* CoolChair: ''Rondo'' is where chairs first started appearing in ''Castlevania'' levels, but you can't do anything but jump on them. At one point you find a skeleton sitting in one. Either you whip it away or see it turning to dust as you pass.

A [[ReformulatedGame remixed port]] was released for the Super Famicom titled ''Akumajō Dracula XX'' (as in "Double X") in 1995, which was released for the American Super NES as ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaDraculaX'' and in Europe as ''Castlevania: Vampire's Kiss''. While the basic plot and game system remained identical to the PC Engine, the stages were all-new and a lot more linear (with only two hidden stages) due to the lower memory capacity of the cartridge format, and unlike the PC-Engine version, only Richter was playable.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Dracula tries to snuff out Richter by sending his forces to [[DoomedHometown attack his hometown]] in Wallachia. Luckily for Richter, he was out training at the time; when he hears news of the attack (and abduction of several townswomen), he rushes back. Long story short, the end result is exactly what you'd expect to happen in a ''Castlevania'' game in regards to a Belmont facing the Dark Lord.
