Sky Star

Sky Star, one of the skills from the Trickster Style.

The Trickster Style is one of Dante's four basic styles. It emphasizes quick dodges of enemy attacks[1] to gain style points. In Devil May Cry 3, Trickster is set from the Mission Start menu or Divinity Statue. In Devil May Cry 4, Trickster can be selected at any time during gameplay by pressing up on the directional pad.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3Edit

Trish and Dante both summon magical glyphs when performing a Dash in the air, similarly to the Sky Star ability of the Trickster Style.


  • Dante's Air Trick has a strong resemblance with Trick Up - a skill of Vergil's Dark Slayer Style.
  • Certain aspects of the Trickster Style first showed up in Devil May Cry 2 with the dodge commands set to the same location as the styles later were.
  • In Devil May Cry 4, when Dante swaps to Trickster style, he will shout "Trickster!" when he is stationary or shout "Trick!" when he is on the move.
