3. Introduction |
================

Hi and welcome to my guide for Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles.

This guide will cover the remake and will eventully cover both Symphony of the
Night and the original Dracula X: Chi No Rondo (Rondo of Blood) for the PSP sy
-stem. My name is Ryan and I will try my hardest to help you (the gamer) to get
through one hell of a game. But allow myself to give you the basic round down
of this game.

It has taken 15 years for Konami to finally release Dracula X: Chi No Rondo to
the American gamers. Originally being on the TurbograFX engine in Japan, this
game was one of the most sought out games in the history of video games in hist
-ory. Taking elements from Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, it allowed players
to find hidden level routes with multipul bosses in one stage. This gave the ga
-me a good feel and more replay value. Not only that you had to rescue four
young maidens who which have been captured by Dracula himself. One of these
four girls happens to be Richter Belmont's girlfriend.

Now Dracula X: Rondo of Blood has been remade from it's original 2-D form it is
now in 2.5D graphics (3D gaming) but takes more 2D platforming effect. So to th
-e peolpe who have never played classic Castlevania before, this is going to be
one hell of a ride. Hate it or love it. Dracula X is NOW in America, so rejoice
and enjoy this most beloved game which is considered as the Holy Grail to all
Castlevania fans in the world.

Now on for Symphony of the Night. To thoughs who have read my original walkthro
-ugh for SoTN will know what this game is about. If not, then you're in for one
heck of a treat. In Symphony of the Night you take control of a man named Aluca
-rd, who, being the son of Dracula. In this game you are given Super Metroid
exploring elements and RPG (Role Playing Game) elements. Basicly it's the one
that started the crazy "castleroid" fever that we have been seeing for 10 years
on the Gameboy Advanced system and the Nintendo Dual-Screen.

When it came out back in 1997 for the orinal Playstation, it too was one of the
main games to get back then next to Squaresoft's (now Square-Enix) Final Fantas
-y VII. To the ones who had played the original, the voice acting has been redo
-ne with some new features. But I won't spoil that for you!

So without furtheradue I welcome you to the world of Castlevania!

_________________________________________________|

-----------------
=================|
Stage 0: Proluge | (DXRMS-000)
_________________|

The game will start with Richter riding in the rain on a horse carriege. Death
will make his presence known to test our hereo. Death will make his first move
by throwing his sythe at you. Just destroy it with a whip attack. Our enemy now
will make another attack, he will summon a huge glowing green skull. Just destr
-oy it with regular attacks. After that, the introduction is over. And the next
stage will begin.



-------------------------
=========================|
Stage 1: Dinner of Flames| (DXRMS-001)
_________________________|

Make your way foward and kill the Skeleton Apes that come before you. Now don't
forget to destroy the Tourches & Candles to collect hearts, gold and subweapons
for your adventure. Now continue on in towards the town. Once inside a scene wi
-ll take place.

Once the scene is over make your way upstairs and kill off the SKeleton Ape.
Now make your way up the second set of stairs.

Note: Becareful they love to hurl barrels at you. So destroy them!

Now that we're on higher ground destroy the corner of the left wall for some
gold. Now make your way right. As you move towards a tad, Skeleton Apes will
jump out of the windows of the burning buildings. Kill them off. Now move past
the Church and a (interest creature name here) will jump out of the window. His
attacks are different than previous enemy encounters. But all you really need
to do is study his movements and whip one time. Once he his dead hit the last
candle and make your way down stairs.

Now in this area we are at a cross road to either go to Stage 2a or 2b. So whi
-ch you choose is up to you. Anyways jump over the platform and hit the wall to
find some Pot Roast to replenish lost health.

-----------------------------------------------------------
*Path A*

Head through the door on the right side and continue out to city portion. Now
the only thing you need to worry about in this portion are Bats and Golems.
Bats will fly at you in different angles backwords and fowards. So make sure
that you either dodge them or kill them off.

