Why yes, yes they are! I wondered if anyone would get them, but with how those songs get stuck in my head as I play the related games I couldn't NOT do it. Plus, they make pretty cool achievement names on their own anyway..
26 Feb 9:23 2015
I certainly think so! And yeah, I know what you mean. Those lyrics have a way of sticking with you. x) Awesome set of achievements! Looking forward to attempting 'em all.

''Dark Metamorphosis'' seems hard, did everything else in NES as a child, except the creative ones of course, like ''Mana Efficiency'', I even beat hard mode as Trevor alone, favourite NES game by far. Excited about doing it again for all this,
2 May 13:18 2015
It's actually not as hard as you'd think! Try fighting Death with Alucard a few times and he might just become your favorite character to fight him with. I'm glad you're excited though! I had a great time working on this set.
28 Jul 13:37 2015
The invincibility potion achievement didn't trigger for me. Also, the in-emulator bug report feature didn't work for me.
28 Jul 16:19 2015
I got that achievement with a reset. Thanks.
3 Aug 21:20 2015
FYI you should use the (U) version of the rom for all achievements to work properly. I'm considering making a set sometime for Akumajo Dracula Densetsu since, say, Mario 2 and Mario Advance have separate sets.
18 May 21:51 2016
the achivement with the invincibility potion don t pop , i take it two times
27 Oct 1:24 2016
"n the name of my Mother... (2) (12)Deliver the final blow to Dracula as his son."------How can I earn?
5 Feb 19:39 2017
Heart of fire no working
22 Oct 20:54 2017
Yeah, as mentioned above, 'Heart of Fire' seems to be bugged, as I was not awarded it when I beat all three bosses at the end, and I do not want to do that again.
19 Jan 4:46 2018
It'd be great to see this list get ported over to the Japanese version of the game. :D
31 May 19:25 2018
That's a great game and really hard too! I got the Brando references. It was really amazing and funny mastering this set. Good job popoki!
23 Jul 15:29 2018
Is Iron Blue Intention supposed to be unlocked when Sypha gets the ice spell?
27 Oct 16:06 2018
Slowly working on getting these done. The Sypha and Grant ones will likely be hardest since I typically pick Alucard
18 Nov 3:10 2018
heart of fire, pluky pirate and thats y they call me nasty i did not receive at all in hardcore mode :(
10 Feb 13:21 2019
not working? tried all roms
10 Feb 13:26 2019
yeah, I found that it has not been working with the rom I used to beat the list with.... not sure if it's an update needed for the emulator or if something else is up....
16 Feb 23:55 2019
same :(
17 Nov 6:11 2019
Using name "HELPxxxx" which is gives you more lives will make achievements not work. Same story with passwords to start any level with extra lives.
