Holy Lightning Intro

A Dual Crush (also known as Dual Crash) is a very powerful attack involving two casters, where they combine their powers to cast a powerful spell. Dual Crushes appear in two games: Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin and Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. They are the most powerful type of attack in both games they appear in.

The primary casters are Jonathan Morris and Charlotte Aulin, although in Harmony of Despair the rest of the characters are also capable of casting a Dual Crush.

Dual CrushesEdit

Castlevania: Portrait of RuinEdit

Portrait of Ruin - The Throne Room - 03

Before executing a Dual Crush

In order to unlock a Dual Crush, the player must first obtain them from specific locations of the various maps, and equip them. Since the duo have separate equipment screens, the player can equip two different Dual Crushes, one to use while controlling Jonathan, and another while controlling Charlotte. Portraits of Jonathan and Charlotte will then be shown on the screen before execution. Any damage absorbed by either of the two will interrupt the spell.

The MP bar will flash red and green if a Dual Crush can already be activated given the current MP the player has. Each Dual Crush must wait a five seconds cooldown time between casts.

  • Rush - A basic Dual Crush. Jonathan and Charlotte will quickly strike in front of them multiple times.
  • Holy Lightning - Summons lightning in the shape of a cross.
  • Axe Bomber - An attack from both sides.
  • 1,000 Blades - One of the most useful attacks. Charlotte grants Jonathan the necessary speed to rapidly throw daggers forward. Unlike the rest of the Dual Crushes, however, it can be interrupted by taking damage.
  • Volcano - Summons a volcano. Rocks will erupt from the volcano and fly down the edges of the screen.
  • Meteor - Summons a massive meteor that rolls down the screen and does massive damage to everything on screen.
  • Grand Cruz - The well known Grand Cross attack. Does massive damage to nearby targets, but no effect on distant opponents.
  • Divine Storm - An attack most commonly known for its use by Richter. The duo will summon holy water to rain down on the screen and damage everything.
  • Dark Gate - A less useful attack that strikes above and below the player. Two immense green demon's hands will appear and pull open an massive gate, dealing heavy damage. However, it suffers due to its element: Dark.
  • Greatest Five - The most powerful of the Dual Crushes in the game. The duo will pause the flow of time and summon the five greatest Belmonts to attack, causing Holy damage to everything on screen. This is easily capable of dealing thousands of points of damage at higher levels.
