* Dracula, (on the verge of defeat,) tricking Nergal Meslamstea into entering Castlevania by luring him down a shadowy corridor, effectively de-powering the second acolyte by a huge degree and rendering him vulnerable to a satisfying beat-down.

* This version of Dracula is by far one of the most action and athletic-oriented Draculas ever. Whether he's facing down legions of mooks by himself and coming out on top, to doing insane shit, like leaping out and off of a moving train that's about too crash into a cavern wall, this Dracula is the ultimate undead action hero, on top of being a scary bastard. This is a Dracula who doesn't let all of his minions do all the hard work. This is a Dracula that reminds us that he's a warrior first and foremost. Being a GodOfEvil is just a secondary benefit.

* Meta-wise: This is the first, and so far only, game where you play as DRACULA, not in a fighting game [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow his reincarnation]] this is a PROPER CASTLEVANIA GAME, and almost all the power that premise alone compels. Everything you see her? Sure a Belmont would have killed some of these monsters but the ones like Satan's Acolytes? Only someone on Dracula's level could ever hope to truly fight them on even grounds and WIN. This game alone shows WHY Dracula is the series BigBad.

** Lets give Roland some credit. He ''matches'' Dracula's prayer word for word, and that's right after he held the Prince of Darkness off in single combat.

** The final duel with Zobek's bodyguard also counts. Alucard has the bodyguard beat in raw skill, and when the bodyguard tries to heal, Alucard uses his wolf form to pounce on the bodyguard, finishing him off.

-->'''Dracula:''' The roots of evil run deep. Irreversibly so in the heart's of men. It is their [[HumansAreBastards true nature.]] Their destiny... I was their most devoted warrior. A ''Champion of Light''. But I fell. Fell into darkness, and now... I am feared, as ''The Prince of Darkness''. [[DramaticIrony Ironic?]] Don't you think? The mighty Zobek hides from me like the scared rat he is! Even Satan himself is too afraid to leave the pits of Hell and fight ''me''! But if I die now, Alucard. They will simply [[LesserOfTwoEvils take my place...]] Evil, ''will'' prevail. It is the natural order. The world... ''(Holds up Ronceval's crucifix.)'' Is like this. ''(Snaps the relic in half and casts the pieces down.)'' Abandon, all, hope.

* After their free-fall fight / meteor move, Satan!Alucard tries to mock Dracula, goading him that he wouldn't dare kill his own son ''again'' just to kill him. Gabriel promptly tells him that ''[[ShutUpHannibal "you - don't - know - me, Satan!"]]'' And brings the cross down towards his chest in slow-mo. Satan, believing that Dracula is serious, [[DirtyCoward flees Alucard's body,]] which is just what Dracula wanted. Dracula than grabs him by the throat, pins him against a gate and impales him with the combat cross, killing Satan once and for all.

* Near the end of the final battle against Satan's first acolyte, the monstrous daughter of Satan charges down our hero. What does he do? Run? Hide? No, he ''counter'' ''charges'' the giant monster while drawing his Void Sword. BadAss doesn't describe it.

Added DiffLines:

** And how did Dracula trick Satan into believing he was serious? As he was bringing the cross down, he delivered a SlasherSmile so utterly frightening, that you could actually see Satan!Alucard's face slowly shift into a beautiful OhCrap expression. ''Dracula utterly terrified Satan with a facial expression.''
