  • "i'm not exactly what you call a sugary-cereal kind of guy". MatPat, I may have to end my subscription to your three Theorist channels. Why, I doubt you have any interest in visiting Pixar Studios' fabled "cereal bar", yet you claim to be a fan of their movies! Sure you've ruined my childhood/ young adulthood plenty of times, but you may have finally jumped right over the line! Good day, sir!

  • If you've ever heard the story of Mercy Brown of early American History (Story told in Episode one of the LORE series) it adds an interesting spin to this whole thing. While I don't think it explicitly contradicts Mat's theory - it's just interesting knowledge on what inspired Stoker's story as well as what the population knew of vampire legends at that time. While Stoker created something new and brought it to the fore, the idea of the vampire existed long before and the book was inspired by other things other than just Vlad. Just interesting stuff =)

  • 10:47 oh yeah i forgot about Giorno Giovanna, in Jojo's Bizzare adventures (i think it was Part 5: Golden wind), Dio possessed Jonathan Joestar's body and basically rapped everything in sight before killing it, Giorno was the son of a survived maiden Giorno is a Dhampir but to such a lesser extent that he barely has any vampiric powers. he can't learn Homon due to his Vampiric lineage but he did gain a Powerful stand potential from the Joestar line funny enough, Creators of Both Jojo and Castlevania are Fans of Eachother's works. Jojo was also the Standard maker for the Anime scene. even dragonball copied elements from jojo. and dragon ball was seen as a trailblazer

  • 10:35 Think of Alucard from Castlevania, He's a Dhampir, Vampire hunting Communes also welcomed Half-breeds into their ranks since they would be Insiders to what Vampires did, especially if there was enough vampires with enough effective planning to create a Secret society from it. lol illuminati confirmed. also their vampiric powers could be used for good. the chruch would also commission them from time to time to hunt down witches. same for sanctioned witches by the Chruch. the belnades clan would be a fictional equivalent to a church sponsored witch. often used to bust other witches the Belmont Family easily became one such society of vampire hunters. especially after exile from symphony of the night by the time Aria of sorrow rolls around the Japanese and US Militaries also got involved in fighting vampires (the wiki even calls it the Dracula Castle Wars. taking place in 1999), considering that a niece of Dracula started WW1 in the castlevania universe (bloodlines is set in 1917, the war at it's worst). mankind did the rest to secure the second world war like in our timeline, so of course to keep vampires from effecting man's politics they would treat them as an external threat

  • Okay the DraculA part isn't true for other names (at least in Romania), I can be my father's son and not be named "dad's name"A otherwise stuff like AndreiA would happen. Aside from that Conte is not pronounced "cont" (cont=internet account), it's contE woth the E from bErry for example. Țepeş is also not pronounced Tepeş, but I can give you a pass there. Fun fact the DRACU and ȚEP parts are now words for "devil" and "spike" respectively, not sure of their origin though, gotta do my research there. Doar ca să nu vă întrebați dacă eu sunt chiar român scriu mesajul ăsta.
