This page lists characters from Fate/Apocrypha that do not fit in any of the previous categories. To head back to the main character index, go here.
Hyouma SagaraThe original Master of Assassin of Black, he tried to summon Jack the Ripper by re-enacting one of Jack's prostitute-killings using his live-in girlfriend Reika as the victim. Instead, Jack designates Reika as her master, crippling and eventually killing Sagara to give Reika control over his command seals.
- An Arm and a Leg + Facial Horror: Sagara is subjected to this when Jack slices off his lower jaw and hand (in order to keep him from using his Command Seals).
- Asshole Victim: While his intended sacrificial victim, Reika, isn't much of a saint herself, he is so much of a scumbag himself that his fate of being killed by the servant he tried to summon is pretty much well-deserved.
- Kick the Dog: His Establishing Character Moment has him trying to kill Reika, a girl he had mind-controlled with magecraft to be his lover.
- Laser-Guided Karma: He tried to use Reika as a Human Sacrifice to summon Jack the Ripper. Jack instead responds to Reika's desire to live, going on to cripple and ultimately kill Sagara at Reika's behest.
- Secret Identity: To the mundane world, he is a kind host by the name of "Hikaru". In actuality, he is a ruthlessly amoral magus.
- Disproportionate Retribution: When one of his students, Flat Escardos, asks to take his Mercury Maid out for a movie, Waver responds by multiplying his homework 20 times. However, this might actually be justified - Expanded Universe files show that after watching a certain movie with Flat, said maid, created from Volumen Hydrargyrum, started believing it was a killer robot from the future.
- Finger Poke of Doom: In the anime, he makes Flat settle down with a finger flick powerful enough to knock Flat out for a few seconds and leave the point of impact smoking, but this is mostly for Rule of Funny.
- Hero of Another Story: He is one of the main viewpoint characters of Fate/Zero and heavily implied to have fought in one of the minor Grail Wars of this timeline to get his current title, but an otherwise minor character here.
- Insistent Terminology: He dislikes being referred to as "Lord El-Melloi" because it is grating to hear it spoken without the "II."
- In Spite of a Nail: Even though Fate/Zero never happened in the Apocrypha timeline, the anime shows that he has a red cloth kept safe at his desk, heavily implying that he still summoned Iskandar in another Grail War.
- Meido: He reprogrammed El-Melloi I's Volumen Hydrargyrum to act and look like a maid.
- Audience Surrogate: Flat's questions and El-Melloi II's subsequent lecture on the Holy Grail War serve to acclimate newcomers to the series' mechanics.
- Entertainingly Wrong: He immediately guesses that the "gou" in Shishigou's name was written as "ゴ" or the Katakana for "go" as in the English "Let's go!". Hence, combined with the Shishi (Lion) of the first part of the necromancer's surname, Flat takes to calling Shishigou Go Lion-san. However, the actual Kanji for Shishigou's name "劫", which is simply a part of one's surname rather than containing any actual meaning. Lampshaded by Kairi himself and justified by the fact that Flat is from the Mediterranean and the most Japanese he's probably gotten was from his mentor's love of video games.Kairi: [looks to the side] Close enough.
- Genius Ditz: Not demonstrated here, but for all his carefree and cheery attitude he's immensely talented, but is too eccentric to use it properly and doesn't even know how he does half the stuff he does.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Unusually sweet and kind for a magus with a head of bright blonde hair to match, though Fate/strange fake makes this more dubious.
- Hero of Another Story: He is one of the main viewpoint characters in Fate/Strange Fake, but an otherwise minor character here.
Bram Nuada-Re Sophia-RiThe brother of Sola-Ui Nuada-Re Sophia-Ri and the successor of the head of the Department of Evocation. He is considered to be one of the first-class instructors employed by the Clock Tower. He is noted to be young and handsome with red hair, and a single glance shows a strong, high-minded gaze, refined features, and strong sense of duty in his words that place him as a member of the elite. He is confident in his ability to acquire powerful catalysts in a short time.
