Voiced by: Natsuki Hanae (Japanese), Zach Aguilar (English), Alan Fernando Velasquez (Latin American Spanish), Daniel Lema (European Spanish), Gauthier De Fauconval (French), Renato Novara (Italian), Maximilian Belle (German), Rafael Quelle (Brazilian Portuguese)

Originally an unnamed homunculus created by Yggdmillennia. They have changed the system so that he, along with six others, are providing prana for all of the Servants. Unfortunately, he turns out to be a defect due to his Magic Circuits being very fragile. He eventually becomes good friends with Rider of Black. He later names himself Sieg.

  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • After going out his way to free the homunculi under Yggdmillennia's control during the great battle between the Black and Red Factions, he rushes to the battlefield to save Astolfo from Mordred. He nearly gets killed before he uses his Dead Count Shapeshifter Command Spells for the first time, and then nearly gets killed again after his Hour of Power is up.
    • Stops Jack the Ripper short of finishing off Fiore.
  • Bishōnen: His looks are very soft and delicate. After he receives Siegfried's heart, he appears a few years older, but still very pretty.
  • Came Back Strong: A twofold example. He revives after being impaled through the chest by Mordred and his heart restarting thanks to Frankenstein by gaining access to Siegfried's power through the "Dead Count Shapeshifter" Command Spells, and later it turns out Frankenstein's Blasted Tree did more than just restart his heart. It also gave him the draining ability of her Bridal Chest and a weakened version of Blasted Tree thanks to a piece of her living on within him.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Using Balmung almost completely drained his mana reserves, and even then it was not as powerful as Siegfried's own version. Although the first attempt was not as powerful as the original version, it is noted by the narration that Sieg has the potential to utilize Balmung at a power comparable to Siegfried's version, as he was still getting used to his newfound power at the time.
  • Deadly Upgrade: As Fate/stay night's Heaven's Feel route demonstrated previously, replacing part of your body with that a Servant's is a recipe for disaster. Granted, in Sieg's case it's a lot less life-threatening, as Siegfried's heart actually extends his lifespan past its original expiration date, but using his transformation into Siegfried slowly chips away at that same lifespan and runs the risk of eventually turning him into another Fafnir.
  • Emotionless Boy: Though he develops an ego, he's still incredibly stoic.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: After Frankenstein's power fully activates near the end of the War, Sieg goes from above average physical ability to being able to fight evenly with Shirou, an incarnated Servant. What's impressive about this is that Shirou had by that point had more or less regained his full Servant abilities and was supported directly by the grail itself. Although, he has also missing an arm.
  • Explosive Overclocking: His "Strase Gehen" works by channeling a massive amount of Prana through his hand that he sends into his target, which causes it to explode from the overload. He does this on the crystal vat he's originally trapped in and on the other homunculi vats, as well as on Reika's pistol after she shoots him in the heart but before she can go for the head and during his final battle with Shirou on a stone pillar. Presumably, something similar would have happened to Gordes had the alchemist not blocked it.
  • First-Episode Twist:
    • His name can be considered this as he gets it at the end of the first volume.
    • The first episode of Apocrypha shows what eventually becomes of him at the end of the story. He eventually transforms into the likeness of Fafnir, the dragon that Siegfried slew in his legend.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: He is an artifical human whose creator doesn't like him, and he suffers from existential angst after developing a sense of self. Then he is resurrected by Frankenstein's Lightning to become a second Frankenstein; complete with access to weakened versions of her noble phantasms.
  • Fuel Meter of Power: He only has three Dead Count Shapeshifter Command Spells, which allow him to take on the full abilities of Siegfried. He ends up getting a refill from Jeanne, however, bringing him back up to three Spells after the battle against Adam, but she cannot do so again.
  • Glass Cannon: He has an incredible amount of raw energy even by his fellow homunculi standards (to the point Caster of Black wanted to use him as his original choice for the core of Adam) and his ability to transform into Siegfried is absurdly powerful, but his body is extremely fragile due to his malformed Magic Circuits. During his battle with Gordes, his first strike is heavily implied to have enough power to kill the alchemist, but once it's blocked it only takes one strike from Gordes' metal arms to the chest to put him in critical condition.
