*** The Cagnazzo soul is basically a Stand, complete with the "Ora ora ora!" shout.

to:

*** The Cagnazzo soul is basically a Stand, complete with the "Ora ora ora!" shout. Other blue souls that manifest entities to protect or assist in battle all pretty much resemble the other known stands



*** What used to simply be the [[TimeStandsStill clock]] item was turned into a colossal reference in Aria. First [[spoiler:Soma encounters an enemy with a confusing power that won't let him get near. Then he gains the ability to move through stopped time. Finally he learns to stop time himself]]. Sound familiar? The series' visual effect is even modeled after the ''[=JoJo=]'' [=OVAs=].

Sound familiar? The series' visual effect is even modeled after the ''[=JoJo=]'' [=OVAs=]. Furthermore, to extend the resemblance, in Dawn of Sorrow Soma can throw knives with a red soul during the timestop that will freeze in time as they leave his hands, exactly like Dio does it in Stardust Crusaders. This effect also turns up in Portrait of Ruin when Jonathan uses the Stopwatch and then starts throwing knives.


Added DiffLines:

*** Kyouma Demon resembles the Hanged Man Stand, and several bosses in Dawn of Sorrow utilize mirrors to escape Soma's attack, forcing him to manipulate their reflections to make them vunerable.
*** A massive Battle Tendency reference appears in the Chaos Realm in Aria, where you can encounter a Skeletal Charioteer in a room that resembles part of the Arena section of the Castle, which has quite a striking resemblance to the chariots used by Joseph and Wham in their fight.

* AvengingTheVillain: Subverted. When Soma [[spoiler:kills Dmitrii, Dario at first appears to be pissed because his comrade died, appearing to set up the trope. But he quickly reveals that he just wanted to beat Dmitrii himself]].

* SurprisinglyHappyEnding: The Castlevania saga ends not with the final destruction of Dracula, but with his redemption, the final destruction of his castle (which was the real enemy of the series, when you think about it) and a second chance for him to have a good life.

Added DiffLines:

* AlreadyUndoneForYou: Justified in ''Dawn''. Julius is running ahead of Soma, yet Soma still has to fight the bosses. Turns out Julius can't use Seals for some reason and only killed them for long enough in order to leave before they could regenerate. [[LampshadeHanging Soma isn't too convinced]], as it is impossible for the player to leave a boss room until the enemy is dead and sealed.


Added DiffLines:

* TookAShortcut: Early on ''Dawn'', Julius leaps over a drawbridge in order to enter the castle, leaving Yoko and Soma behind. Later you find out there was a switch right there to lower the bridge and he didn't have the decency of pushing it. You then come across him [[TheWorfEffect having trouble fighting Dario.]] Julius comments he had been able to kill the previous bosses despite not knowing how to use Magic Seals. Soma understandably thinks that makes no sense.

* BagOfSpilling: Justified in ''Dawn'' -- since Soma didn't have any reason to use his Power of Dominance for a long time, all of the souls he collected were released (dunno about the weapons, though). He still can slide and backdash right at the beginning, while in ''Aria'' that was done with the Gravekeeper and Skeleton Blaze souls, respectively.

to:

* BagOfSpilling: Justified Partially justified in ''Dawn'' -- since Soma didn't have any reason to use his Power of Dominance for a long time, all of the souls he collected were released (dunno about the weapons, though).- but that doesn't explain what happened to his [[InfinityPlusOneSword Claimh Solais]]. He still can slide and backdash right at the beginning, while in ''Aria'' that was done with the Gravekeeper and Skeleton Blaze souls, respectively.

In the year 2035, Soma Cruz is a seemingly OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent ([[NewTransferStudent Transfer Student]] in the English version) who gets transported to Dracula's Castle (AKA Castlevania), thought to have been sealed permanently during the [[NoodleIncident battle of 1999]], during an eclipse, along with fellow student Mina Hakuba. Also at the scene is government agent Genya Arikado ([[PaperThinDisguise he's Alucard]]), who suggests that Soma venture further into the castle to discover the secret of its reappearance. Soma contains the Power of Dominance, which allows him to [[YourSoulIsMine take the souls of his enemies]] and [[SoulPower conform them to his will]]. It is revealed later that a mad cultist named Graham Jones is behind everything and believes himself to be the reincarnation of Dracula. Obviously, he has to be stopped.
