An Alternate Mode is a special gameplay mode the player can usually unlock after they have completed the game in Normal Mode. These modes have been available in most games since the first titles in one way or another (such as being able to play the game a second time in Hard Mode right after completing it once). On newer titles, the player is usually given the option to start a new mode at the beginning and play with new characters (Castlevania: Circle of the Moon being an exception, as the player is instead given the option of getting all DSS cards from the beginning or start with enhanced stats).

Sometimes there are other requirements too; for example, in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, in order to unlock Richter, the player must first defeat the Whip's Memory and beat the game, and to unlock Old Axe Armor Mode, they must first defeat 1,000 Old Axe Armors and beat the game.
