Berserk Hilariously Brings Guts' Dragon Slayer To Life

Perhaps there is more notable weapon in the medium of anime than Guts' Dragon Slayer from the dark fantasy tale of Berserk, a sword so large that it dwarves the warrior who is swinging it, and in a hilarious video, the giant "slab of iron" is used in a Live Action Role Playing Game. The story of Berserk has continued through the decades, with creator Kentaro Miura attempting to tell the dark tale that follows the Band of the Hawk as the soldier Guts attempts to get revenge against his former friend in the warrior turned demon in Griffith.

The Demon Slayer was acquired by Guts following the horrific events that took place within the demonic "Eclipse", a ritual that saw scores of "apostles" descending upon the Band of the Hawk and eradicating all the soldiers within it as a sacrifice to give demonic power to their leader, Griffith. With most of the mercenary band being eradicated quite horrifically, Griffith was given his power and became a member of the evil gods known as the Godhand. Guts, and his lady love Casca, were able to escape but not without some serious physical and emotional scars, with the Berserk protagonist gaining the larger than life sword of the Dragon Slayer, using it to cut through his fair share of demons.

Reddit User Hallow7 shared this hilarious video that sees two young LARPers engaging in combat, with one having the foresight to bring Guts' trademark weapon to the battle, bringing the Dragon Slayer down upon his opponent, clearly winning the fight thanks in part to the franchise of Berserk:

CLANG from r/Berserk

Berserk has gotten a lot of fans' attention recently thanks in part to the manga alluding that the "end game" of the series might be at hand, with Guts being told as much by the enigmatic warrior that helped the Band of the Hawk during the Eclipse in Skull Knight. Though we have yet to learn about if we're anywhere near the actual end of the franchise that has been telling its tale over the decades, it's a relief for some fans to know that the conclusion of the series might not be as far off as they might think.

Feasibility of Guts using the Dragonslayer

No one could swing this sword in real life but even the Mountain from GoT is not as strong as the fictional Gatsu. Perhaps no human could ever get that strong, but there are other things to show he's somehow superhumanly strong even if it's all "natural" in the manga/anime. As a skinny (relatively) 15 year old he's still swinging around a sword with speed that is clearly many times heavier than the heaviest swords used in real history.

He's also been able to stabilize the mast of a big ol' ship. His strength is comparable to Hulk levels despite being much much much skinnier than a superhero character like the Hulk. In a world that is gritty and realistic EXCEPT the supernatural demons of course, his strength not being explained by anything supernatural has always been the one "catch", but I guess that's kind of a cool, special thing about it. Just by genetic miracle, sheer will, or some other explanation, he is, without supernatural ability--many times stronger than the strongest men who have ever lived. It's kind of cool because usually characters in fiction with that much strength need a supernatural or sci fi "boost".

But yes, it's impossibly large for a human in real life to swing--really to pick up for most of us. When you factor in momentum and leverage/pendulum stuff and all that nonsense. One's forearm can get tired just waving a crow bar around in the air for a while and the metal of the Dragon Slayer is likely no less dense.

It's non-magic magic. :) :P Gatsu rules!

Also, I forget when and why he changes it up or how often he goes back and forth, but clearly Miura would sometimes just have the "clip" at the top and other times have the clip and the belt at the bottom. I'm not sure if there was a rhyme or reason for why it would switch sometimes but most other design elements are pretty consistent with his gear.

In the Sword of the Berserk video game which the story he wrote and sort of directed, he just has the clip as well--no belt at the bottom.

    Dragon Slayer


    • Tempered by the malice of the countless malevolent astral beings it has slain, and therefore capable of wounding profound astral entities[1]

    It was too big to be called a sword. Massive, thick, heavy, and far too rough. Indeed, it was a heap of raw iron.
    – Description of the Dragon Slayer[2]

    The Dragon Slayer is the massive sword Guts has wielded as his signature weapon since surviving the Eclipse.


    As a young man, the blacksmith Godot lived in a castle town far from the hut he would one day call home. When the castle town's sovereign, a king, sent out a proclamation to all of his vassals to forge a sword capable of killing a dragon, Godot's liege lord entrusted him with the task of doing so. Tired of crafting ornate weapons for nobles who seek elegance in their armaments, Godot took the task seriously, creating the huge, but unusable, Dragon Slayer. Angry at how crude and impractical the Dragon Slayer was, Godot's liege lord threatened the blacksmith's life, forcing Godot to flee the castle town and settle down at his mine.[3]


