                                   Introduction                         
    =================================================================[CotM-INT]===
    
    
    Hello everyone, Bkstunt here with a walkthrough for Castlevania: Circle of
    the Moon. This is the FIRST guide I've written for a game that WASN'T brand
    spanking new OR never had a guide. Why?! Well, I absolutely LOVE this game,
    that's why! Do I really need any other reason?!
    
    Anyways, enjoy the guide! I've worked hard to make sure the formating is easy
    to read and follow and you really get EVERYTHING you can out of the game.
    
    
    ==========
    FOLLOW ME!
    ==========
    
    Want to talk about some games!? Maybe throw out some ideas for what YOU want
    to see me write about next? I made a facebook account for just that reason!
    
    You can 'Like' me at:
    
       ====================
       Facebook.com/Bkstunt
       ====================
    
    I also have a website you can visit to see what other guides I've written,
    as well as see upcoming projects. I've also written a TON of reviews that will
    go up there (You want to play GOOD games, right?!).
    
       ===========
       Bkstunt.com
       ===========
    
    
    So between those two sites, come on over and say 'Hi!' sometime.
    
    
    =========
    Donations
    =========
    
    First of all, let me say that my primary motivation for writing guides is,
    and always will be, for the gamer. However, as I've learned by writing just
    a few guides on new games, it can hit your pocket book! I wish they'd give me
    these games so I could crank out great guides, but they don't! Ah, maybe one
    day!
    
    Until then, if you've found this guide helpful please consider donating to
    help me offset my costs. You can donate to my paypal account below:
    
       =======
       PAYPAL:
       =======
    
    Paypal ID:
    
    Gregorio31 @ Gmail . Com
    
    
    Hey, it's WAY better than paying $20 for a guide, right? Even the smallest
    amount will be appreciated.
    
    
    =======
    AMAZON:
    =======
    
    ALTERNATELY, if you shop at Amazon.com (who doesn't?!) you can ALSO help me
    out by shopping through me! It doesn't cost you a SINGLE CENT either, which
    is kick-ass. All you do is visit my webpage's donation page below:
    
       ==========================
       Bkstunt.com/donations.html
       ==========================
    
    Once you are there, you can click on the AMAZON link at the top and shop as
    normal. 4% of what you buy will then be sent to me. 
    
    Please be sure to send me an email so I can thank you personally as well! Or
    just send me an email to say "Thanks!" Every one of those I read makes my day!

    STATUS ABNORMALITIES:
    
    
    POISON: Player HP will decrease for a fixed period of time. Use the recovery
            item "Antidote" to quickly nullify the effects of poison.
    
    
    CURSE: The player becomes completely incapable of attacking for a fixed period
           of time. Use the recovery item "Cure Curse" to quickly lift the curse.
    
    
    STONE: The player becomes completely immobilized. Recover by either receiving
           damage from an enemy attack or by rapidly pressing left and right on
           the control pad.
    
    
    FREEZE: The player becomes completely immobilized. Recover by either receiving
            damage from an enemy attack or return to normal after a fixed period
            of time.
    
    (Bk's Note: I would jam on the left and right control pad when you find
                yourself frozen as well, even if the manual doesn't mention it!)

                                    Game Basics & Tips                      
    =================================================================[CotM-GBT]===
    
    
    
     o Remember, this is an RPG! Be sure to do some grinding every now and again!
    
     o Save often! There is nothing worse than losing progress, so save whenever
       you can!
    
     o Items like 'Antidote' and 'Cure Curse' are always useful. Consider spending
       some time accumulating a supply.
    
     o Almost every enemy has a normal item drop and a rare item drop. More than
       likely, if an enemy is pretty rare it has something cool for you... if you
       can massacre it enough and be patient.
    
     o Only use the DSS system when you need it, and if you don't know what a card
       combo is, check the guide (the game by itself isn't that user friendly when
       it comes to some of the combos).
    
     o LUCK is your best friend when it comes to grinding for drops, but when you
       aren't doing that equip something with better STR or DEF.
    
     o Turn off your DSS when you aren't using it!
    
     o Whenever you get a new ability check out the map to see where you may be

    ==============================================================================
    
    
                  The year is 1830.
                  In an ancient castle on the outskirts of the Austrian
                  empire, a demon lord that would unite the powers of
                  darkness was being resurrected at the hand of a fiend
                  yearning for chaos.
    
                  At this demonic castle, Camilla, one of Dracula's
                  minions, began the incantation of a ritual to bring her
                  lord Dracula back to life.
    
                  The vampire hunter Morris and his two apprentices,
                  Nathan and Hugh, sensed an abnormality in the
                  balance of nature and rushed to prevent Dracula's
                  unholy reemergence.
    
                  "That unholy monster must never return!"
    
                  However, they arrived too late to prevent Dracula's
                  return from his confinement. Dracula used his magical
                  powers to imprison Morris, and cast Nathan and Hugh
                  into a graveyard underneath the demonic castle.
    
                  Together the two began to search through the castle in
                  order to vanquish Dracula and to rescue their master.
    
                  (Story taken from the game's manual).
    
    
    With that forebording intro gone, you'll see how Castlevania: Circle of the
    Moon starts! Camilla (of Castlevania II fame) is the head of a cult who has
    actually resurrected the evil lord Dracula. Upon being resurrected, Dracula
    will be confronted by vampire killers: Morris Baldwin and his two apprentices
    Hugh Baldwin (his son) and Nathan Graves (our hero).
    
    
    Dracula will recognize the man as one of the hunters who banished him the last
    time he was awaken (that sounds like a good story, by the way). He will then
    say that he will find it amusing to use this enemies life to regain his power,
    while destroying the flooring beneath Hugh and Nathan's feet, dropping them
    into the catacombs below.
    
    And the game is on! However, Hugh will insist that as Morris' son, he should
    be the one to save him, and tells Nathan to go home as he'd just get in the
    way. Nathan will then say that he isn't about to abandon his master (even
    though Hugh is already gone by the time Nathan says it, meaning he is
    essentially talking to himself).
    
    
    You will now have control over Nathan, so get used to the controls and
    descend down the screen, battling some annoying bomb-throwing skeletons on
    the way, and gathering up hearts if you wish as we make our way to the first
    section of our guide.

     o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    
    Ah, listen to that music! What a great way to begin a game!
    
    Chances are pretty good that you will get your first DSS card soon: The
    'Salamander' card. It drops from the Skeleton's in the catacomb EASILY.
    However, with only one card we can't do much of anything. The game will give
    a QUICK explanation of the DSS system here as well.
    
    
    You'll notice a path upwards as you move forward, but it's too high for us to
    jump to for now. We'll be back, don't worry! There are some bats and a 'bone
    head' enemy ahead before the path drops down to another bone head. You will
    want to spend a few seconds killing these bone heads, as they drop the
    'Mercury' card. The room to the right has a box that we can't move yet, but
    you can use this room to make the bone head enemies re-appear.
    
    With the Mercury card in tow, you will now have your first DSS combo!
    
    
       Mercury + Salamander = Fire Whip
    
    
    You can check out this combo by lining up the two cards in the DSS screen and
    'activating' the power by hitting the 'L' button. It will turn your whip into
    a fire whip! It also adds a smidgen of attack! It doesn't necessarily make
    your weapon better though! For example, it HALVES damage to skeleton-type
    weapons. Just be conscience of what your weapon does and you'll be ok.
    
    
    Since the room on the right is blocked, head onwards. You'll encounter a new
    enemy (or two) here: The Poison Worm. Just TOUCHING these things will POISON
    you, but you can also get them to drop antidotes. It isn't a horrible idea to
    sit under a nest and twirl your whip (Hold 'B', remember!) to gain some
    experience (1 EXP per small worm) and some antidotes.
    
    If you keep going you can either go upwards or downwards. Going up will lead
    to your first SAVE ROOM. These rooms will heal all your wounds as well as let
    you save your game! Quite a boon! Head back out and take the southern path.
    The candle down here has your first sub-weapon: the dagger! Press 'Up + B' to
    chuck a dagger straight forwards, which consumes one heart. The path to the
    left is a dead end for now, so head right and kill the worms and skeletons.
    
    
    The room on the right has quite a shock for you: an EARTH DEMON. This beast
    will fly around and mentally make spikes of earth shoot up along the ground at
    you. You can easily jump over them though. The earth demon can take a lot of
    hits but will give you a good chunk of experience when he dies. He can also
    drop the 'SERPENT' card, so it isn't a bad idea to kill a few until you get
    one.
    
    
       Mercury + Serpent = Ice Whip
    
       (Note: You can use FROZEN enemies as platforms!)
    
    
    
    Be sure to go heal at the SAVE ROOM if you need to. More importantly,
    past the earth demon to the far right (don't go upwards yet) is your first
    MAGIC ITEM: Dash Boots! These WONDERFUL boots will allow you to dash by
    DOUBLE TAPPING in any direction. This item makes the game 10x more enjoyable.
    
    I like to go back and save now, BUT, you can also use that fancy new ICE WHIP
    of yours to get a MP INCREASE! Remember the path that goes to the LEFT under
    the save room? You can freeze the skeleton down here and use him to get up to
    the higher ledge. Up here, you have to get to the LEFT of the next skeleton
    and freeze him too to get even higher (you'll have to eat some damage). It's
    all worth it though as you can get a .: MP INCREASE :. by going to the left.
    This handy little item will increase your MP by 10 (Just like a 'Level Up'
    will do). There are also increases for HEALTH and HEARTS. The candle here has
    an AXE SUBWEAPON in it as well.
    
    
    After getting that and saving, go back to the earth demon room. Head upwards
    now. The VERY top has a dead-end on the left and a door with an unbreakable
    block on the right, so take the ground level exit to the right. Here you will
    be in a hall with poison worms, skeletons, and zombies! The zombies don't stop
    coming, but aren't worth much experience. Past that hallway the room really
    opens up. Drop down and go into the next room on the right.
    
    In here you will fight an earth demon, so keep your guard up. Past him is an
    incline, but before going up it, SLIDE (Down + 'A') under it. There is a
    .: HEARTS INCREASE :. down here. You can go up the incline now if you want,
    but you'll find it's a sheer upwards path that we just can't do... for now.
    
    
    Go back to the open room now. There will be a skeleton spear enemy right
    above you with a bone head. Kill them and jump to the first outcropping on
    the left. There's a skeleton spear here too, so kill him. Now, to the left
    just LOOKS like a dead end, but try whipping the wall. It will BREAK,
    revealing a hidden room! There are SEVERAL rooms like this hidden throughout
    the game, and we'll get them all. Go inside and you'll find two skeleton
    bombers along with a .: MP INCREASE :.!
    
    
    After getting that goodie, let's go get another one! Exit the secret room and
    head straight to the right. There will be another room over here. Kill the
    enemies here and SLIDE under the wall to the right. Go up the screen here and
    you'll find a .: HP INCREASE :. waiting for you. This will also REFILL your
    health entirely. Very nice.
    
    Go back to the open room. The room on the right above you has a save point
    that you can use. There's also a room on the left, but it's a dead-end. Keep
    heading up and you'll see you can either go UP or LEFT. Go left to find a
    room with a .: MP INCREASE :. in it! This room also spawns SPIRIT enemies,
    but they are easily dispatched with a spinning whip.
    
    Go back and go UP this time. You'll be in another big room. Go to the left and
    you'll find a place to SLIDE underneath to another big room. This room is
    full of bone heads and skeleton spears, and has two exits at the bottom: one
    to the left and one to the right. Go to the LEFT EXIT first to find a room
    with a .: HP INCREASE :. in it. Take the RIGHT EXIT to go back to the first
    big room (that dead end you saw earlier). Go back up to get back to the second
    big room.
    
    
    Take the right path this time. Stay on the ground level and you'll have to
    pass a section where spirits and a new enemy (Mudmen) spawn continuously. Make
    your way past that and you'll reach a .: MP INCREASE :. to the right. The path
    upwards is a little too steep, so head back and upwards now. Follow this path
    to a new screen.
    
    
    Here follow the path past the mudmen. The room on the upper left is a SAVE
    ROOM. Be sure to use it, we have a boss fight coming up! Take the lower left
    exit now (do your best to preserve your health).
    
    In this room, drop down and go into the first room you see on the right. You
    will find a .: HEARTS INCREASE :. in here! Keep going down and the room will
    wrap around and have you go up. The BOTTOM left exit here has a room with
    coffin's and mummies. You can't go far here though, as it will be too high at
    the end. There's a HOLY WATER SUBWEAPON in the farthest candle here, which is
    a GOOD pick for the upcoming boss.
    
    Go back to the previous room and upwards. In the next left-hand room are an
    annoying enemy called 'hopper'. They'll die in a single hit (at level 6)
    though, so kill them to get to the back of the room and take the .: MP
    INCREASE :. back there. The next door upwards will have a blue aura around
    it, denoting that it is a BOSS ROOM. Once you're ready head on in!

     | - General Information: Cerberus will be with you in a FAIRLY small       |
     |   room. There are ledges in the room as well, so you can easily get      |
     |   by him when you need to. Watch out for his attacks listed below.       |
     |   For this fight I recommend using the FIRE WHIP and the HOLY WATER      |
     |   sub-weapon. If you get near him while he's doing the 'Electric Ball'   |
     |   attack and lay down some holy water and fire whip he will fall easy.   |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Beam Attack: Cerberus will charge across the screen and jump onto a    |
     |   lower ledge. He'll then shoot a screen-spanning beam across the room.  |
     |   you pretty much need to be above or below him (preferably attacking    |
     |   him) when he does this.                                                |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Electric Ball: Cerberus will howl and summon two lightning orbs.       |
     |   Cerberus will stay in place shaking while the orbs shoot lightning     |
     |   downwards.                                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
    After the battle you will undoubtedly level up (unless you've been doing some
    SERIOUS grinding). Go into the now-unlocked left room and you'll get another
    very cool MAGIC ITEM: The DOUBLE! This handy item lets you do another jump in
    MID AIR! How cool is that!? Be sure to save!
    
    
    Now that we have the double, we can go back and get a few things that we
    couldn't get before. The game WANTS us to go to the room with the mummies,
    but we have a bit of collecting to do. Open your map. See the area to the
    right that is unexplored? We can reach it now. Go right past the area with
    the respawning spirits and mudmen and jump above where we couldn't go before.
    The end of this path will have a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Ok, now let's head
    back to the mummy room underneath the boss room. Fight your way past the
    coffins and head upwards at the end where you couldn't. There is a door to
    the left, but BEFORE you go through it, whip the RIGHT wall. A portion will
    break and you can enter a hidden room. Here defeat the mummy enemy for the
    .: HP INCREASE :..
    
    Ok, now let's go through the left door, to the next area.

    This music in this area is quite good as well. We'll be in a stairway area
    now. Don't bother going upwards, as the platforms stop after awhile so head
    downwards instead. This down path leads back into the last section: Catacombs.
    It goes to the very first section of the area, remember that first jump up
    that was impossible to make? Well it's very possible now.
    
    
    While we're down here we may as well grab an increase. I want you to go into
    the left room under the first catacombs save point. Remember the one we got
    the first MP increase in? That room has several new enemies in it now,
    including fleamen (who are annoying like the hopper), a slime, and to the
    upper right is a weird enemy called the brain float. What you want to do is
    to activate your ICE WHIP, and make platforms out of these creatures leading
    UP. With the double, you could even make every-other one a platform and get
    away with it.
    
    It's easier said then done, but is very possible with a little practice.
    It took me three tries, but it is all worth it, as the end of the upwards
    path houses a .: HP INCREASE :.. Also, I'd like to note right now that the
    FLEAMEN in this room have a LOT of experience... 29XP per enemy! I spent a
    little time killing the first two fleamen in this room (holy water makes this
    a cinch) and got to level 9.
    
    
    Ok, now let's go back to the Abyss Stairway. As you know, the right path is a
    dead-end, so let's take the left path upwards. On the way, whip the RIGHT wall
    (just upwards of the first RIGHT platform, use the middle platform to jump
    over to the right wall) and you should find a breakable piece of the wall.
    Inside is a slime and a new enemy: the axe armor. This guy simply walks back
    and forth and chucks axes at you. He's worth a good chunk of EXP too. Once he
    is dead grab the .: MP INCREASE :..
    
    
    Ok, we got a little grinding to do. This room with the slime and the axe armor
    is GREAT because we can get TWO NEW CARDS from these enemies (one from each).
    It MAY take a while to get these cards, but the experience you'll rack up will
    help a ton in the upcoming area. Here's the cards that will drop if you are
    patient and keep killing:
    
    
       The slime will drop the 'Venus' card!
    
       The axe armor will drop the 'Mardragora' card!
    
    
    Congrats to you if you stuck it out and got these cards! Here's the effects
    that you can do with each one!
    
    
       Mercury + Mandragora = Thorn Whip
    
       Venus + Salamander = Damage Increased by 25%
    
       Venus + Serpent = Defence Increased by 25%
    
       Venus + Mandragora = Luck Increased by 25%
    
    
    As you can see you have a TON of choices for DSS Combo's now. Personally I'm
    going with the luck, but that's just for finding new items I can tell you guys
    about in this guide! Do the one that's right for you!
    
    
    Keep heading up. To the right is an opening with an axe armor in it. Kill
    him and go to the right. This is the top of the staircase we couldn't climb
    earlier, but a little ways down and to the left is a room with a .: HP
    INCREASE :. in it. You'll now have to drop down and re-climb the left hand
    side but that is easy enough. Once you get back to the left side, head up
    through the gap in the ceiling.
    
    
    You'll soon come across a door on the right, but this is a dead-end for now.
    We'll open that path later. Keep heading up (the broken-looking platforms will
    crumble when you step on them). The next room on the right is a save room, and
    beyond that is a new area (note the open ceiling that leads straight up).
    
    This area goes straight up for a ways, and has never-ending gremlins and
    skeletons. Keep going up until the top. You'll find a dead end on the left
    and a door on the right, however this door like the last one has a statue
    thing blocking the way. Also note the straight-up path before the door!
    
