...wait...you're saying fiction often repeats or is inspired by other fiction!?
Taking from both inuyasha & bleach isn't good inspiration.
They took from other things as well. Tropes are omnipresent yo --- The amount of people that don't get Bioshock Infinite's story is too big Like nerdy talk? http://w11.zetaboards.com/Keepers_Of_The_Chair/index/
I was watching one of my vids and Dante said "A man with guts and honor"
If you look at the DMC1 Novel or DMC3, where was the honor?
I don't consider him having "honor" in DMC3 and he was crazy in the DMC1 novel.
So what happened?
He was honorable because he would never go and start a fight just for a kicks. He would face his opponent head on and never had anyone do his dirty work for him. Arkham really didn't do anything for Vergil. He gave him information about certain things and that was it. DMC Vergil did the rest himself. He kind of was a bad guy in DMC 3, but he wasn't underhanded. --- Newer isn't always better. And I shall keep Dante's Force Edge polished and sharp till he comes back.
