About me: Dante is one of the sons of the Dark Knight Sparda and the main protagonist of the Devil May Cry series.
As seen in the beginning of the series, Dante is incredibly flippant, casually mouthing off to even the most powerful of demons, and he generally enjoys showing off and taunting his adversaries as often as he can. Dante also displays a fearless, almost disinterested attitude towards incredibly dangerous situations, such as assuming Trish simply had to use the bathroom after crashing through his office's front door on a motorcycle, being attacked by the Seven Hells in his office, being swallowed by Echidna, and effortlessly shrugging off wounds such as a head shot or impalement numerous times, the latter of which happens quite frequently for the Devil Hunter.
While maturing as time goes by, Dante never loses his care-free, devil-may-care attitude, except in Devil May Cry 2. He can be serious when the situation calls for it, but still maintains an overall laid-back demeanor during tense situations, and is never without a witty taunt or comeback. Although seemingly shown at times to be uncaring or callous, Dante maintains a very strong sense of justice like his father, and prefers to fight fairly, never fighting humans or opponents weaker than him. He can be counted on to do the right thing, even if he makes humorously cynical quips about it the entire time.
Unusually, while he has displayed discomfort with his own demonic side, only coming to accept it following the events of Devil May Cry 3, Dante has little qualms about accepting demons that choose the side of good and admires their desire to be human, such as Trish and Bradley. Though Dante is quoted as believing that "Humans are often worse than demons" in the anime, he refuses to kill full-blooded humans for any reason, believing it would make him no better than any Devil, be it human or demon.
In addition, Dante values family and friends very highly. He cared deeply for his mother and, despite their differences and conflicting ideals, for his brother, Vergil. Even after their intense duels and conflicts in Devil May Cry 3, Dante still tries to prevent Vergil from willingly falling off the edge of the Human World into the Demon World, and goes so far as to cry over losing him. While he says little about his father, Sparda, over the course of the series, Dante has been shown to clearly maintain a level of respect for him. While bitterly claiming that "[he doesn't] have a father" in his first fight with Vergil in 3, he grows to respect him as the game goes on, proudly claiming in his final duel with his brother that not only do they carry Sparda's blood, but his soul as well. He also makes a humorous comment towards Arkham, smugly claiming that his father wasn't as hideous as his twisted form, citing his own physical appearance as proof.
Dante also enjoys fighting, shown when he restrains himself from using his full potential. In Devil May Cry 4, he was clearly going easy on his nephew Nero in their first confrontation, soundly defeating him in their second clash. In the anime, Dante gets bored with fighting weak opponents and only finds entertainment in fighting strong opponents who will give him a challenge. Dante's enjoyment of fighting was further emphasized in his pre-battle banter with Echidna, asking her if she agreed with him that "a fight every now and then makes life more interesting".
Despite Dante's handsome appearance, he often has terrible luck with women. Currently claimed by Vallina Drac.
Ooc; Woooo! Hello there. ... Are you going to throw a party now? Don't forget the pizza, extra pepperoni! Oh, oh, oh! Don't forget the citrus soda and the lava cakes and the hot wings and and and and and -Rikku.exe has stopped working-
*Ahem* thank you for adding me. I hope the two of us become good friends and I'm eager to discuss something with you.
// Just like the idea of her attacking him in a hug head on, it's such a Danyo (Gotta have that ship name at this rate. ;D) thing to make it extreme. But yeah, I can imagine it leaving her embarrassed once the adrenaline shot cools down when they finish the job. //
// I'm legit laughing my ass off thinking about how that would go down. xD But I'm loving it. I can also imagine them prior to proceeding the operation, he has to drill those songs into her head since one; Rock music is non-existant in her world prior to meeting him, two; Language barrier with the lyrics. But I'll be sure to check them out tonight. But I'm definitely into that idea. Also the disguises.//
Hi there! It was no problem at all! Thanks so much for adding me. Oh, I agree! The entire series is underappreciated. It's disappointing just how sparse the characters within it are. But I'm hoping others begin to rear their heads.
I agree with you 100%. Although I did enjoy LoK, ATLA was just hands down the best. I mean, I love Katara and whatnot... But the fire nation? They were all just hearteyes for dayyysss.
I've heard about it, but unfortunately haven't had the pleasure of seeing it. Is it any good?
