This is the fifth mission in the game, Devil May Cry. This requires speed and strategy as Dante will need to exit the tower.


You begin in the courtyard where you fought Nelo. Now you have exactly 3 minutes to use it to unlock the door on the bottom of the tower-like room inside the castle (where you rode that large elevator to get the Death Sentence).

You must battle a Shadow to get back inside, so kill it quickly! After Shadow is dead, ignore the stuff it drops and focus on jumping to the highest area where you fought Nelo Angelo and then jumping down that hole.

Enter the double doors to the bedroom and head through the other door to that tall room. Jump all the way down to the bottom and use the Melancholy Soul on the thin door by the foot of the staircase. Use it before the 3 minute timer ends and you end the mission!

What if the Melancholy Souls run out of energy?

Instead of reloading the game, go to the second level door in the fountain room. Remember the room where you pushed the tombstone? Past it is a Prisoner Statue.

Use it to recharge the Melancholy Soul and try for the exit door again. When you leave, a Shadow will be in the Fountain Room. You must kill that Shadow to get back into the tower-like room.

If you can't kill the Shadow in time, you will need to recharge the Melancholy Soul again and try it until you can get to the door in under three minutes. Once you enter through the blue door at the bottom of the stairs, the mission ends!
