First Playthrough

This boss is one of the reasons you should have Swordmaster Style leveled up. But if you don't, don't worry! It's still doable. It will just take a bit longer. To start off, don't be intimidated by Beowulf's size. He may be big, but Dante is faster. One thing you could definitely do is jump up and press Triangle where you will do a downward slash on his face hitting his eye. This will leave him vulnerable to more attacks and will do a good amount of damage against him. However be careful as he will flail his arm around and hit you if you aren't fast enough. The best way to avoid this is to go behind his left leg.

After he loses a certain amount of health he will go to one end of the area and stomp on the ground which will bring a cage down. He will then hit the cage towards you and if it hits you, it will do a good amount of damage. However, if you have Swordmaster at at least level 2, pressing R1 + L3 (Up) + Circle, Dante will throw Rebellion at the cage knocking it into Beowulf and it will take a good bit of health off of him. Repeat this several times until he stops. To call your sword back press Circle. If you don't, again don't worry, just roll out of the way of the cage and shoot at him with Ebony and Ivory.

When he is nearly defeated he will often go in a beserk state and use a move where he will shoot projectile feathers at you which are nearly impossible to avoid at long distance. The only way to avoid this is either getting very lucky or sticking close to him. Then, he may go in another beserk state and try to ram into you by running around the area or try and hit the ground which has an area of effect attack. This is qued by him yelling "Sparda!" and raising his fist. Lastly, during his beserk state where he runs around, he will stomp the ground and bring cages on the ground which will try and land on you. You can try and knock them into him by using Swordmaster but often he will charge into the cage making the cage hit you and adding extra damage from him running into you.
 

Second Playthrough

The strategy is basically the same, even on the higher difficulties. His homing projectile attack will do massive damage on Very Hard and Dante Must Die mode so have Vital Stars ready or be prepared to move close to him.
 

Vergil

This is easier as Vergil because the Yamato is a Dark weapon, and since Beowulf is a Light enemy it will do double the damage on him. The strategies are almost the same except Vergil will have a harder time throwing the Force Edge at the cages since it takes longer to charge. I don't even recommend trying it and just keep spamming Summoned Swords at him while dodging the cages.
