Burning Mode is a special self-defense capability that Sonia Belmont possesses in Castlevania Legends. It is activated by pressing A and B at the same time. While in this mode, she becomes invulnerable to enemy attacks, damages other enemies when she touches them, and her attack strength is doubled. She can move faster, jump further, and walk over spikes while in this mode, enabling her to reach areas she could not otherwise. While in this mode, she burns her Burning Gauge over time. It is not possible to exit burning mode until the Burning Gauge is empty. Once this gauge is depleted, she returns to normal and is not able to enter burning mode again. The Burning Gauge is fully replenished only when she starts a new level or a new life. This is somewhat similar in concept to Cornell's wolf transformation, which increases his attack power, but continuously drain Hearts until he has no hearts left.
