|Version 1.4- 11/3/05- Contributions added from readers. Busted the main|

|Version 1.3- 8/3/05- Due to formatting complaints from readers, I have |
|padded the FAQ on both sides with 71 CPL width. If you see the padding |
|broken, it means that other info like figures may also be broken for   |
|you. Corrected lots of spelling mistakes and added contributions from  |
|readers in the Walkthrough.                                            |

|Version 1.1- 2/3/05- First complete version of the walkthrough. All    |
|missions and weapons info are now completed. I want to thank IGN       |
|mainly for providing me an incentive to write more by posting this     |
|FAQ since its 0.2 version on their site. Secondly, I acknowledge all   |
|of the readers' support through their emails. I do appreciate them a   |
|lot. Keep em' coming.                                                  |

|Version 1.0- 28/2/05- Walkthrough done up to mission 14. I can't       |
|believe how much mistakes I leave even after checking my FAQ again and |
|again. Sorry for low speed in completing the walkthrough but I believe |
|quality matters over quantity so I make the info already written       |
|perfect instead of leaving it as it is and adding new one.             |

|Version 0.6- 18/2/05- Got Japanese version from one of my friends (who |
|got it from courier), made its backup and started working over its     |
|bases. But as I couldn't backup English language and sounds so I have  |
|to work over incomplete bases. Corrected info for mission 2 and 3 (as  |
|they are slightly different from Trial Edition), and added info on     |
|Cerberus weapon and Royal Guard style. As well as corrected some minor |
|old details.                                                           |

|Combining classical melee fighting with modern long-range gun fights,  |
|Capcom released one of the best games on PS2 in 2001. Astounding       |
|graphics, hardcore gothic soundtracks, bone-chilling sound effects and |
|lightning fast action made are one of the few reasons why this game    |
|still ranks high in gamers' libraries. However with the release of its |
|sequel Devil May Cry 2, gamers were highly disappointed. Surely it had |
|bigger arenas and better moves but it was mostly blamed for its        |
|cakewalk difficulty, less focus on melee fighting, short-game time, and|
|most of all, null personality for the ass-kicking Half Man, Half Demon |
|Dante.                                                                 |
|It seems that Capcom has learnt a lot from its second part, so here we |
|are: with a brand new Devil May Cry game which promises to bring back  |
|the series the respect it gained with its first part. Better moves,    |
|arenas, enemies, soundtracks, weapons and story are one of the few     |
|things it offers. Actually being a prequel to the first part, we'll see|
|Dante's brother Vergil in the game and the story behind him            |
|transforming into the demon Nero Angelo we came to know about in DMC1. |
|After seeing many trailers for this highly anticipated game and playing|
|itís Trial Edition for almost 13 times, I decided to make this FAQ. If |
|you find anything lacking/mistaken in it please send me an email       |
|on the address provided in the Contact Information section.            |
|                                                                       |

|Gamers might recall the "Man with Guts n Honor", Nero Angelo from      |
|DMC1. They may also remember him as "Vergil", the brother Dante lost   |
|to evil long times ago. In DMC3, we find out about the events that     |
|eventually led to the transformation of Vergil into the demon. And     |
|yeah, who can forget our slashy flashy beloved demon Sparda. For       |
|those of you who haven't played any of the DMC games before,  Sparda   |
|was a powerful demon who rebelled against its own kind for the sake    |
|of the human race. Although he succeeded in his war and shook the      |
|demons from our human worlds. He had also sealed the portal to the     |
|demonic world, and thus he remained in the human world. Eventually     |
|marrying a human named "Eva" and fathering two children named "Dante"  |
|and "Vergil".                                                          |
|Now both the brothers are in their late teens. Both have extra         |
|ordinary abilities and both are blood-thirsty for each other. A        |
|mysterious man named "Arkham" is using the hatred of Vergil for Dante  |
|to revive the portal to the demonic world and thus, gaining back       |
|the demonic rule.                                                      |
|In the opening sequence, we find Arkham coming to Dante's office and   |
|telling him that his brother has sent an invitation for him. Although  |
|sending Hell demons to deal with Dante wasn't a friendly way of        |
|sending an invitation, Dante jumps in the party and makes his way to   |
|the mysterious tower that had appeared besides his office.             |
|                                                                       |

|C. Characters                                                          |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
|1)Dante                                                                |
|The son of Sparda, Dante surely realizes that he has some special      |
|abilities but he isn't yet aware of his half-demon form yet.           |
|Characterized by red overcoat and two handmade guns Ivory & Ebony.     |
|                                                                       |

|Dante's brother, though keeps faith on more honorable fighting by      |
|not using any kind of guns. Instead, highly skilled with a Samurai     |
|Sword. Vergil is willing to do anything to see Dante dead and get      |
|the memento of their mother from him. Apparently, Vergil is            |
|fascinated by evil far more than Dante. Vergil is characterized by     |
|blue overcoat and his Samurai Sword.                                   |
|                                                                       |

|Vergil's right-hand. Using Vergil's hatred against his brother to      |
|revive the demonic rule. Characterized by burnt face and multi-colored |
|eyes.                                                                  |
|                                                                       |
|4)Lady                                                                 |
|Mysterious hunter whoís job is to hunt down every demon, including     |
|Dante and Vergil. Her eyes also differ in color.                       |

|Devil May Cry 3 is by far the best game in the series. Everything      |
|including game play mechanics and graphics has been overhauled. Here   |
|are its scores:                                                        |
|                                                                       |
|Graphics:      9.0/10                                                  |
|Though you don't expect them to be like Metal Gear's, Graphics are     |
|stunning considering the insanely wide game play.                      |
|                                                                       |
|Soundtracks:   9.5/10                                                  |
|One of the main factors of the wonderful experience of the game.       |
|They blend right with the atmosphere and result in an enhanced         |
|gaming experience.                                                     |
|                                                                       |
|Storyline:     9.0/10                                                  |
|Better than both of the previous games. It was actually a good idea    |
|to introduce Dante's Awakening to us in a prequel than him going       |
|to some sucking village and saving it from demons.                     |
|                                                                       |
|Game play:      10.0/10                                                |
|One of the best games on PS2. If you are an action genre fan, you      |
|can't miss this. It actually kicks many games due to its wide          |
|range of available weapons and combos. And did I mention that you      |
|can switch any kind of weapon with just one button during the          |
|game?                                                                  |
|                                                                       |
|Controls:      9.0/10                                                  |
|Hmm...not much to say here, but they really are properly planned.      |
|But most of all, if you don't like them, you can change every bit      |
|of them.                                                               |
|                                                                       |
|Replay ability: 10.0/10                                                |
|Six styles, option of upgrading four of them style to three levels,    |
|six guns, six melee weapons and a lots of upgradeable moves.           |
|What else do you need to motivate you for playing again and again?     |
|                                                                       |
|Overall:       9.6/10                                                  |
|I already said this was one of the best games on PS2. But one word of  |
|caution: it's not cake-walk like DMC2. In fact people will forget there|
|ever was a DMC2 after playing what's a true successor of DMC series.   |
|                                                                       |

|Well, what can be simpler than that, use left analogue stick to        |
|move Dante and X to jump. Use triangle button to wield your melee      |
|weapon and square for shooting. While facing an enemy, press and hold  |
|R1 to lock-on to him, this enables quite a few more tricks. If there   |
|are multiple enemies on the screen, you can use L3 to switch target    |
|between them.                                                          |

|              If you jump towards a wall, point left analogue stick    |
|              towards it and press X again when near it, this will make|

|             [Available at Divinity Statue]                            |
|              When an enemy is on ground and you have Ivory and Ebony  |
|              selected, jump on it (this takes a little practice),     |
|              Dante will use the enemyís torso as a skate-board        |
|              to skid along the area, by pressing square button during |
|              the trick, you'll do some stylish shooting damaging      |
|              everyone nearby.                                         |

|              While in air, press triangle to slash your sword down    |
|              for a powerful blow. The more height you do it from,     |
|              the more damaging will it be.                            |
|            4)(Roll)                                                   |

|              While locked-on to an enemy, press X with combination of |
|              left analogue stick pointing to any direction to roll in |

|              When you are near a pole (such as the on in the strip    |
|              club), press triangle to swing on it. Press triangle     |
|              repeatedly to swing with more speed. After you stop      |
|              pressing triangle button, Dante will release the poll    |
|              which can be followed through a jump move.               |
|                                                                       |

|                 will be consumed during this move.                    |
|                                                                       |
|When you defeat a demon with a certain style, you gain experience. You |
|can check current experience level at equip screen (down directional   |
|button). After reaching a certain level, a style is upgraded adding    |
|new moves to it. If you want to quickly upgrade style levels, the      |
|quickest way is to replay mission 18 "Invading Hell". Wanna know why?  |
|This is because every boss you defeat adds a handy amount of experience|
|points in your bucket and you can fight almost all bosses in that      |
|single level. Approximately, you can gain 80000-90000 experience points|
|in that mission.                                                       |
|                                                                       |

|G. Devil Trigger                                                       |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
|After mission 7, Devil Trigger mode will be made available. DT Gauge's |
|circles are shown below the health bar. It allows you to transform     |
|into demonic form of Dante by pressing L1 during the game for a brief  |
|period of time. If you hold L1 while transforming into demon form, the |
|additional devil trigger gauge circles (i.e. extra circles after the   |
|first three that are added using Devil Stars at Divinity Statues or    |
|Customize Menu) will start to glow red. When you release the           |
|L1 button, those circles will be used to cast a charged transformation,|
|severely hurting nearby enemies.                                       |
|When you're in Devil Trigger mode, Dante is much more powerful than    |
|usual form and some extra commands are also made available. Once the   |
|gauge runs out, you are again in Dante's human form. You can fill the  |
|gauge again by fighting enemies or by taunting them.                   |
|                                                                       |

