One has to wonder if Netflix!Alucard did get into a bar fight at one point in his life for him to quip that his duel with Trevor isn't a bar fight when the latter tried kicking him in the ding-dong.
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.

As far as I care this is canon now.
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.

Was it? Let's not forget that in canon or IGA's timeline, Trevor got his scar in the face during the events of Dracula's Curse while in the Netflix series he already have one since the first episode.

And in the original CVIII art he never had a scar at all.

Looking at the title of the final boss theme for CV Chronicles, one gets the feeling Simon wasn't exactly the most eloquent of trashtalkers.

Dante and Nero are out there making trash talk Shakespeare while the best Simon could come up with is the Castlevania equivalent of "YOU BIG STUPID DOO-DOO HEAD!"

Dante and Nero also came along a lot later then CV68000. So what's acceptable as trash talk now was not acceptable back then.

It's not his hair that's the problem, it's his face Xp

For all their power walking, why don't the Belmonts have beefier legs?  Why can't they run faster, jump higher and farther, etc.?
...or maybe they really are beefy and I should be wondering what they'd be like if they didn't power walk?!

The later "Metroidvania" heroes may have had more special attacks and magical trick, but the earlier heroes like Simon and Trevor were better at traversing the castle.  They didn't need to go find new techniques and alternate passages, they'd just kick down the door and keep going.
