Sickles are one of Death's main attacks. It consists in summoning little sickles that float in the air to attack the hero. Death uses this attack in every Castlevania game. In Aria of Sorrow and Dawn of Sorrow, Soma Cruz can absorb Death's soul, allowing him the ability to unleash sickles on his enemies. In Curse of Darkness, Hector can forge Death's Scythe, which can launch sickles during a special attack.
