  • The Knight’s design is taken from Team Cherry’s first game, Hungry Knight, which was made during a Game Jam that started the company.
    • While the two games are very different, Team Cherry has stated that they “liked the main character and the general aesthetic so much that [they] fleshed it out and expanded on it.”[20]
    • This plan was put forward through the conceptual “Hungry Bug” artworks done by Ari Gibson, which helped visualise and shape the world of Hollow Knight.[21]
    • Mister Mushroom makes reference to Hungry Knight in his first dialogue with them, saying “…It’s nice that you were able to help your friend. So you’re not hungry any more?”
  • The Steam Trading Card refers to the Knight as “Hollow Knight”.[22]
  • The Knight has many nicknames used by various characters, notably:
    • “Little Ghost” by Hornet.[23]
    • “(Little) Traveller” by Elderbug, Oro, and the Nailsmith.[24][25][26]
    • “(Little) Wanderer” by numerous other characters such as Bretta and Lemm.[27][28]
  • When the Knight has one Mask left, the screen becomes bordered by black lines and Void particles can be seen floating off the Knight. Their posture also changes from upright to a bent over, gasping stance.
    • This posture is removed if the Fury of the Fallen Charm is equipped.
  • Team Cherry has stated that they are not sure how the Knight escaped the Abyss.[13]