Now as for the Golems they are the huge red rock creatures in front of you. To
take these guys out you need to know their two attacks. One is shooting three
fire balls from their mouth. These projectiles can either be destroyed or you
can evade them. Now when you are also close to them they will attempt to punch
Richter with their huge fist, so be very careful!

Note: The Golems die in 6 hits from your whip.

After you have taken them all out enter the next section. Continue forward coll
-ect everything from all the candles. You will then find yourself in front of a
gate. At this point the boss will make itself known.

-----------------------------------------------------------
*Path B*

Instead of taking the door to the right, walk down on the left. Break the wall
that you see there to reveal a big heart. Grab it, now hit the left top portion
of that same wall to reveal a hidden chamber. Go inside and kill the Ectoplasm
and make your way left. You will see a moving platform and some candles. Destro
-y the candles and collect whatever items you get. Now drop down the gap below.

Now destroy the wall on the right. Inside here will be a Stone Rose. Kill it
off to recieve Hidden Music Item 1*. Break the left wall behind it to reveal
some gold. Now head right and break the wall to reveal another hidden passage.
Continue foward in to the next room. Make your way towards the buckets of water
in which are being lifted up chain. Break lower right portion wall to get some
Pot Roast. Now make your way up collecting items from the candles. Now make
your way to the top right door. Enter it to find yourself on a bridge with a
castle in the background. Continue to move foward to trigger a boss battle.
-----------------------------------------------------------


-------------------------------
===============================|
Stage 2: God, Grant Me Strength| (DXRMS-002)
_______________________________|

Once the second stage starts move foward, kill the Skeletons and Crows that
are in your way. Once you come to dead tree kill the Crow and then the Axe Kni
-ght. He will take a few attacks and watch the way he throws his axes at you.
He'll either duck and throw them or vise versa. Once he is dead make your way
towards the huge gap. A big draw bridge will make a path in to the castle.

Once inside take note of the Chandelier at the top of the ceiling. If you move
towards them they will fall to the ground. Now make your way fowards. Kill any
Zombie that comes near you while collecting all candle drops. Now a Peeping Eye
will come out of no where. Kill him off quickly. Again take note of the second
Chandelier. Continue on to the next sets. Also make sure you grab the Holy Wate
-r subweapon. Move in to the next section.

In this room a large Behemoth will crash in to the wall. Count the candles when
you see the fourth one hit it for the Key. Now walk like hell killing any Zombi
-es that come in contact with you. Also try and grab some of the drops from the
candles. Once you hit the next room jump on the top ledge in front of you and
then the second. The huge creature will bash it's head in to the wall and die.

Now make your way to the top ledge on the right. You will come to a stairway
and you will see a Peeping Eye in a cage. Do not hit it, instead make your way
down and break the right wall for some Pot Roast. Now make your way down to
the room below.

In here you will come across some Mermen, just take 'em out like any normal
enemy. Now make your to the right in this room. You will eventully come to a
stairwell and a locked door. use that key on the door to open it and inside a
scene will trigger. After that you have Maria as a playable character. After
the scene make your way up the big stairwell we skipped. Up here, watch out
for Bats and take out the Peeping Eye. Now enter the next room. Collect everyth
-ing you can in here. Break the right bottom stairwell to reveal a large heart.

Now enter the next room for the next boss.

Stage 2b: Breaking Through The Front| (DXRMS-003)
____________________________________|

Path A -

Make your way across the bridge. Kill the Skeleton Swordmaster quickly. Now ki
-ll off the Bone Pillars which are in front of you. Also be careful one of the
bridge platforms will fall down to the ground slowly. So be cautious. Now kill
the Crow and then the Bone Pillars. In this next section take out the Gargoyles
and Bone Pillars.

Note: You can find Pot Roast on the brick the 1st Gargoyle came off of.

Continue fowards. In this section take out the Skull Spiders with Holy Water.
Also make sure you pay attention to the bone bridges, they calpse every time
you walk over them. Also make sure you take out the Skeleton Swordmasters. At
the end of this area you'll fight the Werewolf. (refer to strategy up above.)

