Dante: I see a challenge here.
Scorpion: Of course you do!
Dante: Someone's in a bad mood.

Scorpion: What do you want?
Dante: Right now, you to lighten up.
Scorpion: I'll burn you!

Mileena: You look appetizing.
Dante: How come I don't meet nice girls?
Mileena: You will regret that insult!

Dante: So, what do you do? Dance?
Mileena: I kill and eat.
Dante: Suddenly, you're turning me off.

Quan Chi: Why do you fight us?
Dante: It's just the living I make.
Quan Chi: Then it will be your death.

Dante: What an interesting look.
Quan Chi: You will make a perfect servant.
Dante: Don't count on it.

Ermac: We will have your soul.
Dante: You'll have to take it.
Ermac: We will do just that.

Dante: That look doesn't scare me.
Ermac: We are not as weak as you think.
Dante: Oh, I figured that.

Johnny: And whose side are you on?
Dante: Not the demons' side.
Johnny: Well then, let's spar.

Dante: I hope you're a challenge.
Johnny: You won't be disappointed.
Dante: Neither will you.

Sonya: Uh no...
Dante: Oh, don't be so sour.
Sonya: I have no time for people like you.

Dante: How 'bout we get some pizza?
Sonya: Shove it.
Dante: Rude...

Jax: Ever heard of laying low?
Dante: Not my forte.
Jax: Pity...

Dante: Punches with those hands must really hurt.
Jax: Best you avoid 'em, then.
Dante: Not the worst advice.

Kitana: What a distasteful sword.
Dante: And you think your fans fare better?
Kitana: As deadly as I.

Dante: Let's rock, Baby!
Kitana: You're worse than the vain actor!
Dante: Ah, come on!

Kung Lao: Nice sword.
Dante: Nice hat.
Kung Lao: You'd be surprised what it does.

Dante: Let's get crazy!
Kung Lao: Don't we all?
Dante: Well, I always do!

Kano: That pretty-boy look won't save ya!
Dante: My trusted sword and guns are all I need.
Kano: Cocky, ain't ya?

Dante: You look ridiculous.

Dante: A face not even a mother would love.
Reptile: You will regret that insult!
Dante: Never.

Ferra: Can't wait for Torr to squash you!
Dante: You'll be waiting a lot longer.

Ferra: Torr here is a wonderful friend!
Dante: You'll need a new one after this.

D'Vorah: You will make a wonderful nest!
Dante: Is that all I'd be good for?
D'Vorah: Quite frankly, you would.

Dante: Now it's a party!
D'Vorah: But not for long.
Dante: I'll still enjoy it!

Jacqui: Can't be an Outworlder. You some mercenary?
Dante: Somewhere among those lines.
Jacqui: You look odd for one.

Dante: Know any good pizza places?
Jacqui: Why are you asking me?
Dante: I'm hungry. Why else?

Cassie: Sword's old-fashioned. Don't you think?
Dante: Maybe. What's your point?
Cassie: Just sayin'.

Dante: I like you already.
Cassie: If for how I look, thanks.
Dante: Let's get this party started!

Raiden: What do you want here?
Dante: Pay for having fun slaying demons.
Raiden: Fighting was never meant to be fun.

Dante: I'm on your side, Thunder God.
Raiden: Why?
Dante: That's personal.

Erron: This should be easy.
Dante: Don't hold back.
Erron: Wouldn't dream of it.

Dante: Let's see who has the better guns.
Erron: And the better reflexes.
Dante: May the better man win.

Kenshi: I sense something peculiar...
Dante: That would be me.
Kenshi: Just don't get cocky.

Dante: How can you fight me, blind?
Kenshi: With the other senses, of course.
Dante: Do put up a good fight.

Shinnok: You are a fool to confront me.
Dante: You're just like all the rest, vampire-face.
Shinnok: My powers are unmatched.

Ladder Ending:
The half-demon, half-human mercenary was more than excited to come across a wide conflict having found himself in the place called "Earthrealm". Dante rode in hell and entered a portal, believing it would take him home. Instead, he got in the middle of the siege by the Netherrealm. Being the infamous Devil Hunter for years had him intervene. However, he expected pay in return for his service. In the process, he wondered if any was as skilled as he is. Almost immediately, Dante pursued and slew Quan Chi, and then the fallen god Shinnok.
Dante was not only more than eager to return home with gold and the spoils of war--with the help of Raiden--but the Devil Hunter was inspired to use other weapons that he saw others use. Having mastered the chain spear, he now waits patiently for the one called Scorpion to find him.

Thanks to sprite-genius for the idea. He has his own series of Guest Fighters. Check them out.
I'm putting this in scraps because I don't intend to make a series. Plus, it's really difficult expecting unique abilities giving a character variations. I got bored trying to think of the interactions. So, for the characters I didn't list, I'm leaving that to whoever happens to read this.
-A few special moves are those seen in "Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3", what I see him do with Rebellion, Cerberus, Nevan, and Agni & Rudra.
-I'm sticking with the original Dante because the Dante in the reboot to the DMC series is insufferable.
-I thought Dante would try to come on to Cassie, assuming she would remind him of Trish.
-Dante loves his pizza :giggle:
-A few interaction lines come from his introduction lines in "Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3"

The ending is completely made-up. Because DMC3 and DMC4 show him using newly acquired weapons in cutscenes, I assumed that he would learn as quickly with those he sees used by the MK fighters. Plus, I thought it would be fun that Dante makes a rivalry with Scorpion.
