* Someone mentioned above that Griffith my sacrifice her, using his status as a member of the Godhand to bend the rules to allow the sacrifice (since she's not really a "loved one")...however, strictly speaking no rule bending would be required for HER TO SACRIFICE HIM!!!!! The trigger for this would likely be the realization that he never loved her. This realization would likely also turn her into a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, trying to euthanize the entire universe so that no one else would ever have to feel a broken heart like hers.

Surviving his mother's hanging, getting picked up by mercenaries twice, even winning when gambling with his soldiers. Guts has displayed luck that's unusual.

[[WMG: If the series is ever completed, it'll have a happy ending.]]

The Idea of Evil exists because people needed a reason for their suffering, but that doesn't mean they want something to actively make them suffer. The "reason" they need isn't "What is making me suffer?", the reason is "What is ''the point of'' my suffering?" The Idea of Evil's plan is not to make everyone miserable for no reason, that would go against its purpose. Its plan is to force all of humanity to endure a degree of suffering that they feel would be a fair trade for an amount of happiness, it's just that there's a huge disparity between the value of happiness and the value of pain: offer someone fifty bucks if they'll let you cut off one of their toes, and they'll probably tell you to piss off; offer them a million, and you'd get at least a few takers. Offer to make sure that they, their friends, and their family are all set for life, and they might gladly offer you their whole leg. The thing is, the Idea of Evil is the only figure that knows the exchange rate and it doesn't ask permission or consent, so to everyone in the Berserk universe, it's just an insane amount of suffering with no apparent benefit.

Especially when the game they're in is meant to make the player feel like a completely unstoppable OneManArmy... Yep, Guts is already one, but surely the player will want it that not even demons can stop them...

My belief is indeed that the Skull Knight IS the Petal Storm King and he's just acting as Guts' CynicalMentor in order to test his mettle and to help him unleash his full potential, in order for him not to do the same mistakes he did back in the days. He might be an [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]] to Guts in the end and ''will'' help him bringing Casca back.

Let's all remember that this is probably JustForFun and an overdue ThrowTheDogABone that Guts really deserved, and remember that TropesAreNotBad. Fearing that Guts becomes a MarySue because of this? Fair play is fair play, the Godhands and Femto have been enjoying their VillainSue luxury for quite some time, [[CatharsisFactor it's OK to 'switch place' for a time.]]

[[WMG: [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors Berserk Musou]] will have a WhatIf story where Eclipse is averted or thwarted]]

It's ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'', and Koei has been known to make some WhatIf with better outcomes. While the story won't end after Eclipse and the birth of Femto, I think they will at least give us a chance to see what happens if Eclipse GET prevented. Ways to do it:
* By doing certain tasks before Eclipse, Griffith can be convinced to even refuse the Godhands' offer, or just make the Godhands never appear by not getting him onto DespairEventHorizon.
* Guts endures the demonic onslaught and then kills off the majority of demons or even the Godhands AND Femto in the first place. The Skull Knight saw no reason to save the day. However, the price is, Casca was still damaged. But at least the Godhands will never bother humanity again.
* The ultimate one: Guts accomplishes all those while saving his friends and preventing Casca from being damaged, proving that he's the ultimate, unstoppable {{Badass}} of Midland.
