-> '''Dante''': Sorry it took so long to get back to you...

-> --> '''Dante''': Sorry it took so long to get back to you...

Added DiffLines:

* Dante kicking the shit out of the Hunter Demon, despite the fact Kat told him he couldn't defeat it.


Added DiffLines:

* Dante's "for humanity" rant taking the piss out of Mundus. And Mundus, in turn, having an equally good ShutUpKirk response. Watching the two trade banter is surprisingly interesting.


Added DiffLines:

* The nightclub that Lillith's challenge takes place in. The Devil's Got Talent show, the colors, the intense music, everything up until Dante finally fights her. [[NightmareFuel That... not so much.]]
* Dante kidnapping Lillith and threatening Mundus' child is awesome, since the player knows it's a bluff. [[spoiler: Negated ''hard'' when Vergil actually does shoot Lillith for the hell of it.]]
-> '''Dante''': Sorry it took so long to get back to you...
* Anytime Dante [[ShutUpHannibal successfully tells Vergil where to stick it]] in their conversations. Especially regarding Kat being held hostage.
* Mundus immediately after [[spoiler: Lillith and his child are killed.]] He reminds the audience that he is in charge for a reason. And after Dante mocks him about it, he makes good on bloody vengeance threats by ''nearly tearing out Dante's heart.''
* Kat holding out under torture to hide the resistance's secrets.

* Dante can make something as mundane as [[MundaneMadeAwesome getting dressed]] look badass, performing a series of mid-air acrobatics while under the attack of a 15 foot tall demon.

* Dante can make something as mundane as [[MundaneMadeAwesome getting dressed]] look badass, performing a series of mid-air acrobatics while under the attack of a 15 foot tall demon. His nonchalant "missed" afterwards serves to establish that although this Dante is different, he's still definitely a badass.


* The ending of [[spoiler:''Vergil's Downfall'']]. An army of demons approaches [[spoiler:Vergil]], ready to tear him apart. [[spoiler:Vergil, fresh from destroying the last remnants of doubt and goodness in his heart]], turns around and his eyes briefly flash red as he prepares to draw his sword. The demons are so cowed by his new terrifying power and resolve that they immediately bow before him.

* The Bob Barbas boss fight. Even fans who dislike the game praise this particular battle and for good reason.

* The Bob Barbas boss fight. Even fans who dislike the game praise this particular battle and for good reason. It's a battle against a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demonic]] [[PompousPoliticalPundit Bill O'Reilly]] [[OracularHead head]] in a cyber-realm, and at several points in the battle, he teleports Dante into news broadcasts where you have to battle his demon minions (or, as Bob calls them, "innocent citizens") while he reports on the so-called terrorist threat presented by Dante and the Order.


** Not just any DramaticThunder. The fight starts with the skies perfectly clear. The thunder clouds build from the ground up at the edge of the arena, and by the time the fight culminates, a ''snowstorm'' has occurred and has coated the ground. The cutscenes throughout the fight make it clear it was Vergil's growing power that caused it.

** The AI was reworked in the Definitive Edition, which definitely made [[spoiler: Vergil]] more difficult. And gets even crazier with the Hardcore Mode perk.

* While the game's enemies are only somewhere between competent and being punching bags, Drekavac and the Dreamrunners are by far the game's most badass adversaries outside of the bosses. They can deflect attacks, teleport, leave very little opportunity for counterattack, and can deflect all gunfire by twirling their blades. Also they dual-wield Katanas.
