For the power-up item, see Morning Star (power-up).

The Chain Whip is a whip made of chains. In most games, it's the middle form the Vampire Killer can take and usually evolved from a Leather Whip after obtaining a Morning Star or Crystal power-up. It's stronger and sometimes longer than the Leather Whip and can be further powered-up into a Morning Star (which extends the length of the whip).

Game specific informationEdit

Castlevania II: Simon's QuestEdit

The Chain Whip in Simon's Quest is a weapon upgrade that is one level higher than the Thorn Whip; it retains the same length and deals out much more damage. It can be purchased in the town of Veros for 150 Hearts. The player does not need to have the Thorn Whip in order to upgrade to the Chain Whip, and can purchase one even if they have a stronger weapon. The player can later purchase an upgraded Morning Star.
