The Raven (also known as Crow) is a hostile bird under the influence of the night that has developed a taste for human flesh. It usually perches somewhere and waits for the hero to come near. When this happens, it either swoops at the hero or flies out of range; it may then make more than one attempt to attack or fly away for good. Sometimes the Raven will disappear after impacting the hero. Ravens and Crows are indistinguishable in Castlevania games and differences in names are often just the result of different translation decisions. They come in several colors (black, blue and red), all which essentially act the same. They tended to be a major pain in the early games, but since the removal of instant-death pits and difficult platforming, they aren't much of a hassle anymore.

While ravens themselves never appear as bosses, there is a raven-demon called Malphas who sometimes does act as a boss. He takes the form of a raven-like man and uses flocks of ravens as weapons.

Soma Cruz is able to send crows flying toward his enemies after gaining dominance over a Crow's soul, in an attack similar to the way that Maria uses her Doves.

All Bird-Type Innocent Devils in Castlevania: Curse of Darkness start their existence as a Crow.

AppearancesEdit

Castlevania: The AdventureEdit

The Raven (called an Eagle in the Game Boy Nintendo Player's Guide and a Death Bird in Japan) flies straight from one end of the screen to the other, but then doubles back, swoops low, and lunges quickly toward Christopher.

Castlevania: Symphony of the NightEdit

Like the rest of its Castlevania birds kin, this enemy acts as an obstacle during extensive platforming. Blue Ravens are found on the topmost platforms of the Royal Chapel's bell towers.

Castlevania: Aria of SorrowEdit

The Red Crow is an enemy in Aria of Sorrow. According to its in-game description, it's "a vicious red crow dyed red by the splattered blood of wounded men". The Red Crow is generally a weak enemy and is first found in the Floating Garden. It doesn't really have an attack per se, it just flies in one spot until Soma moves, then it follows him around.

The Blue Crow's soul is a Bullet Soul. When equipped, it grants Soma the Crow Attack ability, which allows him to attack by flying crows at enemies. The Red Crow's soul is an Enchanted Soul. When equipped, it grants Soma the Craft ability, which increases INT by 4.

Castlevania: Curse of DarknessEdit

All Bird-Type Innocent Devils in Curse of Darkness start their existence as a Crow. This basic innocent devil can fly and attack enemies quickly and then fly out of the range of a possible counterattack. It also has the ability to glide over long distances while Hector holds onto its legs, transporting him to before unreachable areas.

A crow is frequently seen communicating mentally with Hector in the comic.

Castlevania: Portrait of RuinEdit

The Blue Crow appears in the Forest of Doom. When coming too close, it dashes at the heroes and then flies around to hit them once more.
