Only Jonathan Morris, Richter Belmont, Maria Renard, and the Old Axe Armor can utilize sub-weapons in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. Jonathan can use a large variety of sub-weapons, while Richter and Maria can only use the ones they could in past games and the Old Axe Armor can only use the Axe and the Puppet. If Jonathan earns enough skill points for a given sub-weapon, he can Master it, which usually causes its form to change and become more powerful.
