Death is an in-game event which represents when the player dies. It generally occurs when the player's health has been depleted, although it can also be caused by other factors; sometimes even leading to alternate endings. Depending on the game, the player either gets a game over immediately or after using up all extra lives.

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance

Juste Belmont (or Maxim Kischine in Maxim Mode) fades away while knocked back and emitting blood splatters.

Soma Cruz (or Julius Belmont in Julius Mode) will be knocked back as he emits blood. If the player dies while fighting Chaos, it instead shows Soma sitting at Dracula's seat, with the implication that Soma became the next Dark Lord, while Julius Belmont confronts him and alludes to the promise the two made about dispatching Soma if he ever became Dracula.

Leon Belmont (or Joachim Armster in Joachim Mode, Pumpkin in Pumpkin Mode) merely keels over, although blood splatter does cover the screen before showing the "Game Over" message.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

Shanoa (or Albus in Albus Mode) is lifted in the air, with blood spilling out of him or her. In some cases, the bosses will react in a specific way. Against Albus, he'll keel over and say "Shanoa... kill me..." Against Death, he'll say that Shanoa's "candle" has been snuffed out. If the player uses the Dominus glyphs against Barlowe, he'll mention that she shouldn't have given him that much trouble.

Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls

The player character (Alucard/Genya Arikado, Simon Belmont, Charlotte Aulin, Maria Renard, and/or Shanoa) are knocked into the air, releasing blood and fading away in red, only to have a massive explosion of blood as the "failed" message pops up.
