* ''CastlevaniaDawnOfSorrow'' features a horrific boss named Gergoth that was apparently chained in captivity for thousands of years in a tower. It looks like a half-rotten dinosaur, with exposed ribs and skin on its face that peels off when it's making an attack. You fight it, seeing its rotten flesh and dripping blood further emphasizing its cursed existence. Made even more disturbing when you read the text in the bestiary and find out it was [[GoMadFromTheIsolation once gentle, but was driven insane by years of imprisonment.]]

** In [[CastlevaniaDawnOfSorrow Dawn of Sorrow]], there's a really creepy underwater Homunculus enemy. It just sits there until you approach it. Then, it starts thrashing wildly and trying to chase and kill you, while attached to this tube thing that gives it oxygen. That's not the worst part, though. If you don't kill the guy, he'll still follow you. Eventually, if you wander far enough from its spawn point, the tube will stretch too far and pop off the creature's back. The creature will be reduced to spending the last parts of its life thrashing and chasing you and turning purple as it slowly drowns to death.

* The [[spoiler:Chaotic Realm]] from [[CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow Aria of Sorrow]]: no map to check where you are, balconies that lead to some [[BuffySpeak floaty-void-space-thingy]], the entire area itself being composed of [[ChaosArchitecture glitchy, monochrome versions of absolutely random parts of the castle]] (even if it means you're in a dry room, and the next one is submerged). And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZZpsNpisyA the music]] just seems to make it worse.

** The Blood of the Castle is a very disturbing form of corruption that proves that not only is the Castle now a GenuisLoci, it's ''very'' angry and wants to kill you. Standard fare for possessing something is to wait until they prove their intentions are to help Dracula, then a giant clawed hand shoots out of a pool of blood and drags them downward, they re-emerge a moment later possessed by the Blood. This is a force with so much hatred in it that even Dracula's servants who have held UndyingLoyalty for nigh-on a millennia are turned into his enemies in a matter of seconds.

** Even worse, the Legion in this version has a fetus inside a cage as a core. This is pretty morbid and unusual for you to find in Castlevania, much more morbid than it's previous incarnations and Beelzebub himself. And the Legion here, with all parts of shell still intact, resembles a baby that is being viewed through a sonogram. Makes you wonder what happened to the fetus. This is Silent Hill grade horror.

** The buildup to the boss can be scary as well. It doesn't seem to help that the area in which the boss is located is called "The Prison of Eternal Torture", and that you hear a horrifyingly loud, monstrous breathing while you descend the staircase, that only keeps getting louder and louder the further you go. And then you reach a room where the breathing has gotten extremely loud, and there just happens to be blood smeared on the walls and floor. Granted, the main level itself is creepy enough with the high-pitched sound of wailing women as background music.

* ''[[CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia Order Of Ecclesia]]'' keeps its horror modern by adding a new monster based on [[TheRing Sadako]]. It appears out of nowhere when you get close enough. Anyone who's seen the movie gets a ''serious'' jolt the first time this happens.

* ''Castlevania64'' had The Gardener, a giant, unstoppable Frankenstein's monster armed with a chainsaw that chases you around a hedge maze that you do not know how to get out of. Attacking him enough times stops him for a second before he gets back up and starts chasing you again. And he has no introduction, he just suddenly turns the corner and attacks you. * Also in 64, there's the rose garden. Reinhardt walks into the room and the vampire Rosa is watering roses. She comments how she just waters the white roses. Reinhardt, with a confused look on his face realizes just as the player does that the roses are obviously red. Then the camera zooms into the water pail and you see that Rosa is watering the flowers with ''blood'', and that it has stained them red.

* Those pallid, constantly-grasping hands in the pits, from ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaTheDraculaXChronicles Dracula X Chronicles]]'' (and perhaps Rondo of Blood as well). Should Richter be unlucky enough to fall/get knocked into them, they grab him and drag him down, their perpetual moaning becoming... something else -- and a few seconds later, Richter dies horribly. Since those damn demon hands dragged him offscreen, ''how'' is left to the imagination.

* ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaTheDraculaXChronicles The Dracula X Chronicles]]'': Fail to rescue [[spoiler:Annette]] properly, and she is turned into a vampire, whom you must fight. Let me rephrase this: [[spoiler:[[TearJerker ''Richter is forced to fight his loved-one-turned-enemy-vampire to the death.'']]]]

** Shaft. He [[BrainwashedAndCrazy gets into Richter's brain]], which can be horrifically [[ParanoiaFuel paranoia-inducing]]. ''Dracula X Chronicles'' makes it worse. Look at his hands in the opening cinema, and just try not to shiver convulsively.

No problem, there's a switch. You hit it with your whip, hear an ear-splitting shriek, and the room starts filling up with pink liquid. You stay on this rising platform, avoiding spiked platforms, and eventually make it to the top. [[spoiler:You look to your left, and see a giant green monster arm crushed under a spiked platform. That pink liquid? It's the monster's blood. You ''drain a monster's blood'' to get up a shaft. The arm is disconnected and you never see who it belonged to.]] [[note]]However, it's only an illusion. If you neglect the corridor and come back later to ascend without hitting the switch via Griffon's Wing, you'll see the monster is already dead.[[/note]]
