Devil May Cry 1- Slash Cancelling.

Slash Cancel showcase.

Slash Cancel is a canceling technique in Devil May Cry for Devil Arms and more specifically, for Alastor. It quickens the overall attack input by interrupting the attack animation with a quick move of the left analog stick.


When performing an attack or finishing it, the player needs some time to complete the animation. This is problematic, as it leaves Dante completely vulnerable. By quickly moving the left analog stick the player can avoid the unwanted momentum and continue the attack again.

Gameplay []

The Slash Cancelling can be effectively put in a fight against anyone, delivering attacks with a quicker pace and therefore, increasing the DPS.

This technique is so effective, it makes Dante gain offensive dominance against Nelo Angelo in all three fights, rendering him stunlocked.
