Anyone ever had a nightmare about God Hand & Apostles?
« on: September 17, 2004, 04:51:16 PM »
So... last night, for the 2nd time, I had a dream about God Hand... and I'm not talking about some cool Berserk dream where Guts was kicking ass... but both times I had a NIGHTMARE about God Hand and the Apostles (with no Guts around to help) and it was vividly horrifying.

The 1st time I was one of the ones being sacrificed and literally, there were people all around me being torn apart by Apostles.  The ground and the walls were also just a bunch of faces/heads, as they were in the Eclipse.  I was basically running away the entire dream, trying not to get eaten or slaughtered... and it was fu*king crazy.  I don't know how to describe it to make it sound as terrible as it was, but just try to keep in mind, these weren't animated looking drawings of monsters or people... but they were like real monsters as if you were to see them in reality.

Last night, however, the dream was a bit different.  This time, I was the one that summoned God Hand and its followers, and it was 10 times as freaky.  After the Beherit opened its face, I could hear these voices and this force wrapped around my body so I could barely breathe/move.  During this time, I started to feel immense guilt because everyone around me were my friends and family.  And then when I told all of them to run and hide, some sort of weird hellish chanting began and the wall/ground of faces appeared.

The suspense of waiting for the God Hand and the Apostles to appear was incredible.  I thought I was going to hyperventilate and die because I REALLY WAS SCARED.  I also started having flashbacks of the 1st dream I had and all those images/sounds popped into my head of people screaming and crying and I really didn't want to go through it again...

When God Hand arrived as well as the Apostles, I saw my friends and family being killed/raped... and it was the most traumatic thing ever...  Everything felt and looked so real and the sheer presence of such higher demonic beings really took force over my body.  The entire time I was shivering and I couldn't do a thing.

Anyways... I just thought I'd share and to see if anyone else had similar experiences.  I'm not a freak or anything, haha.  And I don't have any pent up rage against my friends and family.  I do tend to have pretty vivid and wild dreams, but these God Hand dreams were quite disturbing.  I am, however, an obssessed and die-hard Berserk fan... I guess maybe too much for my own good...

The dreams, though, somewhat changed my outlook on Berserk, because whenever I read Berserk, and whenever I see all those gruesome images of torture and rape, I stop and think about it for a while, and I let the visions sink in... and yeah, it's heavy stuff, and it gets to me... but I've never really tried picturing it as if I were living in the Berserk world... and if I was just a poor villager with no real power or skill with the sword.

It really is a horrific thing.

Nah some people are just wierd, i dont think it's his love for Berserk, it might be the way his mind perceives it, it could of been something he hated and still had a dream about it

Haha, well, sure, I guess you can call me weird.  But everyone has their idiosyncrasies don't they?

Anyways, it's probably not because of my "love" for Berserk, even though I do love Berserk.  It's my favorite story/manga/anime.  But like I said, I do tend to have vivid and crazy dreams at times.  And I often read the manga before I sleep... and lately I've been watching that PS2 trailer every night, drooling for it to hurry up and come out so I can play it =P.

But yeah, seeing how no one else seems to have had a dream about God Hand and all, maybe I am a freak...  :-[

I had a dream that I was eating dinner with the neo-BOTH Apostle army on a huge dining area overlooking a Metallica concert. Rakshas and I sat at the same table and were making good conversation, but I still got the feeling the guy wanted to eat me afterwards. I remember becoming friends with him when a couple of the Apostles (and I) had to sedate (or kill, I forget) Wyald because he was acting like an uncooperative jerk and he just couldn't get along with anyone.



A dream about a fiction series is nothing to be embarassed about as long as it's non-pornographic and sporadic, ...but yeah, we people are obsessive freaks :P.

LOL, haha!  That's hilarious.  That sounds like a fun dream!

The only berserk related dream I ever had was a quite simple one. I was walking around walmart at night and Ubik was following me everywhere.. like from 15 feet behind me. No climactic ending.. just Ubik following me. Then I woke up.

Guess what... My dream is that I saw the last volume with Berserker Guts and Griffith engaging in the ultimate battle..

