The crucifix (referred to as the Latin "crux" in game)(alternatively known as a cross) is a representation of Jesus crucified on the cross, a principal symbol in Christianity. In the FAITH series, it is John Ward's most powerful "weapon". Pressing the action button will cause John to lift the cross in his facing direction. This action can be used to ward off demonic entities and spirits that attack John throughout the game series. Father Garcia also briefly uses a crucifix in the prologue of Faith: Chapter II .
- John's crucifix was originally golden in the first chapter of FAITH, however in the demo of the second game (Faith: Chapter II Demo) the cross had a white color instead of a gold-ish color for unknown reasons.
- Several crucifixes can be found hanging on a wall in the back of the Snake Meadow Hill Church. As john approaches them, one falls ominously off the wall, followed soon by the rest of them.
