None of them deserved it


Nothingreallyend

No none of the band of the hawk deserved the eclipse.


Puzzleheaded-Row187

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.


Nothingreallyend

Griffith you know because he sacrificed


johannh12

\*god has entered the chat\*


TheOtherCrow

He died doing what he loved. I bet he was happy.


Glass-Airline3491

He was a dick. But I still like him, so he didn’t deserve it.


Nystagohod

No one deserved the Eclipse, not even Corkus.


HBRex

No. But I'm less saddened by what happened to him than the entire rest of the band of the Hawk


EyyMrJ

Judeau! 😭


Zelmehuu_76

PP 😭


Syan66

CrouchingTortoise

You cry a lot when you’re alone…don’t ya, Casca?


Noxaelum

Man ninjas be cutting onions in here


LordLude26

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!


a-very-angry-crow

Main man still went out like a fucking hero though


aquillismorehipster

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.


HBRex

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.


ReallyUneducated

pretty sure he knew it wasn’t real; but he knew he was going to die anyway; so he just gave up


Independent-Bench626

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.


manguito86

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


HBRex

No of course not. I'm just less sad about what happened to him than everyone else.


Johnny_Cage97

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.


nbzoronb

None of them deserved it 😭


bringuswingus

Not at all.


EdwinGo7

No. Despite his harshness, he was the only one with balls to call everyone out on their shit


Timemaster4732

Honestly, he’s my favourite hawk member just because of that.


Stark_Athlon

I don't think anyone involved in the eclipse deserved any of what happened to them.


Superb-Ad-6669

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


Iber0

I mean, Casca also tried to kill Guts in the beginning.


worldsenvy

Have* have**


MankindReunited

No one at the eclipse deserved what happened there


Accomplished-Lime-51

I don’t think being an ass earns you the death penalty. With that logic we’d have way less issues with overpopulation…


72Challupas

Corkus was a dick head, but almost nobody deserves what happened to the Band of the Hawk


Salfredo

Corpus was a dick, but noone deserves that...except Wyald.


vendaaiccultist

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.


Savant_2

He was a jackass, but no.


Timcat999

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.


Savant_2

I'd argue that the dude was so broken by what he just witnessed, he didn't give it much thought.


Lystackro

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.


Yokhen

This is the answer.


Pepsiman1031

Which was probably the more logical decision


aquillismorehipster

Yeah it felt like a willful gesture of ignorance of last resort


No-Lawfulness-5544

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


Independent-Bench626

We all think we would be the guts of the situation... But no. We are a bunch of Corkuses.


im0497

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.


Yokhen

Tool


Aspiring_Mutant

Imagine not having a sword shed, smh


savageblueskye

An excellent band


vixocharcha

truth is that most of us would react like Corkus and not like Guts


MeshuggahObzen

This is the correct answer.


[deleted]

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.


Timcat999

Id like to believe he at least got some


[deleted]

I mean she had transformed as soon as he put his head in her chest but sure lets be optimistic lol.


Nordelnob

I mean, he wasn't going to make it either way. Might as well rest your face in some tata's.


ClydeTheSupreme

I took it as he decided itd be better to enjoy his last moments than resist, he knew it was fake imo.


Timcat999

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.


draginbleapiece

Well he was slowly going insane there


LeLBigB0ss2

Your stupidity is concerning.


Timcat999

I already know


ElMondoH

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...)


rogthnor

No


prison_mike3

No. He was a total dick, but definitely didn't deserve that.


IVsaur15

No…none of them deserved it


NuclearWabbitz

Not in the slightest, I still want to beat him til his legs don’t work, but he didn’t deserve what he got.


ExistentialOcto

No. He was a dick but his insecurity was understandable given his environment. No one deserves a death like he got!


happylife42

Where is this corkus hate coming from? Tf


AmericanMule

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


tarenaccount

He was a dick, but he never left his friends side. Not even when griffith was captured and some of the hawks ran away


MurvK

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.


a_little_violet

Uh, no?


TheRecusant

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.


williamdavisspears

None of them deserved it


Ninzerox

No one deserves something as gruesome as that.


IronJarl83

Griffith does


Andre616

no one deserved what Griffith did.


Obversaria

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.


BamBamNYC

No one did. They were all good loyal men till the end. Corkus was only human with all his imperfections


UlyssesCourier

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.


ProfessorLovely

No one deserved what they had to go through…


kfkfofkfofkf

Tbh corkus was my favorite character in berserk before he died


Gatsuxkyasuka19

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.


Indigochairudo

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


BamaViiking

Nobody deserves the Eclipse lol


Odd_Radio9225

I didn't like him, but no.


HybridLighting

No


Odd-Visual544

NO!


SuperFly981

He may be a jerk of all things, but he doesn't deserve a horrible death.


Heirof_Numenor

No man; indeed, he was a dick, but he was our dick.


No-Lawfulness-5544

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.


