Alucard runs are longer and more complex, including numerous tricks and glitches. This page includes information on the character, his special moves and some of the advanced tricks that can be performed.

Character Information and Mechanics

  • MP gained each level: 4 or 5
  • Base stats: see Prologue#Bonuses
  • Landing from great heights(around 128px) causes Alucard to get locked out of moving for 10 frames if he walked off a ledge or 33 if he jumped or untransformed. This stun can be canceled by jumping or tapping shield.
