(The rules here are specific to this category. Go to this page to find the rules that apply to all Devil May Cry 5 speedruns.)

  • You must play as Vergil.
  • Timer stops on the hit against Dante in Mission 20.
  • In Special Edition, make sure to turn on Turbo Mode in the game's settings so it runs 20% faster.


Vergil is much easier category to learn and could be good place to start when getting familar with Devil May Cry 5 areas:

  • Watch TheScruffington: Movement and Abilities Overview after you finish your first run.
  • Make savefiles before each part that you probably have issues with. You can backup and copy the savefiles ( generally in <Steam-folder>\userdata\<user-id>\601150\remote\win64_save) into a seperate folder.
  • If you struggle with a skip during a run, finish the run, then practice that particular skip.
  • You can always hover over different character and make your own route, if you don't enjoy V
  • 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.
