HD Hymn

The Book of Music, also known as Songbook or Hymn, is one of Maria Renard's characteristic sub-weapons in the Castlevania series. It allows to sing a sacred melody that wards off evil.


This attack was first introduced in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, forming part of Maria Renard's unique sub-weapons arsenal. When used, Maria stands in place singing a tune and the music notes from her song oscillate in front of her toward enemies until she has finished. She can cancel this attack at any time in order to move.

In Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, Soma Cruz is able to use this attack as well by gaining dominance over the Siren's soul. When used, it creates a musical note than slowly travels to a given direction while swinging up and down. Each note deals 31% current HP of its target as damage if they are weak to the Curse element. Up to eight notes can appear onscreen at a time. Even though the damage of the soul can be normally improved by STR, when hitting an enemy susceptible to Curse, the normal damage is turned into % current HP damage, and this cannot be improved by any means.
