The characters of ''VideoGame/FateExtra'', the SpinOff RPG to ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.



[[folder:Protagonist (CanonName: Hakuno Kishinami)]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/AtsushiAbe (M)(Drama CD/Anime), Creator/YuiIshikawa (F) (Anime)

The PlayerCharacter of the game, who can be either male or female. He/she begins as a generic student at Tsukumihara Academy, but soon realises that they have no memories of their true identity. After becoming one of the 128 participants in the Holy Grail War, they can choose a Servant of the Saber, Archer or Caster class. They are known as "Hakuno Kishinami" (male in the Manga, [[Anime/FateExtraLastEncore Anime]], and the drama CD) (In addition both genders are equally featured in promotional and side materials).

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: In the game, Hakuno is characterized as being fairly... well, plain - due in large part to TheReveal [[spoiler: that they were an NPC given a human will]], and their character arc is them becoming more emotional. In the anime, Hakuno starts off as aloof and distant, being filled with hatred for the Moon Cell and the way the system is run.
* BigDamnHeroes: To either [[spoiler:Rani or Rin]] at the start of the fourth chapter.
* BreakThemByTalking: A heroic example. In CCC, the Sentinels are obstructing the path to the bottom of Sakura Labyrinth with figurative and literal wall of ‘hearts’. To destroy that wall and proceed, the protagonist must gain access to the Secret Garden, essentially everything the Sentinels hides behind their ‘walls’ and bring those secrets into the open before the Punishment Time gives the final push to destroy the wall. More often than not, Punishment Time has the protagonist hurling insults at the respective Sentinels, [[WarriorTherapist all so they can make peace with those flaws]]. [[spoiler:Though against the Alter Egos, who are made of pure personalities, the Punishment Time is unambiguously fatal.]]
* CanonName: The official material, manga, anime, and drama CD names them "Hakuno Kishinami."
* ChekhovsGunman: Take a good look at the students in the back of the classroom during the prologue cutscenes.
* ChickMagnet: For being as average as they are, they do pretty well for themselves, regardless of gender. The protagonist even wins the affections of both Aozaki sisters.
* ClassicAntiHero: Mediocre in almost every aspect apart from their dogged refusal to just roll over and die, Hakuno winds up killing other Masters with grander ambitions and characters than theirs simply because they want to live. Ultimately, it's only when they discover that [[spoiler:they were never alive in the first place]], that they relinquish their fear and initiate actions that have shades of true heroism.
* CloningBlues:
** [[spoiler:Quickly lifted out of this by their Servant, who tells them that as Magical Constructs themselves, they view them as people.]]
** [[spoiler:A possible case near the end of the CCC Route. As the [[AllThereInTheManual CCC]] Dictionary implies that there might be another version of them that exists, which will continue on through the events of EXTRA, the originals still remain frozen, and Sakura gave the one from the CCC Route a new body to use.]]
** [[spoiler:In the anime Hakuno learns he's not even based on a person but is just the hatred of all the masters killed by Twice given form, he nearly gives on the war disgusted by his existence.]]
* CovertPervert: The narration during the scene in which Caster chastises the protagonist for letting her take more than 300k damage implies the reason the protagonist allowed Caster to take that much damage is due to wanting to hear [[OrgasmicCombat her yelps]]. Their reaction when they check Rin or Rani fixing their Servants’ magic circuit and heard that Kiara and Sakura need to get naked to install the program is to take a peek, all while playing it off as concern.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Brown hair and brown eyes.
* {{Determinator}}: First seen when they refuse to accept their death during the prelims. That's the reason why their Servants answer their call.
-->'''Talent''': Mental fortitude (Male), Never giving up (Female)
** Also in Fate/EXTRA CCC, in the later chapters, things starts to get grimmer and darker when the protagonist is trapped in this dark realm by [[spoiler:BB]]. But, he/she keeps crawling for a way out despite voices telling him/her to give up. Later, as the protagonist continues onward to the place where [[spoiler:his/her Servant was sealed by BB]], they keep on going despite being nearly [[spoiler:disintegrated]] along the way.
--> *[[spoiler:The deletion reacting up to their chest]]* ''It seems [[spoiler:my stomach has completely vanished]], (...) That’s great; my body feels lighter, I should be able to walk faster now.''
* DistractedByTheSexy: Their reaction to [[MarshmallowHell getting smothered by Kiara]];
-->''Beautiful flesh, is the phrase that comes into my mind. It’s like when a carnivorous beast comes upon fresh meat, meat that makes its deliciousness known to all five senses, and the beast rejoices. It seems that there exists in this world flesh that can do much the same thing, flooding all the senses with nothing but its beauty.''
-->''But — even so… Why am I finding it so hard to breathe?''
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Averted. While you do get no respect in the beginning from most of the other Masters, as you take down more and more of some of the best Masters in the War, they certainly start respecting your skills. [[spoiler:The BigBad even calls you the most extraordinary Master of all. And by the end of CCC,'' '''Gilgamesh''' ''acknowledges you as a Master.]]
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: The protagonist is a hit with the ladies no matter what their gender.
* FirstPersonSmartass: At times.
-->''Rin goes from comatose to bitch in three seconds flat.''
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the localized version, during the first day of the war, a fellow Master refers to you as ''[[spoiler:"the infamous ghost in the machine."]]'' It isn't quite clear why they do, so [[spoiler:it is likely a translation error, as the JP version has the master with a different concern]].
* GirlyRun: The female protagonist runs like this. They way how she walks slowly is also lady-like.
* HelloInsertNameHere: Despite having a canonical name, in the games themselves, the player may name them whatever they wish.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:In the end, the protagonist sacrifices himself/herself to seal away the Moon Cell and end the Holy Grail War.]]
%% MOD notice: Do not add Hime Cut. It has to be matched by personality traits, not just the hairstyle.
* HumanPopsicle: [[spoiler:Their originals have been placed in cryogenic suspension.]]
* InformedAbility: Played with. Hakuno is referred to as a terrible Master in the beginning, and their servants even tell them that they are not at their peak, but a check of their Servants' canon stats shows Archer with higher Strength, Luck, and Clairvoyance than under Rin Tohsaka, and Gilgamesh with stats equal to those under Tokiomi Tohsaka. It can be assumed that by the end of the war, they have grown into a stronger Master and their Servants have regained their former strength.
* InSeriesNickname: Goes hand-on-hand with HelloInsertNameHere; you can also pick a personal nickname. But in general: Saber’s Praetor, Archer’s Master, Caster’s Goshujin-sama(Master, doubles as Husband), Gilgamesh’s Mongrel, Red Lancer’s Pig (male protagonist) and Baby Squirrel (female protagonist), Sakura’s and BB’s Senpai, [[spoiler: and after Leo’s death, Rani’s Chief/President]].
* InteractiveNarrator: Sometimes, it's hard to tell when the protagonist is thinking or actually talking. The only time we know they're talking is when someone replies.
* NonActionGuy: Early on, it's mentioned that you're basically dead once your Servant gets KO'd.
** [[spoiler:Averted in the adaptations of the game, as Hakuno is as active as any other normal Master would be, and does his best to aid his Servant in any way possible, such as (in one instance of the Drama CD) distracting Dan Blackmore by being a target themselves for Sir Dan's code cast, which allows Saber to cut down Archer's Noble Phantasm without the distraction from Sir Dan. As he still pales in strength in comparison to other, stronger Masters, he relies on his wits and intuition to win.]]
* OfficialCouple: Male with Saber (in Blossom Sensei Vol.3, manga, anime and drama CD) and Caster (in Blossom Sensei Vol.3), Female with Archer (in Blossom Sensei Vol.3 and the third volume of the official anthology comic).
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: [[spoiler:Anime Hakuno is a Dead Face, someone who has died, but still lives. Rani declares that using his new ThePowerOfHate-based powers will result in LossOfIdentity, and Rin basically cements the undead status two episodes later.]]
* PlayerCharacter: An interesting case where Hakuno's initial personality is that of a blank slate (due to their memory loss) just like any other player character, but as the story progresses, their narration makes it quite clear that they are developing their own motivations and traits, thus averting FeaturelessProtagonist. Even though dialogue choices are available to the player, the story and character interactions are linear and only change between silly or serious options.
** [[spoiler:TheReveal only adds to the above.]]
* ThePowerOfHate: In the anime, Hakuno more or less admits to this. For some reason, he feels extreme hatred towards the Moon Cell, and it empowers him to {{Determinator}} levels.
* PsychicDreamsForEveryone: [[spoiler: Shown Gil's past from the perspective of Enkidu, with Enkidu being the one giving them the visions.]]
* PurelyAestheticGender: There are very few dialogue changes or differences in gameplay based on your chosen gender. For example, aside from one optional comment, Caster will still refer to the female protagonist as her husband, Issei will accuse you of talking to Rani out of lust, and random Masters will clearly act as though the protagonist is either male or a lesbian. On the other hand, the female protagonist has some bonus dialogue with Archer, which is quite funny.
* TheReveal:
** [[spoiler:The protagonists are actually [=NPCs=] based off one of the previously living Humans, but somehow wound up developing his/her own will and becoming one of the Masters in the Holy Grail War.]]
** [[spoiler:In the ending, it is additionally revealed that the originals are still alive, but have been placed in cryogenic suspension since the [[NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup only doctor who can perform the procedure that can cure them died in the same attack]]. Until another one can repeat the procedure, they're going to stay there. And even ''if'' the original was to be revived, they would have no memories and be a different person from the AI copy that participated in the Grail War.]]
** [[spoiler:Episode 8 of the anime reveals that the Hakuno we've been following isn't the real Hakuno, who died at the start with her servant Saber. He is just the hatred of all the masters killed by Twice formed around the original Hakuno.]]
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: So much so that Rin mistakes them for a NPC instead of a participating Master. [[spoiler:She is not totally wrong.]]
* SailorFuku: The female protagonist wears this in ''CCC''.
* SchrodingersPlayerCharacter: Both male and female protagonists can be seen in the background of the prologue. You only play as one of them per playthrough.
** [[spoiler:In CCC, there’s a slight variation between female and male protagonist, most glaring is Meltlilith’s infatuation shifts to Archer if the protagonist is female and as a result, male protagonist can’t unlock Archer’s third SG.]] Different Servant and Gender combination choice also changes several of their relationship between their chosen Servant.
* ShounenHair: The male protagonist's hairstyle.
* StaringDownCthulhu: By the end of Week [[spoiler:5, the protagonist [[TookALevelInBadass has become tough enough]] to no longer be affected by Julius's DeathGlare.]]
* SweetTooth: CCC materials reveal that the Female Protagonist likes candy and the Male Protagonist himself favors anmitsu (a type of Japanese dessert).
* UnwantedHarem: While both genders wind up with tons of chicks after them, it seems to be the male protagonist that stands out in canon. It even carries into side materials for him.
* VirtualGhost: [[spoiler:Similar to Alice and Twice, they are basically a being that can only exist in the virtual world; the difference between them and Twice and Alice is that they are a digital ghost of a still-living human in cryogenic stasis back on Earth.]]
* TheVoiceless: Played with; Hakuno is the narrator and thus speaks to other characters without the dialogue box, and in addition, they have not been voiced in the main games to allow the players to project their voice onto them. However, at multiple times, their Servants (especially Saber) mention that they have a very beautiful voice. Naturally, this is dropped in the anime.
* WhatBeautifulEyes: Both Saber and Rin note many times of their determined eyes when they have their goal set in mind. In CCC, BB's infatuation with the protagonist often revolves around the fact that she likes their glaring eyes, and her Secret Garden is the only one that has the "looking into each other's eyes" pose.

[[folder:Shinji Matou]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/HiroshiKamiya

The Master of Rider. Like his ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' counterpart, he is a "friend" to the Protagonist in the loosest sense of the word, behaving like an arrogant and childish bully. His objective in the Holy Grail War is simply to win for the prestige.

* AdaptationalHeroism: While he's still a dick, he's less enough of one for fans to find him somewhat tolerable.
* AdaptationalVillainy: His anime counterpart turns on Hakuno and tried to kill him before the Grail War even starts, whereas his game version at least acted as though they were friends until they learned they were matched up against each other. Even then, his game counterpart only did so under the rules, and thought the whole thing was a game.
* AndYouThoughtItWasAGame: He doesn't realize it until [[spoiler:his defeat and death at the hands of the protagonist]].
* ArtificialHuman: [[spoiler:Either he’s a designer baby or a homunculus; his parents seem less to have ‘birthed’ him and more to have ‘created’ him. His genius while being 8 years old is because of that.]]
* BloodFromTheMouth: [[spoiler: After Meltlilith stabs him.]]
* ChildProdigy: [[spoiler:In real life, he's actually an eight-year-old gaming prodigy.]]
* DisappearedDad: [[spoiler:Or rather, one he never met, since his mother used a sperm donor.]]
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler: Hacks the system to place a virus inside himself, and lets himself get absorbed by Meltlilith to nerf her absurdly high level.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler:Really loves [[CurbstompBattle beating up weak players]], but just cannot accept Meltlilith's insane gamebreaking level and thus throws in his share of effort to take her out.]]
* {{Expy}}: Looks pretty much identical to ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight's'' Shinji Matou, but with a lighter hair color and, according to the playable Archer, being actually [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold good at heart]].
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:Subverted in EXTRA, but in CCC, he willingly sacrifices himself and makes peace with the Protagonist before dying.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: He repeatedly references "prize money" like in any other online gaming tourney, even offering to split it if the Protagonist throws the match. With everyone else aiming for the Holy Grail, Shinji clearly has no idea what the War is actually about... which becomes clear [[spoiler: when he loses]].
* HeelRealization: After he got stabbed by Meltlilith [[spoiler:and used as a virus along with Lancer to corrupt Sakura]], he has a visible change of attitude close to HeroicBSOD. [[spoiler:It seems he keeps watching the Grail War even after he died and plunged into the sea of imaginary number, as he notices the protagonist's cries and remembers him in the following weeks. When the student council members’ collective memories is back, he quickly shifts into a non-antagonistic role, even when still insisting that IWorkAlone.]]
%%* InfantImmortality: [[AvertedTrope Averted.]]]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:By Meltlilith in CCC.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: Justified. [[spoiler: He thinks everything is a game during Extra and doesn't realize the danger he and the others face. He completely drops this and is a NiceGuy in CCC since he remembers what happened. There's also the fact that he's really only eight years old, and children at that age are still rather self-engaged.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold:
** According to the playable Archer, he's this. Considering that he thinks it's all a game [[spoiler: and he's only eight years old]], its very possible that he's sincere about his offer ([[ButThouMust which you cannot accept]]) before the Elimination Battle, rather than just being a condescending jerk.
** If the protagonist loses said battle, however, the emphasis is put on the Jerk part. [[KickTheDog He basically says he hates you for challenging him, still thinking it's a game.]] This is because all of your dialogue options before it starts have either you or your Servant throwing his offer back in his face.
** At the start of CCC, when he faced deletion, the protagonist tries to help him. But he tries to get them away by shouting abuses, because that's just the way 'friends' are.
* LooseLips: He tends to brag (and drop info in the process) about his Servant a lot. Justified, since he's [[spoiler: an eight-year-old kid, and kids at that age tend to brag a lot]]. His overconfidence doesn't help, either.
* NeverMyFault: All the time. [[spoiler: But let's face it, most people at eight years old do the same thing.]]
* MythologyGag: He's arrogant, has quite a few female classmates fawning over him and is somehow friends with the main character, just like his ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' counterpart.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:Infects his body with a virus so that when Meltlilith absorbs him, it takes away her invincibility.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:He's actually only eight years old, despite having the appearance of a teenager in the game.]]

[[folder:Dan Blackmore]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/{{Mugihito}}

The Master of Archer, an elderly soldier who serves the Queen of England. His absolute adherence to chivalry puts him at extreme odds with his Servant, whose own method of fighting is incompatible with Blackmore's ideals.
* AdaptationalVillainy: The corruption of the Moon Holy Grail War by Chakravartin in the anime adaptation has marooned him and Archer on the second ring of the Moon Cell. Having been trapped there for more than 50 years [[spoiler:after having already lost 999 years ago but given a second chance with the possibility that Moon Cell never recorded his HonorBeforeReason behaviour]], he has lost much of his honour and only strives to kill Masters and Servants as quickly as possible in the hopes that doing so enough (he has slain about 30 by the time Hakuno and Saber cross paths with him) will fix the system and finally allow him and his Servant to ascend. This can be seen in him attempting to snipe Hakuno the moment he enters the floor; the Dan Blackmore from the game would have been insulted at the thought of something so ruthless and unnecessary.
* BackFromTheDead: Not Blackmore himself, but it's part of his motivation. [[spoiler: He wants to claim the Holy Grail in order to bring back his wife.]]
* ColdSniper: He used to be one.
%%* CoolOldGuy
%%* TheFettered
* {{Foreshadowing}}: He picks up on [[spoiler:aspects of Saber's and Caster's identities]] well before you do.
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:Even when he dies, he is happy because he was able to serve as a stepping stone for a bright new soul, the protagonist's, to take root.]]
* HonorBeforeReason: Despite (or possibly because of) his background as an experienced sniper, he insists on following the rules of the War and more than once prevents his Servant from finishing you off because they did it outside the Arena.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:He even gives advice to the protagonist.]]
* ImprobableAimingSkills: In ''Last Encore'', his aiming skill at first seems absurd when he is trying to snipe Hakuno from a clocktower miles away from the castle Hakuno appeared in with nothing more than an iron-sight. [[spoiler:But then it turns ridiculous when it is revealed he was hiding in the castle all this time and was using the bells in the clocktower to deflect his shots to hit his targets.]]
* NecroMantic: [[spoiler:Wants to bring his wife back to life with the Grail.]]
* RetiredBadass: Used to be a sniper in the military.
%%* WorthyOpponent

!!!Voiced by: Creator/AiNonaka

The Master of Caster, a mysterious young girl that supposedly haunts the third floor of the school. When she meets the protagonists, she's happy to finally have someone to play with.
* AbusiveParents: According to Alice, her ''"Daddy got mad if [she] said it hurts"''.
* AliceAllusion: Besides her name and appearance, she and her Servant drop other ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland'' references, such as to the March Hare, as well as to ''Literature/{{Jabberwocky}}'', another work by "[[Creator/LewisCarroll Professor Dodgson]]".
* AssimilationBackfire: [[spoiler: In the anime adaption, she absorbs the data from items located throughout the floor to sustain her physical form, but doing so begins to backfire when she takes in the mana of too many things, resulting in her body transforming into a disgusting ShapeshifterMashup of the things she has drained of mana, that eventually loses any semblance of a human form]].
* BlessedWithSuck: [[spoiler: In the anime adaption, due to her status as being already deceased, the Moon Cell couldn't kill her when she technically lost to Hakuno in their skirmish, allowing her to continue her existence. Unfortunately, it came with a whole new page of complications when the Moon Cell's other sets of programming tried to erase her on the foundation as a "ghost", causing her to suffer an endless groundhog day tug-of-war for a millennia instead.]]
* CheerfulChild: Just like [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Ilya]], when she's not being a CreepyChild, she's this.
* CreepyChild: She tends to say some pretty unnerving things, and it gets more pronounced when she's around her Servant.
* CreepyTwins: Pulls it off with her Servant, who copies her form.
* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler:She was originally a girl who lived in England during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, when she was gravely injured during an air raid towards the end of the war. During her stay at the hospital, it was discovered that she had magic circuits and was kept alive for research purposes. After several years, her physical body died but her mind continued to live on in the cyber world.]]
* ElegantGothicLolita: She wears blue and white in contrast to her Servant.
* EmptyShell: [[spoiler:In Meltlilith’s dungeon. Caster was turned into a doll and torn apart by Meltlilith, and because Alice's connection with her Servant is like a mirror, this left Alice as helpless as the torn doll. She’s described as “the soul leaving from [her] eyes, even though she’s still alive,” after making her last words a plea to give Caster back. Only by returning the real Caster to Alice can she can finally pass on.]]
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:She even comforts her Servant.]]
* FateWorseThanDeath: In the anime [[spoiler: she becomes a terrifying monster made up of items and objects that she drained the data of to sustain herself. In this state, she cannot speak or really control her actions, lashing out in fear and pain until she went mad. She only regains her sanity when she spots Hakuno with the book he read to her in the past, just in time for Saber and Rin to kill her.]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** A lot of her dialogue during the tail-end of the 3rd week remarks on how she and the protagonist are similar, except that the protagonist still has somewhere to go back to.
** Also, look at [[spoiler:her limbs. Those are ball-joint limbs]].
** In the anime, [[spoiler:look at the shadow of the monster.]]
* HopelessBossFight: In the anime, [[spoiler:because of Nursery Rhyme's Noble Phantasm, her monster form is unkillable since a decisive blow will cause time to reset to the beginning of the day. The only reason she's defeated is because she regains her sanity at the last moment and opts not to have Nursery Rhyme activate it.]]
%%* WomanInWhite
* MysticalWhiteHair: She can use magic like any other Master. It also accentuates her mysteriousness.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Made doubly confusing by her Servant also going by the name Alice. Thankfully, the in-game text is ColorCodedForYourConvenience.
* VirtualGhost: [[spoiler:Though her physical body died a long time ago, she still lives on as a ghost in the cyber world.]]

