SOTN Osafune Katana 2

Warp Strike (unofficial name) is a special attack performed by certain weapons where the user will warp a short distance to strike an enemy (being completely invulnerable while doing so). In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, this move can be performed by the Alucard Sword, Osafune Katana, and Masamune. There are two variations: a Warp Forward Strike (such as Masamune's) and a Warp and Strike from Behind variation (possessed by the Alucard Sword). In the first variation, the user will warp toward the opponent and strike while facing him, while in the second variation, the user will warp behind the enemy and strike him there. Both types will hit an enemy twice per attack. The katanas' Warp Strike costs no MP, which is a great advantage since it allows continuous and unlimited use, in addition to the invincibility frames it provides. It also has a Slash Flurry effect.