  • Henshin Hero: A little after Siegfried sacrifices himself so he may live, Sieg utilizes the ability to transform into Siegfried when needed.
  • Hidden Depths: Shows surprising competence at mathematics when assisting Jeanne in doing Laeticia's math assignment.
  • Hour of Power: He requires a Command Spell to transform into Siegfried, and the transformation only lasts 180 seconds.
  • Heroic RRoD: The first time he uses his Command Spells to transform into Siegfried and uses Balmung in the light novel, doing so forcibly reverts him back to his normal form due to the strain on his body and prana reserves, leaving him helpless against the still-moving Mordred. In the anime he maintains it for a little while longer, but Mordred is still in better shape than him and quickly takes the upper hand in the sword fight, and once he goes back to normal he can't even move. Transforming into Siegfried itself eventually starts having negative effects on his body, with Chiron stating that overuse is chipping at his lifespan.
  • I Just Want to Be Free: After multiple conversations with Astolfo about the wonderful outside world, he tries to escape the Yggdmillennia fortress during the chaos caused by Spartacus storming the place. He's lethally injured by Gordes before he gets very far, and is revived at the cost of Siegfried's life. Afterwards, he is freed by Jeanne and follows her around a bit before going on his own, wondering what he should do with his newfound freedom and lease on life.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Suffers this fate by Mordred's hand when he tries to save Astolfo. It takes Frankenstein's Blasted Tree inadvertently restarting his heart and unlocking Siegfried's power for him to come back from it.
  • In-Series Nickname: After being revived by Siegfried, he takes up the name "Sieg" in honor of his friend.
  • It's Personal: After Jeanne dies as a result of unleashing La Pucelle, his short exchange with Shirou and the look on his face says it all:
    Shirou: I have no quarrel with you.
    Sieg: Well I do.
  • I Will Wait for You: Eventually, after becoming a dragon and taking the Grail to the Reverse Side of the World, he stays there to wait for Jeanne, in an interesting reversal of the hidden ending of the Realta Nua version of the original Fate/stay night, where Saber waited for Shirou in Avalon, and he eventually finds her. Like her, Sieg's wait eventually pays off.
  • Lack of Empathy: He never really takes the emotions or protection of others into account for his decision making. Seeing the outside world is his priority above anything else, so then his main concern is self-preservation. After he actually does escape, he becomes a lot more heroic and selfless in his actions as he attempts to find meaning in his existence and honor the sacrifice of Siegfried, and eventually decides to return to Yggdmillennia to free his fellow homunculi. By the end of the series he has grown to being able to willingly seal himself in the Reverse Side of the World for an eternity to prevent Amakusa Shirou's wish from affecting humanity.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: His name in the credits of the anime is listed as Sieg.
  • Living Battery: Like his fellow homoculous, he was initially a means to supply the Black Team Servantswith more mana so they could fight without reserve .
  • Near-Death Experience: Twice. First he is almost killed during his attempt at escaping the Yggdmillennia fortress, although he is revived by Siegfried giving him his heart. Later he is almost killed in a single strike by Mordred, but he is resurrected by Frankenstein's Noble Phantasm restarting his heart.
  • Never Sleep Again: Is revealed in the Light Novels to suffer from this at the hands of Fafnir itself. To elaborate, when Sieg sleeps he is dragged into a hopeless life-and-death fight against the dragon and it is strongly implied if he dies in these dreams Sieg will, in fact, die in reality.
  • No Name Given: Only known as "Homunculus". He later names himself "Sieg" in honor of Siegfried's Heroic Sacrifice.
  • No Social Skills: He's understandably awkward next to the exuberant Astolfo which is justified. Sieg is only a few weeks old by the end of the war, so things like "tact" and "subtlety" elude him.
  • Oblivious to Love: He's unaware of Jeanne's crush. It's justified since he's very young and wouldn't know what it was. By the end of the war, he recognized it to a simple degree. Protecting Jeanne and being with her, are his deepest desires and what drive him to overcome difficult challenges.
