* HeyItsThatVoice:
** [[Creator/RobertCarlyle Dr. Nicholas Rush]] voices Gabriel.
*** In the Japanese version, he's also [[Creator/KeijiFujiwara SIGINT]].
** [[Creator/PatrickStewart Pharaoh Seti]] arrives to offer advice as Zobek.
** [[Creator/JasonIsaacs Lucifel]] is, ironically enough, ArchangelLucifer in this universe.
** [[Creator/AkioOhtsuka Solid Snake]] jumps franchises to voice Pan in the Japanese dub.
** As of a joke of sorts, the Japanese Chupacabra is none other than Creator/HideoKojima, the man behind the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series.

* DawsonCasting: Robert Carlyle who was forty-nine back in 2010 did the voice-work for Gabriel, who's presumptively in his late twenties or early thirties. This trope also applies to his ''seiyuu'', Keiji Fujiwara, who was forty-six at the time of the recording.
* DuelingWorks: An odd, in-franchise instance. To not complete with/detract from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaJudgment'' sales, ''Lords of Shadow'' was first unveiled as a standalone flagship IP before it became an official ''Castlevania'' title.

** [[TheFullMonty Gaz]] is Gabriel. Oh, and he used to be [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Hitler]]. '''HEIL GABRIEL!'''
*** He certainly has quite a lot of experience [[Series/OnceUponATime losing his own family]] and [[spoiler:becoming a monster of his own making]]. This is very noticeable when he's in Scottish accent mode as Gabriel.
*** In Japan, Gabriel is [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Ali Al-Saachez]].
*** Or [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Belldandy]].
*** So is [[Creator/TomokazuSugita Kyon]].
** In Japan, Pan is [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Anavel Gato]] and [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Snake]], but ironically takes the role of [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Grey Fox]] in this game.
** [[Series/GameOfThrones Robb Stark]] is Trevor.
** As of a joke of sorts, the Japanese Chupacabra is none other than HideoKojima, the man behind the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series.
* IKnewIt: Many fans were speculating [[spoiler: Gabriel would become Dracula]] ''before the game was even out.''

series.


Added DiffLines:

* SavedFromDevelopmentHell: Back in November 2007, Konami's executives nearly scratched the entire game as they did not like its distinctly different[=/=]DarkerAndEdgier direction. The production was preserved by one of the game's producers, David Cox, who said he'd fly over to Konami's [=USHQ=] to show them the tech-demo his team had created. After skimming through the newest progress reports the head executives decided to continue production, and even granted the developers greater creative freedom as well as Creator/HideoKojima[='s=] advice which led to the complete overhaul of title's protagonist.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** The original pitch video for the title starred Simon Belmont as the game's protagonist.
*** Originally, Gabriel's design resembled that of a classical IneffectualLoner BarbarianHero before Hideo Kojima insisted they change him to a KnightInShiningArmor.
** Creator/IanMcKellen would have been the one to voice Zobek, but his busy schedule could not allow it.
** Claudia was a RavenHairIvorySkin kind of gal before she became a HairOfGoldHeartOfGold.

* RecycledScript: To another Konami franchise: A noble warrior and member of a large heroic organization is sent on a quest to stop a possible world-ending scenario. The loss of a close female character is factored into said quest, which turns out to be part of a conspiracy orchestrated by the hero's organization, his learning of which later factored into the hero's eventual fall from grace and into villainy. Who are we talking about, Gabriel Belmont/[[spoiler:Dracula]] or [[MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater Naked Snake]]/[[MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain Big Boss]]?[[note]]Then again, Hideo Kojima was involved with this game...[[/note]]
