Ectoplasm is a substance left by the corpses of men who have regrets. It is usually depicted as a colored blob with several human faces formed within it (similar to Dracula's second form in Dracula's Curse). Touching it usually curses the player. It floats around the air slowly and can take several hits to destroy. Striking it once without killing it usually causes it to speed up momentarily.

OriginsEdit

Ectoplasm - 01

Eva Carrière with fake ectoplasm (1912)

Ectoplasm (from the Greek ektos, meaning "outside", and plasma, meaning "something formed or molded") is a term coined by Charles Richet to denote a substance or spiritual energy "exteriorized" by physical mediums and said to be associated with the formation of spirits. It is considered to be a hoax, made from cheesecloth, gauze or other natural substances.

Ectoplasm is said to be formed by physical mediums when in a trance state. This material is excreted as a gauze-like substance from orifices on the medium's body and spiritual entities are said to drape this substance over their nonphysical body, enabling them to interact in the physical world. Some accounts claim that ectoplasm begins clear and almost invisible, but darkens and becomes visible, as the psychic energy becomes stronger. Still other accounts state that in extreme cases ectoplasm will develop a strong odor.

General informationEdit

The Ectoplasm made its first appearance in Super Castlevania IV, although it lacks its characteristic human faces in that version, and instead displayed several colors which changed rapidly. When it is destroyed after sustaining three hits, it expands out into a horizontal bar and disappears.

In Curse of Darkness, Ectoplasms are found in the Garibaldi Temple and several other places. It drops Uncurses and if it touches Hector while its color changes to violet, he will be cursed, although this is also the moment when it opens its stealing window.

TriviaEdit

  • While there is an Ectoplasm enemy in Circle of the Moon, which comes in the form of a floating head that materializes out of thin air and homes toward the hero, this game's depiction of Legion has more in common with those Ectoplasms appearing in most games, being a purple amalgamation of various heads which floats slowly and inflicts Curse status upon contact.
