    E) Specialties
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    All weapons have special attacks that can be executed with the A button.
    Some items cannot be found simply laying around the castle; so will appear
    only after defeating certain foes, acquiring certain souls for synthesis,
    and bonuses for having played another Castlevania game. Here's a breakdown
    of these special features:

    6) Secret Items
    -----------------
    
    Name                               How/Where to Find 
    ________________________________________________________________________________
    
    Bell              Obtain the Hippogriff Soul in The Abyss. Return to the bell 
                      Room in the Dark Chapel. Use the Hippogriff Soul to super jump
                      into the large bell on the far left. 
    
    Crown             Go to the long vertical section of the Demon Guest House.
                      Go into the small room that is above the Save Room. There
                      Should be nothing but a Waiter Skeleton and a large chair
                      inside. After the Waiter Skeleton is gone, go to the front
                      of the chair and press up on the D-Pad to sit in it. After a
                      moment, a large crown will appear, a la old school
                      Castlevania. It's worth 5000 points, but sells for half. 
    
    Konami Man        Go to the Cursed Clock Tower. Look for a square room almost
                      entirely bordered with spikes, and has a single Slime and
                      Tanjelly guarding it. Go to the small section in the middle
                      That isn't covered by spikes, then crouch down. After a moment
                      Konami Man will fly across the screen.

    IV. Conclusion
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Well folks, there it is. A complete list of weapons, armor, and items to be 
    found in the game, complete with their stat effects. Who'd of thought all of 
    this stuff would be featured in only one Castlevania game? Anyway, all of these 
    items are just waiting to be found and used against your hapless undead foes. I 
    hope this guide helps you, as figuring out different and effective combinations 
    of items can prove a tad difficult. I hope you enjoyed looking through this, 
    with that CTRL F command right there at your fingertips. In the meantime, keep 
    that DS fully charged, and may your gaming sessions be long and enjoyable.
