Pre Dark Slayer

Slash Dimension C, one of the Dark Slayer moves in Devil May Cry 4.

The Dark Slayer Style is Vergil's personal style in Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition, and one of Dante's styles in Devil May Cry 4. As a warrior fallen from grace, Vergil can use the power of darkness to obtain new weapons and skills by leveling the style.[1] The style itself performs much like Dante's Trickster Style.[2]

In Devil May Cry 4, Dante obtains this style after receiving Yamato, but instead of being based on teleportation, it allows Dante to replicate a few of Vergil's skills with the Yamato.

GameplayEdit

With preparring 'Devil May Cry 4' s Dark Slayer Style, the player can activate Dark Slayer Style by pressing the directional pad to select any normal style, twice in a row. When Dante enters Dark Slayer, he will either when not moving, mimes slicking his hair back and shouts "Get Set!" or on the move like other styles, shout "Change!", at the same become enveloped by a purple electrical aura. When not being used, the Yamato vanishes in a puff of blue smoke. If Dante manages to sheathe Yamato he will gain a full Devil Trigger rune. Dante will hold Yamato in his hand after activating Dark Slayer and remaining idle.

In terms of going toe-to-toe, Dante uses Yamato in his own style of skills, such as preferring to smack foes with Yamato and Slash, unllike Nero and Vergil who would use ranges of just slashes, however, with Yamato, Dante is much slower and less effective with it, but will slash the same. Also, in a "dual weilding" Dante is able to deal more damage and his own "Dimensional Slashing" is much larger in the field of the battlefield compared to Vergil's Judgement Cut.
