Quoted from manga Berserk, a demon said the following:

In any event...my desired is just one thing...

I think it is not a typo for "desire", since I had seen it multiple times in the manga, but can desired be used as a noun? I only found it to be an adjective in dictionary.


It would be a stretch, but it might be possible to use almost any adjective/participle as a noun sometimes, compare "Dearly beloved,..." or "Remember the fallen". I have not seen "desired" used that way, though.

  • In the context of a demon speaking, "my desired" could possibly refer to "my desired victim" or something like that. – J.R. Aug 24 '15 at 20:14
