Everything goes straight to hell for Guts and his TrueCompanions as a direct result of [[MoralEventHorizon Griffith's actions]]]].

Also, solar eclipses only completely block out the light in one relatively small area and the light reduction gets less pronounced the further away from the center of the eclipse, but in fiction tend to block out the sun completely wherever they happen to be. Lunar eclipses, on the other hand, can be seen anywhere on the nightside of the earth, but aren't nearly as dramatic since it's just a full moon with a red tint for a few hours (though a "blood moon" is often used in werewolf fiction).