[[folder:Lanrukun[=/=]Lil' Ronnie]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/YuuKobayashi

The Master of Lancer, a mentally unstable woman who constantly wears the clown mascot costume of a popular hamburger shop. She will only eat that which she loves, resulting in a bizarre eating disorder that resulted in her consuming her own parents, pet and child. Her wish is to obtain the Holy Grail and make all of humanity like her.
* AdaptedOut: She does not appear in the anime adaptation.
* CoolMask: Never seen without her clown mask.
* HiddenEyes: According to the protagonist, only the black pupils are visible through the mask.
* HorrorHunger: She can only eat things or ''[[ImAHumanitarian people]]'' she loves.
%%* IdiotHair
* ImAHumanitarian: As a part of her eating disorder, she has eaten her parents and ''her baby''.
* IWasQuiteALooker: In the Manga version, before the start of her disorder.
* LeanAndMean: She is rather thin while also being the second tallest female in the entire Nasuverse (and that's only because Meltlilith's height includes her fake legs), and she is insane.
%%* MalevolentMaskedMen
* MonsterClown: She's a cannibal who dresses like a clown.
%%* PeekABangs
* ShoutOut: An obvious reference to the Japanese version of Ronald [=McDonald=] and his "RAN-RAN-RUUUU" catchphrase. Her English name is also a pun to 'Ronald'.
-->'''Protagonist''': ''Curly red hair. Clown make-up and costume. Awkward, gangly figure. [[LampshadeHanging Why does this ring a bell?]]''
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Due to katakana ambiguity, her Japanese name could be romanized either "Lanrukun" or "Ranruu-kun".
* TragicMonster: It's not ''her'' fault she's crazy. Even her desire to make all humanity like her is rooted not in some sort of evil scheme, but in the fact that she's tired of being a lonely freak and genuinely believes humankind would be better off if they were like her.
%%* WhiteMaskOfDoom

[[folder:Monji Gatou]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KentaroIto

The Master of Berserker, a fanatic who ascribes to a number of different religions and worships his Servant as his god. He believes that he can save humanity through his self-made religion and strives to make his Servant into a true deity. Unfortunately, he is an incredibly poor Master and only serves to hinder his Servant's true potential.
* AdaptedOut: He does not appear in the anime adaptation.
* TheAntiNihilist: He really did go on a pilgrimage to study every single religion to get a better understanding of the world; it’s just the conclusion he reached is that humanity are such assholes they would create religions just to gain scapegoats for their own misery in form of the gods. Even so, he still thinks humanity has a chance simply because it’s just because of their luck that they suffer, and there’s always a next time.
* AscendedExtra: Plays a more important role in ''CCC'' as one of the former Masters who joins the student council to escape. He even offers help and advice several times and is involved in a few side quests.
* BeliefMakesYouStupid: It's not clear whether he would have been this nuts without religious belief, but it is noted that because of his incompetence, his Servant isn't capable of fighting at full power.
* CorruptChurch: He indicates that he has joined many religions, and expresses disgust at the "compromises and hypocrisies" that organized religion makes to survive in the world.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Walks into a barrier set up by Jinako which will delete anyone who enters.]]
* LastRequest: [[spoiler:When he loses and starts fading away, he begs Berserker to let him hear her voice. His wish is granted, because Berserker loses her Mad Enhancement and regains her ability to speak. She explains that she is not a god and bids him farewell, promising to meet him again when he is reincarnated.]]
* NotWhatItLooksLike: When you visit the girl you saved in the Nurse's Office, he'll think you're "seeing her" in a different manner:
--> ''I did not want to believe it, but a clandestine tryst is being held! Young [[SchrodingersPlayerCharacter man]]/[[PurelyAestheticGender lady]], [[SexIsEvil follow the path of abstinence and righteousness!]]''
* NoIndoorVoice: [[LampshadeHanging You can even point it out.]]
* ReligiousBruiser: All his jubbled mess of religious talk is not just for show. When he’s facing someone with strong religious background, he can hold a conversation about obscure supernatural references like taunting Caster with aburaage and explaining what the jhanas are when Kiara speaks of it.
* WarriorPoet: See ReligiousBruiser. When comparing the Far Side of the Moon with Shangri-la or the Dragon King’s Palace because its beauty is eternal unlike the Near Side’s day-to-day slaughter, you cannot help but to agree that he, in some way, is right.

[[folder:Julius Berkisk Harway]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/WataruHatano

The Master of Assassin, who initially appears as a teacher.
* BackFromTheDead:
** [[spoiler:He becomes a cyber ghost after his defeat, and appears in the Arena on the first day of the 7th week.]]
** [[spoiler: In the anime, he became a Dead Face when the cast meets him in Episode 8 and is determined to kill Hakuno.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: [[spoiler: In CCC, he saves the protagonist after BB tries to have them deleted because he remembers their acts of kindness to him as a Virtual Ghost in the first game.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: He's been an assassin from a young age, was rejected by his father to the point where he wasn't even permitted to call him 'father' and [[spoiler:was forced to kill the only person who ever showed him any love.]] It's a surprise that he's as restrained as he is.
* DeathGlare: He stares at the protagonist in a ''very'' unnerving manner, and its effects are described well enough to be considered InUniverse NightmareFuel and ParanoiaFuel.
* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler:After he grants his mother's last wish, to protect Leo, he planned to join her in death.]]
* DissonantSerenity: When you face him [[spoiler: the second time]], at least at first.
* EvenEvilHasStandards; He's rather disturbed by the implications of Kiara's hacking, which could easily be seen as mind raping the target to get their secrets and break them psychologically.
%%* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:Averted the first time you beat him, played straight the second time.]]
%%* FreudianExcuse
* MonsterSobStory: [[spoiler:To the point where the protagonist actually cries for him or tries to hold his hand. The protagonist feels some deep empathy with his lack of identity given their own issues with amnesia.]]
* MythologyGag: He's a [[TheStoic stoic]] teacher[=/=][[spoiler:assassin]] who is very dark and brooding.
* OnlySaneMan: As the only [[YoungerThanHeLooks ‘adult’]] in the Student Council, he becomes the only one who grounds the rest to their mission while they often got sidetracked.
* PlayingWithSyringes: When he was a kid, he had his liver removed ''without'' anesthesia just to see how he reacted to pain.
* RedBaron: His reputation as an assassin earned him the nickname "Black Scorpion".
* TallDarkAndHandsome: A female student mentions this trope word for word, but also put emphasis on the Dark part.
* TheUnfavorite: He wasn't born with "that which was needed to lead the Harways", which meant he was treated ''very'' poorly.
* VirtualGhost: [[spoiler:After his first defeat.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Implied in the series of visions preceding the second battle with him. Outright stated so by Leo in CCC when he says both him and Julius are in a same age, and Leo is about 15.

[[folder:Rin Tousaka]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KanaUeda

The Master of Lancer. She is a descendant of the Tousaka lineage of magi and one of the most famous spirit hackers in the world. Despite looking and acting the same as her ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' counterpart, she is a different person. An honors student and the idol of Tsukimihara Academy.
* BiTheWay: Thanks to the protagonist's PurelyAestheticGender.
* CreepyCoolCrosses: Like her F/SN counterpart, she has one on her top.
* {{Expy}}: Looks and behaves almost identically to ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight's'' Rin Tohsaka and even has the same name, though Archer notes that they're not the same person. Rather, she is apparently the original Tohsaka's niece. Since magecraft in the world of Extra works is based in hacking, she's much more talented with technology than her predecessor. [[spoiler:Also, in the real world she's actually blonde.]]
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:Calm about it when you defeat Lancer on Rani's route and says she's glad, since she's sure that the protagonist will defeat Leo.]]
* FingerlessGloves: That are part of her jumper.
* FusionDance: [[spoiler:She fused with her servant in the anime and can use his powers whenever she wants to.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:One more gentle than the protagonist has ever seen her give.]]
* GirlishPigtails: The "two side up" variant that the original Rin from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' also had.
* GracefulLoser: She's genuinely happy when the protagonist beats her and wishes the best for her.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: If questioned about school or her dreams before the match, she admits that after everything is done she'd like to just quit all this terrorism stuff, head back to Japan and go to a normal school without having to worry about anything anymore.
* IWasJustPassingThrough: According to her, she just wanted to say hello to Julius, saving your life was an unintended side effect. Could be true: She ''really'' hates the Harways.
* LaResistance: [[spoiler:She's a member of one such group in the real world, fighting against the Western European Plutocracy.]]
* MaleGaze: In the official art.
* MoneyFetish: She hacked a 5M worth of Ruby into the commissary. She's noted by many as 'money-worshipper'. Because the circumstances of her birth are harsh even though she's from a notable family, money is equal to power for her. But as this is [[{{Tsundere}} Rin]] we're talking about, she of course denies it... at least until the protagonist calls her out for being a capitalistic bitch in CCC.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: She feels up the protagonist on their first meeting, thinking they're a regular NPC. She does this regardless of their gender, and [[PurelyAestheticGender they have]] [[LesYay identical reactions]].
* OrderVersusChaos: The Chaos to Leo's Order. She's willing to struggle for freedom, even if it means disrupting the Harway's peace.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Referred to as "Rin Tousaka" in the translation, instead of "Tohsaka" as in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.
* StockingFiller: Wears one garter.
* ShoutOut: During the lunch scene on her route:
--> ''... [[Memes/TheSimpsons (Urge to kill, rising.)]]''
* {{Tsundere}}: A Harsh type, just like the original Rin.
* WorthyOpponent: By the time her match comes around, should you be on the proper route for it, she admits to the protagonist's ability and rather wistfully admits that she rather likes them and that they could have been friends if they'd met in the real world.

[[folder:Rani VIII]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/AsamiSanada

The Master of Berserker and an alchemist from the Atlas Institute in Egypt. Because she is a homunculus created specifically to participate in the Holy Grail War, she does not appear to follow her own will and considers herself a tool of her teacher. WordOfGod states her creator was Sialim Eltnam Re-Atlasia, [[Videogame/MeltyBlood Sion Eltnam]]'s younger twin sister, the original having died in this universe.

* AbsoluteCleavage: She wears a blouse with a V-shaped neckline that plunges half way down to her navel.
* AlchemyIsMagic: She is an alchemist of the Atlas Institution, and practices astrology as well as spirit hacking.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: In her lunch scene, she cooks Egyptian food, and in [[spoiler:the 5th Week's [[IntimateHealing Magic Circuit Repair scene]]]] Archer wonders whether she's Egyptian or Babylonian. The presence of a bindhi on her forehead also suggests an Indian influence in her design. In ''CCC'' she clarifies that she's Egyptian, but her creator enjoyed Indian culture and that influenced her design somewhat.
* {{Astrologer}}: She can also do this, uses this talent to divine information about you and several of your enemies.
* BecomeARealBoy: [[spoiler:Her goal and what happens on her route.]]
* CovertPervert: Her third SG dwells in the fact that she's too dependent to outside figure, hating that, but doesn't really know what to do to rebel. When noted that her contradiction of the reason why she's GoingCommando is because she can't make differences between rational thought and personal preferences, she has a revelation of her own freedom by embracing her inner perversion and becomes a shameless exhibitionist. It's as ridiculous as it sounds.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Purple eyes and hair
* DeadpanSnarker: She seems to grow into this in CCC. When Rin's insensitive about Sakura's embarrassment of the DoubleEntendre she said about the protagonist's dive inside Sakura's internal working, Rani comforts Sakura by making a jab at Rin.
--> "I am still studying emotions myself, but Miss Tohsaka is a truly excellent teacher. Of what not to do, that is."
* EmotionlessGirl: Due to being a homunculus. A major part of her route is her coming to terms with her feelings for the protagonist.
* {{Expy}}: Of both [[VideoGame/MeltyBlood Sion]] (an alchemist of Atlas with purple hair) and [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Ilya]] (a homunculus made specifically to take part in the Holy Grail War who is the Master of [[spoiler:Berserker]]). She also bears a resemblance to [[Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena Anthy]].
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:If you're on Rin's route, this is what happens after you beat her in the 6th week Elimination Battle. Also happens in the anime, staying in the dying Seocnd Floor while wishing Hakuno good luck.]]
* FashionableAsymmetry: Her stockings are different colors, and she ties part of her hair in a right-sidetail.
* {{Meganekko}}: Her glasses are actually scanners with a variety of functions. In ''CCC'', she also declares that "girls with glasses are supreme".
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:She somehow survives both her own self-destruction ''and'' being stabbed by ''[[OneHitKill Gae Bolg]]'' regardless of which girl is saved.]]
* OurHomunculiAreDifferent: Unlike other homunculi featured in the {{Franchise/Nasuverse}}, it's shown that at least some of her internal organs are made of opal or at least something that looks like it. Her heart is made of both etherlite and opal. She's also designed with a self-destruct mechanism.
%%* PurpleEyes
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler:During her battle with Rin, she notices that she's likely to lose, and due to a directive, she is to destroy herself ''and'' the Moon Cell in case of failure. It doesn't work due to the protagonist's intervention, regardless of who you choose to save.]]
* UnskilledButStrong: She's an excellent hacker and a powerful Master, but in battle she is noted to display much less skill than Tohsaka, [[spoiler:which gives the latter the edge when the are paired during the third round. Rani knows it as well as it turns what would have been an even fight into one in Tohsaka's favor, causing her to attempt to destroy the Moon Cell itself.]]
%%* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
%%* ZettaiRyouiki

[[folder:Leonard Bistario Harway]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/RomiPark

The Master of Saber. Leo is the heir to the Harway family that controls a third of the world's land and two thirds of its wealth. He seeks the Holy Grail to expand the influence of the Harways to the entire world, sincerely believing that it is in humanity's best interest.

He is supremely confident in his ability, having never known defeat or failure. Because of this, he does not even bother to hide the identity of his Servant as Gawain, one of the Knights of the Round Table. However, this means he has never experienced normal human emotions such as despair or courage.

* AffablyEvil: He's pretty nice throughout the game to the protagonists, [[spoiler: even after they kill his brother.]]
%%* DarkMessiah
* EvilDebtCollector: Played for laughs in CCC; after the protagonist borrows his money to buy something for Sakura, he immediately sics Gawain on them to collect the debt. According to WordOfGod, the male protagonist hates him for that.
%%* FaceDeathWithDignity
* FatalFlaw: [[spoiler:Not his pride, which is largely justified. Rather, he lacks perspective and the emotions and traits associated with overcoming adversity such as determination and ambition.]]
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Surprisingly, he's foolish to Julius' responsible. He always drags the reluctant Julius along for some perverted hijinks. [[spoiler:From his monologue after Gawain finally got curbstomped by BB, he seems to want to make up the time of not being a normal high school student before he was defeated in the Grail War.]]
* GentlemanAndAScholar: He is very charming and brilliant, and honestly believes ''he'' will win the Holy Grail Tournament. What keeps him from being an InsufferableGenius is his mannerisms and innocent outlook of the world's state of affairs.
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:After his defeat at the hands of the protagonist.]]
* InformedAttribute: He's referred to as the strongest Master, but it's not exactly difficult to win [[spoiler:when your Servant is literally invincible.]] He has a simplistic world view, little emotional depth or understanding, and generally fails to use any sort of actual tactics. Some of this is intentional, but it can become difficult to see why he's taken so seriously. He ''is'' bright enough not to fall for obvious traps, but Gawain is easy enough to provoke, which allows the protagonist to disable Gawain's abilities enough to have a chance at winning.
* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler:What he truly needed to be able to become a king was to know defeat. But in learning defeat, he is immediately doomed thanks to the rules of the Holy Grail War.]]
%%* KnightTemplar
* LightIsNotGood: Closely associated with the Sun.
* NotSoStoic: Gets really excited at the prospect of fighting the protagonist. [[spoiler: Also, when he's defeated. He even [[TearsOfRemorse cries]].]]
* OrderVersusChaos: The Order to Rin's Chaos. He promotes peace at the cost of individual freedom.
* PlayingWithSyringes: [[spoiler:He had extensive surgery when he was only ''three'' years old.]]
* TheStoic: Responds to everything very calmly, even the prospect of his brother dying.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it Leonard or Leonardo? The official translation uses both at times.
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: He's fine with letting the world stagnate as long as peace is maintained in the process.
* VisionaryVillain: He truly believes that his taking control of the human race will lead to an era of peace and stability. The protagonist often states that they sense no animosity or maliciousness in Leo, just an unwavering conviction.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He believes that what humanity desires most is comfort and stability, and if it takes [[KillEmAll wiping out]] [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide all of Asia]] to create that stability, [[AMillionIsAStatistic so be it]]. He also considers restricting the use of technology, and hence of {{Magitek}}, to the elite - that is, his family and their allies - to be in the best interest of everyone. The masses could ''never'' use such power wisely, so Leo and the Harways will do it for them.
* WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide: The population of Asia is viewed as '...expendable' should it come to that.

* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:At least in the anime, and there's the posibility of BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor. He and Saver defeat Saber and her (original) Master, and take control over the Moon Cell with Saver's Noble Phantasm.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: His name is mentioned in the prologue during Taiga's lecture, and his cyber ghost pops up on the third week. Also, after the route split, Tohsaka compares the protagonist to him, though it isn't explained why. He's also the narrator for the monologues given before each round.
* DarkMessiah: [[spoiler:Identified as such in the Extra Materials.]]
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler:Died countless times in his attempt to reach the core of the Moon Cell, only to be resurrected due to his NPC status. He continuously tried again until he succeeded.]]
* DissonantSerenity: When he mentions his dream is, in his own words:
--> '''Twice''': [[spoiler: ''"To see mankind engage in a grand war of mutual extinction."'']]
--> '''Protagonist''': [[spoiler: ''There's no hint of insanity visible in his eyes. Naturally, and with obvious sincerity he can somehow utter such a statement of absolute madness.'']]
* DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans[=/=]UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: [[spoiler:Decides that endless war is the best way to get humanity out of the rut it's in, and is willing to murder countless people indirectly (through the Holy Grail War) and directly (the previous winners before the protagonist) to start one.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To the protagonists. [[spoiler:He died in the same incident, started out as a NPC who became self-aware, and fought until he became strong enough to win and reach the Moon Cell, just like the protagonists did. Their intentions, however, are very different.]]
* ForeverWar: [[spoiler:What he wants to bring about.]]
%%* NarratorAllAlong

* PronounTrouble: In-universe, he tends to rapidly shift back and fourth between the third and first persons, sometimes within the same sentence.
* ShellShockedVeteran: [[spoiler: ''From childhood''. It was so bad, just seeing images depicting war gave him really bad panic attacks.]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: When he describes his backstory. [[spoiler: To be more accurate, his original's backstory.]]
* TraumaInducedAmnesia: [[spoiler:He was orphaned in a war in the '70s, and only remembered it as he lay dying after the terrorist attack in 1999.]]

[[folder: Misao Amari]]
!!Misao Amari
!!!Voiced by: Ayaka Imamura

A student at Tsukumihara Academy who is Shinji's girlfriend and Hakuno's friend. She is a brand new character made for the anime.

* AmbiguousSituation: Her fate at the end of the first episode is left vague. Shinji mentions hiding her in a safe place, but her name appears later on the tower in the school, indicating she might have been deemed worthy of becoming a Master. [[spoiler: Shinji's brutual stabbing of Hakuno, and the Moon Cell itself massacring the students and NPCs left also leaves her fate very up in the air, until Episode 6, when she's revealed to have made it to the third floor, but even still its not clear if she is still on the floor, dead, or moved on, as the floor messes with people's minds, and by the end of the next episode, her fate is left completely unresolved]].
* BitchInSheepsClothing: While initially acting nice and friendly in Episode 1, when she reappears later in Episode 6, her personality is much more hostile and cold, making it clear her friendliness was a cover.
* CanonForeigner: A brand new character introduced in ''Last Encore'' without any connection to any NPC in the games or past characters.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: She has bright pink hair that matches her eyes.
* DrowningMySorrows: Amari appears to be doing this in Episode 6. As she muses over her failure to find anyone weaker than her on the third floor, and her self-admittedly meager reasons to compete in the Holy Grail War, she's seen lying on a bed, surrounded by several empty bottles, and she gulps down a full wineglass during the scene.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Due to the circumstances around her birth, Misao wants to win the Grail as a "screw you" to those who saw her as nothing more than a DesignerBabies, and show the world she has reasons for existing.
* {{Irony}}: Her goal was to find the weakest Master and beat them, only for her to realize ''she'' was the weakest Master she could find. The irony is not lost on her.
* ProperTightsWithASkirt: She wears white pantyhose with her school uniform.
* SuperBreedingProgram: By her own admission she was the result of one. Her mother was not able to make it far enough in her plans, so she conceived Misao as a way to solidify her power. Misao is not happy about it one bit.
* TheUnfettered: She declares she will throw away everything and sacrifice as many lives as necessary to win the Holy Grail War.
* UnfortunateNames: She had been mocked in the past because "Amari" means "scraps" in Japanese.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: Her fate is left completely vague by the end of episode 7, and the closest thing the audience is given is the implication she might have been beaten by Rin. Still, by the time the group moves on to the next floor, her status is not mentioned]].

