Richter Belmont is a vampire hunter from the Castlevania series of games, and the descendant of Simon Belmont, who debuted as the main protagonist of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. Richter faces the resurrected Dracula in the year 1792, storming Castlevania after the town of Aljiba was burned by Dracula's forces and innocent maidens were kidnapped, including Richter's girlfriend. He is set to be a playable fighter in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

SmashWiki article: Richter (SSBU)

Richter makes his Super Smash Bros. debut in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a third-party character, alongside fellow Konami characters Solid Snake and Simon Belmont, Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog and Bayonetta, Capcom's Mega Man and Ryu, Bandai Namco's Pac-Man, and Square Enix's Cloud Strife. He and Simon were confirmed to be in the game via a Nintendo Direct that took place on August 8th, 2018. Richter is voiced in English by David Vincent, reprising his role from previous Castlevania titles, including Portrait of Ruin, Harmony of Despair, and The Dracula X Chronicles.[1]

Richter is classifed as an Echo Fighter, based on Simon. His abilities are similar to Simon's, but he will have his own unique animations and voice, among other minimal things. Richter's special attacks are Axe, an axe that is a powerful projectile; Holy Water, a magical, multi-hitting projectile dealing flame damage, with a blue flame instead of orange; Cross, a projectile with boomerang-esque properties; and Uppercut, a powerful uppercut that functions as his recovery move.

In Simon's debut trailer, he saves his ancestor Simon from Dracula's attack, and shouts a variant of his famous line from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, "Begone! You don't belong in this world, monster!"
