Alternate Modes are special gameplay modes the player can unlock once they have completed the game in Normal Mode. These modes have been available in most games since the first titles in one way or another (like being able to play the game again in Hard Mode right after completing it once). On newer titles, the player is usually given the option to start a new mode and play with new characters (with the exception of Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, where the player instead gets all DSS cards from the beginning or starts with enhanced stats).

Sometimes there are other requirements, too. For example, in Portrait of Ruin, to unlock Richter, the player must first defeat the Whip's Memory and beat the game, and to unlock Old Axe Armor Mode, they must first defeat 1,000 Old Axe Armors and beat the game.
