* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZY8TGDCtXU This music]] is just... way, way, ''way'' too chipper and upbeat for a ''Castlevania'' game. The first six seconds actually sound pretty atmospheric and chilling, but after that, well... it sounds like the sort of thing you might hear in a half-assed Halloween level from a CareBears or MyLittlePony game. No, ''really''. And keep in mind that this is the BGM for ''the penultimate area of the game''. The same game that "Scarlet Battle Soul" hails from. How did they manage to forget that Castlevania music should be ''spooky''?

*** By "the night", he means the forces of darkness. But even with that context, it's still pretty ridiculous.
** Though there are those who [[NarmCharm absolutely adore that line]], largely because it's the sort of thing [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]] would say if he were a vampire hunter.



*** Although this particular line can be more easily forgiven, since it paints a more tragic outlook for the Prince of Darkness. Still, could've chosen some other lines to do this.

** The fact that there are skeletons on motorcycles in a game that takes place in the 19th century is kind of amazing.

*** Isaac usually wins these. Probably because Hector's distracted by [[spoiler:those frigging pants.]]
**** Heck, the dialogue in general for ''Curse of Darkness'' can get like this, as it tries to sound Shakespearean.

* The Pachinko games were ALWAYS a BaseBreaker at beast, or a middle finger at worst for western fans, however, the newly announced Pachinko game based on Rondo of Blood is the worst offender, from the gratuitous fanservice, to the laughable subtitle Erotic Violence. It's just too delicious to not laugh about it.

* After going on a dark and epic journey to defeat Dracula, SotN ends with [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=eLsgLtTd4Go a song that could very have well been a collaboration by Celine Dion and Kenny G.]] [[NarmCharm Cheesy]] and [[SoBadItsGood utterly cringe-inducing]] at it's finest. Let's face it, after slogging through a demonic castle (with awesome music to boot!), you weren't expecting the game to close with an ''extremely'' 90's song that could fit in any Disney movie.
