"And it grew both day and night, till it bore an apple bright."


Morrison: We've known each other a long time. Ya never had this much trouble. You gonna make it through this, Dante?




Nero: What am I doin', wasting my time here? He's got this.


V: You should not underestimate this demon. After all, it was he who took your right arm... and gained a great deal of power from it. I'm leaving. I suggest you do not fall behind.


Nero: Yeah... Okay, V... You're an interesting guy, but you're right. I've got a score to settle with that son of a bitch.




Nero: Hey! Thought you took off?


V: Do you not understand? We cannot hope to do this without you.


Griffon: That's all right, superstar, go on with your bad self. Go ahead, we got this.




Nero: Looks like this won't be a total waste of time after all. Hey, jackass! Didn't your mother ever teach you it's not nice to steal? Sorry, Dante... I'm baggin' this bitch!




Griffon: This is it, this is the end! It's all over!


Dante: Round two!


Dante: V, get Nero out of here! this was a bad move!


Nero: I can still fight!


Dante: Nero, go! You're just dead weight.


Nero: Back off!


V: Come on!


Nero: Let go!


V: We must leave here. He is far stronger than we ever could have imagined.


Nero: That bastard called me dead weight! I didn't come all this way for nothing!


V: Stop hitting yourself, and think of ways to get stronger and actually help. If Dante loses... you are all that can defeat Urizen.


Nero: Is that what you call him?


V: Yes, Urizen, the demon king... That's the name of the demon that took your arm.




Morrison: What happened to Dante? Where's Dante?


V: He's buying time, but... It doesn't look good.


Morrison: This can't be happening... Dante lost?


V: Forget it, there's nothing we can do... We must go.





[15 June, 05:20 AM]


Radio: Red Grave and its surrounding cities have ceased to function as a result of a mysterious tree that apparently attacked the city approximately one month ago. In light of this incident, the government has now--


Radio: They're demons! I've seen them with my own eyes! Red Grave is completely taken over!


Radio: Let us pray for mercy. This is a trial from the heavens above... The end--


Nero: Same crap, different day. So, tell me.


Nico: Tell you what?


Nero: How's it feel to be rescuing the guy that killed your father?


Nico: Hey, I'm glad we're gettin' personal. Well, he abandoned my mother and I and left us for dead... So, I feel nothin'.


Nero: Well he's not exactly going for a Father of the Year award, now is he?


Nico: His research wasn't half bad. Came in handy. Mildly thankful for that...


Nero: You have to do that in here? It already smells ass...


Nico: That's you.


Nero: Hey, Nico.


Nico: Don't lose your tits, I see 'em.


Nero: Hey, you have to hit every single bump in the road? Gonna ruin my groove!




Soldier: Hold the line. Hold the line! Nothing gets through!


Soldier: What's happening? What's going on!?


Nero: You look like you need a hug, but you're not gonna get one from me. Better get lost...


Soldier: Hey, who are you? Hey, you're gonna get yourself killed!


Nico: Don't crap yourself. He likes to kill demon things. Let him do his thing.


Soldier: You hear what I said, you dumb one-armed son of a bitch? You're gonna die!


Nero: Cheer up, crew cut. You takin' notes? All right, time to kick some ass.


Nico: Yeah he's a real pro at smackin' demons around. That's why I built him that well-functioning arm... To kick demon ass. Hey, psycho! Watch the merchandise!


Nero: Hey, stop bitchin' and take cover.




Nero: What a lovely house plant. Oh I get it... Who brought the marshmallows? Cause I'm bringin' the fire.


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Nico: Incinerate 'em! That sword makes it easy, right?


Nero: You like that? Then have some more! Swing and a miss! They're everywhere... Makes me sick... I have you that one! ...Dammit.




Nico: Hey, tough guy. That'll keep 'em, but not for long.


Nero: Whattaya mean?


Nico: Soldier boy said city's goin' to hell and back, taken over by the underworld. Not just here, but everywhere.


Nero: Yamato did this...




Nico: Why do I feel like your pet mechanic? Don't get used to it...


Nero: Nico I showed you those Order docs. So you still owe me, remember?


Kyrie: Hey, you two. Dinner's ready!


Nero: Be right there! Hey, why don't you go ahead? I'm gonna finish up here.


Nico: I'll try to save you some... Not.


Hooded man appears.


Nero: You, uh, you need something? What is it, you hungry? Well, you're in luck pal, cause food's ready and Kyrie always makes too much. Hope you like loud talkers, too, cause we got a pair of those upstairs. You see something you like? What the hell? You a demon?


Kyrie: Nero, the food's getting cold. What's goin...?


Nero: Kyrie! Get back inside, now!


Hooded man tears off Nero's demon arm.


Hooded man: I'm taking this back. I'm running out of time...


Nero: Wait... Wait...!


Kyrie: Nero!


Nico: I leave you alone for two minutes, what the hell happened?!




Nero: V's waiting for us up ahead. Try not to get us killed on the way there.





[15 June, 05:32 AM]


Nico: That's it. No more wheels from here.


Nero: All right. Guess I'm walkin', then.


Nico: Yo, yo, yo. Check it out.


Nero: What? And this is?


Nico: From Morrison, I think it's his manifesto.


Nero: Hey, we doin' this or what?


Nico: I'm waitin' on you. I'm cookin'. Any special orders?




Nero: I need to catch up to V, fast.




Nero: Somebody call a doctor?


Goliath: Human... I wasn't expecting any survivors!


Nero: Sorry to disappoint ya... Hey, ya happen to see a guy around here, about this big, uses a cane? I'm supposed to meet him. Did you snack on him?


Goliath: Your blood... is a very precious sacrifice. Eating you would do me no good. I must have every last drop... to rule the Underworld... as king!


