Simon using Axe.
|Effect||Simon tosses a large, powerful axe in an arc forward.|
When performed, Simon takes a large axe out and tosses it forward in an upward arc while grunting. Opponents hit by the axe are dealt large amounts of damage and knockback. If an axe lands on a platform, it will stay for a moment before disappearing, continuing to damage opponents who make contact with it, although during the time the axe is still active Simon will be unable to throw a new axe where attempting to do so will result in nothing being thrown unless the previous one has disappeared.
The axe is a sub-weapon that appears in many games throughout the Castlevania series, starting with its debut title. In most games it appears in, it is a throwable weapon that travels in an arc when thrown. As with other sub-weapons, the use of axes requires hearts, which act as ammunition. Both the axes themselves and the hearts required to use them are often found by breaking candles located across the stage.
The axe used in SSF2 is most similar in appearance to the axe Simon uses in Castlevania Chronicles.
