Doppelganger the Deathvoid is a Demon composed of shadow that takes the same shape of his foes by refracting light in various directions.[2] He is encountered as a boss in Devil May Cry 3 and Devil May Cry HD Collection. In the HD version, the player will achieve the award "Step Into The Light" for defeating him.


When in an area with darkness, the demon resembles that of Dante in his Devil Trigger form. However, Doppelganger resembles more of Dante's normal form when exposed to the light.[1]


Nothing much is shown of Doppelganger's personality. When defeated by Dante, however, the demon accepts its defeat and allows Dante to absorb him without hesitation.[1]


Arrow Main article: Mission 17

As a being of shadow, it must be paralyzed by shining light on it. This stuns him and leaves him open for attack. Otherwise, he is invulnerable.


Before Devil May Cry 3Edit

Due to an unknown circimstance, Doppelganger came to reside within the Temen-ni-gru as it was sealed away by Sparda.[1]

Devil May Cry 3Edit

When Dante first enters the Apparition Incarnate, Doppelganger encounters the Devil Hunter and refracts its form to resemble Dante. Dante further mocks him for trying to "ask [him] some questions", saying that he's already answered them to himself and battles the demon. After defeating Doppelganger, Dante receives its soul as an attack Style.[1]

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Doppelganger is a formidable demon, being able to bend and refract light to take the form of an opponent as well as mimic some of its fighting moves; for Dante specifically it mimics the Rebellion, his hand-to-hand combat and some moves from Beowulf (rendered as darkness instead of light), and the Trickster style's Dash. Uniquely, Doppelganger can also shoot dark energy from its palms or produce a powerful dark energy attack from the ground, in a fashion identical to how Dante uses Beowulf. While in the darkness, it is invulnerable to attacks. Despite its formidable status, however, the demon was no match for Dante.[1]

Media AppearancesEdit

Devil May Cry 3 mobileEdit

In the Devil May Cry 3 mobile game, Doppelganger appears as one of two bosses, the other being Vergil. Doppelganger has the same animations and general appearance as Dante, but is colored black.


  • A second player can control the doppelganger by pressing start on a second controller (though the camera only follows Dante). This can be achieved permanently through use of Dante's infinite devil trigger costume.
