STR Boost is a Stat Boost spell or power that increases Strength.

Game specific information

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

In Aria of Sorrow, increasing STR increases the damage of both hand-held weapons and Bullet SoulsSoma Cruz can obtain dominance over a number of types of Soul that give him boosts to his strength when equipped. One type is a series of Enchanted Souls that give flat boosts to STR as a passive buff:

There is also the Guardian Soul of the Great Armor, which is actually called Strength Booster and works differently to the others. Rather than providing a passive boost, this only increases STR while it is activated, and drains a substantial 60 MP/sec during this time. The boost is also not a fixed amount, and is described in a slightly misleading way: the Soul increases Soma's STR to 120%, not by 120% as the wording implies. In other words, if Soma's current STR is 50 and he activates Strength Booster his STR will increase to 60, not 110.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow / Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

In Dawn of Sorrow and Harmony of Despair, Soma is able to gain this ability from a Golem's and Minotaur's souls respectively, and the more such souls he has, the more powerful the effect.

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

STR Boost is one of Charlotte Aulin's magic spell skills in Portrait of Ruin. When cast, it boosts STR temporarily. A regular cast boosts STR +15, while a fully charged cast boosts STR +30.

Jonathan Morris has a counterpart for it, named Offensive Form.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

Vis Fio is a back glyph that increases Shanoa's strength. This bonus scales as her STR stat increases, and thus, grows in power as she levels up.
