  • In “Devil May Cry 4”, I’ve noticed that Nero’s spectral Devil Trigger seems to be a projection of demonic energy, generated by the Yamato. This is evidenced by the fact he cannot generate the spectral form until he obtains the katana.

    It also somewhat resembles his TRUE Devil Trigger in “Devil May Cry 5”, meaning the Yamato was just projecting his inner, true potential. The “devil” within him that had yet to awaken.

    Would anyone agree?

    • Yamato acted as a power source and catalyst for his inner power.

    • There any chance Nero will acquire his own Sin Devil Trigger in the next couple games? Anyone can see plain as day there will be a sequel. I just wanna know if he'll gain any extra additions to his power, make it his own like Dante did with Rebellion and Sparda. One change I'd make to his original DT ability? Give him a different manifest of Demonic Power, buster was pretty awesome in its originality but in DMC5 I feel they tookj a step backwards. Made him into a xerox of his father with the whole summoned swords bit from 4 & five. I woulda given him a unique ability like creating colossal phantom limbs mimicing his motions. Similar to his prior Devil Trigger but like Saijin Komamura's Shikai ability, where he summoned collossal appandages which mimiced his fighting motions. Another cool deviation would be to create these shadowy phantom guns. Big and powerful cannonry which focuses and magnifies the shooting of his blue rose. Summon between three or four different big guns at once from out of nowhere or one massive and equally more powerul one which as the stopping power of Dr. Faust's red hot night technique. Or maybe make them pinpoints markers where Nero point's his bringer claws to imprint a targeting sign where he wants blasts of raw devil power to rain fire down from the heavens upon. Like a kill satellite or an orbital bombardment.

    • That "unique ability" would immediately have people saying it was copied from the Wicked Weaves in Bayonetta.

    • Ironically Bayonetta copied the "big mimicing body parts" from 4Nero.

      Kind of like how Dante copied his Swords's Manifestation from his brother Virgil's Summoned Swords? Or how Bayonetta most likely got her wicked weave concept from BLEACH? Turnabout is fair play.

    • Wicked weave from Bleach?? I doubt it.

    • https://bleach.fandom.com/wiki/Sajin_Komamura#Zanpakut.C5.8D Stoll doubt it now? If Beyonetta got the idea from DMC4's Nero; who do you think the creaters got the idea for him?

    • Irrelevent I guess. You think he; Nero I mean, will get his own SDT? I certainly hope so.

    • So you don't want him to have abilities other characters have, and your solution is to...give him an ability another character has?

    • It's called character evolution, Dante and Virgil have a Sin Devil Trigger. Why not him? Also I never said give him an ability another character has. I said give him an ability he can make his own. Hence the demonic gun manifests or orbital bombardment tagging. Besides whats so wrong about manifesting a phantasm whose actions mimic your motions? It's a staple in most fiction these days anyway. Plus since that's what Nero started out with it actually makes sense.

    • Becaue having all your characters evolve in exactly the same way is lazy writing?

    • That didn't stop them with Dante now did it?

    • ...what?

    • I think he's trying to argue that Dante's summoned swords from DSD are somehow the same as Vergil's. Despite, you know, being different in almost every meaningful way two things can be, to the point that it's like saying Rebellion is the same as Yamato because they're both swords.

    • Potato, pototo. Do the brothers summon demon energy blades? Yes, does Nero manifest a Demon energy sword with his new DT as previous (Yamato non-withstanding)? Yes. I don't see why he cannot atain some similarites while reamaining distinct in his own right. From what your saying Dante's doing just that yet you've no complaints. Not to mention I did combine the premis of his prior DT with his current DT to make for his own Sin Devil Trigger. How is that lazy writing?

    • The whole point of Dante and Vergil is that they have similar gifts as brothers, but apply them in very different ways that show their personalities. That doesn't really factor into Nero's character. Nero's always been very distinct from both brothers, very focused on powers other than DT since his ancestry was never really particularly important to him. Nero isn't about ancestry, he's about family.

      They both have energy sword thingies but their applocations/execution/usage is VERY different.

      IMO they kinda fucked up by giving Vergil that DmC style doppelganger energy construct clone. The more complex energy construct should have been reserved for Nero, considering that was kinda always his shtick.

      If he gets SDT or some kind of new form i think it should make better use of constructs.

    • No, wait a mineut. I worded that wrong. What I meant to say was I did bring up the premis of Nero summoning demonic energy construct guns. Or conjuring demonic bullseyes for raining down heavy ordinance from the sky. How is that lazy writing?  But in all honesty, why do you think I suggested his current demon form mixed with his former phantom form DT? Blending the two seems pretty distinct if you ask me. And frankly, it's better than drawing an energy sword to discharge slicing waves like he used too back in his prior appearance. but I do aggree that Nero's ability to create more complex demon power constructs should take more presidence than it has. It did in Devil may Cry 4 with his old Devil Trigger, plus his current one still takes too much after his uncle & father. I mean a humanoid demon form? They've been using that for nearly two decades. At least Nero's old Devil Trigger was unique in and of itself.

    • That doesn't really fit Nero, though, it's more like if Lady somehow had a DT form.

    • Then what does? If swords are his dad'n uncles schtik, what bests suits Nero? Everything else has already been used.

    • I don't really think focusing on the power of his demon side fits him as a character, since being a product of Sparda's blood has never really been important to him as a person. He's more about his family and friends and being part of a team (which is why being called "dead weight" affected him the way it did), and tends to get most of his power from sources other than his innate abilities. Plus mega-DT powers are pretty clearly associated with the interactions of Sparda's swords with his sons, so there isn't much of a predicent for Nero to even have such a power since he doesn't have any of those. If you want someone all about the DT, best to make a new character for it. Hell, remake DMC 2, give it to Lucia and say she's an experimental model of Secretary made of some bullshit Underworld crystal that can absorb and release enormorous quantities of demonic energy, swap the final bosses and give her the SDT power to turn into Hope Embodied or something cheesy like that, it'd fit right in.

    • I asked what would be a good power that reflects Nero's character, not a prolonged diatribe about what fits him and what does not. You say he gets his power from family and teamwork but the thing of it is. He's as much a decendent of Sparda as his dad and uncle are. So either way, biblic keepsake or no, his power is still power he draws from unity and familial bonds than not so that sounds kind of like double backing t'me. Plus his new demon form is as much all him as it is a porduct of a strong will to protect the familial bond as it gets. And the Hazy avatar he used to create could and should embody that if he gets his own SDT. Like manifesting spectres of the people he loves or channeling the spirits of deceased relatives for verying powers & abilities.

    • Also, Virgil didn't obtain his SDT throuigh his sword. He got it by eating magic demon fruit.

    • Naw, it incorporates Yamato's "true form" as well. It's not at all clear if Vergil gained power from the fruit or if it was expended turning a nearly-dead V and a nearly-dead Urizen into a not-at-all-dead Vergil. All Nico says is that Vergil's "time being Urizen" might be powering him up, the fruit isn't mentioned.

      It certainly can' be said hat Vergil's new ability is independent of Yamato when it's literally fused to his body when he uses it.
