Very certain that The Count isn't on par with the likes of Vanargand.

The boss of that dungeon, Nidhoggr, appears to stop Django from using the ship to get to the moon, and the first phase of the ensuing boss fight utilizes the ship's armaments to take down the Nidhoggr machine.

''Bokura no Taiyō'' ("Our Sun") in Japan, ''Boktai'' is an action RPG series produced by Creator/HideoKojima. Django is a boy hoping to follow in the footsteps of his disappeared father, Ringo, as a vampire hunter. With his (not-so; see below) trusty Gun Del Sol and the sun spirit Otenko by his side, he takes on zombies, demonic dogs, vampires, and Norse mythology-derived what have you.

Added DiffLines:
* NoExportForYou: The third game was never released outside of Japan. Furthermore, Lunar Knight's crossover with Megaman Star Force was also removed from the western releases of both games.

* DivorcedInstallment: After skipping ''Boktai 3'' for international release, Konami decided to distance the fourth game from the franchise by marketing it outside Japan as an unrelated game.

* NoExportForYou: ''Boktai 3'' was briefly listed on Kojima Productions' English website as ''[[StoppedNumberingSequels Boktai: Sabata's Counterattack]]'', but ultimately remained a Japan-exclusive release. ** This is also applied to a ''Boktai 3''-related sidequest in ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork 6'' that had [=MegaMan=] spanning the [[DerelictGraveyard Graveyard]] area at the end of the Undernet. Not only was the sidequest removed, several of the areas the player had to traverse were removed wholesale from the game's code and certain items were relocated and downgraded - which left players wondering why Bass, who has nothing whatsoever to do with bats, was left holding the "Bat Key"? And why was the prize so darn lackluster? ** The Japanese versions of ''Lunar Knights'' and ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' could link up and unlock bonuses in each others' games (including a new Terrennial in ''Lunar Knights''), but despite the fact both were localized English, they can no longer link up. You can still get the bonus cards in ''Star Force'' through Action Replay, but it's a bit buggy. The data for the Terrennial was completely removed, though.
