* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Into a bat, a wolf and a mist form.

to:

* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Into Alucard can transform into 3 different forms:
** He can turn into
a bat, wolf. That form is mostly use for fast travel in corridors once you get the adequate relics, as it doesn't have a wolf good standard attack on its own.
** He can turn into mist. In that form, Alucard is invincible, allowing him to safely evade attacks. This form is necessary in order to access some areas, including the one in which you get the Bat Form relic.
** He can turn into a bat. That form allows him to fly, unlocking a lot of areas which were unattainable without it. The bat form can spit fire
and use a mist form.
sonar, allowing Alucard to see in the dark. This form is rather slow, and it is better to use the Rocket Boots to travel vertically.

Added DiffLines:

* LightningBruiser: Alucard is easily the most powerful playable character of the franchise. He possesses unique and powerful equipment, can use a huge variety of weapons and their associated special attacks, has access to all of his spells from the get-go (including the very powerful Soul Steal), can use subweapons just like the Belmonts, can take the form of a wolf, a bat or become mist (and he is invulnerable as long as he is in his mist form), is assisted by numerous familiars and he can heal himself against any bleeding opponent thanks to Dark Metamorphosis. He also defeated his father, Dracula, all by himself, without the power of the Vampire Killer. It is a good thing for the Belmont family that he is on the side of Good, as humanity would certainly be screwed otherwise. His only drawback is the rather massive knockback he suffers from any attack that hits him.

* AscendedExtra, BreakoutCharacter: In ''Dracula's Curse'', Alucard's introduction was widely overlooked, mostly due to his generic look and a very limited, somewhat mediocre set of abilities. However, when Alucard was brought back eight years later in ''Symphony of the Night'' with a new appearance and some nifty new tricks under his belt, Alucard's popularity skyrocketed to the point that he became just as synonymous with the franchise as its chief family of protagonists and their mortal enemies (if not ''moreso''), with his prominence within canon shifting to reflect these changes. It doesn't hurt that Alucard is [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld practically]] [[{{Immortality}} immortal]], making him the sole recurring hero with the best chance of reappearing in a ''Castlevania'' should the circumstances call for it.

* NotSoStoic: While he is usually TheStoic, there are times where Alucard reacted in surprise or in outright panic, such as in the "Nightmare" level in which the Succubus posed as his mother about to get burned on the stake. Once the deception falls apart, Alucard is genuinely angry.
