* AnachronismStew: Items like Japanese Weapons, Sweatshirts, bombs, Ramen noodles, Pizza, miniguns, and a ''LaserBlade'' in the 15th Century Valachia? These have the loose justification of being created by somebody with explicitly magical powers who's (for the stranger things) using obscure materials like an Immortal Fragment stolen from a time traveler and a weapon made with material lifted from a Minotaur (the Gatling Gun and Hien) or Glow Dust taken from a Dullahan in what seems to be an alternate dimension (Laser Blade). As for the reason the bosses have strange things like Shortcake, Cheese, Ramen, and Tomato Juice, there is no reason given. [[note]]The reason the Skeleton Diver has Sushi is clear, you're ripping a chunk of meat off his ride![[/note]]

* AnAxeToGrind: Both two handed and one handed appear, although the latter tends to be more like CarryABigStick.
* BagOfSpilling: Justified. Hector abandoned all of his powers and equipment to live a normal life, but when Isaac ruined it, he came after him for revenge with the only weapon he had on hand. Isaac taunts him for trying to do it WithThisHerring, and then sets up means for Hector to [[INeedYouStronger regain his powers so it'll be worth it when they fight]].
* BatmanGambit: Isaac pulls this on both Hector and Trevor. He lures Hector (to whom he serves as a worthy opponent) along with the promise of eventually facing him in battle, and at the same time draws Trevor's attention. When he slips into the Infinite Corridor, Trevor is forced to let Hector into it... which leads to Hector accidentally breaking the seal on Dracula's Castle, Isaac's goal the entire time.

* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: Saint Germain is based on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Count_of_St._Germain Count of St. Germain]], who was heavy on self-mythologizing himself, including claiming to be centuries old.
* {{BFS}}: The Dragonslayer sword takes the cake. Not only it's really long, but is even broader than Hector himself!

* TheBlacksmith: Hector and Isaac are Devil Forgemasters, and can create both minions and weapons. Veers into, UltimateBlacksmith as well, since Hector can produce all kinds of powerful gear (even stuff [[AnachronismStew that doesn't exist yet]]) all by his lonesome. He doesn't even need a forge and smelter, just the raw materials will do.

* CallBack: At the beginning in the Abandoned Castle, you receive a Dragon Crest which is needed to advance though. You also climb a peculiar set of stairs. Both reference Walter's Castle from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLamentOfInnocence''. (The only difference is the location of where the crest is used.)

* CopyAndPasteEnvironments: Not quite as bad as ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLamentOfInnocence'', but still noticeable. Until you get into Dracula's Castle, anyway, where it blows Lament out of the water.

Block went from R2 to R1, hard attack went from triangle to circle (and vice versa) and open door went from square to circle.

* DefectorFromDecadence: Hector left Dracula's side and renounced to his powers. This is the main reason for Isaac's hate for him.
* DemBones: Skeletons with swords are an early enemys that can be smashed to pieces with a single hit. The game is also a rare example where they actually wear clothes other than armor.

* DubInducedPlothole: An Averted Inversion: Usually, the presence of the Japanese dub would mean that players in the west who heared it would be puzzled at Trevor being called Ralph, even though he was still being called Trevor in the subtitles. Konami solved this problem by simply recording the Japanese voice overs where the name in question is mentioned TWICE, one time with "Trevor" being said (the version which made it onto the game sold in the US), and one time with "Ralph" (for the version which was sold in Japan).

Some weapons and ID can use this powers, while nearly all the enemies have elemental-attacks and elemental resistances/weaknesses.
* ElementalRockPaperScissors: Attacking a certain enemy with an element he's weak against will deal double damage to him, while hitting him with an element he's resistant against will half the damage. Said elemental damage can be inflicted thanks to certain weapons or the Innocent Devil's attacks.
* EliteMook: Any of the Level 75 enemies. These guys have the same basic attack patterns of their lower-level brethren, but they can knock out a significant portion of your life if they hit you.

* GorgeousPeriodDress: Saint Germain has an outfit that's used specifically to make him seem even more bizarre and out-of-place. Not only is it an anachronistic example of it--being of an 1800s gentleman style in a game set in the late 1400s--but no-one else in the game uses it fully. Only one other character has an even borderline case, and Julia's dress is far more muted and "realistic". Other characters tend towards relatively mundane attire or ImpossiblyCoolClothes.

** Spears have the Chauve-Souris, Isaac's weapon which has an additional combo finisher, and is also required to wield to get the final evolution of the devil-type innocent devil; The End (of which Isaac's familiar Abel is one of).
** Axes have [[SinisterScythe Death's Scythe]], which is easily the hardest weapon to make as it requires not only a steal from his namesake (that you need to breed a specific fairy-type innocent devil for and is only stealable for half a second during his deadliest attack), but also requires the above-mentioned Chauve-Souris, meaning you'll need to make a second of an already hard to come by weapon. As a payoff, the Scythe is easily the strongest weapon in the game, and has a unique finisher that summons a flurry of Death's iconic sickles.

** Special weapons, while not having one in the strictest definition, have Hien as their strongest member, dealing Holy damage and hitting like a truck, as well as dumping the trend of being awkward to use for a simple, straight, and to the point jab chain which is more effective if you pause to repeat the first one instead of doing all three. While it is also used as a component for the Gatling Gun, that is a fairly terrible weapon due to grounding you in place and having no ATK of its own, so its damage is awful.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Despite the Gothic Horror-like settings, there's a huge Wyvern residing on the top of Bahljet Mountains (which is actually the second appearance of a such a monster in the series, the first being in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood'') . Also one of the possible final evolution of the Bird Type I.D., specifically the [[PlayingWithFire Carmesi]] and [[AnIcePerson Indigo]].
