* HeyItsThatVoice:
** In the French dub, [[NobleDemon Phineas]] is voiced by Benoît Allemane, [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist whose voice has been passed down the Armstrong line for generations!]] He is also known as the voice of [[VideoGame/LegacyOfKain Kain.]]
** In English, Vergil is voiced by David de Lautour, who played RJ in ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury''. As such, he's the fifth actor involved with the series to have ties to the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' franchise and is the only one whose character's original incarnation was also voiced by a ''PR'' alum (Vergil was voiced by Daniel Southworth in ''[=DMC3=]'', Southworth previously portraying [[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce Eric Meyers/the Quantum Ranger]]).
*** And fittingly enough, he's the first one to come the from Disney owned-era of the show, with the voice actors involved in the original games all coming from the first Saban-era.

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Controversy broke out over Dante reportedly killing an unborn child/pregnant mother in order to proceed during the game's plot - possibly [[ButThouMust forcing the hand of the player]]. Except that does not occur in the game at any point -- it's ''Vergil'' who [[spoiler:kills an unarmed mother and her child, via sniper bullet, to Dante's obvious shock. All in a cutscene where the player is supposed to side with Dante]]. The closest that Dante gets to anything that low is fighting a gigantic demonic "baby" beast ordered into battle by its equally-demonic mother, who can turn herself inside out to release it and is definitely evil; what's more, Dante makes a point of defeating them without killing them and taking them hostage.

Except that does not occur in the game at any point -- it's ''Vergil'' who [[spoiler:kills both unarmed mother and child, via sniper bullet, to Dante's obvious shock]]. The closes that Dante gets is fighting a very much born child, but it's a gigantic demonic beast ordered into battle by its equally-demonic mother, who can turn herself inside out to release it and is definitely evil. He actually ''can't'' kill the child and has no intention of doing so, and while he does take both child and mother hostage, he's noticeably disturbed and uncomfortable.

* DuelingGames: Probably with ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance]]'' - both games in long-running Japanese franchises about white-haired, pretty, superpowered, vengeful young men with troubled pasts, stronger dark sides and acrobatic slicey-choppy skills. Both are developed by a studio and a creative director different from the traditional ones, hazily canonical, and contain fairly significant aesthetic departures. ''Revengeance'' had better sales figures, but ''[=DmC=]'' received a better critical reception (which still didn't stop it from having low sales).

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Pages of concept art have been published revealing a couple of extra levels, unused enemies (including two, the Wisp and the Imprisoner, who wound up in ''Vergil's Downful''), cut content and alternative designs. The Order was initially going to play a bigger part as a very morally dubious organisation - capturing and vivisecting live demons, for instance - and Kat's first incarnations were a lot closer to the classic series female roles: adult, sexualised to a mildly absurd degree, and using weapons concealed in a violin case. Also, blue hair.