When you're in the section with the Garygoles count the gaps in the bridge.
When you hit the 3rd one jump down. You will drop down on to a small boat. The
man will guide you across the river. Just becareful of the Mermen around here.

At the end of this section is a Candle, snatch it to recieve Hidden Music Item
2*. You will also be in Level 3b.
-----------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------
========================================|
Stage 3: An Evil Prayer Summons Darkness| (DXRMS-004)
________________________________________|

At the start of the level becareful of the Spear Guards. Take them out with
extream caution! Watch their attacks and kill 'em off quickly. You will then
see one above you. Do not let the floor above you fool you. They will thrust
their spear downword to hit you. To evade this just duck. continue foward until
you see a stairwell and Bone Pillars, kill them if you desire and break the rig
-ht wall to reveal a large heart. Make your way up. Kill off the Spear Guard
then the Bone Pillar then the next Spear Guard. Break the top left wall (the on
-e after the stairwell) to get some Pot Roast to regain lost health. Now make
your way up.

In this section make your way past the gaps while Skeletons swing in from some
rope. You will eventully come to a room with a huge Cross in it. Hit the cross
to get the Stop Watch (if you need it.) Kill the Bone Pillars and enter the nex
-t room.

In this room make your way up the stairs killing the Fleamen. Becareful when
they attack in swarms of 2-3. If that happens it will become deadly you might
die quickly. Continue foward. Once at the top kill the last two Flea Men. You
will the come towards some platforms glowing. Do NOT jump on these, they will
tilt back and you will fall. Also make sure you dodge/kill the Medusa Heads
that come towards you. When you get to the third portion you'll see some Bone
Pillars, kill 'em all and advance. Now continue, grab the Rosary to kill what
ever Medusa Heads in the way, destroy the pot for some Post Roast. Now hit all
three statues above with the Cross to reviece 1000 gold.

Now advance and destroy the Big Skeleton. Once he is dead wait for the bell to
ring a few times to recieve some Pot Roast. Enter the next room. In here take
out the ghost one at a time then advance, take out the Spear Guard and continue
to fight some moe Ghost. Now kill the second spear guard. Continue you will see
a Thief come towards you. Kill him and do not allow him to touch you or he will
steal your subweapon. Enter the next room. Destroy all candles in this room and
then break the lower left wall to find a huge Pot Roast to restore ALL of your
lost health. Now enter the next room to fight
-----------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------
===========================================|
Stage 3a: Release From The Thirst For Blood| (DXRMS-005)
___________________________________________|

This level is a swamp based type level. Start off by colle cting any candles you
see. Beware of the Mudmen who spawn out from the mud. Also watch the bats that
come out of no where. Kill 'em off quickly or dodge them.

Note: Make sure you get out of the mud quickly or you'll be sucked down in to a
muddy grave.

Now once you jumped over the first mudpit a Tomb Stone will come alive and jump
at you. Destroy it and take the stairs up. Here you'll find a lone Tomb Stone,
this one will not attack you for a relief. Move it to reveal a secret passage t
-hat you will drop down. In here you'll see six candles. On the the left side
you'll find in each candle the Cross, Holy Water and a Stop Watch. On the rigt
side you will find a Large Heart, 1UP* and the Axe subweapon (which I recomend
that you get.) Now once you have got the items you'l need drop down in the pit
below.

You'll drop back in to the pit of mud. Get out of quickly and advance onward. A
cut scene will start and a huge flying skull with three eyes will come out of
the darkness. To end it's undead life quickly use the Axe Subweapon and hit all
three of the eyes and it will die. You can now advance on. Here you'll come to
another muddy pit. Jump up to the area above and break the right wall to reveal
some Pot Roast to regain lost health.

