A Knife Thrust (unofficial name) is a stabbing thrust made with a knife. It is performed while standing in place and bending a knee, targeting an enemy directly in front of the player. It is the attack for a Cutall in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, as well as the normal attack for Knife type weapons for Soma Cruz and Jonathan Morris in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, and Castlevania: Harmony of Despair.
