If you can be said to be a true friend to this man, then take heed. For when this man's ambition collapses, Death will pay you a visit. A death you can never escape!
~ Nosferatu Zodd


Nosferatu Zodd is a legendary swordmaster, an Apostle, and a rival of Skull Knight who wanders the land in search of worthy foes. Having first encountered Guts and Griffith after having warded a stronghold against the Band of the Hawk, Zodd has since held the two in high esteem, as they proved to be warriors of great bravery and strength. Since then, he has sometimes engaged Guts in battle a number of times, and on occasion even provided him assistance.

    • Kratos has much more physical strength besides very powerful weapons
    • This is actually a really awesome fight, at least in concept. I think Kratos may be able to beat him, but with really high diff, due to bet...
