|This page is about the Dual Crush spell. For the Belnades' attack, see Holy Lightning.|
The Thunder Cross (called Holy Lightning in the Western release of Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin) is a Dual Crush attack which involves an "X" shaped lightning to form between the partners' hands. The lightning extends across the screen and rotates slowly, dealing multiple Lightning-based hits to all enemies on the screen.
Game specific informationEdit
Holy Lightning first appeared in Portrait of Ruin as a Dual Crush between Jonathan Morris and Charlotte Aulin, and it is the second Dual Crush expected for the player to collect (the first being Rush), appearing in one of the rooms of the first portrait they have access to. It costs 100 MP to cast, and while this may seem quite expensive at the beginning (allowing no more than one or two continuous casts), as the player progresses through the game and their MP pool increases, the spell becomes more affordable, allowing them to clear heavily populated rooms continuously or severely damage larger enemies.
In Harmony of Despair, Thunder Cross is the Dual Crush that is used whenever a holy whip-wielding warrior (Jonathan, Julius or Richter) crushes with a female mage (Charlotte, Yoko or Shanoa). An exception to this rule is when Jonathan and Charlotte crush together, which results in them performing 1,000 Blades instead.
