|Full Name||Joachim Armster|
|Appearances||Castlevania: Lament of Innocence|
Joachim Armster is the only playable villain in the Castlevania games so far. He becomes playable after beating Castlevania: Lament of Innocence. He is a vampire, and as well as being playable, is also a boss. He battles with Leon Belmont at the Dark Palace of Waterfalls.
To use Joachim Armster as a playable character, you must @JOACHIM on the screen for name entry. This is effectively a difficulty level increase in the form of a new character. This is in due to the fact that Joachim cannot carry items with healing properties and is weaker in the physical sense than Leon Belmont. The counteractive benefits of using him as a character are his high level of speed and his high power level in the use of magic.
