Trivia: Berserk
  • The Bechdel Test: Amazingly, considering the setting is an ultra-bleak Crapsack World where rape is a common occurrence, it passes. Multiple times, in fact. This might explain why, at least in the West, the series has a sizable female Periphery Demographic.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • Guts and Casca's child has no name of his own and is usually called simply "The Child."
    • The Beast is also known as "Hellhound" for its appearance.
    • "Skully" is a popular nickname for the Skull Knight.
    • Farnese is known as "Farnie" to some fans.
    • "My name is Serpico. 'Serp' for short."
    • "Rape Horse" for the demonically powered horse that tries to rape Farnese. It's often used as a symbol for how excessively dark the story is.
  • The Other Darrin:
  • Fountain of Expies: Berserk has been extremely influential in Japanese fiction, to the point where Guts has become a bit of a template for "manly" characters. Caim from Drakengard, Artorias from Dark Souls, and Arngrim from Valkyrie Profile are just some of the most blatant examples.
  • Unrated Edition: In the case of the the third movie, Descent, some scenes were considered too erotic or too explicit for a regular theater audience (guess which) so two edits were made: the theatrical release that obscured some details and then the blu-ray release which has ALL of the details.
