Drive, one of the Swordmaster moves for Rebellion.

The Swordmaster Style is one of Dante's styles in Devil May Cry 3, Devil May Cry 4, and Devil May Cry 5. It emphasizes expansion of Devil Arms' abilities and maximization of their elemental power.[1] Upgrades also increase the maximum number of combos provided with the weapon.


The Swordmaster Style is a style that expands the moveset of melee weapons. While equipped, the style button acts similarly to the melee button, allowing for additional commands corresponding to the current Devil Arm.

In Devil May Cry 4's Automatic Mode, the moves bounded to the Swordmaster Style are executed more easily, but the action is unable to be cancelled. This can make it difficult for battling, but takes less time in order to charge moves like Drive.
