For other uses, see Outer Wall (disambiguation).

The Outer Wall (崖側外壁 Gakegawa Gaiheki?) is a large, vertical structure off to the far right side of Dracula's Castle. A very unsettling elevator can be accessed here for faster transportation, as long as it is activated properly. At the very bottom, a room contains a telescope which Alucard can peer through to view the outside lake. The weather shifts here, too; sometimes it is foggy, sometimes it is raining, and sometimes it is a clear, moonlit sky. The weather effects are not present on the Saturn version.

Geography

The Outer Wall is the fourth stage in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. It is first reached from the Marble Gallery. It leads to the next stage, the Long Library. It also leads to the Clock Tower. However, you will not be able to get very far into the Clock Tower until you have the Double Jump ability that the Leap Stone gives you, which is obtained from the Castle Keep. This stage's counterpart in the Reverse Castle is the Reverse Outer Wall.

A secret room is present in the lower part of the area which would normally require entry through a grating using the Form of Mist, but can be entered far earlier. The upper entry is guarded by an extremely powerful Armor Lord, but Alucard can use Hellfire to teleport past him or Soul Steal or Summon Spirit / Tetra Spirit to kill him from the platform below.

This leaves Alucard in what appears to be a dead-end room, but the wall to the left can be destroyed. Standing in the alcove this creates for roughly 20 seconds will trigger a secret elevator which takes Alucard into the room below, which contains the powerful Jewel Knuckles and the extremely useful stone-resistant Mirror Cuirass. Using the elevator again allows Alucard to exit. Interestingly, the Armor Lord does not respawn.

At the very bottom of the Outer Wall, a usable telescope can be found. This will show a view of a nearby lake, where the Ferryman can be seen.
