Vessel Fragments in Hollow Knight are parts of Soul Vessels, which increase your maximum SOUL by 33% upon collection.

Three Vessel Fragments make up a Soul Vessel, and there are nine Vessel Fragments in total to collect. Collect them all and you double your maximum SOUL.

Think of SOUL as your magic meter. You gather it by attacking enemies, and use it to cast Spells or use Focus, your primary heal.

In this guide we're going to detail the locations of every single Vessel Fragment in Hollow Knight so you can cast more Spells. Collecting Vessel Fragments also counts towards 100% completion, so it's a task well worth undertaking for completionists too.
