Heartwarming / DmC: Devil May Cry

Go To

  • The way Dante acts after regaining his memories and brother in the mansion. Suddenly, this hedonistic punk sounds very young. You begin to realize just how much going through such a shitty life without remembering how you even got there was weighing him down.
  • How Dante develops throughout the story, going from a dick, to a really likable guy. Vergil puts it best during Mission 16:
    Vergil: You really do care about her, about all this. You once said you didn't give a shit.
    • His very caring nature comes into play when Kat is involved:
    Dante: Listen, I never asked for your help, but you gave it, and I appreciate it. I trust you, you can trust me too.

    • Another moment showing how Dante matures throughout the game:
    Kat: You're gonna stick with us to the end, right?
    Dante: Count on it.
  • Dante's argument against Vergil about ruling humanity:
    Vergil: Humans are frail, they're like children, they need our protection. Not just from others, but from themselves! We - you and I - have saved them.
    Dante: You and I have saved them?
    Vergil: Who else?
    Dante: A human.
    Vergil: Kat was useful but -
    Kat: Useful?
    Dante: Kat saved my life, Kat held out under torture to keep your existence a secret! Kat led us through the tower to Mundus' lair. We would've failed twenty times over if it wasn't for her!

  • Kat begging Dante to spare Vergil's life, in spite of his ambitions and cold treatment towards her. Dante even looks somewhat relieved afterward.
  • Kat: I know who you are. You are Dante. Nothing more, and nothing less.
  • Dante carefully and patiently lending Kat an arm to help her walk to where they can better see the aftermath of the battle. His obvious protectiveness and affection is nearly a complete reversal from how dismissive and harsh he originally was with her, and how comfortable she is with accepting his help really speaks to her trust in him.
  • Basically, just every moment in Mission 20.