    The Dragon Slayer was kept in storage for years until it is discovered by Guts during a fight against an unidentified roaming apostle, where the Black Swordsman wields it with ease and slays the apostle in two swings, shocking Godot, who thought the sword's weight made it unusable as a weapon.[4] Embarking on a warpath against demonkind afterward, Guts makes effective use of the Dragon Slayer against evil spirits, possessed monsters, and particularly apostles. When Guts returns to Godot's abode two years later, Godot sees the wear and tear the Dragon Slayer has been put through and decides to reforge it.[5]

    When Slan manifests a rudimentary form in Qliphoth to meet Guts, the Skull Knight intervenes and notes that the Dragon Slayer has been tempered by the malice of the countless malevolent astral beings it has slain, and is therefore capable of wounding Slan's assumed form. With this knowledge, Guts runs the Dragon Slayer through Slan, causing the abrupt dissipation of her troll guts form.[6]

    In the bay of Vritannis, during Guts' battle with the Kushan wizard general Daiba, the Dragon Slayer is imbued with the power of a fire spirit of woe summoned by Schierke. Guts uses the empowered sword to deal a blazing blast to the Kundalini aiding Daiba, causing the magical beast's large water form to dematerialize.[7]


    Given the sword's incredible size and weight, the Dragon Slayer functions more like a bladed maul than an actual sword, though Guts is more than capable of using it to cut through various targets. The sheer momentum of Guts swinging it can tear anyone caught in the attack impact into pieces with one swing; this often is applied to more than one enemy at once, cleaving through multiple foes in a single swing. Even apostles in their true forms can barely stand up to the sword, and often have their bones and internal organs heavily damaged by an attack from the weapon.

    When Guts activates his Berserker Armor, his resulting inhuman physicality and ferocity allow him to use the Dragon Slayer to significantly greater effect. Standard apostles are slain in a matter of seconds, and other even larger enemies are cut down just as easily, sometimes in droves. With such superhuman strength behind it, the Dragon Slayer's cutting power becomes considerable; while wielded by a Berserker Guts, it is capable of breaking through Grunbeld's cannon fire-repelling shield,[8] and even the corundum skin of the dragon-apostle's true form, which is said to be stronger than steel.[9]

    Due to having been used to slay countless apostles, pseudo-apostles, and other malevolent astral entities, the Dragon Slayer has been tempered by the malice of such beings. As a result, the sword has become more effective against monsters and evil spirits, capable of wounding even profound entities such as the Sea God[10] and the assumed forms of members of the God Hand.[6]

    Creation and Conception[]

    Kentarou Miura originally had the idea for an Asian male with a Japanese sword and a gimmick on his left hand to run around in a setting like medieval Europe; after much thought, he decided the right ideas were the Dragon Slayer and prosthetic cannon arm. Miura has admitted that he originally hit upon the idea of a massive sword merely as a gimmick to attract readers.[citation needed] Moreover, he has noted that though large swords were featured before Berserk in series such as Guin Saga and Pygmalio, he feels they were merely drawn big; that they never carried an appropriate weight behind them or invoked realistic reactions upon being swung. With the Dragon Slayer, Miura wanted to give the impression that someone with the physique of a pro-wrestler may be able to swing it once or twice, and so he gave much consideration to how much muscle his main character would need in order to swing such a sword.[11]

    In an original design of Guts, his signature weapon was a katana rather than the massive Dragon Slayer. In Berserk: The Prototype, the Dragon Slayer bears a slightly different design, with the blade tapering outward toward its hilt to form something resembling a crossguard. Additionally, Guts only wields the Dragon Slayer with his right hand, never wielding the sword with both his right hand and left mechanical arm.


    • The Dragon Slayer is the only weapon shown thus far to wound a member of the God Hand in any capacity. However, the Skull Knight states that his Sword of Beherits can "entomb" them.[6]
    • A common misconception is that the Dragon Slayer was once used to kill an actual dragon; it has yet to be used to do as much in-canon. The manga does, however, feature an image of a decapitated dragon's head in volume 3's cover art, and a bisected one when Godot initially describes the sword.[3] Additionally, it is used by Guts to decisively overpower the dragon-apostle Grunbeld.[9]
    • Guts has wielded oversized swords since the age of six. At nine years old, he wielded a bastard sword during his first castle siege. In the years following, he graduated to a longsword, which he killed an enemy general with. At fifteen, Guts uses an oversized two-handed sword to kill Bazuso.
    • The Dragon Slayer has never been properly wielded by anyone besides Guts. It takes two Holy Iron Chain Knights just to lift it after Guts is captured, and Isidro finds himself pinned beneath it after trying to lift the weapon.[12]
    • In the Dreamcast game based on the series, it is nigh-impossible to swing the Dragon Slayer in tight corridors without it bouncing off the wall to little effect. In the PS2 game, this is not an issue; most of the action takes place outdoors, while the few indoor or underground areas that Guts goes into are spacious enough for him to use the Dragon Slayer to full effect.