Nero: King? You? I don't know. I mean, you're a big guy and all, but you seem more like a knuckle-scrapping fart in the wind than anything else. No offense.


Goliath: Puny human... Do you know who I am? I shall show you... the wrath... of the mighty Goliath!!


Nero: Cool trick! Hey, do you do parties?


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Goliath: You'll be sorry for this!


Nero: Yeah, maybe I will. Sorry I'm about to kill ya!


Goliath: Insolent human! You're the one who's going to die! Hahahahaaa! Tremble before my might!


Nero: It's your grave... Jack it up all you want.


Goliath: Stop buzzing around! Is that all, you puny human? Eat dirt, you scum! H-how could a mere human do this?


Nero: Says a mere demon...! How about we wrap this up?


Goliath: Damn you! Heed my power!




Goliath: I must not be defeated... in a place like this. The fruit... is mine... I will rule the Underworld, not him...!


V: "I curse my stars in bitter grief and woe. That made my love so high and me, so low."


Goliath: Why... Why are you...?


V: "Little wanderer, hie thee home!"


Nero: Thought I was gonna have to pick you out of his... tummy teeth.


V: Pardon my delay, I was catching up on some reading.


Nero: Yeah... Looks like a real page-turner. So... You think Dante's still in there?


V: If Urizen defeated him, then I expect he's not much more than Qliphoth pollen by now.


Nero: What?


V: Qliphoth. It's a tree that grows in the underworld. It thrives on human blood and those whose blood it sucks, well... Let's just say they don't turn out too well.


Nero: Well, in any case... we need to find out. If Dante's alive, we'll save him, if not... we don't.


V: Wait. First, we need to exterminate some Qliphoth roots.


Nero: V... What the hell are you?


Nico: I know, I know, I'm late. Shut it! The roads were all clogged. Hey, you must be V, huh? Hey you gonna get that? Ding ding ding, right by your feet! I'm gonna make something amaaaazing out of this.


Nero: Did you just sniff that? Do you have any idea where that's been?


Nico: Up your butt?


Nero: Focus on the mission.





[15 June, 06:26 AM]


V: I think we should split into two groups.


Nero: ...And cover more ground. Good idea.


Nico: Behold my genius. Ah-ah-ah, Cash first.


Nero: All the materials I collected for your little pet projects don't count for anything?


Nico: My brilliant, badass work is worth every dime, you know it.


Nero: Well, your quality control sucks ass, and you know that.


Nico: Or maybe don't let the demons smack you around so much?


Nero: Whatever...


Nico: I am truly gifted. It's a work of art!


Griffon: So you're an artist now, huh?


Nico: Yes I am. Got any question, little chicken? My grandmother was called the .45 Caliber Virtuoso... Legendary gunsmith. I hope to be like her someday. An artist, and a lethal artisan. Everything I create is art, whether it's a gun... Or a steel pot... to cook birds in. Any more questions? Huh? ...Little chickee.


V: I'll take my leave now. And if I don't see you along the way, I'll see you at the bottom of the Qliphoth


Nero: Sure. What're you gonna do?


Nico: I gotta shake the cobwebs out, I'll let you know. Hey, you got any more questions, better ask it now. I can't read minds... yet.


Nero: All right... move out. So much for teamwork...




Nero: Think I'll handle the closer one first. Gotta start somewhere...




Nero: What, no chit-chat or monologue? Just getting right to the point, huh?


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Nero: This demon... Something different about it...


Nero: Hey! Don't you, uh, need those?




Nero: Dante's friend...


Nico: It's Lady.


Nero: You know her?


Nico: From my gunsmith days.


Nero: What?


Nico: I can't believe you'd do this to Kyrie. I'm gonna have to tell her, man... I'm jokin'... Hey, loosen up your jock strap.


Nero: Haha.


Nico: Don't do anything I wouldn't do.


Nero: Kyrie would kill me right now...





[15 June, 06:35 AM]


Griffon: So V, you think this kid can kill Urizen?


V: One can only hope... But for now, we have a more... pressing engagement.


V: We've a minor errand before we reach Urizen.


Griffon: Oooh, genius, says "be careful." Yeah, no shit, Shirley! Ain't that right, V? I mean you ARE fragile at the moment. Wouldn't take much to wipe you out in a sticky situation. I'm just saying running away is okay. It's always okay to run away, if you're not up for it!


V: "He who desires but act not, breeds pestilence." ...So it is written.


Griffon: Okay Shakespeare. Just remember this. You and I like to exist. So get rid of those demons quick, cause killin' them ain't my shtick! I got your back, cause dying is whack!




Nidhogg: You dodged me! Did you dodge me?!


Griffon: Nidhogg, I never liked this guy.


Nidhogg: You pest. Do I know you?


Griffon: Dumb as a box of rocks. Let's not even mess with this guy, V. He can't even leave the Qliphoth, anyway. Just a Qliphoth parasite.


Nidhogg: Did you insult me?


Griffon: Uh oh...


Nidhogg: You insulted me!


Griffon: I think he heard me... and he's angry!


Nidhogg: I'm going to kill you!


V: Not in this lifetime. "As the air to a bird, or the sea to a fish, so is contempt to the contemptible."


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Nidhogg: You But you... human...? Huhhhh...?


V: "If the fool would persist in his folly, he would become wise."


Nidhogg: Augh..? Ah...?


Griffon: Meaning don't try to think too much, shithead!


Nidhogg: I'm... I'm busy. You guys can finish it. I'm heeerreeee!


Griffon: This dimwit wants to be all high-and-mighty! Strike 'em down, V! Even the big bad kitty knows you got shit for brains!


Nidhogg: Qu-qu-qu-quiet! and cat! Chaaaaaarrrge!




