Guts, Zodd, and The Skull Knight represent the three talent specializations available to the warrior class in Blizzard's vastly popular mmorpg. To explain for those unfamiliar with the game: Guts would be an arms warrior. He is incredibly strong and can move at lightning speeds. Warriors have a spell called charge that grants the same effect. Zodd is clearly a fury warrior. They are referred to as barbarians in WoW lore and Zodd fits the M.O. needless to say. He frequently dual wields and dresses in a loin cloth. Protection warriors are tanks and very survivable. The Skull Knight fights with sword and board, nothing flashy, but devastating by implementation. This Troper would also surmise that Griffith is/was a paladin turned wrong. The only difference is that in the Berserk universe, you can sacrifice your party for a wicked ass buff, as Griffith did. * Rrrright.. yup, he stolen everything from ''World of Warcraft'', he did, over a decade ago before anyone even THOUGHT of WoW! Kentaro Miura is really a time traveller!

* Theorem C: ATrumanShowPlot will unravel and reveal that Guts' life has been a really complex and bizarre reality show, and that everyone else was an actor except him. Likeliness: given the sheer [[BlackComedy pitch black hole "comedy"]] of this, the most likely option.

**** Well, nobody says there would be a Big Good in that war: only MagneficentBastard DarkMessiah Griffith against ulimately evil Godhand. In fact, I think that Griffith would betray the Godhand and start a war between his disciples both human or Apostle and satanists and rogue demonic Apostles of Godhand.

[[WMG: Isma is [[{{Ponyo}} Granmammare ]]]] She's quite an energetic, excitable, and hyperactive lass, so eager to learn about this whole new world she is immersed in, and is quite taken in with the very first person she comes across, while being a powerful entity closely associated with the sea and sealife. Quite like her daughter Ponyo will be a couple of millenium down the line. But furthermore, this means that the world of ''{{Ponyo}}'' is actually the future of the world of ''Berserk''. That would certainly explain a few things, such as the lack of shock and surprise among the general populace at seeing a a fish with a humanoid head, and the universal nonchalance of a devastating tsunami. Because after the merging of the worlds in ''Berserk'', things like that are now regarded as perfectly normal!

Because these plot points need to be sped and Guts' crew need a power up badly.

Because these plot points need to be sped and Guts' crew need a power up badly.badly. [[WMG: The Petal Storm King isn't going to help Casca in the way we think.]] Sure, someone - not particularly the Petal Storm King - will probably give Casca a potion that will give her her lucidity back or something, but we should know better than to believe that her deep, deep problems will go away that easily. That would be the easy part. Maybe I've been watching too much ''{{The Legend of Korra}}'' (which turn was probably inspired by ''{{Star Wars}}'', and isn't Miura a ''Star Wars'' fan?), but I thought it'd be interesting if what the Petal Storm King gave Casca was spiritual and existential guidance to help her overcome her collective trauma and struggles. It'd be a perfect opportunity to give her some more arc development apart from Guts, and I think the two of them having a dramatic confrontation over what he did to her would be good catalyst toward her spiritual journey, as well as being a good close when she's ready to confront him once again (a la symbolic sword fight, as always. And Skellig has to be a big island (archipelago?). There has to be a mystical swamp somewhere.

When Griffith agreed to become an apostle in his despair, there was no successful merger between Femto and Griffith. The reincarnated version of them that we see is not Griffith at all; rather, Femto tricked the utterly broken Griffith, killed him, and took over his life/identity. That's why "Griffith" felt no remorse for what he did to Guts and Casca, above all the other reasons, and why he did such a horrible thing to them in the first place. Alternativey, Griffith really IS in there somewhere, but he is basically a dormant spirit who lacks any sort of control over himself and cannot stp Femto. That could also be a part of the reason that Griffith ruined both Casca and Guts; Femto just wanted to break Griffith even further if possible, by forcing "Griffith" to also break both the people he cared most about. In this case, even if Femto could be separated from Griffith somehow, Griffith would be dead both inwardly and outwardly.

Added DiffLines:
[[WMG: The series will end with the founding of a new religion]] The characters will eventually discover The Idea of Evil and why it exists. At some point after this, someone will realize the best way to fight it is to convince society that their suffering doesn't need to have some external cause, and must be endured and overcome. One thing leads to another, and their universe's version of Hinduism comes along.

cleaning Captain Obvious trope sinkhole use, project thread here
In the 40K timeline, Slaanesh was the last of the Chaos gods to be formed from the unending depravity of the Eldar. The other three gods represent rage, disease and scheming, with Chaos Undivided generally bringing madness. Now consider the Godhand: [[CaptainObvious Slan is Slaanesh]], Conrad is Nurgle, Void is Tzeentch, and Ubik and Femto are Undivided. The only god missing is Khorne, the god of blood, who will be brought into being ''when so much blood is spilled, when the emotion of rage so dominates the planet that a god is birthed from it.'' Thus Zodd will become the new Godhand, and Guts will be his greatest servant, just as Khorne elevated Genghis Khan to Daemon Prince.

Trope link fix
Think about it. Both Guts and Caim are BloodKnights, both live for revenge up until a certain point in their lives, and both are a OneManArmy. It helps that [[WordOfGod Caim was heavily inspired by Guts]]. They also both lose an eye at one point and are referred as the One-Eyed Man.
