** Said figure was released with a top glued on to extend the corset- but if one carefully pries it off, sands down the glue and touches up the paint... the top was to please both retail stores and MoralGuardians

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken''. In which a sketch shows Simon Belmont arriving at Dracula's castle. Two werewolves very politely invite him in, only for Simon to start whipping them, then runs off to whip more monsters, who also just wanted to accommodate their guest. Simon then enters Dracula's room, and whips Dracula (Who is huddling in fear on the floor in bat form) repeatedly while the werewolves from earlier watch in horror.

* AnimationAgeGhetto: ''Castlevania'' producer Koji "IGA" Igarashi attempted to sway younger audiences to the series with simplistic anime-style artwork for ''Dawn of Sorrow'' and ''Portrait of Ruin''. IGA went back to Ayami Kojima for the box art of ''The Dracula X Chronicles'', suggesting that the anime approach didn't go too well. Part of it was Iga wanting Kojima to focus on one project at a time, though he did go straight to the anime style, rather than someone who could at least emulate the theme, if not Kojima's style directly.

** Flea Men, thanks to their erratic movement patterns and tiny hitbox. They have {{Palette Swap}}s in ''Aria of Sorrow'' that are elevated to {{Demonic Spider|s}} status, thanks to them ''throwing knives''. They also come in Armored flavour, giving them a giant battleaxe to swing around.

** The previous broken bases, the original fans, the IGA fans,and the ''Lords of Shadows'' fans have [[EnemyMine joined forces]] to [[InternetBackdraft bash]] on the Konami for the new Pachinko machine as of late, due to it's heavy focus on {{Fanservice}} and the cancellation of any other types of Castlevania games.[[labelnote:Mind you, the previous pachinko iterations didn't cause any problems because they were in development alongside other games, came with new music and weren't full of scantily clad women]]

* AngstWhatAngst: [[spoiler:Should Richter fail to rescue Annette in ''The Dracula X Chronicles'', she's [[BrainwashedAndCrazy possessed by dark forces]], and transformed into a [[HornyDevils succubus]]. While Richter laments that he was unable to save his beloved, he notes that his job as a hunter of the night comes first. While [[TearJerker depressing]], it should be noted that vampirism in this series seems to be irreversible without the Sanctuary spell ([[VideoGame/CastlevaniaBloodlines which may not have]] [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin existed at the time]]), so [[MercyKill Richter was probably doing Annette a favor]]. Luckily, this isn't canon, as Richter needs to rescue Maria and all three of the women in order to confront Shaft's ghost, thus eradicating the one barricade in his way to Dracula.]]

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Is it an animated series based off a game that was commonly enjoyed by kids, and animated by a studio known for making kid shows? Yes. Is it actually for kids? Absolutely not. It is far too dark and bloody to be for kids, with the producer Adi Shankar comparing it to ''Series/GameOfThrones'' and calling it "R-rated as [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]]".
