This article is about the legendary devil sword. You may be looking for Dante, the primary protagonist of the classic Devil May Cry series.

"A blade born when Dante absorbed the Rebellion and the Sparda into his body. The weapons shares both his name and his will."

Devil Sword Dante is the newly formed legendary devil sword of Dante, forged through employing the newfound power of his Sin Devil Trigger, which he awakened after impaling himself with his broken demonic sword Rebellion and merging himself with it along with his father's legendary blade, Sparda.

Appearance

The Devil Sword Dante's appearance is relatively simple compared to its counterparts, appearing as a large two-handed ebony sword with claws running up its length, talons for a handguard and a red jewel on its pommel. When using Sin Devil Trigger as well as certain attacks, the blade splits open in the middle, increasing in length while generating a second blade of fiery red energy. Unlike most other Devil Arms Dante wields, this sword is not carried upon his person, rather, Dante seems to summon it out of thin air and into his hand when necessary, suggesting that the Legendary Blade may be one and the same with Dante's soul.

Story

When Dante stumbled upon his old childhood home, he pondered about why his father Sparda had given him the Rebellion. When Griffon asks what he was muttering about, he remarks upon all the times he had been impaled repeatedly over the years by his own sword. Reflecting on the Yamato's ability to sever one's own being, Dante wonders what the Rebellion can do and promptly shoves it through his gut. Doing so caused his body to not only absorb the Rebellion into his being but his father's sword on his back as well, causing a massive burst of energy and transforming his Devil Trigger into its most powerful form. Without a word, Dante flies into the air and heads back to the Qliphoth, quickly barging back into Urizen's lair and saving Nero at the last minute from the Demon King's chokehold. Manifesting a new sword from his being bearing his name, Dante fought Urizen, pushing him back.

Gameplay

The Devil Sword Dante is unlocked at the beginning of Mission 12 when confronting Urizen along with Sin Devil Trigger. In the first playthrough of the story, it replaces the Sparda sword, just as it replaced the Rebellion and rendering it inaccessible until the game is cleared. As it was created from Dante's own being after the absortion of both Rebellion and Sparda, it shares many of their attacks and abilities. While using Swordmaster, using the Style button allows Dante to form flying spectral swords, akin to Vergil's Summoned Swords. Like the Summoned Swords, these blades can be used independently from other actions, thus letting him utilize the crimson swords in combination with his other Devil Arms. When in Sin Devil Trigger, Dante defaults to using the sword and is unable to switch to any weapon.

  • The sword's expanded form bears resemblance to Akantor Broadsword, a weapon from Capcom's Monsters Hunter series.
