Maybe the most realistical strong guy up to when he gets that Armor, even though it's exaggerated many times.
Nah, Guts is one of strongest guys around but just try to compare him with Thorkell The Tall (aka Thorkell The Horse Killer). I honestly think that in this fight Thorkell would won. When Guts wouldn't had Berserkers armor to make the fight fair. (Either way, I don't like that piece of armor.)
Gattsu should be superior in swordsmanship to Thorkell, easily ^^
But probably inferior to him in pure strength, yes.
I would like to see a fight between Guts and Ken (from Fist of the North star/Hokuto no Ken).
Master Roshi, Krillin, Tien, Yamcha (Dragon Ball Z)
These guys are 100% human. Well, Tien has 3 eyes, so maybe he isn't 100% human...
Krillin, Yamcha & Tien could destroy Guts with their attacks & speed & flight capabilities.
Characters from "History's Strongest Disciple Kenishi" could probably take on Gutts.
The mangas I mentioned are shounen. Gutts is a seinen character. Could he be the strongest in all of seinen manga? Gutts has the potential to become the strongest in all of manga, but with the pace that the mangaka is going by, it is HIGHLY unlikely.
By the time Berserk ends, Gutts won't be human. He'll be a god. Even then, I highly doubt he'll be considered the strongest character in all of manga.
Well should I say human without powers aside from strength..
A good matchup I always think of when people mention Gutts vs other manga characters is Kenshin. I know you're thinking, Kenshin Himura!? That silly little red haired guy. But truth be told though you have to remember that he can move faster then the speed of sight, so fast even that he can hit five (or was it nine?) spots on a human at the exact moment. He also can swing so fast and hard he can create a vacuum with his sword. His biggest disadvantage is his reverse blade.
I give it to Kenshin against Gutts but with the Berserk armor, Gutts could probably take him.
Unicron vs Guts, gogogo
Guts is not that much broken as other manga/anime characters over the years, his world may fit as having broken creatures like the God Hand, but since he could not beat them, he himself is not that strong, the God Hand are far more hax and stronger than he is. He does bend certain rules of what a realistic fighter holding a sword would do, but he is not that powerful.
Even with the Berserk armor, but sadly that is not Guts doing all the work here, he is mostly human and the armor gives him more of that super power. He was strong before, but the battles took way longer then with the armor.
Indeed, that is why he must do everything to surpass even them thus becoming the most powerful one. But in Berserk these things take time, not just with the breaks but generally the story moves slower before these people can be defeated, that is the beauty of it. Guts will use the Berserk armor or other type of magic to become really strong, however his human abilities have been in the shadow for a long time.
hanma yujiro begs to differ
The question is not about strenght itself although swinging the dragon slayer which probably weighs way above 100lbs at such speed & velocity AND with a GRIP really hindered(fake hand) is an incredible feat of strenght
The (unrealistic) thing is that,swinging this big sword so repetitively would demolish elbow & wrist joints of a normal human
Guts as a human is a massive,massive dude,like 190cm tall & a bodyweight @ +/- 90kg(200lbs) with a strenght and stamina like no others.
