** Plus, it's VERGIL. Someone whose entire worldview revolves around himself. He may never have even considered the possibility of having a son, and so just wrote it off.


It's firmly established that Red Grave is a British city. Shouldn't the invasion there have been handled [[MilitariesAreUseless (and I use the term loosely)]] by the British Army?

Added DiffLines:

** In Visions of V, Griffon points out that Nero had to be either Dante or his child. V brushes it off, saying there's no point finding out because the Sparda's bloodline is cursed to fight one-another like him and Dante.

* To be fair it is only established that it is a British ''Inspired'' city, we are never actually told where in the world it is, and Devil May Crys' world has many divergences from ours, and remember this a game made by a Japanese company, it could be a military case of YouALLLookFamiliar. in general most of the locations in the series tend to look very British, maybe in this timeline the American Revolution never happened and America stayed a British colony?

** Also, V is the manifestation of Vergil's humanity. He may look that young because that was about when Vergil sealed away his own humanity and embraced his demon side. The body aged, but his humanity was stunted, sealed away in favor of his demon side (consider that V looks to be roughly the age that Dante and Vergil were around the time of DMC3, when Vergil became Nelo Angelo)

Added DiffLines:

* Having watched those scenes a few times Nero never actually expresses an interest in killing Vergil, everyone else just assumes that since he hated Urizen that he also hates Vergil. Instead he seems to just be having difficulty processing that Vergil is his father, Dante is his uncle and he has a family for the first time in his life.


Added DiffLines:

** Why kill something he thought was worthless and irrelevant?


Added DiffLines:

** He likely assumed Nero was Dante's son.

* Vergil may not be the absolute smartest guy around, but he's still a pretty smart cookie. He sees Nero, a young human-demon hybrid with white hair, demon powers, a magical sword, and a connection with his own brother Dante, all while being aware of the apparent single time he ever had sex with a human woman 20-something years ago, and yet he doesn't put the pieces together that Nero is his son until Dante tells him?

* Urizen obviously held no love for humanity, so why didn't he turn around kill V?

Added DiffLines:

*** Also, he saw what being a pure demon would do. It wasn't just power, but the loss of self. He no longer was Vergil, but rather Urizen. He lost himself, lost his goals and intent, etc



to:

* Also, the military has NO connection to the supernatural. Lady is related to both Arkham and Kalina Ann, so she has some degree of ties to the supernatural. She may subconsciously empower her weapons

Added DiffLines:

** There's also the fact that Vergil has finally seen just what kind of power forsaking his humanity would ultimately grant him through Urizen's actions, and it was not enough, in fact, it made him weaker.



to:

* Human weaponry such as guns are shown not to be all that effective against demons, an example being how the Blue Rose was designed to fire two bullets, one to break through the defences of the demon and the second to deal the actual damage, and Lady mainly uses the Kalina Ann when in battle, which even the lowest of demons are able to take a few missiles from. It should also be noted that these military forces have never faced off against demons while Lady has been doing it for decades, and her style is very different from what we she from the soldiers in Mission 1. Watching this ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySvOFQjvi9s cutscene]]'', we can see that Lady is continuously moving, acting quickly and manoeuvring around the demons, being aware of every demon around her and keeping herself out of their range while a wipe variety of weapons as the situation changes. Meanwhile ''[[https://youtu.be/NEuzdhEeWd8 the soldiers]]'' use standard military tactics that leaves them open for even the Empusa's to overwhelm them. It should also be noted that demons are more dangerous than how the player interacts with them. An Empusa may fall after being shot enough, but if a Green Empusa is around the dozens of bullets used by the soldiers would be completely wasted. Pyrobats might be frail, but they fly quickly and are relatively small targets. Baphomets and Lusachias can create barriers that block bullets, Death Scissors can phase through walls, not to mention demons like the Fury or Hell Judecca who have the ability to teleport. The existence of the Infestants, which are the reason the infamous Infested Chopper exists, would be able to turn humanities weapons against them if they were in the game.
* As for human power, it seems to be in relation to other powers, like a demon with humanity is more powerful than a human, the ability to care and love others. While Urizen got all of Vergil's power and V was created for the sole purpose of dying, even after eating the Qliphoth fruit Dante still far surpassed him, with Vergil only managing to match Dante after Urizen merged with V, who had been able to rediscover his humanity.

We know that humans can kill demons as shown by Lady and Beryl so why is MilitariesAreUseless in such strong effect? Hell, these games keep going on about some hidden power that humans are supposed to possess that demons don't have.
