* 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.

* 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]].

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.

* BishounenLine: Soma is the chronologically latest of Dracula, and by far the bishiest.

* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By Her Own Petard]]: In the bad ending to ''Dawn'', [[spoiler:Celia fakes killing Mina. Without Mina's talisman to absorb the darkness spawned by his rage, Soma becomes Dracula, just like Celia wanted... and then brutally kills Celia in his anger. Nice work, Celia. Rest in peace.]]

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In Julius Mode, Dark Lord Soma has shown himself to be much smarter than he was as Dracula. He actually relies on the souls he's absorbed, and if he has you cornered against the wall in his second form, [[ArtificialBrilliance he'll repeatedly hit you with the Abaddon soul, making it impossible to escape.]]

[[spoiler: After defeating Graham, [[LateArrivalSpoiler we learn]] that it is not him, but Soma who is the reincarnation of {{Dracula}} after his [[DeaderThanDead final death]] in 1999. Soma later meets with a mysterious man named J, who is actually the man who defeated Drac in 1999, Julius Belmont, who had contracted LaserGuidedAmnesia. After a GetAHoldOfYourselfMan scuffle, Soma goes to defeat the embodiment of Chaos and saying to Julius that if he becomes Dracula, he wants Julius to be the one to kill him. ]]

** DidNotDoTheResearch: That said, it isn't the first solar eclipse of the 21st Century, as the script says it is.
