An Alter Ego is a personification of an exceptionally strong emotion, wish or personality trait. The original Alter Egos were created from BB, who removed her own emotions and blended them with the Servant data of various goddesses to create new digital lifeforms. Alter Egos differ from typical "Alter" Servants in that they are not "another side" or "another possibility" of a Heroic Spirit, but more akin to a "fragment" which has broken away from the whole and gained sentience as its own unique and divergent being.
Alter Egos are strong against Foreigners, deal more damage to Cavalry classes (Rider, Caster, Assassin) and deal less damage to Knight classes (Saber, Archer and Lancer). They also get a specific bonus to damage against Beast III/R and Beast III/L.
- Artificial Human:
- The Sakura Five aren't Heroic Spirits, but rather fusions of various Divine Spirits in the Moon Cell built around aspects of BB's personality, such as Meltryllis representing "Pleasure". They are thus much younger than they look, which shows in their general lack of experience and inability to interact with people properly.
- Meanwhile, the two Mecha Eli-chans are magic guardian statues that gained life and were subsequently enhanced with fragments from Elisabeth's Spirit Origin and various robotic parts by Osakabehime.
- Sitonai is an interesting example, as the host body for the three spirits is Illyasviel von Einzbern, the most famous homunculus to come out of the franchise.
- Backstory Invader: Because of the nature of the CCC crossover, BB essentially hacks herself and the Sakura Five Alter Egos into Chaldea's database to explain away how they've technically always been present at Chaldea even with the event retconning itself from happening. Kiara also uses a similar method to insert herself as an Alter Ego into Chaldea after she's beaten.
- Composite Character: In-universe. A fair few Alter Egos are created by taking parts of the essence and power from various Divine Spirits (in the form of data in CCC's virtual reality) and welding them to a facet of the summoner's will and ego (BB, in the case of the CCC ones). As these abilities are often picked mostly for power, it's not uncommon for such Alter Egos to have... unwieldy bodies as a result.
- Decomposite Character: In-Universe this is why the Tamamo Nine can be considered Alter Egos but not part of the class, making them foils to the Sakura Five. Like how BB took parts of her being and made separate personalities from them, the Tamamo Nine took parts of their creator's being (mainly her tails) and split off to become their own being. But unlike the Sakura Five, they are not bound to the Alter Ego class and thus can appear in different classes.
- Fastball Special: Meltryllis and Passionlip are able to perform this, especially if the air between them gets cleared a bit and they can work together (which was harder for them to do during CCC). The attack is a Noble Phantasm all its own titled "Virgin Razor Palladion" (or Virgin Laser Palladion), which effectively makes Meltryllis act like the spear of Athena. This attack is so powerful it allows Meltryllis to break the speed of light and break through anything that isn't an absolute defense like Lord Camelot or Avalon. She not only uses it to try and bring down the SE.RA.PH Kiara at the end of the SE.RA.PH chapter, but "earlier" she used it to break out of the SE.RA.PH and, thanks to the unique relationship of SE.RA.PH's descent and temporality, travel back in time to make sure you didn't die at the end.
- Floral Theme Naming: The Sakura Five Alter Egos have this naming scheme.
- Meltryllis is named after the amaryllis, her name being a combination of Melt Virus + amaryllis.
- Passionlip is named after the passion flower and the tulip, with her sword-fingers even resemble the petals of a tulip.
- Kingprotea is named after the king protea. King proteas are known for being large flowers, and Kingprotea herself is fittingly the largest of the Sakura Five (and the largest playable character in the game overall).
- Glass Cannon: The general idea of the Class is this - they have no defensive bonuses besides the very rare Foreigner class, but they get to hit five different classes for bonus damage, those being the cavalry triangle (Rider/Caster/Assassin), Berserker and Foreigner. They aren't quite as all-encompassing in terms of being cannons as Berserkers or Avengers, however, since they also hit the knight triangle (Saber/Archer/Lancer) for half damage. Meltryllis tends to be more generally glassy, but Kiara and especially Passionlip can actually take a fair bit of damage... if their skills are up. If they aren't, then they can't really take a hit. Kingprotea, on the other hand, can soak up insane amounts of damage through her sheer health pool alone with her first skill.
