Should we unspoiler the Idea of Evil's entry in the Characters' section? It's unspoilered on many other trope pages.

It is basically the ultimate spoiler, since Miura himself said it was too much of a giveaway of plot too early. But it might not be canon, so I'm not sure if it matters anymore or if it will ever be touched on again specifically.

There's an entry on the page

Empathic Weapon: The Berserker Armor changes shape to match its wielder, taking on a skull facade for Skull Knight and turning into a face similar to the Hellhound for Guts.

"taking on a skull facade for Skull Knight"

Where is this seen/implied, I seem to have missed it.

We don't know what the original shape of the berserker armor was. It is possible that the skull shape was there originally, but considering it's ability to change shape depending on the wielder it is also possible that it took on the skull shape when the Skull Knight wore it. It is not, however, explicitly stated that this was the case, we only know that he was the previous wearer of the armor.

So, I don't get it. From what I have seen on this site, hurting or killing children is considered crossing the moral even horizon, or being a complete monster, etc. But this page still sees Guts as a sort of Anti-hero. The Punisher is an anti-hero, and he would never kill kids.

Correct me if I'm wrong but all the children Guts harmed were already possessed/demonized/whatever the word is and were hostile.

If you're talking about Rosine and her elves, he had to kill them or else be killed. In the case of Adonis, Julius' son, that was accidental; he didn't mean for that to happen. Guts hasn't crossed the moral event horizon by killing a child because the times that he did were by accident or in self-defense not out of malice.

How was killing Adonis an accident? Seems like a moral event horizon to me.

It was an automatic reaction; his whole life he was trained to kill without asking questions first. He heard a noise outside of the door and as soon as he realized someone was watching him; he reacted. If you need more information look at the Berserk wikia.

Ok, i think i get it now. Another question though, what's up with the the little fairy/elves like puck? They feel out of place and too cartoony. And what is the point of Puck being nude?

Do you think that Guts's life story would qualify for Deus Angst Machina or is it a bit too much?

Ok folks I shifted the YMMV tagged tropes to the YMMV tab for this work. I tried to keep lines intact as best as I possibly could that used the YMMV tropes as part of the line.

Permission to fangasm (modestly) about the new anime?

How can we put a reference to Götz von Berlichingen in here? I mean, that's who Guts was based on.

I think I read somewhere that was actually a coincidence.
