One-Up Icon

A One-Up (or 1UP) is a rare and hidden item found in classic Castlevania games. It will grant the player an extra life.

Extra lives can also be gained by reaching a certain amount of score points. Picking up money bags or coins, acquiring certain valuable items, killing enemies, killing many enemies with just one use of a sub-weapon (triggering the score multiplier), or being awarded bonus points at the end of a level for the amount of time remaining on the timer, or by the amount of HP or hearts left, are ways to increase a player's score.

Satisfying some requirements particular to certain games (as in the case of Dracula X, where the requirement is to finish a level without taking damage) will also award the player with an extra life.

While playing as Maria in Rondo of Blood, the player can pick up a similar item, although having the form of Richter. It is called "Richter Doll" in the instruction booklet.
