** Many fans of both ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' and ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls/VideoGame/DarkSouls'' looked at a certain interview where he mentioned having ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' on his shelf and blew it out of proportion, ignoring the fact that in the same interview he mostly attributes inspiration to his collection of Western {{Tabletop RPG}}s and FantasyLiterature, significantly basing the ''Souls'' series on the earlier Creator/FromSoftware game series ''VideoGame/KingsField'' and the ''Literature/FightingFantasy'' game books. He [[http://skullknight.net/images/darksouls_berserk1.jpg does say]] in the interview that when Art Designer Masanori Waragai showed him his Catarina armor design, he felt reminded of Bazuso from ''Berserk'' and thought that old design was appropriate for Siegmeyer's character concept, but that's it. Despite {{Fanon}} being that so many characters, monsters, settings, and props are obvious ''Berserk'' references, the only one Miyazaki has actually talked about is more a case of coincidence than inspiration.

** Many fans Fans of both ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' and ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls/VideoGame/DarkSouls'' looked at a certain interview where he mentioned having the ''Souls'' games often talk about ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' being a primary, or even ''the'' inspiration of ''Souls'' based on his shelf and blew it out of proportion, ignoring the fact an interview where Miyazaki acknowledged that he is a ''Berserk'' reader, but that's probably a big exaggeration. For example, after mentioning ''Berserk'' in the same that interview he mostly attributes most of his inspiration for the ''Souls'' games to his collection of Western {{Tabletop RPG}}s and FantasyLiterature, significantly basing the ''Souls'' series on as well as the earlier Creator/FromSoftware game series ''VideoGame/KingsField'' and the ''Literature/FightingFantasy'' game books.

Despite {{Fanon}} being this is one of the few parallels or {{Shout Out}}s he has actually acknowleded. It wouldn't be inaccurate to say that so many characters, monsters, settings, and props are obvious ''Berserk'' references, has had ''some'' influence on the only one Miyazaki has actually talked about is more a case games, such as when he acknowledged that the greatsword artes and playstyle in Dark Souls 3 were inspired by Guts, but {{fanon}} tends to blow it out of coincidence than inspiration.proportion and treat ''Dark Souls'' as if it were practically ''Berserk'' with the serial numbers filed off.

* [[invoked]]BigNameFan: Company president and director-in-chief Hidetaka Miyazaki has ''Manga/{{Devilman}}'' and ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' on his shelf, although fans have blown this out of proportion and described the whole series as being an homage to ''Berserk'' when in fact GodNeverSaidThat. As of Bloodborne, fans are speculating that he has been on a [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft]] binge.

** After ''VideoGame/DarkSouls1'' came out, ThatOneBoss The Bed of Chaos was so poorly-received that it was said that Miyazaki had publicly apologised for it being so bad. He actually made no such apology.

* NintendoHard: A large amount of their published games throw in some particularly nasty cases of FakeDifficulty, including, but not limited to: CheckpointStarvation, KaizoTrap, numerous boss battle types, SpitefulAI, EarlyGameHell, GuideDangIt, etc.

'''[=FromSoftware, Inc.=]''' 『株式会社フロム・ソフトウェア』 is a Japanese game developer founded in 1986. Mostly known for NintendoHard games involving HumongousMecha and, more recently, their brutally addicting NintendoHard [=Action-RPGs=], ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'', ''[[VideoGame/DarkSouls Dark Souls I]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/DarkSoulsII II]]''. Generally speaking, almost every game they make tends to either go against the grain or have something to distinguish itself from the competition.

** [[{{BFS}} The Moonlight Sword]] mentioned above, is a massive sword with an immaterial blade of blue-green light. In Kings Field games it's a magical claymore or great power. In Armored Core it's the most potent LaserBlade, balancing length and intensity. In DemonsSouls it's a blade of projected magical energy, which ignores physical barriers such as shields. The DarkSouls games in turn allow it to be blocked, but grant it a SwordBeam ability. {{Bloodborne}} makes it an seemingly ordinary claymore that may be adopt the traits seen in Dark Souls on command.

** [[{{ChronicBackstabbingDisorder}} Patches]] appears in Armored Core: For Answer as Patch the Good Luck, a cowardly sniper who abandons his faction as soon as he notices his life is at risk. In Demon's Souls, he's Patches the Hyena, a [[RobbingTheDead grave robber]] who promises treasure to unwitting adventures only to trap them with perilous threats and rob their corpses soon after. In Dark Souls 1, 2 and 3 he's Trusty Patches, Mild Mannered Pate and Unbreakable Patches, all of which go through with the Demon's Souls routine. The same goes for Bloodborne's Patches the Spider, with the minor change that [[spoiler:he's literally a spider]].
*** And a notable side-note: Patches always uses the most cowardly fighting style possible when confronted. In Armored Core he snipes from great heights, avoiding direct combat entirely. In the Souls games he wields a spear from behind a greatshield (and in Demon's Souls especially, he uses a [[HealingFactor blessed shield]] and [[ClothingDamage the Scraping Spear]] to destroy your armor.
*** Whats more, Patches is always hated by the clergy, whoever they may be in the game's universe.
