Enter the Maria boss area with the axe sub-weapon and go down the left side of the chamber. Stand under the left corner of the center boss room and throw a few axes. This will knock Maria out of her spot and into the outer area of the chamber. Hit her a few more times to knock her further to the right; being careful not to step on the elevator platform in the enter. Now fly over the center room to the right side of the area and use your best weapon to slash at her--while she stands there doing nothing.

You must be careful where she ends up when she dies or the game might get stuck. If she dies on the elevator platform in the center, then you won't be able to get the holy glasses--because when you step on the platform her battle will start; and never end. And if she dies too far to the right or left of her actual boss room; her battle will never happen but Alucard will run towards whichever side she is on, to pick up the holy glasses and he will keep running forever.

So, if she dies close to the center platform, you just go up into the center room and listen to her dialogue & you will get the glasses. And sometimes Alucard's picture will be missing from some sentences. Furthermore, If you manage to get the duplicator & power of sire before getting the holy glasses (or skipping Richter<--for the glitchers); you get a bonus glitch!

Using the power of sire on Maria will turn the weapon into a mega-power of sire, with huge yellow energy balls. Unfortunately, this graphical effect doesn't make the power of sire do more damage; and it goes away after you exit the game. Also, it has to be equipped to the left hand (circle). It's also an easier way to knock Maria out of her room.

I put a video of mega-power of sire in the Ghostly Theater.

But you must be careful, skipping Richter with the wolf jump tech will change what happens in the Maria boss room. If you go there after doing the "skip Richter" glitch (without getting the holy glasses); Maria will not be there--so you will never be able to get them.


In the other versions of the game, Maria is always waiting for you down there; no matter what.

You would have to use the wolf glitch on the slanted area above the secret staircase; then fly high enough so you don't trigger the Dialogue; then use the wolf squeeze tech to get back inside the teleporter area.

aw that is just plain dirty.

Would be useful for a speed run, but for a Boss Hunt run, I'd expect people to fight it out, the American Way. :wink:
