The point I was making was that Dante in DmC differed from classic Dante really only as much as you might see in the average variation of comic characters from writer to writer


Riiiiight.

Old Dante finds a weapon: does crazy sheet with it.

Nu Dante finds a weapon: looks at them for a moment and walks away.

Old Dante never smoked and drinks tomato juice.

Nu Dante used to smoke and gets regularly wasted.

The same!

Actually, OG Dante did drink as evident by the bottle of Jack he has in his office. He just drank responsibly.


Yeah, but that was DMC1, when he was older. In the DMC3 manga (when he's around the same age as DmC Dante) he drinks tomato juice and I've seen no reference of him drinking alcholoic beverages anywhere. Please, correct me if I'm wrong.

Actually you can spot bottles of Jack Daniels in his office in DMC3.

Actually thinking about it, if nDante really identified with humanity, he should be lamenting about their current demon infested situation. Not celebrating his victory.

You don't get to see him lament because he's immediately fighting with Vergil. Mundus is dead--that's a victory. Now they can work on rebuilding.

For DmC Dante, getting a shot at a life on their own terms is more important than succumbing to "peace" while their souls are slowly being harvested by a megalomaniacal demon king. That's the difference, and it doesn't change the fact that he still identifies with the humans while Vergil identifies with the angels and demons.

He DOES mention being so drunk that he proposed to a mop at one point.


That was one of multiple "liberties" Tokyopop took when translating the manga.

Original: "Hand Alice over already. I don't have any more tomato juice at home, you see."


...You realize there are these little things called mixed drinks and cocktails, quite a few of which involve tomato juice and are usually a lot harder than straight beer or liquor.(despite being more girly, they mix multiple kinds, just take a look at a long island iced tea) Pretty sure the Hand Over Alice is a fictional one...or Asian.

Either way he is just bragging about his drinking prowess.

English version: "Listen.. You're a loon. I get that. Hell, one time I got so wasted I proposed to a mop. So I'm not one to judge. That said, nutty or not, I'll feng shui this room with your diseased brains if you don't give me the girl."


Damn, that's quite a leap on their part.

He isn't going to be able to identify with the humans as soon as they come for his head. Assuming that they live through the end of times.

Uh? Seriously? Where are they? There are bottles in a corner but are they identifiable?

Alice is a person he was hired to rescue.

And he drinks tomato juice alone, at least in the manga.

Dante: "For tea time, I'd be good with just tomato juice."*

Yes. As huge fan of JD i cant mix them up with anything. Im sure there wasn't any label ( to avoid copyright) but color was definitely identifiable

With apple juice (or apple schnapp even better), 1 for 1, don't drown it.
