Simon is a base character, where he does not excel in every area but doesn't do terrible at either one. Wielding the Vampire Killer, Simon favors speed and combo to keep enemies flinching. He does not own a true projectile, but his whip has good range compared to swords or claws. Simon also is among the few characters that can cancel and connect many combos to potentially create an unbreakable combo until the enemy is in critical or knocked out.

  • Main ability:

Simon uses the whip to connect simple and difficult combos either standard or moving ones. Some of his combos move him forward and upward and gives him decent reach.

  • Air ability: Simon also can use the whip to pull of vertical or horizontal lashes of the whip.
  • Evading move: Thumb Roll at the direction Simon faces, he can dodge any attack as long as he is still rolling or he does not roll to a "Ring Out".
  • Item manipulation: Simon can whip a candle or a crystal and throw it to wherever he is aiming.
  • Other abilities:
    • Binding Whip: Whips the enemy towards Simon. Base Combo for either Rising Whip or Holy Ruin.
    • Rising Whip: Charges the whip and hit the enemy vertically upwards.
    • Holy Ruin: A rush of energy from a simple punch from Simon's whip.
    • Dancing Whip: Toss the whip at a short range. Does little damage, but can annoy enemy.
    • Twisting Arrow: Simon pulls of a torpedo dive at his enemies. Higher jumps means better hits.
    • Whip Tornado: Simon charges his whip and do a 360 degree spin that hits everywhere around him.
    • Sudden Impact: Simon charges spins the whip and slams the whip in front of him, piercing all defenses with a rush of energy.
  • Hyper Attack: Vampire Killer (Simon Version) — Simon charges at his enemy and hits them onward to connect the Hyper. He charges his whip and the Golden Cross on his back glows brightly. He rushes at his victim while they fail to block unable to comprehend his speed and power. Simon whips his victim five times vertically and charges his whip another time with more power before hitting his victim another ninety three times creating an illusion of a sphere. Simon ends it with a final two powerful hits totaling the combo to 99 hits. Simon lands on the ground and explains to his victim the power of a Belmont.
