Skullgirls Beowulf guide: skills and variants

Have you just unlocked Skullgirls Beowulf and want to learn more about this character? In this guide, we explain who Beowulf is, what his main abilities are, and also our best Skullgirls Beowulf variants tier list. With our tips and tricks, you'll know everything about this fighter.

Who is Skullgirls Beowulf?

Skullgirls Beowulf is a world famous wrestling champion, most notably for defeating the warrior Gigan Grendel. After his acting career flops, he steps back into the ring to relive his past glory in the face of a new threat to the Canopy Kingdom.

Beowulf is a powerful fighter of 2 meters and 267 lbs. He benefits from a hype bar that charges with his holds, which makes his next holds impossible to counter and modifies the characteristics of some of his moves.

The character main abilities

Skullgirls Beowulf's character ability, Hype Mode, gives him a frenzy charge every 30 seconds as well as every time he grabs. When Beowulf has accumulated 3 charges of Hype, he activates Hype Mode for 10 seconds. His grabs are then impossible to counter and some of his attacks are improved.

Title Fight, his marquee ability, gives him a 15% damage boost when his HP is lower than his opponent's. In a second step, Beowulf unlocks the same bonus when his HP is higher than his opponent's.
