Mist Form is the ability to turn into mist which is possessed by Alucard and Dracula.


Alucard can gain the ability in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night by finding the Form of Mist relic. Initially, he can maintain this form for only a short while, and can be used to pass through metal grates and avoid enemy attacks. Finding the Power of Mist relic allows him to maintain the form as long as his MP can last and maneuver while in this form. The Gas Cloud relic causes the form to turn yellow and to damage enemies. In Castlevania Judgment, Alucard's evade move involves him turning to mist briefly and reappearing further back or on the other side of his opponent. In Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, Mist Form is Alucard's personal action, and he can use it to evade enemy attacks.

Dracula generally does not utilize his mist form in fight sequences he has appeared in, though he is described and shown to be able to take the form in the intro sequence of Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles. He also utilized the form to escape from Christopher Belmont at the end of Castlevania: The Adventure. Hitting Dracula anywhere other than the head during the first phase of the boss fight against him in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has him using the ability as well, possibly implying that his previously-established immunity to attacks anywhere other than his head was the result of him using this ability.

Other appearances

Castlevania (animated series)

In the animated series, Chō, one of Dracula's generals, uses mist form. In this form, she is impervious to melee attacks, although she is ultimately killed when Sypha Belnades freezes her with ice magic while in this state and she shatters.

Lenore was also shown using mist form to pass through dungeon bars.
