|Also called the Dread Emperor.|
Ganishka is a secondary antagonist in Berserk and a boss character in BERSERK and the Band of the Hawk. Unlike much of the Apostles, Ganishka does not side with the God Hand. After surviving much war and blood disputes, he established an iron-fisted empire in Kushan. His true form is the Fog Apostle.
He leads an army of Pishaka animals made by illicit sorcery to lay siege on Midland. At Vritannis, Ganishka finds himself faced by both Guts and the Neo Band of the Hawk. After a brutal fight, Skull Knight pierces the emperor with an attack redirected by Femto, thus triggering the World Tree's birth.
Ganishka is a very maniacal emperor who even when fearless is easily frightened.
As one of the most powerful bosses in the game, Ganishka uses his Fog Apostle form to fight players. He can rain lightning bolts and fire lightning spheres. Each time a part of his life bar is cut down, he will move around, either in the middle of the arena or the edge. He will also surround himself in a vortex of lightning to shock anyone too close to him. He will also form a large lightning ball and cause a massive electrocution if players are not careful.