    From the door take the upper left path. At the end before jumping up to
    continue, whip the left wall to find a hidden room. There will be a skeleton
    soldier in here with a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Keep heading up afterwards to
    reach a new area.

     o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    
    This area is more like the 'Audience Room' and surrounding areas. There is so
    much we can do right now! Notice that the music is the same as the Abyss
    Stairway? I made this new section anyway so the guide has SOME sort of format.
    
    
    In this new area there is a door to the right. It has two sets of slimes and
    axe armors in it, and is then blocked by a brick. If you haven't got the
    'Venus' or 'Mandragora' cards this is another good area to get them. Head up
    past the door to reach another door on the left.
    
    
    You'll be in a white marble area now. Go down and you'll see you have a choice
    to go further down or left. Explore the down area to find a blue iron wall in
    the way to the left and the area you started the game in to the right. The
    door here is locked, by the way. Go to the left now and you'll see a door to
    the left and a path up. For explorations sake, let's go explore the door on
    the left! Note that the path downwards from the door is blocked by a crate!
    
    
    
       Triumph Hallway
       ===============
    
    You'll be in a new area, but once again the music will stay the same. There
    are new enemies in here though, including the clinking man who will LUNGE at
    you (be careful) and the floating will o' wisp. Head down the area and jump on
    the upper ledge. Whip the upper left wall to find a hidden room with some
    fleamen and a .: HP INCREASE :.. Head down now and you'll see a door to the
    left. This leads to another portion of the hallway full of zombies and will o'
    wisps. At the end of the hallway is another door.
    
    You will be outside now! There is another armor enemy out here you can kill.
    This one is a FLAME ARMOR. He has quite a reach with his flame sword and it
    packs a punch, but you can kill him easily with a little caution. He also
    gives 280 EXP! The last candle in this area has the CROSS subweapon, which
    is in my opinion the BEST subweapon in the game since it acts like a boomerang
    and returns when thrown. That's worth this trip alone (try to keep it!) Note
    that this area has a open gap above you.
    
    
       Audience Room
       =============
    
    Head back to the marble area now, to the area before we met the clinking men.
    From the door head upwards. There is another door above you on the left but
    it is blocked by a rock. Keep heading up. At the top, kill the skeleton to the
    upper left and whip the wall here to find a hidden room. This room has a
    .: HEARTS INCREASE :. in it. After that head through the door to the right.
    
    
    In here you will fight skeleton soldiers and axe armors. A little ways in you
    will see a path upwards. You can go explore it but you won't be able to get
    very far. Keep heading right and you will have a choice to go up or down. Go
    up for another choice: up or to the right. Well, to the right is a SAVE ROOM,
    so go heal up and then explore upwards. Before going into that room on the
    right, whip the left-hand wall to find a HIDDEN room with an axe armor in it
    and a .: MP INCREASE :..
    
    Go into the room on the right now. Ignore the upper path for now and head
    right. You'll come to a gap in the floor and a wall. You can cross this
    easily though, just run off the ledge and jump to reach the other side. Here
    you will find an axe armor and a .: HP INCREASE :.. Sweet. It gets better
    though, exit the room and drop down the gap. You'll find a .: HEARTS INCREASE
    :. on the right.
    
    Head to the left now and down the stairs. To the right is a path blocked by a
    box, while to the left is the way back to the save room from before. On the
    way check out the new enemy: the electric skeleton! This guy shoots lightning
    along the ground! Head back up past the save room now to the room where you
    jumped over the gap. Now, head up. You'll see a pathway to the RIGHT which
    leads to a dead-end, and a pathway further up. Take that one to get to a new
    area.
    
    
       Outer Wall
       ==========
    
    Out here you need to be careful! Bomber skeletons will OFTEN be on columns
    above you chucking bombs! The IDEA behind this first area is to make you jump
    from column to column to get to the right upper room. However, go ahead and
    clear out the bottom area of enemies. Now, head to the far right on the lower
    level and start spinning your whip so it hits the ground. In no time you will
    break the FLOOR and fall down into a hidden room. There's an electric skeleton
    and axe armor in here, but past them is a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Go pack to
    the previous room now and make your way up the columns left to right to reach
    the next room (also note how open the space is above you).
    
    This next room opens up after a bit, but notice the BRAIN FLOATS leading
    upwards!? That's right folks, you sure can whip an ICE PATH upwards. I won't
    lie: it is NOT easy with the enemies shooting at you. It is entirely possible
    though (it took me 5 tries to do it), but once you DO get up there you can
    follow the path to a .: HP INCREASE :.. Well worth the effort, no? Once you
    are ready, proceed to the exit on the right of this area.
    
    Now you are in for a TREAT! Once you get down to the lower platform, take a
    running leap to the LEFT off the small set of stairs! You'll come to a room
    with a giant door. This is a WARP ROOM. Try taking it and then checking your
    map. LOOK! You are near the room you started in now! Hit the button here to
    destroy the barrier and PRESTO: You've got easy access to a previous area.
    That's how these warp rooms help us out by moving quickly through the castle.
    
    Go back to where you found the first warp room now. Below it is a block that
    is blocking your progress, so head right along the electric skeleton path. At
    the end, jump UP to the upper path and enter the room there for a .: MP
    INCREASE :.. Go back and check the room right below that for a SAVE ROOM. Ok,
    now equip your LUCK card combo and go kill the ELECTRIC SKELETONS to the left
    over and over. With any luck, you will soon get them to drop the prize below:
    
    
       The electric skeleton will drop the 'Golem' card!
    
    
    This is the ideal place to get this card due to all the skeletons and the save
    point nearby. Here's the new tricks you can pull off now!
    
    
       Mercury + Golem = Earth Whip (This increases your whip's range).
    
       Venus + Golem = Defense increases as the % of the uncovered increases.
    
    
    Be sure to save now! After that head downwards. This area will have axe armors
    in it along with a new enemy called a devil tower, which shoots at you but is
    pretty easy to kill given the fact that it stays still. Head to the left down
    here to find a .: MP INCREASE :. at the end. Head to the right now and enter
    the next room. Here, drop down to the second staircase, then the third. At the
    TOP of this staircase, go whip the LEFT wall. It will break, revealing a
    hidden room along with another .: MP INCREASE :.. Go back and continue
    downwards. At the bottom here you can go either left or right. Let's explore
    the RIGHT area first.
    
    
    To the right are clinking men and fleamen. To the FAR right is an area that
    you just need to go STRAIGHT up to continue. However, you can battle your way
    past the fleamen in the center to find a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Take note that
    this area DOES go higher... we just can't get up there yet. Once you're done
    here go take the bottom left path.
    
    This room will have more axe armors and devil towers. Be sure to whip the
    FAR LEFT wall here to find another hidden room with a .: HP INCREASE :. in it.
    Keep heading upwards and to the left. In the next area you can head downwards
    to find a SAVE ROOM on the right. The left path leads to a dead-end with a
    block (we've visited the other side). Save up and go upwards now. We're about
    to tackle our SECOND boss, whose door you will find as you travel upwards.
    Ready? Here we go!
    
    
    Head into the boss room to have a nice friendly chat with a Necromancer, who
    will be amused that you are still alive. Before the battle, the Necromancer
    will tell you that they are awaiting the full moon to use your master's soul
    to power up Dracula. Yikes!

     |                                                                          |

     | - General Information: The Necromancer is a fun fight! He will float     |
     |   around the room (which has a single platform in it) so you'll have to  |
     |   watch out for him. For this fight I recommend the CROSS subweapon we   |
     |   picked up earlier. I would also advise to put on either the VENUS +    |
     |   SALAMANDER combo or the MERCURY + MANDRAGOR combo (Venus is better).   |
     |                                                                          |
     |   Watch out for the Necromancer's attacks listed below. Also note that   |
     |   he will change forms halfway through the fight and summon skeletons    |
     |   instead of zombies. FUN. The BEST time to hurt the Necromancer is      |
     |   when he is SUMMONING, so be sure to chuck some crosses and go to town. |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Circle Attack: The Necromancer will make six circular orbs rotate      |
     |   around him before firing them off at you three at a time. Easy to      |
     |   dodge with your double jump.                                           |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Zombie Summon: The Necromancer will summon four zombies to patrol the  |
     |   area below. More of a nuisance than a danger.                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Form Change: Upon losing half of his health, the Necromancer will turn |
     |   into a skeletal demon, losing his previous attacks but gaining the two |
     |   lower attacks. He also has a slight damage boost here.                 |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Energy Ball: The Necromancer will envelop himself in green energy and  |
     |   bounce around the room, trying to ram into you. He bounces at angles   |
     |   though, giving you a chance to avoid him.                              |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Skeleton Summon: The Necromancer will summon four skeletons to patrol  |
     |   the area below. Again, more of a nuisance and more annoying than the   |
     |   zombies from before given their bone throwing.                         |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
    After the fight, go into the room on the LEFT to receive another MAGIC ITEM:
    the TACKLE! This item enables Nathan to charge headfirst forwards (By pressing
    the 'R' button and forwards at the same time). This will enable you to break
    ALL of the blocks we've encountered. Let's go try it out. Leave this area now
    and SAVE!
    
    OK, with this new power we can reach an entirely new area. HOWEVER, we can
    also go grab a couple of new items! Look at your map. See the area down below
    (The Catacombs) where there are TWO rooms that we haven't explored (the left
    room and the right room). Well, you can get into the right room now, so go
    down there. It's a fairly short trip if you head to the left. You'll even
    run into a stone block on the way, so you can try out your TACKLE move (which
    breaks the block to pieces).
    
    Once you get there, you'll find some new enemies to fight: Stone Armor and
    Zombie Thieves. The stone armor chucks rocks at you, which break up when they
    hit the ground! The zombie thieves are a lot like the clinking men. At the
    end of this section, you can claim the .: MP INCREASE :..
    
    HOWEVER, before moving on, you can also get a CARD from the stone armors in
    here. This is a worthy endeavor, friend, as you also gain 222 XP per kill, so
    turn on your LUCK combo and go kill the first stone armor over and over until
    it drops the 'Cockatrice Card'. You can get this from the stone armor later on
    in the game if you wish, but I like to get things as soon as I can.
    
    
       The stone armor will drop the 'Cockatrice' card!
    
    
    Here's the new tricks you can pull off now!
    
    
       Mercury + Cockatrice = Stone Whip.
    
       (Note: You can use FROZEN enemies as platforms!)
    
    
       Venus + Cockatrice = Gain experience points from walking.
    
       (Note: You gain 1 EXP per activation! This skill will activate every couple
              of steps. You DO NOT gain experience from running!)   
    
    
    
    OK, with that card and the MP boost in hand let's open the map again. See
    WARP ROOM #1? It's the yellow room on the right. See the un-explored room
    directly to the LEFT? We want to go there now. Inside you'll find another
    stone block you can break. Beyond that is ANOTHER new enemy: the Heat Shade.
    She is a ghost that can summon a fireball that will try and hit you. At LEAST
    it isn't a homing fireball. Past her is a .: HP INCREASE :. for you!
    
    Before moving onwards, we COULD spend some time killing this head shade over
    and over until it drops another card for us. Turn on your LUCK combo and go
    to town!
    
    
       The heat shade will drop the 'Jupiter' card!
    
    
    The Jupiter card is all about defense! Pair it with an attribute card to
    add some form of defensive help. Here's the new tricks you can pull off now!
    
    
       Jupiter + Salamander = 2 fireballs circle you in defense.
    
       (Note: These flames do the SAME damage as a whip attack!)
    
    
       Jupiter + Serpent = 4 ice balls circle you in defense.
    
       (Note: These ice balls can FREEZE enemies!)
    
    
       Jupiter + Mandragora = Standing still will replenish health.
    
       (Note: You MUST stand still for this to work. It will heal you for about
              1% of your max HP per second. It's also VERY spendy at 16MP/sec.)   
    
    
       Jupiter + Golem = When damages, invincibility duration is x 4.
    
       (Note: This card will make you invincible four times longer than normal.
              Great if you just want to plough through an area and can take the
              damage.)
    
    
       Jupiter + Cockatrice = Transform into stone and become invulnerable.
    
       (Note: Invulnerable DOES NOT MEAN Invincible, so be careful still. Your
              walking speed is SLOW, and you can no longer dash.)
    
    
    OK, this section has gone on long enough. Let's go to a new area. Look at
    your map. See the SECOND room above the SECOND warp point (the one on the
    LEFT). Head there now to find another stone block. Head past it to run into
    a few new enemies: the Ectoplasm and the Skeleton Knight, along with some
    zombie thieves. Keep heading to the left and soon you'll see a path upwards
    and to the left. Go explore the left if you want, noting the lack of a ceiling
    and the box down below. Go back and head up now, past the zombie thieves to a
    brand new area (music and everything!).

    Well... I bet we won't see any medusa head up here! Hehe.. Ok, be careful
    because to your left are some fox archers (a new enemy) who will of course
    shoot arrows at you! This area is FULL of gears and platforms that will keep
    moving up & down, left & right, making us use them to continue. Use these
    first gears here and get to the first room above you on the right to find a
    SAVE ROOM.
    
    
    Head back out and drop down below. Follow the path to the left now and head
    upwards when you can. This upwards path will lead you to a .: HEARTS INCREASE
    :. being guarded by fox archers. You'll also soon discover that I was WRONG
    about the medusa heads earlier! Whoops! Oh well, just time your jumps and you
    will be ok! On your way down, you can break the stone block on the right for
    a shortcut.
    
    
    Continue to the right from here and get to the ledge on the right. The candle
    here has a NEW sub-weapon: the STOPWATCH. I personally am keeping the cross
    (you know how I feel about it), but this handy thing will STOP time (and
    enemies) for a short amount of time. Head down to the right room now. In here
    you will fight some skeleton knights and archers. Drop down on the right to
    find a .: HP INCREASE :.. Make your way back up using the gears while
    dodging/killing the medusa heads and go back out to the main area.
    
    
    Ok, time to go UP. You can use the left-hand side for it's ledges to help.
    There are also more fox archers on the right, so be careful. Get to the ledge
    above the last one to find a new room. Go in to see that it has a path that
    goes straight up... we will come back here for an item later. Go back to the
    main area and up. Head to the LEFT path, killing the fox archer. The wall up
    here on the LEFT can be BROKEN, revealing a hidden room. Inside is another
    heat shade and a .: MP INCREASE :.. Head back now and take the upwards path
    to get to a new screen.
    
    Here you have no choice but to go left past the heat shades. The path to the
    left leads to a dead end (we need an item to continue), so you can ignore it
    for now. Head upwards here. The room on the left is a SAVE ROOM. Continue
    going upwards, being careful of the electric ceilings. To the right you can
    use the platforms to reach a ledge you can SLIDE under into the room on the
    right. Be ready to fight when you do, as you'll meet a new type of demon:
    the Thunder Demon. This guy will sit there and make balls of thunder appear
    which strike down. You can easily stand between them and be safe though, so
    just watch where you stand and keep whipping him.
    
    
    After that, head to the right. Kill the skeleton and whip the wall to its
    right to find a HIDDEN ROOM. Here you can find a .: HP INCREASE :.! Sweet!
    
    
    Ok, NOW we have a job to do: Collect another DSS Card. Our target? The
    Thunder Demon. Thanks to the HIDDEN ROOM here we have an easy way to make
    it spawn for us, so equip your LUCK items and card combo and go to town. It
    won't be easy, and you'll probably get half-a-dozen magic gauntlets like me,
    but it will drop, I promise.
    
    
       The thunder demon will drop the 'Manticore' card!
    
    
    The Manticore card is an attribute card with the power of POISON. Here are
    the new things you can do with the Manticore card:
    
    
       Mercury + Manticore = Poison Whip.
    
       (Note: You will whip diagonally, releasing a mist of poison.)
    
    
       Venus + Manticore = Gain double the hearts from candles.
    
       (Note: This one is obviously good for refilling hearts!) 
    
    
       Jupiter + Manticore = Poison Cloud
    
    
    Ok, time to continue. Your path in was a one-way path, so head down now.
    You'll meet another thunder demon down here (fight on the floor, not the
    gears). After slaying him head UP PAST the ledge on the left to find a room
    on the left. In here is a rock armor, but more importantly a .: HP INCREASE
    :.. We're really racking these things up. Go back down now and slide to the
    left. You'll be at the start of the big room from before, so work your way
    back up to where we left off.
    
    Now we just have to head UP, but the heat shades won't make it easy. Once you
    get up to where the heat shade was, head to the LEFT. Easier said than done
    with the electric ceiling, but just time your jumps right and duck under the
    upcoming ceilings (and whip/jump over the medusa heads) to get to the ledge on
    the far left, where as you guessed you can whip to reveal a HIDDEN ROOM.
    
    Follow the path and you'll run into a new armor: the Earth Armor. This guy is
    sort of like the Earth Demon: he'll throw his sword down and make a wall or
    rocks come at you. Just jump over it and kill him. Keep going to find a
    .: HEARTS INCREASE :. down here. Go back now and head to the upper right to a
    new room.
    
    In here you can't head up, so go right. Watch out for the slime and fox archer
    and break the rock to the right. There is another archer here! Jump up and
    enter the right room for a .: MP INCREASE :.. Go back and keep heading
    upwards. Past the block is a door to the right, which is a dead end for us
    right now. However, break the block to the LEFT and you'll find a room to the
    left past a heat shade. This leads to a corridor full of enemies and at the
    end you'll find a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Head back now and keep going upwards
    to the path on the upper left. Down this corridor be careful of the slimes on
    the ceiling. Follow it all the way to the left for a SAVE room on the lower
    left. Be sure to save.
    