!!Playable Servants

!!!Voiced by: Creator/SakuraTange

One of three Servants available to the Protagonist. Saber is [[{{Expy}} near-identical in appearance]] to the Saber of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''; however, this Saber is vain, self-glorifying and pompous, with a love for the theatrical. Despite this, she genuinely cares for the Protagonist in her own way, and strives to embrace the beauty in all things.
* AbsoluteCleavage: In CCC promotion artwork along with BB and CCC Type-Moon Virgin White Box.
* AccentAdaptation: Averted; Saber speaks with an accent common to Japanese nobles during Imperial Japan, however, her dialogue is translated into normal English.
%%* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove
* AntiquatedLinguistics: Speaks in an old-fashioned manner, and uses the masculine and archaic "yo" to refer to herself.
* AttentionWhore: Absolutely adores it. She just wants to be loved by everyone like she loves everyone else. There is a reason her nickname is [[spoiler:"The Whore of Babylon"]].
* BarelyThereSwimwear: An unlockable outfit in CCC.
* BiTheWay: Whatever her faults, her clear bisexuality is not considered one of them. She tries to love people for who they are, not what gender they are.
-->''"I love both men and women. I love all humans, without regard to their gender."''
** Though this line implies she ''might'' like girls more:
-->''"Beautiful boys are nice. Beautiful girls are even better!"''
* {{Bokukko}}: In her case, she uses the masculine and archaic first-person pronoun "yo".
* CallBack: She said she wouldn't mind if she was called [[spoiler: "The Whore of Babylon"]] because of her historical reputation, as long as the main character likes her... guess what she gets called during the the 7th week? Granted, it's someone else calling her that.
* CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest: Saber is not ashamed of her sexuality, but simply feels the protagonist is too innocent to do anything to. This doesn't stop her from loving them.
* ChainedByFashion: Her CCC "Virgin Bride" costume has chains around her neck and wrist.
* ChaoticGood: InUniverse alignment. You'd probably expect an emperor to have a more lawful alignment, but it seems not.
%%* ChivalrousPervert
%%* CleavageWindow
* CoolSword: Aestus Estus: The Embryonic Flame. It's easily [[{{BFS}} bigger than both protagonists.]]
* CrazyEnoughToWork: Her Imperial Privilege works like this: if I think I can do that, then I can! She becomes a Saber because of this, her class' base stats be damned. She is also capable of [[spoiler:summoning her Golden Theatre in the manner of a Reality Marble, granting herself ''Divinity'', and even summoning [[Literature/BookOfRevelation the Beast from the Book of Revelation]] as a ''riding mount'' due to her moniker as the "Whore of Babylon"]].
* DeusExMachina: [[ConversationalTroping Conversed]] during a private room chat in Week 4. She says her favorite play ended with one for everyone to have happy endings, which the protagonist calls "cheating."
--> ''While it is a staple of theater, I do not like it much.''
* DiggingYourselfDeeper: When Archer makes a small quip about Saber's devotion to her Master, she blows up and starts defending herself from perceived accusations of liking Hakuno. This is so at odds with what he was actually saying that a nonplussed Archer can merely respond with "...'Kay." It wasn't so much digging herself deeper as digging the hole entirely by herself.
* DrivenToSuicide: In her first lifetime. She stopped herself many times, as she felt that she had done nothing wrong and that she was punishing the public by having "such a magnificent artist disappear from this world", before finally stabbing her own throat with a knife.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Back when she was alive, she once publicly fought a lion and killed it with her bare hands as a reenactment of Heracles vs the Nemean Lion. Nobody was impressed.
* DumpStat: Luck and Magic, especially since one of her skills limits her ability to use magic even further. Agility is of questionable worth, but it's not unreasonable to put some points into it to stabilize her damage range.
* TheEmperor: Since Saber is almost as bad about hiding her identity as Caster, she makes it clear early on that she was a Roman Emperor with a poor reputation but with a generally positive reception from the people.
* EvilMatriarch: Her mother was this in her backstory.
* {{Expy}}: Looks pretty much identical to ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight's'' Saber, but with a red dress with a different design, a different sword, bigger breasts, and even shorter in height. Personality-wise, she resembles a mix between Saber and Gilgamesh, with the former's compassion, and the latter's ego.
* FriendlyRival: With Lancer [[spoiler:Elizabeth]] because of their similar temperament, hobbies, and utter blindness that they suck at said hobbies.
* GenderFlip: Her true identity is [[spoiler:Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, 5th Emperor of the Roman Empire. She was notorious for being a [[TheCaligula hated tyrant who lavished in excessive wealth and ruthlessly oppressed Christianity]], but in the {{Franchise/Nasuverse}} she was a kindhearted individual who loved everything in the world but demanded to be loved in kind, not realising that her love was selfish and could not be reciprocated. She fell into despair when her people did not rise to defend her against a coup d'etat, and committed suicide]].
%%* GiantPoofySleeves
* GiftedlyBad: Saber adores the arts and considers herself to be a creative savant on par with Apollo, god of the arts. Unfortunately, all signs indicates that her talents were sub-par at best, even before she began to suffer migraines. Her egotism in this field can be best illustrated by the fact that she [[spoiler:built a personal theatre devoted specifically to her own performances, and when people started to leave in the middle of her first recital, she ordered the exits sealed.]] At one point she enthusiastically tells the protagonist about a play she wrote, and the plot is...[[StylisticSuck not very good]].
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: In the Fate/Extra universe, her reputation is similar to her real life counterpart, but it's noted that it's not exactly deserved, which makes her an InUniverse example.
* HotBlooded: If it's something that she's passionate of, then she will ''be'' passionate. Her art, her people's wellbeing, and her Master are things that usually give out this reaction. There's also her new skill in [=CCC=], Rose of Closure that Wins the Star;
--> *wall of fire explodes behind her* "My dear Praetor, I love you!"
%%* IdiotHair
* InSeriesNickname: [[spoiler: "The Whore of Babylon"]] is a figure in [[Literature/TheBible The Book of Revelations.]] Many scholars attribute it to [[spoiler: Rome under the reign of Emperor Nero; since Christianity was persecuted. This was downgraded to "discouraged religion" in the {{Franchise/Nasuverse}}, but since Nero's a [[GenderFlip woman]] here, it now refers to ''her.'']]
* InstantExpert: One of her skills allows her to temporarily become this for one other skill. Her Noble Phantasm is even more powerful, as it allows her to become one for multiple skills for as long as it's active.
* InterruptedIntimacy: [[spoiler:Her second Secret Garden event]]. You can thank Rin's phonecall for that.
* ImageSong: [[ GRAND]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: Though she does care about your well-being and can be pretty compassionate. Otherwise, she almost rivals [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Gilgamesh]].
%%* KickingAssInAllHerFinery
* LargeHam: Its implied that this was how her people viewed her acting in her past life. She breaks out the ham occasionally during the War as well.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Saber, Everything is in Her Hand."
* LeotardOfPower: While at first her outfit looks as though she's giving the audience a perpetual PantyShot, it's not actually her panties we're seeing, but [[ a leotard]] that she wears under her dress.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: In spite of her slender build and D Rank Strength, she is incredibly powerful. Even when she was an ordinary human, she could wrestle and choke a lion to death with her bare hands.
* TheNapoleon: She dislikes being reminded of her height, especially if called little or petite.
%%* OverlyLongName: Her real name.
%%* PimpedOutDress
* {{Pride}}: She rivals ''Gilgamesh'' for the title of "biggest ego in the Nasuverse". It helps that in her case, she doesn't really seem to understand sarcasm and often manages to twist insults into praise for herself.
* RedOniBlueOni: Saber plays this role with Caster in the Omake that show up in the Type-Moon Ace magazine. In a meta sense, she's also the vain, selfish, exuberant red oni to the original Saber's stoic and self-abasing blue oni.
* SarcasmBlind: A lot of Archer's taunts bounce right off Saber since, as he notes, she has a tendency to read the situation at face value.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Unlike ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'''s Saber, who simply doesn't care if anyone happens to see her naked, this Saber isn't afraid to show some skin because she likes the attention. She [[{{Lampshaded}} lampshades]] this in ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm'':
--> '''Taiga''': Um, your dress is see-through...\\
'''Saber''': Fool. It's not see-through, I'm ''letting'' people see. Plus, it's cool and breezy...\\
'''Taiga''': Your rear is half-exposed too!\\
'''Saber''': Save the ogling of me for later!
* SomethingAboutARose: They pop out during some of her skills and when she activates her Noble Phantasm.
* {{Stripperiffic}}:
** Her outfit does cover most of her, but it has a CleavageWindow and part of her skirt is transparent, showing her LeotardOfPower (which many players initially thought was a PantyShot).
** It is, however, rather revealing from the back, making this almost a case of SexyBacklessOutfit - almost her entire back is on display above the hips barring the back of the collar and a metal clasp in the small of her back. The back of the skirt actually starts low enough to show off some of the other kind of cleavage.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Saber is not going to be giddy over your coming through for her in week five, [[{{Tsundere}} not at all.]]
%%* {{Tsundere}}
* VerbalTic: Her characteristic "hmm!" sound (sometimes written as [[SpellMyNameWithAnS "umu!"]]) that she often make at the front of her sentences.
* WalkingSwimsuitScene: Saber does not like the heat in the 5th week Arena (which is a jungle), and expresses the desire to do this should the Item Shop sell bathing suits. In the sequel game, [[ you can unlock a skimpy red swimsuit for her to wear.]]
* WholesomeCrossdresser: While referring to the original Saber in passing, she remarks that in life she would also crossdress. However, this wasn't done in order to hide her gender, but rather because she simply liked it more and felt that gender was largely irrelevant.

[[folder:Archer (Nameless)]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/JunichiSuwabe

One of three Servants available to the protagonist. Archer originally appeared in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' as the Servant of Rin Tohsaka.
* AbnormalAmmo: His bow shoots various {{Oddly Shaped Sword}}s as arrows.
* AbsoluteCleavage: His CCC new costume.
* AlternateSelf: He is an alternate version of Archer from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.
* AntiHero:
** Defines himself in this manner, noting that he has [[WouldHurtAChild killed children]] and ''innocent'' people in order to protect his ideal.
** In fact, his methods were ultimately what ended his life -- his best friend, concerned that he was on the path towards becoming a KnightTemplar and likely couldn't be persuaded otherwise, turned him in to the police for the various crimes he committed in the name of justice, and he plead guilty to all charges. [[{{Irony}} In the end, the human court system was what sealed his fate, not a glorious heroic death in battle.]]
* BeyondTheImpossible: [[spoiler:Lancer's Gae Bolg bends cause and effect so that it will always pierce the heart, making it impossible to dodge or block it. Yet Archer's Rho Aias can successfully stop it.]]
* {{BFS}}: The skill Caladbolg II/Fake Helix Sword has him firing a magical one. It also automatically inflicts ''Break'' against ''Guard.'' [[UpToEleven Oh, and it's the highest damage skill in the original Extra]], which is why "Caladbolg spam" is the main strategy for boss battles.
* BonusBoss: [[spoiler: The original ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' version of him and Rin can be fought as bosses in CCC.]]
* BornUnlucky: To him, the Luck stat is the DumpStat to end all {{Dump Stat}}s.
* BowAndSwordInAccord: He uses his bow a lot more than his counterpart does.
%%* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
%%* DarkSkinnedBlond
* DiggingYourselfDeeper: The female protagonist has the option of confronting him about his relationship with Rin. He denies any attraction to her, which is fine, but then follows it up by saying her figure isn't really what he considers his type either, apparently alluding to her rather flat and thin figure. The way he does this indicates attraction to the ''protagonist's'' body type, at which point he realizes he's falling directly into this and shuts up immediately.
* DualWielding: Kanshou and Bakuya, just like in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* DumpStat: Just like his ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' counterpart, it's [[LuckStat Luck]]. Magic ''[[SubvertedTrope seems]]'' like this at first, as his physical attacks are often much stronger. However, the skill Caladbolg II's damage is boosted by the Magic stat and combined with the amplification from his Noble Phantasm, it can become enough to easily dispose of late game bosses (including the BonusBoss) if Archer's magic stat is sufficiently high enough.
** Not only does Archer [[LampshadeHanging lampshade just how bad his luck is]] during one conversation, Luck isn't just ''his'' slowest growing stat -- ''Archer's Luck is so bad it has the slowest growth rate of any stat for all playable Servants''.
** Luck is really his only true DumpStat, as each stat applies a damage boost to skills, which increases by rank (so a minor boost at D, a significant one at B, etc.).
* FieldOfBlades: [[spoiler: Unlimited Blade Works.]]
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: His Noble Phantasm is stated to reduce his Projection magic's MP cost to 0, but in gameplay boosts his skill damage and debuff rate instead.
* HasAType: He admits he's got a thing for strong-willed women.
* HeroicSacrifice: Unlike ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', the player can learn what exactly motivated him to make his contract to become a Counter Guardian. [[spoiler: The details may not be 100% clear, but it involved a nuclear reactor in the middle of melting down and having to run a very long way very fast, using up all his magic just to get there, and finding himself unable to stop it on his own.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: He refuses to acknowledge that his antiheroic actions were actually appreciated by some people and did save lives.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With the male protagonist.
* HiddenDepths: He knows a surprising amount about vampires, which he reveals if you talk to him on the 4th week.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's rude and prone to snarking at the protagonist's expense, but he really is trying to help them out and his compliments tend to be sincere.
--> '''Protagonist''': ''My Servant may be pessimistic, cynical, and bitterly sarcastic, but at his core, he is a good person.''
* KnightInSourArmor: He shows compassion for the MC throughout the war but he doesn't fully grow out of this until the final week.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Archer, Nobody Knows Him/The Hero" (A remix of "Emiya" from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'').
* LighterAndSofter: Than his original portrayal in that [[spoiler:he found peace in his ideal and fate as a nameless hero and a Counter Guardian thanks to his character development in the story.]]
* MythologyGag: He's one huge repository of these. [[spoiler: He compares Shinji and Kotomine to their ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' counterparts, refers to encountering an invisible sword wielded by "her", and he even compares Alice to Ilya.]]
* PrinciplesZealot: What he believes himself to be during life, the principle in question being justice.
* {{Retcon}}: It is stated in side materials that it is impossible for Fate/Stay Night Archer to replicate Excalibur with projection. In ''CCC'', it was added as one of Archer's skills, and now you can potentially ''spam'' Excalibur Image with few ill effects (minus giant MP loss, of course). The only explanation is a handwave about the quality of wrought iron being higher in the Moon Cell. Said handwave was conceived because the development team had made the animation before consulting Nasu about it.
%%* TheSnarkKnight
%%* SarcasticDevotee
* SpontaneousWeaponCreation: He projects all of his weapons whenever he needs them.
* SurvivorGuilt: The E-rank Matrix Event has Archer saying this word for word, and the protagonist musing this is why Archer's original self needed to be a selfless hero so much.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Archer throws Kanshou and Bakuya at the enemy when using the Wing of the Crane Skill, just like in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.
* TrueNeutral: InUniverse alignment, same as his FSN counterpart. Likely a result of him being a Counter Guardian, as the job description is to ensure mankind's and the world's continued survival by trying to keep the balance between the two.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Archer can get hit with this trope hard [[spoiler:if you decide to save Rani instead of Rin, which makes Rin your opponent in the 6th week. Archer becomes conflicted as he knew someone [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight very much like Rin]] during his life.]] Bonus points if you know of this ahead of time and do so on purpose.
* VigilanteMan: What he was in life.
%%* WhenHeSmiles
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Downplayed -- not evil, but an AntiHero, and quite sharp-tongued.
* WouldHurtAChild: He notes that he doesn't make a habit of killing kids, but doesn't say that he hasn't done it before. He ''does'' say that he has no problem with killing Alice, though.

