Was Griffith really an "evil" person before the eclipse or did the despair finally cause him to reach the tipping point & kill his own family & comrades?
>>
>>188274297
nah he wasn't an evil person, he was just ruthless in his goal. The only difference between him and some random warlord is that he produced actual results. Most of the shit Griffith does is actually really fucked up.

He's a bad person, but he was always morally grey. After the eclipse he was literally evil.

He wasn't pure evil prior to the eclipse, but in the process of being reborn as Femto, any part of him that wasn't evil died. However I would say that Griffith was very much a bad person, even a horrible person even before the Eclipse. Extremely possessive, narcissistic, ruthless and severely lacking in basic empathy. In other words, a born leader.

But because he wasn't pure evil he developed a severe soft spot that, combined with his childish inability to take a loss in ANYTHING, damn near ended him.

99% of anyone saying he is evil and whatnot be in they would have probably done the same thing . He didn't think of them much . They were a mean to an end.it's human nature to strive for more power and I assume it was especially clear that it was the case for Griffith Being broken and weak and then Given godhood wouldn't you have done the same ?

Some people get their kicks off killing/mutilating others so yeah i guess so.

>>188274297
Evil is just a relative concept, more so if we consider the world in which Griffith lives. Judging his action by our moral standards while he was fighting and struggling to hold his place in a ruthless Medieval world is nonsensical. I would go as far as saying that his actions morally elevate him if we take into account how other mercenary companies operated. This speculations are worthless though, because the point of Griffith's character arc is that he is meant to defy the common sense of justice and morals, he is beyond good and evil because the only thing that matters to him is his will to rule and his conviction that he is entitled to do so because of his worth and the sacrifices that he made in order to get where he stands when we encounter him for the first time. Griffith is the Ubermensch, a character that creates his own morals in a world in which lineage and hierarchy reign supreme
>>
>>188274297
I justify him doing what he did due to the fact his only alternative options were live an pathetic life taken cared of by others as a vegetable or kill thyself
The big question is if Griffith would still sacrifice everyone if Guts didn’t leave him and he didn’t get fucked in a dungeon for a few Years.

So far we haven't seen anyone activate a behelit under the circumstance of NOT having hit rock bottom.

Griffith wasn't about to sacrifice a damn thing if he didn't absolutely have to. He's pathologically against it. He normally can't stand losing anything. So he'd sooner work to figure out a way to fuck over the Godhand and take their power on his own terms. It's not even that he's nice, he's just that selfish. He'd want both.

>>188275031
well, it was the first bad thing he did without justifying it or mourning it, so yeah I would call that stepping over the line into evil.

>>188275031
Welcome to our retarded puritan system of morality. Though I will say that while the massacre of the Band of the Hawk was out of necessity, fucking Casca and making Guts watch was pure spite. So in a certain sense, it was a bit more fucked up than the rest. More personal.
>>
>>188275098
People also forget that Casca always wanted Griffith and not Guts.
>>
>>188275146
That had already begun to change from the moment Charlotte came into the picture. Guts quickly became her silver medal after that.
>>
>>188275135
The raping of Casca wasn't gratuitous, it was portrayed in such excruciating details to make the audience understand that despite being a member of the God Hand, Griffith retains part of his humanity, at least when it comes to his impulses and motivations: raping a sacrifice isn't something a God would do, it's something born out of hatred and spite, both human emotions that Griffith supposedly forsaken. The fact that he is still human is of capital importance because if he decides to turn agains the IoE, he would do so because of that humanity he has retained

That's the logic of a rapist my friend.

>>188274297
He was not evil. He lived life the only way he could, and it was "OK" for him to sacrifice people who were willing to die for his dream.
It was unquestionably evil though to condemn his soldiers to eternal torment and fuck his best friends girl, to spite him.
>>
>>188275272

Even after, Griffith is the only man she feels comfortable around. She actively rejects guts in her "Retardation" and embraces Griffith when he's around.

I'm of the belief that Griffith didn't even intend to sacrifice his friends this was all forced upon him due to the circumstances he was put in because of his white privilege and position he was given in life he should be forgiven for anything he does in the future.
>>
>>188275291
You should go re-read "Warriors of Twilight", it's clear in that chapter that the emotions of Casca towards Griffith aren't black and white, as any human being she has a complex emotional world and she is struggling to come to terms with her own feelings. Saying that she he's still interested in Griffith as a lover is missing the entire point of her character's arc

Everything else is highly debatable, but "severely lacking in basic empathy" is utter nonsense. The whole point of his character arc is the deep-seated dissonance between what he thinks he must be as a leader (uncompromising, always moving forward, unemotional) and his real self (guilt-ridden, deeply emotionally attached, and overall quite fragile). This split in his psyche keeps growing until he loses his source of emotional comfort and he completely self-destructs, "tearing himself apart", the IoE puts it.