    Now, go back and head up. Follow the path up to the very top, killing all the
    fox archers. Now kill the FIRST one below you, then WHIP the RIGHT wall until
    you find a block that breaks, revealing a HIDDEN ROOM. In here you'll fight a
    thunder demon and claim a .: MP INCREASE :.. Go back and save again if you
    took too much damage. Keep heading onwards and you will see the boss room up
    ahead. You know what THAT means...

     | - General Information: The Iron Golem is a TANK... He moves slowly and   |
     |   can soak up a lot of damage. Also, be sure to notice the gears up      |
     |   above you. When he pounds the ground, not only will standing on the    |
     |   floor hurt you, but those gears can fall down too! They glow red       |
     |   before they fall, though! Check out his attacks below to overcome      |
     |   this beast. None of them are too hard, so I recommend putting on       |
     |   either the increase damage % card combo or, if you're feeling cocky,   |
     |   the fireball combo (Jupiter + Salamander) and use it to stand by the   |
     |   golem WHILE whipping him. For a safer ranged option just use the       |
     |   CROSS sub-weapon.                                                      |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Golem-PUNCH!: Stand too close to the golem and he'll try to punch you, |
     |   which lunges him forwards a bit and HURTS. Double jump or stay back.   |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Golem-SMASH!: The golem will smash the ground, hurting you if you are  |
     |   standing on the floor, so jump when he does this. This also brings     |
     |   down the gears above you, so be extra careful.                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Golem-THROW!: The golem will hold up a ball of light before throwing   |
     |   it at you. If the light doesn't hit you, it will explode, affecting    |
     |   a wide area around the center of the explosion.                        |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Golem-REGEN!: The golem will occasionally shine white. When he is in   |
     |   this state he will regen health every so often. There's nothing you    |
     |   can do to stop it, so just keep piling on damage. He will regen 50     |
     |   health at a time.                                                      |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
    After the fight, you will finally meet HUGH again, who is none too pleased to
    see you, claiming you are trying to steal his glory! What! Ok... Anyways, go
    into the room on the right to find the KICK BOOTS! These things allow us to
    wall-climb NARROW upwards gaps or gain extra height off of walls... a VERY
    handy thing indeed!
    
    With our newest magical item, it's time to get some additional items! Take a
    look at your map. You'll see THREE places in the "Machine Tower" area alone
    that we didn't get to explore. Well, we can get to ALL of them now. However,
    if you remember one of those places had a door on it and led back to the
    "Audience Room" area, so leave that one for last. It's also the closest.
    
    Head downwards to the unexplored area below the left SAVE ROOM. You'll have
    to climb up the walls here and you'll fight a series of Skeleton Boomerang's,
    a NEW type of enemy. Use your whip spin or a DSS shield here to block their
    boomerangs. At the end of this path is a .: HP INCREASE :. for you. Ok, now
    let's check that area above the second save room below us (the one near the
    entrance to the Machine Tower). This is a much shorter upwards climb guarded
    by two bone towers, but it has a .: MP INCREASE :. at the end!
    
    Now you can either climb back up and go through that door OR you can continue
    dropping down and explore that area by climbing UPWARDS. Either way, that path
    just leads from the middle of the "Machine Tower" area to the "Audience Room"
    area. It contains were-wolves, hyenas, and gargoyles (a palette-swap of the
    gremlin). The were-wolves can be a pain, but a well-placed cross will help to
    take care of them.
    
    
    Ok, let's go grab some more items! Remember the Catacombs? Open your map and
    look at the unexplored area to the bottom right. Yeah, we need to go all the
    way down there. You'll of course find an upwards path up to a .: HP INCREASE
    :..
    
    The next destination will have TWO increases for us. Check the map. See the
    unexplored area to the right in the middle of the map (the area that had the
    clinking men and flea men, remember?). Head over there. In that flea and
    clinking man room, head upwards and you'll soon learn that you can go further
    with your new boots, which lead to a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Now head to the
    right in this very same area to find another area you can reach. This path
    will lead to a room with a door.
    
    
    This area is an IMPORTANT one, but the FIRST thing you'll notice is that
    skeleton that probably just ran heads-first into you. This is a new enemy:
    the Skeleton Athelete... There are PLENTY of them in this corridor, so head
    down it and give each of them a whip to find a .: HP INCREASE :..
    
    Ok, now it may just be my rotten luck, but this next part SUCKS. We're going
    to get another DSS card. From the Skeleton Athelete. But it has a SUCKY DROP
    RATE. Pray that you are luckier than me and put on all your luck stuff. You
    can either use the door to spawn
    
    
       The skeleton athelete will drop the 'Griffin' card!
    
    
    The Griffin card is an attribute card with the power of WIND. Here are
    the new things you can do with the Griffin card:
    
    
       Mercury + Griffin = Wind Whip.
    
       (Note: Hold the attack button to keep whipping.)
    
    
       Venus + Griffin = Intelligence increases by 25%.
    
    
       Jupiter + Griffin = Wind Shield
    
       (Note: This will give you a SHIELD that DAMAGES enemies when you run, a
              skill that reappears in many forms throughout the series. Note that
              it DOESN'T protect you and does about HALF the damage of your whip.)
    
    
    Ok, now it's time to get to the next section.
    
    Check out your map. I'm sure you'll recognize the area you FELL DOWN in the
    beginning of the game, and to the right of it the area you climbed back up.
    There were TWO statues that blocked our progress... north of the second one
    is another area you can use the wall to climb up. This leads to a door on the
    right that brings us to our next section.

     o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    
    
       Eternal Corridor
       ================
    
    
    Well, a new area! Right away you'll see a huge bull coming at you. This is a
    Gorgon, and when it gets close it will breath on the ground. Touch it and
    you'll turn into stone. This area doesn't get it's name for nothing, as we
    have to travel through several rooms. This first room is full of gorgons and
    ectoplasms, but other then that is unremarkable.
    
    
    The next room LOOKS empty, but it has a new enemy as well: the Flame Demon.
    This guy will act like the other demons, flying around and staying still in
    the area, then summoning fireballs which fling off in every direction. He can
    also make smaller red balls fly around him and straight out as well. He is
    really the only challenge in this room.
    
    
    The next room will introduce two new enemies in short order: the Were-Bear and
    the Beast Demon. Beware of the bear's swipe (he has SOME range) and the beast
    demon's projectiles (move backwards to easily dodge them). Crosses are VERY
    helpful here. The rest of the room simply has more of these two enemies.
    
    
    Next you'll meet a DISEMBODIED hand! This thing will attempt to grab you, hold
    on, and do small amounts of damage. Kill them ASAP. There is another flame
    demon in this room as well. Past them room is a drop downwards. Go down and
    you'll see a door on the left. This path is blocked by yet another statue.
    Go back and whip the very RIGHT HAND wall to find a HIDDEN ROOM. You will
    find a .: HEARTS INCREASE :. in here. Go back out and continue to the right.
    
    
    You'll notice a change of surroundings.. a more cathedral look. Head down the
    slope in front of you. The room down here to the right is a WARP ROOM (Warp
    Room #3). You'll also notice the background is more... sewer-y. That is
    totally a word. Keep going downwards. You'll see another room on the right,
    which is a dead end to us (this is actually an entrance/exit to the
    Underground Waterway). Past that you'll see a new spawning enemy even lower:
    the Ghoul (a palette-swap of the Zombie). 
    
    Past the ghouls, whip the LEFT HAND wall. Double-jump and whip it. You'll find
    a HIDDEN ROOM here. You'll find a .: HP INCREASE :. in here. Head back out and
    up, where you will find a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Nice. Now back-track back to
    the chapel area and head right to enter the chapel proper.
    
    
       Chapel Tower
       ============
    
    
    Right away you'll meet some familiar faces in the skeletons and flame armor.
    This whole corridor is full of them, so continue on until you can go right
    or left. Check out the right path if you wish, but it's a dead end. Head up
    and you'll soon meet a new enemy: the Bloody Sword. This thing is devious: it
    will make a beeline straight for you, circle around, then do it again. Gah!
    Oh well, there is a save room directly to the right at least, which is good
    since we have some grinding to do for another DSS card. From who you may ask?:
    
    
       The bloody sword will drop the 'Mars' card!
    
    
    The Mars card is an action card with the power of CHANGE. Here are
    the new things you can do with the Mars card:
    
    
       Mars + Salamander = Fire Sword.
    
    
       Mars + Serpent = Ice Sword.
    
       (Note: Yes, this will FREEZE enemies.)
    
    
       Mars + Mandragora = Rose Sword
    
    
       Mars + Golem = Earth Hammer
    
       (Note: This thing is SLOW. It also hurts enemies standing on the ground.)
    
    
       Mars + Cockatrice = Stone Tonfas
    
       (Note: This attack will turn enemies to STONE.)
    
    
       Mars + Manticore = Poison Claws
    
    
       Mars + Griffin = Sword Draw
    
       (Note: This attack gets stronger as you hold the attack button. My best
              guess is that this is supposed to be a wind katana?)
    
    
    Yikes, that's a lot of new moves! The Mars card has quite a cool effect, huh?
    Well, time to continue on. The room to the far left of this area has a box in
    the way, so we can only go up. Beware of those damn swords, naturally. Head up
    to the left and take out the flame armor to the right. Jump up from there and
    head left. Past the next flame armor and up the stairs, be sure to whip the
    LEFT wall to find a HIDDEN ROOM. You'll find a hyena in here with a .: MP
    INCREASE :.. Head back now and continue upwards. You'll soon have a choice
    of going UP or to the LEFT. Let's go left.
    
    
    Here you can go UPWARDS right away. There will be a series of beast demons
    trying to stop you, but you can find a .: MP INCREASE :. up here. Go back
    down and to the left now. You'll find three brain floats here that you can use
    to get upwards. Some more fancy wall-jumping and double jumps later and you
    will be the proud owner of a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Now go back to the
    previous room and head UP.
    
    
    You'll have to fight some more blades up here, as well as a new doll-like
    enemy: the Marionette. The marionette will CURSE you when you get hit. If you
    didn't know, when you are CURSED you are UNABLE to attack. Quite annoying.
    There are potions to remedy this (dropped by marionettes among other things)
    but it will go away in time as well.
    
    At the second set of stairs, get on the right ledge and go UP the left path,
    which as you can guess has a HIDDEN ROOM with a sword and a .: MP INCREASE :.
    in it. Head back and continue up where you will find a SAVE ROOM on the next
    left-hand door. Continue upwards from here and you'll have an option to go
    up or to the left. The left room is a dead-end (another box), so go up.
    
    In here the ceiling will go open, so your only choice is to go into the left
    hand room (or kill the thunder demon). This room is apparently the bell tower.
    There is a new enemy in here: the Were-Panther. This thing will charge at you,
    punch, and back off. There will be beast demons in here as well, so try to get
    them all with a cross. This room leads to the top of the previous room, where
    you will find ANOTHER thunder demon. Don't go up at the start, travel to the
    right and you'll enter a room with some swords. Kill them and travel upwards,
    where you will find some brain floats that you can use to get to a .: MP
    INCREASE :.. Go back and head upwards now to a new area.
    
    
    This section has several enemies you've faced before (skeleton bombers, heat
    shades, bone heads). Continue on until the FIRST upwards kick-boots path you
    come to. Be sure to whip the RIGHT wall in this section to find a HIDDEN ROOM
    along this path. The room has a gorgon in it with a .: HP INCREASE :..
    
    Continue up the VERY linear path. You'll come to a choice to go UP or DOWN at
    one point. For god's sake go UP (down just goes to where you came from). This
    path will lead to a room on the right, so keep following it.
    
    In this new room, head DOWNWARDS when you can and fight past the gorgons.
    Notice the hole in the wall on the left? That's an escape vent from another
    area. Head UP here and fight past the marionette's to the .: HEARTS INCREASE
    :.. Go back and head UP now as the path wraps around to the north. There's
    a lower path on the way, but it has a box blocking our progress, so head
    through the left-hand opening.
    
    Here battle your way past the were panthers and bears. When you get to the
    far LEFT wall, whip it to find a HIDDEN ROOM. Chuck a cross when you get in
    here, as there is a were-bear blocking the path to a .: HP INCREASE :.. Go
    back and head upwards. The room on the left has a SAVE POINT you can use.
    
    Ok, now since we have a SAVE ROOM nearby I'm going to put you through hell
    once again. We need another DSS card. Our target? The were-panthers below our
    feet! Get on all your LUCK gear and go to town.
    
    
       The were-panther will drop the 'Thunderbird' card!
    
    
    The Thunderbird card is an attribute card with the power of LIGHTNING. Here
    are the new things you can do with the Thunderbird card:
    
    
       Mercury + Thunderbird = Electricity Whip.
    
       (Note: You can HOLD the attack button to keep the whip out as it
              electrocutes enemies.)
    
    
       Venus + Thunderbird = Damage Increases as the % of the map increases.
    
    
       Jupiter + Thunderbird = You will be sent flying when damaged, but take 1/2
                               damage.
    
    
       Mars + Thunderbird = Martial Arts. Hold the attack button to perform a
                            combo.
    
    
    Once you have the card, be sure to go up and save. When you're ready to
    continue, head right from the SAVE ROOM and you'll soon find the boss room
    to the upper right. Head towards the door and you'll see an awesome scene
    where Nathan meets up with Hugh again. This leads to a fight with our next
    boss.

     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: Adramelech is an interesting boss fight. First of |
     |   all, all that he does is sit there. He's anything but easy though, as  |
     |   ALL of his attacks take up the majority of the screen (don't worry,    |
     |   they are QUITE dodgeable!). For this fight, the CROSS will help out a  |
     |   TON (he is quite large after all). Also, if you've uncovered as much   |
     |   of the map as you can (basically, if you've been following this guide) |
     |   I would recommend using the THUNDERBIRD + VENUS combo for some serious |
     |   damage. Here are Adramelech's attacks:                                 |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Bubbles: I'm not really sure if this is an 'attack' per-say, but it's  |
     |   definitely an inconvenience. Small little bubbles will constantly      |
     |   spawn underneath Adramelech, but they just sit there. A quick spin of  |
     |   the whip will clear an area around you easily.                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Fireballs: Adramelech will summon a TON of blue fireballs from around  |
     |   his head/hands that try to zoom in on you. The BEST way to avoid these |
     |   is to retreat to a wall and jump over them as needed (double jump can  |
     |   REALLY help here).                                                     |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Skulls: Adramelech will spawn a ton of skulls from one of his hands,   |
     |   which will then sweep down towards the floor and across the area in a  |
     |   "U" formation. You can actually jump over these things if you time it  |
     |   right, but it's much safer to SLIDE towards the direction the skulls   |
     |   spawn from.                                                            |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |

    Once the boss is dead, its head will explode and fall off, revealing the weird
    purpleness underneath. Head into the RIGHT room and step on the button to
    EXPLODE the nearby STATUE. This button will actually explode ALL of the
    statues in the castle!  Past the statue will be a .: MP INCREASE :.. Head back
    to the save room now. On the way back you will learn more about Hugh and
    Nathan's back-history. I smell an EXTREME case of jealousy... that and another
    Castlevania story that could be told...
    
    
    With those statues blown up, let's head back down the chapel (no quick exit
    for us!). On the way, you'll meet a new enemy: the Thunder Armor, who replaces
    some of the enemies throughout the chapel. Ok, so now that the statues are
    blown up, here are our options. I'm sure you remember seeing the statues for
    the first time on your climb up to the Audience Chamber. If you went back and
    revisited them you will find the following:
    
    
    The BOTTOM statue leads into the "Underground Waterway". This area is FULLY
    EXPLORABLE right now except for ONE problem: the water is DEADLY. It will
    damage you any time you touch it at a VERY fast rate. What did you expect,
    the water is BLOOD RED! NOT really an option.
    
    The statue ABOVE that one leads to the "Underground Gallery", which is where
    we are going next... but there's a box in the way of this entrance! We are
    being corralled, guys!
    
    We only have ONE option left! Go to WARP ROOM #3 (the one by the chapel).
    Remember the statue that we found while going through the "Eternal Corridor"
    (which is directly to the left of the warp room)? That is our ticket to the
    next section!

    In this area you'll run into a new enemy right away: the Imp. These little
    guys like to throw bouncing rocks at you (a sub-weapon in some Castlevania
    games). Past the imps is a room to the left, but it has a box in the way.
    
    Go downwards now. Ignore the path to the left for now and explore the bottom
    area. I'm sure noticed the button, which summons a moving platform that goes
    from the left to the right. Down below is a palette swap of the zombie: the
    Wight, as well as some brain lords. The right room is blocked by another box.
    What we need to do here is summon the platform, run underneath to the open
    area, and ride it as it goes to the right, killing the brain lords. SLIDE
    under the gap when it stops for the .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Go to the room on
    the left now.
    
    
    In here you'll fight a new enemy: the Harpy. It will try and ram into you as
    well as shoot out feathers every now and again. In the middle of this area is
    an upward path leading to some STAT UPGRADES, but we can't get to them yet.
    Head to the left to continue.
    
    Here you'll be bombarded by specters, the newest palette-swap. Head upwards
    to find a SAVE ROOM. I'm sure you can guess that those brick steps will fall
    after you step on them. After that fall all the way down (which isn't very
    far) and enter the RIGHT room.
    
    
    In here you'll find two new enemies: the King Moth and the Death Mantis. The
    moth's main goal in life is to poison you with that dust, whereas the mantis
    packs a powerful punch (use a cross on it for an EASY kill). Break the block
    past them and take out their brothers in arms. Head through the next door for
    another up-and-down room. Go straight across to the RIGHT door though.
    
    In here you'll have to battle a mantis and a harpy right away. Use a cross to
    make it manageable. Break the rock and continue to the right, battling more
    of these creatures. The room to the far right has a thunder armor in it along
    with a .: MP INCREASE :.. Head back to the up and down room now.
    
    
    Drop all the way down where you'll see a path to the left and to the right.
    Take the right path first. In here you'll meet a new enemy: the Killer Bee,
    along with the familiar evil hands. The bee will try to ram you, which poisons
    you! Boo! Keep going onwards being careful of those bees and you'll come
    across a new enemy: the Man Eater. This thing is a plant that shoots seeds at
    you. It will also rear back and fire them off like a machine gun at times (you
    can slide under or retreat) as well as lunge forwards at you at times. Keep
    going to the end of the hall to find another room.
    
    This room is small and has a new enemy in it: the Poison Armor. This guy lets
    loose clouds of poison when he swings his sword, and given this rooms close
    quarters it is highly likely you will be poisoned. Take him out ASAP (the
    cross works wonders) and claim the .: HP INCREASE :.. Now back-track to the
    up/down room and head LEFT this time. This corridor is filled with the exact
    same enemies the last one was, so take your time and be sure to kill those
    damn bees! Go out the door to the left.
    
    
    Ok, time to get us another DSS card. I want to show you where the SAVE ROOM
    is first, though. In this bigger room, go straight UP and take the door on the
    RIGHT. You'll be in another up/down room. The SAVE ROOM is directly above you
    on the door to your left. Now that you have a point of refuge, go back to the
    last Man Eater, pop on your LUCK boosting equipment, and kill the hell out of
    it.
    