!!!Voiced by: Creator/ChiwaSaito

One of three Servants available to the Protagonist. Caster is a playful and mischievous fox girl whose wish is to find someone to whom she can devote herself to entirely, namely the Protagonist. She models herself as a YamatoNadeshiko, but [[BeneathTheMask occasionally lets slip]] hints of a more [[TheTrickster devious]] and [[{{Yandere}} predatory]] personality.
* AmnesiacGod: During her life as a mortal [[spoiler:avatar of Amaterasu]] she was not aware of her true identity.
* AnimeAccentAbsence: Given Caster's age and the time period she came from, you would expect her to have something of an older accent. However, she speaks contemporary Japanese (when she isn't speaking GratuitousEnglish anyway).
* BeneathTheMask: Caster will let slip some [[CuteAndPsycho scary]] comments from time to time. [[spoiler: Such as wondering ''out loud'' whether the cries of her opponent will be as good as the last ones.]]
* BiTheWay: She treats the protagonist like her husband to some extent and is rather flirty. If you point out that [[PurelyAestheticGender you're a girl]], she says that sort of thing doesn't matter to her and then corrects herself by saying she'd be a little more at ease if the protagonist were male. Tohsaka becomes rather leery around her in week five because of of this.
* BonusBoss: [[spoiler: In CCC, she is one as the servant of Twice.]]
* BrokenBird: Caster has one of the saddest backstories in the entire Nasuverse.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: She's quite the meta girl and refers to the T regulations preventing adult content and her own affection points at times.
* CannotKeepASecret: She's trying to keep her identity hidden, but she drops hints about who she is all the time. She almost blurts out her real name several times.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Shortly after rescuing either Rin or Rani, Caster begins practicing a an apparently GroinAttack-based martial art ("Polygamist Castration Fist") while angrily shouting about how "other deities may allow harems, but never will I!" Perhaps fortunately, the protagonist is too innocent to pick up on the obvious implications, and manages to defuse the situation with a few sincere complements about sticking to the fighting style that suits her best.
* CuteAndPsycho: Gives this vibe off at times, especially when she thinks she's being criticized.
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* DumpStat: Like all the Servants, she has essentially no use for luck or Agility and only needs strength for her Spirit Break ability. Even Defence gets little focus, which has some pretty [[GlassCannon obvious consequences]], though.
** She has an amazing growth rate in Magic, good growth rates in Luck and Agility, and godawful ones in Strength and Defence. After her Magic is maxed, it's generally a good idea to throw points into Defence to help her survive and lessen her damage from ''physical'' attacks, as well as to take advantage of the damage boost a higher Defence stat grants.
* {{Expy}}: Of Kohaku from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', more specifically, her Magical Amber persona. To a lesser extent, she's also this for the Caster from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', a mythological BlackWidow who is in fact very loving towards her husband.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: A conversation while walking around the Arena on the first week has her saying that she feels nostalgic. [[spoiler: The last time she was there was as [[BigBad Twice]]'s Servant.]]
* GagBoobs: They're so huge in ''CCC'' that her costume looks like it's hanging on for dear life just holding them in.
%%* GenkiGirl
* GlassCannon: She can deal huge amounts of damage with her skills, but can't take much. You can make it outright impossible to advance past Karna in CCC if you don´t get enough Endurance, as he will one-shot you with [[FantasticNuke Vasavi Shakti]]. Her Mantra: Aphotic Cave skill helps, as it cuts damage from skills by 90% and restores MP. She also takes almost no damage from Magic skills, assuming her own Magic stat is high; it's mostly physical skills that will result in an instant game over if you don't see them coming.
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: Her Origin outfit [[spoiler:identical to Amaterasu]] is this. Her other name taken from her more bestial form is Kojinki-Hakumen (Golden Fur, White Face).
* GoneHorriblyRight: [[spoiler:Her Servant Ending in CCC in the nutshell. In her attempt to save her Master from Moon Cell's deletion, she called up her full-powered nine tails form. Each tail gained sentience and became Alter Egos Tamamo 9, each wanting some of their Goshujin-sama. Caster, [[ClingyJealousGirl as expected]], cast the other eight to the Far Side, which they succeed in escaping, and they're now rampaging around the world looking for the traitorous original and the protagonist.]]
* GratuitousEnglish: This is taken to the point where Aksys actually translates one of her English lines ''into Japanese.''
* GroinAttack: Her ultimate attack skills in Fate/Extra CCC, deal critical damage against male enemy.
* HypocriticalHumor: She gets slightly freaked out, [[spoiler: but is also a little happy,]] when you tell her race doesn't matter, cute is cute.
* IAmWho: During her life as a mortal, she was unaware of her identity as a fox spirit until one day she woke up with fox ears.
* ImageSong: [[ Hana arashi no Ki]]
%%* ImpossiblyLowNeckline
* ImprobableWeaponUser: She wields a MagicMirror in melee.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: [[spoiler: This is the reason Tamamo left her Celestial dwelling and ventured out into the world. She saw how happy serving her made the people and wanted to experience the same thing.]]
* IHatePastMe: [[spoiler: One of the bonus bosses of CCC is Caster when she was Twice's Servant. If you also have Caster as your Servant, it quickly shows that the two don't get along even though they're technically the same person.]]
* {{Keigo}}: Caster can say some [[DoubleEntendre pretty raunchy things]] from time to time, but she always says it ''politely''.
* {{Kitsune}}: She has the ears and tail of a fox, and her true identity is that of [[spoiler:[[ Tamamo-no-Mae]], the nine-tailed fox spirit who won the favour of Emperor Toba as a beautiful and knowledgeable courtesan in 12th century Japan.]]
* KungFuWizard: Aside from some jokes about her infamous "Polygamist Castration Fist," averted in the original game, though CCC adds it in as an actual attack.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Caster, Extra Life With Anyone She Wants", which has samples from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'''s gallery menu BGM (Oh, and said gallery menu is named [[IncrediblyLamePun Extras]]).
* LittleBitBeastly: She has fox ears and a fox tail.
* LittleMissAlmighty: [[spoiler:As a facet of Amaterasu, the Japanese Sun goddess, it fits.]]
* MagicMirror: Her melee weapon of choice.
* MagikarpPower: Starts out as the weakest Servant, but can deal astounding amounts of damage late in the game, completely lock down almost any move the opponent makes or counter anything your opponent does. However, the way she does this makes her incredibly vulnerable to opponents such as Rani's Berserker, who has skills that check against Tamamo's defense stat instead of magic and are preceded by 'Wait' moves, which keeps Caster from preventing them with stun. She also has the lowest HP of all playable Servants, to the point where she won't break 1000 HP until level 20, which means her margin for error against enemy programs (let alone bosses) is very limited.
* MediumAwareness: Unfortunately, she knows that she is in a game only rated "T".
* MesACrowd: [[spoiler: Uses the Moon Cell to summon her other 8 Tails as servants so they can save their master in her CCC Servant ending.]]
* MsFanservice: Her [[ Fate/Extra CCC]] outfit leaves little doubt to this claim.
* MythologyGag: Whether she is talking about her E-mail buddy [[ Kiyohime]] or asking for Aburaage (which is the Bakitsune equivalent of catnip), Caster is full of them.
* NeutralEvil: InUniverse alignment. Unlike the more questionable alignments of the other two playable Servants, this one is pretty obvious so long as you pay attention to the hints of obsession and craziness.
* NotQuiteTheRightThing: In her backstory, she became intrigued with humans since she isn't quite one herself and decided to try living among them and serving them. However, [[spoiler:humans don't want that from the gods. Despite being harmless, she was hunted down when her identity was uncovered and despite asking to simply be allowed to leave in peace armies kept pursuing her, which she destroyed before finally falling in battle. Not a very good track record there, Amaterasu.]]
* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:Twice's Caster acts much more serious than your Caster even though they have the same identity...until you defeat them, in which after Twice declares they must leave and does so himself, his Caster drops completely down the maturity scale.]]
* PantyShot: Thanks to the [[MaleGaze camera angles]]. [[spoiler:They're black.]]
* PaperTalisman: Her ''Curse:'' Skills have her throw one at her enemy.
* PowerLimiter:
** Being summoned as a Legendary Soul actually ''decreases'' her power, since [[spoiler:as a facet of Amaterasu, her full power would be on par with, ''[[UpToEleven if not greater than]]'' the Big Three of the {{Franchise/Nasuverse}}.]] Being summoned as the Servant of a pure-hearted Master means she doesn't have access to her darker powers either. The in-game text states that if she were not a Servant, her Noble Phantasm would actually allow her to ''bring the dead back to life.''
** She seems even weaker than regular Servants, which she {{Handwave}}s as a result of being summoned in the Caster class, universally considered the weakest of the seven Servant classes. [[spoiler:The truth is that Caster is deliberately holding back her own power because the last time she used her seduction magic, she got betrayed and slaughtered by 80,000 soldiers]].
* PowerPerversionPotential: If playing as female Hakuno and you ask whether Caster has any issues with that given her open lust for her Master, she'll say "Eh, I'd prefer if you were a guy, but if it becomes a problem I can always just use magic to make things better!". This isn't unusual, as canonically, Merlin did something like that for Artoria.
* ProfessionalButtKisser: As a Servant, she changes her temperament to suit her current Master. Her actual personality is more in line with a nagging, stingy housewife.
* RedOniBlueOni: Caster plays this role with Saber in the Omake that show up in the Type-Moon Ace magazine.
* RoseHairedSweetie: The protagonists even lampshade this when they realize they could have guessed her personality from her hair.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: Her relationship with her Master is this. When the protagonist mostly has existential crisis over the slaughter that is Holy Grail War, she keeps up the cheerful front to keep their spirits up, encouraging them with not-so-subtle flirting. [[spoiler:From the bonus boss fight against her when she's still Twice's Servant, though she's more solemn than her present self, Twice thinks that she's sacrificing her own happiness and original personality too much to support his gloomy self.]]
* SayItWithHearts: Notably, she's the only one to do this in the whole game.
%%* SexyBacklessOutfit
* {{Sizeshifter}}: [[spoiler: Full powered Caster is ''much'' larger than mortals.]]
%%* {{Stripperiffic}}
%%* SupernaturalGoldEyes
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: It is said that if she is summoned by someone with an evil heart, she will [[spoiler: kill one hundred heroes and become one of the three great disasters of Japan.]]
* TheTease: She's foxy in one way or another. After all, teasing one's husband is a wife's duty, too.
* ThirdPersonPerson: She stops herself from doing it earlier on, but after you learn her true name, she does this all the time in the private room.
* {{Tsundere}}: During some of her Servant Matrix events, especially when it involves other girls like Rin.
* UselessUsefulSpell: Zig-zagged throughout the game:
** Played straight when you first acquire her various ''Curse'' skills, they seem like the perfect way to speed up dungeon crawling... except that Caster will quickly run out of MP. Unless you're playing on Easy mode (which gives you access to fountains that restore both a Master and Servant's HP and MP), you'll quickly run out of MP and facing the problem of MagicIsRareHealthIsCheap. Even if you're on a New Game Plus and have access to the Formal Wear that allows you to restore a Servant's MP, the only MP-restoring items available until the sixth day of the third week restore a Master's MP by a whopping ''two'' and ''three'' MP per item. It costs 60 MP to restore a "moderate" amount of your Servsnt's MP via Code Cast... enjoy those 20 Yakisoba Breads.
** Charm: Spirit Theft allows Caster to steal MP whenever using the ''Break'' command, but it also costs 20 MP per use, so she needs to absorb ''at least'' 20 MP for the skill to be profitable... and then not die in the process. Go ahead, spam ''Break'' so Caster can fill up her MP. With her [[LampshadeHanging notably poor defence and HP]], what's the worst that could happen? It's not a bad option, but maximizing the MP gain from the skill typically means dragging out a fight as long as possible versus an enemy program, which makes the already tedious LevelGrinding even more so, particularly since Caster's melee damage is low and her ''Curse'' skills are the best way for her to deal with mooks.
** Subverted once you've earned enough skill points to unlock Breath of the Soul, a passive skill that automatically restores 10% of Caster's maximum MP after a battle. Coincidentally, by the time you have the points to unlock the skill, Caster will have at least 300 MP, meaning her ''Curse'' skills are now free: at 30 MP each, she can use one against enemy programs while dungeon crawling and will have the MP restored after the battle. Hallelujah! (And since her MP growth is so high, as Caster continues to level up, she can easily restore 40+ MP via her passive.)
** Arguably played completely straight with her final skill, however, which costs 80 MP, deal's heavy damage , and has a chance to inflict Poison for ''six turns''. Unfortunately, it can only be used when Caster's HP is at 30 percent or lower (which is the point at which her HP bar begins flashing red) and it's [[SquishyWizard very difficult to lower Caster's HP to that point without bypassing the red zone for a Game Over]]. Since most players typically use an item or Code Cast to Heal during turns when it's likely their Servant will take heavy damage, this makes achieving the requisite low health even more of a gamble: you not only need Caster's HP to be lowered, but you also have to be certain it won't actually hit zero at the end of the turn, deliberately forgoing healing just so you have the option of using Land of Eternal Bane ... or you could follow the standard plan of stun-locking bosses and enemies, which is where Caster excels. It doesn't help that a translation error states that the skill requires Caster's HP to be ''above'' 30%, leading many players to cast the skill at full health and then helplessly watch as Caster did nothing, the word "FAILED" appeared, and the boss attacked.
* VocalDissonance: The perky GenkiGirl falsetto quickly drops to much crasser husky depths whenever she gets peeved.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: [[spoiler:Tamamo actually fought in a previous Holy Grail War, her master then was ''[[BigBad Twice H. Pieceman]]''.]]
* WillfullyWeak: Refuses to make use of her witchcraft or shapeshifting abilities, which are ranked EX and A respectively. You'd think she would at least agree to shapeshift enough to hide the ears and tail.
* WorthyOpponent: She has a tendency to trash talk all your opponents, but she has to admit that Dan Blackmore is a pretty good guy. Normally, she'd also find Arcueid a worthy opponent since they're so similar, but she's stuck in the role of Berserker.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Downplayed. Caster carries herself in this manner and her desire to be a good wife is as [[HiddenDepths genuine]] as it gets. She can also [[BeneathTheMask be pretty scary at times]] showing she is not an ExtremeDoormat but instead possessing a will of her own. However she has a pretty [[DoubleEntendre dirty mouth]] and yet it's always so ''politely'' dirty.

!!Enemy Servants

!!!Master: Shinji Matou | Voiced by: Creator/UraraTakano

A [[TheHedonist hedonistic]] woman who lives entirely for the moment and finds value only in ephemeral aspects of life, making her incompatible with Heroic Spirits like Caster and [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Gilgamesh]] (who stockpiles the treasures he gains). As a {{pirate}}, she favours using pistols in combat.
%%* AbsoluteCleavage
* AffablyEvil: Nicer than her Master is. [[JerkAss Not that that's a hard thing to do.]]
* BadassBoast: When using her [[LimitBreak Noble Phantasm]].
--> ''"Remember my name by the death from my passing! [[spoiler: [[GratuitousSpanish Temeroso el Draque!]] I am the woman who set the sun!]] You rascals, it's time! The king of storms, a swarm of ghosts, this is the beginning of the [[spoiler: Wild Hunt]]!"''
* BerserkButton: Fate/EXTRA material mentions that she can get truly angry if you were to call [[spoiler:Golden Hind by its original name, "Pelican".]]
%%* BoobsOfSteel
* CardCarryingVillain: Well, she doesn't actually do anything villainous, but she calls her Master and herself villains.
* CoolBigSis: She acts like this at times to her Master.
* CoolBoat: [[spoiler: The Golden Hind.]]
* EvilIsHammy: Thinks that villains should act as flamboyantly as possible. Since she considers herself one...
%%* FaceDeathWithDignity
* GenderFlip:
** [[spoiler:Although the game makes it clear that this is not an example of a female being recorded into history as male--like Red Saber--but simply how she has been incarnated into the Holy Grail War]].
** [[spoiler:There's also a possible subversion of this, since the Japanese version of the game hints that she's not actually Francis Drake, but Queen Elizabeth in disguise.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has one across her face.
* GunsAkimbo: A pair of flintlock pistols that she [[BottomlessMagazines never has to reload]].
%%* GunFu
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: While she never drinks onscreen, she's a pirate, and her Master complains at one point that she stinks of alcohol.
%%* TheHedonist
%%* IdiotHair
%%* TheLadette
* LuckStat: Notable in that hers is [[ReadingsAreOffTheScale EX-Rank]].
* MoreDakka: [[spoiler: Her Noble Phantasm summons her ship, the Golden Hind, as well as her armada, which bombards the target with cannons.]]
* MythologyGag: [[spoiler: Shinji's Servant being a Rider class, and the first to be defeated.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Both she and the playable Saber wish to enjoy life and all its pleasures to the fullest, though their methods vary. Both also threaten each other with ropes (trussing up and hanging, respectively).
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Well, her role as a Servant and her apparent ability to get along well with her Master might play a role, but she does demand a lot of money to fight and in an early quest, [[spoiler: she gets a power boost unless you can prevent her from reaching several treasures]].
%%* {{Privateer}}
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: [[spoiler: Possibly, as it's hinted that she may be Queen Elizabeth in disguise in the Japanese version.]]
%%* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!!Master: Dan Blackmore | Voiced by: Creator/KosukeToriumi

A chivalrous outlaw thief who relies on guerrilla tactics such as [[CombatPragmatist preemptive strikes, traps and poison]]. Though he bitterly complains that he is unable to win in a fair fight, it is hinted that his true desire is to leave the shadows of the forest and be acknowledged and thanked as a hero.

* AdaptationalBadass: Due to his master becoming [[AdaptationalVillainy more villainous]] in the anime, Archer is much more fearsome and dangerous compared to the game. This is of course due to not being forced to have a PowerLimiter placed on him by his Master, allowing him to fight at full power.
* ArcherArchetype: He is an Archer class Servant, and he's pretty much the first one seen to rely on his bow. He's also pretty independent, as shown by [[spoiler: his ambush of the protagonist on campus]], which was not ordered by his Master.
* CombatPragmatist: Traps, ambushes, poisons -- if it helps him win, he'll do it. [[spoiler:Though he's always wanted to fight fairly at least once in his life.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: It seems to be a requirement of the Archer class.
* {{Expy}}: His backstory, [[spoiler:specifically selflessly protecting everyone around him and ultimately being betrayed by them]] is very similar to [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight another Archer's]] and his role as a LegacyCharacter who has his own identity forgotten is very similar to [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Assassin's]].
%%* FaceDeathWithDignity
* HeroWithBadPublicity: In his backstory.
* JustLikeRobinHood: [[spoiler:As expected, as he is the man himself.]] Archer gave BB’s SG after barely surviving Meltlilith’s encounter so the protagonist will have an advantage against the overly powerful BB.
* LegacyCharacter: One of many who had the identity.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: [[spoiler: During his life he fought for the people of his village, whom rewarded him with betrayal after betrayal. Despite all this, he still fought for them, as it was the right thing to do.]] It sucks being an Archer in the {{Franchise/Nasuverse}}.
* OutOfCharacterAlert: He’s usually very laidback, so when he goes as far as being verbally and physically abusive to Passionlip, it tips everyone off to just what’s wrong with the Alter Ego as previously Alice and Caster also bullied her too cruelly for their standards.
%%* PeekABangs
%%* PoisonedWeapons
* PowerLimiter: [[spoiler: Due to his under-handed tactics, his stats got decreased [[NoFairCheating due to his breaking of the rules]]. Due to his Master's HonorBeforeReason and the rules of this Grail War, he is forced into a one-vs-one duel rather than his preferred [[CombatPragmatist fighting style]]. As a result, he never stood a chance and we never got to see Archer's full power. However, in the anime, due to the rules of the war having been completely changed and Dan becoming more pragmatic and more of a villain, he uses his abilities in full.]]

!!!Master: Alice | Voiced by: Creator/AiNonaka

An irregular Servant who bears an appearance identical to her Master's. This is because she is not a specific individual with their own identity, but a manifestation of the love of children towards the nursery rhyme genre, effectively making them a "hero of children". The Servant itself is a kind of pseudo-Reality Marble that reflects the true feelings of the one who summons it, creating a Servant in the image that their Master imagines.

* AliceAllusion: For the same reasons as her Master.
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: [[spoiler:Her true identity is Nursery Rhyme, a personification of children's stories such as ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland''.]]
%%* CreepyChild
* CreepyTwins: Pulls off the act with her Master.
%%* DarkMagicalGirl
* DegradedBoss: In ''CCC'', she is faced as a random encounter in [[spoiler:Meltlilith's dungeon]] later on in the game.
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Last Encore'', she only appears once in the series due to the fact that [[spoiler:Alice's transformation stripped her of her human form, leaving her as a nondescript book trying to help Alice with her Noble Phantasms.]]
* DissonantSerenity: She talks about IronicNurseryTune with the same cheerfulness as when she’s playing with her Master, but it’s nothing like when [[spoiler:Meltlilith tore her apart and sent her Master comatose]]; she uses non-threatening phrases like “Welcome,” or “Let’s play,” while engaging in battle, laughs when damaged by skills, and mutters “Sweet dreams" when defeated. As there’s a lot of her in that floor, the best way to describe her predicament is a BrokenRecord.
* ElegantGothicLolita: She wears black and pink in contrast to her Master.
* EmpathicShapeshifter: [[spoiler:Caster changes form depending on the Master who summoned her.]]
* LossOfIdentity: [[spoiler:Caster's Reality Marble, the Nameless Forest, causes people to forget their names, their sense of self and then, [[RetGone that they ever existed]].]]
* MesACrowd: In ''CCC'', [[spoiler:until you do Alice’s last will]], her countless [[spoiler:ghost]] copies replace every enemy program on the floor.
* MysticalWhiteHair: Appropriately enough for a Caster-class servant.
* NurseryRhyme: All her Matrix entries except two are done in nursery rhyme. She also utters a few of her own creation.
* OffWithHisHead: She talks about doing this four times (including optional scenes), all in relation to you and[=/=]or your Servant. Two of those times, she quotes the trope-naming line.
* OneSteveLimit: Caster is based on ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', which gives us such gems as ''"That's Alice, and I'm Alice."'' and ''"I am Alice, the Servant of Alice."'' RainbowSpeak is an early indicator that the two are different.
* TimeLimitBoss:
** Not a clock-based time limit, but if the battle drags on, Caster will use her Noble Phantasm, which not only damages you but fully restores her HP, essentially resetting the battle. Oh, and the effect [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard activates between turns]], so there's no way to stop it.
*** In the anime, [[spoiler:this renders Alice undefeatable unless she decides not to activate it.]]
** This particular facet makes her an extreme case of PuzzleBoss: looking into the Phantasm's description [[spoiler:lets you know that she simply repeats the same moves over and over with no deviation between Phantasm casts]].
* WeakButSkilled: Every single one of her stats is [[RankInflation Rank E]]. She balances this out with a plethora of high ranked skills [[spoiler: and a Reality Marble]].

!!!Master: Lanrukun/Lil' Ronnie | Voiced by: Creator/HisaoEgawa

A deranged individual who shares his Master's twisted notions of love. Though he had been noble and dedicated to the cause of protecting his nation in life, he became infamous for his excessively brutal methods, which eventually led to his people turning against him. Dying in despair, he questioned why his sincere efforts had been rewarded by betrayal, and lost his sanity. He's ''not'' a vampire.
%%* AxCrazy
* BerserkButton: The word "monster" if directed at his Master by someone else.
%%* BladeOnAStick
* BlessedWithSuck: See the second bullet point on KnightTemplar.
* BloodIsTheNewBlack: The left side of his armor is permanently covered with blood.
* TheButcher: He was known as the [[spoiler: Kazikli Voyvoda/Impaler Prince]] in life.
* DepravedBisexual: Possibly; see FoeYay in YMMV.
* FangsAreEvil: His canines are visibly long and sharp, like [[spoiler:a vampire's fangs]].
* FieldOfBlades: A field of spears comes out when he uses his Noble Phantasm.
* GracefulLoser: Enough of one that it becomes [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness jarring]] since he's so hammy everywhere else.
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: InUniverse, and it literally changes his appearance and abilities to match the common perception of him, represented on his Matrix as the Seraphic Monstrosity ability.
* HumansAreSpecial: His dying speech makes that certainly clear, where he finally acknowledges Ronnie's monstrous nature but, because she is ultimately human, even after death her soul can be saved and any wrongdoing can be atoned for in Purgatory. Would almost count as a moment of heartwarming if not for Ronnie's insane complaints about Lancer dying and not leaving behind a body to eat.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: He loves it so much, his Ceremonial Purge skill involves doing it to himself. Strangely, it only damages your Servant. [[spoiler: His Noble Phantasm even has the title of Fortress of Impalement.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: He believes all humans are.
-->'''Lancer''': ''"Humans are the monstrous ones. A human who has never betrayed another of their wretched kind isn't human."''
* KnightTemplar:
** He [[spoiler: impaled many of his own country's nobility]] because he felt that they had destabilized [[spoiler: Wallachia.]] He also [[spoiler: impaled thousands of Turkish soldiers as psychological warfare]], all in the name of protecting [[spoiler: the Christian kingdoms from the Ottomans]].
** One of his abilities is the Divine Aegis, which is ostensibly a form of divine protection given to those who have sacrificed themselves for something they believe to be the greater good, but is actually a manifestation of faith and self-righteousness. [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity Higher ranks of this skill have detrimental effects on a person's sanity and personality.]] Lancer [[BlessedWithSuck has it at]] ''[[RankInflation A+++ Rank]]''.
%%* LargeHam
%%* NoIndoorVoice
* MightyGlacier: His Strength is ranked A, but his Agility is ranked E. An unusual case, seeing as Lancer class Servants are usually {{Fragile Speedster}}s.
* MythologyGag: [[spoiler:It was established in ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood'' that Vlad Tepes wasn't a vampire.]]
* NotSoDifferent: He has something in common with all the playable Servants. [[spoiler: Like Saber, he was the victim of HistoricalVillainUpgrade. Like Archer, he was betrayed by those he protected because of his crazy devotion to an ideal. Like Caster, he was so strongly believed to be a monster by people that he actually became one.]]
%%* RedEyesTakeWarning
* ReligiousBruiser: He's very devout, both in life and during the Holy Grail War.
* TragicMonster: The protagonist believes so, anyway.

* UnholyMatrimony: With his Master. You can tell, because she [[ItMakesSenseInContext wants to eat him as he fades away]].

