It depends on how you feel about Nero and his place in the franchise, how he was brought in , what he brings to the table etc but i dig the ideas at the end.Maybe agree to disagree or add on this? A lot of this sounds interesting
Vergil is totally strong! I believe because he's more in-touch w his Demon Side. Could it be that Dante is too? just not in the way Vergil is?I found your ideas very interesting. The comments that ensued were equally interesting. There were a couple things that I wanted to add. One of which is about Dante. When Dante fought Mundus, he was weaker than his father, Sparda. In the lore, Sparda was able to beat Mundus on his own, due to his superior strength. However, if you read Dante's bio in DMC4, it mentions that many believe him to have surpassed his father, Sparda. If Dante and Mundus fought now, at the peak of Dante's power, Dante would almost for sure, win.
Vergil, being as badass as he is, would be even stronger than Dante at this point (assuming he is still alive. He's like the Goku of the DMC universe. Always training and pushing himself) and would also be able to defeat Mundus.
On the subject of Mundus: It is implied that Mundus is still alive, and currently banished back to the demon realm (resulting effects of his battle with Dante in DMC1). Mundus COULD be re-introduced as the antagonist of a future DMC game, where (hopefully) Vergil comes back and teams up with Dante to beat Mundus in the human world, and then travel to the demon world to defeat him entirely (Can we say COOP mode?! Please?! )
On the subject of Sparda, Vergil, and Dante:
- Sparda is consistently shown to wear a purple coat.
- Vergil wears a blue coat
- Dante wears a red coat
Purple is a secondary color, made up from which two primary colors? ;)
Youre welcome :) I thought it was a very demse thesis that it could generate some more thesis statements and agree to disagree discussions :)I agree on most points and I like that there are fans out there who sees deeper into the lore and voices it. But I don't think Dante is done at all. DMC's universes possibilities are infinite and if the writers for DMC even try a little, both Dante and Vergil still has a lot of potential story-wise. And yes, for me, I think Nero being Vergil's son is obvious by this point. Especially if you look closely in DMC 4, the hints are everywhere. Nice of you to post this! Good stuff
She's less powerful than Dante is.Trish has more brute strength than Dante does but on top of that she has the Sparda sword and Eva's amulet, which means she has more demonic powers than anyone else. What did you think I meant?
She wasn't using Sparda then.She's less powerful than Dante is.
In DMC1's beginning, she seems to get the upper hand on him, but then he beats her. And in anime (which is canon), she can't do anything at all against Sid with Abigail's power, while Dante crushes him in the end.
That's correct. Trish, although quite powerful in her own rite, is no where near Dante's league, physically, demonically, or otherwise. Neither is Nero. Dante and Vergil are the most powerful Demons in the DMC universe.But isn't Sparda's full power only usable in the hand of someone from Sparda's bloodline?
i was thinking more like super saiyan power ups or the kitsune transformations in naruto but that makes sense.I think by perfect he is referring to an anime type of power level situation, like he reached level 99 and can't level up anymore. He has become perfect Dante, or something like that.
Its a possibility i just hope we get some new writers that could pull it off (granted they got close but close aint a success)Leaving a character out of an equation because he has reached full potential on one level is lack of imagination or skill.
I believe the whole Sparda legacy is still unexplored and it could be an interesting source of knowledge, characters and challenge.
And even if they were unable to come up with a new, stronger challenge on a physical level, that doesn´t mean they couldn´t create something on an emotional one to make the stakes high enough and grab the players interest.
