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.

He is a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

History[edit]

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. He appears alongside fellow Konami characters Solid Snake and Simon Belmont, Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog and Bayonetta, Capcom's Mega Man, Ryu, and Ken Masters, 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 classified as an Echo Fighter of Simon, sharing similar attacks while varying in appearance, animations, and voice. Richter's special attacks are Axe, an ax that is a powerful projectile; Holy Water, a multi-hitting projectile, with a blue flame that does magical damage instead of an orange burning one; 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!"
