* BlackMagicianGirl: Female protagonists have a certain tendency to be witches ''and'' romantic interests, although Yoko Belnades from the ''Sorrow'' games subverts this by being a romantic interest for Hammer and not Soma. Averted by Shanoa, who's more of a MagicKnight.

* BroadStrokes: The Bram Stoker ''{{Dracula}}'' novel is supposedly canon with this series(at least as far as Konami says- the Stoker estate does not seem to reciprocate the idea), as evidenced by the Morris family being present. The WebVideo/AngryVideoGameNerd compared the MindScrew of putting the two canons together, as feeling like two physical cannons being set off at the same time towards each-other.

Also, Dracula's backstory, particularly his motivation of [[RageAgainstTheHeavens rebelling against God]] over losing his wife, has more in common with [[Film/BramStokersDracula Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation]] than the novel.

Added DiffLines:

* DistractedByTheSexy:
** ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin'': Charlotte isn't, but Jonathan is susceptible to a certain female boss's attack using this trope.
** Even better, there's also a demon that's distracted by ''Charlotte's'' sexy.
** ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaHarmonyOfDespair'' reverses this by having female characters be distracted by Dracula's sexy during his final form.
** Played straight again, courtesy of the female [[AncientEgypt Chapter 7 DLC boss Astarte.]] Incidentally, this is the same boss that had this effect on Jonathan in ''Portrait of Ruin''.

* FetchQuest: ''Castlevania II: Simon's Quest'' started the series' use of this trope, but ''Portrait of Ruin'' and ''Order of Ecclesia'' were {{egregious}} offenders.

* GameGourmet: From ''Symphony of the Night'' onward, you can find a much wider variety of food than the standard drumstick or pot roast in many games. SotN ''alone'' offers things like cheesecake, pudding, strawberries, spaghetti, hamburgers, apples, miso soup, and pineapples.

For over twenty years, Creator/{{Konami}} has been chronicling the adventures of the extended Belmont family and their neverending quest to rid the world of [[{{Dracula}} Count Dracula]] and his [[HauntedCastle eponymous castle]]. ''Castlevania'' (originally ''Akumajō Dracula'' -- "Demon Castle Dracula") is one of the longest-running franchises in the platformer genre, the co-inventor of {{Metroidvania}}-style gameplay, and one of the earliest adopters of [[RPGElements RPG elements in a non-RPG title]]. The series is notable for pursuing a Gothic approach to both the audio and visuals (the latter becoming more and more baroque as graphics engines advanced), and it's also respected for helping to define NintendoHard back in the day (an ideal occasionally upheld in newer entries of the series).

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Quite a bit, obviously- one worth mentioning is that Dracula's goals were always in opposition to God, even when he was known as Vald the Impaler. The real Vlad, despite murdering thousands, believed he was doing what God wanted him to do.

*** The combination of Shield Rod and Royal Shield counts as well (the real one, not the fake which has no effect). This combination lends Alucard a ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrothers''-ish Star Power affect while doing massive damage to enemies by running into them with the shield. Takes down ''bosses'' with little effort, including Drac himself.
