DMC Lines So Cheesy They’re Actually Hilarious
“Jester’s gonna spank your butt. Spank you on the butt.”
The only line in this list to not spawn from DMC’s leading man Dante (or Nero), this little number comes from the mouth of Jester, the alter-ego of Devil May Cry 3 villain Arkham. Whether Arkham is one heck of a method actor or if his other persona temporarily overwrites his personality, Jester lives up to his name and never takes anything seriously.
This particular quote comes after Arkham’s personality starts to bubble to Jester’s surface and after he threatens his daughter Lady (yes, that’s her legal name) into obedience. Jester slips once again into his buffoonish nature, while dancing, no less. However, this line belies Jester’s insane power and intelligence. The man is strong enough to match Dante and his brother Vergil in a fight, as well as smart enough to play the brothers against one another, yet his default reaction to a misbehaving daughter is singing about spanking like a buffoon. It’s the same reason audiences keep laughing at The Joker’s jokes, despite his psychopathic tendencies.
