The Vendetta is a decorative sword which appears in Devil May Cry 2. It is designed to resemble Death's scythe.[1]


The Vendetta is a thick, metallic sword that has a long, rectangular blade with a skull design and two pick ends.


It is thick and huge, but has a short range.[2] It deals the most raw damage of Dante's swords.

The Vendetta is found impaled through a corpse in a lab within the Factory during Mission 7 of Dante's scenario.
