* AntiHero: Less interested in being a hero than taking his anger out on all the demons who made his childhood a living hell. [[spoiler:Unlike Vergil, he firmly cements himself as an Anti ''Hero'' when, revenge complete, he decides to willingly give up on potentially ruling the world and allow humans to decide their own fates.]]

Added DiffLines:

* IdealHero: It can be argued that post-character development he has dropped his anti-hero label and full on assumed this type of heroism, as he is genuinely interested in the betterment of mankind as a race. and will fight to defend them from other less noble enemies.

Added DiffLines:

* BullyingADragon: Does this to Mundus of all people by explaining why he killed Lilith and Mundusís demon child and bragging about stepping on the corpse. When the more experienced demon finally loses it, Mundus comes dangerously close to killing him. Had Vergil not intervened, Dante would have ended up with a hole in his chest.


Added DiffLines:

* Expy: Of the original Vergil, but this version also seems to draw influences from V of V for Vendetta due to his video taped message to Mundus.
** He also seems to be an expy of Griffith of Berserk due to both having been messianic antiheroes who fell from grace and turned evil after a falling out with a loved one.

* Hmm...letís see. Demonic marking on his body? Check. Black crew cut hair? Check. Giant sword as a weapon and lives to beat up demons? Check. All the qualifications for a modern expy of Guts from [[Berserk]].

Added DiffLines:

* IdealHero: Vergil presents himself as a morally upright man with the goal of doing whatever is necessary for mankind to be set free, [[spoiler: however, Vergil's belief in the righteousness of his cause actually makes him a [[WellIntentionedExtremist fanatical extremist]] who will stop at nothing until his goal accomplished and his allegedly benevolent regime is constructed.]]

** Though Vergil still doesn't make use of firearms in actual combat, relying on his Yamato instead. like his original counterpart.

* {{Delinquent|s}}: According to Barbas, he violently broke out of juvenile detention eight times in five years. Dante himself voices mild amusement over breaking ''into'' a prison for once (one belonging to Barbas, in fact), is not excessively well-disposed towards police, and has a clear and detailed set of instructions for getting taken in by SWAT without getting the crap kicked out of you that he can recite off the top of his head. All to be expected when the justice system is supernaturally corrupt and you happen to be their most wanted.

* IcyBlueEyes: Subverted. Contrasting every other aspect of his muted, thuggish appearance, Dante sports a pair of ''gorgeous'' bright blue eyes, and they get a lot of focus when he's looking into his past or feeling strong emotions. Rather than Vergil, however, Dante is solitary, but not cold. They mark him as a loner more than anything, and while he does start off harsh and wanting to be left to himself, he warms up to those around him eventually.
* IWorkAlone: He even says the words verbatim as he's rattling off a series of similar sentiments to Vergil, claiming "trust issues". The reality is that he's never had anyone else to work with. Fighting demons only, you can see, isn't really gainful employment, and he initially has doubts anyone would want to help him.
* InformedFlaw: Classic Dante's fans, the Succubus, and Lilith all remind us that Dante is "scrawny"[[note]]probably because they couldn't shake off the first impression from his reveal, [[TaintedByThePreview where he]] ''[[TaintedByThePreview did]]'' [[TaintedByThePreview look admittedly scrawny and owing to the trailer's animation style, ugly as well]][[/note]], yet -- despite being noticeably slighter than original Dante -- he's quite well-muscled, most obvious when he introduces himself naked to Kat. Not that being scrawny would make a difference either way, because being a Nephilim, he is assured to be much stronger than any human.

* NonchalantDodge: In cutscenes and a series tradition. When large, fast-moving objects come his way, he tends to twist his body to slip by them, exerting the barest minimum of effort.

* PowerGlows: In [[SuperMode Devil Trigger]] mode, his jacket glows bright red, his skin glows chalk-white, and his eyes have [[RedEyesTakeWarning bright red sclera and pupils]] with white irises. Not to mention the glowing red veins on his face, as well as in the TGS 2010 trailer and in the end of the game, after defeating [[BigBad Vergil]].
