I don't know man. I feel the same but it isn't sooo bad seeing as you can still use Rebellion as a separate sword. Same with the Devil Sword Sparda. Also finally someone brings up Alastor! That sword is way overdue a comeback.

As for Vergil not doing it... Yeahhh, DMC5 in general is kinda weird. The whole Sin Devil Trigger and Devil Sword Dante part especially strikes me as not very well thought out. I'm sure it can be made sense of but it just... idk man that scene in paticular is like "uhh, ok. I guess Dante is just even stronger now. That's convenient."

You can't fuse with Yamato, as Yamato is meant to split things, not reunite them (thus why V and Urizen existed in the first place).
Rebelion was meant to awaken Dante's true power. Dante fused with Sparda (the sword) and Rebellion.

Meh I think even with the fusion property on the Rebellion, it still look kinda weird. Like Sparda would have foreseen that far and given the Rebellion to Dante in order for him to awaken the true power of the Sparda.

My main problem with this is how easy it sound in the game. Like stab yourself while carrying the Sparda on your back and there you go. Free power up without any inconvenience.

Nope, Sparda gave him Rebellion to reveal his true power. I'm pretty sure Dante fusing with the Sparda sword is just a bonus and wasn't a part of Sparda's plan.

Since the Sparda was still needed for Dante to unlock his true power, it doesn't look like a bonus to me. He got stabbed by the Rebellion many time in the serie, and never awakened the SDT form. Only when he absorbed the Sparda does he attains his full potential.

So yeah, this isn't clear if Dante's power comes from Rebellion alone or Rebellion and Sparda fused. But either way, I still don't like how we got rid of the Sparda so easily for something not that great in return. I don't like the DSD design, it looks like a generic glowing sword to me.

Exactly! It's on the same level as Force Edge. I would of preferred a sword like the Devil Sword Sparda.

As someone who's always hated the Sparda sword's look, I'm glad it's gone.

The Sparda looks delicious.

I bet if you sprinkle it with herbs and spices before roasting it in the oven till the meat falls off the bone, it would taste damn good.

DSD handle is very unpractical and should have the claws from the guard removed or pointing to the other side. Other than that, it's a useful sword. I like the pommel.

Vergil didn't do it because Yamato can't do it, according to the new lore. Yamato separates things, Rebellion joins them. When you jam Yamato into yourself it separates demonic from human like it separates space to create portals.

The Sparda sword is three parts of Force Edge, and two amulets, put together. For some reason devils can imbue their own souls or power into weapons and Sparda put a bunch of his own power into the Force Edge and used it to keep Temen-Ni-Gru shut down. Then the two "keys" to the sword he gave to Dante and Vergil, perhaps knowing they'd never actually give their own half of the amulet up, so it wouldn't be likely anyone else would ever be able to get their hands on that sword.

I wonder why Alastor has never been brought back, that was a cool-ass sword.

I got a amazing idea! Vergil gets Alastor in the next sequel! Then it unlocks Vergil’s power that finally surpasses Dante’s and Neros!

I miss Rebellion to some extent, but Devil Sword Dante is so versatile and blows the other series broadswords out of the water.
