An Aura Blast can be one of several types of spells appearing in many Castlevania games. It has been portrayed either as a Weapon Skill, a Dual Crush, or an Innocent Devil's ability. When cast, it damages surrounding enemies with an aura attack.
Game specific informationEdit
The Aura Blast is the default ability a Battle-Type Innocent Devil is born with. When cast, the I.D. emanates an aura force from its current position which deals low damage to all surrounding enemies and also neutralizes all projectiles. It's one of the best abilities in the game, as the damage it deals is usually enough to kill or knock down most enemies, making it extremely useful in heavy crowded areas. The blast also has a wide area of effect and can easily damage airborne enemies (Harpies, White Dragons, etc.). At a low cost of only 15 MP, it can be cast repeatedly, and since most enemies will leave Hearts behind after slain, MP replenishment is generally not an issue. It's also very useful for subduing heavier enemies, as an aura blast will stagger them and cancel all of their attacks, allowing Hector to jump in and inflict a few free hits.
It can also be used strategically, as it can be cast when the Battle-Type is far away from Hector and has enemies surrounding it. If Hector suddenly needs to cast an aura blast near him, he can just perform a Chain Attack on a nearby enemy to make the I.D. warp to his current location.
Aura Blast is a Dual Crush available in Harmony of Despair. It's performed when Alucard, Soma Cruz or Maria performs a Dual Crush with another version of themselves. It's also the default attack for Maria when pairing with any characters who do not have their own signature dual crushes (that is, all male characters). Energy flies across the area damaging all enemies in its vicinity.
