Super Achievements

So you think you're a Castlevania master? This is the place for you. Think that your accomplishments are unbeatable? Well, the people below don't agree. They say that they're better. If I were you, I wouldn't take that. So send in those super achievements, and let's see if your brashness is the real deal or just a bunch of meaningless talk. You can always lie--but only a chump would pull an ego-driven move like that!

[Castlevania] [Super Castlevania IV] [Castlevania: Dracula X] [Castlevania: Symphony of the Night] [Castlevania: Circle of the Moon] [Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance] [Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow] [Castlevania: Lament of Innocence] [Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow] [Castlevania: Curse of Darkness] [Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin] [Miscellaneous]

Japanese (Famicom)

Special Achievement:
The owner and C.E.O. of the Zappsoft Empire boasts to have cleared the Famicom classic in 13 minutes and 47 seconds, in speedrun-type fashion. This was done without the assistance of a Game Genie, which the master is sure to note, but it was accomplished within the game's "Easy" mode.
 
Master's Trash-talk:
"I think it deserves some spotlight! So with that tell me what you think is this cool or what? Or am I just another amateur?"

American (for both)

Special Achievement:
Anyone who holds this title dear knows of its "second quest," the stages now packed with more enemies than before--them stronger and more aggressive. It only gets more difficult with successive play-throughs, which didn't for one minute intimidate Omegaace, who completed several such quests until reaching "Stage 99" via the start of the Outer Wall/Alchemy Lab level. The stage count will not increase past this point, though the challenge persisting. Most interesting is that Omegaace accomplished this not for the NES version but for two separate ports--Classic NES: Castlevania, for the GBA, and the digital download as played on the Nintendo Wii. (Note: The image seen right is from the GBA version.)

Special Achievement:
Young Gaibon is quite the master at Super Castlevania IV, and he's kept records of how many times he's beaten the game. As of April 23, 2002, Gaibon has conquered the game exactly 2994 times--sometimes only using one hand! How the master accomplished this: "A lot of hard work." Dedication? Or lunacy? You be the judge.
 
Master's Trash-talk:
(Unedited) "I DARE YOU TO TRY AND BEAT ME..........I'M ALREADY AHEAD OF YOU BY THOUSANDS!!!!!! BEAT THE GAME WITH ONE HAND AND UNDER 1 HOUR AND 11 MINS. EVERY TIME!!!!!!!!! TRY AND BEAT ME, BUT I TELL YOU THIS........YOU CAN TRY ALL YOU WANT, BUT YOU WILL FAIL EVERY TIME! I am the master of Castlevania IV."

Special Achievement:
Belmont Vlad says: "Well, now--let's get into the Gaibon thing... He says that he's the master of Super Castlevania IV? Well, let me tell you something: My record in Super Castlevania IV is under forty-seven minutes, including the credits. How's that? And the best part of this is that I can prove it with a home video so you guys can see that I don't use any 'Game Shark' stuff."
 
Master's Trash-talk:
(Unedited) "Oh! there's something else... I'm a 2 handed player...If that make me less than Gaibon, sorry :( but I'm not a clown doing a show. I'm a normal player who takes CV very seriously. By the way, my record in CV1 is almost 17 minutes who's gonna be the one that will close my F@#$% mouth? LOL :)"

Special Achievement:
The award-winning Anonimus91136 makes the first-ever pure "High Score" triumph (as opposed to the "High Experience" propensity seen in this section) in the SNES' own Castlevania: Dracula X, this by earning the game's highest possible score--999,900 points. While an achievement in its own right, it also earns the master all-time honors as Gold Winner for Castlevania: Dracula X in the related High Scores section.
 
Master's Trash-talk:
The master offers no words of discouragement and instead makes known his intent: "I should also ask for the Dracula X to be placed under the Super Achievements, as I think I'm the first person to achieve the game's maximum score." Though, it might mean that yo' momma is fat. I'm not sure.

American

Special Achievement:
The master Vlad Cyodar Belmont, whose alias is "Metafaniel," succeeded in clearing the game without equipping Alucard with any weapons and armor (save for sporadic use of the Tyrfing Sword and the Cursed Sword, both of which are largely useless) and relied mainly on his fists. Also, no spells were ever used; nothing was ever purchased from the Master Librarian; the game was never saved; energy was thus never restored via a save room; and special moves, like the double jump, were only used when absolutely necessary. As part of the completion process, the complete encyclopedia was filled with every enemy, weakness, drop point, etc.
 
Master's Trash-talk:
(Unedited) "Now the question is: Is anyone as mad as I am to try to accomplish this???"

Special Achievement:
The master Dreamchaser is another in the line of those who have showcased supreme patience in clearing a series' title. That is, Dreamchaser managed to max-out Circle of the Moon's level-up system by reaching the all-elusive Level 99, which in this case entails in excess of 29,000,000 experience points. This is particularly impressive when you consider how tedious and compressed its level-up system is compared to Symphony of the Night's and the latter two GBA titles'. The master supplies photo evidence, courtesy of the GBA-compatible Nintendo DS. In addition to "Vampire Killer," Dreamchaser has also maxed out Nathan's stats in two other, more difficult modes--Magician and Fighter.

