I'll start with some CL stuff which has quite a few options. I already listed 'no upgrade' and 'no legion power up' in the other topic but I need to redo those and take proper notes for walkthroughs. I'll list the rules and purpose behind each run, because of how many there are and the reasoning behind them. You don't have to have a purpose though.
-Can be done on normal or hard.
-Side B must be completed.
-Japanese or English versions allowed, but are separate categories. Some things might not be possible in both versions.
-No upgrading for Sieg or legions.
-You CAN get Thanatos, because that requires collecting all the pieces, but cannot upgrade so it will be stuck in Baby form. However, its assist can still briefly slow down time. This will be necessary for certain parts of the run.
Purpose: Pretty standard challenge run stuff. Simply raises the difficulty.
No summon/Legions May Cry
-Upgrades and assist allowed, so you can get all the legion bonus stats and moves.
Purpose: "If you love DMC, you'll...probably still hate CL."
No summon or assist
-There may be exceptions if progress becomes impossible.
Purpose: "But some people have the power to summon and enslave monsters called "Chaos Legion", at the sacrifice of wandering souls.."
Victor hates legions and their users. Wouldn't want to upset the him further.
-Can only do damage with summoned legions.
-Can use disband to dodge attacks.
Purpose: Tactical summoning.
Single legion runs
-Use 1 legion for the entire game.
-Exceptions if progress becomes impossible.
-Can use Thanato but due to the way his forms upgrade, you'll only be able to use Baby form (starting form).
Purpose: Put each legion to the ultimate test.
Legions always summoned/All out brawl
-No disband. Legions must always be on the field.
-If destroyed, can use soul recovery.
Purpose: It's what Ono would have wanted.
I could probably add + versions to most of these, but will do so after I've confirmed every run here is even possible.
Not many options for Arcia, so no need to describe any purpose.
-Simple. She only has stat and special bullet upgrades.
-Special bullet allowed.
*Guns hurt anything so it's easily possible, but say goodbye to your fingers.
-Kicks don't have dodge or jump cancel.
-Can link into Lie Down and use ground rolls but do not shoot.
-Kicks hurt most things, so their shouldn't be any issue with progression. If not, just pull out guns for that one purpose.
Special bullet only/Theory only
I seriously doubt this is possible, and is just an idea for now. You don't get enough bullets early game so if something doesn't die you're screwed. Maybe if you found enough recovery items and only went for targets it could be remotely possible but even then I doubt it.
With max stats it's probably far more possible, as you'll have high attack power and many bullets. Years ago I made this video showing how you could hit target generators with Energy Bullet. As you can see, the bullet travels insanely far. Arcia also has double jump from the start which is why many of these are possible.
