!The Magical Girls and The Kaleidosticks

[[folder:Illyasviel von Einzbern]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MaiKadowaki (Japanese), Creator/CynthiaMartinez (English)

The TokenMiniMoe of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', and the protagonist in this continuity. While living peacefully with her family, a magic stick named Magical Ruby chose her as its master. Her job as a MagicalGirl is to capture a number of powerful cards.
* AfraidOfTheirOwnStrength: Linked with her IJustWantToBeNormal wish in the first season. Illya remembers that it was her who defeated Saber Alter after she annihilated Assassin. When she realized that she almost killed Luvia, Rin and Miyu too, she immediately teleports home (to everyone's surprise) and tries to quit being a magical girl the next day. Her mother snaps her out of her depression.
* AscendedFangirl: Of {{magical girl}}s in general. [[SubvertedTrope Not that she wanted to become one...]]
* BadassAdorable: This story still takes place in the ''Fate'' universe, so her magical powers are put into combat... against ''Servants''.
* BareYourMidriff: The [[spoiler:Archer and Lancer Installs expose her stomach]].
* BigBrotherAttraction: Magical Ruby notes that she has a "forbidden love" with her brother, Shirou.
* BornLucky: [[PlayedForLaughs Played humorously]]. Implied by Chloe as an explanation for how she keeps dodging her attacks.
* ButNotTooForeign: Half-Japanese, half-German.
* CutenessProximity: With maids of all things! Also being called "onee-chan".
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Her Zwei form. [[spoiler:By combining the two Kaleidosticks, she can fight on-par with an unleashed Gilgamesh. However her internal organs take damage when she uses them as pseudo magic circuits to increase her power, prompting Ruby to forbid her from such a technique when she mentions it.]]
* DualWielding:
** Kanshou and Bakuya with the Archer Card Install.
** Her Zwei form has her wield [[spoiler:Magical Ruby and Magical Sapphire at the same time]].
** In 3rei, she [[spoiler:Installs]] the Saber Card and Includes the Caster Card to [[spoiler:stab Darius with Rule Breaker]].
* {{Fetish}}: Turns out her reasoning takes a massive hit once she is around a {{Meido}}. Hilarious results follow.
* GenreSavvy: As a MagicalGirl fan, she can see the complications and cliches in her card hunting activities coming from afar.
** The first thing she does is suspect Ruby. Until she mentioned the power to control love, she didn't actually care about the prospects of being a MagicalGirl. She still got dragged into it unwilling.
** She taught herself how to fly and does so effortlessly because "don't all magical girls fly?"
* HeroicAlbino: Unlike the original ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', she's the main protagonist here, and has none of the creepy child traits that made her an EvilAlbino.
* IconicOutfit: The Installs give her one, albeit with a few {{Stripperiffic}} changes.
** Archer: Dons the red [[BadassLongcoat sort-of longcoat]]. The chest plate is cut short and the pants are removed, exposing her stomach and legs.
** Caster: Pretty much identical, barring the hood.
** Lancer: Wears the armor, but like the Archer card, the stomach is exposed. A little less revealing than the Archer Install, as only the interior leggings are removed.
** Rider: Very similar, meaning plenty of ZettaiRyouiki. Funnily enough, it even include RapunzelHair. The difference is in her visor, Breaker Gorgon, which is an EyepatchOfPower, rather than a blindfold.
** Saber: Appears to be a stripped-down version of Saber Lily. Only her gauntlets and greaves are armored, the chest plate is missing.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: She was dragged into MagicalGirl shenaningans because she happened to watch Rin and Luvia fighting. This earns her a rather difficult mentor and a magical stick that sends her to chase down magical cards. She wasn't thrilled. It's also {{deconstruct|ion}}ed later on; [[spoiler:the logical conclusion of her returning to normal would be as if she never met Rin, Miyu, Luvia, and Chloe, rendering everything that have happened meaningless. Also, Chloe will disappear if it comes true-- naturally, she violently rejects this desire of Illya]]. The whole thing sounds like a ShoutOut to (the manga version of) ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' [[spoiler:in which Sakura's failure to pass Yue's trial will erase absolutely every memory pertaining to gathering the cards]].
* LittleMissBadass: A little girl with absurd magical potential who gets to fight some of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''[='=]s iconic heroic spirits throughout the story.
* MagicalGirlWarrior: In the tradition of shows like Manga/CardcaptorSakura, Franchise/LyricalNanoha and Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica. Illya fights to save her town from disaster, all while coming to terms with her newfound identity.
* MysticalWhiteHair: White hair as part of her Homunculus origins.
* {{Nosebleed}}: Female example. Gets one after seeing Ruby "exposes" an unconscious Shiro. Slight PlotPoint, as blood is needed to enforce a contract.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Miyu's blue.
* ResignedToTheCall: Illya wasn't interested in becoming a Magical Girl, but Ruby forced her into becoming one anyways.
* SecondHourSuperpower: Despite being shown several times, Illya herself doesn't actually Install any cards until the early parts of ''3rei''.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Downplayed. Her [[spoiler:Archer and Lancer Installs]] show signs of this.
* SuperReflexes: She has a knack for dodging attacks in both her trance and tranceless states. [[spoiler:Bazett, a close-ranged fighter, even acknowledges her reflexes]].
* SupernaturallyDeliciousAndNutritious: Chloe receiving prana through IntimateHealing (kissing) from Illya is "like getting it from 10 other people."
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler:Illya's "Grail" mode is capable of tapping the cancelled Grail's power, granting her enough prana to fully utilize the Archer card, project several weapons, and fire Excalibur. In 2wei, the personality literally splits, resulting in Chloe, [[SubvertedTrope who retains the combat competency, but isn't actually evil]].]]
* TakingAThirdOption: [[spoiler:When forced between saving Miyu or the world, she chooses to save both.]]
* UnderwearOfPower: Her [[spoiler:Archer and Lancer Install, exposing parts of legs in the latter, but fully in the former.]]
* UnskilledButStrong: When compared to Luvia and Rin. She also gets a large amount of prana from [[spoiler:being the Cancelled Grail, which manifests as a SuperpoweredEvilSide.]] However, once [[spoiler:Chloe splits from her]], she becomes noticeably weaker.
** A large number of Illya's attacks involve [[MoreDakka simply firing projectiles created from her unlimited supply of prana]]. In addition to the aforementioned attacks, Rin can also utilizes said-prana to fuel her Magecraft.
** It's also {{deconstructed}} in one instance. [[spoiler:Her inability to control her power leads to her SuperpoweredEvilSide kicking in, resulting in a huge explosion which could've killed her allies, had Miyu not shielded it in time. In the anime her partner's scolding puts her into a minor HeroicBSOD, leading to a TenMinuteRetirement.]]
* WeakButSkilled: After [[spoiler:Chloe manifests herself]] at the beginning of ''2wei'', Illya's Prisma trance significantly weakens. Unlike Miyu, she can't use Installs [[spoiler:until 3rei]] to overcome her weaknesses. Instead, she is creative with her attacks and works well with her allies. With the exception of [[spoiler:Gilgamesh]], all of her fights in ''2wei'' are won through teamwork and her intelligent usage of the Cards.
** BarrierWarrior: Her barriers have multiple uses including restraining or blocking attacks and are a part of her standard arsenal of attacks. The anime plays up this aspect.
** RazorWind: Her Schneiden, which is sharp enough to cut a tree in half.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Her default MagicalGirl costume is Grade A.

[[folder:Miyu Edelfelt]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KaoriNazuka (Japanese), Creator/CaitlynnFrench (English)

A girl that Sapphire contracted when she abandoned Luvia, she quite literally conveniently appeared just when the stick required a person to contract with. Despite her past circumstances prior to meeting Sapphire being a massive question mark, Luvia just rolls with the situation, and takes Miyu into her "service", going as far as giving her the Edelfelt surname. She lives in the Edelfelt mansion (just beside Illya's house), and works for Luvia as a maid.