Special Achievement:
The achievement here is speed: The master known as Belmont X completed Circle of the Moon's Fighter Mode in two hours and thirty-five minutes, in the process defeating every boss (though, save rooms were utilized during the run). There are two stats of note: The master during this time reached Level 42 and attained 66% map completion.

Special Achievement:
The master known as Sven achieved a goal that required supreme patience: In the GBA classic Castlevania Aria of Sorrow, without using any type of cheating device, Sven managed to max out Soma Cruz's stats by reaching Level 99 benchmark, the highest level the game will allow. When considering the low increment of experience assigned once Soma reaches levels of 40 and up, this is quite the feat. The master even supplies photo evidence to back up this achievement:
 
Master's Trash-talk:
The master is obviously humble: "Well... It took me long enough sorry...but I finally did it :)"

Special Achievement:
The master Cyberdragon managed another experience-related feat, as seen in the image to the right. As said by the master: "I have managed to accumulate 5.1 million experience in the short span of ten hours. Also of note, in that same file, I've also filled out the Beastiary, acquired at least one of every weapon/armor/accessory, at least one of every soul, and at least one of every useable item (potions, etc.). Honestly though... it didn't take that long... if people want to beat it, I only have one thing to say."
 
Master's Trash-talk:
(Unedited) From the rather humble master: "Honestly though... it didn't take that long... if people want to beat it, I only have one thing to say. I had 8 Demon Mails before I even started soul/item hunting."

Special Achievement:
The master Anonimus91136 has the need for speed. As the sender tells us: "The thing is that I managed to get every single weapon, accessory, armor piece, soul power, and item (except for the knife and casual clothes, because I sold them by accident), and I filled out the bestiary with the enemies' respective dropped items. Also, for this trouble, the map has been 100% completed. And all of this was done in a mere fifteen hours." Seen to the right are sample shots of enemies slain, souls collected, items gathered, etc.

Special Achievement:
Vlad Cyodar Belmont cleared Lament of Innocence in a similar way: Leon was controlled at only his most basic; no weapons, armor or special moves were used; and nothing was purchased from Rinaldo's cottage. However, this time, save rooms were utilized due to the game's size. "What's 'special' about this, then?" you ask. Well, the master accomplished this feat in the Crazy Mode! Also, as part of the mission file, the master cleared the Boss Rush mode without using any restoration items.

Special Achievement:
Dreamchaser strikes again--this time for Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. The master has within a short time after the game's release attained the maxed-out status of Level 99, the highest level Soma Cruz can reach. In addition to level achievement, Dreamchaser has also managed to collect one of each enemy soul for a combined total of 115 powers. Photo evidence of the bottom-screen inventory display has been supplied.

Special Achievement:
Nai255 not only cleared and unlocked Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow's "Julius Mode"--the master was able to achieve the pinnacle known as Level 99, the highest the mode will allow. Considering that (a) there is no inventory screen with which to measure the three heroes' progress and (b) the requirements for level-ups are inexplicable, this is quite the show of patience and perseverance. Note that the three heroes share all current status.

Special Achievement:

Manuel's achievements are similar in that they entail elements of your common speed-run. In the former's case, it's all about reaching and defeating bosses at what would be considered inadequate levels. In the words of the master: "In 'Julius Mode,' I fought Dario at a paltry Level 1, Gergoth at Level 9 (Dario's defeat earns you enough experience to reach Level 9), Zephyr at Level 12 and Aguni at Level 15. I've also had a successful speed-run in 'Julius Mode,' where I reached the last save point in fifty-eight minutes."

Special Achievement:

Curse of Darkness' spate of customization makes it a difficult game to "complete," as it were, when you consider how painstaking the process of forging can be. Master Belmont X, ever the trooper, cleared Curse of Darkness at Level 99 with one of each fully evolved Innocent Devil; entailed, also, is 100% map completion (including towers Evermore and Eternity) plus all of the top-tier weapons (Laser Blade, Death Scythe, Chauve-Souris, Force Gloves, Gatling Gun, Maximillian Armor and Cross Helm).

Belmont X also cleared Boss Rush Mode using both characters: Twenty-two minutes and fifty-two seconds with Hector, and seventeen minutes and seven seconds with Trevor.

Special Achievement:
If there's a new title to conquer in terms of item-collecting, level-gaining and ultimately Dracula-slaying, it's a good bet that Dreamchaser is the first one there. The perennial achiever max-levels the Johnathan-Charlotte combo and in addition clears 1000% of the map, collects all 100% of the items, completes all of Eric Lecarde's quests, and earns and masters all of the skills for both characters.

Rikardo Granda
Private

Special Achievement:

Here's one of the more interesting, if not momentous, achievements. Die-hard fan Rikardo Granda spent parts of 14 years gathering and displaying images related to the Castlevania series; his is in fact the largest single-focused collection ever procured. This was done to serve two purposes: To gain entry into the Guinness Book of World Records and through such achievement earn the attention of Konami of Japan, where the persistent youth hopes to one day work. Rikardo was successful in this endeavor and earned a Guiness World Record certificate, a testament to the man's dedication to the Castlevania saga, and seems in line to gain audience with a certain crazy-haired Konami personality. Will this lead to employment at the big company? Will series fans one day play a Castlevania title or a unique Konami IP in part created by Mr. Granda? It seems only a matter of time. For now, scroll down a bit to check out the actual certificate.
