TODO: Introduce the Pacifist run
To get past this room without killing Cerberus, you must execute a floor clip, followed by a Reverse Shift Line. Doing this requires that Alucard have a Shield equipped at the start of the room or have some other way of canceling a Dash. You must also have a thrust sword, such as a Claymore, and a Heart Refresh, in your inventory.
- Clip into the floor
- Enter the room and walk right until you very nearly walk off the ledge
- Immediately shield dash and then crouch to stop yourself just under the gate as it closes on you
- Sword thrust
- Equip Claymore
- Execute a sword thrust
- Reverse Shift Line
- Equip Heart Refresh
- Dive Kick while near the right edge of the screen just before the camera locks, holding RIGHT afterward
- Immediately use Heart Refresh (this might be frame perfect), continue holding RIGHT
- Transform into Wolf as you travel into the right edge of the screen (10 frame window)
- Untransform as you move RIGHT
If successful, you should appear in the next room over and skip the fight with Cerberus.
