** It's not so much her actions when she encounters Dante, but during the hostage exchange. She looks scared as she's walking to the van, and after Vergil's first shot, she looks at the blood on her hands with an ambiguous expression of...horror? Grief? Loss? Dante himself looks aghast. She's villainous, no doubt, but considering her ugly death, and that Mundus obviously didn't care about her as a person, it's not completely beyond comprehension that she might be pitied.

* Why are people trying to defend Lilith? She was the one who decided to sic her child on Dante, even the guy himself wasn't trashtalking because he was pretty disturbed.

**** They probably manifested to compensate for any weaknesses in Dante's fighting style, Eryx might've awakened because Dante needed to get rid of the Succubus fast, but could only do so with heavy hits, which is what it can do. Aquilla probably awakened because during the boss fight with Barbas, he was sending out tons of Mooks at Dante, and he needed to round them up fast, which is what it can also do.

** Mundus was just using the Hunter to find Dante. So once it did it's job, Mundus didn't need it anymore.

** Someone wasn't watching the intro sequence: "Soon I will control everything through debt."

* Wasn't Virgil's attitude a bit sudden at the end? Throughout the entire game he's been nothing but respectful to Kat, and obviously he wouldn't keep her around unless he recognized the value of her skill set. Suddenly he's treating humans as incompetent imbeciles? And Dante was kinda harsh with him too. He could've at least tried to talk down Virgil's more extreme goals, and concede that a drugged up, previously brainwashed populace could use a hand in building a society of their own and fighting an army of demons.
* Another one (I'm not a ravid hater, I'm just curious): there's something that left me puzzled: according to the TakeThatAudience entry, there's a moment in the game where Dante dons a white wig by mistake... and then removes it, saying "Not in a million years", which is apparently a jab at the fans obsessed with the old white-haired Dante. And yet, this Dante becomes white-haired and red-coated himself during the Devil Trigger, [[spoiler:and even permanently after the end of the game]]. So, doesn't this make the above mentioned wig-jab... dunno... odd? Like "Yeah, never gonna happe-oh, it actually did!".

** It's not sudden. Vergil isn't respectful of Kat as a ''person'' - he simply knows not to alienate someone with a useful gift, right up until it's not useful. He first found her in Limbo and helped her recover by getting her to research spells. had she been ordinary, would he have done anything to help her if he became aware of her? Her demeanour in his presence is submissive, quiet, and task-oriented, and she's bashful and a bit surprised when Dante tries to talk to her like, you know, a person. Vergil's known Kat for years, she's nothing but loyal, she adores him and trusts him completely, but once Dante's on the scene he doesn't need her any more and that's the end of whatever counted as camaraderie. Notice all the insults he takes from Dante and the lengths he'll go to in order to keep ''him'' safe, but how totally willing he is to leave Kat to die? He capitulates to keep Dante on his side, not to save Kat. Similarly, he doesn't lift a finger to help anyone in the Order while they're being massacred by enemy forces. He might view himself as benevolent, but that actually doesn't matter when he's going to appoint himself an eternal dictator. As for the end, it's Vergil who refuses to compromise, Vergil who says that if Dante won't rule with him he'll rule alone, and Dante who says "it's not too late" and that they don't need to fight. While humanity is probably in for some rough times, that the demons hid themselves in the first place indicates things are going to be ''much'' rougher for ''them'', especially considering they all just lost Bob, the Succubus and the power of the Hell Gate.

** Getting to beat the shit out of Bob Barbas? Who wouldn't take the opportunity? I'd beat the shit out of snobby, self-righteous dicks too if I had the chance, like Jack Thompson or Bill O'Reilly for example.

** If we're going for a logical answer though, it's possible that the first time (before the fight) Bob shows himself, he was just communicating with Dante. The boss fight could be Dante weakening Bob to the point where the former can shoot the latter from Limbo and into the Real World.

** Dante still loves to fight. There are better ways to handle it but why turn down an opportunity to give your opponent a fighting chance? If faced with a great opponent, Dante would rather let them ready themselves in order to get a challenge.

* At the end of the [[spoiler: Bob Barbas]] boss fight, Dante destroys [[spoiler: Barbas's]] demonic head and shoots him twice in the chest through limbo, killing him. However, at the start of the fight [[spoiler: Barbas]] drops his demonic head for a second to rant about how awful Dante and the Order are. Why didn't Dante just shoot him then?
