YMMV / Fate/Prototype

  • Base-Breaking Character: Fans either love or hate Manaka, there is no in-between. Either she's a badass and refreshingly fun Big Bad (and Villain Protagonist in Fragments) who spins around many typica tropes and whose child-like craziness makes quite the contrast with the usual angsty villainesses who need tragic reasons to ever turn to the bad side, or she's a stupid and flat Villain Sue without any qualities to compensate for how much of an asshole she is to anyone not named Saber and who gets away with way too many things.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
  • Fan-Preferred Couple:
    • Proto-Saber/Ayaka is popular enough. But some fans prefer Proto-Rider/Ayaka instead. That or with Proto-Lancer.
    • Proto-Saber/Proto-Archer is also well-liked. Although it's very much different from the dynamic that their FSN-Counterparts have.
    • From Fragments, some like pairing Archer with Assassin. His immunity to her poison makes him one of the few people who could get near her.
  • Ho Yay: With a Cast Full of Pretty Boys, who's even surprised?
  • No Yay: From Fragments, Assassin and Zombified-Tatsumi
  • The Scrappy: Paracelsus. While other Casters were indeed on the side of evil, the former Jumping Off the Slippery Slope one too many times made him just detestable. It doesn't help his case that he is not as over the top evil as Gilles, or as flamboyant as Shakespeare, making him less interesting or fun, and far easier to hate despite his very pretty looks.
