Castlevania - 01

Castlevania and Contra are two of Konami's biggest side-scrolling platform franchises. They reference each other from time to time, and are sometimes bundled together side by side.


In Contra: Hard Corps, in stage 3 before destroying the first door, climb the wall and you will reach a hidden section where you will meet a mysterious character. He will ask if you want to do money in the Arena. Respond "YES" and you will enter a room where you'll be tested with a series of miniboss fights.

The first boss you will fight is Simondo Belmont, a parody of both Simon Belmont and Masato Shimon. The theme that will play in the background is SIMON 1994RD, a remix of Vampire Killer.

Arthroverta a boss from Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, resembles Kimkoh.
