4 rooms). That goes for most of the things in this game. The game is fucking garbage, and you only realised at godhome. Godhome isn't the only things that have these problems. My argument for it being an indie game is not really "Oh, feel bad for them" but rather "Oh, what did you expect". They are an indie game, of course they aren't going to be putting a lot of work into things, thats what they do.

@Jonathan Flanagan You can actually get True Ending and Normal Ending without dive (You have to get Watcher Knights tho for both those endings). Also how do you get from Tram Pass to Dream Nail if the only to the resting grounds elevator is through Kings Stag. There is also another option which you might not know about, which is to use a skip to get to Blue lake, with your shade and pogo it; if you have seen a speedrun you might know. However you don't get access to CH because of this, so the only real option is to get Lantern I presume (Which is extra annoying cause no Lemm). After that you would get monarch wings and basically go everywhere for all the items. This sounds interesting I want to try it, maybe even speedrun it.

@Xerpaderp Good Copypasta, Cope
Xerpaderp Dia atrás
@J-maginary First of all, you're wrong right out the gate - I don't care about silksong at all to be honest. I only care about games once they're released, and pretty much forget about them until then. Regardless, you're doing a lot of strawmanning here and ignoring what was actually said - I didn't demand a new soundtrack, I said it would have been nice if they *had* put more effort *into* godhomes soundtrack. There's a big difference there. As to the boss design, I actually like it a lot - I wouldn't say the base game is excellent if I didn't. The sisters in particular is an extremely great fight and very well done, even in the godhome iteration - my criticism of godhome is because most of the bosses in it *are not* extremely well done and are simply matters of hp bloat or tedious arena changes. I've noted that the good godhome fights are also things like the two bosses at once with complimentary fighting styles and whatnot, too. You seem to be completely ignoring discussion in favor of strawmanning it as "reee you just hate godhome reee its an indie studio reee dont like dont play reee." Every game, no matter who made it or how, is open to criticism and this whole mindset you have is *absolutely* clownish and you should feel bad for having such a childish, immature and frankly braindead approach to critical thinking and game analysis. You're rushing to defend a game you like, from a person who *also likes that game*, and to defend a studio you like "because they're indie" - grow up you absolute white-knighting goon. TLDR: people like you are why discussion about video games is so impossible to begin with.
Jonathan Flanagan
@Xerpaderp santiago is right, literally nothing hits for more than two masks in one hit unless you're either overcharmed, doing the harder re-fights of white defender grey prince zote, or doing ascended bosses in the hall of gods, all of which are completely optional with minor world changes and bragging rights as rewards.

I gotta say it: Flukenest is a true fluke of nature, 'cause its nature is to fluke in and out of spaghetti code, and fluke back into glitchy speedrunner experience as the fluke it is. "For Fluke's Sake!" said Team Cherry every time they patched the game.

I had no idea Flukenest’s history was this crazy. All I knew was the Lifeblood nerf and a bit of multi-hit jank you could do with it (it can trigger multiple Zote kills to speed up Eternal Ordeal for example.) I wasn’t aware the infamous high damage Flukenest actually came from Hidden Dreams and that the lingering hitboxes existed in Godmaster. Thank you for taking the time to document all of the Charm’s history!

Tbf. Some of that shit was a bit to silly.
I found a glitch for being overcharmed but without taking double damage. Just put the charm you want (overcharmed) then take a new charm slot by beating grimm or buying it for example. So be 2 slot overcharmed or more before gaining the new slot and that’s it. You can go to 14 slot max

Clearly the best charm is wayward compass 🙄
Champion of the Dark Soul
@SCP-Phenomenon every other game gives you a location marker by default because it is quality of life Hollow Knight does not have this universal game mechanic and it is a stupid decision that makes the game more annoying to play but not harder. Same for gathering swarm item magnet is at worst unlocked with a skill point in some games but once you have it you have it in Hollow knight it's an accessory that takes up a slot that could be used for something else only so you don't have to manually pick up money. Making the game more annoying is the only effect not having a default item magnet or unlocking a key item that gives it to you permanently.
SCP-Phenomenon 2 dias atrás
@Champion of the Dark Soul I mean, idk it's not like it has to be there the entire time you're playing It's most helpful when you unlock a new location and need to explore, that's when you remember certain helpful routes and once you've done that you can take it off lol

Programmer: the "spaghetti code" checked for and executed the enemy kill code for each of the flukes. So standing on an enemy, many would hit at the same frame and execute the kill code simultaneously. Nothing in the code checked if the enemy was actually dead before running thereby letting it run as many times as called.

