* TheAntiGod: [[spoiler:Chaos fits the bill, as well. It's literally the very source of Dracula's immense power, and can choose other Dark Lords to replace him if necessary. Helps that it's a full-blown EldritchAbomination, too.]]

* TheAntiGod: [[spoiler:Chaos fits ''Dawn'' elucidates the bill, as well. It's literally idea—first indicated in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLamentOfInnocence''—that Dracula (or whoever holds the very source of Dracula's immense power, and can choose other Dark Lords Lord title) is the foremost figure opposed to replace him if necessary. Helps that it's a full-blown EldritchAbomination, too.]]God in this series, replacing the traditional role of Lucifer/Satan/the Devil.


Added DiffLines:

* CutAndPasteTranslation: Whereas ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' localized all voices used by characters and enemies during the in-game action, and both ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaHarmonyOfDissonance'' and ''Aria'' simply left them in Japanese, the English version of ''Dawn'' actually removed the vast majority of voice clips, replacing them with generic grunts or just nothing at all.


Added DiffLines:

** This is only an issue if you play ''Aria'' on a Nintendo DS, due to the way the Game Boy Advances's A and B buttons translate to different positions.


Added DiffLines:

* ElephantInTheLivingRoom: Death is repeatedly stated to be Dracula's closest confidant in other games in the series, so you would think he would have something to say to the reincarnation of his old friend. On the contrary, though, these are some of the only games released after ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' where Death has no speaking role at all.


Added DiffLines:

* FanNickname: These two games have never been officially referred to as "Chronicles of Sorrow."

** However, [[spoiler:Chaos can't be called a villain since it has no will or personality of its own; it's just a physical manifestation of the chaos in Soma/Dracula's soul]].

** Arikado explains it in detail before Soma departs for the Chaotic Realm: [[spoiler:The castle is a reflection of Soma/Dracula's soul, and Chaos is literally the element of chaos that repeatedly drives them to evil. Soma avoids the same fate as his previous incarnation by destroying the chaos]].

** When Mina explains the myth that inspired the idea to seal Dracula's castle in a solar eclipse, the goddess Amaterasu Ōkami is mistranslated as "Tensho Daijin" due to a complete misreading of the kanji used to write her name.

* PoliteVillainsRudeHeroes: At the beginning of ''Aria'', Arikado is aloof and closemouthed, and Graham is chatty and helpful.

* [[NotUsingTheZWord Not Using the D Word]]: No one ever refers to Dracula directly when discussing the prospect of Soma becoming the Dark Lord [[spoiler:or in the bad ending, where he actually ''does'']] despite the fact that the "Dark Lord's" identity is blatantly clear.

** Similarly in ''Aria'', the Tsuchinoko. You only encounter it in a single room, half the time it's not even there, half the time when it IS there it immediatly buries into the ground, so it's possible you didn't even know it exists at all. Worse, it has a stupidly low soul drop rate and its bonus... is making items cheaper to buy. Somehow. [[SadisticChoice So you have the choice between money grinding to afford the ring which makes its soul drop more often, or kill-grinding it to make its soul drop, so you can afford that same very expensive ring more reasonably.]]

*** Just for the sake of clarification, it isn't the drop rate that makes the Tsuchinoko soul hard to get. It's the fact that it can just straight up leave the room, so you need to be decently powerful and/or hope it feels like co-operating to get even a chance of having it's soul. And then you need to hope the RNG co-operates as well, although it's drop rate isn't too terrible, so as long as you're strong enough to kill it decently quickly, it's much easier to get.
