A Combat Adjudicator is a special statue which appears in Devil May Cry 3 and Devil May Cry 4. It rates the stylishness of the attacks upon it, and once the player reaches a specific Style Rank, signified by the number of lit flames on the statue, the statue will break and reward the player with a Blue Orb Fragment. In Devil May Cry 3, once the statue is broken it will not reappear within that save file, while in Devil May Cry 4 it will reappear, but only release Red Orbs.

Devil May Cry 3Edit

Ancient Combat Adjudicator

The Beowulf Combat Adjudicator at the God-cube Chamber from Devil May Cry 3.

In Devil May Cry 3, the Combat Adjudicator can only be "moved" with a specific Devil Arm, signified by the color of its flames. If the player tries to attack with the wrong weapon, they will be deflected, and the statue will give them a riddle as to which weapon they should use. As Dante and Vergil are only playable on separate save files, their Combat Adjudicators appear in the same locations, but require different weapons. While Style abilities can be used to attack the Adjudicator, pressing the style button while too near the statue will frequently cause the player to examine the statue instead.

Devil May Cry 4Edit

Combat Adjudicator

A Combat Adjudicator from Devil May Cry 4.

In Devil May Cry 4, the Combat Adjudicator can only be attacked with the correct character, signified by the color of its flames.[9] Blue flames show that only Nero can break the statue, while red flames indicate Dante. In a noticeable change from Devil May Cry 3, these Adjudicators are semi-mobile, allowing the use of more complex aerial combos in breaking them.

Trivia Edit

  • The Combat Adjudicator is the only 'enemy' that acts differently to Nero's snatch ability. It cannot be pulled in and Nero cannot perform Hell Bound on it.
