** "EROTIC VIOLENCE," [[labelnote:Explanation]]a phrase used to promote the 2015 pachinko game is adopted by fans to mock the game for seeming to pander to the PerverseSexualLust crowd. It is also used to criticise Konami for not developing any "real" games since the ''Lords of Shadow'' saga, which was polarising anyway. [[/labelnote]]

** Stairs are a vampire hunter's worst enemy. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the classic games, your character moves slowly on stairs, can't always jump off (or it's risky to do so), can't attack, and can fall through stairs trying to jump onto them.[[/labelnote]]
** Medusa Heads cause fears of sine waves.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Medusa Heads are enemies that move in sine waves across the screen and have a strong tendency to knock the player around, [[DemonicSpiders often into a bottomless pit]].[[/labelnote]]

[[labelnote:Explanation]]In the classic games, your character moves slowly on stairs, can't always jump off (or it's risky to do so), can't attack, and can fall through stairs trying to jump onto them. A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ROJT7A3ClY ROM Hack]] based entirely around Castlevania stairs was made to examine this phenomenon.[[/labelnote]]
** Medusa Heads cause fears of sine waves.Heads.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Medusa Heads are enemies that move in sine waves across the screen and have a strong tendency to knock the player around, [[DemonicSpiders often into a bottomless pit]]. In some games they can petrify the player and make them take additional damage from enemies as well as preventing them from moving, usually in [[PlatformHell areas with rotating or falling platforms]].[[/labelnote]]

* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIISimonsQuest'':
** GET A SILK BAG FROM THE GRAVEYARD DUCK TO LIVE LONGER. [[labelnote:Explanation]]''Simon's Quest'' has a number of villagers who, through either design intent or mistranslation, often have incredibly useless information. This is a key example, and yes; the dialogue really is referring to the bird. This one is intentional. The manual states the villagers mislead you to prevent you from completing your quest and reviving Dracula. The original Japanese really did refer to a waterfowl.[[/labelnote]]
** What a horrible night to have a curse. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The text whenever the sun sets. Very slow.[[/labelnote]]
** Hit Deborah Cliff with your head to make a hole. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another example.[[/labelnote]]

** The wine glass[[labelnote:explanation]]In some games, Dracula begins the fight by first drinking from his wine glass and then tossing it.[[/labelnote]].
*** This is referenced not just in series: ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'', as mentioned, parodies this (by turning the wine glass lethal), and when Koji Igarasi[[note]]Castlevania's most famous head-honcho, particularly famous for introducing MetroidVania[[/note]] promotes his upcoming game, ''VideoGame/BloodstainedRitualOfTheNight'', even he can't resist throwing a wine glass! (and that's not all; early drafts of that game mentioned that the game's heroine would ''also'' get to throw a wine glass as an ability!)

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qY19dl4dcLM "Hmm! Hmm! Hoi!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]This is how Maxim's grunts sounds like. Due to a certain tool-assisted speedrun of Maxim mode, they became synonymous with glitching through and inside walls within the nicovideo TAS community.[[/labelnote]]

** "As you can see, this is a PlayStation black disc. Cut number 1 contains computer data, so please don't play it... but you probably won't listen to me anyway, will you?" (secret music track plays) [[labelnote:Explanation]]This track plays when the someone tries to play the disc in a regular CD player and the part about computer data refers to the fact that older CD players, not knowing how to handle data on a CD that isn't Red Book audio, would screw up when trying to play data for a computer or game console. (It's supposed to be Alucard delivering the message.)[[/labelnote]]
