This 2-second jingle plays whenever the character being played loses a life (by falling through a bottomless pit, being impaled by spikes, not keeping up with the self-scrolling screen, killed by enemies, or simply having the time run out). It is usually heard in the classic-style (some might call it "linear") Castlevania games where players beat the game by finishing a stage and defeating the boss at the end, mostly "pre-Symphony of the Night". In fact, it is not really present in any of the Metroidvania nor the 3-D games (except for Judgment and possibly Harmony of Dissonance). Though it only last for a few seconds, it is pretty catchy and hard to forget (in my opinion).

NOTE: Not all the versions are included. Whenever a find a good number of tracks, I'll make an updated video that includes all the version in this video and the newer/missing ones.
