Castlevania Wiki

The first game in the Castlevania series introduced the overall sub-weapon gameplay mechanic. The five sub-weapons present in this title (Dagger, Holy Water, Axe, Cross and Stopwatch) became a staple in the series for many years and most of the times they have reappeared in recent titles in one way or another. They are just referred to as "Weapons" in the American instruction booklet, as are all other items that can be found in the game.
