"Acting as the secret guy for Konami games, you may find him in the skies or in the caves. But in Wai Wai World, he was assigned to the main cast, and became a star along with his partner, Konami Lady."
— Description from Pixel Puzzle Collection

Konami Man (コナミマン?) is a hidden item in the Castlevania series. He's worth 5,000 points.


Konami Man is the main protagonist from the crossover game Konami Wai Wai World, where he's able to rescue Simon Belmont and several other Konami mascot characters, and obtain their help in return. His female counterpart is Konami Lady.

He appears as a special bonus collectible in many Castlevania games and makes frequent cameos in several titles from other Konami franchises, such as Ganbare Goemon, Parodius, and the rest of the Wai Wai series.

Game specific information

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Konami Man appears as a random icon for a saved game on the memory card manager.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

In the Cursed Clock Tower there's a room that has a platform with a Tanjelly on it and surrounded with spikes, except for a small section near the top, accessible by flying in bat form. By crouching in that spot for a moment, Konami Man will suddenly enter the screen flying toward that spot for the player to collect.

Can be sold at Hammer's shop for 2,500G.

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

Obtained after beating Hard Mode (best ending) with a Level Cap of 1. Gives a permanent STR +50 boost (no need to actually use the item).

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

In Minera Prison Island there's a vertical room containing a hidden Konami Man. The room is located on the right side of the map, just one room left of the Save Point. The item is hidden inside the right ledge, just above the entrance to the Save Point; to break it, use Magnes on the metal ring nearby and hit the ledge with a long enough weapon while suspended in midair.

In this game, it's merely a collectible item and has no in-game use.

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

In Come Sweet Hour of Death (Chapter 6), right before fighting Dracula, at the beginning of the stairs jump to the ledge above the door. Now climb up until you can't go higher. Once at the highest point press ↑ once and Konami Man will appear flying across the screen.

In this game, it's merely a collectible item and has no in-game use.

  • The description stating this item is worth 5,000 points in some games may be a throwback to some older Konami titles where mascots from their other franchises appeared as hidden items; specifically from the Famicom game The Goonies, where they were worth precisely that amount.
