This is probably one of my favourite cutscenes from DMC3, for the way it so wonderfully demonstrates just how much Vergil’s style and demeanor differs from Dante’s own. He doesn’t best Beowulf in combat and then have the big lug give him his blessing and his soul in weapon form. He just kills him without a second thought, before taking what he feels is rightly his. He doesn’t try to show off, or imitate his favourite Hong Kong action flick like I’m all too certain Dante would have done if he had got a cutscene for acquiring Beowulf. All he did was brutalise Beowulf with his usual calm and collected demeanor, and then he doesn’t even care to look back up on the body after he’s just sliced it in half with it’s own goddamn soulweapon. It’s so far and away from the various cutscenes where Dante bests a boss and then watches as they all eagerly hand over their souls to him so he can proceed to have some ridiculously silly show offy montage with said soulweapon. It’s a fantastic way to show the contrast between the two brothers and I simply love this cutscene for it.
