Devil May Cry is quite a massive gaming franchise from Capcom. It was inspired by Hideki Kamiya’s original version of Resident Evil 4. Since the series went on a different path, gamers got graced with this outstanding title, Devil May Cry. The protagonist of the series, Dante, has garnered quite a reputation outside the franchise as well. He is considered a pretty modern protagonist, and here are some facts about the demon slayer that would astonish the audience.
Getting To Know Tony Redgrave
Since the Devil May Cry was actually meant to be Resident Evil 4, several fans speculate that Dante was originally Leon. However, the actual title revolved around a character named Tony Redgrave. He was an invincible man with a strange body capable of pulling superhuman actions. As Resident Evil 4 became Devil May Cry, “Tony Redgrave” became a moniker for Dante. Although the game doesn’t show off the character’s invincibility, it is still a pretty considerable part of his character.
What Devil May Cry Doesn’t Mention About The Sword, Sparda
It seems like Sparda acts as a downgraded version of Alastor, Dante’s most valuable weapon. Contrary to popular belief, Sparda isn’t inferior to Alastor by any means, and this is just a case of miscommunication from the game’s side. It can be observed in Dante Must Die that Sparda is the best weapon of choice. Since he can’t use his Devil Trigger to heal himself anymore, it wasn’t helpful outside of sticky situations. Sparda goes toe-to-toe with Alastor in its DT form without the need to transform.
Dante Hates Olives, But He Always Gets It In His Pizza
Dante’s favorite meal is Pizza. He absolutely loves them to such an extent that it can be seen in the Devil May Cry anime that he practically orders it daily. However, as much as he adores Pizza, he despises olives. What’s hilarious is the fact that olives always appear on his pizza.
Dante Is Always In Debt
Surprisingly, this mighty devil hunter seems to be always in debt. This is a running gag in the community, which has been shown in the Devil May Cry the Anime. This antique seems to be continued in the Devil May Cry 4 and 5. Dante is constantly getting swindled, whether it’s by his clients or by his allies.
Underneath His Personality, Dante Hides A Deep Sense Of Guilt And Depression
Dante hides a lot of guilt and depression behind the masquerade of his jovial personality. These emotions stem from the loss of his family to demons. He was determined to avenge his loss and became a demon slayer to gain some catharsis. Dante could be seen sipping some whiskey as a sad song plays in the background at the end of the Devil May Cry anime. He repressed a lot of emotions because of losing his brother multiple times.
Dante was 23 Years Old at the Starting of Devil May Cry
Guessing the age of game protagonists can be pretty meticulous. Since the dimension of time isn’t similar in every game, it can’t be understood with a degree of stasis. Looking at the chaotic lifestyle that he leads, he resembles someone who is in their early twenties. This speculation was confirmed by the voice actor of Dante, Drew Coombs. He shares that the actual storyline of the game presents Dante as a 23-year-old. However, considering how the franchise has spanned over five core titles, Dante is said to be 43 during the events of Devil May Cry 5.
