Dracula (ドラキュラ Durakyura?) is the main antagonist and final boss in Haunted Castle.

History[]

In the 17th century, Count Dracula was reawakened a century after his demise due to fear of him dissipating.[1] His first act upon awakening was causing storm clouds to envelop a nearby church, as well as ambushing a newlywed couple and abducting the bride, Selena, to feast upon her blood, requiring her husband Simon Belmont, of the Belmont Clan, to pursue the fiend to his demon castle.

Dracula eventually encountered Simon at the castle's keep and fought him with his various abilities, including turning into a swarm of bats. Simon managed to destroy the Count's body, although then his soul manifested itself as a giant bat-spewing head, with Simon ultimately eliminating the monster for good and saving Selena.

Boss battle[]

In Haunted Castle, Dracula changes his usual pattern by hovering in the air and throwing daggers instead. He also moves by transforming into a swarm of bats before dashing around the room; this move would also be implemented in many of his later incarnations and would also determine the way later versions of the Giant Bat would travel around a room. Players who reach this far in the game will be relieved to know that this time Dracula can be hit anywhere on his body and not just his head.
