Not to be confused with Doppelganger.

Fake Sypha is a recurrent boss in the Castlevania series. She is a zombie impersonating Sypha Belnades.


Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Fake Sypha appears as part of the trio of bosses fought in the Reverse Colosseum, along with Fake Grant and Fake Trevor. These fakes were created to confuse Alucard, as Sypha, Grant and Trevor were Alucard's allies in Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (LCD handheld)

Fake Sypha appears once again in this LCD handheld rendition of Symphony of the Night, although this time she is known as the "Succubus". This was probably a misnaming error by the production team and should not be confused with the proper Succubus character and enemy appearing in other games of the series.

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

Fake Sypha once again appears with Fake Grant and Fake Trevor in the sixth floor of the Nest of Evil. She does not actively follow the player, preferring to float in midair and launch attacks from there.


  • Holy Flame - Fake Sypha launches a straight line of flames that can be avoided by staying on the ground.
  • Break - A cloud of gas is created which spreads out from underneath Sypha. The gas will petrify the player on contact.
  • Dark Wind - Fake Sypha fires a volley of purple balls that deal Dark damage.
  • Resurrect - If Fake Trevor has been killed, Fake Sypha can summon another copy of him. However, this copy is much weaker and can be killed with just one or two hits.
