If we're gonna continue expanding your rival character idea for Nero, try it here:

Is Aaron's DT gonna be like super saiyan with the runes?

As for his gun, it's a revolver isn't it. Not a modern handgun? What about SMGs? How about grenades/bombs/detonators for his arsenal too?

If he becomes a reality, who would you have be the voice & face model. Will his accent be American like the others or foreign like Russian or Scottish? Maybe Aussie.

I thought of a few stories or "cases" for V that had a few ocs.

One was a woman named Farah who was raised by fairies. She was abducted as a child as part of a fairy ritual and raised by them. She's a slender black woman who fights hand to hand.

Another was a hunter couple called Yusuf and Saffiya. Yusuf's an ex-sniper from the military and Saffiya was a med student.

Brad and Julia had a son or daughter that became a hunter/occult specialist themselves.

Nero should have a number of new Devil Hunters & Huntresses to deal with. What if he encounters a comedic one in a way of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's Will Smith?

He doesn't take things seriously, but Nero does and will be annoyed with his personality.

From the thread in the DmC forums. He could pop up in the main universe.

In this universe, V stands for Vijay. He's a mage of South Asian descent and with a dubious/flexible character. His main summon is a snake spirit that was his childhood imaginary friend.

A big influence is the Doctor, John Constantine, Uryu Ishida and a few others. He's a more cerebral character than the others, often contemplating murky scenarios with an amoral undertone.

He may or may not have been present during DMC2.

His real name is probably not Vijay.

For reference- Shazad Latif as Dr. Jekyll (Penny Dreadful)

There must be all kinds of ethnic backgrounds for DMC to introduce.

White - Dante, Vergil (V), Nero, Trish, Lady and Kyrie
Eurasian - Nico
Black - Morrison

how about Asian, Latino/Latina, south Asian, southeast Asian, indigenous & middle eastern

I'm surprised Pinnacle of Combat didn't introduce a chinese OC. I guess the developers weren't interested.

Vijay is a British citizen so i imagine there are other hunters who were immigrants to Europe/America.

Let’s go over the ethnic backgrounds shall we? We have a Eurasian out of Nico. And African/black with Morrison.

if we ever get new characters...
  • Asian: Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Mongolian or Taiwanese?
  • South Asian: Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani or Sri Lankan?
  • Southeast Asian: Filipino/Filipina, Singaporean, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Thai, Myanmar or Malaysian?
  • Indigenous: ?
  • Latin: Brazilian, Mexican, Costa Rican, El Salvador, Colombian, Argentina or Portuguese?
  • Middle Eastern: Israel, Iraq, Iran or Saudi Arabian?

What'll be the fate of DMC now? Will a new cast change anything as long as the legacy of the originals remain?

The problem isn't the cast tbh. Dante and Vergil are interesting characters, and even Nero can have a good story with a few tricks (namely, make him more involved in the story and fighting for his convictions). The problem is the game's format (the 20 mission format need to be dropped), the lack of a long run story and vision for the serie, and also the expansion of the DMC universe which is really low for a 5 games serie. With an actual universe and meaningful elements, this will be easier to develop the characters by having them interact with the universe instead of staying in the familial drama.

I can add to this some bonus, like a true endgame for DMC instead of just the Bloody Palace (boss rush mod and a rework for BP), some relevant skin unlockable ingame by overcoming challenges, a better introduction to the gameplay for newcomers (not some forced tutorial, but something like a demonstration of high level gameplay to show them the way), and something to keep them in after their first campagn (can be a RE story telling style where you unlock the true ending after completing a certain difficulty level).

@Hungry Alien

Is there any way you can create new characters from other ethnic backgrounds to fit in the DMC world? The whole world now knows the existence of demons.

Games take a long time to make so you gotta relax. You should go check other series and let DMC figure itself out.

We're getting an upcoming animated series by the same producer who did the Castlevania series on Netflix.

We'll be fine.

I'm open to characters of other ethnicities because im of Carribean/south Asian descent. I'd just have them pop up like they do in Street Fighter. I'm just hoping they aren't too stereotypical/cliche.

For real man, chill. You started making threads about DMC6 really shortly after 5 released. Slow down, the series came back with a really good game that was a critical and financial success, it's very likely that we'll get 6, no need to sweat about it.

@Foxtrot94 @V's patron

yeah. Thanks guys. Guess I’ve been freaking out on how to move forward. Plus no sign of a special Editon for DMC5.

some part of me just felt like I’m running out of time. Like how long until my youth runs out.

hard to find good games these days

Bro im 29 and a half so i get what you mean.

But there are people older than us thats still play games so don't worry about it.

If anything go play an old game you haven't played yet or support an indie game.

Any other ethnic background DMC can explore? Middle Eastern maybe?

This is a WIP(work in progress) version of a fanart @absolitude did for my oc Vijay.

He started out as a rebooted version of V for DmC but he can work in the classic series too.

Has anyone thought up of new villains for the next DMC?

How about someone like Eobard Thawne the Reverse Flash? Thawne is always on Barry Allen's case. We need someone that ticks Nero off yet leaves some clues in some solutions for them to handle.

A villian like Lindsey McDonald from the tv show Angel could be interesting. He is a young lawyer working his way up the corporate ladder. It's just that he decided to work for Wolfram and Hart, a law firm representing evil humans and nonhumans alike. Over the course of 5 seasons he becomes one of Angel's more persistent villians.

If you want to make an evil corporation the big bad again, a character like lindsey is a way to make them more interesting.

Hey @Morgan !

I thought about your "terragin mist" idea!

It would be nice to bring out some new characters in some way. Since next game is 6, there should be the mark/number of the beast in it.

The mist would turn anyone like Sparda's children. Besides just turning anyone's hair white or any other color if possible, but acquire demonic powers. There'll be those who become hunters & huntresses, or some become terrorists/criminals or those who'd become the next king/queen of the Underworld.

Becoming the next king/queen or anyone turning into a half-demon or pure would get the Number of the Beast which will signify anyone destined to claim the throne.
