    Did the VA of Dante (DMC) reveal he recorded lines for Sm4.5h? (https://www.dexerto.com/smash/devil-may-cry-voice-actor-capcom-star-coming-smash-ultimate-1312367)

    Did fandom just drop the whole moveset?
    Is this true?
    Probs.



    In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
    Dante appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a DLC character. His appearance is based on his look in Devil May Cry 5, althrough he uses many of his weapons from Devil May Cry 1, 3 and 4.

    While Dante has low damage inupts compared to some characters, he is a combo-heavy character, and is capable on doing long combos and rack up damage fast. He also can cancel normal moves into special moves, and some of his Smash Attacks can be improved by pressing the attack button right after the Smash Attack.

    Dante's Down B Special Move also involves him entering his Devil Trigger form for a short period of time. In this form, he becomes much more of a threat than he already is, with his moves gaining massive damage and knockback, as well as defense. However, it can only be activated when his Devil Trigger Gauge is full, and it only lasts for 10 seconds.

    Role in World of Light
    Due to his status as downloadable content, Dante does not have a legitimate role in World of Light. Instead, he is unlocked for use in the mode after freeing 10 fighters from Galeem's control. If loading an existing save file that meets this condition prior to downloading Dante, he is immediately unlocked.

    Moveset
    Normal Moves
    • Neutral - Rebellion Combo I: A quick 3-hit combo with his trademark sword: the Rebellion.
    • Forward - Beowulf Combo I: Basic 3-hit combo that ends with an upward kick, which can potentially launch enemies skyward.
    • Up - High Time: Lunges forward and slice the enemy upward into the sky. Another version of it also works as Dante's Up Special Move.
    • Down: Dante does a sweep with the Gilgamesh.
    • Dash Attack: Kicks forward using the Gilgamesh.
    • Forward Smash - Million Stabs: Dante stabs multiple times in succession, then finishes with a stab. By mashing the Attack button, Dante stabs much more times than normal.
    • Up Smash - Twister: Spins Agni & Rudra to create a flaming tornado of fire and wind.
      • By pressing the Attack button during this move, Twister becomes Tempest: a more stronger version of the aforementioned move where Dante spins upward on an enemy while twirling his dual swords, generating a flame vortex burning everything in its path.
    • Down Smash - Volcano: Punches the ground with Beowulf to erupt a small quake of light.
      • By pressing the Attack button right before this move, Volcano becomes Beehive, where Dante rapidly kicks the opponent, then smashes his foot down to create a burst of light.
    Aerial Attacks
    • Air - Aerial Rave: Dante performs a multiple sword strike combo in mid-air.
    • Forward Air - Aerial Cross: Dante channels a massive energy vortex by locking your swords in the form of an X while in mid-air and then thrust that power onto nearby enemies.
    • Back Air - Cerberus Swing: Dante swings Cerberus behind him.
    • Up Air - Charged Shot: Dante shoots a bullet with demonic power in it.
    • Down Air - Helm Breaker: A powerful overhead swing from mid-air which returns the player to the ground.
    Grabs & Throws
    • Grab Pummel: Dante grabs the enemy with both hands and hits him with his knee.
    • Forward Throw: Dante strikes the enemy forwards with his sword.
    • Back Throw: Throws the Enemy backwards.
    • Up Throw: Throws the enemy upwards and shoots.
    • Down Throw: Throws the enemy on the ground and stabs them, leaving them on the ground vunerable, just like Snake's Down Throw.
    Special Moves
    Neutral Special
    Name Description
    Pandora Dante shoots forward with the Pandora in its PF013: Epidemic form. If the B button is held, he can aim in a upward or downward angle. If the player presses back, Pandora changes to its PF124: Hatred form, and if pressed again, Pandora takes on its strongest form, PF398: Revenge. If used airborne, Pandora shoots on its PF262: Jealousy form. In Devil Trigger form, Pandora changes through cycles very quickly, and the projectiles become much bigger and lethal.
    Side Special
    Name Description
    Full Throttle Dante mounts on Cavaliere and speeds forward, running down enemies with the spikes extending from the front. While Devil Trigger is active, the attack is more powerful, through Dante is also much faster.
    Up Special
    Name Description
    High Time Dante swings upwards in the air with the Rebellion. In Devil Trigger form, Dante goes much higher while performing the move.
    Down Special
    Name Description
    Devil Trigger Dante activates his Devil Trigger until the DT Gauge gets completely empty (10 seconds). In this mode, Dante becomes much more powerful, getting a triple jump, as well as much more damage and knockback to his moves.
    Final Smash
    Name Description

    • Victory Jingle: (0:00 - 0:06)
    Kirby Hat
    Kirby gains Dante's white hair and the "Pandora" ability.

