Quick Parry, or Quick Bullet is is an ability in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow and Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. It can be obtained by gaining dominance over the Dead Warrior's soul, and it allows Soma to interrupt his weapon attack mid-animation with his currently equipped bullet soul (UP + B). It only works while standing.

It is generally more useful with slow weapons, does not work with throwing weapons in Dawn of Sorrow. And even if certain souls, like Blood Sucker, successfully interrupt an attack, they will not follow up with their own.

  • In Aria of Sorrow, it's game description "Deflect normal attacks by pressing UP + B." is a mistranslation. It should read, "Interrupt normal attacks by pressing UP + B.".