    
       The man eater will drop the 'Diana' card!
    
    
    The Diana card is an action card with the power of Creation. This card will
    create attacks based on attribute cards (for example, Diana + Salamander will
    make a fireball appear with each attack). Here are the new things you can do
    with the Diana card:
    
    
       Diana + Salamander = Fireball.
    
    
       Diana + Serpent = Ice Shards.
    
       (Note: Three ice shards will appear. These can freeze enemies.)
    
    
       Diana + Mandragora = Rose Petals.
    
       (Note: Three rose petals will appear.)
    
    
       Diana + Golem = Earthquake.
    
       (Note: Each whip sends a tremor along the ground.)
    
    
       Diana + Cockatrice = Rocks.
    
       (Note: Three rocks fire with every whip. These can turn enemies to stone.)
    
    
       Diana + Manticore = Poison Shower.
    
       (Note: This is a diagonal attack. Also, in my opinion it sucks hardcore.)
    
    
       Diana + Griffin = Wind Wave.
    
       (Note: This attack consumes a LOT of MP, but is very powerful. The wind
              wave spans the screen as well.)
    
    
       Diana + Thunderbird = Static Whip.
    
       (Note: This turns your whip electric when you spin it. Not a very good
              combo.)
    
    
    Well, the Diana card adds something else to our repertoire, if nothing else.
    Let's continue onwards! From the man eater genocide spot, past the left-hand
    door you can drop down to find a new, rather pathetic enemy: the Myconid.
    This annoying mushroom will spew spores out at us, but is unremakrable after
    that. Continue to the left past them. Get up the ledge and whip the left wall
    to find a HIDDEN ROOM. This room has a mantis in it with a .: HEARTS INCREASE
    :..
    
    Go back now and upwards. As i'm sure you noticed before, two poison armors
    patrol up here, but we want to go through the left door. In here, you need to
    be QUICK and DASH over the crumbling rock platform, sliding under the wall at
    the very last second. Upwards from here is a dead-end (a box) with a poison
    armor guarding it. This is one of the exits to the "Audience Room". Instead of
    wasting time up there, whip the LEFT wall (JUST to the left of where you slid
    in at) to find a HIDDEN ROOM.
    
    This is one of the bigger hidden rooms in the game and has another stone
    walkway that we need to dash over. This walkway is a little faster, so start
    running BEFORE you enter the room to help. Once you slide under the wall you
    can go down to find a .: MP INCREASE :..
    
    With all of that out of the way, head back to the SAVE ROOM. We are about to
    face another boss soon, so be sure to save and fill up on hearts if you need
    to. Head out of the save room and UP, into the next left-hand door to meet
    the next boss.

     | - General Information: Here you will fight TWO Dragon Zombies... Wow!    |
     |   This arena is fairly big, giving you the space you need along with six |
     |   platforms. The dragons themselves will be on the left and the right,   |
     |   but constantly move their heads around. You can be hurt by their heads |
     |   OR necks (but you can touch their claws without getting hurt).         |
     |                                                                          |
     |   The best place to fight is the lower platform, as their heads will     |
     |   often be hovering to the left or right of it. However, they also LOVE  |
     |   to move around, forcing you to jump to a higher platform or fall to    |
     |   the floor. Falling down to the floor is a good idea, as many of their  |
     |   attacks can't reach down there. As far as an attack plan goes, the     |
     |   zombies HATE earth damage. For example, the Diana + Mandragora attack  |
     |   can do 99 damage per rose plume (but its SPENDY). The Earth Whip can   |
     |   also come in handy due to its range. Personally, I used good dodging   |
     |   combined with chucking crosses like crazy and the Venus + Thunderbird  |
     |   combo. Check out their attacks below, keeping in mind that their head  |
     |   movement is your greatest enemy.                                       |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Debris: Both dragons like to do this move. They will hit the wall      |
     |   closest to them, making rocks fall from above. You can either dodge    |
     |   the rocks or spin your whip for a few seconds to easily avoid them.    |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Fireballs: This is the left dragons special move. He will lower his    |
     |   head to the floor and start spitting out fireballs while moving his    |
     |   head upwards. You can dodge this by being on the ground or getting on  |
     |   the higher center platform and jumping between the fireballs.          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Energy Shot: This is the right dragons special move. He will lower his |
     |   head to the floor and rise up, spitting out an energy ball that        |
     |   explodes and stays on the screen for a period of time. This is easy to |
     |   avoid if you drop to the floor. Otherwise just jump over it.           |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Bite Attack: This is a pretty standard move that both dragons do. They |
     |   will snap their jaws a few times and then lunge at you. Again, drop to |
     |   the floor or jump above them. Or, y'know... move slightly to the left  |
     |   or the right...                                                        |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Cannibalism?!: This move occurs when you've slain one of the two       |
     |   dragons. Basically, the remaining dragon will feed on the dead one,    |
     |   restoring 300 HP in three bites. Lay on the damage while you can, as   |
     |   his head remains relatively stationary.                                |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |

    After felling the might beasts (who give 15000 experience EACH) the door to
    the upper left will open. Go in it to find the Heavy Ring, which will FINALLY
    enable us to push those boxes out of the way!
    
    As you can imagine, we have a LOT of boxes to push now! Let's do this in some
    sort of order though. First of all, there are THREE boxes in the "Underground
    Gallery" area ALONE. Open your map and look! There's the one to the left that
    leads out into the "Abyss Stairway", and there are TWO to the RIGHT that will
    allow you to explore those un-explored areas. Let's go after those two first.
    By the way, this 'Heavy Ring' room is GREAT for refilling your hearts.
    
    
    Ok, head back the way you came through the "Underground Gallery"
    (alternatively you can exit to the "Abyss Stairway" and enter the "Underground
    Gallery" through the way you first came in). Either way, get to the room where
    you had to press the switch to make a platform appear. The bottom-right entry
    leads to a box you can push. Past that is a series of poison armors (about 5
    of them) that you'll need to get past or defeat to find a .: HP INCREASE :..
    
    Go back to the button room and take the upper-left entry to find another box.
    Behind this one is a harpy with a .: HEARTS INCREASE :..
    
    Now, where to go from here... the "Chapel Tower" is the closest place, so head
    there next. Open the map. See the save point to the far right? The room
    directly to the left has a box you can push. Past that are TWO new enemies:
    the Hipogriff and the Arch Demon. The hipogriff spits out wind at you while
    the arch demon is just a stronger version of the beast demon (note that he
    spits out TWO waves of energy attacks). Past them you will find a .: HP
    INCREASE :..
    
    
    Ok, time to get us another DSS combo card! The monster we must merciless
    slaughter is the arch demon! Once you get good at dodging his projectiles,
    he's hardly a challenge.
    
    
       The arch demon will drop the 'Apollo' card!
    
    
    The Apollo card is an action card with the power of Explosives (yes,
    explosives). This card is UNIQUE in the fact that you have to input a button
    sequence! Weird, huh?! It's an easy button sequence though, here look:
    
    Activate the card combo, then press:
    
    
       DOWN, DOWN/LEFT, LEFT, LEFT/UP, UP + ATTACK
    
                        - OR -
    
       DOWN, DOWN/RIGHT, RIGHT, RIGHT/UP, UP + ATTACK
    
    
    See? It's an easy thumb-roll from down to up while you attack!
    
    
    Here are the new things you can do with the Apollo card:
    
    
       Apollo + Salamander = Bomb.
    
    
       Apollo + Serpent = Ice Ball.
    
       (Note: These can freeze enemies.)
    
    
       Apollo + Mandragora = Rose Throw.
    
    
       Apollo + Golem = Stalactite Attack.
    
       (Note: These 'stalactite's' look like SPEARS to me... This has a VERY cool
              attack animation though...)
    
    
       Apollo + Cockatrice = Comet.
    
       (Note: Another COOL attack animation!)
    
    
       Apollo + Manticore = Poison Bomb.
    
    
       Apollo + Griffin = Tornado Attack.
    
       (Note: This attack has you throw a whirlwind, which spits out blades of
              wind.)
    
    
       Apollo + Thunderbird = Lightning Ball.
    
    
    Now we need to head UP to the SAVE ROOM above us. In here you will find
    another new flying enemy: the famous Succubus! She will fly around and stop
    from time to time to fire three projectiles at you! Past her is another arch
    demon and a .: HP INCREASE :..
    
    
    Ok, there's ONE more box above us we can get to. It's worth it, trust me. Look
    at the map. See the two exits to the left above you? The top one is a box that
    you can push. Head up and fight past the armors and marionettes, past the area
    that you have to wall-kick to get higher and you'll find the box down a drop.
    
    Beyond the box is... a hallway! Here you will find a palette swap of the
    were-panther enemy: the Were-Jaguar. This thing acts EXACTLY the same. There
    are hyenas here too. Past this corridor is another familiar face: the Grizzly!
    Again, this thing acts just like the bears from before. You'll eventually come
    to a choice to go down or to the left. Go check out the left first. You'll
    soon see that you just plain can't continue! The walls are too high! Go back
    and head DOWN now. This leads to a WARP ROOM (#4).
    
    
    Ok, we have THREE more boxes to go get. There is one in the "Catacombs", so
    lets head down and grab it. It's the unexplored area to the right of the save
    point! You'll find another new enemy down here: the Fox Hunter. These guys
    shoot TWO arrows back to back, so be careful. There's two of them here too,
    and they fire alternately, so good timing is required. Kill them and the arch
    demon to find a .: HEARTS INCREASE :..
    
    
    Next lets go explore the unexplored area in the "Audience Room", to the south
    of the first WARP ROOM. On the way there you may very well notice that there
    are new enemies scattered throughout the "Audience Room", such as the succubus
    and the Forest Armor, who whips his vines a lot like you whip your whip. Once
    you get in the box room, kill the poison armor and the slime to claim the
    .: MP INCREASE :..
    
    
    Now, we only have ONE more box to move. Look at your map at the far left of
    the screen. There's a OPEN square to the left of the WARP ROOM #2, as well as
    an unexplored room to the left of that (and TWO upwards paths we can't explore
    yet). Go explore the room to the FAR LEFT of the warp room, the one near the
    upwards path. You'll find a box in here that you can push with a thunder armor
    past it. Oh, and a .: HP INCREASE :..
    
    Ok, now to get to the next area, go explore the area to the LEFT of WARP ROOM
    #2. You'll find a box you can push out of the way. Drop down the hole you find
    here to continue to the next area.

    Ah, a new area. Underground again! You'll find a hipogriff flying around this
    area. At the bottom, head to the right. Past the fox hunters and arch demon
    you can find a .: MP INCREASE :.. Head back and go left now. You'll find a
    box that they want you to push to continue up to the door, so do it (or just
    use a wall-kick and double jump).
    
    In the next room, break the block underneath so you can push the top box to
    continue. Past that you will find a thunder armor and below him a new enemy:
    the Poltergeist. This enemy is basically a possessed furniture set that will
    hover around and fire off its pieces at you one by one. Yikes! Its easy to
    kill though. At the bottom here you can find a SAVE ROOM to the LEFT. Continue
    to the right now. There will be three moths in here, so kill them all. Now we
    have to do this box "puzzle" in a certain order.
    
       1: Push the TOP box down.
    
       2: Break the BOTTOM rock and push that box to the right.
    
       3: Break the TOP rock and push that box to the right.
    
    Slide under the wall to continue.
    
    This next room is HUGE. Notice the box to the left as you head all the way
    DOWN. May as well kill all the bone heads too. At the bottom here you'll see
    a .: HEARTS INCREASE :., but you have to EARN it. You see, you can head UP
    this room on the RIGHT side, slaughtering thunder armors to get to the box
    you saw earlier. THEN you need to push it all the way down to get to the
    item. Head left through the door once you pick up the heart item.
    
    
    In here you will find a couple of fox hunters up above you. This "puzzle"
    is easy as well, just break the ROCK here, then jump up to the highest ledge
    and push the TOP box down. Now push both boxes to the left to reach the door.
    
    In this room you'll meet a new type of armor enemy: the Holy Armor. This guy
    lumbers along like all armors but will stop to point his sword straight ahead.
    When he does, a laser will come out. So... duck! You can keep attacking him
    while ducking even, so he isn't that big of a threat.
    
    Now, after playing with the armors go UP all the way on the RIGHT side of the
    room. Once you are on the very top ledge, whip the RIGHT wall to find a HIDDEN
    ROOM. In here kill the poltergeist and grab the .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Now
    head back out. Go down a bit and push the top box to the left. You can use
    this new open space to get UP to the ledge where the .: MP INCREASE :. is
    located. Just dash past the gap, jump ONCE and wall kick off the near wall,
    then use your double jump to get UP. This is MUCH easier if you go ahead and
    kill everything in the room first (no distractions). Head out to the left when
    you're ready.
    
    
    Out here you will be assaulted by a succubus. Slay it and drop down to the
    platform directly below you. Whip the RIGHT wall here for ANOTHER HIDDEN ROOM.
    Inside is a grizzly and a fox, but behind them is a .: HEARTS INCREASE :..
    Sweet. Go back now and fight another succubus. Go further down and take the
    next entry on the right. Inside you'll find an arch demon and more grizzlies
    then you can shake a stick at. Head into the door on the right now.
    
    In here forget about playing with the boxes and stone blocks for a second.
    Kill the two moths above you and stand on the top platform. See the ceiling
    area? You can double jump and wall kick to stand up there. Get up there now
    and go to the LEFT hand wall to whip it and find a HIDDEN ROOM. This room has
    a holy armor in it guarding a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Whip the hell out of him
    right away (a cross helps). Go back to the previous room and kill the moths.
    Now to move forwards, push the LEFT box to the right so you can break the top
    rock. Now go down to the lower ledge and break all the rocks so you can push
    the two boxes to the right and continue.
    
    
    Move to the next area on the right and kill the armors. There are TWO stat
    items in this area: one to the upper left and one to the upper right. However
    we just plain can't reach the upper right one, so you'll have to be content
    with the .: HP INCREASE :.. We'll come back to this area later, so go back to
    the succubus up and down room. Continue down again (fighting you know what)
    and enter the door at the bottom.
    
    Here go ahead and kill the various bone heads in the room. Now go ahead and
    break all the blocks on the higher level. Go down to the lower level and push
    that box to the RIGHT all the way. Now go up and push the LEFT box to the
    LEFT, making it fall down below, then push it to the right to the other box
    down here. You don't need to push it flush with the box (leave a small space
    between them). Now you can push the last upper box down to the right and be
    able to push it all the way to the right so you can slide under the wall.
    
    
    In this big room, go forward and kill the poltergeist. Now, jump up to the
    ledge on the upper right and whip the wall there to find a HIDDEN ROOM that
    has a hipogriff inside with a .: MP INCREASE :.. Go back and head down to run
    into a forest armor. The room on the left is a SAVE ROOM. Further down you
    will see two more forest armors and a path to the LEFT and a path to the
    RIGHT. Go to the right first.
    
    Here you will encounter two new enemies: the Dryad (who just sits there and
    fires white balls at you) and the Golem (who just... walks). Take them out
    and head right until you hit a wall. There is a spot you can slide under the
    wall here, but DON'T DO IT YET! It leads back to the catacombs! Instead go up
    to find a .: HP INCREASE :.. With that in hand go back to the save room and
    save. Now go back down and take the LEFT path. You'll see right away why I had
    you come here last: a boss door is staring us in the face. Oh goody! Time for
    a boss fight against a VERY familiar foe. Be sure to come into this boss fight
    with full health and hearts!

     |                                                                          |

     | - General Information: Well, it kind-of disappoints me that there is no  |
     |   dialog here, but oh well. Like most Castlevania games, as you fight    |
     |   Death, small circular scythes will constantly spawn and come at you.   |
     |   These are pretty darn easy to dodge but if you do get overwhelmed just |
     |   spin your whip for a second. I'll also tell you right away that Death  |
     |   has TWO forms. The first form just floats left to right, occasionally  |
     |   doing the first two attacks listed below. The second has the rest of   |
     |   the attacks. Note that scythes will appear constantly on BOTH forms.   |
     |   The second form is some sort of weird turtle/death hybrid, and is VERY |
     |   slow.                                                                  |
     |                                                                          |
     |   Unless you are a dodging master, probably the BEST combo to use for    |
     |   this fight is JUPITER + SERPENT, as the four ice balls will pretty     |
     |   much negate the scythes. Alternately you can use JUPITER + MANTICORE   |
     |   or just use a good DEF or ATK combo  if you don't care about the       |
     |   scythes. Crosses are a great subweapon to go with (as usual), but      |
     |   especially for the 2ND FORM, as it stays in one place for longer.      |
     |   Keep piling on the pain and avoid the attacks below to come out on     |
     |   top.                                                                   |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Bone Spears: Death will stop in mid-air (and the scythe attack will    |
     |   stop) while he shoots bone spears from his body. They travel side to   |
     |   side and diagonally, so either retreat a bit or get near him and duck. |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Energy Shot: Death will stop in mid-air and summon a big green energy  |
     |   ball in each hand before shooting them at you. These don't home in on  |
     |   you and are easily avoided by simply moving out of the way.            |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Gravity Spell: This is an "attack" the 2ND form will use. A magic seal |
     |   appears in front of Death, stopping you from jumping very high at all. |
     |   Death will more than likely follow this attack up with one of the two  |
     |   attacks below.                                                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Scythe Swipe: This attack occurs more frequently the closer you are to |
     |   Death. He will simply swipe his scythe claws at you, moving forward as |
     |   he goes.                                                               |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Ground Pound: The weird hybrid Death creature will stay in a single    |
     |   spot for a second, then raise upwards slowly. After raising up for a   |
     |   bit he will drop down, striking the ground. This will hurt you if you  |
     |   are standing on the ground, so JUMP! When used after the gravity spell |
     |   jumping is even trickier, so timing is more important. Not a very      |
     |   threatening move.                                                      |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
    After the fight, go into the left-hand room to grab another magic item: the
    CLEANSING. This item cleanses certain bodies of water so that they are safe
    to traverse (aka: The Underground Waterway). Before running off to the save
    room, whip the left wall here to find a HIDDEN ROOM with a .: HP INCREASE :.
    behind it!
    
