  • Something interesting I noticed: At the end of Devil May Cry 3, where Vergil unsheathes his Yamato to fight Mundus, he throws said sheath to the side, traditionally, discarding your sheath was seen as disrespectful towards the katana and it's craftsman and was only ever done if the swordsman doesn't intend on sheathing the sword again (i.e. they expect to die)

    • @Mike Clark I don't think there's a retcon there. I think you're conflating the power of the Force Edge and the Devil Sword Sparda. The Devil Sword Sparda is, and always was, incredibly powerful and contains essentially all of Sparda's demonic essence. That never changed. But waaaay before 2004 in DMC 1, the Force Edge was established as a plain, limited weapon; without the power of the Perfect Amulet, it was just a family heirloom with a big secret. This has been consistent from the beginning of the series. The only way to unleash the Force Edge's potential is to transform it into an entirely different sword, using Dante and Vergil's pendants to form the Perfect Amulet, and then combining it with the Force Edge to create the Devil Sword Sparda. Arkham attempts to do this in DMC 3 but ends up getting Tetsuo'd by Sparda's overwhelming power, while Dante would successfully do it in DMC 1 after fully defeating Nero Angelo/Vergil. Had Vergil managed to get both pendants and transform Force Edge into Sparda, then sure, he'd have the superior sword. But there's a reason he uses Force Edge in conjunction with Yamato; the Force Edge alone can't channel his demonic power. This is also why in DMC 1, Dante can't activate his DT with Force Edge.

    • @Anthony Hà Yes. That’s after the retcon. That’s certainly not what the writers would have been thinking about in 2004. The retcon was Sparda’s power. Originally he poured his entire being into The Force Edge/Sparda. The retcon between 4 and 5 was that he split his power and put some in Rebellion, some in Yamato, and some in FE/DSS. Before said retcon, Yamato and Rebellion were just very powerful demon arms Sparda had, but not some incredibly godly devil arm like Sparda itself. So, yes, as of today, when we look back at the end of DMC, for some reason Vergil used an inferior sword (really for most of the fight) and especially for the last clash. We don’t know what it is, if you want to headcanon it’s so he’d have an excuse to lose, fine, whatever. But in 2004 when the script was being written that is not what they were writing Vergil to think, because he absolutely was using the stronger sword at that time.

    • @Mike Clark The Force Edge is canonically just a well-crafted broadsword, not a demon/magic weapon. It doesn't really reach its full potential until you merge it with the Perfect Amulet, at which point it becomes the Demon Sword Sparda. Until then, it's just a cool normal sword. Meanwhile, both Yamato and Rebellion are extremely magical swords brimming with demonic power. I'm not sure what recon you're referring to; Force Edge was also very limited in DMC 1, and Vergil only uses it in a pair with Yamato.

      Anthony HàAnthony Hà2 ай бұрын
    • @Anthony Hà Why are you if the opinion Force Edge was weaker than Yamato? Because it absolutely was NOT before the retcon. It was much stronger.

  • I know some people find weird Vergil's change of heart at the end of DMC V because the game is a bit cryptic about what V really is and does, but seeing all his growth in the manga you can really understand why Vergil changes his outlook in life, he really saw humanity down, but now just like his brother and father sees them as equals and by also accepting that he was in need of not only power, but to rely on others, like his brother and son by also finally putting an end to the trauma of the loss of his mother, yeah it may have taken supplementary media to fully understand everything but I still feel very satisfied with Vergil and his little plot to get a character arc by "doing absolutely nothing".

  • Honestly, Urizen's decision to basically do to Trish and Lady, what Mundas did to him really paints how far he's fallen. Even Sparda, a full-fledged demon was capable of empathy and, being in a similar situation, killing them would've been a more merciful way of getting rid of them, but instead he went with the most heinous way possible. Here's hoping Trish and Lady were just in a coma for most of it

    • @J. W. I'm not sure if i agree. Cavaliere Angelo threw a motorcycle at Dante the exact same way Trish did back when they met, and he (she?) immediatly recognised the sparda, maybe because the Angelo was tasked with finding it, or maybe because it was Trish's sword. I'd like to think that Cavaliere Angelo ran away from V but threw the nearest object at Dante due to how many headaches he gave her.

