* MythologyGag: This game's Eva retains the original one's association with the color red, though by way of her hair color rather her coat.
* 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.

* MeaningfulName: On two levels. In the Bible, Phineas was a son of the high priest Eli and means something like "oracle" in ancient Hebrew. More whimsically, Phineas Gage was a railroad worker who survived an iron rod accidentally ''getting punched through his skull'' in 1848, destroying his left frontal lobe and his left eye, but leaving him otherwise unharmed (at least bodily). His demonic namesake looks as though he suffered a similar injury and somehow replaced the damaged part of his head with a mechanism.

** It is interesting to also note that in Myth/ClassicalMythology there is man with a very similar name known as Phineus. In the most well known account of him from Greek Mythology, he showed the future to mankind and for that was punished by Zeus by being blinded and having harpies torment him and steal his food. Similarly, Phineas (who like Phineus is also a prophet) is also punished by a powerful supernatural being (Mundus in this case) and tormented by Harpy demons.

to:

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: "And AdaptationDyeJob: Dante and Vergil's mother Eva has red hair in this continuity. In the classic universe, she was blonde.
* AdaptationSpeciesChange: Dante and Vergil's mother, Eva, was a human in the original series. In this depiction, she is an angel.
* DeathByOriginStory: Dante and Vergil's mother Eva was killed by Mundus when they were 7.
* MythologyGag: This game's Eva retains the original one's association with the color red, though by way of her hair color rather her coat.
* OppositesAttract: The Angelic Eva and Demonic Sparda were married before Mundus killed Eva and subjected Sparda to a Fate Worse Than Death.
* PietaPlagiarism: The flashback of Eva's death has a shot where Dante cradles his mother's corpse. Also count as an inversion seeing as a Pièta usually involves the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of Jesus (ie. mother cradling son).
* PosthumousCharacter: She has several lines, appears in flashbacks, gave the twins their matching amulets to help them find each other, was personally murdered by Mundus in front of Dante, and left messages to help guide her children to unlock their powers. Her presence in the story is actually felt more than that of Sparda, who gets name-checked once or twice and gave the twins their signature weapons, but makes no active appearance and has no dialogue at all.
* StatuesqueStunner: In the brief instances they are shown together, this version of Eva is almost as tall as Sparda.
* WhatTheHellHero: Delivers one of these to [[spoiler: Vergil]] after the spoiler protected individual claims to have killed [[spoiler: his twin brother Dante]], granted [[spoiler: Vergil]], unbeknownst to her, had done a FaceHeelTurn by that point.
* WomanInWhite: In Dante's memory of her death and [[spoiler: her hidden message to her son]], she wears a white, sleeveless dress.

* 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]][[/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 Nephilim, he is assured to be much stronger than any human.
