Not to be confused with Grave Digger.

The Grave Keeper is a master of unarmed combat. He can usually be found near graveyards, and when approached, he will stand up and confront the player. Most of the times he will counterattack with a fast and long side-kick, or by jumping and performing a downward kick. Upon defeat, he will die in a shower of blood. Alucard can regain some health at this moment if Soul Steal (or one of its variants) is active.


Castlevania: Rondo of BloodEdit

The Grave Keeper was introduced in the series in Rondo of Blood. He appears in the Caves (Stage 3') and, as his name implies, he can be found guarding the graveyard. Two of them can be encountered near the room where Tera is being held hostage (bridge with the dragon skeleton). Upon defeat, the player can continue right and reach a dead end. Breaking the lower walls of this place will reveal a Holy Water/Turtle sub-weapon, a $400 money bag, and a health restoring item.

Castlevania: Symphony of the NightEdit

The Grave Keeper can be found alone in a room which has a fountain in the Colosseum, guarding a Green Tea (Sake in the Japanese version). If Soul Steal is active, Alucard can regain some health by drawing blood from him.

Castlevania: Aria of SorrowEdit

While the Grave Keeper doesn't appear in Aria of Sorrow, his soul does. It can be obtained very early in the game, inside a Soul-Keeper located in the middle of the lower path of the Mermen room in the Castle Corridor. Acquiring this soul grants Soma the ability to perform back dashes.