Ill-Branch7621

He didn't deserve it just like most of the band. I mean their ALL killers but yeah


Yellow_Emperor

None of them did!


BrentBQ

He didnt deserve it but the way how he went out was probably the best outcome than the rest of the band.


kozykhal

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.


Meme_to_the_Extreme

I remember being especially disturbed by Corkus' death, not really sure why tho


The_valhalla_gaming

I think part of the point of Corkus was to shows that NO ONE deserves the eclipse.


Vord_Loldemort_7

Hell no he was just kind of an asshole, he didn’t deserve anything that happened during the eclipse


Shoddie1989

No


slackboy72

Did anyone deserve it?


ZilyanaBlade

i dont think any of em deserved it but his death was the most based. at least he died in between some tiddies


alowe10000000

Corkus might’ve been asshole, but not even he deserved something that horrendous done to him.


Blood_Thrash

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.


Durum_G

Not a question of deserve, it’s just the causality my friends


AdamOfIzalith

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.


ebk_scorsese

“Deserve has nothing to do with it.” -William Munny


DaringDo95

Nobody deserved that.


Appropriate-Gur-1345

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


Just_A_HappyCelery

I miss Pippin😞


skilled_cosmicist

No 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.


BioLizard18

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.


lookingnottouching69

About as much as Casca did


ggg375

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


Bevi4

Osama Bin Laden wouldn’t deserve an Eclipse man


JoeDante84

Yes


joshderfer654

Yes


Nathan_barrels

Yes. He always treated Guts like shit for absolutely no reason and wanted to try and kill him multiple times. Fuck Corkus


Yokhen

He was honest though. Takes a lot of balls to be upfront.


BamaViiking

Especially upfront to someone like Guts lol that really takes balls


Nathan_barrels

That's different than being a straight dick head


Yokhen

Not really. It's usually part of the same coin.


Nathan_barrels

Not really. He's just an asshole


Pepsiman1031

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.


Nathan_barrels

Yeah and then when guts fought Griffith he said watch your back on the battlefield


Pepsiman1031

Yeah but corkus is always all talk and I feel like he just didn't want to say he would miss him.


ExamTrick

That was toxic lol XD


Nathan_barrels

Just saying 😂 I'd sacrifice corkus ez


Justsomeguy2OO

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


Zobro

...yes


M7mdkuri

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


timoutdoors

yes.


atlaswarped

Yes.


BasedDptReprsentativ

Yes, he was a vermin


visualaids69

Yes, he was always annoying from start to finish


Meat_Hats_Rule

Yea lmao


2DamnBig

Yes, he deserved to die with his face in tits.


MaesteoBat

Yes he did. Was a cunt every damn time he was on page


general_sheevous

Preach. Hated that little bastard


MaesteoBat

Amen


Impossible-Bother145

Yes fuck his annoying ass


awesomebman123

Holy shit you got me😂


chicken_nugget779

corkus is a dick but i kinda like his character, hes well written


swinefeever

corkus was a big asshole but not at the point to deserve something like the eclipse


TheDarkMuz

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...


LusterBlaze

no


Gammachan

No. Not even Corkus deserved that.


Its_Nuk_Nuk

No but wow he was such a tool


Icy_Penalty5899

No


Private_HughMan

no


tacodrop1980

I don’t think any of them deserved it. But he was a dick so…..


Darnocsonif

No. None of them did


RisingReform

No but I never liked the guy


KingBoo919

I’d have to say he had it coming. Stay humble..


YakSquad

None of them deserved it


DoraMuda

No. He was an asshole, but he was a Hawk all the same. None of them deserved to get slaughtered in such a way.


iwipiksi

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.


ExodusNarrator

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.


Sssono

Nobody deserved it. But I must admit I didn’t really care so much for him until he was killed.


Gamger4

Did he deserve to be sacrificed to demons and sent to hell because he was cowardly? Hmm that’s a tough one. 🤔


TZMAN18

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.


YashDalal

None of them did.


Splendidbloke

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.


Pingu_J0estar

No


jojory42

ThatGuy371

Not really, he was just an asshole he didn’t necessarily need that fate


Zaraki_D_Kenpachi

That son of a btch deserved to die


Johnseanson

Yes. Next question.


niyokran

No but him being a sleeze at his last resort made sense


kingkloppynwa

Did any of them?😂


Efficient-Ad2983

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.


TonicSwine97

Absolutely


_ilvah_

What? Being an asshole doesn't mean you deserve death lol


Johnny_Cage97

He is my most favorite member of the Hawks.


Kevin_Pentagram

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


Chimera-98

He was dick to guts but was loyal member of the band of the hawk

lordofthekebabs

why would he you weirdo


Omeven

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


vVRichardVv

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.


AegisGram

No. No one deserved that. Not one bit of it. That’s why the ones that did it deserve what coming to them.


Zenebatos1

Corkus was a monumental arsehole. BUt even then he din't deserve this kinda end...