    Fighter Spirit
    Dante has a Fighter Spirit that is awarded each time Classic Mode is completed with him on any intensity level.

    Dante is the second son of Sparda and Eva, and the younger twin brother of Vergil. As such, he is a half-demon, half-human hybrid. Dante is a mercenary dedicated to exterminating demons, a mission he follows in pursuit of those that killed his mother and corrupted his brother.

    Snake's Codec Conversation
    SNAKE: Colonel, what's up with this kid?

    COLONEL: That's Dante, Snake, he's a very skilled Devil Hunter.

    SNAKE: ...

    COLONEL: Snake?

    SNAKE: Yeah. Sorry. I just thought with that white hair... maybe he found a way to reverse.

    COLONEL:...

    COLONEL: Snake, if the legends are true, Dante is one of the sons of the legendary Demon Sparda who fought back the armies of hell and closed the doors to the demon world and ours. He is very skilled with handguns and swords- not to mention he has a variiety of demon weapons called Devil Arms.

    SNAKE:...

    COLONEL: Snake I-

    SNAKE: Hey. Lets just see how the kid measures up to his "old man".

    COLONEL: Go get him, Snake.

    Palutena's Guidance
    PIT: This guy with the sword and guns is really oozing with demon energy...

    PALUTENA: I see you're fighting Dante, Pit. He's one of the children of the Legendary Dark Knight Sparda, a demon who turned his back to the demon race and swore to protect humans, whils also falling in love with one.

    PIT: So... he's a human-demon hybrid or something? And is there another one of him?

    VERGIL: Indeed there is.

    PIT: Whoa? Who are you and where did you come from? And why I feel so motivated all of a sudden?

    PALUTENA: Ah, I was wondering where you were! Pit, that's Vergil, Dante's brother. They have had their differences in the past, but it seems that their relationship has mended after the Red Grave City incident. I think they actually work together as Devil Hunters now.

    VERGIL: Indeed. The Demons killed our family and while Dante opened his business in an attempt to find out who was responsible for the attack. I... went through a darker path, admittedly. Until I was helped by him and my son, who was his partner for a good amount of time.

    PIT: Oh, okay... so I guess there's still hope for me and Pittoo.

    VERGIL: Anyways, am here to warn you: it would be unwise to underestimate my brother's power. As much as I hate to admit, Dante is brimming with demonic energy, and could easily pin you down if you're not paying attention. The slightest misstep against him could be fatal, especially if he unleashes his Demon Form. He cannot stay in that state for long, but he nonetheless gains incredible strength.

    PIT: Heh, just you watch! I got this in the bag!

    Yes, I'm going to trust a whole huge writeup from what explicitly claims to be a fan-canon wiki. I see no way I can be disappointed by this.

    Picture seems like he's hinting, "Three words"..or he's neo-dabbing.

    We can see in a few hours.

    3 Words huh?
    "No More Heroes"

    I mean, the Switch already got a spinoff from the Franchise and NMH3 will be hitting Switch sometime this year.
    Moveset could be interesting and the Light-Saber would make a nice gimmick (Hold Shield and Mash B to fill up your Battery anyone? :D )

    Also, the Music in NMH rocks.

    If I could wish for a character it would be Geno though. Highly unlikely that he is included (Maybe with the 2nd Fighters Pass).
    Biggest Plottwist / WTF Moment would be to get THE WAAAAAAA as a playable character.

    Only a few more hours...

    We'll probably only ever see a "playable" Geno if there's a new Super Mario RPG, which isn't impossible, just really, really improbable.

    I could also see No More Heroes Travis getting in.
    I mean, basically, the voice work is already done, so this twit isn't shit:
    https://twitter.com/robin_a_downes/status/1058074134196994048?lang=en

    Robin Atkins Downes is the VA for Travis......and that twit....

    Agreed, but I think a cool spin-off game needs to happen for those characters or else Sm4.5h would be Fire Emblem: The Mostly Sword Fighters With Other Game People Who Also Have Swords, Mostly.

    Personally, I think I can pitch an idea to them to take FE to the next level...of spin-off, but it would work so damn well.
