Quick Links

There are a lot of enemies in Hollow Knight - over 150, in fact. You can encounter them pretty much anywhere in the dangerous world of Hallownest, and while they're all interesting in their own right and require different ways of taking them down, keeping track of all of them can be difficult. That's where the Hunter's Journal comes, as it will actually document and log all the information about every enemy or interesting thing you come across in this world.

RELATED: Hollow Knight: Every Area Of The Hallownest, Ranked

The challenge presenting by finding each and every entry is an achievement in and of itself, so knowing how many enemies you need and where to find them is crucial to conquering this feat. This guide will go through each and every possible entry that can be put into the Hunter's Journal, though there are a few things to note:

Not every single entry counts toward truly completing the journal, the signs of completion being the Keen Hunter achievement and the Hunter's Mark gifted by the Hunter himself. These increase the total number of entries to 168, though there are technically only 164 because four of those - the Hunter's Mark, the Void Idol, the Seal of Binding, and the Weathered Mask - do not increase the entry count at all.
