During the Critical Art for most Axe-type weapons, the player will High Jump straight up to the top of the screen, invulnerable while phasing through any obstacles, and then come crashing down with the Axe. This can be performed by both Soma Cruz (Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow and Castlevania: Harmony of Despair) and Jonathan Morris (Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin). The only weapon classified as an "Axe" that does not use this critical art in the games it appears in is Death's Scythe, as well as the Mace and Morning Star in Portrait of Ruin since they were classified as Hammers in Dawn of Sorrow.
