Prologue -Vergil- 1 is a cutscene in Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition. It plays at the start of Mission 01.


Arkham approaches Vergil in order to learn more about Sparda. However, he has his own evil intentions in all of this.


Arkham: So, you're looking for the book of ancient legends, the tale of the Demon warrior Sparda?

Vergil: That's not what I'm looking for. Leave me!

Arkham: Then what ARE you looking for? A demon that impregnates a woman, who then bears twin sons... That's the story, isn't it?

Vergil: Leave me. I won't tell you a third time.

Arkham: People inherently fear evil. However... occasionally, a person may become seduced by evil.

Vergil: What are you getting at?

Arkham: Share with me. The story of Sparda...

Arkham: 貴方が探しているのは魔剣士スパーダの物語 ——太古の伝説を記した書では?

Vergil: それは俺の探している本ではない 失せろ

Arkham: では 貴方が探している書とは? 魔物と交わった女は孕み 双子を産んだ ——そういう物語ですかな?

Vergil: 失せろ 三度は言わん

Arkham: 人は皆 潜在的に魔を恐れるもの だが しばしば人は魔に魅入られる

Vergil: 何が言いたい

Arkham: 私と スパーダの話を

  • This cutscene is a shortened adaptation of a scene in Devil May Cry 3 Code:1 "Dante". Main difference is the absence of the woman accompanying Arkham, that Vergil kills in the manga. Another is different appearance of characters – game uses model of Vergil with slicked back hair, and Arkham with facial scar.
  • This, as well as another Special Edition prologue cutscene, is directed by Reuben Langdon (credited under his middle name Christopher).
  • Due to the aspect ratio change in the HD collection, it's possible to see the book Vergil is holding completely disappear when he holds it near the book shelf, which would normally happen off-screen.
