* NoExportForYou: The original PC Engine version, thanks to the failure of the console's American counterpart, TurboGrafx16. The game's inclusion in ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaTheDraculaXChronicles Dracula X Chronicles]]'' for the PSP and later its stand-alone re-release for the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} Virtual Console would remedy this.
* [[MarthDebutedInSmashBros Shaft Debuted in Symphony of the Night]]:
** Since Shaft was cut from the only port of this game to appear outside Japan[[note]]Before ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaTheDraculaXChronicles Dracula X Chronicles]]''[[/note]]. Pity he was an important character in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight''.
** Some fans of ''Symphony'' are known to ask why Maria keeps showing up as [[TokenMiniMoe a young girl]] in games like ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin Portrait of Ruin]]'', ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaHarmonyOfDespair Harmony of Despair]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaJudgment Judgment]]''. ''Symphony'' was the only game to portray her as anything close to an adult.
