  • Abuses programming errors
  • Manipulates luck

I skip soul orb, a relic enables player to see the damages taken by enemies, though all existing CV HoD run take this item.


The route is much more optimized. Platinum Tip, Giant Bat fight, and Golem fight is skipped. I level up to 16 eventually in order to kill Blaze Skeleton in one hit at frame 25260.

I get Lucky Ring and Kaiser Mail. Kaiser Mail increases STR by 5, which affacts the damage to enemies. Lucky Ring does not only increase LCK, which affacts the probability of meating rare ghost, but also increases the probability of critical hit.

If Juste do a dash jump, double jump, throw any sub weapon, high jump to the opposite direction when Juste is closed to the ceiling, and do any attack movement, Juste will move with a x-accelerated speed of 0.25px/f. I use this tech at frame 32850, for the ceiling is far from the floor and other accelerating glitch do not apply.

After Dracula 2nd form fight, it is possible to skip the orb and enter the outdoor scene directly, by zipping out the boss room when Dracula die. This tech is provided by gstick.


  • klmz: he provided lots of imformation helpful for this run.
  • gstick: for the tech of skipping the orb after Dracula fight.
