Simon Belmont just wants to know if he is a good fighter and not just a false power brought on by the whip. To prove it, he goes after Trevor, the first man to wield the Vampire Killer in battle against the Lord of Darkness, Dracula.
Simon is a good fighter. Decent combos and a good amount of strength. My favorite combo is: Regular Special Attack Button (for follow up) Jump Cancel Aerial Special I don't know why. It just looks awesome.
