Trivia

Released in May 1997.

There is a secret title named "Darkstalkers - Jedah's Damnation" (hosted in a gfx rom but not used in the game). Some US and European copies were hacked to use the 'Jedah's Damnation' title.

Lilith was originally slightly different, in back-story, to the one we know now. She was what is occasionally referred to as a white-wing, with her angelic heritage hidden from view most of the time. This idea was dropped, due to, supposedly, too many angel characters in games. Briefly, She was redesigned as a hermaphrodite, but that too was dropped, most likely due to the fact it would have courted controversy, and instead she was made into part of Morrigan.

Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Vampire Savior : Capcom Game Soundtrack - VICL-60098, 60099) on 21/08/1997.

Updates

The US version is slightly different, it has the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.

Name changes between JAPAN and US/WORLD version 
  • Bulleta - Baby Bonnie Hood
  • Lei Lei - Hsein Ko
  • Gallon - Jon Talbain
  • Zabel Zarock - Lord Raptor
  • Aulbath - Rikuo

Tips and tricks

Hidden Warriors

To reach your character's hidden warrior, you must finish the stage without losing any energy bats, and without time-outs. The KO move MUST be an EX Finish. Dark Force or ES Finishes may be acceptable, but an EX Finish is preferred. If you meet this condition, you'll get a 'Here comes a new challenger' prompt as you enter the fourth stage. Each character has their own boss character fights (i.e. Demitri's final boss is Morrigan, Jedah's final boss is Demitri, etc.), and after you finish the first 6 stages, you must defeat your character's boss character in Stage 7 to finish the game. If your character's final boss is Jedah, there will be a special intro scene.

Play as Original Jon Talbain

(Gallon in the Japanese version) At the character select screen, highlight Jon Talbain (Gallon) and press Start and all three punch buttons at the same time.

Shoul Mode

On the character select screen, go to the [?] box, press Start 5 times, then push any punch or kick button.

Alternate Shoul Mode

On the character select screen, go to the character whom you would like to use first stage, press Start 3 times, after go to the [?] box, press Start 5 times, then push any punch or kick button.

Win Poses

By holding any attack button at the end of a fight, you may choose most of each character's win poses. However, there are a few that can't be seen with this trick, such as Felicia's perfect win pose.

Tricks

Even though the Start button is mostly used as a taunt button, there are a few characters that can use it for some rather silly moves such as Sasquatch & Felicia.

If you leap at the enemy's head without attacking while using Felicia, you'll sit on their heads as long as neither player moves at all. An extra taunt? :)
