** Actually it IS listed on the map if you check it during the fight, or even spot the area name at the bottom-left corner of the screen as the fight begins. It's the Unsacred Hellgate, the first area of Mission 18, which is only there to lead you into the Demon World and serve as the final arena later. Now granted, while the "infernal river" symbolism is still possible, and you can also apply the Styx to it (could be a representation of Dante swearing an oath to continue his job or his life [[spoiler:after Vergil saved his]]), the Lost Souls Nirvana also had waterfalls within it that [[AlienGeometries flowed into many different directions]], and given that the Forbidden Nirvana area also has a very water-like floor, it could be interpreted as [[spoiler:the fight with Arkham]] having sent all that water to the gate, again following the loopy logic of that realm.

** ''2'' shows that there are parasites that can control choppers and tanks, so possibly might not be the best choice. And keep in mind that Lady can cut through hordes of demons because not only is she experienced, her arsenal is ''loaded'' (Kalina Ann being the prime weapon) and most likely modified from the standard firearms.

** As well as showing that Dante has learned from his fight with Vergil, and won't fall for the same trick twice.

* Lady may be a BadassNormal, but she's still just a human with guns and no armor, yet she cuts through hordes of baddies. One can only wonder therefore, how those same demons would fare against a whole army of soldiers with tanks, attack choppers, etc. Even more serious demons like Leviathan would be reduced to sushi by a good aerial bombardment. So if [[MugglesDoItBetter muggles clearly do it better,]] [[MilitariesAreUseless where the hell are they when you need them?]]

* Vergil's moveset in Devil May Cry 4 is much flashier than before. However, considering that his story in 4 takes place before 3, it makes sense that he was not as precise then, even needing the Summoned Swords to help him perform [[FlashStep Trick]]. Vergil hasn't perfected his Darkslayer style at that point in his life. His need for charged finishers are also a result of his lack of power at that time.

** Also, notice how some
of his lack moves (namely Yamato Combo C) have him wildly flailing Yamato. Hell, he straight up borrows some of power at that time.Dante's moves (Kick 13, Million Stab, etc.).

* Dante letting Nero keep Yamato; by most laws of inheritance, a deceased person's possessions go to any offspring before sibling. So as Vergil's son, Yamato rightfully belongs to Nero, not his brother Dante. Dante knows this and is just using ItWasAGift as a convenient excuse to give it to him; Nero's not quite ready to learn who his dad was and it avoids the subject for a while.

** In the second Nero vs. Dante battle, Nero's final attack is identical to the one Vergil used in ''Devil May Cry 3'' to defeat Dante. However, Dante stops Nero as he has become more skilled. Although it is ridiculous that Nero would know Vergil's attacks, it could have been made to hint that he really is Vergil's son.

*Vergil never lost Beowulf to Dante. Unlike every other Devil Arm in 3 Dante doesn't get a cut-scene for getting it. Second unlike Force Edge when using the Corrupted Vergil costumes Devil Trigger form of Nelo Angelo he can still use it. Finally Nelo Angelo in first game is said in the file to generate light when charging his attacks.

to:

* It's kind of brilliant how the three each have different demonic forms based on their interpretation of Sparda. Credo and Agnus both see him as a holy savior so they have light colors, and while Credo takes a purely angelic form as he sees Sparda as an AscendedDemon, Agnus' takes an insectoid form similar to how Sparda's wings actually looked. Compare and contrast Sanctus, who fully acknowledges that Sparda is a demon and grows horns for the final boss fight.

** The Vie de Marli could fend off common mooks, but what if more powerful demons were sent, or worse ''Mundus himself'' paid them a visit, like in the reboot?
