Death, also sometimes referred to in Japan as God of Death (Shinigami), is present in nearly all Castlevania games. Death is often a boss fought toward the end of the game. Most sources, such as game manuals, cite that he is Dracula's second in command. Sometimes he has played an important role to the story line, such as Castlevania: Lament of Innocence. In most of his appearances, Death looks no different than the cultural personification of The Grim Reaper. He wears a hooded cloak and holds a scythe. Like Dracula, he can change into a second form upon being defeated in the game.

How about that... The Grim Reaper AKA "Death" made it to a fighting game. The majority of his Castlevania designs are a bit more intricate than the original "Death" design, and I think they went a little too far with Death's redesign. His Castlevania Judgment design isn't bad I guess, but his original classic appearance is still the best.

P.S. It's bad luck to visit Death's profile, don't you know. Just kidding. Or maybe I'm not. Just in case, you should probably visit a happier TFG character profile as a palette cleanser.