  • Our Homunculi Are Different: Notably the first male homunculus to be featured in the Nasuverse. He's also the first Homunculus/Servant hybrid.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Hardly is he seen not wearing a frown on his face. Jeanne encourages him to smile more.
  • Pinball Protagonist: He spends the first third or so of the story being dragged along for the ride in the War with no stake in it aside from wanting to be free and several members of Yggdmillennia wanting to use him for the purpose he was made for, and then trying to figure out what to do with his freedom after he has it. He slowly transitions out of the reactive state as he makes up his mind to free his fellow homunculi, become Astolfo's Master despite knowing the risks, and help his friends fight, finally breaking free of it by Episode 14 when he throws himself into the fight against "Adam" alongside the other Servants and proves to be a pivotal part in it.
  • The Protagonist: While it is an ensemble cast at first, the story comes to focus on him after a while.
  • Rebel Leader: After talking to some of the combat Homunculi, he learns that they are not actually mind controlled, they simply did not understand the concept of freedom, and join Sieg in his fight after he teaches them that they are not slaves.
  • Relative Button: Shirou killing Jeanne was the last straw for Sieg, who angrily vows to avenge Jeanne's sacrifice and end Shirou.
  • The Rival: Eventually becomes this to Mordred, which is fully cemented after they defeat "Adam" together.
  • Say My Name: "RULER!!!"
  • Scaled Up: Because he has Siegfried's heart, he also has access to the dragon blood that Siegfried bathed in. As such, when pressed, he can actually become the dragon Fafnir. Then he does become Fafnir as his wish at the war's end so he can become capable of moving the Greater Grail to the Reverse Side of the World and prevent Shirou's wish from coming true.
  • Ship Tease: He has tender moments with both Jeanne and Astolfo, both of whom worry about him.
  • Spanner in the Works: His unique existence ends up completely throwing Shirou's plan off track, since he never accounted for a Homunculus becoming strong as strong as a Servant and turning the tide against him. If not for his existence in the Grail War, Amakusa would likely have won, but Sieg's involvement was something he could never have anticipated.
  • Status Buff: In addition to using his Command Seals to transform, he can also use them on himself to boost his capabilities, which he does during the final battle with Karna to boost his Balmung's power to let it stalemate Vasavi Shakti, though even then he only unknowingly bought himself time for Astolfo to show up to save the day.
  • Stock Light-Novel Hero: After receiving Siegfried's heart, he ends up becoming a leader to his fellow brethren, a major figure in the Holy Grail War and possessor of the incredible powers of Siegfried at a cost. He is the one who manages to save the world from Shirou's plan. He lacks the Harem traits, however, as only Jeanne is truly interested in him (though Astolfo isn't shy about being affectionate either).
  • The Stoic: Even after developing an ego, he doesn't express much emotion outside of highly stressful situations. Such as Jeanne dying..
  • Taking You with Me: Gets impaled by Shirou's sword, but holds on for long enough to fatally injure Shirou with Frankenstein's Blasted Tree.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: Zig-Zagged. At the end of the fight with Karna, he throws Balmung at the hero, who manages to deflect it and prepares to kill Sieg as he runs to grab it by closing the distance...but it was really a distraction for Sieg pulling out Astolfo's sword and running through the now in-range Karna with that.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Went from being unable to give Mordred a fight to giving Karna a great fight.
  • Transformation Sequence: He requires the use of one of his "Dead Count Shapeshifter" Command Spells to take on Siegfried's form and use his full power.
  • Traumatic Superpower Awakening: Watching Jeanne sacrifice herself in front of him against Shirou is the trigger that activates Frankenstein's power within him.
  • Tsurime Eyes: His eyes gain a sharper look after Siegfried's heart is implanted into him, which coincides him starting to become more proactive in his life.
  • Turned Against Their Masters: He doesn't like being a Living Battery for the Black Team, so he attempts to escape. He ultimately leads the others in revolt, but they still work for/with the Black Team. It's just they are treated as human servants instead of dolls.
