The Disc Armor is an enemy in the Castlevania series. He is an armored knight that is an expert at throwing giant, spinning, razor-sharp discs.


Disc Armors are not very common enemies and are usually found far and between. They are generally encountered stationary at the center of the rooms they appear in, and in many occasions near of staircases, where the inclined layout allows for their attacks to be maximized.

They wield a giant, spinning, razor-sharp blade which they hurl forward when approached. The disc is fastened to a metal string or chain which the knight uses to pull the blade back for further attacks. When defeated, the disc sometimes remains in place for a short period of time, keeping the momentum it had at the moment the knight died, thus still posing a threat.

Certain variants, when defeated, will open their armor's breast plate and let out a myriad of discs bouncing as they die. These are harmless, however, and are only added for aesthetic reasons.
