Why is it that in almost every DMC media (including reboot, maybe exluding 2 seeing as there is just a thin as hell plot) no demon on earth or the underworld has heard of Dante, in the reboot and 3 it's understandable due to them being young and apparently quite new at the job, but take for example DMC1 phantom has no clue that Dante is the SoS, despite most media showing that Sparda is like some amalgam of Dante and Virgil, and by DMC1 dante has clearly been in business a while, but nope, still no demons seem to know of a red coated, silver hair cocky bastard with a huge sword cutting down demons left and right, upto including THEIR GOD.
** Other than ''[=DMC1=]'' being the first game, you can chalk it up to Phantom being an idiot, despite being powerful. Griffin figured out who Dante was and related to pretty easily. In ''[=DMC4=]'', Berial knew who he was instantly while Echidna and Dagon didn't. It seems powerful egotistical demons like Dagon and Echidna tend to not know nor care who they're facing. As far as they knew, Dante was just some smart mouth normal human. Beowulf and Nevan only knew who Dante was due to the former had recognized Sparda's scent ([[spoiler: though him not knowing about Vegil did him in]]), and the latter had previous encounter or possible fling with Sparda. If Nevan even knew about Vergil is ambiguous and never brought up, but odds are probably not. Vergil kept a lower profile compared to Dante ,so not as many demons knew about him. And it's makes sense most demons don't know about Vergil, because he is assumed, and later dies at the point. So most demons would not know about him, unless your name is [[spoiler: Mundus]]. Dante's reputation certainly grows in the Animated series. It's takes place after 3 and 1, so defeating Mundus make him a bigger name in the underworld, and most demons seem to know who he is throughout the episodes.

* He also has a health bar in his first appearance, so you could argue he's a WarmupBoss who then becomes a DegradedBoss.

* [[spoiler: The Staff of Hermes is ''required'' to open the painting portals, which are used to obtain more items necessary for entering the Underworld, to confront Mundus.]] You guided Dante all around the castle [[spoiler: in search of the staff]], and both of you concluded that it was not in the castle.

** Also Lady's boss fight mostly involves her running away and spamming projectiles, whereas in Mission 13 it would have been a relatively close range fight with no cover or higher ground to take advantage of, unlike in the library.

* The fact [[spoiler: Nero quotes Vergil's "need more power" speech when first activating his Devil Trigger and uses Yamato to do it]] already makes it pretty clear there's some connection between the two. We just don't know what it is yet.

* It appears along with a group of enemies, and I'm pretty certain you have to fight two of them. It's more of a breather boss.

[[WMG:About Vergil's ending in the Special Edition...]]
The only thing his ending showed us is [[spoiler: him walking out of Fortuna, while he casts the shadow of Nelo Angelo/Nero's Devil Trigger.]] What is that supposed to imply? Is Capcom just trolling us? [[spoiler: Are they confirming that Vergil really is related to Nero?]] I need more answers!