- Adapted Out: He didn't exactly have a large role in the novels, but he's still completely absent from the anime.
Reines El-Melloi ArchisorteThe young head of the noble family of the Archibald clan.
- Adapted Out: She didn't exactly have a large role in the novels, but she's still completely absent from the anime except for a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo in the very last episode.
- Ascended Extra: She was first mentioned in the Fate/Character Material entry detailing Wavers life after the events of Fate/Zero. She is actually a young girl at the bottom of the familys hierarchy who became head after Kayneth's death and Waver restoring the clan and thus recognized his achievements, but only does so while telling him that Kayneth's death was his fault and that he will have to serve her for his entire life.
"Adam"The Golem created by Avicebron's Noble Phantasm, which goes berserk when Avicebron dies almost immediately after activating it.
- The Assimilator: It can absorb other lifeforms into itself to fuel its power even further, as it does to two unfortunate homunculi, Roche to serve as its core, and Avicebron himself (though in that case it was a willing act in order to fuel it even further with his dying moments).
- BFS: It can form a giant blade of rock to attack its enemies. It tries to finish off Sieg and Mordred with it, but they blast right through the weapon before tearing the golem itself apart.
- Feel No Pain: Which makes sense, since it's not really "alive" despite its core coming from a very human source.
- Fertile Feet: Enormous, beautiful flowers grow in its footsteps as the world around it warps into Eden.
- Golem: The most powerful creation of stone formed by Avicebron.
- Humanoid Abomination: It looks vaguely like a 25-meter tall human with spines and carapace all over.
- Human Resources: Powered by a now-dead Roche, who was used as its core.
- It Can Think: It is shown to be both intelligent and able to learn at a fast rate, as it goes from merely rolling with Ruler's blows to actively parrying her based on only a few minutes of combat experience. Near the end of the fight, it even starts talking, to the surprise of Sieg.
- King Mook: The normal golems created by Avicebron, while powerful and difficult for most modern magi to fight, are really just the Elite Mooks of Yggdmillennia and even the weakest Servants can handle several at once. Adam is so powerful that it took a full-on alliance of Servants to bring down.
- Loophole Abuse: You'd think that anyone within "Eden" would gain its benefits until you consider the fact that Adam, the "Original Human", was the only denizen of Eden and thus it only helps him.
- Make My Monster Grow: It starts out as an impressive 25-meter tall golem, but as it continues to exist and expand its Reality Marble it will grow bigger and bigger until it's over a kilometer tall.
- Mental World: It can turn everything around it into "Eden", a permanent Reality Marble whose denizens are unable to suffer any kind of attack, as no such thing as injury exists in Paradise.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: Inside of "Eden", a conceptual Paradise, violence and injury do not exist, leaving Adam nearly immortal. It takes a multitude of pinpoint attacks on the still vulnerable parts of Adam followed by a simultaneous Clarent Blood Arthur and Balmung to take it down for good. Had it gotten more time to expand "Eden", it would be left invulnerable to any kind of attack.
- Perpetual-Motion Monster: Due to it's ability to drain Prana directly from the earth, it will never run out of power.
- Too Powerful to Live: Given enough time, Eden would've eventually given Adam Complete Immortality. Luckily it is demolished before such a thing can come to pass.
- Walking Spoiler: Its existence is mentioned from near the beginning of the story, but its actual appearance both spoils Caster of Black's betrayal and the fate of his Master Roche.
FafnirThe dragon slain in legend by Siegfried. It was his blood that Siegfried bathed in order to obtain the Nigh-Invulnerability of the "Armor of Fafnir" Noble Phantasm.
- Dreaming of Things to Come: He appears to Sieg in his dreams, foreshadowing Sieg's eventual acquisition of the "Dead Count Shapeshifter" Command Seals and his eventual transformation into Fafnir.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Appears at the beginning of both the light novel and the anime in the Flash Forward with his appearance constantly shifting with Sieg's own.
