- Aside from the Vampire Killer, Dracula is known to be very vulnerable against weapons, magical spells and powers with holy/radiant property (including natural attacks/weapons), especially those that are as powerful as the Vampire Killer such as the Master Sword and above (radiant is composed of the element of fire and positive energy).
- Upon possessing someone in order to take form should he ever resort to it as seen in Castlevania: Curse of Darkness in addition to being attacked while his resurrection remains incomplete as seen in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Dracula will lose his invulnerability while in one of those states. (Weakness)
- As Soma Cruz, Dracula can wield the Vampire Killer and is simply called "whip" in the inventory only as seen in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow if the Succubus glitch is used. Because this is a glitch, however, it is non-canon.
