Characters of Berserk which have minor roles and as a result do not warrant their own articles are listed here.
Charlotte's Mother Edit
Charlotte's mother is the late Queen of Midland. She is the first wife of the King of Midland and mother of his only heir, Charlotte. When she dies an early death, the king takes a second queen. However, he never holds the same affection for his new wife as he did Charlotte's mother, who is said to have been the only woman he ever truly loved.
A servant of the King of Midland, the jailer of the Tower of Rebirth is instructed to do whatever he wishes to Griffith as punishment for his bedding of Princess Charlotte, only excepting that which would cause the death of the former mercenary leader. Thus, Griffith is subjected to a myriad of torture methods by the jailer, ranging from elinguation and tendon laceration to flaying and scalding. A deformed man with a severe sigmatism and stutter, the torturer gleefully reminisces about his time with his "pretty" captive, having taken his tongue as a lucky charm. When Guts learns of the jailer's work while rescuing Griffith, the man admits to his actions under the impression that the door to Griffith's cell will protect him from retribution. However, Guts breaks through the door, piercing the torturer's chest and cutting his tongue out before sending him downward towards the ruins of Gaiseric's lost city, killing him.
Lustful Nobleman Edit
The lustful nobleman is a Midland noble who buys a twelve-year-old Casca from her parents for use as a castle maid. En route to his castle, the noble reveals his lustful intentions, chasing Casca from their carriage and pinning her down in an attempt of rape. Just as she begins submitting to her attacker, Griffith appears on horseback and slices off the noble's ear, subsequently extending his sword to Casca. As the nobleman lunges for her neck, Casca takes up the sword and places it inline with her attacker's chest, piercing through and killing him.
Dante, Errol, and Riguel Edit
Due to Guts' defeat of Bazuso, it is assumed the swordsman is carrying a large sum of gold as reward, which Corkus, Dante, Errol, and Riguel seek to take. Corkus commands Dante and Errol to take care of Guts. When both of them are easily cut down, he commands Riguel to do the same. Having witnessed Guts' strength, however, Riguel declines Corkus' command.
Dillos is a Falcon who, after being ravaged in a failed infiltration of a Tudor-held sanctum, trudges out on the verge of death to warn his comrades about Nosferatu Zodd before succumbing to his injuries.
Kim is a Falcon who remains behind with Rickert and others while another division of the band rescues Griffith. He is later ensnared by the Slug Baron, warning Rickert of an apostle raid on the band's encampment before being devoured.
Nichole is a Falcon whose primary motivation for joining the band is impressing a woman who refused him for being a common soldier. He seeks promotion to lead a hundred men, without a second thought for the dangers of pursuing his lofty goal.
After Guts loses to Griffith and becomes a member of the Band of the Falcon, Corkus and six of his underlings plot to kill Guts in his sleep as revenge for Dante. Corkus orders Sam to sneak inside Guts' tent and kill him. However, they are spotted by Casca, who sternly warns them off.
Old Fortune Teller Edit
During the Eclipse, Ubik takes Griffith to the deepest recesses of his conscious self, where a phantasm bearing an elderly woman's image reminds him of his dream and influences him into sacrificing his comrades.
Valancia, also known as the "King of Massacre", is a Tudor-born veteran who loses against Silat in a tournament held to rally soldiers for a large scale robber hunt. He is said to have slain one hundred and thirty Midland soldiers during the Hundred-Year War.
Koka Thugs Edit
Under the command of the Snake Lord, the thugs of Koka attack Koka a number of times before the town mayor finally makes a deal with them: In exchange for tribute, the thugs agree to cease their raids on the town.
They remain in the town as rogues, however, doing as they please without any regard for town standards. As a group of several thugs are amusing themselves by toying with a captured Puck in a tavern, Guts enters and slaughters most of them, leaving but one alive to deliver a message to the Snake Lord: "The Black Swordsman has come."
Other thugs later ride alongside the Snake Lord, helping their leader lay waste to Koka and the townspeople.
Abbot of the Tower Edit
The abbot of the tower is an elderly, zucchetto-wearing abbot of the Holy See, who serves and oversees religious duties in the Tower of Conviction. He calls Farnese to his office to relay to her the papal edict sent through the influence of her father requesting her transferal away from the tower effective immediately out of concern for her well-being.
Heretic High Priest Edit
The heretic high priest is an elderly pagan who serves under the Great Goat within the cult of the Goddess of Flame, and is the only member to be clothed while conducting their ritual. When the cult learns of the "black witch" in Albion, the high priest intends to marry Casca to the Great Goat, having Nina serve as a celebratory sacrifice for supposedly keeping Casca to herself. However, pandemonium breaks out when the Holy Iron Chain Knights reach the pagans' location as some of them are possessed by the flesh-eating spirits of those they killed for food. The high priest attempts to escape with the Great Goat, only to be killed by his master when the Egg of the Perfect World sires the Great Goat into an pseudo-apostle.
Kushan Scouts Edit
The Kushan Scouts are specially trained reconnaissance assassins that are dispatched by the Kushan Army. They corner Isidro after quickly slaughtering a group of bandits. However, Guts quickly saves Isidro by cutting the scouts to ribbons with his newly-reforged Dragon Slayer.
Serpico's Mother Edit
As a young woman, Serpico's mother works as a maid in the Vandimion family mansion, and has an affair with Federico III. Federico eventually discards her, but she later births his illegitimate son: Serpico. Living in poverty thereafter, she never accepts the end of their affair, and develops a severe illness which renders her bedridden, forcing Serpico to become her caregiver. When Serpico gains employment in the Vandimion mansion as a servant and Farnese's companion, she believes this will lead to his recognition by Federico.
As her body and mind become further ravaged by illness, Serpico's mother no longer recognizes her son and sees him only as her "husband" Federico; unable to take care of her, Serpico places her in a sanitarium. Several years later, she is labeled a heretic due to her senility. At the site of her execution, Serpico inadvertently calls her "mother", which casts suspicion upon him. Farnese orders him to set her stake alight, and he reluctantly does so to avoid association with a supposed sinner.
- In episode 20 of the 1997 Berserk anime, rather than face off against Silat initially, Valancia faces Guts in a friendly competition to determine which of the two will fight Silat. Ultimately, Guts triumphs over Valancia, who yields, kneeling in defeat.
