|Form||Gauntlets and Greaves|
The Beowulf is a set of flash gauntlets and greaves Devil Arm appearing in Devil May Cry 3 which originates from Beowulf the Lightbeast. It is wielded by both Vergil and Dante during the course of the game. Dante can acquire the weapon in Mission 14, while Vergil starts the game with this Devil Arm in his scenario of Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition and in Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition.
Beowulf is a set of gauntlets and greives with a somewhat animalist look. The gauntlets vaguely resemble a wolfs head, with fangs and mane. The grieves look like clawed legs. They also have glowing veins that have white light flowing through them.

Devil May Cry 4Edit
- Devil Arm (Vergil)
Like Ifrit before it, Beowulf focuses on close range but powerful hits. It boosts the wielder's attack and speed for close combat, and is able to use chargeable light-base attacks using techniques "blessed with the sacred light". Each of its attacks can be charged for greater damage, but at the cost of speed. Because of this, charging Beowulf is not recommended for fast moving opponents. Beowulf also does not have terrific area attacks, making it a poor choice for dealing with large groups of enemies. However, the pure strength of this weapon makes it one of the best to use against single opponents. Dante's Beowulf techniques do less damage than Vergil's, unless time is taken to charge them.
Dante uses the Beowulf in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. The skills packed with it are Killer Bee, The Hammer, and Volcano, along with a new ability called Beehive (which is actually a named version of his Beowulf Combo II from the original DMC3), where Dante kicks rapidly with his greaves then heel smashes the ground and thus acts as a followup to Volcano.
The updated re-release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 features the addition of Vergil to the roster of playable characters. He comes equipped with Beowulf, like Dante, and can use several of its attacks: Starfall, Lunar Phase, and Rising Sun.
