Dwelling of Doom is a music theme composed by Konami Kukeiha Club for Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. It is the background theme that plays inside of all mansions in the game.

The NES version sounds more electronic compared to the Famicom version. The latter is also used as the final boss theme against Dracula during Classic Mode of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate when playing as Pac-Man.