Unlike Illya, Miyu is extremely gifted in academics and sports, but has a massive problem interacting with other girls her age. She also has a ''very'' jaded outlook on the world, and shows little of the wonder a girl her age should have.
* TheAce: She excels at mathematics, cooking, athletics and can draw based on principles like cubism, which are far beyond the reach of any normal elementary school student. Ironically, her expert knowledge of physics gives her a disadvantage with respect to being a magical girl.
* BadassInDistress: Her captivity by the Ainsworths and being trapped in New Fuyuki City kickstarts the plot of ''3rei''.
* BareYourMidriff: The Saber Install used against Berserker.
* BigBrotherWorship: [[spoiler:She has this with her Shirou. She acts shockingly spoiled around him]]
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler:Courtesy of being her universe's Holy Grail, being held captive and having her captors wound her because her blood has magic properties, and her brother being held captive and tortured by the same people who keep her prisoner.]]
* BrutallyHonest: Miyu is rather upfront about the fact she doesn't bother to remember any of Illya's other friends names, even after she had been hanging out with them for a month or two!
* CanonForeigner: She does not have a ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' counterpart. Although [[spoiler:we never got to know Shirou's biological family in VisualNovel/FateStayNight]] so it's possible that her counterpart was simply dead.
* ComicallySerious: Oh so much, in fact here is her default [[ face]] to the wacky hijinks!
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: [[spoiler:What her world has done to her.]]
* CoolHorse: Comes with [[spoiler:the Rider Card Install]].
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She's her universe's Holy Grail, and up until ''3rei'' had been escaping from the Ainsworths.]]
* DarkMagicalGirl: She has all the makings of one, though the only time she is against Illya was when she was TheRival in the beginning.
* {{Expy}}: She borrows heavily from [[spoiler:Sakura Matou's backstory as an abused grail conduit]] in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.
* FatalFlaw / PoorCommunicationKills: She's selfless, but her communication skills are horrible. These two traits put together have lead to many problems throughout the story.
** She was the cause of [[spoiler:Illya's TenMinuteRetirement]]. Although she intended to [[spoiler:keep her from harm]], her harsh words cause a misunderstanding between the two.
** She [[spoiler:warps Luvia and Rin out of the Mirror World]] and tries to fight [[spoiler:Berserker]] alone. While she does succeed in [[spoiler:taking some of his lives]], her inability to [[spoiler:finish him off]] nearly gets her killed.
** In ''2wei'', she misunderstands Illya's wish to be normal and chooses to face [[spoiler:Chloe]] alone. She takes action without any form of assistance from her allies and doesn't consult anyone about her decision. If Illya hadn't interrupted, the two would have [[spoiler:killed each other]].
** Later, in an attempt to quickly end the fight, she uses [[spoiler:Bellerophon against Bazett]], ignoring Sapphire's warnings not to do so. Had the [[spoiler:Pegasus]] not been the source of the attack, her heart would have been pierced by [[spoiler:Fragarach]].
** At the end of ''2wei'', she willingly lets [[spoiler:Card!Gilgamesh absorb]] her so that Illya [[spoiler:can escape.]] All she manages to do is force Illya to engage [[spoiler:Gilgamesh alone]] in order to save her.
* GiveHerANormalLife: [[spoiler:What her brother wanted for her. He fought the Ainsworth in order to send her off to another universe so that she could have a normal, better life. Too bad it didn't last long.]]
* HiddenDepths: Who would have thought the stoic, serious Miyu [[spoiler:loved bear pajamas and was very spoiled around her brother.]]
* IconicOutfit: They come with the Installs, with some minor changes.
** Saber: Resembles Saber's non-armored battle wear. However, both the stomach and legs are exposed.
** Rider: Pretty much identical.
* IfItsYouItsOkay: She seems to be like this to Illya.
* TheLancer: To drive the point home, she uses the Lancer card in her first appearance.
* LeotardOfPower: Her MagicalGirl form.
* MagicalGirlWarrior: Unlike Illya, she has a decidedly more no-nonsense approach on how to deal with things and is quicker to use precise attacks.
* MakeAWish: ''3rei'' reveals that she was a [[spoiler:Child of God who has the ability to indiscriminately grant wishes]], but loses that ability [[spoiler:when she becomes six years old.]]
** MundaneWish: She spent her last wish [[spoiler:to become Shirou's biological sister, changing the color of her eyes from red to that of Shirou's.]]
* {{Meido}}: In exchange for shelter and living expenses, she works as a maid for Luvia. Once Illya finds out, she goes crazy about the prospect of having a maid as a friend. The results are... interesting.
* NewTransferStudent: Like [[GenreSavvy Illya]] thought...
* NoNameGiven: She isn't an Edelfelt. Luvia acts like her sister, but her real family name isn't given.
** ''3rei'' reveals that [[spoiler: her current surname is likely Emiya, from the family that adopted her, but her true family name is Sayutsuki.]]
* NoSocialSkills: When it seems Miyu is absolutely better then Illya in everything, Miyu completely sucks at interacting with others of her age. Justified [[spoiler:by her being kept captive by the Ainsworths because of her power as her universe's Holy Grail, and thus not being able to interact with other children]].
** It's later revealed that [[spoiler:she was raised alone by her mother as a child and isolated from other children in order to take advantage of her wish granting abilities. After she was adopted by Kiritsugu, he and Shirou raised her in isolation to hide her from others.]]
* NotQuiteFlight: Miyu can't actually fly because she has mental hangups properly picturing it. Instead, she solidifies magical energy to momentarily create footholds mid-air that she can repeatedly jump off of.
* ParodySue: Miyu is ridiculously good at ''almost'' everything, she aces all her tests at school, bakes a fabulous wedding cake using only basic school kitchen utensils, creates art pieces so incredible her teacher questions how she's supposed to grade them, etc. She's also very powerful both physically and with magic... but she simply can't ''fly'' properly unlike Illya or Chloe, which for a MagicalGirl is a big hinderance. More humorously, she also can't ''dance''.
* PsychosomaticSuperpowerOutage: [[spoiler:She can't fly not because of her knowledge of physics, but because she is too broken to imagine herself capable of flying]].
* RedOniBlueOni: The quiet and reserved blue to Illyasviel's outgoing red.
* TheSpock: One of the reasons she can't fly.
* SteppingStonesInTheSky: Not literal stones, but since Miyu can't fly properly, she instead creates hovering platforms with magic to jump off. Combined with her speed, it's just as efficient as real {{Flight}}.
* TheStoic: Whatever happens to her, she rarely loses her composure unless things get ''really'' critical. [[spoiler:3rei gives a bunch of very dark reasons for this]].
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Lampshaded by [[spoiler:her brother]] no less.
-->[[spoiler:'''Miyu's Brother''']]: But. Um. What's with that lewd outfit of hers? I think [[spoiler:big brother]] here may need to lecture her...
* SugarAndIcePersonality: She's usually very stoic and distant, Illya is the only one she shows her sweet side to. Lampshaded at some point from Illya's friends. [[spoiler:She is ''very'' sweet to her brother to the point that Illya and Chloe couldn't believe when they found out.]]
* SupremeChef: She can cook an entire feast ''with only a frying pan''. More comedically, she also made a whole wedding cake from "left overs".
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: Invoked. She purposefully stranded herself on Illya's world, in hopes she'd never have to return to her original reality.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Illya.
* ZettaiRyouiki: The Rider Install.

[[folder:Chloe von Einzbern / Dark Illya]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/ChiwaSaito (Japanese)

Illya's cousin, recently transferred in from Germany. Or at least, that's the story Illya (and later on her mom Irisviel) ''tells'' everyone. In truth she's a sort of a magical clone created by accident when Illya was helping Rin in stabilizing the dragon pulse beneath Fuyuki city, with the core of her being based around the Archer card.

