The Bracelets of Brotherhood are two bracelets owned by two best friends, one owned by Juste Belmont (JB's Bracelet), and the other by Maxim Kischine (MK's Bracelet). If ever they part ways, the bracelets will keep them together.


Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance[]

Neither bracelets improve stats nor have any effect in the game, other than acting as keys or event unlockers when equipped at the right place and moment (similar to the Silver Ring and Gold Ring and the Holy Glasses in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night).

The game starts with Juste Belmont's bracelet in the inventory. Maxim Kischine will give him his bracelet when he briefly regains his own personality in the Sky Walkway (Castle A, in the same room where Shadow was fought in Castle B). Equipping the bracelet will open the magically locked door located in the Chapel of Dissonance, giving the player access to the Castle Top Floor.

Near the end of the game, and after Juste has dealt the final blow to Maxim at the Castle Treasury (Castle B), he must wear both bracelets to make Maxim snap out of his trance and make the Dracula Wraith to finally appear, allowing Juste to destroy him once and for all and have access to the good ending of the game. It isn't necessary to equip the bracelets at any time during the fight. After dealing the final blow to Maxim, the screen will briefly flash before the next dialogue takes place - during this time, the player can quickly enter the menu screen and equip both bracelets to both save Maxim and fight the Dracula Wraith.

Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls[]

The bracelets can be obtained in this game as a single item in the Trade Shop with Astral Atraments. The artwork depicts Juste wearing both bracelets at the beginning of his battle with Maxim in Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance. The colors of the bands and jewels are swapped in regard to their depiction of their original game, which could be due to artistic license or an effect of the bands coming in contact with each other. The artwork also depicts electricity emanating from the bracelets and the item has the lightning element. When the type of the main weapon equipped is also Lachesis, it grants +30% to the Lightning element. It can also be upgraded to offer +30 resistance to Poison.

  • The true ending involving the use of both bracelets was created by Koji Igarashi and Takashi Takeda. According to an interview, the two left numerous hints relating to a (surprise) third ending involving the use of both bracelets. Hints pertaining to the bracelet can be seen on the Game Over screen, and Juste's self-monologue during Castle B's bad ending, where he mentions that he only has a bracelet to remember his lost friends by.[1]





  • The coloration of the jewels inside the bracelets in the Grimoire of Souls illustration is mistakenly switched. Juste's bracelet has a silver ring with a red gem and Maxim's bracelet has a golden ring with a blue gem, but in the illustration they appear as a silver ring with a blue gem and a golden ring with a red gem.