  • Unstoppable Rage: He spends the entirety of the final fight with Shiro in a rage over Jeanne's death.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Astolfo calls out on him for getting involved in the former and Mordred's battle instead of using his second chance at life to live freely. He responds that he chose to rejoin the fight of his own volition.
  • Younger Than They Look: He's a few months old at most, including the time he spent in the tank.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: At first - According to Chiron, he has at most 3 years to live due to his damaged Magic Circuits. However, after being revived with Siegfried's heart, Astolfo claims that its absurdly powerful existence would allow Sieg to live for at least a century. It comes up again after Sieg starts suffering from side-effects of his transformation into Siegfried, with Chiron stating that overusing Siegfried's form is chipping at his lifespan. Then he turns into a full-on dragon and travels to the Reverse Side of the World, where he lives for a really long time.


Ruler / Jeanne d'Arc

Voiced by: Maaya Sakamoto (Japanese), Erika Harlacher (English), Jessica Angeles (Latin American Spanish), Paula Carro (European Spanish), Fabienne Loriaux (French), Francesca Bielli (Italian), Maresa Sedlmeir (German), Carla Martelli (Brazilian Portuguese)

The legendary Catholic Saint who oversees this incarnation of the Holy Grail War. As such, Jeanne possesses the custom Ruler class as well as the Saber class designation.

Her Noble Phantasms are "La Pucelle: The Crimson Holy Virgin", a sub-species of Reality Marble in the form of a Flaming Sword representing her burning at the stake, which will kill her after the battle is over; and "Luminosité Éternelle: God Is Here With Me", her magical banner that creates a barrier around her with the same magic resistance as her own.

  • All-Loving Hero: She'll do her best to save and forgive anyone, no matter how evil they are or how much they curse her. In the case of Jack the Ripper, this compassion manifests as a Mercy Kill exorcism. Atlanta is outraged because she didn't recognize the "mercy" part.
  • Ascended Extra: In Fate/Zero she was mentioned several times by Caster and only showed up once in the anime during a flashback, but here she takes a much more prominent role.
  • Anti-Magic: Has the highest Magic Resistance of any Servant, ranked as unquantifiable at EX. It's so good, in fact, she can resist Jack the Ripper's Maria the Ripper outside of the initial pain of the stab, as its origin is rooted in the being the collective curses of the children of Victorian London's prostitutes.
  • Badass Adorable: Like Artoria, Jeanne combines beauty and kindness with the ability to kick ass. In her case, she's much less hesitant to express her emotions, skewing her more towards the "adorable" side of things than her Saber counterpart.
  • Barrier Warrior: Her banner, Luminosité Éternelle, can create a barrier using her Magic Resistance. She uses this to block Spartacus's suicidal explosion. On another occasion, even a superficial servant can use to block a mighty projectile attack from someone with the Grail's backing.
  • Big Good: The main point of the Ruler-Class is to ensure that the Holy Grail War runs smoothly without any problems.
  • Blade on a Stick: In combat she uses her standard, which is tipped with a lance point, while the banner is wrapped around it.
  • Braids of Action: Laeticia happened to have her really long in braid that reaches her knees when Jeanne possessed her, and Jeanne keeps it that way for the duration of the war.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: She feverishly denies being in love with Sieg when Shakespeare and Gilles both tell her she is, because she fears it would compromise her stance on loving everyone equally.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Episode 18 of the anime has her pouting when Astolfo gives Sieg a hug.
  • Close-Call Haircut: Gets one courtesy of Atalanta in Episode 18. It doesn't make her flinch at all.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: Her Revelation skill works like the Instinct skill, but also towards "reaching one's goal" like picking the right path of travel.
  • Combat Referee: She is summoned as a neutral overseer of the Holy Grail War.
  • Declaration of Protection: In the anime version of her meeting Sieg, she gives one towards him in honor of Siegfried's Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Determinator: From the Throne of Heroes, Jeanne spends an eternity trying an infinite number of times (since it is a place outside of time) to break into the Reverse Side of the World and reunite with Sieg.
