Can I get an F in the comments for Gaston? The anti-Corkus
“Gaston?! Why are you still alive, you fuck?!”
So... Which one of you is Goku?
Damn it he should be at his Clothing shop F
He was self aware in his final moments. Truly a man among men!
Rip Guts's second in command
None of them deserved it
No none of the band of the hawk deserved the eclipse.
You’d have to be pretty fucking evil to deserve suffering the most horrible incomprehensible pain possible in hell for infinities. Even if Corkus deserved to die no one deserves that.
Griffith you know because he sacrificed
\*god has entered the chat\*
He died doing what he loved. I bet he was happy.
He was a dick. But I still like him, so he didn’t deserve it.
No one deserved the Eclipse, not even Corkus.
No. But I'm less saddened by what happened to him than the entire rest of the band of the Hawk
You cry a lot when you’re alone…don’t ya, Casca?
Man ninjas be cutting onions in here
When serpico was introduced and the scene where guts and him were fighting on a thin terrain i thought he is judeau and he somehow survived but after realising I am totally wrong 🥲 F!
Main man still went out like a fucking hero though
It’s been a while so I can’t remember if Corkus did any unforgivable shit or if he was just a misunderstood dick. I do remember feeling moved by his death though. Like focusing on him was necessary. It further made the eclipse feel like a great equalizer of nightmarish unfairness — another unstoppable turn of the unfeeling, hellish wheel of causality, indifferent to petty mortal differences.
He is mostly absent from battle scenes, which eludes to him being cowardly and unskilled in warfare. Most likely hiding in a group of allies. But boasts of his prowess, considers himself a peer to Guts in combat, and takes far more credit than is due.
His introduction was him and a few others attacking Guts. He hung back and let the others get slaughtered when it was his idea to mug Guts.
He died being by being a horny idiot.
pretty sure he knew it wasn’t real; but he knew he was going to die anyway; so he just gave up
But Is this enough to be sacrificed and to be eaten alive in front of evil Gods along with all your friends?
There are plenty of people i do not Like, but the ecplise... Man, guts was swimming in Blood by the end of It.
Off course not, people just want to hate on him when most would probably be as coward as he was because lets face it: NO ONE WANTS TO GET KILLED
No of course not. I'm just less sad about what happened to him than everyone else.
He was one of the best even before Guts. By the way, how about Rickert? Do you think a child is any stronger than a full-fledged adult? We literally didn't see that brat fighting. But we count him as one of the best regardless.
Put yourself witnessing the eclipse before calling him horny.
None of them deserved it 😭
Not at all.
No. Despite his harshness, he was the only one with balls to call everyone out on their shit
Honestly, he’s my favourite hawk member just because of that.
I don't think anyone involved in the eclipse deserved any of what happened to them.
He may of been a huge dick and he may of tried to kill guts in the beginning but no he didn’t deserve the eclipse he was likable in some moments and he didn’t take no shit
I mean, Casca also tried to kill Guts in the beginning.
No one at the eclipse deserved what happened there
I don’t think being an ass earns you the death penalty. With that logic we’d have way less issues with overpopulation…
Corkus was a dick head, but almost nobody deserves what happened to the Band of the Hawk
Corpus was a dick, but noone deserves that...except Wyald.
No. He was a huge dick, but you can’t deny that he made some excellent points. Dude said it like how it was, and was good in a fight.
He was a jackass, but no.
No, but he was dumb for not thinking about how strange it would be for a naked women to be in with a bunch of monsters and being unharmed.
I'd argue that the dude was so broken by what he just witnessed, he didn't give it much thought.
He convinces himself its all a dream so its not really him being dumb enough to fall for it, he just doesnt believe anything is real anymore.
This is the answer.
Which was probably the more logical decision
Yeah it felt like a willful gesture of ignorance of last resort
For real it's something inconceivable that he had no prior experience to fall back on. Like how would any of us have reacted lol
We all think we would be the guts of the situation... But no. We are a bunch of Corkuses.
He had gone insane and delirious from seeing his friends be slaughtered by demons and having the one guy he looked up to be the one to essentially sell him out. At that point, most humans would lose their mind and probably act irrationally and Corkus was never the sharpest sword in the shed.