*To Save Tera*

Now in this portion you'll see a platform below and one on top. Drop down to
the platform and attack the wall from top to bottom to reveal a hidden room. Go
inside. In here you'll see a Red Bone wall and a stairwell, take the stairwell
down to trigger a scene and you'll save Tera. You'll also gain the ability to
destroy the Red Bone walls.

Now make your way back upstairs and destroy the Red Bone wall so that it will
give you a path to go up and advance. You'll come to a Grave Digger who loves
to use martial arts. To avoid him wait 'til he runs towards you, back flip over
him and destroy him in four hits of your whip. Continue on and make your way up
while killing the Skeleton. Skip the stairway and continue forward to find a Sk
-eleton and another Grave Digger. Once the Grave Digger is dead drop below and
hit the wall (hit the bottom portion that doesn't break for some Pot Roast.)

Now backtrack to the set of stairs and head up. Now we have come to a cross
road. We can either take the main path and fight to fight the Dullahan or we
can tack the alternate. The way to get to Minotaurs is easy so I don't need
to write a part on that.

To get get to Level 4b you'll see some chains up above. Hit the second chain
ball that drops down to break it to watch it fall. Below it'll crush a hole in
the ground. So head back to the previous stairs and go back down. Drop down to
the pit below. Becareful you may endure damage from the spike ball. Now enter
the next door. Gather all the candles and hit the box on the left side to revea
-l a Large Heart. Kill the rat and try to reach the Large Heart it drops. Now
collect the rest of the candles and destroy the right lower wall to reveal some
Pot Roast. Now make your way downstairs to fight the boss.

-----------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------
===============================|
Stage 4: Atop Countless Terrors| (DXRMS-006)
_______________________________|

This level starts with Flea Men advancing right at you and Skeletons throwing
bones from above. Take 'em out. Becareful of the Red Skeletons who will resurre
-ct upon a few seconds. Make your way up, grab the Axe subweapon and advance to
the left. In the section take out the Bone Dragon with the axe. Now continue.

Cross the machines of death carefully. Once you're finished you'll see a lone
monster at the top. Kill him now becareful in this portion you'll step on some
traps. To edvade 'em, just jump once, then black flip for the 2nd. Now head up
the stair carefully, watch the spike lowerer'. Once it's at a safe distence pro
-ceed up. Now get through them. At the end will be another Bone Dragon, take
care of 'em or ignore 'em. Continue down this carridor and then to the next
section.

In this room you will see Fleamen on top of large iron balls. The objective is
to watch out for the Snake Skeleton thingies and getting on top of these iron
balls of death and making it to the top. In the next section take out the Skele
-tons and Red ones. Now make your way up to the next stairwell you see (ignore
the first one going down.) Now kill the Axe Armor and continue to the right
stairway going up. Up here take out the Axe Armor. Now hit the Spike swinger
and it's path way will be altered for a sec allow you to get under. Now continu
-e and destroy the wall of Bone Pillars. Now Jump on the moving platform and
then jump to the upper stairwell and make your way up.

In this lonely room make your way to the door and enter it. In this chamber col
-llect all items (holy water is recomended) and break the lower right wall (und
-er the door) to recieve a Large Pot Roast. Enter the door to begin the battle.
-----------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------
=====================================|
Stage 4b: Fortress Of The Water Demon| (DXRMS-007)
_____________________________________|
This level is fun (so I thought) The only thing you need to watch out for in
this section are frogs and Crows. Continue foward and jump or climb the stairs
down. Watch out for the frogs below swiming in the water. Climb up the next set
of stairs and kill the Frog. Once on top dodge & kill the Crow. Drop down to th
-e ground below, walk up the stairs and kill the frog and next Crow. Repeat the
same process. You will then come to frog statue with a door in front of it. Go
inside for the next section.

In this section you'll see a water fall and some rafts falling below. Now we ca
-n do one of the two things. Why? Because we've come to a cross road. We can
either save Tera or hitch a ride on the rafts below.

So if you want you can skip the part to save Iris if you wish.

