Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin Talk Dialogue

Menu Screen Talk Dialogue

1. Charlotte: Objects outlined in blue, when stepped on, will trigger some sort of reaction.

Jonathan: I see.

(You can only see this conversation at the start of the game, in the bridge)

2. Charlotte: You can attack enemies with physical or magical attacks. When the enemy takes damage and flashes blue, it means the attack had little effect.

Jonathan: That’s good to know. So matching the right attack to the right enemy is the key to success.

3. Charlotte: An abnormal status penalty doesn’t seem to affect your partner.

Jonathan: Oh. So by switching players, you can let the unharmed one take up the slack.

4. Charlotte: Fighting as a pair is reassuring, but some attacks just can’t be avoided. If that ever happens, you need to be brave enough to fight alone.
Jonathan: Okay got it.

5. Jonathan: Hey, your magic is weaker than I thought, isn’t it?

Charlotte: Well, excuse me! If I have enough time to recite an aria, my magic will be stronger. As the gauge builds up higher and higher, the power will increase.

6. Charlotte: If you call your partner and touch the lower screen, did you know that they’ll move there?

Jonathan: Really? That’s handy.

Charlotte: Since it’s hard to touch while controlling things, that move’s aimed at advanced players.

7. Charlotte: You can unpetrify your partner by attacking them.

Jonathan: I see.

Charlotte: You can’t be on alert while petrified, so watch out.

8. Charlotte: When your partner takes damage, the MP level goes down.

Jonathan: You need MP for strong attacks, so that can be a big problem.

Charlotte: If the MP level reaches zero, you’ll have to fight alone. You have to be careful of this.

9. Charlotte: It seems the trick to deploying a command is to hold the last direction and press the button.

Jonathan: I see. I’ll have to try that.

10. Jonathan: Hit up + X in co-op to unleash an unstoppable attack.

Charlotte: This really eats up your MP, so wait for the best time to use it.

11. Charlotte: Hey Jonathan. Don’t you think the sub-weapons are a little underwhelming?

Jonathan: Yeah, they’re not as powerful as I thought they’d be. On the other hand… It does feel like they get more powerful the more we use them.

Charlotte: Maybe if we continue to use them, we’ll be able to unlock their full potential…

Jonathan: Yeah, I’m sure of it.

12. Charlotte: If something is troubling you, it is important that we talk.

Jonathan: I can handle things myself. I prefer it that way. Let’s just both do our best.

13. Charlotte: I wonder if Vincent’s all right.

Jonathan: He’s weak, but he is a priest. He should be okay for a while.

Charlotte: You’re right. He still has his sanity, so he’s safe for now.

This talk conversation occurs once Vincent gets bitten and disappears once he gets cured.

Boss Talk Dialogue

When running away from Behemoth
Charlotte: Huh?! Something’s after us!

Jonathan: This doesn’t look good! Let’s run for now!

Charlotte: It’s head is totally immune to attacks!

Jonathan: So we aim for the body, right?

Jonathan: We had to run before, but here we can fight back!

Charlotte: But how?

Charlotte: With this monster, keep hitting the pot to make it appear. According to the book, it’s weak spot is it’s face.

Jonathan: Hmm, in that case, we better work together on this one. Also, it looks like we’ll need to move the pot.

Jonathan: … So beautiful…

Charlotte: Jonathan! What are you looking at? Don’t lose your head!

Jonathan: Ewwwww, gross! I don’t wanna touch that!

Charlotte: What are you saying?! If you don’t beat them, you’ll end up joining them.

Jonathan: Damn vampire! Coming here alone!

Charlotte: Getting too cocky can be fatal.

Charlotte: Aim for the head!

Jonathan: There’s two! Which one do we attack?

Charlotte: Go for the one that gets damaged!

Jonathan: If we let him do what he wants, he’ll definitely revive Dracula. We’ve got to stop him right here!

Charlotte: Gotcha. Still, he’s a tough one. We have to be extra careful.

Stella and Loretta Battle
Charlotte: If we could break the vampire’s curse, we might be able to save them.

Jonathan: Your magic’s up to it. I’ll keep them occupied.

The Creature
Jonathan: A lighting attack doesn’t seem to work on this one.

Charlotte: Relax. This magical genius can use more spells than just lightning attacks.

Mummy Man
Jonathan: Check out bandage man here! How can I seriously fight a guy who’s already hurt?

Charlotte: Don’t get all wrapped up trying to go after the mummy!

Charlotte: It’s so fast!

Jonathan: Watch out for it’s dash attack!

Jonathan: Petrifying eyes?! This is gonna be a pain!

Charlotte: Don’t look directly at her! Turn around! That will protect you!

Jonathan: I promised Eric. Now time to carry it out.

Charlotte: Right. Together, we can do this.

Battle with Dracula and Death
Charlotte: I never expected Dracula and death to fight together.

Jonathan: But this is the only chance we’ll get to defeat Dracula!

Charlotte: You’re right. If we combine our powers, I’m sure we can win.

Final battle with Dracula
Charlotte: What amazing power! Is this the true power of Dracula?

Jonathan: No problem. His back’s against the wall. let’s finish him off! Now!

Charlotte: Right!