    Go back and save, then go to that area where you can slide into the catacombs
    at. Go ahead and take the plunge. As you enter the catacombs proper you will
    notice right away that there are new enemies HERE too. Well, we've seen the
    grizzly before, but the Arachne is new! Head up the gap to the "Abyss
    Stairway" and climb up. There are new enemies throughout the castle as well.
    You can find some Wind Armor walking up in the very north part of the castle
    (in the outer wall area). These guys swing a sword and make wind gusts come
    out. You can also find an enemy called a Nightmare in hidden room up here.
    
    Ok, before going to the next area lets go grab a new card. This one is a
    ways out of our way: you need to ALL the way back the IRON GOLEM boss room.
    Once you get there you will see two out-of-place candles. These are actually
    the new enemy we are going to get the card from: the Scary Candle. Whipping
    the candle will make a creature come out. It will come out and fall to the
    floor, then melt away. We have to be FAST to kill it though. At level 32 I
    put on the VENUS + THUNDERBIRD combo, then I whipped the candle. As the
    creature jumps out, I whipped it on it's way down, then as it was lying on
    the floor I whipped it again to kill it (2 whips are needed to kill it).
    
    I won't lie: this is a CHORE. It took me 30+ kills to do it and I didn't use
    the luck combo because I just couldn't cause enough damage without the venus
    and thunderbird combo. Keep at it though, you'll LOVE this upcoming card.
    
    
       The scary candle will drop the 'Uranus' card!
    
    
    The Uranus card is an action card with the power of Summons. This card is
    UNIQUE in the fact that you have to input a button sequence! Weird, huh?!
    It's an easy button sequence though, here look:
    
    Activate the card combo, then press:
    
    
       DOWN, DOWN/LEFT, LEFT, LEFT/UP, UP + ATTACK
    
                        - OR -
    
       DOWN, DOWN/RIGHT, RIGHT, RIGHT/UP, UP + ATTACK
    
    
    See? It's an easy thumb-roll from down to up while you attack!
    
    
    Here are the new things you can do with the Uranus card. Each and every one of
    these summons makes Nathan do that cool floating move while the summoned
    creature comes forth and does an attack based on their element. How cool is
    that! Some are better then others, though. Check out the DSS COMBOS section
    for a more detailed explanation. Here are the new combos we have now:
    
    
       Uranus + Salamander = Summon a Salamander!
    
    
       Uranus + Serpent = Summon a Serpent!
    
    
       Uranus + Mandragora = Summon a Mandragora!
    
    
       Uranus + Golem = Summon a Golem!
    
    
       Uranus + Cockatrice = Summon a Cockatrice!
    
    
       Uranus + Manticore = Summon a Manticore!
    
    
       Uranus + Griffin = Summon a Griffin!
    
    
       Uranus + Thunderbird = Summon a Thunderbird!
    
    
    
    I recommend going to a save point and summoning them all, just to see what
    they do! It's pretty cool!
    
    
    Ok, now let's go to the next section. Head to the "Abyss Stairway". Take the
    drop from the start of the game to get there faster, and start climbing up the
    stairway. Take the first door on the right (where the statue used to be) to
    reach the next section!

     o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    
    Drop down into the water in this area (which is blood red) and watch as it
    becomes pure! If we tried to traverse this area earlier (which we could have)
    that blood red water would have hurt the hell out of us!
    
    Drop down to the edge on the left and whip the lower left wall to find a
    HIDDEN ROOM. Inside is a new enemy: the Frozen Shade. Like the heat shade,
    she will float around and then summon two ice blocks to hit you. Simply swing
    your whip around for a bit. Easy! Gather the .: HEART INCREASE :. in here
    while you are at it.
    
    Head out now and to the right. Under the platforms a host of MERMEN will
    constantly spawn! These classic Castlevania creatures will pop up out of the
    water and fire a water ball at you. Kill a few if you want, then head to
    the room on the right. In here you can find a new enemy in the water below
    (the Spearfish; just don't run into it) and past that you'll see a switch.
    Nearby is a new type of armor: the Ice Armor. This guy will form an icicle
    in his hands, throwing one icicle above at you (you can duck under this) and
    one below at you by the ground (jump over this).
    
    
    Are you ready for another grinding session? We can get another DSS card, so
    turn on your luck and get ready to grind!
    
    
       The ice armor will drop the 'Neptune' card!
    
    
    The Neptune card is an action card with the power of Healing! Cool, huh?!
    Basically what is does is that when you pair it with an attribute card, you
    not only become IMMUNE to that attribute card's element, but you also RESTORE
    HEALTH whenever you get hit by that element. Of course, when you use this card
    you need to know what element your enemy is.
    
    
    Here are the new things you can do with the Neptune card:
    
    
       Neptune + Salamander = Fire attacks heal character.
    
    
       Neptune + Serpent = Ice attacks heal character.
    
    
       Neptune + Mandragora = Plant attacks heal character.
    
    
       Neptune + Golem = Earth attacks heal character.
    
    
       Neptune + Cockatrice = Stone attacks heal character.
    
    
       Neptune + Manticore = Poison attacks heal character.
    
    
       Neptune + Griffin = Wind attacks heal character.
    
    
       Neptune + Thunderbird = Electric attacks heal character.
    
    
    Quite an interesting card. We must continue onwards, though! As you'll soon
    figure out, the switch nearby raises the block staircase, so hit it so we can
    get past. Go to the far right and you'll see another switch to lower the
    staircase.
    
    Climb up the staircase now past the ice armors until you see another switch.
    Hit this one to close yourself off up here and open the path to the right.
    Head that way and kill the ice armors (Neptune+Serpent isn't a bad idea here).
    You'll find a switch at the end of this path you should hit! Now you can go
    either up or down.
    
    Head up and you'll see a ice armor to kill by a pool. After killing him, whip
    the LEFT wall to find a HIDDEN ROOM. Inside is a shade with a .: MP INCREASE
    :.. Go back now and go into the upper room. Here you'll find some brain floats
    that you need to freeze to get upwards (only three of them though, thank god).
    Up here is a shade with a .: HP INCREASE :..
    
    Go back down now and take the DOWN path. You'll find a new room to the right.
    In this new room, hit the SWITCH right in front of you and GO BACK to the
    previous room. We're headed to the unexplored room to the LEFT of this big
    room. Just go up the ledges and to the left. You'll find a room with an ice
    armor in it and a .: HP INCREASE :.. However, there's more here for us! Walk
    THROUGH the left-hand wall (no whipping needed) to find a .: HEARTS INCREASE
    :. at the end! Cool, huh? Go back down to the new room on the right after
    you get those upgrades.
    
    
    Make sure the stairway is UP here and continue to the right. There's a weird
    brain-like enemy circling the platforms here called a Abiondarg. Go past the
    long pool and hit the switch at the end so you can go upwards to the left. The
    path to the left is linear from here on as there are no more switches, so
    follow it up and then down and to the right to a new room.
    
    
    You'll find a new enemy flying around here: the Witch. Go forwards until you
    see another switch. Hit it once and go back to the previous room. Now you can
    go to the left and JUMP to the RAISED BLOCKS (don't fall down for petes sake!)
    so you can go up again. You'll have access to a room on the right now where
    you can pick up a .: HP INCREASE :.. Also note outside of the stat room the
    stair boxes leading up to the ceiling. We just plain can't get up there right
    now, so we'll have to come back later.
    
    
    Head to the next room now. Go past the switch and head downwards, going left
    when you can. This area leads to a pool with witches, spearfish, and a new
    enemy: the Fishhead (it's basically a bonehead). At the end though, you can
    get a .: MP INCREASE :.. Go back and check out the RIGHT room to find a SAVE
    POINT you can use (you probably need it by now unless you're using that ice
    healing DSS combo).
    
    Go back up now, as far up as you can go and head to the left. At the very end,
    go up again and nab the .: MP INCREASE :. you find there! Now, head back to
    the switch below, whip it, and go back up to find the staircase lowered. Up
    here you'll find a witch and a switch (hey, that rhymed!). Hit the switch and
    continue into the next room.
    
    Kill the shades here as you go down if you wish, then go to the far right to
    find another switch. Hit it and go to the left, up the stairs. As you go you
    will come across a new enemy: the Siren. Watch our for her feather attack.
    Keep going down the path to the next room. Here you will have to go downwards.
    Once you get to the switch turn on your Nepture + Serpent combo and go right.
    You will soon meet a new enemy: the Ice Demon. Like all demons he floats
    around, but he will summon chunks of ice that can freeze you solid. Get hit
    after that and you're looking at 250-300 damage in one shot! Past him is
    another new enemy: the Lizardman, who stabs with his spear, but past him is
    a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Note that the lizardman can also hide behind his
    shield if he wants to! Ok, now go back to the switch and hit it. We want to
    make sure the box stairs to the north are UP. Once you have them up, go back
    to the previous room.
    
    Here head upwards and to the right (now that the path is clear). You'll be
    able to get to a northern exit to the right, which leads to the northern
    portion of the last room we were in. In here you'll find another ice demon
    and plenty of lizardmen, as well as a .: MP INCREASE :. at the end. Once you
    have it, backtrack your steps to get to the southern portion of this same
    room. Follow the upper path here (the lizardman path) to the next room.
    
    
    Here go UP, watching out for the evil hands. You'll see a path that goes
    straight up and a room to the right which leads to a SAVE ROOM. Be SURE to
    save! Now go back and take the path down and to the right, making sure you
    reach the next room healthy. You'll see why in a second as you reach a blue
    boss room door! Yep, are you ready!?

     | My Level: 35                                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: This battle arena is kick-ass! Before the fight   |
     |   Camilla will have a chat with Nathan, trying to turn him to the dark   |
     |   side. This arena is BIG for a reason: After your chat Camilla will     |
     |   turn into a HUGE monster after your chat and float back and forth. She |
     |   also has several area-spanning moves (see below). Not that you can     |
     |   ONLY hurt Camilla, NOT the skull she is riding on!                     |
     |                                                                          |
     |   Honestly, the BEST DSS combo you can use is Uranus + Thunderbird. Pull |
     |   off 3-4 of those and its over (even less with a good cross throw here  |
     |   and there). If that just isn't an option, the Jupiter + Manticore or   |
     |   Serpent option isn't bad as you can just forget about the purple       |
     |   balls and just focus on hurting Camilla. Due to how BIG she is crosses |
     |   are just plain awesome for this fight. Alternately, you can use a good |
     |   ATK combo and just dodge all her moves listed below.                   |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Bubbles: Camilla takes a cue from Death and CONSTANTLY spawns purple   |
     |   bubbles which make a straight line towards you. Easily negated with a  |
     |   spin of your whip or the Jupiter combos listed above.                  |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Dive: Camilla will do a dive attack in a "U" shape, trying to ram you. |
     |   Easily avoided by running away.                                        |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Thunderbolt: As Camilla floats from the left to the right she will     |
     |   shoot thunderbolts behind her, making it harder to get by her. Either  |
     |   use GREAT timing or just dash-jump over her from above if you need to  |
     |   get by.                                                                |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Wind Blades: Camilla will take a break from floating back and forth    |
     |   and raise up. Dozens of wind blades will spawn out of her wings,       |
     |   sweeping outwards covering a large area. Hard to avoid, just try to    |
     |   jump to a higher platform to avoid it.                                 |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Laser Beam: Camilla only does this attack when she's at the far right  |
     |   or left of an area. You will see the skull mouth open up and a screen  |
     |   spanning laser beam will fire off. You can either get behind her (and  |
     |   keep attacking) or duck to avoid it. If you're on the top of a         |
     |   platform, get as high as you can when the beam raises upwards.         |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
    After the fight go into the open room on the right to get a purely awesome
    item: the Roc Wing! This item lets you shoot yourself upwards by pressing up
    and "R". Try it out in the Camilla room! Awesome, no?! As you can guess, this
    opens up a LOT of new areas for us. Seriously, a lot. First, lets go back into
    the middle of the Underground Waterway. Look at your map. See the big huge
    rooms you passed to your right? Find the one small room in the middle of the
    area and use your new roc wing to get on the boxes and whip the wall. You'll
    find an upwards area that you can travel to find a siren and a .: HP INCREASE
    :.. Now go back to the save room by the boss area and travel upwards.
    
    As you travel up, you'll see a space off to the left. Go explore it to find a
    .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. From there, go back to the up/down section and whip the
    RIGHT WALL. We are looking for a HIDDEN ROOM. It's about straight across from
    where we got the heart item. Once you find it you'll battle a wind armor for a
    .: HP INCREASE :.. Keep going up to end up near warp room #3. Ok, this next
    section is going to be a little different than our "explore a new area/kill a
    new boss" format we had going. Why? Well, because we have a LOT of stat items
    to get! We're also going to be nabbing a few new cards! Anyway, continue on to
    the next section to explore the castle with your new Roc Wing!

     o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    
    Time to collect things! I'll break this section up by area! You can no doubt
    take a look at your map and find all sorts of new places to go, but I have to
    have SOME sort of format for this guide! Anyway, here we go!
    
    
    
       "Underground Gallery":
       ======================
    
    The area we want is the unexplored area to the RIGHT of the first save room
    in this area (it MAY be explored if you TRIED). Its in the area with the imps
    and harpys. You'll find the ceiling give way and you can reach a .: MP
    INCREASE :. and a .: HP INCREASE :. in this area. Nice. Go back to the warp
    room #3 now and take it once to warp room #4.
    
    
       "Chapel Tower"/"Outer Wall":
       ============================
    
    Leave the warp room and go up and through the door on the left. Zoom upwards
    and you'll find a .: MP INCREASE :. waiting for you. Now go to the left. You
    will see a disgusting creature floating around. Thankfully that is all that it
    does, but if it touches you you will be cursed! This thing is a Legion (which
    is a boss in other games). Fall down and you'll see you are in a HUGE room.
    At the bottom you'll have two more legions to deal with and a new enemy: the
    Fallen Angel! Crosses will definitely help you out here. You can zoom up and
    check a little cubby on the right for a .: HP INCREASE :..
    
    Ok, time for a little more grinding. The fallen angel has a card that we want!
    This is a tough area to grind in as it isn't very user-friendly and has legion
    enemys that get in our way. If you ever get low on health just use the nearby
    warp room to get to safety. Here's what we're going after:
    
    
       The fallen angel will drop the 'Saturn' card!
    
    
    The Saturn card is an action card with the power of familiars! Yep, you now
    have the power of pets!
    
    
    Here are the new things you can do with the Saturn card:
    
    
       Saturn + Salamander = A bat familiar will appear! This bat will spit out
                             fireballs whenever you attack.
    
    
       Saturn + Serpent = A ghost familiar will appear! This ghost automatically
                          attacks.
    
       (Note: This ghost WILL freeze enemies, but it usually will just kill them
              seconds later. A bad choice if you are trying to freeze something.)
    
       Saturn + Mandragora = An owl familiar will appear! This owl will spit out
                             a green earth ball whenever you attack.
    
    
       Saturn + Golem = A hawk familiar will appear! This hawk dives at enemies,
                        hitting multiple foes at a time.
    
    
       Saturn + Cockatrice = A medusa head familiar will appear! This medusa will
                             spit out rocks whenever you attack.
    
       (Note: These rocks CAN petrify enemies!)
    
    
       Saturn + Manticore = A ghast familiar will appear! This ghast automatically
                            attacks.
    
       (Note: This ghast seems SLOWER than the ghost, but more powerful.)
    
    
       Saturn + Griffin = A wind sprite familiar will appear! This wind sprite
                          will fire wind energy whenever you attack.
    
    
       Saturn + Thunderbird = A crow familiar will appear! This crow will
                              automatically try to electrocute enemies.
    
    
    
    There you have it! Not bad! My favorite is the ghost!
    
    Also, to the RIGHT of the fallen angel is a DOOR leading to a new AREA: the
    infamous..
    
    
       =============
       BATTLE ARENA!
       =============
    
    
    This area is a beast unto itself, and deserves its own section. Refer to the
    table of contents or just search for the battle arena to find it. Be warned!
    It is NOT an easy area by any means!
    
    Ok, back to gathering items with the ROC WING.
    
    
    Go back to WARP ROOM #3 and go into the very bottom of the Chapel Tower. Go
    all the way RIGHT to the portion of the map guarded by a stack of bone heads
    and a flame armor. You'll find an area to fly up to the right with a .: HP
    INCREASE :. waiting for you.
    
    
    
       "Catacombs"/"Abyss Stairway":
       =============================
    
    
    Time to go explore the catacombs and abyss stairway. I'm sure you remember the
    BIG drop you took at the very start of the game. Well, fall down it. At about
    TWO SQUARES SOUTH of where the "underground warehouse" section touches this
    up and down section is a section of the LEFT WALL that you can break,
    revealing a HIDDEN ROOM. It may take some time to find, but you have a roc
    wing so you can do it! Inside you will find a .: HP INCREASE :.. But that's
    not all! Break the ceiling here to find another room! Inside is the very-well
    hidden SKELETON MEDALIST. Without knowing what to do, he will run to the left
    and kill himself. Check out the 'Extras' area at the end of the guide to see
    what all this fuss is about.
    
    
    We can also get our LAST ACTION DSS CARD now. Go to the Cerebus BOSS ROOM
    where, much like the IRON GOLEM boss room, we will find another weird candle!
    This one is called a Trick Candle. What I like to do here is equip all my LCK+
    equipment while making sure my STR is 500+. Now, use this room to fill up all
    your hearts if you haven't already (this room is GREAT for heart refills).
    
    Stand to the left or right of the candle at about the MAXIMUM distance your
    cross will reach. Now chuck a cross at the candle, followed by another a few
    seconds later so that the candle jumps into a cross. Then when its on the
    floor you can whip it twice to kill it. Keep at it and you'll eventually get
    your card!
    
    
       The trick candle will drop the 'Pluto' card!
    
    
    The Pluto card is an action card with the power of special. What in the
    world does that mean!? Well, read below!
    
    
    Here are the new things you can do with the Pluto card:
    
    
       Pluto + Salamander = Item Crush! Use the special button combo (the same one
                            you've been doing for summons) to perform the item
                            crush! The effect depends on the sub-weapon you have
                            selected. See the DSS section for more detail.
    
