* BreatherLevel: On the Alucard path, opting to finish Stage 5 rather than going to the Sunken Ruins takes you to the Catacombs beneath the castle. It's unusually short, has fairly simple challenges, and both Grant and Alucard have ways to make it even shorter. Even the boss (Frankie, who also appears in Stage 5 of Sypha's route) is pretty easy. ** The Castle Entrance is this on all paths, despite the fact that from this point on you die in four hits. It's short, light on the bottomless pits and tricky jumps, and allows opportunities to get lots of hearts. The boss is certainly not that easy though, considering it's Death.

** Death is this as usual. He flies around summoning scythes and you die in four hits like the encounter in the first game, only he has a second form this time round. Fortunately, the second form is easier than the first form, and the first, while really hard, is not as brutal as in the first game due to you having more options and room to manouver.

** Stage 7 as a whole could count, seeing as it's about as long as 2 normal stages. The best part? The hardest parts are AFTER the falling blocks, so every time you game over, you have to go through them again.

The fact that you die in four hits at this point is the icing on the cake.

Moved tropes that are not YMMV to Video Game and Fridge tabs.
* FridgeBrilliance: This game is widely considered the hardest games in the series. It is said that the Belmont clan grows stronger with each new generation, and Trevor was the first to face Dracula (long before a parade of "the REAL first Belmont" {{Ret Con}}s started filing in), ergo the weakest Belmont to fight him.

* PutOnABus: Grant and the [=DaNasty=] family, besides brief mentions and doppelgangers and his drastically (unneeded and unexplained) redesigned appearance in ''Judgment''. The [=DaNasty=] family has never appeared in the proper games since Dracula's Curse. Hell, even ''Dawn of Sorrow'' has a mode where you can play Alucard and descendants of Trevor and Sypha. ** Since Grant's motivation is that Dracula killed his family, not being mentioned ever again [[FridgeHorror might be a sign that there isn't a [=DaNasty=] family anymore.]]

* ThatOneLevel: Stage 7-5. The only way to advance was to wait for the falling blocks to form a platform for you to ascend. If you got hit by a falling block, you were likely dead, and had to repeat the process from the start.

Poor grant
* ThatOneBoss: [[DittoFighter The Doppleganger]], who'll give you quite some trouble unless you use [[GoodBadBugs a rather well known glitch to defeat it.]] If you're playing a Trevor solo playthrough, you'd better have mad skillz.