- Improbable Weapon User: Meltryllis and Passionlip have both had normal body parts replaced with destructive implements influenced by their more dangerous goddess features. Passionlip's are her fists, which are literally as big and heavy as the entire rest of her body (and thus rather awkward), while Meltryllis uses kickboxing... which might not seem odd, except that her lower legs are permanently fused to blade-stilts. Some of the others get in on this too, as Mecha Eli-chan naturally uses all kinds of absurd, kaiju-inspired weaponry and Okita Alter's sword is absurdly, impractically long, not to mention sentient. And then there's Sitonai, who has a bow and a sword that are fancy and not terribly unusual... and a battle bear companion. Kiara and Kingprotea are probably the least improbable out of all of them, as the former simply combines close quarter combat with her demonic magic, and the latter just throws her immense strength around.
- Loophole Abuse: The Sakura Five normally shouldn't be able to be summoned as Servants, but BB uses her powers as the Moon Cancer to allow them to be summoned like other Servants. Mecha Eli-chan and Okita Alter are similarly the result of various shenanigans occurring in their respective story events. And both Kiara and Sitonai have abilities that allow them to engage in deliberate shenanigans to allow themselves to be summoned if the Chaldean Master wishes it.
- Min-Maxing: Being a class without any inherent Class Skills and able to be made from practically anything, Alter Egos are very prone to this. The CCC Alter Egos have the powers of multiple Divine Spirits which are combined into rather overpowered abilities, but in exchange they have rather grotesque features on their bodies. The Mecha-Elis have A in Strength and Endurance, but at the cost of having E in the rest of their basic parameters. Finally, Okita Alter is overspecialized as an Action Bomb of the Counter Force, to the point that she wasn't given a complete Saint Graph, since it would just be a waste of energy and effort for something that was designed to explode. "Sitonai" manages to avoid this mostly by the dint of the fact that the three divinities involved have come to co-habit Illya willingly, so they were a little more sensible about how things were divided up.
- Rapunzel Hair: Not... exactly a requirement to be the class, but as the CCC Alter Egos were based off of BB, they share her knee-length hair. Their hair tends to be a bit more "floaty" than BB's near-Hime Cut, however, and Meltryllis' in particular tends to naturally divide into something resembling Twin Tails. Then there's Kiara with her hair spread all around in her 3rd stage, and Okita Alter's untamed Hime Cut starting her 2nd stage. Sitonai, naturally, inherits F/SN Illya's waist-length locks.
- Rare Random Drop: Alongside BB, the Alter Egos have looked at the other Extra Classes and said "hold my beer". All Alter Egos are gold-rarity Servants and three of them are limited in availability to the CCC crossover event or very specific major milestone events (like New Year's or game anniversaries). Meltryllis, Kiara, and Kingprotea are 5* on top of this, and even if you get a 5* card roll in their gacha, you aren't guaranteed to get them. If you don't go in hard for them during the CCC event and its rerun, friend lists are the only place you'll ever see them outside of guaranteed SSR gachas. Even Mecha Eli-chan is an event-exclusive to the 2017 Halloween event and it's only possible to get one version of the two (though the re-run allowed players to claim the other one). Okita Alter is similarly tied to the third Gudaguda event. Sitonai was the first one to finally buck the trend, being a permanent gacha addition... if you defeat the second chapter of the second campaign, a minimum of eleven chapters deep from the start of the game.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Doubles with Dub Name Change, as in the Japanese server, the class is spelled as "Alterego" as seen on the Servants' Saint Graphs.
- Superpower Lottery:
- Holy moly. As baseline, because of their hybrid construction Meltryllis and Passionlip get Magic Resistance, Independent Action and Goddess Essence, giving them debuff resistance, extra crit damage and a flat bonus to damage on top of their stats. Each one also gets another passive unique to them - Riding for Meltryllis, and Presence Concealment for Passionlip - and then they get unique active skills, the best of which are unquantifiable and therefore EX-rank and are mechanically rather unique or have interesting interactions with the rest of their skills. Kingprotea is similar to her sisters but she trades Magic Resistance for Territory Creation and Mad Enhancement. Kiara herself has several passive skills inherited from her Beast version.
- Mecha Eli-chan and Okita Alter, because of the somewhat different way they were created, lack the Goddess Essence and Mecha Eli-chan doesn't even have Independent Action, but Mecha Eli-chan instead gets Item Creation B and both instead get a whole pile of other unique abilities, up to and including Okita packing an Anti-World NP.
