the reasoning behind Hercules losing to it is most likely due to its high speed attacks. Nine Live Blade Works was created for the purpose of killing Berserker multiple times within one second... but that honestly has nothing to really do with what you saidKeeper of Gil's Vault wrote:Nine Lives is a high level NP, of course it can penetrate God hand. We are talking about the paradox that a normal attack that is weaker than a NP in terms of destructive power can actually damage Berserker, while the NP cannot.
Anything rank B can damage berserker in some way
if you had rank D strength, but a Rank A wet noodle as a weapon, then by all means, that wet noodle has the ability to harm berserker (good luck though..)
if you had rank B strength, and a rank C NP... berserker would be harmed, but your weapon would most likely be destroyed as well (unless its famous for being unbreakable... then that's just where confusion sets in)
honestly its rather simple to understand. As long as whatever attacks berserker has at least 1 B rank trait, it can damage him... at least until god hand prevents further damage from the next attack
