* InformedAbility: The Belmonts are supposed to be the best vampire hunters around, but you'll have a much easier time beating the game with a little girl or a high school student. The Vampire Killer is supposed to be the best weapon to use against Dracula and his minions, but you'll find high-end swords can be much better.
** [[EasyModeMockery YOU ARE JUST NOT MAN ENOUGH TO BEAT THE GAME AS RICHTER!]]
** Naturally, this only applies when ''you'' are the Belmont. Julius is easily able to prove his worth time and time again, [[CutscenePowerToTheMax as long as you aren't controlling him]], in the ''Sorrow'' series. Ditto Trevor in ''Curse of Darkness'' to an extent! He's got an edge with the different whips though.
* AnInteriorDesignerIsYou: Sorta. There's one room in ''Harmony of Dissonance'' that you can "decorate," but you can't actually move the furniture. Just acquire it.

* JamesBondage: Richter Belmont, Soleiyu/Soleil Belmont, Hugh Baldwin, Maxim Kischine, arguably Simon Belmont (a curse eroding your soul is sure gonna limit your mobility) in the spiritual sense, and Morris Baldwin in ''Circle of the Moon'' literally.

''Castlevania'' has been infrequently adapted into other media, including comic books, manga, and ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster''. A live-action ''Castlevania'' movie, which had Creator/PaulWSAnderson and Creator/JamesWan attached at different points, appears to have fallen into DevelopmentHell. A Creator/WarrenEllis-penned animated adaptation of ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaIIIDraculasCurse Dracula's Curse]]'' was in similar straits for about a decade until it was [[SavedFromDevelopmentHell rescued]] by Creator/{{Netflix}}, with [[WesternAnimation/{{Castlevania}} Part 1]] airing in July 2017.

Added DiffLines:

* CreepyCathedral: Chapels are relatively common fixture in the castle. We're never told exactly why Dracula, who has renounced God, still has a chapel in his castle.

** Referred to as [[KurtVonnegut Granfaloon]] in [=SotN's=] english translation. ''Cat's Cradle'' used the word to refer to a false grouping of people, so it makes an odd bit of metaphorical sense.
