Witcher Geralt: The Iconic Video Game Character

Witcher Geralt has become a household name in the gaming industry, and with good reason; his journey as a video game protagonist has been rapid, and he is incredibly relatable to many players. It’s not just his rugged good looks, or his dashing sense of style that has made Geralt of Rivia one of the most loved video game characters around, it’s also his wit and his retorts – his personality, in other words.

We’ve collected some of the best Geralt of Rivia quotes here to celebrate the upcoming Witcher game, which we’ve reviewed here, and which we said has the potential to be one of the best PC games of this year. These quotes are all from The Witcher games, and many of them tackle real-world issues like prejudice. Geralt teaches Ciri about fear being an illness, and she questions if people would be scared of her if they knew she was a mage. In this way, Geralt uses his wisdom to impart important life lessons, and his quote serves as a reminder that fear is often the reason for prejudice.

We’ve also included a few quotes from the books, as they showcase his more stoic and introspective nature, which is a nice change of pace from his more frequent banter in the games. If you’ve only played the games, then it may come as a surprise that Geralt is actually quite a reserved character and doesn’t crack jokes all the time. The strong reaction that Geralt shows to a vampire reflects his obvious loathing for certain monsters, while his banter with Dandelion reveals his reluctance to open up about his struggles, as he seems quite happy to play the joker.

The Best Geralt of Rivia Quotes

“When it comes to my profession, I’m very picky about who I take on as customers.”
- Geralt of Rivia

This quote explains why Geralt is often in such precarious predicaments with his customers. He prefers being a professional over being a hero, focusing on getting the job done, and not really caring about the politics or the people involved.

“I’m a Witcher. I kill monsters.”
- Geralt of Rivia

Geralt prefers being a professional over being a hero, and this quote really highlights that he’s just in it for the money. Being a Witcher is about killing monsters, and Geralt is a master of his craft – he knows what he’s doing.

“Lambert always made me feel like a damn apprentice.”
- Geralt of Rivia

Another quote that reveals Geralt’s reluctance to open up, this one shows his tense relationship with Lambert, who was training him as a Witcher.

“Never mistake my silence for ignorance.”
- Geralt of Rivia

Geralt’s favourite line in The Witcher 3 is teased, and this quote is also a good example of his witticism, as well as his character as a true badass. Silence can be powerful, but it can also mean that you know more than you’re letting on. In this case, Geralt is letting his opponent know that he’s not ignorant of their true motives.

“The best way to kill a vampire is to cut out its heart and cut off its head.”
- Geralt of Rivia

This strong reaction from Geralt is really what you would expect from someone who hates vampires, and who’s dedicated his life to hunting them.

“Hearts of stone do not beat.”
- Geralt of Rivia, Hearts of Stone

Geralt’s quote about capitalism is a little tongue in cheek, but it’s also pretty accurate. He frequently ends up in predicaments with customers who aren’t paying him, or who aren’t satisfied with his services, and this is always a source of frustration for him, as he knows he’s done his job.

“We both know she’s not your real daughter.”
- Geralt of Rivia, Hearts of Stone

Geralt’s limerick about Lambert is a little bit cheeky, but it’s also an accurate reflection of their tense relationship.

“Don’t be like me. Don’t make the same mistakes.”
- Geralt of Rivia
- Geralt to Ciri, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

In this quote, Geralt is teaching Ciri about responsibility, and he challenges the idea that great power comes with great responsibility. Ciri would have the chance to learn from his past mistakes, and maybe not make the same choices.

“Life goes on, even when you’re not watching.”
- Geralt of Rivia

The Witcher 3 may have been a bit of a low point for Geralt, but this quote serves as a reminder to keep going, and to not dwell on the past.

This is a nice reflection on Geralt’s life, and on the nature of being a Witcher. Geralt has a certain detachment when it comes to killing, and this quote explores that a little bit.

“Never regret anything. Regret is fear of change.”
- Geralt of Rivia

This quote is a little bit cheesy, but it actually serves as a pretty accurate reflection of Geralt’s character. His past is what it is, and he accepts it, and therefore has no regrets about the choices he’s made.

“I am no longer the man I once was. I’m something else now.”
- Geralt of Rivia

This line from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a little bit ominous, but it also shows how Geralt has changed, and how he has become something else.
