    I don't know why, but I've had a feeling about him.

    The way he fights Gutts/SK as without hatred makes it seem more like his fights are more akin to "friendly competition".

    I think he only serves Griffith cos he was made for that purpose, and not a true follower of him, like other of the Neo-hawks are like Locus for example.

    There is a contrast in the way Zodd views Griffith with the way Locus views him.

    I still think Zodd has quite alot of "free thought" and not brainwashed in the Griffith hype.

    Now I'm not say he's gonna turn around and slay Griffith, but I just see him doing something to aid Gutts. Then die to SK, in a mutual battle between 2 rivals. I can almost see him dying and saying in a friendly way "GG".

    Nah, I don't see him switching sides. He found his superior in Griffith and plans to stay loyal to him until the end.

    What Thugnificent said, however, it would be awesome if he did.

    I dont see him doing anything to oppose Griffith directly, but I can see him subtly helping Gutts.

    Yea that's what I meant.

    But those saying he's loyal to Griffith...seriously I think Zodd is intelligent/self -aware enough to realize the truth...it's almost like he's loyal because of threat rather than because he believes.

    He's loyal because he found someone "stronger" (I still don't believe this) than him, thus, he obeys Griffith.

    I also think he could help gutts out, cause in the end, zodd just wants to have someone strong to fight with rather than care for griffith's ambitions. And the little prophecy sonia told him could affect him in some way, despite that it was most likely just ment for the fight with ganishka.

    Zodd will aid Gutts, if only to have a rematch.

    I don't think so. Zodd has always consistently carried out the interests of the God Hand. He only helped Griffith and Guts out before the Eclipse because he wanted things to go smoothly. Thats why he killed Wyald before he tore Griffith apart when he was crippled. What indications has he given of switching sides?

    when zodd and gutts teamed up in the sea port arc gutts asked if griffith was around

    zodd said before that he had no reason to fight gutts unless he's targeting griffith, cause if he does than zodd is going to fight him without mercy until there is nothing left of him.

    zodd won't change sides. he's griffith right hand and shield/sword as gutts once was.

    Yeah, he DID help Gutts in a way, in the fight against Ganishka. :nod

    Otherwise, I don't see him switching sides. He may not have the same "ideology" as Griffith has, but it's still his duty to serve Godhand.

    That's what I mean. He only obeys Griffith cos he'd get pwnd if he didn't.

    He doesn't believe in Griffith in the same way as the others do.

    That alone gives freedom of movement. Ok maybe I don't mean change sides cos that's too radical, but what I meant was aiding Gutts/not obeying Griffith somehow.

    Sorry but throughout every scene which features Zodd, never have I seen Zodd's loyalty based on anything as deep as Griffith's other apostles who absolutely worships the ground he works on. Look at Grunbeld and Locus.

    You misunderstood me, Zodd doesn't obey Griffith because of fear, it's because of respect.

    Then it's only a matter of time till he changes sides.

    Guts realized there was more to his life and that he had a greater purpose. Zodd is too great to be apart of Griffith's pathetic dream.

    But that's practically his only reason for serving God hand though.

    I think the stronger the apostle, the more self aware they are. I mean look at Ganishka, he is an apostle but he is strong enough to oppose a Godhand.

    Hmmm, i dont think so. He's bent on being loyal to griffith along with that he hates gutts with a passion. it'd be kinda lame of it did happen.

    I don't want Zodd to switch sides or help them to much because then he probably will get killed by griffith.

    Zodd is meant to get sliced in to pieces by SK or Gutts :yell

    ^ He will help, but still be sliced to pieces by SK.

    The way I see it, Zodd likes fighting strong opponents. The strongest opponent available for him is SK, which they also have a rivalry going.

    Even if Zodd helped Gutts in some way, in the end, he would still duke it out regardless with SK, just like Jin and Mugen in Samurai Champloo are "friendly rivals."
