Some characters are able to brandish the Vampire Killer whip. After the player has performed a standard attack, if the [ATTACK] button continues to be held, the whip will go limp. Moving the directional pad will cause the whip to limply move in that direction, causing a small amount of damage to foes or blocking a projectile attack. Simon Belmont in Super Castlevania IV was the first character to be able to perform this move. Richter Belmont was able to use the attack starting in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and it has remained the norm rather than the exception for the whip in modern-style 2D games ever since.

In Circle of the Moon, the whip is spun instead of going limp.
