  • Yo guys, feeling motivated ?

    So, about Dante's age, yeah, Before the Nightmare novel gave us some new hints, along with Patty being 18 in DMC5

    So, Dante's age is like:


    - 18 Years in the manga (10 years after he lost her mother)

    - 19 in DMC3 (One year after)

    - 28 in DMC1 (Stated by Kamiya)

    - 29~~37 during Anime, Novel Vol 2 and DMC2

    - 37~~39 during DMC4 (Stated to be "almost 40")

    Aaaaaand Before the Nightmare states that DMC5 is four~~five years after DMC4, so Dante is, basically:

    - 41~~44 during DMC5, which makes sense by his look

    And since Patty was around 8 in the anime, in the anime he would be 32~~34, which also makes sense

    Also, in the new novel Dante says that he is unsure about his aging process and asks himself if being half human changes something

    So, what you guys think ?

    • This is backed up by DMC4:SE too. Virgil's appearance in that game is the same as in three, and the opening it says that his exploits took place a few decades before the main game. Assuming "a few" means 2, because 3 decades would make Virgil 9 at the time, then we have DMC4 20 years after 3, making Dante 39 at the time. Jackpot.

    • Before the Nightmare's prologue is 5 years after 4. Nicos(?) Says a year had passed since she met Nero and he lost his arm in that same chapter. So DMC5 is 6 years after 4

    • Okay there is one problem though if Dante was 32 to 34 in Anime he would be 42 to 44 in four and 47 in 5, Patty would be Eighteen in 4 and 23 in 5, see what i am getting at, Cause DMC2 has caused an Inconsistecy we do not know how many years it takes place after 1, nor how old Dante was in 2.

      so Dante being 29 in Anime actually makes more sense than what this says not being disrespectful or Offending i just stating what i see and know, however i could be wrong but you got to see it from my view, how can Patty be Eighteen in five when she was Eight in Anime while Dante was close to forty in 4 yet he is 43 in 5.

      this still would make Patty older than eighteen in five at least in the beginning of her twenties, the only character whose age is fairly accurate is Nero's, we knew he was at least Eighteen in 4 and 23 to 24 in 5.

      to be honest despite knowing alot about The DMC Series i really have no clue, but i welcome feedback as long as it's respectful and honest, i rather be proven wrong than Right

    • There is alot of info that got revealed since this post that really switches up the timeline a bit.

      The anime, DMC2 Novel, and DMC2 all happen at about the same time. They wall occur in basically the same year.

      it's really confusing even now when you think about it, why can't capcom just straight out tell us instead of just changing this and that, really bugs me

    • The only thing they changed was when DMC2 took place. All the time between insralments were vague statements and conjucture on all of out parts.

      And as it turns out some of those statemants were even more vague in the japanese version

      well if they do a sixth i hope this age thing will be cleared up, so until then guess just gonna have to deal with the info we have now at least one thing is accurate is Nero's Age cause we figured he was at least eighteen or nineteen in 4 and Lady's age i always figured she was at least sixteen in 3 so that would make her at least 36. 

      it's just Patty's age that is confusing being that she was eight in anime she would be in her twenties in 5 not eighteen but like i said just gonna have to deal with it until a sixth game comes out or something

    • The only age the series ever gave us was 18 for 5Patty. You should be moving the placement of the anime since BTN said that Dante took care of her 10 years before. We only onow that Patty was 8 in the anime becauase BTN gave us that info. Anything before that was an assumption from us fans.

      at least that part is cleared up, just wish DMC2 was not set after Anime and before 4 cause gonna be honest it kind of messes up the Timeline and kind of messes up how old Dante is or at least his age in Anime and DMC2. thanks for clearing up the patty age part

      been fan for years, i am thirty years old so i have lot of knowledge of this Series and other Game Series it is just that Capcom left us really out of our element with the altering of the timeline, so i hope you understand where i am coming from

    • It annoyed me too but after a day of thinking about it, i realized it changed nothing. DMC2 and TAS had no set time between other instalments until now. It doesnt mess up Dante's age because neither of them stated his age or how much time had passed between since the last part of the story.

      TAS could take place 2 years or 10 years after DMC1 and it wouldnt chamge anything. Same with DMC2. It was so nondescript timeline-wise that it could have taken place 1 day after DMC1 or 200 years after DMC4 contradicting anything.

      going to accept it as it is. i joke that i am old like dante but i am only thirty but honest i do feel old, there are things i never use to do and complain about how much the world changed, i never did that and now it's like well when i was a kid i did this and that.

      i bet dante would say the same despite that rest of his childhood he was alone and such
