is this out of 10? I wouldn't say Casca has NO charisma either.Guts: 3
Casca: 0, what with her being a vegetable at the moment.
Which characters? All of them? Does it even matter? Is this question even important? What made you ask this?While Griffith can pretty much be called the poster boy of charisma, just how much charisma would you say the other characters have?
Don't bother trying to use a scale for this, giving them a number won't work for something like this. This is for all the characters in general, it's due to the fact that the issue of charisma has been brought up more then once in berserk. With this in mind, I like to know what you can about the charisma for each of the characters, both major and minor.Oberi said:Which characters? All of them? Does it even matter?

Exactly. Griffith has this kind of natural charisma that he uses to his advantage, it's cheap and cocky. But Guts the lone wolf didn't want any followers in the beginning. The people that follow him believe in him whole heartedly and they are a much closer group than Griffith's massive army of demons (at least let's hope so). And you know Guts would never sacrifice his friends to get what he wants...Yeah he's charismatic alright, and unlike Griffith he never even tried.
Yea thats right. People wanted to follow him because of his natural charisma and his amazing skill when he was human. Now with Griffith reborn people just swear loyalty to him in overpowering emotional outbursts. Nice little skill.Well, as far as the current Griffith goes, I'd say his charisma is unnatural
It's cheap because he uses people. Theres no real substance behind his shiny act. People are being mislead, yet they are still attracted to him, you know what mean. Whereas Guts is the last person to want to be the center of attention. It's so beneath him, his image. He has such strong convictions and substance which is what give him charismaWhy is that cheap? I am not sure I am following.
It's all manipulative, an act. He spots a weakness and plays upon it, and quite nicely at that. Everyone is just going along with his game and if you're that good of course you going to be cocky; the self assurance only adds to his power and made everyone believe in him even more. thats not really charisma just deception.Cruella said:Why is that cheap?

I wouldn't say that. It's kind of misrepresenting the whole situation.Cruella said:It comes from "God" - well, as close as you get to god in Berserk, as far as we know anyway.
I'm not sure whether you're playing dumb or not, but I think it's pretty clear that in this case "cheap" was meant to be an informal expression for "dishonorable", "deceptive", "inglorious" or even "unfair".Cruella said:How do you get more "expensive" charisma? It's not a purse.
Oberi will have to confirm or deny, but I think he meant it more as the way he uses his charisma to his advantage. If you decompose his original sentence, he's just saying that the way Griffith uses his talent is cheap and cocky.Cruella said:I just don't think that this word fits at all. But I guess it comes down to semantics, so, not important really. If the sentiment was that it's unfair/unfortunate that Griffith has charisma, rather than prescribing certain "quality" to charisma, than with that I can agree.
Yea there's no need to get technical, you know what I mean I'm sure.Oberi will have to confirm or deny, but I think he meant it more as the way he uses his charisma to his advantage. If you decompose his original sentence, he's just saying that the way Griffith uses his talent is cheap and cocky.
