—Trish, Devil May Cry
Trish is a demon created by Mundus who strangely resembles Dante's mother, Eva. After his defeat by the hands of Dante, she later joined Devil May Cry and became a devil hunter alongside him. During her stint within the Order of the Sword, she went under the alias "Gloria".
She is a major character in the series, although she was originally one of Dante's enemies. Trish appears as a playable character in Devil May Cry 2 and Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, although she is present in Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 4 as well.
As a puppet of Mundus, Trish was originally cruel and uncaring, but after Dante saved her, she began to develop emotions towards him, and eventually sacrificed herself to save him from Mundus's attack. After being revived, Trish joined Dante at his shop, and showed excitement at being his partner. By the time of the animated series, she has gone off on her own, and seems to enjoy playfully picking on Dante and giving him trouble, and although she rejoins him in Devil May Cry 4 she has basically the same habits, and additionally seems to enjoy pizza, like Dante, though with a different behavior, such as sitting with her legs over one and the other on dantes table, while sitting upright, licking her fingers after finishing the piece she got from the pizza box, doing a stereotypical girly thing, reapplying lipstick while looking into the reflective blade of Sparda, similar to a vanity mirror. She also executes taunts, such as mentioning "May the Savior be with you." until she chuckles and mentions "As if.", and showm to be lovey-dovey with demons by blowing an explosive kiss.
While disguised as Gloria, Trish is very flirtatious and sexually teasing.
Trish appears as a secret character which can be unlocked by beating Hard mode with Dante and Lucia. She can be used in both Dante's and Lucia's missions, and she wields Sparda, Luce & Ombra, and Nightmare-γ as her weapons. She also retains her ability to shoot lightning.
Trish comes to Devil May Cry one night to meet Dante. There she attempts to electrocute him, but with his demon powers he easily overpowers her. Trish is defeated, but tells Dante that she needs his help. She takes him to Mallet Island, where Mundus is planning to open the gate to the Underworld to cross over to the Human World. It is eventually revealed that Trish was actually created by Mundus as a lure to kill Dante in the island. After betraying Dante during a fight with Nightmare and trying to kill him, Dante still saves her life from falling rocks. Trish is deeply moved by this, although she still returns to her master. Later, the demon king then tries to kill Dante by using a very powerful beam from his third eye. However, Trish returns Dante's favor and sacrifices herself instead, pushing Dante out of the beam's path and allowing herself to be struck instead. Before following Mundus into the Underworld, and believing Trish to be dead, Dante utters the famous line, "I should have been the one to fill your dark soul with light!" He then leaves her with the Sparda and the Perfect Amulet. Later, cornered by a heavily mutated Mundus, Dante hears his mother's voice, and Trish bursts through the wall to aid him. She lends him her power and Mundus is defeated. With Mundus destroyed, Dante and Trish embrace, and she begins to cry. Dante tells Trish that she has become human, because "Devils never cry". It is implied that she works with Dante at the newly-renamed Devil Never Cry.
Trish is a freelance devil hunter, having left Devil May Cry to do her own work for a while. She comes to visit Dante from time to time, leading her first appearance in the show to a fight with Lady when Lady accepts a job to kill a lightning demon. As it turns out, Lady's client was a demon himself and wanted to get rid of Trish because she was hunting him. Trish and Lady end up getting along and place Dante into further debt by buying expensive clothing and leaving a reluctant Dante with the bill. Later in the show, Trish does some investigative work from time to time to help Dante in his jobs. During the final fight with Abigail, she and Lady fight against hordes of lesser demons as Dante faces Abigail. Dante extends to her an open invitation to return to Devil May Cry whenever she wants near the end of Episode 4, which she declines at first, and apparently accepted after the series. At the end of the series, she departed with Dante and Lady to a job outside the city, in which she remarked "the winner gets the reward."

—Gloria reveals that she is actually Trish, Devil May Cry 4
By this time, Trish is seemingly living with Dante and working alongside him as a Devil Hunter. When Lady informs them about the actions of the Order of the Sword, Trish takes the Sparda to Sanctus while posing as "Gloria", and is made an Executive of the Holy Knights. She uses this placement to spy on the Holy Knights, but because of her looks and rapid promotion, she enjoyed a somewhat negative reception by the other members of the Order. She discards her disguise once Dante and Nero reach the Order's headquarters, and after the Savior is activated, she goes to evacuate the island's townspeople while Dante attacks the giant statue.
