|Better Stats (Alucard)||100%|
| When you fight Dracula with Belmont in the begin of the game DONT LOSE ANY HP |
and DONT TAKE ANY SUBWEAPONS(LIKE HOLY WATER) use only the fire whip and defeat
Dracula. You should do this entire process in about 50 seconds. If successful,
the stats Alucard starts with will be slightly (five points) higher than normal.
|Beat Doppleganger Easy||100%|
| Okay, for players who have a hard time with Doppleganger (the Alucard |
look-alike), hit him so he lands in a corner, and repeatedly jump at him and
attack. He will reliably jump into your blade repeatedly. This works on both the
Light and Dark Castle Doppleganger.
Before you fight the doppleganger in the 2nd castle, equip the Medusa Shield.
Hit the doppleganger with the Medusa Shield, and he will turn to stone. Attack
him mercilessly with your weapon until he turns back to flesh, then use the
shield on him again.
|Room 7: Pit to the Catacombs||100%|
| Use the Demon Familiar to flip the switch after the Cerberas Boss to reveil a |
room. Do the same in the inverted castle.
|Explore an Inverted Castle||100%|
| If you defeat the possessed Richter Belmond in Dracula's Keep, you will see the |
ending. But what you may not realise is that this is the 'bad end', and you've
only seen half the game! To get to the real ending:
First, make sure you've gotten both rings from Maria. The 1st you recieve
after defeating the Succubus in the 'Nightmare' stage. The 2nd is past the
hall with all the spikes in the Cathedral (you need the SpikeBuster Armor from
Equip both rings at once in the room with the big clock, and the floor will
open. Down in this 'lair' Maria is waiting for you once again. She'll give you a
vital piece of information.
Once all this is done, then go to Dracula's Keep and meet Richter. He'll attack
you, but you will now be able to see a green orb floating above him. Attack the
orb, but _don't_kill_Richter_ (hint: the Sword Companion will serve you well
here) After a bit of attacking, the orb will break open, revealing everyone's
favorite loathesome 18th/19th century warlock: Shaft!
This also breaks Shaft's spell, freeing Richter from the spirit of Dracula.
Alucard will tell Richter and Maria to escape while they can as the clouds swirl
and open up, revealing a mirror-image of the Evil Castle! Shaft escapes into the
Inverted Castle, and of course it's Alucard's duty to chase after him!
But just when you think you know the layout already, you find some crucial
elements of the castle have been rearranged, it's stocked with bigger and badder
enemies, and even the music has changed!
|Easy Familiar Experience||100%|
| Ok, easy way, but a bit time consuming, to get experience for all your |
familiars. I believe you have to have it beaten once first. but I may be wrong.
As you start the game, go through like you normally would. But this time, don't
but alot from the librarian. Only get the Jewel of Open, and 1 or 2 Library
Cards. The proceed with the game.
Once you get in the inverted castle, keep going and get AS MUCH MONEY AS
POSSIBLE. Once you get 500,000 go back to the librarian, and purchase the
Duplicator. Then go BACK to the inverted castle, and equip it. By this time, you
should have at least ONE of the Power of Sire items. Equip that as well. Voila,
you have an infinite supply now as long as you have the duplicator equipped.
Now go to the room in the inverted church thing (forgot the name off hand), and
enter the room with the big sword that is surrounded by spears and shields. Use
the Power of Sire, then leave the room, and go back in, use it again, and so on
and so forth.
|The Shield Rod Trick||100%|
| If you have the Shield Rod you can do this trick. Equip the rod and any shield. |
Now, all you have to do is hit the left hand button and the right hand button
(normaly the O and Square buttons) simultaniously and you will do a special move
that has to do with the shield you have equiped. Every shield does something
different. Experement with different shields to find out which one you like.
Also, when you are equiped with the shield rod if you press back, foward, then
attack Alucard launches a star from the rod. It must do something besides look
really cool, but I haven't messed around with it that much to find out.
|210.1% Score in the Japanese Version||100%|
| To get 210.1%, go to the Royal Chapel in the 1st castle. Go to the long |
vertical place where the confession room (the room with the chairs and you hear
the bells) is at your right and the left leads to the large sword. Stand in the
left side, but don't go in, equip the sword familiar and do half-circle forward
and up-left and hold UP for 2 seconds then press DOWN + SQUARE (Sword
When the sword is spinning transform into a bat and go to the left doorway. If
your timing is right you should go *through* the wall and be able to fly around
IMPORTANT: To obtain 210% you must have your sword familiar maxed out to level
99 with 99 experience points. If this is not acheived, the cheat doesnt work.
|Fiddle with the Logo||100%|
| When the words NOW LOADING are on screen, you can manipulate them with the |
| Here is an easy way to kill Galamoth. First find the Alucard Shield and the |
Shield Rod. Equip them both before you take him on. As soon as he starts to
stand up, activate the Shield Rod combo (Square+Circle). When you stop flashing,
run toward Galamoth so only the Alucard Shield is touching his leg. Great deals
of HP will be taken away from him. I tried this and ended up killing him in 8
|Get the Holy Glasses and all Four Endings||100%|
| To get the Holy Glasses you need the gold ring (after beating the Succubus in |
Nightmare, located in a side path in the long tunnel to the underground) and the
silver ring (in the hall of spikes in the tower, you need the Spike Buster armor
from the underground.) Take these to the clock tower and equip them. You'll get
a L-O-N-G sequence before it lets you go down. Follow the path to find Maria,
she'll give you the Holy Glasses.
1. Simply go to the castle tower and defeat Richter without meeting Maria.
Alucard will escape the destroyed castle and say a few things before going back
to his eternal sleep.
2. Get the Holy Glasses and defeat Richter. Maria will have also escaped and
tell you she's continuing her search for what happened to Richter.
For the 3rd and 4th endings, do this first: Get the Holy Glasses and equip them,
but DON'T kill Richter. Instead, attack the green orb above him until it
shatters. From here you will go to the inverted castle.
3. Defeat Dracula with anything below 200% and you will see Maria and Richter
waiting for you outside the castle. Maria will decide not to follow Alucard and
will return with Richter.
4. Get AT LEAST 199.1% and defeat Dracula. The others will be waiting, but Maria
will decide to follow Alucard and try to help him cope with what he is.
|Axe Lord Armor||100%|

