Trivia / Fate/Apocrypha

  • Fan Nickname:
    • "Darnicula" for the fusion between Darnic and Dracula/Vlad in his vampire form.
    • Frankenmoe.
    • Moedred.
    • Shiroumine for Shirou Kotomine. After his identity is revealed, he got the nickname Red Shirou, in a similar vein to Red Saber.
    • "Siegmonculus" for the Homunculus, as he gains the ability to transform into Siegfried's form and he takes on the name "Sieg".
    • Achilles, Karna and Atalanta has been dubbed "The AKA Team" by some fans for being Ensemble Darkhorses on the villain's side.
    • As a tribute to Kayneth "Fast Wheels" El-Melloi, Fiore got the nickname "Happy Wheels".
  • Jossed:
    • For a long time the fandom assumed that Mordred would be male, even though Mordred's gender was never explicitly stated in Fate/stay night. In this series, Mordred turns out to be female.
    • When Shirou Kotomine was introduced, many fans theorized that he was a Shirou from an alternate timeline who was raised by Kirei Kotomine, which is a very popular AU in fanworks. While he was Kotomine's adopted brother, this Shirou has no relation at all to Shirou Emiya; in fact, he's a completely different Shirou.
  • Marth Debuted in "Smash Bros.": The Apocrypha design for Jeanne d'Arc shows up in the anime adaptation of Fate/Zero.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The project was originally meant to be an online multiplayer game. Though it became a series of light novels instead, the original idea would later become the mobile game Fate/Grand Order.
    • The revival opted against using David, Kintoki, Benkei, and George, introducing new Servants instead.
    • Jeanne was going to be the Final Boss of the scrapped online game project.
    • Mordred's gender in Fate/stay night was never explicitly stated, but most fans assumed that Mordred would be male like in the original Arthurian legend. At first Nasu seemed to have decided that Mordred would be male, but apparently having two male characters look feminine, the other being Astolfo, was too much.