Aeternalis the Abyssal Alchemist
Huh, so back when I was active on the Hollow Knight discord, i was making a mod that was meant to rebalance charms (of course never really went anywhere because I am absolutely awful at programming), I actually had this happen while testing different damage numbers with flukenest. I had assumed it was specific to Traitor Lord or other enemies whose hitboxes frequently changed shape. It didn't really occur to me to check if the issue was flukenest itself, since as a very unskilled programmer I thought that it was happening as a result of changing flukenest, and ultimately commented flukenest's damage buffs out of the mod, since I couldn't figure out how to make that not happen. Looking at the message history on discord, that was all the way back on the 21st of November in 2018... It's quite nostalgic to see that bug resurface like this after all this time.

Only way to fix it, is to replace it with ‘Fluke Hermits purpose’ all it does is make empty boring areas feel more interesting, because you never know where it is, and it’ll leave your inventory every single time you enter one of those rooms, examples include -City of tears bridge -mantis village (after beating mantis lords) -other boring walking spots.

Great video. I love hollow knight and never knew this charm was so bugged! Feedback: there are several times in the video where there is nothing in focus on the screen for several seconds, and it makes it very hard to look at. I understand the blurred background gameplay with info in the foreground, but when the entire screen is blurred background with no foreground present for several seconds, it is physically hard to look at. Examples: 4:06 4:58 6:41 6:50

Awhile ago, before the sequel was announced in any way, I had a theory that the free content update and post-free updates for this game were being spun into their own game, which eventually became SilkSong; essentially all the pieces were in place to confirm my theory based on what was originally promised for content on the original kickstarter for Hollow Knight. I didn't know about the spaghetti code or how broken the game was at the time, but understanding the code issues now, it makes sense why they took the ambitions of longer-term HK updates and spun it off into a different game. Not only would the update route bring a lesser product to an aging game, but a new game would be a fresh start with a better plan; not to mention the generational gap between the first and second games, it's just better to push a new game than to forever port the original, especially when the studio has more experience, and probably more tools as well, that would make a newer platform better. Honestly, just imagine what would've happened if Silksong's content was the originally planned updates for Hollow Knight. Second playable character, new lands, etc., it'd be more spaghetti on top of old spaghetti. It'd eventually become a sunken cost fallacy of spaghetti code, Team Cherry would've ran into a wall that was building a new game, whether that would've been a sequel, or HK remade from scratch to comb out all the issues in the code, and I think we can all understand why a sequel was a better choice of the two. We'll probably see a similar situation once Silksong itself starts becoming an end of life project, except we won't see undelivered promises on an overly ambitious crowdfunded project. All games do eventually run into this issue, you can only stack so much new code onto old code and hotfix all of it to make it workable, why do you think so much modern game content is aesthetics, simple additions, or entire map revamps, coding is really just a poorly built jenga tower unless you have someone who'll actually hyper-optimize the code as a whole, which is rare. I can't wait for Silksong to finally come out and see how Team Cherry handles that game, if it's more of the same or if they've learned better coding practices.

I'm really mad that they took this cool build option… made it cost 3 notches, made it do less damage than the spell it replaces while having less range, and decided that was a good patch. The fact that they broke it again with their spaghetti code and left it viable is cool, but they really shouldn't have tried to be so insanely mean to it in the first place.

Eeeuuugh Flukemarm. Flukemarm is why I give people a parisitophobia warning before recommending this game. xD Anyways, love Team Cherry and can't fault them on this. It's probably really hard to make any true metroidvania without some weird balance irregularities, esp. if equipment and abilities can interact in ways you might not have foreseen (La Mulana did this too IIRC) and Hollow Knight is still absolute top-tier game design in so many ways. I can't wait for Silksong.

If I've learned anything about spaghetti code from valve is that when you patch spaghetti code, it will only come back stronger.

As somebody who uses this charm in P1 runs, this charm is broken.

Can't wait for the release of silksong to somehow break flukenest even more

I tried several bosses on Switch (I think that's it) and it didn't seem to help. It it only broken for PC's or old patches?

It kinda bugs me that Team Cherry actively fights against their speedrunning community.

They do the optimal Dev route. Use speed runners to find major gamebreaking glitches and patch the easily accessible ones so new players won't accidentally break the game.

i mean it’s less they fight against speed running and more that they patch game breaking glitches. remember they have random glitchless skips like pogoing off of random stuff. and that’s cool. i do get the annoyance but remember that a lot of these glitches did actually make casual play a bit more broken. so like idk

I don't think we'll get anything like flukenest in silksong, i think team cherry has caught on to our game.

I agree. We should all slaughter Great Hoppers for no reason.

Love how “speedrunners”panic when their glitche(at)s are patched since they lack the skill to break any record playing properly

Honestly I'd rather seek balance for Wayward Compass than nerfing Flukenest. Who would want to take their opportunity to grow into alluring goddesses?