  • A series that can summarized with the phrase: "If you want it, then you'll have to take it. But you already knew that." And it took me way too long to realize that the reason why Dante, Vergil, and Nero are so strong being part human is because Red Orbs are condensed human blood which powers up demons. And those three have human blood constantly mingling with their demon blood

    • The actual reason why Dante, Vergil, and Nero are so strong is because the human world and the demon world used to be one place, until a demon god split them in half with a spear. So because the white haired bois are both human and demon (being the first unification of both worlds in forever) they are absurdly strong.

And when Vergil is told, he doesn't even question it...has this almost "yeah that makes sense" type response. While it's clear that Dante is the more human, neither of them questioned (when they learned Nero's connection) that Vergil would be the father. I'm sure there's commentary there but it makes me giggle.

    • ​@Moon Moon yes. That's why Dan convinced the team to change it to "that was a long time ago" and it feels better. The other line would be so OOC for Vergil, judging by his actions in DMC 3 and his cold character in general. I think those lazy intro and outro in SE of DMC4 confused fans a little bit. It felt like Vergil only spent a day in Fortuna, rolled into ONS and left. Besides i don't think that woman was a priestess, could be a librarian or regular citizen who help Vergil to gather some info about Fortuna, Sparda and Order of the Sword. And she definitely had to be special for Vergil to want to have sex with her. Capcom really have to think this through and give us proper story in case they want to continue with this topic.

    • @Lara Andreytseva I don’t think he did, but I will say that Dan has said that he was supposed to say a line about “having fun” in his youth in reference to Nero’s mother. But Dan thought that if it caught Vergil’s attention and he thought it was worth his time, it was very significant. So Nero’s mother mattered to Vergil in some capacity. Idk if the story in the original comment is true (it may not be, it’s speculated that the random woman at the beginning of 4 is Nero’s mother) but Nero’s mother meant something to Vergil.

    • Late to the game, but I’ll throw in an idea… I think I’d like to see DMC6 actually start where DMC5 truly leaves off, and actually give Lady and Trish a little lore love. Watching this and reflecting on it, the series through 4 is really the stories of Dante and Nero (obviously as they are the protagonists). As fleshed out as Vergil is, until DMC5 I think he’s still viewed as Dante’s brother or Dante’s rival. Remember, on a very real level you actually do get to play “Vergil” through the first run of the game… and also on a strange level, Max0r’s description of the game as “Vergil hiring Vergil’s brother and Vergil’s son to defeat Vergil so that Vergil can become Vergil, featuring Vergil” has a fair amount of truth to it. DMC5 is really Nero’s and Vergil’s story, with Dante being established enough to remain awesome while taking more of a background role. So why not take advantage of the situation at game’s end? Dante and Vergil can stay trapped indefinitely fighting each other and getting stronger until they’re needed, and Nero’s doing his thing with Kyrie and Nico. So at least make the start of DMC6 follow Lady and Trish doing jobs for Morrison and highlighting more of their back stories and the unique relationship they share… introduce some new gameplay loops with them, build them up and then when the plot builds to the point where things are getting beyond their ability to handle, then have the three make their triumphant entrances. Have Nero appear first, and then when things are at their most bleak the brothers show up, presumably even more crazy powered after such a long concentrated time honing each other’s skill through their duels. And in the end, have Dante and Vergil leave with Nero to impart their skill and experience to the next generation… leaving Devil May Cry to Lady and Trish, this time for real rather than through Morrison, because they’ve proven their own strength and can be trusted just as the brothers gave their trust to Nero at the end of DMC5. Which leaves DMC7 to jump forward with Nero, with Trish and Lady, or with all of them… I don’t know if that would really work, but that would be something I’d like to see at least… 😁

Couldn’t praise your skills on doing this enough, DMC franchise Is by far my favorite story & game and I really hope Capcom gives us 2 more games One for Sparda and another Involving the sons of sparda and grandson of sparda for a grand rematch against Mundus we as fans need that so hopefully we get it!!

