Hidden Hermit is a non-playable Cookie in Cookie Run. Although it never appears in any of the gameplay, it always comes around whenever players needs some tip in the Cookie Run Newsletter. It will appear most of the time when a new content has arrived to promote the respective content to the players.
It was first introduced on October 20, 2014, where Edge of the World (Cookie Run's 3rd season) was launched. Knowing that some players have trouble in collecting coins, the Hidden Hermit springs out of hiding to give players official tips to collect coins in Cookie Run Newsletter, known previously on unofficial sites.
On November 28, a section of the game notice added some times featuring the Hidden Hermit giving players tips on how to maximize the game.
Although its tips are extremely useful for some, it may become irrelevant as time goes by.