| Put the Castlevania CD into any regular CD player. Play Track 2, and you will hear |
a special song.
| To gain access to the excellent soundtracks, win the game (fully, with over |
190%) with Alucard and restart a brand new game with Alucard (do not cover over
the old one). When you get to the Librarian, simply walk up to him and a music
select option will appear with the 'buy/sell' box.

|Librarian's Secret Stash||98%|
| To get the librarian's secret stash under his chair you must have the super jump |
relic. After you have obtained this item go to the room under his. There will be
a narrow vertical space that (when you jump into it) will lead to a Life Max Up.
Now jump repeatedly without touching the floor, but make sure the librarian's
chair goes back on the floor. If this is done correctly you will 1st get the
Ring of Arcana. If you contunue to do this you will then obtain the Dracula
Tunic and after that the Axelord Armor will follow.

The 2nd one is later in the stage. When you are in courtyard with the Vahalla

the same in Akmodan's Chamber's (Orlox's Room in the Inverted Castle)
Room 6: Clock Tower and Reverse Clock Tower
In the room before the Birdman boss, Hack the right wall at the top of the room.
| There is an interesting effect if you cast the Hellfire spell, (up, down, |
down-right,right and square) then press and hold UP, AFTER the teleport, but
BEFORE the 3 fireballs go off. It shoots TWO of the black fireballs
demonstrated by Dracula in the opening scene. As far as I can tell, it does no
more damage, and costs the same, but it DOES punch through targets rather than
| After beating the game once, start a new game and enter your name as X-X!V"Q. |

|Effortless Experience Gain||96%|
| To get effortless experience follow these simple steps: |
play through the game like normal until you get your bat familar.
at this point go back to near the start of the game where the zombies keep
coming out of the ground.
then all you do is stand on the step on the stairs where the zombies can not
reach you and turn your bat familiar on. Just make sure that you are far
enough away that the zombies won't hurt you if your familar misses one of
The bat familar will kill most of the zombies that appear, also make sure you
are looking in the direction of the zombies or the bat will not hit them.
The best part about this trick is that the familar will kill the zombies and
both he and you will get the experience making this absolutely simple in gaining
levels. In 3 hours my bat went from level 2 to level 60!
|Heaven Sword Special Attack||96%|

knights that toss their swords at you). If you have 2 of these, equip one in
each hand and press both square and circle to activate the special attack.
|Keep Alucard's Items||94%|
| For this cheat to work, you must 1st do the "Enhanced Luck" cheat by typing |
X-X!V"Q as your profile name at the beginning of the game.
After the "Prologue: Bloodlines" scene, at the beginning where you will play as
Alucard, go to the room. Just before the room where you will be confronted by
Death and he takes away your items. The room with 2 wolves in it. Kill the
first wolf and jump over the 2nd one. Stay where you are with Alucard facing
the next room (it doesn't matter whether you get wounded or not just jump over
the 2nd wolf and stand still). Wait for the wolf to attack you. If you do
this right, the wolf will send Alucard flying across the next room completely
skipping Death and preventing him from taking Alucard's original items. Do not
go back to meet Death or you will lose your items.
