Soma Cruz has several different forms which cause him to morph into a large monster and rush forward. He obtains them from guardian souls captured from enemies, which grant him the form of that enemy or a similar one (Manticore, Curly and Devil in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow; and Barbariccia and Valkyrie in Dawn of Sorrow). These forms look very different from each other but function identically. Any one of these forms is necessary to access the Forbidden Area in Aria of Sorrow. They consume a very large amount of MP and all have a significant warm up period of time before the attack actually starts. Once he transforms, Soma will automatically start to charge forward, impervious to all forms of damage and dealing continuous heavy damage to all who dare to cross his path, becoming nearly unstoppable while he still has MP.

Game specific informationEdit

Castlevania: Aria of SorrowEdit

The trick to access the Forbidden Area is to find the waterfall in the Underground Reservoir, equip the Undine enchanted soul to be able to walk on the water's surface, and then equip and activate either the Curly, Manticore or Devil soul to dash through the waterfall. The player will receive the Eversing armor along the way. On the other side is the door leading to the area. Two items, the valuable Joyeuse and the most useful weapon in the game, the Claimh Solais, can be found in this area.

  • In Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, activating one of these souls on certain platforms (such as the top of the separated rooms in Floating Garden, and the top left platform in the Chapel, under the Axe Armor), will send Soma backward. Doing it at the right place while facing the right direction (away from walls) will allow him to go to up until then inaccessible parts of the room (e.g.: outside of the building in Chapel). As a result, Soma can use non-standard ways to exit a room, which will allow him to warp to other locations not intended to be visited at that moment, such as the Study, Clock Tower and Chaotic Realm.
