    I know that sometimes people have trouble beating the bosses,  I've
    developed strategies for the bosses that will, hopefully, help you get
    passed them. They helped me get passed them. Good Luck!
    Also, I'm hoping to eventually, make a guide for each boss, for each of
    the modes: vampire killer, magician, fighter, shooter, and thief. (thief
    will probably just be the same as vampire killer)

    12. Special Thanks
    1. Cerberus (level 5+)
    A. When battling Cerberus, you want to have full hearts, and I also
    recomend Holy Water. Also, before you battle him, you want to equip your
    strongest armor, and if you can, have some potions with you. Now, when
    you battling him, you want to turn on your strongest whip attack, either
    fire whip or rose whip, and just whip him and throw Holy Water at him.
    When he flashes, that means he's getting ready to attack, so be ready to
    dodge. He has a couple of attacks. If he flashes red, that means he is
    going to shoot a laser, so if you can, get under or behind him and
    attack him. If he flashes blue, that means he is either going to pounce
    or shoot electric charges. I found that if you put youself right in
    front of him when he pounces, he'll jump right over you and then you
    don't even get a scratch.  After you defeat him, go get double, so that
    you can double jump all you want!
    B. When battling Cerberus in Magician mode, things are a little bit
    harder. Since you life is extremely low, and you dont deal as much
    damage, you'll have to use magic. The way I killed him was pretty cheap,
    but this is what I suggest you do if you can't do it with any other of
    your magics. Just turn into a skeleton and throw bones at him until you
    throw a super bone at him. Kills him in one hit, works like a charm.
    Remember though, that if your about to be hit, quick change back to
    normal so you dont get dealt 9999 damage.
    C. HAHAHA....this was soooo easy. When you go into battle, have a nice
    supply of hearts, and the holy water. What you want to do is chuck two
    holy waters at him, then whip him. When he flashes, he's going to do an
    attack, so be ready. When he jumps up on the platform and does the
    laser, just get behind him and whip him. This boss should'nt be too hard
    for you. Just put it this way..I lost NO life while battling him.
    2. Necromancer (level 10+)
    A. In my opinion, Necromancer can be one of the hardest enemies in the
    game!(besides Dracula)). So, you better have you levels pretty high
    before you fight him. Again, before you fight him, have full hearts, but
    this time, have the crucifix instead of Holy Water. Now, turn on
    anything that will make you stronger, like the rose whip, and enter.
    Now, jump up on the platform and watch out for his little energy orbs,
    and whip him and throw crucifixes at him. When he teleports little
    enemies to the ground, jump down there and kill them by sliding...cus
    you'll need to use the floor later. After you defeat his first form,
    he'll turn into what looks like a flying skeleton. Use the same
    strategy, except when he turns into a flying orb, jump anywhere you can
    to get out of its way, cus it'll deal you quite some damage. When you
    get closer and closer to killing him, he'll start turning into the orb
    more and more, so watch out. After you kill him, go get tackle.
    B. Ok, I got emails from like 3 people giving me this explanation, which
    is, I might add, really good. All you have to do, is when you go into
    battle, turn on Neptune + Black Dog, that way, any damage he tries do
    deal, won't hurt you at all. Just beat him up and get the battle over
    C. This boss also is extremely easy in fighter mode. All you need to do
    is go up to him and whip him, ocassionally throwing crucifixes at him.
    Trust me, he'll be dead in no time, and you'll still have over half your
    3. Iron Golem (level 15+)
    A. In my opinion, this is the easiest boss in the game. All you have to
    do, is equip DSS so that your strengh is higher, and again whip him and
    use crucifixes. Just watch out for when he pounds the ground, jump when
    he does that, otherwise you'll get hurt. Also watch out for the gears
    that fall down from the ceiling. After you defeat him (which shouldn't
    be that tough) go get your kick boots!
    B. I did the same with this boss as I did with the first, just turn into
    a skeleton and throw bones, until you hit him with the ultra bone. Just
    remember that if your about to be hit, quick change back to normal so
    that you dont get killed in one hit.
