I have. The difference is that Leon doesn't come off as a parody, just an insufferably annoying "cool" character. Sort of like a Schwarzenegger without the charm. A Jean Claude Van Damme or Steven Seagal, if you will.
Meanwhile, DMC 3 has Dante ride a motorcycle up a wall, use said motorcycle as some kind of nunchuk, and then pose as it explodes. I can only assume this was done tongue-in-cheek, but if it was supposed to be taken as awesome in a non-ironic fashion, the people responsible for that scene need to die. Also, he's really trying way too hard to look cool, and I can only assume this is an attempt to highlight his youth by excessive posturing.
