"Finally, Dracula's Castle lies before you. Revenge is at hand. Can you feel the tension mounting?"
Michiru Yamane's comments on Curse of Darkness's Sound Select

Dracula's Castle is a music theme originally composed by Michiru Yamane for Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Appropriately, it is heard in the first section of Dracula's Castle, the Entrance. It came to be considered to be Alucard's theme, which was later confirmed by Konami in Castlevania Judgment.

The theme "Castlevania Reincarnation" from Castlevania: Lament of Innocence contains an arrangement of this track in addition to "Black Banquet" whenever a boss is fought in Joachim Mode in lieu of their usual themes.

Another theme, also named Dracula's Castle, was composed by Michiru Yamane for Castlevania: Curse of Darkness. Not surprisingly, it's the background music that plays while exploring Dracula's Castle.

In the game Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition, once all 20 challenges have been completed, a stage based off in Castlevania is unlocked as well as this theme, which plays during this stage.
