Devil May Cry Rebellion Sword
Devil May Cry Rebellion Sword. Rebellion is a massive claymore with a heavy double-edged blade, notched on both sides near the tip. In its dormant form, the pommel is a single spike, but after awakening it splits open into several. The grip is plain, but the guard is skeletal, with a skull-design on each side leading to the rib cage from which the blade emerges; on one side of the blade, the skull is that of a human, while the other uses a horned demon’s skull. Initially, the crossguard is folded in against the ribs, but it extends and the skull transform to a screaming skull once the sword is awakened by Dante’s blood.
The Rebellion is a remarkably powerful magical sword. In fact, it is the only weapon shown so far that can consistently block strikes from the space-cutting Devil Arm Yamato. The Rebellion can be infused with the user’s demonic energy which is then released in the form of destructive, physics-defying shockwaves.
Mainly, the Rebellion’s true ability is to unlock Dante’s power. In Devil May Cry 3, after Vergil impaled Dante with Rebellion, the blade came in contact with his demonic blood, unlocking his demonic power while subsequently awakening its own power and becoming much stronger.
