The unlockable playable character Julius Belmont is able to use Sub-Weapons in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, while the main protagonist Soma Cruz is able to use Bullet Souls instead, which he gains by stealing monster's souls and behave like Sub-Weapons. Both of these are fueled by Magic Points instead of Hearts though, although Hearts acquired are also used to replenish the MP Gauge. Instead of starting out at a predetermined level like the standard Heart count, the MP Gauge starts out completely filled at the beginning of the game or from a save room, like the HP Gauge. MP is recovered gradually over time for Soma and also are completely refilled after defeating a boss and obtaining a Magic Crystal.

Soma Cruz[]

See also: Bullet Soul

While Soma does not have access to traditional sub-weapons, some of the abilities he gains from monsters can be used in similar ways.

Some of his abilities can also mimic other sub-weapons found in earlier games, including some of Maria Renard's.

He also has access to a plethora of other Bullet Souls with abilities that mimic other powers seen in previous Castlevania games, as well as some unique ones.

Julius Belmont[]

The unlockable character Julius Belmont is able to use traditional sub-weapons (Crucifix, Holy Water, and Axe), as well as one Item Crash (Grand Cross), which he starts with and can switch to at any time. Julius is missing the standard Dagger and Stopwatch sub-weapons. Julius' MP does not refill automatically over time, placing more emphasis on the acquisition of hearts to fuel sub-weapons.
