Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower is the "hyper" game in the Darkstalkers series, built around Darkstalkers 3/Vampire Savior. This game not only has versions of each character based upon the individual games they appeared in, but also the ones they didn't (Darkstalkers 1-style Lilith, anyone?). Other additions include the "Tower", an adventure mode similar to Street Fighter Alpha 3‍ '​s World Tour, along with the stage where it is set for play in other modes, and FMVs of all the games' cinematics for unlocking.

Set CWCheat code 0x00800782 to 12 at the player select screen to play as Dark Talbain, a leftover from Vampire Savior, in which he appeared as the final boss of Jon Talbain. The main differences are his intro, where he teleports in and briefly takes a crouching position, going by "Gallon" (his JP name) on the vs. screen, and having no "win" theme.

As for his movesets, they are entirely identical to Jon Talbain's. His Dragon Cannon super, however, always uses its Night Warriors graphics (with one head instead of multiple), regardless of which version of him is selected, which makes sense because in Vampire Savior, Dark Talbain's moveset was based upon the Jon Talbain from Night Warriors, which made him an "alternate". And since all versions of each character can be selected in this game, having this one was probably redundant.

Also of note is that only in his Darkstalkers 3/Vampire Savior version are the correct colors for his "glowing" animation used; in others (as well as at the select screen), he'll flash wilder colors. This may imply that it was to be the only playable version of Dark Talbain, as Darkstalkers 3 SP/Vampire Savior 2 is for Oboro.