    
       Pluto + Serpent = Double sub-weapons. Use double the sub-weapons for the
                         same heart cost. See the DSS section for more detail.
    
    
       Pluto + Mandragora = Increases experience points by 20%. Great when
                            leveling up!
    
    
       Pluto + Golem = Projects an image of yourself! Your shadow double will do
                       whatever you do!.
    
    
       Pluto + Cockatrice = Defense increases based on PLAY TIME.
    
    
       Pluto + Manticore = Sub-weapons use MP instead of HEARTS.
    
    
       Pluto + Griffin = Walking and dash speeds are increased!
    
    
       Pluto + Thunderbird = Strength increases based on PLAY TIME.
    
    
    Well, there's definitely a lot of cool new things here! Those STR and DEF
    combo's can definitely be useful with their "based on play time" usage (you
    CAN leave the game on and let it run after all...).
    
    
    After that, go up the "Abyss Stairway". See the area to the left and above
    the SAVE POINT on your map? The big unexplored area? We can get to it now of
    course. Get up there to find a .: HP INCREASE :..
    
    
    
       "Triumph Hallway"/"Underground Warehouse":
       ==========================================
    
    
    Ok, look at your map. On the very left-hand side you'll see THREE obvious
    unexplored areas. One is down in the "Underground Warehouse" in that up/down
    area that we fought the succubuses in, so let's head there. Once you get there
    kill the succubus (it is annoying!) and fly UP. You'll see that a .: HP
    INCREASE :. is being guarded by an arch demon, so take him out.
    
    It's also interesting to note and worth pointing out that in the HIDDEN ROOM
    below where you entered this up/down room at is a new enemy: the Lilith! This
    is one nasty enemy though, as it has a LOT of HP and a high ATK. However, it
    is also worth a whopping 20,000 EXP, which is a crazy lot! An ideal place to
    grind, but not very practical for out level 38-ish selves (which is what I
    was out when I found her!).
    
    From there, head down to the next door on the right and continue past the
    grizzlies. Keep going to the FAR RIGHT room full of holy armors and moths,
    where you can use your roc wing to explore UP the RIGHT wall to find a
    .: HEARTS INCREASE :..
    
    
    Go back up now into the "Triumph Hallway" and head for those other two
    unexplored areas. Out by the castle gate you can jump straight up to find a
    .: HP INCREASE :.. Go back now and act like you're about to go to the "Machine
    Tower" to get to the other unexplored area, where you can zoom up to find an
    ice shade guarding a .: HEARTS INCREASE :..
    
    
       "Audience Room"/"Outer Wall":
       =============================
    
    
    Ok, one last area to go back to before our next section. Go ahead and look at
    the map. I'm sure you'll notice the big open areas in the "Outer Wall" area.
    First, go explore the open area to the far LEFT, which as you will remember is
    the area that is connected to the "Machine Tower". However, as you explore you
    can check out the RIGHT hand side now. Shoot up this path into a new outer
    wall area.
    
    
    Here you can go right to meet a NEW enemy: the Were-Horse. This guy likes to
    make rocks fly at you with his hammer. Not too much of a threat. You can also
    find every sub-weapon up here, all in one nice convenient location. There are
    were jaguars here as well. Once you have killed everything be sure to explore
    the roofs of this area. You will find a .: MP INCREASE :. by following the
    jaguar path on the left of the roof and a .: HEARTS INCREASE :. by exploring
    the right of the roof. Two in one room! Nice!
    
    
    Ok, now head to the first save room (the one in the middle of the map). See
    the SAVE POINT to the right? There's an unexplored area above it! Head there
    and you will find a witch guarding a .: HEARTS INCREASE :..
    
    
    There is also a new candle it that room that had all the skeleton atheletes
    in it called a Mimic Candle! It drops a very nice piece of LCK equipment, but
    unless you are super strong it's doubtful you can kill it right now. Either
    wait and come back for him or check out the 'extras' section of the guide
    later.
    
    
    Ok, time to go to the next section. Go to the only place I haven't had you
    zoom up in the air: the first area of the "Outer Wall". Explore the ceiling
    out here and you'll see some wind armors and a path further up to the left.
    Look for an entry onto the marble column area to the left and slay the wind
    armors, as they guard a path to a .: MP INCREASE :. with that in hand, go fly
    up the far LEFT hand side of the screen to get to some stairs, which lead up
    to our next section.
    
    
    ==============================================================================

    Ah, now there's some music you should recognize! Classic. Continue onwards
    being careful of the legion enemies (remember they can curse you). Go up to
    the third ledge on the left and whip the LEFT hand wall to find a HIDDEN ROOM.
    You'll be in close quarters with a legion, so chuck a cross at it to claim a
    .: MP INCREASE :..
    
    Go back and fight the legions again. Go to the right and downwards, as we
    want to get to the lower room on the right. This entire room is nothing but
    wind armor after wind armor, so you'll be a master at killing these things as
    you continue onwards, then up and to the left. I really like the background
    of this area. All the wind armor slaying is worth is as you'll find a .: HP
    INCREASE :. at the end.
    
    Go back and stay on the right side and head up, avoiding or killing the legion
    enemies. As you go into the room on the right you'll see two new enemies right
    away: the Evil Tower (a palette swap) and beyond him the Minotaur! The
    minotaur is worth noting as he will swing his weapon and send a wave at you,
    so either jump higher or retreat! Double jumping and landing at the waves
    starting point with a whip to the creatures face works well. At the end of
    this path you will find a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Again, go back to the legion
    filled room. This time take the left path up to a new area.
    
    
    In here head up. You will meet more evil towers and the siren. Head to the
    very top of this area, near the second siren and whip the LEFT wall to find a
    HIDDEN ROOM. Inside you'll find a catoblepas, which you may or may not have
    seen before. Try to jump over the thing for the .: HEARTS INCREASE :. lest
    you be stoned! Head back out once you got it and head to the right. The room
    on the far right over here is a SAVE ROOM! Head out and down now. You'll see
    a door on the right, but I want you to go further down past that, to the area
    where there are a bunch of evil towers and a siren. kill them all and check
    out the right wall. Jump up to the small ledge here and whip the wall to find
    a HIDDEN ROOM.
    
    
    This room stretches to the right, and is full of minotaur enemies for you to
    fight. Don't worry about getting hurt, as long as you don't die, cause at the
    end of the hallway is a .: HP INCREASE :.. Head back out now and go up and
    through that right door we passed earlier.
    
    Don't go rushing through this area! A new enemy, the Dullahan, will be
    stampeding through here. They are easy enough to take care of though, just
    hang back and whip them! There are five in this room altogether, so be
    careful and head up at the end. Here you will see ice and fire shades ready
    to attack you in unison. Just be careful not to get frozen here. Continue down
    the path and you'll see a door on the left. Ignore it for now and head down
    to a room on the left.
    
    This room leads to another hallway. Past the first pillar you'll see a new
    enemy: the Alraune. This thing has HIGH defense until it comes out of its
    flower! But when it does, vines will appear on both sides. Fret not! There
    is ALWAYS one section of the ground that is vineless, so find it and keep
    attacking it from your safe section of ground. After the Alraune you will see
    a Demon Lord. You know what these things do, but beware, this one shoots out
    THREE waves of energy balls! At the end of the path is a .: MP INCREASE :.
    for you. Now go back and take the door we passed earlier!
    
    Head into this room and you'll meet a new type of armor: the Dark Armor. These
    guys shoot out dark holes in a random pattern, either upwards, straight, or
    down, so you're going to have to pay attention to them! They drop the elusive
    Double Grip item, which only activates when you equip two of them! I remember
    spending HOURS farming these things when I was younger. It's up to you whether
    or not you want to get them, you can check out the 'Accessories' section for
    yourself!
    
    Kill the two armors and proceed to the door on the right. In here kill the
    armor and tower below, then go to the right and head upwards. At the next
    platform that you meet a dark armor at, whip the RIGHT wall to find a HIDDEN
    ROOM. Inside is a dark armor (cross!) and a .: HP INCREASE :.. Go back out
    and kill the armor to the left. You'll see a room to the left as well, but
    first I want you to drop down and follow that path to a lower room on the
    left. Inside you will find some legion and catoblepas. Defeat them and go to
    the left to find a .: HEARTS INCREASE :.. Go back to the big room now.
    
    
    Ok, truth time. The path above the upper path to the left leads to a BOSS ROOM
    and we haven't saved in awhile. Plus, there is NO SAVE ROOM nearby (the
    closest one is the one you last used). So, instead of going there YET, take
    the path to the left. Out here there is a STRONG enemy called DEVIL that is
    quite a challenge. We don't REALLY want to fight him right now (I want to get
    us to a SAVE ROOM first and let you fight him as you wish). Thankfully, a lot
    of his attacks involve teleporting, so you can get by easily if you wish.
    
    I'm going to kill him right now and tell you about him here (it is as good a
    place as any). Devil will float in mid air and often teleports before doing
    a move. All of his moves are darkness based: if you touch the dark clouds
    you'll get hurt. One of his moves places beams of darkness on the ground
    (somewhat similar to the Alaraune's attack). You can avoid this by double
    jumping and then using the roc wing to stay up near the ceiling long enough
    for the attack to miss. He also likes to spray darkness out of his hands,
    which I recommend you try to get near him, duck, and keep whipping him. He
    can summon a whirling tornado of darkness around him, which you can just
    stand at the edge of and chuck crosses at him. His only other move is making
    a shield appear. Crosses are your best friend when taking down this monster.
    He awards 10,000 EXP per kill as well.
    
    
    Whether you kill him or ignore him for now, the room on the right leads to a
    drop with a couple of legion enemies and towers. Notice the ledges to the left
    as you fall?! Get up to the first ledge on the left and whip the wall to find
    a HIDDEN ROOM. In here you will have to kill several towers and dark armors,
    but its all worth it for the .: HEARTS INCREASE :. at the end.
    
    Go back to the previous room and drop down to the room on the left. This is
    WARP ROOM #5! It is perfect for getting us close to a save room, like the one
    to the right of WARP ROOM #1! We're going to want to save and head to the next
    boss room while kicking ass along the way to keep as much of our HP as
    possible.
    
    
    Once you get to the blue door spend some time refilling your hearts. When
    you are ready, go through to meet your next foe.

     | - General Information: Well, isn't this a surprise! What, it isn't!? No  |
     |   matter, Hugh's jealousy has finally overcome him (with a little help   |
     |   from Dracula) and he is out for blood. Hugh's main weapon is a sword   |
     |   but he also has several special moves (see below). On top of that he   |
     |   has access to all of the games subweapons (which HE can carry all at   |
     |   once but Nathan can't figure out). This arena is actually Dracula's    |
     |   Throne Room, and has quite a bit of room above it. You can actually    |
     |   go up there and rest (use a healing DSS move, for example) if you      |
     |   wished. Once you damage Hugh enough, he will power up, increasing his  |
     |   stats and changing how his sub-weapons function. He gains a new move   |
     |   as well.                                                               |
     |                                                                          |
     |   By now you should know you favorite DSS combo. With most of the map    |
     |   uncovered, the Venus + Thunderbird combo does nearly 100 damage per    |
     |   hit. You could also use Uranus + Thunderbird for a good summon,        |
     |   or make him hurt with Jupiter + Salamander. I also found Saturn +      |
     |   Serpent to be good! And don't forget to chuck those crosses! Keep at   |
     |   him and you will emerge the victor!                                    |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Sword Swipe: What can I say about this one? This is Hugh's favorite    |
     |   move and the easiest to dodge! Make him pay whenever he uses it!       |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Sub-Weapons: Hugh has access to all of the games sub-weapons. Let me   |
     |   correct that, I've seen him use all of them but the stopwatch. I won't |
     |   list every sub-weapon here, but you of all people know how they work.  |
     |   Be careful! When he powers up at the half dead mark he will start to   |
     |   use MULTIPLE sub-weapons at once!                                      |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Energy Sword: Hugh will raise his sword to the heavens, making a much  |
     |   larger energy sword appear! He will then bring it crashing down on     |
     |   you! Throw a cross at him as he's standing still then retreat a safe   |
     |   distance away.                                                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Sword Blitz: Hugh will use this move if there is an appreciable amount |
     |   of distance between the two of you. He will essentially charge at you  |
     |   with his sword at a high speed. Jump to avoid it and try to whip him   |
     |   on the way down.                                                       |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Sword Flames: Hugh will pause for a moment, you'll see his sword light |
     |   up, then he will plunge it into the ground. Wings of flames will       |
     |   erupt around him. This is an area attack. Retreat a short distance     |
     |   away and hit him with a cross.                                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Spirit Swords: Hugh will only do this move when he is powered up. He   |
     |   will raise his sword to the heavens and summon several spirit swords.  |
     |   these swords will try to home in on you. Each one that hits you will   |
     |   restore a (SMALL) portion of Hugh's HP.                                |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
    
    After the fight, Hugh will (conveniently) come to his sense, pouring out his
    heart to you. After the confessional, Hugh will ask you to rescue his dad.
    Go into the left door now to obtain the LAST KEY.
    
    
    With this item, all we have to do now is return to the beginning area of the
    game and enter the locked door there. Doing so will lead to the next section,
    but now is just about the right time to try out the BATTLE ARENA if you
    haven't yet. Whatever you do, be sure to save!

       Ceremonial Room
       ===============
    
    
    Drop down to the very bottom of this area and whip the floor to find a HIDDEN
    ROOM. Yep, even at the very end of the game there are still hidden rooms. In
    here you will find a .: HP INCREASE :.. Now, head up to the boss door. Ready
    for this?
    
    
    You will see Master Baldwin tied up in the background. After a brief chat
    with Dracula the fight will begin in earnest.

     | My Level: 46                                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: Time to take on the big boss. This room is fairly |
     |   small and Dracula, in true Castlevania fashion, will be warping        |
     |   around. Do your best to make sure he doesn't corner you with his       |
     |   warping (stay in the middle of the room and react from there). To be   |
     |   quite honest, this fight is extremely simple, just check out his       |
     |   attacks below and keep laying on the pain.                             |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Electric Bats: Dracula will pull back his robe and a bunch of          |
     |   electric bats will come out! The move in a fairly random (but almost   |
     |   predictable) pattern. Get back and jump/duck to avoid them.            |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Fire Bats: Dracula will pull back his robe and three fire bats will    |
     |   come out. This one is super easy to dodge, just double jump over them  |
     |   and keep whipping Dracula.                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Ice Bats: Dracula will pull back his robe and fire two ice bats at     |
     |   you. Very easy to double jump over.                                    |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
    After defeating him you will see another couple of scenes. Afterwards you
    can move into the light to proceed to the next fight or go back to do
    whatever you want to do in the castle. Right now we should have ALL upgrades
    and 100% map completion rate! Go onto the final boss now once you are ready!

     |                                                                          |
     | My Level: 47                                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: The background in this area is quite awesome, and |
     |   the area itself is HUGE. There are also two platforms in this area,    |
     |   which you will need as Dracula is HUGE!                                |
     |                                                                          |
     |   Dracula will teleport in this area as well. If you've been collecting  |
     |   all the stat increases you will have quite a bit of MP, so you could   |
     |   just use the thunderbird summon throughout the fight. It's also very   |
     |   possible to not use any card combos and just avoid his attacks.        |
     |   You need to whip the eye in the center of his chest to damage him.     |
     |   Halfway into the battle Dracula will begin to flash wildly. During     |
     |   this phase he will attempt to run into you with his body a few times   |
     |   before appearing as a large eyeball surrounded by bats. Read the       |
     |   attacks below, don't be shy about using your supplies, and keep on     |
     |   damaging him and you'll be ok.                                         |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Laser Beams: Dracula will stretch out his hand and laser beams will    |
     |   come out of his shoulder mouths and hit the ground. Waves of fire will |
     |   follow, so retreat of get up and out of the way.                       |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Poison Bubbles: Dracula will stop and stay still for a bit, releasing  |
     |   dozens of poison bubbles. It's not a bad idea to equip something like  |
     |   Jupiter + Manticore or Jupiter + Serpent for this attack to keep       |
     |   yourself safe.                                                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Meteor Shower: Dracula will summon a meteor shower! This is one of the |
     |   more damaging attacks, and is hard to dodge as well. Stay close to the |
     |   ground double jump/duck to avoid the meteors while hurting Dracula.    |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Rush Attack: Dracula will do this move when his body is invincible and |
     |   the eyeball surrounded by bats is appearing. Basically what he is      |
     |   trying to do is ram you. The best way to avoid this now that you know  |
     |   it is coming is to dash away from him, double jump, then use the ROC   |
     |   WING at the top of your jump. Dracula will follow you upwards but will |
     |   totally lose you when you shoot straight up. Repeat this until the eye |
     |   and bats shows up, then attack however you want (Thunderbird Summon!). |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
    Watch the scenes that follow as the sun rises another day without Dracula.

    The first thing that shocked me when I first tried the Battle Arena was that
    no MP was allowed. Well, I guess that helps to even things out (Just a quick
    note, you CAN use spells in the arena, just not for very long! Check out the
    'Extras' section to see how). I also have no idea why they didn't put in music
    to the Battle Arena... that's just so... crappy! *Sigh, oh well...
    
    
    The Battle Arena is the real test of how good a vampire killer you are! We
    will go through it room by room. I'll point out strategies in each room as
    well as certain rare drops. Remember that you can retreat for the arena by
    using the gaps in the up and down sections between rooms if you want. It's
    better to live to fight another day after all!
    
    
    Also, before tackling the arena you are going to want to load up on recovery
    items, which means grinding. Here are the items you may want to take a supply
    of with you and where to get them:
    
    
    Antidotes:
    
    
       Dropped by: Just about anything that can poison you (Slimes, Worms, Poison
                   Armors, etc...).
    
       You'll want to make sure you have a half dozen of these on hand as you will
       undoubtedly need them.
    
    
    Cure Curse:
    
    
       Dropped by: Just about anything that can curse you (Marionettes, Legions,
                   etc...).
    
       You'll want to make sure you have a half dozen of these on hand as you will
       undoubtedly need them.
    
    
    Potion High:
    
    
       Dropped by: Wind Armor, Legion, Devil.
    
