* In terms of gameplay, Danteís Sin Devil Trigger feels incredible to control, conveying power unlike ever before. Itís basic combo has massive range and deals devastating damage, and [[CallBack Vortex and Inferno]] from VideoGame/DevilMayCry1 have been reimplemented into the Sin Stinger and Sin Inferno respectively, with Sin Inferno shredding through a single target and Sin Inferno delivering a massive AreaOfEffect blast that stuns all demons in its range. Itís ranged attacks are [[MythologyGag The Luce and The Ombra]], the former being a [[StormOfBlades barrage of countless summoned swords that can target multiple enemies]] and the latter being a [[EnergyBall meteor of energy]] being fired from Danteís hands. His most powerful attack is [[PowerOfTheVoid Demolition]], where Dante traps an enemy in a black hole before reducing his enemy to dust. Nothing can escape it, and [[OneHitKill only bosses can survive it.]] And then thereís [[LimitBreak Judgement.]] By sacrificing all energy in the Sin Devil Trigger Gauge, Dante slows down time and focuses before unleashing a storm of slashes with Devil Sword Dante, moving so fast that after images follow his every movement before brandishing his sword in front of him and unleashing all his power at once, and there is no way to avoid this attack. If there is an enemy, it will get hit. Oh, and Dante is invulnerable for the whole duration of the attack.
* The Sin Devil Trigger demonstrates how powerful it is the moment you get control of it. Remember Urizen's crystal barrier, the one that took Nero an entire boss fight to break? On normal mode, Sin Devil Trigger Dante can break it by using his basic combo '''once!''' Even on the dreaded Dante Must Die difficulty Sin Devil Trigger will tear to ribbons everything but the most powerful enemies the game has to offer. It truly is Dante's ultimate form and the trump card to end all trump cards.

* Vergilís return is a sight to behold. After V deals the final blow to Urizen, a pillar of light erupts from them, the illusion of the Sons of Spardaís childhood home completely shattering. As the light fades, you can see someone standing as the illusion falls to pieces around him. Then, slowly, the eldest son of Sparda turns towards the camera and this message fades in; '''Vergil, The Alpha and the Omega'''.

Dante is downright furious, likely not only at Vergil's return but at himself for making the mistake of letting V be the one to finish Urizen.



* Immediately as the mission starts, a cutscene plays showing Dante and Vergil's first proper interaction in years, and Dante immediately attacks. However Vergil manages to beat him away with two hits with Yamato, one to block his sword and the other sending Dante flying back. Despite Dante being exhausted, Dante isn't completely helpless, grabbing the Yamato's scabbard as he's thrown back and sending it right back at Vergil. When they finally lock blades, Vergil simply tells Dante that [[MeaninglessVillainVictory he's too weak to be satisfying to beat,]] so he knocks Dante off his feet and leaves. Vergil is well and truly back.

* Dark moment of awesome for Urizen: He may be the only demon in ''existence'' who can defeat Dante in a straight fight. [[spoiler: Of course considering who he really is, this does make sense.]]

*** A moment of awesome for Dante too, because his second phase is far and away the most difficult boss in the game. ''As it should be.'' [[TheRedBaron The Legendary Devil Hunter]] is coming at you with everything he has and defeating him is a Herculean Task.

* Dantes's last minute arrival carries an entirely different weight with the context given by the previous two missions. Rebellion and the Sparda are no more having combined to form a new Devil Sword bearing '''his'' name and his demonic power has reached new heights with his Sin Devil Trigger. This isn't just a [[BigDamnedHeroes heroic rescue]], this is truly Dante's moment having finally stepped out of the shadow of Sparda and into his own. A new legend, one stronger than Sparda, has been born and Urizen, while still even toned, is [[TranquilFury clearly furious by this new development.]]

** Even better, for Mission 20, it starts out just like the cutscene that plays at the end of Mission 19. The two brothers prepare to finish each other off. Then it cuts to black right at the point where Nero jumps in...except he doesn't. The scene plays out. They do a classic SingleStrokeBattle scene as both of their Sin Devil Triggers end. And then you hear this to herald the start of the final battle, in a capella.

* After fans were disappointed by their lack of inclusion in the base game, both Turbo mode and [[ZergRush Legendary Dark Knight mode]] return, meaning even more chaotic battles are on the way.

* The opening cutscene of Vergil Mode shows him shortly after taking Yamato from Nero, staggering through the same underground tunnel Dante does in Mission 12 on the final approach to their childhood home. Two riots appear to block Vergil's way and in a sudden burst of energy Vergil dashes clean through them and takes time to dramatically sheathe Yamato before [[YouAreAlreadyDead blood bursts from their wounds and they flop to the ground dead]]. Even on death's doorstep himself, Vergil is still ''leagues'' above your average demon.


** With Mission 19 and 20 for Vergil, did we get another [[PaletteSwap Vante]] situation? [[spoiler:'''No'''. You get to fight Dante himself both times, the first as he isn't trying very hard. Then the final boss fight is against a Dante that brings out ''everything'', dwarfing even his battles in the fourth game as he's ready and willing to aggressively hand Vergil his ass on a silver platter and look good doing it.]]
