In 1844, Cornell, or in 1852, Reinhardt Schneider and Carrie Fernandez, agree to a contract with Satan not to spend over 30,000 gold. If they spend more than this, Renon will appear before them and reveal the fine print in his contract, revealing his true identity, and coming to enforce the contract with them to make their souls his. At which point he transforms into his true demonic form to fight the characters.
Satan is also occasionally mentioned in items in other games of the series, such as Satan's Ring, which is said Satan himself once wore (note this only appears in English localizations; the 'Dark Lord' mentioned is generally believed to actually be Dracula himself).
- Sons of Satan is a musical theme that plays in Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge during the final battle against Dracula.
- Some of the titles of music themes from the other translated games include the name "Satan" (although it's sometimes translated as 'Devil' as well) (see Konami Game Music: Classic Castlevania).
- The gamebook The Legend of Satanic Castle: The Vampire Hunters contains a reference to Satan in its title.
- The word "Castlevania" was created by Emil Heidkamp, Konami of America's senior vice president at the time, who believed the game's Japanese name was translated as "Dracula's Satanic Castle", and therefore he chose to change it out of potential religious sensibilities.