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
|When fighting, you'll see a bar showing up in the upper-right corner of|
|the screen. If you use different combos and tricks, the bar fills,     |
|eventually changing into the next style level. You can also fill the   |
|bars by doing a Taunt (SELECT Button) after performing a successful    |
|combo. Given below are various style levels ordered by increasing      |
|esteem.                                                                |

|B: Blast                                                               |
|A: Alright                                                             |
|S: Sweet                                                               |
|SS: Showtime                                                           |
|SSS: Stylish                                                           |
|It is also interesting to note that the red orbs a dead enemy leaves   |
|are directly proportional to the style you had at the time of executing|
|him. For example if you have a SSStylish rank when you finish a demon, |
|he may leave even four hundred orbs but if you have a Dope rank,       |
|he may leave as low as 10 orbs. This creates a link between Stylish    |
|Points and Red Orbs in the final rankings.                             |
|                                                                       |

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
|There are many magical orbs in the game, each one with magical         |
|properties given below:                                                |

|Green Orb:      Restores Health. Can be found by destroying certain    |
|                objects in the game or by hunting demons.              |
|                                                                       |
|Red Orb:        Can be used to upgrade Dante's skills from Divinity    |
|                Statues. These too can be found by destroying objects  |
|                or by killing enemies. There are also some Red Orb     |
|                Pedestals in the game. Red Orbs will continue to fall  |
|                when youíre performing melee combos on these pedestals |
|                and will eventually stop when the pedestal is          |
|                destroyed.                                             |

|Blue Orb:       There are fragments of blue orbs hidden throughout the |
|                game. When you collect four of them, your health bar's |
|                capacity increases. They can also be bought at Divinity|
|                Statues/Customize Menu.                                |

|Gold Orb:       (In NTSC/UC i.e. North American version)               |
|                Allows you to continue game from the last used door    |
|                whenever you die.                                      |

|                Allows you to revive with full health whenever you die.|
|                They are hidden throughout the game as well as         |
|                available at Divinity Statues/Customize Menu.          |
|                                                                       |
|White Orb:      They are rarely dropped by enemies. These recover magic|
|                power/DT gauge.                                        |

|After every mission, your rankings in different aspects are shown. Your|

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Hell Pride:    These are the ones who attack you in the                |
|               beginning of the game. They were purple cloaks and      |
|               wield an axe. They are slow to attack. However they     |
|               can cause problem when they are in masses. All known    |
|               combos and tricks work on these. However if you are     |
|               surrounded by them, a multiple enemy combo such as      |
|               Twosome Time/Fireworks/Rain Strom is recommended.       |
|               Sting-ing/Pierce-ing one enemy and dealing with others  |
|               also works fine.                                        |
|Hell Lust:     Same as Hell Pride, though they tend to dash around     |
|               here and there quickly. Keep an eye on them and jump    |
|               whenever you see them charging towards you. Their brown |
|               cloaks differentiate them from Hell Prides.             |
|Hell Wrath:    These are first met in the 2nd mission                  |
|               "The Blood Link". They carry some sort of bomb, which   |
|               is constantly pulsating and ready to explode. Watch the |
|               color of the bomb. When it changes to orange, they'll   |
|               explode it. Get away from these as far as possible, then|
|               if you've got an opportunity, you can fire at these     |
|               causing them to blow early. Otherwise they'll blow after|
|               sometime themselves.                                    |
|Hell Vanguard: They look very much similar to Sin Scythes from DMC1.   |
|               However there is only one difference between them; i.e. |
|               they are far more easier than those. These also carry   |
|               a scythe and are the most threatening demon of the Hell |
|               family because of their ability to fly. You can damage  |
|               them by using any melee combo (much easier as in DMC1,  |
|               you had to hit their head accurately). And you          |
|               should've known by now that in any DMC battle, the trick|
|               is more about avoiding their attacks by dodging, rolling|
|               and jumping if you want to survive at all (let alone    |
|               defeating them).                                        |
|Enigma:        These alien-lookin weirdoes drop from the               |
|               sky in the 3rd mission. They shoot damaging blades at   |
|               you. Avoid them and try getting near these and doing    |
|               some powerful melee attacks, that'll take care of them. |
|               DON'T try to fight these from a distance, and be quick  |
|               once you get near them as they can zip-zap quickly here |
|               and there.                                              |
|Hell Sloth:    These are first met in the Bull's Eye bar. These are    |
|               white demons and also carry a scythe but are far more   |
|               threatening than Hell Prides because of their ability to|
|               teleport anywhere. However, all effective combos of Hell|
|               Prides are effective on these too. But be careful when  |
|               you see them disappearing because it is certain that    |
|               they'll wield that scythe after appearing somewhere near|
|               you.                                                    |
|Hell Gluttony: Brown sandish things with only one difference from Hell |
|               Prides. They vomit sand which can damage up to a pretty |
|               extent. Same strategy as others, Avoid & Attack (Golden |
|               A&A Rule for DMC games).                                |
|Hell Greed:    These would have been much more safer in their coffins  |
|               but they decided to face Dante carrying it with them.   |
|               Fortunately these are very slowly moving creatures with |
|               only one threat i.e. to slash their coffin at you.      |
|               You can't stop this by counters so the only option      |
|               available for you is to be away while they are doing    |
|               this silly move.                                        |
|Hell Envy:     Only Hell Jailor who is made of liquid. Not very mobile |
|               which makes hunting them easier for you. They are       |
|               characterized by green liquids flowing over their       |
|               bodies.                                                 |
|Gigapede:      Huge worm-resembling demon which moves through the      |
|               hallway in 4th mission "The Unwanted One". Avoid its    |
|               attacks and jump on it, do some melee combos to damage  |
|               it until it turns and you fall down. Do the same thing  |
|               a couple of times to take out all his health.           |
|Blood Goyle:   Bat like creatures which fly here and there and spit    |
|               blood. Shoot at them for quite a period of time and     |
|               they'll fall on ground stunned, and that's your chance  |
|               to blow them some melee fighting. Before they're stunned|
|               all good melee fighting will do is to multiply them so  |
|               be careful to blow them with your guns first.           |
|Damned Pawn:   Chess Pawns holding two swords. They are slow to move,  |
|               attack them until you see their swords glowing red.     |
|               That's your time to move out of their range.            |
|Dullahan:      Dullahan means "bride" in Urdu language and its up to my|
|               wonder how they resemble a bride. These creatures carry |
|               a protective shield and float in air. None of the       |
|               attacks will work from front so deal with them from     |
|               their backs.                                            |
|Soul Eater:    These can be frustrating at moments. They flow in form  |
|               of blue mist, only to appear for short periods of time  |
|               in which you can attack them. They stun you with their  |
|               mist to eat away your soul.                             |
|Damned Bishop: Carry a magic staff. Hit them when they are static and  |
|               get out of their way when the staff starts to glow.     |
|               They'll try to fire you up then.                        |
|Fallen:        Angelic looking creatures. They hold a light spear with |
|               which they'll try to damage you. Sometimes they'll      |
|               throw the spear which'll explode afterwards. Their      |
|               belly is their only vulnerable point and is constantly  |
|               protected by their tough wings. Wait until their strike,|
|               then do a powerful mid air attack during their move.    |
|               One of their wings will be broken so you'll be able to  |
|               slash their abdomen then. They'll regain the wings      |
|               though after some time.                                 |
|Damned Knight: Same slow pieces. Jump away when you see them tilting   |
|               their heads. If they jump into air, they'll slam        |
|               somewhere near so that's again a time for changing your |
|               place.                                                  |
|Damned Rook:   Will shoot a laser beam in four directions after getting|
|               a few good slaps from Dante. These beams can also be    |
|               dodged by jumping away. These can also spawn other chess|
|               pieces.                                                 |
|Damned Queen:  Most mobile of all chess pieces. Eliminate others first |
|               to concentrate on this one.                             |
|Damned King:   Just like the queen, this one is difficult at first.    |
|               Kill other less dangerous chess pieces than focus on    |
|               this one. Though if you manage to destroy this one      |
|               before others, the rest of the pieces will be diminished|
|               automatically.                                          |

|After a spectacular cut scene in which we see Dante gaining back his   |
|kick-ass style that was lost in DMC2, you are left in his office       |
|surrounded by demons. This is very basic mission. You've just got to   |
|finish of every demon before the game can proceed. So use Rebellion    |
|and Ivory & Ebony and teach those fools a lesson.                      |
|                                                                       |

|So you're out of the office and the mysterious tower stands in front of|
|you. You have to fight your ways through the city to reach it. So here |
|we go:                                                                 |
|As soon as the mission begins you are again surrounded by dumb-ass     |
|fools you fought before. Kill the lot and some Hell Wraths will appear |
|carrying a bomb and howling weird voices. Get as away from him as      |
|possible and start shooting at him, he'll explode damaging other       |
|enemies near by. Now another lot and a Hell Wrath will be there        |
|for you to fight. While fighting the demons, be as far away from the   |
|bomb one as possible until it explodes itself. Or if you do get a      |
|chance, shoot it and make it leave for hell. Prepare yourself for your |
|first sub-boss fight with a Hell Vanguard. It's not much difficult,    |
|just keep in mind the golden DMC A&A (Avoid & Attack) rule.            |
|                                                                       |

