Castlevania: Harmony of Despair
|Heaven Sword Bladestorm ||100%|
| Description: Unlike other weapons, Alucard's Heaven Sword can only do a magic strike (DOWN, TOWARDS, ATTACK) when a 2nd Heaven Sword is equipped. The Heaven Sword is found from the boss' gold chest in Chapter 3, Normal.|
|Alucard's Double Jump Boost ||100%|
| Description: Some of the ledges that are just out of reach with a double jump (or even a double jump with a jumpkick across a wide chasm) can be reached with Alucard's mist ability. You do not get much distance, but it can make the difference in tight situations.|
For example, you can use this exploit to reach the secret room at the very top of the map in stage 6. This will let you get an extra item when playing alone.
|Food Stats Bonus Is Temporary ||100%|
| Description: Pre-set food items in the levels will increase your character's stats (STR, CON, INT, MND, LCK, etc.) when consumed at full (or nearly full) health, but only lasting until you get another food item or finish the current chapter. In other words, the stats bonus from food items is only temporary.|
|Charlotte's Magic List ||100%|
| Description: To absorb magic shots, hold Charlotte's Personal Skill button (creates the magic shield). Any shot hitting this shield bounces off or is absorbed. When absorbed, there is a chance the projectile is turned into an item she can equip in the sub-weapon (Hunter Skill) menu.|
The number spells absorbed will increase the output potency of Charlotte's spells (more damage, etc.) & can be tracked by the green energy meter in the Offensive Equipment menu.

|Stage 5 Clock Hand Phases ||100%|

The hour and minute hands will be spectral if they are between the hours of 10 and 2, and 4 to 8 (in minute terms, between 00:50 and 00:10, and 00:20 and 00:40).
Between the hours of 2 and 4, and 8 to 10 (or in minute terms 00:10 and 00:20, and 00:40 and 00:50), the hands will be solid, and can be used as ledges to reach higher areas of the stage.
|Water of Life Limit ||100%|

|Charlotte and Jonathon's Dance Moves [Easter Egg] ||100%|
| How to: Hold UP while playing as Jonathan or Charlotte and they'll perform hidden moves.|
|Alucard Air Hover ||98%|
| How to: Just a small tactic that no other character can do, but Alucard can loiter in the air for a 2nd or 2 more by assuming mist-form. While mist may not last as long as you need for some attacks on hard difficulty, you can use mist to stay in the air longer than some other characters (without relying on a particular skill or weapon) by using mist-form correctly.|
|High jump ||98%|
| You can use your partner to reach high platforms. Simply perform a jump kick off of a partner's head while they are remaining still. You will get extra height from the bounce. *** Charlotte cannot jump kick.|
|Soma's Yorick Jump ||98%|
| Description: Soma Cruz can catch some serious air with the Yorick soul. Throw the head and downward kick several times on the head to gain height -- about 4 times a normal jump.|
|Skeleton Power : J/K ||98%|
| How to: Players who are killed & turned into skeletons are liabilities. If skeleton players die, 2 minutes are docked from each of their deaths (with five characters, this is 10 minutes).|
If you are turned into a skeleton and no one revives you, do not hamper your team by dying. Stay away from the boss and other damage sources.
|Multiple Water of Life Chests ||98%|
| Description: It is possible to gain multiple bottles of Water of Life from the blue chests you encounter throughout the game.|
How to: You just need to get the timing right when you press the Right Trigger to open the chest. If 2 or more players can all pull this off at the same time, you will be able to retrieve multiple Water of Life bottles from one chest. This is particularly handy for when playing on Hard mode, when people are more likely to be killed in boss fights or in some cases on the way to the boss fights.
|Shanoa & Johnathan's Double Jump Boost ||98%|
| Description: Some ledges are just a little bit out of reach even for a double jump. Shanoa and Johnathan can reach these areas by performing a double jump with a jump kick toward the ledge at the apex of the jump. The animation for the kick makes the sprite smaller, but you will still be at the same height during your jump so your feet will land on the ledge. This may work for any character with a double jump and jump kick. Try it!|
See also the cheat Alucard's Double Jump Boost for even longer jumps.
|Xbox Live Gamerpics ||98%|
| Description: Perform the following actions to unlock Xbox Live Gamerpics.|
Soma is unlocked when you launch the game for the 1st time.
The mug for Alucard is available when you complete stage 6 in single-player mode (this is to allow the credits to run in co-op online then the game goes back to the lobby).
|Pillar of Bone Boost ||98%|
| How to: Do not destroy all the pillars of bone in a stage. You can step on top of them and use them as ledges to reach higher places. You need a minimum of 2 or 3 skulls to reach high areas and most characters can clear 4 skull-high towers.|
|Two Player Boost Up ||98%|
| How to: If you need to reach a platform you can not quite make with a double jump, do a jumpkick off of your teammate's head (they need to be standing completely still) and you will be able to get extra height from the bounce. Note that Charlotte is the only character who cannot jump kick.|
|Long-hair Albino Half-Vampire Needs Food Badly ||91%|
| Description: Pre-set food items in the levels will increase your character's core stats (STR, CON, INT, MND, LCK, etc.) when consumed at full (or nearly full) health. Since these increases are permanent, it would be to your advantage to eat all the food you can find (and not get hit) while exploring the castle.|
