Favorite "Richter mode" character?

Heya all! As per the "this thread-type belongs in this sub-forum" rules, and seeing there is no other similar thread (unless I'm as blind as Mr. Magoo), I decided to make one. I recently went on a portable CV rampage lately, and have been spacing my "Richter mode" play-throughs apart so I don't have a crystal-clear memory of each game's map when I do its "Richter mode".

This sparked a question in me, about which one was my favorite. Being that CVIII had such a large impact on me, I'm almost tempted to say DoS's Julius mode, especially since it doesn't force you to grind for souls or doodle in some silly pattern and most importantly offers a terrific throwback to having a Belnades and Alucard (except for poor Grant and/or Hammer. Damn you Konami!!!). Then again, Richter had some kick-ass special attacks to a boy in 6th grade (when I first played it), and blue just happens to be my favorite color. And yet, I like Albus' mode, since OoE on hard is probably the most challenging Metroidvania.

So, how 'bout it? Which Richter-mode best tickles your fancy?

Dawn of Sorrow's three character Julius Mode was by far the most fun for me.

Definitely DoS Julius Mode.  I think it was a huge mistake to cut Hammer from it but even without him it is an awesome mode.

DOS Julius mode will forever be the best hands down.

I liked the SotN Richter playable mode. It was the first and most memorable. The only thing I didn't like about it was that Richter's Vampirekiller was too short. It looked awesome and the animations were slick, but it was just too short. PoR had one advantage over that as the whip was longer and SotN Richter should've had that at the beginning. Ah well, that's what fan-made projects are for  :)

I went with DoS Julius mode but almost went with AoS Julius mode. I think it was the new final bosses that made me in DoS Julius mode that made me pick it.

I really like Joachim Mode.  I do wish his move-set had been a little more diverse though.

Aw shit I knew there had to be some I missed. Being that I never played CoD I can see why I didn't know about Trevor and God knows when the last time I played LoI was.

EDIT: Ok I added them to the poll. I don't really have any special quote with them, since I never played CoD and I can't remember much about Joachim other than his last name was Armstair or something like that and he had the spinning swords.

It has, and always will be, about Trevor and that AWESOME coat of his.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

I had to go with Trevor because I didn't enjoy Curse of Darkness much otherwise.

...Why can't I vote for Hugh Baldwin? :rollseyes:

Ain't that the mother-fuckin' truth. They take the time to animate him, give him a slightly unique sprite, give him a move-list, and DON'T make him a playable alternate character. Instead, Nathan gets some pretty generic stat swaps based on a meta.

I was SO happy Serio's Castlevania fighter made Hugh playable. I was about damn time.

Gameplay-wise I'm actually more inclined to say Albus mode. Between the rapid-firing gun and "you can't hit me!", the flaming tornado kick was the one that sealed the deal.
It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.

Joachim Armster is a splendid character in his own right and I like him the most. Albus gets second place though.
Immortality or inexistence... the choice is yours.
