Ghost Dancers are enemies in the Castlevania series. They are the spirits of nobles that dance endlessly with great elegance in aristocratic abandon.


Dead nobles that dance together eternally. Ghost Dancers first appeared in Super Castlevania IV, spinning around each other through walls and ceilings. These were essentially a paired version of the Dead Nobleman and Dead Noblewoman.

A boss version, known as the Dancing Spectres, also exists which waltz throughout the room, making stops to hurl three rapiers at the player. In addition, they can also draw out their own rapiers and charge through the air. In the North American version, they are individually known as Paula Abghoul and Fred Askare.

Ghost Dancers reappeared in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, where they move up and down across long horizontal distances and then switch directions. In Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow and later games, they stop when they get to the end of their movement range and split apart for a moment. Killing one of the ghosts causes both of them to disappear. They are weak to Holy and resistant to striking, slashing, and freezing attacks.
