Was making a list with the moments that always make me cry in DMC. In DMC3 the moment I feel my eyes wet is when Vergil cuts Dante’s hand away as he falls in Hell and that sad music playing in the background…tearjerker.Totally.
I like that moment too, it’s sad. Although I didn’t cry at it, the scene with Lady and Arkham when you first think he dies and isn’t evil gave me tears first time I saw it.
Similarities of Devil May Cry Classics and Reboot, from start to finish [Vergil’s downfall included]
-A few highlights-
-Kat’s magic portals have always been present within Devil May Cry. They have different functions, some are for teleporting or used as boosts to jump higher; in likeness to those in DmC that transported Dante into Limbo, created a protective shield or teleported Dante and Vergil all the way out of headquarters. The same similar magic circular symbols also showed up on Red Orbs in the earlier games and flashed up under Dante’s feet whenever he would perform a double jump in DMC1.
-Dante holding Kat at gunpoint is identical to Dante holding Trish at gunpoint in DMC1, also in showing their distrust of the two ladies. They even use the same hand and gun while aiming.
-The Order, though standing for different things in the Classic and Reboot, both have the same secret goal; power as a ruler.
-The cameras with demonic eyes are very much like those found on the tank and helicopter in DMC2. Even the themes of a bad guy being in power as Arius was, is in likeness to how Mundus is.
-The mention of angels first came up in DMC4, with Credo’s form taking on a slightly angelic appearance; though this may have merely been a phrase used by the characters that viewed themselves as angels serving their god, his holiness.
-Mundus’s spawn bears a striking resemblance to the demons Dante faced in the later stages of DMC1, in that both demons stand hunch over on all fours, and have a third arm and additional eye on their sides. The demon also grows in size like the Mundus’s child, though never as big. You also met these creatures in the demon world in DMC1, before you confront Mundus.
-Mundus’s tower acts as a substitute for his wings that he had in DMC1 during his boss battle.
-Dicks jokes began in DMC3 from a man by the name of Sir Jester, continued on in DMC4 by Sir Dante, and followed suit in DmC by a Sir Vergil.
-Dante’s Devil Trigger has more similarities to DMC1, when Dante’s eyes would glow red and his body would glow in a red aura, implying his Devil Trigger may not yet be complete.
-The battle with Mundus is in likeness with the battle against the Savoir, in that both contain the bad guy controlling the titans. In both circumstances also, someone is taken hostage inside its chest [Vergil and Nero] while Dante is left on the outside to fight the giants, and is also the source to freeing them.
-Final Boss Battle, Dante and Vergil’s roles are reversed. It is Vergil who charges first instead of Dante, and it is Vergil who is stabbed, whereas Dante takes on Classic Vergil’s role by striking his brother [the camera angles also mimic this]. These events transpire once again in Vergil’s Downfall, where the brothers take their correct roles as Vergil acts out his revenge on the manifestation of Dante he’s created.
-Hollow Vergil uses some of Nelo Angelo’s attacks that Vergil doesn’t, not even when he is the final boss of DmC. And after Vergil absorbs his darker self, he gains glowing eyes, paled skin and a deeper voice, much like Nelo Angelo.
