** Death in ''Aria'' is no slouch, either. His first form isn't so bad if you have the Witch soul, letting you bounce his mini-scythes back at him ForMassiveDamage, but the second form becomes extremely tricky to avoid, especially when he starts rolling his scythe all over the walls and floor.

Further Walkthrough mode, also example indentation.
* ThatOneBoss: [[spoiler:Julius]] in ''Aria''. He's fast, he's unpredictable, and he laughs at your InfinityPlusOneSword due to his resistance to holy. You basically need an alternate weapon and FlashStep to beat him. ** Good thing the InfinityMinusOneSword is super-effective against him. If you kept it. ** Plus, after the fight, Soma states that [[spoiler:Julius]] was stronger than that, and he admits to not giving it his all. So the narrative is saying that you fought him when he was ''holding back!''

Holy Natter, Batman! TV Tropes is no place for discussing game and boss strategies, nor is the trope pages a Forum!
*** The battle can be trivialized if you know the right ways to do it. A max level Buer is easily capable of rendering the locusts useless (they die to 1 damage and they always collide with the fireballs) and the Frost Maiden soul can give you a temporary wall to use while you whale on him. Others still, like the Zombie, can be used as a temporary shield (which can be summoned multiple times). The problem in this is that while Soma has plenty of options, Julius and his crew do not. The most you have is Julius's whip which does... yeah... Not very helpful against the U shaped mobs and the death from above. Really the only way to stop it is to use the awesome power of the Cross Item crash, and that eats up around half your MP when you use it (thus it pretty much means you get 2 shots of it and it probably won't be close to killing Abaddon). *** Or you can hold the whip and flip it around, or even use Alucard's special attack, which gives you invulnerability frames. *** The whip only works on the direct attack. The Whip isn't fast enough to stop the death from above attacks. Julius isn't [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaCircleOfTheMoon Nathan Graves.]] Alucard's invincible move also doesn't completely work out because he still has to go back to his original position and certain attacks last longer than his animation. *** When playing as Soma, the easiest (if not argubly the best) way to win the battle is to just use a low-level Persephone soul attack. You'll literally suck up almost all of the locusts (while ''healing'' yourself in the process) and you can whale on the otherwise harmless boss. But those other methods sound good too. **** Yoko's kicks from a safe spot work wonders for restoring your life.

Yeah, it turned out not to be real, but it was a dastardly move nonetheless. (moral event horizon)
Added DiffLines:
** And earlier, [[spoiler:Celia's attempt to bring out Dracula within Soma by killing a Doppelganger disguised as Mina]].

*** Also an odd example; some find Julius to be boringly easy, even when using a weapon he resists, but there's very little in the way of people who think he's only moderately challenging.

* SurprisinglyHappyEnding: The Castlevania saga ends not with the final destruction of Dracula, but with his redemption, the final destruction of his castle (which was the real enemy of the series, when you think about it) and a second chance for him to have a good life.

Holy natter, Batman.
** Yet, many people tend to forget that both ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood Rondo of Blood]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaBloodlines Bloodlines]]'' used anime-styled artwork ''[[OlderThanTheyThink years before this game]]''. As did ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaLegends Legends]]'' and the [[VideoGame/{{Castlevania 64}} Nintendo 64 titles]]. *** It's not so much the anime style as it is the characters becoming {{Bishonen}}. *** Well, to be fair, Kojima wasn't exactly conservative with the Bish either...

** Death attacking Soma, despite the latter being Dracula, makes sense as Dracula had the Crimson Stone, something that Soma lacks.

** On that same note, why does Death attack Soma? He of all people should sense some Dracula in him. Maybe he's gone insane after 36 years of no master?

** Abbadon in ''Dawn'' [[MookMaker summons swarms of locusts]] that you simply must deal with while occasionally hitting him, a complete reversal of the standard ''Castlevania'' strategy. He shows up as a BonusBoss in ''[[CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin Portrait of Ruin]]'', and is still ridiculously hard.
