* In ''Order of Ecclesia'', Dracula breaks the tradition of having [[NumberOfTheBeast 6666]] HP, instead having ''9999''. 9999 is just 6666 turned upside down.

* One interpretation of the Nation of Fools portrait in ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin Portrait Of Ruin]]'' is that the ruined carnival featured is where Brauner lost his daughters in World War I. World events, however, paint another possibility. Up until 1944--the year ''Portrait Of Ruin'' takes place in--Romania had been under a fascist government that embraced Nazism between World Wars, executed up to 380,000 Jewish Romanians and 11,000 Roma (gypsies), and sent another 1.2 million Romanians to their deaths in Nazi Germany's doomed campaign against Soviet Russia. The vampire Brauner is a fictionalization of a real-life Romanian-Jewish surrealist that lived during that time. The portrait world is a gypsy carnival being destroyed from within. Its boss is Legion, a monster encased in a shell of corpses at the heart of the carnival's destruction. It's an artistic representation of what Castlevania!Brauner's seen his home country become...a Nation of Fools.

* Dominus is [[spoiler:Dracula's power]]; using it is essentially equivalent to invocating [[spoiler:the powers of Chaos itself]], explaining why it comes at [[CastFromHitPoints such a steep price]]: only [[spoiler:the Dark Lord himself can properly wield an unholy power that he gained in a [[DealWithTheDevil Deal with the Reaper]]]]. A "regular" human is doomed to [[spoiler:have their soul taken as tribute, possibly an effect of Soul Steal/the Power of Dominance]].

* What happened to Dario and Dmitrii in Julius Mode in ''Dawn''? When you fight them, they don't even talk, which is really weird given that they were part of the reason why everyone was in the castle in the first place. No one tries to reason with them. In normal mode, at least Dario yells at Soma before fighting. What did Dracula do to them? What's more, Dmitrii is arguably dead at this point, and under Soma/Dracula's dominance. Is this what happens to humans whose souls Dracula steals and enslaves? Can't talk, can only do what Dracula says?
* The Power of Dominance is full of horror if you think about it. What exactly could someone do with the power to enslave someone's soul and force them to do anything?

* Also within ''[[CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin Portrait Of Ruin]]'', we have how you first meet the Sisters and Brauner. You first meet Loretta in the City of Haze after destroying Dullahan, and you meet Brauner and the Sisters in the Sandy Grave Portrait. And yet both times, they seem to check up on the state of things or seem outright surprised to see Johnathan and Charlotte there. Why is this? [[spoiler: In the Sisters Mode, which serves as a prologue to Charlotte and Johanthan's story, you were required to go through the paintings and destroy the same bosses that Johnathan and Charlotte fight. Each boss destroyed weakens Brauner's hold on the castle. Sadly, when the Sisters get to Brauner, it's here that they get turned into Vampires and brainwashed. The reason they were probably checking up/surprised to see Johnathan and Charlotte within the portraits is because Brauner is fixing the damages the Sisters did and making sure they uphold, reestablishing his hold on the castle by bringing the previously destroyed bosses back.]]

** This also explains how the "perfect replica" castle in Dawn of Sorrow was created; the cult just made a new Crimson Stone to be a new Chaos. (which lends a whole new meaning to their grooming Dracula candidates, since ''someone'' would eventually need to be sacrificed to power it)
