Konami have supported the series beyond making new entries and spinoffs. The first was the Wai Wai World on the Famicom which had a world in each game based on the Castlevania series as well as have a Belmont playable. The Wai Wai World games later inspired a kart racing spinoff called Konami Krazy Racers which has Dracula playable. In DreamMix TV: World Fighters, Simon Belmont is a playable fighter. New International Track & Field featured cameos from various Castlevania characters including Simon Belmont. Most recently, Simon and Ritcher Belmont became fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Inspired titles


  • Due to the way Zelda II, Super Metroid, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night were designed, this created the popular "Metroidvania or Castleroid" genre.
