Carrie Fernandez is the most adept playable character at using the Energy Flow spell.

Energy Flow is a spell primarily used by Witches that gathers magical energy and then releases it as a Magical Orb, which then seeks out enemies. These orbs are sometimes also referred to as Homing Energy Bullets, Homing Shots or Energy Balls. The first instance of this spell was one of the several attacks available to the Salome witch in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and is a common attack of witch enemies in later games. It was later used as the primary long distance weapon for Carrie Fernandez in Castlevania (N64) and Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness, and could be used by her cousin, Camilla Fernandez. Soma Cruz and Charlotte Aulin are also able to acquire this attack from witches.

Witch enemies[]

The Salome witch in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night occasionally sends out magical orbs that lazily seek out targets, which also occurs in games that utilize this same sprite, such as Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin and Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. Witches and Pixies in Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance will also release a similar attack. The witches in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow summon a much larger fireball instead. The Student Witches in various games have not yet mastered the Energy Flow spell. The Witches in Castlevania: Circle of the Moon drop a spread of magical orbs. The witches in Castlevania: The Arcade also call forth a spread of five orbs at a time.

Carrie Fernandez[]

The attack is referred to as a Homing Energy Bullet in the American instruction booklet for Castlevania, and a Magical Orb in Prima's Legacy of Darkness Official Strategy Guide. In the Japanese version of both games, it is referred to as an Energy Ball (エネボール EneBall?). It is Carrie's primary distance attack. It does not consume Red Jewels. It can be quickly shot forward by attacking or it can home in on an enemy if it has been charged long enough before releasing it. It can be leveled up to two times upon finding a Power-Up, with the amount of damage and enemies it can go through increasing.

The energy ball appears as a bright white orb with various tints around the edges. At level one, it is orange in Castlevania and blue in Legacy of Darkness. At level two, it is purple, and at level three, it is green. When charged, it can have one or two rings around it.

Camilla Fernandez[]

Carrie's cousin, Camilla, who she is forced to fight by Actrice in Castlevania and Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness, is very adept at the usage of Homing Energy Bullets. She can send out three streams of energy bullets at a time, with three smaller bullets closely following a larger on in each stream.

Soma Cruz and Charlotte Aulin[]

Soma Cruz is able to obtain this attack by using a Witch's bullet soul in Dawn of Sorrow (called Energy Shot) and Harmony of Despair. Charlotte Aulin is also able to gain this spell after capturing it from a Witch in Harmony of Despair.
