Count Dracula is the main antagonist of Vampire Killer.


Dracula had previously been quelled by Christopher Belmont, of the Belmont Clan, exactly one century earlier. He was revived via a black mass, announcing his arrival in an Easter night via ominous clouds and a thunderstorm. However, he was largely reduced to a skeleton by this time.

He was eventually confronted by Christopher's descendant, Simon Belmont. After briefly being beheaded, his body dissolved, although he later possessed a nearby painting and attempted to assault Simon through it. In the end, Simon managed to put Dracula to sleep once again and the town restored its peace.[1]

Enemy Data

Although he looks more like a skeleton in this game, Count Dracula's attack pattern is the same as in Castlevania, as he teleports around the room and shoots fireballs in groups of three. Again, only his head is vulnerable.

Upon beating the first form, like in Castlevania, his head will be knocked off. His body will then explode into red clouds before the painting in the background suddenly moves. When Count Dracula possesses the painting in the background, he will spit bats in wave patterns, occasionally pausing to allow Simon to strike the jewel in his forehead.

  2. IGA: FC版とX68000版ですが、X68000版はFC版をベースにアレンジを加えたものになっています。ゲームのアレンジは、その時に応じて、色々と施されるものですので、正直どちらも正統であると思ってよいのではないかと思っています。結論として、ドラキュラと戦い勝つというシナリオで、中間部分の切り抜きが違うと考えてもよいのではないかと考えています。スーパーファミコン版も違いますし…。どうしてもと考えるのであれば、FC版を尊重すべきかと考えます。 Translation: "Regarding the Famicom version and the X68000 version, the X68000 version is an arrangement based on the Famicom version. The arrangement of a game is the kind of thing where you add a lot of different things as needed, so honestly speaking, it think they both should be considered legitimate. In conclusion, I think they should be considered as the same scenario of fighting to defeat Dracula, just with a different middle part. The Super Famicom version is different as well... If you simply must have a clear answer, the Famicom version must be given deference."
