* AntiHero: What Dracula is. A very dark type IV.



* BackFromTheDead: Although the original Carmilla is quite dead, [[spoiler:Inner Dracula]] revives a version of her from Dracula's memories during Dracula's sojourns into the castle. [[spoiler:Marie is also revived the same way, though whether she's simply a personification of Dracula's memories or her soul sent back from Heaven is unclear.]]

* ButThouMust: It is impossible to avoid the slaughter of an innocent family in the beginning of the main game. Refusing leads to a... ''[[IncrediblyLamePun fiery]]'' NonstandardGameOver.



* DarkReprise: Well, "Dracula's Theme" (the tune you hear in the menu screen) is already a pretty somber song, but it comes back when Dracula meets [[spoiler:Marie again]]. The "dark" part comes in when Dracula finally has a ''VillainousBreakdown''.

* LimitBreak: The Dragon Amulet: When you have five dragon scales, using it causes Dracula to go into a cutscene where he turns into a dragon made of shadows and chaos, before crashing down and doing damage that will kill just about everything in the game short of boss in one hit. It also makes Dracula invincible and locks him into stronger than normal chaos claws for about half a minute after.

** [[spoiler:Inner Dracula's]] first form bears an unearthly resemblance to [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow Menace.]]
** The head of the Bernhard Family first encountered in ''Lords of Shadow 1'' was named [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaLamentOfInnocence Walter]].
** The icon of the “Start the Path” achievement/trophy features Dracula's classic 8-bit avatar from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaI''.
** Combining the two DLC skins by manipulating the menu results in Dracula taking on an appearance ''extremely'' similar to his classical counterpart from VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight.



** At one point the Travel Book refers to Hell as [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Avernus.]]
** The “Client Satisfaction” war memorial mentions the [[VideoGame/CliveBarkersJericho Jericho Unit]], a group of specialists who battle the supernatural.



** It's never really explained how Zobek survived [[spoiler: seemingly being killed by Satan]] at the end of the first game.

Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Virtually ''none'' of of the Castlevania City citizens find the fact that an emaciated old man just got slingshot straight through the church's stained-glass window, landed and ''survived'' a fifteen-stories-high fall, and that another man in a splendid business suit just ''levitated'' down all that astounding, and resume their normal activities mere ''minutes'' after everything settles down. Justified, as, according to all the memorials you can discover, weird... ''stuff'' – mysterious disappearances, sightings of an ethereal wolf, semi-regular earthquakes – has been happening all over this city for ''centuries''. People simply got used to it.

** The third acolyte, a Satan-worshiping cleric named Guido Szandor, is almost certainly named for Anton Szandor [=LaVey=], founder of the real-life Church of Satan.

He may also be a reference to ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}'' villain Ivo Shandor, who is also the leader of a cult whose goal is to summon an evil deity to bring about the apocalypse.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Flame Claws skill. Sure, it's the most damaging move in-game (rivaled only by Counterstrike Punch, but, well, the former requires blocking a normal attack before it could be performed), but putting it to good use is impossible due to its unclear aiming, plus one such occurrence drains a ''quarter'' of your maxed-out, non-overcharged Chaos meter. You are better off spending that energy differently.

** You also have to bring Nergal there to fight him, and he does not see it as a mental construct whatsoever, but actually refers to it as if it is a real structure, rather than just something in Dracula's head. The castle seems to also sap most of his power, except his ability to possess statues and use the powers those figures are supposed to have.