*To save Iris*

Carefully hop on the raft and make it pass the huge gap. Kill the first Frog
that you see. Now we'll be on some bridges with skeletons climbing under it
and coming out of no where. Eventully you'll come to a blue frog. Do NOT kill
it. Instead evade it and let it fellow you foward until you come to some Frog
Statues. It will jump on one that is missing and it will lower. Now make your
way back left you'll notice there is a gap in the bridges now, so drop below
and make your way left to find a set of stairs. Go down them and you'll be in
a cave full of Mermen. Destroy them and proceed right until you come to a door
which you can go inside. In here you'll find Iris and trigger a scene. You'll
then gain the ability to destroy Crystals.

Once you're back in the Merman chamber destroy the Crystal Wall and then destro
-y the Candle to obtain a Music Sound Item* Now make your way back upstairs.

Now you can either go in to the door on the far right to fight Dullahan or head
down the rafts. In the raft section ride the waves kill the Skeletons with Spea
-rs behind you. Also you can hit the burds carrying tressure chest. Eventully
you will see a bird holding a sign. That is pretty much a caution that there
will be an ending of the river.

Note: The Sign says Deadly if you read it!

So carefully jump off the raft and on to the cliff. Now continue foward and
you'll come to a ferry man. Get aboard his ferry to trigger a scene and he will
guide you pass the river. Now get on the groundsection and destroy the Crystal
Wall to find a Sound Item* Now jump up you'll eventully come to a moving platf
-orm. Becareful of the hordes of bats that make way. Also collect the key and
move foward and unlock the door. In this room collect all the hearts and enter
the next room to fight the boss.
-----------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------
=================================|
Stage 5: The Devil flies by Night| (DXRMS-008)
_________________________________|

One of my favorite stages. Continue foward. Water Skulls will appear out of
the water, so kill them (1 hit) and move foward. Kill the Skeleton Flails on
the platforms and advance while taking out/dodging the skulls. Now you'll come
to a door. But out of no where two Skeleton Swordmasters will appear out of no
where. Kill the first one and as the second one dashes at you back flip over h
-im and kill. Now enter the door to get in to the ship.

Once inside take out the Skeleton Archer. Now ingore the stairs and you'll see
a wall. Break it open and go in. Jump on the crates to get above and destroy
the candles. One of them holds a Sound Item*. Now make your way down the set
of stairs. In here you can either destroy the wall on the right side (left
wall at the bottom) to go obtain a 1up by destroying the ship's engine and
risk getting shot at by Bone Muskets.

Or you can go right, take out the Skeleton Archer and head inside this room.
In here you'll fight a Spectural Sword. Take out its sword and find the right
one to advance in to the next room. In here grab the Cross Subweapon and the
heart (from the candles) now enter the next room to fight three Skeleton Archer
-s at a time. Once they are dead enter the next room.

In this room you'll fight a Phantom Painting. Becareful not to jump in to him
or he'll suck you up and kill you in 1 hit. Just kill him off with your whip
or cross subweapon (I suggest you save hearts.) Once he is dead enter the next
room. Above here you'll see a Musket Skeleton. Watch him firing, once you get
his timing right wait for him to fire two shots, as he reloads jump up and kill
him and make your way up.

Up here go left to collect the Axe Subweapon. Watch out for Flea Riders. Conti
-nue left until you come to Plate Armors who swing large iron balls to hit you.
Just kill them off while collecting candles and evading/killing Flea Riders.

Move left all the way until you hit the next section. Collect all the candles
you see. Make sure you get the Cross subweapon. Also if you need health break
the wall on the left. Make your way up to fight Death

to be in the third room inside the clock tower (the one passed the Harpy's.) No
-w make your way up until you see a Crystal Wall, break it and it will drop an

the bottom has opened up.

Make your way down the new set of stairs and open up the real door. Inside will
be Richter's lover and trigger a scene.

========================================
11. Boss Section: Rondo of Blood Remake |
========================================


Stage 1 Boss A : Wyvern (DXCRMB-001)

This boss is very simple. At first we will take note of how it attacks.

