Go To

Castlevania RPG is a sprite comic that spoofs Castlevania and other Role Playing Games. It was originally supposed to be a co-operative effort alternating between sprite comics by the main author and his sister, who also writes and draws Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures. It's set in the same universe but with original characters that were adapted from a Forum Role-Playing Game done by the creator. The story somewhat parallels Castlevania circa-Circle of the Moon, but mostly the cast just gets into random hijinks involving stopping Dracula and all evil, along with getting some beef jerky, catnip and booze. The cast includes:


  • Darkmoon: An ensouled vampire with an insatiable lust for money and barmaids.
  • Alec: An extremely androgynous Holy Warrior with a penchant for jerky.
  • Katrina: Mage-turned-Catgirl via a curse.
  • Princess: The comic's requisite princess—who happens to have lesbian tendencies.
  • Angel: An Archangel sent by God to aid the heroes on their quest.

This webcomic provides examples of:

  • Bad Future: The 1000th comic special shows what could have happened if Darkmoon had not used time travel hijinks to stop Evil!Alec from summoning the Elder God. Essentially, Alec and Princess are dead, Darkmoon himself is MIA, Angel has been possessed by the Elder God and now leads its forces, and Katrina is leading the remnants of humanity in a Hopeless War against them.
    • Alec gets trapped in another one where Dracula actually managed to succeed in taking over the world, killed the rest of the party except for Golem, and is actually competent.
  • Honor Before Reason: Katrina forcing Shaft to restore the Cat Girl curse he'd just lifted, because she thought the cure had to be earned with good deeds.
  • Running Gag: A bunch:
    • People looking for Link based on the color of his clothing right when he changes to a different color.
    • Everbody confusing the towns Jova, Veros, and Ondol with one another.
    • The "Lusty Siren" tavern and Darkmoon inevitably doing something to earn a chase from an angry mob
    • Darkmoon's lack of navigational ability.
    • Link getting dragged to Hell
    • The landmark strips are often dragged out.
    • When asked what kind of chicken Bucky is, the response is a cooking style for chicken.
    • Alec is thought to be a girl constantly.
    • Angel keeps forgetting he has angelic powers, mostly opening portals when the heroes are trapped somewhere.
  • Satan: Appears in the comic, then gets replaced by Sindra.
