This is the talk page for the article "Skull Knight".
I have a theory about the nature of Rakshas and the Skull Knight and Guts. We will find out if it's true sooner or later.
I remember reading a statement by the Skull Knight that kind of went to the tune of "he who fights fate" when describing Guts. As I heard this and thought of the Skull Knight's suggested correlation to Void, I began to wonder... what if each of the God Hand's have a kind of anti-thesis character?
Void opposes Skull Knight.
Femto opposes Guts.
Rakshas... not sure yet. Most of the God Hand are not openly developed at this point.
If I'm correct, in that each God Hand results in some kind of "opposing shadow". If Rakshas is one, there will be two more. If not, there could still be three, one for Slan, Ubik and Conrad.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) 17:38, August 27, 2012.

We will find out.
It'll probably be a while before we find out though, because Miura is taking his time on the manga. And for its long run, it doesn't seem like it'll be finished any time soon. TriNiSette (talk) 18:06, August 27, 2012 (UTC)
Why doesn't this article mention King Gaiseric? As I understand, that is the Skullnight's former identity. When Princess Charlotte explains the significance of the Tower of Rebirth she tells the story of King Gaiseric, a ruler who united all nations of the continent and fought wearing a mask of a human skull. She also stated that due to the corruption of power King Gaiseric and the entire nation met a halting disaster. 18.104.22.168 07:21, October 17, 2013 (UTC)
It is extremely inherently implied by the story writing that King Gaiseric and Skull Knight are the same person. It's not like he can be categorized as having a secret identity that the protagonist must discover, or were there are multiple possible persons for the secret identity. The only one alluded to as being the skull knight is King Gaiseric. I think it is safe to say that King Gaiseric is the skull knight. OnePieceNation (talk) 16:55, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
okay am just reading it for the first time so bear with me in chapter 133 of the manga the manga the skull knight appears to eat one of the behelit.... could this somehow be the source of his (what seems to be) immortal nature?--22.214.171.124 02:39, October 25, 2013 (UTC)
