* StarTrekMovieCurse: The second and the fourth games are steps down from the predecessors. The reboot broke the trend being more controversial.

* MisaimedFandom: While Vergil is sympathetic, he's still a villain, and willing to unleash a demonic invasion on a town by opening Sparda's seal if it will get him power. Some fans gloss over this.

** Devil May Cry 2 might as well be a landmine. Some think it holds up fine and just isn't as good as the rest of the franchise, others swear off its existence and events entirely. The fact that it take place at the end of the timeline doesn't help matters.
** Capcom's idea to release [[UpdatedRerelease Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition]] physically only in Japan and Asia. Some people were fine just so long as they got the game and encouraged others to import, while others demanded the physical release, especially considering [[VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry DmC Definitive Edition]] was given one. Capcom's official statement was [[http://attackofthefanboy.com/news/devil-may-cry-4-special-edition-too-complicated-to-get-a-physical-disc-release/ too complicated to get a physical release]] didn't help matters.


Added DiffLines:

* InternetBackdraft: So, after [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CdFnHw4WEAEH9Tz.jpg a picture of]] [[JohnnyYongBosch Johnny Yong Bosch]] and [[ReubenLangdon Reuben Langdon]] in motion capture gear hit the web, the internet went wild with speculation for Devil May Cry 5 possibly happening. Come May, and what came with it was the announcement of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qt4DIs4vXEw&t Devil May Cry X: The Last Judgement!]] A brand new... Pachinko machine. With original cutscenes and voice clips, indicating this was what the duo were working on. Fans were not pleased.

* FandomRivalry[=/=]CounterpartComparison: To ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden''. Two ActionGame series that came from Japan, are seen as some of the best and most popular in the history, and are the most commonly compared. Luckily, [[FriendlyFandoms there isn't much of a hatedom between the two games' fandoms]].

** ''Devil May Cry 3'': [[BigBad Arkham]], initially TheDragon to [[CainAndAbel Dante's brother Vergil]], is [[NotSoHarmlessVillain revealed as a sinister, power-hungry man]] who sacrificed his own wife to become a devil himself, as his alter ego [[MonsterClown Jester]]. Arkham manipulates everyone to lure them into a battle, resulting in Dante, Vergil and Arkham's own daughter Lady weakened enough for Arkham to step in and seize the power of Sparda for himself. Arkham has no compunction brutalizing Lady or trying to kill her. When he unlocks the power of Sparda, Arkham plans to, as he puts it, "welcome Chaos" all through the world. When Lady confronts him at the game's end, Arkham angrily demands to know what he's done wrong, declaring he [[AGodAmI wanted to be a God]] and for that he had sacrificed just "one miserable human life, that's all! [[ItsAllAboutMe Was that really so awful!?]]

* SoOkayItsAverage: ''2'' on its own merits. General consensus is that it's an okay action game, but a '''terrible''' ''Devil May Cry'' game.

** Devil May Cry 4'': [[BigBad Sanctus]], while [[VillainWithGoodPublicity appearing to be the benevolent head]] of the {{corrupt| Church}} [[CrystalDragonJesus Order of the Sword]], is in fact a vicious monster. Sanctus covets the powers of Sparda and Vergil and plans on using their swords to control the power of a giant godlike golem, the Savior. To do this he feeds Nero and Kyrie to it, and had Dante not intevened they would have both been digested alive. Sanctus is the only person to kill a human on-screen by murdering his own loyal servant Credo for daring to defend his sister Kyrie. Sanctus even [[EvilCannotComprehendGood mocks Credo for his love]] while impaling him on Yamato, claiming that the only thing that matters "is absolute power." The demons that have been killing people throughout the game have been released on Sanctus's orders. When Nero fights Sanctus, [[DirtyCoward Sanctus uses Kyrie]] as a HumanShield. Despite his [[LightIsNotGood holy trappings and grandfatherly appearance]], Sanctus was an evil monster and one of the worst villains the series had to offer.

** From the fourth game, we have Sanctus. While appearing to be the benevolent head of the Order of the Sword, behind this facade lies the mind of a vicious monster exceeding Arkham and in some ways even Mundus. Sanctus covets the powers of Sparda and Vergil and plans on using their swords to control the power of a giant godlike golem, theSavior. To do this he feeds Nero and Kyrie to it and had Dante not intevened they would have both been digested alive. Sanctus is the only person to kill a human on-screen by murdering his own loyal servant Credo. Credo's crime? Daring to defend his sister Kyrie. Sanctus even mocks Credo for his love while impaling him on Yamato claiming that the only thing that matters "is absolute power." The demons that have been killing people throughout the game have been released on Sanctus's orders. When Nero fights Sanctus, the coward uses Kyrie as a human shield. Despite his holy trappings and grandfatherly appearance, Sanctus was an evil monster and arguably the worst villain the series had to offer.
