Simon is a Vampire Hunter who comes from the renowned Belmont Clan. Blessed with tremendous strength, he wields the holy flail, the Vampire Killer, to vanquish evil. The Belmont Clan is responsible for fighting Dracula and his minions whenever he surfaces. Simon is one of the more famed Belmont’s and his held in high esteemed by those who came after him. He was once cursed by Dracula resulting in him having to heal himself of his affliction.

Simon wields the Vampire Killer in combat which gives him unprecedented striking range with some of his Smash attacks being the longest in the game. As a result, he has a severely disjointed hitbox. In addition to the flail, he also uses a variety of powerful projectiles such as the Cross, Axe, and Holy Water for extra options. He shares many moves and attacks with his Echo fighter, Richter Belmont.

Classic Mode: Smash-vania
Simon fights monstrous characters that reference the beasts he battles in the Castlevania games.
