Akumajou Special: Boku Dracula-kun (悪魔城すぺしゃる ぼくドラキュラくん Akumajou Supesharu: Boku Dorakyura-kun?, lit. "Demon Castle Special: I'm Kid Dracula") is a platformer made by Konami. It was released exclusively in Japan for the Famicom on October 19th, 1990 The game was never localized outside of Japan until a fan created translation was released in 2003. It is considered a parody of the Castlevania series. A version for mobile phones was later re-released on June 30th, 2006, also only in Japan.


The self-proclaimed Demon King, Kid Dracula, has awoken from a long sleep, only to discover that the demon Galamoth has challenged him. Swiping his father's cape, it is then up to Kid Dracula to set out on an adventure to destroy the monster, and retake his throne.
