DOS Puppet Master

Puppets are dummies that can be thrown into narrow corridors. Once they land, the character who threw them switches places with them. The ability Substitute Puppet was first obtained by Soma Cruz from the Puppet Master's soul in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, and later in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. The playable Old Axe Armor is also able to use this ability in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin.

Game specific information

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

Substitute Puppet can be obtained by gaining dominance over the Puppet Master's soul in Dawn of Sorrow, and enables Soma to throw a puppet forward and switch places with it when it lands. This allows the player to reach the other side of small holes on walls located throughout the castle, which either serve as shortcuts or allow access to all new areas (mainly the Condemned Tower and Subterranean Hell).

Besides the aforementioned properties of this ability, if the player equips the Skeleton Ape's soul, Power Throw, the puppet will be thrown a larger distance. Using this method is one of the alternative ways of reaching the other side of the flooded, spiked cavern in the Subterranean Hell.
