Griffith is the main antagonist of the manga series Berserk and its anime adaptations. He is the founder and leader of the mercenary army known as the Band of the Hawk. As a mercenary, Griffith fought in the Hundred Year War and restored peace to the wartorn kingdom of Midland and was once a close friend and ally of Guts. After being tortured, however, he used the eclipse to sacrifice his entire army and later was reborn as Femto, the fifth, newest and final member of the God Hand. He is the arch-nemesis of Guts and Casca. He serves as the deuteragonist-turned-final antagonist of the Golden Age arc, the overarching antagonist of the Conviction arc, and a pivotal character in both the Millennium Falcon arc and the Fantasia arc.

Bad Qualities

  1. To start off, it's obvious that he never cared for Guts, Casca, or the rest of the Band of the Hawks as he only sawed them as nothing but as Servants as he would want to use them as his tool for his dream to get his own kingdom which can be very petty since the fact that they looked up to him as his leader.
    • Not to mention he betrayed as he sold them as sacrifice in the Eclipse so he can become the fifth member of the God Hand.
  2. Plus he only dated Princess Charolette to feel dominante around her which was a childish choice cause it ultimately led to his torture when Griffith had sex with her.
  3. During the Eclipse he raped Casca infont of Guts with the Apostles forcing him to watch and why he did that for some reason: All to spite Guts for leaving the Band of The Hawks and for forgetting which was over the top petty and childish of him since the fact both Guts and Casca looked up to Him
    • And he's the reason why Casca went blank and cause that moment to Psychologically traumatize her for years.
      • And not to mention she Looked up to Griffith and she was saved by him since Casca was a child.
  4. He showed absolutely no remorse for his action saying that "I will never betray my dream. That is all there is to it." showing even if he commits a crime or two he will show no empathy at all for others he hurts.
  5. Speaking of Which she corrupted Guts and Casca child to a mutated like Demon fetus which haunted Guts.
  6. He only wanted to get a kingdom out of dominance and that's all.

Good Qualities

  1. Despite his flaws he is a great villain and is very well written and he still means well to the plot.
  2. Berserk wouldn't be great without him.
  3. He was right about the King of Midland wanting to have sex with her own daughter Charolette
  4. His design looks unique and awesome with Kentaro Miura nailing his feminine look on Griffith
    • And not to mention his Femto design looks awesome and gives a intimidation vibe trying to build up Griffith's intimidation.
  5. Toshiyuki Morikawa, Takahiro Sakurai, Kevin T. Collin, and Steven Staley did a amazing job voicing him.