[[folder:Berserker (Arcueid Brunestud)]]
!!!Master: Monji Gatou | Voiced by: Creator/RyokaYuzuki

Supposedly a blood-sucking demon who is worshipped as a god by her Master, she is in fact a True Ancestor, a demon inherently connected to the Earth. Her current state is due to her Master lacking the ability to handle or even comprehend her true form, forcing her into the Berserker class. While the Berserker class increases her raw statistics, it has sealed many of the abilities that would otherwise make her a GameBreaker.

* AlternateSelf: She is an alternate version of Arcueid Brunestud from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}''.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: By having Berserker's passive Mad Enhancement. [[spoiler:After she is defeated and Gatou is deleted (breaking the Master/Servant link), she returns to normal and is quite friendly towards the Protagonist.]]
* ColonyDrop: Her Blut die Schwester conjures an illusion of the Crimson Moon.
* GodGuise: Her Master proclaims her to be a true god. She is more of a natural phenomena, comparable to a tornado or earthquake.
* MismatchedEyes: She has one red iris and one purple iris.
* NoSell: Of course ''the Moon'' doesn't delete her if she loses. [[spoiler:She's a perfect copy of [[EldritchAbomination Type Moon]], after all]].
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: She is the most powerful True Ancestor in existence.
* PowerLimiter: Not only does being a Berserker reduce her overall capabilities, but her Master's incompetence reduces her abilities even further! Even her [[PowerBornOfMadness Mad Enhancement/Blind Rage]] skill has been reduced in effectiveness, giving her all the drawbacks of Rank A but only the benefits of Rank C.
* PowerBornOfMadness: She's a Berserker and trades away sanity for power, but because Gatou is both incompetent and doesn't even understand what Arcueid is she has the effects on her mind of rank A while only getting a level C powerup.
* TheSpeechless: Thanks to Mad Enhancement, she's rendered unable to speak coherently. She's silent in all scenes until the post arena dialogue.
* SkywardScream: Upon using Blut die Schwester, she leans back and lets out a howl.
* WolverineClaws: She can extend her fingers into blood-red talons.

!!!Master: Julius B. Harway | Voiced by: Creator/KunihikoYasui

A Chinese martial artist whose skill in the art of Bājíquán was so advanced that it was said he could slay any opponent with a single blow. Though he is famed as a Lancer, his Master elected to summon a younger version for compatibility, and for his Servant's ferocity and unquestioning impulse to fight during his youth.

* AffablyEvil: He's much nicer than his Master, even if he is trying to kill you. Archer lampshades this at the start of the Elimination Battle.
%%* BareFistedMonk
* BloodKnight: He's very happy to face an enemy that doesn't go down in one hit.
* CardCarryingVillain: He feels that all he can do is destroy, so he embraces it.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: His [[LimitBreak Noble Phantasm]], despite being referred as such in-game, is actually the highest form of his martial art, where [[FingerPokeOfDoom even the slightest touch]] is enough to kill the opponent.
%%* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He comments that, if he killed as often as [[spoiler: his Master]], he wouldn't be able to sleep at night.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: The first time you defeat him. He's been turned into a Berserker the second time, so he doesn't have the state of mind for this.]]
%%* FieryRedhead
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: [[spoiler: After he's brought back as a Berserker.]]
* GuyLiner: Red, matching his eyes and hair.
* {{Invisibility}}: [[spoiler: Due to his personal skill, instead of the Assassin class skill, Presence Concealment.]] In gameplay terms, you can't hurt him at all until you nullify it.
* MythologyGag: This isn't the first time an [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Assassin]] prefers head to head combat, as well as having a Noble Phantasm that is the product of years of training rather than an artifact or magic.
%%* NobleDemon
* OneHitKill: Despite his reputation, [[CutscenePowerToTheMax the only time he gets to do this is in cutscenes]], unless you made your Servant into a GlassCannon. During the battle with him it has an HPToOne effect instead, taking off 90% of your Servant's current HP if it hits.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Red-eyed and ''very'' deadly.
* ScreamingWarrior: [[spoiler: After he's brought back as a Berserker.]]
* SquareRaceRoundClass: While his hand-to-hand combat skills fit the Assassin class container, under normal circumstances he ''shouldn't'' be able to be summoned as the container is normally restricted to the nineteen Hassan-i-Sabbah. As the least combat oriented class, Assassin also should have no business going hand-to-hand against Saber-class Servants, who are considered the ''strongest'' Servants in close combat, and ''winning.''
* TouchOfDeath: His famous quip about not knowing what it's like to hit a man twice is the biggest clue to his identity.
* WeakButSkilled: Makes up for his rather low stats (save for an A Rank AGI) with his unique [[spoiler:Sphere Boundary and Chinese Martial Arts, ranked [[RankInflation A and A+++]] respectively,]] skills.

!!!Master: Rin Tousaka | Voiced by: Creator/NobutoshiCanna

An Irish demigod hero, and {{Expy}} of Lancer from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Much like his counterpart, he's cocky, aggressive and a womanizer.

His Noble Phantasm is the spear Gae Bolg, which instantly pierces the target's heart and then [[RealityWarper reverses cause and effect]] to create a reason for it.
* AmbiguousSituation: In the anime. Rin mentions her Servant was taken but she still possesses Command Seals, implying that she ether did lose him, but in a way where she can retrieve him, or is lying in order to make her way up the floors. [[spoiler:It turns out she [[FusionDance fused with him to become a Demi-Servant]]]].
* BladeOnAStick: [[spoiler: Gae Bolg]].
%%* BloodKnight

%%* DeadpanSnarker
%%* GoOutWithASmile
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: In Rin's route, he delays Rani's self-destruct long enough for the protagonist and Rin to be logged out by the SE.RA.PH, but is gravely wounded and unable to escape the explosion.]]
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: [[spoiler: If you save Rin, he doesn't really have much of a reaction to Rani's Servant taking off "his entire right side" with one hit.]]
* MythologyGag: In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', Lancer says he would have liked [[spoiler: Rin to be his Master.]]
** If you [[spoiler: save Rin]], he [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices]] himself and comments:
-->''"Now, I just need to work on finding ways to defend people without getting myself killed..."''
* OneHitKill: [[spoiler: Gae Bolg]]. As in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', high [[LuckStat Luck]] or Archer's 7 Rings of Heaven skill can stop it.
* PowerLimiter: Lancer's [[{{Determinator}} Battle Continuation]] skill was reduced by his current master in order to raise his endurance.
* TronLines: The main difference between his design here and the one in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.

!!!Master: Rani VIII | Voiced by: Creator/KunihikoYasui

A Chinese military commander infamous for his many betrayals. His military acumen and mastery of weaponry is so great that it would [[TheAce allow him to be summoned as any class within the Holy Grail War]] with the exception of Saber and Caster.

* BladeOnAStick: [[spoiler: Sky Piercer.]]
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: In his backstory, but not in the game itself, since Mad Enhancement denies him the state of mind for it.
%%* FourStarBadass
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler: During his HeroicSacrifice to save Rani and the protagonist.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: In Rani's route, he protects her and the Protagonist from the explosion.]]
* MythologyGag: A famous Berserker-class Servant (who also qualifies for nearly every other class) that can't use his Noble Phantasm to its full potential and his combat skills because of Mad Enhancement, like another [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Berserker]] that we know.
* NiceHat: With two large feathers draped over and behind his head, consistent with depictions of [[spoiler:Lu Bu]].
%%* ScreamingWarrior
* SwissArmyWeapon: His Noble Phantasm has five forms, but due to Mad Enhancement, he can only use [[BladeOnAStick Halberd Force]] and Cannon Force.
* TheUnintelligible: His text boxes contain only gibberish lines instead of legible text.
* UnskilledButStrong: Relies solely on brute strength, but has more than enough of it to spare.

[[folder:Saber (Sir Gawain)]]
!!!Master: Leonard Harway | Voiced by: Creator/TakahiroMizushima

A knight of the Round Table, known as the "Knight of the Sun" and counterpart to King Arthur. Having regretted his decisions in life, in which his personal failings led to the downfall of his king, Gawain hopes to restore his honour by serving Leonard Harway unquestioningly as "the perfect knight".
%%* AssKickingPose
* TheAtoner: After his actions resulted in the [[spoiler: destruction of Arthur's kingdom, the death of most of the knights and his own disgrace]] he wished for a second chance to [[ToBeLawfulOrGood perfectly serve a king without question]].
* ChivalrousPervert: See his reaction to any of Leo’s perverted hijinks and to the Alter Egos. He somehow can spouts most detailed description of women’s erotic features with such a straightforward manner, it’s like he’s telling only truth.
* CoolSword: [[spoiler: Excalibur Galatine, which has a shard of the Sun in it.]] Its name is a reference to [[spoiler: both {{Excalibur}}, which certain early French stories had him wielding, and Galatine, the sword he wields in most other stories.]]
%%* FaceDeathWithDignity
* FlamingSword: When he uses his Blade of Devotion skill.
* HopelessBossFight: If you decide to fight him in CCC. Note that it technically ''is'' winnable, but only if you're either cheating or have some very broken New Game+ outfits equipped.
* HourOfPower: Between 9AM and 12 noon, and 3PM and 6PM, his power increases threefold, represented by the Numeral of the Saint ability. In gameplay terms, you can't damage him at all and must find some way of nullifying this ability or it's game over.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: The way he puts the duty placement between him and your Servant makes him seemingly belittling you. It’s only when both Leo and Julius apologize for his tactless manner he realizes it.
* ItsAllMyFault: Believes his hatred for [[spoiler: Lancelot]] caused [[spoiler:the fall of Camelot.]]
* KnightInShiningArmor
* LethalChef: His cooking is so horrid, Leo forbids him from for touching the kitchenware ever again. It implied that the reason why [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Arthur]] is such a glutton is because she put up with his foods in their Round Table time.
* MythologyGag: His appearance is based on the original design for Saber, before she was changed to a girl. Fitting, considering that in most legends he is referred as Arthur's nephew.
%%* OvershadowedByAwesome: By its more famous counterpart, [[spoiler: {{Excalibur}}.]]
* ThePowerOfTheSun: The Sun empowers him during the day.
* {{Revenge}}: Originally against [[spoiler: Lancelot]]. He eventually forgives [[spoiler: Lancelot before his death.]]
* RuleOfThree: His Numeral of the Saint ability triples his strength during three-hour periods.
* SlapOnTheWristNuke: Excalibur Galatine is supposed to be the equal of Excalibur, which is basically the most powerful directly damaging Noble Phantasm out there not named Ea. It should reduce you to dust, but what it actually does is just sort of hurt. Toss your Servant an Ether Crystal and they'll be good as new.
* ToBeLawfulOrGood: Thinks of his actions in life along these lines, and unlike most examples he resolved to be ''lawful'' and obey his Master without any question whatsoever, in order to repent for his grudges getting in the way of his duty towards the king. Archer and Saber will both call him out for this in different ways - Archer thinks he is LawfulStupid and Saber thinks he is an insult to knights. Caster merely thinks he swore his loyalty to someone unworthy of being called a king in the first place.
* TrashTalk: [[ He's kind of a dick to his enemies.]] He's not even good at it. However, according to materials released....
--> ''[[BlatantLies "He never looked down on his enemies. Needless to say, he also never insults his enemies, confronting them with politeness and maintaining his fighting spirit and resolve even when the opponent lacks capacity.]]"''
* TheWorfEffect: [[spoiler: Suffers from this when he fights BB, who proceeds to use the Grail to deal 99999 damage to him.]]

!!!Master: Twice H. Pieceman | Voiced by: Creator/HideyukiTanaka (Drama CD)

A celestial being summoned from the records of the Moon Cell by Twice H. Pieceman to act as the strongest Servant and free humanity from suffering. His exact identity is unclear during the game itself, but supplementary materials reveal him to be the Buddha. The Protagonist speculates that Saver does not agree with Pieceman's philosophy of endless war, but agreed to aid him as a way of showing mercy and compassion to Twice's tortured soul. Saver acts as the final boss of the game.

* TheDragon: [[spoiler: Even though he doesn't support Twice's ideals, he's just being compassionate towards the soul of the original Twice.]]
%%* FinalBoss
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: When he glares at his opponents, and looks rather menacing this way.
* InvincibleVillain: In Extra Materials, the final showdown is described as Hakuno simply talking Twice down, implying any notion of actually defeating Saver to be ridiculous. Appropriately, his profile shows us exactly why: He's got martial arts at a higher level than [[WeakButSkilled Li Shuwen]], reduces all damage taken by an amount equivalent to his max health, reduces his enemies' stats dramatically by just being in their presence, and his Noble Phantasms are ludicrously powerful.
* LastOfHisKind: ''And'' also the first. A Character Materials entry released for FateGrandOrder relevant to [[spoiler: Solomon]] mentions that he is the only human to ever achieve enlightenment.
* LightIsGood: Everything that he does, he does out of compassion.
* MartialPacifist: He is always meditating, even in battle, and his attacks are all projectiles he waves gently with his hands.
* MythologyGag: In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', [[WhatMightHaveBeen the original version of Saber]] was called Saver.
* NiceGuy: [[spoiler:Given how he's ''Buddha'', did you expect anything else?]]
* OneHitKill: His Noble Phantasm, [[spoiler:Amita Amitabha: Transmigration into One.]]
* PhysicalGod: [[spoiler:As a Boddhisattva, he is a god of cosmic proportions, capable of governing the Solar System easily, and is one of the Vajra holders in heaven.]]
* PowerLimiter: Since he's the Buddha, he's far and away stronger than any other Servant in the game by a country mile, but it's implied that he doesn't have access to much of his power due to being in a Servant container, plus he's not really trying to begin with.
* PunchClockVillain: [[spoiler:He's only working with Twice out of pity.]]
%%* SupernaturalGoldEyes: When he is serious.
* TimeLimitBoss: During the fight, he will charge his Transmigration into One attack. Every two turns, one light will shine on his Mandala, if he lights all seven mirrors, he delivers a OneHitKill, instant Game Over.
* WillfullyWeak: He has access to some rather broken skills that make him more or less untouchable, but they don't appear to be in effect during the boss fight, meaning his "defeat" was not due to his opponent's strength, but rather because the Protagonist is able to tell Twice off.

The [=NPCs=] are virtual constructs created by the Moon Cell to help facilitate the Holy Grail War. Their appearance and personalities are based upon the data of real people, living and dead, but they are bound to the service of the Moon Cell and possess no free will of their own.

[[folder:Father Kotomine]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/JojiNakata (Drama CD and Fate/EXTRA CCC)

A man dressed in the robes of a priest. He acts as the overseer of the Holy Grail War, providing information to the Masters, enforcing the rules and occasionally providing challenges. In sharp contrast with his priestly attire, he has a very abrasive personality and almost seems to enjoy the death and destruction caused by the Holy Grail War. It is said that he is based on the data of a previous Master who competed in the Holy Grail War.

* AscendedExtra: He plays a slightly more important role in CCC. It's not so much of being more important as being talkative and seeable everyday and providing insight on what is going on. [[spoiler: He even gains a Servant, Lancer, and becomes an optional boss.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of Kirei Kotomine in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. He's snide, a former Master turned overseer of the Holy Grail War and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking loves mapo tofu]].
%%* MrExposition
* NoHeroDiscount: Even though he opposes [=BB=] for rebelling against Moon Cell and putting him behind the clerk desk, he still charges for his wares because of pure sadism. Some things never change...
* SinisterMinister: The protagonist notes that his "snide demeanor" contrasts his appearance as a priest.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Mapo tofu, like in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.

[[folder:Taiga Fujimura]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MikiIto (Drama CD)

The protagonist's homeroom teacher, an {{Expy}} of her counterpart in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. She often makes requests of the Protagonist and rewards them with decorations for their personal room.

* BerserkButton: Don't call her "Tiger".
* CuteClumsyGirl: She trips and falls ''every'' time she enters the classroom.
* {{Expy}}: Of Taiga Fujimura from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.
* InSeriesNickname: Just like in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', it's "Tiger". [[BerserkButton Don't say it around her, though]].
* MythologyGag: Her entrance into the classroom is taken straight from the Fate anime and visual novel.
* QuestGiver: Gives out {{side quest}}s and in exchange gives you decorations for your room. [[spoiler: Completing all of them in a NewGamePlus lets you fight the BonusBoss.]]
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Oh no, she didn't need that [[SideQuest tangerine]] for a magic sigil, not at all.

[[folder:Sakura Matou]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/NorikoShitaya (only in the DVD special, Drama CD, and Fate/Extra CCC)

An AI created by the Moon Cell who works in the Nurse's Office. She provides medical care and healing supplies to Masters, and her homemade lunches are some of the most valuable and effective healing items in the game. Unlike her ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' counterpart, Sakura has long hair reaching down to her knees and is a lot more assertive. Despite sharing the same surname as Shinji, they are not related; though she plays the role of his little sister in the LotusEaterMachine prologue.

''CCC'' greatly expands her role, making her one of the central characters in the plot.

* AlmightyJanitor: ''CCC'' reveals that she [[spoiler: eventually takes ''charge of the entire Moon Cell''. However, she only has a certain amount of control and the one in charge is still the Moon Cell.]]
* ArtificialIntelligence: Designed as one by the Moon Cell in order to have her properly take care of patients. It leads her to falling in love with the Protagonist and eventually to the events of CCC.
* AscendedExtra: In ''CCC'', she has a much larger role.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: [[spoiler:The entire plot of CCC happens because she falls in love with the protagonist because s/he's the only one who visit her in the infirmary not only because to get her weekly item in ''Extra''. When she grows feverish in the shoes locker as the Moon Cell tries to delete that "alien" emotion and no one helps her, the protagonist is the only one who who says "Are you okay?" and that one act anchors her grip on her own consciousness, and drives her to save the protagonist from their inevitable fate of deletion at the end of ''Extra''.]]
* BecomeARealBoy: [[spoiler:In the CCC Route Ending. Where she also gains a human body by using the Moon Cell.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She seems a bit eager to punish the offender who messed with the bulletin board in the 6th week.
* ButtMonkey: In the ''Teach Me Blossom-sensei'' omake series where not only is her status as a side character in the original game mercilessly lampshaded to heck here, but even after it was revealed in the final omake that [[spoiler: she upgraded herself to a "boss character", orchestrated Archer's amnesia from the start, and even went as far as to kidnap both main characters in an attempt to usurp their position as protagonist, the three playable Servants still ended up [[CurbStompBattle kicking her ass anyway with little effort]].]] It's so bad that even Saber and Archer couldn't help but feel only pity for her (and even then, along with Caster, would always end up ignoring her anyway for the most part), and Sakura goes so far to admit that she's practically given up trying to surpass Rin in terms of popularity. Girl just can't catch a break.
* CovertPervert: [[spoiler:After the Magic Circuit Repair scene]].
* DemotedToExtra: In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', she was one of the main heroines, now, she's just a NPC.
* RapunzelHair: [[UpToEleven Goes down to her]] ''[[UpToEleven ankles]]!'' Probably a nod to Rider from ''stay night''.
%%* SchoolNurse
* SupremeChef: Her food's so good, they're some of the best healing items in the game, and one of her homemade lunches is considered a fair trade for a very valuable ruby.

[[folder:Issei Ryuudo]]

The Class President of the protagonist's school, as well as the protagonist's friend. He plays a similar role to his counterpart in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.

She is responsible for increasing the strength of the protagonist's Servant through the "Alteration of the Soul" process. The only escape from SE.RA.PH, as she learns, is for a Master to obtain the Holy Grail.
%%* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
%%* FieryRedhead
* {{Foreshadowing}}: She name-drops the [[spoiler:Mystic Eyes of Death Perception]] in Week 6, which combines with Touko's purpose being there to hint at the BonusBoss.
* InTheHood: Wears a black hoodie.
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: With Touko. The two of them absolutely hate each other, though it's toned down here compared to the other {{Franchise/Nasuverse}} works. They're in the same room ''without'' trying to kill each other, after all.

[[folder:Touko Aozaki]]

The older sister of Aoko Aozaki, who tends to speak carelessly. Despite warnings to the contrary, she continues to tamper with SE.RA.PH to find ways of escaping, though she concludes that the most efficient way to leave is for a Master to obtain the Holy Grail. She's apparently looking for a friend of a friend inside the Moon Cell. Her physical appearance is a throwback to Type-Moon's original design for Tōko in ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai''.
* ArtificialHuman: [[spoiler:Her dialogue implies that she's in one of her doll bodies, and if there is no other way out, she can just terminate her current body and reawaken in a body outside the SE.RA.PH.]]