  • For anyone who doesn't know. It is speculated that Dante was extremely depressed during the events of the anime and the second game due to him having to beat his brother again and thinking he actually killed him. He blamed himself for letting Vergil go in the events of the third game and had lost his reason to live. He had no family left and he also had taken revenge against the destroyer of his family. This explains why he might have lost a lot of character and his usual cocky attitude in 2 and the anime to a certain extent.

  • "I'm not letting you die!" -Nero That was the line that got me into the series to begin with. I don't remember how or when I saw that clip, but the second I heard that voice acting I backed out of the video. It was quite a while before I actually picked up the games after that, probably a couple years, but I always kept myself blind to it, knowing I'd get there eventually. And finally, today, I made it. I finally saw that part of DMC 5 for myself, after fighting my way through the series in the last couple weeks. And I'm so glad I did. I don't know what comes next for Devil May Cry, but I do know I'll be there waiting to see it.

  • I do also feel there is a lot of wasted potential in regards to Trish's character, her story, and characterization. It would have been very interesting to see her come to terms with her new life as a devil hunter on the side of humanity, as opposed to being a servant of Mündus hell - bent on wiping all humans out. There is also the resemblance she shares with Eva. How did she feel about it? Did she ever have a crisis over it? Did she ever feel like she was living in Eva's shadow? How does Danté feel about her? Etc.

    • Corey Parker *thinks* I don't THINK so.....? She's ... if I remember correctly, either a lesser demon or a demonic construct altogether, either way she's made to resemble Eva. And visually (although some of this may just be graphical improvements) Capcom has gone out of their way to show Dante aging over the series but Trish doesn't seem to have. Lady has, too, even Nero to a lesser degree. That's a dang good question Corey, I'll write back if I find something concrete out. Take care :)

    • Arguably, the DMC series has always had a character writing problem outside of the Sons of Sparda. DMC 3 gave the best side-character writing in Lady (and somewhat in Arkham, but only as far as fake-out final protagonists go) DMC1 gave personality to Dante, but the character writing for everyone else was fairly surface level. Trish is a hook for Dante and a redemption side story, little more. DMC 2 nearly killed fans interest in Dante, and tried to make Lucia cover that fact. DMC 3 is phenomenal for Lady. Multiple cutscenes focused on specifically her interactions. DMC 4 has Trish show again, but she's just sort of there, with little memorable writing to add much to her beyond what we already knew. DMC 5 gives us Niko, and she plays off of all 3 main characters throughout the entire game while Lady and Trish honestly are just... Plot hooks again, conveniently written out at the start and unused for the rest of the game except to tell Nero things that he disagrees with. Meanwhile after DMC 2, Dante, Vergil and eventually Nero are main characters and thus have a lot of screen time allocated to them, which by nature adds to the them being better written than the others. It's a shame, but my hope is that with the announcement that 5 was the end of the SoS story, we'll see more side character love between Nero and the DMC girls (here I am hoping they make Kyrie an interesting character instead of a damsel in distress)

In Dmc 4, his arm pulses right before Dante shoots Sanctus, and then again in Dmc 5 when Vergil stumbles into his garage. The reason it doesn’t pulse when he’s aquatinted with V is because he already met him since V is a part of Vergil and well… his arm is gone

  • Vergil is the best character in the entire series - He is both amazingly written and flawed as a character. All aspects of who he is - From his desire to not only attain power but to protect and be protected. The Dichotomy of his character is one of the best part about the series, painting him as a heartless villain whilst also making him caring and almost protective of his brother in his most dire moments and honestly I wish that Capcom would make a game of him separate to Dante rather than just having him as a reskin. Maybe Devil May Cry 6 we will finally get a story that has both Vergil and Dante as playable characters with their own separate boss fights and separate stories/cutscenes but I guess we will see when that comes in like 5 years xD.
