Game specific information

Vampire Killer

The Red Crystal (sometimes called a Red Orb) is used in place of Meat in this game. It replenishes a small amount of health. It is not as effective as a Potion, which replenishes all of your health.

Castlevania II: Simon's Quest

The Red Crystal has the ability to summon a transportation tornado and also has the abilities of the Blue Crystal (drain water) and White Crystal (view invisible platform). It is obtained by trading a Blue Crystal from the crystal trader in the town of Aldra.

The tornado can be summoned at Deborah Cliff, which is at the far western portion of the northern section of the Jam Wasteland. The tornado is summoned by pressing down for a few seconds with this crystal equipped while facing the cliff. The tornado will take you from the western-most part of the game to the most easterly mansion, Bodley Mansion. Just to the west of this mansion is another water logged area that the crystal can help you enter (hold down for a few seconds at the shore), which will help you obtain the Flame Whip and enter Laruba Mansion.

  • The Red Orb from the game Dust: An Elysian Tail is a direct reference to the Red Crystal in Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. The reference goes as far as having the same use: the orb must be taken to the topmost part of a cliff (itself being a reference to Deborah Cliff), and kneel and wait for a whirlwind spirit to carry the player to a secret area.
