* DubInducedPlotHole: Players with access to the original Japanese script have reported that a few translations for certain scenes have thrown off, obscured, or even changed their original intents.
**The scene in which Dante tells Nero to "get out of [his] way" while he charges the freshly-resurrected [[spoiler:Vergil]], [[MemeticMutation despite Nero standing nowhere near him]], was reportedly written more akin to "STAY out of my way" or "don't interfere".
**During the Mission 19 boss fight, in which Dante quips "You cut off your own son's arm for this?" and [[spoiler:Vergil]] retorts that "[his] son means nothing to [him]" despite him asking shortly after if Nero is his son, was supposed to have [[spoiler:Vergil]] asking Dante what he's talking about instead during his first line.
**After the last boss fight, as Dante and [[spoiler:Vergil]] head off to the underworld to sever and seal the Qliphoth, Nero says "Hang on, if you do that you can't come back!" Apparently, he was supposed to say something closer to "I'm coming with you".



* ShoutOut: V playing the opening for Niccolò Paganini's Caprice No. 24 for a taunt isn't just because it's a famously difficult piece, or an arbitrary choice - it's a reference to how Niccolò Paganini was rumored to be associated with the devil [[DealWithTheDevil due to his skill]] in his lifetime.

* CastAsAMask: [[spoiler:V and Vergil]] have different voice actors to disguise that they are the same person. [[spoiler:Urizen]] similarly is portrayed by a different actor, though only in Japanese; the English version opts to modify [[spoiler:Vergil]]'s voice to the point it is unrecognizable.

* RoleEndingMisdemeanor: Downplayed in a sense. When "Subhuman," composed by Cody Matthew Johnson featuring Suicide Silence, was first unveiled, it received an ice-cold reception due to many factors such as the bad audio mixing and the incomprehensible screamo vocals, but what ultimately caused this trope was the discovery that lead singer Eddie Hermida was in a emotionally and sexually abusive relationship with an underage fan. The resulting PR disaster forced Capcom to delete the song from their [=YouTube=] channel, and distance themselves from the collaboration. Ultimately, Capcom kept the song and its instrumentals, but hired Michael Barr (of Volumes fame) to redo the vocals.

* NewbieBoom: This game helped spark interest in the whole ''Devil May Cry'' franchise for the new generation of gamers, given that the last mainline entry was more than a ''decade'' ago, while the reboot often received mixed to negative fanfare. It was a common reaction for ''[=DMC5=]'' players to try the older games in order to understand the characters and lore better.

Added DiffLines:

** Granted, it's not like there was a lot of debate on the subject from ''Devil May Cry'' fans, but the late-game reveal that [[spoiler:Nero is Vergil's son (and by the same token, Dante's nephew)]] didn't exactly catch many people off-guard.

** The nickname "Uncle Dante" returns because of Dante's older appearance in this game and being a CoolUncle in general. And this is further cemented when he finally reveals to Nero about their family lineage.

** An odd example in the Japanese version. [[spoiler: Both Creator/DanSouthworth and Creator/HiroakiHirata return as Vergil. Urizen, who is Vergil's demonic half, is suitably voiced by Southworth, albiet under a heavy filter to disguise his voice, but in the Japanese version, Hirata's voice isn't used and Urizen is played by a completely different actor, Shunsuke Sakuya]]