This is the whole point of Casca's repeated rants at Guts, pointing out that Griffith is not this stony, ascended being everybody including Guts sees him as.

From my understanding, those that undergo the transformation into apostles, or in this case the Angels of the Godhand, tend to retain part of their human identity. And for Griffith, part of that was how pissed off he was about no longer being the center of the universe for both Guts and Casca. This was constantly emphasized just prior to the Eclipse. All those moments of him looking on from a distance, coming to the realization that those two, who once worshiped him, now loved one another, with Griffith coming in second to both. Left out in the cold and you could taste the frustration in him.

Raping Casca made him the most important person to both of them again in one fell swoop. Guts obsessed, and Casca insane. Neither of them could ever ignore him again. It demonstrated that his possessiveness and narcissism not only remained intact, but had been magnified to a truly twisted degree.

Oh and
>raping a sacrifice isn't something a God would do
I admit we don't know enough about the Godhand to absolutely and definitively say what's normal for them, but Slann also wants to rape a sacrifice, so that's 2/5 already.

This page really sums it. Griffith is not the ruthless, uncaring person he needs to be for his dream, so he tries to shape himself into one. He lies to himself, engages in rationalizations, but ultimately his real self still breaks him.
>>
>>188275518
I agree with what you said. Although, I think that the motivations of Griffith and Slan's actions are very different. While Griffith had a deeply personal connection with both Guts and Casca, Slan in her behavior acts more like she does towards humans in general, as demonstrated by her role in the Tower of Conviction's arc. If you want, Slan resembles a goddess like Aphrodites in the tragedies of Erupides (especially the Hippolitus): she is a force of nature that presides over a particular domain of human life, in her case sexuality, and her actions can be traced back to this. I personally think that all the God Hand's member retain part of their former selves and that's why Griffith and Slan act in the way they do, however the difference between Griffith and the other members is that they seem to accept their role as enforcer of the will of Causality while he may be harboring a rebellious intent. Of course this is just a speculation

You'll notice that Griffith himself rationalizes his relationships and attachments to others - with Guts as a massive exception - in terms that treats other people as objects that further Griffith's ends. You can say Griffith is wrong about himself, and that Guts proves that, but don't be so dense as to think that his own admitted mentality had no affect on his behavior towards people.

Yes, he lacked empathy. If anything, the crack that Guts made in his usual demeanor highlights that. Under ordinary circumstances, Griffith sees the world only in regards to how it reflects upon him and his beliefs. Even in the Toy Soldier scene, where we see him struggling with what appears to be guilt over a young soldier that revered him, he brings it back to being all about Griffith. What that boy saw in him, and what he must do in order to give his death value.

That was not all an act. It wasn't all there was to him, but it was sure as hell part of it.
>>
>>188275739
Griffith is the "blessed king of longing".
According to the God Hand anyway, but I dare say they understand their purpose and attributes best.
The main thing Griffith longs for is control, power and his own kingdom.
The fact he rapes Casca in front of Guts does match his portfolio, but his portfolio results out of who he was in life.

>>188275224
>The fact that he is still human is of capital importance because if he decides to turn agains the IoE, he would do so because of that humanity he has retained
I'm 100% convinced that ultimately Griffith's goal has become to slay the godhand and the IoE. He literally manifested the supernatural into the human world in order to kill it, and the supernatural are a consequence of negative human thought. In essence, I think Griffith wants to restore free will to humanity by killing god himself, since without it his dream is worthless.

If anything that's proof of how Griffith really felt. He wanted to kill himself rather than burden his friends. Ubik and Conrad fucking mind-pozz Griffith during the eclipse to get him to sacrifice the Falcons, and it's even revealed they've been manipulating him his entire life.

Griffith is a victim, too.
>>
>>188278149
But the moment he learned his dream wasn't dead he jumped on it.
I mean, it made sense.. it was the same he has always done: piling up corpses to reach the castle. He had already led thousands to their deaths and killed ten-thousands.
Would have been for nothing if he or his dream died; he didn't really have a choice but take another step.