|Now on the second street: Two Enigmas will fall on the platform in     |
|front of you as soon as the mission begins. Leave everything and head  |
|towards them, kick jump to reach them, and do a melee combo and stinger|
|on either of them. Jump quickly and do the same on the other one. Now  |
|they'll fall on ground where they'll be much less threatening.         |
|Eliminate all other demons, eventually facing a Hell Wrath too.        |
|When everyone's sent to hell, deal with the Enigmas, they are not      |
|difficult on ground, they just zip-zap here and there, just get near   |
|them and blow them up with melee fighting. There are also barrels in   |
|the far side of the area which you can explode with shooting to help   |
|you. After you've killed everyone, the door in the far side of the area|
|will be unlocked.                                                      |
|Go through the door to find yourself in a bar. Destroy tables/chairs   |
|and every object you can find to find red orbs plus a green orb.       |
|Above the counter, you can kick jump to reach some more barrels        |
|with red orbs and one huge green orb that replenishes most of the      |
|health. Now coming down, there's a juke box which'll play a remixed    |
|version of "Lock & Load" soundtrack from DMC1 when destroyed. Now,     |
|on the right of the juke box, there's a destructible wall, break       |
|it to find yourself facing a magical rune clock. Smash it with your    |
|sword to see runes lighting up. Smash it until all runes come to life  |
|, the curse on the door on the right will be broken now. Go there to   |
|find a shotgun framed on the wall in the doorway. After picking up the |
|shotgun, head forwards to the next door.                               |
|Now you're in the second area of the bar, in front of you is a pole,   |
|you can swing on it by pressing triangle near it. This can be useful in|
|the coming fight. On the right there's a door, head towards it         |
|to find it being cursed and yourself being surrounded by Hell Sloths,  |
|they can disappear and appear anywhere so you have to be lightning     |
|quick to take them out. There's also a green orb to help you in the    |
|fight on the stage above the cursed door. When you've taken everyone   |
|out, the curse will be lifted and you are now back on a street.        |
|After advancing a little forward, there will be a secret area on left  |
|which you can enter after breaking the door. You can get tons of Red   |
|Orbs from the Red Orb Pedestal there. After leaving it you can break   |
|the box in front of you to find a Green Orb. Follow the street         |
|to find red orbs scattered on the rooftops (sometimes you have to      |
|kick jump to reach them) and a divinity statue. A little back from     |
|divinity statue is a blue orb fragment on the rooftop on your right.   |
|On your left is also a blue orb fragment hidden in a destructible      |
|statue on a rooftop. When you have collected both, press circle near   |
|the door of the house before Divinity Statue to enter Secret Mission   |
|1.                                                                     |
|                                                                       |
|Secret Mission 1: The Exorcist                                         |
|You have to defeat those Hell Prides, Wraths and Sloths within a       |
|minute. You can do that by now, can't you?                             |
|                                                                       |
|Go ahead in the tower after clearing this mission to face your first   |
|boss battle with a three headed dog.                                   |
|                                                                       |
|Boss Battle: Cerberus                                                  |
|This extraordinary big dog is made up of ice and has several powerful  |
|attacks. They are listed below:                                        |
|1)From the beginning, it'll shoot ice blades on you from a distance.   |
|  Lowers his head before this attack.                                  |
|  Damage: Low.                                                         |
|  Defense: Roll away from the blades with good timing.                 |
|2)Ice blades'll fall from above on your current location. Cerberus     |
|  roars  at the ceiling before this attack.                            |
|  Damage: Low.                                                         |
|  Defense: Jump sideways from your location quickly.                   |
|3)After lowering its head, tries to hit you with it.                   |
|  Damage: Low.                                                         |
|  Defense: Jump backwards.                                             |
|4)After lowering its head for a while, it jumps wholly towards you.    |
|  Damage: High.                                                        |
|  Defense: Jump towards far sides.                                     |
|5)Tries to attack you by moving his paws.                              |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Watch his feet, get out of the way of one and start         |
|  demolishing the other.                                               |
|6)Inhales ice from the ceiling and exhales it on the ground.           |
|  Damage: Dante freezes, medium-high.                                  |
|  Defense: Quickly move to someplace else.                             |
|7)Stomps on the ground sending ice waves in it.                        |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Jump.                                                       |
|8)Near the middle of the fight, he'll shout "You're not human are you?"|
|  and stomp on ground to raise ice from it.                            |
|  Damage: High                                                         |
|  Defense: Jump n' shoot.                                              |
|The dog has five damageable points, three on each of his heads and two |
|on each of its paws. To damage any point, you have to first melt ice   |
|on it, using shotgun is recommended as it does reasonable damage.      |
|Once the ice is melted on a particular point, go ahead carefully and   |
|take that point with either melee fighting if you have chance or       |
|shooting if you are too scared to get near him. But remember that      |
|once the ice is melted on a point, melee fighting does a handy amount  |
|of damage to him. During the fight, he'll break his chains and his     |
|attacks will become more devastating. Remember one things, no matter   |
|how good an evil hunter you are, don't try to attack always. This      |
|fight is partly based on defense and partly on how cleverly you        |
|attack.                                                                |
|Additional Strategy by ~Hon~: This DMC fan has made a wonderful        |
|contribution to Cerberus boss fight strategy. Just concentrate on      |
|the dog's feet while fighting and eventually the dog'll fall. At this  |
|time some melee combos can be done on him to inflict a great amount    |
|of damage.                                                             |
|After you've defeated this monster, he'll praise you and give you his  |
|soul in the form of the weapon "Cerberus". Collect the orbs left by him|
|and move forward to the next mission.                                  |
|                                                                       |

|Whoa! Lady has definitely got some style. Now you are in The Devils    |
|Tower. Don't be afraid, you yourself are half devil so as long as      |
|demons here don't launch a nuclear attack, nothing will trouble Dante. |
|The place you start in is called "The Chamber of Echoes" and its stairs|
|have complicated structure so you can easily get lost in it.           |
|Thus my first advice is to move around all the stairs you see without  |
|entering a door, that's gonna help you recognize the feel of tower.    |
|What! you don't have time for this? OK, first of all there is a        |
|Divinity Statue beside the big door you came from. Take the stairs on  |
|Dante's right, go up, follow the path until you reach a caged door with|
|stairs and light in front of it. Take right from the stairs, collect   |
|red orbs in the path and kick jump the gap using the wall (this can be |
|a little tricky, but you have no other way). Enter the blue door, and  |
|test your new weapon Cerberus on those Hell Prides there. Follow the   |
|stairs, enter the door, praise how weirdly Enigmas appear from the     |
|statues, kill everyone in the room, see the next sealed door on the    |
|stairs unlocked enter into it and take a breath.                       |
|Hmm...you don't want to rest do you, smash those statues in the room   |
|to drop Red Orbs. There is a rune clock in the room, after activating  |
|it a platform will appear, jump onto it and up up away! By the way I   |
|liked the gothic design of the tower which was visible when the        |
|platform was going above. They are getting back DMC1 feel.             |
|Get ready for your introduction with some Hell Gluttonies alongside    |
|with some Hell Prides and Hell Sloths. And yeah, you noticed before me,|
|there is a Blue Orb fragment on a platform above the door. To reach it,|
|use the pipes/walls with kick jump. If you can't reach it, take DMC3   |
|back to the shop because this is the very basic fussle (it can't be    |
|even called a puzzle)in the game. Get back on ground and go through the|
|door. Take the stairs and watch another beautiful phenomena imported   |
|from DMC1. Stairs fall and you face a trial with Hell family demons.   |
|After departing them to their homeland (Hell), a light will flash in   |
|the middle of the room, step into it to find yourself back in the room |
|you were before. With the only difference of big sealed door on your   |
|right being open now. Go into it to face some really weird sub-boss    |
|called Gigapede. A&A, and jump on it to slash some serious damage to   |
|it. Do it a couple of times and you're fine with the door unlocked at  |
|the bottom of the hall. Go into it to find a cut scene in which for the|
|first time you'll see a Joker as an interesting character. Well that's |
|the reward of your ending of mission as well as a Wheel-Gear to use in |
|the Astronomical Tower in the Chamber of Echoes..                      |
|                                                                       |

|As soon as you start in the hallway you fought Gigapede before, you    |
|are surrounded by some Blood Goyles. Take'em out to unlock the door at |
|the top which you came from. Go through it and take a look at that     |
|broken staircase. Hmm...we're gonna find a way to cross it, but of     |
|course, we can't fly yet. Take the door on right to get back to The    |
|Devils Tower. On top of it, on the side of the window is a mechanism   |
|in which you have to use the Wheel-Gear you got from the jester. This  |
|will move the blocking stones some levels below. Remember the blue door|
|which you entered earlier? On one level above it and a little forward  |
|towards left were the blocking stones. After they are moved, go there  |
|to find a fork thingy called Vajura (during the whole guide you may    |
|not be able to understand Chamber of Echoes' locations correctly, so   |
|try to find your way around these stairs yourself if you can't reach   |
|something). You can use the Divinity Statue on the ground level of     |
|the chamber. Go back in the blue door you previously entered, kill the |
|Hell Prides, go into the door at the top of the stairs. In the room,   |
|jump upon the ledge on either sides of the room and follow them to a   |
|space in which a mechanism rests in which you can use Vajura. After    |
|using it the cage on the stairs will be lifted, go there to find Soul  |
|of Steel, which'll let you fly over the broken staircase I was talking |
|about earlier. But No! not that fast, kill those Enigmas and Hell      |
|Gluttonies in the room and go in the door at top you went in the       |
|previous mission. In the room, there'll be some destructible statues   |
|as well as a Red Orb Pedestal. After you've gathered everything, go    |
|back to the door and follow your way back to the Chamber of Echoes.    |
|Go into the brownish door some levels above in which the staircase     |
|was broken. And when you are in, walk the gap. No you won't fall       |
|instead you'll walk through the air because of the Soul of Steel.      |
|Attack the statue on the right with Cerberus several times to drop a   |
|blue orb fragment.  After getting it, use the Soul of Steel on the     |
|big door in front of you, enter it, and press circle near the read     |
|box on the wall beside the rune clock to enter Secret Mission 2.       |
|                                                                       |
|Secret Mission 2: Untouchable                                          |
|You have to defeat those Enigmas without getting damaged, just jump    |
|a lot to avoid their blades and slash'em whenever you get chance.      |
|Remember that as soon as you get even touched by their blades, you'll  |
|fail the mission. Clear it to get a blue orb fragment.                 |
|                                                                       |
|After you've completed the secret mission, you'll be back in the room. |
|Activate the platform using the rune clock and fight your way through  |
|Hell Prides while going up. Be careful not to fall down as you'll have |
|to activate it again. After you've reached the top, follow the ledge   |
|to a Divinity Statue and some destructible objects for gaining red     |
|orbs. Go into the door to face a battle with a couple of twin ...      |
|swords.                                                                |
|                                                                       |
|Boss Battle: Agni & Rudra                                              |
|Agni stands for fire in Indian language and that perfectly describes   |
|him and his sword. Same is true for Rudra which stands for "father of  |
|the storm gods". Here are their attacks:                               |
|1)Either of them will execute a sword combo.                           |
|  Damage: Low                                                          |
|  Defense: Move anywhere but near them                                 |
|2)Either of them will run at you and slash their swords in air.        |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Roll/Jump out of their way                                  |
|After one of them falls, other will take his sword and combine them to |
|unleash new attacks such as:                                           |
|1)Combine both of swords and hurl up a tornado                         |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: What else can you do than to jump out?                      |
|2)Send three fire waves through air one by one.                        |
|  Damage: Low                                                          |
|  Defense: Don't even think of getting near him while he is doing      |
|  this; even for the purpose of attacking him.                         |
|If you attack right after one of their attacks, you'll temporarily     |
|knock sword out of their hands which'll be your chance to strike.      |
|Though don't concentrate on any one of them for long. This has two     |
|benefits. Firstly, you'll avoid most of their attacks if you focus on  |
|both of them. Secondly if one of them falls and you have drained the   | 
|other's health to a pretty extent, you'll have to fight the combined   |
|swords for lesser time. And do I need to tell A&A is a must here?      |
|Additional Strategy by ~Hon~: In the start of the fight, try to damage |
|both of the twins until they both have very little health left. Then   |
|kill both of them by shooting before anyone of them runs to the pillar |
|and combine both swords. This is possible with perfect timings and is  |
|very helpful as you don't have to fight the combined swords this way.  |
|                                                                       |

