* HilariousInHindsight: In a meta way. This HackAndSlash game is an obvious clone of ''VideoGame/{{God of War|Series}}'', a Sony-owned series that was created [[DuelingGames to compete against]] (and partly inspired by) the ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' series... which was in turn inspired by Dante Alighieri's ''Literature/TheDivineComedy''. So it now seems things have gone full circle.

John VIckery, who voiced Kenshiro in the English language dub of the film, now ironically provides the voice of {{Satan}} in this game. *** In Manga/RurouniKenshin, Shishio, voiced by Creator/SteveBlum in the American English dub by Creator/MediaBlasters, occasionally compares himself to being a demon (granted he [[NecessarilyEvil believes that he is right]]) and expects to go to Hell when he dies and, [[spoiler: following his death via internal combustion, is shown along with Yumi and Houji in the underworld with the ambition of taking it over]]. Later in 2010, Blum would provide the voice of {{Satan}} himself in VideoGame/DantesInferno: [[AnimatedAdaptation An Animated Epic]] [[spoiler: who in turn has an ambitious goal of his own in ruling all three realms (Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven) of the afterlife]].

* RonTheDeathEater: The Historical [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alighiero_di_Bellincione Alighero di Bellincione]] gets this treatment from some people who are too lazy to do any research on the real person and foolishly assume the fictional Alighero in the game is an accurate representation when [[{{Expy}} he isn't him]].

** The Hoarder/Waster. They don't do much damage, but they have an annoying spin attack that lasts a whole lot of time, knocks you over and potentially keeps doing it if it hits you again and it's completely immune. It may not be a big deal when you have only that enemy, but having many enemies at the same time can make it incredibly annoying.

** On that note, the game's version of Dante grew up believing that his mother died of the fever [[spoiler: when in actuality, [[DrivenToSuicide her husband's abuse pushed her to hang herself.]] Even through the mid 20th century, it wasn't unusual for relatives/loved ones of suicide victims to cover up the suicide so the dead could receive a burial in hallowed ground and thus have a chance at salvation.]]

* DudeNotFunny: This game is one of the reasons EA is well known for [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity intentionally controversial marketing ploys.]] Aside from the "Sin to Win" contest that required entrants to harass booth babes, there's also the fake protestors they hired to picket in front of EA headquarters. Neither are very well regarded nowadays.

*AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Does Dante really regret the sins of his past or is he just merely seeking a way to escape being punished for them.

* DesignatedVillain: The first three bosses. Death is... well, [[TheGrimReaper Death]], Charon is just there to move souls, and King Minos only sorts the souls into the proper circles. Not terribly glaring, though; no one likes Death when he visits, the other two "work" for Hell regardless, and all three [[KnightTemplar got in Dante's way]].
