Some sub-weapons from Castlevania also made an appearance in Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, along with many new ones (such as the Sacred Flame or the Diamond). Their usage remained basically the same, by pressing ↑ + [ATTACK] to use them while sometimes consuming a determined amount of Hearts. Once collected, a sub-weapon will remain in the player's inventory for the rest of the game, allowing them to choose the most adequate sub-weapon for each given situation and making it more of an issue to actually find them throughout Simon's journey.

The Holy Water in this game does not consume any Hearts at all and inflicts only minimum damage, rendering it mostly to dissolve certain walls and have access to secret areas or items. Some other sub-weapons, like Laurels or Garlic, have a limited use depending on the amount the player is carrying. These can be replenished by buying more in towns or, in the case of Laurels, by finding a Gypsy who bestows Simon with a full supply free of charge.

Sub-weapons that would normally used as weapons in real life are called Magic Weapons in the US instruction booklet (along with other weapons), while those that represent everyday items, even if they're used in a combat fashion in the game, are called Magic Items (along with other items).
