  • Keep your inventory at the beginning of the game (Symphony of the Night)

    In order to keep your default inventory at the beginning of the game, like the Alucard Sword and Alucard Shield, reach the room where you meet Death for the first time, then walk back out or back dash out of the room. If done correctly, Death won't be there when you re-enter the room. Note: this glitch works differently from the original PS1 version.

  • The Stairs' Shaft

    If you're looking for a useful tip to get through the game easily, consider the following glitch. This glitch allows you to pass through walls, floors, across pits, and more. You can basically bypass almost everything once you fall through the floor. Useful to get through some tough areas full of annoying monsters, to obtain some items not possible early in the game and/or to obtain others easily. In order to accomplish this glitch successfully, you must first head to any staircase. Climb up to the middle of the stairs and stop. Then, walk back down to the lowest step.

    From here, press down, and then quickly press backwards (pressing both simultaneously). If done properly, the character will have a foot on the stairs and another foot in or underneath or behind the floor you're trying to breach (that the stairs are connected to). When you see this, release back on the d-pad, and the character will fall completely through the floor to a glitched area underneath the stage.

    If the glitch doesn't work, make sure of two things: that your character isn't facing the staircase, and that you're pressing down and backwards simultaneously. Also keep in mind that depending on where you are, the glitch may not work properly. You may get stuck and have to reset the game in certain areas. Maria is also preferable to Richter because she can jump higher and hence get out of these glitched areas more easily.

Just past them is a platform that moves like an inverted pengelium going left and right. Just opposite of it is a spiked ball. Get on the platform and jump over the spiked ball landing on the ground against the wall. Break the lower part of the wall to find a bomb. Hit the bomb to ingite it and the wall will come falling down.

  • Unlock Symphony of the Night

    In Stage 2, while the minotaur is chasing Richter, immediately fall into the first hole in the ground. You will not die, but instead be taken into the sewers. Play the level out normally and defeat the boss. Afterwards, you will be taken to Stage 3' (this is different from the normal Stage 3!).

    In Stage 3', whenever the path branches, taken the upper route. Make sure you obtain the "axe" subweapon sometime during the stage. Eventually, you will meet a skeletal snake that is attached to a wall. Nearby is a vine-like cage; use the axe to cut it. It now serves as a platform for Richter to jump to the upper ledges. Continue along the upper ledges until you see a breakable tombstone. Inside is the item that unlocks Symphony of the Night. Return to the main menu to play it.

  • How to Save Iris

    She's found in Alternate Stage 4.

    Simply keep going through the stage (do not go down the waterfall on the raft yet). Go all the way across this part of the stage until you notice a blue frog. Don't kill it. Instead jump over/avoid it and let it stay close. It will follow to the end of this particular part of the stage to a row of frog statues. It will jump on the only pillar that doesn't have a frong statue on it and lower a plateform in the middle of this section of the stage. Go down the stairs and follow the path until you get to the end where there is a gate. Iris is awaiting there.

    Richter's whip can be extended secretly!

    If you press forward two times just after pressing the attack button, Richter's whip will extend slightly, making it easier to hit some enemies. You'll know it works when the whip turns white during the animation. It can also be done while jumping and crouching, you just have to hold the crouch button while pressing forward two times.

  • Saving Annette

    Annette is located in Stage 7. You first need to rescue Terra and Iris to be able to do this.

    In the first room of the clock tower section, break the red pillar statue and push the switch behind it. Next, climb to the top where there's a small cog wheel and locked door in the upper right corner. Hit the cog wheel until the door opens and enter that. In this next area, kill the hawk to obtain the key. Hold on to it for now.

    Next, in the last room of the clock tower section, you'll see a locked door. DO NOT USE THE KEY here (as its a fake room) and instead proceed upward until you see a crystal pillar blocking another switch. Like before, break the pillar to push the switch. Now go back down to where the locked door is. If done correctly, a new area should have opened up below with another locked door below the first one. Open the new/lowest locked door and after a cutscene, you'll save Annette.

    You can come back here again in later playthroughs to find a room with several candles that drop moneybags and the Stopwatch subweapon if you're using Richter.

