POR Holy Lightning

The Thunder Cross (called Holy Lightning in the Western release of Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin) is a Dual Crush attack which involves a cross-shaped lightning bolt to form between the partners' hands. The lightning extends across the screen and rotates slowly, dealing multiple Thunder-based hits to all enemies on the screen.

Game specific information

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

The Thunder Cross spell, renamed as "Holy Lightning" in the Western release of the game (and not to be confused with the real Holy Lightning spell from the Belnades Clan), first appeared in Portrait of Ruin as a Dual Crush between Jonathan Morris and Charlotte Aulin, and it is the second Dual Crush expected for the player to collect (the first being Rush), appearing in one of the rooms of the first portrait they have access to. It costs 100 MP to cast, and while this may seem quite expensive at the beginning (allowing no more than one or two consecutive casts), as the player progresses through the game and their MP pool increases, the spell becomes more affordable, allowing them to frequently clear heavily populated areas or severely damage larger enemies.

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

In Harmony of Despair, Thunder Cross is the Dual Crush that is used whenever a holy whip-wielding warrior (Jonathan, Julius, or Richter) crushes with a female mage (Charlotte, Yoko, or Shanoa). An exception to this rule is when Jonathan and Charlotte crush together, which results in them performing 1,000 Blades instead.