Her personality however comes from the supressed memories of Illya's original purpose as the Holy Grail conduit, and she's rather bitter at the fact that Illya's been able to live a normal life ignorant of this.
* AbnormalAmmo: Comes with the [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Archer Card]]. Her bow shoots swords, in addition to normal arrows.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Probably as a reference to [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Archer]].
* AntiHero: She is Kiritsugu's daughter after all. Bonus points for using Heroic Spirit Emiya's abilities, who was also an anti-hero. This pops up in ''3rei'' in that she simply doesn't care that her actions [[spoiler:will result in the destruction of the world.]] She fights for the sake of the people she cares about, and ''only'' those that she cares about.
* ArcherArchetype: She is using the Archer card. Although she works well works well with allies, she is more than willing to take independent actions such as in ''3rei'' where she [[spoiler:decides to fight Illya right after regrouping with her]].
* ArtificialHuman: She's a magical clone built around the Archer card, and can only continue existing for as long as Illya provides her with prana, or someone doesn't dispel the Archer card.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Comes with the Archer card, in addition to its projection magic. Most of its uses are [[PlayedForLaughs humorous, at best]]. It's used a bit more seriously in 3rei, as this is how Chloe dispels her {{synchronization}}.
* BadassAdorable: Naturally comes with being related to Kiritsugu and Illya.
* BerserkButton: Chloe doesn't like being called a [[spoiler:"secondhand clone".]]
* BowAndSwordInAccord: The Archer card's powers grant her abilities for both melee and ranged combat.
* CloningBlues: Chloe is the suppressed memory/destiny of Illya as a Holy Grail Conduit given form. She's not happy at being abandoned.
* DarkMagicalGirl: Unlike Illya who in this series led a happy life, Chloe was sealed away and, once freed, proceeded to direct her pent-up anger against Illya, coming very close to killing her several times before Illya can even attempt to understand what's happening. In a very classic turn of events, Chloe eventually confesses that all she wants is to be alive and have family/friends. Things work out in the end.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Not quite, her hair is actually lavender, but looks white-ish under certain light.
* DualWielding: Kanshou and Bakuya.
* EnemyWithout: Averted after being accepted into Illya's family.
* EvilTwin: Less evil, more frustrated at the pointlessness of her existence, at least at first. Averted later on when she makes a HeelFaceTurn and actively supports Illya.
* {{Expy}}: She is basically the original ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' Illya inserted into ''Kaleid Liner Prisma'''s AlternateContinuity.
* {{Foil}}: To Illya. Ruby even lampshades it.
* GirlishPigtails: Likes wearing these when she's in casual dress. To differentiate from how Illya does her hair, Chloe's twintails are usually higher on her head, much like Rin's.
** Weirdly enough, in the AnimatedAdaptation she only has one of them on her right side.
* HeelFaceTurn: More like heel face pound on the head courtesy of Irisviel.
* InSeriesNickname: She is also Illya, so Rin started calling her 'Kuro' (Black) because of her darker skin to differentiate the two of them. Kuro then took a Western equivalent, "Chloe", for her new name.
-->Chloe: "Kuro? What am I, a cat...?"
* TheLancer: Even more so than Miyu.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Shojou Shinka, the series' Emiya remix, appears to be associated with her. It first plays when she fights the Saber Card using Illya's body, and it plays again for her when the party fights [[spoiler:Gilgamesh]].
* LittleMissSnarker: Another reference to [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Archer]].
* LovableSexManiac: She knows a whole lot more about sex than a girl of her supposed age should, and what's more knows how to put that knowledge to ''practical'' use.
* MakeAWish: To have her own existence.
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: Takes this up since [[spoiler:she takes Rin's place in explaining things for 3rei.]]
* StormOfBlades: She can fire swords as projectiles using Projection, but not to the same extent that [[spoiler:Gilgamesh]] can do it.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Downplayed. Chloe is an antagonistic version of Illya herself with all the mage training Illya lacks, though she's just angry about being sealed rather than outright evil. This also leads Chloe to an eventual HeelFaceTurn.
* {{Synchronization}}: With Illya. Even if there is a mage who can remove the curse, she decides to keep it because she likes Illya, in her own strange way.
** [[spoiler: She removes the curse in 3rei in order to fight Illya.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: She becomes integral to ''2wei''[='=]s plot, and the importance of her role also extends to ''3rei''.
* ZettaiRyouiki: '''Grade A'''! She seems to aim for Grade S, the only thing missing here is a {{Tsundere}} personality, which she's actually kind of working on.

[[folder:Magical Ruby and Magical Sapphire]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/NaokoTakano (Ruby, Anime), Creator/JojiNakata (Ruby, Drama CD), Creator/MiyuMatsuki (Sapphire) (Japanese), Joanne Bonasso (Ruby), Molly Searcy (Sapphire) (English)

A pair of sentient magical artifacts created by Zeltrech, Ruby and Sapphire were initially loaned to Rin and Luvia to accomplish the card gathering mission. They are tools of immense power, capable of creating magical effects that would likely kill a normal wizard due to excessive mana use... Only if they feel like it.

They eventually grew tired of the near-constant squabbling that the two female mages did, and went on their way to find more... appropriate masters. Although technically made at the same time, Ruby sees herself as the older sister, and is treated that way by Sapphire.
* ClingyMacGuffin: They will force Illya and Miyu to be magical girls until such time as they feel like annulling the contract. And no one else can do anything to change that.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}s
* EmpathicWeapon: They basically use the power of a person's heart to pull infinite power from the multi-verse.
* {{Expy}}: Their GenkiGirl and ShrinkingViolet sisters routine is based on how Kohaku and Hisui act in TYPE-MOON's ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' series. They even have the same Japanese voice actors in the anime.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Their first plan to deal with anything is generally "explode it with maximum prejudice". And they both seem to loathe Rin and Luvia
* LoyalPhlebotinum: Refuse to leave Illya and Miyu, first out of annoyance with Rin and Luvia, but later out of loyalty to the two girls.
* MentorMascot
* RedOniBlueOni: Magical Ruby is the extroverted Red Oni and Magical Sapphire is the introverted Blue Oni.
* ServileSnarker: To their initial masters, Rin and Luvia. [[WithFriendsLikeThese Not the sticks' fault.]]
* ShipperOnDeck
* SiblingIncest: Magical Ruby acts this way towards Magical Saphire in Episode 7.

!The Mage Association
[[folder:Rin Tohsaka]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KanaUeda (Japanese), Creator/CarliMosier (English)

Ruby's former master, and a mage-in-study at the Tower of London. In the manga she gets roped into retrieving the cards from Fuyuki City after she gets into a brawl with Luvia that destroyed a ''huge'' chunk of the school, while in the anime she volunteers when she hears that, if she succeeds, she'd be taken under Zeltrech's wing as an apprentice.

While being typically abrasive and possessing a hair-trigger temper (''especially'' with regards to Luvia), Rin shows real concern to Illya, and understands that the responsibilities thrust on the girl might be too much for a girl her age to bear.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Downplayed. A minor example in which she's willing to declare a child as her slave and make her fight corrupted heroes against her will. In a side story where Prisma-Verse Illya meets main story Rin, she considers her much nicer than the pushier, bossy counterpart she's used to
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In 3rei, she and Luvia have been [[spoiler:subjected to the Ainsworths' "doll-ification" thanks to Angelica's powers]].
* ButtMonkey: Alongside Luvia. Most frequently during battles.
* CatGirl: When transformed into Kaleido Ruby.
* ClingyJealousGirl: She hates it if anyone is trying to get close to Shirou.
* CombatPragmatist: To the point even Luvia has respect for this quality of Rin.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: It was even lamphaded by Shirou when he was under a truth serum.
* GirlishPigtails
* MagicalGirl: Was one before Magical Ruby switched her for Illya.
* {{Meido}}: To Luvia, thanks to a SchmuckBait.
* OppositesAttract: She admits that Shirou's own philosophy is the exact opposite of hers but she still likes him.
* TheRival: To Luvia. Both in magic and love.
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: Rin's 'explain things' glasses make a triumphant return when Rin and co are having a strategy meeting, She even dons them in her maid outfit.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork / VitriolicBestBuds: For all their showing of supposed hatred, Rin and Luvia constantly seem to work together and support each other when they really need to..
* TookALevelInKindness: She lets Illya off the hook after noticing the girl's deteriorating emotional condition after her first fight against Berserker. Compare that to Rin at the beginning of the series, who outright declares Illya her Servant and forces her into fights she has no business in.
* {{Tsundere}}: Rin is Rin, it doesn't matter in which universe. That said, this incarnation shows more of her ''dere'' side than Rin normally does, as with her smiling and praising Illya for her showing in her first battle.
* ZettaiRyouiki: '''GRADE S!'''

[[folder:Luviagelita Edelfelt]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/ShizukaIto (Japanese), Creator/ShelleyCaleneBlack (English)

Sapphire's former master, and like Rin, a mage-in-training in Tower of London facility. Despite being ostensibly on the same side, the fact that Luvia utterly ''loathes'' Rin makes her treat their task as a competition with the Japanese mage rather than a cooperative mission. She's proud, snooty, and very VERY rich, all things that infuriate Rin to no end. However underneath all this she does keep a sensitive side, though it's likely no one but Miyu has been able to witness it.

In a bit of irony, in the mainline [=F/SN=], she and Rin are distant cousins, but with the changes to the nature of the Grail War in Prisma Illya, it begs to be seen whether this is still the case.
* BigFancyHouse: And one that Sella observed was built from the ground up over the course of ''one day''.
-->'''Illya''': Weren't there a row of normal houses here this morning?!?
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In 3rei. Much like Rin, Luvia [[spoiler:mindlessly serves the Ainsworths as a maid through Angelica's manipulations]].
* ButtMonkey: Alongside Rin. Most frequently during battles.
* BlondesAreEvil: Not evil, but mischievous enough.
* ClingyJealousGirl: For Shirou.
* CoolBigSis: To Miyu.
* {{Jerkass}}: She likes making life miserable for Rin and generally treats anyone else with a measure of condescension.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: However, Luvia is noticeably more polite and considerate towards Illya and Miyu.
* MagicalGirl: Like Rin, she was one before Magical Sapphire switched her for Miyu.
* NoblewomansLaugh: She really likes giving a smug "Ohohohoho".
* {{Ojou}}
* RichBitch: She's not really a bitch, but qualifies since she looks down on people because of her money and pedigree. Especially towards Rin. Downplayed or nonexistent with Miyu and Illya.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: When she feels it is necessary, Luvia will use this to help Miyu and Illya.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork / VitriolicBestBuds: For all their showing of supposed hatred, Rin and Luvia constantly seem to work together and support each other when they really need to.

