* BrokenBase: Whether the soundtrack is an awful low-quality mess, or is awesome ''because'' of the limitations.

* ItsTheSameSoItSucks: Another sore point about this game is the sheer similarities with ''Symphony Of The Night'': White-haired hero, dual-castle exploration, collecting Dracula's body parts, lack of challenge...
* NeverLiveItDown: Juste Belmont will [[MemeticMutation forever be mocked by fans for his (optional) sidequest to redecorate a single bare room in Castlevania with all sorts of furniture]].

** Maxim mode itself gives you the use of Maxim. And god, isn't he broken. Multi-hitting Shuriken Sub weapon, Invincible Rolls, FAST Stab attack, EVEN MORE FAST crouching kick (despite its pitiful range though), and a Franchise/StreetFighter command-esque move that is so powerful it wipes out boss easilly. Sure, it's a Bonus Mode, but try him in Boss Rush, and see how broken he really is.

* HilariousInHindsight: Juste FanNickname was Alucard Belmont, fast forward eleven years later, [[spoiler: Alucard, is actually Trevor Belmont resurrected]], there is a Alucard Belmont in the [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadowsMirrorOfFate reboot]]

* NightmareFuel: Legion, of course, but now in two delicious flavors! The standard Granfaloon "Destroy its outer layer of corpses, then whip the core" Legion and a new, more terrifying "Corpse" form, which involves whipping open a giant wound to attack its weak point -- a crucified skeleton! And the ''[[HellIsThatNoise sounds]]'' it makes! [[SarcasmMode Yay!]]

* CriticalDissonance: Critics praised Harmony of Dissonance as one of the best games for the Game Boy Advance, while fans usually see this game as SoOkayItsAverage.

* GoodBadBugs: Using the Ice Book + Sacred Fist will allow Juste to [[SequenceBreaking reach items and places much earlier than the game intended]]. For instance, he can get the Book of Vlad as early as before the WarmUpBoss! The player can also use this glitch to get the Platinum Tip as early as after getting the double jump.

* AntiClimaxBoss: [[spoiler:Dracula Wraith]] in the path to best ending, as it has only two easily avoidable attacks and just stays still as you whack it to oblivion.

* ContestedSequel
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: If you can get past the NES-like synthesized tones in the music, this game actually has some of the most haunting melodies heard in any of the portable Castlevanias (in particular, the theme heard in the bad ending), and a few badass tracks like the medley "Vampire Killer 2002".

* GameBreaker: The game lets you hold up to 99 of any item, as opposed to 9 in newer games. With enough money, you can easily buy 99 Potions and Hi-Potions, which makes survival trivial.
