Dead nobles have appeared in several Castlevania games. These aristocratic ghosts can float about, disappear and reappear, dance together, and wield rapiers.

A host of dead nobles appeared in Super Castlevania IV in the elegant halls of the castle. The dead nobleman floats towards you in a horizontal line and may disappear, only to reappear from the other direction and make another pass at you. The dead noblewoman will move about in a circular pattern in the air, often staying out of reach of the whip, and then swoop down for an attack. In a later section, these ghosts are found dancing together. They spin around each other while moving up and down and back and forth through the floors and walls. At the end of the stage is a boss version of these dancers, dubbed the Dancing Spectres and in English called Fred Askare And Paula Aghoul. These periodically charge towards Simon, each wielding a rapier, one facing forward, and one facing upwards.

The dancing version of these ghosts reappeared in many games, called Ghost Dancers appeared in several games starting with Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow. Rapier wielding male nobles (without their dancing partner) reappeared in Castlevania: Curse of Darkness, called the Dead Fencer and Dead Baron.
