How Dante joined the Tourney

Dante is the main protagonist in the Devil May Cry series. He is the second son of Sparda and Eva, and the younger twin brother of Vergil. As such, he is a half-demon/half-human hybrid. Dante is a mercenary dedicated to exterminating demons, a mission he follows in pursuit of those that killed his mother and corrupted his brother.

On his way to the Second Tourney, Dante was ambushed by a group of wolf demons. Preparing to go down fighting, he suddenly rescued by a Chinese masked girl with a fan named Mian.

Special Moves

Drive (Neutral)

Slashes a powerful wave from the ground. Can be delayed. Both the wave and the sword slash do independant damage.

Multi-Lock/Acid Rain (Side)

Fire a shot from Artemis that stalks the opponent, applying pressure. A rather slow move. Can be charged for more shots. Dante can even walk around while charging, and the charge can be cancelled with any move. If one presses B before the attack animation, it becomes Acid Rain, where Dante fires the Artemis upward to send the bullets into the sky and they scatter to rain downward afterward.

Sky Dance (Up)

Wildly slashes with Agni & Rudra in midair, then drops to the ground with a falling flipping slash.

Jet-Stream (Down)

Runs forward while executing alternating slashes using Agni & Rudra. Pressing A after follows with Fireworks; Flails his shotgun, the Coyote-A, around like a pair of nunchaku as he fires away. Pressing B after Jet-Stream executes Dance Macabre; A rapid amount of four slashes with Rebellion. Pressing B after Dance Macabre follows with Crazy Dance; Dante sticks Rebellion in the ground, grabs the hilt of his sword and does a spinning pole kick with it, then ends with a wide slash.

Devil Trigger (Hyper Smash)

Based on his Level 1 Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Hyper Combo. With a roar, Dante takes a demonic form. The Devil Trigger lasts for 25 seconds. While transformed, Dante's strength increases by 15% and he regains health.

He also gains new attacks.

B in midair: Thunder Bolt: Fires an electric beam while in midair/mid-flight downward-diagonally

B Side in midair: Vortex: Dashes forward while covered in electricity in midair/mid-flight

B Up in midair: Flies using Nevan.

Devil Must Die (Final Smash)

Based on his Level 3 Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Hyper Combo. Dante readies his sword saying "You're finished!" and charges on his foe with Stinger, then repeats the move 3 times until he announces "Here's the finale!" nails the final Stinger, piercing his opponent and sending them into devastating red ring of demonic magical energy. He then finishes by saying "And that's how you do it."