Griffon: Okay, um, all right, that's not good at all. That's not good. Wait, where-where are you going? Are you running away? That's, that's not a good sign.


V: I'm afraid that... that's a little bit more than I can take on right now.





[15 June, 07:27 AM]


Griffon: We're alive, we made it! It's our lucky day, V! Let's go find a game of cards.


V: These Qliphoth roots... They're everywhere.


Griffon: Well, we ARE underground.


V: Then I guess we have some clearing up to do.


Griffon: And me without my garden shears.




Griffon: Malphas... Of course, more trouble. Not sure about that one, though. Never seen him before-- not in the Underworld, anyway!?


V: Shh.....

Malphas: Search for the devil sword Sparda. You know where it is... He told me to leave it be, but I'm afraid it still concerns me. As long as there is a blood descendent of Sparda... I cannot take any chances. Do you understand?! Find it, and destroy it! Only then will his reign be truly realized!


V: I see. I know what you are. Don't worry, I'll be gentle.


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Elder Geryon Knight: Weak, powerless creatures.


Griffon: So? You got a comeback for that?


V: "One thought fills immensity..."


Griffon: This is not the time for poetry! Wait, what does that even mean?


V: Where there's a will, there's a way... Now let's go!


Griffon: Be careful, V! He's got horsepower.


V: I'll take that momentum... And send it right back.


V: The power to control time... That's quite a horse.


Griffon: But that would mean it's Geryon! I thought Dante killed it already!


V: A rare species, but apparently not quite extinct. Until today, that is.




Griffon: V!


V: I'm fine... I must chase him. If the devil sword Sparda still exists, it may very well be our only hope.


Griffon: V, uhhh, think about this for a minute now. What will you do if you find it? You gotta be strong in mind and body to wield the Sparda, and you, sir, are neither. Hate to break it to you, but the Sparda will just be too much for ya.


V: For me, yes. But what of the boy... Nero. Let's go. Once we are near the Sparda, even I should be able to sense its presence.





[15 June, 07:25 AM]


Nico: Well, she ain't dead. Got a pretty smokin' body, though. Not that I was-- barely even noticed. You know, you should go do your thing. I got this.


Nero: Yeah. What the hell? Whoa... He's too big to leave alone. I better take care of it. Stay alert.


Nico: Yeah.


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Nero: Look at this asshole, prancing around... You think I'm turning back now? Fat chance! Gotta hammer that soft spot up there...


Gilgamesh collapses mid battle and the hole in the floor reveals V with Griffon.


Nero: What're you doing down there?


Griffon: You didn't think you did that all by yourself, did ya?


Nero: You know, I bet you taste like chicken...


Griffon: Oh, you ungrateful sonuva--


V: I'll leave this beast to you. I must press on.


Nero: Well... Guess it's just you and me, cockroach.




Nero: This thing's a root, too. What's going on?


Nico: Yo, Lady's awake. Got any questions for her, better make it fast.


Nero: All right.


Nico: Hey wait wait wait, we could use that. Pick it up. Not that one, the other one.


Nero: This one?


Nico: Uhhh, next-- next to it!


Nero: Come on, Nico. This one?


Nico: Sure.




Nero: So what happened to him? And Trish? They end up like you?


Lady: Trish, she... She was captured. I remembered that. But I don't know what happened to Dante.


Nero: Dammit.


V: You can't travel through here in a car.


Nero: Yeah, we know. We're just waitin' on you. There's only one way up that tree. Hang on, I'll get ready.


V: I'm glad to see you look so well.


Lady: You too, I guess...


V: I found these. If they're of any use to you, they're yours.


Nico: Wow! I can make something truly awesome out of this.


Lady: Shocker... Can we trust him?


Nero: Your guess is as good as mine. He might be useful, though. Enough talking, get some rest. You need it.




Nico: Yo, Lady, wake up! It's time to get to work.


Lady: I was just told to get some rest.


Nico: Aww, you just told to get some rest? Well we need to make a path, so start digging.


Lady: Okay...


Nico: C'mon, get up, get up, get up!


Lady: Got something to wear that's good for digging?





[15 June, 08:57 AM]


Nero: Nice, getting the band back together, huh?


V: What evil lurks... I must destroy.


Nero: I thought that was the plan all along.




Nero: Took us long enough to get here. What, tired already?


V: I just remembered something... This town was attacked once before.


Nero: Is that so?


V: I was here... I can still see it. In fact, I was playing right here. That was the house. This is where we part ways. You go ahead.


Nero: You're gonna miss all the fun.


V: No, I must seek out the devil sword Sparda.


Nero: What? Yeah, I don't think that's such a good idea, trust me.


V: You're not the only one who thinks so. But to win this fight, we're going to need all the help we can get.


Nero: Not the only one? What the hell aren't you telling me?





[15 June, 09:56 AM]


Nero: Guess there's no point thinking about it.


Nico's van arrives.


Nero: Perfect timing... Now we're starting to act like a team.


Nico: Euw! You, like, flirtin' with me? Knock it off... Get in the car. Oh my gawd...




Nero: Well... no point in turnin' back now... Not that that was ever an option. Time for some payback.




Nero: Hey douchebag, miss me? Where's Dante? No body? No dried up jerky? Nothin'?


Urizen: You've come here to die?


Nero: He talks. Urizen, huh? I'll bet your parents didn't like you much, cause your name sucks.


Urizen: I am without a name. I am power, absolute.


Nero: Well, No Name... I'll be sure to put that on your tombstone.


Urizen: You will suffer... and... die.


Nero: I'll show you dead weight.


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Urizen: You would so readily throw away your life, child?


Nero: I'm not interested in you having a winning streak. Now I can break it up for ya.


Urizen: You shall regret your existence. What a bore...




Nero: It's about time I landed somethin'.


