Appearance(s) Guts VS Nightmare
My sword has gotten very dull. However, it's three times as thick and does three times the damage of a normal sword. You better pray you die quickly, or this could be painful.
~ Guts

Guts is the main protagonist of the anime/manga Berserk. He starred in the episode Guts VS Nightmare, where he dueled against SoulCalibur antagonist Nightmare.


Guts' life has been hell since day one. After being born from the corpse of his hanging mother, a group of mercenaries found him with Shisu taking him in as her child, until she died of the plauge.

With nowhere else to turn to, he was trained by the mercenary leader Gambino at the age of six, and went into first battle at age nine where he made his first kill. He later killed Gambino after all his abuse (emotional, physical, and sexual) went too far.

Guts would venture of as a freelance mercenary until he was recruited into the Band of the Hawk, where he got more comfortable, and relaxed with them. But then the clans leader Griffith, summoned a group of demons killing all the clan members, raped his girlfriend Casca, and left Guts with a amputated arm and a gouged out eye. Guts would later swear revenge against Griffith and vowed to kill him.