Because it is ultimately about him. He's the one who gives commands and whose dream his people follow. What he does or doesn't do is absolutely crucial and decides everything else.
We know what the Berserk world is like and it's beyond unusual to see a person in power rack himself to blood like a man obsessed over what is objectively a trivial loss for a military commander. Even good people in Berserk don't lose sleep over dead literally whos, and yet this guy, who should be more immune to it than anybody, is clearly not handling it well.

As Judeau says, he's a man of contradictions. Wise and naive, ruthless and sensitive, cold and passionate, aloof and emotionally dependent, full of longing but also austere. Unsurprisingly, he couldn't maintain his own self for long.

I think he ran away from his true feelings.
Along the journey to obtaining his kingdom, he instead grew to subconsciously like being with guts more, not even in a gay way.
Being beat by him means the one person in his entire life he's felt this connection with was leaving, as well as embarrassing him in front of his generals.
Instead of being true to the fact he wanted guts to stay for him, he never told him how much he truly cared for him.
He can't handle the fact it was his own dream speech that pushed guts away, so tried to regain his dream by making his entire world colder.

Speaking of the whole Griffith raping Caska in front of Guts thing I think that’s part of the reason why Griffith’s relationship with Guts was portrayed as so homoerotic during the golden age. Griffith is all about control and his desire to control guts always had sexual undertones. Rape is the ultimate act of control and sexual violence merged into one so Griffith raping Caska to me was always about Griffith trying to get back at Guts for trying to abandon the band of the hawk and for finding love with someone else. ( right before the eclipse Griffith did try to force himself on Caska even though he was a cripple)
Even before that when Guts beat Griffith in a duel and left the band of the hawk Griffith was devastated at least partly because that meant he couldn’t control Guts, which is why he immigrated sought solace in Princess Charlotte, who is someone he could freely manipulate and control using his sexuality. I fully buy into the Griffith is gay for Guts theory for that reason.

That's a very important point. He failed his Casca rape only 15 minutes earlier.
He was pissed Guts took Casca from him (even if that's not really true with how loyal she was).
It's really no wonder she went potato.
>>
>>188274297
Its all Casca's fault.

If she had not seduced his boyfriend, Guts, he would not have lost his ties with his humanity, thus causing him to sacrifice the band of the hawk.

Griffith didnt rape Casca to spite Guts, he did it as revenge for her stealing his boyfriend.

idk if griffith is evil but he was a full blown manipulative sociopath with a schizoid personality (nothing to do with scizophrenia, schizoid means you find no value in other people aside using them as useful tools as means to and end or have any desire for interpersonal relationships)

Griffith fucking the princess was an intentionally self destructive act lashing out after Guts left. Griffith would not have sacrificed the band of the hawk before Gut’s departure, but the loss of the rock he had relied on for so long, an actual failure on his part plus what he endured in the dungeon and his utter helplessness afterwards changed him. He had no power left at all, and what he had once seen as his family now looked like fairweather friends to him—they were capable of leaving him, and so the only one worthy of his trust was himself.

Guts was within his rights to leave, but Griffith’s original plan would have succeeded if he hadn’t left.

There are times in the golden age where I came close to caring for him. At certain points in the story you feel like he really is bigger than life, like a cool older brother that’s helping you get to the top.
Someone you can genuinely look up to.
It’s all an illusion, a fucking show he put on. He never cared about a single person except Guts. He never gave a shit about anyone. Not his subordinates, not the people of Midland, not even the princess. They all served as tools and stepping stones to achieve power, and power alone. Even the act of selling his asshole was just another way to save resources.
What really hits hard is just how opposite he comes off, he makes you think that he does care, that you serve an import role in his world.
he couldn’t let his quest for power go. He sold out the people who worshiped him. He sacrificed the only person he came close to considering a friend. And he didn’t stop there, he raped the person most under his spell, a person who would give up her entire life to look after and keep him safe. Say whatever you will of the sacrifice, lie to yourself and justify it any way you want. But don’t ever forget that Griffith raped Casca just to spite Guts.
Death to betrayers. Death to Griffith.

The whole lack of free will argument only really works if you accept that there is no good or evil at all. If he’s not evil because of destiny, then he’s certainly not good either. He’s just a meat robot acting out his programming.

