Nero in Devil May Cry: Unveiling The Demon Within

Nero is one of the Devil May Cry’s primary characters. He initially featured as a playable character in Devil May Cry 4 and later in Devil May Cry 5. Nero grew up in Fortuna and served for the Order of the Sword. It is an organization that worships Sparda as a holy knight. Furthermore, it was revealed that he was Vergil’s son, Dante’s nephew, and Sparda’s grandson. In Devil May Cry 4, Nero is a teen who inherited Sparda’s skills and uses them to hunt demons. His character has also been seen in print media for these two parts.


Nero wears a long, dark blue coat with the Order of the Sword emblem on both shoulders in Devil may cry 4. He wears a red zip-up vest over a black shirt, a red wristband on his left wrist, and blue trousers with a rose buckle belt. Nero also wears brown boots and two rings, one with an order of the sword symbol and the other with a rose design. He has the same blue eyes and white hair as Dante and Vergil.

Nero was found as a baby by Credo and Kyrie’s family and he grew up in fortuna. Then Nero joined the Order of the Sword with Credo to fight the invading demons. Nero was victorious but could not stop the demons from injuring his shoulder and Kyrie. Soon, Kyrie recovered, but Nero’s shoulder did not heal properly and became something else. It turned out to be a demonic power, and he started training it.

What is Nero’s Devil Trigger?

The Devil Trigger is a special power that demons and hybrids have allowing them to use their supernatural powers. Nero receives his devil bringer but keeps it hidden by bandages. It starts glowing before he shoots the vicar, Sanctus. After he meets Berial, the demons ask if the arm signifies Nero being a demon, to which Nero says, “Don’t ask.” It could be that he doesn’t know what to believe about himself. When Nero defeats Agnus for the first time, he doesn’t want the mad scientist to look at his arm. When Nero was about to be killed, the demon blade repaired itself and gave Nero the power and ability to use the Devil trigger. After he is healed, Nero accepts his extraordinary powers and aims to use them to protect Kyrie.
