Who would win this fight? More importantly, what would the battle be like? --- DMC HD will ruin my social life.
You_Need_A_Life posted... Ryu is still a human, whereas Dante is half-devil. Now granted, Ryu has taken down full-blooded devils before...
...this one might end in a tie?
Dante has been stabbed through the chest a few times and just walks it off. Ryu doesn't stand a chance. --- I am a gravelord, I am a necromancer, If you cross me I curse you and when you find me, I hit you with miasma.
its been stated dmc is an alternate universe and it kinda did ruin it already in story terms dante is no longer half human half devil but half angel half devil --- Nothing is true everything is permitted.
Bullet through the head? He's had 2 of them within a 30 second span. Sword through the heart? All the time and they're enchanted too. Enchanted Spears from the "God of Demons"? He caught 7 of them in the chest at once. Light speed movement in a battle across the galaxy? Check Battles demons? Check. Battles gods? If Chaos and Mundus were gods then yes.
