* WetwareCPU: Some of the stories had the killing machines attempt to use organic brains to introduce more fuzzy logic into their tactical computers. Later stories say that human-computer fusions usually outperform the Berserkers, which sometimes helps cover for the relative weakness of human ships.

** ''Berserker Fury'' is a space version of the Battle of Midway. Painfully the same as the RealLife battle, except IN SPACE! (And the future. [[UnfortunateImplications With the A.I. Berserkers who want to destroy all life as the Japanese]].)

* ExactWords: A historian is forced to load Berserker fighters with human engrams that will serve as decoys for the Berserker-piloted craft. When questioned whether the engrams are warlike, he points to one who was turned away from the military for being half blind, another who was a mild-mannered poet, and a third who did serve in the army as a behind-the-scenes supply officer. Turns out he's talking about [[spoiler:[[AcePilot WWI flying aces]] Mick Mannock, Albert Ball and [[RedBaron Manfred von Richthofen.]]]]

Now that he has a majority interest in the decision-making, he can make the Berserker do what he wants while it has no choice in the matter.]]

Not to be confused with [[TheBerserker crazy bloodthirsty norsemen]] or [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 Warriors of Khorne]], or [[Wrestling/JohnNord the wrestler the Berzerker]], Creator/FredSaberhagen's ''Berserker'' series is a collection of short stories, novels, and collaborations with other writers dealing with city-sized, spacefaring robots intent on destroying all life in the galaxy. The Berserkers themselves are relics of an ancient war between two now-extinct alien species.
