Our story begins with Grendel at a mead hall, slaughtering 30 men because he is left out of their fun and drinking.
After hearing about Grendel's murderous spree, our hero, Beowulf, decides to travel across the sea with his men to kill the monster.
Uh-Oh! Grendel's about to kill Beowulf in his sleep, just like he has to many of Hrothgar's warriors.
But wait! Beowulf wasn't sleeping! He was planning a surprise attack. Using his bare hands, he rips off Grendel's arm and leaves Grendel to die.
But, the Danes' celebration didn't last long, as Grendel's mother was out for revenge. So, Beowulf had to go to the lair of Grendel's mother to kill her, where he was attacked by many sea monsters.
Luckily, Beowulf found a massive, magical sword that was able to kill Grendel's mother. After doing away with her, he found Grendel cowering in the lair and finished him off as well.
