* JapaneseSiblingTerminology: Maria calls Annette "onee-chan" (big sis) and Richter "oni-chan" (big bro), despite not being directly related to either one. But since the SNES version turned Annette and Maria into actual siblings, it's easy to think otherwise.

Added DiffLines:

* FightingSpirit: Maria possesses a secret attack where she fires off a warrior version of herself that unleashes a RapidfireFisticuffs attack, much like a [[JojosBizarreAdventure certain other anime series]].

Added DiffLines:

* BarefootPoverty: Can be seen as such with Annette as in one cutscene, she's barefoot while held prisoner in Dracula's castle.


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: The painting sub boss on the ghost ship level. It slowly flies around the room, basically being a huge target and will die after a few attacks. However, if you get careless and it touches you, it will one-shot you. To top it off, the subject in the painting will change to look like he's laughing at you.


Added DiffLines:

* TakingYouWithMe: Some of the bosses after having their health bar completely empty will try one last ditch effort to attack Richter. The werewolf, minotaur, and sea serpent are notable examples.

* 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.

* LethalJokeItem: The Key's item crash costs no hearts to use, but it's still an InvulnerableAttack.

* MarketBasedTitle: A minor change, but the official English release of ''Rondo'' had the full title ''Castlevania: Rondo of Blood''. dropping the X from ''Akumajō Dracula X: Chi no Rondo''. "Castlevania" replaces "Akumajō Dracula" ("Demon Castle Dracula"), as always.

* ShutUpHannibal: In Maria's ending, Dracula gives a rambling villain speech, and Maria just blurts out she doesn't understand what he means.

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.
