The Red Smasher is the eldest of the Giant brothers, a tall and thin armoredknight clad in a shade of orange armor. He wields a pair of huge daggers which he uses for both high and low simultaneous attacks, and which knock the player back.
When he dies, he falls to his knees and throws one of his daggers as a last-ditch attack before shattering to pieces. However, unless playing on Hard Mode in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, the dagger thrown is harmless and can pass straight through the player without any ill effects.
He is usually accompanied by his younger sibling, the Hammer Shaker.
