* AmbiguousTimePeriod: A minor example but the official chronology places the game before {{Literature/Dracula}} in 1897 with the only statement of when this takes place being 18??. It could be the Georgian or the Victorian Era.

** ''Order of Ecclesia'' continues the ''Franchise/JojosBizarreAdventure'' references with the boss [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/1187224-castlevania Blackmore]]. Not only does he attack Shanoa with an invisible entity that is only visible by its shadow to her, almost like a Stand in itself, he poses flamboyantly and dresses loudly like a true Jojo character. His name is even a music reference - hes named after Ritchie Blackmore, an English musician, well-known for his work with the band Deep Purple. Which, coincidentally, is the color that makes up most of his color scheme.

His stand's shadow, cast by the candles in the foreground, betrays its existence to Shanoa, who promptly attacks it, causing the damage dealt to synchronize to him with deadly effect.

* MoreDakka: [[spoiler:Albus fires that gun of his REALLY fast in Albus Mode.]] Made even more awesome by the fact that this game takes place in the early 1800s and that the first semi-automatic firearm wasn't invented until 1885.

** Old Axe Armor, when equipped to Shanoa, makes it so she takes exact percentage damage every hit, so it takes exactly 11 hits to kill her. While it might seem pointless in a normal game, a Hard Mode Level 1 challenge makes this armor extremely handy, as a number of enemies would otherwise be able to OneHitKill her.

* SpeedRun: Like most 2D Metroidvanias, dash-cancelling makes for speedy movement, and [[spoiler: Albus Mode]] gives the player an teleport move that can bypass walls.



* UselessUsefulSpell: Torpor stinks of it at first glance (it purports to freeze enemies), but is actually -very- nifty, especially in Hard Mode. Most enemies that are vulnerable to Slash glyphs can be frozen with it, and this just happens to include the [[DemonicSpider Cave Troll], Lizardman and Lizardman Blade, and other speedy nuisances that it helps to stop cold. Cubus is similar. It's seemingly useless, but in Hard Mode it can be your best friend in the Skeleton Cave as it is capable of blocking the fireball spam dished out by Bone Pillars well before you come into Vol/Melio Scutum (shield glyphs that actually cover you frontside), with a single cube if you duck. This is more than enough to allow you to get in and bash them with Vol Macir without getting shot to hell, making the proceedings a lot less painful.

* NintendoHard: The only Metroidvania-engined Castlevania game to exceed the GameFAQs difficulty voting threshold of 3.5 to qualify for Nintendo Hard. Taken UpToEleven in multiple stages: level 50 Hard mode, level 1 Hard Mode with a NewGamePlus, and level 1 Hard Mode without a NewGamePlus. Enemies deal absolutely INSANE amounts of damage and some of them are faster, demanding you to use everything you've got and come up with some new strategies.

* AxCrazy: [[spoiler: Barlowe upon the reveal. It's also heavily implied that he was like this all along, and that his betraying Shanoa was due to his insanity, as, during his TeleportSpam attack, he says, with each punch, "HOW DARE YOU...! EVEN FORGETTING... WHO RAISED YOU...! YOU... STUPID DISCIPLE!!"]]

* MirrorMatch: [[spoiler:Albus vs Albus anyone?]]MirrorBoss: [[spoiler:Albus]], especially in Hard Mode as the boss can use three glyphs available to you: Ignis, Grando and Fulgur. And they hurt just as much as yours.

* FakeDifficulty: Eligor is invincible from the front to the unlockable character [[spoiler:Albus]]. Wouldn't be out of the ordinary, except for the fact that he seemingly takes damage regardless of what part of his head you hit. You can do well over enough damage to kill him from the front by high jumping and attacking, and he'll keep standing even though he should be down already. For no reason.
