Devil May Cry[]

Enemy - Nelo Angelo
The knight in dark armor is well versed in the same art of combat as Dante's. Everything about this knight remains as a mystery.[1]
Light emission is always present before releasing his energy that's generated by converging the surrounding energy. Be ready for it when you see the light.[1]
His strength to wield a sword of that length is extraordinary. Keeping distance and waiting for an opening is a wise strategy when he starts to swing his sword viciously. If you time your sword swing with his, you'll be able to block his attack creating an opening for attack.[1]
He uses a special displacement method to instantaneously to move from one place to another. Determining where he'll appear next is a difficult thing to do. Keep calm and focus your attention on where he will appear.[1]
His powerful attack that is executed after he takes his upper guard stance is almost impossible to stop. It's unwise to go head to head with him. Use your speed and agility to dodge this attack.[1]
By determining which way the phantom blades target,they can be easily dodged.
The phantom blades protect the knight by circling around him. Destroy the blades and create and opening for attack.[1]
The pendant that the Nelo Angelo wore was the same as Dante's. It brings back faint memories of his youth.[1]

Devil May Cry 5[]

Nico's reports — Enemy reports — Bosses — Vergil

English version

Vergil Normal view
Son of the legendary dark knight and Dante's brother.

Lady says he once lost to Dante and got his ass thrown into the depths of the underworld.

Later, he turned his sword— the Yamato—on himself, using its power to cleave demon from human and so sever everything that was holding back his demonic side.

So V was the humanity he left by the wayside...

Well, they're back together now. Vergil's weakened days are over.

Japanese version





He is the son of a legendary magic swordsman and is said to be Dante's older brother.

According to Lady, he was once defeated by Dante and fell into the demon world.

After that, he probably used the power of Yamato, which separates demons and humans, to cut out only the demon part of himself.
V was the human part that was abandoned by Vergil at that time...

But now, the two have reunited.
There is no room for weakness in this man anymore.

English version

Vergil Dressed in rags
Seems crazy to think that the weird bastard who ripped your arm off was Vergil all along.

And once he took Yamato out of your torn-off arm, he could use its power to cut the human side out of himself.

But even with all that raw power, he couldn't take down Dante. What he cast aside in his quest for strength turned out to be the most important thing of all... Yep, his true power was inside him all along...

...Bwahaha! The look on your face. What a bunch of corny crap.

Japanese version




Vergil Now that I think about it...the man who took your right arm was Vergil. And Vergil took back the Yamato sword that was in your right arm.

In order to cut off the human part of myself with the power of Yamato, which separates humans and demons...

However, even with all the power he sought, he was unable to defeat Dante.

It's ironic that the thing he gave up in order to gain power was the most important thing he ever had.

English version

Sin Devil Trigger Vergil
Vergil's true form.

He always thought that his humanity was stopping him from unleashing his full potential. Well he's sure got his demon power figured out now.

Guess this is the payoff for his time bein' Urizen.

In this form, Yamato—the source of his power—is stored in his arms. Maybe this is the true form of Yamato too.

Documents - Old Man's Diary
I often think of that boy as of late. Wise beyond his scant years...
He would show up at my home with his nose crammed into some collection of poems. He seemed to favor William Blake most of all, so one day I gave him a Blake anthology as a present. With an expression of delight on his face, he asked to borrow a pen.
Strange though I found the request, I gave him the pen on my person. The boy opened the back cover, and proceeded to scribble his own name within.
I was puzzled to see him write on the book in such a way, and asked the lad what had possessed him to do such a thing. Clutching the anthology to his chest, he answered thusly:
"I have a twin brother, sir. We fight over things often, so I have to write my name on things to make them truly mine."
I found myself charmed by his statement, and at once envious of such purity. I felt, a self-styled bibliophile, had devoted himself solely to preserving the beauty of books...
It was clear that this child loved books far more than I ever did.
That child is no longer in this town. He disappeared amidst circumstances most unsavory. Perhaps he is no longer in this world. To think that a promising youth like that could lose his life, while a lout like me still drags on... The thought is almost unbearable.
I am already in my twilight years... Perhaps that is why I recall that youth's serene eyes at every opportunity... That pure, untainted youth.

Nico's reports — Character reports — Vergil

English version

It ain't no secret that Vergil's quick with a blade and when you see him in action, he's one slick mofo. That's gotta count for something, right?

Just think if Nero'd learned to fight from his old man, yeah, I'd like to see that!

Shoot, no use bitching about it now. I reckon with moves like that, Vergil'd have a real chance at sending that Demon King fella straight back to hell.

V (Divided)
I figure if Vergil's still got Yamato, then he and V are probably splitsville again.

I mean think about it! If he's really gotten it down, he might be able carve out a fresh serving of V whenever he wants.

Then again, there probably ain't nothing Vergil'd hate more than having to relying on his human side... Talk about issues!

Devil Clone
Doppelgangers ain't nothing new. People been trying to make them things using magic for years. Vergil, on the other hand, just cuts the suckers out of thin air.

The shape's supposed to be a reflection of his true form, which... Let's just say I like his human form more.

Now you might be thinking that two's better than one, and you'd be right, but I think it'd take more skill than most've got to be able to make it work. Probably ain't no thing for someone like Vergil though.

Sin Devil Trigger Vergil
Yep, Vergil's got himself a devil form too. He just absorbs Yamato into his skin and BAM!, full-on devil ready to kick ass.

Thing is, he can still use other weapons. With that amount of power and speed, there ain't no telling just how strong he is...

If Nero's thinking about a family reunion, I better get busy making him some new Devil Breakers.
