Unlike the usual world rescue scenes, Devil May Cry 5 is the crazy family story of Dante’s brothers and sisters.
To understand what the Devil May Cry 5 storyline is about, let’s talk about this series’s timeline because this part 5 is about four years away from approximately four years. When the Devil May Cry 5 was released, Capcom announced it would change the game’s timeline slightly when rearranging the order.
Based on the time of the characters’ appearance in all five sections, the fans have arranged the timeline up to the time of the Devil May Cry 5 plot as follows:
– Devil May Cry 3> 1> 2> 4> 5.
The Devil May Cry 2 part is completely lost in the series because it is quite paradoxical, considering the sequence of appearances and strings are entirely unrelated to part 4 (in part 2, Dante went to hell and didn’t know how the hell to crawl on the ground in Part 4. Therefore many people think that we can put Devil May Cry 2 aside and consider it an “unrelated” part. In fact, with the Devil May Cry 5 story, we do not need to care about it. Part 2 is fine.
Experience the Dead Space storyline through video – P.2 The development of the Dead space storyline is getting more intense when many unexpected events have happened to make Isaac’s journey of survival increasingly difficult.
For those who first learn the story Devil May Cry 5, it probably will be slightly aching brain with the main cast as Dante or Nero. The game also has a synthetic short on developments titles DMC in the article Hey, next, let’s talk a little bit about how the timeline in a particular series.
First, let’s talk about the origin and birth of the main character in the whole series is Dante. In the olden days, there was a war between humanity and Hell (headed by Lord Mundus). It played. The long school lasted for years with countless catastrophic consequences only until a demon under Mundus named Sparda betrayed his master, siding with humans to end this meaningless war.
Sparda defeated Mudus, sealed the portal between Hell and the human world. His name was worshiped and called forever by the nickname “Legendary Dark Knight”.
Two thousand years after the Mundus incident, Sparda silently reappears and marries a mortal woman named Eva. To prove his love, he gave his wife a necklace that was the key to open it—the portal to Mundus.
Sparda and Eva have two twin sons, Dante and Vergil (Vergil is his brother). Eva then divided her necklace with two children. Sparda’s fate after his two children’s birth is not mentioned, Sparda also briefly lived with his family, but later, he died somewhere unknown. At the same time that the seal of Mudas’ hold after 2 thousand years has weakened, the Lord of Hell has sent his subordinates to earth to seek and revenge on Sparda.
The demons attacked Eva’s mother’s mansion and engulfed it in flames. Eva hides Dante in the closet and searches for Vergil (who was playing in the backyard) in desperation. Demons attack Vergil, but thanks to that, he has awakened his demonic powers. Even Vergil uses the Yamato sword to kill them all. Devil May Cry 5 explains that Vergil thought that his mother abandoned her to save Dante because of this incident. It became a huge ghost that covered his whole life.
– Here, talk a little about the brothers Dante’s typical weapons (Rebellion) and Vergil (Yamato). They are initially Sparda’s weapons with opposing power. Simultaneously, Rebellion can unite the strength between the children, people, and demons, then Yamato can cut off space and separate the human and the devil in an outer being. The rebellion was given to Dante, and Yamato was given to Vergil, which became the primary weapon throughout the brothers in all five series.
Now come to the first version of Devil May Cry 3. At this time, Dante has become an unruly young man and has a profession of bamboo. One day Dante receives word that his lost brother Vergil is still alive, even planning to open the gates of hell, believing that it will help him get more of Sparda’s power – which is A real demon. Vergil got the help of Arkham – a fanatic scholar with the doctrine from hell, that he gave Vergil a lot of information in this.
At this time, Vergil has awakened his demonic power, but Dante is not yet, so he cannot fight Vergil. In tracking Vergil, Dante also meets Lady – the daughter of Arkham, who is on her way to stop her father. When the two brothers meet again for the first time, Dante is pierced by the Vergil with the Rebellion itself. Still, this action accidentally causes Dante’s blood to seep into the Rebellion and thereby awaken his evil power.
Later, the brothers Dante – Vergil also realized that Arkham was the last jerk. He took a part of Sparda’s power from the Force Edge sword and turned into a giant demon. Dante and Vergil team up to kill Arkham, but soon they continue to fight for the Force Edge sword. Dante defeated his brother, but at the last moment, Vergil himself jumped into hell. After closing the gate, Dante and Lady returned home and opened the “Devil May Cry” shop, hunting down the remaining demons.
On a typical day, Dante was suddenly visited by a woman whose identity resembles her mother’s name, Trish. Trish tells Dante about the return of the demon lord Mundus and hires him to stop it. Trish is a demon under Mundus, with the task of seducing Dante to the designated place to kill him.
Upon reaching this island, Dante met a particular demon named Nelo Angelo with a power not inferior to his own. Nelo Angelo is a different entity from Vergil. When he falls to hell in Part 3, Vergil meets Mundus and is controlled by him, taking a separate identity to kill Dante. The last time Dante defeated Nelo Angelo, they regained the second piece of the lost necklace when merged. It transformed the Force Edge into the final form – the strongest ultimate sword Sparda had each used.
Trish later revealed that he was Mundus’s subordinate to lure Dante to his death. Initially, Dante was angry and told Trish to stay away from him. But after she was about to be killed by Mundus, Dante tried to stop him. In the fight with Mundus, Dante was defeated, but Trish jumped out to defend the finishing blow for him in the end. Suffering, angry, and torn by internal emotions, Dante awakens his final form just like Sparda and repels Mundus.
In the final battle, Dante has once again defeated Mundus and sealed him. Dante and Trish return together, becoming partners in the new store, which has now changed its name to “Devil Never Cry” – meaning Trish had once cried when saving Dante, which is a sign that she was part human because “the devil never cried”.
In Devil May Cry 4, we have a new character named young Nero – son of Vergil. Vergil himself did not know he had a child. He knew a certain unknown woman and gave birth to this son. Nero did not know what his father should be able to say. This family is a bit badass.
Nero and his lover (Kyrie) work at the Order of the Sword – a cult of Sparda, they have somehow managed to get the Yamato stick, but actually, its leaders take advantage of it. This cover to study evil to take over the world. Dante learns this and goes to destroy the Order of the Sword, accidentally he encounters Nero and realizes that there is something very familiar in the young man.
Nero later learns of the guild’s secret and is attacked to kill him, but fortunately, Yamato reacts to Nero’s blood and revives him (like the way Rebellion used to do with Dante). Nero awakens the power within the body, symbolizing the Sparda blood flow in the veins.
After a few more incidents, Nero and Kyrie were captured by the Sanctus cardinal to capture Sparda’s blood. Now Dante appears to rescue Nero, after which they finish off the Sanctus and end the Order of the Sword’s presence one last time. At the moment, Dante is a bit suspicious that Nero might be his nephew (Nero still doesn’t know this blood relation), but Dante doesn’t say this in the end.
Dante hands Yamato back to Yamato, and the two-part ways, continuing to use their power to destroy the remaining demons.
And that’s all you need to know about the events that took place before the Devil May Cry 5 storyline, whereby after breaking up with Dante himself, Nero also opened a new “Devil May Cry” branch. And start the life of an official demon hunter. The story of Devil May Cry 5 takes place about five years after the fourth season. At this time, a new mysterious force emerges and threatens the world and opens up a too troublesome “war family” between brothers, father, and son, this nephew.
