Considering Vergil was fine with Demon World opening which would kill plenty of people just to get Sparda's power, yes.

Exactly, that is what I'm talking about.

Expect some guys saying he is the good guy, though, lol.

by the way, can someone clarify to me what's the difference between antagonist and villain in general for games/animes? (wiki, google said that villain are aka antagonists, same thing...)

this is what I understand:
villain - does something evil, remains evil, "never" sides with the protagonist?
antagonist - does something against the protagonist, may or may not become acquitances/friends later with the protagonist/other main characters, might team up with protagonist

so I'm pretty much confused

I was just asking because my friend asks me to make a favorite villain character list, and I was wondering if Virgil is or not, so that he'll be my no.1 lol


If you're familiar with Metal Gear Vergils as much a villain as Ocelot was. Which is to say Ocelots not really a villain.

Vergil is a villain, he wanted to open the gates of hell. I think that's more than enough.

Case closed.


Intention is important in determining whether he is a villain though. Vergil is the game's antagonist, Arkham is the game's villain



So, if Vergil had killed 100000 people just to show he loved Dante, he wound't have been the villain?

It doesn't matter the intention. The actions and acts are the ones that count. Vergil is the game's villain, he also was using a human ( Arkham) to help him throughout the game.

Arkham is also the bad guy, just like Vergil.


No, Arkham is the game's villain. Vergil is the game's primary antagonist. You have no clue what you're talking about l, as usual. As another poster said a villain is always an antagonist, an antagonist isn't always a villain



No matter what you say, Vergil is still one of the villains. His actions talk about themselves.

Better luck next time, Sean Dylan.


Val, is that you? If not, I have another stalker. And DMC3 only has 1 villain. You're wrong, get over it

While I do agree about Vergil being a villain in DMC3, I just want to say that bringing up TVTropes to prove anything is even worse than using VGChartz for sales data.

Who is Val?

I guess you're all mixed up. Don't know who that is...

Just read sasuke's post and you'll be fine, I guess. :)
