Guts is a warrior haunted by his past, namely the tragedy that ended in the loss of his hand, his eye, and everyone he cared about. He is WalkingTheEarth seeking only one thing: {{revenge}} against [[{{Yandere}} Griffith]], [[WeUsedToBeFriends once his best friend]], who treacherously sacrificed him and all their comrades to the evil deities known as the [[BigBadDuumvirate God Hand]] in order to be reborn as their fifth member. The world is crawling with Apostles, monstrous servants of the God Hand who gave up their humanity in exchange for power. By hunting these creatures, Guts hopes to pick up the trail of Griffith and make him pay.

There are several other works apart from those already mentioned that may be of interest to those who like this franchise. One is ''Manga/OokamiNoKuchiWolfsmund'', penned by one of Miura's former assistants Mitsuhisa Kuji, a dark medieval story emphasizing history rather than fantasy. Another is ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'', a story about half-demon female warriors who hunt shape-shifting monsters using [[{{BFS}} giant swords]]. The video games ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'' and ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' also tend to enjoy overlap with ''Berserk'' in popularity, as they share a similarly grim and fatalistic fantasy atmosphere. For a short, action-packed demon-slaying story by Miura's friend Shizuya Wazarai with an art style similar to ''Berserk'''s early volumes, try ''Manga/BlasterKnuckle''. See also ''LightNovel/ReZero'', which in later arcs is being seen as the ''Berserk'' of LightNovels in terms of tone, themes and suffering.

suffering. Alternatively, the Light Novel series ''LightNovel/TheRisingOfTheShieldHero'' has gained comparisons, as it bears similar themes and is fairly bleak, centering around a vengeful anti-hero protagonist in a dark fantasy world.