But we use good/evil not always to refer to some cosmic scorekeeping system but as a way to describe behaviors we want to encourage/discourage as a society, in order to manipulate the behavior of all of us meat puppets. And under this system, his actions are indisputably evil.

all he had to do was tell Guts he was different to him and ask him to stay, instead he got humiliated by getting his ass kicked by the strongest man alive for no reason and ragefucked the princess like he's some victim.

i forget, did Griffith even give a shit that Guts killed an innocent child who reminded him of himself? that alone is some heavy shit...
>>
>>188295328
Did Guts even tell him?
>>
>>188295498
either way he should have known since Adonis was killed at the same time as Julius. maybe he just figured Guts was just as ruthless as him. if thats true then Griffith is a worse person than people give him credit for
>>
All he had to do was NOT fuck the King's daughter.
He should have waited, intermingled with the nobility(which he was already doing) and eventually marry into it, becoming heir to the throne.
He just had to be patient.
Griffith was a fucking idiot.

this theme is so bitter in contrast to how Taka no Dan ended up
>>
>>188295705
would this ever have happened though? he's a man of common birth. yes he was knighted, but that doesn't change his origins. to me his bedding of Charlotte was always kind of a "fuck it, i dont care anymore".
>>
>>188291740
All i remember is boats and QAULITY. Berserk beyond the eclipse was a mistake.
>>
>>188295749
I think at best he would be "the queen's husband" at worst they find another male relative to suceed the throne.
>>
>>188295328
>innocent child
hardly something noteworthy considering the mountain of corpses that were piled up by HYW
>>
>>188296912
except Adonis greatly reminded Guts of himself

i don't think so.
i would've done the same.

only thing wrong he did was raping casca,had he just killed them I'd be pretty okay with it since they all decided to follow him and die for his dream
>>
>>188296995
no
he was horrified by the fact he killed him and that's it
he didn't give a fuck after the whole speech since he thought griffith always recognized him as a friend which subsequently led to...

Casca, she'll fuck off to grifith's cock so he can give her another crippled child

>Casca rehabilitation and her reunion with Guts
I hope they fugg like old times

>owner of Guts' behelit
Miura has had this in his pocket since ch. 1 he better do something good with it

>events leading up to taking down Griffith and Falconia
So long as he doesn't pull some lame shit like making guts the new king I'll be happy. I hope it gets a continuation or spin off, or an epilogue that shows the process of the country having to piece itself together. Then maybe it can reach old shool level of Berserk feel. It would probably have to be written by someone else though because Miura doesn't seem to have the jucie left to write much more quality and/or dark content
>>
I haven't read Berserk in almost a decade and this thread is making me realize I missed a lot of nuance with Griffith and the whole of the Golden Age part as a teen
>>
>>188297602
The teenager sees the demon. The adult sees that Griffith was right.

>childhood is realizing that Griffith is an edgelord

big cringe my dude

>>188297458
People think Casca and Guts will have a reunion...why? She appears to associate all of the trauma of the eclipse with Guts. It's been more than foreshadowed, the fairy queen tells him not to get his hopes up.
>>
>>188298239
miuras dropped all the sad shit, this is a happy manga now
>>
>>188298015
That's the same thing just more memey.
>>
>>188298442
>That's the same thing
exactly
>just more memey
to highlight how dumb the post was
>>
I think the real villain of Berserk is the thorn in Casca's heart.

Maybe Griffith had a good reason to do all he did. But that thorn don't go away. How would it? How could it?
>>
>>188295705
Well yeah, that’s the whole thing.

His plan was working perfectly but he threw it all away in a tantrum when he lost Guts
>>
>>188298015
Wait, wait, wait, who thinks Griffith is an edgelord?
If anything Guts is the edgelord.
>>
>>188298239
as the manga goes on it goes into more and more happy-go-lucky jrpg shit. So I wouldn't put it above Miura to get them back togehter. at this point it'd be better than trying to shoehorn the "tortured Guts" narrative that's been long abandoned

he would be on Myspace to this day, taking emo selfies and complaining about everything ever if he was a real person

The Golden Age movies weren't terrible.

He wasn't evil until he got his "wings". He made some evil decisions but he overall wasn't a evil person. If you want to call him evil for the stuff before that Guts can also be called evil. Most Berserk characters pre jrpg party are really grey area assholes.
>>
>>188274591
Yes. Or atleast I believe when an action has literally no benefit other then to cause harm to another for pleasure it is evil. Same with other implications. The sacrifice itself was a grey area of evil that was painted as complete evil. The demons themselves were committing the evil and would've regardless. Griffiths major evil deed during the eclipse was raping Casca.

the movies were amazing as a self contained story. all that buildup until the descent. i wish they'd continue the movie series (there were supposed to be 9) but i'm kinda giving up hope since it's been 6 years since the third.
also, i don't know how you're going to top the unbridled kino of the golden age arc.
