* The Skull Knight fighting Zodd, Grunbeld, and an army of Apostles so that Flora can [[spoiler:die in peace.]]
** Indeed, how the whole scene plays out is incredibly touching. As the apostles advance, Flora nonchalantly remarks on how weak she's grown for her barrier to be broken, indirectly accepting she'll be killed. Without a word the Skull Knight walks past her, jumps down to mount his horse, and stands ready to defend her. A confused Flora asks why he's risking his life to defend her [[spoiler:when she's already going to die soon anyway]], and the Skull Knight simply tells her that in that case, [[spoiler:it should at least be peaceful.]] The moment truly shows that no matter how much he hides it behind his stoicism, the Skull Knight has an undeniable HeartOfGold.

* Here's a new one: Guts on Schierke. During their [[BreatherEpisode breather]] [[BeachEpisode beach chapter]], Guts and Schierke meet each other on the beach, looking at [[MelancholyMoon the moon]] and at the ocean. They have a conversation, and along the way, Guts tells Schierke to not overburden herself with the issues of other and that she needs some time to think about herself. She tries to brush it off by saying that she's cool with everything that had already happened to her [[spoiler: which included her [[DoomedHometown losing her home]] and her mistress]], but little Schierke just can't help it and cries into Guts. He does his AloofBigBrother thing and lets her cry into him, and Schierke tells him that she feels better after doing so.

* [[spoiler: The mermaids rescuing Guts from the body of the Sea God in chapter 327. We see supernatural beings which are good in the horrible world, we also see said supernatural caring and aiding Guts and treating him as a hero.

* Just about the entirety of the manga's 329th episode. Guts has his very first encounter with an elf while imprisoned in a cell. The elf, named Chich, is just so ''happy'' to finally have someone to talk to. She goes out of her way to help Guts, providing him water to drink, warmth, and uses the leaves from her flower to heal his wounds. She's shown to be the very first "person," besides perhaps Sys, to show Guts genuine kindness without any sort of hidden agenda. And Guts, for his part, promises to plant her flower in a field with others he noticed, so that she won't be lonely anymore. [[spoiler:It makes the sight of her wilted flower the next day all the more [[TearJerker heartbreaking.]]]]
** [[spoiler: And yet, Guts still keeps his promise as best he can, even though he's still not totally convinced he didn't hallucinate the whole thing.]]

* [[spoiler: As they delve deeper into Casca's mind, Schierke and Farnese come across a badly injured, three-legged dog dragging a casket which it is very protective of.

* When Schierke and Farnese enter [[spoiler: Casca's inner mental state, they come upon a massive, black, three-legged dog dragging a metal coffin by its chains. [[AngryGuardDog The dog becomes very angry and violent]] whenever something tries to approach the coffin, as it has several arrows protruding from its body from warding off attacks.

Evidently, they eventually come across the memory of Casca and Guts making love. While funny in the moment of [[PrimalScene Farnese slapping her hands across Schierke's eyes to shield whatever precociousness is left in her]], Farnese sees and feels for herself what Casca felt towards Guts: unbridled love. To add, since it's from Casca's perspective, Farnese saw the look that Guts gave Casca in the moment and his eyes say it all. Understandably, witnessing this tugs at Farnese's heartstrings, but she's not too surprised, since she knows deep down that Guts loves Casca, and that this confirmed that Casca was very much in love with Guts too. [[TheResenter Despite her complicated feelings about Guts and Casca's relationship]], it seems that Farnese has reconciled [[GreenEyedMonster her feelings of jealousy towards Casca]].]]
** [[spoiler: Sprite Casca is also pretty adorable during this time, and even shows character growth. She first starts out bumbling around in confusion and fear (especially when Guts Dog is around) but she grows calmer as more memories of Casca's past are retrieved. Sprite Casca also takes a liking to Farnese, hopping on her shoulder to view more of Casca's memories. Eventually, as Schierke and Farnese approach the hill with the blocked out sun, they see that Sprite Casca is ''trembling with fear.'' Farnese reassures her that everything will be fine, when remarkably, Sprite Casca peeps her first few words: "There's someone I want to meet," implying that she wants to see Guts, despite what horrors lay ahead. Even in insanity, [[TheDeterminator Casca is still a fighter.]]]]

