Hawkster doesn't grab fruit 100% of the time though. I know he doesn't grab fruit from an enemy killed by Red Knight's RT+Y, but there are times when I kill an enemy with melee and Hawkster just floats there and does nothing.
So while Hawkster is incredibly useful, he's sometimes unreliable as well in my experience.