|The goddess in front of you is staring at the door on right. You'll    |
|have to move to take the other door, clear at least two trials and come|
|back to offer the goddess their rewards. Of course you'd want to       |
|complete all the three trials as they're not difficult and you get     |
|Artemis weapon as a reward for completing all of them. First of all,   |
|jump on the goddess' statue to summon a massive number of red orbs     |
|from no where. Then head forward for the next door on the staircase.   |
|A Divinity Statue is on your left as you enter the room. In front of   |
|you are three staircases for three different trials. Let's tackle them |
|one by one.                                                            |
|The staircase in front of the purple stone leads to the Trial of       |
|Wisdom. You'll find three doors in the room plus one you came from. All|
|four of them have red lights burning over them. They differ in count   |
|from each other. Remember the message of purple stone? A crawling      |
|infant walks on four so take the door with four lights first. A man    |
|standing tall walks on two so take the one with two lights next and    |
|finally take the door with three lights as an old man walks on three   |
|(feet plus stick). If you managed the order right, you'll be in the    |
|central room ready to take the essence for intelligence in the middle  |
|of it. Tell your parents that you're not dumb because your school      |
|report wasn't all that cool, you are now an honored intelligent gamer. |
|Of course, if you mess the order, you'll have to endure a fight and    |
|start over from scratch.                                               |
|The middle staircase (orange one) leads to Trial of Skill. Just avoid  |
|those spikes. You ask me how? Well when spikes come from left, move to |
|right and vice versa. Similarly when they come from above, roll under  |
|them and when they come from ground, jump above them. Get the essence  |
|of technique and fight your way back to the chamber of trials.         |
|The last staircase is the one in front of green stone. Your warrior    |
|skills will be put to test. You can use sharp needles there to Pole    |
|Play, but beware. The enemies in this trial are in Devil Trigger mode  |
|so you can't deal with them normally. Which means you can't Hightime   |
|them and you'll have to avoid every single move of theirs. You can,    |
|however deal with them normally by smashing both rune clocks in the    |
|area but that'll be only for a certain amount of time.  Complete       |
|this trial and get back to the goddess you met before. Yeah! Wait and  |
|equip Agni & Rudra at the Divinity Statue if you haven't equipped it   |
|already. You'll need it a little while later. Use all the three stones |
|on the goddess and get Artemis as a weapon as well as unlock the door  |
|in front of you. After you're in, blow the statue on the left using    |
|Agni & Rudra. See those flames on it? Using different (and I mean      |
|different) moves you'll extinguish them one by one. Pick up the blue   |
|orb left by the statue. Follow the stairs to a cut scene and the end   |
|of mission.                                                            |

|As soon as you start, go into the tower and kick jump that white       |
|light beside the door to enter a ledge. Press circle near the red      |
|light to trigger Secret Mission 3.                                     |
|                                                                       |
|Secret Mission 3: Death From Above                                     |
|This is one really really difficult secret mission. You have           |
|to stay in air for 20 seconds or more. My advice is to buy the         |
|Air Hike move for Rebellion at Divinity Statue/Customize Menu and      |
|upgrade Trickster to level 2 (by hunting demons while you are in this  |
|style). Start by Hightime, shoot with Ivory & Ebony for quite a time,  |
|jump off the enemy, shoot again, do an Air Hike, a Sky Star towards    |
|another enemy, jump off him too and continue on. This depends a lot    |
|on your luck of finding enemies to jump off. Of course you can leave   |
|this mission and do it later. A little trick I used to complete this   |
|mission was to leave it for now and come back when I had the weapon    |
|Nevan and Air Raid move. I went into Devil Trigger mode and started    |
|gliding in the air, eventually using a Devil Star to retain Devil      |
|Trigger. Of course some people won't like to use this but that is      |
|totally their decision.                                                |
|Additional Strategy by ~Matt Leahy~, ~Ertai~, ~Juraj Grcevic~ and      |
|~James Ladd~ and ~Gendo landmann~:                                     |
|Numerous people have emailed me about a different and simpler way of   |
|doing this mission. It includes going to a corner, waiting for Hell    |
|Prides to gather around you and then using Kick Jump and Enemy Jumps   |
|to keep yourself in the air. Depending on your skills, it has the      |
|potential of making the job easier for you as well as impossible to    |
|accomplish. Personally I found this very useful but many people in DMC |
|community have reported that they simply can't get the hang of it.     |
|                                                                       |
|After the Secret Mission, grab the blue orb fragment that is on one of |
|the ledges on the left of the door. You can use Kick Jump to reach it. |
|After taking the BOF, take the door and jump down to the ground        |
|level. No this is not Prince of Persia so you won't be killed,         |
|mainly because of Dante being half-demon. Go into the door at ground   |
|level to enter Divine Library. One of the damned pawns there will      |
|have a shiny item near its feet (do they have any feet?). Kill only    |
|that pawn and take the Orihalcon Fragment. Get out of the library      |
|ignoring all other pawns or kill them first if you are low on red      |
|orbs. Jump into that circular red platform out of the library to       |
|experience a powerful thrust that'll send you in air. Continue doing   |
|it until you reach a level with a Holy Water item. Pick it and use     |
|another thrust to get on a level with green door. Inside the room,     |
|above the stairs are many ledges that contain red orbs plus one blue   |
|orb fragment. Its a little difficult to take them all but try your     |
|best is all I can say. You can use Wall Hike and Air Hike moves to     |
|get them; and remember not to move a lot, jump and move a little to    |
|forward to next ledge. When you have taken the blue orb fragment,      |
|take the door on right. Damned Pawns again. You don't have to kill     |
|them all but you can do so. Anyway, take the door in the left          |
|corridor, advance to the goddess in the room. Defeat all Hell demons   |
|there and take the Siren's Shriek that'll fall down. Take the big      |
|door next to the goddess, attack that statue there using Rebellion     |
|and different combos until all flames are put out. Take the stairs     |
|and use Orihalcon Fragment on lift control panel. Drop down the        |
|stairs to the lift, which'll take you back to the Chamber of Echoes.   |
|You can use the Divinity Statue at the ground level near the door.     |
|Remember a flaming door in the Chamber? Use Siren's Shriek there       |
|to open the door. Down the path there is a Gold Orb. Take it and       |
|follow the path to the door above, killing Hell Demons on your way.    |
|Go into the door, break the wall in front of you, turn on the rune     |
|clock and break that big ball that drops down by continuous melee      |
|combos. An easy way would be to jump on the ball and smash it while    |
|flying. Take the Crystal Skull, kill every demon there, follow         |
|your way back to the lift in the Chamber of Echoes and all the         |
|way up to the goddess statue's room where you were before. Go          |
|into the hallway you came from and fought Damned Pawns. use            |
|Crystal Skull on the big door at the end of the hallway, enter         |
|it. Get red orbs from the Red Orb Pedestal there and use Divinity      |
|Statue to upgrade. Follow the way to the Peak of Darkness and          |
|prepare for your first fight with your own twin brother.               |
|                                                                       |
|Boss Battle: Vergil                                                    |
|Lightning Fast, what else can better describe him. In close range      |
|combat, you barely have a chance to get out without getting some       |
|hits from him. Here are his attacks:                                   |
|1)Yamato Sword Combo                                                   |
|  Damage: Low                                                          |
|  Defense: Jump away and shoot with handguns while in air to stay      |
|  there for a while.                                                   |
|2)Teleport attack                                                      |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Same as the last one.                                       |
|Wait until he is tired by his combos, attack him at that time and      |
|do some powerful melee combos. All the rest of fight you should be     |
|relying on your guns. After all they are the difference between        |
|Dante and Vergil.                                                      |
|Additional Strategy by ~hellboy105~: There are several statues around  |
|the arena. Hide behind one of them and Vergil will shout "Where's your |
|motivation?" (not a bad question though) and try to attack you from    |
|close-range but hit the statues instead. The lag-time after the attack |
|will give you plenty of time to slash back and do powerful damage to   |
|him.                                                                   |

