Mudo said:It's just speculation, but maybe the God Hand was summoned and the kid controlled the body during this time.
Walter said:Very likely, yes.
Well, OK... but it's certainly not a stretch of the imagination to make that connection. If they share the same body, and the same power, it would make sense that they appear the same, when viewed through astral vision.Aazealh said:I wouldn't say it's "very likely".

Panicfactorx said:I wonder (since the moon was out) if the child's nature is like that of the moon.
Panicfactorx said:I believe Schierke said her attribute was water, or maybe I misunderstood.
Panicfactorx said:As to the child stopping Guts: If it is indeed Griffith and Griffith is in some sort of control, maybe he stopped Guts from killing everyone because he knew they had a greater purpose to serve.
Aazealh said:I'm not sure who you're talking about here, but yeah you misunderstood.
Panicfactorx said:As for the moon: I'm wondering if the child is a spirit of the moon. Salamanders represent fire, undines water, sylphs wind... maybe the boy is the spiritual representation of the moon.
BiQ-- said:What happened on the beach was simply the fact that depths of sea (connecting to the astral world) and full moon (which seems to strengthen all kinds of astral things in Berserk world) allowed him to manifest to meet his parents... and that's it.
BiQ-- said:I don't see why there needs to be any more elaborate reason for his appearance at the beach but child's yearning for his parents and circumstances that allowed it to happen.
BiQ-- said:Griffith's reactions to Casca and Guts are "just" lingering effects
BiQ-- said:What really intrigues me is, if these theories are in any way close to being true, since Moonlight Boy is an astral being, does the merging of worlds mean that he could now be permanently on the same world as his parents? (and everyone else for that matter)
Oburi said:So then the Griffith from the Golden Age is truly dead....
jaken said:I'm not so sure when I think about the Count, Rosine, Ganishka, ... They all recovered their old self near the end, which seems to indicate that it survived in some way. I guess this has already been discussed in a more appropriate thread...
Aazealh said:The body Femto was incarnated in looks exactly like the man called Griffith did. However, this doesn't mean that the person known as Griffith up to the Eclipse is suddenly back like nothing happened. Griffith became Femto in volume 13. He was irremediably changed. The one we now refer to as Griffith is merely Femto wearing a Griffith flesh-suit. It's important that people understand this.
We don't get as many glimpses into Guts' internal thoughts as we once did, when he was flying solo. But in volume 28, he was reminded of the demon child just after the group encounters the Moonlight Boy. So, that's a pretty big first step.spineylamb said:Do you think Guts suspects anything? It seems like he's got other things on his mind to deal with first, but you could tell the Moonlight Child had more of his attention in 317. I wonder if in the back of his mind, he's tried connecting some dots.
"The power of the moon" will fade with morning, yes. What that means for the boy is uncertain, just like everything else about him is uncertain...Jaze1618 said:What if the boy fails to clear out before morning? Will the power of the moon fade? We shall see.
