** "[[GagPenis His penis]]. It was almost too big, too thick, too long to be a penis, bit it was a penis nonetheless."[[labelnote:explanation]]This parody of the Dragon Slayer narration comes from a panel in a {{hentai}} doujin illustrating Guts with a monstrous GagPenis slung over his shoulder in place of the Dragon Slayer, also showing Schierke's WTF reaction. Funnily enough, Miura once quoted Susumu Hirasawa interpreting the Dragon Slayer as a PhallicWeapon, and while he didn't explicitly state that was his intention he ''didn't contradict it either''.[[/labelnote]]

* Why did they make Casca white?![[labelnote:Explanation]]Casca, who was subject to ButNotTooBlack (or in her case, AmbiguouslyBrown) in the Golden Age trilogy, appears even lighter-skinned in the opening credits and the flashbacks in the first couple episodes, which a lot of fans got pissed about. This turned out to mostly be the result of using a high-contrast bloom effect for some of those scenes, and she looks about as tan as she did in the movies when she is shown in the present, but the complaint still stands that they shouldn't have made her look that washed out in the first images we see of her. The artists actually made her ''substantially'' browner in the opening credits from episode 11 onwards, as if they had finally realized the problem themselves and decided to correct it.[[/labelnote]]

* "Muh dream, Guts."[[labelnote:Explanation]]Griffith's motivation for becoming a member of the Godhand and sacrificing his comrades is his lifelong dream of ruling over his own kingdom. This phrase is often used to mock how Griffith justifies his own actions by citing this motivation.[[/labelnote]]

* The True Black Swordsman[[labelnote:Explanation]]Guts shares his [[RedBaron moniker]] with Kirito, the protagonist of ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', which has become massive SnarkBait among anime watchers but nonetheless remains popular. A massive FandomRivalry exists between the two ''Berserk'' and ''SAO'' because of it.[[/labelnote]]


* Potato Casca.[[labelnote:Explanation]]"Potato" is a slang term for people with intellectual disabilities such as Down's syndrome, first used in the 2005 comedy film ''Film/TheRinger'' in which con man Steve Barker says "I can count to potato" into the mirror while practicing pretending to be mentally disabled in order to compete in the Special Olympics, and subsequently turned into a meme. It's a joke about Casca's regression to the mental level of a pre-verbal child as a result of her trauma in the Eclipse, a state in which she has spent an increasingly large portion of the series.[[/labelnote]]

* [[https://i.redd.it/zlganyqrf70z.gif This gif]] has become quite popular among detractors of the show as a perfect example of how cheap and shoddy the animation can look at times. Many people who have not seen the show genuinely wondered if it was a fanmade animation for just how bad it looked. Also, people have pointed out that it looks like Guts's abs are where his pecs are supposed to be.


* Griffith Observatory[[labelnote:Explanation]]On the 21st of August 2017 a solar eclipse started in America, one of the main places to watch it was a place called Griffith Observatory. In the anime and manga of Berserk an eclipse happens where the Godhand picks Griffith to sacrifice his friends and become Femto before raping Casca. Fans of Berserk have joked that "People are going to die".[[/labelnote]]

** [[https://imgur.com/yGBYqDP Griffith says he doesn't remember the Eclipse because he was drunk, now chooses to live as a gay man.]][[labelnote:explanation]]This mock headline is a parody of actor Creator/KevinSpacey's notorious response to allegations of sexual misconduct from Anthony Rapp in 2017, in which he apologized while stating that he didn't recall making sexual advances toward then-14-year-old Rapp because he was drunk at the time, and said in the same announcement that he was coming out as gay, which many commentators took as a cynical misdirection tactic. This reference plays up Griffith's memetically ambiguous sexuality while making a "Griffith did nothing wrong" joke.[[/labelnote]]