Attack 1: He will come down at you with his claw. Use this time evade and use
your main whip attack against him.

Attack 2: He will breathe fire and shoot it at some points on the ground. Be
cautious though, the flames will stick at their spot for a few second
-s.

Attack 3: His final attack he will fire a blue dragon face at the ground
as it hits the ground it will try to ram you. Just jump over it.

Now for the tactics. Take note of Attack 1. Use your whip when he comes down.
Next I suggest you spam Axes (if you have the sub weapon.) The axe will fly
up in an arch and hit him.

After the battle collect the Stage Clear orb.
----------------------------------------------------

Stage 1 Boss B: Serpent (DXCRMB-002)


Another simple boss. Lets check out it's attacks shall we?

Attack 1: He will lift his head out and fire some fire projectiles which will
try to ram in to you. Just jump over them and attack his head with
either the Axe/Cross subweapon or regular whip attacks.

Attack 2: He will twirl and coil himself around the bridge. The best to evade
this is to stand in an opening.

Now his weak spot is the head. So make sure you always hit there with either
regular whip attacks and subweapon use. You may die a few times if you aren't
used to the classic CV style. Either way keep practicing.
----------------------------------------------------

Stage 2 Boss A: Werewolf (DXCRMB-003)

This boss can be some what of a challange. So lets look at his attacks, shall
we?

Attack 1: He will fire projectiles at you. Just dodge these.

Attack 2: When he starts to climb the ceiling or walls he is going to do a flip
attack on you. The best way is to lure him. get in the mid portion of
the room and wait for him to do it. Quickly move away and attack him.

Attack 3: He will do a slide attack. Just jump over him.

Attack 4: When his health is almost gone he will do an ultra flip attack and
bounce off the walsl like crazy. Just time him and then hit him that
will make him stop.

Attack 5: He will smash his fist in to the ground upon death. Make sure you are
not near him or it will hurt! :\

Just use Holy water the item Crash attack "Hydro Storm" and regular whip attack
-s. He should go down with no problem.

Grab the orb when he dies.

----------------------------------------------------
Stage 2 Boss B: Coming Soon (DXCRMB-004)

Please in form me on how to get to this boss. Thanks :)
----------------------------------------------------

Stage 3 Boss A: Minotaurss (DXCRMB-005)

Attack 1: He will swing his huge axe down at you.

Attack 2: He will throw stones at you so dodge/destroy them.

Attack 3: He will spit in your eyes, which will stun you for a few seconds

Attack 4: He will ram at you. To evade this just black flip over him.

Attack 5: Upon death he will run at you and uppercut. To evade this just flip
over him.

Take him out using Whip and Cross hits. Item Crash helps but isn't really need
-ed. All you need to do is time his movements down and just practice, eventully
you'll beat him.

Grab the Orb when you're finished.
----------------------------------------------------

Stage 3 Boss B: Dogether (DXCRMB-006)

This boss is a huge eye and floats around the room. He's very simple. I suggest
you use the Axe subweapon.

Attack 1: He'll summon fire and throw it around the room, easy to evade.

Attack 2: He'll teleport around the room.

Attack 3: He'll summon some rocks to throw at you, destroy them with your sub
weapon.

Attack 4: He'll fire 3 laser shots, watch where they go and move under them.

Attack 5: When he dies he'll summon some runes. Watch the big rune come over
you, then quickly move to evade him.

After that collect the orb to clear the stage.
----------------------------------------------------

Stage 4 Boss A: Dullahan (DXCRMB-007)

This boss fight is pretty simple. All you really need to do is watch is movemen
-ts. Dullahan is a huge headless swordsmen who wiels a jousting pole and carrie
-s his head.

Attack 1: He will thrust his sword at you, just back flip to evade and then
attack.

Attack 2: His begin to float and turn green and will start chasing you. If it
touches you, Richter will be slown down. To evade this just jump or
back flip over his head. If you're lucky you'll be able to get in a
few shots.

