* 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.
* Woolseyism: Believe it or not, the audio for the cutscenes sound different between the PSP release and the original PC Engine version. This is most notable during the Annette's Fate cutscene where Shaft in the PC Engine version teleports into the chamber, while in the PSP release he walks in unnoticed.
