Dracula's Castle is a stage featured in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is the home stage of Simon and Richter Belmont. They're both fought here in their unlock battles.


The stage features two platforms, one to the left and one to the right, that move up and down. All the way to the right side is a set of stairs whose bottom half is broken off. Candles in the background can be destroyed, dropping items. Each end of the stage is surrounded by the darkness. Dracula's coffin appears in the background. Star KOs cannot happen on this stage due to the background wall obscuring their would-be victim.

When hazards are turned off, the two platforms do not move and the candles never appear.

Background characters[]

During gameplay, various boss characters from Castlevania will make an appearance (mainly from the first game, which these stages are based upon), including The Creature and Flea Man (also known as "Igor"), the Mummy, Medusa, the Werewolf, Carmilla (in her giant mask form from Simon's Quest) and Death. Each enemy has their own entrance based on how they appeared during the original boss battle (such as the Werewolf leaping through a window). All these characters stay in the background, which means they don't interrupt the fight at all, even with stage hazards turned on.

When the moon disappears in the darkness and bats gather around the coffin lying there, lightning will flash, revealing either Dracula or Kid Dracula's shadow in the middle of a castle.

Dracula himself appears as a boss in Adventure Mode: World of Light, in a boss arena resembling the original Dracula's Castle, but with a flat and empty layout.


Main article: Dracula's Castle

Dracula's Castle has been the primary setting for the entire Castlevania series. Even though a fair amount of the titles don't actually take place within the castle until the later stages, it is a constant presence in one way or another, nonetheless.

A common fixture of the castle is Dracula's throne room, usually located at the tallest point of the castle, with an outside (probably magically supported) staircase leading upward to the left and with a clock tower nearby. Said clock tower is usually a previous area the player must first traverse through, with Death generally acting as its guardian.

The castle is at least as old as Dracula (probably much older) and has a new layout in each game. This oddity is explained in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, where Alucard explains that the castle is a "creature of Chaos" that takes a new form with each rebirth it and its master go through.

Another common occurrence of the castle is that it almost always crumbles (or is disassembled in another outlandish manner) upon Dracula's defeat at an enemy's hands.

Dracula's Castle - Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - 02

Dracula's Castle is a sub-area that can be visited in Adventure Mode: World of Light in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The region's design comes from Dracula's Castle in the original Castlevania. It is located in the southwest region of the Dark Realm.

Ghosts appear in the castle, transporting their target to the castle gates on contact.



Captive fighters[]

  • Daisy: Daisy is trapped behind a ghost. She is the first fighter that the player comes across in the area.
  • Wario: Wario is located after Daisy. He has been trapped behind a platform that can rotate. Flip the rotating platform with a switch to reach his location.
  • Ridley: Ridley is trapped behind two ghosts. His location can be accessed if you defeat the spirit blocking the cannonball, load that into the cannon that faces the upper right, and open fire, knocking out the ghosts in the way.
  • Ken: Ken is in the area with the many rooms, but his location is blocked by a ghost.
  • Dark Pit: Dark Pit is not surrounded by ghosts, but he is deeper in the castle. To access his area, go to the roof.
  • Robin: Flip the switch that Wario was blocked by. Robin is here, but he is blocked by a ghost. His location can be accessed if you send a cannonball bouncing off a platform into the ghost.
  • Richter: Use the cannons to clear out the ghosts. Richter spawns near the boss area. You can go to his location beforehand, but his battle is inaccessible until the ghosts are cleared.


  • Dracula: Dracula is located at the castle top.
