Wraith Skin:
In mission eleven, put the egg on the pedestal. Then, successfully complete the Rising Blood challenge.

Completion bonus:
Once you have completed the game and wait for the credits to roll, you will be prompted to save your game on a new game option. Do so and you can start the game with all previously unlocked cheats, power-ups, and items. Additionally, the hard difficulty setting will be unlocked.

Hint: Defeating enemies:
When a Boss or other strong enemy grabs you, keep pressing L1 (Shoot) to take away great amounts of life away from them.
Ray Rose.

When you have the gattling gun upgrade from Dracula's Tower, press L1 when you have your ammunition meter up to shoot the upgrade. Hold R1 + X + Square and press a direction to dodge and shoot. It is faster than standing and shooting the gun. It also makes defeating enemies faster.

Hint: Defeating Dracula:
When fighting Dracula at the end of the game, wait to attack him until you turn into a werewolf. Otherwise, he will be invincible. After awhile of using Tojo Blades, you will hear a scream and you will become a werewolf. Later, you will temporarily be Van Helsing. Also, your background will be bluish when you are a werewolf and normal when you are not. Note: Dracula remains normal until attacked -- you will be okay until you turn werewolf.

Hint: Defeating Vampires:
When you get to the part where you have to fight the three Vampires, take out the one on the left first. When the center Vampire is going to attack, she will make a screeching type of sound. When she does that, get ready to dodge her attack. When she uses her lightning attack, hide behind the pillar. When you take out the Vampire on the left, the center Vampire will transform. The transformed Vampire will land on the ground and remains still. Back away and do not get hit when she dives after you. If you follow this and attack at the correct times, you should be able to defeat them.

Hint: Mission 4 Easter Egg pedestal:
To find the mission four Easter Egg pedestal, jump under the second bridge on mission 3.

Hint: Mission 5 Easter Egg puzzle:
Although you are instructed to kill all the gargoyles, just have them knock into the statues. This is an easy way to complete this mini-game.
