POR Salamander

Summons a Salamander to aid the player.


Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

In Symphony of the Night, the spell performed by using the Fire Shield's combo spell, either with a Shield Rod or with a Mablung Sword, will spawn three fiery dragons who will attack all enemies (50 MP).

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon

Summons a Salamander which brings along with it flaming meteors raining down on the entire screen. This can be performed in Circle of the Moon by utilizing the Uranus + Salamander DSS combination.

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance

In Harmony of Dissonance, the similar magic "Soul of Hydra" appears as a spell fusion by combining the axe sub-weapon infused with the powers of the Fire Book. A giant hydra engulfed in flames will be summoned and it will attack one enemy on the screen. It will deliver heavy and constant damage to that enemy for a brief period of time. If the enemy dies, the hydra will seek and attack another enemy. If no enemies are left on the screen, the hydra will just slither through the air for a moment and then leave.

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness

  • In some Castlevania games, the Salamander resembles either the Intruder enemy from the Gradius series, or Zelos (dragon form) from the Salamander series, both also from Konami. These enemies are portrayed as serpent-like dragons engulfed in flames that can shoot fireballs from their mouths while slithering through the air.