- Tactical RockPaperScissors: As noted above, they're unique in this regard - they hit an entire standard triangle (Rider-Caster-Assassin) for 150% damage, deal half to another (Saber-Lancer-Archer) and double damage to as well as receive half damage from Foreigners. This is about the closest players have gotten to date to having characters that work like the Demon Pillars. They and Moon Cancer are the only Classes able to deal bonus damage to Beast III-type enemies, which include EMIYA Alter as the Lost Man and Beast III/R herself, and they and Foreigner are the only Classes able to deal bonus damage to Beast III/L.

First appearance: Fate/Extra CCC Foxtail

An Alter Ego of Desire created by BB by using the essence of the Earth Mother Goddess, a forgotten goddess of creation which served as the prototype of various Earth Mother goddesses in different mythologies such as Titania, Airavata and Tiamat. She is introduced in "SE.RA.PH -Second Ballet-" as the Bonus Boss of the SE.RA.PH Detour quests.
- Almighty Janitor: She has the lowest rank among the Sakura Five, yet she has the largest threat to the point that BB sealed her away for being too dangerous to go around the Moon Cell.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Her in-game sprite is ginormous, easily beating out already huge Servants like Ivan the Terrible and Xiang Yu!
- Bandage Babe: Primarily covered in bandages much like Summer Fran's third Ascension form.
- Big Little Sister: Her profile in the FGO Character Materials state Kingprotea is considered the 'youngest' sister of the Sakura Five despite being the biggest.
- Cast from Hit Points: An unusual version. Her Infantile Regression skill charges her NP gauge at the cost of dispelling her Huge Scale skill's effects. The amount of NP charge she gains depends on how many Huge Scale stacks she lost.
- Curtains Match the Window: She appears to play this straight with one eye covered, but averts it when it's revealed in her third ascension.
- Damage-Sponge Boss: Has around 2 million HP as a Bonus Boss, and gains 500k HP every turn, potentially escalating indefinitely. Fortunately, it resets back to 2 million periodically, and she gains a defense debuff whenever this happens. However, failing to beat her in that singular turn results in her regaining her HP but the debuffs stay, giving the player the chance to beat her regardless of HP, depending on how many debuffs are stacked. She even keeps the skill as a party member, slowly growing upwards of 40k HP in a game where 15k is considered really high.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Her attacks are mostly shaking the ground and throwing rocks.
- Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Her eyes go creepily dull whenever she's in Yandere mode.
- Extreme Omnivore: She thinks the Holy Grail would make a great dessert.
- Flower in Her Hair: Gains a bud in her second ascension which blooms in her third. Also a Stealth Pun since the flower in question is a king protea.
- Giant Woman: Already 30 meters tall and she can get even bigger with her Huge Scale skill, although the CCC Foxtail manga reveals it only applies to her external form as her "core" is human sized only.
- Paul Bunyan and Kingprotea bond and become good friends over this shared trait.
- Horned Humanoid: She gets Tiamat's horns at her 2nd and 3rd ascension. Appropriate, as Tiamat was also an Earth Mother.
- Lightning Bruiser: Kingprotea boasts the second highest Attack in the game at 12,835, barely beating out Cú Chulainn (Alter) by 30 points, and has respectable HP at 13,338, which can be ramped up to a whopping 40 THOUSAND HP with her first skill, also making her a great tank through her sheer HP alone. And despite her immense size, she has an incredible A-ranked Agility.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: One of her attacks is a deafening scream.
- Mechanically Unusual Fighter: Huge Scale and Infantile Regression feature a combo system that is unique among most Servants. Huge Scale gives her a buff called Endless Proliferation, that gives her a buff to her max HP each turn for ten turns, culminating at 10 stacks, allowing her to reach absurdly high HP levels for a obtainable Servant. Meanwhile Infantile Regression charges her NP based on the amount of Proliferation buffs she received prior to her using said skill before removing all stacks of Proliferation after usage. This combo allows her to fire off her Noble Phantasm two times in a row if the player plans things out a bit, with her NP directly benefiting from increasing her Buster effectiveness as long as she has at least a 20% buff from Proliferation.
- Mismatched Eyes: Her third ascension has one eye purple and the other red, a sign of her Earth Mother lineage coming to the forefront.
- Mother Earth: She is a combination of various Mother Earth Goddesses from different mythologies. The most obvious being Tiamat.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Even as a playable character sitting in a fetal position her sprite is utterly massive compared to other large characters like Gorgon or Ivan. It gets to the point that she barely fits in My Room.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: If the player has Kiara, Kingprotea drops her cutesy voice and switches to a more serious tone as she prepares herself to protect you. She goes back to her regular voice once she learns that this version of Kiara is on your side.
- Our Giants Are Bigger: Unlike Bunyan, Kingprotea starts off as a giant from the start and even while crouching, she's so big that her head is generally off-screen. When she uses her Noble Phantasm, she grows so big that Tiamat could act as her little pet.
- Rapunzel Hair: Taken to absurd levels as her hair is so long that it reaches down to the ground even when standing.
- Silliness Switch: Her second ascension turns her mossy growths and blooming Tiamat-esque characteristics into a cutesy monster outfit. She thinks it's adorable, and if you use it she just starts having fun pretending to be a Kaiju instead of taking things seriously.
- Square-Cube Law: Like Ivan, due to her gigantic size, she primarily teleports to the enemy to attack them. It's explained that the digital space of SE.RA.PH lets her circumvent this law and she can just keep growing without consequence, but it takes effect when summoned in the real world. She has to activate her Reality Marble in order to use her bulk in the real world.
- Tailor-Made Prison: After her creation, BB decided that Kingprotea was too dangerous and sealed her away in the Fallen Angel's Cage to contain her. Kiara brought it over to the SE.RA.PH created through Seraphix to amuse herself; the protagonist accidentally enters it, kickstarting the event's new subplot.
- Units Not to Scale: Her sitting sprite is scaled down to "5 meters" which still towers all other playable Servants. However, 5 meters is smaller than the actual height of a sitting 30-meter tall person would be.
- Unskilled, but Strong: She is the lowest-ranked, yet strongest, of the Sakura Five. Because while she lacks the conceptual abilities and fighting skill of her sisters, she instead boasts outrageous physical might, simply by virtue of always being the biggest thing in the room. Most of her "style" consists of wild swings, throwing rocks, and a flick of her fingers strong enough to cause shockwaves. Even her Noble Phantasm isn't really one as defined by the lore, her sheer size and strength is enough to function as an equivalent.
- Yandere: She's eerily willing to take down anyone and anything that gets between her and her Master's love. Then there's this line in her final ascension quote."Huh? Where did you go, Master? Are you hiding on such a tiny planet? Hehe... because I'll find you right away no matter where you go. Like always... you'll keep loving me, won't you."
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple, as she's based on BB, and thus Sakura.

"Alter Ego, Magus Aegis Elisabeth Channel II. Don't call me Mecha Eli-chan. Just call me Mk.II. Nice to meet you."
Two mechanized idols armed with high-class weaponry to survive and triumph in the increasing bedlam of Halloween Events, created from the magical guardian statues of Castle Csejte awakening in response to Elisabeth Bathory's repeated failures to obtain a Holy Grail and further enhanced by Osakabehime's magic, Elisa particles siphoned from Elisabeth Bathory's constant Spirit Origin changes, and mechanical parts shipped from Amazones.com. The free Servant of the third Halloween event "Halloween Strike! Demonic Climb - Himeji Castle War." with the choice of being between the Mk. I (antagonist-turned-ally) or the Mk. II (major antagonist). The event rerun allows players to claim the second Eli-chan unit if they so chose.
- A-Cup Angst: Even as a mecha, Elisabeth is still as flat as a washboard. She throws one of her knights into jail for calling the sides of Castle Csejte "flat," and thus triggering her temper. Her final attack during her rather lengthy Noble Phantasm animation is called Breast ZERO Erzsébet.
- Affectionate Parody: Of the Super Robot genre and the propensity of an Alter Ego to be an Artificial Human.
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot:
- Averted, in that Osakabehime made Eli-chan Mk. I as part of her scheme but she ended up taking her duty of taking care of Csejte Castle very seriously and turns on her creator because Osakabehime didn't fit in with her directive. So it's not that her AI went haywire, but that her creator Did Not Think This Through and neglected to plug in her "heart circuit" that would allow her to act in a fairer manner outside of logic.
