"Divine Bloodline"[1] (乾坤の血族 Kenkon no Ketsuzoku, literally "Blood Relations of Heaven and Earth") is a song introduced in the 1993 NEC PC Engine game Castlevania: Rondo of Blood as the music for the the stage 1 as well as the stage 1 from the 1995 Nintendo SNES game Castlevania: Dracula X. The song is composed by Akiropito.

There is five major variations:

  • Overture, which comes with a faster tempo, is the music for the intro animation before stage 0 in the game. It is marked as Richter Belmont's theme in the soundtrack.
  • Ending theme of Castlevania: Dracula X
  • "The Outcasts"[2] (異形の血族 Igyō no Ketsuzoku, literally "Monstrous Blood Relations"), which was introduced in the 1997 Sony PlayStation game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night as the music for the battle against Richter Belmont. In the Dracula X Chronicles version, the song also plays during the battle against Maria Renard. This version is arranged by Michiru Yamane and is also known as "Strange Bloodlines" or "Blood Relations".
  • "Sign of Blood Relationship" (血脈の印 Ketsumyaku no Shirushi), which was introduced in the 1999 Nintendo 64 game Castlevania as the intro music of the game.
  • "Bloodlines Bequeathed"[3] (-継承- 乾坤の血族 Keisyō Kenkon no Ketsuzoku, literally "The Succession: Blood Relations of Heaven and Earth"), which was introduced in the 2006 Nintendo DS game Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin as the music for the battle against Richter Belmont.
