Ubik is a major antagonist in Berserk. He has the form of a small floating demon wearing glasses and having tentacle-like legs. Ubik appears to be a deceiver; he is able to conjure up images from the past to persuade potential Apostles and God Hands to fulfill the ritual of sacrifice. It is he who convinced Griffith to continue walking towards his dream as a demon. On an interesting note, in one panel in chapter 306, Ubik is seen surrounded by many images taken from the "Hell" panel of an actual painting named "The Garden of Earthly Delights." Both the panel and the painting depict many fantastic yet disturbing visions that could represent Ubik's nature and purpose, one of the more interesting things being the giant tree man he rides in, believed by many to symbolize the Antichrist (a similar figure Ubik could very well have made Griffith into.) His name is borrowed from Philip K. Dick's "Ubik".

History

Golden Age Arc

During Eclipse, it was Ubik who convinced Griffith to continue walking towards his dream.

The Black Swordsman Arc

Ubik appears with the rest of the God Hand when they are summoned by the Count after he is beaten by Guts. During this sequence, Ubik is the one who reveals to Theresia the true fate of her Mother.

Tower of Conviction Arc

During the Incarnation Ceremony, Ubik, along with the other members of the God Hand, briefly manifested using the dead body of The Imp (Bishop Mozgus's disciple) and several of the evil spirits that had gathered in order to witness Femto's rebirth.

Ubik is also shown when the World Transformation occurs. He is seen surrounded by many images taken from the "Hell" panel of an actual painting, done by Hieronymus Bosch, named "The Garden of Earthly Delights." Both the panel and the painting depict many fantastic yet disturbing visions that could represent Ubik's nature and purpose, one of the more interesting things being the giant tree man he rides in, believed by many to symbolize the Antichrist (a similar figure Ubik could very well have made Griffith into).
