yes that's right. Wesker doesn't teleport, he just moves too fast for the normal person's eyes to comprehend (or something like that). and in DMC3 Dante and Vergil were fighting each other at such speeds that the rain around them looked to be (very) slow motion and the rain was coming down a bit hard. if I recall correctly, that was calculated at Mach 10 to Mach 15 and this was before Dante's demonic powers fully awakened. his speed, along with his other physical abilities were increased considerably after his awakening and Devil Trigger could boost it even further.
a) It just appears in the intro cutscene. In the actual fight cutscene, it isn't present at all.
b) You could argue that the rain feat takes place during the gameplay portion of the battle, but the sequence of events place the rain feat right before Vergil stabs Dante with Yamato. In the actual fight cutscene, there's no rain feat right before Vergil stabs Dante with Yamato. Since the actual fight scene overrides the intro, the rain feat is non-canon.

This is a long time ago but I'mma throw my hat in the ring and say this is a stupid argument considering you are PLAYING the rain fight, which means you don't see the whole fight regardless, which means there's no reason the intro doesn't or shouldn't count. I've never heard this argument before... "It happened in the intro so that means it's non-canon", lolwut.
