Do you mean the dub? Dubs usually add more swearing than the original had, or embellish the swears. I've seen one word translated as several different curses before.

I don't remember him replacing what could have been witty banter to simply saying "f*** you*".

Dubs are still official, get over it fanboys.

Meanwhile, Dante did call the jailer a pudge ****.

I never watched it...

But what I can tell you, is in Japanese they may be subtitled at "Damn" or "S**t" however, in japan they have one word for all of those things. So it is often subbed as a cuss word, Pokemon has "cussing" in the Japanese sub.

But they are not cuss words... Just a single word with the meaning of several of our swear words... And the translation team just leaves them as cussing...

While it is cannon, it might not be the most accurate translation, could have meant darn, dang, shoot... Any of those...

According to a friend of mine they don't have a way to say "F*** You" in Japan, "Zake Nayo" Which I most likely misspelled, is the rudest way to tell someone to leave you alone, but is not a cuss word...

Unlike DmC, I don't think the DMC anime was trying to compete with the best that film and theatre has to offer.

Just saying.

Again, swearing is embellished in dubs because otherwise we'd have literally the same word over and over again.

Hell, I've seen TTGL's "Who the hell do you think I am" be translated in like 5 different ways, but it's always the same in Japanese.

In the original writing of it, he didn't use such extreme swearing, only mild swearing. When they dubbed it, they thought it'd be cooler if he did swear. There's a few reasons why some people don't like the anime and consider it noncanon (even though it is).
