I don't understand where this "cool" stigma comes from. Like I have said, smoking is just something people do. Nothing lame about it, but nothing cool about it either. It's just an activity...


Tameem intentionally made him smoke to make him seem cool.

In the real world you're correct. In the entertainment industry however it's done to make the hero appear cool and tough and to make the villains seem more sinister and "edgy".

That's false. When you smoke near people you damage them as well as yourself.

Oh right, him too. Especially since his smoking factors into combat.

Dante is a character that was consciously designed. Unlike humans who smoke, Dante did not choose to smoke. Dante's character designer chose for him to smoke. Why did the designer choose for Dante to smoke? What was the purpose? A random character trait? "Ah, let's just make him smoke. Because, why not?" No, this Dante was designed with the intent of being cool and hip with young adults. This was stated in interviews. It's fairly easy to extrapolate.

If you don't understand why smoking has a "cool" or "fashionable" stigma attached to it, you should look into basic sociology studies. Related: look into "smoking in the 40s and 50s".

Also keep in mind the smoking thing occurred when this game was still part of the original DMC universe.