!!!Voiced by: Creator/MaayaSakamoto

[[NewGamePlus If certain conditions are met]], Shiki Ryougi appears as a non-Servant participant who has killed 99 participants in the Holy Grail War and seeks to kill one more to return to her world. Her Noble Phantasm is Boundary of the Void.
* AlternateUniverse: She's from one, namely the ''Kara no Kyoukai'' timeline.
* BloodKnight: If you manage to beat her, she says she'll be happy to fight someone as strong as you again.
%%* BonusBoss
* InstantWinCondition: If she Seals all your actions, she'll OneHitKill you.
%%* KnifeNut
* LuckBasedMission: Her fight has a strong luck component to it, which isn't helped by the sheer length of it. In particular, she has two skills that basically cause a Caster to lose instantly by either dealing well over your max HP in a single hit with Twin Towers or sealing all your skills for the rest of the match with Suspended Esoterica. Because there is no guaranteed indication of when she will use either, if you're unlucky you can easily lose at any time. Furthermore, Caster's stunning attacks do not work consistently on Ryougi, forcing the player to use a different and more SP intensive playstyle to avoid poor luck.
* MagicalEye: The Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, of course.
* MythologyGag: Boundary of the Void is a viable English translation of ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai''.
* NothingPersonal: She says this word for word if you decide to fight her. She only wants to return home and has to kill 100 Servants to do it. She leaves the Masters alone, though they're unlikely to last long.
* OutOfCharacter: Ryougi Shiki is not okay with killing at all despite her constant desire to do it. However, she has killed close to two hundred people considering the death of the Servant kills the Master as well. She would despise a person who committed this kind of slaughter.
* TookALevelInBadass: From just being able to fight Servants defensively at her strongest to being able to kill almost a hundred of them.
* StandardStatusEffects: Unlike every other opponent in the game, her Seals are permanent and cannot be healed, though Archer's 7 Rings of Heaven can nullify the attacks. [[FridgeBrilliance She's probably killing your ability to use them.]]

[[folder:Prologue Master Candidate]]

A nameless student you control in the Prologue. A friend of Shinji and is known as the Ace of the Newspaper Club. However, he begins to lose his memories and even his identity. He stumbles upon the Arena on the Last Day of the prelims, but he failed to qualify and died.
* DecoyProtagonist: The prologue is told from his perspective, and you control him throughout it... only to have him die at the end and control switch over to the real main character.
* SchoolNewspaperNewsHound: He's part of the Journalism Club, and spends his time researching for articles.

[[folder:Other Participating Masters]]
Various other Masters who qualified for the Holy Grail War and are going through their own trials at the same time.
* AndYouThoughtItWasAGame: Many of them are hit hard by this after the first round ends and they all get to witness (or experience) the effects of losing firsthand.
* BattleCouple: One girl entered along with her boyfriend in hopes of becoming this. Even after learning that the rules prevented this, they found ways to support each other - well, the guy did anyway - [[spoiler:until they're pitted against each other]].
* BreakTheCutie: The female member of the BattleCouple does not cope well with [[spoiler:being forced to kill her boyfriend.]]
* ContemplateOurNavels: One girl spends a great deal of time by the fountain, reflecting upon recent events. She acknowledges this and adds that the peaceful surroundings of the garden lead to her introspection.
* DespairEventHorizon: As the game continues, some wind up crossing this.
-->''"...I can kill anyone now."''
* FlowerMotifs: The Master in the garden keeps pointing out various flowers and their meaning in ''hanakotoba'', the language of flowers. [[{{Foreshadowing}} These invariably have some connection to current events]].
* FriendlyEnemy: Some of them acknowledge they could potentially end up fighting you at some point, yet remain friendly. One particular classmate keeps wishing you luck and encouraging you to do your best.
* ImNotHereToMakeFriends: Others, however, are not so open. One fellow standing near the Library bluntly shuts down your attempts to talk to him, as you and everyone else are potential enemies.
* {{Jerkass}}: Quite a few tend to be rather rude to the protagonist, like the aforementioned fellow near the Library.
* MadLove: The girl on the first floor absolutely ''adores'' her Servant, and over the course of the War, she progresses from squealing about his cool looks and special moves to giggling creepily and saying that anyone who gets in their way will be torn into pieces.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Affects several other Masters after the first Elimination Match.
* NewsTravelsFast: Everybody seems to have already heard what's recently happened to you by the time you talk to them. {{Justified|Trope}} in that intel on other Masters is ''very'' important in the Holy Grail War, and typically the only chance you get to talk to everyone is in the Evening, giving a fair amount of time for yesterday's news to spread.
* LooseLips: Despite the conflict being partly a war of information, a few participants can't help bragging about their Servants. Some of them last surprisingly long, though, which probably means their Servants ''are'' that strong.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: While the male member of the would-be BattleCouple quickly realizes exactly what they've gotten themselves into, his girlfriend remains cheery, eager to battle, and optimistic about their chances.
* TakeCareOfTheKids: The Savvy Guy above asks the protagonist to look after his girlfriend if anything happens to him. He makes this LastRequest [[spoiler:knowing that they've been pitted against one another.]]
* TemptingFate: Several make comments along these lines.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: The guy who gets matched against Rin in the first round completely blows her off as a non-threat, despite all evidence to the contrary. He doesn't make it out, of course. Another female Master is repeatedly ''shocked'' to see that the protagonist survived each round.
* WhatTheHellHero: As news and rumors of their exploits spread around campus, the protagonist can get called out on seemingly wasting time or [[spoiler:playing with Alice]] when they should be preparing for battle instead.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: The standoffish Master outside the Library accuses the protagonist of PlayingTheVictimCard after [[spoiler:being attacked outside the Arena by Archer]].
* YouALLLookFamiliar: Justified; most of them weren't able to customize their {{Digital Avatar}}s.

* ChekhovsSkill: Against [[SmartPeoplePlayChess Rani]], who beats everyone (except [[TheAce Gilgamesh]]) in a game of chess, she wins several games out of 200 rounds of mahjong through luck and willpower alone. (Because mahjong sometimes relies on the RandomNumberGod to get a good hand, even a novice playing against an expert can win a few games through luck. If they keep playing, the novice's wins might outweigh the losses.)
* DirtyCoward: She hides away in the janitor's closet rather than fight back or assist anyone in any way. She won't even let Karna help anyone.
* GagBoobs: As the protagonist notes, "That chest seems to be struggling against the pressure of that (bag’s) belt."
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: She says that she wants to trade Karna for [[spoiler:Kiara's]] Caster, thinking that he's an AdorablyPrecociousChild with an adorable voice. [[OlderThanHeLooks He is not]].
* IJustWantToBeNormal: [[spoiler:Her secret garden reveals that for all her peppiness, Jinako is actually a very depressed, lonely woman who feels like in the 15 years since her parents died, she's wasted her life. Her wish from the Grail is to go back to when she was 15 and start over, living "what I thought was normal at 15". This secret is so painful to her that she's the only girl to break into crying and screaming ''before'' you defeat her servant in battle. She suffers a complete breakdown by the time you fight her, culminating in her screaming, "Karna! Make them go away! Crush them so that I don't have to face this anymore!"]]
* {{Jerkass}}: She's incredibly selfish and rather unpleasant, including treating her Servant like crap without having the faintest idea of how stupidly powerful he is.
%%* {{Meganekko}}
%%* MotorMouth
* {{NEET}}: When he notices who she is, Shinji calls her out for being unfair by having more than 6k hours of playtime in an MMO that's less than a year old, which means she plays the game ''18 hours'' per day. She then proudly boasts that she only needs the rest for sleeping. [[spoiler:There's a FreudianExcuse for that, though.]]
* NerdsAreSexy: Her official art has her being rather cute and shapely for a [[spoiler:30 year old]] fujoshi. Oddly enough, fanart tends to portray her more realistically.
* OlderThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:She's ''thirty years old'']].
%%* {{Otaku}}
%%* ParentalAbandonment
%%* ThePigPen
* ThisLoserIsYou:
** She’s basically a giant deconstruction of anything to do with {{otaku}}. [[spoiler:She's a loner who deludes herself by believing she has friends and an important status as a champion gamer, and thinks her life is full of freedom because her parents are dead and her finances are supported without work because of her parents' insurance. In reality, her view of the world is so jaded, she doesn't want anything to do with it and as a result lives an ultimately meaningless life.]]
** Gilgamesh does not hide what he thinks of her when they first meet.
--->'''Gilgamesh:''' [[spoiler: Has human life finally become this easy? That one may simply disappear, cared for by no one, criticized by no one, hated by no one — like a living ghost. Kishinami. Did you sacrifice your command spells to me that you could show me such unsightly things? If that is the case, leave that would-be ghost in there to die. Rethink that desire to save what no one cares for.]]
* SmallNameBigEgo: She's a perfect mirror of Shinji, often boasting about her skill and calling herself the "Great Jinako". Though somewhat skilled, she's no match for either Rin and Rani when they go to their post as the MissionControl. She's surprisingly ignorant about the Grail War and its system, and it seems she never goes to the Arena at all. [[spoiler:It's implied that's the reason why no one saw her in the Holy Grail War; she chickens out of the war when she realizes the entire war isn't a game and hides, getting eliminated without fighting a single match. The only reason why she survives is because Karna gave her his armor.]]
* UnreliableExpositor: Unlike the other SG, hers are told from her point-of-view, which wouldn't be so bad if she didn't admit that she's such an unashamed liar in the same SG...
* YaoiFangirl: A parody of the ''fujoshi'' archetype.

[[folder:Kiara Sesshouin]]
!!!Voiced by Creator/RieTanaka

The Master of Caster, Kiara is a Buddhist nun who took the identity and teaching position of Taiga Fujimura in the Prologue. There is rather more to her than is immediately apparent.

Her Noble Phantasm is Angra Mainyu/CCC: All the World's Desire, in which she absorbs the collective souls of mankind and envelops them in a whirlwind of orgasmic pleasure intense enough to literally melt and reform their beings in an instant.

* BiTheWay: Not only does she compliment you (possibly flirting with you as well) when you first met her in the Prologue, [[ but even if you play as the female protagonist]], [[ she still kisses you (in order to install a program for you) in one scene]].
* BigBad: [[spoiler:Revealed to be this in the CCC route and is the one indirectly responsible for BB.]]
* ClippedWingAngel: [[spoiler:It is implied that she is restrained from her using her full potential as a demon by numerous factors: she absorbed the Sakura AIs who loved the Protagonist, she lacks the capacity to fully understand her newfound power, and Caster's "author's spirit" does not allow her to reach her "ideal self" so easily. ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'''s ''CCC'' crossover event gives us a bit of a glimpse at what she might be capable of when properly unchained, and it's both awe-inspiring and terrifying.]]
* DarkMessiah: She saw that the only way for the world to gain salvation is through her teaching, which is basically [[ having the humanity goes into a wild orgies of sex to ascend spiritually]]. As the world itself is so full of suffering, her real-life counterpart is hailed as the ‘Last Prophet’ for bringing salvation through hedonism and caused thousands of suicides. [[spoiler: She becomes Angra Mainyu, but instead of evil, she becomes an embodiment of lust by being an idol of lust and an object of humanity's lewd desire.]]
* DidntSeeThatComing: She dies in the normal CCC story mode at the hands of Meltlilith, foiling any plans she had.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[spoiler: Her class "Heaven's Hole" and her Noble Phantasm.]]
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:She can use both Meltlilith and Passionlip as "back-up" bodies if her original self is killed. In the Normal routes, her backups get killed off before she can do this, but in the CCC Route she ''does'' successfully evade death by possessing Passionlip instead.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: By Meltlilith. [[spoiler:A decoy is used in the CCC Route.]]
* MadLove: Her love for all humanity.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The characters that makes ‘Sesshouin’ literally mean ‘Biocide Institute’. Not something you expected a nun to have.
* NaughtyNuns: When your sect of Buddhism focuses on gaining enlightenment through sexual pleasure, you can't get naughtier than this.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:She uses the power of the Moon Cell and Caster's Noble Phantasm to become a powerful demon: a counterpart to Avenger (Angra Mainyu), except one created from all the desires in the world instead of all of the evils. And much like with Angra himself in ''stay night'', ''Grand Order'' reveals there was even more going on here, which you can pick up some foreshadowing of in ''CCC'' itself if you pay attention.]]
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: [[spoiler:Transforms into a demon comparable to Angra Mainyu, but failed to achieve the rank of a true God and true demon. She does have the power of a true demon, which is the ability to harm beings NotOfThisEarth.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Her last name can be spelled ''Sesshouin'' or ''Sessyoin'' depending on the romanization system used; there isn't a ton of agreement about which to use among the fanbase.
* TheTease: Her EstablishingCharacterMoment is basically smothering the protagonist with her chest after falling from the stairs, then seeming to deliberately prolong their suffering [[DistractedByTheSexy (?)]] for a moment with an absurdly fake innocence. Then she has the gall to call the accident “heated tryst” right in front of the class later.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Her desire to save the world through her sect is so incomprehensibly self-torturing, everyone’s wondering just how much she likes being used. [[spoiler: In the final battle, she keeps saying “More!” when a Servant gets a good hit on her.]]
* TrueFinalBoss: [[spoiler:The final boss of the CCC route.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: She passes herself off as a harmless Master with a worthless Servant. Her motivations and indeed story itself are guarded secrets only unlocked by following steps that are not apparent and generally speaking not even possible on your first playthrough.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Since the beginning, she’s dismissive of Sakura’s capability to feel emotion because AI shouldn’t have that kind of anomalous programs, and only true humans can. [[spoiler:That’s the reason why she can’t comprehend that Sakura’s and BB's love is real, and also the reason why Sakura Labyrinth exists. For her, the [=AIs=] exist for her to manipulate.]]

!!!Voiced by Creator/NorikoShitaya

A mysterious girl who bears a striking resemblance to Sakura Matou. She claims to be a dangerous and unusual AI, but it's unclear as to who or what is responsible for her creation. After seizing control of the Moon Cell, she imposes her will over the "Far Side" by destroying the Holy Grail War and replacing it with the Sakura Labyrinth, the keys to which are hidden within the hearts of the Masters and Servants trapped there.

Her true identity is a mutation of the Sakura Caretaker AI that controls the Moon Cell. After Kiara Sesshouin hacked the Sakura AI and removed her behavioural constraints, Sakura fell in love with the Protagonist and placed him/her in a GroundhogDayLoop to prevent their inevitable death at the end of the Holy Grail War. However, knowing that this was not a permanent or ethical solution but unable to come up with a better idea, Sakura broke down further and decided to escape the pain by restoring herself to factory settings. Because AI data cannot be erased, she moved her memories of loving the Protagonist into a trash file that was stored away, where they eventually gained sentience and became BB.

Her Noble Phantasm is C.C.C. (Cursed Cutting Crater), an Anti-World Noble Phantasm created from the combined authority over creation held by every primordial goddess in history, now usurped by BB. With it, B.B. can create new worlds as she desires, completely overwriting every aspect of the previous world. Her mastery over creation is so absolute that she can affect abstract concepts like consciousness or luck, and even the rules of cause and effect. In battle, she uses it to encase her target in a world where they no longer exist, wiping them out.

* {{Adorkable}}: No matter what kind of power within her arsenal, she’s still the impishly cute junior [=BB=]-chan and acts that way.
* AIIsACrapshoot: [[spoiler: Subverted, as B.B. only really went crazy due to being hacked by Kiara Sesshouin.]]
%%* AlphaBitch
* AntiVillain: She has almost no malice to her enemies, she’s never actively attacking your party [[spoiler: until Moon Cell overrides her, and her goal is to ensure you survive through the entire Grail War alive]].
* BoobsOfSteel: Quite busty. Also capable of going pointer-to-sword with Gawain when he's fully serious. Her stats [[MasterOfAll (all of them, of course)]] are star-ranked, which is not possible to numerically represent, beyond even EX.
* CallingYourAttack: When using Crowns of Ten Rulerships/Hill of Seven against Gawain;
--> '''BB''': Sakura Beeeeeam!!!
* TheChessmaster: She is completely aware that she, as an infirmary AI, doesn't have any active combat ability to defend herself. So she uses the Sentinels to buy time to absorb more data, then she sends out her Alter Egos to engage with the Masters. As the Alter Egos are parts of her, when the Masters fight them, her system turns on her self-preservation mode against the aggression, allowing her to use the authority to engage in battle, and allowing her own system to absorb more harmful data into herself.
* CompositeCharacter: [[spoiler: She absorbed the forgotten primordial Goddess from which all Goddesses originate, along with the Goddesses that came from her such as Tiamat, Gaia, Athena, Ishtar, Astarte, etc.]]
* CreepyMonotone: If she's sufficiently ticked off (notably refusing to sever your contract with Gilgamesh, or even if you decide to), she lapses into this. [[spoiler: When the Moon Cell wins in its and BB’s struggle of power over the Moon Cell’s control, it starts up full time.]]
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: UpToEleven, it doesn't even cover most of her panties. From her SG, it seems she doesn't notice the constant panty shot she gives everyone.
%%* {{Doppelganger}}: To Sakura Matou.
* EvilIsHammy: She's as evil as she is over the top, and she ''will'' let you know it.
%%* EyeBeam
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler: Of the normal Far Side story mode.]]
* GenkiGirl: Acts this way during "BB Channel" segments, but calms down otherwise.
* HeroicSacrifice: In CCC True End, holding back Moon Cell's [[AdvancingWallOfDoom Advancing Firewall of Doom]] as your Servant tries to clear the path out of the Labyrinth, complete with an AnguishedDeclarationOfLove.
* HolyHalo: In the fight against her she has a purple like halo behind her, which has a eye in the middle.
%%* IAmNotLeftHanded: See TheChessmaster
* HumanityOnTrial: [[spoiler: After the Moon Cell starts taking control of her, it uses her to begin a vote by all things that have ever existed on earth on whether humanity should be wiped out or not. Most lifeforms voted for humanity's extinction including humanity itself. Most plants were firmly on humanity's side and voted for their survival.]]
* KingOfAllCosmos: Omnipotent AI who creates the entire Labyrinth in the Far Side of the Moon, capable of doing just about everything, and has stats that are immeasurable even against the immeasurable EX rank, yet she spends her time trolling her opponents and allies alike with mild pranks and hijacking the transmission to host her talk show BB Channel.
* KillerGameMaster: Due to her being in charge of the Moon Cell, she can use all kinds of ridiculously unbalanced abilities in battle, like a manifestation of the tainted Holy Grail itself.
* LeotardOfPower: Similarly to the playable Saber, while it looks like she's constantly giving {{Panty Shot}}s, she's actually wearing a white leotard under her skirt.
* LiteralSplitPersonality: She's Sakura's backup that she filled with her growing affection for the protagonist when her function disallowed her to act so. The backup grew its own sentience and became BB. Also, the Alter Egos are parts of her that she separates from herself as her drones to perform functions in the Labyrinth. The more Alter Egos she splits from herself, the weaker she gets. Passionlip calls her Mother, though.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: She's Sakura's discarded affection for Hakuno, and despite her pleasant overall attitude and demeanor she is not a very nice person.[[spoiler: ZigZagged in the final fight where she muses that she did all this to protect someone, yet can't remember who as a result of the Moon Cell interfering. Subverted entirely in that it was Kiara hacking her that made her turn out this way, which is only revealed on the CCC route.]]
* MeaningfulName: Capsule Servant reveals that ''BB'' is an acronym for ''Black Blossom'', fitting the FloralThemeNaming of the Sakuras and her status as Dark Sakura's expy. This is supported by Meltlilith who refers her as ''Black Sakura''.
* NoSell: Potnia Theron, the embodiment of all the Mother Goddesses she absorbed, makes it so no being of earthly origin can defy or harm her. The effect can be nullified by activating the Zero Model in the servant, and the Protagonist is unaffected since they were able to exist thanks to the Moon Cell, which makes them alien in origin as a result.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Suffers a few through the storyline when her charming, GenkiGirl mask slips to become something more mechanical. [[spoiler: It's because she cannot handle manipulating the entire Moon Cell, and it's starting to consume her.]]
* PhallicWeapon: Her riding crop[=/=]baton is actually a transformed version of the Bishop Staff of Rulership, which is explicitly stated to be symbolic of the phallus as it is literally an erect rod.
* PhysicalGod: Within the Moon Cell, she can do almost anything imaginable. Travel through time, decide the future, strip away all of your powers, manipulate your senses, set the rules of the Grail War to whatever she wants, resurrect the dead, and much more. Even after you go through extensive preparations in order to stand up to her, she can still render herself invincible temporarily and [[OneHitKill instantly defeat you]] [[NonStandardGameOver with her Noble Phantasm.]]
* ShadowArchetype: To Sakura, figuratively and [[EnemyWithout literally]].
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: She doesn't mind being called "Bebe" or "Baby".
* StoryBreakerPower: Oh lordy. She absorbed the powers of hundreds of Servants and Masters, giving her sufficient power to attempt hacking the core of the Moon Cell itself. Fortunately, she can't overcome her original nature as a "caretaker AI", and thus has practically no combat power.
* TimeStandsStill: The Moon Cell cannot be hacked no matter how long you spend attempting to hack it, B.B. places herself outside of Time itself in order to take control of it.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Where B.B. stores the Golden Grail for her Aurea Boura Attack.
* {{Yandere}}: For the Protagonist.
%%* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

!!!Voiced by Creator/YuiOgura

A girl whose arms have been shaped into massive metallic talons. Like Meltlilith, she bears the same face as BB. Although Passionlip is friendly to the Protagonist at first, she attacks after receiving orders from "her mother".

Her true nature is that of an "Alter Ego", a "High Servant" created by BB after she accessed the records of the Moon Cell. She is a composite of three Servants- Parvati, Durga and Brynhildr- and her giant arms are the embodiment of the ten weapons that Durga received from the gods.

