Jet Black Whip PoR Icon

The Jet Black Whip is a whip in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. It is a jet black whip imbued with the power of darkness.

It is most effective when used against foes who are weak against Dark, like the Whip's Memory or the Amalaric Sniper (the only two enemies in the game that are weak against Dark-based attacks). Otherwise, this whip is notoriously weak in comparison to some of the more powerful weaponry that will more than likely be at Jonathan's disposal by the time it is acquired. In addition, most of the enemies encountered in the late stages are Dark-resistant. To somewhat compensate this drawback, the whip also inflicts Poison.

A Shadow Whip can be formed that deals additional damage in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow by activating Shadow Magic.
