* Not long after the anime finished airing, Japanese game developer Yuke's created two [[LicensedGame licensed videogames]] based on the manga and using the anime's voice actors. The first, titled ''Berserk Millennium Falcon Arc: Chapter of the Flowers of Oblivion'', came out on the Sega Dreamcast in 1999; the game's English localization by Creator/EidosInteractive, titled ''VideoGame/SwordOfTheBerserkGutsRage'', had its North American release in 2000. ''Sword of the Berserk'' is an {{Interquel}} utilizing an original scenario and characters created by Miura and set between volumes 22 and 23 of the manga, though its status as {{Canon}} is uncertain. Check out the ''Sword Of The Berserk'' page for the plot summary. The second video game, titled ''VideoGame/BerserkMillenniumFalconHenSeimaSenkiNoSho'' (''Berserk: Millennium Falcon Arc - Chapter of the Holy Demon War''), came out on the Playstation 2 on October 7, 2004, being released [[NoExportForYou only in Japan and Korea]]. It adapts volumes 22 to 27 of the manga, covering the titular ''Chapter of the Holy Demon War'', but also adds an original sub-plot where a child-like Apostle named Charles forces Guts to confront and fight apparitions of his fallen comrades from the Band of the Hawk.

* In 2011, an anime film trilogy called ''Anime/BerserkTheGoldenAgeArc'' produced by Creator/Studio4C was announced as the first part of a project with the ambition of fully adapting the manga's story. The first of the three movies, ''Berserk: The Golden Age Arc I - The Egg of the King'', was released on February 4th, 2012. The second, ''The Battle of Doldrey'', was released on June 23rd, 2012; and the third movie, ''Advent'', was released on February 1st, 2013. The films got mixed reviews and strongly [[BrokenBase polarized the fandom]] over whether they were a proper adaptation. On the positive side, they gave an impressively animated and visually spectacular treatment of the series' fights, supernatural horrors, and richly detailed setting, while restoring the characters and plot events that had been AdaptedOut of the previous anime which were necessary for properly resolving the ending and setting up the continuation of the story. On the negative side, the films drew criticism for their heavy use of ConspicuousCG for character animation--more of a problem in the first installment compared to the second and third in which it looked considerably better--and especially for changing and cutting a large number of scenes relating to character development and motivation, leading to accusations of flattening the characters' personalities and thereby dulling the emotional impact of losing so many of them in the Eclipse. While the films are still considered an imperfect adaptation, there are signs that their reputation may improve over time.

* The first adaptation of Berserk was a twenty-five episode anime titled ''Anime/KenpuuDenkiBerserk'' (''Sword Wind Chronicle Berserk'') by [[OLMIncorporated Oriental Light and Magic]] that covered the Golden Age Arc and aired from October 7, 1997 to March 31, 1998. It is well-loved in the fandom as a PragmaticAdaptation that preserves the spirit of the original work, takes its time focusing on CharacterDevelopment, uses good editing and art direction to make a lot out of a shoestring production with LimitedAnimation, and features a memorable soundtrack by Music/SusumuHirasawa. This version notably has a GainaxEnding that abruptly leaves Guts hanging and rolls the end credits at the bleakest moment in the Eclipse, a shocking conclusion to the series that deliberately denies closure to the viewer and leaves them feeling the same sense of rage and grief that Guts does. This approach admittedly introduces an AdaptationInducedPlotHole concerning how Guts is still alive in TheStinger when he girds on the Dragon Slayer and embarks on the RoaringRampageOfRevenge depicted in the first episode, and avoids dealing with some important things that happen in the immediate aftermath. Still, it is a great way for newcomers who are not used to reading manga to get hooked on the series, and the cliffhanger ending ensures that once invested in the story and characters, one will feel compelled to pick up the manga and read up on the rest. An HD remaster of the complete 1997 anime is available as of April 2016, as part of a BluRay box set costing 18,000 yen, or about USD$148.