Most of the dream i have about Berserk was the future storyline, something which have yet happen, such as reading of the few chapter (in my dream of coz) when Farnese died in the arm of Guts as monkey-like apostle burst from her belly... Guts remember it was like Gaston back in the eclipse and he became so berserk and powerful that killing apostle were as easy as killing ants to him...

Hey who knows that might happen...  :P

I havent had any Berserk nightmares before but I have had a few Berserk related ones. Usually in my dreams based on stories they are never focused on one single thing but mixed up with other stories as well as a bit of life. This particular was pretty cool, and must have happened not too long after reading volume 26. I even wrote it down late last year so I would not forget.

I was a character that wasn't exactly Guts but very similar, the Sword I was using was very similar to the Dragonslayers size and such which made the dream very fun. It was very heavy but I could still use it with a adequate amount of ease and swing it with heaps of power, I enjoyed every minute of it as well.

It was also a bit like Lord of the rings at the same time, that is the people I was cutting directly in two over and over were Orcs who would come at me and my friends in great numbers, then it would be left to me to fuck them all up.
At one stage this big sword I was using started falling apart as I was cutting into people and looked like a big chunk of tin foil rather than a sword, but that idea didnt seem to last long as soon I was killing creatures again.

The peak of the dream I suppose was when we were in a cave like area and came across a huge monster that was like a Balrog from the Fellowship and an Apostle of sorts at the same time, looked half rock and half metal. We were on the edge of a cliff when we saw it trying to follow my friends and I, they ran away where for some reason I decided to jump off what must have been 15 meters and cut down him as I fall.

The impact hurt but I was able to get up again and fight on, but I lost my weapon and was cornered by a smaller creature nearby who started to lecture me before he was going to kill me, but I managed to find a sledge hammer and smacked him into a deep hole in the cave.

For some reason when I left the cave I managed to find myself in a supermarket type place before more Orcs started coming from everywhere to attack me and what were a small amount of friends left.
After finding that I again had a working Dragonslayer in my hands I lost my mind and got this real blood lust as I realised how great it was to go on Orc killing sprees. Don't remember much after that, If I could have such interesting dreams every night I would die a happy man though.

I guess the concept was life threatening and a bit creepy but too fun to call scary. Some dreams can feel scary even though what is around you or the situation you are in doesn't seem overly threatening, where in this dream though very dangerious and seem life threatening and just not be really scary

Just thought I would share that with everyone. :)

I've had a recurring Berserk dream.

It starts off as I'm a wandering mercenary, about 13 or so.  And I come across the Band of the Hawk during the time that Guts was gone and Casca was in charge.  I talk to her for a while and she gives me the sword Guts had when he first joined the Hawks.  Saying that I would meet him some day.  Then the dream flashes to several years later.  And I meet Guts and his new gang, and decide to travel with them.  We get into a battle with hundreds of various demons,during the fight, I turn around to see Farnese killed, and run to help her and protect Casca.  But I'm too late to save Farnese.  As we finish killing off the last of them.  We bury Farnese, and Guts stands a bit away with a cold and sullen look.  And tells us all to move on.  Again, it flashes to a couple weeks later we come across the new Hawks.  And it always stops right there.

Well, I never had a normal dream about Berserk at all, but here's my own two cents. Be warned, it's drug-induced.

I was tripping on mushrooms in my room, trying to relax and enjoy the time, by putting on some mp3s. Of course, with my luck, three songs from Berserk came on, and I started seeing my best friend (who reminds me of Griffith) melting into a pond, and then she had on Griffith's hawk helmet, and all I could see were her eyes, and she kept fading in and out of Griffith's. This was all in my mind, I wasn't looking at her and seeing it change. If you've ever tripped on mushrooms before you'll understand where I'm coming from.

Oh, and drugs are bad so don't do them. :x That was my last drug experience, and it made me decide not to do them anymore, it was way too realistic for me to cope with. I ended up a crying mess later.

My dream finally continued the other night.  Here's how the rest goes.

