i was talking to my friend about berserk and he told me his daring theory about who he thought the skull knight could be. he said that the skull knight could be a future gatts. his thinking was inspired by archer from fate/stay night cuz archer was the future shiro. my buddy gave a couple of convincing evidences that swayed my opinion. first we know that the skull knight used the berserker armor just like gutts is using it. the skull knight called flora, schrieke's sensei an old friend. well flora helped gutts and company out in the past so it would make sense that she would be the skull knight's friend if he was gutts. we also know that the skull knight wants to kill the godhand becuz he has a score to settle with them. well gutts also has a score to settle with them cuz they took away his comrades and femto raped caska. the most compelling evidence i think is the skull knight's rivalry with zodd the immortal. i mean we know zodd views the skull knight as a strong opponent and if you remember to the first time zodd and gutts met he called gatts the strongest opponent he had faced in a while. so guys tell me what you think about it.
They all sound like coincidences to me.
The skull knight being a future gatts just doesn't seem right.
also the armor changes from a skull, when skull night wore it, to jackal when Gattsu wore it... that change alone should disprove the theory
well... no one can really tell but to me looks more fierce or wild than a dog... and I related it to a jackal.
Plus gatts has something the skull knight doesn't. Caska, really one of the only things keeping him sane right now. I think she is going to play a huge part in the story, weither gatts ends up like the skull knight or something different. Plus you also have to remember the egg that keeps following gatts around.
remember when the skull knight was telling gatts about taking caska to the elf island he said that there's a possibility that it might not work and also gatts should think of whether getting caska back to normal might be what she wants and what's right for her. to me that sounds like the words of someone with such an experience. so maybe that does prove he could be gatts future self. @whitebeard it hasn't been pointed out in the series that the skull knight is the founding ruler of midland it has only been rumored. it was just a myth.
Im sure someone as tactical as Kentaro Miura puts rumors in one of the most important moments of the entire series for absolutely no reason. Im sure.
But in all seriousness, this theory fails. The skull night said the witch lady (from the forest) was relatively his Caska. Gatts hasn't had much of a relationship with the witch lady, so we can assume the skull night and Gatts are two different persons.
This is my last post here, the argument just seems pointless.
