I'd say I wouldn't want to have implausible fencing...gigastar said:For the record, im well aware of how their Devil Triggers work in UMvC3. It also makes an excellent canceller for things like Vergil's Rapid Slash and Dante's Crazy Dance.Daystar Clarion said:I like the way they implemented it in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.gigastar said:I vividly remember the Devil Trigger [http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SuperMode] elemental boosts varied depending on what Devil Arms you wielded.

I'd have something akin to the 'Devil Trigger [http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SuperMode]' from Devil May Cry.
Immense speed, strength, stamina and health boost as well as the ability to fly and use electricity based projectiles, but it's a form that can't be sustained and takes time to recharge.
So, say for instance, I'm pretty much an unstoppable force for 10 minutes, but I have to wait an hour before I use it again.
So whatever I fight, I have to win quickly or use the last moments of the form to retreat and recover strength.
Vergil, for instance, would get a speed boost and a 20% damage boost, while Dante wouldn't get the speed boost, received a 15% damage boost but gained access to certain abilities while in that form (including flight and electricity projectiles). Both would also recover the red portion of their health while in the form (red health can be recovered when that character is tagged out, but DT recovers it while they're in play, and significantly boosts the recovery when tagged out).
The downside is that while in Devil Trigger, neither character can build meter (the bar that allows them to pull of hyper combos), so you've got to build meter first, so you've got enough to fall back on while in DT.
In DMC3 (which UMvC3 Dante and Vergil are taken from), you only got new moves for Devil Trigger if you were wielding Nevan. And those were Air Raid, Vortex and Thunderbolt. Otherwise it granted you hitstun resistance, extra speed and slight health regen.
On a side note, in DMC1 its impied that Devil Trigger is impossible for half-demons without an awakened Devil Arm, no problem for Dante who brought Rebellion, Cerberus, Agni & Rudra, Nevan and Beowulf to the party (in UMvC3). And Vergil has Yamato. Depending on what you Devil Arm turns out as, you may want a side of either Implausible Fencing Powers, Improbable Weapon User and Implausible Aiming Skills.
But that would be a lie
