~ Dante's signature quote

Mundus... his heinous ways make me sick; killing his own like they were nothing. He's the one that took the life of my mother for sure. My mother always used to tell me that my father was a man who fought for the weak. He had courage and a righteous heart. In the name of my father I will kill Mundus!
~ Dante swearing to avenge his family

Goodbye! And when you do come back, give my regards to my son, will ya?
~ Dante to Mundus

All my enemies end up crying and begging for forgiveness, even if they are devils.
~ Dante, under his alias "Tony Redgrave", while killing zombies

Lady: Are you crying?
Dante: It's only the rain.
Lady: The rain already stopped.
Dante: Devils never cry.
~ Devil May Cry 3 (vg, 2005)

This whole business started with my father sealing the entrance between the two worlds. And now, my brother is trying to break that spell and turn everything into demonville. This is my family matter too. Quite frankly, at first, I didn't give a damn. But because of you, I know what's important now. I know what I need to do.
~ Dante to Lady

We are the sons of Sparda, within each of us flows his blood, but more importantly, his soul! And now, my soul, it says it want to stop you!
~ Dante to Vergil

Though a fight every now and then does make life more interesting, don't ya think?
~ Dante, Devil May Cry 4

It's not about loss... Strength is a choice. Fighting like hell to protect what's important. You threw away everything you ever had... No wonder you have no true power!
~ Dante to Urizen

Possible Opponents[]


The Legendary Dark Knight Sparda was renowned throughout the world as the demon that turned his back on his own kind and separated the human world from the demon world. After marrying a human named Eva, both Vergil and Dante were born. But then shortly after Sparda disappeared, his life and his younger brother's would be forever changed after watching helplessly as their own mother was murdered by demons.

Left bitter by the event, Dante took it upon himself to hunt down any and all demons that meant harm to humans. He became a demon hunter for hire, taking on any demonic task as long as it pays, though he has made a few occasions when the fate of the world is at stake. He long despised his demonic heritage, refusing to utilize it, but he has since started to master it.
