Dante is one of the main protagonists of the Devil May Cry series, and a playable character in all entries of the franchise. The son of a benevolent demon and human woman, Dante works as a private investigator and demon hunter dedicated to protecting humanity from demonic forces.

Characterization[edit | edit source]

Concept[edit | edit source]

Dante was named after Italian poet Dante Allighieri, whose work The Divine Comedy is a recurring source of inspiration for the franchise.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Dante's appearance varies across games, but a number of elements remain constant. He is tall and muscular, with blue eyes and silver-white hair. His attire generally consists of a red trench coat at the very least, with red being a prominent color in his design.

Dante's facial modeling in Devil May Cry 5 was provided by British model Adam Cowie.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Dante is cocky and wise-cracking, often taunting his enemies in battle.
