~ Vergil to Dante

Vergil is the twin brother of Dante and an antagonist from the Devil May Cry series. He appeared in the 87th episode and Season 4 finale of DEATH BATTLE!, Sephiroth VS Vergil, where he faced off against Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII. He was voiced by Marc Soskin.


The eldest twin son of the Legendary Dark Knight, Sparda and his human wife, Eva, both his life and his younger brother, Dante's were forever changed when they watched helplessly as demons killed their mother. Believing himself responsible for not being able to protect her, Vergil sought absolute power by any means necessary, going so far as to cast aside his humanity and embrace his demonic heritage.

One Minute Melee

Vergil already battled Sephiroth in Season 2 of One Minute Melee, where he ended up winning. The two would later have a rematch in Season 5, which ended in a draw.



  • Vergil is the second, unofficially third, character in the Devil May Cry series to appear in Death Battle, with his twin brother Dante being the first, and Trish being the unofficial second.
  • Vergil and his opponent are the fifth and sixth characters to have a win, loss, and a tie. The first four to achieve this were Ryu, Deadpool, Lucario and Mario, and with the next one being Kenshiro.

The others are DeadpoolDeathstrokeDan HibikiHercule SatanGreen ArrowHawkeye, ShadowVegetaNatsu DragneelPortgas D.

    • Vergil and Sephiroth are the second pair of combatants to have their One Minute Melee end in a tie, with Lucario and Renamon being the first.
  • Vergil and his opponent are the second pair of fighters to have fought against each other three times, twice in One Minute Melee and once in Death Battle. The other pair of fighters to do this are Akuma and Kenpachi Zaraki, who fought in One Minute Melee three times, with Akuma winning every time. Vergil's and Sephiroth's fights, however, all ended differently.

  • In Vergil's preview, it's stated that Vergil's healing factor is like Wolverine's, but better. In the final episode, this was changed to "Vergil can heal himself quickly, like that Wolverine guy", possibly due to the original line's unintended assertion that Vergil's regenerative capabilities were on par with or even superior to Wolverine's.
