This thread is dedicated to the Lords of Shadow canon. The protagonist Gabriel Belmont who saves the world as a Holy Knight, and then becomes the Prince of Darkness as Dracula. This thread will break down feats of a human Belmont/Vampire Belmont, and then Dracula Belmont. Belmont is infected as a Vampire for a short period, but does not actually become Dracula till absorbing the demonic power of the Forgotten. So we will cover the gear and abilities of Human/Vampire and then Dracula.

Here is the link to the Trevor Belmont/Alucard Respect Thread.

There is more minor abilities, and power ups I am not mentioning. Thinks like the Black Wings, Turning into Rats, ect. I am not adding those due to the fact they are not really supported by "cinematic" scenes. Even the Black Wings felt very un needed game mechanics due to the Black Mist in cinematic scenes. So with that said, I hope this respect thread helps you respect the latest installment of the Castlevania series character. A epic hero turn tragic villain.

@sirfizzwhizz: Very nice thread. You could add the reaction to Satan dodging his cross a mere inch from his face and the re entry from space that sent him crashing into the street for durability.

@sirfizzwhizz: Wait, so the Dracula that Simon Belmont is fighting against in the classic games is actually his own ancestor??? Badass.

@sirfizzwhizz: Wait, so the Dracula that Simon Belmont is fighting against in the classic games is actually his own ancestor??? Badass.

Not quite.

Old Canon, the more traditional games and Symphony of the night was just this Vampire Lord, Dracula, who could only be put down by someone wielding Vampire Killer, typically various Belmonts, every few decades to 100 years.

This newer canon starts with the main hero, Gabriel Belmont, saving the earth, killing the older major evils (Shadow Lords, Forgotten One, and Satan) but in the process becomes a Vampire and demon empowered. He then becomes Dracula, and his ancestors, few other Belmonts, try to kill him in turn. His son, Trevor Belmont dies from Dracula, and turns into Alucard.

So that is in a nutshell the newer canon. Way more complicated than the older one.

@lubub55: For the Belmonty story, he has 3 games

Castlevania Lords of Shadow, Castlevania Mirror of Fate, and Castlevania 2 - The Finale

@sirfizzwhizz In Mirror of Fate - Dracula is capable of Summons and projecting fire from his suit as a ranged attack. He can do many other things in that game as well.

@sirfizzwhizz: well the summon I'm thinking of is a worm/serpent like creature with an upper torso and humanoid head at the front. It can dig through the deep ground with ease and travels at a high rate of speed.

This is really impressive and awesome RT. But sadly Dracula didn't get respect from CV he deserves.
