Mission 7: Easy orbs
Want to collect 4,300 Red Orbs in about twenty seconds!? At the start of the mission, destroy the rocks to the left of you. Proceed into the tunnel and also destroy the rocks that are there. You will see the big red crystal near the Secret Mission. In order to get the most orbs, start with the Stinger then immediately go into Devil Trigger mode and quickly mash away. Once done, press [Start], go to "Systems" then "Retry Mission". This is the easiest way to get a lot of Red Orbs in a short amount of time.
If You want to defeat a Blitz as Nero do this: first to lower the Blitz "electricity shield" quickly, use charged pistol shots with Devil Trigger activated. The most effective method seems to be as follows.
Charge a shot.
Go into Devil Trigger.
Release the shot, maybe a few more.
Turn off Devil trigger, and repeat.
This will quickly give you Super Smokin Stylish before he has even dropped his shield. This will work even with a level 1 Charge Shot, and should be much easier if you have level 3. Once his shield his gone, use Devil Trigger again, and use the Devil Bringer to devastate him. Three throws should be enough to send him into "red mode". Once he goes red he will try to grab you and suicide himself to seriously drain your life, or kill you. Shoot normal shots at him to get more Smokin Stylish points at this point, and finish him off handily.
If You want to defeat a Blitz as Dante do this: use Royal Guard style along with the Gilgamesh gauntlets. While the Blitz is in his yellow "electricity shielded" state, get close to him and press [Melee] + [Style] repeatedly and quickly. You will be performing a punch and canceling it with a Royal Block very quickly. Think of the [Style] move as the attack. Try to constantly use [Melee] + [Style] repeatedly. You will raise the letter grade of your style meter with each hit, and quickly lower the electric shielding. You are basically hitting the shield yourself, then blocking that hit so fast that you cannot see it happen. Again, just press [Melee] + [Style] at the same time. This may be somewhat tricky at first, but eventually becomes easy. Once his shield is lowered, quickly switch to swordmaster style. Use Real Impact uppercut with the Gilgamesh gauntlets at least twice. Throw in a Kick 13 if time permits, and/or a Shocking. He will go into his overdriven "Red Mode". Quickly switch to Lucifer and perform Bondage. If all is done correctly you should finish him off and get a huge stylish ranking out of one Blitz.
Here is a cool little trick to defeat Sanctus inside of Sparda in Mission 20. While Sanctus is airborne in his shield, get close and break it with sword attacks just like earlier in the game. However, he will sometimes block with the Sword of Sparda. When he does this, use the uppercut technique to break his guard. If you are skilled you should use the Devil Trigger while he is in the air to use a special combo to force him to the ground. If you fail to do the air combo just let him fall to the ground. You may be able to get a few sword-based shots in but do not try to rely on this because he may escape. At this point, use the uppercut in Devil Trigger form, if at all possible. Afterwards he will go back to being airborne again, in which case you should drop the Devil Trigger. After you have broken his health down to about the 10% to 15% mark, he will use a charging sword attack (however, if you have perfected the aforementioned combo, you may bypass this). Defeating him requires timing. At the precisely the correct moment of his charge towards you, uppercut and break his guard. Again, as soon as it is broken get into the Devil Trigger uppercut and finish him off. In the second battle against Sanctus, as the False Prophet, timing is once again crucial. All you must do is uppercut his attacks away.
