The Thorn Whip is a whip formed from the stem of a rose.

In Castlevania: Simon's Quest, it is an upgrade to the Leather Whip. It can be purchased in the town of Jova (the same town where the game begins) for the price of 100 Hearts. Despite being a "thorn" whip, its appearance is similar to the Leather Whip, both in-game and in the manual, although it is longer and deals out twice as much damage.

In Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, it can be formed by combining the Mercury card with the Mandragora card.

In Castlevania Portrait of Ruin, the Rose Stem Whip can be dropped by the Maneating Plant in the Forest of Doom or can be found in the Tower of Death later.
