Devil May Cry Wiki

Opening is a cutscene in Devil May Cry 4. It plays at the start of Mission 01 when playing as Nero.


During an Order of the Sword ceremony, an assassin in red appears and kills His Holiness, during the confusion, Kyrie ends up in danger, and Nero decides to face off against the man by himself in order to protect his friends and lover.


Sanctus: 2,000 years ago... the Dark Knight Sparda, turned against his demon bretheren and took up his sword for the sake of mankind. Though despite his brave efforts in our names, I fear some have forgotten the truth of the great sacrifice.

If the events of that terrible time were to reoccur, the fusing of both the demonic and human realms, we, weak humans, would have no means by which to oppose our submission. And so I ask you to unite! And pray that even if such a dark time of chaos were to revisit us, our gracious Savior would shelter us from the storm. Let us pray!

Kyrie: Nero... What's wrong?

Nero: I'm outta here.

Kyrie: But it's not over yet...

Nero: All this preaching's putting me to sleep.

Credo: Your Holiness!


Kyrie: Credo!

Nero: Kyrie!

Kyrie: Nero!

Nero: Kyrie! Go with your brother and get outta here!

Credo: I will return with help! You stall him until then!

Nero: I won't hold my breath.

You got a jacked up notion of fair play pal, and it's beginning to piss me off.