Urizen: Weak mortal... Demon power does not course through your veins. Yet, you try... How dare you strike ME?!


Nero: The hell...!?


Urizen: You will regret... being born useless and human.  I will show you... your worst nightmares! I will give you... despair and death!


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Urizen: Scatter like dust... Witness the true power...! You worthless piece of scum! Nowhere to go! Run while you can...!



Urizen: Merely human. Petulant mortal flesh. Cursed... the moment you were brought into this world. Who dares interfere? What creature stands against a king!?


Nero: Is that... a demon?





[15 June, 10:06 AM]


Dante: You could have at least knocked, Morrison.


Morrison: Yeah, I could have. I got some good news and some bad news... Pick your poison, which you wanna hear first?


Dante: Just speak.


Morrison: Bad news it is! Lady Patty's feathers are all ruffled. See, she wants to invite you to her birthday party, but your phone is disconnected.


Dante: You're a smart one, Morrison. You notice the electric and water are out, too?


Morrison: I expected nothing less.


Dante: So what's the good news.


Morrison: Oh, I got a gig. Cash, up front.


Dante: Cash up front? This, I like. The water needs turning on, and those toilets need flushing.


Morrison: Water, gas and power... Comin' outta your cut. You're a real agency now.


Phone rings.


Dante: Devil May Cry.


Patty: Dante, Dante! Do you have any idea how many times I've tried to call? Like a zillion! Oh my god, tonight's my birthday party! Yeahhhh! I'm turning 18! Not a little kid--


Dante: Okay, Morrison. I'll take you up on that gig. But ONLY if you can get me out of that hellish birthday party.


Morrison: Consider your RSVP declined. Meet your new client. Listen, I'm gonna find Lady and Trish. Bring them in on this.


Dante: What?! C'mon, you don't think I can handle this gig on my own?


Morrison: It's a big job... Big job, Dante. You're gonna need the help.


Dante: So what's your name?


V: "I have no name; I am but two days old..." Just kidding. You can call me V.


Dante: Okay, V... Why don't you tell me everything about this job?


V: A powerful demon is about to resurrect and we need your help, Dante.


Dante: Now that's a familiar tune... Do you have any idea how many times I've heard that exact same line?


V: This is... special.


Dante: Special? Okay, so what's so special about this one?


V: This demon is your "reason"... your reason for fighting.


Dante: This demon got a name?




Griffon: What the hell?


V: Did you find it?


Griffon: Uh, well, I don't know what I found, but... I think I saw some demons dancing?


V: Well, then I guess we keep going. The devil sword Sparda is nearby.




Griffon: Whoa, this is some kind of ritual shindig, isn't it? You guys got the dance fever for Sparda, don't you? Whoa, easy on the dance floor there, partner.


V: I'll be taking that back. You know your endless worshipping isn't making the Sparda any happier.


V: It seems this sword is still too strong for me.


Griffon: So close, though, so close. You got a lot of heart, kid, you really do, but you're a bit of a sissy in the strength department. Hey, hey, no offense, uh, you know.


V: That kid, Nero... he has the strength.


Griffon: It speaks.


V: Dante...


Griffon: I don't even have the words. I--- He's alive, he's alive!


V: The devil sword Sparda was concealing Dante's presence.


Griffon: How does one friggin' guy have so much luck, huh!? Uhhh, V? No no no, get a grip on yourself now, c'mon!


V: If only you could defeat Urizen... If only... No.


Griffon: V? No no no...


V: If only you never existed... Then I...!


Griffon: Don't do it, V! No no NO!







Eva: You need to hide, Dante. No matter what happens, you mustn't leave! I need to find Vergil, I promise I'll be back. I know this is hard. You must listen to me, be a big boy... a man, huh? If I don't return, you must run, by yourself, alone. You must change your name. Forget your past and start a new life as someone else. A new beginning. Vergil? Where are you, Vergil??




Dante: For a second there I thought you were gonna shish kabob me.


V: I know how stubborn you can be. I thought it might be the only way to wake you.


Dante: What day is it?


V: The 15th... of June.


Dante: A month? No wonder I'm so stiff.


Griffon: Right, sunshine, now put a fire under it. We gotta get going cause that annoying pimple Nero is making a beeline for Urizen. And if he gets there he's gonna-- Smashed like a bug!!


Dante: Hey, this is my gig. Leave Nero out of this.


V: If you could defeat Urizen... then I never would have dreamed of using that child. But Urizen... is much stronger than we ever could have imagined.




[15 May, 04:44 AM]


Lady: Oh it stinks in here.


Dante: I know, smells like hot garbage.


V: This is far worse than I thought...


Dante: There's no crime in turning tail, V. These things might be a little too much for ya.


V: You're right. I'll leave the rest to you.


Griffon: Wha, what-- What? Wha-whoa, my, my V. All the way down here and turnin' tail, really? Huh?


V: One must always have an insurance policy.


Lady: Who was that guy? Can't believe he just ran.


Dante: No one special. C'mon, let's go clean up this garbage.


Trish: First come, first serve on the targets, right?


Lady: Music to my ears. Hurry up, Dante!


Dante: Guess I get to see it with my own eyes.... If it really is you.




Dante: Aw man, they're already here! These ladies work fast.




Dante: Well, well... O king of stench and filth, I'm impressed! Those are two of the most badass women in the world. And I only know one other guy who can defeat 'em... Jackpot!


Urizen: Dante...





[15 June, 11:11 AM]


V: Our last hope, Nero... was completely useless.




Dante: V, get Nero out of here! This was a bad move! Nero, go! You're just dead weight.


Nero: That bastard called me dead weight! I didn't come all this way for nothing!


Urizen: This... is power. The devil sword Sparda no longer serves a purpose. I have plans for the both of you. You will exist to give me strength. How fortunate to serve such divine purpose.