  • Invincible Alucard

    You will need the Walk Armor, Sword Card, and Soul of Wolf. Go to the room where you can see a save point and do the "Sword Brothers". Then, immediately go to the save point and press Up + R2 so that you can save the game as a Wolf. Immediately save the game as the Sword Familiar starts spinning. Once you see the "Data Saved" message, hold Select + Start to reset the game, then load your saved file. If done correctly, your map will be glitched and the rooms you have previously visited will have disappeared. However, your completion will remain as it is. You must cover the rooms you have done before. The Walk Armor's defense will increase as your completion also increases. The more rooms to cover, the stronger the Walk Armor's defense will become. Repeat this until the Walk Armor becomes very strong. At this point the highest damage that Alucard will ever receive is 1 (except spikes), and he will be immune to all types of sickness except for stone. Alucard will not be pushed away, even if he is being attacked by enemies. Also, if Alucard gets hit while he is in Bat or Wolf form, he will remain in that form as if nothing hit him.

  • Max Money With Librarian and Sword Familiar (PS Version)

    Required Items/skills

    - Sword Familiar
    - Gem of any type (Diamond is best choice)
    - Enough mana to cast Sword Brothers spell (50 MP)

    Sword Brothers spell: Enable the Sword Card familiar and press the Directional Pad Down, Down-Forward, Forward, Up-Forward, Up (hold 2 seconds), Down + Attack

    Make your way to the Master Librarian's room. Stand near him, but not so you enter his menu. Cast the Sword Brothers spell. As the sword starts to spin, walk towards the Librarian and enter his menu. Sell off all but one of any single gem. Press Start to enter into Alucard's menu while still in the Librarian's menu. (Casting of the Sword Brothers spell allowed you so)

    Have Alucard equip the last gem of the chosen type. Return to the Librarian's menu and sell him the last gem. Since the gem was removed and you sold something you didn't
    have for sale, the game drops the count of that gem to 255. Sell off the extra gems to max out your money. I suggest using the Diamond to get your money the fastest.

  • Richter Warping Glitch

    To activate this glitch, you have to be playing as Richter, and must be in the Inverted Castle Keep. Once you reach the Inverted Castle, advance to the left, until you reach the broken staircase. Using Richter's uppercut move (down, up + jump), jump up through the broken staircase. At the top, where the statues are, there will be a door to the left. Advance through the door. There will be two elevator platforms in the room. When you reach the top, take the door to the right. While going through the hallway, there will be risen platforms on the floor, and coffins to fight through. When you reach the last risen platform on the floor, stand to the right of it, and push up. This will warp you back to the normal castle.

  • Hidden items under Librarian's chair

    Once you acquire the gravity boots, go to the area beneath the Librarian's room. Stand under the hole in the ceiling and use the gravity boots to knock his chair up into the air. The first time you do this, you'll get a Life Max Up pot. After that you have a random chance to get one of three other items: Dracula's Tunic, Axelord Armor, and a Rind of Arcana. The order in which you get them is random, as is the chance of getting any item at all. To greatly improve your chances, use the boots to repeatedly knock his chair up without touching the ground or making him hit the ceiling.

  • Secret Area

    You must be playing as Richter for this to work. Begin a new game. Once you gain control of Richter (which is when he walks through the front gate) turn around and do a ground slide (hold down and hit X). If you were fast enough, you should have slid behind the gate before it completely closed. Go left and you will be outside the castle. go further and the drawbridge will close, but ou will still be able to go further. Keep heading left. You will walk on an extremely large path on the groud until you reach the forest. You will see Richter walking through it like Alucard in the beggining of the game. You then see Richter jump over the closing drawbridge and say "Holy Cross". You are now behind the gate again. NOTE: If you go to the secret area, you will not be able to get in the castle.

Enemy/Boss Tips

  • Beat Granfaloon Quick!

    When you get to Granfaloon's room, first use bat form to fly to the west side of the room. Once there, stand on the lower ledge. When the boss is at it's highest height, equip the Shield Rod and the Skull Shield. Use the Shield Combo attack by pressing both Square and Circle at the same. The ray that appears will kill the boss with one shot. Enjoy!

  • Defeating Galamoth Easily

    Galamoth is one of the biggest and strongest bosses in the game. However, he can be surprisingly easy to take down. When you're facing him, simply use the Form of Mist to fly through him, and then land on the small ledge in back of his head. If you keep hitting him, he'll never get the opportunity at attack. To make things even easier, you can equip the Beryl Circlet, which absorbs Galamoth's electrical attacks and turns it into HP.
