* FreudWasRight: The ''entire theme'' of Trish (specifically, the implication was that Mundus was using her as a HoneyTrap for Dante in the first game), but subverted. As said in OedipusComplex under Dante's entry in the characters sheet, it doesn't work on Dante -- he's visibly disturbed by her appearance.

%% Awesome Moment Of Crowing is not YMMV



* EscapistCharacter: A witty, snarky, {{Badass}} Half-Demon HunterOfHisOwnKind who does all kinds of ridiculous over-the-top stylish stunts in both gameplay and cutscenes and runs his own kickass Demon Hunting business. Who wouldn't want to be as cool as him?

* WhatAnIdiot: Trish. [[spoiler:Taking a powerful sword capable of subduing the Prince of Darkness and handing it to a CorruptChurch is NOT a good idea.]] It may not necessarily be idiotic and possibly done because [[ItAmusedMe it amused her]]. Judging from the way she and Dante act throughout the course of the game, it was a stunt she pulled without his permission because it was fun. Considering that Dante is a OneManArmy {{Badass}} and will curbstomp the bad guys anyway, any entertainment is welcome. Yet Dante was right to respond to that by saying things will get messy: [[spoiler:we see human casualties in Fortuna City as a result of the villain having the necessaries to bring the Savior out, opting Agnus to release demons. It can be thought of, however, that by gaining the trust of the Order, Trish was able to ascertain that they were evil far quicker than if they investigated by normal means, which may have possibly lead to them becoming too powerful thanks to the progress of Agnus' research by the time they knew for sure, resulting in more deaths.]]

** Kamiya's original vision was that Vergil had been [[TheWoobie kidnapped as a child]] (when Dante lost a mother and brother to evil twenty years ago), and was never anything but a [[MoreThanMindControl good guy]] who managed to break loose to help his brother. The author of the first novel decided to ignore that, and wrote Vergil as an [[MagnificentBastard evil]] {{badass}} who was around during Dante's teens. One of these Vergils was obviously much cooler than the other, and ''[=DMC3=]'' made the novel's version of the character canon.

** [[IntendedAudienceReaction More than likely the intended reaction]], and a temporary one at that, what with the [[spoiler:HeelRealization and HeroicSacrifice]] that followed soon after. Aside of her debated FauxActionGirl credentials and some controversy about [[spoiler:being the catalyst of ''4''[='s=] plot by handing Sparda over to the Order of the Sword]], judging by the general warm welcome she received by ''DMC'' fans for ({{unexpected|Character}}ly) joining the ''[=MvC3=]'' roster, most of the hate delivered at Trish seems to have long-since subsided (unless we're talking about shipping, which is an entirely different can of worms).

* EvenBetterSequel: Though they had to WinBackTheCrowd from the lackluster ''Devil May Cry 2'' as well, ''3'' is typically considered the series' finest hour as it introduced a full RealTimeWeaponChange system (something that was played with in ''2'') and made the combo gameplay much deeper than the original game's (in part due to the ability to change weapons but also the complexity of the combat itself with additions like the Style system). ''4'' may have even been able to surpass it (thanks to Nero's completely fresh approach with the Devil Bringer and Dante gaining the ability to shift between Styles during gameplay) but the poor job done with Dante's part kept it from achieving its potential.

** White haired half-demon who fights demons using a sword he inherited from his legendary demon father. His brother, similarly white haired and wielding a sword inherited from their father, who fell in love with a human woman before his death. Did we just describe Dante or ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}''?

** Nell in the first novel is extremely similar to Eva. [[spoiler:She's so similar that Vergil uses her to recreate Eva's sacrifice and trigger Dante's memories.]] Then, the second novel featured a redhead human hunter with a big gun working with Dante to stop an evil businessman who wanted the power of a god, specifically Sparda. Then, ''2'' (which came later), had a redhead hunter working with Dante to stop an evil businessman who wanted the power of a god, and ''3'' had a human hunter with a big gun working with Dante to stop an evil man who wanted the power of Sparda.
