What to do with Rancid Eggs in Hollow Knight

These things sure do stink.

There are many items, Charms, upgrades, and more to be found in the Metroidvania Hollow Knight. While many have obvious uses, some are vague. One of these is the Rancid Egg, which may leave you wondering what to do with Rancid Eggs in Hollow Knight.

Rancid Eggs can be given to an NPC named Confessor Jiji. Once traded, Jiji will summon your Shade from wherever it is in Hallownest, preventing you from having to seek it out. You will still need to defeat the Shade if you want to recover your Soul and Geo from it.
