* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:After Jonathan and Charlotte defeat Brauner, Death comes in and finishes him off, revealing that the last obstacle to Dracula's resurrection has been removed]]. 100% subverted if you actually [[spoiler:defeat Stella and Loretta. Jonathan curses himself for defeating them]], but before he can go in for the kill, [[spoiler:Brauner]] comes in to stop him (while begging on his knees, no less) to give a short speech about how [[spoiler:he and his "daughters" are related not by blood but by souls]]. He then leaves via teleport, to Jonathan's surprise, leaving the duo to escape while the castle crumbles. Now what does this have to do with the plot, you ask? Well, remember how [[spoiler:Death points out how Brauner was the last thing standing in the way between him and reviving Dracula? Well, since you made him leave and the castle is in shambles, Death's little gambit took a turn for the worse]]. You can just imagine him giving himself a facepalm for that litle miscalculation.

* UnwinnableByInsanity: It's possible to render the Nest Of Evil completely unescapable by not triggering the teleporter next to the entrance and then going all the way from the first floor to the bottom floor in one go and using the save point at the bottom.

* [[spoiler:[[HijackedByGanon Hijacked By Dracula]]: The only reason that this comes as a surprise at all is because Dracula's explicitly mentioned as being absent at the start of the game. The end of the game makes it clear that he was never ''absent'', just suppressed by Brauner.]]

* [[PartyInMyPocket Partner In My Pocket]]: Apparently, this isn't just visual shorthand. Go stand next to Vincent, put away your partner and hold Up for a while. Likely related to how [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaIIIDraculasCurse Trevor]] does it.

Added DiffLines:

** Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure references turn up in Portrait of Ruin:
*** If you hold up for a couple seconds, Jonathan and Charlotte will strike fabulous poses. Charlotte in particular strikes a pose similar to one of Jolyne's poses, while Jonathan appears to use a mirrored version of one of Jonathan '''Joestar's''' poses.
*** If you activate the Stopwatch subweapon to [[TimeStandsStill freeze time]] and throw knives, they will stop dead in the frozen time after leaving Jonathan's hands the same way Dio does it in Stardust Crusaders.

** The boss of the London-esque 13th Street is the Werewolf. Hm... That [[UniversalHorror seems]] [[Music/WarrenZevon familiar]]...

* BarrierChangeBoss: Death is one in this game. His cloak will change from the standard black (in which he's weak against spells and resistant to physical attacks) to [[LightIsNotGood white]] (in which he resists spells but is weak against physical attacks) and back again throughout the battle.

** The description for the fedora says it [[IndianaJones just feels right with a whip]]. The leather whip's description as being for a warrior with panache could plausibly be a reference to the same.

** One of the most useful weapons in the game is Nebula, a chain whip that homes on enemies and can form a protective shield with its special attack. Nebula. Chain. Nebula... Chain... [[SaintSeiya Nope, doesn't ring a bell!]]

** Ancient Armor, an very rare drop from Old Axe Armors. It forces every damage hit to deal 10% of the player's health regardless of their defense. While this doesn't seem to be useful on a normal playthrough, it becomes extremely valuable for players planning on venturing in Hard Level 1 difficulty.

* ButNowIMustGo: [[spoiler:Eric]]

to:

* BrutalBonusLevel: Nest of Evil. It's a completely optional area full of the hardest enemies and some of the toughest bosses. Even a well prepared player is prone to dying a lot there.
* ButNowIMustGo: [[spoiler:Eric]][[spoiler:Eric]] in both endings.
