Saturn-Maria-Drop-Kick

Older Maria in Symphony of the Night.

Maria Renard was unplayable in the original PSX version of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. She then became playable in the Sega Saturn edition of that game, which is only available in Japan. This version of her is different than the version that would later be available in the Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles version of the game, which played more like her original Castlevania: Rondo of Blood incarnation. Maria also needs to be fought as a Boss during Alucard's quest in order to receive the Holy Glasses.


MovementsEdit

Maria does not have a weapon equipped. Many of her attacks involve kicking an enemy.

SpellsEdit

Maria's primary spell is a chargeable energy ball, which can be unleashed at the push of a button. While Maria does not use her traditional Holy Beasts as sub-weapons in this game, she is able to summon them through magic spells. Each beast has a different spell. These spells consume MP.

Sub-WeaponsEdit

Maria is able to use the same sub-weapons in a way similar to Richter. Most of her sub-weapons only require one heart, but she fires several sub-weapons at once for some subweapons, each costing a heart. Maria cannot item crash sub-weapons. She starts the game with the ability to hold 999 hearts.

ItemsEdit

Maria is able to collect Small Hearts and Large Hearts. Most items that Alucard could collect are replaced with Small Hearts that can be repeatedly collected. Life Vessels restore all life and does increase life capacity, although it is not readily apparent from the health bar on the side of the screen that it did so. Heart Vessels increase Hearts by 30, but do not increase Heart capacity. Gold can be collected, but has no effect, as the Master Librarian ignores Maria.
