Maria Transparent

Maria Mode is a gameplay mode featured in several Castlevania games, in which the player can play as Maria Renard.


Game Specific InformationEdit

Castlevania: Rondo of BloodEdit

In Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, Maria becomes playable as soon as the player releases her from her cell. Many players consider that playing as Maria makes the game much easier than playing as Richter. She has her own set of sub-weapons, each with their own item crashes. She is slightly smaller than Richter, which allows her to dodge certain attacks much more easily than the vampire hunter. Her main weapon is summoning doves to attack her enemies. She can throw two of them at a time. She can also slide and roll in order to move faster and dodge attacks. Her special ability, called Guardian Knuckle (performed by pressing ↓ ↑ ↘ + II when facing right), deals quite a large amount of damage if used correctly. Finally, she can double jump, which is extremely useful for reaching certain platforms and dodge enemies and their attacks. However, she has far less health than Richter. Maria has her own ending, a cutesy and slightly shorter version of Richter's ending.

Maria: Uh-huh.
(Iris sees Maria's wounded arm)
Iris: Oh, my. You're injured.
Maria: Yeah. But I'm just fine. Uh-oh, you gotta run! See you!
Iris: Wait! My father is a doctor.
(Iris tears off her dress and treats Maria's wounds)
Iris: That should do it.
Maria: Wow! Thank you so much, Miss!

Iris: Oh, no. It's I who should be thanking you. Thank you. It's very dangerous here. Be careful.

Saving Annette
(Maria calls Annette)

Maria: Annette!
Annette: Oh, Maria!
(The two meets each other)
Annette: Are you all right, Maria?
Maria: Yeah. I'm just fine because I have the same vampire hunter's blood flowing in me as that man, Richter. I think he's fighting someplace else right now.
Annette: Richter's coming.
Maria: Oh, my. Looks like you hoped it wouldn't be me who came to save you.
Annette: Oh, no. That's not what I meant. Thank you very much, Maria. (smiles) Come on, let's go home.
Maria: Not yet! There's still something I have to do. You go back without me. I'm gonna beat that vampire to a bloody pulp! See you!
Annette: Maria!
(Maria takes her leave)

Annette: For heaven's sake, she can be as reckless as Richter!

Maria Ending
(Dracula is on his knees)

Dracula: Once again, the blood of Belmont has defeated me... Perhaps this, too, is part of my fate.
Maria: It's your fault. For being so mean to everyone!
(The cat growls)
Dracula: It is not by my own power that I am resurrected. It is a greed of humanity which calls me back. And thus, by might, I rule. Might becomes the one and only justice in this world!
Maria: I don't understand what that means! No matter how complicated you make it, a bad thing is still bad thing!
Dracula: So long as greedy humans exist, I shall be reborn. That's all you need to remember. (grins) You proved amusing to me. We shall meet again, blood of Belmont!
(Dracula laughs at Maria and fades away)
Maria: What's he think is so funny?!
(The castle starts to collapse)
Maria: Oh, it's crumbling! Everyone, run for it, quickly!

(Maria escapes from the castle with her familiars)

(A nun senses someone while praying and turns)

Maria: Are you okay? You're saved now!
(The nun approaches Maria)
???: Oh, God in heaven! You've answered my prayers!
Maria: Hey, thank Him later. Come on, we've got to go!
???: You are truly an angel. May I ask you your name?
Maria: It's Maria Renard. What's yours?
???: Maria, the Holy Mother... My name is Tera. Sister Tera.
Maria: Holy Mother...? Do you need help getting out of here?
Tera: I'd be unworthy of such attention. Please, let me find my own way out, and see your mission through.
Maria: But...
Tera: Oh, and please accept this. It's nothing compared to your power, I'm sure, but if it helps...then there's been a purpose to my time here.
(Maria obtains Tera's Necklace)
Maria: All right, I understand. Now run for it before things get too dangerous. See you!

Tera: A thousand bleesings, oh holy Maria...

Iris: Wait a minute!
Maria: ?!
Iris: Let me see your arm.
Maria: Okay.
Iris: I thought so. You're injured.
Maria: Not really.
Iris: Oh, believe me. If we don't treat that right now, you're looking at infection, and then putrification.
Maria: What?! W-W-What do we do?
Iris: (smiles) I'm joking. Here, just let me bind that up. My father's a doctor.
(Iris aids Maria)
Iris: There you go. All better.
Maria: Phew. Thank you, Miss Iris.
Iris: No problem. Here, let me give you this too.
(Maria obtains Iris's Charm)
Maria: What is it?
Iris: Just a good luck charm. To help keep you safe.