  • Everyone Hates Mathematics: Being a farmer's daughter before she became a hero, she's never learned math and finds it frustrating to attempt to solve Laeticia's math homework that she promised to do on her adventure to Romania. Luckily, Sieg is able to help her out.
  • Flaming Sword: La Pucelle is a sword that erupts in flames when used because it is powered by the flames that killed her on the pyre.
  • Friendship Favoritism: Jeanne as the Ruler class has the ability to give any Master extra Command Seals. As compensation for Sieg and Mordred aiding in defeating Caster of Black's final Golem, she gives them both extra command seals, Mordred one and Sieg two. Mordred protests the blatant disproportionate treatment, but Jeanne's reasoning is that she believes that if Sieg runs out of Command Seals he'll die since he has Siegfried's heart.
  • Grand Theft Me: Heroic example; She possesses the body of a French student named Laeticia (who gave her body willingly out of admiration and faith) to preside over the Holy Grail War. This also prevents her from assuming a spirit form and requires her to tasks such as sleeping and eating to ensure the body is in proper condition. There are measures in place that if Jeanne were to die, Laeticia would survive. Laeticia's subconscious influence also drives Jeanne's own growing attraction to Sieg, although Laeticia states that she merely admires Sieg's way of life and that romantic attraction is entirely Jeanne.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Her long and golden hair is prominent among the cast and she is kind, selfless, and is the Big Good.
  • The Hero: With both the Black and the Red faction morally grey at the start of the Great Holy Grail War, is Jeanne, the neutral arbiter who is the only heroic figure.
  • Heroic BSoD: After getting Mind Raped in Episode 23, she doubts herself enough to where she starts to wonder if Shirou's plans and motives are true, until she snaps out of it due to Sieg's words.
  • Hidden Depths: She's bad at mathematics. Really bad.
  • Honor Before Reason: Due to being the neutral Ruler class, Jeanne chooses to abide by the rules of her summons and act as a neutral overseer of the Grail war. However this tends to come at times where she really should be more involved. For example, even though Karna had attacked her, a violation of the rules and was even more powerful than she is, she refused to assist Gordes and Siegfried because, with Siegfried there, it was a fight between the two factions. Thankfully she drops this mindset after Shirou gains control of the Red Faction, as she realizes how vital it is to help the Black Faction stop him from using the Grail.
  • Humble Hero: Often tells others that she doesn't deserve the title of Saint that she's been given regardless if they use it on her in either a praiseworthy or a mocking way.
  • Hypocrite: Invoked by Shakespeare via his Mind Rape Noble Phantasms. Jeanne was, in life, an All-Loving Hero who did not play favorites with people in terms of affection due to her tasks and her own beliefs. When she develops feelings for Sieg, Shakespeare calls her out on it by arguing she is betraying how she is supposed to behave. By playing favorites with Sieg, she's essentially betraying herself and her myth, which is why he summons a copy of Gilles to prove his point.
  • Identical Stranger:
    • Downplayed. She strongly resembles Artoria and has many design similarities (blonde hair, an outfit combining armor and a blue gown). Although they are visually distinct in other ways (such as Jeanne having a more feminine build and longer hair), Fate/Zero makes it a point that someone who's not thinking clearly could mix them up: Jeanne's comrade-in-arms, Gilles de Rais, mistakes Artoria for her due to the fact he's been driven insane as a result of her death. Word of God states that Zero-Lancelot as a Berserker were to meet her, he would mistake Jeanne for Artoria for the same reason. This is actually shown when they meet in Fate/Grand Order and reflected in gameplay where he unrelentingly fixates on her if she's in battle.
    • This trope is also played with in regards to Mordred. The resemblance between Jeanne and Mordred isn't commented on at all despite the fact that Mordred is basically an identical clone of her father in terms of appearance.
  • I Gave My Word: In the anime, she tells the Black Faction this is why she can't hand Sieg over to them, as that would run counter to the promise she made to the dying Siegfried.
  • Jeanne d'Archétype: She's the Nasuverse's interpretation of Joan of Arc.
