The solution contains 3 sections: DMD run with s rank, no hits and all items, written list of items found, items i used during boss fights and tips (as shown in videos but without item help).

To unlock dante must die you must first finish the game on normal and then on hard. After this you can select your difficulty. Pick normal if you want to grind out some extra items before trying dante must die. You can do this as many times as you want before picking dante must die. You get to pick anydifficulty everytime you finish the game. I grinded out items using these videos which are a 100% item and S rank DMD run with no hits. All credit goes to joch1 for the videos and for extra tips on for enemies shown in vidoes see video descriptions in youtube. The rest of the videos can be found on his channel.

If you dont want to use the videos and just need the items here are a list of items i have found during the game and all credit goes to Brian David Kacaba(Vesperas) whos full guide on items can be found at

Items are listed in sections which are Untouchable, Holy water and then devil stars locations and after the missions in order for that item they can be found.

Items i used during the game. I advice restarting a level if you use an item and die as the item will be lost and wasted. Any boss tips mentioned are credited to joch1 and are his tactics from videos so deserves all credit. Will only mention for bosses which have a clear stratergy and not just dodge and attack. I attempted not to use any items but vital stars till later bosses as i would rather of struggled with griffen than have no items left for nightmare and mudus.
Started with 21 untouchables
32 holy waters
30 devil stars
1 vital star(can only buy 1 from shop at a time and cost 5000 red orbs max price in DMD)
100 yellow orbs (ended game with 70 so you dont need alot. Also i reset level if i used more than 15 in a row to make sure i had enough).
100,000 red orbs ( dont need this many just enough to purchace what you need).

Common enemies: i tryed not to use times on them as if you can heal and return to area with a yellow orb after death. Some enemies will show a timer which when run our activates their DT so try and kill all enemies in this time and if you stuggle use a holy water. Some use DT without a timer so be careful of red or electrified enemies. Any extra holy water i had in mission 21 and 23 i used to end levels faster (had around 15 at level 21).

Phantom 1: 1 vital star

Nelo angelo 1: 1 vital star, 1 devil star (avoid at all cost when his sword lights up and use inferno when close).

Phantom 2: 1 vital star (for both fights ifrit best to use with jump attacks. Inferno also takes off good damage if aimed near mouth).

Griffeon: 1 vital star, 1 green orb near opposite door (used grenade laucher from distance only when he fought on ground just dogged air attacks. Griffon can also get stuck doing bomb raid attack if he does it near walls or toward circle platforms he makes).

Nelo angelo 2: 1 vital star, 2 holy water, 2 green orbs(above chalice on platform, below chalice near exit to level.)(i struggled in this fight if you get his health down to half id advice use of a untouchable if you have extra).

Griffon 2: 1 vital star, 2 devil stars (destroy the wing he sends at you asap with DT and stand on platform above door to make griffen land there. climb to top of mast nearby when he does and at top DT hangun quickly. Takes off alot of damage in one go when he takes off jump back down to make him re land).

Griffon 3: Vital star 1, 2 holy water, 1 untouchable ( use handguns when he at distance high above and when flying low or on ground use meteor level 2 for most damage.)

Nightmare 1: 1 vital star, 2 devil star, 2 holy water (Use slow ifrit attacks on him (hold y and dont let go till attack) as quickest way to kill him without brecking orbs making them red (doubles his defence)).

Nelo angelo 3: 1 vital star, 3 untouchables, 3 holy waters ( good tips shown in videos but i prefered to used untouchables and use ifrit rush attacks or general punches to finish fight asap and holy waters help to take him down quicker and somethimes interupt his attacks).

Nightmare 2: 1 vital star, 3 untouchables, 6 holy water ( same as 1 but also note holy water doesnt work unless the core is showing and if red damage is halfed).

Nightmare 3: 1 vital star, 5 untouchables, 4 holy water (same as 1 and 2 but i chose to abuse untouchables to finish fight faster as this most stressful for me).

Mundus phase 1: 8-10 devil stars, 1 vital star (the DT attack takes of alot less damage at full DT than i expected so whenever i was close and blocking orbs gone i used 2 devil stars and then used DT then repeated when close).

Mundus phase 2: 6 untouchables, 2 holy water (his defence is very high so abuse untouchables and try to stay on platforms as you cant activate another till one ran out so make sure your safe when untouchable runs out).

Mundus phase 3: 2 untouchables, 1 devil star ( fairly easy just attack till trish arrives and use devil star to get energy for guns. JACKPOT!)

If you stuggle on early bosses id advice grinding more items to make all bosses fairly easy. I did a total of 5 playthroughs before starting DMD.

If you have anything to add that i may have missed or have any suggestions to improve solution let me know and ill add it. If you think it would be useful to link all 23 mission videos to this guide from joch1 let me know in comments just thought it would take up too must space. Good luck with dante must die mode hopfully the extra items will help make it more bareable.
