While nearly identical to hero, the Berserker class is distinguished by: higher stats, a unique map sprite depicting a swordsman wearing a winged helmet holding his sword upright, and a pink and green battle palette.
Outside of its unique idle stance, Berserker map animations are the same as the hero class except for the aforementioned winged helmet.
Like most unplayable classes in Mystery, the Berserker has no player palette, incomplete data for using the Arena, and their overworld graphics only work in certain maps.
In the remake, the Berserker is replaced with a Swordmaster wielding the Master Sword, while the Evil Fighter title is removed. On harder difficulties, there are two Swordmasters wielding Master Swords, but only one sword is droppable.
- It is speculated the unused Guardian class was going to have a similar role as a rare enemy with a powerful weapon encountered on Anri's Way.
- The Berserker class is weak to the swordslayer, much like the Hero or Mercenary, despite the fact without modifying the game or using cheats, it's impossible to obtain one before encountering the Berserker.
