Piercing is a damage type found in the Castlevania series. It involves taking a bladed item and thrusting it forward in a kind of jab instead of swinging with it, in an attempt to pierce through the defenses of an enemy.

Spears are the most common weapon associated with this type of damage; however, these are sometimes associated with Slash instead whenever the Piercing damage type is not made available in a game.

Game specific informationEdit

Castlevania: Dawn of SorrowEdit

Dawn of Sorrow is the only game that distinguishes between Piercing and Slashing attacks. Any weapon that thrusts its sharp pointed tip into an enemy, deals piercing damage. This includes knives, rapiers, and spears. Guns can deal piercing damage too, since shooting is considered piercing.
