Devil May Cry

  • Despite how Narmy it was, the scene of Dante crying over Trish's death is remembered by several as the most touching moment of the series.
  • When Trish tries to apologize to Dante for selling him out to Mundus, Dante comforts her with his motto: "Devils Never Cry."
    Trish: Dante, I... I...
    Dante: Trish, devils never cry. These tears? Tears are a gift only humans have.
    • Dante just seemed so happy that Trish was all right. She practically glomped him in the ending.

  • Even in death, Eva (Dante and Vergil's mother) still watches over her children. She's the one who restored Trish to life, and gives Dante encouragement as he faces Mundus for the last time, as her spirit lives on inside the Perfect Amulet.

Devil May Cry 2

  • Late in Lucia's disc, she 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 "Devils 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.

  • In an extra scene after the credits (by completing both campaigns), Lucia is seen in Dante's office, holding onto his coin and waiting for Dante to return. The prequel novel for 5, Before the Nightmare, shows that Lucia made repeat trips to Dante's office, hoping one day he''ll be back. Dante indeed does find a way out of hell and visits Dumary Island to reunite with Lucia. They hug and she cries in happiness.


Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening

  • Dante re-assuring Lady that he will deal with the whole mess caused by Arkham and Vergil. It's this moment where Lady is no longer hostile to him.
    Dante: "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."
    • Followed by Lady offering Dante her Kalina Ann to aid him for the rest of his journey.
      Lady: Dante! ...Please, free my father.
      Dante: I will, Lady.
  • Dante crying over Vergil's apparent suicide/death... followed by Lady realizing that Dante doesn't want to explicitly admit it, and handles it tactfully with "somewhere out there, even a devil may cry when he loses a loved one," thus naming the series. Dante even replies with as close to an admission as it gets, with a "maybe."
    • Not just that, but beforehand, it's a sign of him admitting he's a Son of Sparda. Throughout the game, he refused to acknowledge his demonic heritage as well as his dad's place in his life. Now, he's finally accepting the connection, embracing what his dad STOOD FOR even though he was a devil himself.

Devil May Cry: The Animated Series

  • Plenty of moments, from Dante dealing with/caring for Patty and the scenes between him and Lady and Trish. Probably the most heartwarming was the very end where Dante comes out alive after his battle with Abigail and everyone is just overjoyed.
