Late in Lucia's disc in 2, Lucia is still distraught about her real origins, but Matier reassures her that the value of their history and experience is far greater than the circumstances of Lucia's birth.
Matier: Now, go. Everything that I know, I have passed on to you. You are my daughter.
Lucia: Thank you, Mother.
Dante wiping away Lucia's tear and telling her "Devil's Never Cry." when she volunteers to go on what may be a suicide mission, wishing to die like a human. And when it seems like he goes into Hell instead of her based on a coin flip, the end reveals it was heads on both sides the whole time. Even in this game, Dante's still a really great guy.
Devil May Cry 3
"Quite frankly, at first, I didn't give a damn. But because of you, I know what's important now. I know what I need to do....Trust me! I'll make things right for you. That's what my soul is telling me to do."
Devil May Cry 4
Out Of Darkness is this in itself. The song sounds like a love letter to Sparda, considering how he's the focal figure in the Order of the Sword's belief.
Unusually for the series, Devil May Cry 4 features a genuinely, if quietly, moving relationship between the hero Nero and his lover Kyrie. Halfway through the game Kyrie is kidnapped by the Order, who intend to trap her and Nero inside their artificial god and use them as a power source. Nero's eventual rescue of Kyrie, almost completely ignoring his hated enemy to catch her instead as she falls, is perfect.
This troper's rather fond of the opening scene of the game, with Nero running through the city, fighting off a horde of demons, heading to a place that, as we find out pretty quickly, he doesn't want to be, just so his girlfriend knows that he was there watching her sing and give her a present. That's remarkably sweet for a guy like Nero.
Let's not forget.
Nero: Anything . . . to protect her.
Dante giving Nero the Yamato in DMC4's finale:
Nero: What...? I thought this meant a lot to you...?
Dante: That's the only kind of gift worth giving. I want to entrust it to you, and so I am. What you do from here is your call.
