Might controls everything, and without strength, y
They excluded each other because they have different vision of how they wanted to live they're life, vergil wanted power at all cost even if that means kill all humanity, dante on the other hand wanted to protect humanity from demon even if that mens kill vergil himselfPretty much this. 5 failed by playing too heavily into "sympathetic fandom interpretation" that absolved Vergil of his transgressions by pinning it on how he wanted to feel protected and thought Dante was the favored son, at which point they have to retcon something that was explicitly stated and reiterated in various media ( Dante's "My mother risked her life to save me" line in 1, Mundus's "The true enemy was you, Eva!" spiel in Viewtiful Joe, Dante's flashback in 3's manga of Eva warning him to hide as she draws the demons' attentions from his hiding place by setting herself as a distraction) to entertain Vergil's entitlement issues by saying "Actually, she died looking for you, so she loved you after all!" It's like when Loki ranted at Thor about being in his shadow and being "cast off into the abyss" in 2012 Avengers when he deliberately let go just because he heard the word "No". sometimes, entitled whiner genocidal maniacs are exactly that and their delusions can't be entertained. Imagined slights, indeed.
For a guy that wanted to be protected by his mother, he sure didn't care when he hired a man that murdered his own wife and orphaned their daughter, and then expected that man to murder the daughter too, huh?
And for that matter, Dante should have cared much more about what Vergil was doing precisely because of the memory of his mother if not the father on whose name he swore he'd kill Mundus. Regardless about how he felt about Sparda, Eva still died to demons, and whoever ordered that attack was still out there, and both twins should have had that informing their actions instead of some bizarre fujoshi-bait tunnel vision where they're each the only thing that matters to the other at the exclusion of everyone else.
The quote from dante in dmc 1 is still valid since Eva died protecting him and his brother, he was not protecting herself
Vietwful joe is not even canon lol
Dmc 3 manga can go **** for me, they didn't even finish it, so how can that be considered part of the canon? Better putting Eva flashback into a main dmc game that late it remain to a manga nobody read, and dmc 5 did the better things by remaking that scene instead of force itself to follow an incomplete manga