Attack 3: He will jump up and thrust his sword in to the ground at you. To
evade this just move away from him and get in regular whip attacks
if you can.

Attack 3: He will thrust his sword in to the ground and ice crystal's will come
out of the ground. To Evade this reach for high ground and attack
using Holy Water.

Grab the Orb when he dies.
----------------------------------------------------

Stage 4 Boss B: Carmilla (DXCRMB-008)

This boss is patheticly easy. All you really need to do is watch two things.
One her main form which is walking around, if she touches you, she'll suck all
your hearts away. Now move to the platform on the left and attack the huge fly
-ing skull. Once the skull is destroyed, attack her she will then turn in to a
Succubus who will hop around. Just watch how she hops and attack her 'til she's
dead, nothing to it.

Attack *skull* 1: She'll throw flames around

Attack *Her Human form* 2: Her human form will suck your hearts dry.

Attack *Succubus* 3: She will kick and hop around you.


Collect the orb after she is dead.
----------------------------------------------------
Stage 5 Boss A: Death (DXCRMB-009)

Death can be a pain because he'll summon sickles at you. Just dodge and destroy
them. Try to get a few hits in on him with your cross & whip as he flies around
the area. After a certain amount of damage he will fly in the back ground and
fire skulls at you. Just dodge them.

He will then scream "Face me boy!" and he will transform in to his original sel
-f. At this point he'll summon a few sickles at you. He will also try to hit
you with his sythe. Ocassionaly he'll fire green balls at you which will follow
you around. Just use regular whip attacks, cross attacks and an item crash if
you need to use it.

After he is dead collect the orb.
----------------------------------------------------
Stage 5 Boss B: Hydra (DXCRMB-010)

Coming Soon
----------------------------------------------------

Stage 6 Boss Fights (DXCRMB-011)

Boss 1: Vampire Bat

This boss is pathetic. All he will do is fly around the room firing some projec
-tiles that follow you around and will spin in to the ground. Just use regular
whip attacks on him.

Boss 2: Medusa

Again another easy battle. Just use your Cross Subweapon on him and back her in
to a corner and continue to whip. Duck when she fires a laser at you or you'll
turn in to stone. She will also jump up and attempt to hit you with her tail.

Boss 3: The Mummy

Now things are starting to get challanging. He will hit you with his arms that
in which expand out. Just duck and hit him. He will then summon three blocks in
which you must jump over all three or be crushed. At this point he'll summon
some bandages that will go upwards and downward across the room. To evade this
just get back near the start of the room and hit him with your Cross and regula
-r attacks.

Boss 4: Frankenstein

This boss battle is simple. Just make sure you stay away from him. Your subweap
-on will not work. So just use regular attacks while dodging him. He will throw
out lightning balls at you in which you can backflip or jump over. He will also
try to grab you. Eventully he'll stomp on the ground and make the ceiling cave
in. To evade this just hide under the first platform. He should go down easy.

Boss 5: Shaft

He will use orbs to hit you and will teleport around the room. At first he'll
turn them on fire. Just dodge them and attack him. His other attack is whne he
turns them in to Lightning. Carefully time their strikes and just hit him with
Cross and regular whip attacks. Use an Item crash if you have enough hearts.

He should go down with ease.

After the battle collect the orb.

----------------------------------------------------
Stage 7 Boss B: L. Vampire (DXCRMB-013)

This boss is easy. She will use her bats to protect her from regular attacks.
The tick is, is to wait for her to use them to attack. A few of her moves can
be evaded easily. How you do this is simple. Just move in the middle of the
room when she sends her bats flying down wards. She will then have them move
in to a circle around her and the ones in front of her will reach to attack
you, just move away from them. She will then summon them all down to hit you
at once depending on where you're standing, again just move away. When her heal
-th drops almost being killed she will spend them spiraling, just evade them in
an opening and just attack every time she has an opening, she'll go down with
no problem.