* The movie's interpretation of the love scene, though excluding Guts and Casca dealing with the former's trauma (which disappointed a lot of fans), is satisfying in its own right. If you thought the setting was beautiful in the manga, then it's drop-dead gorgeous when it's animated in full definition. The music used, a soft medieval flute melody, fits the scene perfectly, and the best part of the scene was that Guts and Casca only communicate using their body language, no spoken words. [[TheirFirstTime They're both clearly inexperienced and nervous]], but they want to enjoy the other's company and make the other feel comfortable. Guts pleasures Casca in all sorts of ways, [[SafeSaneAndConsensual but doesn't go further until he gets her approval]]. Though not as detailed as the manga, [[SexIsGood both parties are certainly enjoying themselves]], as you can tell when they [[spoiler: [[ImmodestOrgasm simultaneously]] [[TheGruntingOrgasm orgasm]] together]] and they both hold embrace each other in their afterglow. Even the talk the two have about their plans after the rescue mission is a lot calmer and quieter than the manga and the 90s anime, and the two (presumably) make love again. The scene all around served as one of the calmer moments in the climactic last movie, and it's all the more meaningful when you realize that Guts and Casca's scene [[{{Foil}} serves as a direct contrast]] to Griffith and Charlotte's scene in the previous movie [[spoiler:and serves to make the climax of the Eclipse all the more horrific]].

* A completely unexpected incident of this comes in the form of the Count, one of the most ''horrible'' minor villains in the series. A demon who has vast numbers of innocent people executed on trumped-up charges, and enjoys torturing and eating alive human beings, the Count [[spoiler:is finally butchered by Guts. His despair and agony summon the Godhand, who offer him a new body and continued life...at the price of his daughter. After looking at Theresia, and being reminded of a time when he was truly happy, he chooses eternal damnation and nothingness over sacrificing her to demonkind.

Including ''[[SmugSnake Corkus]]'', who even has tears in his eyes.
* Another one is also one of the most aesthetic and beautiful scenes in the whole story, one that not even ''WebVideo/BerserkAbridged'' could spoof: [[spoiler:the love scene between Guts and Casca. Not only the SceneryPorn makes the premises perfect but the whole dynamic of the moment was rendered in one of the most sensual and enthralling way that was ever drawn in the industry.

