I made a Vergil/Dante respect thread quite some time ago so I thought I would do a Nero one. Nero has a bad rep, he is hated by many fans and the aura that surrounds him on who he is, where did he come from hasn't been answered and with this crappy new DMC game coming out we are only going to have to wait. I like Nero, I think he is an interesting character (somewhat) but it's his power that is really cool.
Nero vs Dante
Just to get a multitude of feats out of the way in one clip. Nero fights Dante (who is toying with him) and he displays strength feats, speed feats, accuracy feats such as drop kicking Dante across a room then jumps back and fires a shot at him that would have tagged Dante mid-flight if he didn't block, whipping the giant stone sword, punches Dante across the room then appears right next to him punching Dante's face into a small crater in the ground, kicks the giant stone sword out of the statue's grip and ultimately getting told by Dante he underestimated Nero.
Nero really didn't display too many speed feats in the game. He was able to run along Echidna despite moving through the forest and ducking and jumping over obstacles and rebounding off trees. He also displays a minor accuracy feat shooting Echidna's seeds.
Catches the Knight's attack with a book then ducks and weaves around his attacks.
This clip is a bit long holding the clip I wanted and the clip of Nero's Devil Trigger awakening. The 1st clip shows Dante's speed and reflexes being capable to handle multiple demons flying in and attacking him. The 2nd clip shows a bit of his durability and healing.
Nero has a plethora of strength feats in the game. (See fight with Dante for more)
Nero puts a bunch of burning buildings out with a swing of his sword and blocks Berial's attack attack easily and over powers him without using his demon arm.
Nero whips Bael around and then punches him killing him. He then punches one of Bael's brothers sending them back into the gate.
Nero manages to hold Echidna from going into the gate briefly before she breaks a part of her body off to escape.
Nero in a fit of rage smashes the ground with a few punches. Also shows a bit of speed and skill here holding off multiple blitzing angles.
Nero's best strength feat in the game. He leaps high in the air and grabs the false Savior's face crushing it and causes the immediate area to rumble with a shockwave.
Nero with one arm manages to defeat a group of demons.
Nero defeats Sanctus when wielding the Sparda sword and saves Kyrie. It also shows a bit of Nero's speed too.
