For the Lament of Innocence item, see Curtain Time Bell.

The Bell is a hidden item found in the Castlevania series. It's worth many points. It has no function other than to collect.


The Bell is a famous power-up item from the TwinBee series, which has also made its way in the Parodius and Wai Wai series.

Game specific information

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

There is a belfry in The Dark Chapel, where the item is hidden in the first big bell encountered. The player must perform a High Jump (Hippogryph's soul) to get the item out.

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

Like in the previous game, there is a belfry with three bells in Chapter 1. To get the item, the player simply has to slip under the middle bell and jump. However, the item will appear under the left bell instead of the middle one.

  • The description stating this item is worth 5,000 points in some games may be a throwback to some older Konami titles where mascots from their other franchises appeared as hidden items; specifically from the Famicom game The Goonies, where these items were worth precisely that amount.