Her Noble Phantasm is Brynhild Romantia: Until Death Divide the Two Apart, the spear that Brynhildr used to exact revenge upon the hero Sigurd, who had promised to marry her but later betrayed her trust by deceiving her into marrying his brother-in-law (the king Gunther) instead. As such, the more affection the user has towards the target of this Noble Phantasm, the deadlier and more accurate the attack will be.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: To the protagonist. Well, more like a FanDisservice incarnate than outright ugly, but with hands as large and deadly as hers, people just want to stay away from her. She doesn't understand why her affection is unwanted, though.
-->'''Caster''': "That girl... Does she never look into a mirror?"
* BigEater: She engages in battle several times, but always breaks off first because she always gets hungry in the middle of it.
* CompositeCharacter: [[spoiler:She is a composite of the Indian Goddesses Parvati and Durga, and the valkyrie Brynhildr, and her giant arms are the embodiment of the ten weapons Durga received from the gods.]]
* ConspicuouslySelectivePerception: Her skills, "Quality as a Target of Abuse" and "Barrier Against Cognizance", essentially take this trope up to its logical extreme. Quality as a Target of Abuse is basically letting her gathering aggro from surrounding enemies and turning herself into giant punching bag, while Barrier Against Cognizance turns the trope into ''herself'', making her unable to perceive her own strange body proportion and making her capable of executing her SuperStrength skill. She ''weaponizes'' NotEvilJustMisunderstood by [[UpToEleven turning her own perceptions into those of abuse victims]]!
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Everyone near her has an inexpiable urge to be abusive to her, and her Punishment Time is disturbingly played like a sexual assault.
* DoesNotKnowHerOwnStrength: She destroys the Noble Phantasm of Archer [[spoiler:Robin Hood]] that he gave her because she wants to use it as ribbon.
* FemmeFatalons: [[UpToEleven To a ridiculous extent]], as her hands end in massive claws, that are closer to ten {{BFS}} than "fingers".
* FloralThemeNaming: She is named after Passion flower.
* GagBoobs: Her official bust size is [[UpToEleven 160]] cm, and her [[MaleGaze hip size is 87]] cm.
* HumanoidAbomination: She's the only Alter Ego, beside the unseen Kingprotea, that is visibly monstrous. She weights 1 ton and unlike Meltlilith (who is not even that bad), she doesn’t have an indication of weight "without". That means her giant arms and hands are not prostheses.
%%* IJustWantToBeNormal
* ImageSong: [[ Dreamin']]
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure: To a ridiculous extent. She has a 160cm bust, 63cm waist and 87cm hips.
* KickTheDog: Because of her skill always gathering aggro and inciting people around her to be abusive to her, she always becomes a victim of this. Robin Hood physically and verbally abuses her (something that he horrifiedly realizes is not his character), Alice and Nursery Rhyme bully her to the point of KidsAreCruel, and even the protagonist has the chance to do her in; if the protagonist goes on to her Punishment Time, they dismiss her ability to love and denounce her as an irredeemable monster - leaving Passionlip a sobbing, self-hating wreak as she dies.
* MostCommonSuperPower: She takes the large breasts of Sakura and BB to such exaggerated extremes, that she almost appears disfigured as a result.
* RocketPunch: [[spoiler:Brynhild Romantia, which becomes stronger and unavoidable more she loves her target. And she loves the protagonist so very much...]]
* ShootTheShaggyDog: If enough flags were gathered and proper understanding of BB's motive is gained (which is GuideDangIt unless you're in NewGamePlus), it's possible to spare Passionlip from the Punishment Time, which is fatal to the Alter Egos. Getting a second chance to live out her life even though she's just a small offshoot of BB, both she and the protagonist then promise each other they will meet again in a better ground. [[spoiler:When Meltlilith attacks Kiara, Kiara is using Passionlip as her decoy. Poor Passionlip then left to die alone, her thought filled with her broken promise.]]
%%* ShrinkingViolet
* StalkerWithACrush: [[spoiler: She had been following the protagonists and their servant for some time before being fought as a boss.]]
* {{Stripperiffic}}: She wears nothing on her top save for a couple of straps over her breasts.
* SuperStrength: With those arms it was obvious (she has a A+ rank in Strength) but it goes further than that: she also has an EX-ranked skill that allows her to crush ''anything'' that can fit into her oversized hands into a small five-inch-wide cube. And it doesn't even ''need'' to be so in reality; if it can fit her claws via FingerFraming, then she perceives it as "crushable". The game acknowledges the absurdity of this, even classifying it as a "cheat" skill. Her strength is also so absurd that merely attempting to ''touch'' her hands will cause your arms to ''explode'' if you're anything less than a Servant.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Her boobs are ''literal'' trash bins! Her main duty is to crush trash data and store it away in the valley of her breasts, even things that exceed the capacity of her memory. [[GagBoobs They're just that huge]].
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Her Barrier Against Cognizance is so bad, she thinks the reason that everyone rejects her is because she's an Alter Ego and BB's clone, instead of her monstrous appearance. Her entire Punishment Time is basically telling her that yes, she's a monster and yes, it doesn't matter; a girl is still a girl.
* {{Yandere}}: [[spoiler: For the Protagonist. Her composites goddesses are those who also screwed by love, to boot.]]

!!!Voiced by Creator/SaoriHayami

A deadly fighter whose face resembles that of BB. She has sharpened spikes for legs, and a love of violence.

Her true nature is that of an "Alter Ego", a "High Servant" created by BB after she accessed the records of the Moon Cell. She is a composite of three Servants- Artemis, Leviathan/Lotan, and Sarasvati-.

Her Noble Phantasm is Saraswati Meltout: Benzaiten's Five String Biwa, a concept of Saraswati's rule over civilization as the Goddess of River, Art, and Education. A non-combat Anti-World Noble Phantasm that turned destructive because of Meltlilith's love for battle, it is a great sweeping tidal cyclone that destroys the form of "anything that flows", whether it be water, words or even morality; thus the very concept of civilization itself.
%%* AnimalMotif: Bee
* AlasPoorVillain: As explained by the protagonist, Meltlilith herself [[spoiler:fears being loved]]. Caster's analysis of her pretty much explains this:
--> '''[=Caster=]''': A visage of a girl who is proud, but therefore, tragic.
* ArmedLegs: Her lower legs are giant metal prostheses she uses to fight with.
* AssimilationBackfire: [[spoiler:She attempts to assimilate Shinji because of his intelligence. Unfortunately for Meltlilith, Shinji's a genius hacker and was able to implant a virus in himself that weakens her.]]
* TheAssimilator: [[spoiler: Her ranked A skill Melt Virus allows her to absorb anyone she injects it into after they have been liquefied. It allows her to absorb EXP, Skills, Capacity, and more this way.]]
* BigSisterBully: To Passionlip; she's verbally abusive and callous to Lip as she can only protest weakly at her.
%%* BloodKnight
* BreakTheHaughty: The entire point of her Secret Garden is to break her ''eternal unchanging love'' philosophy.
* CatchPhrase: Her “[[InsistentTerminology Came from BB, and yet not BB]]” every time she introduces herself or other Alter Egos is the first sign of her [[BetaTestBaddie most apparent issue]].
* CombatStilettos: Her legs end in ''massive'' stiletto-like points.
* CompositeCharacter: [[spoiler:She is a composite of the Greek Goddess Artemis, Old Testament's Leviathan or Ugaritic's Lotan, and the Indian Goddess Sarasvati.]]
* DanceBattler: Her fighting style identified as bastardized ballet, though it's said that she wasn't training to gain that skill but by hacking herself into having that skill.
* FastballSpecial: Her combination attack with Passionlip, Virgin Razor Palladion, unseen in CCC but used against Gawain and Karna in ''Fox Tail'', has Passionlip throwing her legs first to the enemy.
* FloralThemeNaming: She is named after Lily flower, origin of Lilith's name.
* {{Expy}}: Has some elements of Dark Sakura from Heaven's Feel, such as [[spoiler:assimilating people into her body]]
* HandicappedBadass: As noted by her skill, she’s in all but form a quadruplet amputee and it doesn’t hinder her as a bonafide BloodKnight.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Deconstructed, because the nature of her love is so warped that no one would be happy with it. [[spoiler:Played straight in CCC Route, which she lets the protagonist go as she knows that just be able to love is enough for her.]]
* ImageSong: [[ Doukoku ("Poison")]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Her preferred method of killing her victims in cutscene is usually by impaling them with her knee spikes, while in battle it's usually with her heels.
* IShallTauntYou: When using [[DeflectorShields Farewell Albrecht]];
--> ''Oh~ Scary, scary~!''
* KickChick: Her main form of attacking is using her ArmedLegs.
* MakingASplash: [[spoiler:The goddesses that she is a composite of are those who had strong ties with water or the tides: Artemis, a goddess who strikes those who seeks power to rule over moon movement and tide rising, Leviathan, the famous sea monster that becomes model of Moses's staff that split the Red Sea, and Saraswati, Hindu's river goddess. And then, there's her Noble Phantasm, Saraswati Meltout, which she surrounds her opponent within torrent of water.]]
* MotorMouth: Normally an aloof IceQueen, if the topic of the conversation is Figurine then she will talk '''non-stop'''.
--> '''[=Meltlilith=]''': [[labelnote:Beware, wall of texts here.]]That’s right, precisely. Dolls are nice. However much I love them, they don’t complain, they never show displeasure, they never change. While I consider human consumer culture foolish, I am grateful that it has polished figurine culture. [[[LampshadeHanging She begins talking much faster than her usual languid pace.]]] It began with the statue of Venus, I think. In Greece. That’s what I imagine. And from there it spread through countries, across oceans, across time…When it reached the hands of Japanese craftsmen, a big bang rivaling the birth of the universe, no, a paradigm shift occurred. It’s come out already, so I’ll just say it. I like dolls. I love them. From life-sized to miniatures, I appreciate them all equally! But certainly scale models in particular draw my interest. Being able to run you tongue over them and admire them from 360 degrees gives such a feeling of control, of ownership, it’s the best there is. All there can be for those who can’t appreciate this hobby is total reeducation. After they’re melted, I’ll make them into base materials. Ah, but American action figures are no good. Too much muscle. When it comes to industrial arts, the delicacy of the Japanese is second to none. My dream is to gather lost model-makers and have them build my own toy story kingdom — Ah, of course I’ll make the craftsmen into dolls as well. Figurine craftsmen polishing their arms day after day, pursuing the ultimate mold…good smiles! Is there any other image so lovely? No, there can’t be. There isn’t, and so I will build it![[/labelnote]]
* MyRulesAreNotYourRules: Meltlilith is a ridiculously unbalanced opponent: she's Lv. 999(due to Level Limit), she can [[MegaManning absorb the EXP, skills and stats]] of fallen enemies to strengthen herself, and best of all, ''she is [[NighInvulnerability immune to damage]]''. [[spoiler:B.B. removes her invulnerability, and later Shinji uses an AssimilationBackfire to infect her with a virus that drops her to Lv. 1. By the time you fight her for real, she's far more squishy and actually easier to deal with than Passionlip because she only focuses on raw offensive power]].
* {{Narcissist}}: [[spoiler:As her main component is Sarasvati, Hindu Goddess of Culture]], it’s not exactly wrong when she says she’s acting on humanity’s desire. But her way of showing love to humanity is twisted into a self-love completely barren of anyone else, and instead assimilating said everyone into herself so she can love herself along with everyone more.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's the second oldest Alter Ego after the unseen Violet, and yet looks like a standard lolicon bait. It seems she has a complex regarding of being older, and yet looks younger than Passionlip.
* PetitePride: She comments that BB and Passionlip have too ''excessive meat''.
--> '''Meltlilith''': Which is to say it’s a body where every part is carefully placed, apace with the upper limits of the plastic arts.
* RapunzelHair: Same as Sakura and B.B.
* ReallyGetsAround: From the skill description, it seems this is the reason why she has that B rank Riding skill.
* SenseFreak: An actual Skill of hers: Neurological Disorder. She's essentially a quadruple amputee because of it. Seeking to gain her touching sense in a proactive manner, [[BloodKnight she can only feel satisfied with it by fighting]]. Another outlet for her touching sense is by [[MundaneLuxury collecting and making figurines]], which is all but impossible as her fingers are uselessly paralyzed.
* SoftSpokenSadist: She always talks with a certain grace that only apparent to stereotypical IceQueen and Andersen describes her as ‘mother-like’ in manner and speech. Doesn’t stop her from being such a sadistic bitch who dismisses everyone as pawns and dolls, revels in the strength from other’s suffering, and completely loses herself when fighting.
* StatusBuffDispel: [[spoiler:Sarasvati Meltout’s effect of ‘destroying the form of anything that flows’ translated as [[PowerParasite stealing enemies’ status buff and giving it to herself]].]]
* TheStarscream: She dislikes BB because BB is one-upping her attempt to be an absolute being. [[spoiler:Her floor is where most of BB’s remaining ally Servants kick the bucket because Meltlilith destroys them in one way or another in her quest to overthrow BB.]]
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Her top half is fully covered but the same thing cannot be said for the bottom part.
* TooKinkyToTorture: She outright challenges the protagonist to make her cough out her confession in her Punishment Time. She holds out her composure the best of all Sentinels.
* {{Yandere}}: [[spoiler: For the Protagonist. If Archer is the Female Protagonist's servant she is yandere for him.]]

!!''CCC'' Servants

!!!Voiced by Creator/TomokazuSeki

A new playable Servant in ''Fate/EXTRA CCC''. Gilgamesh is known as the "King of Heroes", a legendary Servant who boasts that he is so powerful, he does not fall under any of the typical seven Classes. His ego is so great that he does not bother to hide his identity as the famous Babylonian king who was said to own all of the world's treasures.

His Noble Phantasm is the Gate of Babylon, a portal leading to the treasury containing the thousands upon thousands of Noble Phantasms he collected during his lifetime. As he lacks the proficiency to wield most of them, Gilgamesh mainly uses them as projectiles or shields. However, he does have a few favourites: such as the anti-World Noble Phantasm Ea, a drill-sword that he uses for his devastating Enuma Elish FinishingMove.
* TheAce: WordOfGod states that the main reason Gilgamesh has no class was because "there was no more reason to restrict his power [using the Class system]". In fact, [[spoiler:the reason he is not allowed to be summoned on the Near Side is because he would make the Holy Grail War ''too easy''. Thus he can only be summoned on the Far Side.]]
* ArmorIsUseless: An odd example, and something of a DoubleSubversion. Gilgamesh's default costume is his [[ArmorOfInvincibility infamously durable]] golden armor, and his Guard animation involves raising his gauntlet to stop his opponent's attack dead. However, because he still does this even without the armor equipped, after you unlock more costumes for him (basically blocking with his bare hand), and the breastplate itself doesn't hamper the enemy's damage, this trope still applies and his Guard animation is best chalked up to RuleOfCool.
* ArtificialHuman: [[spoiler:Created from the Counter Force by the Gods to control humanity]]
%%* AnAxeToGrind
* BadassArmfold: His standard battle stance. Only by getting his HP to red does he lower his arms to a relaxed standing pose.
* BagOfSpilling: Him being at level 1 is the result of sleeping for (in Moon Cell time) over a millennia. He said he could regain his power by just using his Elixir of Youth and turning himself into a kid and thus naturally regaining his power by growing up (like he did in the time from Zero to Stay), but says it would be fun to do it the old-fashioned way.
%%* BladeOnAStick
* BlindedByTheLight: When confronted by Red Lancer, Gilgamesh deals with her by [[spoiler:stripping naked. [[MaleFrontalNudity His junk is represented by a shining golden light]].]]
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Most characters don't really grasp Gilgamesh's morals. For example, he doesn't consider red Lancer to be a traitor to her Master because they were never pursuing the same goals to begin with, so when a better opportunity came up for her, betrayal was natural.
%%* TheCaligula
* DefrostingIceKing: He comes to regard the Protagonist at almost the same level as Enkidu.
* DualWielding: Can use two swords in combat.
* EasierThanEasy: According to the beta testers in a blog post, using Gil is essentially cheating because of how high his base stats are.
* EscapedFromHell: [[spoiler:Pulls this off in his ending when he burns through all three of his own Command Seals and a reported ''90% of his Noble Phantasm treasury'' to break out of the Far Side and rescue the Protagonist from deletion at the end of the Near Side story]].
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: He ''is'' a demigod.
* GuideDangIt: Gilgamesh's Secret Garden is much harder to get without looking it up. The first requires you to use over 10 items, and must be done before your first SG of the floor's Sentinel or it will be {{Permanently Miss|ableContent}}ed. Particularly jarring since the other servants are not as hard to acquire.
* HasAType: A noble and virgin woman will always be his type. Preferably rich and well-endowed noble and virgin women. He spends much of his time with Hakuno telling her that she's too plain, poor, and skinny to ever be one of his lovers.
* TheHedonist: Look around his private room; he replaces the bed for a throne for himself (which means the protagonist sleeps in some other corner), decorated by tapestry, the shelves and table is full of wine bottles, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and a lion doll because he can't get the real one]].
* HiddenDepths: This was one of Nasu's intentions for Gil's depiction in this game. According to WordOfGod, his personality is affected by the era in which he's summoned to. This is why he was such an insufferable douche during Fate/Zero. However, the era he's summoned to in this game affects him more positively, which is why he's more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold here.
* HyperspaceArsenal: Just like the Gilgamesh from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and ''LightNovel/FateZero'', he mainly fights by pulling weapons out of his treasury or just launching them.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: Most of his conversations only make sense if you have prior knowledge of things in-universe. Like his ReasonYouSuckSpeech to Gawain flies over everyone’s heads because they don’t know who Arthur actually is and calling Julius [[spoiler:’a ghost’ before the reveal that this Julius was taken after the fight in the final week, from which he had lost his round and only remaining as a cyber ghost.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: He's calmer and less psychotic than he was in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''... but only because the ''EXTRA'' world resembles ''his'' kingdom more than the primary world did.
* ItsPersonal: He was fine letting BB do whatever she wanted and all, [[spoiler:but after nearly being taken by BB and seeing the determination his Master went through to save him,]] Gilgamesh declares BB to be his enemy now.
* JerkassHasAPoint: A lot of the things he says, while cruel, are pretty much spot on. They way he calls out Gawain for putting his king on a pedestal is spot on, but because Gilgamesh is a jerk nobody wants to listen to him. If you voice support for his position, though, all Hakuno does is defend Gilgamesh, not his statements.
* LonelyAtTheTop: [[spoiler: After he became a adult and came to understand the world and the future in ways [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer neither Gods nor Humans could understand]]. Leading to him becoming the arrogant Jerkass Tyrant until he met Enkidu.]]
* LoveHurts: He likes the kind of love that is and has a potential of being cynical, the love that also has an ugly side beside the good. That's why he somehow respects {{Yandere}}, {{Narcissist}}, and MyMasterRightOrWrong kind of people; they love so openly to the point of unsightliness, and that kind of love will surely become either their downfall or salvation. [[DeadSidekick Must be talking from experience]].
--> ''That which appeals my heart the most is the sound of a heart breaking that, when you washed the beautiful (heart), drips an even more beautiful water. When you lick it, it tastes sweet.''
* MasterOfAll: Gilgamesh uses all of his stats equally and suffers no draw backs as a result. His physical strength is more than Saber's, his magic stat is higher than Caster's, and his skills are more useful and powerful than Archer's.
* MundaneUtility: He has a Poison tasting Noble Phantasm stored away.
* NotSoDifferent: To the [[spoiler: Moon Cell, which was also created to observe humanity.]]
* NoKillLikeOverkill: [[spoiler:Enuma Elish. It not only does the maximum possible damage in the game, it ''also'' inflicts the "instant death" effect on top of that. So it does enough damage to annihilate anything in the game, and then applies a one hit kill effect anyway, just because. On top of that, it can only be used when the enemy is at less than 30% of their health, ensuring that the "instant death" effect is redundant no matter what. There is no possible situation that this Noble Phantasm is not pure overkill.]]
* OneHitKill: [[spoiler:His Enuma Elish attack kills any enemy with less than 30% HP remaining, including boss characters.]]
* OnlyFriend: Enkidu as it has always been. [[spoiler: He is still able to grow close to the Protagonist over time.]]
* PunnyName: The "A.U.O. Cast Off System" he possesses in this game is phonetically identical to the Japanese rendition of his title, ''Eiyū-Ō'' (英雄王, "King of Heroes").
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives one to Gawain over his loyalty to his king, right in front of the Student Council. He basically calls out Gawain for not catching Arthur’s personal dilemma over her ‘perfect king’ image and further burdening her with that adoration and expectation. Gawain unintentionally proves him right by not listening to his words and keeping his position as a mindless, loyal knight only answering to his king’s whim, though at that moment everyone agrees with Gawain as they’re ignorant of what he means.
* RegeneratingMana: Gets the ability to regen MP after passing Level 20 for 3 turns.
* SemiDivine: 2/3rds Divine (the ancient Mesopotamians didn't really understand how genetics work).
* ShamelessFanserviceGuy: First appears in his Servant ending completely naked, though he puts clothes on later. There's also him casting off his clothes in front of Lancer. He also has a completely casual reaction to Rani's demands that Hakuno strip for one level, neither excited nor disgusted.
* ShoutOut: His "secret Noble Phantasm" (the A.U.O. "Cast Off" system) is a ShoutOut to the "Cast Off" system in ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto'' (with the same effect and everything).
* TheStarscream: Gilgamesh makes no secret of the fact that, as his first action is to steal his own Command Seals from you, he could kill you at any time if he feels the whim. The dialogue choices you make determine whether he follows up on this threat or eventually becomes a SarcasticDevotee.
* StormOfBlades: Uses Gate of Babylon this way when guarding. Also has it as one of his skills.
* ThisIsADrill: He uses one that's also a [[CoolGuns Gun]] [[{{BFG}} that's bigger than him]]. Also, as all people who have read Fate/Stay Night should know, Ea resembles a drill more than a sword, since '''[[UpToEleven It´s older than the concept of the first sword]]'''.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: [[spoiler: Although created by the Gods to keep them relevant and control humanity, he ends up being the one who deals the fatal blow that ends their reign.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: The more you gain his approval, the more he denies that he grows to like you. He still calls the protagonist mongrel, but this is ''his'' mongrel who's impressed him so much with a bull-headed stubbornness. The feeling is mutual.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: [[spoiler: Back when he was a young boy. Loved by the people, the Gods, and ruled them fairly.]]
* WellDoneSonGuy: The protagonist as this relationship with him. Realizing just how precious Gilgamesh's praises are, s/he starts using them as a scale of his/her achievements. At least, that's how it goes if both the Master and the Servant are not trying to out-{{Tsun|dere}} each other.
* WillfullyWeak: In a sense. His sleep brought him back down to level 1, but unlike the other servants he still has full access to his Noble Phantasm. He holds back on using it purely because he knows his master would never be able to handle the mana strain it creates until they become stronger.
* YouGotSpunk: He really appreciates it when people stand up to him or even oppose him so long as they do so with strong, consistent conviction. When Andersen calls him a selfish tyrant to his face he practically applauds.

