Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Dracula appears a boss in Classic Mode and Adventure Mode: World of Light in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. His appearance in said game is based off the one from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Dracula's Castle also appears as a playable stage in-game.
During the battle, he can transform into his form from Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, a demonic bat-like creature with long horns. The characters that fight Dracula at the end of their Classic Mode are Luigi, Pac-Man, Simon Belmont, and Richter Belmont. Sephiroth also faces him in his Classic Mode route, but not as the final boss.

- Although Dracula himself never appeared in any Mario games until Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (not counting Captain N), King Koopa had a disguise based on Dracula, Count Koopula, in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode of the same name and tried to turn Princess Toadstool into a tomato sauce vampire.
- On a similar note, the Mario & Luigi: Dream Team main antagonist, Antasma, shared several traits to Dracula, including transforming into a bat, having vampiric traits, and to a lesser extent speaking in a Slavic accent (although it should be noted that Dracula in the Castlevania series, with the exception of Portrait of Ruin and to a lesser extent Captain N, does not have him speaking with a Slavic accent). In the Russian version of the game, his name is even a pun on Dracula. The character Count Bleck from Super Paper Mario also shared some traits to Dracula, namely in terms of motives for acting as the main antagonist being the result of losing his beloved (which was taken from the 1992 Francis Coppola adaptation).
- Dracula being the final boss of Luigi's classic mode was most likely a reference to the Luigi's Mansion subseries, which dealt with a similar premise to Dracula's home series Castlevania.
