In Harmony of Despair
In this game Julius is one of the many characters to use the Vampire Killer as such he shares many of the same abilities but the main difference is the ability to whip in 8 directions and use the same magnets Shanoa could use to reach different spots.
Julius mode as its name suggest is a spacial mode were the player can use Julius Belmont as the main character instead of Soma Cruz, the are some key differences in this mode however, in Aria of Sorrow this mode can be access after the player beats the game and starts a new profile with the name "JULIUS", the is no story in this mode as Julius will star the game with all the abilities to go anywhere in the castle however he cannot equip, use any items or level up, he also has a fix HP, the only way to make Julius stronger is defeating all the bosses in order, this is not required but later parts of the game will be almost impossible if the player decides to go directly to them.
In Dawn of Sorrow Julius mode has a nice what if feeling to it, to access this mode the player most obtain either the Bad or True ending, this time there is a story and continues from the Bad ending where Soma becomes the new Dark Lord, like the past game Julius cannot equip any item or use them however he is able to gain levels, there is also a homage to Castlevania III as Julius can recruit Yoko Belnades as well as Alucard to help him, Yoko fight very similar to Sypha Belnades and Alucard will fight the same way he was in Symphony of The Night, as a little touch whichever character faces Soma in the end he will have a unique line to say as well as Soma's response.