|Dante has awoken, he can now use the Devil Trigger finally. But what   |
|a messy place to start with. You are inside that big ugly Leviathan.   |
|On the ledge on your right is an eyeball. Smash it to open a single    |
|tusk on a path. Across the ledge is another eyeball. After slashing    |
|it, drop on ground, avoid that acidic liquid and take out that         |
|eyeball near the buss (that Leviathan went on ground to eat that       |
|thing?). Just opposite to the buss is a breakable wooden structure     |
|in which lays Secret Mission 4.                                        |
|                                                                       |
|Secret Mission 4: Devil's Teeter-totter                                |
|You have to ride the elevator to the top. Not as easy as it sound in   |
|the real life. In fact it would have been much easier if there were    |
|stairs as Devil Triggered demons will constantly jump on the elevator  |
|and if the weight is too much, the lift will fall down to start over   |
|again. So be quick to slash them, or drop them out of the ledge. The   |
|lesser the demons on the lift, the better it'll be.                    |
|Alternate Strategy found by ~Keith Gonzalez~: This strategy makes      |
|this mission a breeze if you pull it off correctly. But beware as      |
|you might consider this one a cheat as it exploits a bug in the game.  |
|You have to be in Trickster style for this. When the lift is going     |
|up, wait until Hell Prides fall down. Then jump towards the wall       |
|in front of you and run vertically above it. When you fall back on     |
|the lift, viola! All the demons have disappeared for good. Once        |
|again thanks to ~Keith Gonzalez~ for discovery of the helpful bug.     |
|Additional Strategy by ~Charles Flowers~: You can just knock the       |
|enemies off the elevator if you want by using Shotgun's chraged up     |
|shots. This way you won't get any orbs or style points from them but   |
|they'll be off the elevator so it can keep going upwards.              |
|                                                                       |
|Back in this weird place. Above the area of Secret Mission is a ship   |
|which contains a blue orb fragment on its deck. After getting it,      |
|head towards the buss on the opposite side. Jump above it, and take    |
|the narrow path on right in the wall, don't even think of taking a     |
|bath in that shower of acid there. Take out the eyeball there, and     |
|Kick Jump the ledge on right to continue upwards. Gather red orbs      |
|using the red orb pedestal there. Take out the final eyeball and       |
|drop down to the bus ledge. Enter the hole that opened there.          |
|Follow the path, upgrade if you need using the Divinity Statue on      |
|right. Blast that sticky stuff blocking the way, admire the horrible   |
|heart core of Leviathan, take the other hole in the heart core, be on  |
|run from that Gigapede, eventually jumping and shooting at him if he   |
|gets too close. After he is stuck on a small hole, enter the other     |
|way in that area. Encounter those Hell Envies there, continue till     |
|you reach the beast's retina area. Kill demons there and sigh that     |
|all the red orbs are being absorbed by that big ball in the middle.    |
|It'll soon offer a shiny item "Ignis Fatuus" as a reward for those     |
|orbs. Take it and go through the hole lightened on your back. On       |
|your way there's a Combat Adjudicator on a secret passage on left,     |
|use Cerberus to break it apart and continue your path. When you are    |
|back in Leviathan's Stomach, take the hole you entered before for      |
|making your way to its Heart Core again. Once you are inside its       |
|heart core, use the Ignis Fatuus on the membrane and a battle with     |
|the heart core will start.                                             |
|                                                                       |
|Boss Battle: Leviathan's Heart Core                                    |
|Tricky, but easy. Hell Envies will constantly attack you. Avoid their  |
|attacks and concentrate on the heart sides. When any of the sides'     |
|health is destroyed, the middle heart will be open for quite a brief   |
|period of time. That's your time to smash it. It has also got some of  |
|its own attacks to protect itself. Here they are:                      |
|1)Shoot energy balls at you.                                           |
|  Damage: Low                                                          |
|  Defense: Move sideways or jump/roll.                                 |
|2)Shoot a straight laser line in diagonal form one end of the area to  |
|  the other.                                                           |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Jump when the laser gets near you.                          |
|3)Shoot two laser beams across the area. Eventually crossing each      |
|  other.                                                               |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Stand in the middle and wait till the beams cross each      |
|  other. That's your time to jump.                                     |
|After you defeat it, a sequence of cut scenes will be triggered.       |
|Congratulations on being out of that weird thing.                      |
|Additional Strategy from ~ttaw bbew~: Equip Artemis and walk around any|
|of the organs then start using Acid Rain. The organ will be heavily    |
|damaged alongside with all the enemies around you.                     |
|                                                                       |

|Take the door at the other end of the bridge, kill all Arachnes there  |
|and enter the unsealed way. Use Divinity Statue if you need. A blue    |
|orb fragment is hidden above the statue. After getting it, solve       |
|the light puzzle in front of you. Here's the simplest definition of    |
|the puzzle. (S)tart statue reflects a light ray on the (M)irrors       |
|which you have to transfer to the (T)arget statue by destroying        |
|the (D)estructible mirrors. Figure A & B represent the initial and     |

|After you've solved the puzzle, the blue sealed door in front of the   |
|Divinity Statue will be opened. Go through it and slay all the         |
|Enigmas there. Continue the circular path to reach the door at the     |
|other bank. Enter it to find yourself in Subterranean Garden. Some     |
|Red Orbs as well as a Large Green Orb are scattered in the hidden      |
|area on your right. A divinity statue also rests on the left of the    |
|door you came from. Just beside the Divinity Statue is a door, enter   |
|it, avoid the spinning blades and follow the path to the door on       |
|opposite side. After entering it, take Ambrosia fruit in the room,     |
|kill all Arachnes there and continue back towards the Subterranean     |
|Garden. Head towards the cave under waterfall there. A little behind   |
|the cave are some broken walls. Use them to reach the platform         |
|above. Spiral weapon lays there. After you've obtained it, drop down   |
|and go through the cave.                                               |
|On your left is a Devil Star item after dropping down to a slope.      |
|After getting back by the slope, kick jump the wall on right to        |
|enter a secret hole. Press circle near those red crystals to trigger   |

|                                                                       |
|Secret Mission 5: Destroyer                                            |
|Destroy all 50 background objects within the time limit (40            |
|seconds). No strategy involved here at all. Just keep your eyes        |
|open for objects that look destroyable.                                |
|                                                                       |
|After clearing the mission, follow the cave to a narrow path which     |
|leads to a door. Use Ambrosia there and enter it for a battle with     |
|the female sorceress Nevan.                                            |
|                                                                       |
|Boss Battle: Nevan                                                     |
|The first boss battle I experiences trouble on. Nevan has several      |
|powerful and hard to avoid attacks:                                    |
|1)Shoot bats combined with electricity at you.                         |
|  Damage: Low                                                          |
|  Defense: Jump/Roll                                                   |
|2)Raise black blades from the ground, heading towards you.             |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Run away                                                    |
|3)Cover all the ground with electricity.                               |
|  Damage: High                                                         |
|  Defense: Jump (Air Hike if you have it), and shoot it her using      |
|  Ivory & Ebony to stay there for a while.                             |
|4)Send electricity in shapes of lines towards you.                     |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Analyze the shape and jump as appropriate.                  |
|5)Hurl black blades around her body.                                   |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Be away, and remember she is vulnerable for a couple of     |
|  seconds after this attack.                                           |
|6)Near the end of the fight, she tries to kiss you, you can judge      |
|  this move by her arm thrusting stance.                               |
|  Damage: Very High                                                    |
|  Defense: Jump n' Shoot. Her kiss is not as cool as the one from      |
|  your girlfriend so don't suppose it to be nice. If she manages to    |
|  catch you anyway, start Devil Trigger mode to lose her quickly.      |
|Nevan will teleport around the room. After you have dodged several     |
|of her attacks and inflicted a little damage on her, the bats          |
|supporting her will be lessened, eventually disappearing               |
|completely. Do some melee combos on her at this time and jump out      |
|when she gathers the shadows. Be patient and after quite a long        |
|battle you'll exterminate her. Enter the little door that'll be        |
|unsealed after the fight to end the mission.                           |
|                                                                       |

|Basically, you need to get back all the way of mission 9 to reach      |
|the Rotating Bridge you started on earlier. Take Stoned Mask in        |
|front of you and follow your way backwards until you're out of the     |
|cave. Use Nevan at the statue on left of the broken structures         |
|to reveal a blue orb (if you don't have Nevan equipped, you can do     |
|so by the Divinity Statues on the opposite side). If your memory       |
|is in a good condition, you'll remember that there are two doors       |
|on the side of Divinity Statue. Between the doors, there's a           |
|statue. use Stoned Mask on it to conjure a path on water towards       |
|the Altar on the other side. Take Neo Generator from there and         |
|trigger Secret Mission 6 by pressing circle near the crystal at        |
|the right of the Altar.                                                |
|                                                                       |
|Secret Mission 6: Flight Of The Demon                                  |
|Nevan must be equipped for this mission to go smoothly. If you         |
|haven't equipped it yet, do so by the Divinity Statue near             |
|on the lake. You should also buy Air Raid move for this one            |
|and depending on your skills you might also need a Devil Star.         |
|After getting things ready, just fly around the mission using          |
|Air Raid and collect every red orb you can see. There are also         |
|white orbs spread around to keep you in DT mode but if you are         |
|low on DT gauge, use Devil Stars to keep soaring.                      |
|                                                                       |
|Once you are back on the lake, head back towards the big door on       |
|the right of the statue you used Stoned mask on the (it's also the     |
|one you came from in the last mission). Defeat Dullahans there         |
|(you have to attack on their backs to damage them) to open the         |
|door. Kill Enigmas if you need some red orbs or continue your          |
|path around the area and enter the door at the other side. Upgrade     |
|if you need to using the Divinity Statue there. Enter the door on      |
|your left, kill Arachnes there and watch the cut scene that will       |
|be triggered when you are on the Rotating Bridge. After the bridge     |
|is rotated, cross it and enter the door at the other side.             |
|Proceed a little forward and wonder how easy and short the             |
|mission was.                                                           |
|                                                                       |

