Any thoughts of Nero having a rival of his own next game? How would you picture it since Dante & Vergil.

My thoughts would be a new Devil Hunter who's prejudice to demons & hybrids. Imagine him with a sword in the style of a chainsaw. In styles of Deathstroke, Punisher & Ash Williams.

A demon-human hybrid that was raised in Hell and fights to prove himself to his demonic brethren, thus making him an obvious foil for Nero.

Something new, that doesn't came from the underworld, an entithy so powerfule that not even dante and vergil can defeat him...
Some mitological entity like death itself or some other kind of things

Someone named Weiss ;).

Honestly its should be someone with a sense of humor and wouldn't take Nero seriously (at first).

Nero feels wounded tight and more of a bull in a china shop so having to face someone who could mess around with him is interesting.

That doesn't mean Nero can't joke around etc but compared to Dante he's still a novice.

Oooo yes I love this idea. A human demon hunter that lumps Nero in with all other demons would be interesting. He could be hunting Nero and show up through out the game. I wouldn't make him the main antagonist though. I'd love to see another main villain that's a super powerful demon. Maybe one that Mundus could only seal away because not even he could kill it. Or Mundus himself could try to make a comeback. Either one would work, but I'd like to see a brand new character as the bad guy instead of another dude Dante already defeated.

Either completely new villain or somebody connected to the church where he grew u. I think Mundus isn't good idea, because it will put Nero back into Dante's Shadow.

The demon gunsmith Machiavelli. I found him interesting and hope he can make an appearance.

His mom is probably a one-note Eva rehash but having her still be alive and Nero unsure if she's trustworthy is an interesting story.

Someone who hunts Nero out of obligation. Having Nero kill his/her father and they decide to hunt Nero out of duty. This could be either human or demon.

Since Nero's Red Queen being like a motorcycle...


How about someone wielding a sword that's like a chainsaw?

I'm hoping Nero has a rival as cool as Trafalgar Law from One Piece.

Nero was suppose to have a Sherlock Holmes vibe. Maybe the rival will have something like that.

V was like that so sure.

You would have to give them a gimmick. Something to make them fun to fight/play as or watch.

Someone who is complete opposite to him personality-wise, so they really get on each other's nerves. Also, I would like to avoid having that rival be villain-by-default; maybe merely someone who wants also to protect humanity but has a completely different approach, which leads to conflict.

Yeah. I imagine someone like Joseph Joestar & Ralph Dibny/Elongated Man. Someone who cheats in his fights & demon hunting prowess. Nero gets upset with that and that he isn't taking it seriously as he does.

I feel like with Dante and Vergil in hell they would keep anything too big downstairs with them. I wanna see Nero going against an Angel! Imagine an angel that’s been cast out of heaven but never reached he’ll and has been trying to get back for centuries. With Nero’s Devil trigger resembling an Angel he thinks he might be the key.

Well the problem is no angels, no God, no Jesus - no heaven in DMC according to Itsuno. Which sucks.

Well if you read manga I’m pretty sure they mentioned that once demons and Angels were the same entity. There is no clarification as to what happened but... the only description of angels in the devil may cry series is that they were beautiful creatures with crystal wings.. sound familiar?

thats true

Any other ideas for a rival for Nero? Needs to be someone who’ll take him on in a sword fight. Even a brawl if someone got bionics like Nero once.

Well I like the idea of Dante’s daughter being his rival. Or at the very least an equal that doesn’t agree with him.