  • Jedi Mind Trick: As part of her Ruler skill-set, she comes off as extremely convincing to Muggles and can convince people of the most ridiculous things, like telling a truck driver to hold for an entire day so that he would not come across Karna's ambush on her person.
  • Keigo: Speaks in tenneigo normally, but switches to more formal language for prayers.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Her EX-Rank Magic Resistance does not apply to attacks from holy sacraments. Shirou Kotomine just happens to be from the part of the Holy Church with access to these things, making him the only person who can reasonably damage her.
  • Lady of War: A composed and holy female swordsman who fights to uphold order. She is Jeanne d'Arc after all.
  • The Last Dance: La Pucelle gives her unimaginable power and holds the same rank as Excalibur, but it also symbolizes Jeanne's burning at the stake. Because of this Jeanne's life force is extinguished after the battle is over. She uses it against Shirou at the climax of the war, but while she wounds him and forces him to sacrifice a hand, in the end she has to leave it to Sieg to finish the job.
  • Lawful Good: Her In-Universe alignment.
  • Lightning Bruiser: According to her stats, everything save Luck clocks in at B-Rank or higher, and she proves it during the War by blocking Spartacus's giant form's and "Adam"'s direct punches by herself, and flipping and twirling around at high speeds to avoid attacks, even using the debris blasted up by their strikes as footholds to keep moving. She also briefly held her own against Karna until he prepared to use Brahmastra Kundala and could deflect Atalanta's arrows, which can punch through the Armor of Fafnir, with ease. During her fight with Atalanta using Agrius Metamorphosis, she runs through a fallen stone pillar without stopping.
  • Love Confession: She finally confesses to Sieg when they reunite in the Reverse Side of the World.
  • Luminescent Blush: Her entire face goes pink and red after realizing that she will have to sleep in the same bed as Sieg.
  • The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: Unlike other servants, she is not a summoned spirit but one that is inhabating a real, physical body. This leads to feelings like fatigue when her body needs to rest or accelerating heartbeat when near a boy-crush.
  • Mind Rape: Suffers this in Episode 23 at Shakespeare's hands with First Folio. She handles it pretty well at first but starts to crack when Shakespeare makes Sieg get burned at the stake in her place, and then she fully breaks down when Gilles shows up with Sieg's severed head and starts morphing into his twisted Caster self.
  • The Mirror Shows Your True Self: At one point in the OP, she is in her civilian garb, but her reflection shows her in her armor. This doesn't happen in the actual anime.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's basically Saber with an Impossible Hourglass Figure in skin-tight clothing. The anime doesn't miss the chance to show her naked in the OP and the ED. This contrasts with her completely modest and wholesome personality.
  • Neutral No Longer: The Ruler class is supposed to remain impartial during the War and must only interfere directly when one side or a specific Servant goes against the rules of the War to do something that could endanger the world or humanity as a whole. Darnic transforming Vlad into Dracula and forcibly fusing with him to create a monster capable of starting a Vampire Apocalypse, Avicebron creating "Adam" to begin warping the world into Eden, Jack the Ripper indiscriminately killing people both related to the War and innocent bystanders, and of course Shirou Kotomine taking control of all the Red Faction Servants save Mordred and intending to use the Grail as he does all fall under this jurisdiction.
  • Never Learned to Read: Having been born a simple farm girl, she never learned how to read or write, though since the Holy Grail provides her with knowledge of whatever time she's summoned into (including new languages) this isn't a problem for her.
  • Nice Girl: Her seriousness about her duties aside, she's an incredibly kind person who wants to protect others.
  • No Body Left Behind: Averted, since unlike most Servants she's using Laetica's body as a vessel, so she'll be fine even if she dies. That's exactly what happens when she does die.
  • Only the Chosen May Wield: Luminosité Eternelle can be used by other Heroic Spirits, but only if they had witnessed Jeanne's legend in their life. Which narrows it down to only Gilles, as proven when he uses it to protect Jeanne and Sieg as she prepares to unleash La Pucelle.
