Hollow Knight - Grimm Troupe Guide

This guide is for the latest Hollow Knight update: The Grimm Troupe. This boss fights are challenging, so I recommend you start this quest when you are already fairly strong/experienced.

Other Hollow Knight Guides:


Spoiler Free Guide



Go to this location in the Howling Cliffs and break the wall. After you are done lighting the fire, go back to Dirtmouth. Don't watch the videos if you want to go through the quest by yourself.

Grimm Troupe Full Video Guide



I recommend you make a copy of your save file when you start the Grimm Troupe quest line so you can perform the ritual and banish it (both cannot be done in the same save file).



Divine and charms



Divine will transform your fragile charms into unbreakable charms, for a price (1:47).

  • Heart: 12000 Geo
  • Greed: 9000 Geo
  • Strength: 15000 Geo

Nymm and Banishment



Nymm can be found in the Beast's Den after you beat the Troupe Master Grimm (follow the flame on the map). He will hand over one flame and give you the opportunity to end the ritual (10:11). Doing this will cause the Grimm Troupe AND Divine to go away permanently.

Banishment Achievement



If you choose to end the ritual two things will happen:

  • You will unlock the banishment achievement.
  • Nymm will stay behind and give you the Carefree Melody charm (if you talk to him): "Token commemorating the start of a friendship. Contains a song of protection that may defend the bearer from damage."

If you choose to follow the video and NOT banish the Grimm Troupe, you will have the opportunity to fight the Nightmare Kind Grimm. It is a difficult fight, but very fun (see video below). Doing this will allow you to keep the Grimmchild Charm and the opportunity to unlock the Ritual achievement.

Fighting Troupe Master Grimm





Troupe Master Grimm is fairly difficult. His attacks do 1 damage and are fairly straight forward. Don't panic like I did in the video. At the end of each phase (the boss will transform into bats) you will have enough time to heal 3 times, if you're quick.

Grand Performance Achievement



Beating this boss fight will earn you the Grand Performance achievement.

Fighting Nightmare King Grimm





Yep, this is a tough one. Be prepared to die. A lot. Each attack does 2 damage. The flames lingering behind his body will damage you as well. Similar to the first boss, you will have enough time to heal 3 times between each phase. Be patient, learn his moves, and don't give up.

Ritual Achievement



Beating this boss will earn you the Ritual Achievement.

Path of Pain



There is a new (secret) platforming challenge in the White Palace called the Path of Pain. It can be found behind a breakable wall. The video below shows how to find the Path of Pain.



The New Charms



W.I.P.

New NPC Interactions



  • If you activate the Grimm Troupe flame, and equip the Grimm(child) charm, go talk to the White Lady. 
  • After you convert all your fragile charms to unbreakable charms with Divine, go visit Leg Eater. 
  • Bretta (talking to Zote) has new dream dialogue.
