Trivia / Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

Go To

  • Actor Allusion:

  • Ascended Meme: Of a sort. The Crissaegrim earned a reputation as being a Game-Breaker in Symphony. Fittingly enough, it serves as Alucard's default weapon in this continuity.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • “(Sad hungry) Burrito” for Gabriel's aged form.
    • “Buttwings” for Satan.
    • “Trevorcard” for, guess.
    • “Skullface” for Agreus, obviously. Death can fall into this category, too.
  • No Dub for You: Even though Castlevania: Lords of Shadow had been dubbed to Japanese sometime after its initial release, both the interquel and the sequel, for whatever reason, could not boast of the same. Sure, they've been subbed, but dubbed?
  • The Other Darrin: Matthew Clancy replaces Jason Sampson in his role of the Chupacabras.
  • Pandering to the Base: During the tutorial chapter, Gabriel delivers the memetic "What is a man?" line from Symphony of the Night with no clear context.

  • Talking to Himself: For self-evident reasons, Robert Carlyle provides voice for both Dracula and his fiendish doppelgänger, Inner Dracula.
  • Troubled Production: An anonymous employee of Mercury Steam sent out a letter detailing the impressively enormous amounts of Executive Meddling by head of studio Enric Álvarez. According to this employee, Álvarez's ego supposedly grew out of control after the success of the first Lords of Shadow, to the point he didn't care at all about the visions of the artists and programmers in the team. It doesn't help that over thirty members of the staff were fired shortly after the game was released.
  • What Could Have Been: Many things were cut, such as a final boss fight with a giant seven-headed serpent-like creature, implied to be Satan's true form, and a playable dragon form.
    • Alucard's Revelations abilities, the Timeless Vision, was originally intended to be Dracula's.
    • The Navigators would also be Dracula's means of transportation, but were scrapped in favor of the Map Rooms.

    • One of the relics — called Stolas' Feathers — was scrapped mid-production and its Experience Booster properties were given to the Stolas' Clock relic instead.
    • A text file from the game's data reveals Victor was planned to be called Julius.
