Rival Evil Cole
"Power... I need more power..."

Vergil is an antagonist from the Devil May Cry series. He appears in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale II as a playable character. His in-game rival is Evil Cole.



The eldest half-human, half-demon son of the legendary demon Sparda, Vergil's only desire is to obtain more power. Discarding his human heritage and having mastered his sword Yamoto, Vergil will stop at nothing in his pursuit of his goals regardless of the consequences, even if it means killing his own brother.


  • Devil May Cry
  • Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening
  • DmC: Devil May Cry



Vergil has found that no demons have given him even an ounce of challenge. With that, he begins to find battling them pointless, for their weaknesses would not make him any stronger. Vergil instead sets his sights on fighting a "supreme being", whom he wonders is as powerful as the rumors seem to suggest. With that goal, he leaves to faraway lands, knowing he shall encounter many opponents also vying to battle him. Ready to remove Yamoto from its sheathe, he will show no mercy to those that try to stop him.


Name: Evil Cole


Connection: Both seek more power no matter what the costs, with Vergil assisting in raising the tower without any regards as to the loss of life that would result from it, and Evil Cole more than willing to use the Ray Sphere to kill even more people and gain more power. Both have also forsaken their humanity, with Vergil devoting himself to his demonic heritage, and Evil Cole seeing himself as "above" humanity. When Vergil becomes corrupted, his pale skin and dark blue veins are somewhat similar to Evil Cole's appearance. Both are also polar opposites in some respects; despite being an antagonist, Vergil still has a code of honor while Evil Cole has no honor.



Like his younger brother Dante, Vergil's attacks are based around different functions with each button, with Yamoto attacks with the Btn square button, Summoned Sword attacks with the Btn triangle button, and unique abilities with the Btn circle button. With that said, both are quite different. Unlike his brother, his Btn triangle attacks actually can cause some stun.

Once a Summoned Swords ability is in use, no other Btn triangle attacks can be used until the current one has expired. This also applies to his Level 3.
