Vergil uses a sword style based on iaido that requires a high degree of physical prowess. By increasing his concentration, Vergil can better utilize this style and perform even more powerful attacks.
The blue gauge in the upper left corner is Vergil‘s Concentration Gauge. It has three levels. The higher the level, the more powerful attacks you‘ll be able to perform.
Increasing The Gauge
Vergil can build the Concentration Gauge by landing attacks on enemies and by dodging their attacks.
Getting hit by enemy attacks or running will cause the gauge to deplete. Missing attacks will also deplete the gauge, so you‘ll have to be efficient with your attacks during battle.
This is Vergil‘s weakest strength level. Don‘t just attack carelessly; build up your gauge first
Concentration Gauge Level 1
This is Vergil‘s standard strength level. Try not to fall below this level.
Concentration Gauge Max Level
This is Vergil‘s maximum strength level. At this level, Vergil gains a significant increase in attack range and strength. There are moves that can only be performed at this level, so you‘ll need to reach max concentration to access Vergil‘s most powerful techniques.
Vergil‘s basic combo technique, which has three variations. Use the final variation to carve up the enemy with countless super-speed slashes and then deliver a final, devastating blow.

Activate Devil Trigger mode to change into devil form and unleash the demonic powers within. Vergil will change into a different Devil Trigger form depending on which weapon he is using. No matter which Devil Trigger form he is in, his appearance will change and his attacks will have extra power.
Activating Devil Trigger
The Devil Trigger Gauge will increase when you land an attack on an enemy or when you get hit by an enemy. When the gauge has three or more bars, Vergil can change into Devil Trigger form. While in Devil Trigger form, he will be stronger, faster, and can recover vitality.
Devil Trigger Stinger
The Devil Trigger version of Stinger is stronger and dishes out more hits. The Devil Trigger version of Stinger 2 will give you even more distance and hits, and deal even more damage.
Beowulf Devil Trigger
This is Vergil‘s Devil Trigger form when he uses the power of Beowulf.
Devil Trigger Lunar Phase
The Devil Trigger version of Lunar Phase has faster spins, and the finishing kick is followed by two additional rising kicks. The Devil Trigger version of Lunar Phase 2 has faster spins, more hits, and increased attack power.
