I got a new antagonist in mind for Nero. A demon who is locked away by Mundus after challenging him for the throne, who eventually escapes thanks to the Qliphoth. Some time after DMC5, he manipulates Nero into his plans, by acting as a "client" or "fellow hunter" in slaying a demon that threatens humanity. Think of him like Eobard Thawne & Hunter Zolomon as well as the Dark Prince. What Nero doesn't know is that the demon he's looking for is actually him. So he's secretly using Kyrie in his plans to make Nero do what he wants and Nero doesn't know it. In return for Nero's assistance, he would offer information to him about his mother & her whereabouts.

The demon I'm picturing is a lycan/werewolf inspired by Sega's Altered Beast & Castlevania's Cornell from Legacy of Darkness. In human form, he wields hookswords.

In his DT is a werewolf and Sin DT is a chimera.

I wanted him playable for Special Edition. So let Vergil be part of the main cast this time with his son. While Dante can be unlockable.

Anyway, this antagonist wears green military-like clothing. And human form? I'm thinking Middle Eastern.



As DMC6 will be about 666 - Number of the Beast, think of the sequel as like a DMC1 vibe in some way.

Wait did you posted that on reddit too ? I replied to the exact same message yesterday

Has anyone thought of any new character ideas lately? If we're gonna move forward with Nero, we need a fresh new cast other than just Trish & Lady in the human world.

That goes for new ones Dante & Vergil will meet in the demon world.

Should the next antagonist(s) since the Order be a corporation like Uroboros or a cult like the Order but Satanic... like Sadler from RE4.

For new hunters & huntresses for Nero to fight, think like Credo (bird) & Agnus (insect) with those animalistic features.
  • Sea creature/fish - merman/mermaid-based
  • Lycanthrope/Werewolf
  • Dryad/Mandrake
  • Minotaur/Centaur/Satyr
  • Arachnid

I thought of a traveling artist stumbling onto a murder scene. He becomes a suspect because of his third eye. So he decides to solve the murders in order to exonerate himself.

Traveling artist? Third eye? Interesting.

How would he fit if by next game with Nero?

This is more like Re7 so having the DMC cast pop here wouldn't feel right.

Although you could always just have Nero be a mentor to the new guy. Nero pushing him to a better person is a way to showcase how far he came since DMC4.

Originally his third eye was to be his heritage but I think making him a victim of the Qlipoth is more interesting. The Qlipoth spores had an adverse effect on some humans. No one knows why not even the demons.

Yeah, something like that.
So they could be a witch/wizard that gets involved?

It feels like it could be useful for Kat. She had a violin in a concept art. Granted that might change to stencils but maybe DMC Kat is a musician

I'm still following JoJo vibes here. Since Nero is like Josuke, I can picture a Giorno who'll later join in the mix.

A dual wielder with a demonic arm on his left side, since Nero's right arm. He'll be a summoning fighter like Isaac from Castlevania: Curse of Darkness & Sieg from Chaos Legion. Wielding a khopesh and dagger against Nero.

If he dies later on, he'll have already an heir setup for him to take his place, but the young child would defy his fate and become Nero's future disciple.

The antagonist of the next game deceiving Nero by posing as a client but actually being the demon that Nero was hired to defeat already just happened via V/Urizen/Vergil deceiving Nero to recomplete himself, and to a lesser extent with King in the anime. Why would Nero fall for the same trick two games in a row?

The other images you linked turned into redirects. Let's see if we can fix that:

@Ronin
Maybe just have this character be the son of the Big Bad and the POV character for the game?

Like Starkiller from Force Unleashed?

@Morgan maybe Nero could catch on fast and try to subvert the villian's scheme?

@V's patron A subversion would be good. We need a little more of those. Subversions that aren't hostile to the audience and doesn't treat the characters like dummies that never learn from one game to another. (y)

I was a fan of Concrete Genie so I'd make a character like this-

He's some bullied teen who developed powers. Nero tries and stare him straight etc.

He joins DMC part time to fund art school.

He probably learned how to use a bo staff so he isn't helpless if he runs out aura.
