The Type B knife attack (as defined by Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls) involves summoning or tossing up a Knife, which then hovers spinning in the air for a while, until pointing in the direction of a target, and then shooting out in a straight line toward that target.

It first appeared as the boss Soleiyu Belmont's primary means of attack, who threw out Triple Daggers into the air, potentially damaging the player, which would then stop and spin and home in on the player's present position. The Wizard in Castlevania: Chronicles could summon three similar daggers from the ground in.

It could first be used by the player as a special attack an Astral Dagger could perform in the Sega Saturn version of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Alucard summons these knives from another dimension.

It then became the second possible standard attack for a whole class of Dagger Sub-Weapons in Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls. These knives are tossed up first before they hone in on a target.
