The 8th mission of DMC 3 has the Heart of Leviathan boss, which has armor plating protecting its core. Nightmare has the same exact armor and has a core. Leviathan's body is described as a gateway to hell, and Nightmare has the power to send Dante to a hellish place. Both bosses can also summon demons to fight for them and fire lasers. Finally there's the plotholes: Where did Nightmare come from and if Leviathan was released, why wasn't Behemoth released also? Possibly because Sparda already killed Behemoth but not his heart. [[ItMakesSenseInContext (Which escaped.)]] In the in-game boss descriptions, Heart of Leviathan is said that it "should be considered its own entity, one that will protect itself at all costs." This implies that the hearts have their own consciousness and can possibly survive without their hosts. This would also explain why Nightmare is such a strange and unsightly boss: He's not meant to be a wandering blob but the heart of a gargantuan monster.

** Clearly, he's the Sparda figure. (Agnus is just Arkham/Jester.) He can do everything, but better. He's always going on ahead. He eventually grants Nero Yamato and then departs into the unknown. Obviously, this is Vergil's skewed perception of Sparda - an amazingly powerful warrior, who is full of mystery and ultimately favors Dante. Bonus points for being the first to "fight" Sanctus/Mundus and accepting Credo/Vergil's last request (Vergil's feeling that Sparda is the only one who can be relied on?).
** OR Vergil is LITERALLY fractured, in that the remains of his persona Nelo Angelo were harvested to create the knight enemies in DMC4. It's in their in-game enemy files.

In a few spots throught the temen-ni-gru, we see images, carvings and reliefs of Jester, which should be impossible if he is Arkham and has only been in the tower as lomg as the other characters. Also, even for a demonically powered human, both Arkham and Jester pull some impressive demonic feats, and have increible knowledge of the tower, at least to me more than one book could possibly give him and even refers to himself as "We" in the sacrificial chamber. My theory: Jester posessed Arkham's body, granting him power and knowledge of the tower, which he himself inhabited long before the games proper.

[[WMG:Nero's Devil-Bringer is actually..]]

The idea is that Mundus did it (obviously), but that he corrupted Arkham enough to have such knowledge, and was using him as a consort/liaison to keep in touch with the human world and extend his corruption to Vergil who would actively undo the seals in the Temen-Ni-Gru, freeing the demons bound to the tower. The seal to Sparda's power could only be undone in the human world, but if Vergil gets to the power successfully, that by itself presents another problem. That, and if Arkham was genuinely trying to become a god without Mundus' influence, that be one big slap to the face in his plans of revenge and regaining his spot as Prince of Darkness or whatever. So, as Mundus' ally, Arkham would steal Vergil's chance at power, grab it for himself or make it easier to access for Mundus (who would probably kill him anyway and take the credit. Power is everything!)

** Or, more specificially, Sparda sealed Temen ni Gru and any other portals Mundus had built in order to invade, and then spent two thousand years destroying or sealing any new portals that demons tried to built.

* To help clear the confusion... The original spelling of the (Latin) name was Vergilius, as in the poet. However, the alternate spelling Virgil began in his lifetime, as a pun - "virgil" refers to a magic wand. Vergil was not promiscuous - unlike a whole lot of Roman men - and so he was famous for "magically" keeping his "wand" under control!

* There's always the chance that he's Vergil reincarnated or something. This troper always found a few things about him rather suspicious- his strong connection to the Yamato, his "Give me more power" quote after receiving it (rather similar to Vergil's frequent statements about constantly desiring more power), the similarities between his Devil Shadow and Vergil's demon forms (particularly the sheath attached to his arm and the face that resembles the Nelo Angelo)- all combine to indicate that Nero might be what was left over after the Nelo Angelo went asplode. You know, despite the fact that Capcom flatly denies that Vergil had any connection to [=DMC 4=].

* The first game's introduction clearly states he "quietly reigned over the human world '''until his death'''", and nearly ''everyone'' acknowledges he's either missing or dead, because let's face it-- Where else would he be?
* As part of this, he will show up in the final DMC shortly after dante tries to kill himself, while Nero and Lady are getting married, while Patty makes her first friend outside the sho-wait a minute, thats Metal Gear Solid 4's ending only with DMC characters...

