(The rules here are specific to this category. Go to this page to find the rules that apply to all Devil May Cry 4 speedruns.)

  • You must play as Lady and Trish.
  • Timer stops on the final hit against Sanctus in Mission 20.
  • Make sure to turn on Turbo Mode in the game's settings so it runs 20% faster.


Before you do an initial run check DECosmic's note then do the following:

  • Make savefiles before each part that you probably have issues with. You can backup and copy the savefiles ( generally in Documents\CAPCOM\DEVILMAYCRY4SPECIALEDITION\) into a seperate folder.
  • It's highly recommended to use tools like Super Trainer or Infernal Warks CT since it has an option of Area Jump to a specific room that you normally struggle during the runs.
  • If you struggle with a skip during a run, finish the run, then practice that particular skip.
  • Make splits. Download a program like Livesplit and setup your splits. It does not matter how bad they are in your first run.

Once you have completed your first run and made savefiles practice the parts you are least confident with then try another run. When you get more confident you can stop playing safe and go for high risk strategies.
