* ABoyAndHisX: Claudia and her Black Knight Golem. She's a telepathically-communicating CuteMute [[LastOfHerKind who is also the last of the]] {{Precursors}}, he's a humongous {{Golem}} feeding off the souls of the monsters trying to do her harm.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Sort of with Cornell, the hero of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLegacyOfDarkness'', is the first of the three Lords of Shadow.Shadow.
** [[spoiler: it's revealed that the Lords of shadow are the soulless bodies of three of the Brotherhood's founders whose souls rose to heaven as beings only second to God. Meaning Cornell is a heroic person, but just not the part you fight.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ClockPunk: Areas present in the ''Reverie'' DLC share this motif. The Founders' Quarters tower even has gigantic cogs sticking out of it!


Added DiffLines:

* MuckingInTheMud: The Dead Bog. Complete with murderous [[TheFairFolk naiads]] and QuicksandSucks if you don't get to safety in an allotted amount of time.


Added DiffLines:

*** The Combat Crosses, the Brotherhood's signature weapon, were created by an alchemist called [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaLamentOfInnocence Rinaldo Gandolfi.]]


Added DiffLines:

* PropheticFallacy: When Zobek first unveils that Gabriel must fulfill the prophecy that would “deliver [them] from all evil,” he fails to mention the consequences. [[spoiler: Justified, in that neither Zobek nor Satan, were aware of the “completed” version of the prophecy, and that Gabriel would have to trade in his humanity to achieve his goal.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It's not wholly clear what happened to the Devil Mask after [[spoiler: Satan had been defeated.]] Gabriel holds onto it in the intro cinematic of ''Reverie'', but it's never elaborated on whenever he got rid of it or kept it.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: The Combat Cross used as a loading indicator during pre-stage narration gets the same upgrades as your Combat Cross in-game. The loading screen cross even loses the stake after Gabriel breaks the end off in Carmilla's chest.

* WhamShot: In the epilogue, [[spoiler: Gabriel and Zobek fight briefly before Zobek's outfit changes from a cloak to a business suit. He pushes Gabriel out of a window, and Gabriel falls into a modern day city.]]

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Exploding Quake skill, which requires a whole slew of button mashing to pull off. [[note]] Here's the in-game instruction for this move: “<...> Tap the [[X]] button, then press and hold the [[Y]] button until you smash the Combat Cross against the floor to start the combo. Each subsequent [[Y]] press will create an additional explosion, climaxing with a final press and hold of the [[Y]] button for the last devastating attack.” Scared yet? [[/note]] You will buy this skill just because it opens up the ''much'' better Ultimate Shadow.


Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical:
** The direct heavy combo might qualify as this. It's one of the very first upgraded moves you can acquire, and chances are, you will put it to good use. It's easily the most damaging non-magical skill, the combo can be built indefinitely, and it's one of the few moves which strike the ground before you, meaning it is critical when facing skeleton warriors and/or unique sludge-summoning enemies (the Black Knight and Laura's toys). This skill plus an enemy that is distracted/dazed by a fairy equals mincemeat, enjoy.
** Guillotine. The ease-of-use of this airborne finisher you obtain during the tutorial is not be undervalued, and with Shadow Magic active you can effortlessly bypass the hundred damage cap per hit.


Added DiffLines:

* DyingRace: ''Numerous'' in-game foes and allies belong to a species that are slowly dying out. Goblins and trolls are on the verge of extinction, the very last ogre had taken refuge in Malphas' stronghold, giant spiders are being poached for their precious silk, the Old Gods are being replaced by one God, and dragons died out long before the game's events. The sequel adds harpies, lycans, and vampires to this list, as well.

*** This is how Gabriel deals with every mount that isn't a shapeshifted Pan. The spiked chain Rinaldo Gandolfi created was for such a purpose.