Dante: All right. Enough's enough. Can't let a a man's job.


V: Hey, wait! I'm not done talking yet--


Dante: Okay, you get some rest. By the way... I guess I owe you one.




Dante: Oh, they're just gonna let me through! ...Boy, wouldn't that be the day. Is it Halloween already?


Cavaliere Angelo: Sparda...!


Dante: That costume looks a little big... I thought you had better taste than that. How bout I take it in a little?


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Cavaliere Angelo: Sparda...!


Dante: Sorry but I can't read all your moves! Helps that I know who you really are.


Cavaliere Angelo: Dante!




Dante: Whoa, looks like I took in a little too much. You okay?


Trish: I've been better. Dante... that demon is...!


Dante: Shh... Don't even think about it. Just rest.


V: Dante!


Dante: Take care of Trish for me.


V: Dante, wait--




Trish: Dante's left...


V: Yes... And I don't think he can win.


Trish: What was that demon, V? Where did it come from? Urizen is not a demon. I know that for a fact because I'm from the underworld. My God, what are you, then?


V: It doesn't matter, I'm a shadow of my former self who lost everything. I will you the story of my birth.





[15 June, 11:47 AM]


V: Suffering defeat after defeat, that man's body was reaching its limit. Breaking down. But he couldn't die yet. The man had a job that must be done. To defeat his twin brother.


Vergil: Dante...


Vergil: "...heavy chain, that does freeze my bones around!"


V: In order to defeat his younger brother, he could only do one thing with the crumbling flesh and feelings. He needed to separate man from devil with the strength of the Yamato. And eventually, the man became a true devil.


V: I tried to hold together my crumbling flesh with what little demonic power I have left, but... I'm approaching my limit. In separating and regaining my human soul, I've realized the gravity of the crime I've committed. I've realized how important everything was... Everything I've thrown away in my pursuit of power.


Trish: Is that why you went to find Dante?


V: Yes. Foolish. I thought maybe he could change my... maybe fix... Maybe right my wrong. Tell me... Was this fool before you right?


Trish: I'm not your mommy, V. You're a big boy. And you need to see this through. Dante's war.




Griffon: There you are. Hey, what's wrong with you. Hey! Hey, Dante!


Dante: The demonic power was activated in me once when Vergil lovingly jammed this through my chest. I always wondered... Why did my father give me the Rebellion.


Griffon: Okay, what are you muttering?


Dante: Over the years I've been stabbed and jabbed by a number of things. But who would've ever guessed...


Griffon: Have you lost your mind!? There's a demon to destroy! Kill yourself later! I'll help!


Dante: If Yamato can separate man from devil... Then what about the Rebellion?


Griffon: Wow... You are... absorbing the Sparda!




Nero: It can't be... Dante, you son of a bitch... I knew you couldn't be killed that easily! Hey, he's all yours. But don't let it become a habit.


Griffon: Win, Dante, Win!


Urizen: Dante...


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Urizen: Run while you can... Insignificant. Dante.. You dare approach me in that form!?


Dante: You're one to talk! Do you know what you look like now?


Urizen: What an eyesore. Scatter like dust...




Dante: All this time, and you still don't get it.


Urizen: It is YOU who does not understand. It has begun.




Lady: What's happening?


Nico: Bad news! Gotta go now, that house plant is pissed off!




Urizen: The Qliphoth is revealed in its entirety. This inconvenience... matters not.





[15 June, 12:36 PM]


Lady: Well, looks like no one's worse for wear. I'm just gonna double check.


Dante: Hey, where did that garbage god go? What is Urizen after?


V: He's at the top of the Qliphoth.


Trish: It's the other way around, Dante. This is the lowest level of the Qliphoth's upper echelon. Human blood is the source of demons' power. The fruit born through the Qliphoth is even more dense than the blood that created it. Its power is unparalleled. Even the almighty Mundus used it to become the king of the underworld. V told me everything.


Dante: Yeah well, that's a lovely story and all, but... as long as we know where to find him.


Nico: Whoa! You... are the infamous Dante! Um, I'm Nicoletta Goldstein. Sound familiar? My grandmother is Nell Goldstein. The gunsmith that made all your fancy weapons that you got... strapped... back there. Yeah, there she is!


Dante: You don't much look like her.


Nico: Yeah, I got my looks from my Daddy. That's about all I got from him. But based on his research, I-I-I managed to cobble this-- Um... it- it- Consider it a gift! In honor of us finally meeting! Meeting.


Dante does a Michael Jackson.


Dante: I'll take that.


Nero: Dante. I'm gonna go, too.


Dante: Why don't you sit this one out.


Nero: Oh, let you call me dead weight again? No thanks. I've got all the power I need. Right here.


Dante: You don't understand. It's not what I mean--


V: Let him go, Dante. Time is a luxury that we can no longer afford. We must chase after him, post-haste.


Nero: What, does that mean you're going too?


V: I have a duty to see this through.


Dante: Well, that's all you had to say, Mr. Poetry. I'm gonna go my way, and you guys can go yours. Let's just say that's the best for the cause.




Dante: Looks like we still got a long ways to go.





[15 June, 01:13 PM]


Griffon: I can't carry you anymore. I gotta put you down! I gotta put you down...


V: Damn, just a little longer. Come on... I must... go... Before he loses completely.


V: Dammit... A little longer... Hold on just a little longer...


Griffon: Are you all right, V? You might want to take a break...




V: Where am I? I'm losing my power...gotta recover somehow. This dimension, it's... healing my body...


Griffon: Let's get the hell outta here! This humidity is killing me!


V: Agreed. It's time we got back on course.




Griffon: We finally made it out! That thing was something else...


V: Best we avoid it, if possible. Especially given my... condition.




