* PantheraAwesome: Shadow, the Lion Gatekeeper. It takes the form of a shadowy big-cat, though its death animation make it look more like a [[{{Yokai}} large nekomata]] once its aura is gone.

* DevilButNoGod: But there doesn't seem to be a god to oppose him. Partly subverted in the enemy files for ''3'', where it explicitly states that the Fallen enemies are [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin just that]], fallen angels. God is clearly significantly less interested in the world than the devil, though. [[WildMassGuessing Unless he's just letting Dante do all the heavy work...]]
** ''Devil May Cry'' has a polytheistic setting, Dante even upgrades his powers by offering demonic blood to the god of time. "God" is either the [[GodOfGods principal deity]] of the pantheon, or some characters like Nero and Berial remain monotheists despite evidence against it.
** [[WildMassGuessing Or maybe]] this is the same 'verse as ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}''. If so, [[GodIsDead there's a VERY good reason why God and the Angels aren't doing anything to help]]. [[GodIsEvil Nor would Dante want them to, either]].

* BagOfSpilling: There must be a room ''full'' of demonic weapons in Dante's office by this point. Though Dante seldom needs anything besides Ebony, Ivory, and his sword Rebellion.
** Somewhat justified in that Rebellion and Ebony/Ivory are (arguably) his most versatile weapons, and at this point it seems guaranteed that Dante will pick up new weapons while on the job.
*** Dante actually does have a room full of weapons. You can see an entire wall full of them in ''DMC''.
* BeamSpam: Multilock. Admittedly not all that impressive.

** Among the enemies, we have Nelo Angelo's sword, Berial's warblade, and Bolverk's spear. Yes, spear. Despite being a {{blade on a stick}}, it has a very long, large blade. Oh, and Dante's Vendetta and Merciless swords from ''2''.
*** Some of them ARE huge swords.

* BladeRun: The Shadow enemies in the first game will sometimes attack by extending long spikes from their body, which then stay out for a few moments. While they're out, the player can stand on them, as seen [[http://www.viddler.com/explore/AccounNightmare/videos/40/ here]] at around 1:50.

** While Dante does seem to enjoy spicing up his line of work, in context of the events of ''3'', the above quote [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation could be alternatively seen as]] Dante ''forcing'' himself to enjoy the upcoming demon death carnival after living through an extremely physically and emotionally taxing day. Compare this, for example, to his behavior in the first two games and ''TAS'', where he's pretty reserved while on the job and even outright says in the original that Devil May Cry is a means to an end.
--->'''Dante''': The way I figure it, in this business, a lot of your kind comes around. And if I kill each one that comes, eventually I should hit the jackpot sooner or later.
*** Might be further supported by how relaxed Dante is in ''4'', which happens after he's tied the knot on his personal demons. He is, for all intents and purposes, the strongest being in Fortuna City at the time, and casually enjoys himself while he's there, even if he bemoans how the situation could've gone less messy.

* BraggingRightsReward: Completing the highest "Dante Must Die" difficulty in the first, third, and fourth games unlocks a "Super Costume" for Dante or the other playable characters, which grants unlimited energy for the Devil Trigger Super Mode. In this case, the game is still hard, even for a maxed-out character.

* FakeDifficulty: Rather than there being a button to hold to lock-on to enemies, as 3 and 4 would do, Dante/Lucia lock onto the nearest enemy automatically (and there is a button that can be held to turn this off). This causes two major sources of frustration - firstly, all attacks made are directed towards the enemy that is currently locked on to, even if you are aiming in the completely opposite direction. Secondly, you can't control which enemy you're locking onto, which particularly makes some of the [[FlunkyBoss flunky bosses]] more difficult since your character will spend half their time attacking their mooks.

* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: For some reason, the TokyoPop translation of the manga has Dante drinking beer instead of tomato juice. Apparently a fondness for tomato juice is too quirky a trait for Dante to have.

* AdaptationDistillation: One can somewhat call it this way from a translation perspective in regards to the first two novels, as several lines present in the original Japanese aren't used in TokyoPop's versions.
