* StealthPun: ''Akumajō Dracula X'' was literally the tenth ''Akumajō Dracula''[=/=]''Castlevania'' game released by Konami[[note]]That said, the "X" itself isn't "ten"; it's pronounced as the letter X[[/note]].

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.
