* MostWonderfulSound: In the 2016 anime, Guts's sword gives off a loud, satisfying '''CLANG!''' whenever it hits something, usually a monster which he had just cleaved in two.

* TheChrisCarterEffect: Many fans expressed concern that the readers would give up on the series out of frustration if Guts and the gang didn't [[MemeticMutation get off the damn boat]] soon and get Casca's insanity plotline resolved after all of these years. At least as of December 2015 they've finally reached their destination and it looks like Casca's condition will be addressed when the manga resumes, but the fact that readers have to endure another hiatus in the meantime is trying everyone's patience.

Happily the fandom has finally reached lived to see [[spoiler:Guts' party arrive on Elfhelm and get their destination and it looks audience with the Queen of the Flower Storm]] just like Casca's condition will be addressed when the manga resumes, they'd hoped, but the fact that readers have to endure another hiatus in the meantime is trying everyone's patience.on pins and needles to see what will happen to Casca in the next couple releases, and dreading when the next hiatus will happen.

** Silat is a popular character, being a redeemable Kushan who forswore allegiance to [[CompleteMonster Ganishka]] and aligned himself against [[DarkMessiah Griffith]] due to nothing more than his own moral compass. And, of course, let's not forget his cool character design and [[RazorFloss fighting style]]. Quite a few fans have expressed hope that he's fated to become one of Guts' TrueCompanions.

* FanonDiscontinuity: A few fans glance over [[RRatedOpening Guts's grand debut]] on the first page of the story [[spoiler:where he is having sex with a she-apostle]], saying that [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness it clashed with his later development in the Golden Age arc]], particularly Guts's troubled backstory concerning intimacy issues and his fidelity toward Casca. That, and some fans wonder why Guts would even have needed to [[spoiler:have sex with the apostle in the first place.]]

* BaseBreakingCharacter: You guessed it Griffith. On one side, you have the fans that admire him because of all of the outstanding things that he has done over the course of the story. They see him as a three-dimensional and complex character [[WhatIsEvil who can't quite be called "evil"]], making the argument that his LackOfEmpathy actually makes him AboveGoodAndEvil (and come on - [[{{Bishonen}} he's gorgeous looking!]]). But on the flip side, you have the fans that rightfully despise him(or at least, appreciate him as a ''villain'') because his actions are ones only the truly evil would commit. Then of course, there's the fact that he ruined everything himself because he had a pissy temper tantrum for losing a battle ONCE.

* DorkAge: Pick an arc other than the Golden Age, chances are some subset of fans has declared it to be the weakest part of the story. A number of the most stubborn fans consider ''Berserk'''s story to consist of the Golden Age Arc[[note]] (which starts on the last chapter of Volume 3 and ends about ⅔ of the way through Volume 13 some 10 volumes in total)[[/note]] and ''absolutely nothing else'', completely dismissing the rest of the story. As of volume 37 the Golden Age now makes up ''less than a third'' of the story's total length.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first three volumes feature (if you can believe it) Guts acting much darker than in later arcs, such as having sex with a female apostle before killing her. A lot of fans don't like these early chapters. Others find it refreshing to read about a protagonist with absolutely no moral compass.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Invoked by a few characters, such as when Guts told a young boy named Thomas who he saved/used as bait during the ''Lost Children'' chapter that revenge felt good and that he should try it sometime, or when Gambino told Guts in the ''Spring Flowers of Distant Days'' episodes that you're safest when you trust your own actions and not others, not even your own parents'.
