I remember in DMC 3, Dante was a cross between muscular and lean.
No he wasn't, man was 100% man meat.
I was going to find a picture to prove this incorrect, but A: I did not find the appropriate picture, and B: DONT. Your sanity is at risk.
What I meant was DMC 3 Dante was very muscular, just not as muscular as DMC 4 Dante. Probably because he was younger. If you look at DMC 3 Dante's arms and compare them to DMC 4 Dante's arms, you'll see that older Dante is buffer.
Newer isn't always better. And I shall keep Dante's Force Edge polished and sharp till he comes back.
