The Arcanas

The Arcanas

The Arcana are the four sacred relics in Dumary Island which were used to seal Argosax in the past. They play a large role in the storyline of Devil May Cry 2.

StoryEdit

Arius tries to obtain the Arcana in order to release Argosax, take his power, and become a god.[1][2] The Arcana are four holy relics used to seal Argosax, and by uniting them at the solar eclipse, a gate to the Demon World will open.[3]

  • The Arcana Medaglia (金貨のアルカナ Kinka no Arukana?) (Ita: "Secret Coin") is found by Lucia in a museum during the prologue.[4] After finding it, she is attacked by several Puias and is rescued by Dante.
  • The Arcana Spada (剣のアルカナ Ken no Arukana?) (Ita: "Secret Sword") is guarded by Tartarussian in the clock tower, and is found by Lucia after she defeats him.[5]
  • The Arcana Calice (杯のアルカナ Hai no Arukana?) (Ita: "Secret Cup") is guarded by Plutonian in the underground ruin, and is found by Lucia after she defeats him.[6]
  • The Arcana Bastone (杖のアルカナ Tsue no Arukana?) (Ita: "Secret Staff") belongs to Matier, and is given to Lucia after she obtains the Spada.[7]

BackgroundEdit

The Arcanas make reference to the 78-card Tarot deck used for occult purposes. The individual cards of the tarot deck are known as "Arcana". The Coin, Sword, Cup, and Staff are the four suits of the Minor Arcana, which comprise 56 cards of the total deck. The Major Arcana are the remaining 22 trump cards that have no suits associated with them, and include the Magician, which represents Arius.
