Belmont's Power and Sypha Belnades[edit]

People need to know and understand that two sources of the Belmont's "super-human" power is the "Belmont Warlord Chromosomes", with the Vampire Killer Whip.

Why doesn't Sypha have her own article? Should she have one? Considering that she married Trevor, and continued the Belmont bloodlines with magic. Not to mention the fact that the Belnades famliy come a close second to the Belmonts, and fights alongside them in the long battle against Dracula.(LonerXL (talk) 18:18, 13 December 2008 (UTC))

We shouldn't use the hack-translation's picture[edit]

I don't think that we should use the picture from the hack-translation of the game. I think we should stick to official versions whenever possible. -- Myria 05:36, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

  • Never mind, it's not that. It's just the 2 logos stacked together for illustration. -- Myria 05:39, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

Can we please have more infomation about special effects in the Japanese version?[edit]

The trival section mentioned that the Japanese version had slightly better graphic and that background in many stages had special effects not seen in the american version. i think some examples would be good. Can someone provide some.

Some examples off the top of my head:

  • Moving sky and lightning in the background of stage 3
  • Lighting also flashes during the boss fight of stage 3, if you choose to finish the stage
  • Moving sky is also present in the first block of the final stage

I don't believe the lightning during the stage 3 boss is present in the US version, but the moving sky background definitely isn't.

Anyone else notice that according to the dates this game was released two years before the second installment?

I think you're reffering to Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge, which was an entirely different game for the Game Boy Axe995 05:32, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Release Date[edit]

I updated the North American release date from September 1990 to September 1, 1990 based on information I found at Sports, Video Games, Politics. --Brahman 23:19, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Animated movie canceled?[edit]

The link to the Dracula's Curse animated movie by James Jean and Warren Ellis is a dead link. Does this mean the movie is canceled? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:30, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Development section...[edit]

Bad grammar and redundancy talking about the chip. Needs rewritten

Syfa is a dude in this game...[edit]

In this game, the character's name is "Syfa", and is referred to in the game's dialog box as a male ("Take him with you? Leave him behind?"). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:20, 17 July 2010 (UTC) (talk) 17:34, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "CastlevaniaAndContra":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 08:32, 11 August 2015 (UTC)


I realize this comment is 8 years later, but that isn't true. If you get to the end, it clearly says that Sy(ph/f)a is in fact female, if you bring her to the end. I'm pretty sure it was intended to make her seem like a male, but reveal that she's a girl at the end, similar to Samus from Metroid. While it didn't exist at the time of the original comment, there is a Netflix series where it references the same thing.

To quote the end of game sequence (as I just finished replaying it right now on my 3ds), "Syfa, the Vampire Killer has had a bad life, but since she met Trevor, she is beginning to feel more comfortable with herself". — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:10, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
