Purify is an Innocent Devil ability in Castlevania: Curse of Darkness. It is learned by the Nautilus Rod evolution of the Mage-Type. With a single blow, returns all ghost monsters to the afterlife.


This ability is innate of the Nautilus Rod (does not appear on the Command List) and once unlocked gives the Mage-Type a Heart-free offensive skill which is automatically cast against enemies when the player is not issuing a Command. It is Light-elemental, which means it can deal a considerable amount of damage to a single enemy by summoning a pillar of light from the ground where it stands.

There are three unique effects or uses of this ability:

  • It is Light-based, perfect for usage against most enemies in the game, which are generally weak to this element. It's also passively cast by the Mage-Type when enemies are around and the player is neither giving it the Command to execute active skills nor in Guard Mode.
  • There is a high chance for this ability to instantly kill an enemy. If the enemy seemingly blends into the pillar of light, their body will disappear and can also drop a Big Heart.
  • It's one of the two known methods in Curse of Darkness that can destroy the seemingly-immortal Blood Skeletons (the other being the Holy Whip). As such, an HP Max Up in Baljhet Mountains can only be obtained by defeating two of these skeletons.
