* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6soHrMUyFv8 'Space Ocean']] from ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'' was likely sampled from or at least was the inspiration for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-AAu0Osxms 'Fate']]

** This is made even more jarring if one considers Dante's appearance as a SecretCharacter in the [=PS2=] version of ''ViewtifulJoe''. Although it came out a year after ''2'' (where he was voiced by Matthew Kaminsky), Dante's voice actor is the same as the original game (Drew Coombs). In other words, it went from Drew Coombs, to Matthew Kaminsky, ''back'' to Drew Coombs, and then finally to Creator/ReubenLangdon, who has been voicing Dante ever since ''3''.

** ''[=DMC1=]''
*** ''[[Franchise/ResidentEvil Resident Devil]]'' - Due to it being a left over from a version of [=RE4=] that was never developed, and being so close to its spiritual predecessor. A lot of fans called the first game this early on.

* ApprovalOfGod: Sorta kinda. While Kamiya primarily identifies with the first game (the only one he actually worked on), it's worth noting that he, apparently, use 4 as research material for ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}''.

* FountainOfExpies: Ironically Dante's gotten several expies over the years:
** [[Videogame/{{Gungrave}} Brandon "Beyond the Grave" Heat]] is more a [[SilentProtagonist silent]] variation minus the {{BFS}} and more emphasis on shooting.
** [[Videogame/GodHand Gene]]. He also doubles as an expy to [[Manga/FistoftheNorthStar Kenshiro]]. Capcom would later take notes and base Nero partially off the former.
** [[VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} Bayonetta and Jeanne]] are both GenderFlip examples. The two ladies are snarkers that both fight with swords and guns, taunt their enemies, and the latter even has white hair and dresses in red. The only differences is that they are witches that fight angels. [[note]] They fight demons in the sequel.[[/note]]
** [[VideoGame/{{Onechanbara}} Kagura]] is another gender flip example that is very {{Stripperific}} and arguably an expy of the ''[=DMC3=]'' incarnation. A HalfHumanHybrid ({{Dhampyr}} in this case) that's young, snarky, taunts, and likes to show off. It fits the bill.
** [[VideoGame/TheWonderful101 Wonder Blue]], Dante in SuperSentai form.

*** ''Manga/{{Bleach}} May Cry'' - The game, for having the same [[HeyItsThatVoice English voice actors]] and DamselInDistress plot.

to:

*** ''Manga/{{Bleach}} May Cry'' - The game, for having the same [[HeyItsThatVoice [[RelationshipVoiceActor English voice actors]] and DamselInDistress plot.



* HeyItsThatVoice: Trish in the first game, was voiced by [[Creator/SaraLafleur Sarah Lafleur]]. Western fans of ''Manga/SailorMoon'' might recognize her as Sailor Uranus.
** Lady is voiced by Creator/KariWahlgren in ''3'' and ''4'', Melissa Davis ([[VisualNovel/{{Kanon}} Mai Kawasumi]], [[Anime/PaniPoniDash Kurumi Momose]]) in the anime.
** Nero is voiced by Creator/JohnnyYongBosch, [[InkSuitActor who also did the motion capture for the character]].
*** RelationshipVoiceActor: And Kyrie is voiced by Creator/StephanieSheh.
*** When coupled with the plethora of [[{{Expy}} similar character traits]], this led to the {{Fan Nickname}}s of Ichigo (Nero), Bankai (his Devil Trigger), Getsuga Tenshou (the shockwaves emitted upon DT-ing), Orihime (Kyrie), and ''Manga/{{Bleach}} May Cry'' (the game itself, as noted above).
** Vergil is voiced and mocapped by Daniel Southworth in ''3'', better known as the [[SixthRanger Quantum Ranger]] from ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBrdDjmQVdI Quantum Power!]]
** Wait a sec... Mundus (Tony Daniels) is [[WesternAnimation/XMen Gambit's]] [[TheOtherDarrin second VA]]? And [[Manga/SailorMoon Wiseman and Jedite]]?! Considering [[EldritchAbomination the second]], it's ''very'' fitting.
** It's Credo[[note]]T.J. Rotolo[[/note]], [[VideoGame/DeadRising he's covered wars, ya know.]]
** Baal and Dagon are voiced by Creator/KyleHebert.
** Echidna is voiced by Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn, who previously voiced Nevan in ''3''. She also is the voice you hear announcing "Devil May Cry" at the title screen of ''4''.
** Sanctus is [[Creator/LiamOBrien Liam O'Brien]]. You can hear faint traces of [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Gaara]].
** Kyrie is Creator/StephanieSheh. [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Déjà vu]], [[{{Expy}} right?]]
