Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsSexy: The Queen of Hell.


Added DiffLines:

* LoveItOrHateIt: You'll either think that ''Dante's Inferno'' is a fun, entertaining game that raises interest in a classic poem with amazing graphics and epic fight scenes or absolutely despise how it takes too many elements from ''God of War''.


Added DiffLines:

* UnfortunateImplications:
** As stated above, not too many fans of the original work appreciated the decision to turn Beatrice from one of the most interesting, epic female heroes into a DamselInDistress that needs saving. Her whole character is essentially being a beautiful woman that Dante has to recue and not much else, which naturally angers a few people.
** When Lucifer is first encountered in the game, his spirit form just happens to be a bald, black shadowy figure coming on to Beatrice's white astral projection while she tries pushing him away and calling him a dark monster. This may raise a few eyebrows for some gamers.

* AdaptationDisplacement: The game is very loosely based upon the original poem and doesn't meet all of its events.



* CounterpartComparison: Well, gee. A badass Italian fighter travels through a dangerous kingdom filled with monsters to rescue his hot girlfriend from a fire-breathing demon. [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros Sound familiar?]]



* EvilIsCool: [[ZigzaggedTrope Zigzagged]] in regards to Lucifer. SatanIsALoser is very much in effect in the original ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' in which he is depicted stuck in the Icy center of Hell powerless to do anything about his torment. The Lucifer of this game on the other had is given some AdaptationalBadass and cleverness and also gives him a case of being a VillainHasAPoint, namely given that HumansAreBastards is in full effect, but even then it is also juxtaposed with him being StupidEvil.

to:

* DudeNotFunny: The Achievement/Trophy called "Bad Nanny." To unlock this, it requires the player to slaughter at least 20 or so [[WouldHurtAChild unbaptized babies]] in Hell. [[EveryoneHasStandards Even non-Christian people]] found this joke to be in poor taste.

*** The 1986 Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar film had TheHero Kenshiro's traits of MessianicArchetype emphasized [[FauxSymbolism to egregious extremes]]. 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]].

* 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.

** The choices for voice actors for Lucifer also has a bit of unintentional humor.

* 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.
