Simon tossing his cross forward.
|Effect||Simon throws a large cross that travels straight forward and then straight back.|
When performed, Simon takes a large, blue cross out and throws it forward. It quickly travels in a horizontal path forward for a short time and then, after slowing to a pause, it travels horizontally in the opposite direction like a boomerang. Opponents hit by the cross are dealt moderates amounts of damage and knockback. Simon can also catch the cross if he makes contact with it, but if he does not then it will simply continue to travel and damage opponents in its way.
The Cross, also known as the Boomerang, is a sub-weapon that appears in many games throughout the Castlevania series, starting with its debut title. In each game it appears in, it is a throwable weapon that travels horizontally forward and then back. As with other sub-weapons, the use of axes requires hearts, which act as ammunition. Both the Cross itself and the hearts required to use them are often found by breaking candles located across the stage.
The Cross used in SSF2 is most similar in appearance to the Cross that Simon uses in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
