    An easy way to earn this achievement is to collect as many hearts as possible (99) by using the secret passage at the top of the stairs - watch the vid, but stop there - and using the holy water power-up weapon. You need to stand at one of the candle sticks in Dracula's throne room to collect the heart that you will need. Use the power-up consecutivly until he is dead.

    But the easiest way is Drachen77's:

    Just open the attic, go back and forth between the attic and regular floor and collect hearts up to 99. Get the Holy water and just hit Y. Two shots of Holy Rain will drop his first form and then two shots again on the demon form and,,,presto!

    Rhhe82Okay, now I got it with another character. Either I somehow got hit after all the first time, or then it's a matter of naming the character - the failed attempt was with a character that had a random name, the successful attempt was with a character named Alucard.

    PetetheGod99I used the same strategy, but i changed it. With the 1st form when he teleports & throws the 3 fireballs, then moved away to dodge the larger ones. i got as close as possible & used the whip to block them & hit Dracula at the same time. With the 2nd form, i spammed the cross special and it popped.

    Really easy achievement, just collect as many hearts as you can and use the Water power whenever Dracula is vulnerable.

    I got it on my first try with this method.

    At the beginning of the game, wait until Dracula has the white beam (I guess he is teleporting) and get close to him, use the holy water (Y) he should die and transform. Grab the other holy water to the left (hit the candle) and when he is almost done transforming use it again, or use the one that looks like rain. He should die if not just finish him off. A few hits should do it, if your close enough he will just keep jumping, just move and keep hitting. Took me two tries.

    Use the attic door trick when you first reach the castle -- smacking the bricks for the switch, then hitting again so the stairs go down -- and max out your hearts. Easiest way to do this is to keep doing the super jump (down, then quickly up+jump) on the attic steps to hit the big-heart-carrying candelabra in the next room up (all steps) then dropping back down and repeating.

    Once you have 85 or so, just walk left. Make sure you've grabbed the cross sub-weapon.

    During the cutscene, keep in mind you can hit Y to bypass the dialog -- great if you want to keep trying until you unlock the achievement. I wish I would've figured that out long ago.

    When you fight Dracula, every time he materializes, jump and chuck a cross at his head (up+strike), then immediately fire one without jumping. Do this from about 1/3 of a screen away. The first cross will damage him; the second will take out his fireballs.

    If instead Dracula shoots the big smoke balls at you, hit Y to do the invincible cross attack for big, safe damage. It should take you no time/damage to beat this form.

    The second form is a little tougher. I tend to jump and spam crosses at demon Drac. Utilize the down+jump to slide under him if he takes to the air. If he spits fire, either do a super jump or use your Y-button uber-cross attack to avoid. Once he's dead, strike a pose for the picture and enjoy the achievement sound!
