18Dracula — Castlevania
With no shortage of YouTube videos and messaging boards to sift through, Dracula isn’t nearly as hard to defeat today as he once was. When the game was first released, players had to figure out how to take down this Castlevania boss all on their own. That meant playing
through the game all over again to try and implement a new tactic, only to have it fail and have to start all the way back at the beginning.
Since the player takes four times more damage than Dracula, going into the battle with a surplus of hearts is a must. Using Holy Water can also help stop Dracula’s projectiles, making them easier to jump over. Holy Water can also stall Dracula in his final form, making the second stage of this boss fight actually easier than the first.
