Maxim Kischine

Maxim Mode is the first alternate mode in Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance. The player controls Maxim Kischine in this mode.

How to unlockEdit

Maxim Mode becomes available after beating the game as Juste with any ending, by entering "MAXIM" as the name in the save slot.


Maxim moves about twice as fast as Juste, but dodges at about the same speed. His slides are also about twice as long as Juste's.

Maxim's standard attack is a quick forward stab with his Stellar Sword. His down attack is a kick with his foot, and he has one sub-weapon that he starts with, the Throwing Star Boomerang, where he throws a star in a loop in front of him.

All areas are available at the start of the game, except for the final area (the player still has to collect Dracula's remains). The Start menu is unavailable, and pressing START will simply pause the game. Due to a lack of a Start menu, Maxim cannot equip or use any items, and the player cannot observe his level, experience points, or which remains he has found.

Maxim doesn't have the high jump ability, but instead can triple jump (as opposed to Juste's double jump) and use a somersault attack by pressing Up + Jump in midair, where he twirls through the air to gain height. This attack costs MP.
