* KnightOfCerebus: Hollow Knight is never a cozy, fluffy journey to begin with, but before the Broken Vessel, it seems that the story's mostly about a mysterious little Knight on an adventure in a lost kingdom... The Broken Vessel shows that there's more to it all. Plague, gods, dreams and [[spoiler:the origin of the Knight himself.]]

* TheOldGods: The Seer implies that she created the moths and did so long before the King came and founded his kingdom. Chances are that the reason the Radiance was never truly forgotten was that a few moths have been left since then.

* MadArtist: Grimm views himself as a performer first and foremost, and is quite prone to theatrics between bouts of acrobatic violence that he and the Troupe refer to as "dancing".

* {{Foil}}: Could be considered one to [[spoiler:the Radiance. Both are powerful, [[MacabreMothMotif moth-like ]] creatures [[DreamWalker tied to the dreaming world,]] but while the Radiance is an [[GodIsEvil evil,]] [[GreenEyedMonster petty]] entity of [[LightIsNotGood light]] that acts as the god of "good" dreams, Grimm is a [[AffablyEvil polite]], theatrical creature of [[DarkIsNotEvil dark]] and [[PlayingWithFire fire]] known as the "Nightmare King", which may make him the Main/{{Satan}} to the Radiance's Main/{{God}}.]]

* MacabreMothMotif: [[CartoonCreature While his species is not explicitly named in-game]], it's possible that he's a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calyptra_(moth) Calyptra moth]], AKA the vampire moth, given that he resembles a classic vampire and is [[spoiler:hanging upside-down like a vampire]] when the player returns with the final flames for the Grimmchild. [[spoiler:Reinforced by the fact that moths are connected to the Dream, and Grimm is associated with the Nightmare]], though this leaves several questions related to the history of the moths unanswered.

[[spoiler:Reinforced by the fact that moths are connected to the Dream, and Grimm is associated with the Nightmare]], though this leaves several questions related to the history of the moths unanswered. While how much "menace" applies to his intentions is ambiguous, he's certainly dangerous enough in a fight and even his larva-like Grimmchild can be surprisingly aggressive towards non-hostile bugs for [[EvilDetectingDog better]] or worse.



* AnimalisticAbomination: In general looks, she has a lot of Moth-like elements in her design, but it's obvious she's far beyond anything like that.

* AcidAttack: It gains two acid-based attacks in a patch. The blobs stick around for a while after hitting the floor, restraining movement.
