Hints

Defeating Berial

Use Grim Grip to reel yourself close to his head and attack with your sword. Once the combos are done use Grim Grip while still in the air. When his flames are gone, jump up to his head. Grab his head with the Devil Bringer then once he lands from that use Devil Bringer again to throw and punch him. After that, run away a short distance because he will release an explosion in the area around him. Make sure to pick up Green Orbs from the destroyed buildings and roll to avoid his flame geysers and sword attack. Continue attacking in this manner and use your Charge Shot to defeat him in under a minute.

Defeating Blitzes

  • Use the following trick to defeat a Blitz as Nero. To lower the Blitz "electricity shield" quickly, use charged pistol shots with Devil Trigger activated. The most effective method seems to be as follows.
  • Charge a shot.
  • Go into Devil Trigger.
  • Release the shot, maybe a few more.
  • Turn off Devil trigger, and repeat.
This will quickly give you Super Smokin Stylish before he has even dropped his shield. This will work even with a level 1 Charge Shot, and should be much easier if you have level 3. Once his shield his gone, use Devil Trigger again, and use the Devil Bringer to devastate him. Three throws should be enough to send him into "red mode". Once he goes red he will try to grab you and suicide himself to seriously drain your life, or kill you. Shoot normal shots at him to get more Smokin Stylish points at this point, and finish him off handily.
  • Use the following trick to defeat a Blitz as Dante. Use Royal Guard style along with the Gilgamesh gauntlets. While the Blitz is in his yellow "electricity shielded" state, get close to him and press [Melee] + [Style] repeatedly and quickly. You will be performing a punch and canceling it with a Royal Block very quickly. Think of the [Style] move as the attack. Try to constantly use [Melee] + [Style] repeatedly. You will raise the letter grade of your style meter with each hit, and quickly lower the electric shielding. You are basically hitting the shield yourself, then blocking that hit so fast that you cannot see it happen. Again, just press [Melee] + [Style] at the same time. This may be somewhat tricky at first, but eventually becomes easy. Once his shield is lowered, quickly switch to swordmaster style. Use Real Impact uppercut with the Gilgamesh gauntlets at least twice. Throw in a Kick 13 if time permits, and/or a Shocking. He will go into his overdriven "Red Mode". Quickly switch to Lucifer and perform Bondage. If done correctly you should finish him off and get a huge stylish ranking out of one Blitz.

Defeating Dante

When fighting Dante in the Dante Must Die mode, it is easier to fight him if you jump in the air and use the buster the bring him up to you. Then, use the grab attack. Be careful; he might block and try to hit you.

Defeating Echidna

Devil Trigger and use Roulette Spin on her head. If she turns into a spider, power up and use Buster on her egg sack. If she grasps her forehead in pain use Buster, the tap [Exceed] to give the attack extra power.

Defeating Sanctus

  • Use the following trick to defeat Sanctus inside of Sparda in Mission 20. While Sanctus is airborne in his shield, get close and break it with sword attacks just like earlier in the game. However, he will sometimes block with the Sword of Sparda. When he does this, use the uppercut technique to break his guard. If you are skilled you should use the Devil Trigger while he is in the air to use a special combo to force him to the ground. If you fail to do the air combo just let him fall to the ground. You may be able to get a few sword-based shots in but do not try to rely on this because he may escape. At this point, use the uppercut in Devil Trigger form, if at all possible. Afterwards he will go back to being airborne again, in which case you should drop the Devil Trigger. After you have broken his health down to about the 10% to 15% mark, he will use a charging sword attack (however, if you have perfected the aforementioned combo, you may bypass this). Defeating him requires timing. At the precisely the correct moment of his charge towards you, uppercut and break his guard. Again, as soon as it is broken get into the Devil Trigger uppercut and finish him off. In the second battle against Sanctus, as the False Prophet, timing is once again crucial. All you must do is uppercut his attacks away.
  • To easily drop Sanctus' Shield during either of his encounters, make sure you have a full Exceed gauge (Ex-act or Max-act helps). Approach Sanctus, jump, and perform an Ex Calibur. If the full combo hits, his shield will be down. You can now proceed to make him fully vulnerable to attack using the above method, or however desired.