* Twist on that theory. Dante never answers Agnus' question of what humans actually have, but Nero answered it with his statement to Sanctus. "Sparda had a heart. One that could love another person." They don't get CharlesAtlasSuperPower in the traditional sense, but the human heart can invoke insane {{Determinator}} or BerserkButton powers when it gets down to it. Also take into account the "humans have firepower and technological advances" argument (since it would be weird if everyone became The Hulk when their loved ones are threatened)
* Of course, Lady may not be a normal human. She has eyes just like [[spoiler:Arkham]], can fight despite pretty serious wounds, and is a descendant of the priestess, who was probably pretty powerful, and if we're arguing that Sparda could have had other descendants, the priestess is a likely candidate. Not to mention that ''Franchise/DevilMayCry 2'' establishes that yes, there are other half-demons running around doing heroic stuff: anyone want to bet that a lot of them would move to the Order's city, where they'd be seen as holy instead of unholy? They might not have though Nero [[spoiler:having demonic power]] was unusual because it wasn't. And that's without bringing what the novels establish about what humans can and can't do into it (since the second novel has Beryl going places that probably should have killed her according to the first's rules about humanity's vulnerability to demonic power).

*** Not even. Sparda is pretty much a natural immortal, yes? What's to say he didn't pass some of that on to his kids? Lady looks a HELL of a lot older in [=DMC 4=] than she did in 3, not to mention that she and Dante aren't an item (Dante may have opted to not go through the heartbreak from watching his girl age and die; they seem pretty attracted to each other in 3) and she's had SERIOUS macular degeneration in the intervening years--look at those coke bottle glasses.

This came to [[Tropers/X2X me]] in bits and pieces after playing both ''Devil May Cry 2'' and ''ViewtifulJoe''. For Dante's [[CanonDiscontinuity noncanon]], [[SecretCharacter guest]] appearance in the latter, Trish asks if Enzo "stole [Dante's] clothes again." This seemingly implies that Dante's major change of character in the game was due to Enzo impersonating him (and as such could be a LampshadeHanging on why ''Viewtiful Joe'' [[TheOtherDarrin brought back Dante's DMC 1 voice actor]] (despite the fact that the [=PS2=] version of ''Viewtiful Joe'' came out a year after ''2''). Obviously, this half-baked explanation could only be taken with a grain of salt.

According to Mundus in ''ViewtifulJoe'', which was made by the creator of ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'', [[SoulJar Eva's soul is present in the amulet]] and was responsible for resurrecting not just Trish but Dante as a child. Yamato is also Vergil's devil arm when it was Sparda's sword first, meaning there's precedent for a pre-existing artifact (the amulet was used to seal the tower) becoming someone's devil arm. There's also the effect the amulet has on Force Edge (growing larger, red and throbbing...) Eva's soul clearly has magical power (since the amulet's origin wouldn't give it any ressurrection abilities), and so far in the series there's no magic that's been confirmed not to be demonic in origin. Eva being a human in life but becoming at least somewhat demonic to save her children and watch over them in death would fit with the themes of the series.

Dante has already been to Hell and back (no pun intended); his mother was killed (by demons that were believed to have been sent by Mundus) when Dante was only a young child, causing Dante and Vergil to become erstwhile twins (Dante becoming a HunterOfHisOwnKind so that he could hit the Jackpot and bring justice to whoever killed his mom, Vergil trying to gain power [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation so that he would never have to suffer like that again]]). While Vergil apparently idolized Sparda to some degree, Dante's OedipusComplex had grown to such immense levels that he flat-out denied the existence of his dad during his first fight with Vergil in ''Devil May Cry 3''. It doesn't help that Dante was drawn to Trish almost ''solely'' [[FreudWasRight because of her resemblance to Eva]] (and the endgame cutscenes came ''this'' close to making me believe that he and Trish were going to become the OfficialCouple). While Lady seems to be [[BelligerentSexualTension a bit less drawn to Dante]], the subtext is still there (the first three games each set up the leading lady as a possible love interest for Dante; plus, the breathing space between Dante and Lady after their fight was a bit too close for comfort). At the very least, the relationship between Dante and his ladyfriends is a very strong platonic bond. Dante had already believed Vergil to be dead after ''3'' and cried for him although he had previously lived by the mantra of "Devils never cry." Then, when Nelo Angelo died, Dante realized that his brother, the ''only'' remaining family he had in the world (excluding Trish, a clone of his mom, and Nero, his nephew who he didn't even know existed until ''Devil May Cry 4'' and is still completely unaware of their ''full'' relationship), had been KilledOffForReal. The trauma of losing a sibling must have been hard to take, but Dante probably surmounted this due to the close ties he had with Trish and Lady.

