Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsCool: Mundus has been considered one of the most badass characters in the game, but the character that really takes it home is his bodyguard Drekavac. A mask-wearing badass demon dual-wielding katanas was an instant hit, and the fact he's [[SilentAntagonist wordless]] only adds to his mysterious awesomeness.
* EvilIsSexy: [[spoiler: Vergil looks a lot like his MrFanservice brother, and that attractiveness bleeds over even when he turns villainous, even if he's [[TheScrappy generally considered pathetic.]]]]


Added DiffLines:

** Vergil's [[spoiler: attempt at a WhamLine comes off as being painfully obvious and unnecessary. Many found that Dante's response completely undercuts it as well.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CrazyAwesome: Dante is this in a vastly different way from the original. He is foul-mouthed, arrogant, violent, brash, and rude. And yet, he's still a massive badass, not despite, but because he's so over-the-top.

** No dedicated lock-on button on the [=PS3=], 360, and PC.
** The lack of a taunt button.

* DesignatedHero:
** Both Dante and Vergil are questionable freedom fighters. Dante can come off as a brash Jerkass for mocking Mundus [[spoiler:when he's mourning the death of his son]] and is more interested in killing demons than helping humans. Vergil [[FantasticRacism views humans as lesser beings]], doesn't care about Kat's well-being, and [[spoiler:tried to enslave humanity just like Mundus]].
** While Mundus is [[CardCarryingVillain an unmistakably evil asshole]] who could not care less about humanity except as livestock, and whose few redeeming qualities are out of [[PragmaticVillainy pragmatism]] rather than [[EvenEvilHasStandards having any standards]], the anarchy that Dante is fighting for, [[WordOfGod according to Tameem Antoniades]], is not a viable alternative.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: The Definitive Edition re-release, which removes a lot of the {{Scrappy Mechanic}}s that made the game derided among longtime ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' fans and changes the playstyle to be a lot more like previous games, as well as new alternate skins for Dante, including his [=DMC1=] design.

** The reverse happened with the ''Vergil's Downfall'' DLC; old-school fans liked it more than the main game for being closer to the franchise's roots in terms of difficulty and gameplay, but some critics bashed it for those same reasons, which just goes to show how different the tastes of these two groups are and how polarizing the game is.

* ItsEasySoItSucks: A major criticism of the change in gameplay, especially with the ease in which a SSS rank can be achieved, air combos making most enemies completely helpless (with none of the skill or effort required to achieve this in older entries), and the boss fights requiring less skill and strategy than in the previous entries.

It doesn't help that the hard difficulty isn't nearly the difficulty you expect from the hard mode of a ''Devil May Cry'' game.

** Also for Poison being rude at Dante.
-->'''Poison''': You disgusting fuck-child! I'm going to pull off your arms, piss down your neck and shit on your worthless carcass!

** The Lock-On, Devil Trigger, and Style System, among other general gameplay changes, would then go on to be fixed in the Definitive Edition, along with a complete rebalance of the game via Hardcore Mode. This was done to encourage sales of the game among the older fans who they insulted durimg this game's promotion.
