That's three Dracula's busted

Vampire's Kiss, Circle of the Moon, and Harmony of Dissonance count for three full, literal Draculas. Someone else will have to make the ruling on Aria of Sorrow, wherein Dracula overcomes his internal Dracula in a symbolic struggle all can relate to. Camilla in Circle is also a bonus Dracula.

Melty Blood's just crawling with Draculas, but most relevant is Vlov, the resident final boss of Type Lumina. A morose and sickly Soma Cruz type, with the associated Dracula stature and abilities to ensure his place in the annals of bonus Draculas. He even ships himself to Japan inside a shipping container! A classic Dracula move.

So I beat Alucard and we had a very manly handshake. Does that count? Also, a big bat that turned into a bunch of little bats.

Alucard has all the same letters as Dracula, and looks and fights like Dracula so... *I* would count it as a full point for that, but on the other hand, "befriending" isn't the same as "exploding"

I have defeated Dracula in Castlevania: Dracula X. I'm not sure why this game is in the Advance Collection and I doubt I'll ever play it again, but it counts!

I don't think Alucard counts as a full point... I'm willing to be swayed but "his name in an anagram" isn't quite convincing.

That brings us up to 13 points by my count.

I just defeated Genichiro on the top of Ashina castle in Sekiro. He turns into a dracula right after the fights. Is that close enough for a half point?

I believe Alucard has been counted as a Bonus Dracula in the past.

Castlevania Alucard is a half vampire and specifically a half Dracula so it just seems appropriate to count him as a Bonus Dracula.

Shouldn't that make him a half point, then? So you'd need to beat two Alucards (or I guess just one Alucard twice) to get full credit?

On that note, if you're playing as Alucard and kill yourself, does that count?

Took down Graham in Aria of Sorrow, who is not Dracula but does fight like Dracula and insists on being called Dracula. If anything, he looks Jerry Dandriech from Fright Night.

Thats at least a half point right there
 

Dracula

(He/His)
I have it on some authority that Magus of Chrono Trigger is worth a bonus Dracula. If so, I have defeated him!

I don't have any fully-fledged Draculas beaten, but I did beat Cool Katana Vampire (?) in Final Fantasy Tactics: WotL if that counts as a bonus Dracula

What's Shenmue?
I've also run through the three GBA 'vanias, so that's another three Draculas for the pile: one non-canon, one imitation and one wannabe. Graham might be stretching it but he's at least a Bonus Dracula.

I figure between Graham and Chaos you got a full Dracula in there somewhere.

I wanted to see how many Draculas one can beat on a flight home from Denver.

The answer is one, you can beat one Dracula. The one in the first Castlevania, specifically.

I also played a few stages of Bloodlines, turns out it is super hard.

I'm playing BATS right now. Where I am a Dracula, or at least a half Dracula sometimes. I appear to be defeating COBRA (here called Scorpion). What if anything do I get for beating Cobra Comman, I mean Supreme Scorpion?

Presumably Gebe, but I believe the ruling is that the whole game is Vania enough that beating it counts as a full Dracula
