Strength Ring Icon

The Strength Ring is a ring that increases Strength at the expense of other statistics (usually Intelligence).

Game specific information

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon

The ring first appeared in Circle of the Moon (called the Power Ring in Japan), where it provides Nathan a STR boost of +50, at the expense of -10 in DEF and INT. It has a scaled down effect as the Strength Armband. It is the Strength counterpart to the Intelligence, Hard and Luck Rings.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

The ring returns in Order of Ecclesia and it represents the Tarot card "Strength". Wearing it provides Shanoa a STR boost of +5, at the expense of INT -2.


This ring can be found in the second-to-last room of Minera Prison Island. To find it, Shanoa must first allow her to get spotted by one of the searchlights in this room, which will in turn summon a ferocious Tin Man, and destroy it in order to make the ring appear. An easy way to do this is by equipping two Macir glyphs, one on each arm, and first get rid of the two Demons inhabiting this place, a feat easily accomplished by performing a Union Macir on each one of them. Once the coast is clear, Shanoa must allow herself get spotted by a searchlight and quickly perform another Union Macir, which will strike the newly spawned Tin Man. Immediately after the hit connects, do a backflip and quickly perform a second Union Macir, which will render the Tin Man stationary, resorting to use its concealed machine gun. Just approach it and strike it once or twice more to destroy it. Once this has been achieved, a blue treasure chest will emerge containing the Strength Ring.

  • In Order of Ecclesia, SoyBeanFlour, the cat found in Minera Prison Island, gives a clue[1] about the existence of this ring and how to obtain it, if Shanoa talks to him in Wygol Village while using the Arma Felix glyph.
  • The Ring of Ares is another ring that confers a boost in Strength, although sometimes at the expense of Defense.


  1. "Get spotted in prison and a scary machine comes out. ...But that doesn't mean it's not worth fighting." - SoyBeanFlour's dialogue from Order of Ecclesia.
