I started thinking about this a while back. Dante defeats Mundus at the end of DMC1. Mundus is the king of the demon world a.k.a Hell. If he's dead, doesn't someone have to take his place? (This could be the perfect plot for DMC5)
I don't fully remember, It's been awhile.Berial is apparently his son or something... I think...
(it wasn't said in the game, I think it was the novel or whatever)
Also, didn't Dante simply seal him away again, not actually kill him?
Berial is apparently his son.
The Art of Devil May Cry 4 (2008), pp. 33, Berial: "Wrapped in flames, the Demon Berial was born and raised in The Underworld, a land known for its barbarity. As prince to the Demon Emperor, who has been sealed away, Berial faced ruling The Underworld alone."
True.It's always been in chaos. lol
Though I assume that it's pretty much the most powerful demons fighting one another to usurp to power atm.
Dante kills Berial, actually. lol So pretty much there is no longer any sort of ruler-ship over the demon world atm until Mundus returns/someone usurps to power.
(kinda) PLOT TWIST: Vergil lol
Also there's that abomination of a final boss in DMC2. The Despair Embodied?
Only in DmC. :wink:
I always liked to think of Argosax as the previous ruler of hell before Mundus.
Like, I know that's never stated, but that's just one of my headcanons.
Mundus apparently rose to power in the demon world, so there could have been a ruler before him.
I just like to think of Argosax as that ruler, makes him a bit more interesting than what he was in-game.
Well, Mundus wasn't killed by Dante in DMC 1.
Dante just sealed him, just like Sparda did it 2000 years ago. Besides, Mundus said he would return again...That's why Dante made a snide remark by telling Mundus to give his regards to Dante's son. It's a joke, where Dante knows Mundus will only be able to come back in the next 2000 years.
Mundus is the Dark Emperor, I think nobody is stronger than him.
However, it seems that DmC Mundus got killed for real, unlike his DMC classic one.
