Placed in charge of a fortress under siege by a band of mercenaries, Bazuso leaves the group frozen in fear on sight, intimidated by the immense reputation of the battleaxe wielding man. As Bazuso taunts his enemies, [[Guts]], a young independent mercenary, puts himself forward to remedy the problem; he tells his employer that he will kill Bazuso in exchange for seven pieces of gold. Though Bazuso intends to humor Guts in accepting his duel, expecting to kill the young swordsman with little effort, the ensuing battle is fought on equal terms. After an exchange of blows, Guts is fortunate enough to be able to damage Bazuso's battleaxe and deliver a powerful slash to his waist, forcing the colossal man to his knees. In his final moments, Bazuso attempts to yield for his life; Guts quickly drives his sword down into the neutralized man's head, splitting it half-way, one of Bazuso's eyes dislodged from the impact. It is Guts' triumph over Bazuso that earns him the attention of the [[Band of the Falcon]], and more specifically, [[Griffith]].

Bazuso appears as a boss in the 2016 game '''''[[Berserk and the Band of the Hawk]]'''''.

Bazuso is the first boss of the game, appearing in the first chapter, "The Golden Age". Though he has much higher health than enemies before him and packs high knockback, there is predictably nothing overtly challenging about him.

Bazuso also appears in the ''Endless Eclipse''. He can appear as both ally and boss, and does both in the minigame's first mission.
