    Even in the trailer of Dead Cells' new Dlc, there is a character from Hollow Knight. I think Everyone Is Here Dlc will have many different references, powers, swords from many different games.

    As someone who plays a lot of dead cells, the pure nail is a really interesting weapons, less for the upwards and downwards attacks, and more for the fact that it's the only melee weapon that allows you to move while attacking

    There's a really obscure reference in hollow night to a real-world category of creatures called "insects". Like, if you look really hard, you start to see insects in the game. Pretty sure I must be the first person to notice this one.

    Just Shapes and Beats has a boss with Spiderdance song remix, from Undertale.

    I played Dead Cells yesterday for the first time but didn't know about the crossover, so when I saw the bench I went "haha this is kinda like Hollow Knight :)" and got the Pure Nail. needless to say, a welcome surprise.

    It's not really a game in itself, but in the Calamity mod for Terraria, you can obtain all the forms of the knights nail, including the normal and awoken dream nail which lets you use attacks such as great slash, dash slash, cyclone slash, and grants the projectile effect of gruberfly's elegy

    You missed Burger King. If you go to Burger King and order a burger, the burger usually has meat in it. Meat is organic and comes from living creatures. Bugs like the knight are living creatures. Therefore, Burger King has a Hollow Knight reference.

    I don’t know if you knew this, but there’s a super obscure Hollow Knight reference on Reddit by an RPer known as Princess_SHAW.
    The only things connecting him to Hollow Knight are literally everything on his profile, so I understand that many people didn’t quite get the reference. He’s not very prevalent on Reddit, and only has 110,000 karma. Amateur numbers, I know. He also doesn’t appear too often on the subreddit normal Hollow Knight fans go to, but instead the sad garbage dump known as r/HollowKnightMemes, where the lowest of the low go to wallow in filth and grime.
    (I hope you understand this is sarcasm, as I love both Princess_SHAW and the subreddit, 110,000 is a CRAP TON of karma, and he is very prevalent.)