[[folder:Bazett Fraga [=McRemitz=]]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/HitomiNabatame

The strongest enforcer of the Mage Association, and the original agent assigned to retrieve the cards, before Zelretch intervened. Despite being a normal human, she possesses a strength rivaling that of the cards' manifested Heroic Spirits.

She appears midway into 2wei, trying to take back the cards that both Rin and Luvia had collected at that point. It is during this encounter that she reveals just how ''powerful'' she is, as she takes out most of the main cast very handily. It is only after the revelation that there's an ''eight'' card slumbering in the city that she is forced to retreat, and eventually ally with Illya and her friends.
* AdaptationalBadass: While an incredibly formidable magus and combatant, it is generally recognized in series that she (along with every other human character in Nasuverse not named Aoko Aozaki, Shirou Emiya, or FateExtra's Ryougi Shiki) should not be able to beat a Servant. She ''kills'' two singlehandedly and rips the class card out of a third.
* {{Badass}}: Completely trounces all the main characters with little effort. [[spoiler: She later tears out ''Gilgamesh's'' class card after running through his Gate of Babylon and surviving.]]
* BadassInANiceSuit: Still likes to wear suits and ties while stomping people.
* TheBerserker: She is compared to THE Berserker in series. She is also compared to classical berserkers when she [[spoiler:charges ''through'' Gilgamesh's StormOfBlades and rips his heart out]].
* CardboardBoxHome: Lives under one after getting her assets seized. Doesn't seem to bother her though.
* CharlesAtlasSuperPower: Tore down Luvia's mansion and ripped a two meter chunk out of her front lawn with her bare hands alone.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Lets just say that what passes for common sense for this version of Bazett doesn't apply for everyone else.
--> '''Illya, Miyu, and Chloe:''' Something seems to be wrong with this person!
* TheComicallySerious: She sells ice pops with the same fervor that she has in battle.
* CounterAttack: Her Mystic Code and Noble Phantasm Fragarach. It works on a similar principle as Gae Bolg, but is defensive in nature, making it less effective against an enemy who isn't using their strongest attack. When used against [[spoiler:Rider!Miyu's Bellerophon]] it strikes the heart of the [[spoiler:Pegasus, instead of the attacker, the reason being that Miyu is only channelling Rider instead of being an actual Heroic Spirit]].
* CurbStompBattle: She's first introduced defeating Luvia and her butler August with ease, and when Illya and Chloeshow up to investigate what's happening, Bazett gives them a similar beating. It takes [[spoiler:Miyu riding Bellerophon]] to at least even the playing field, ''[[UpToEleven and then]]'' [[spoiler:a carefully planned [[{{Synchronization}} Master-Slave binding spell]], as well as the revelation of a hidden 8th card,]] to convince her to temporarily call a truce.
* EnemyMine: Teams up with Team Illya in ''3rei'', [[spoiler:where they have to rescue Miyu in the alternate world ruled by the Ainsworths]].
* FightsLikeANormal: Unlike traditional mages like Luvia or Rin, the most magecraft we see from Bazett is her empowering herself with runes and utilizing her Mystic Code. Most of her fights are won by punching out the opposition. Despite that, she was the one who beat the Archer and Lancer cards without outside assistance.
* TheJuggernaut: Just about every opponent she's faced ([[UpToEleven even Gilgamesh!]]) has been unable to do jack against her unstoppable fighting style. That is, until Darius enters the scene and flattens her, Chloe and Illya without much effort.
* LaserGuidedKarma: She goes broke from having to pay for destroying Luvia's manor and is forced to take odd jobs to pay up.
* {{Leitmotif}}: She has her own unique battle theme, which is absent from the official OST.
* {{Synchronization}}: Gets subjected to [[spoiler:the same Master-Slave binding spell that Rin used on Chloe to tie her to Illya]].Though she claims it doesn't stop her -- she is still ready to just beat her half to death, while her own stamina would keep her conscious. Later, she found a mage who can cancel such magic and had the curse removed.

!The von Einzbern household
[[folder:Shirou Emiya]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/NoriakiSugiyama (Japanese), Patrick Poole (English)

Illya's much older foster brother, who goes to the high school that Illya's own school is a subsidary of. He was taken in by Kiritsugu after his own family died due to unspecified circumstances.
* AccidentalPervert: Seems to be a very usual thing for him. Even to the point that Rin and Luvia lampshade if he's a H-anime protagonist.
* ChickMagnet: Even as a supporting character, Shirou ''still'' manages to attract the attentions of Illya, Chloe, Miyu, Rin, Luvia and Sakura.
** ButtMonkey: ... However this just gets him into trouble and more than a little pain, all played for laughs of course.
* DemotedToExtra: He was the protagonist in the original ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Here, he only has minor appearances, and has no idea about Illya's magical girl activities.
* HomoEroticSubtext: With Issei, but mostly on Issei's side. This has been used by Mimi and Suzuka as material for BL doujins.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Shirou seems to be unaware of the Mage Association-related shenanigans the people around him are involved in, especially his family.
* NiceGuy: The main reason why girls flock to him.
* NomDeMom: GenderInverted. He takes Kiritsugu's last name "Emiya" despite technically being adopted into the von Einzbern family. The reasons behind this are never explained.
* ObliviousToLove: Despite being a chick magnet, he has ''no'' idea that those girls like him.
* SupremeChef: A fact that annoys Sella to no end.
* WhenYouComingHomeDad:
-->'''Shirou''': I wish dad would come home soon.
-->'''Leysritt''': You miss your papa?
-->'''Shirou''': No. [[TheOneGuy The ratio of men to women is a problem.]]

[[folder:Sella and Leysritt]]
->'''Voiced by''': Haruhi Terada (Sella) and Miho Miyagawa (Leysritt) (Japanese), Beth Lazarou (Sella) and Meaghan Avocato (Leysritt) (English)

The von Einzbern family maids, who accompanied their mistress Irisviel to Japan after she married Kiritsugu. They are also sisters, with Sella being the more serious and responsible of the pair, while Leysritt is content to just lounge about the house after she does her daily duties.

[[spoiler:As servants of the von Einzberns, they know perfectly well about Illya's role in the aborted Grail War ritual, and Sella in particular is constantly worried that Illya has secretly gotten herself in some sort of trouble. Her concern is VERY merited.]]
* ACupAngst: Sella is... ''sensitive''... about how, despite being sisters, Leys is ''much'' more well-endowed than her.
* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: When [[{{Jerkass}} Iri]] forces Sella to dress provocatively and give Shirou "do you want dinner, bath, or me?" speech, [[ChasteHero he]] [[NiceGuy naturally]] chooses "dinner". Sella proceeds to beat him up for that, calling him "good for nothing".
* BerserkButton: There are several sure-fire ways to tick off Sella: comment on her weight, comment on her lack of endowments, and pre-emptively finish her housework despite it being her turn to do so.
* LazyBum: Leysritt is pretty lazy, usually watching tv and eating snacks.
* {{Meido}}: Though in this incarnation it's not apparent, due to the fact that they don't use their uniforms anymore. The one time that Sella does appear in the uniform, Illya comments that it's not cute at all and therefore doesn't like it. Sella is actually quite sad about that.
* SiblingYinYang: Sella is hard working and strict, while Leysritt is laid-back but lazy.
* StayInTheKitchen: Inversion. Sella wants Shirou out of it.
* WeightWoe: Though you wouldn't see it at first glance, Sella has a recurring weight problem. One of the extra chapters even focuses on her efforts to ''lose'' some of that extra weight... to no avail.
* WomanChild: Leysritt would order and watch magical girl anime with Illya.

