* OutOfCharacterAlert: Someone Alucard thinks is his mother appears to be executed and attempts to trick him into committing murder against some humans via his mom's supposed final wish. Alucard remembers the event of Lisa's death far too well for him to fall for it, realizing that was something she would ''never'' tell him to do, and immediately deduces that "Lisa" was an imposter.
** In addition, she addresses him as Alucard, a name that he didn't start using until his mother was long dead.

** In game, Terminus Est is described as a poisonous executioner sword. This is a shoutout to the BookOfTheNewSun, the Terminus Est was the protagonist's executioner sword filled with mercury to increase the force of its stroke depending on how the wielder uses it. Note that in the Japanese version, the sword was called [[Literature/{{Beowulf}} Hrunting]].

** It also has these with the first two Castlevania games on Nintendo in [[spoiler: the inverted castle]]. Beating certain bosses will net Alucard the body parts of Dracula (used as relics), which were the goal of collecting in Simon's Quest. The bosses that give them up are the same original bosses of the first game (Giant Bat, Medusa, Akmodan II, Frankenstein, and Death).

* UnluckyThirteen: When returning to the clock room after equipping the gold and silver rings, the clock hands spin around until they both point downwards. The clock ominously chimes thirteen times before the floor opens up.

* BackToFront: [[{{PlayedWith}} Played with]]; The first level is Richter's "final level" from when he originally confronted Dracula in [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood Rondo of Blood]]. To this effect, not only are you powered up by this point, but Dracula himself has a OneWingedAngel form in the fight. [[spoiler: Of course, some time after Castlevania was destroyed, Shaft succeeded is attempt to manipulate Richter and use him to resurrect both Castlevania and Dracula himself.]]

* MightMakesRight: In the Prologue's pre fight cutscene (and by proxy the ending to VideoGame/RondoOfBlood), Dracula believes mankind uses the church and religious creed to enforce this. Richter believes [[RightMakesMight the opposite]].

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: In certain corridors in the castle, the player will see an ornate crest on the wall with the initials "CD". This is a reference to the fact that these are [[DynamicLoading loading corridors]], where the game is reading the next area from the [[UsefulNotes/CompactDisc disc]]. However, the initials could also stand for "Castle Dracula" or simply "Count Dracula", avoiding an outright [[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth wall break]].

* HundredPercentCompletion: The game allows you to explore 100% of the map. [[spoiler:This score can then be increased to 200.6% in a "mirror" version of the castle; if you exploit a couple of wall bugs, you can increase this to ~240%]].
