I don't understand what you mean? Why would villains like Metallo or Luthor in armor or Darkseid or Atlas hitting Superman would be a plot device? It happens all the time, and even if they don't get the upper hand after that, they do manage to hit him. Dante has a sword that cuts through everything effortlessly, so it seems reasonable to me to imagine that if he manages to hit Superman with it the way those villains have, we'll just get two half Supermen.
Are you suggesting that we shouldn't consider what happens in the stories but only the statistics or something?
And I will repeat it once again. Lady, a mere human, is able to defeat the regular demons in the DMC universe and would probably not die instantly, if she would face one of the more powerful demons. Everything we saw from the demons in the game wasn't that special. Why not? Because the powerlevels of that universe are vastly below the powerlevels of the DC universe.
Mundus as a demon king is not as powerful as most of the more powerful DC villains. Saying that Dante would cut through Superman is just stupid. It's plain stupid.
Superman gets tagged by Metallo and Lex Luthor, but it was already stated once that Superman often takes the attacks, to avoid enviromental damage. He knows that he can take it, while that doesn't apply for the others.
@SlimJ87D said:Yes, Dante in his Devil Trigger WITH Quicksilver would give him amazing speed, but he still wouldn't be able to take down Superman fast enough. You're all talking like Dante is able to dish out planet busting attacks with everything he throws at his opponents. That's not what Dante is doing at all. Additionally to that Dante does lose demonic energy when he uses his devil trigger. Also when he uses the Quicksilver. If he would use them at the same time, he would be empty in a matter of seconds and that's not enough to defeat someone as durable as Superman, who would STILL be faster than Dante. Even if Superman needs 3 seconds to circle the globe, that's more than Dante can even imagine to do. Supermans strenght combined with the additive force that comes from the increased mass of Superman after he traveled around the globe would create such a devastating impact that Dante would simply drop. Dante gets way too overrated in this thread. I'm thinkin about creating a Dante VS Bayonetta thread and look what you guys have to say there :-|
@e3zombie: Considering Dante is shown being stabbed, and shot fairly regularly I think its safe to say he doesn't have Clark's reflexes.
The only times I really saw him get hit was from Nero and he was laughing and toying with Nero. I think all the other times were just for dramatic effect. Like in DMC3 he lets all the monsters stab him and he walks around eating a pizza while they're stuck on him.
In combat he has cut bullets in mid air, shot bullets with bullets, traded sword blows with his brother that their sword strikes covered so much area it created a barrier that stopped rain from hitting them. He also performs the stinger 1000 which does 100 stabs in a few seconds, the description says he does 1000 of them but that could be a hyperbole due to the name.
People aren't arguing what I wrote above though, they're saying if you throw in his quicksilver ability and it just multiplies the ridiculous speed he already has a dozen times or more.
You watch the language. If you can not debate without insulting people, just stop logging in and look at yourself in the mirror repeating "you are right" all day.
