Game specific information
The Fireball Whip is the second upgraded whip in The Adventure. After two Crystal power-ups are collected, Christopher's whip will launch fireballs out at full extension, with the damage equivalent of the regular leather whip (the whip itself still has the damage output of the second level chain whip upgrade), but giving Christopher an edge in attacking enemies from afar. Any subsequent damage to Christopher will turn the fireball whip into the chain whip.
The Fireball Whip is the second upgraded whip in Belmont's Revenge. After two Crystal power-ups are collected, Christopher's whip will again launch fireballs out at full extension, with the damage equivalent of the regular leather whip (the whip itself still has the damage output of the second level chain whip upgrade), but giving Christopher an edge in attacking enemies from afar. He will retain this powered-up whip unless he is hit by a Punaguchi's orb.
Collecting a second Crystal power-up will allow the whip to launch fireballs at full extension. Unlike the Game Boy games, this is only a temporary upgrade. A yellow power meter below Christopher's life meter will steadily drain over time until it is empty, after which the effect vanishes. In Classic Mode, the Fireball Whip will also vanish immediately if Christopher is damaged.
The downloadable 8-bit version of Simon Belmont from the original Castlevania is able to perform a sub-attack with the Vampire Killer that no one else can perform. By inputting ↓, ↘, → (facing right), he launches a short-range fireball as he strikes with the whip.
