#23
Gameplan said on October 8, 2010 at 4:11 p.m.

I'm curious about Dante's move set, all I keep hearing from Capcom is that he's got the largest special move list in fighting game history. I'm wondering if he's gonna have different stances appart from Devil Trigger with different moves each. We'll soon find out :)

#24
maniacman said on October 13, 2010 at 12:45 p.m.

Would be pretty cool if Virgil was in the game too, as he is similar to Dante but uses a completely different move-set and sword (giving him diff powers) than Dante. I would be stoked...!!!

#25
SSJDante said on November 28, 2010 at 4:37 a.m.

it would be nice if dante had all of his taunts from dmc3 aswel as all of his movez :)

#26
JustJoeKim said on December 30, 2010 at 1:16 p.m.

holy begeezus thats allota moves bro

#31
Kalyx_triaD said on February 4, 2011 at 6:25 a.m.

There's some gaffs in this movelist, simple mistakes (like QCB+E is actually flight mode in DT and DP+E is Vortex). Dante also has a few more mash-cancels from H. Attack (his pistols). I will send this corrections later, not sure how you guys handle the whole movelist contributions.

#32
GodPride said on February 4, 2011 at 7:53 a.m.

Dante has a lot of moves but I wonder how of them offer similar properties if any.

#33
Idonokage said on February 4, 2011 at 8:27 a.m.

One thing that Dante lacks is blocking damage -- he has a hard time chipping away at a turtling opponent. Coupled with the fact he has no 'real' command grab he might have a hard time. I believe his effectiveness is going to hinge on the assist types of his teammates and their ability to set up ambiguous and/or unblockable situations.

#34
momoneymoe said on February 4, 2011 at 6:54 p.m.

why does he have a ton of moves

#35
rogeromega said on February 4, 2011 at 11:51 p.m.

@momoneymoe: because in the Devil May Cry games he has a bunch of weapons and fighting styles, and Capcom decided to incorporate as many as they could.

#36
TheJohns said on February 5, 2011 at 8:14 p.m.

Why are you getting so worked up about Dante having a buttload of specials? I mean, Guile only has 2, and he's been both successful and terrible over the years.

#37
earthboundkid22 said on February 8, 2011 at 10:07 a.m.

26 moves zomg

#38
Nintendeon said on February 12, 2011 at 5:46 p.m.

Look at all those moves o_o. Gonna take a while to master Dante.

#39
canabalistic999 said on February 17, 2011 at 1:20 a.m.

well if people want a combo i have a few helpful ones, they arnt basic but they arnt advanced either. For the corner combos the first part before the sky dance carries along distance to starting a little closer to than wall from mid stage works. For easy more damage but one more meter add devil trigger after the dive kick for any combo, timing gets a bit tricker but still not advanced.

Anywhere combo (1 meter, around 528,000 dam, no meter dam is 362,000):L,M,H,S,follow,M,H,QCF+L(dive kick),H,QCB+L(reverb shock),mash H, cancel into million dollars

Corner combo(1 meter, around 578,000 dam, no meter dam is 420,700):L,M,H,S,follow,L,M,H,QCF+L(dive kick),H,S,follow,M,H,QCF+H(sky dance),cancel into million dollars

Excessive corner combo(5 meter and X-factor, around 1,198,000 dam):L,M,H,S,follow,M,H,QCF+L(dive kick),Devil Trigger,H,S,follow,M,H,QCF+H,Million Dollars,X-Factor cancel, Devils Must Die

Hope this either helps someone or gives people a basis for their own combos.

#40
canabalistic999 said on February 17, 2011 at 1:26 a.m.

Sorry for the double post but i forgot to mention that a good way to set up the anywhere combo is by doing a air trick(down,down,S) hitting with a H and upon landing immediately start the combo, also works for the corner combos if your back is to the wall or getting close to the wall use this setup to switch sides so the combo can reach the wall in time.

#41
General_Awesomo said on February 22, 2011 at 11:34 a.m.

What's up with the pictures? Colors 2 and 4 are reversed. The guy that made those 2 pics made Dante face leftwards and then just reversed the pictures. That's sloppy.

#42
General_Awesomo said on February 22, 2011 at 11:51 a.m.

You can tell by looking at his hair and which side the coat has it's sleeve ripped off.

#43
xAwperatorx said on March 12, 2011 at 11:14 p.m.

People keep whining about Dante being overpowered. IMO, he's a glass cannon. I've had people who know Dante's tricks get around them to kill me. Because of his wide variety of moves, he can also change up his tactics and play many different ways, though.

I was a huge fan of the DMC series, though, so I just think he's cool as hell.

#44
MaysTheCraze said on June 24, 2011 at 6:13 p.m.

How do you get that alternate?

#45
DarkCyclone said on July 5, 2011 at 8:40 a.m.

They left out his most important move... Bold Move

#46
trajhver said on July 20, 2011 at 4:24 p.m.

pressing hard twice quick in the air makes dante shoot his guns downwards. His "chain" moves are signaled when you hear the "schwing!" noise that comes up you know you did one..

anyways just thought i would mention that because i kept doing that gun move on accident.. so spamming buttons and moves does not always work very well with dante

#47
trajhver said on July 20, 2011 at 4:30 p.m.

bold move = special + light medium or hard

makes him flip into the air, can be good to combo into for some good change up game

#48
PwnDizzle0 said on July 24, 2011 at 12:48 a.m.

Duudde!! Dante forever he is took beasstttt!!!!

#49
General_Awesomo said on December 6, 2011 at 12:42 p.m.

So yeah, the costume colors 2 and 4 used to be facing to the left and reversed. With the addition of the UMvC3 colors, they fixed this. I also like that the Capcom characters are facing right, while the Marvel character are facing left. That's neat, thanks.
