Asmus Toys Devil May Cry 4 1/6th scale Nero Limited Edition 12-inch Collectible Figure

Devil May Cry is a series of video games set in the modern day, developed by Capcom, created by Hideki Kamiya, and produced by Shinji Mikami. Originally intended to be a sequel in Capcom's Resident Evil series, Devil May Cry has been cited as the beginning of a sub-genre of action games called "Extreme Combat", which concentrate on powerful heroes fighting hordes of foes with a focus on stylized action. The success of the video game series has led to the creation of comic books, novelizations, an anime series, guides, collectibles, and a variety of action figures. As of 2011 there are four games in the series.

Nero is the main protagonist in the fourth installment of the Devil May Cry series. Little about him is known, except that he was raised in the city of Fortuna as an orphan and taken in by Kyrie's and Credo's family since childhood, growing into young adulthood together. Nero is a Holy Knight in the Order of the Sword, a religious order that worships Sparda and fights to protect the world from demons.