|Kill the Enigmas, take the red orbs in the area and make your way      |
|down the wheel gears to the ground level. On the left of the brown     |
|door there, is a platform. Jump on it and Air Hike to reach another    |
|hidden area on the top which contains Secret Mission 7. Start the      |
|mission by pressing circle near the big red circular structure.        |
|                                                                       |
|Secret Mission 7: Hang 10                                              |
|A time limit of 30 seconds is provided for you to reach the blue orb   |
|fragment on the other side of the area. Just ignore the demons and     |
|make your way around the area. Transforming into Demon state would be  |
|helpful if you have some DT Gauge saved for yourself.                  |
|                                                                       |
|Once back, enter the brown door on the ground level of the gears.      |
|Kick jump to reach the blue orb fragment on your right, kill Soul      |
|Eaters in the pathway and continue your path towards the next room.    |
|A statue lays there with three heads. While facing it, there's a       |
|grey statue stabbed with a sword on your left. A red orb lays on the   |
|sword. Jump on the sword to get the orb and jump again to the ledge    |
|above. There's a rectangular block on the ledge. Get behind it and     |
|do some melee combos on it to push it towards the direction of the     |
|red light. One more statue will start bleeding down when the block     |
|touches the red light. From there, make a round about the room on      |
|ledge. You'll see a crack with white light coming from in one of       |
|the walls. Slash it to reveal another block. Do the same on it to      |
|push it to the other end. After this, a path will be opened in one     |
|of the statues below as well as a Hell Vanguard and some Soul          |
|Eaters will be conjured up there. Slay them, enter the path, go        |
|through the door, descend stairs, attack that weight block to reveal   |
|a hole in the ground, drop down for a large green orb, get up again,   |
|blow the statue there using Agni & Rudra, jump on the platform on      |
|your right i.e. Temperance Wagon. When you have sent all the Hell      |
|Demons to their home, the wagon will stop. Take the stairs there,      |
|upgrade if you need to using the Divinity Statue, enter the big        |
|door and prepare for clearing a mess that wants to take revenge        |
|of Sparda from his every blood relation who'd face him.                |
|                                                                       |
|Boss Battle: Beowulf                                                   |
|Phew! This big ugly junk is not easy. He fights more like a boxer than |
|a demon. Here are his attacks:                                         |
|1)Punch combo. Although this is the same attack that you'll meet at    |
|  first if you trouble a bully in your college, Beowulf's punches do a |
|  handy amount of damage that's far more threatening than some bully's |
|  hand waving                                                          |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: What do you do when someone tries to punch you? Present your|
|  face in a wrapped up gift paper? Of course not. You avoid it by being|
|  out of its range.                                                    |
|2)Stomp on ground.                                                     |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Jump n' shoot.                                              |
|3)Stomp on ground to make a pillar drop from the ceiling, then punch it|
|  towards you.                                                         |
|  Damage: High                                                         |
|  Defense: Get behind Beowulf if you are near him; that'll give you a  |
|  chance to attack. Of course you can dodge it if you are far away.    |
|4)Shoot lightning towards you.                                         |
|  Damage: Low                                                          |
|  Defense: Jump n' shoot. One defense that works on almost every attack|
|  in the game.                                                         |
|There's no special time for attacking Beowulf like in the matter of    |
|other bosses so keep attacking him whenever you get chance. Now don't  |
|be disappointed because this was the first demon who didn't give you   |
|any weapon (second if you count Vergil a demon too). You get the       |
|Haywire Neo Generator after you've defeated him.                       |
|Additional Strategy by ~Sergetrigger88~: Beowulf hates it when he's hit|
|in his eyes. When he is performing his punch combo, wait till he lands |
|his last punch on ground. Then slash your sword at his head and he will|
|be stunned for quite a while. Giving you an oppurtunity to inflict a   |
|handy amount of damage to him.                                         |
|                                                                       |

|Run! You're constantly in Devil Trigger mode and your health is        |
|consumed in exchange. Get back on Temperance Wagon, be fast in killing |
|the Hell demons (they will leave Green Orbs more often for your ease), |
|head back towards the door on stairs, slay demons on your way, hop all |
|the way on the Gears of Madness back for the door on top you came from,|
|defeat Hell Vanguard and Hell Prides there, enter the green door on    |
|the other side and finally get rid of the Haywire Neo Generator on     |
|the rotating bridge.                                                   |
|After the bridge has rotated, cross it. A Divinity Statue and a Large  |
|Vital Star await you ahead. Alongside with a boss battle at the end of |
|Spiral Corridor.                                                       |
|                                                                       |
|Boss Battle: Geryon                                                    |
|You start the battle on the bridge. Here Geryon has only one attack    |
|that it runs towards you. Jump (and Air Hike if you have) and start    |
|shooting at it. After it runs a couple of times across the bridge,     |
|it'll be tired and will stop for several seconds. You can melee attack |
|him at that time. When his health bar is damaged for about an quarter, |
|the bridge will fall and the second part of the fight will begin.      |
|Geryon has following attacks in the Underground Arena:                 |
|1)Run around shooting missiles (not nuclear) at you.                   |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: You have to run around too, occasionally jumping to dodge   |
|  the missiles.                                                        |
|2)After running in circles for a brief period of times, halt in the    |
|  center of the arena. His carriage will take a revolution while       |
|  halting which can damage you.                                        |
|  Damage: High                                                         |
|  Defense: Be away. Another defense that works on countless times.     |
|3)Shoot black spheres at you.                                          |
|  Damage: Will slow you down whereas Geryon will still be lightning    |
|  fast. He will try to ramp you now.                                   |
|  Defense: Avoid the spheres. If they hit you anyway, turn DT mode     |
|  on and jump away.                                                    |
|When Geryon halts in the center of the arena, blow some melee combos   |
|on his back legs (Cerberus is extra handy here) and fall down for some |
|more. Do it a couple of times and he'll be defeated; unlocking the     |
|Quicksilver style.                                                     |
|Additional Strategy by ~Justin~: This is hard but can be very useful if|
|you pull it off correctly. When fighting with Geryon running around,   |
|try to jump on his cart and slash away at him with Cerberus. This'll   |
|take a pretty amount of his health before he stops.                    |
|                                                                       |

|Hunt down those Damned Pawns & Bishops and enter the door that'll be   |
|unsealed. Sprint down the spiral corridor. One of the lights on the    |
|wall is red in color. Press circle near it to start Secret Mission 8.  |
|                                                                       |
|Secret Mission 8: Tough Guys                                           |
|No! That's a lie, Dante is tougher than anyone. Show this to those     |
|supposedly tougher Hell Vanguard and Arachnes.                         |
|                                                                       |
|After being back in the Spiral Corridor, continue downwards. At the    |
|bottom of the stairs you'll find a big door and a corridor on the left.|
|Follow the corridor and enter the door at its end. Kill the demons in  |
|the next corridor or ignore them if you want to. Enter the door at the |
|other side to face a puzzle like the one before. Like last time,       |
|(S)tart statue shines a light ray on (M)irrors which you have to       |
|transfer to the (T)arget statue by breaking = wall as well as          |

|After you have solved the puzzle, take the Orihalcon in the hidden     |
|doorway at (T)arget statue. There's a (S)ecret area in the wall on     |
|left which you can access by kick jumping. The red circular things     |
|gives access to Secret Mission 9.                                      |
|                                                                       |
|Secret Mission 9: Target Practice                                      |
|You start on Temperance Wagon and other mobile wagons come in front    |
|of you. You have to kill everyone there before they make it out. It's  |
|a good idea to blow the Hell Wraths that appear there as that severely |
|damages anyone near them.                                              |
|                                                                       |
|Head back out of the Vestibule after clearing the secret mission. Run  |
|to the other end of the corridor facing Chess Demons again. A Divinity |
|Statue is on your left after entering the door. Equip Nevan at it if   |
|you haven't equipped it already and smash the Combat Adjudicator at    |
|the end of the corridor to obtain a blue orb fragment. Then enter the  |
|big door in front of the divinity statue by using Orihalcon on it.     |
|Yes, Vergil is the only boss in the game who appears more than once    |
|to fight you.                                                          |
|                                                                       |
|Boss Battle: Vergil 2                                                  |
|A little different from the last time. Mostly because of Vergil        |
|having Beowulf gauntlets now. A list of his attacks is given below:    |
|1)Punch/Kick combo followed by a fist in the air.                      |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Jump or roll on the other side. Once he is in the air, he   |
|  may land a kick from there so run sideways at that time.             |
|2)Transform into a demon and continue his normal and teleport attacks. |
|  Damage: High                                                         |
|  Defense: Attacking him at this time will do no good. Avoid him for   |
|  some time and he'll be in his human form again.                      |
|3)Lightning attack.                                                    |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: The ground'll flash before lightning so move somewhere      |
|  else.                                                                |
|4)Old sword combo.                                                     |
|  Damage: Low                                                          |
|  Defense: Just like the last time.                                    |
|Like any other boss in the game, Vergil is vulnerable just after his   |
|attacks. So wait, and attack him right after hi finishes a combo. Do   |
|it a couple of times and the fight'll be over. Yeah I wondered why     |
|Jester also had multi-colored eyes!                                    |
|                                                                       |

|A divinity statue is on near you just after you start the mission.     |
|Wondering why? Well Beowulf gauntlets are near the place where Vergil  |
|fell and you have to take them, equip them at the Divinity Statue and  |
|break the Combat Adjudicator using them at the door you came from. Take|
|the blue orb fragment dropped by it, enter the room, run around the    |
|lift in front of you and hack red orbs from the red orb pedestal behind|
|it (thanks goes to ~twiztidjuggalo125~, ~Tret Allen~ and ~Luc~ for     |
|locating the pedestal). After you've earned the orbs, use the lift in  |
|the room, cross the pathway to the broken wall, enter the door once you|
|are inside the broken wall, cross the Vestibule area, follow the hole  |
|on your right, enter the dark area at the end of the path, kill the    |
|Hell Vanguard and Soul Eaters there, enter unsealed the door in the    |
|corridor in one of the statues, take the large green orb in the hidden |
|area beside the Temperance Wagon, board the Wagon, make your way to    |
|the other side, upgrade if you need to using the divinity statue and   |
|enter the room to face a puzzle of multi-colored doors and rooms.      |
|You start in a room of lime colored light, enter the room that is      |
|colored violet, then the light-colored one, kill the demons there and  |
|head back towards the violet room. Now enter the other door that leads |
|to a light-purple room, enter the brown room at the other side, kill   |
|the demons there and enter the now opened light-green room. Take the   |
|blue orb fragment there, kill the demons and then take the other door  |
|that'll be opened. Take the last door in the room to finally get out   |
|of the puzzle in front of an wooden door.                              |
|Now you are in Subterranean Garden and a Divinity Statue is on your    |
|left for upgrading. Take the small door in front of the Divinity Statue|
|to find yourself in the familiar area of Sub ground Water Vein. Run    |
|forward, and you'll see a bright white light column in one of the      |
|platforms. Walk onto it and you'll be taken back to the Bull's Eye     |
|bar you played in the beginning of the game. Use the door that leads   |
|to the Devils Tower, run a little forward and the mission ending       |
|cut scene will be triggered.                                           |
|                                                                       |

