While using the whip hold down the attack button to make it spin round in a circle. This will prevent small enemies from hitting you but you cannot move while performing this attack.
Defeat Dragon Zombies
An easy way to defeat the Dragon Zombies is to jump up to the platform by the door where you entered whenever you get hurt and activate the Jupiter + Mandragora DSS combo to heal yourself. Just watch out for the occasional fireball which may come your way.
To defeat Death easily activate the Jupiter + Manticore DSS combo. This prevents his sickles from hitting you.
