Symphony Weapons/Items

Symphony of the Night offers a very large selection of weapons and items for Alucard to utilize. Because of the excessive amount of goodies, this weapons feature is three pages long, and it's divided into nine subsections: Basic items, Relics, Recovery, Equipment--with its own sub-categories--Familiars, Shield Spells, Sword of Dawn Summons, and Spells. Where applicable, I'll be listing dropped by/location explanations and special statistics. Also, weapons will be listed in alphabetical order rather than from least-to-most powerful. (Note: If you're looking for the sub-weapons, such as holy water, you'll more likely find those here.)

While it's not necessary to collect all of the relics, most of them are needed to complete the game. Relics look like floating tarot cards, and collecting them can result in any number of conditions, including the following: Upgrades to Alucard's physical abilities, the summoning of familiars--those conjured helpers--and the access to areas he otherwise couldn't reach before.

Recovery Items

While the Belmonts could only regain their strength by munching down all kinds of roasted goodies, Alucard can regain varying amounts of energy using the items below. This listing is divided into two sub-categories: Food and Potions. Note that some of the food items can only be found by using a Meal Ticket, and remember that some items may instead have a negative effect. If an enemy is prone to drop food or potions, it'll be listed accordingly; otherwise, a location will be given.