|One word of caution! You can get lost easily in this mission, so read  |
|carefully walkthrough for this one. As soon as you start, head towards |
|the colored door. Deal with the Fallens that appear. You have to first |
|cut their wings then attack on their bellies. After you've dealt with  |
|them, enter the colored door and kill the Arachnes in the next room.   |
|Take the unsealed door on the other side, follow the corridor to the   |
|Devil sprout Lift. You need three Orihalcon's to revive the lift. But  |
|first you need to revive the tower itself. Go into the red door on     |
|the side of the lift. After proceeding a little forward, you'll see    |
|a Red Orb Pedestal above the door. To reach it, stand a little forward |
|from the door and kick jump one of the walls on either side. After     |
|taking orbs from the crystal, jump down and turn on the rune clock at  |
|the bottom of the stairs. The tower will rumble, i.e. it will revive   |
|for certain mechanisms. The trickier part starts here.                 |
|Go back to the door you came from, pass the Devil sprout lift, enter   |
|the room in which you fought Arachnes before. You'll see a blue rune   |
|clock has now appeared there, turn it one ONCE, kill the Arachnes and  |
|enter the door at the other side. The tower has shown its beautiful    |
|complexity so you are now on gears of madness. They are worse then     |
|before as they are rotating. Drop down the brown door at the bottom,   |
|enter it, take the Orihalcon fragment at the end of the corridor,      |
|eventually passing the big cutters. Get back to the gears of madness,  |
|turn the blue rune clock on one of the bottom gears ONCE, get back     |
|above and enter the door at the top. One again the tower has rotated   |
|and you're in the Rounded Pathway. Avoid those blades spinning on the  |
|ground and enter the door at the other side. Take the second Orihalcon |
|fragment on the altar in the room and make your way back by killing    |
|the Arachnes. Once you're out of the room, turn on the blue rune clock |
|in the Rounded Pathway. Then sprint back and enter the door which you  |
|came from. You'll now be in Top Subterria Lock (this tower's           |
|complicated mechanism is definitely to protect it from terrorists). Use|
|the divinity statue if you need, collect the red orbs in the far right |
|side of the area and enter the colored door in the middle of the area. |
|Avoid the blades, take the Orihalcon fragment and the green orb in the |
|corridor, get back out of the room. And turn the rune clock in the     |
|middle of the place (near the divinity statue) once. Enter the colored |
|door, go down the spiral corridor and drop down the Underground Arena  |
|to find a blue orb fragment. To get back on the way, jump on a rocky   |
|platform in the Underground Arena which'll take you back upwards. Then |
|turn the rune clock near the Divinity Statue in Top Subterria Lock and |
|enter the colored door again which'll take you to Provisions Storeroom |
|Now you're fine with three fragments. If you turned the rune clock near|
|the divinity statue twice, you'll be in the Provisions Storeroom which |
|leads to the Devil sprout lift. Use the three Orihalcon fragments on   |
|the lift, ride it upwards and the mission will end with a cut scene.   |
|                                                                       |

|I hope you have not lost your mind in that crystal puzzle. For me it   |
|was more difficult to draw it in ASCII than to solve it. Anyway, after |
|getting the blue orb as your reward. Follow your way back to the Devil |
|sprout lift. This time take the door on the other side of the lift.    |
|Instead of going up, head down and enter the crack in the wall. Turn   |
|on both the rune clocks there, two balls will drop down. You have to   |
|clash the balls with each other. To do it, first hit the left ball     |
|towards right and vice versa. After they're broken a small door will   |
|be unlocked in the area. Take the Onyx Moon shard from there, battle   |
|the Fallens and make your way back to the lift. Use the two items you  |
|have gained on the door in front of the lift. Enter it after it's      |
|unlocked. Kill the demons in the chamber if you want or jump up the    |
|hole in the roof (above the rocks bearing Enigmas). Take the stairs    |
|on left and enter the big door there. Run down the broken stairs in    |
|the next room but be careful now to fall down in the place you got Onyx|
|Moonshard in. Take the big red door at the other side of the broken    |
|staircase. Kill the demons in the Giant walk Chamber if you want or    |
|head towards the door at the bottom of the other end. Use the divinity |
|statue in the next room if you need to or enter the other door. Prepare|
|to fight the only human in the game in Divine Library.                 |
|                                                                       |
|Boss Battle: Lady                                                      |
|As the only human in the game, she doesn't rely much on her power      |
|rather her speed and agility is her weapon. Given below are her        |
|attacks:                                                               |
|1)Shoot missile at you.                                                |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Keep moving/rolling/jump whatever you want but not in the   |
|  direction of the missiles.                                           |
|2)Shoot bullets at you.                                                |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: These bullets only hits you when you are moving directly    |
|  towards her. Come on! She's not that attractive, is she?             |
|3)Throw grenades at a place.                                           |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Obviously a grenade only affects the place it is thrown     |
|  upon. What can it do to you if you are far away from it?             |
|4)Shoot mini-missiles from her rocket launcher by first stomping it    |
|  on ground.                                                           |
|  Damage: Low                                                          |
|  Defense: Attack her when she's doing this with some lightning move   |
|  like Stinger to get both advantages of stopping and damaging her at  |
|  the same time.                                                       |
|You have to be extra quick in this fight. She flies here and there     |
|using her rocket launcher. Try to get near her and do some melee combos|
|as she is exactly opposite of Vergil because of her choice of guns.    |
|After a melee combo, if you have performed a powerful move like        |
|Stinger, she'll be thrown away, but she'll not go silently. She shoots |
|bullets at you even then, so jump after you perform a powerful melee   |
|attack on her. Do it a couple of times and she'll give you her rocket  |
|launcher "Kalina Ann" when the fight's over.                           |
|                                                                       |
|After you're out of the library, jump upon the red circular pod and    |
|keep flying until you reach the brown door at the top. Enter it to end |
|the mission.                                                           |
|                                                                       |

|Secret Weapons:        None                                            |
|Blue Orb Fragments:    2                                               |

|Boss Fights:           1                                               |
|                                                                       |
|Kick jump the wall on the door's side when you start the mission to    |
|find a Vital Star S in a secret area in the wall (the place which had  |
|a Secret Mission before). After that, run down the corridor, taking    |
|the red orbs on the ledges above with you. Enter the hole beside the   |
|big door to face a trial of warrior again. You gain a gold orb in      |
|reward for beating those Dt'ed enemies. When you're back, enter the    |
|big door. Smash Red Orb pedestal in the next room as well as a Combat  |
|Adjudicator using Beowulf gauntlets. Use the cubes to get to the door  |
|a level above the one which you came from. Kill the Hell Vanguard and  |
|Enigmas in the room and enter the door on the opposite side. Use       |
|Divinity Statue if you need. Take stairs a little forward of the statue|
|and take the blue orb fragment in the big room there. Trace your way   |
|back to the God-cube chamber. Make your way to the door above using    |
|the cubes but beware that you'll have to start over again from the     |
|ground if you fall. Enter the door. Only a single way of the three     |
|before will be remaining. Take the stairs which lead to the Trial of   |
|Wisdom room. Arachnes have conjured up there this time. Defeat them    |
|and enter the other door with four lights above it. Face the trial     |
|of skill again but this time its a little difficult than before. Anyhow|
|the basic technique is the same as the last one. Enter the hole in the |
|wall on the other side of the hall. Jump upon the red pod there to     |
|charge upwards to the next level. Enter the broken area in front of    |
|you. Take left and collect the red orbs on the ledges above you. You   |
|can play Secret Mission 11 by examining the glowing statue on the      |
|middle beam.                                                           |
|                                                                       |
|Secret Mission 11: On Pins And Needles                                 |
|How many times the game thought before that it can beat you down with  |
|this trial but you still managed to get this far and this is           |
|certainly not a place to quit back. You have to avoid those spikes     |
|like before but with little space available now. Use Trickster's Dash  |
|and Rebellion's Air Hike to help you. The rest depends upon your       |
|reflexes about judging your next move.                                 |
|Additional Strategy by ~Zax~: You can also pass the spikes by using    |
|Trickster's Dash and timing it correctly.                              |
|                                                                       |
|After clearing the Secret Mission and getting the blue orb fragment,   |
|drop down and enter the door at end of the stairs. Defeat the          |
|relatively easier enemies called Abyss there. There's no specific      |
|strategy in defeating them so use anything you want. Enter the door    |
|at the other side, run forward, use the Divinity Statue if you want,   |
|enter the next door, continue your run until the fight with your own   |
|shadow starts.                                                         |
|                                                                       |
|Boss Battle: Doppelganger                                              |
|Stomp on your shadow and what happens? Nothing! So slashing this boss  |
|won't benefit you in the slightest way. You have to bring him in light.|
|The plates on the edge of the area emit light when they are hit certain|
|times. On Normal mode, they take 3 to 4 hits to emit light. First check|
|how many hits are required to illuminate a plate. Then stand by one,   |
|slash it one less than the required hits as to prepare it for          |
|brightening up the shadow with just one hit. Wait for a moment, and    |
|just when Doppelganger gets in the range after zipping towards you,    |
|shower him with the light from the plate slashing the last hit. He'll  |
|be vulnerable to your attacks for a handy period of time. Do it again  |
|and again till he is down.                                             |
|Of course you can also illuminate all the platforms at a time by       |
|continuously running around and hitting them but this strategy can be  |
|little difficult as Doppelganger tries to extinguish the lights you    |
|have brightened during the fight. Just as mentioned in his attacks'    |
|list given below:                                                      |
|1)When you are standing at the edges, he'll zip towards you and fist   |
|  the ground to produce a vertical slash.                              |
|  Damage: Low                                                          |
|  Defense: As I explained above, this is your time to brighten up the  |
|  poser and beat him for ruining Dante's personality.                  |
|2)Shoot black balls at already illuminated lights to extinguish them   |
|  Damage: You have to illuminate them again.                           |
|  Defense: Keep him busy so he can't do this. If he does, you can't    |
|  do anything to stop it.                                              |
|3)Conjure a black void at the place you are standing.                  |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Surely this boss wouldn't be complete without a move which  |
|  required you to jump out of the place...                             |
|                                                                       |
|Once you've taken him down, you unlock the Doppelganger style, run     |
|forward to the top of the tower which is also the end of this mission. |
|                                                                       |

