1,000 Blades (also called Thousand Dagger or Thousand Edge) is a powerful attack involving the throwing of many daggers extremely fast. It first appeared as an Item Crash for Richter Belmont for the Dagger sub-weapon. He is able to perform this move in Rondo of Blood, Dracula X, Symphony of the Night and in The Dracula X Chronicles.

It could later be performed by Nathan Graves with the dagger sub-weapon, when the Pluto + Salamander cards combination was in effect. Juste Belmont could perform the move too by combining his dagger with the Wind Book.

1,000 Blades first appeared as a Dual Crush in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, where it could be performed by Jonathan Morris and Charlotte Aulin. Jonathan was able to launch fifty blades at enemies thanks to Charlotte's magic. In Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, it became this pair's signature Dual Crush, as no other character could perform a similar move which required the use of two characters.

In Castlevania Judgment, Grant Danasty is able to perform this attack as one of his Expansion moves.
