    Dante is the main protagonist of the Devil May Cry franchise, and the main playable character for the majority of the games in the series. He is the second son of the demon Sparda and the human Eva, and the younger twin brother of Vergil. Dante is a paranormal mercenary, private investigator and vigilante Devil Hunter dedicated to exterminating evil demons and other malevolent supernatural forces; a mission he follows in pursuit of those that killed his mother and corrupted his brother.

    Why He's Smoking Sexy Stylish (Pun Intended)

    1. He's one of the best video game characters Capcom has introduced.
    2. He's a fun and entertaining character.
    3. Dante has a lot of badass dialogue.
      • "Easy, Fido! How about I take you out for a walk? Come on puppy. Let's go!"
      • "Jackpot!"
    4. His designs (ranging from the first game to the current) are very creative, cool-looking, and attractive.
    5. Impressive armory, from the Rebellion, Cerberus, Ebony and Ivory, Lucifer, Cavaliere and a lot to name a few.
      • Even his Devil Trigger and Sin Devil Trigger are really powerful.
    6. His rivalry with his older twin brother, Vergil.
    7. Despite being a jackass to his nephew Nero, he's still a caring uncle to him, even if it meant bringing Nero out of the fight from his father.
    8. Dante maintains a very strong sense of justice like his father, and prefers to fight fair, thus he never fights humans or opponents that are weaker than him. He can be counted on to do the right thing, even if he makes humorously cynical quips about it the entire time.
    9. He started the "Featuring Dante from the Devil May Cry series" meme.

    Bad Qualities

    1. In Devil May Cry 2, Dante's personality was completely changed. Rather than being a cocky rogue, he is gruff and to-the-point, and rarely even speaks. Fortunately, it was later retconned in Devil May Cry 4.
    2. His rebooted counterpart is very unlikable, and his redesign caused backlash from fans.
    3. He did call Nero "dead weight".
    4. Although he appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, he only appears as a Mii Fighter Costume.


    • Dante is named after Dante Alighieri, who was a great Florentine poet of the Middle Ages. His central work, Divine Comedy, is often referenced or used thematically throughout the Devil May Cry series.
    • He made a guest appearance in Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne.
