Mirage Edge is a phantom version of Force Edge used by Vergil in Devil May Cry 5 and Special Edition.


Appearance & Description[]

Like the Mirage Blades, Mirage Edge takes the shape of Force Edge, but in a spectral blue color with a blue aura that causes visual ripples. When swung, it leaves behind a blue trail.

English version

Mirage Edge

A weapon shaped from Vergil's own infernal energy. There's something about this blade—its shape and attacks—that resembles Force Edge, the sword his father wielded so long ago.

Fast and furious, its rapid-hitting strikes can quickly overwhelm its enemies.[1]

Japanese version

ミラージュエッジ

バージルが己の魔力で具現化した魔剣。剣の姿と放つ技は、かつて振るったもう一つの父の形見、フォースエッジのそれにどこか似ている。圧倒的な手数を誇るスピーディーなコンボをキメれば、敵は気絶寸前だ。[2]

Nico's reports — Weapon reports — Vergil

English version

Mirage Edge

So I guess Vergil can just straight up make a magic sword from thin air now? Just swinging his soul around like a blade…

If your pops can manage this, maybe you can too? Would you mind…y'know, giving it a shot? For me?

Japanese version

ミラージュエッジ

バージルは魔力で剣を具現化できるらしいな。魔力の塊を振るうのだから魔剣と呼べるものだろう。

親父ができるんだから、その気になればお前もできるんじゃないか?
興味があるんだ、できたら、すぐに調べさせてくれよ。

Gameplay[]

Devil May Cry 5[]

Mirage Edge plays almost identically to Force Edge in Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition. It is dual wielded with Yamato and incorporates some of Dante's attacks such as Stinger, Helm Breaker, Million Stab and Vergil's own version of Round Trip, Drive, and Over Drive, with the return of his unique mid-air Stinger move from Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition and a new Deep Stinger move for his Sin Devil Trigger.

As the Concentration Gauge increases, Mirage Edge gains multi-hit properties. Mirage Edge also has stunning properties like the Blow Mode attacks of Balrog and the lightning attacks of King Cerberus.