    C. Ok, this also was an easy boss. All you want is to have crucifix, and
    some hearts. Now what you want to do, is whip him and throw crucifixes
    at him. When he pounds the ground, jump, and then brandish your whip
    when you land so no gears hit you. Also, watch out for his punch thing.
    Just keep whipping him and throwing crucifixes until he's dead.
    4. Adremelech (level 20+)
    A. By the time you get to this boss, have the Jupiter + Golem
    combination (you get 4x invinciblitiy when your hit), otherwise my guide
    to this guy won't do you much good. What you do is turn that on, and
    that way when you get hit with the flying skulls or the fireballs, your
    invincible through the rest of the group, then, after you get hit, whip
    crucifixes at his head, and whip him. Do this as much as you can until
    he's dead. Keep in mind that if your life is getting low, use potions or
    meats before you die!
    B. I thought this guy was pretty tough in Magician Mode. What I did, is
    turned on the Uranus + Thunderbird combo. Then, I would whip crucifixes
    at him until he started one of his attacks, and then did the thunderbird
    summon. If you gettin low on life, turn on the Uranus + White Unicorn
    combination to gain life. Keep on throwing crucifixes and doing the
    thunderbird summon until he's dead.
    C. Ok, for this one, you'll just need to take alot of damage. Make sure
    you have the crucifix, and a nice supply of hearts. Enter the battle,
    and whip him and throw crucifixes. Try to jump the skulls, and dodge the
    fire he shools at you. Also, make sure that you destroy the little
    bubbles that pop up from the ground. Don't worry too much about getting
    hit unless your life is really, REALLY low.
    5. Dragon Zombie (level 25+)
    A. This boss is not one, but two dragons. He is pretty easy, just make
    sure you have max hearts, crucifix, Jupiter card, and salamander card
    before you face him. What you want to do is turn on you fire shield, and
    then stand on the platform in between the two dragons and throw
    crucifixes over, and over, and over until one of them is dead.(focus on
    one at a time). After you defeat one of the minions, turn to the other
    and do the same. If your magic runs low during in the battle, and you
    need it to recharge, go to the alcove at the exit door, they shouldn't
    be able to hit you there. That is the best, and easiest way to defeat
    B. Beating this boss isn't very hard in magician mode, but if your
    careless, YOU WILL DIE...So, what you want to do is walk in there, with
    you Uranus + Cockatrice DSS equipped. Then, jump up on the platform and
    do the summon as many times as you can (until your HP is about 25% or
    you MP is gone). When one of these two things happens, go to the alcove
    by the exit door. Just sit there and let your MP fill up, while healing
    yourself with the Uranus + Unicorn DSS combo. Once your HP and MP are
    full, go back to the platform between the two Dragons, and do the
    Cockatrice summon until they are both dead.
    C. What you want to do against this boss, is stand up on the platform
    between them so that your level with their heads and throw crucifixes so
    that they hit one dragon, and come back and hit the other. Also, try to
    whip them every once and a while. There's not much to this boss. If you
    die, just keep trying.
    6. Death (level 30+)
    A. This is death, the only enemy besides dracula thats been in EVERY
    Castlevania. When facing Death, make sure you have the Manticore +
    Jupiter card combination, max hearts, and the crucifix. When you enter,
    turn on the poisen shield to block the debris that come down at you.
    Then jump up and whip the first form as much as you can, and watch out
    for the arm things that shoot out at you, they deal plenty of damage.
    Also watch out for the balls of electricity he shoots, but those are
    pretty easy to dodge. (the poisen shield should also deal repeated
    damage to him, so that will help). Then, after you defeat his first
    form, he turns into that crawling skeleton monster. Just whip tons of
    crucifixes at it and whip it and it will eventually die. Watch out for
    its ground shake attack though, all you have to do is jump before it
    hits the ground.
