Alas, Poor Villain: Dracula got off particularly bad not because he saw his cronies get creamed, not because Richter Belmont is a "fucking ass", not because he couldn't get to eat his favorite meal, not because he was looking forward to the day and didn't get to enjoy it, not because Richter spammed Hydro Storm, not because Richter killed him (again), not even because he was forced into what looks like a Karmic Death instead of taking the Mercy Kill he wanted, but because he meets Werewolf in the afterworld.
Angrish: Dracula constantly goes into this whenever things go bad for him... which is always. When angered, he rarely makes a coherent sentence. See Cluster F-Bomb below.
Animated Actors: Possibly suggested by Dracula refusing to deliver his infamously bombastic speech from SotN (he later does say the line, only to put a spin on it at the end). Richter, however, goes charging ahead with his lines, not even listening to Dracula's rant. Dracula spares no time in pointing out that Richter's responses don't even match up to what he's (Dracula) saying.
Back for the Dead: Lampshaded by Death when Richter comes waltzing in to his throne room and Dracula notes that he's only been alive for maaaaaybe five minutes.
This is especially amusing to anyone who is aware of what actually happens in Rondo of Blood — it's the one game where Dracula actually didn't attack immediately after coming back to life, instead biding his time for about a year before targeting Richter's hometown.
Death: "Dracula! Belmont just took down Werewolf. Dracula: "FUCKING USELESS-ASS WEREWOLF! I pay that bitch so much money to take down Belmont—TH-THAT'S IT! He just lost his boss status; HE'S NOW A NORMAL-ASS ENEMY! Just like all those axe armors!"
Light Is Not Good: The Belmonts keep stealing Dracula's food and cash, and in this case, Richter is attacking Dracula within five minutes of his awakening, before he's had time to do anything more evil than eating pot roast.
Ironically, Rondo of Blood, the game where Richter comes from (the "What is a man?" speech in Symphony of the Night's prologue also takes place during Rondo of Blood's endgame) is the one game where Dracula actually gets proactive after his revival and attacks Richter's village.