Malphas: If he reaches the fruit, it will all be over. Even Mundus failed to reign over the human world... Surely, we know he will not.


Griffon: Malphas! No way we can handle her, we don't have the strength!


V: I know. But we must get through this, somehow.


Malphas: Ahh, an intruder perhaps? I'm coooommiiing....





[15 June, 01:13 PM]


Nero: Dammit, running a little low... Not gonna last much longer without a refill.


Nico: Hey, honey, need assistance?

Nero: What the hell's your problem? You TRYIN' to kill me!?


Nico: If you wanna bitch, blame it on Lady. SHE's behind the wheel. Okay, enough with the suspense. What do you need?




Malphas: I'm coooommiiing....


Nero: Gotta pay attention, sweetheart.


Malphas: Sparda's kin. But you're nothing more than an empty shell with no power. You are as weak as your flesh, human.


Nero: Hey, we're tougher than we look. But... there's only one way to find out.


Malphas: I will enjoy this...


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Malphas: You won't even make a good offering!


V: Take it. I was babysitting it for you.


Malphas: What are you looking for? Here, I'm over here! How could he...!? Futile attempt. Don't let it go to waste.


Nero: Game over, birdie. Heh, this'll do just fine.


Malphas: What a fool. Now die! Resurrect! Rise with my power!


Nero: Don't wanna give up the ghost, do ya?




Malphas: How do you have so much power left?


Nero: You can come out now.


V: I guess I owe you one.


Nero: You should turn around. Your body's not gonna last much longer.


V: That, I cannot do. I must go!


Nero: Dammit, V. Don't push yourself. You need some rest!


V: I must go... to where Urizen is.


Nero: Why!? Why the hell do you have to--


V: I beg you! This is my last request.


Nero: Fine. Dante's definitely gonna beat us there...





[15 June, 01:13 PM]


King Cerberus: Leave at once! Only kings of the Underworld may enter these gates! You shall not pass!


Dante: Easy there, fella. Hey, I remember a stinky little pooch just like you.


King Cerberus: You insult me, foul-scented creature!


Dante: Looks like your master's got you on a pretty short leash. Come on little puppy, I'll take you out for a walk, c'mon! Let's go!


King Cerberus: You have fought our kin in the past... But I am king of the Cerberus tribe! They were weak! But WE will feast on your flesh and gnaw on your bones!


Dante: So, you're the strongest in the litter. Looks like we're gonna need a bigger leash. Come on!


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


King Cerberus: Fear me! Fear my flames!


Dante: Huh, you're a bit tougher than the rest of your breed.


King Cerberus: Feel my thunder!


Dante: This fight's a real shocker. You holding up okay there, pup?


King Cerberus: Not bad... But I'll be even better once you die!


King Cerberus: I'll burn you to death!


Dante: You again? Jeez, cool off, hothead...


King Cerberus: Taste the most powerful lightning in all of Hell!


King Cerberus: Your flesh will freeze!


Dante: Oh, that's nice. Things were getting a little toasty here.


King Cerberus: Then I'll freeze you down to your very soul!


King Cerberus: My flames will consume you!




Dante: Guess I'm the first one here. I like that!





[15 June, 02:01 PM]


V: The truth is... I wanted to be protected and loved... But I was alone. My only choice was to survive.


Nero: V, you gotta rest.


V: Nero... I will tell you... everything. There is no demon named Urizen. Only a man who threw away his humanity in an endless pursuit of power. He's Dante's older brother.


Nero: Dante's brother?


V: Yes. And his real name is... Vergil.




Dante: Vergil... Hey, is that the damn fruit that you've been jabberin' about? Doesn't look so special to me. Yup, this is where it all started. The day mother saved me and... left you behind. The thing you don't know is, she tried to save you, too. She kept searching and searching... Until it killed her.


Urizen: I have no recollection of this tale, or this place. It's all an illusion, created by this extraordinary fruit. Its power, you see, is all I ever wanted. And with this...


Dante: No...


Urizen: I will have everything!


Dante: No, brother, you don't have everything. That last shred of humanity that you still had? You just lost it.


Urizen: That is nothing but the pitiful cries of those without strength. Come to me, brother. I shall enlighten you, Dante!


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Urizen: Power...More POWER...


Dante: You ready to do this, Vergil? It all ends here!


Urizen: Scatter! This is true power... The power I've sought for so long!


Dante : You've been chasing this for an eternity... and it's nothing but useless shit. What's wrong,

Vergil? This is no time to hold back.


Urizen: It would seem so...


Dante: How... How are you so powerful? You never lost anything! Danteeeeee! This is the end!




Nero: They're brothers? Why are they fighting each other?


V: To see one's justice through, a man must fight for it. Even if the one who stands before him is his kin.


Nero: That's ridiculous.


V: The brothers of blood disagree on the very reason of their existence. They must fight.


Nero: Dante!


Dante: You're late... Just finishing up.


Nero: Is that really your brother?


Dante: I'm afraid so.


Nero: So he was behind all this. Your own flesh and blood.


Dante: Right again.


V: In the last throes of defeat, I see.


Urizen: You...


Dante: V, get back. Things are about to get really messy.


V: No, please... Let me. I want to end this battle... with my own hands. Do not struggle. For if you can't even defeat me, then you've already lost.


Urizen: I will not lose... Not to Dante. I need power... More power!


V: I know... we are one and the same, you and I. But you've lost me, and I've lost you. Yet we are connected by that one feeling. "While thy branches mix with mine, and our roots together join."


Urizen and V disappear, and a man appears in their stead.


Nero: What is it?


Dante: Vergil.




Dante: Ya got some pretty big cojones for coming back. Just don't know when to give up, do ya? Get out of my way, Nero!


Vergil: Defeating you like this has no meaning.