- Scaled Up: Sieg ultimately takes on his form at the end of the War.
- Walking Spoiler: His role outside of Saber of Black's backstory spoils several key plot points of the story, particularly the ones related to Homunculus/Sieg.
Morgan le Fay
The sister of King Arthur and the mother/aunt of Mordred. Firstborn of Uther Pendragon and Arch-Enemy of her younger sister, she was the one who caused Arturia to lose Caliburn, sent Sir Agravain to the Round Table as an assassin, and conceived Mordred from Arturia's "sperm" (blame Merlin for that) and her own ovary. It was through her machinations that Mordred ultimately fell down her path and brought ruin to Camelot.
- 0% Approval Rating: None of her five children stay loyal to her, and Mordred only goes after Artoria due to a personal vendetta which results in the ruination of the kingdom Morgan wanted to steal.
- The Archmage: She possessed incredible magical power said to rival Merlin himself.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her dress in the anime also shows quite a bit of her stomach area.
- Cain and Abel: The Cain to Arturia's Abel, given that she tries to end her sister's kingdom, poisoned said sister's "son" against him, leading to Arturia's death.
- Cleavage Window: Her outfit in the anime shows clearly she was quite...gifted in a certain area. Considering how Arturia is revealed to have a similar figure when she grows older, it must have run in the family.
- Composite Character: Like a lot of modern fiction, the Nasuverse combined both of Arthur's sisters (Morgan and Morgause) into one character.
- The Corrupter: To Mordred, having raised her from birth as a Tyke-Bomb to end Camelot.
- Dark Is Evil: She wears a primarily black dress, veil, and crown, all with blue-green highlights.
- Driven by Envy: The root of her hatred for Arturia was because despite Morgan being the firstborn and possessing incredible power herself, Uther basically shafted her and gave all his hopes and blessings to Arturia for being Britain's ruler (at least, from Morgan's perspective).
- Early Installment Character Design Difference: Morgana actually appeared first in a Fate/stay night manga. Her appearance in there has her with dark wavy hair and wearing a conservative dress in contrast to her pale-blonde hair and revealing outfit. And while her face is hidden in the anime, it looks just like Arturia's while the manga it looks different.
- Evil Counterpart: To Sir Kay, Arturia's surrogate sibling. While similarly overshadowed by the young king and resentful of her somewhat as a result, he never once considered betraying her while Morgan just couldn't let her jealousy go.
- Fallen Hero: Garden of Avalon has Kay bemoan how prior to her masterminding the loss of Caliburn, he and Arturia trusted Morgan for being as innocent as a fairy and as magnificent as a warrior maiden. To drive it home, her pale blond hair and skin look eerily similar to Arturia's own once she's corrupted into Saber Alter.
- Power Tattoo: The anime shows her having intricate red markings that start from her chest and pass down her to her belly button.
- Rapunzel Hair: As shown in the anime, she had long pale-blond hair that at least went past her waist, which is quite a difference with Artoria. While both are royal, she is the one who shows off her long hair.
- Stripperific: Her dress covers her arms, legs and chest well enough, but it leaves a large part of her stomach area and the area above her chest bare to see. One wonders if Mordred took after her in that sense, considering what she wears under her armor.
- Strong Family Resemblance: According to the anime, she's basically a grown-up evil Arturia if she wore sorceress robes and more or less a "Caster Saberface". It's all but certain that even if Morgan hadn't altered Mordred into a clone of Arturia, she would have grown up looking nigh-identical to her parents regardless.
- Supernaturally Young Parent: She is the mother of Mordred, Agravain, Gawain, Gareth and Gaheris who are all fully grownnote , yet she still looks youthful and only a few years older than her own magically-youthful sibling and younger than her eldest children Agravain and Gawain. This is likely due to being part fey and thus having a longer lifespan than most humans.
- You Remind Me of X: Apparently, she and Assassin of Red (Semiramis) are very similar, according to Mordred, possessing a similar "smell".