!!!Master: Jinako Karigiri | Voiced by Creator/KojiYusa

A cold and powerful warrior whose body has been fused with a suit of invincible armour.

As the rules of the Holy Grail War have become corrupted, there is no reason for him to hide his identity as the invulnerable hero from the Indian epic ''Literature/{{Mahabharata}}''. Karna is summoned as a Lancer, (although his Master later gives him the nickname of "Launcher" Class.)

His Noble Phantasm is Vasavi Shakti: O Sun, Abide to Death, the spear that Indra (king of the Devas) granted to Karna after being shamed by the latter's unflinching generosity and self-sacrificial honour. As the mightiest weapon of Indra, Vasavi Shakti is a spear of light that can take down even gods, but can only be used by Karna once.
* AllLovingHero: How he got the title as the "Hero of Generosity".
* ArmorOfInvincibility: His kavacha (armor) and kundala (earring) are so powerful that not even [[StoryBreakerPower B.B]] can do as much as put a scratch on them. [[spoiler: He gave the armor to Jinako without her knowledge or consent so that she could survive the reset]].
* {{Bishonen}}: Acknowledged in his official profile in that he exudes a "divine radiance" and is stated to be beautiful in every regard, but this trait is undercut by his [[PerpetualFrowner constant frowning]] and piercing glare.
* BladeOnAStick: Vasavi Shakti, which is a [[{{BFS}} BFSpear]].
* BornLucky:
** His Luck stat is A+! This is ''really'' ironic because Karna was really screwed over by the universe in his past life, and was originally conceptualised as a Lancer class (who traditionally have terrible Luck stats). He also genuinely believes that such a thing as bad luck does not exist, and that the tragedies he suffered in life were just "bad timing."
** [[spoiler:Subverted. Karna requests that his luck be displayed at A+ since he feels ''that lucky'' getting Jinako as his master.]]
* CanonImmigrant: He was originally created for the light novel {{Spinoff}} ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'', where he was a Lancer.
* DeadpanSnarker: All. The. Time. At one point he comments that if Jinako keeps stuffing her face so much with food, dropping her from great heights will do more damage than his Noble Phantasm ever could.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: Due to their divine nature, Gilgamesh isn't actually sure if he has his armor and spear in the Gate of Babylon (or rather, he cannot identify their originals because they are divine items "no one has laid eyes upon"), so he asks Karna to give him either his armor, javelin or his head. Karna replies that since he´s given the armor to Jinako and has to use the javelin to fight him, he can have his rotten head if he wins.
* DramaPreservingHandicap: He is called a Heroic Spirit that is as powerful as Gilgamesh (and [[LightNovel/FateApocrypha his Lancer counterpart]] seems to live up to that claim), but he is weakened by his connection to Jinako, a subpar Master. While still a formidable boss, he's no longer as unbeatable as his ''Apocrypha'' counterpart is.
* TheDreaded: When people find out his identity, they are guaranteed to be cowed by his fame. It's showing the most when he does a BigDamnHero to the Student Council as Gawain is ganged up by Meltlilith and Passionlip in ''Foxtail'' - the Student Council is the one who crapped their pants despite Karna being on their side.
* EyeBeam: Brahmastra, a projectile Noble Phantasm that changes its shape depends on his class. Since he has no class in this game, Brahmastra manifests as a form of his signature DeathGlare.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:At the end of the game, he reveals that he had given his armour of invincibility to his Master without her knowledge earlier. This allows her to survive the "reset" of the system at the end of the Far Side scenario and safely exit the Moon Cell, which is why she does not show up in the Near Side scenario]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Played with. He is saintly in his thoughts and feelings for others, never holding grudges and is endlessly loyal to his Master. However, due to growing up without a proper parental figure to teach when and when not to say something he suffers from BrutalHonesty. Thus he comes across as someone who needlessly prods others for their flaws when he attempts to give honest advice through his Discernment of the Poor skill, particularly involving Jinako's irresponsibility and poor physical condition.
* NoFlowInCGI: As the game engine would have a hard time rendering his flowing cape, the character designer changed it to a set of metal spikes with the same feel.
* NoSocialSkills: Everything that comes out of his mouth sounds like a cold insult or a sly remark, but it's actually him simply observing and critiquing what he sees without any malice since he grew up ostracized by everyone due to his low social status, meaning he couldn't talk to ''anyone'' without getting insulted or teased and thus relied entirely on body language and what he could read to understand people.
* MommasBoy: Not that you would expect it from her treatment of him, but he is overjoyed by the fact that she called him son just once when they finally meet again face-to-face.
* ParentalSubstitute: To Jinako, though he prefers to be seen as the younger brother.
* SlapOnTheWristNuke: A subdued example. Brahmastra Kundala ''hurts'', but much like Gawain's Excalibur Galatine it's entirely possible to survive it. In the latter case, it's an Anti-Army Noble Phantasm and a sublime existence on par with Arthur's Excalibur. In the former, it's a ''God-Level Anti-Country Noble-Phantasm'' declared to be the Noble Phantasm equivalent to a ''nuke'', not to mention the fact that its Apocrypha counterpart would have killed Ruler despite her damage immunity. Somewhat justified by his subpar Master, but still...
* TheStoic: He comes across as this because he believes that most things and events are "normal" and how they were meant to be, therefore there is no reason to be surprised. This trait even allowed him to accept his own death without a hint of resentment, even though [[TraumaCongaLine he really had every right to be]].
* TragicHero: The world worked ''really'' hard to screw him over throughout his entire life.
* TraumaCongaLine: Okay, born to the Sun God, sounds great right? Problem is, he's born into the peasant class, which in India means he's treated worse than garbage by the upper classes. Then his mom abandons him after he catches the fancy of the local King. Being a demigod, his skin and hair were a pale white and everything else was covered by a strange black substance, which along with his harsh statements and [[PerpetualFrowner cruel countenance]] only further ostracized him from his peers.
* WellDoneSonGuy: He single-handedly started a war after his foster father (who only adopted him out of greed) was insulted by the five Pendava brothers.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Averted. Despite his stoic exterior and tendency for BrutalHonesty, Karna is an almost ''pathetically'' nice guy who helped anyone who asked for it in life. The problem was that he spent most of his childhood as an outcast who was thrown away ''by his own mother'' and thus lacked the training necessary to properly express emotions.
* WorthyOpponent: Though he isn't exactly disrespectful of his other opponents, he holds Gilgamesh in relatively high regard, and for once Gilgamesh seems to return the sentiment.

[[folder:Lancer (Elizabeth Báthory)]]
!!!Master: Varies[[note]]Has been shown as Rani, Rin, Shinji, Meltlilith, and the PC's Servant.[[/note]] | Voiced by Creator/RumiOokubo

A new Servant in the "Far Side" scenario of ''CCC''. She has the horns and tail of a dragon, and refers to herself as an "Idol" class Servant. Though initially summoned as the Lancer-class Servant of Rin Tousaka, she is later re-summoned by Shinji as a Berserker.

Her true identity is Elizabeth Báthory, an infamous Hungarian serial killer who was said [[BloodBath to bathe in the blood of her victims]] as a means of preserving her beauty.

Her Noble Phantasm is Kilenc Sárkány: Roar Of The Dragon, the voice of the dragon Sárkány, who was said to be able to invoke rain and wind with his cry. When used by Lancer, it amplifies her voice to such a degree that it destroys both the body and mind of its victim. She later upgrades this Noble Phantasm to Báthory Erzsébet: Fresh Blood Demoness, the castle where Elizabeth reigned during her lifetime and tortured hundreds of young girls to death. After Elizabeth became a Servant and began to dream of becoming the ultimate IdolSinger, it was remodeled into a massive stage that channels the foul magic gained from the ceremonial slaughter into its amplifiers, increasing the power of Kilenc Sárkány.
* AlasPoorVillain: Even if she's not really sympathetic, she goes out [[spoiler:begging for anything but imprisonment, even a dirty, ignoble death. She still doesn't really understand why she's being punished, either.]]
* AmbiguousInnocence: She's like a little girl who dreams of happy fantasy romance, but she's also an insane butcher because she doesn't truly understand the pain of others at all. For her, being a noble means the people exist for her benefit and she can do whatever she pleases to them. To do anything else would be failing her duty!
* AnimalMotifs: Dragons. [[spoiler:In life her family crest had a dragon on it and there were rumors that she had dragon's blood.]]
* AntiVillain: Played with. During her third appearance she's built up as someone that might be sympathetic, but in the end she really isn't. No matter how innocent and cute she may be, she's still an unrepentant, narcissistic mass murderer. Whatever mental illnesses she may have had, whatever the effect her dragon blood may have had on her, she still chose to torture young girls to death just to stay young and beautiful.
* AttentionWhore: Her obsession with idol life is because of this. [[spoiler:After being outed as the serial killer bathed in her victims' blood, Bathory was house-arrested in her castle. Her windows were sealed because she was always wailing non-stop for attention of her wardens and she died of loneliness.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes: She's a ditzy idiot, but she's actually pretty potent under the right circumstances.
* BladeOnAStick: Her weapon of choice, which she also rides like a broom.
* BloodBath: [[spoiler:The source of her powers]].
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Because of the combination of her upbringing and mental illness, she honestly doesn’t see her actions as wrong. [[spoiler:As a noble, peasants’ life that she tortured and whose blood she drained for her bath meant nothing as peasants were nothing more but cattle for her to slaughter]].
* BodyguardBetrayal: [[spoiler:She killed her original Master, Lil' Ronnie, when she though Ronnie was unsightly and allied herself with BB because she's more beautiful. She changes Masters the most because she doesn't stop the threat when someone tries to assassinate her Masters.]]
* BoxedCrook: [[spoiler:When the protagonist dives into the root of his/her Servants’ Origin, Elizabeth is given to them as their Servant to conquer the Servant’s Zero Model and gaining the Servant’s Origin in exchange of her freedom from her Ice Maze prison.]]
* CuteButCacophonic: Thought it's noted that her voice is good, her song is hilariously off-beat and off-key, sounding almost like she can't decide if it's a song or a poetry. Not that her Noble Phantasm needs her to be an expert in singing; as long as her voice is loud enough, her voice can be weaponized.
%%* CuteWitch
* DisappearsIntoLight: [[spoiler:Subverted; from her dialogue, it seems she believes she will return to the Imaginary Number Space after aiding the Origin Servant activation, Rin says she just goes back to statis in her Ice Maze prison. In short, she's not really gone like the Servant in general after they fulfill their purpose.]]
%%* EnigmaticMinion
* GuestStarPartyMember: [[spoiler:In order to defeat the Origins of each Servant and unlock each Servants' full potential.]]
* HollywoodToneDeaf: Her singing is hard to stand because even though her voice is beautiful and her lung power extraordinary, she's tone deaf and has no artistic sense at all.
* HornedHumanoid: Due to her "Innocent Monster" skill (which transforms the physical appearance of a Servant based on the conception others had of them in real life). Her horns and tail are meant to invoke the image of a dragon.
* IdolSinger: She introduces herself as an "Idol" class Servant. She's... not very good at it.
* LethalChef: Her appatizer alone is enough to give a literal BSOD.
--> '''Sakura''': “I-It can’t be! Vital signs are dropping at an unbelievable rate! Mach down!
--> '''Rani''': “It does not appear that there was any poison included. This dish makes a double attack on the taste buds and the soul by its disagreeable flavor alone.”
* LittleBitBeastly: While at first one might think she looks like a [[HornyDevils Horny Devil]], her horns and tail are actually those of a dragon.
* MagicalGirlWarrior: Of all Servants, she might be the most magical girl-like. With her humorous skill animations like her spear throw leaving a trail of hearts, jamming her spear too deep that she has difficulty of pulling it out, her Noble Phantasm is a giant loudspeaker, and her idle animation has her dancing in place.
* MakeMeWannaShout: Her Dragon's Breath skill as she uses her dragon lungs to power up her screams.
* MoralEventHorizon: InUniverse, [[spoiler:during her final Punishment it's stated that she can never be saved or forgiven for what she's done, even if she didn't fully understand what she was doing at the time. At her deepest core, she knows this as well. It's played with, however, because this is the moment where she finally admits to herself that she was the one to blame for her own fate, meaning there's a possibility for her to change after that.]]
* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: Fought the most out of any character in the game yet keeps changing Masters. [[spoiler:She made pact with BB to be her personal PsychoForHire to defend her Labyrinth as long as she makes her immortal, namely keeps spitting her back out of the imaginary number space every time she dies.]]
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Her horns and tail are actually those of a dragon. She also has the Dragon's Breath skill. [[spoiler:This is the result of the "Innocent Monster" skill, which transforms her physical appearance based on the conception that others had seen of her in real life. Elizabeth Báthory was often rumoured to have mixed her own blood with that of a dragon, and her family crest also bore the mark of a dragon]].
* PantyShot: When she attacks. And there's that gratuitous shot of her panties in her Noble Phantasm.
%%* PointyEars
* ThePowerOfBlood: [[spoiler:She requires gallons of blood daily in order to bathe in it. It's also how she can increase her power.]]
%%* RecurringBoss
%%* TailSlap
* TooKinkyToTorture: She possesses the Berserker skill Mad Enhancement, but the rank is so low (E-) that it doesn't increase her stats or affect her intelligence... all it really does is invoke this trope.
* TortureTechnician: Has a Torturing Method skill ranked A. [[spoiler:We see the first hand that she has both Rin and Rani to gather [=NPCs=] and Masters alike for her blood bath in their respective floors, which also incite the suspicion that Rin and Rani are [[NotHimself Not Themselves]]]].
* {{Tsundere}}: Her like in [[WordOfGod the artbook]] is the Protagonist, but the way the entry is written is very stereotypical tsundere; it starts with a very long VisibleSilence, before finally admitting that it was [[EmbarrassingNickname the Pig]] that she likes. Even then, the entry ends with question mark, almost that she's not sure herself.
* VainSorceress: While not a Caster, she’s close enough with her constant fear for her beauty. It seems the reason why she fears romance is because marriage through love equals getting pregnant equals having bloated stomach, which is a big no-no for her.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She's claustrophobic because she died in house arrest. Her wardens became so annoyed at her wailing, they sealed off her windows and only left a small slit to push her food in. [[spoiler:When the protagonist gains her SG and the MissionControl traps her inside a cage of [=IceWall=], she loses any shred of her arrogance and screams for mercy the entire time.]]

[[folder:Caster (Creator/HansChristianAndersen)]]
!!!Master: Kiara Sesshouin | Voiced by Creator/TakehitoKoyasu

A new Servant introduced in ''CCC''. Though he bears the appearance of a young boy, he has the voice of an older gentleman.

His true identity is H.C Andersen, the famous Danish writer who among other things wrote The Little Mermaid, The Emperor´s New Clothes and The Ugly Duckling.

His Noble Phantasm is Märchen Meines Lebens: A Story Just For You, which allows Caster to transform someone, body and soul, [[OneWingedAngel into their "ideal self"]]. However, the target must incite the lust of a writer within Caster for the Noble Phantasm to work, and his Author's Spirit typically doesn't allow someone to reach their true "ideal self" if their narrative/CharacterDevelopment is incomplete.

* BeleagueredAssistant: Despite his UndyingLoyalty, Caster does not like how Kiara acts and insults her every chance he gets. [[spoiler:He even warns the protagonist when she's going to use her Noble Phantasm during the boss fight.]]
* BodyHorror: Thanks to the Innocent Monster skill he has no control over his physical form. Being a famous author has inflicted this upon him. Underneath his clothes are a merman's scales, frostbite, burns, and sharp pains that cut his throat when he speaks.
* BrutalHonesty: His Rank-A Human Observation skill makes him understand the flaws of others and leads him to make assumptions about the person. He then rudely states their flaws and errors. Although pessimistic, he does this because he [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold understands that person]], not out of malice.
* CassandraTruth: He repeatedly calls Kiara the worst kind of selfish hypocritical scum, but nobody pays any attention to him.
* CripplingOverspecialization: His magic rank is EX, but all his other stats are ranked E.
%%* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DeadpanSnarker: And if you have Caster as Servant, they have a short SnarkToSnarkCombat that quickly evolves into an [[NotSoDifferent epiphany]] of just why they're bitter to each other.
* {{Deconstruction}}: It seems to his hobby. If asked about Lancer [[spoiler:Elizabeth]], he calls her 'unsightly' because if she thinks that other people are nothing but pigs, then she's a foolish woman for being narcissist in front of a bunch of 'pigs'. He isn't exempt from his own sharp tongue, calling himself a useless Servant for having all his perimeters E and prone of SelfDeprecation when he looks back to the time when he was alive.
* TheDragon: [[spoiler:to Kiara, the true Mastermind of CCC]]
* GracefulLoser: [[spoiler: Lets everyone escape and doesn't bother to fight them after they defeat Kiara, happy with how the story had played out.]]
* InnocentBlueEyes: He's lacking in the innocent department due to his cynical mindset, but his childish form ''does'' give him the sensitivity and empathy he lacked later in life, leading to his own embarrassment upon rereading his own children's stories.
* LoveHurts: Had his heart broken throughout his life, [[spoiler: yet he still believes in love.]]
* TheMedic: Specializes in healing and support magic.
* NonActionGuy: He ends up simply buffing Kiara and letting her fight most of the time since the majority of his stats are absolutely atrocious.
* NotSoDifferent: In contrast with other characters, he doesn't actually criticize playable Caster's personality; he's just saying that her ears are tacky. When she gets offended anyway because of the unintentional [[FantasticRacism racism]], he quickly backtracks and says they're not that bad. When it's still not convincing his audience because he's acting out-of-character for avoiding deconstruction of his target, he instead talks about his past. The monologue hits Caster too close to home.
* OlderThanHeLooks: Thanks to the Innocent Monster skill, he's been summoned in the form of a young boy instead of as the adult he obviously became. He still has the voice of an adult man, however.
* PunchClockVillain: [[spoiler:He only helps Kiara since she's his master, but for the most part he doesn't really care about her goals. He even saves the Protagonist from Meltlilith in the normal story mode after Kiara is killed and he's about to meet the same fate.]]
* RealityWarper: [[spoiler: His Noble Phantasm Märchen Meines Lebens, (A Story Just For You) can be used to make one into their ideal self, but they must also incite lust in Andersen. His lust as an author for CharacterDevelopment within the story, to be precise. The reason why Kiara isn't her "ideal self" in her boss fight is because she didn't go through said development, thus his buffs only go far. Even ''then'' they were enough to raise Kiara to the level of an Earth Goddess, with the ability to make herself the size of a planet!]]
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: [[spoiler: Gives one to Kiara after she loses, telling her that her inability to realize her own flaws and that she should know she stood no chance against the Protagonist is the reason for her defeat.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: It seems to be a requirement of the Caster class. [[spoiler: His reason for following Kiara is that a servant follows their master, so he will follow her to hell itself. However, this is only out of duty and he has no love for Kiara herself.]]
* TheUnfought: [[spoiler: Never fights in battles directly. Instead it's his master that is fought.]]
* VocalDissonance: Despite his young appearance, he has a voice of an older gentleman. This represents [[spoiler: his childish mind capable of the fairy tales he wrote, but that he was still an adult]].
