That was.... surprisingly quick.

Anyway, as long as we can all agree to disagree when it comes to new or old Dante, I think we're all cool.

Spoilers for.... well, we'll play it safe and say the entire Devil May Cry series.



More character evolution. Dante had more of a natural evolution, I think, in the new Devil May Cry game than he did in Devil May Cry 3. When DMC3 opens, he's opening a shop to deal with demon problems, but didn't have a name. He doesn't change much throughout the course of the game - he obviously cares about people other than himself, or else he wouldn't have been opening a shop that deals specifically in work as harsh as hunting down demons for clients who wouldn't be able to pay (as Lady didn't pay him, and Trish was apparently the second customer he had.) He retains that same attitude throughout the series until his drastic shift due to some unknown reason in Devil May Cry 2 - but we don't see what caused that dramatic shift.

Compare this to the new game, where he starts out not caring about anyone else because he's "had it so rough," but actually changes when he realizes he isn't the only one who's had it hard growing up - and he actually had the power to fight back against the ones who made his life rough, unlike Kat. He goes from liking his brother, despite some things he does that he doesn't agree with (like killing Mundus's kid and... concubine, I guess?) to bringing up arms against him after realizing his brother sees humans as pathetic creatures who need "someone like them to rule over them." He retains his cockiness, but he loses a lot of his selfishness. He's still jaded, mind you, but he does actually care about other people by the end of the game.

The plot is still outlandish, and I think cutting open his chest to make sure he has a heart was kind of unneeded, but as far as Dante's character? He's gone through more observed changes in this one game than he has the entirety of the old series, in my opinion.


That's just my thoughts on it. Inevitably, someone will argue that I'm wrong, or I haven't played the original games, or something because they disagree with me. They're free to disagree with me - that's cool. That makes me no more right or wrong than they are for any reasoning they can think of, as this is my observations from someone who has played every Devil May Cry game when they first came out. I watched a few episodes of the anime, but kind of lost interest in it.


Couldn't agree with you more. I think we're like the only two who actually gave serious responses to this topic.


I think the majority are serious when it comes down to not be able to name anything that makes him a good character.