[[folder:Irisviel von Einzbern]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/SayakaOhara (Japanese), Maggie Flecknoe (English)

Illya's mother, and the de-facto head of the von Einzbern family. Iriviel is often away from home, accompanying her husband Kiritsugu in his "work" around the world, and leaves the care of the house to her maids. ''Unlike'' Kiritsugu, Iri makes it a point to drop by and check on the family every so often.
* AbusiveParents: For comic relief. Iri hits Illya when she annoys her with questions about her secret powers at the end of the first season and in 2wei [[spoiler: pulls off a giant fist made out of strings to silence Chloe after Chloe almost attacked Iri. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Then she proceeds to do the same with Illya just because.]]]]
* CloudCuckooLander: Illya describes her as doing based on what mood strikes her.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Like in ''LightNovel/FateZero''. Combines this with DynamicEntry.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: All of Illya's female friends from school are disturbingly attracted to Illya's mom, to the point most of them ask for "souvenir photos" when Iri gets pulled into modelling some wedding dresses during a theme park visit.
* HappilyMarried: With Kiritsugu.
* HiddenDepths: Iri, while well-meaning, is generally seen by both her children as flighty, spontaenous, and impulsive. As her arrival in the first "season" and 2wei shows however, Iri is ''very'' perceptive and is often on-the-button with regards to Illya's problems.
* [[GiveHimANormalLife Give Her a Normal Life]]: [[spoiler:She and Kiritsugu seal Illya's memories as the Grail to give her a normal life.]]
* AGodAmI: PlayedForLaughs but when she draw up the family hierachy she made herself god tier.
* ImpoverishedPatrician: It's easy to forget that, in the mainline Fate series, the von Einzberns were considered both nobility and a pre-eminent, if secretive, Mage family. Here though? Your typical middle-class family, with Iri herself as a supportive wife. Irisviel isn't in the least bothered by this though... maybe. She ''does'' make fun of the Edelfelt mansion getting demolished in 2wei for example.
* LastOfHerKind: As she reveals in 2wei, Iri and Illya are the last of the von Einzberns left alive.
* MomentKiller: A walking example. Illya even notes the atmosphere is ruined whenever Iri appears.
* {{Troll}}: Considering the above comical abuse she does towards her daughters and getting Sella and Leysritt to strip (while feeling good about it), then dressing them up in sexier versions of their normal maid attire, she comes off as this. Possible MythologyGag as she's also like this in the Einzbern Consultation Rooms from ''LightNovel/FateZero'' [[spoiler: where Iri's comedic sociopathy comes from her being Grail-possessed.]]
* WalkingTheEarth: She's rarely at home, instead spending a lot of time with her husband on travels.
* [[WouldHurtAChild Would Hit Her Child]]: Sometimes when Illya or Chloe aren't behaving.
* WhereIWasBornAndRazed: It's implied in ''2wei!'' that she and Kiritsugu killed most of her family so that Illya wouldn't be forced into being a Grail Conduit.

!Homurahara Elementary School
[[folder:In General]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: They are generally unaware of Illya's life as a magic girl, no matter how many other people around Illya start to realize what's going on.
* SacredFirstKiss: [[spoiler:Chloe]] steals the first kisses of ALL of them (except Caren), which prompts incredibly angry reactions towards Illya by accident (since the two look alike).
* ShooOutTheClowns: It often gets more serious if they are not in the scene.
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Four Girls]]: The main purpose of Illya's classmates is to support the fact that Illya in Prisma Illya has had a happy and normal life.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Despite being Japanese, Illya's friends don't exactly have naturally-occuring hair colors. Nanaki's is pink for example, Suzuka's is a dark teal, and Mimi's is an almost black dark green. Tatsuko's strawberry blonde can happen in real-life, but isn't endemic to Japanese in general.

[[folder:Mimi Katsura]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/SatomiSato (Japanese), Creator/BrittneyKarbowski (English)

The quiet one and so-called honor student of the group. Despite her reputation as a goody two-shoes, her secret hobby is writing homoerotic novels, the knowledge of which Suzuka quickly takes advantage of. This in turn ''breaks'' Mimi's perception on relationships, to the point that she considers yuri or BL pairings as perfectly normal in real life.

Compared to her friends, she's the only one who's an older sibling rather than a younger one.
* CoolBigSister: She has been shown to be a nice big sister. She even made cake for her little brother.
* CovertPervert: Turns out she was always very perverted under her kindness, it just took Suzuka to release it.
* GenericGirl: A running gag with her is that she has no presence.
* NiceGirl: She is very kind and considerate towards her goofy comrades.
* OutOfFocus: [[RunningGag Mimi has zero presence, and people like Ruby or Miyu tend to forget about her very easily.]]
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: When describing her appreciation of a BL novel Suzuka handed out to her, Mimi breaks into a long-winded speech that Illya lampshades as filled with terms that would require educational discretion (complete with steam noises [[SoundEffectsBleep just because]]). She eventually degenerates into excited gibberish that Chloe mistakes for Berserker's garbled shouts.
* YaoiFangirl: Because she can't seem to think of a good lesbian story writeup [[note]]Which is based on [[LoveTriangle her perception]] of Illya, Miyu and Chloe's relationship[[/note]], she settles for gender bendering the characters into males. This in turn attracts the attention of resident BL writer Suzuka, who uses her script for a comic booth and even forces poor Mimi to host it. Afterwards, Mimi's transformation was complete, something that terrifies even Suzuka.
* YuriFan: Goes both ways, as she thinks homosexual relationships are fine and totally ships the supposed love triangle between Illya, Miyu and Chloe.

[[folder:Tatsuko Gakumazawa]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/EmiriKatou (Japanese), Creator/EmilyNeves (English)

The goofball of the group of friends, and the only daughter of the Gakumazawa dojo. Tatsuko's thought patterns can be very hard to understand at times.
* BigBrotherAttraction: She wanted to have her SacredFirstKiss with her big brother (though since she has two, it's not clear which one). Comparisons to Illya follow immediatly.
* ButNotTooForeign: Her mother has the very un-Japanese given name of "Stella", which, coupled with her blonde hair, might actually imply that she is mixed race.
* CloudCuckooLander: Wears a swimsuit to gym class even though they aren't going swimming, among many other things.
* LethalChef: Among other things, adds meat spices (she wanted to make hamburgers!) and breathmints (It adds flavor!) to cake batter.
* MadeOfIron: She constantly get sent flying into the air without any injury. She once even got hit by a ''car'' and was fine afterwords.
* OdangoHair

[[folder:Nanaki Moriyama]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MariyaIse (Japanese), Juliet Simmons (English)

The most "normal" among Illya's friends, and seems to straddle a midpoint between Tatsuko's lunacy and Mimi's good-girl role. Despite this she can be as goofy as the rest of them. Her older sister Nanami is the schoolmate of Illya's older brother Shirou.
* [[BigBrotherWorship Big Sister Worship]]: Adores her older sister, which is why she's noticeably distressed when said sister is traumatized by a bad encounter with her "twintailed" and "gold drilled" schoolmates (Rin and Luvia, respectively).
* {{Badass}}: She learned and mastered Tatsuko's family's martial arts after two demonstrations. And even beat up the master easily.
* EyesAlwaysClosed: She has ''never'' opened her eyes so far.
* GirlishPigtails
* NumericalThemeNaming: Both she and her sister have "nana" (the number 7) as part of their given names.

[[folder:Suzuka Kurihara]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KanaeIto (Japanese), Creator/NancyNovotny (English)

Despite being the most reasonable-looking member of Illya's friends, Suzuka is as much a goofball is the rest of them, but she hides this fact really ''really'' well. This class rep demeanour also hides behind it a raging fujoshi, but thankfully she keeps these urges in check while at school.
* HairDecorations: A pair of hairpins on her bangs.
* {{Meganekko}}
* {{Otaku}}: Likely due to her older sister being a doujin artist.
** YaoiFangirl: ''The'' reason for Mimi "coming out". Even she's bothered by the (BL-loving) monster she's inadvertedly created.

[[folder:Taiga Fujimura]]
'''Voiced by''': Creator/MikiIto (Japanese)

Illya's class teacher.
* AnimalMotifs: It's still tigers.
* GenkiGirl: Adult version.
* SenseiChan: She plays this dead straight in this series, unlike in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' where she's immature at home but competent as a teacher.

[[folder:Caren Ortensia]]
'''Voiced by''': Creator/AmiKoshimizu (Japanese)

Illya's school nurse, who has a very sadistic side. [[spoiler: Though like in the main universe she is an agent of the Church. She was sent to Fuyuki to observe, and if necessary, act as a backup, in case the recovery of the class cards went south.]]
* BlessedWithSuck: Caren's body starts to bleed in the presence of evil spirits. The church regularly employs her as a radar due to this ability.
* ButNotTooForeign: [[spoiler: Half-Japanese, Half-Italian.]]
* ChildHater: The sound of happy children hurts her ears. In fact, she chose to work as a school nurse so she'd only see them when they were sick or hurt.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DrJerk: She is disappointed if your injuries are minor and she enjoys getting a close look at children that get injured.
* EmotionlessGirl: Perhaps bored is a better word, as she almost only drinks tea or observes.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: When wearing her [[spoiler: Church uniform]] she intentionally doesn't wear a skirt. Because it's fashion.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Caren or Karen. Also Hortensia and Ortensia. She's probably Italian though, so Ortensia is more likely.

!The Cards
[[folder:In General]]
The physical form and corrupted manifestations of the Class Cards. Each one represents the Heroic Spirit of their source.
!!Tropes Associated with all of the Cards:
* BadAss: Justified. With some exceptions, it's practically a requirement for becoming a Heroic Spirit, since most must become known for something, like a legend or a story.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: Every Heroic Spirit appears as an Alter variant.
* MirrorWorld: Each card exists in an alternate plane that can be entered using the Kaleidosticks.
* PublicDomainCharacter

A woman whose eyes covered by a visor who wields a chained spike that can be extended and retracted. She is the first Card faced by Illya and Rin.

