Devil May Cry fans will remember the three-chained ice nunchaku from the series third entry. Dante acquired these after beating the Hound of Hell who offered up his soul out of respect. The tri-headed weapon returns in Devil May Cry 5 and has brand new powers. Along with ice, Cerberus has fire and lightning elements. This could be seen as paying homage to two other weapons Dante used in Devil May Cry 3 – the fire blade Angi and the electric guitar Nevan. Cerberus also goes through a type of transformation with each element. Ice has it in its standard form. Fire turns it into a spear and Lighting expends Cerberus into a whip-like weapon. The Twitter account for Devil May Cry posted a short video of the weapon in action using all three element.
3x the elemental power. 3x the style.
