Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalWimp: While Dante is still certainly one of the most powerful beings in the setting, able to kill thousands of demons and look good doing it, he doesn't do so with near the effortless, almost bored, grace of his classic counterpart. He's still able to do ridiculous feats, but they are slightly more grounded in actual physics (slightly).

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: Whilst Vergil was always a villain, in the previous series he genuinely seemed to care for Dante, and had an occasional nice moment. However, [=DmC=]'s Vergil shoots past the point of no return in ''Vergil's Downfall'' when it's revealed [[spoiler: he blames Dante for his troubles, and eventually tosses aside his moral scruples, becoming the leader of the demons.]]

* NeverLiveItDown: In-universe recipient of this. Whenever she is brought up by demons, she is referred to as being a "whore" for persuading Sparda to betray his own kind.

* ThemeNaming: Along with Lilith, granted it is FauxSymbolism rather than having any actual importance to the story. Eva is a variation of the name "Eve", of which is the name of the [[OriginalMan first woman and wife of Adam]] in the Bible. Meanwhile UsefulNotes/Lilith is derived from the name of a woman from apocryphal texts and Jewish folklore who was the first wife of Adam (created simultaneously) who became a demon after being banished from the Garden of Eden subsequently replaced as Adam's mate with Eve. The lovers of Sparda and Mundus, Eva and Lilith respectively, are an angel and demon.