    B. This one is a pretty simple concept....mostly. What you want to do is
    go in there with full hearts, crucifix, max mp, max hp etc. etc. Then
    what you want to do is start the battle out by either using your holy
    shield (jupiter + white unicorn) or by using your thunderbird summon
    (uranus + thunderbird). If you choose the shield, then what you want to
    do is throw crucixes at him and whip him until your out of hearts, then
    switch to the summon. If you start out with the summon, you use the
    summon until you run out of MP, then you turn on your shield and go for
    the crucifix and whip thing. His first form will do three things. One,
    little debris will fall from the ceiling, watch out for those.(use you
    shield to block those, if you using the summon, make sure you do
    repeated summons, with almost no break in between so that you cannot be
    hit.) Two, he'll shoot electric orbs at you, they're not hard to dodge
    at all. And three, he'll shoot spears at you. They too, are also pretty
    easy to dodge. After you beat his first form, he'll turn into a crawling
    skeleton monster that does a flailing arm attack, a ground shake attack,
    and again, the debris from the ceiling. You know how to counter the
    debris. To dodge the flailing arms, just don't get too close to him. And
    for the ground shake attack, jump before he hits the ground. Just keep
    using the tactics that you used for the first form on the second form
    until it is defeated.
    C. There are two main parts to this boss. 1: Keep moving, so that the
    little debris from the ceiling don't hit you. And 2: Have the crucifix,
    and lots of hearts. When the battle starts, just whip Death, and
    occasionally throw crucifixes at him. Watch out for the spears he shoots
    out at you, and also for the energy orbs he shoot. Once you defeat his
    first form, walk up the the crawling thing, and whip crucifixes like
    crazy. Just keep throwing them until he is dead, its the easiest part on
    this whole boss.
    7. Camilla (level 35+)
    A. When you face Camilla, make sure you have max hearts, crucifix, and
    the Jupiter + Serpent or Jupiter + Cockatrice DSS combination. When the
    fight starts, go back to the entrance and turn on one of the two shields
    to block the bubbles she shoots at you, and then when she comes close to
    you, throw crucifixes at her and whip her. When she starts to float
    away, jump the the next platform (the high one right next to the
    entryway) and throw somemore crucifixes at her, then stay there until
    she does the laser beam, or water blast. After she does one of those
    attacks, go back to the entryway and wait for her to come back. When she
    comes back, to the same process. Repeat this process until Camilla is
    B. Ok, thank LordDamien27 for this one. When the battle starts, turn on
    invincibility (white unicorn + pluto), and wait until she is about to do
    the laser. Right before the laser starts, jump into the alcove behind
    her and turn on the skeleton (black dog + pluto), and start chucking
    bones until you hit her with a big one. (if you don't get a big one the
    first time, just turn invincibility on and wait for the laser again and
    then try again.
    C. This one was a bit hard for me (possibly cus I was at level 22?).
    Anyway, what I did is when the battle started, I jumped into the
    entrance alcove, and spun my whip to pop the bubbles. When she got
    close, I threw a crucifix or two at her do deal some nice damage. Then,
    when she went over to the other side to do the laser, I jumped up to the
    platform next to the door, and spun my whip to avoid bubbles, and the
    laser. After the laser was finished, I jumped back to the alcove, and
    repeated the process. Do this until she is dead. (keep in mind, you can
    take a LOT of damage in this mode)
    8. Hugh (level 45+)
    A. For this battle, you want to equip the Uranus + Cockatrice DSS so you
    can do the Cockatrice summon. Just keep doing the summon until he is
    dead.(it should only take 2 times). ::Alternate:: If you do not have
    those combinations, all you have to do, is run around and attack him,
    throwing crucifixes every once in a while. When your life gets low, use
    the rock wing to fly up to the corners, and regenerate your life with
    the Jupiter + Mandragora. If you see those little knifes coming at you,
    duck and spin your whip. Repeat this process until he is dead.
    B. Alright, this is a little tougher (at least it was for me, cus I was
    only level 28). Anyway, turn on the thunderbird summon (Uranus +
    Thunderbird) and start the battle. Jump in the air, and do the summon
    while in air, so when the summon is over, you'll have time to jump so
    you don't land on Hugh. If your life gets low during battle, there are
    ledges in the top left and right of the room that he shouldn't be able
    to hit you at, where you can use the unicorn summon (Uranus + White
    Unicorn) to regain your life. There is one attack that CAN hit you, but
    if your doing the summon, it won't. After you regain your life, just
    jump down there and do the summon some more times. Eventually he will
    die, and you can get the last key!
