ive played as both vergils and from gameplay and cutscenes etc old vergil is better when u play as him in dmc3 he destroys everything without the aid of a doppleganger also dmc3 dante beat him once vergil beat that dante once and they had a tie that makes em even and lastly dmc3 dante is better in my eyes than new dante but thats just my opinion there is no need to make an arguement everyone will think differently thats life plus the votes show a lot agree
Uhm...gameplay ease is not a quantifiable source of a character's power, because it's based on the player's skill and arbitrary upgrades and "difficulties." I can murder things in Vergil's Downfall without Doppelganger with all the same speed as Vergil in DMC3. Cutscenes are also not great for judging a character's abilities, since they do plenty of things that we're not permitted to do during gameplay, skewing the results.
Then, when you take this stuff across two different universes, it's impossible to really figure out "who is stronger," since DmC Dante (in cutscenes) has enough strength to pretty much punch an entire building over, or in this case, a demon-god wrapped in a building. It wouldn't matter if classic Vergil were quick enough to parry all of his blows, by that standard, parrying even one swing with that much force behind it would snap Vergil's wrist like a dry twig.
