Enemy Files ******************************** Initially your list will be empty, but when you encounter a new enemy, its name will be added to the files. When you first meet it, you only know its name. As you fight the enemy, its abilities, weaknesses, strength, etc, and information about it will be added to the file. I'll write the paragraph about the attack the enemy does, then I'll give the method to obtain it. ================================ 2.1 Marionette/Bloody mari ================================ Paragraph 1 - They are low-class evil spirits that borrow the bodies of puppets in order to exist in a physical state.

Method - Watch them fire their shotguns. Paragraph 3 - The daggers they throw travel in a straight line. If you can see The enemy preparing to attack, you should be able to avoid being hit. Method - Watch them throw their daggers. Paragraph 4 - They will also throw crescent-shaped blades that curve round obstacles to attack you. Keep a sharp eye and watch their movements. Method - Watch them throw their blades. Paragraph 5 - If they catch you, they will not let go easily and will try to slash and gash at you neck. Wiggle the Left Analog Stick to shake them off.

If you become immobilized, quickly move the Left Analog Stick back and forth to free yourself. Method - Get caught in the 'sphere' of the war cry. NOTE - You must have Devil Trigger off.

These evil spirits have chosen deadly scissors as their shape. Method - Encounter the enemy. Paragraph 2 - These evil spirits are dependent on the masks they wear. They cannot exist without them. Method - Destroy the enemy. Paragraph 3 - Their capes are nothing then illusions created by the evil spirits. All physical attacks against them are useless and easily blocked. Method - Try to attack their cape. Paragraph 4 - When they descend with their scissors, there's a short moment of time when they are off guard. If you attack at the right moment, you'll be able to damage them critically. Method - Watch them descend. Paragraph 5 - They deflect attacks using their scissors. If you knock the scissors out of their hands, they will become defenseless. This is your chance to blast your gun at them. Method - Use Alastor to hit their scissors to stun them. You'll know if you did it successfully, as they will hold the scissors only with one hand instead of two. Paragraph 6 - If you fire at close range when their masks are defenseless, you can eliminate them with one shot. Method - After stunning them, use the shotgun from point blank to kill them with one shot. When they're stunned, they are usually facing slightly to their right, which is Dante's left. So it usually helps if, after stunning them, you walk forward and to your left before firing. This is also how you pass Secret Mission 1.

Paragraph 6 - The most effective way to fighting them is if you find a way to attack their horns, which are their weakpoints. Method - Do a jump slash while above them to hit their horns. Paragraph 7 - Their capes are nothing then illusions created by the evil spirits. All physical attacks against them are useless and easily blocked. Method - Try to attack their cape.

It's am evil sprit that takes form from its own shadows. But they can also take on other forms by changing the spells on its body. Method - Encounter the enemy.

This is when you can blast all the lead you have! Method - Watch it shoot out the spear. Paragraph 8 - The Shadow will go into a state of shock if you succeed in standing on top of its spear. When this happens the spells also lose their barrier effectiveness and allows the bullets to go right in. In another words, if you are able to blast enough bullets during this state of shock, you can defeat the enemy without trying to attack it's core directly. Method - When it gathers energy to shoot the spear, stand still. Then time your jump so that it shoots where you were standing. This will allow you to land on top of the spear. Now fire your guns.