** There is also the impressive moment (manga only) [[spoiler: in which Guts spills his beans about being sold out by Gambino to Donovan and being raped. He is convinced Casca will find him disgusting now, but instead Casca tenderly throws herself at him and she heals at least one of Guts's mental wounds.]] From this point forward, Guts is eternally devoted to her. It's probably the most realistic and deep moment of the entire series. Remember people: many former victims of child abuse ''never'' even tell their partner anything about it and remain damaged forever. This scene must have been therapeutic for at least someone out there.
** Probably the most heartwarming part of their scene takes place afterward when [[spoiler:Casca gets upset when Guts says that he was going to leave the Hawks after everything with the Griffith rescue is straightened out, and she starts crying and hitting him. Then Guts tells her that she should come with him (after [[ThanksForTheMammary grabbing her breast]] to stop her angry tirade), even though it goes against his whole way of thinking, but that he wants to be with Casca and have sex with her a 100 times, no, a ''1000 times'' more, to which Casca responds with the cutest blush while softly calling him "fool," even though it's clear she wants it just as much. The two of them then share the cutest kiss. Aww!]]
* During the Griffith rescue operation, Guts and Casca begin acting {{like an old married couple}} [[spoiler: after {{they do}} the deed]], much to the amusement of Judeau and Pippin. There is some tension in the air when Guts and Casca show some obvious signs of jealously toward one another [[spoiler:such as when Guts gets miffed at Casca for being ''too'' concerned about the relationship between Griffith and Princess Charlotte, and when Casca casts a wary eye on Princess Charlotte when she gets physically close to Guts]], but it all gets neutralized by their obvious show of affection toward one another [[spoiler: like when Guts thought it was a bad idea for Casca to go through the secret tunnel into the dungeon because she was the commander and needed to be out of danger's way (though he was really more concerned about Casca being in danger as his lover) and when Casca gently cools Guts down and tenderly wipes the blood off of his face after he slaughtered dozens of Midland soldiers]]. The cutest part was when Casca got anxious part of the way and grabbed onto Guts' cape ("Like a lost child," he said).
* When they finally get to Griffith and saw [[spoiler: what one year of torture did to him, Griffith, filled with rage, moved his hand with the intent to strangle Guts. The latter didn't notice and hugged him close while crying. Griffith, seeing that Guts was truly sad about what happened to him, settled his hand on Guts' hand instead]].
* In the 11th volume [[spoiler:Guts battles the massive Apostle Wyald. He uses everything thing he can to finally bring the beast down. All the while his lover Casca is watching. When the battle finally ends she rushes out her eyes begin to water up with fear that Guts has finally bought it. Then she notices something and gives a trembling smile while the tears start pouring out. Revealing that Guts, despite being bloody all over the place is giving the thumbs up and smiling.

* The Hawks' harrowing combat with
the massive Apostle Wyald. He Wyald in volume 11 reveals the degree to which Guts and Casca are willing to sacrifice their lives for each other:
** When Wyald goes OneWingedAngel and
uses a huge tree trunk to grand slam Guts into the treetops so that he comes crashing almost dead down to the forest floor, Casca's first impulse--despite her obvious terror and being the ''only'' one reckless enough to do so--is to spur her horse right in the path of the monster because somehow she just ''has'' to save Guts. Then, while the troops divert Wyald's attention with an ineffective volley and cause him to lay into them, Casca tries to revive Guts by getting angry at him, slapping his face and shouting HowDareYouDieOnMe through her tears. She's still kneeling over Guts when Wyald approaches, and instead of turning to flee she draws her sword to protect herself and Guts, which leads to:
** Wyald has Casca at his mercy and is about to rape her to death with his hideous...''thing''. Casca's slapping and yelling apparently had enough of an effect that he's beginning to stir and hears what's going on. At the last possible moment, when Casca lets out a BigNo, Guts wills his battered body into action, and before you can even see what happened he's got Wyald's loathsome tool impaled on his sword. When they've both regained their footing, Casca watches speechless and trembling as Guts tells her in true DeadpanSnarker fashion that she busted his lip, but that thanks to her he's ready to keep fighting. Just let that sink in for a moment: Guts was completely KO'd, and he would have just died without putting up a fight if Casca hadn't been there, but because he needed to save her he surpassed his limits and got a HeroicSecondWind. Further into the next phase, when Wyald is bearing down on Guts, Casca tries to go help him again despite
everything thing he can that just happened to finally bring her. Judeau has to ''physically stop her'' from going, and she agonizes over the beast down. All fact that Guts never gives up or runs away.
** When Wyald's body collapses to
the while his lover earth, Casca is watching. When the battle finally ends she drops everything and rushes out her to Guts, who once again looks like he might be dead. Her eyes begin to water up with fear that Guts has finally bought it. Then she notices something and gives a trembling smile while the tears start pouring out. Revealing that Guts, despite being bloody all over the place is giving the thumbs up and smiling. smiling to reassure her. The last page is Casca embracing Guts, and it's so moving that you probably aren't even distracted by the fact that she's still half-naked from her close call with Wyald. It's also a powerful callback to when she embraced Guts and her being nearly naked does not actually detract from it at all, amazingly]].upon finding him alive after the Hundred Man Fight.

