* 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.

* 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.

* 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 [[TheDeterminator got in Dante's way]].

* EvilIsCool: [[ZigzaggedTrope Zigzagged]] in regards to Lucifer. TheDevilIsALoser 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.

** 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.]]

*** 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 Lucifer in this game.
*** In Manga/RurouniKenshin, Makoto 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 drawing up plans with them to achieve 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]].

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: In relation to the [[TheDivineComedy original Inferno]] by Dante Alighieri. Some literary scholars and feminists have taken issue with this game's portrayal of Beatrice. To quote TheOtherWiki "Columbia University Professor Teodolinda Barolini, a former president of the Dante Society of America, criticized the game for its depiction of Beatrice, declaring, 'Of all the things that are troubling, the sexualization and infantilization of Beatrice are the worst. Beatrice is the human girl who is dead and is now an agent of the divine. She is not to be saved by him, she is saving him. That’s the whole point! Here, she has become the prototypical damsel in distress. She’s this kind of bizarrely corrupted Barbie doll.'[54] Other reviews of the game include similar comments from professors regarding the characters: 'Beatrice saves Dante... not the other way around,'[55] says Professor Arielle Saiber, an Italian literature professor at Bowdoin College."

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: There is some very impressive animation during the game's cinematics.

* 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''.

* 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?]]