Her only notable ability is her high speed, allowing her to dodge Illya's attacks.
* FragileSpeedster: She has no armor, and must rely on her speed to avoid getting hit.
* NonindicativeName: Her class card is Rider, but she spends her entire battle on-foot. She is never actually shown riding anything.
* WaveMotionGun: Bellerophon can be fired off as one. She attempts to use it before [[spoiler:being pierced in the heart by Gae Bolg]].

A mage who wears a hooded cape and carries a staff. She is the second Card fought by Illya's group.

She can fire massive barrages of magical artillery, in addition to several other magic-based attacks.
* AntiMagic: Her Rule breaker. [[spoiler:It was able to show Julian after he was struck by it]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Julian later took the card and destroyed it.]]
* MoreDakka
* ShockAndAwe
* SquishyWizard: She is vulnerable without her shields.
* TeleportersAndTransporters

The manifestation of the Saber Card. She is clad in black armor and carries a black sword. She shares a plane with Caster, and is fought immediately by Illya's party after the former is defeated.

She is covered within a dense mist of mana that protects her from magical attacks. Her sword is capable of firing waves of black energy.
* AntiMagic: She has very resistance to magic, owing to her class. She is also covered by a mana barrier that deflects spells.
* BlackSwordsAreBetter: She wields a red-and-black version of Excalibur.
* MightyGlacier: She's a fair bit slower than Berserker and Rider, but she is extremely resistant against magical attacks and her [[SwordBeam sword beams]] can ignore magical protections.
* MythologyGag: She is directly based on [[BreakoutVillain Saber Alter]].
* SwordBeam: Her sword, Excalibur, can fire them.
* WakeUpCallBoss
* [[WaveMotionGun Wave Motion Sword]]: Excalibur's actual ability. The [[SwordBeam Excaliblasts]] are weaker versions of the normal ability.

The fourth Card fought by Illya's group. The Assassin Card is split up between many different individual Assassins, but each share the same skull-shaped mask.

Other than its overwhelming numbers and its usage of poisoned darts, the Assassin Card doesn't seem to have any significant abilities.
* CompositeCharacter: A combination between [[LightNovel/FateZero Zero Assasin]] and [[spoiler:[[VisualNovel/FateStayNight True Assassin]]]].
* PoisonedWeapons: His darts.
* SelfDuplication: He can create duplicates of himself through his Noble Phantasm. [[spoiler:Illya gains the same ability when she installs the Assassin Card.]]
* StealthMaster
* WeakButSkilled: [[spoiler:Chloe epscially states the card is so weak, that Illya is stronger in her normal state then having the card installed. But even so, its stealth's abilities have come in handy]]
* ZergRush: Attacks with dozens of weak "copies" of itself.

The manifestation of the Berserker Card and the last Card fought. He is a hulking man who fights without a weapon.

His Noble Phantasm grants him the power to resurrect and restore his injuries after being killed, gaining immunity to what killed him in the process.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: The strongest and final opponent the protagonists battle in the first season.
* LightningBruiser: He's the strongest Heroic Spirit, as well as one of the fastest. Although he's still insane, he is still extremely dangerous.
* ResurrectiveImmortality: His noble phantasm provides him a stock of lives that allows him to resurrect himself every time he dies, [[ItOnlyWorksOnce gaining immunity to what killed him in the process]].
* TheBerserker
* TransformationIsAFreeAction: Defies it. He charges at straight [[spoiler:Miyu while she channels the Saber card.]]

A bowman clad in red who is blindfolded by a red cloth. He only makes an appearance in a flashback in 2wei.

He has the ability to create swords and he has a bow that can fire explosive arrows.
* BowAndSwordInAccord: He uses his bow against Bazett before engaging her in melee combat.
* DualWielding: Wields two curved blades
* ImprobableAimingSkills: He can fire his bow with near perfect accuracy... while falling.
* MythologyGag: He looks a lot like [[spoiler:[[VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia Avenger]].]]
* NonindicativeName: His class card is Archer, but he has the power to manifest swords out of thin air.
* StormOfBlades: One of his attacks involves creating several swords and firing them at his target.
* SpontaneousWeaponCreation: He can create swords out of thin air.
* TrickArrow: As shown with [[spoiler:Chloe]] and [[spoiler:Bazett's flashback]], the arrows that Archer fire explode.
* TheUnfought: Like Lancer, he's killed off-screen by [[spoiler:Bazett]] before the story starts.

One of the two cards defeated before the original series began. Like Archer, Lancer only makes an appearance in a flashback.

His Noble Phantasm is a red spear named Gae Bolg.
* BladeOnAStick: His Noble Phantasm is a spear named Gae Bolg.
* MythologyGag: He resembles his ''Anime/FatePrototype'' self, with a fur collar to emphasize being more of a hunter than a combatant. Also literally as [[spoiler: his powerset includes becoming a werewolf, since he is the "dog of Chulainn"]]
* TheUnfought: He's killed off-screen by [[spoiler:Bazett]] before the series even begins.

[[folder:The Eighth Card (SPOILER)]]

The King of Heroes... not quite as you may remember him from previous Fate installments. He initially shows up as yet another corrupted servant seeking the Holy Grail... only to be defeated by Illya and left in a child form.

He becomes one of Illya's main allies in [=3rei=], seemingly out of annoyance for the Ainsworth's stealing most of his treasury.

His Class Card is Archer.
* AllYourPowersCombined: As always, he brings Gate of Babylon with him. And with it, every Noble Phantasm that originated on Gaia.
* {{Badass}}: He's the same ol' Gilgamesh from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', although because his madness cancels out his arrogance, he gets to show off extreme displays of power throughout his fights.
** BadassAdorable: He's still incredibly powerful even after being reduced to a cute kid, going toe-to-toe with numerous Ainsworth servants and being noticeably less arrogant.
* BerserkButton: Like ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', use his Noble Phantasms against him and he will let you know how angry he is.
* {{BFS}}: He holds a MASSIVE sword in his vault. Illya manages to break it and it remains broken after its second appearance. Naturally, as he owns every weapon ever comprehended by man and then some, he has a figuratively infinite number of giant swords.
* CurbStompBattle: His very first appearance, to ''everyone''.
* DemonicPossession: Gilgamesh explains due to his ego, if someone doesn't use his card correctly when installing it, the card can take that person over. [[spoiler:This nearly happened to Miyu]]
* EarthShatteringKaboom: Ea, the only known Anti-World Noble Phantasm [[spoiler: with which he blows up the Mirror World]]. Keep in mind that it's world as in the concept and not specifically a planet buster (though it is perfectly capable of doing so).
* EasilyForgiven: Thanks to his A+ Charisma, he convinces Illya to forgive him for trying to kill them all.
* EmpathicWeapon: His ego is so strong that his card takes over the mind of the user if they aren't using it correctly.
* EvilLaugh: Seemingly the one remnant of his personality.
* FatalFlaw: Averted. Due to his madness, he is finally able to overlook his pride and thus, [[OhCrap goes all-out.]]
** Also averted by his younger self. He uses the entirety of his armory rather than just spamming the usual StormOfBlades.
* HealingFactor: Unlike his other incarnations, this one has a counter to people who manage to charge through his attacks and hit him.
* HeelFaceTurn: After his black half is destroyed, his younger self decides to join Illya out of boredom.
* HypocriticalHumor:
** ''Dares'' complain when Illya reminds him that he lost to her, because the winner shouldn't rub their victory in the loser's face. See every single one of his other appearances.
** When he tells Angelica to be less cocky when using his card.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: While significantly less egotistic than the F/SN version. He hints a few times how he feels that he's a shadow of his former self that doesn't measure up to his legend.
* {{Irony}}: He [[spoiler:kills Illya in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' by ripping out her heart]]; here, Bazett does this to him instead, although the latter doesn't stick.
* ItAmusedMe: Joins Illya in her quest to save Miyu because he's bored and taking on the creators of the Holy Grail War sounds "fun". [[spoiler: Tells said Julian, he needs Ilya to grant his wish because he wants to see how things play out.]]
* OptOut: Once he got his card back, he decided to see where things were going from the sidelines.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: To a whole new level from usual. He obliterates the Mirror World.
* PowerLimiter: His full strength hasn't been used since his card is being used in the other world.
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler:Leaves the group after he steals back his card, expressing amusement at how Julian is going to use his wish to save the world.]]
* StormOfBlades: Gate of Babylon, as usual.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: [[spoiler:He doesn't take it well when Enkidu is used against him.]]
--> [[spoiler:'''Gilgamesh''': So, it turns out that I laugh when I'm angry. Don't go using my ''friend'' as you please, MONGREL!]]
* TooKinkyToTorture: He finds it amusing.
* TookALevelInKindness: Almost literally, after his black half is destroyed.
* WalkingSpoiler: Not only does he show up very late into ''2wei'' as the final opponent, but he also becomes a protagonist in ''3rei'', accompanying Illya in her quest to save Miyu from the Ainsworths.
* WhatTheHellHero: Subverted. It ''looks'' like he's calling Illya out on her carelessness and willingness to lead people into a suicidal quest...but it turns out he's listing the reasons why it sounds fun.
* WorthyOpponent: Decides that Illya is worthy of facing Enuma Elish when she combines the two wands and risks her own death for her friends.