* So, the Sparda sword's true power is awakened if the amulet (Eva) and the blade (Sparda's power) become one?... [[FreudWasRight Good grief]]... Back on track, this theory may be moot, seeing as Hideki Kamiya is no longer with Capcom, so his WordOfGod (such as VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} being able to wipe the floor with Dante, or Eva's backstory as a witch, or the above WMG) won't necessarily be the ''true'' WordOfGod for the series.

...Nelo Angelo's arm. Agnus mentioned that the Order of the Sword had studied a powerful demon-arm and that was the source of their powers. Somehow Sanctus and his followers salvaged Yamato and fragments of Nelo Angelo (Vergil) from the remains of Mallet Island and used them to build their power, but then Sanctus comes up with a back-up plan as construction of their ''Saviour'' nears completion. What if they can't get Dante to form the Saviour's core? They'll need a back-up, so Sanctus selects a young and expendable member of the order for an experiment. If it fails, no one of importance was lost. If it suceeds, the new Sparda-hybrid should be easy enough to manipulate. And so, after Nero is severely injured Sanctus has his arm amputated and the arm of Nelo Angelo grafted in it's place, blaming it's demonic appearance on side-effects of his demon attack. Sanctus just didn't anticipate how {{Badass}} Nero would become with the power of a son of Sparda now his to control.

[[WMG: Nero is an Umbran Witch.]]
As a Tweet from Kamiya reveals, it seems like men can become Umbran Witches and females can serve as Lumen Sages. This, combined with how Nero's Devil Trigger and Devil Bringer manifests almost exactly like Umbran Climax and Wicked Weaves, seems to give the impression that Nero had managed to become an Umbran Witch. The only two questions left to be answered is "who is his Contract Demon" and "why can't he make use of Witch Time"? The first answer is basically [[spoiler: Vergil, or at least whatever is left of him. Notice how Nero's Devil Trigger looks almost entirely like Vergil when he was Nelo Angelo.]]. The second question isn't spoilery to answer: Nero doesn't have an Umbran Watch, which seems to give most Umbran witches their ability to manipulate time, hence why he doesn't have the capability to.

Think about the similarities. From Blade, he gets the job of hunting evil supernatural creatures, fact that half of his biology is made up of the creature he hunts (Dante is half-demon because his father was a demon and Blade is half-vampire because his mother was bitten by a vampire immediately before giving birth to him.) and that he wears a BadassLongcoat also comes from Blade. From Deadpool, he gets his wise-cracks, his mercenary occupation, and his red costume. But he also inherits a few attributes that the both of them share: mastery of swords and guns, [[HealingFactor regenerative abilities]], and the fact that he finishes off his foes in a really stylish and cool way. The reason that he is an alternate universe combination of these two is because of Capcom's crossover with Marvel around the year 2000 (''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2''), affected the Capcom world. Although these two characters were not included in the game, Blade was gaining massive popularity due to his new fims and Deadpool's new ongoing series really made the character a hit. The popularity of these two somehow leaked into the Capcom world and influenced the creation of Dante which happened a year or two after, making many things about him similar to these characters. Years later, Dante finally made it into a CapcomVsWhatever game where the company was reunited with Marvel, and his main rival is Deadpool. The reason for this is that where Blade slipped down the ranking and has become a B-list character recently, Deadpool has continued to gain support and has become the face of Marvel (sorta). Now, his connection to Deadpool is stronger than his to Blade.
