Castlevania Is at Its Best Without the Belmonts

The Belmont Family serves as the primary protagonists of Castlevania, with each game focusing on a different generation of Belmonts in their war against Dracula.

However, despite being the central characters in the saga, the best games in the franchise consistently are the ones where the Belmonts are either sidelined or exist only as unlockable characters.

The story is too old to be commented.

I have seen a lot of horrible journalism linked on this site in the past, but I have never felt motivated enough to comment until now.

The Belmont’s are in Castlevania 3, Rondo of Blood, and Super Castlevania. There’s a playable Belmont in Symphony of the Night. If you don’t think that these games are some of the best in the series, you are objectively wrong.

Please don’t waste your time on this article.

Correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t Richter Belmont in SotN and Julius Belmont in AoS?

I don't understand what you are getting at. I'm simply stating they are the best overall CV games. Doesn't matter if they have Belmonts or not. Julius is the coolest one though.

Best without Belmonts? Wrong! Super Castlevania IV on the SNES was amazing for its time. It was a game that was released during the launch of the SNES and it was a huge step forward from the NES Castlevania . Besides the great graphics and music/sound, the gameplay mechanics evolved to have eight way direction whip, hold the button and jiggle and spin the whip in all directions, and crouching walk. Also, the Mode 7 effect was used well. You had to have played it during the early 90s to really appreciate it