!New Fuyuki City (SPOILERS)
A mysterious girl from Miyu's world, she seeks to defeat the Ainsworth family, but remembers nothing else.
* AmnesiacHero: Her memories start at when she first met Illya and her goal of destroying the Ainsworths.
* CloudCuckoolander: She has no sense of common sense at all.
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror
* GenkiGirl
* HateAtFirstSight: She hated Erika the moment she saw her. [[spoiler:Possibly because she subconsciously realized that Erika is an Ainsworth.]]
* HealingFactor: Even after receiving numerous fatal attacks [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill that would count as overkill]], she is just fine a few hours later.
* InexplicablyAwesome: Illya and company meet her without the slightest clue about her identity, yet she saves the the party from the Ainsworths on a whim more than once, all while being wishy washy. [[spoiler:According to Erika after turning into a fake Grail, she is the world's "Truth" that passes judgement on counterfeits.]]
* NighInvulnerability: Beatrice's Mjöllnir should have vaporized Tanaka, but Tanaka's body is completely intact.
* PlayingWithFire: Shatters Darius's ice-based barrier with a ridiculously powerful blast of heat.
* ShapeshifterWeapon: [[spoiler:She can detach her arm and turn it into a sword that's powerful enough to vaporize the Heroic Spirits generated by Erika's Grail form as well as harm her.]]
* ThirdPersonPerson

[[folder:Ramen shop owner]]
!!Kirei Kotomine
The proprietor of a ramen shop seemingly specializing in [[MythologyGag hellishly spicy Mapo tofu]], and the only store seemingly still open in the mostly-abandoned Fuyuki city. ''Definitely'' knows more than he first lets on about the circumstances surrounding the city's abandonment.
* AdamSmithHatesYourGuts: The [[MythologyGag hellishly spicy Mapo tofu]] he sells is, as Illya puts it, a total rip-off.
* ChekhovsGunman: It's only a matter of time before he is more involved in the plot. [[spoiler:He is. He knows Kiritsugu as the Magus Killer.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: His reaction when the spell around the Ainsworths' mansion is dispelled, whether or not he'll come back later is impossible to tell right now
* WeSellEverything: {{Inverted|Trope}}. He only sells [[MythologyGag hellishly spicy Mapo tofu and other ''very'' spicy food]].

[[folder:Miyu's brother]]
!!Alternate Shirou Emiya
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/NoriakiSugiyama

Miyu's elder brother. He went on a crusade against the Ainsworths on his own and sent Miyu to Illya's world to let her get away from them. He looks just like Shirou from Illya's universe, [[ContinuityNod but has a few strands of white hair and some brown patches of skin]] from overusing his Projection magecraft.

He is the original wielder of the Archer Card.
* AlternateSelf: He's a parallel version of Shirou Emiya, Illya's adopted older brother in her universe.
* AlternateUniverseReedRichardsIsAwesome: Miyu's brother is a lot more like his [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight original incarnation]] than Illya's more-or-less normal brother. He can even use his iconic magecraft, Projection. [[spoiler:He can also invoke his reality marble, Unlimited Blade Works.]]
* AntiHero: He has no problem dooming the entire world if it means protecting his sister Miyu.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: His fight against Angelica shows that he's a heavy strategist, planning moves ahead of his opponent and keeping track of his openings.
-->'''Shirou:''' Sharpen you senses to their utmost. A single move can prove fatal. A single moment can spell death. Kill off any needless thoughts. The only thing we should be seeing for now is the boundary between life and death. '''Think ten steps ahead, and seize even five more seconds of survival!'''
* {{Badass}}: He can trace noble phantasms like [[spoiler:Nine Lives, Rho Aias, and Ig Alima]]. WordOfGod says he learned these from fighting the corrupted Heroic Spirits under Julian's control.
* BadassAdorable: [[spoiler: Unlike mainstream Shirou, Kiritsugu taught him magecraft properly and allowed Shirou to accompany him on his many excursions, including the job where they rescued Miyu.]]
* BadassBoast:
-->'''Shirou:''' If you're willing to kill one person for the sake of the greater good then I'm willing to accept all the evil that comes with stopping you. [[ContinuityNod Do you have enough resolve, champion of justice?]]
* BadassInDistress: He is the one who freed Miyu from her captors in the past, which implies [[{{Badass}} badassery]]. And he is currently their prisoner, getting captured in the process of doing it. [[spoiler:Later, Gilgamesh breaks him out.]]
* {{BFS}}: The first two weapons he's shown projecting are [[spoiler:Nine Lives and Ig-Alima.]]
* BigBrotherInstinct: He's going to stop the Ainsworths' even if it means [[spoiler:dooming humanity]] just to save his sister.
* DeflectorShields: He has access to a seven petaled shield named Rho Aias. He uses it to NoSell a RainOfArrows fired from muddied Heroic Spirits.
* {{Determinator}}: He's Shirou, of course he's this.
* TheDreaded: Even Angelica admits that the Archer Card and Shirou are dangerous.
* DualWielding: He wields Kanshou and Bakuya.
* {{Expy}}: He's basically Shirou from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'''s "Heaven's Feel" route (with his abilities from the "Unlimited Blade Works" route thrown in), inserted into ''Prisma Illya's'' continuity.
* TheGadfly: [[spoiler:Back in the peaceful days, Shirou called Julian a siscon to get a reaction out of him, [[HypocriticalHumor in spite of his own relationship with Miyu.]]]]
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Before the story began, he took on the Ainsworths and somehow managed to send Miyu to Illya's universe. From the small details provided, he's held off or beaten Angelica before and he's used [[spoiler:Unlimited Blade Works]] at least once.
* HeroicRROD: While fighting Angelica, his heavy usage of Projection takes its toll after he tries [[spoiler:and fails to invoke his reality marble]], leaving him vulnerable to her StormOfBlades.
* InSpiteOfANail: Despite the Fourth Holy Grail War not happening in his universe, he still ends up in an accident that kills his family, is saved and then adopted by Kiritsugu.
* PromotionToParent: He takes over raising Miyu after Kiritsugu dies.
* RedHeadedHero: A red head on a one-man crusade to free his sister from the Ainsworths.
* SatelliteCharacter: Spends the first half of ''[=3rei=]'' giving the heroes info on Miyu's location and being the cause of Miyu's original escape to Illya's world. [[spoiler:Subverted when he's freed by Gilgamesh]]
* SpamAttack: He uses [[spoiler:Nine Lives]] to kill several muddied Heroic Spirits.
* SpontaneousWeaponCreation: He has access to Projection, the same type of magecraft that the Archer card grants.
* StormOfBlades: He counters Angelica's StormOfBlades by launching his own.
* TheWorfEffect: After killing a large number of Heroic Spirits and defeating Angelica with Chloe's help, something no one else in Illya's group could accomplish. He gets severely injured by Sakura, showing just how dangerous she is.

[[folder:Miyu's father]]
!!Alternate Kiritsugu Emiya

Shirou's adopted father who rescued him from an accident and [[TheMentor mentored him]] in magecraft and in being a [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight hero of justice.]]. He had a dream of [[LightNovel/FateZero creating a world without conflict, and would use any means to accomplish it.]] This led him and Shirou to take great interest in the Children of God.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Unlike his ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' counterpart, he retains [[TheNeedsOfTheMany his ideals]] to WellIntentionedExtremist levels (complete with FaceFramedInShadow) even after adopting Shirou. As a result, when he decides to adopt Miyu, he does so to use her as a tool to save the human race, rather than out of affection.
** Downplayed in that it only lasts a single chapter. He gets a more sympathetic final talk with Shirou in chapter 32 of 3rei where he passes his ideals of heroism to Shirou.
* DeathByOriginStory: He died when Shirou and Miyu were young.
* FamedInStory/RedBaron: If Kotomine's to be believed, he was apparently notorious enough on the magic side to be known as the [[Literature/FateZero "Magus Killer".]]
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: Like in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', this version of Kiritsugu died slowly over the years from sickness. Whether he contracted it from the same source is unknown.

