Game specific information

Castlevania II: Simon's Quest

Dracula's Nail is found in Bodley Mansion and is one of the relics needed in order to fight Dracula at the end of the game. Equipping it allows Simon to break blocks with his whip instead of using Holy Water.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

The Tooth of Vlad is called the Nail in the original Japanese version of Symphony of the Night, the reason for the change is unknown. It is obtained after defeating the Creature and it provides STR +10.

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance

The Nail of Vlad is one of the six relics needed to enter the ceremonial room in the Castle Treasury. It provides a Strength boost (which had been provided by the Tooth of Vlad in Symphony of the Night).

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

Dracula uses his bare claws after being awoken in the Awakening mission, before he has enough power to summon his Shadow Whip.