Head of the Matou clan, one of the three founding families of the Holy Grail War and one of the original creators of the ritual itself. He participated in the Third Holy Grail War and battled Darnic Prestone Yggdmillennia, but lost and was unable to prevent the Nazis from taking the Greater Grail from Fuyuki.
- Futile Hand Reach: Makes one as he drags himself along the ground while watching the Nazi zeppelins take the Greater Grail away, all his ambitions going with it.
- Kick the Son of a Bitch: Anyone who knows of his many misdeeds from Zero and stay night would likely cheer at seeing his broken and bloodied form vainly reaching out to stop Darnic from stealing the Greater Grail and utterly failing.
- Villain of Another Story: He's one of the Big Bads of Fate/stay night and a Greater-Scope Villain of Fate/Zero, but his role here is simply to be an obstacle that Darnic overcame in the backstory.
The Lancer servant who Darnic summoned during the Third Holy Grail War.
- The Cameo: Has no lines, he simply appears in the background during some of Darnic's flashbacks.
The Amazon Queen that became a rival of Achilles and slain by him. She appeared only in the Light Novel via a flashback.
- Adapted Out: Her flashback was cut out in the anime, but she did play a part in Achilles past in the light novel.
- Berserk Button: Calling her 'beautiful' is a bad idea. Achilles stepped on it big time.
- The Cameo: She appeared as a statue in Achilles Cosmos.
- Dying Curse: In her dying breath, she cursed Achilles and told him he would end up using his spear to kill a beloved. Fast forward to one of the end climaxes of the story, and Achilles is forced to use that same spear to kill a maddened Atalanta.
A knight who had fought alongside Jeanne d'Arc during The Hundred Years War, before going mad and turning into a Serial Killer after her execution. Toward the end of the Grail War, Caster of Red summons him in an attempt to manipulate Ruler. He was the Caster-class Servant who participated in Fate/Zero, but here he is a Saber.
- The Atoner: Wished so hard he was this. He knew what he did was horrible and was desperately looking for a chance of redemption that even without Shakespeare's goading, he's totally on board with Amakusa's idea of salvation, seeing it as the only way he could be redeemed. When Jeanne offers another way, he took that idea almost instantly.
- Fish Eyes: While he looks normal at first, his eyes and face gradually morph into the deformed look they had in Fate/Zero.
- Go Out with a Smile: As he is enveloped by the light of Jeanne's La Pucelle while protecting her and Sieg from Shirou.
- HeelFace Revolving Door: Went from a noble knight and steadfast ally of Jeanne into a depraved serial killer and eventually redeeming himself by protecting her. In as much as this version of Gilles summoned by Shakespeare, that is, the one summoned as a Caster is a different story.
- Nested Ownership: He is the Servant of Caster of Red. That said, he can't fight on his own due to his Master's own ineptitude and is meant solely to help break Ruler.
- Shipper on Deck: Rare evil example. He forces Ruler into admitting that she is in love with Sieg, which she had denied because she is supposed to love everyone equally, and he is only doing that to break her spirit, not to ensure her happiness.
- You Shall Not Pass!: As someone who knew Jeanne in life, he is able to use Luminosité Eternelle if he gets his hands on her flag. He does just that to protect her and Sieg from Shirou, to the surprise of Shakespeare, as he should NOT have any battle ability due to being summoned by himself.
Notably, all four later went to feature in Fate/Grand Order, the successor project to Apocrypha. For more information about their appearances there (and more information about them generally), see the Grand Order character page.
The mythical King of Israel summoned as an Archer class Servant. As in the original Old Testament scriptures he has a weakness for beautiful women.
His Noble Phantasms are "Hamesh Avanim: The Five Stones", a sling that can knock the opponent unconscious and lock their weapons from use with every fifth shot; "Sacrifice: Flames upon the Altar", an incense burner that can call down divine flames to kill the opponent; and "The Ark: Chest of the Covenant", the Ark of the Covenant, which will kill anyone besides David who touches it.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Was described as a Red-Headed Hero in The Bible, but his hair is green in the Nasuverse.
