Luce & Ombra (Ita: "Light & Shadow") are a pair of personally customized[1], semi-automatic pistols once wielded by the Dark Knight Sparda, and they are designed to rapidly fire bullets.[2]


They are used with the "Legendary Dark Knight Dante" costume in Devil May Cry, and by Trish. They also appear in Devil May Cry 2, Devil May Cry: The Animated Series, and Devil May Cry 4.


Like Ebony & Ivory, Luce & Ombra fire at the same speed and can merge the bullets with their own user's energy. This is all the appearances of their power demonstrated below.

In Devil May Cry, Luce & Ombra fire at the same speed as Ebony & Ivory (such as in Easy Automatic Mode, they keep the machine gun-esque function by holding the firing button, however in further difficulties must be done manually, thus making it a challenge to beat enemies that are faster or slower). They also retain the ability to charge up blue electrical energy, to then infuse with bullets.

In Devil May Cry 2, Luce & Ombra are lacking with movesets and even though function the same as Ebony & Ivory, in Trish's hands she depends on infusing yellow energy instead of energy Dante uses.

In Devil May Cry 3, Luce & Ombra now function exactly like Ebony & Ivory making it seem "easier" to beat foes, but due to not altering the movesets.

In its recent appearance Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, Luce & Ombra retain the function that Trish demonstrated in the second game, including the moves and yellow energy.


The guns are primarily modeled after the Colt M1911 design, and are quite similar to the Ebony & Ivory, but with fewer customizations.

  • Both weapons use customized slides and extended frames that lend them a very angular appearance.
  • Both weapons have been modified with short-pull triggers, target sights, beavertail grip safeties, and slam-pads on their magazines. Also, both have an additional decock lever mounted on the slide (similar to the Polish Vis).
  • As with Ebony & Ivory, the left-handed weapon (Ombra) uses a custom slide. The extractor and ejection port have been reversed, thus causing the spent shells to be expelled away from the shooter when used left-handed.
  • "Luce & Ombra" is engraved in cursive on the outward sides of both pistols, next to the image of a smiling half-moon/half-sun face.
  • Both handguns are outfitted with ergonomic wood grips. In the middle of the grip panels are portraits of Victorian women, just as on the Ebony & Ivory; as befits their names, Ombra's is dark-haired, and Luce's is fair-haired. Oddly enough, an engraving addressed to Dante is also carved into both sets of guns.

Viewtiful JoeEdit

Trish uses the Luce & Ombra as her long-ranged weapons in the Viewtiful Joe series.

Trish uses the Luce and Ombra as her firearms in Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.



  • These guns replace Ebony & Ivory in Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 3 when you use the Sparda costume. However, they are not renamed Luce & Ombra in the third game, but still resemble the two pistols.
  • Sparda using these weapons is ironic as The Order of the Sword & Vergil thought that guns were dishonorable.
