|Agni & Rudra
|Appearances||Devil May Cry 3|
- Rudra: "We must entertain our guest."
- Agni: "You're right. We have to be gracious hosts."
- — Agni and Rudra, Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening
Twin Demon gatekeepers of Temen-ni-gru sealed away by Sparda, Agni & Rudra the Firestorm are a pair of living swords, swung by demon hosts, searching for an owner worthy of their power. They are the boss of Mission 5 in Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening.
Dante comes across the brothers in the Firestorm Chamber. They are at first cordial to Dante, discussing how to be "gracious hosts", but when he demands to be let through their gate, they attack. After Dante defeats them, they ask to be taken with him as Devil Arms, and Dante agrees on the condition that they remain quiet...which they repeatedly fail to uphold, for which they are punished.
They are adept at fighting together, though they can be tricked into hurting each other. However, once one host is defeated, the other will go for the fallen sword, allowing him to become more powerful.
In Hinduism, Agni is the god of fire and Rudra is the god of the storm, thought to be an early form of Shiva. Agni is also thought to be the accepter of sacrifices while Rudra is also thought to be a god of diseases.
- Although not physically appearing in Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies, one of the characters, Trucy Wright, suggests that Apollo Justice and Phoenix Wright be named Agni and Rudra respectively, and suggests that they should be a pair of jokers. This is a clear reference to Agni and Rudra as well as their jokey nature.
