Koji "IGA" Igarashi removed this game from canon
when he became producer of the series. His reason for doing this is debated among fans.
Castlevania Legends provides examples of:
- Action Girl: Sonia.
- Babies Ever After: The best ending reveals that she is pregnant, and her child will continue the Belmont legacy. That would be Trevor, of course.
- Bonus Boss: The Executioner.
- Chest Monster: There are some candles that hide monsters in them.
- Magic Knight: Sonia uses magic in battle while wielding the tried and true whip.
- Multiple Endings: There are two different endings, a short, standard one, and an extended one that is seen by obtaining all five secret items in the game before finishing it.
- Secret Level: The dungeon area, which can be found by whipping a certain candle in Stage 5 to open a secret passage.
