I seriously do not see it.

I do not see how this younger Dante:

-Is emo in any way, shape, or form.

-Bears any resemblence to Tameem Antonaides

-Appears to be on drugs


Everybody seems to be blindly parroting this without really... looking at the actual character.

Emo: The clothing and hairstyle are very "emo" with the hair long and floppy and dyed black, and the clothes being very "alternative" /counter culture, has a very lean, super skinny build, etc.

He looks a hell of a lot like Tameem with the hair and facial shape/structure, not skin tone, but definitely the general shape and features of his face.

Drug addict: Has blotchy, messed up skin and an extremely gaunt, drawn in face with sort of "hollow" cheeks, and an extremely wiry/underweight figure like someone who (ab)uses drugs such as meth, coke, all the really addictive "uppers." He doesn't look like that so much in the concept art, like that mug shot that's been circulating, but the live action model of his face we've seen in the teaser definitely looks like it.

I think your the one thats blind here or you just don't have a clue what an emo looks like or people that take drugs for that matter. New Dante fits the description perfectly.

Not all addicts can look like Robert Downey, Jr. or Charlie Sheen

What are you talking about? Two completely different things. His hair isn't near that long, it's not obscuring his face, and it looks more like it was cut roughly in several places.

He looks a hell of a lot like Tameem with the hair and facial shape/structure, not skin tone, but definitely the general shape and features of his face.

His facial features are structured exactly like old Dante's face. All that's changed is the hair, outfit, and his age. People keep shopping Tameem's head onto Dante's pictures, but comparing them side by side, the differences are ridiculous.

Drug addict: Has blotchy, messed up skin and an extremely gaunt, drawn in face with sort of "hollow" cheeks, and an extremely wiry/underweight figure like someone who (ab)uses drugs such as meth, coke, all the really addictive "uppers." He doesn't look like that so much in the concept art, like that mug shot that's been circulating, but the live action model of his face we've seen in the teaser definitely looks like it.

I don't see what you're talking about to be quite honest.

And you keep mentioning his weight. He's younger than before. Believe it or not, people's body types change when they grow up and fight more demons. ...or work out, whatever floats your boat.

lokostill supports this topic...lol. I guess people in this board seem to think if your face looks a certain way you are automatically a drug addict. They dont realize that stress can do the same damage. If you stress out long enough, you are gonna look like a junky. And young Dante, not having a childhood n all battling all these demons, it looks like he has been leading a stressful life.

n yea, he doesnt look like tameem in any shape or form. If anything, tameem is the one trying to look like dante with that hairstyle he got.

rpg: Your links are no good. Logic states that of course you'd go searching for pictures that back up your point. Hence it's not an unbiased picture, nor can you disprove others because of said bias.

The "emo" stereotype indicates the new Dante looks emo. You have to remember that the word "emo" is widely used for people who seem gloomy. Yes you can also say someone is "emo" according to what they wear.

Then there's this picture(http://i54.tinypic.com/16m99p2.jpg) with an old picture of Tameem compared to Dante. The similarities are as follows: eyebrows are exactly the same. The length of the forehead is exactly the same. Jaw width is the exact same. Eyes are the exact same. Nose size is the exact same. So basically his whole facial structure is the same, but there are some things put in there to throw you off. There are a lot of similarities and I honestly don't understand why you had to create yet another topic about this... Other than perhaps trying to one-up others through confrontation?

The "junkie" stereotype indicates the new Dante looks like a junkie. There's actually a rehab clinic a few streets from here, I can take pictures and show you just what I mean, OR I can explain. Which would actually require less effort from me and not piss off some junkies. The most apparent features of a drug addict are as follows: underweight with VERY skinny and dry arms, which the new Dante has. Pale and skinny facial structure, cheek bones clearly visible, the area around the eyes showing clear bone-structure. The face basically starts resembling a skull because everything is just so dried up. For instance, you can tell that that one model girl was a junkie because the area around her cheeks started showing more "skull" than what's normal.
Also the new stereotype of "rich junkies" have that type of hair. I will admit though that Tameem's (current)hair looks better and doesn't really make you even want to label him a junkie.
Healthy young people do NOT look like that. True it might be because of the torture, but that doesn't change the fact that he looks like a junkie. That means he "isn't one" but "looks like one".

Well in that picture he looks identical to Dante (I kno it's DMC2 Dante, but DMC2 Dante looks closest to DMC1 Dante out of all the others).

I 100 percent agree with you TC.