|R. Mission 18: Invading Hell                                           |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Secret Weapons:        None                                            |
|Blue Orb Fragments:    1                                               |

|Secret Missions:       1                                               |
|Sub-Boss Fights:       Variable                                        |
|Boss Fights:           Variable                                        |
|                                                                       |
|Note the term "Variable" in Boss and Sub-Boss fights' status. Well     |
|this is one unique kind of mission. You'll fight almost all bosses of  |
|the game in this one single mission. If this sounds too much boring for|
|you, think again. You can gain 80000-90000 style points by completing  |
|this single mission. In fact as I said in the Styles section, I suggest|
|replaying this mission again and again if you need to level up styles  |
|quickly.                                                               |
|Run forward when the mission starts, continue as platforms will form   |
|in front of you. Jump in the mirror that'll appear. Kill the chess     |
|demons there, concentrating more at Demon King and the Demon Queen. If |
|the King dies, everyone else is worthless in both real life and in this|
|mission. Jump back in the mirror that'll appear on the chess board     |
|after you've defeated everyone. Run forward, slay those Fallens that'll|
|appear on your way and continue your path to the next mirror. There's  |
|a big foot statue behind the mirror. On the right of the statues you   |
|can find a red orb pedestal if you drop down. Similarly on the left    |
|lays the last Secret Mission of the game.                              |
|                                                                       |
|Secret Mission 12: Final Ascension                                     |
|Gaining altitude move from DMC2 now looks like a breeze. You have to   |
|reach at the top of the area by using the rotating blocks. Trickster's |
|Sky Star move and Air Hike are a basic necessity here nonetheless      |
|having Nevan's Air Raid can also prove to be mighty helpful. If you    |
|get frustrated by falling down again and again, you can get a big      |
|unsightly message i.e. "Secret Mission Failed" by entering the door    |
|on ground level. But quitters never win do they?                       |
|                                                                       |
|After getting back, enter the mirror in front of the big foot statue.  |
|In this mirror lays my favorite part of the whole game. Be prepared.   |
|This whole area is cluttered with platforms carrying colored stones.   |
|By pressing circle near these platforms, you'll enter a fight you've   |
|fought before in the human world. Here is a list of the fights:        |
|                                                                       |
|Orange:        Two Hell Vanguards plus plenty of all other Hell Demons.|
|Light Blue:    Cerberus                                                |
|Golden:        Gigapede                                                |
|Green:         Agni & Rudra                                            |
|Red:           Heart of Leviathan                                      |
|Violet:        Nevan                                                   |
|White:         Beowulf                                                 |
|Blue:          Geryon                                                  |
|Black:         Doppelganger                                            |
|                                                                       |
|There are various large green orbs scattered around the area as well as|
|a Divinity Statue for you to use. Once you complete a trial, that      |
|stoned will be brightened in the central structure and you'll conjure  |
|up there. In the central structure, you need to connect the stones to  |
|form a light. Some possible combinations that are minimally required to|
|proceed are given below. These are ordered from most fights involving  |
|most of the bosses to the fights involving minimum of them. As I stated|
|earlier two times, you get Style Level benefits by fighting bosses so  |
|try them                                                               |
|                                                                       |
|Blue, Violet, Green, Red, Orange, Golden, White                        |
|Violet, Blue, Light Blue, Golden, Green, White                         |
|Black, Green, Golden, Red, Orange, Light Blue                          |

|Black, Light Blue, Golden, White, Violet                               |
|Violet, Green, Blue, Black                                             |
|Green, Light Blue, White (Thanks to ~Aj Brotherton~ for the tip)       |
|                                                                       |
|If you anyhow decide to complete all the trials in this area, you'll   |

|Kill the Abysses that have gathered in here, and jump in the mirror    |
|that'll appear in the middle of the room. In the next room there's a   |
|statue on which you'll have to use something later. Presently, you'd   |
|notice that you're attacks are not doing much good on those demons.    |
|Mirror time! Run around the mirrors and you'll see that Dante is not   |
|appearing in them. One of them will show Dante's reflection. Smash that|
|one and the demons will be demised. Do it several more times until     |
|a you defeat all of them. A mirror will appear in the center of the    |
|room. Hop in.                                                          |
|There's an Hourglass in the middle of the next room alongside with some|
|more Abysses. Luckily these take damage through normal means this time.|
|Slay them all before the Hourglass is depleted or there'll be more of  |
|them. When you have trounced everyone, a path will appear to the       |
|Hourglass. Take Samsara there and leap in the mirror that'll emerge in |
|the room.                                                              |
|Now you're back in the Lost Souls Nirvana area you fought bosses in    |
|before. Enter the mirror like the last time. Do the same in the next   |
|room. Use the Samsara on the statue in the mirrors room (i.e. Nirvana  |
|of Illusions). Teleport using the mirror that'll appear this time.     |
|Sprint forward, use the Divinity Statue if you need to and enter the   |
|door to trigger the second-last boss fight with none another hideous   |
|junk.                                                                  |

|Boss Battle: Arkham                                                    |
|As usual, an attack list:                                              |
|1)Hmm..if you can call that a hand, he'll punch at you.                |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: I'm getting bored by saying it again and again. Jump away.  |
|2)Similarly, if you can call that tentacle a leg, he'll kick you.      |
|  Damage: Medium                                                       |
|  Defense: Same as the last one.                                       |
|3)Materialize his legions in a troublesome amount in the room.         |
|  Damage: They'll follow you and explode upon touching. High           |
|  Defense: Jump to avoid them & use melee combos when you get chance to|
|  clear your path.                                                     |
|When his legions are cleared up, attack him carefully jumping right    |
|away the moment you see a tentacle menacing towards you.               |
|When his health is damaged to half, Vergil will join you in the fight. |
|Now you'll not be able to use DT which is the price for having that    |
|kick-ass swordsman on your side. Rest of the fight, he'll follow your  |
|lead and throw his own swords combo at enemies.                        |
|                                                                       |
|Moving on, its time for the last mission. Take that Arkham! You were   |
|nothing but a wastage of Sparda's power.                               |
|                                                                       |

|No time for closing comments now. Will save them for later on. The     |

|Boss Battle: Vergil 3                                                  |
|Vergil's more powerful than either of his conflicts with us before.    |
|Here are his attacks:                                                  |
|1)Sword combo.                                                         |
|  Damage: High                                                         |
|  Defense: Roll                                                        |
|2)Take stance of pulling his Yamato and conjure up damaging orbs in    |
|  the air.                                                             |
|  Damage: High                                                         |
|  Defense: Run for your life. And yeah that means running away from    |
|  him.                                                                 |
|3)Transform into a demon and execute vertical Helm Breaker resembling  |
|  vertical sword slashes multiple times in a combo.                    |
|  Defense: Very High. Once you get stuck in this combo, be sure to have|
|  a high blood pressure.                                               |
|Do anything, use every item you've got. This is your last battle in    |
|this game. Attack him just after he has executed his combos and keep   |
|your eye on his stances all times. After this truly entertaining       |
|battle, you'll have the cut scene with Lady which'll follow the        |
|credits. You'd be a fool to pass them. You can slash those pesky and   |
|relatively weak demons during the credits. The current number of your  |
|executions will be displayed on the upper right corner of the screen.  |
|Get it over 100 to see an extended ending sequence.                    |

|At last! You have beaten this game. Personal Congratulations from me!  |
|But I strongly doubt you have unlocked all the moves in your first play|
|of the game. If the game didn't send you in comma for high blood       |
|pressure or nervous breakdown. Play it once more and trust me, you'll  |
|enjoy it more than before with unlocked moves and better understanding.|

|Q: I can't equip this weapon!                                          |
|A: You have to select four weapons (two fire arms and two devil arms)  |
|   near the Divinity Statues/Customize Screen in Equip Menu. The       |
|   on-the-fly switch is then made between these four weapons during the|
|   game.                                                               |

|A: Avoid & Attack. The golden rule of DMC. As writing it again and     |
|   again in the FAQ seemed boring, I abbreviated it in this form.      |
|                                                                       |
|Q: I can't use 2P mode!                                                |
|A: After plugging in the second controller, you have to press START on |
|   it to trigger the 2p mode.                                          |

|-If you are bored of the "Now Loading" screen, you can press square    |
| or triangle to shoot at it or slash it respectively. Not very useful  |
| but it helps you to keep up your devil hunter spirits during the      |
| loading.                                                              |
| (Update) Additional Info by ~Tenjinmon Ninja~: You can control the    |
| direction of slash by pressing a directional button in combination    |
| with the triangle button. Moreover, you can break the Now Loading text|
| by slashing it in vertical direction.                                 |
|                                                                       |
|-In the 3rd mission "The Devils Tower", there is a jukebox in the bar. |
| If you slash it with your sword, you'll hear a remixed version of     |
| "Lock & Load" (soundtrack from DMC1) for a short period of time.      |
|                                                                       |
|-On main menu, press and hold L1, L2, R1 & R2 together, rotate left    |
| analogue stick clockwise two times. If you entered the cheat          |
| correctly, a voice calling "Devil May Cry" will be heard. All modes,  |
| galleries and characters will be unlocked. Beware though that this is |
| strictly recommended for fools who want to take the fun out of DMC3.  |
| If you want to enjoy the game, don't use it.                          |
|                                                                       |
|-During the credits, kill 100 or more enemies to see an extended       |
| ending sequence.                                                      |

|Steel a soul for a second chance                                       |
|But you will never become a man                                        |
|My chosen torture makes me stronger                                    |
|In a life that craves the hunger                                       |

|Yearning more to hear the suffer (of a)                                |
