Beowulf attacked Dante when he enterred Temen-ni-gru's torture chamber, sensing that he had "Sparda's blood." Dante blinded Beowulf when he defeated him, and when Beowulf tries to chase down Dante's scent, he instead found Dante's brother, Vergil. Assuming him to be Dante, Beowulf would try to "annihilate every last blood relation of Sparda". However, Vergil immediately killed Beowulf, causing the demon to fall apart as he realized his mistake.
