Castlevania Game and Nazy Simbols

Akumajō Special: Boku Dracula-kun (literally "Demon Castle Special: I'm Kid Dracula") is the original Japanese Famicom version of the Game Boy Game Kid Dracula. It is a parody of the Castlevania series as a whole.
.
After months playing this game, I just found a nazi simbol in the first boss... is hard to see if you play in the TV. But using a emulator, the nazi symbol shows very clear
.
Everybody confuses the first boss (A Ku Klux Klan member) with a Ghost..
.
A Nintendo Game with a Nazi Symbol

Though that symbol does not originally belong to Nazis, it seems the 'Nazi' angle was what they were going for. I saw this in a gaming magazine years ago, though I can't remember which one.

This monster looks like a KKK dude. Maybe it's not a coincidence.

More seriously, the Nazi symbol was originally taken from a ancient symbol (the same but inversed), which means "peace" and "protection" used in houses to protect them (as far as I can remember - thanks to my Latin studies). So maybe it is this peace/protection symbol.

EDIT: Got Ninja'd. Thanks for the precision. ;)

That's not the inverted swastika (which is the Nazi symbol). I thought everyone knew the history of it by now. But of course it looks weird considering the ghost looks like a KKK member.

I don't think that's a coincidence. If the guy didn't look exactly like a Klansman... then maybe I'd think it was, but... this character is just too suspicious. Sometimes people (like Disney) sneak stuff like this into innocent entertainment. The question is, "why?"

Perhaps just an odd sense of humor? Perhaps just seeing what they can get away with? Perhaps seeing if anyone will notice?
No one really knows.

I think someone did notice and maybe that's why the game was never imported over here  :P

The Swastika is very old symbol and found all over the world. For some it means good luck while for others it represents peace, protection, etc. In Norse mythology it symbolizes Thor's hammer. Other meanings behind it also include how it is depicted. For instance; If the Swastika faces left it symbolizes masculinity. When facing right, femininity. I've also heard it is also a representation of the ancient waterways of Atlantis. Regardless of it's true origins this symbol is extremely old and is not the correct representative of true evil that was popularized through the Nazi party. As for the KKK in the game, I feel it's a nice little nod for the fight against racism.

They could've always replaced it with a smiley or something. That's how it has been with Castlevania over the years, anyways. With titties and religious symbols and things like that.

I wouldn't find it offensive even if it was intended to be a KKK nazi. You're slaying it, not befriending it and using it to kill Jews and black people. That's like getting offended as a Christian that there are demons in Castlevania. Never mind that you're playing as a holy warrior and slaying the demons. Stupid.
