Split the article? Edit
This page is getting awefully bloated with background and history. I think it may be wise to split off much of the storyline stuff either onto its own page or to multiple story pages for each of the games. That way, we can focus on Dante, things like personality and relationships, and not the events in the games/media. --Anobi 03:39, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
Whats the connection between Dante and Dante Alligheri? Edit
Whats the reference to Dante Alligheri' s Divine comedy?
Well fist off there is his name "Dante" taken from him, then there is the color red. Dante Alighieri was often depicted wearing red in paintings of him. In the Divine Comedy, Dante was lead by the famous poet Virgil through the different levels of Hell to get to his personal salvation, Beatrice, and get to Heaven or Paradise. Dante (the game one) obviously has a brother named Vergil (who wears blue much like Virgil in paintings) who fight off demons of Hell, and Trish is similar to Beatrice (Trish being a nickname for Beatrice). I beleive I managed to hit all the points of reference, I might be missing some though. --CLARKMASTER! 18:28, January 29, 2012 (UTC)
What order does the Devil May Cry Series take place? I just saw the Dante page and it went Devil May Cry3, and Devil May Cry, Then Devil May Cry 4, and finally Devil May Cry 2, is the order?William J. Hawkins 20:58, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
- Yup, that's the order. It's wonky, but that's it :p 220.127.116.11 21:26, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
Exact Heights Edit
I've noticed that some user(s) (I haven't been keeping track,) have been adding exact height descriptions to the characters, not just the D-man, here. It's a great thing to have if they are true, but I don't remember reading anything about exact heights. Can we dig up some sources on these, and place them in reference tags? --Anobi (talk) 18:52, November 21, 2012 (UTC)
I've actually been wondering about this. Not sure how much this helps, but in MVC3, Dante is slightly shorter then Deadpool. Who in the comics is officially listed as 6'2". Just play the game, go into training mode, have Dante and Deadpool walk right up to eachother, and you'll notice even when Deadpool's feet are on the ground he's a tad taller then Dante. So I'd put Dante at 6'-6'1", if anyone else has anything to add to that, feel free
- That doesn't mean anything. All the other characters sizes seemed right. It didn't look like Dante was any taller or shorter then he is in the actual games.
- they probably use this chart http://postfiles6.naver.net/data32/2008/3/10/37/%C5%A9%B1%E2%BA%AF%C8%AF1_dmc4wp6full_phs92450.jpg?type=w2 ~~LegionZero~~ 1:41, March 7, 2013