    C. Before you go to this battle, be AT LEAST level 33 - 35 (depending on
    how good you are). And, have platinum armor(or better), and two double
    grips equipped.(you can get those items from dark armors. When you enter
    the battle, there is no strategy that you can really use. But what I did
    alot, is when he chases you, jump over him, and slash him in the back.
    Also, use crucifixes alot, seeing as they hit him twice(usually), and
    deal more damage than your whip. Just keep hacking away at him until he
    is dead.
    9. Dracula (level 50+)
    A. Dracula's first form- For this battle, you want to equip the Uranus +
    Cockatrice DSS so you can do the Cockatrice summon. Just keep doing the
    summon until he is dead.(it should only take 2 times)
    Dracuala's second form- For Dracula's second form, you want to turn on
    your poisen shield (Jupiter + Cockatrice), so he can't hit you with the
    poisen bubbles, and if he does, just use an antidote. First, jump up on
    the platform right next to him, and wait for him to teleport up to you.
    Now, you want to hit him in the eye on his chest when it opens, watch
    out for his laser and his comet attack also, especially his comet
    attack. When his eye opens, throw crucifixes and whip it as much as you
    can before it closes, and then wait for him to dissapear and come back
    and do it again, when he flashes red, use your roc wing as quick as you
    can to get to the top of the "arena" and keep jumping to stay up there,
    cus He will do this repeated charge  attack. You can hear a sharp sound
    every time he does it, when the sharp sounds quit happening (they happen
    about every 5 seconds I think, and I think he does it about 4 times)
    drop down to the platform and turn on the Uranus + Thunderbird
    combination. When you see the eyeball surrounded by bats come on screen,
    do the summon and then go back to the top of the arena and stay up there
    until those sharp sounds finish (because after you hit the eyeball,
    he'll change back to normal and do the charge attack again) and jump
    down and do the same thing. Keep doing this until you beat him.
    Congrats! You just beat the game!
    B. Dracula's First form- For this form, I did the same thing that I did
    in Vampire killer mode, except I used the Thunderbird summon (Uranus +
    Thunderbird)(you may be able to use cockatrice summon, but I'm not sure
    yet, because I haven't tried it). If you get low on life during this
    battle, just use the Unicorn summon in place of the Thunderbird summon
    to regain your life. After you regain your life, go back to the
    Thunderbird summon.
       Dracula's Second form- For this form, you want to jump up on the
    platform right away, with the COCKATRICE (Uranus + Cockatrice) summon
    turned on. When he does any of his attacks (except poisen bubble), do
    the summon. When he does poisen bubble (you can tell when he's gunna do
    it, cus the mouths on his feet shine), brandish you whip, so that all
    the bubbles are destroyed, then get a few hits off with your whip. After
    he starts blinking red, turn on your invincibility DSS (Pluto + White
    Unicorn), so that his charge attack won't hit you. When he does around
    four charges, and turns into the eyeball surrounded by bats, turn on the
    Thunderbird summon (Uranus + Thunderbird), and when the eye comes on the
    screen, do the summon once, and then turn on invincibility again until
    he does the charge attacks all over again and turns back into the eye
    surrounded by bats. Then repeat the process over and over untill he is
    C. Dracula's First Form- This form wasn't that hard if you ask me. What
    you want to do, is wait until he is just shooting the bats, and jump
    behind him, and hit him with you whip a couple of times. Another thing
    that I found quite effective, is waiting until you see the beam of
    light, and then throw a crucifix, so that it does the turn around, right
    over where he is. This way, it will hit him several times...not only
    twice. It should only take a couple of hits to kill him, not many.
    10. Boss Locations
    I made some maps for those of you who can't find the bosses. The maps
    don't tell you where doors are, but they'll give you a good idea of in
    which direction the boss is in. I hope that these maps help you out