Imagine not having a sword shed, smh
An excellent band
truth is that most of us would react like Corkus and not like Guts
This is the correct answer.
I mean if you're about to die and you see some titties then you're probably thinking fuck it lol. Might as well have one last good moment.
Id like to believe he at least got some
I mean she had transformed as soon as he put his head in her chest but sure lets be optimistic lol.
I mean, he wasn't going to make it either way. Might as well rest your face in some tata's.
I took it as he decided itd be better to enjoy his last moments than resist, he knew it was fake imo.
True true that has crossed my mind in the past but its still one of my favorite moments in berserk tbh and it's hard to forget about. Anyway you spin it its still in a way comical.
Well he was slowly going insane there
Your stupidity is concerning.
I already know
Nope. The whole notion of the Berserk world is that Causality affects all, and what would otherwise be your personal destiny in life is instead overridden by the fate Causality dictates for you. So it's never about what you do, it's only ever about what Causality has in mind for you.
Corkus's role was to be one of the many sacrifices for Griffith's ascension to the Godhand. He shared the same fate as Pippin, who was in so many ways his opposite. It never mattered whether Corkus acted like a saint or a much bigger jerk than what he was, he was always destined for the same end.
Now we can look at things in a different way and ask whether his life earned a fate like what he got had Causality not been in place. The answer is still no. He may have been a jerk to Guts, a selfish bastard, and a disrespectful individual, but that's hardly a state requiring such an epic karmic destiny.
(Edit: Spelling, punctuation, capitalization, a word... must proofread next time...)
No. He was a total dick, but definitely didn't deserve that.
No…none of them deserved it
Not in the slightest, I still want to beat him til his legs don’t work, but he didn’t deserve what he got.
No. He was a dick but his insecurity was understandable given his environment. No one deserves a death like he got!
Where is this corkus hate coming from? Tf
No, and to be honest Corkus was down to earth. Pretty average dude and a 100 man slayer joins the party and ruins you going from poverty and fighting everyday to royalty id be pissed off too
He was a dick, but he never left his friends side. Not even when griffith was captured and some of the hawks ran away
Nobody deserved the pain they went through in The Eclipse. Even if Corkus was a dick, he did not deserve to be betrayed by Griffith like this.
Corkus stan coming in here… he was mean to Guts, that’s the only thing we see him do that can be considered bad, and it’s certainly not worthy of what the eclipse puts you through. It’s very clear the reason he resents Guts is because of an inferiority complex. Corkus hates that Guts was just this powerful force he could never be. He hates that Guts would walk away from what anyone else would want, because to Corkus it’s indirectly dismissing what he’s gained too, because Corkus compares himself to Guts. It’s why Guts’ stoicism irritates him so much too, because why should Guts get to brood, as if he’s had it worse than Corkus (Guts almost certainly has, but no one else in all of Berserk knows exactly what happened to him as a child). At the same time, in his own jerkish way, he asserts that it’s not Guts’ fault for Griffith’s downfall as a way to reassure him while also trying to undermine his importance for this same resentment.
So, yeah, he glowered at him and mocked and demeaned Guts, but that doesn’t mean he deserves hell itself.
And I know he says he tried to kill Guts when they were on the same side. He didn’t. He was just being a dick and trying to hurt Guts’ feelings. Killing Guts would have doomed the Band and himself in countless battles.
No one deserves something as gruesome as that.
no one deserved what Griffith did.
I couldn’t stand Corkus but even he didn’t deserve what he got. It’s one thing to die on a battlefield fighting for something, it’s another to be sacrificed to a bunch of demons and then devoured.
No one did. They were all good loyal men till the end. Corkus was only human with all his imperfections
He was a dick but given his background it was understandable why he is and why he loved to be in the band especially when they were fully in the midlands army and high royalty. Wanting a comfortable life and hating guts for leaving it all behind.
He didn't deserve it at all really.
No one deserved what they had to go through…
Tbh corkus was my favorite character in berserk before he died
nobody in the band deserved it. what they deserved at the very least is to die chasing their own small individual dreams they signed up under griffith to achieve their own goals in life they signed up for war against other armies risked their lives to earn and live a simple life. what griffith did is snuff out those dreams and those dreams no matter how small Guts envied those at a single time in his life. its why he hate griffith so much ppl put their life on the line to bring griffith closer to his dream so that they can attain their smaller dreams But what griffith did inatead is snuff out those dreams just for the sake of his own.
