The original 8-bit version of Simon Belmont from the original Castlevania is a downloadable character in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, released on January 26, 2011.

OverviewEdit

As Simon's mastery in sub-weapons increases, his whip changes form and size, growing from its leather form to its more powerful chain form. There's also a sub-attack with his whip that no one else can perform. By inputting ↓, ↘, → (facing right), Simon launches a short-range fireball as he strikes with the whip.

Simon's gearEdit

Much of Simon's gear appears in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. This gear can be equipped by anyone who has inherited the Vampire Killer whip.

Sub-weaponsEdit

Simon is able to utilize any "Belmont subweapon" that has been used by all members of the Belmont family, except for the Ricochet Rock. All of his weapons reach level 9, just like everyone else. The grind is worth it as it makes him stronger with his basic whip attack.

A glitch was confirmed that putting Down-B subskills can be spammed (useful for training them on Survival Mode). Hold while pressing LB and B at the same time at fast speed to spam. (Note: Simon's whip only changes form by reaching higher levels with non-DLC sub-weapons; thus, the Javelin and all Retro Sub-Weapons do not have this effect.)
