Dante is the main protagonist in the Devil May Cry series. He is the second son of Sparda and Eva, and the younger twin brother of Vergil. As such, he is a half-demon, half-human hybrid. Dante is a mercenary dedicated to exterminating demons, a mission he follows in pursuit of those that killed his mother and corrupted his brother.
Aside from his signature broadsword Rebellion and his two .45 caliber handguns, Ebony and Ivory, Dante makes us e of the three-headed ice nunchaku Cerberus, the fire and wind scimitars Agni and Rudra, the electric guitar Nevan, and the gauntlet-and-greaves set Beowulf. Along with these Devil Arms (featured in Devil May Cry 3) are firearms from the same game, namely Artemis, a Demon World multi-beam laser gun; Kalina Ann, a rocket launcher from DMC3's Lady and Coyote-A, a sawed-off shotgun. In his DLC the Dark Knight Sparda costume Dante uses the Force Edge instead of the Rebellion. His special moves consist of him entering Devil Trigger state, open-firing with Ebony and Ivory, and e xecuting several Stingers (forward dash stabs) using the Rebellion.