I don’t think so. To me he seemed to honestly look forward to living comfortably as a noble after being a mercenary for so long. Yes he was a dick, but i do respect he was honest about not liking Guts. I respect that he didn’t continue trying to pull stunts to kill Guts and just grit his teeth. I also give him a plus because he was noticeably nice to Rickert
Nobody deserves the Eclipse lol
I didn't like him, but no.
He may be a jerk of all things, but he doesn't deserve a horrible death.
No man; indeed, he was a dick, but he was our dick.
Well no, none of them deserved it at all.
Corkus might have been a dick but he was also loyal to the band- although we know where that got him.
Something I really like to think about is how the deaths of Judeau and Corkus shape their characters, though. I think they reach the pinnacle of their development during the eclipse- Corkus ultimately meeting his end by fleeing the reality around him, and Judeau dying somewhat peacefully beside Casca after giving his all to protect her life. They're both so painfully human.
He didn't deserve it just like most of the band. I mean their ALL killers but yeah
None of them did!
He didnt deserve it but the way how he went out was probably the best outcome than the rest of the band.
Nah, but at least he got to die in some titties. It is interesting to note that for all of Corkus’ criticism of Guts, Guts always listened and took him seriously. He was a dick, but he was understandable and fair in much of his discontent of Guts from his perspective.
I remember being especially disturbed by Corkus' death, not really sure why tho
I think part of the point of Corkus was to shows that NO ONE deserves the eclipse.
Hell no he was just kind of an asshole, he didn’t deserve anything that happened during the eclipse
Did anyone deserve it?
i dont think any of em deserved it but his death was the most based. at least he died in between some tiddies
Corkus might’ve been asshole, but not even he deserved something that horrendous done to him.
For a former cutthroat, Corkus was actually a pretty stand-up guy. And I think Guts had much more respect for him than he let on. Corkus was the only one aside from maybe Casca who would call him out on his reckless BS behavior.
Not a question of deserve, it’s just the causality my friends
Guts loved Corkus no different from the rest of the Hawks and Corkus loved him. It was more of a familial love where it's like "you can pick your friends but you can't pick you family" because he always imparted guts with food for thought and even if they didn't get on they still protected each other. Corkus had every opportunity in battle to do to him what he did to Donovan and her never did.
“Deserve has nothing to do with it.” -William Munny
Nobody deserved that.
he wasnt a dick, he was just upset his friend was leaving and reacted with anger because he didn’t understand why, corkus was a good guy and guts knew why corkus acted like tht
I miss Pippin😞
Corkus was literally a normal dude.
Corkus is us. If you think you're guts, you suffer from delusions of grandeur. Corkus was a man who worked hard to have a normal prosperous life where he wasn't constantly risking his life. He in now way deserved to be mauled to death by monsters.
Absolutely no one deserved anything that happened in the eclipse. Genuinely shocked that's something even worth discussing?
Corkus was an asshole. But if assholes deserved to die, and so gruesomely, most of the people in the world should be dead by now. Which is dumb.
About as much as Casca did
He’s a prick but I really love Corkus. He stands out from the other Hawk members because he doesn’t like Guts and isn’t afraid to call out Guts’ behavior. I think Guts appreciated it too because he doesn’t talk back to Corkus
Osama Bin Laden wouldn’t deserve an Eclipse man
Yes. He always treated Guts like shit for absolutely no reason and wanted to try and kill him multiple times. Fuck Corkus
He was honest though. Takes a lot of balls to be upfront.
Especially upfront to someone like Guts lol that really takes balls
That's different than being a straight dick head
Not really. It's usually part of the same coin.
Not really. He's just an asshole
I don't think he hated guts later on. If you remember in the tavern he got angry with guts when he said he was leaving.
Yeah and then when guts fought Griffith he said watch your back on the battlefield
Yeah but corkus is always all talk and I feel like he just didn't want to say he would miss him.
