Vergil has 4 attacks:
Yamato Combo: He strikes twice with the katana's scabbard before drawing it in a horizontal slash.
Rapid Slash: A move where he dashes forward quickly while brandishing Yamato.
Upper Slash: He performs an upward draw, then slashes downward.
Judgement Cut: A distance slash attack marked by dark purple orbs.
All of these except for Judgement Cut can be dodged by jumping and Air Hiking; follow through with Helm Breaker after you jump to begin returning damage. After enough hits, Vergil will grunt loudly and be knocked back several paces; this means that he's regained his balance and will block if you try to continue attacking.Strategy
