* [[TenMoviePlots Monster in the House]] or [[TheSevenBasicPlots Overcoming the Monster]], depending on whose perspective you take. Beowulf the Geat (one of the baddest of the BigDamnHeroes) comes over to fight the monster Grendel that has been ravaging the Dane's house for 12 years, i.e. he comes over and they've got a monster in their house.

* GenreSavvy: Beowulf is remarkably unfond of [[BoisterousBruiser unnecessary combat,]] [[AManIsNotAVirgin wenching,]] and [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy getting roaring drunk at wild parties]] for a Norse hero. It saves his life in combat against Grendel, since he's awake, alert, and completely energized for his brawl instead of as drunk as the man Grendel eats.