Dante: C'mon, Vergil. Let's do this!


Vergil: Heal your wounds, Dante. Get strong. After that, we'll settle the matter. Thank you, Nero.


Dante: Dammit!


Nero: If that's your brother, what happened to V?


Dante: He returned... to himself. Go home, Nero. This doesn't concern you.


Nero: Like hell! I lost my right arm because of him!


Dante: This is not your fight. I need to stop him and that's all that matters.


Nero: I'm not gonna let you have all the fun, Dante!


Dante: You don't get it!


Nero: Lemme guess, I'm dead weight? You can shove that--


Dante: That's not it, Nero.


Nero: What is it, then!?


Dante: He's your father!


Nero: What!?


Dante: I had the feeling the first time I saw you, but I just wasn't sure. And then I saw how the Yamato reacted... and I was certain. He's your father. Now, he needs an ass-kicking... But I can't have you go kill your old man.


Nero: My father...?




Vergil: That day, if our positions were switched... Would our fates be different? Would I have your life, and you mine? Let's settle this... Dante.




Lady: What? What's happening now?


Trish: Oh God, I thought it was over!


Nico: This isn't good. We're gonna get dragged into this!


Trish: Dante, what happened?


Dante: My dumbass brother's back, and I'm gonna rip him a new one.


Trish: Vergil's--? How?


Nico: Dante! Made it for Lady and she paid for it, so consider it a rental.


Lady: Hey, you can't just--


Dante: Okay, okay we'll take care of that later. Right now, you three get the hell out of here. I'm gonna take care of old douchebag. Got a feeling this one's gonna be a doozy.





[15 June, 03:06 PM]


Dante:  Never would've guessed you'd come back. Dammit, V, was this your plan all along?


Dante: Hey guys, where ya been? I thought you went back into Vergil. You're gonna wish you did.


Griffon: Oh, the wise guy, Dante. We were spawned from Vergil's abominable thoughts. But you knew that already...


Dante: Come to think of it, I did know somethin' was off. Just like with my old brother.


Griffon: Well we're merely the discarded thoughts from when he was Nelo Angelo. No longer bound in his consciousness. We're here now to kill you of our own free will. Liberating! And kill you we shall, Dante. Us, not Vergil.


Griffon: Time out! Gimme some time out.


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Griffon: Bring it on! This is a grave-- either yours, or ours!


Dante: Not the worst place to die... But death's not on my agenda just yet!


Griffon: What a mess! Damn, you're as tough as you look! It's not over yet... Good, good! Now you're talking! Just close your eyes and go to sleep... forever!




Dante: Should'a known better. You got a good heart but you're about a sharp as a marble.


Griffon: Perhaps... But if you had even a little bit of trouble defeating us, imagine what Vergil can do to you. Go see for yourself. Us? This is our final flight. And the end of Vergil's nightmares. Godspeed, Dante... You'll need it.


Dante: Rest in peace, little chicken. It's been a bash.




Trish: Nero, jump in!


Nero: Where's Dante?

Trish: He's got this. We gotta go, now!


Nero: So this guy Vergil, you know him?


Trish: Vaguely, yes.


Nero: Dante said that guy's my father... What the hell's going on, Trish?


Trish: His logic is sound... I had a hunch myself.


Nero: This doesn't make any SENSE!


Trish: I know you hate Vergil, but you can't kill your own father.


Lady: It's true. You'd never recover from that. You saved us, you should be proud. Now you can put all that behind you--


Nero: Nico, stop the car!


Nico: No chance! After all this, are you insane!?


Nero: fine, I'll go by myself!


Nico: Nero!





[15 June, 04:04 PM]


Dante: Hey Vergil, your portal-opening days are over. Give me the Yamato.


Vergil: If you want it, then you'll have to take it. But you already knew that.


Dante: I have a feeling you'd say that.


Vergil: How many times have we fought?


Dante: Hard to say. It's the only memory I have of us since we were kids. Time to finish this, Vergil. Once and for all.


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Vergil: I won't lose to the likes of you... little brother!


Vergil (stabs Dante): Just like old times... Foolishness... Is rushing in blind all you can do?


Dante: It's just about time to settle this.


Vergil (devil triggers): That's right... Come on!


Vergil (starts flying around the arena): Prepare... to die!


Dante: You cut off your own son's arm for THIS?


Vergil: My son... means nothing to me!


Dante: Think you can beat me? Not in a million years.


Vergil: Save that until you win, if you can.




Vergil: Nero is my son?


Dante: Yeah, dumbass. You can't remember through that thick skull of yours?


Vergil: Well, well... That was a long time ago.


Dante: I guess you were young once too. As much as I'd love to hear that story, I think it's about time we...


Vergil: ...ended this.





[15 June, 04:27 PM]


Kyrie: Hello? Nero, is that you, Nero? Did something happen?


Nero: Kyrie... When I was a kid, I... I was alone. You and Credo were all I knew. and now all of a sudden I find out I have a family. What am I supposed to do with that?


Kyrie: You always know which path is right, and which is wrong. There's no need to doubt yourself.


Nero: Thanks... I guess that's all I needed to hear. I have one last thing to take care of. then I'm coming home. I couldn't protect Credo. To this day, I hate myself for not having enough strength. But this time is different. I swear! I'M NOT LETTING YOU DIE!!!




Vergil: This is... curious...


Dante: Nero?


Vergil: What form of power is this?


Dante: What the hell?


Nero: This ends, right here.


Dante: Listen to me, I told you already, this is not your--


Nero: You listen, dead weight. I won't let you kill each other. There are other ways of settling your differences. I'm putting a stop to this sibling rivalry.


Vergil: Ahh, you came all this way just for that.


Nero: Vergil...V... Whatever you call yourself... Dante's not gonna die here, and neither are you. Do you have a problem with that?

