Dante is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He was confirmed on April 13, 2015 along with the other characters who appear in the Marvel vs. Capcom series. Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese) and Reuben Langdon (English) provide the role for Dante in this fighting game.

Description

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.

Throughout the Devil May Cry series, Dante is incredibly cocky and flippant, mouthing off to even the most powerful demons, and generally enjoys rubbing people the wrong way. He does mature somewhat as time goes by, becoming much more calm by the time of Devil May Cry 4, but never really loses this attitude. Dante is seemingly totally unafraid at all times, or is at least stoic in this way, whether being attacked by the Seven Hells in his office or being swallowed by a giant serpent demon. His brother also shares this similar calm-and-fearless disposition.

With the exception of Devil May Cry 2 (which most fans ignore anyway), Dante rarely shows any seriousness. He can be serious when the situation calls for it, but can still remain calm during such situations and is never without a witty taunt or comeback. Dante can seem at times to be uncaring or even callous, but actually has a very strong sense of justice and prefers to fight fairly. He can be counted on to do the right thing, even if he makes cynical quips about it the entire time.

Unusually, while he has issues with his own demonic side, and was at one point totally unwilling to accept its existence (going as far to say he didn't have a father). Dante has little qualms about accepting demons who choose to be good, such as Trish and Bradley. Though Dante is quoted to believe that "humans are often worse than demons" in the anime, he refuses to kill full-blooded humans.

Dante values family and friends very highly, and always hides this behind his insincere, jokey attitude. He cared deeply for his mother and, even despite their extreme differences, also cares for Vergil. Even after 3 boss fights worth of fighting over the course of Devil May Cry 3, Dante still tried to save his brother when he was falling into the Demon World, and even shed a tear over losing him, hence inspiring the name of his demon-extermination agency, Devil May Cry. As of recent, the brothers seem to be rekindling their relationship and making up for lost time and huge differences, as per canonical events of Devil May Cry 5.