Defeating Sparda

Sparda can be knocked on his butt by using the Pandora's PF398 Revenge technique. With Pandora equipped, hold X  Xbox 360  or Square  PlayStation3  and make two complete circles with the Left Analog-stick and fire at Sparda. It may require two shots but he will fall as though you used the stationary cannon.

Defeating Demonic Bosses

You can use Nero's Devil Bringer to defeat Demonic Bosses. Before you daze any demonic Boss, get your Devil Trigger as high as possible. As soon as the enemy is dazed, hit the Devil Trigger and use the uppercut on the enemy. Using it in different areas of the enemy's body results in a nice combo.

Mission 3: Easy orbs

Complete mission 3, then play it again. At the start, run past the statue into the first hall. Kill enemies to collect experience points and orbs. Then, find the hallway with a wooden wall. Break through the wall to find a crystal. Break the crystal to collect 1,000 orbs then exit the mission. Repeat this to collect as many orbs as desired.

Mission 7: Easy orbs

Use the following trick to collect 4,300 Red Orbs in about twenty seconds. At the start of the mission, destroy the rocks to the left of you. Proceed into the tunnel and also destroy the rocks that are there. You will see the big red crystal near the Secret Mission. In order to get the most orbs, start with the Stinger then immediately go into Devil Trigger mode and quickly mash away. Once done, press Start, go to "Systems" then "Retry Mission". This is the easiest way to get a lot of Red Orbs in a short amount of time.

Board game: Easy orbs

  • Use the following trick to win the board game in the Game Room. The number showing on the die before it is rolled is the number that will show up if you count properly. For example, if you would like to roll a "3", wait for "3" to show up on the top of the dice. Count six rotations before you strike the die, and you will roll a "3".
  • Use Buster on the die (without locking target on the die). The number which is visible on top of the die before using Buster will always be set to the same number after punching the die into the air. Because you will only get the die rolling part with Nero, you do not have to worry about Dante.

Easy health from Faults

Later in the game you can occasionally see Fault enemies appear from underneath. They will "warp" up from the ground and try to ensnare your character. If you kill a Fault you will always be rewarded with a free health orb.

Easy Combat Adjudicator for Dante

To get the stylish points for the Combat Adjudicator (machine that measures style) with Dante, use the Lucifer weapon. Execute the Pin-Up repeatedly. Hold R1 + Forward + Triangle  PlayStation3  or RB + Forward + Y  Xbox 360  to execute the move.

Dark Slayer style

This style is for Dante only. To use it, press the D-pad in any direction twice. He will say "Get Set" to confirm correct entry. The attacks are really powerful, but kind of slow.
and

Lady

In the alternate scene when you see Dante reading the magazine, you can see Lady posing on the left side of the magazine.

Scarecrows

In the alternate scene with Dante reading the magazine, look in the background of the Devil May Cry. You can see scarecrows hung on the wall.

Launch jump

Nero or Dante can perform a launch jump off of ledges that sends them flying far forward much further than a normal jump. This can be used to collect secrets or as a shortcut. To perform it, stand facing a nearby ledge that you can jump off from. Perform the Streak or Stinger attack (while locked up, press [Up] + [Attack]) and Nero or Dante will dash forward. The ledge cuts off the attack animation and will instead launch your character far forward.

Control cinematic views

 PlayStation3    Xbox 360  During any cinematic, the camera can be controlled, giving you alternate views of what you are seeing. To move the camera around, use the Right Analog-stick. Press R2  PlayStation3  or RT  Xbox 360  to zoom in or out.

Glitches

Royal Guard style

This requires a fully leveled up Royal Guard style. You must posses the ability called "Dreadnaught". Dreadnaught is performed by holding RB + Left Analog-stick Away + B. This ability encases you in invulnerable armor, based upon how full your royal gauge is. You can still perform Dreadnaught with an empty royal gauge and get about five seconds of invulnerability. You will also suffer limited movement during a Dreadnaught. Perform the Dreadnaught and at the precise moment it runs out, switch your melee weapon (RT). If done fast enough you will keep the Dreadnaught armor and be able to move freely. Note: You are still fully able to take damage, as well as move normally.
