Origins

The Bible[1], also known as the Holy Book[2] or the Grimoire[3] (魔法の書 Mahō no Syo), is an item in Castlevania. It first appeared in Vampire Killer, where a White Bible would cause the Old Crone to reduce her prices, while a Black Bible would cause her to increase them instead. In later games, it appeared as a sub-weapon which releases an animated Bible moving around the screen, using words to exorcise evil.

OverviewEdit

The Bible, used as a sub-weapon, generally attacks in one of two forms:

  1. Spiraling from its caster outward, while its pages deal Holy damage.
  2. Spinning around the character, dealing a small amount of Holy damage to nearby enemies.

As the Bible is a sub-weapon, an Item Crash can also be performed with it. Richter Belmont has two types of Item Crashes, while Juste has five:
