Castlevania - Dracula

Ha! Mankind. A cesspit of hatred and lies. Fight for them, then, and die for their sins!
~ Dracula

What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets! But enough talk... have at you!
~ Dracula to Richter Belmont

Enough of your nonsense! Away with your humanity! Stand with me as Prince of all the world!
~ Dracula to Alucard

Mumumuahahaaahaha, as ever the ally of worthless humans!
~ Dracula to Christopher Belmont

The powerful always judge the weak. The humans made their judgment of me, as well. Thus I sentenced them... to extinction. Sympathy is merely a form of weakness. You betrayed me, Hector... And for that, the punishment is death.
~ Dracula to his former general Hector

We have risked our lives and fought for the sake of God... But God mercilessly stole away the one I loved most... When all I ever wished for was Elisabetha's safety!! If limited life is God's decree, then I shall defy it!! And within that eternity, I shall curse Him forevermore!
~ Mathias to his former friend, Leon Belmont before becoming Dracula

Behold my true form and despair!
~ Dracula to Alucard

This stone was accidentally created when attempting to create the Philosopher's Stone which is supposedly capable of providing eternal youth. It has the following abilities as seen below.
    • Power Transfer: The Crimson Stone can grant Dracula an immense amount of power whenever he traps the soul of even the most powerful vampires. It is for this reason that Mathias Cronqvist (before he became Dracula) managed to trap the soul of none other but Walter Bernhard the moment Leon Belmont slayed him to the point where Death absorb Walter's soul into the stone, thus explaining to why it granted him immense power.
    • Death's Allegiance: Whoever possesses the Crimson Stone will automatically cause Death, the Deity of Death to pledge his allegiance to the holder of the stone itself.
    • Curse of the Vampire: As the Crimson Stone dose grant the benefits of trapping the soul of even the most powerful vampires is not without its curse. The possessor even causes the one whoever holds the Crimson Stone to become a vampire as well, thus causing the individual oneself to lose all of one's own humanity.
  • Dracula's Wand: Dracula can use this wand to summon pillars of fire with varying degrees in Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse.
  • Death's Scythe: When Dracula uses Death's Scythe, he will frequently toss and even swing this at opponents in melee that is composed of the life-force of his loyal servant Death.
  • Ebony Stone: The greatest treasure of the vampire that causes the Eternal Night. Because of this, it is always night whenever anyone is at the boundaries of Castlevania itself.
  • Fangs of Vald: Dracula can actually throw a par of his fangs at a target of his choice.


  • Arms Mastery: Even before he was reincarnated as Soma Cruz, Dracula has taught his son Alucard to become a powerful warrior in his own right. Because of this, Dracula can use various basic swords, spears, axe, melee punches and hammers as well as the first one to wield firearms ranging from handguns to heavy weapons. Some of the weapons Dracula is known to use can be upgraded to have divine properties.
  • Arms Critical Attack: Even before he was reincarnated as Soma, Dracula can project his Mana through his weapon and gives the weapons special property of damage, such as speed, strength, length or distance and in some cases even releasing a weapons hidden powers such as the Gungner's ability to shoot a powerful lightning bolt in a similar fashion to the Item Crush ability that Vampire hunters are capable of using with their sub-weapons.
  • Power of Dominance: This powerful ability is something that Dracula can cast whenever he soul steals a soul of a creature, he can control such individual afterwords. Due to the fact he can use this on even a deity as powerful as Death which allows him to grow in power the moment he uses it.
  • Summon Castlevania: Wherever Dracula goes, his dominion of the Crimson Stone allows the ancestral Demon Castle (also known as "Castlevania") to appear anywhere, and anytime he desires. In short, as long as he lives, Castlevania will never be destroyed.


  • Chaotic Realm: The Chaotic Realm is the realm of the source of darkness, and only Dracula can enter this specific realm. Dracula himself (which also includes Soma Cruz as he is the reincarnation of Drcaula), is the only one recorded to ever enter the Chaotic Realm. This realm also sports demons of various kinds that will willingly support Dracula's cause.
  • Immortality: Thanks to Walter's soul, Dracula is as good as immortal. Although he CAN be killed, he will simply be reincarnated, after either 100 years, although premature reincarnations are rather semi-common.
  • Invulnerability: Dracula possesses supermortal endurance. Typical weapons would almost certainly not harm him, similarly to Walter or they would inflict minimal damage. However, certain weapons and measures, such as Shanoa's "Dominus" attack, the Vampire Killer, the Alucard Sword and Spear are capable of harming him. Dracula is also (usually) invulnerable to attacks to any part of his body excluding his head which includes even his demon form as seen in Castlevania: Drcaula X Chronicles. Dracula's resurrection also depends on the number of people in the world who desire his return and.between 1797 to 1999, he was resurrected more frequently.
  • Instant Army: Dracula's dark powers affect even the dead, and are able to create personal "golems" out of skeletons of various kinds, a variety of elemental golems, and can also animate inanimate objects, such as armor or furniture. However, this instant army is not as powerful as summoned demons from the netherworld or the underworld.


  • Teleportation: Dracula can use this spell to teleport himself from one place to another, he will use this spell in addition to either casting another attack spell or use it to attempt to grab his opponent and drain his opponent's blood afterwords.
  • Illusions: Dracula can project illusions of himself which allows him to go at high speeds.
  • Hellfire: This powerful spell attack allows Dracula to cast fireballs in a 3 directional scatter shot, multiple waves, and is usually followed up by Dracula’s teleportation ability in order to mix opponents up.
  • Dark Inferno: This even more powerful spell will fire anywhere from 1 to 6 meteor-like orbs of magma based texture from Dracula's cape. As a defense mechanism he will also have 3 of these objects circle him harming anyone that touches them. In addition, these meteor-like orbs of magma can't be blocked nor destroyed.
  • Flaming Ghosts: Dracula will summon two flaming ghosts that will attempt to bombard themselves onto his chosen opponent. Should his opponent manage to score a hit on them for any reason, they will fall onto the ground and erupt in flames, dealing damage to anyone near by them.
  • Energy Pillars of Dark Flame: Dracula will use this powerful spell whenever he's dealing with enemies that are flying above him. In addition, he can also create pillars of dark flames through his illusions as they turn into them.
  • Flame Thrower: When casting this spell, Dracula will throw a flame that has a limited range
  • Flamenado: When casting this spell, Dracula will levitate a bit and create a flaming tornado around him, dealing damage to anyone caught in the radius.
  • Homing Dark Crystals: When casting this spell, Dracula will unleash dark crystals that will rise from the ground like a plant and will home on its chosen opponent.
  • Bolts of Lightning: This powerful spell attack allows Dracula to strike a series of vertical lightning bolts down on his foes.
  • Vacuum: When casting this spell, Dracula can manipulate the element of wind to draw his opponents closer to him.
  • Shock Waves: When casting this spell, Dracula unleashes two shock waves, one from beneath his feet and another around his body, dealing damage to anyone unfortunate caught in the radius.
  • Blood Spikes: When casting this spell, Dracula will unleash a total of four blood spikes below his opponent's feet.
  • Summon Bats: Dracula can summon a swarm of bats that will deal damage to anyone crossing their path.
  • Exploding Dark Sphere: When casting this spell, Dracula will throw a sphere that will explode with negative energy, dealing damage to anyone caught within the small radius (expect Dracula himself).
  • Soul Steal: This spell allows Dracula to absorb the energy of his opponent either by grabbing them or with a pseudo-area of effect spell. Not only does the move damage his opponent, it also heals him at every moment he uses it.
  • Dark Metamorphosis: This spell enhances Dracula's ability to steal life from enemies, it should be pointed out that these attacks require that the opponent in question has a blood supply to siphon from.
  • Blood Hydro Storm: This spell that Dracula casts has a very short casting duration period and instantly makes a large torrent of red blood said to, “move faster than bullets” rain down from the sky. Anything caught in this is guaranteed instant death, in fact because Dracula always makes sure he never gets caught in this rain many theorize he himself is vulnerable to it.
  • Demonic Megiddo: As a last ditch resort, Dracula will begin to cast this spell in five seconds which creates an all encompassing explosion that instantly kills virtually anything it touches (dealing 9,999 points of damage ingame which is always constant) and can remain intact for about as long as Dracula wants. Given enough time to charge this move almost guarantees his victory.


