Occupation

Mercenary

Bazuso (バズーソ Bazūso?) the "Grey Knight" is a widely known and feared mercenary, being one of the earliest adversaries faced by a young Guts, and is the reason that Griffith took notice in the swordsman.

Appearance

Bazuso is exaggerated in stature, and stands much taller than other men. Although he is killed before he can be seen without his armor, it can be inferred that his physique is very muscular due to the excessive size of his weapon, as well as the incredible size and weight of his armor.

Personality

Bazuso is a violent man, completely devoid of pity and without remorse. He is arrogant and views himself as superior to his foes, looking down on others as weak. He bears an insatiable blood lust and possesses incredible physical strength, which allows him to easily slay any that challenge him. However, after Guts emerges as the victor of their duel, he begs for mercy.

Abilities and Skills

He is powerful enough to be well known and easily recognizable to other mercenaries. It is said that he once successfully took on over thirty men in combat, earning him the moniker of "Thirty-Man Slayer", and that he defeated a bear by himself, both of which are testaments to his incredible physical strength.

Equipment

Bazuso wields a large battleaxe during his fight against Guts. Due to his fearsome reputation, one can assume that he is very skilled in wielding it. Furthermore, the size of the battleaxe compliments Bazuso's height, giving him a wide reach in combat.

History

Golden Age Arc

Kill

Bazuso mortally wounded

Placed in charge of a fortress under siege by a band of mercenaries, Bazuso leaves the group frozen in fear on sight, intimidated by the immense reputation of the battleaxe wielding man. Guts, a young independent mercenary, puts himself forward to remedy the problem; he tells his employer that he will kill Bazuso in exchange for seven pieces of gold. Though Bazuso intends to humor Guts in accepting his duel, expecting to kill the young swordsman with little effort, the ensuing battle is fought on equal terms. After an exchange of blows, Guts is fortunate enough to be able to damage Bazuso's battleaxe and deliver a powerful slash to his waist, forcing the colossal man to his knees. In his final moments, Bazuso pleads for his life; Guts quickly drives his sword down into the neutralized man's head, splitting it half-way, one of Bazuso's eyes dislodged from the impact. It is Guts' triumph over Bazuso that earns him the attention of the Band of the Hawk, and more specifically, Griffith.

Trivia

  • The appearance of his helmet, weapon, and armor differs between the manga, 1997 anime, and film trilogy.
  • The video game series Dark Souls' director Hidetaka Miyazaki attributes the inspiration of the character "Siegmeyer of Catarina" to Bazuso.
