* ShoutOut: The infamous line "DON'T LOOK INTO THE DEATH STAR" likely refers to ''FistOfTheNorthStar'', rather than the [[Franchise/StarWars more infamous battle station]].

* HeroWithBadPublicity: The reason the townspeople often lie to you is because they blame Simon for Dracula's curse that has befallen the land.

* HeroWithBadPublicity: The reason the townspeople often lie to you is because they blame Simon for Dracula's curse that has befallen the land. In one of the last towns, the locals are hostile and tell you to leave, and it also doesn't help that Simon intends to ressurect Dracula in order to kill him.


Added DiffLines:

* PointOfNoReturn: There's a long drop just before Dracula. Simon doesn't have the means to get out of this pit once he falls down.

* [[{{Uberwald}} Überwald]]: Almost the entire game other than the mansions and the ruins of Dracula's Castle. It's one of the things that makes it stand out among other games where it's either all castle or a more balanced mix of outdoors and castle environments.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: This game has a few parallels with ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink, in both games the main villains are dead and their minions are causing havoc across the countryside, and the entire format changes from their respective originals, which many people complained about thus making both games the "Blacksheeps" of their respective series.

** EarnYourHappyEnding: However, in that ending, Simon is free from the curse and he can live the rest of his life until the next time Dracula rises. In the other endings, Simon succumbs to his wounds and dies as well.

** The artwork of Dracula on the front cover of the game resembles the Clyde Caldwell cover of the original ''{{Ravenloft}}'' module from [[Tabletopgame/DungeonsAndDragons AD&D]]. "Resembles" here means "identical except that Dracula/Strahd is looking at the viewer instead of directly forward, and Simon Belmont is superimposed on the foreground."

A very ambitious title for its day, ''Simon's Quest'' took the basic gameplay of its predecessor and mixed in RPGElements such as experience levels, shops, a [[EternalEquinox day/night cycle]], and a freely-explorable world. It is the first ''Castlevania'' game in the {{Metroidvania}} genre.

genre. As a result of this (particularly its ambition perhaps exceeding the capabilities of its target platform and alloted development cycle), it received a ''very'' mixed reception and its triumphs and failings remain topics of debate even today.

* ContinuingIsPainful: Dying on your last life results in the reduction of your heart count to zero. Since hearts are used as currency and ammunition and every item has an expensive price tag, this always equates to a severe loss of time invested in collecting them.

It also adds several hours to the in-game clock, making it that much harder to get one of the better endings.



** If you hadn't already found out that Dracula's Nail lets you break down walls with your whip, odds are you learned about it just now by reading this. There sure isn't anything in the game that so much as hints at it.

* InfallibleBabble: Averted. The townspeople will often offer clues that are misleading, confusing, or just plain false.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The second to last town thinks you're the direct cause of all the havoc that's being wreaked throughout Transylvania. [[TheLegionsOfHell Dracula's minions]] are still out for blood, after all. (To be fair, they have a point: Simon is trying to resurrect Dracula purely for his own sake, now.) The last town is deserted.
