* Near the end of the game, you get to fight, of course, Death. While Death is almost always a combination of [[ThatOneBoss hard]] and awesome, depending on your glyphs, you can make this battle symbolically awesome too. This is the only game in the series where the main character can wield, through Shanoa's use of the ''Falcis'' line of glyphs, a [[SinisterScythe scythe.]] In fact, the ''Falcis'' glyphs are the strongest physical attacking glyphs in the game. So, to recap, Death uses a scythe. Shanoa's strongest weapon is a scythe. And you can get the strongest scythe before this battle. That's right, you can beat Death ''in a scythe battle.''

* [[BackgroundBoss Balore]]. You enter the boss room in the arena level and is greeted by the Giant Bat, a standard boss in ''VideoGame/{{Castlevania|I}}''. Suddenly a GIANT HAND comes out of nowhere and crushes the bat, and an EvilLaugh is heard as Balore fades in from the background while a different boss battle music starts to play. Totally unexpected and an epic boss battle.

** ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaBloodlines Bloodlines]]'': First his basic form, then a sort of fireball-throwing magician, and then a demon with a face on his torso, {{Devilman}}-style. This "second form" isn't actually Drac; it's really his WickedWitch [[TheDragon Dragon]] (well, for ''Bloodlines'', anyway). The English version erroneously labeled this separate character as Dracula. Same thing in that game with the Dark Lord's [[DaddysLittleVillain niece]], [[DarkChick Elizabeth Bartley]], who [[SummonMagic summons]] Medusa but doesn't actually ''become'' her.

* The Dracula battle is pretty awesome... if just because he's ThatOneBoss ''without ever going OneWingedAngel,'' unlike almost every other game in the series and every {{Metroidvania}} ever.

* Blackmore. This guy greets you smarmily, before fighting you with his own '''gigantic shadow'''. And this shadow is shaped like a '''WOLF'''. Blackmore controlls the wolf-shadow by dancing and likes to use this big black laser move on you. By now you have Nitesco, a very effective glyph that also manifests as a laser. Mega-awesome laser fight ensues.

* Just like ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'''s Ridley, Death in many installments manages to be ThatOneBoss and BestBossEver in many of the games he's in.

* Bat Company. A twist on the usual "bunch of little bats join to form one big bat" in which the group of bats are still a group of bats, and change shape constantly. Fitting that it's fought in a [[ContinuityNod throwback level]] that's a homage to the original ''VideoGame/{{Castlevania|1986}}'', where the boss was a giant bat.

* The final battle against Dracula in both Alucard's and Trevor's routes of Mirror of Fate, the music seems to accent your attacks perfectly and Dracula himself is on the perfect level of Challenging VS Impossible
