Sprint is a dash ability that increases the character's speed into a run, usually by double-tapping and then holding a directional button. In the Lords of Shadow games, sprinting can only be done in short bursts.

Game specific information

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

This ability was first featured for Richter Belmont in Symphony of the Night, where he can sprint from the beginning without the aid of any item by tapping twice and then holding the directional pad to either side, right or left.

Alucard was given the capability to sprint in Symphony of the Night's Saturn version after finding the God Speed Shoes (神速の靴 Shinsoku no Kutsu?) relic.

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon

Nathan Graves is able to sprint in Circle of the Moon after getting the Dash Boots Magic Item. It is the only relic in the game that is not guarded by a boss.

Castlevania: Lament of Innocence

In Lament of Innocence, it is a Relic item called Wolf's Foot that can be found behind the Red Phoenix Door in the Anti-Soul Mysteries Lab's 2F.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

In Lords of Shadow, the Cyclone Boots bestow this ability.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate

Trevor is able to sprint in a similar fashion by using the Speed Boots.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

Dracula starts with this ability.
