Cheat Codes and RewardsCheats
When you start a new game, using one of the following cheat codes as your file name will give you the corresponding effect or reward. The game has an audio cue telling you your cheat code has been entered correctly and accepted.
Note: cheat codes are case sensitive and only one can be active per save file; renaming your save file will not have an effect. The one exception to this rule is the “NIGHTMARE” cheat, which permanently unlocks the ability to choose between all difficulties for any save file.

All JoJo's Bizarre Adventure referencesEaster Eggs
Bloodstained has numerous references to the popular anime JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, most likely due to the emphasis on vampires as antagonists in the show’s early seasons.
The Hyperventilator mask accessory might be a reference to the masks the main characters used in the second story arc, Battle Tendency, to train their Hamon powers, which relies on controlled breathing to channel energy.
The Fangshi Scarf, while not a clear reference in the English version, is known as the Sendo Scarf in the Japanese version. Sendo is another term used for Hamon.
By holding “up” on the D-Pad, you will make Miriam adopt a pose. The poses she uses are from JoJo.
There is also an accessory called the Stone Mask. This mask is a reference to the Stone Mask from JoJo, which transforms people into vampires.
Miriam can also summon creatures called Familiars that hover behind her. While this alone isn’t enough for Familiars to be a reference to Stands, one Familiar almost certainly is. Called Silver Knight, it can be found near the Crusader armor piece, suggesting it’s a reference to the Stand called Silver Chariot from the story arc of the story, Stardust Crusaders. (Note: while not identical to Silver Knight, Silver Chariot is a knight dressed in silver armor.)
Bloodstained also has a secret boss called Orlok Dracule, abbreviated OD. OD has an ability called Standstill, which allows him to stop time for a brief duration. Defeating him lets you use Standstill, as well. The way OD uses Standstill and attacks Miriam while she’s frozen mirrors that of how Dio uses Za Warudo (“The World”) to stop time in Stardust Crusaders. Meanwhile, OD written backwards, DO, would be pronounced Dio, so the use of his abbreviated name might also be a Dio reference.
OD Alucard referencesEaster Eggs
In addition to being a reference to Dio from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, the secret boss OD is also a reference to Alucard from the Castlevania series, sharing the same English and Japanese voice actors and the same middle name (Fahrenheit), as well as saying the line “Death is too kind for you!” which is a nod to Alucard’s line “Demon, death is too good for you!” in Symphony of the Night.
OD Nosferatu referenceEaster Eggs
The name of the secret boss, Orlok Dracule, is a reference to not only Dracula, but also Count Orlok from the film Nosferatu. While Nosferatu was based on Dracula, they did not have permission to adapt it and therefore changed the vampire’s name to help avoid legal trouble.
Nose Demon referenceEaster Eggs
The Nose Glasses accessory is a reference to the Nose Demon or N Demon from the Castlevania series.
The KunekuneEaster Eggs
The Kunekune secret enemy on the train in Bridge of Evil, and the way it jumps out at you when you draw close to it, is based on a Japanese urban legend about a “modern yokai” that can only be seen from a distance and will attack you if you get too close. The urban legend of the Kunekune was created through stories on the Internet, similar to Slender Man.
Shovel KnightEaster Eggs
The Shovel Armor enemy is a reference to Shovel Knight.
Iga Boss FightEaster Eggs
The DLC Iga’s Back Pack includes a boss fight with Koji Igarashi, the game’s producer. His design and combat style are a reference to Castlevania’s Dracula, including an attack where he throws a wine glass in a manner similar to Dracula. Defeating him lets you use that move, as well.
Castlevania character referencesEaster Eggs
The names Lindsay has on her list to avenge are references to Castlevania characters.
8-Bit NightmareEaster Eggs
The 8-bit Nightmare area is a reference both the original Castlevania games and this game’s prequel, Bloodstained Curse of the Moon, and its boss is a reference to the form Dracula takes in first Castlevania.
The CoachmanEaster Eggs
The Coachman is a reference to the Boatman from Castlevania 2.
Lightsaber & Decoded DescriptionEaster Eggs
The Encrypted Orchid resembles a lightsaber from Star Wars. Its description is unreadable, but actually can be deciphered, being converted from hexadecimal to letters and then decoded using the Vigenere Cipher, to finally read “a light saber with immense power.”
Piano RecitalEaster Eggs
If you sit at the piano in the Garden of Silence area, Miriam will play the game’s main theme on the piano. With Carabosse there, she will sing. The video below includes both the Japanese and English versions.
Unlockable Characters and ModesUnlockables
There are several character transformations and modes you can unlock.
- Lili – You need the Bunny Morphosis shard from Lili.
- Shovel Knight – You need the EX Shovel Armor from Shovel Armor.
- Speed Run mode – You must beat the game.
- Sound mode – You must beat the game with the good ending.
- Hard mode – Beat the game on normal difficulty.
- Nightmare mode – Beat the game on hard difficulty.
Note: Hard and Nightmare can be unlocked from the start by using the cheat code NIGHTMARE.
- Ultimate mode – Beat the game after killing the other heroes when you meet them instead of recruiting them.
- Boss Rush mode – Complete at least two different runs (recruiting all heroes for one run, killing all heroes for a second run, etc.)
If you get 100% of the shards, you can go to Johanne’s room to get Gebel’s Glasses, which grant you unlimited MP while equipped.
If you complete all of Susie’s cooking quests, you will get the Recycle hat, which grants you infinite ammo while equipped.
How to Get All EndingsHints
There are three different endings you can get.
To get the worst ending, you must defeat Gebel without using the Zangetsuto. Use the Reflector Ray Shard to reach him.
To get the bad ending, you must get the Zangetsuto and defeat Gebel.
To get the good ending, you must avoid killing Gebel and use the Zangetsuto on the moon once it turns red, then go to the Garden of Silence and slash the moon there to open a portal, which will take you to the areas you must progress through for this best ending.
