This is direct quote from an e-mail I recieved from firstname.lastname@example.org. Obviously this works, but I haven't tryed it myslef so I can't confirm the accuracy of the description.
I was doing the "atop the three walls" glitch on your site, though I went the opposite direction. When I tried to enter it normally, it acted like I was going through, but I ended up back where I was. Eventually, I did the succubus glitch to get to the room before the paranoia boss room and I went off map. I left and came back, and I had stopped flying on the map.. I went back using the black panther soul. And I saw something faint go across the bottom screen. Soma turned transparent and appeared to be stuck level with the floor level with the door to the paranoia boss fight. I was wondering if this was a new glitch or not. Also, weapons and souls don't make noise. In fact, the graphics for either of them don't even show up. I took pictures of it, in case it was a new glitch. That was my first time taking pictures of my ds...so they may be poor quality. but you can tell soma is transparent. I hope this isn't old. if it is, I'm sorry.
You know the unconfirmed glitch on your dawn of sorrow site? Well just to let you know, I did that glitch today. Except I did it in the Mine of Judgement in the room that connects to the room with the warp. Soma sped around the map. When he came back to the screen he was transparent. He could go through walls and doors but the screen wouldn't change. He could only use his fists, too. Also, when I pressed the X button, the screen moved upards no matter where Soma was on the map.
The Succubus Glitch combo is more than just a way to transport yourself from place to place... it can also be used as a major healing aid! I call it the S.I.S. (Semi-Immortal Succubus) Glitch. The way it works is like this: You perform the first two steps of the Succubus Glitch...
- Activate the Succubus soul, then... - With your Cinquedia / Katar weapon, use the Special Attack.
Now stop at that step. You'll have the red Succubus aura glowing around you. It lasts for only 3-5 seconds, so work fast! When you walk into an enemy, they will take the Succubus damage, it will heal you in the process, and the best part of this is this process makes you invincible for those few seconds! This glitch has two major flaws, though.
1) You can only move sideways during the glitch. If you jump, backdash, Hippogryph, slide, or use any soul (except Black Panther) in that time, the glitch will cancel itself out.
2) The damage is normally done once the Succubus aura dissipates, as if you had normally used the Succubus soul to attack something. But sometimes the damage is done instantly, and sometimes not at all.
Difficulty: MEDIUM - HARD . . . when I did this glitch, it still only worked about 50% of the time. But once you begin to master it, the results really show.

If you're still having problems after reading this guide go to the downloads section for movies. Most glitches are fairly straight forward but it may be easier to see them done by me. As a final note, all glitches listed on this page have been tested and are proven to work.
The game can be reset by pressing Select + Start + L + R if things go wrong. Make sure you don't go too far outside of the level or you can't reset because the game will freeze!
*The following move might freeze up the game and modify the data, so I recommend you do this on a Copy Save.*
To make this work, you will need Soul 86 from Succubus and a dagger weapon like Katar (カタール) or Cinquedea (チンクエディア) with a back-stabbing special attack.
To try this, stand facing a wall on the edge of any room. Activate the Succubus Soul. As Soma raises arm in the hug motion, quickly do a Special Attack from the equipped dagger, then do 3x Normal Attacks with the same dagger weapon, then finish with another Special Attack.
If done correctly, Soma should be bumped off the screen. You will be unable to move around but if you have the minimap on, you should see the locator warping from the bottom to top. If you try a slide kick, you should be able to move the locator around on the minimap. Like mentioned above, this tends to freeze up the game if you're unlucky, so remember to save your game first and make a Copy Save. To get out of this, simply Sleep and resume the game, but be warned as this doesn't always work and you'll find Soma endlessly warping in the limbo.
If lucky, you will be able to increase the map rate above 150% and gain some interesting Souls, Abilities and Weapons. You should be able to spend some good hours experimenting. Enjoy.

Below are some screen shots of some of the movies at actual size.
Souls can be transferred between different versions of the game. I transferred souls using the Japanese and PAL versions. If you transfer souls of enemies that you've not killed before they won't show up on your enemy list.
You can also play the versus mode using different region games as well :)

Mandragora (x2 only)

This is an updated version originally taken from "Gwimmel" on the GameFAQs message boards.
There is a time limit of 4"30 on the glitch so I suggest you use a stop watch or timer.
Do the glitch as you normally would in the first save point in the abyss. Once you're inside the wall press Down + Jump ONCE to do a slide. Watch the bottom screen for flickers, the screen moving or shaking and every time it does do a slide. Repeat this until you end up near to the area shown on the map below. I suggest you go a extra one or two slides further just to make sure.
When you've been inside the wall for 4"30 you sill stop flying on the map. All you need to do now is hold left AND NOTHING ELSE until you fall back into the level. Once you're back in the level press Start and access the Config menu. Select default then exit back in to the game. Go back in to the save room and then press Start again and access the Equip menu and check your equipment and souls.
Finally you should have just about every weapon, item and soul in the entire game. This includes Alucard's Sword, Easter Egg items and the legendary Vampire Killer used by Julius Belmont. If you're very lucky all your souls should be levelled up beyond their maximum.
Below is a list of the Julius Mode souls you'll get;
Alucard's Soul of Bat (5)
Hell Fire (30)
Julius' Holy Cross (80)
Julius' Holy Water (20)
Julius' Throwing Cross (25)
Yoko's Fire Attack (20)
Yoko's Ice Attack (30)
Yoko's Lightning Attack (80)