    
       I recommend fighting the Devil over and over while acquiring a handful of
       these. You will gain valuable experience, Potion Highs (equip a lot of
       LUCK) and more importantly you will be a MASTER at fighting the Devil. Who
       knows, that may help in the Battle Arena.
    
    
    Heart Mega:
    
    
       Dropped by: Arachne.
    
    
       Go down to the catacombs and grab at least 2-3 of these things. This will
       let you throw crosses like crazy. You don't need TOO many, as there are
       candles between almost every room.
    
    
    Also, if you want to do the mind trick, you'll need some powerful MP items
    like the MIND HIGH (Poltergeist, Marionette, Wight, etc...). 2 of those per
    use is good.
    
    Onto the...
    
    
                                   !** BATTLE ARENA **!
    
    
    
    o----------o
    |  Room 1  |
    o----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Were-Jaguar x1
             Were-Wolf x1
    
    
    An easy start. You can kill the jaguar without even having the wolf move, and
    then finish off the wolf with a single cross.
    
    
    o----------o
    |  Room 2  |
    o----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Hipogriff x2
             Catoblepas x2
    
    
    Go in and chuck a cross in the air to hit the hipogriffs. Now take a long
    jump over the catoblepas and fight the birds on the right hand side. Once
    they are dead, the catoblepas pose no challenge.
    
    
    o----------o
    |  Room 3  |
    o----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Wind Demon x2
             Witch x3
    
    
    Death from above! Take out the first wind demon near the left door so you
    aren't fighting two at once! You can pick off the left witch easily too. Now
    you can focus on the last demon, fightng in the open on the left, and take
    care of the witches afterwards.
    
    
    o----------o
    |  Room 4  |
    o----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Stone Armor x3
             Devil Tower x12
    
    
    A very easy room, just remember to twirl your whip and you'll do fine.
    
    
    o----------o
    |  Room 5  |
    o----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Skeleton x5
             Skeleton Bomber x5
             Skeleton Spear x4
             Electric Skeleton x3
    
    
    Wow, that's a lot of skeletons. This room is still not TOO challenging. Throw
    a cross towards the door you came in at and watch it obliterate everything on
    the ground floor. Just play clean up from there.
    
    
    o----------o
    |  Room 6  |
    o----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Flame Demon x2
             Bone Tower x7
    
    
    This is a HOT room. Both demons will attack from the onset, so jump up and
    put some crosses in their face. With any luck they'll do the small fire orb
    move and you can just stand diagonally from them to make it miss you, followed
    by more crosses. The bone towers don't stand a chance after that.
    
    
    o----------o
    |  Room 7  |
    o----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Fox Hunter x5
    
    
    Pathetically easy. Forward >> Duck >> Kill >> Repeat.
    
    
    o----------o
    |  Room 8  |
    o----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Poison Armor x3
             Bloody Sword x3
    
    
    Argh, two of the enemies I hate the most. Chuck a couple of crosses at the
    first armor and step back a step or two as the swords will try and get you
    (they will poison you TOO!). Use an antidote ASAP whenever you get poisoned.
    Try and take care of the swords before the armors to make things 100% easier.
    
    
    o----------o
    |  Room 9  |
    o----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Abiondarg x24
    
    
    Another easy room! Try and kill the creatures when they are on the TOP of the
    LEFT of the walkway so you can get to any drops they may give you.
    
    
    o-----------o
    |  Room 10  |
    o-----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Legion x3
             Marionette x12
    
    
    Yikes, what a room! Use a few crosses at the beginning to take out the
    immediate threat and clear an area to fight in (which is IMPORTANT). The rest
    is easy from there.
    
    
    o-----------o
    |  Room 11  |
    o-----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Minotaur x7
    
    
    This is an excellent room to pull off a thunderbird summon (I really do
    recommend pulling off a summon at the start of the room). If you don't want
    to your best bet is to start throwing crosses, but you are bound to get thrown
    around by the minotaurs ground waves. Try your best to clear a space so you
    can handle the rest of the minotaurs like normal.
    
    
    o-----------o
    |  Room 12  |
    o-----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Arachne x3
             Succubus x3
    
    
    Throw a cross to take out the first arachne with no problem, then do your best
    to handle the two succubuses near the left door (you don't want the third one
    joining in). Use crosses to make things easier. This is HARD to come out
    unscathed.
    
    
    o-----------o
    |  Room 13  |
    o-----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Alraune x2
             Demon Lord x5
    
    
    This is a hard one. Without something like the summon trick you are pretty
    much going to eat SOME damage. Without summoning you can throw 2 crosses at
    the demon lord down below and whip the upper one before getting hit. Then kill
    the lower demon while throwing crosses at the upper one. From here, do some
    hit-and-run cross throwing to take out the middle demon lord. Now you can kill
    the lower right alraune worry free. From there, do some some more hit-and-run
    cross throwing on the other two demon lords and you're set.
    
    
    o-----------o
    |  Room 14  |
    o-----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Hyena x8
    
    
    This room is pretty easy, just wait for the pause in the hyena's attack and
    drop down and chuck a cross to take out the majority of the enemies. Clean up
    whatever is left.
    
    
    o-----------o
    |  Room 15  |
    o-----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Devil Armor x3
             Evil Pillar x12
    
    
    Ok, THIS room can kill you in a hurry, as the evil pillars stay true to their
    namesake and will STONE you if they hit you. Regardless, get in two quick hits
    to kill the ones close to the door. Now you can use crosses to kill the NEW
    enemy in this room: the Devil Armor. These guys work exactly like the Dark
    Armor that you've fought many times before, so treat them the same way. Kill
    the rest of the room with patience, and draw the armors to you when you can.
    
    
    *IMPORTANT!*
    
    You can get an ATTRIBUTE card, the BLACK DOG CARD from the Devil Armors. It is
    their rare drop (they also drop potion highs) but this is where you get it.
    Unlike other cards, I won't list its affects here. I'll let you look at the
    'DSS Combos' section for yourself.
    
    
    o-----------o
    |  Room 16  |
    o-----------o
    
    
    Enemies: White Armor x3
    
    
    This room is significantly easier than the previous room. Chuck some crosses
    at the approaching armors and duck under their attack. Keep the pressure on
    the armors and they'll fall.
    
    
    *IMPORTANT!*
    
    You can get an ATTRIBUTE card, the UNICORN CARD from the White Armors. It is
    their rare drop (they also drop potion highs) but this is where you get it.
    Unlike other cards, I won't list its affects here. I'll let you look at the
    'DSS Combos' section for yourself.
    
    
    o-----------o
    |  Room 17  |
    o-----------o
    
    
    Enemies: Devil x1
    
    
    Your final challenge. A Devil! Thankfully you have the whole place to
    run around in. Make sure you refill your health and hearts if you need them:
    it would be a shame to die now! We've faced this enemy before, so I'm going
    to copy and paste my advised from earlier here as he has all the same moves.
    
    
    Devil will float in mid air and often teleports before doing a move. All of
    his moves are darkness based: if you touch the dark clouds you'll get hurt.
    One of his moves places beams of darkness on the ground (somewhat similar to
    the Alraune's attack). You can avoid this by double jumping and then using
    the roc wing to stay up near the ceiling long enough for the attack to miss.
    He also likes to spray darkness out of his hands, which I recommend you try
    to get near him, duck, and keep whipping him. He can summon a whirling tornado
    of darkness around him, which you can just stand at the edge of and chuck
    crosses at him. His only other move is making a shield appear. Crosses are
    your best friend when taking down this monster.
    
    
    Once it is dead, proceed through the door on the left. You will get your
    prize: the SHINNING ARMOR. That's right, they misspelled it in the game. Oh
    well, it adds character!
    
    
    Congrats on defeating the Battle Arena!

     | Boss Battle -                   Cerberus                   - Boss Battle |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
     |                                                                          |
     | My Level: 6                                                              |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: Cerberus will be with you in a FAIRLY small       |
     |   room. There are ledges in the room as well, so you can easily get      |
     |   by him when you need to. Watch out for his attacks listed below.       |
     |   For this fight I recommend using the FIRE WHIP and the HOLY WATER      |
     |   sub-weapon. If you get near him while he's doing the 'Electric Ball'   |
     |   attack and lay down some holy water and fire whip he will fall easy.   |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Beam Attack: Cerberus will charge across the screen and jump onto a    |
     |   lower ledge. He'll then shoot a screen-spanning beam across the room.  |
     |   you pretty much need to be above or below him (preferably attacking    |
     |   him) when he does this.                                                |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Electric Ball: Cerberus will howl and summon two lightning orbs.       |
     |   Cerberus will stay in place shaking while the orbs shoot lightning     |
     |   downwards.                                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
     | Boss Battle -                 Necromancer                  - Boss Battle |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
     |                                                                          |
     | My Level: 13                                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: The Necromancer is a fun fight! He will float     |
     |   around the room (which has a single platform in it) so you'll have to  |
     |   watch out for him. For this fight I recommend the CROSS subweapon we   |
     |   picked up earlier. I would also advise to put on either the VENUS +    |
     |   SALAMANDER combo or the MERCURY + MANDRAGOR combo (Venus is better).   |
     |                                                                          |
     |   Watch out for the Necromancer's attacks listed below. Also note that   |
     |   he will change forms halfway through the fight and summon skeletons    |
     |   instead of zombies. FUN. The BEST time to hurt the Necromancer is      |
     |   when he is SUMMONING, so be sure to chuck some crosses and go to town. |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Circle Attack: The Necromancer will make six circular orbs rotate      |
     |   around him before firing them off at you three at a time. Easy to      |
     |   dodge with your double jump.                                           |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Zombie Summon: The Necromancer will summon four zombies to patrol the  |
     |   area below. More of a nuisance than a danger.                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Form Change: Upon losing half of his health, the Necromancer will turn |
     |   into a skeletal demon, losing his previous attacks but gaining the two |
     |   lower attacks. He also has a slight damage boost here.                 |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Energy Ball: The Necromancer will envelop himself in green energy and  |
     |   bounce around the room, trying to ram into you. He bounces at angles   |
     |   though, giving you a chance to avoid him.                              |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Skeleton Summon: The Necromancer will summon four skeletons to patrol  |
     |   the area below. Again, more of a nuisance and more annoying than the   |
     |   zombies from before given their bone throwing.                         |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
     | Boss Battle -                  Iron Golem                  - Boss Battle |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
     |                                                                          |
     | My Level: 16                                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: The Iron Golem is a TANK... He moves slowly and   |
     |   can soak up a lot of damage. Also, be sure to notice the gears up      |
     |   above you. When he pounds the ground, not only will standing on the    |
     |   floor hurt you, but those gears can fall down too! They glow red       |
     |   before they fall, though! Check out his attacks below to overcome      |
     |   this beast. None of them are too hard, so I recommend putting on       |
     |   either the increase damage % card combo or, if you're feeling cocky,   |
     |   the fireball combo (Jupiter + Salamander) and use it to stand by the   |
     |   golem WHILE whipping him. For a safer ranged option just use the       |
     |   CROSS sub-weapon.                                                      |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Golem-PUNCH!: Stand too close to the golem and he'll try to punch you, |
     |   which lunges him forwards a bit and HURTS. Double jump or stay back.   |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Golem-SMASH!: The golem will smash the ground, hurting you if you are  |
     |   standing on the floor, so jump when he does this. This also brings     |
     |   down the gears above you, so be extra careful.                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Golem-THROW!: The golem will hold up a ball of light before throwing   |
     |   it at you. If the light doesn't hit you, it will explode, affecting    |
     |   a wide area around the center of the explosion.                        |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Golem-REGEN!: The golem will occasionally shine white. When he is in   |
     |   this state he will regen health every so often. There's nothing you    |
     |   can do to stop it, so just keep piling on damage. He will regen 50     |
     |   health at a time.                                                      |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
     | Boss Battle -                  Adramelech                  - Boss Battle |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
     |                                                                          |
     | My Level: 22                                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: Adramelech is an interesting boss fight. First of |
     |   all, all that he does is sit there. He's anything but easy though, as  |
     |   ALL of his attacks take up the majority of the screen (don't worry,    |
     |   they are QUITE dodgeable!). For this fight, the CROSS will help out a  |
     |   TON (he is quite large after all). Also, if you've uncovered as much   |
     |   of the map as you can (basically, if you've been following this guide) |
     |   I would recommend using the THUNDERBIRD + VENUS combo for some serious |
     |   damage. Here are Adramelech's attacks:                                 |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Bubbles: I'm not really sure if this is an 'attack' per-say, but it's  |
     |   definitely an inconvenience. Small little bubbles will constantly      |
     |   spawn underneath Adramelech, but they just sit there. A quick spin of  |
     |   the whip will clear an area around you easily.                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Fireballs: Adramelech will summon a TON of blue fireballs from around  |
     |   his head/hands that try to zoom in on you. The BEST way to avoid these |
     |   is to retreat to a wall and jump over them as needed (double jump can  |
     |   REALLY help here).                                                     |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Skulls: Adramelech will spawn a ton of skulls from one of his hands,   |
     |   which will then sweep down towards the floor and across the area in a  |
     |   "U" formation. You can actually jump over these things if you time it  |
     |   right, but it's much safer to SLIDE towards the direction the skulls   |
     |   spawn from.                                                            |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    
    
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
     | Boss Battle -             Twin Zombie Dragons              - Boss Battle |
     +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
     |                                                                          |
     | My Level: 25                                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: Here you will fight TWO Dragon Zombies... Wow!    |
     |   This arena is fairly big, giving you the space you need along with six |
     |   platforms. The dragons themselves will be on the left and the right,   |
     |   but constantly move their heads around. You can be hurt by their heads |
     |   OR necks (but you can touch their claws without getting hurt).         |
     |                                                                          |
     |   The best place to fight is the lower platform, as their heads will     |
     |   often be hovering to the left or right of it. However, they also LOVE  |
     |   to move around, forcing you to jump to a higher platform or fall to    |
     |   the floor. Falling down to the floor is a good idea, as many of their  |
     |   attacks can't reach down there. As far as an attack plan goes, the     |
     |   zombies HATE earth damage. For example, the Diana + Mandragora attack  |
     |   can do 99 damage per rose plume (but its SPENDY). The Earth Whip can   |
     |   also come in handy due to its range. Personally, I used good dodging   |
     |   combined with chucking crosses like crazy and the Venus + Thunderbird  |
     |   combo. Check out their attacks below, keeping in mind that their head  |
     |   movement is your greatest enemy.                                       |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Debris: Both dragons like to do this move. They will hit the wall      |
     |   closest to them, making rocks fall from above. You can either dodge    |
     |   the rocks or spin your whip for a few seconds to easily avoid them.    |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Fireballs: This is the left dragons special move. He will lower his    |
     |   head to the floor and start spitting out fireballs while moving his    |
     |   head upwards. You can dodge this by being on the ground or getting on  |
     |   the higher center platform and jumping between the fireballs.          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Energy Shot: This is the right dragons special move. He will lower his |
     |   head to the floor and rise up, spitting out an energy ball that        |
     |   explodes and stays on the screen for a period of time. This is easy to |
     |   avoid if you drop to the floor. Otherwise just jump over it.           |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Bite Attack: This is a pretty standard move that both dragons do. They |
     |   will snap their jaws a few times and then lunge at you. Again, drop to |
     |   the floor or jump above them. Or, y'know... move slightly to the left  |
     |   or the right...                                                        |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Cannibalism?!: This move occurs when you've slain one of the two       |
     |   dragons. Basically, the remaining dragon will feed on the dead one,    |
     |   restoring 300 HP in three bites. Lay on the damage while you can, as   |
     |   his head remains relatively stationary.                                |
     |                                                                          |

     | - General Information: Well, it kind-of disappoints me that there is no  |
     |   dialog here, but oh well. Like most Castlevania games, as you fight    |
     |   Death, small circular scythes will constantly spawn and come at you.   |
     |   These are pretty darn easy to dodge but if you do get overwhelmed just |
     |   spin your whip for a second. I'll also tell you right away that Death  |
     |   has TWO forms. The first form just floats left to right, occasionally  |
     |   doing the first two attacks listed below. The second has the rest of   |
     |   the attacks. Note that scythes will appear constantly on BOTH forms.   |
     |   The second form is some sort of weird turtle/death hybrid, and is VERY |
     |   slow.                                                                  |
     |                                                                          |
     |   Unless you are a dodging master, probably the BEST combo to use for    |
     |   this fight is JUPITER + SERPENT, as the four ice balls will pretty     |
     |   much negate the scythes. Alternately you can use JUPITER + MANTICORE   |
     |   or just use a good DEF or ATK combo  if you don't care about the       |
     |   scythes. Crosses are a great subweapon to go with (as usual), but      |
     |   especially for the 2ND FORM, as it stays in one place for longer.      |
     |   Keep piling on the pain and avoid the attacks below to come out on     |
     |   top.                                                                   |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Bone Spears: Death will stop in mid-air (and the scythe attack will    |
     |   stop) while he shoots bone spears from his body. They travel side to   |
     |   side and diagonally, so either retreat a bit or get near him and duck. |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Energy Shot: Death will stop in mid-air and summon a big green energy  |
     |   ball in each hand before shooting them at you. These don't home in on  |
     |   you and are easily avoided by simply moving out of the way.            |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Gravity Spell: This is an "attack" the 2ND form will use. A magic seal |
     |   appears in front of Death, stopping you from jumping very high at all. |
     |   Death will more than likely follow this attack up with one of the two  |
     |   attacks below.                                                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Scythe Swipe: This attack occurs more frequently the closer you are to |
     |   Death. He will simply swipe his scythe claws at you, moving forward as |
     |   he goes.                                                               |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Ground Pound: The weird hybrid Death creature will stay in a single    |
     |   spot for a second, then raise upwards slowly. After raising up for a   |
     |   bit he will drop down, striking the ground. This will hurt you if you  |
     |   are standing on the ground, so JUMP! When used after the gravity spell |
     |   jumping is even trickier, so timing is more important. Not a very      |
     |   threatening move.                                                      |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |

