Senses the pain of its bearer and lashes out at the world around them.

When taking damage, sprout thorny vines that damage nearby foes.



The thorns will deal damage equal to the base damage of the nail (Fragile Strength will not affect this) and may hit twice if the enemy remains in range. Smaller enemies will tend to be knocked back before the second hit, but large enemies resistant to knockback will take two hits. The main downside of this charm is that it deals damage without collecting SOUL, and in some situations it may kill easier enemies that would have been useful for regaining SOUL.

This charm is particularly useful when fighting multiple enemies at the same time, especially in the Colosseum of Fools.

Not recommended in Fog Canyon as damaging Oomas will make them burst, releasing their explosive core that homes in to the player, dealing high damage.

How to Acquire
