DMC4 Drive

Drive, one of the Swordmaster moves for Rebellion.

The Swordmaster Style is one of Dante's styles in Devil May Cry 3 and Devil May Cry 4. It emphasizes mastery of different Devil Arms and maximization of their elemental power.[1] Upgrades also increase the maximum number of combos provided with the weapon.


Just like the Gunslinger Style, the Swordmaster Style functions for extending the skill and move's styles and formations of a melee weapon. It is the easiest with which to raise the Stylish Rank.

In "Devil May Cry 3", the moves are larger than depending on human-based dkills, the swords used are very large in scaled up melee attacks. The only disdvantage is that without moves, such as "Trickster" and "Quicksilver", the vulnerability of Dante is seen

In Devil May Cry 4'the Style returns, but sadly, moves are much smaller, and evened out with many weapon's. Also in the game's Automatic Mode, most of the Swordmaster combos are automatically bound with the melee button, which makes the attack controls difficult.
