** We know Julius, Alucard, and a Belandes were present at the shrine during the eclipse in 1999, that doesn't mean they couldn't have brought backup. Though I'm thinking they decided against briging soldiers and called the Film/{{Ghostbusters}}.

Things might get a bit messy when non-Belmonts use the whip and die before they can have descendants. That would render the whip unusable, unless it only matters if you're descended from a majority of the users.

[[WMG: Soma's Power of Dominance is responsible for his level ups]]
He gets a tiny bit of soul from every monster he kills. Explains how his BagOfSpilling worked; he is said to lose all of the souls he gained. Works for why he has no special abilities, but if he got stronger from the souls as well...
As for why he didn't bring his absurd weapons, maybe he lost his luggage on the plane? And he wasn't carrying his stuff around in the intro.

But the distant relatives can't use the Vampire Killer normally because the people who can use the Vampire Killer are only those who are descended from the ones who were also chosen. So the line of descent of Vampire Killer users is a straight line. That, or the Belmonts regularly engage in incest.

Well, not Leon specifically. It depends on being descended from the ones who were also chosen. So prior users.
Say that Leon had two kids, Alice and Bob. Alice gets

Aaron and Barbara are equally descended from Leon as his grandkids, but Barbara can't use the Belmonts regularly engage in incest.whip because she's not descended from Alice.

Elizabeth from ''Bloodlines'' is the Dark Lord's niece, and [[DaddysLittleVillain Uncle's Little Villain]] at that. Naturally, this means that she's Alucard's cousin, although the two have never interacted and we know virtually nothing else about Elizabeth (particularly, which side of the family she hails from). Alucard is at least 560 years old, given the window between [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaIIIDraculasCurse his first chronological appearance]] (1476) and [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow his latest]] (2036-37); presumably all vampires (Elizabeth included) are gifted with such longevity/immortality, given Walter's presence in ''Lament'' and Mathias/Dracula not meeting Lisa until a few centuries after the end of that same game. By that logic, Elizabeth might have grown up alongside Alucard, or at least had some sort of off-screen association with him prior to the events of ''III''. If the two were indeed close, Elizabeth might have reacted to his actions in one of several different ways, none positively. Maybe she was disgusted that Alucard would (help) kill his own father and hated him for it. Or maybe she wanted Alucard to take her away into hibernation with him, and felt betrayed that he'd abandon her like that. While the rumors of the Lecarde family's possible origins in Alucard (and Maria) have yet to be addressed, Eric ''did'' inherit the Alucard Spear. So, centuries down the road, an embittered Elizabeth decided to work out her grudge by screwing with Eric's love life [[RevengeByProxy as an affront to her memory of Alucard]].

[[WMG: Sypha and Trevor had a SolomonDivorce]]
That's why Sypha is considered the matriarch of the Belnades clan despite being married to Trevor, and why the clan still exists at all. They had lots of children, but half of them took the Belmont name and half of them took the Belnades name.

[[WMG: The distant relatives to the Belmont clan and the main house are all equally descended from Leon...]]

The Devil Mask may have similar powers, but the alternate final boss(?) it produces looks like it escaped from a [[VideoGame/SilentHill different Konami series]].

Who did the Dominus Glyph choose? Shanoa herself. It's Dracula's power, and he's actually an evil god. And most of the glyphs that Shanoa uses has a similar counterpart on Suikoden's runes.

* In a developer's point of view, anyone know why the whip was chosen as the Belmont's signature weapon?

This would explain his role in the "final" sealing of Dracula's castle in 1999. As an added bonus, it might also explain why the first phase of Death in AriaOfSorrow was just his scythe--Julius beat him so badly that even 36 years later he was having trouble manifesting on the physical plane, and thus had to possess his scythe since he couldn't properly focus his power.