Guts runs into the camp cutting through whoever is in his way, citizen and soldier alike.  Isidro follows close behind, and Serpico takes Casca away.  He finds Griffith sitting in the middle of the camp.  Him and Guts get into a very brief battle and Griffith is knocked away.  A flash passes down his body and he is Femto again.  Guts changes into the beast and they get into a very vicious battle.  Everyone just stops, and watches.  Femto is cut down, and as he is, the Beherit flies out of Guts' pouch and lands right in front of Femto.  He quickly grabs it and calls the rest of the God Hand.  He pulls himself together and joins his bretheren.  There's a scene of Skully outside the eclipse getiing out his Beherit sword.  And he run into the eclipse.  He does the same thing as in the first eclipse and crashes through the black sun.  Void puts up his little vortex thing, but just before his sword hits it, his sword enters its own vortex thing and he strikes down Void.  As Void falls, all the apostles transform and begin attacking Guts and Skully.  Of course, They kick some apostle ass.  And once again, it stops there.

I actually had one when I was like 13 after watching it the first time. I remember I finished watching it at like 2AM and went to sleep and just had a nightmare that I was in the eclipse and was just running like hell.

But when it comes to anime/manga related dreams, they're mostly Gundam related  :P

I DO think it was his love for berserk(otherwise he wouldn't have read that part so emotional/devoted, on the other side we both may be right. Maybe he hates to read/see the part of the eclipse so much it gets a personal form in his nightmares...

or something..

Well we all know it's a general fact your sub-consciousness comes alive in your dreams and therefore exists from many things you have actually done that day (intense reading of the eclipse and really getting into it)...

I know trhat eating aome foods can cause poor sleep/bad dreams. Maybe you should lay off the cheese before bed. I mean, just because beichii's (beilits) love cheese doesn't make it a good late night snack...

Woh thanks for the topic bump! No seriously, I was about to make a topic exactly like this and you saved me the trouble of having to search for an already made one :SK:

Well, I had a Berserk dream a few nights ago.. And it was possibly one of the most frightening and yet interesting dreams I had ever had. My dreams are strange, because they are usually a stream of a bunch of different dreams, one after another (almost like TV shows. one dream goes on for a while then suddenly im in a different dream). I was dreaming about some strange thing first, and then the Berserk dream began..

I was in the town in Midland that Guts is in in volumes 1-3 (Koka castle? not sure..). Anyways, everyone was just running like mad, screaming shouting etc. The sky was dark and it was foggy and gloomy, and rather scary to be honest. I just sort of ran with everyone else, unsure of what we were running from but I was just running. Eventually I ran down this alleyway hopeing to just get away, but the alley was a dead end. I turned around and there was some sort of creature there infront of me (looked like a daka). Call me a wimp or whatever, but that was honestly one of the scarriest things in my life. I dropped to the ground and I suddenly heard a twanging noise. I opened my eyes a little and saw the creature laying on the ground with bolts in its head. I looked up to see a tall man with a crossbow strapped to his arm. His other hand just sort of grabbed his sword handle on his back but he didn't draw it. Now that I think about the dream I know it was Guts, but in the dream I didn't know who this person was..

Anywho, not very interesting compared to some of you guy's dreams, but honestly it was quite frightening but very neat when I think back on it.

Until just recently i haven't had a berserk dream but then after one weekend where i avoided ALL contact with everyone and did absolutely nothing but watch berserk, read berserk and listen to berserk all at the same time. I had my computer playing berserk Cd's and then i had it going on the TV and then i was reading it and that night.....the most messed up dream ever.

  It all started around the great eclipse. I thought i was a member of the hawks but then void sent out the mark, i was the only one i saw who didn't get branded. Then i looked at my hands and i was looking like Zodd in apostle form. then i started spinning in confusion and fell down a face into a big puddle of blood, and i screamed out in horror trying to figure out what was going on. Then i see all the apostles gathered there around me. Like I'm talking about the main characters like rakshas, ganishka, grunbeld, etc. and then i found a sword magically appear in my hand and it was Zodd's sword, the one he threw to guts at the battle with boscogne. And i was fighting all of the apostles on my own. I am getting torn to shreds and then Grunbeld comes over and smashes his hammer right in my face. Then i woke up sweating. It was weird. It seemed so long and mind blowing in my dream trying to handle all of it. But i will say this, for a dream like that and even though it freaked me out, it was still pretty cool.

Most of my Berserk dreams have involved a secluded pool fed by a waterfall, most of the female cast, skinny-dipping.  :isidro:

Is fun.  :guts:
