Bolverk was a most fierce warrior that the Demon World has ever produced. His skills in swordsmanship were once unmatched.

But one day during the time of two demon masters Mundus and Argosax that were unleashing their own legions of devils onto the Earth, Bolverk challenged the Legendary Dark Knight, Sparda who betrayed the Demon World and fought with the humans. The two great demon warriors fought, and Bolverk lost.

Bolverk's Revenge



After Dante first defeats Freki and Geri before entering the streets of Uroboros City, they return to Bolverk, waiting atop a skyscraper.

Bolverk later reappears in the underground temple ruin, where he challenges Dante to a duel. Dante chases him off and continues through the ruin, eventually meeting with Lucia.

Bolverk later reappears as Dante climbs Arius's tower, and this time Dante destroys him. It is not made clear if Bolverk serves Arius or not.
