* 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. Considering that the previous fight against Maxim actually requires some degree of skill, this comes off as little pathetic.

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

* 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 ''sounds'' it makes! [[SarcasmMode Yay!]]
* JustForFun/XMeetsY: VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight meets Franchise/DevilMayCry starring a white haired badass in a demon infested castle.

** The game's take on SuspendSave is oh so expoitable. Did you just get a major item, yet you're running low on HP and are far away from the nearest save point? No problem, just "Suspend" your game and if you die on the way back, you'll still have that shiny new item with you when you reload at the last save point you used. Or better yet, reset the game or [[ViolationOfCommonSense die on purpose]] and reload; depending on where you were going, you'll have saved yourself a lot of time and frustration. Later games would adapt more standard suspend saves most likely for this reason.

** 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 FASTER 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.

* ItsTheSameSoItSucks: Another sore point about this game is the sheer similarities with ''Symphony Of The Night'': White-haired hero, dual-castle exploration (with several similar stage placements to boot), several similar game-mechanics (the fast dash and Juste's aversion to water) collecting Dracula's body parts, lack of challenge...
