"[...]The Qliphoth. It should bear fruit soon. And with this new form of mine... I'll be the one to take it. And then, your reality will become what i want it to be.[...]" ― Nightmare Todd

A location from Devil May Cry 5.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Qliphoth is the Tree of Death, a demonic tree that bridges the demon and human worlds when it sprouts in full. Its roots hunt and consume humans, and once fed sufficient blood, it bears a fruit which gives the power of the Demon King to whoever claims it, making him a divinely powerful demon. As it is a giant tree that only grows in the Underworld, its roots points towards the sky, and its branches dig into the land.

History[edit | edit source]

TFR/Season 2[edit | edit source]

Todd Howard, using his most unique skill (the Mind-Link) to achieve a higher degree of power and reaching his second form, was all for the purpose of putting his sights in acquiring the fruit of the Demon Tree Qliphoth, which he believes will allow him to bend reality to his will.

While his servants assault and distract TFR, he climbs through the demonic tree (although perhaps not exactly alone) in Hell and claimed the fruit. Todd ascended beyond his quasi-human self, and even demon self, to almost escape comprehension. His power is unimaginable and as he meditates, soon reality will become the Howard Reality. Yet this may be nothing but an illusion, as his shortcoming in power as a human might not have lend the Sin Fruit to grant him the amount of power he wanted.

In the end, as he lost more and more of his Mind-Links, he wasn't able to maintain his power, and fell to the demonic brothers who came down to hunt him.

TFR/Season 3[edit | edit source]

Todd Howard wasn't able to fully control the power granted by the fruit, which is what caused small reality abnormalities. When Todd died, all that power was released, making reality really unstable. It was at this point that Chris-chan used the Focusing Stone to seize control and force the power of the Dimensional Merge Todd had inadvertently been using to awaken in full.