  • Power-up Full Color Change In the anime, her Servant attire goes from purple to white upon using La Pucelle against Shirou. It's taken straight from Fate/Grand Order where it was based on her third ascension form in the game.
  • Principles Zealot: Admits to Sieg she might be this in episode 17. She says that Shirou might be justified in his goal to bring salvation to mankind and that only the arrogance of a Heroic Spirit is what motivates her to oppose him.
  • The Protagonist: The first 12 episodes focuses on her before it switches to Sieg from episodes 13 and so on.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: The entire reason for the Ruler class being summoned is to have an overseer who will be neutral in the war and making sure it operates smoothly. The infinite command seals possessed by the class definitely make her an authority figure.
  • Red Baron: Known as "The Maid of Orleans". Materials also name her as The Standard-Bearer Who Justly Guides the Holy Grail War.
  • The Scream: She does this when she sees Astolfo naked in Episode 19, complete with the camera cutting to a shot of the fortress exterior.
  • Secretly Selfish: Or not so secret because Everyone Can See It. Over the course of the series, she begins to develop feelings for Sieg, which diammetrically opposes her legend as a supremely benevolent heroine who played no favorites. Once Shirou obtains the Holy Grail, he forces Jeanne to admit her love for a person above all others; effectively betraying her own legend and taking away her will to fight.
  • Seers: She possesses a limited sense of precognition and capacity to receive "visions", though she has to rely on her own intuition to discern their meaning. One of her visions shows her Sieg lying bloodied and kneeling on a battlefield littered with weapons and another reveals to her the face of Shirou Kotomine, which sends her chasing after the Red Faction on foot as they prepare for their full-scale assault on Yggdmillennia within the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: One of her civilian outfits looks like a suit in the front but exposes her entire back to reveal her Command Spells. She wears a jacket to cover it up.
  • Ship Tease: With Sieg, and it is confirmed when he asks her while they are out on a date if it's possible for Servants to have kids (it's not unless they have physical bodies to inhabit, according to her) and she assumes that he wants to impregnate her.
  • Sleep Cute: After having dinner with Sieg, they pass out on the same bed. Which they both fall off of.
  • Spin to Deflect Stuff: She blocks Atalanta's arrows by rotating her standard in Episode 18.
  • Technical Pacifist: According to legend, Jeanne has never actually killed a man in her life. This is why her favored weapon is a pole with her country's flag. In practice, it's more that she never needed to do so despite possessing more than enough skill.
  • There Can Be Only One: The reason Jeanne cannot transform into spirit form and use other abilities that every Servant has is because there is only supposed to be one Ruler, and the one from the Third War, namely Amakusa Shiro AKA Shirou Kotomine, is still around.
  • Tomboy: According to official materials, she qualities because Zero Caster's profile mentions that he likes tomboyish girls, which can only refer to her. This is backed up by Fate/Grand Order where Jeanne says that as a child she was considered One of the Boys.
  • Too Awesome to Use: Jeanne's La Pucelle is a powerful attack that uses the flames of her execution but after its use Jeanne dies even if she beats an opponent with it - it's basically her personal Godzilla Threshold, and it cannot be used merely to defeat a strong enemy, but in order to save something. The flipside, however, is that it annihilates anything in existence, hence its EX rank. She ultimately uses it in order save humanity's future.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Sieg. He's daft as a rock and she is surprisingly shy when it comes to the subject, though at least part of the latter is due to Laeticia's subconscious influence.
  • The Worf Barrage: Her ultimate Noble Phantasm, La Pucelle is an EX rank Noble Phantasm that can destroy anything in existence. So of course when she finally uses it against Shirou Amakusa it fails. That being said, Amakusa had to use a black hole to counter La Pucelle's flames, needed to sacrifice his hand to do so and leaves him injured and the Greater Grail mildly damaged, so Jeanne gets a lot of points for trying.
  • Would Hurt a Child: She obviously didn't like doing it but she was the one that killed Jack the Ripper. Its justified as leaving Jack the Ripper would just lead to more victims and leaving Jack alive isn't doing the children that make up their legend any favors either.
