The following is a list of effects of all 100 possible DSS Combinations in Castlevania: Circle of the Moon.

MercuryEdit

These consist of imbuing the Hunter Whip with elemental power.

Attribute Card Effect Description
Salamander card
Salamander
Fire Whip

"Fire whip to attack enemies."

Effect: Increases Nathan's STR by 5% and deals Fire damage. If a monster is very close to Nathan, it suffers roughly 50% more damage. 6 MP per use.

Serpent card
Serpent
Ice Whip

"Ice whip. Frozen enemies can be used as platforms."

Effect: This will decrease Nathan's STR by 29% and lessen the whip's range, but in return, his attack speed is noticeably increased. The whip deals Ice damage while this combo is in effect. Once a monster takes a hit that would otherwise kill it, it becomes frozen, and it can be stood upon as a platform if desired. Otherwise, Nathan simply needs to hit the monster one more time to kill it. This affliction is not permanent, however, and the monster will break after a few seconds. 2 MP per use.

Mandragora card
Mandragora
Whip of Thorns

"Whip of Thorns to attack enemies."

Effect: Increases Nathan's STR by 10% and deals Plant damage. 6 MP per use.

Golem card
Golem
Earth Whip

"Earth whip to attack distant enemies."

Effect: Increases the whip's range, but attacks slower. Deals Earth damage. 8 MP per use.

Cockatrice card
Cockatrice
Stone Whip

"Stone Whip. Enemies turned to stone can be used as platforms."

Effect: Increases Nathan's STR by 10% and deals Stone damage, but slightly slows his attack speed. Once a monster takes a hit that would otherwise kill it, it becomes petrified, and it can be stood upon as a platform if desired. Otherwise, Nathan simply needs to hit the monster one more time to kill it. Whatever the situation calls for, however, it must be done quickly; if Nathan is not quick enough, the monster will break free of its affliction. 6 MP per use.

Manticore card
Manticore
Poison Whip

"Poison whip that will release a mist of poison."

Effect: Decreases Nathan's STR by 11% and deals Poison damage. The whip is swung upward, and the ensuing clouds of poison deal minor damage for a few seconds. 6 MP per use.

Griffon card
Griffin
Wind Whip

"Wind whip. Continuous attack will occur while attack is held."

Effect: Decreases Nathan's STR by 13% and deals Wind damage. When the whip is held out, it strikes constantly instead of being spun around. 10 MP per use.

Thunderbird card
Thunderbird
Electric Whip

"Electric whip. Will electrocute while attack is held."

Effect: When the whip is held out, it deals constant Electric damage instead of being spun. The damage dealt from keeping the whip out weakens the longer it is held out, however. 10 MP per use. In addition, the Hunter's Whip is slightly faster and has a slightly longer reach.

Unicorn card
Unicorn
Holy Whip

"Holy whip. Health is replenished with each swing of the whip."

Thunderbird card
Thunderbird
Vulnerability

"You will be sent flying when damaged, but take 1/2 damage."

Effect: Every attack sends Nathan flying, but all damage taken is reduced by half. As an overwhelming number of attacks in the game already send Nathan flying anyways, this combination is perhaps the easiest way to double his Defense. 4 MP per second.

Unicorn card
Unicorn
Circular Barrier

"A circular barrier will surround you."

Effect: A circular shield surrounds Nathan and protects him from every side (albeit to a limited extent from below), dealing Holy damage to anything it comes in contact with. 8 MP per second.

Actually gives him the Poison status (it goes away as soon as the card combo is deactivated, but will simply return immediately upon returning to gameplay if cured with an Antidote). 8 MP per second.

MarsEdit

All of the Mars effects change the Hunter Whip into a different element-infused weapon. Note that while any of the following card combinations are in effect, Nathan may not brandish his whip if the attack button is held down.

Attribute Card Effect Description
Salamander card
Salamander
Fire Sword

"Attack with a fire sword."

Mandragora card

Rose Sword

"Attack with a rose sword."

Effect: Increases Nathan's STR by 12% and deals Plant damage. The attack itself flings petals, which deal 20% of the damage that the strike would have done, at the benefit of slightly increasing range. The sword's arc can attack overhead. 10 MP per use.

Golem card
Golem
Massive Hammer

"Attack with a massive hammer. Causes earthquakes."

Effect: Swung overhead, it causes minor damage to any enemy on the ground where you strike. The hammerhead can deal direct damage equivalent to the whip during any part of the swing, though the distance required is extremely precise; hitting an enemy with the shaft of the hammer does nothing. Rather slow attack speed. 4 MP per use.

Cockatrice card
Cockatrice
Tonfers

Effect: Increases Nathan's STR by 22% and deals Stone damage. Swung straight forward, with a hitbox similar to the whip but a slightly faster attack speed. Can petrify enemies. 12 MP per use.

Griffon card
Griffin
Sword Draw

"Sword Draw. Holding attack longer will inflict more damage."

Effect: Statwise, it increases Nathan's STR by 41%. However, the longer the button is held, the more damage it deals (and the further its range extends). After roughly three seconds, it is fully charged and deals roughly 2 times Nathan's whip damage. 16 MP per use.

Thunderbird card
Thunderbird
Martial Arts

"Martial Arts. Hold attack to perform combinations."

Effect: Consists of two jabs, a punch from the other hand, then a kick. The two initial punches deal half Nathan's normal whip damage, the offhand punch deals normal, then the kick deals twice the normal whip damage. Extremely fast attack speed (though there is some cooldown between combos,) but lacking in range. 16 MP per use (each part of the combo counts as a separate use).

Unicorn card
Unicorn
Holy Sword

"Attack with a holy sword."

Effect: Increases Nathan's STR by 73%, and deals Holy damage. An extremely long sword that strikes straight ahead with no arc and a very fast attack speed. The sword is positioned behind Nathan during the attack's start-up time, doing damage to enemies in the way just as if they were hit by the main attack. 32 MP per use.

Black Dog card
Black Dog
Gun

"Attack with a gun."

Effect: Increases Nathan's STR by 100%. Nathan draws a pistol and fires straight ahead. The opening and ending delay are very significant, however. 32 MP per use.

TriviaEdit

  • The STR bonus or penalty from the DSS system will not affect Nathan's sub-weapon damage.
  • Due to its activation process, changing DSS before complete activation will allow Nathan to use the new combination without disabling its effect. Therefore, Nathan will be able to use all DSS combinations once he get one Attribute Card and one Action Card.
  • Since DSS can't be deactivated during summoning, changing the combination into the one with STR bonus such as Mars + Black Dog can be used to increase the power of the summon. Using this method will deactivate the DSS once the summoning is finished.
