Simon appears as a starter playable character.
- The original concept behind the 2010 series reboot Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was to remake the original Castlevania starring Simon. While this idea was ultimately not followed through, Lords of Shadow's protagonist, Gabriel Belmont, wears armor which is reminiscent of Simon's artwork and sprite from Simon's Quest. Lords of Shadow developer, David Cox, mentioned in an interview that Gabriel is wearing armor similar to Simon's. This is presumably a reference to Gabriel being the first main character of a new Castlevania series, as Simon was of the original franchise.
- Simon Belmont's sprite also appears in Lords of Shadow after enabling Cheat mode. The sprite copies Gabriel's movements.
Simon Belmont was the protagonist of Paul *Anderson's original script for Castlevania: The Movie. Several rewrites of this script have taken place and it is not known if he will make an appearance in the final cut.
