* NoFairCheating: The first stage closely resembles the first stage of the original ''Castlevania''. Thus, you might know exactly where the wall meat is hidden. Nope, it's been moved. In its place, how about an infinite supply of [[GoddamnedBats fleamen]]?

* TearsFromAStone: A large statue produces TearsOfBlood. They turn into [[InvincibleMinorMinion red skeletons]], too. Guess what [[VisualPun BGM plays in that stage]] (which is stage 4 by the way)?
* ToyTime: Stage 6 is the Tower of Dolls and Mirrors, where toys come to life and attack you.
* VideoGameRemake: This is the remake of the original VideoGame/CastlevaniaI, similar how VideoGame/SuperCastlevaniaIV is.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything:
** Each NewGamePlus tweaks the obstacles you face. For example, by the second loop, the black panthers in Dracula's Castle can jump at will, and the ninja maids can [[RollingAttack roll at you]] ala [[Franchise/StreetFighter Blanka]]. By the third loop, the animated patrol armors get aggressive when you occupy the same platform as them.
** Also see NoFairCheating below.