That was toxic lol XD
Just saying 😂 I'd sacrifice corkus ez
He tries to kill guts like 2 or 3 times. Honestly if Griffith didn't clearly like guts I wouldn't be surprised if Corkus tried to kill Guts again. Then verbally abuses Guts every chance he gets for no fucking reason for 3 years. He is literally that bully you probably had except he tried TO LITERALLY FUCKING KILL YOU AND JUST LIKE THAT BULLY OBVIOUSLY DOESN'T REGRET IT OR APOLOGIZE!
10/10 character though
Fuck no just because he was a douchebag he defenitly didn’t deserve to get killed the way he did and suffer in hell for all eternity
Yes, he was a vermin
Yes, he was always annoying from start to finish
Yes, he deserved to die with his face in tits.
Yes he did. Was a cunt every damn time he was on page
Preach. Hated that little bastard
Yes fuck his annoying ass
Holy shit you got me😂
corkus is a dick but i kinda like his character, hes well written
corkus was a big asshole but not at the point to deserve something like the eclipse
Lol....he was secretly jealous of Gut's ability to leave the Hawk...in the 90s anime I remember how he ranted on about how they've come this far and why Guts wants to throw it all away ..even in the film he went on about how Guts will never be Griffith...loved how Guts said thanks and decided to leave....even complained about the look Guys always had on his face....in his own way Corkus did value Guts as a member of the hawk's but remained cold and antagonistic towards him through and through because he's someone he envies...
Not even Corkus deserved that.
No but wow he was such a tool
I don’t think any of them deserved it. But he was a dick so…..
No. None of them did
No but I never liked the guy
I’d have to say he had it coming. Stay humble..
No. He was an asshole, but he was a Hawk all the same. None of them deserved to get slaughtered in such a way.
Nobody deserved that. Everyone in the band of hawk were so loyal to Griffith. They sacrifice their safety just to breakout Griffith and then that bastard sacrifice his own crew his own family, the only people who trust him to the evil gods just because he jealous of Guts and want to make his ambition come true even if it's mean to walk on his own family corpses.Griffith deserve horrible death! I hope what he did will bite his ass someday.
It's like seeing the basic "bully" get killed in a horror movie.
You know it's not deserved but you feel less bad about it. After all, most of them bully people because of their own problems and insecurities.
But Corkus is a douche, F.
Nobody deserved it. But I must admit I didn’t really care so much for him until he was killed.
Did he deserve to be sacrificed to demons and sent to hell because he was cowardly? Hmm that’s a tough one. 🤔
He was an asshole, but he was making his way through life just like everyone else and he valued the hawks enough to stay even when they were at their lowest.
None of them did.
Well he did kill and rob people. He was also an insufferable twat, if an amusing one.
Having said that, I don't think anyone deserves to go to hell.
Missed which community this was posted in first and misread so thought it was about Crocus from one piece before the image loaded.
Not really, he was just an asshole he didn’t necessarily need that fate
That son of a btch deserved to die
No but him being a sleeze at his last resort made sense
Did any of them?😂
Corkus WAS an asshole, but even he didn't deserved what happened during the Eclipse.
And, it pains me to say that, even Corkus sometimes is right: for instance, I understand why he scoled Guts about the decision to leave the Band of the Hawk.
What? Being an asshole doesn't mean you deserve death lol
He is my most favorite member of the Hawks.
Corkus wasn't even that bad, everytime he criticised Guts during the Golden Age arc he was actually right lol.
The only thing I hate about him is that he got his friends killed to steal Guts money in the beginning but if he wasn't for him Griffith would've never recruited Guts think about it.
No he didn't deserve that shit
He was dick to guts but was loyal member of the band of the hawk
*He was dick to guts*
*But was loyal member of*
*The band of the hawk*

why would he you weirdo
I will defend my man Corkus until my death, everyone sees him as an asshole but he's right, the ONLY TIME he lie is to make Guts feel better
Corkus was an ass but everything he said to Guts can be summarized by "you have everything you can hope in life and you want to throw and you don't even know why. You're an idiot". If Guts had a chance to talk to him again he'd say he was 100% right.
No. No one deserved that. Not one bit of it.
That’s why the ones that did it deserve what coming to them.
Corkus was a monumental arsehole.
BUt even then he din't deserve this kinda end...