- Artifact of Death: The Ark of the Covenant. Touching it without his permission drains the trespasser of mana until death.
- Bolt of Divine Retribution and Kill It with Fire: David's Sacrifice Noble Phantasm envelops the target in thunderclouds and fire from the heavens.
- Character Alignment: In-Universe. Lawful Neutral at worst, Lawful Good at best. (He IS the man who is after God's own heart.)
- Handsome Lech: He wants a wife, but in his backstory he didn't go about it the rightway...
- Magic Music: His magical harp can be used in exorcisms and to purge mental interference.
- Power Nullifier: His Hamesh Avanim Noble Phantasm can seal an opponent's Noble Phantasm should the last stone hit.
- Red Baron: The King of Israel, though he really was.
- Semi-Divine: As an ancestor of Christ, David has a low rank in Divinity and therefore gains protection against certain sacramentsnote .
- Suffer the Slings: Naturally, being King David and all. It is the reason he is an Archer.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair
Rider (St. George)
The Patron Saint of England summoned as a Rider-class Servant. His slaying of a dragon gives him an advantage against Servants with draconic attributes.
His Noble Phantasms are his sword "Ascalon: The Blessed Sword by which Force is Slain", a sword that can block any attack or pierce any defense; "Abyssus Draconis: Thou Shalt a Serpent Become", which imposes a Dragon affinity onto the target; "Interfectum Dracones: Dragon Slayer", an attack that fires lances of light and is especially deadly against dragons; and "Bayard: The Phantom War Horse", who can negate projectile attacks and nullify a single lethal attack against his rider.
- All-Loving Hero: He said to be "an upright man who protects the meager, indiscriminate in his kindness" and he believes that anyone is capable of learning from their mistakes and returning to the path of righteousness.
- Anti-Magic: Based on his defeat of pagan sorcerers in his lifetime, when magic was still extremely powerful compared to modern times, he has A-Rank Magic Resistance, enough to be considered a "Magus Killer."
- Armor-Piercing Attack: By reversing its protective blessing, Ascalon can become a sword that can penetrate any armor.
- Baleful Polymorph: His Abyssus Draconis Noble Phantasm turns his enemies into dragons (it's unclear whether this is literal or merely imposes a dragon attribute), making them vulnerable to his Interfectum Dracones Noble Phantasm.
- Camera Fiend: Possibly; he is stated to love travel and to have taken an interest in modern cameras.
- Cool Horse: Bayard the Phantom Warhorse, and St. George's ultimate Noble Phantasm. Strangely enough, Bayard is an anachronism with this version of St. George - Bayard is a character from a French tale (specifically "The Four Sons of Aymon") that occurred centuries later and arguably a Heroic Spirit in his own right, being able to understand human speech, had the supernatural ability to adjust his size to his riders, and smart enough to thwart the people who tried to execute him.
- Declaration of Protection: Not necessarily for a girl, but he gains unlimited defensive abilities when people have faith and need him to protect them.
- Horseback Heroism: Became a Rider for it, but his skill as one is relatively low and is more thanks to the Cool Horse.
- Lawful Good: His In-Universe alignment.
- My Suit Is Also Super: Subverted by his Abyssus Draconis Noble Phantasm - the Noble Phantasm's power derives from his faith, and the coat merely focuses its power and is not a Noble Phantasm in its own right.
- Red Baron: The Dragon-Slaying Saint.
- Semi-Divine: His status as a Christian Saint gives him a low level of Divinity.
- Stone Wall: To the extreme. He has A Rank magic resistance, A+ Endurance and a skill that allows him to block mental attacks. He has the Battle Continuation skill that allows him to keep fighting even if he takes a fatal injury and another skill that grants unlimited defensive power as long as he is defending someone else. His sword Ascalon grants a large defensive bonus and his horse Bayard can save him from a fatal attack once. On the other hand his Strength is mediocre at D Rank.