* Guts remembering his days with Casca before the Eclipse while spending the night in Godo's elf mine: "The memories of our days is still burning me up inside," is one of the most romantic, passion-filled things Guts has ever said when referring to his love for Casca, admitting that deep down it wasn't his hatred and love for battle that kept him going, but his feelings for Casca, and [[http://www.mrsmanga.com/Berserk/122.132/178/ the two page panel expressing how complete he felt with Casca just adds to his feelings of passion but also regret (note: NSFW.]]

* After Schierke dons her civilian attire, a drunkard accidentally spills his beer over her. At the moment, Guts punches the man right in the face for getting "his girl's" new clothes dirty. Not only it shows that Guts has started caring for Schierke in a completely new way, the look in Schierke's face at hearing Guts calling her his girl is adorable.
* The talk between Schierke, Ivalera and Sonia in the docks. Even if by this point we already know who is Sonia's master and what's her role in the story, the good time they are obviously having while she tells them her personal fairytale is impossible to unsee. The way in which both Ivalera and Sonia tease Schierke about her crush on Guts afterwards only increases the value.

* Guts shows a marked return to his humanity after Farnese, Seprico and Isidoro join him and Casca. Though he's still not the most friendly of guys he thanks Farnese for protecting Casca, while surrounded by trolls. Compared to his previous actions of kill anything in the vicinity that is evil and waste no words, its touching to see him slowly start turning back into the man he was before the eclipse.

The scene all around served as one of the calmer moments in the climactic last movie, and it's all the more meaningful when you realize that Guts and Casca's scene [[{{Foil}} serves as a direct contrast]] to Griffith and Charlotte's scene in the previous movie [[spoiler:and serves to make the ''horrible'' climax of the Eclipse]].Eclipse all the more horrific]].

* Continuing with their voyage through [[spoiler: Casca's memories, Farnese and Schierke learn more and more about the woman Casca once was, and experience many of her emotions during important life events. Evidently, they eventually come across the memory of Casca and Guts making love. While funny in the moment of [[PrimalScene Farnese slapping her hands across Schierke's eyes to shield whatever precociousness is left in her]], Farnese sees and feels for herself what Casca felt towards Guts: unbridled love. To add, since it's from Casca's perspective, Farnese saw the look that Guts gave Casca in the moment and his eyes say it all. Understandably, witnessing this tugs at Farnese's heartstrings, but she's not too surprised, since she knows deep down that Guts loves Casca, and that this confirmed that Casca was very much in love with Guts too. [[TheResenter Despite her complicated feelings about Guts and Casca's relationship]], it seems that Farnese has reconciled [[GreenEyedMonster her feelings of jealousy towards Casca]] - [[{{YMMV}} or at least to SOME extent.]]]]

* When Schierke and Farnese enter [[spoiler: Casca's inner mental state, they come upon a massive, black, three-legged dog dragging a metal coffin by its chains. [[AngryGuardDog The dog becomes very angry and violent]] whenever something tries to approach the coffin, as it has several arrows protruding from its body from warding off attacks. Schierke and Farnese discover that the dog represents Guts and that within the metal coffin, the last remnants of Casca's sanity are contained, meaning that on subconscious level, Casca knows that Guts is keeping to his promise of always protecting her and is aware of the damage that he has sustained from doing so.]]

** [[spoiler: Sprite Casca is also pretty adorable during this time, and even shows character growth. She first starts out bumbling around in confusion and fear (especially when Guts Dog is around) but she grows calmer as more memories of Casca's past are retrieved. Sprite Casca also takes a liking to Farnese, hopping on her shoulder to view more of Casca's memories. Eventually, as Schierke and Farnese approach the hill with the blocked out sun, they see that Sprite Casca is ''tremblings with fear.'' Farnese reassures her that everything will be fine, when remarkably, Sprite Casca peeps her first few words: "There's someone I want to meet," implying that she wants to see Guts, despite what horrors lay ahead. Even in insanity, [[TheDeterminator Casca is still a fighter.]]]]
