Richter Belmont: Die, monster! You don't belong in this world!
Dracula: It was not by my hand that I am once again given flesh. I was called here by...humans...who wished to pay me tribute!
Richter: Tribute!?! You steal men's souls and make them your slaves!
Dracula: Perhaps the same could be said of all religions...
Richter: Your words are as empty as your soul! Mankind ill needs a savior such as you!
Dracula: What is a man?! A miserable little pile of secrets! But enough talk, HAVE AT YOU!!!
Richter Belmont: It's over! This world was not meant for the likes of you!
Dracula: My own powers did not bring about my own resurrection. It was greed, the greed of you men which summoned me back. And is justice not decided by might alone?
Richter: Only you would make such a selfish claim! Humanity is guided by their shared convictions. They seek only each other, coming together, and moving forward.
Dracula: Oh, but the truth is that humanity also bears burgeoning desires within them, which leads them to submit to their religious creeds, yes?
Richter: Mere power is not what leads mankind. Respect and a merciful heart: these are what truly guide humanity!
Dracula: Preposterous. Which one of our claims is true? I shall give you the answer, along with death's embrace!
— Fan translation of the Original Japanese Intro in Symphony of the Night
Count Dracula: Belmont, son of Belmont, I've been waiting for you. note
Richter Belmont: Dracula, die now and leave this world! You'll never belong here!
Dracula: Oh...but this world invited me. Your own kind called me forth with praise and tribute.
Richter: Tribute?! You're a thief! You steal men's souls, their freedom!
Dracula: Freedom is always sacrificed to faith, good hunter. Or are you truly here by choice?
Richter: All I'm here for is you. To Hell with your heresy! You're nothing but a blight on mankind!
Dracula: Ha! Mankind, a cesspit of hatred and lies. Fight for them, then, and die for their sins!
— The Dracula X Chronicles version intro
Count Dracula: Once again, the blood of Belmont has defeated me... Perhaps this too is part of my fate.
Richter Belmont: Death to you! The world is not yours to exist in!
Dracula: It is not by my own power that I am resurrected. It is the greed of humanity which calls me back. And thus, by might, I rule! Might becomes the one and only justice in this world!
Richter: Of all the self-serving claptrap! The same basic faith drives all people to seek, to come together, to move forward! That, surely, can't be an evil thing!
Dracula: And yet, here I am. Do you not have any desires?
Dracula: It is by your desires that you humans prosper, and it is your faith that has ruled you! Considering that, can you really call me evil?
Richter: But people cannot be ruled by power alone! The sacred, the honorable, the loved. Those things can rule humanity. Something evil will eventually fall to ruin!
Dracula: I see! Perhaps you're right. Hahahahahahaha! We shall meet again, blood of Belmont! Hahahahahahahahahahaha!