!The Ainsworths
[[folder:In General]]
* AlternateUniverse: Seem to be Miyu's verse equivalents to the Einzberns.
* AntiVillain: Angelica and Darius outright state their goal is to save the world even if a few people need to be sacrificed.
* BigBad: Seem to be this in 3rei.
* SpaceMaster: The Ainsworth family's magecraft is Flash Air, a type of displacement magecraft. It can be used something as simple as grabbing things from a distance or creating mini-portals to something like morphing a mountain into a castle and hiding massive objects in plain sight.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Alternatively romanized as "Einsworth/Einzworth", to stress the fact that they are AlternateUniverse counterparts of the Einzberns.

One of the Ainsworths' dolls sent along with Beatrice to retrieve Miyu and guard The Ainsworth estate.

She wields an Archer Card assigned to the Heroic Spirit Gilgamesh.
* BoobsOfSteel: Has the largest bust of any female shown in the manga and is able to channel ''Gilgamesh''[='=]s power, even fighting the latter to a standstill for the majority of their duel.
* CombatPragmatist: She will change methods if something doesn't work.
* CoolBigSis: She acts as one to Erika, making and fixing her stuffed animals.
* DarkActionGirl: She's a shining example in that she's ruthless and very straight to the point, making her extremely efficient compared to the rest of the cast.
* TheHeavy: She's actually responsible for much of the game-changing plot twists in ''3rei'', mainly due to her ability to [[spoiler:extract souls from their original body and putting emotionless dummies instead, which she does to Illya, Rin and Luvia]].
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Not of her own choice. But after her defeat and Gilgamesh taking his card back, the Ainsworths abandoned her. She followed the protagonists' group as she had no where else to go.]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded: Invokes this midway through her fight against [[spoiler:Gilgamesh]] when she claims she has not yet used her Card to its full potential. However, they are interrupted by Beatrice barging in with her own [[CurbStompBattle ''fight'']] against [[spoiler:Caster!Illya.]]
* SpaceMaster: She can use the Ainsworth's magecraft to deadly efficency as shown in her fights against Gilgamesh and Shirou and Chloe.
* StormOfBlades: By installing Gilgamesh's Archer card on herself, she gains the hero's signature Gate of Babylon, allowing her to fire near-unlimited amounts of weapons at her opponents. [[spoiler:Gilgamesh successfully gains some of his treasures back during his fight with Angelica.]]

[[folder:Beatrice [=FlowerChild=]]]
One of the Ainswroth's dolls.

She is the user of a Berserker Card assigned to the Heroic Spirit Thor.
* AxCrazy: Beatrice has a very sadistic streak when fighting against Illya, and has no remorse in [[spoiler:[[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown pummelling her even after Illya lost the fight]].]]
* BoltOfDivineRetribution: The Thor Card can make these.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: A powerful doll wielding the power of the Berserker card who also happens to be an idol {{Otaku}}. [[spoiler:Turns out the idol is her master, but still an otaku.]]
* CombatSadomasochist: OH so very much.
* CurbstompBattle: As part of establishing the Ainsworth dolls' dominance over the protagonists, she mops the floor with her Berserker card against [[spoiler:Caster!Illya.]]
* DropTheHammer: Enjoys using the Thor Card, which grants her all the powers of the Norse god, as well as a massive hammer.
* ElegantGothicLolita: Dresses as such when not using her Thor Card.
* {{Sadist}}: She openly enjoys hurting her opponents
* SlasherSmile: A very noticable one in nearly all of her fight scenes.
* {{Tsundere}}: [[ParodiedTrope Parodied]] when she drools over a someone she names "Julian".
--> '''Beatrice''': "N... Not that I really... missed you or anything!... Ohhhhhh! Julian-tan's tough guy act is so moeeeeee!"
--> '''Illya''': "What the hell is she doing?"
* UnknownRival: Subversion. She absolutely hates the [[spoiler:Archer!Emiya Card's wielder]]. The subversion is that its current holder, [[spoiler:Chloe]], is someone else entirely, and neither of them have met face to face. The only thing we know is, she's fought against the previous user, whom was implied to use it as a sniper.

[[folder:Darius Ainsworth]]
!!Darius Ainsworth [[spoiler:(Julian Ainsworth)]]
Head of the Ainsworth clan; the "true enemy" according to Gil. He seeks to use Miyu to complete his "legend" and save his Earth from a ''Literature/AngelNotes''-esque apocalypse. [[spoiler:He is in actuality Julian Ainsworth, Darius' son who took his father's place after Darius' untimely death.]]
* AlternateSelf: [[spoiler: Julian is the alternate counterpart to Issei Ryoudou, taking his place as Shirou's best friend and student council president.]]
* AnIcePerson: Is able to erect a massive ice dome to prevent Chloe and Bazett from interrupting his conversation with Illya. [[spoiler:That is, until Tanaka shatters it with a powerful blast of heat.]]
* {{Badass}}: From just his introductory fight, he's able to repel every attack thrown at him, be it Chloe and Bazett's strikes, or even [[spoiler:Illya's Saber Install,]] and flattens everyone with just a single command.
* BareHandedBladeBlock: Performs one against [[spoiler:Saber Install's Excalibur,]] with the excuse that it would hurt Erika if swung around recklessly.
* BigBad: He's the Head of the Ainsworth Family and the person responsible for the appearance of the servant cards earlier in the story [[spoiler:and the handling Miyu as the alternate universe's Grail]].
* CardCarryingVillain: Presents himself to Illya as the Demon King who needs to be taken down.
* DeadPersonImpersonation: After Illya strikes him with Rule Breaker, it's revealed that [[spoiler:the actual Darius had died sometime before 3rei. The current Darius is actually his son Julian, using magic to impersonate his appearance.]]
* FaceFramedInShadow: Used to great effect during his appearances just to show how sinister his character is.
* FauxAffablyEvil: At first he appears to genuinely care for Erika, and holds back Angelica and Beatrice from killing the cast, but at the same time he's totally unrepentant about his abuse of Miyu and was willing to kill Tanaka just for being someone he didn't know about. Then its revealed he regularly [[AbusiveParent beats up]] Erika, and is generally the reason she is so [[CreepyChild ill adjusted]] she doesn't understand why Miyu would cry over Illya having her soul ripped out.
* FinalBossPreview: Shows up to pick up Erika and show Team Illya ''exactly'' what kind of power they're trying to challenge.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: PlayedForLaughs, as he comments how the air is getting thinner while his ice barrier is still up and he is starting to freeze along with his daughter.
* KingIncognito: Visits team Illya after she befriends Erika. No one learns about his identity until prompted to, after which he engages Illya in a fight.
* LargeHam: He breaks into a bombastic speech when asserting Illya's motives. [[ Check this out.]]
* NightmareFace: Occasionally flares creepy expressions when interacting with Illya. Also has when he beats up Erika.
* PerpetualFrowner: After the reveal. Julian is always has a frown on his face.
%%* SpaceMaster
* VisionaryVillain: Apparently Darius ''wants to save the world'', specifically making it so that humanity would survive the eventual depletion of Mana on Earth, the latter scenario suspiciously similar to the situation in AngelNotes. Hmm...

Darius's daughter.
* AnimalMotifs: Bats.
* CheerfulChild: She's quite the happy child but ....
* CreepyChild: ... She doesn't bit an eye at the idea of erasing someone's memories, or sealing their mind into a stuffed animal.
* {{Expy}}: Of CreepyChild Illya from the original ''VideoGame/FateStayNight''. [[spoiler:Complete with turning the object of her affection literally into a doll.]]
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Well it makes sense considering she's 7.
* UsefulNotes/JapaneseSiblingTerminology: Calls Illya "Illya-oneechan."

[[folder:The Ainsworth's Last Servant]]
A love crazed Sakura who is completely obsessed with Shirou.

She uses the power of the [[LightNovel/FateZero Lancelot Card]].
* AxeCrazy: Miyu calls her "broken" as soon as she hears her long {{Yandere}} rant.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Julian is able to put her under his control by impersonating Shirou and talking about mundane activities like her club.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Heavily implied when Shirou asks about her childhood.
-->'''Shirou''': As a kid... I just can't see it. What you were like back then... Sakura?
-->'''Sakura''': I don't.. enjoy remembering the past.
* HeroKiller: Grievously injures Shirou upon introduction, leading the latter to warn Miyu she's no match for Sakura.
* NoSell: True to her Card, she can steal and master any of her enemies' Noble Phantasms, making her the perfect counter against Gilgamesh and Shirou.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Wears Lancelot's suit of armour except for the chestpiece, baring her midriff, cleavage and backside.
* {{Yandere}}: Goes on a long rant about how the alternate world's Shirou is hers and hers only; that she would be the only one to love him... and ''kill'' him.