  • Bat Form: Dracula can take on bat form whenever he chooses.
    • Fireballs: Like his son Alucard, Drcaula can shoot fireballs as a Bat (despite the fact he hasn't been shown to do so, it is obvious that Dracula trained Alucard to do this).

    • Gas Cloud: Like his son Alucard, Dracula can form into a gas cloud which will deal poison damage to any enemy that finds oneself inside the cloud itself.
  • Ghost Form: In this form, Dracula can move at high speeds and move around in illusions. This is the only form where Dracula can take damage anywhere if you hit him.
  • Head form: In this form, Dracula can move around as a floating head and vomit huge drops of blood that deal damage to anyone caught in the vomit.
  • True Dracula Form: In this horrific form, Dracula can turn into a hideous demon. While in this form, Dracula can do the following as seen below.
    • Exploding Boomerangs: In True Dracula form, he can shoot out boomerangs that will explode upon impact, dealing damage to anyone caught in the blast.
    • Lasers: In True Dracula form, he can fire lasers that are capable of producing ground flames.

Other Notes

  • While Dracula wasn't shown to do so, he could utterly punch even a Belmont several feet away as Walter Bernhard did with Leon Belmont (Dracula could do this due to the fact he did absorbed Walter Bernhard's soul as Vampires in general are known for supernatural strength).
  • Dracula is highly resistant against fire-based attacks, this includes fire magic.
  • Dracula is highly resistant against electric-based attacks, this includes ones electric magical ones.
  • Dracula is immune to poison attacks due to being undead.
  • Dracula is immune to curses due to the fact the Heart of Vlad (as a relic) grants the user immunity to curses.
  • Dracula is immune to time altering effects.
  • Dracula can absorb dark-based (negative energy) attacks.
  • Despite the fact Dracula is weak against weapons (including fists and feet if able) and magic with holy/radiant properties, Dracula (in most cases) can only take damage if such weapons (including non-holy-radiant weapons) actually hit him at his head.
  • Whenever Dracula gets resurrected so as long as his connection with Chaos remains intact, he comes back stronger then he was before.


  • Repeatedly slayed by various Belmonts and a select few non-Belmonts such Quincey Morris, John Morris, Jonathan Morris and Charlotte Aulin as well as Shanoa.
  • Very well known for his arrogant sense of entitlement that can get the better of him.
  • If exposed to direct sunlight especially while weak enough, Dracula will eventually die (it should be pointed out he can still get resurrected or reincarnated through magical means. In most cases, once every 100 years).
  • Aside from the Vampire Killer, Dracula is known to be very vulnerable against weapons, magical spells and powers with holy/radiant property (including natural attacks/weapons), especially those that are as powerful as the Vampire Killer such as the Master Sword and above (radiant is composed of the element of fire and positive energy).



  • The Castlevania version of Dracula first came to being within the 1980s era, in his case being September 26, 1986 when Castlevania was first released for the Famicom Disk System.
  • Although Dracula in the original Castlevania series is based on Count Dracula from Bram Stoker's Dracula, it is clearly established he is actually Vlad III Drăculea (the real-life inspiration of Count Dracula) as mentioned in the instruction booklet of Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse. However, this was later retconned and made so Dracula was Mathias Cronqvist in the first place, according to the official material of Castlevania: Lament of Innocence and Castlevania: Curse of Darkness.
    • It is interesting to note that Mathias Cronqvist's name is based on Matthias Corvinus, the Hungarian King who was the second degree cousin to Vlad III. He was originally an ally of Vlad, but later imprisoned him for a while before Vlad married Mathias's cousin.
  • As Soma Cruz, Dracula can wield the Vampire Killer and is simply called "whip" in the inventory only as seen in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow if the Succubus glitch is used. Because this is a glitch, however, it is non-canon.
