For other uses, see Magic Book (disambiguation).

The Magic Book is an enemy in the Castlevania series. They are tomes containing the secrets of magic, weaponry or literature. They can be used by a hero to summon some kind of magical effect, weapon or creature out of its pages. They can also be enemies that move on their own and which can summon those objects as well.

General informationEdit

The first spellbooks found in Castlevania were those used by the Belnades family and their relatives. Sypha Belnades can use different spellbooks to perform either Fire, Ice or Thunder spells as sub-weapons in Dracula's Curse. Juste Belmont can use them to power up his sub-weaponry and give them an elemental effect. Charlotte Aulin can use them to summon different kinds of weapons or creatures as her primary means of attack. Little Witch uses them as a blunt object which she can swing around as her primary weapon.

Self-propelled floating enemy books first appeared in Super Castlevania IV, which could "flap" their pages to hover over the ground and then make swooping attacks on Simon. The Spellbooks from Symphony of the Night move slowly off of their shelves and open their pages to reveal a skull. Magic Tomes will summon weapons instead.

A Super Castlevania IV-like spellbook can also be found on the Ouija Table that makes up the Poltergeist enemy in Circle of the Moon.
