Nico's Character Report
Everybody seems to start any talk about Dante with "the son of the legendary dark knight Sparda." If you ask me, Dante himself is pretty legendary too.
So he gets a job from this "V" fella who shows up outta nowhere, and he goes down to the underworld to steal back Yamato from the demon king—the guy who stole it from Nero.
Surprise twist—even Dante can't stand up to the guy. I mean, he gets wrecked. Just goes to show, there ain't no such thing as the perfect man.
I knew the one and only Dante wouldn't stay down for the count.
But to absorb Rebellion AND Sparda into himself to unlock a whole new level of power? Oo-ee! These legendary types sure know how to stage a comeback.
I hear he was out of action for a whole month followin' his ass-kicking at the hands of the Demon King, but for some reason the Qliphoth was pumping him full of demonic power the whole time.
Not only did this speed up his recovery, it seems it even made his beard and hair grow out.
Devil Trigger Dante
If you're a demon and you see this, you know you've screwed up. This is Dante's "gettin' it done" look.
He may only be half demon, but when that half is the blood of Sparda, that's some high-octane gas you're working with. Most full demons don't stand a chance.
Not only can he move faster and hit harder than anything else in the room, his wounds heal up in a flash. This is the full demon-killin' package.
Sin Devil Trigger Dante
Dante's true form. With the two swords absorbed into him, his true power has awakened.
He can't stay in this form for long, but heck, overwhelming power doesn't have to last long to deal devastating damage.
With the power of Sparda unleashed, there's no tellin' the strength Dante has at his disposal. Maybe more than Sparda himself.
