** The track that plays in the Cordova Town area is also a standout piece.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Isaac gets this kind of attention. Helps that he literally is wearing leather pants.

* {{Narm}}: The dialogue can get like this, as it tries to sound Shakespearean ("'Tis done" etc.).



* ThatOneBoss: Every boss starting with the first encounter with Trevor Belmont is That One Boss. Especially Dullahan, what with his shockwave attack. And the boss before him? Trevor, ''again''. He's even ''worse'' the second time.



* ThatOneSidequest: Some of the game's better and.....wackier weapons require hard to find items, some of which are boss-only steals. Stealing items requires the enemies to be in a particular frame of motion. Oh, and did you happen to miss a key item from a boss? No worries, you can fight them again! Provided you boss rush through all the bosses in the game that is. Not too bad, until you remember that every boss past the first two are ThatOneBoss. One of them ([[spoiler:Death]]) actually requires you to raise up a fairy with the ability [[MythologyGag Invincibility Jar]] to get to him when he's vulnerable to stealing and time it so that it runs out right when his SphereOfDestruction attack ends (since you can't steal while invincible), or learn how to perfect block all its hits.

* FridgeBrilliance: [[spoiler:Julia, who is Issac's sister, is a witch who escaped the witch hunts and inexplicably looks identical to Hector's wife Rosaly, who was killed in said witch hunts thanks to Issac. Could it be that Issac framed Rosaly both to piss off Hector '''''and''''' to protect his sister...?]]

* GameBreaker: Bone Storm.

to:

* GameBreaker: Corpsey's Bone Storm.Storm. It deals a lot of damage to the enemies, makes Corpsey invincible while using it, can stunlock some enemies, and is cheap to use too.


Added DiffLines:

* ThatOneLevel: Dracula's Castle is easily among the worst levels in the game. It's not particularly hard, per se, but going through the same few rooms OVER and OVER again gets to be a hell of a drag.

** There's a slightly easier way to do the above by turning down the music volume so that you can hear when the attack is about to end and switching IDs causes the invincibility effect to end instantly, eliminating the exact timing element to a large degree.
