Grant Danasty (グラント・ダナスティ Guranto Danasuti?) is a playable character in Castlevania Judgment.

Within the storyline of this game, apparently he was in love with Sypha Belnades, but after seeing her married to Trevor Belmont, he did not attend their wedding, and is still dissatisfied with it. After Grant kills the Time Reaper, the Time Rift closes and he returns in Valachia, where he continues to help people rebuild their towns after the battle against Dracula. It is also said that people don't remember him as a Vampire killer, like Trevor, but as the man who rebuilt Valachia. Despite being one of the most drastically changed designs in Judgment, his personality was kept mainly intact.

Grant's theme in Castlevania Judgment is Clockwork.

Game textEdit

  • Trailer Short Description: The most agile man in Vallachia.
  • From Judgment Manual
    Danasty is a rogue from Valachia with a strong sense of justice. He helped Trevor defeat Dracula and then worked to rebuild the town. He sees Trevor as an older brother.
  • From Press Release
    Grant Danasty used to live as a noble thief (much like Robin Hood) all the while aspiring to become a vampire hunter like Trevor. As the most agile man in Transylvania, Grant Danasty joined forces with Trevor to defeat Dracula. Since overpowering Dracula, Grant Danasty has become a true champion of good, devoting his time to restoring the town to the days before Dracula’s rule.
  • Opening
    Light of foot and lighter of spirit, Grant Danasty was nevertheless Wallachia's staunchest defender. He once partnered with a vampire hunter of House Belmont to face down the mighty Dracula. Upon Dracula's defeat, Grant devoted himself to rebuilding the towns and villages the vampire's demons had razed. One day, a year later, Grant awoke from a strange vertigo to find himself in an unfamiliar place...
  • Ending
    Thus the rift in time was mended, and all were returned to their respective eras. Grant once again threw himself body and soul into the revival of the ruined towns. The scars Dracula had left on his land rand so deep, Grant would devote his entire life to healing them. In time, Grant would no longer be known as a vampire hunter, but instead be remembered as the hero who rebuilt Wallachia.