After Sanctus and the Savior are defeated, Trish returns to the Devil May Cry shop with Dante. When Lady brings in another case, all three of them go off to face it together.
Powers and Abilities
Trish is extremely proficient and capable in unarmed combat. During her first meeting with Dante, she was able to fight Dante with a combination of hand-to-hand combat and her power over electricity, having temporarily downed him for a bout. Her combat style seems to most rely of melee attacks combined with the power of electricity in which she can utilize effortlessly. She has some degree of superhuman strength as she is able to lift a motorcycle and throw it at Dante. She also has superhuman speed, agility and endurance similar to Dante.
During her stint as Gloria while undercover within the Order of the Sword, she wields two small blades, each of which folds in on itself. She appears to keep them tucked in the back of her thigh-high boots when they are not in use. She was shown to be extremely skilled in their usage and was capable of easily decimating a large number of Scarecrows.
Her notable demonic power is the power to control yellow lightning. In addition, she is able to hitch a ride on one of Lady's rockets and amplifiy its power at the same time while fighting Abigail. Like most demons, she has a considerable healing factor, healing from a bullet graze in a few seconds. In her non-canon appearance in Marvel vs Capcom 3 shows Trish capable of placing magic "mines" on both the ground and air, the groundbound ones launching a lightning bullet when in close proximity and the airborne ones stunning her enemies.
Appearances in Other Media
Trish appears in an alternate universe where the world is ruled by demons. She is still part of Mundus' army, serving as his general, using Alastor as her weapon of choice. She leads a legion of demons against the rebellion led by Shadow. Due to events transpiring differently, she does not defect and is killed by Dante in the war, though he laments on having done so.
Trish makes an appearances as a replacement for Sylvia in Dante's scenario. Then she reappears as an unlockable costume for Sylvia in the PSP version of Red Hot Rumble.
Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds
She is a playable character in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, wielding Sparda and Luce & Ombra. She has access to her Devil powers as well as moves such as the Round Trip. Trish's theme is a remix of Lock & Load, Dante's alternate fighting theme from the first game. Her alternate outfits include a red outfit with white hair, based on Dante, a white costume with silver hair, based on her alter ego, Gloria and a blue costume based on Sylvia from the Viewtiful Joe series. In Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Trish gains three more color scheme, an orange sheen, a pink one and a Vergil-themed scheme. Her Gloria color scheme becomes a full-fledged DLC outfit.
SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters DS
Trish is a character card in SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighter DS.
Trish appears as an unlockable icon in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. To unlock players must reach Rank 12 with Dante.
- In her appearances in the Viewtiful Joe games, Trish is always seen wearing Dante's Amulet as part of her choker. Why this is done is unknown.
- In Devil May Cry 2, both sides of Dante's coin are engraved with Trish's silhouette.
- According to Hideki Kamiya, the logo on the Devil May Cry shop is just a "cool girl", and in-universe is not meant to represent Trish.
- If you make a fresh save file of Devil May Cry on your PS2 memory card, and click on your memory card options; the save file is of a chibi version of Trish. If you attempt to delete the save file Trish puts her hand on her forehead and shakes her head in disappointment. If you copy the file she'll pump one arm in the air in excitement. If you actually copy the data to another memory card, Trish will start dancing while it's copying to the new memory card.
- While Trish possesses the power of Devil Trigger, it does not change her shape. Hideki Kamiya, the DMC series creator, suggested that the Devil Trigger form seen in Devil May Cry 2 may not be her true Devil form.
- The relationship between Trish and Dante is often interpreted by fans to be romantic in nature, however; Kamiya denies this is the case.
- In the Screw Attack DBX battle, Trish battles Jeanne when they fell off the clock tower. However, unfortunately Trish died when Sparda came back to her and mindlessly slashed her in half. This grousome fate may be a reference to the swords power, as its uncontrollable and highly dangerous. As Sparda had a reason to seal it. Also there was no information to prove if Trish had the skills to win in comparison to Jeannes.