     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: This battle arena is kick-ass! Before the fight   |
     |   Camilla will have a chat with Nathan, trying to turn him to the dark   |
     |   side. This arena is BIG for a reason: After your chat Camilla will     |
     |   turn into a HUGE monster after your chat and float back and forth. She |
     |   also has several area-spanning moves (see below). Not that you can     |
     |   ONLY hurt Camilla, NOT the skull she is riding on!                     |
     |                                                                          |
     |   Honestly, the BEST DSS combo you can use is Uranus + Thunderbird. Pull |
     |   off 3-4 of those and its over (even less with a good cross throw here  |
     |   and there). If that just isn't an option, the Jupiter + Manticore or   |
     |   Serpent option isn't bad as you can just forget about the purple       |
     |   balls and just focus on hurting Camilla. Due to how BIG she is crosses |
     |   are just plain awesome for this fight. Alternately, you can use a good |
     |   ATK combo and just dodge all her moves listed below.                   |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Bubbles: Camilla takes a cue from Death and CONSTANTLY spawns purple   |
     |   bubbles which make a straight line towards you. Easily negated with a  |
     |   spin of your whip or the Jupiter combos listed above.                  |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Dive: Camilla will do a dive attack in a "U" shape, trying to ram you. |
     |   Easily avoided by running away.                                        |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Thunderbolt: As Camilla floats from the left to the right she will     |
     |   shoot thunderbolts behind her, making it harder to get by her. Either  |
     |   use GREAT timing or just dash-jump over her from above if you need to  |
     |   get by.                                                                |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Wind Blades: Camilla will take a break from floating back and forth    |
     |   and raise up. Dozens of wind blades will spawn out of her wings,       |
     |   sweeping outwards covering a large area. Hard to avoid, just try to    |
     |   jump to a higher platform to avoid it.                                 |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Laser Beam: Camilla only does this attack when she's at the far right  |
     |   or left of an area. You will see the skull mouth open up and a screen  |
     |   spanning laser beam will fire off. You can either get behind her (and  |
     |   keep attacking) or duck to avoid it. If you're on the top of a         |
     |   platform, get as high as you can when the beam raises upwards.         |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |

     | - General Information: Well, isn't this a surprise! What, it isn't!? No  |
     |   matter, Hugh's jealousy has finally overcome him (with a little help   |
     |   from Dracula) and he is out for blood. Hugh's main weapon is a sword   |
     |   but he also has several special moves (see below). On top of that he   |
     |   has access to all of the games subweapons (which HE can carry all at   |
     |   once but Nathan can't figure out). This arena is actually Dracula's    |
     |   Throne Room, and has quite a bit of room above it. You can actually    |
     |   go up there and rest (use a healing DSS move, for example) if you      |
     |   wished. Once you damage Hugh enough, he will power up, increasing his  |
     |   stats and changing how his sub-weapons function. He gains a new move   |
     |   as well.                                                               |
     |                                                                          |
     |   By now you should know you favorite DSS combo. With most of the map    |
     |   uncovered, the Venus + Thunderbird combo does nearly 100 damage per    |
     |   hit. You could also use Uranus + Thunderbird for a good summon,        |
     |   or make him hurt with Jupiter + Salamander. I also found Saturn +      |
     |   Serpent to be good! And don't forget to chuck those crosses! Keep at   |
     |   him and you will emerge the victor!                                    |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Sword Swipe: What can I say about this one? This is Hugh's favorite    |
     |   move and the easiest to dodge! Make him pay whenever he uses it!       |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Sub-Weapons: Hugh has access to all of the games sub-weapons. Let me   |
     |   correct that, I've seen him use all of them but the stopwatch. I won't |
     |   list every sub-weapon here, but you of all people know how they work.  |
     |   Be careful! When he powers up at the half dead mark he will start to   |
     |   use MULTIPLE sub-weapons at once!                                      |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Energy Sword: Hugh will raise his sword to the heavens, making a much  |
     |   larger energy sword appear! He will then bring it crashing down on     |
     |   you! Throw a cross at him as he's standing still then retreat a safe   |
     |   distance away.                                                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Sword Blitz: Hugh will use this move if there is an appreciable amount |
     |   of distance between the two of you. He will essentially charge at you  |
     |   with his sword at a high speed. Jump to avoid it and try to whip him   |
     |   on the way down.                                                       |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Sword Flames: Hugh will pause for a moment, you'll see his sword light |
     |   up, then he will plunge it into the ground. Wings of flames will       |
     |   erupt around him. This is an area attack. Retreat a short distance     |
     |   away and hit him with a cross.                                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Spirit Swords: Hugh will only do this move when he is powered up. He   |
     |   will raise his sword to the heavens and summon several spirit swords.  |
     |   these swords will try to home in on you. Each one that hits you will   |
     |   restore a (SMALL) portion of Hugh's HP.                                |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |

     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: Time to take on the big boss. This room is fairly |
     |   small and Dracula, in true Castlevania fashion, will be warping        |
     |   around. Do your best to make sure he doesn't corner you with his       |
     |   warping (stay in the middle of the room and react from there). To be   |
     |   quite honest, this fight is extremely simple, just check out his       |
     |   attacks below and keep laying on the pain.                             |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Electric Bats: Dracula will pull back his robe and a bunch of          |
     |   electric bats will come out! The move in a fairly random (but almost   |
     |   predictable) pattern. Get back and jump/duck to avoid them.            |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Fire Bats: Dracula will pull back his robe and three fire bats will    |
     |   come out. This one is super easy to dodge, just double jump over them  |
     |   and keep whipping Dracula.                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Ice Bats: Dracula will pull back his robe and fire two ice bats at     |
     |   you. Very easy to double jump over.                                    |
     |                                                                          |

     |                                                                          |
     | My Level: 47                                                             |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - General Information: The background in this area is quite awesome, and |
     |   the area itself is HUGE. There are also two platforms in this area,    |
     |   which you will need as Dracula is HUGE!                                |
     |                                                                          |
     |   Dracula will teleport in this area as well. If you've been collecting  |
     |   all the stat increases you will have quite a bit of MP, so you could   |
     |   just use the thunderbird summon throughout the fight. It's also very   |
     |   possible to not use any card combos and just avoid his attacks.        |
     |   You need to whip the eye in the center of his chest to damage him.     |
     |   Halfway into the battle Dracula will begin to flash wildly. During     |
     |   this phase he will attempt to run into you with his body a few times   |
     |   before appearing as a large eyeball surrounded by bats. Read the       |
     |   attacks below, don't be shy about using your supplies, and keep on     |
     |   damaging him and you'll be ok.                                         |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Laser Beams: Dracula will stretch out his hand and laser beams will    |
     |   come out of his shoulder mouths and hit the ground. Waves of fire will |
     |   follow, so retreat of get up and out of the way.                       |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Poison Bubbles: Dracula will stop and stay still for a bit, releasing  |
     |   dozens of poison bubbles. It's not a bad idea to equip something like  |
     |   Jupiter + Manticore or Jupiter + Serpent for this attack to keep       |
     |   yourself safe.                                                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Meteor Shower: Dracula will summon a meteor shower! This is one of the |
     |   more damaging attacks, and is hard to dodge as well. Stay close to the |
     |   ground double jump/duck to avoid the meteors while hurting Dracula.    |
     |                                                                          |
     | - Rush Attack: Dracula will do this move when his body is invincible and |
     |   the eyeball surrounded by bats is appearing. Basically what he is      |
     |   trying to do is ram you. The best way to avoid this now that you know  |
     |   it is coming is to dash away from him, double jump, then use the ROC   |
     |   WING at the top of your jump. Dracula will follow you upwards but will |
     |   totally lose you when you shoot straight up. Repeat this until the eye |
     |   and bats shows up, then attack however you want (Thunderbird Summon!). |
     |                                                                          |
     |                                                                          |

    Here is a list of every monster in the game, their experience, what items
    they drop, and where they can be found at.
    
    The location is a general idea of where you can find the monster at, because
    as you know each of these areas is HUGE. Also, the further you progress into
    the game, the more you will notice that certain weaker monster are taken out
    of an area and new monsters are appearing.
    
    
    Also note that this list is in alphabetical order.

            Item crush attack is unleashed.
    
            MP: 4 / Time.
    
    This card combo is special. The item crush attack you unleash is, of course,
    based on your SUB WEAPON that you have equipped at the time. Below is the list
    of sub-weapons and what this card combo will do with them. Note that HEARTS
    will also be used, so I'll list that as well:
    
    
       Dagger:
    
         Nathan starts to fire off daggers like crazy, like a machine gun,
         straight ahead of him. 
    
         Cost: 20 Hearts
    
    
       Axe:
    
         Nathan floats up in the air and sends several axes flying around him,
         spreading out in a circle.
    
         Cost: 8 Hearts
    
    
       Holy Water:
    
         Nathan will fill the screen with holy water rain! You can walk around
         and do stuff while its raining.
    
         Cost: 20 Hearts
    
    
       Cross:
    
         Nathan floats up in the area as several crosses swirl around him as they
         head upwards.
    
         Cost: 15 Hearts
    
    
       Stop Watch:
    
         Instead of a single stop watch, Nathan throws FOUR stopwatches in the
         air. This attack slows even the FASTEST enemies down (i.e. the Skeleton
         Medalist).
    
         Cost: 40 Hearts
    
    
    That is all of the game's item crashes. Neat, huh?!

            Sub-weapons use mind power rather than hearts.

            Walking and dash speed are increased.

    =================================================================[CotM-ITM]===
    
    
    Here is a list of every item you can find in the game and its description.
    Note that these items all recover you HP, MP, Hearts, or status in some way.
    I was originally going to list who dropped what, but many of these items are
    dropped by MULTIPLE enemies throughout the game. You are better off doing a
    " CTRL + F " on the item you're looking for and finding it in the guides
    BESTIARY.

    =================================================================[CotM-ARM]===
    
    
    Here is a list of all the armor you can find in the game, what drops it, and
    the stats it affects.
    
    Note that MOST of the LOWER LEVEL armor is dropped by MULTIPLE enemies. I'm
    only going to list a SINGLE example for it though, so if you want a more
    in-depth look, use " CTRL + F " to find your item in the BESTIARY. Also note
    that the HIGHER LEVEL armor usually only has a single monster that drops it.
    
    Also, as I'm sure you are aware, the "Shinning Armor" is the ONLY piece of
    armor in the game (and the only piece of equipment as well) that is NOT
    dropped by any enemy as it is found at the end of the Battle Arena.
    
    
    This list is in alphabetical order.

    =================================================================[CotM-EXT]===
    
    
    Here's all the 'secrets' and extra things you can do in the game.
    
    
    
    ====================
    Alternate Play Modes
    ====================
    
    Upon beating the game you will be given a name code to enter at the name
    screen: 'Fireball'. Circle of the Moon actually has MANY different play modes
    that you can try out, but you have to beat the game with the previous mode to
    unlock them. I just wish they let you play through as Hugh, but alas. Anyway,
    here are the play modes that you can unlock and the general idea behind them:
    
    
    
       MAGICIAN MODE
       =============
    
       Requirement: Beat the game.
    
         Just like it sounds, Magician Mode gives Nathan ALL of the DSS cards
         right from the get-go and drastically boosts your intelligence and MP.
         It also skewers your stats so that you gain more MP every level up
         instead of other stats, like HP. The name you enter here is 'Fireball'.
    
    
    
       FIGHTER MODE
       ============
    
       Requirement: Beat the game w/Magician Mode.
    
         Nothing fancy here: you are STRONG. Your stats are once again skewered
         towards bigger HP and STR gains. However you don't get ANY DSS cards in
         this mode. The name you enter here is 'Gradius'.
    
    
    
       SHOOTER MODE
       ============
    
       Requirement: Beat the game w/Magician and Fighter Modes.
    
         This mode powers up all of your sub-weapons and gives you a LOT of
         hearts. It's not called shooter for nothing! I've also read (but
         havent' confirmed) that you can acquire a homing dagger if you pick
         up two daggers in a row. The name you enter here is 'Crossbow'.
    
    
    
       THIEF MODE
       ==========
    
       Requirement: Beat the game w/Magician, Fighter, and Shooter Modes.
    
         You start the game like normal but with lower stats. However, in this
         mode you have astronomically high LUCK. Your stats are skewered to give
         you even more luck when you level up too! The name you enter here is
         'Dagger'.
    
    
    
    ========================
    Black Dog + Pluto Secret
    ========================
    
    As you probably know if you've played around with this combo, by using these
    cards you transform into a fragile skeleton (who can throw a GIANT bone every
    now and again for MAJOR damage). However, did you know that if you equip the
    BEAR RING while using this combo that you can transform into a cartoon bear!?
    Crazy, huh? It is also very fragile (like the skeleton) but is fun to play
    around with. Check it out!
    
    
    ==============
    Hidden Enemies
    ==============
    
    There are several enemies throughout the game that I would consider 'Hidden'.
    Many of them only appear after certain boss fights (such as after Death is
    defeated, or after Camilla is defeated), and many of them drop excellent
    items. Here's a short list of the enemies I'm talking about.
    
    
    
       Lilim
       =====
    
    This enemy is in one of the HIDDEN ROOMS in the Machine Tower. I believe she
    appears sometime after Death is defeated (but I may be wrong, it may be after
    Camilla is defeated). Her rare drop is the Dark Armor, which is some of the
    best armor until the Shinning Armor.
    
    
       Lilith
       ======
    
    This enemy is in one of the HIDDEN ROOMS in the Underground Warehouse. I
    believe she appears after Camilla is defeated. She is notable for two things:
    the fact that she gives you 20,000 PER KILL (which is awesome) and that her
    rare drop is the Sage Robe, which gives a huge bonus to INT.
    
    
       Mimic Candle
       ============
    
    This is one of the three candle enemies. Unlike the other two, this one
    doesn't drop a DSS card. Instead it drops the Gambler Armband, which increases
    LUCK by 100 (and is a big help in drop rates). However, the Mimic Candle is
    a LOT stronger than the other candles. I would recommend using the stop watch
    item crash or a powered-up summon to take it out. The Mimic Candle is found
    in the Audience Room, in the room with all the Skeleton Atheletes.
    
    
       Nightmare
       =========
    
    This enemy is in one of the HIDDEN ROOMS in the Outer Wall section (near
    where you first entered this section). I believe she appears after Death is
    defeated (but I may be wrong, it may be after the Zombie Dragon is defeated).
    She drops the Needle Armor, a decent set of armor but is eclipsed by other
    pieces.
    
    
       Trick Candle
       ============
    
    You're probably familiar with this candle if you've got all the DSS cards.
    This candle is located in the CEREBUS BOSS ROOM during the later part of the
    game (after Camilla is defeated). Thankfully the candle isn't too hard to kill
    and it rewards the PLUTO CARD as its rare drop.
    
    
       Scary Candle
       ============
    
    Another candle you're probably familiar with. This candle is located in the
    IRON GOLEM BOSS ROOM during the later part of the game (after Camilla is
    defeated). Thankfully the candle isn't too hard to kill and it rewards the
    URANUS CARD as its rare drop.
    
    
       Skeleton Medalist
       =================
    
    One of the hardest enemies to kill, the Skeleton Medalist is located in the
    HIDDEN ROOM during the drop into the catacombs. In fact, its above that
    hidden room in another hidden room! What makes this guy so hard to kill is
    that he takes off sprinting to the left when you come in, committing suicide
    by ramming into the left-hand wall.
    
    What you need to do is use the STOP WATCH item crash before you enter his
    room to give you time to get to him. As you kill him you will probably get
    hundreds of TOY RINGS (which are worthless) but if you're lucky he will drop
    the BEAR RING, which you need if you want to play as a bear (see the Black
    Dog + Pluto section for more info).
    
    
    =====================
    Power Up Your Summons
    =====================
    
    Do your summon as normal, except go to the menu as soon as you use it. Now
    from here, make your DSS combo say MARS + BLACK DOG (or anything else with
    higher STR) and your summon will do more damage than usual! Extremely helpful
    at times.
    
    
    ===========================
    Use DSS in the Battle Arena
    ===========================
    
    Fairly simple to do. As you know, your magic drains in the battle arena since
    DSS Combos are not allowed in there. However, you can use this to your
    advantage. First, pick a room where you want to use a combo or summon (the
    Minator room is highly recommended) and fill up your MP with items. Then pick
    a summon or card combo. As soon as you exit the menu, your magic will start to
    drain, so pull off the summon or combo as fast as you can and it will work!

    Version 1.0: June 6th - July 6th 2011
    
    Wow, I can't believe I actually wrote this guide SO long after this game has
    been released. I still believe it's a GREAT game though, and deserves more
    attention. Note that I actually have NO idea when I actually started this
    guide, so "June 6th" is just a guess. I also didn't originally have a version
    history, but knowing when I did things is always nice.
    
    
    Version 1.1: December 10th 2011
    
    Fixed a HUGE mistake in the DRACULA boss section, which was the result of a
    blown copy and paste job... whoops! Caught it randomly, too. Anyways, it is
    fixed now. I also went through and spell-checked the guide. Yes, Zy, less
    than 1%.

    BIG THANKS to SNKUPO. The whole reason this guide is here is the inspiration
    he gave me by looking at his 'Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow' guide. I borrowed
    a LOT of his formatting from that guide, which helped to give you THIS guide.
    Thanks for letting me do that, snkupo. I hope what you find here does your
    formatting justice.

    Johnathan L. Sawyer for the GBA artwork and being a good motivator! This
    guy is one of the most meticulous faqers I've seen work.

    I'd also like to thank the vaious fan websites out there (Castlevania Dungeon,
    Castlevania Crypt) for being an excellent point of reference for enemies and
    what they drop. I spent hours verifying everything, but just having that
    reference no doubt saved me even more hours.
    
    Also a big thanks to gamefaqs member 'Zeric', who made an AWESOME map of the
    castle itself which was a huge help to me. I remember when I was younger going
    throughout the entire castle looking for hidden rooms. Zeric made sure that
    wasn't going to happen twice!
    
    
    Thanks to all my fans and readers! I wouldn't do this without your guy's
    support! Every thank you email keeps me going!
    
    Also a big thanks to Konami for such a wonderful series. Obviously none of
    this would be here without them!
    
    
    Most of all, thanks to my family:
    
       My wife, for giving me the time. Thanks a ton baby!
    
       My daughter, for being who you are! I love you SO much!