Dante: "Not gonna die", my ass. That bitch slap nearly killed me.


Vergil: If I beat Nero... Then by default, I beat you. Agreed, Dante?


Dante: Whatever, I don't really care. I'm just gonna sit this one out.


Nero: When this is over, I'll make you submit... Father.


---------------------(Mid battle)-----------------------


Vergil: This has nothing to do with you. Stand down.


Nero: Nothing to do with me!? It has everything to do with me!


Vergil: Nero...


Nero (devil triggers): Fuck you!


Vergil: You...


Nero: Take me seriously now!?


Nero: You feel accepting yet!?


Vergil: Of your existence? Or your strength?


Nero: Both, you fuckin' asshole!


Nero: Relying on numbers won't do you any good!




Vergil: Interesting...


Dante: Oh, brother. You  cut off your own son's arm for more power, and you still lost.


Nero: Enough, dammit! The underworld is taking over, and we need to do something before it's too late.


Dante: He's right. We need to close that portal. Hey, you lost, so you better do what he says.


Vergil: I can still fight. But if those roots continue to spread through town, it'll just interfere with our business.

Dante: Now, that's the smartest thing I've ever heard you say. Better hurry up. We still got a score to settle.


Vergil: Evidently.


Nero: Wait, where are you going?


Vergil: We need to sever the Qliphoth roots from the underworld itself. Then we'll seal the portal with Yamato.


Nero: Hang on, if you do that, you can't come back.


Dante: Why do you think I'm goin'? Somebody's gotta keep an eye on your old man.


Nero: You can't just expect me to stay here while you both go--


Dante: Because you're here we can go. We're trusting you with things on this side, capisce?


Vergil: Make haste, Dante.


Dante: Yeah, I know.


Nero: Hey, wait!


Dante: Take care, Nero. Adios...


Vergil: I won't lose next time. Hold on to that until then.


Nero: Idiots...




Nico: Hoo-wee. I'm still in friggin' shock...


Nero: About what?


Nico: Uhh, duh! Your arm? Who the hell grows an arm back, it's just weird. It's like a... lizard tail, or something?


Nero: Look, I don't know. It just grew. I mean, are you kiddin' me? Lots of weird stuff happened. There were demons and scary plant roots and arms growin' back. Lots of stuff.


Nico: Do you know how much love and care I put into that Devil Breaker?


Nero: Nope. But this arm, it's nice.


Nico: So uh, how's it feel?


Nero: How's what feel?


Nico: Saving the man who killed your own father. Heard Dante killed Vergil once.


Nero: Doesn't matter. They're both gone now anyway.


Nico: It's okay to cry if you want, Nero, over a loss.


Nero: I'm not crying.


Nico: It doesn't make you a crybaby. Does make you a little bitch though.


Nero: There it is. You think I'm a demon?


Nico: I didn't cry when my asshole daddy died. But...Yeah, I know, I know. I wouldn't be here without him, that's a biological fact.


Nero: Right.


Nico: All I'm saying is, tough guy... it's okay to cry if you want.


Nero: I'm not crying.


Nico: Devils cry.


Nero: I'm not gonna cry.


Nico: Kittens cry "meow" puppies cry "woof!"


Nero: Will you shut up? Will you stop it? Look at you. You're--nobody's crying, all right?


Nico: Why don't you cry on my shoulder? I know you wanna.


Nero: Stop saying cry. If you say cry again-- Devil May Cry-- @#$%


Nico: You said it.


Nero: Hey, Kyrie.... Yeah, I'm coming home. Oh yeah, I don't wanna spoil it, but I've got a surprise for you.


Nico: Oh yeah, he's got a HUGE surprise.


Nero: Will you shut up? No no no no, Kyrie, not you. Nico, you know, and her big mouth. We're just-- What the hell's your problem!? Where'd you learn to drive!? Hey, uh... sorry, I gotta call ya later. It's time to get back to work. Got an arm, I'm good.


Nico: It's a prototype. And this is the perfect place to test it out! Look, you're gonna use it, and--


Nero/Nico: "It's a work of ART!"


Nero: I gotcha.


Nico: ...and it ain't complete without you.


Nero: Well, how sweet... Feels good!


Nico: You'll get fixed as soon as we get back!


Nero: So... devils cry, huh? Let's hear what that SOUNDS LIKE!




Nero: Guess that's the end, then.




Dante: So all we gotta do is cut this thing down?


Vergil: That's right. I'm more than capable of handling this on my own.


Dante: You're gonna need some help... And someone to keep an eye on you.




A few weeks later


[24 July, 09:24 PM]


Lady: Wow, no sign of him. Nothing.


Trish: Mmm... yeah.


Lady: Then, can I have this office? Because I've been thinking it's almost time for me to settle down somewhere.


Trish: No, I don't think so. I rather quite like it.


Morrison: Oh, I hate to spoil your dreams, ladies, but that shit ain't gonna happen.


Lady: Whattaya mean, Morrison?


Morrison: See, there's this deed to this place, and I have it.


Trish: Why do you--


Morrison: Clever little devil came to see me right before his last job. Said something like, "My dearest friend, I know you'll keep this safe, cause them crazy bitches--" Did I say crazy bitches? I'm sorry, I meant ladies. Anyway, the rest of the story is not important, you get the gist.


Morrison: I wonder if he even plans on coming back.


Trish: Got me.


Morrison: What is important is I have a job for you two. Cause the rent ain't free.




Dante: Score for Dante! I'm up one.


Vergil: Where did you learn to count? We're even.


Dante: You know... I'm starting to think this is never gonna end.


Vergil: Maybe. We got plenty of time.


Vergil: Don't you dare say it--!


Dante: Jackpot!



====THE END====
