Equip the Mimic Soul and head to the clock tower save point. With this soul equipped, you can get hurt on the spikes to gain money, then use the save point to regain health when needed.

The Iron Golem is a tough enemy to take down since it usually only takes one damage per hit. Use the Mjollnjr Hammer weapon which will hit several hits instead of just one. If you cleared the game and unlocked the Boss Rush, use the Terror Bear's soul item for a slightly easier attack on the Iron Golem.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Hint: Hard To Find Souls
Yeti ... Take the Waiter Skeleton Soul and go to the start of the game where Julius and Yoko were seen at. A small figure may be seen in the backdrop. If the WS soul is used, the Yeti will spring forward to attack.

Mothman ... Go to the Pinnacle area and locate a hallway with two Final Guards. Use the Rycuda soul on the spotlight's generator between the two Final Guards and nab your enemy.

Flying Humanoid ... Go to the area between the Clock Tower boss and the save point. A figure may be seen in the backdrop. Using the Mandragora soul will lure out this enemy.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Hint: Batting Final Guards
Final Guard enemies are a hard to kill. Use the Bat Company soul to attack them from behind. This bags you free hits while evading their attacks.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Hint: Zephyr Blindspot
The goal is to glitch the boss into hanging on the edge of the screen, doing nothing, but being vulnerable to your attacks. Equip Skeleton Ape Soul and Puppet Master Soul. Wait for the boss Zephyr at the opposite side of the room (next to a wall) to goad the boss into doing the sliding attack move. If you manage to execute the Puppet Master skill right before the boss hits your character, the boss will slide through your character (during the animation) and Zephyr will continue sliding into the wall and stuck! From there on out, you simply bash his head in with a rock. Note that if you approach too close, the boss will unstick itself and attack you once more.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Hint: Skip Boss Rush
This is basically the same method used in the rare item bug trick but for skipping the entire boss rush mode and still obtaining the item at the end of the mode.

If you are afraid of data corruption, make a copy of the game before you do this.

Make sure you have the Cinquedia weapon. Hammer will sell it to you if you don't have it. Equip Succubus bullet-type soul and Cinquedia once in boss rush mode.Stand near the right wall of each exit to a boss room and use the Succubus attack (UP + ATTACK) and quicky cancel with special attack. Quickly attack three times and do another special attack. After that your should have teleported through the wall into the next boss room.

Repeat this over until you have passed all the bosses and reached the last room where the item awaits you and the boss rush mode ends.

Depending on how quick you have beat the boss rush mode will depend on what item you will recieve:
  • 8 minutes or more, Potion
  • Under 8 min, Nunchuku
  • Under 7 min, Terror Bear
  • Under 6 min, Death Robe
  • Under 5 min, R.P.G. weapon


  • In the room with the water, just sink to the bottom right corner and perform the bug there. You can also equip the Enchant-soul: Draghignazzo to avoid being interrupted while trying to do this glitch.

    Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Hint: Low Life Scraping
    When your health is low, equip the Succubus soul. If you don't want to risk losing more health, simply use it on candle sticks. When you do this you gain health and the candles drop hearts that replenish magic.

    Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Bug: Get Rare Weapons
    • Make a copy of the game to avoid screwing save file.
    • Choose the copied save and make sure you have the Cinquedia weapon-- Hammer sells it.
    • Warp to Mine of Judgement and enter the Abyss to reach the first save point.
    • Equip Succubus bullet-type soul and Cinquedia
    • Save your game here so you can redo the bug to get desired results .
    • Stand near the left wall and use the Succubus attack (UP + attack) and quicky cancel with special attack. Quickly attack three times and do another special attack--you should be through the wall.
    • Press down + jump to slide--watch your map and you'll see your dot move to the right.
    • Move to the left side of the screen and wait for about 5 minutes.
    • When your dot stops moving, hold left on the d-pad to move back to the right side of the screen and continue until you re-enter the map.
    • Your controls will sometimes be messed up -- you can reset them to default to fix them.
    • Check your swords and bullet-type souls. You'll randomly get weapons you can't normally get -- alucard sword /whip -- and souls from other characters, like Belmont's abilities.


    Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Easter Egg: Classic Castlevania Coolness
    There are a few left-overs from the 8-bit Castlevania in Dawn of Sorrow. Go to the Demon Guest House and locate the room with a chair and bed. Sit in the chair and a crown (doesn't do anything) will appear.

    In the Chapel, employ Hippogryph to reach the bell on the farthest left and a bell will appear. Both of these items were point bonus items in the original NES Castlevania.

    Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Easter Egg: Konami Man
    Locate the room with ceiling spikes in the Cursed Clock Tower. Use Bat Company to get on the small platform and have Soma crouch to cause the Konami Man to appear. Konami Man is a mascot known only to 8-bit Konami game fans (like Goonies II).