- Story-Breaker Power: A possible reason why he has cut from the cast. He has 5 different protective skills, high endurance, a sword that can pierce any armor and conveys invulnerability, the ability to turn people into and 1-shot dragons and if he were to suffer a fatal blow (as if it could ever happen), his horse will give its life to save him. This makes basically invincible but also gives him incredible attacking force.
- Super Toughness: His Endurance stat is high even among Servants.
Lancer (Musashibo Benkei)
The legendary warrior monk who served Minamoto no Yoshitsune. Actually not Benkei at all but Hitachibou Kaison, another warrior who served Minamoto. After fleeing from a battle and leaving Benkei to die, Kaison was overwhelmed by guilt and assumed the former's identity. He is summoned as Lancer.
His Noble Phantasms are "Eighth Implement", which allows him to temporarily claim an opponent's Noble Phantasm as his own; "Benkei Butsu", which allows him to create equally-powerful duplicates of himself; and "Pilgrimage of the 500 Arhat", which summons a stampede of monks to forcefully carry off the opponent into Nirvana and nonexistence.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: Although he is a Lancer.
- Chaotic Good: His In-Universe alignment.
- Doppelgänger Attack: His Benkei Butsu Noble Phantasm.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Weaponised Benkei's Eighth Implement Noble Phantasm can steal an opponent's Noble Phantasm and use it against them.
- Power Nullifier: He possesses an exorcism skill that can seal his enemies magecraft, and a skill that emulates an enemy Master's Command Spell to temporarily prevent enemy Servants from using their Noble Phantasms.
- Red Baron: The Warrior Monk.
- Summon Magic: Benkei's strongest Noble Phantasm, which summons five hundred astral pilgrims who drag anyone caught in their path into the void, instantly killing them.
- Super Empowering: Attendant of Iron, which Benkei can use to strengthen his Master.
- Walking Armory: He wields "seven implements:" a naginata, an iron rake, a large hammer, a large saw, a two-pronged war fork, a tsukubou, and a sodegarami.
Berserker (Sakata Kintoki)
One of Minamoto no Yorimitsu's Four Heavenly Kings, also known as Kintaro. He is summoned as a Berserker-class Servant.
His Noble Phantasms are "Golden Eater", an enormous axe loaded with lightning cartridges, and "Golden Spark", which uses three of these cartridges to loose a lightning bolt to mow down enemies.
- An Axe to Grind: His Weapon of Choice per his legend. It's golden and is charged with electricity.
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: He likes flashy and shiny things, especially gold.
- Calling Your Attacks: His Noble Phantasms' descriptions lampshade that they are activated with "suspicious" true names, and that Golden Eater probably has a different name.
- Catchphrase: He says "gold and "golden" a lot about everything, including the names of his Noble Phantasms, Golden Eater and Golden Spark.
- Lawful Good: His In-Universe alignment.
- This was possibly why he was cut - as the Black Faction couldn't use him for plot-related reasonsnote , the alternatives were either not use him at all or have him go to the Red Faction - however, he was too good to go along with Red Faction's plans, he was scrapped altogether.
- Minor Injury Overreaction: Unlike other Berserkers, Kintoki is not constantly under the effects of Mad Enhancement. Instead, a Luck Check is performed whenever he takes damage, and if it fails he Turns Red and the skill kicks in.
- One of the Kids: Said to have the mentality of an average grade schooler.
- Red Baron: Golden Boy of Mt. Ashigara.
- Semi-Divine: His father was the God of Thunder in dragon form, but his mother was a man-eating witch so his Divinity rank is very low.
- Shock and Awe: Uses electric attacks with his axe, and can sometimes resist attacks from lightning deities.
- Speaks Fluent Animal: Kintoki can talk to animals to a limited degree.
- Turns Red: Kintoki's Mad Enhancement is only applied if he fails a Luck check after being attacked. If it does fail he goes wild.
