'''Please note:''' Quote citations should follow the '''''official naming convention''''' for Berserk storytelling units. This means that each manga release before serialization in ''Young Animal Magazine'' is called a "Revenge" and given a number. Beginning from "Sword Wind", the first chapter that was published in ''Young Animal'', the numbering starts again at 1 and each release is called an "episode".

[[YouKeepUsingThatWord The word "chapter" should not be used in place of "episode"]], because "chapter" specifically means an intermediate storytelling unit that makes up an Arc, which is the largest storytelling unit. When citing the manga, an example should state the volume number, followed by the episode number, followed by the title of the episode.

If you are referring to a TV episode of the 1997 anime rather than a printed episode in the manga, please specify "Anime Episode". It is necessary from now on to distinguish whether a quote is from the 1997-8 anime, or ''Anime/Berserk2016''.

'''Guts''': ''Yeah [...] But still [...] compared to what you're doing, me fightin' with a hundred men doesn't really matter. It ain't just you. Griffith's the same way. He's got something he'd bet his entire life on. I think that kind thing's amazing. Compared to that, If I were to go out and fight a hundred or a thousand men, it wouldn't really be any big deal. That's what I thought.''\\

'''Guts''': ''Y'know Gaston, he's my second in command. The army's not really Gaston's thing. Once the war's over, he plans to open a clothing shop in downtown Windham with the money he's saved up. He's more skilled than he looks. Nichole proposed to a woman, but she refused because she didn't want to be with a common soldier. He swears he'll get promoted to leading a hundred men soon and propose again. He doesn't care how risky it'll be in battle. Well, I guess everyone's staked themselves on lost causes. So when I look out there, it's like each one of those lights contains tiny dreams and hopes. That's the way it looks...''\\

'''Guts''': ''The blazing inferno...named Griffith. But you know, my flame aint' here. As for me, maybe I'm just warming myself by that campfire for a bit. Maybe I just stopped in by chance. As long as I have this, I'm confident I can survive any battle. That's how it's been up till now. Even before I joined the Band of the Hawk, no matter how badly the battle was lost, I myself was sure to survive. Like this time. But still, it don't really mean much. I was on the battlefield before I was old enough to understand things. The mercenary leader who raised me taught me nothing beyond how to wield a sword. I had nothin' but this! I don't wanna die, but just because I didn't wanna die, just because I didn't know more than how to use this, I kept fighting in battles.

-> Time assaults us with towering waves\\
I answer to the fading voices trolling the night roads\\
\\
I will never forget about you\\
On this road of unfulfillment, I still stand alone\\
\\
Like a wounded bird, I endure the rain with grace\\
\\
Awash in the blood of the wounded earth, we sleep\\
Oh stars, grandly recount the events of this night!\\
\\
I will never forget about you\\
I simply exist alone in this freezing night\\
\\
O unfading voices, revive now to your full strength!\\
\\
Hai Yai Forces Hai Yai Forces\\
\\
Listen, o soaring tower of darkness, at which even the wind cries\\
Shed light on you, wounded and trolling the night roads\\
\\
I will never forget about you\\
On this road of unfulfillment, I still walk alone\\
\\
Go forth! O loquacious shadows, come and guide me!\\

-> To reach new horizons we must overcome our fears and for survival we must reach a higher ground.\\

That will be a monument to all faith that god has given us and we must put our trust in.\\

Soldier on when times are tough and when you've had enough you must keep pushing on through the pain and beyond.\\
Because only then you will see the truth of what you believe is much greater than any lesson you learn.

-> After the battle, the dead and the dying, they cover the ground with despair.\\
Low lie the victims, all bloodied and battered, a blackening smoke fills the air.\\
(x2)\\
\\
Decimation, devastation, only mayhem's final remains.\\
\\
Steeped in the stench, in blood they drench, left there to rot, corpses that time forgot.\\
(x2)\\
\\
Life marches survivors away, off to fight another day.\\
Long into the distance they go, endless roads to god know where.\\
No end to the warring in sight, smoking darkness kills the light.\\
Men battling through the despair, searching for a ray of hope.\\
\\
What has been learned? What has been gained?\\
No more hope than was before, and all we're left with is more hatred.\\

And the God's hand awakens here.\\
Eve of the feast\\
Of all that you love so dear,\\
The Beherit calls\\
And cry's its bloodshed tears.\\
All around,\\
Apostles begin to appear.\\
\\
All ambition is lost,\\
And the glory that you seek,\\
You must spill the blood\\
To achieve all your dreams.\\
Sacrifice your cherished\\
And watch them all die,\\
Baptized eternal fire,\\
And hear the demons cry.
