Cheats & Guides

Castlevania: Lament of Innocence Cheats For PlayStation 2

  1. Access Switch Room Early

    In the level ''House of Sacred Remains'', there is a room with a doorway on a balcony (second room to the ''east'' after reaching first ''east-west hallway'', contains a Crystal sup-weapon) that can normally only be accessed after you aquire the Wolf's Foot Relic, by jumping off the balcony across the room from it. But it can be reached w/o this relic. Simply jump onto the balcony in front of it (will be a large ''gate'' between them), then jump down off the bottom corner (towards camera), double jump towards the door balcony, and whip onto the rail. This may take a few tries, as its somewhat tricky to get into the right place.

  2. Duplicate items early in the game (NA Version)

    You can duplicate items early and a very easy way early in the game. First off you must have at least one of the items you want to duplicate. Example would be a High Potion. Now go to the very first save point in the game. Its on Leons right as he enters the castle. Now before you actually go to the save point you really just need to go to the hall where the save point is. If you walk on the left side of the screen on the red part of the carpet you should see a green part of the floor where it looks like the moon is shining through green. You need to stand on the red part of the carpet facing the window on the green spot of the floor. Next press start and go to items. Scroll down to the item you want to duplicate. You should notice that all of your items are going up by one. You can get a max of 9 in normal mode and 5 in Crazy mode doing this. You can do this for any item. Try it with a gem like a diamond then sell the diamonds back to get infinte money.

  3. Item Duplication - Pagoda Of The Misty Moon (US Version)

    There's another way to duplicate your Items, instead of doing it in the Prelude To The Dark Abyss/Castle Entrance. On Floor 2 of the Pagoda Of The Misty Moon, just as you enter the Floor, nearby on the carpet is a circle design. Stand near it and enter the Menu and head to your Item List and duplicate away.

  4. Bowling mini-game and Ramen item reward

    In the "House of Sacred Remains" area, there is a secret bowling mini-game with a Peeping Eye enemy and multiple Skeleton enemies. The room with this secret is located next to the room where the "Spartacus" enemy is found.

    When you enter the room, you may notice non-moving skeleton enemies placed and arranged in a cone-like fashion, much like how bowling pins are arranged in a bowling game. The Peeping Eye enemy serves as the bowling ball: just wait for it to land on the ground to attack you, then attack it with a weak attack. The attack will make it spin like a bowling ball, and you can attack from a direction so it hits, and knocks down, the skeleton monsters.

    When playing as Leon, the skeletons, once knocked down like pins, get replaced by another set of skeletons. After a total of 3 sets of this, if the Peeping Eye enemy is still alive, a Ramen item will drop from above where the skeletons were. Unless the attacks used against the Peeping Eye were weak enough, it will not survive all the sessions. Aside from the whip, other forms of weak attacks, such as the "Orb-less" use of the Dagger subweapon, may also work. If the eye dies, the mini-game can be retried by reentering the room.

    When playing as Joachim, the same applies, except there's only 1 set of skeletons to knock down. At the end, he gets a unit of Ramen the same way, if the eye survived, which gets consumed upon pick up, like all other healing items in his game mode.

    This easter egg is the only way to obtain the Ramen item at all in Leon's Normal mode (and Joachim mode). On Crazy mode, the item can also be obtained at random through the unlockable boss rush (as can be the Shortcake and the Neopolitan, also otherwise-unique food items).

  5. Infinite Ramen

    Normally, Ramen is obtained in the game through the "skeleton bowling" easter egg in the "House of Sacred Remains" area, by exactly 1 unit. However, if you decide to pick up the Ramen, but NOT finish off the Peeping Eye before leaving the room, you can get another Ramen by redoing the easter egg upon reentering the room and get rewarded with Ramen again.

    Likewise, if the Ramen appears, but the Peeping Eye is then killed off, and you skip on picking up the Ramen, redoing the easter egg will produce no reward, and the Ramen will never appear again, even though it has never been obtained.

    Essentially, the appearance of the Ramen is tied not to whether or not it's been picked up, but whether or not the Peeping Eye died after the Ramen's appearance in a given bowling session.

    Likely a game developer oversight.