- Played straight by Eli-chan Mk. II, who decides to continue on with Osakabehime's directive of creating a Singularity of sloth even as Osakabehime chokes up at the thought of sacrificing Elisabeth and is even willing to sacrifice Osakabehime in the process of powering up the giant Mk. II robot. This is due to not having a "heart circuit" installed in herself.
- Alternate Self: Like all Elisabeth variants, this is a reflection of her desire not to be the Countess of Blood. Specifically, they represent what Elisabeth might have become had she never gained an obsession with blood or the idea a woman has no worth unless she remains beautiful, i.e. a strict, cool-headed yet self-righteous ruler with a hidden desire to indulge in her more childish dreams. While Elisabeth tries to claim that she's never turned into a mecha before, Da Vinci notes that they really can be considered Elisabeth due to being partially made from "Elisa" particles taken directly from her Spirit Origin.
- Ambidextrous Sprite: Actually parodied. As seen in the artwork above, both Mecha Eli-chans pose in mirror parallel in their artwork. However, instead of looking odd in-game, it actually helps in distinguishing them. (For note: the regular Elisabeth, in all her other forms, has her right horn as the larger one. Unit 1 follows in this trend. Unit 2, by contrast, reverses this.)
- Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Mk. I responds to some of the accusations that the party (namely, Elisabeth) levy against her in descending order of seriousness. At least to an objective viewer.Mecha Eli-chan: "...For the record, I'm not making a mechanical empire, and I do not laugh like a melodrama villain... and most importantly, I have never once thought of you as 'cute'."
Elisabeth: "THAT'S the part you're taking issue with!?"
- Badass Boast: Mk. I has a very verbose taunt before she fights the party, but the party isn't very intimidated.Mecha Eli-chan: "But none of you have any future whatsoever. Why, you ask? Because I am about to erase you from existence. None without wings can survive at this altitude. The sky belongs to me, and me alone. If you would lament your fates, curse yourselves for letting this idiotic ordeal escalate so far. As the Steel Demoness, I shall sentence traitors to feel the burn of my flame breath, and castle climbers to taste the spiciness of my missiles! As Csejte's rightful ruler, I shall purge you all!"
Assassin of Shinjuku: "(Yeah, she's been practicing that in front of a mirror...)"
Osakabehime: "(So that was her catchphrase...)"
- Beneath the Mask:
- While Unit I usually talks in a "robotic" manner, her more "Elisabeth-like" personality occasionally slips out. At her final ascension, she unintentionally lets loose and speaks exactly how Elisabeth speaks, until she realizes it.
- While Mk. II expresses distaste for anything relating to Elisabeth, one of the dialogue options during the climax of the third Halloween event when the protagonist prepares to insert her heart circuit by yelling "show me your chest!" has her express a very "Elisabeth" statement.Mk. II: Wh-what did you say!? What are you thinking!? I mean, I understand the gist. I've seen the entry in my database. But...you know... Aren't you supposed to buy me dinner first?
- Brainwashing: Mk. I uses a ray to brainwash the castle staff to serve her, though it apparently reduces their combat abilities and intelligence in the process.
- Card-Carrying Villain:
- Averted for Mk. I, who always frames her antagonistic objectives as being for the good of the land, especially when pointing out Elisabeth's wasteful Halloween preparations. Both Elisabeth and Osakabehime portray her as this trope when they explain to Chaldea why they're being chased, however, leading to Mk. I directly replying to Elisabeth's accusation that she thinks that Elisabeth is cute.
- Mk. II outright says that the "II" in her designation stands for "twice as cruel." She even reveals at the end of the event that she set the reactor room to explode if she should be defeated under the logic that's what every evil villain's underground lair should do.
- Cranium Chase: Like Chacha's falling skill animation, both Mecha Eli-chans have a special animation in which they are losing their heads and putting them back when casting a skill. Unit I even tells you that you didn't see anything.
- Dumbass No More: Mk. I's arguments for why she, rather than the original, should be in charge is that she is significantly more intelligent. Indeed, upon taking control of the castle, her first order of business is to try to undo some of Elizabeth's sillier mistakes, like stockpiling candy that will spoil before Halloween.
- Expy: On top of being a general parody, she's also a much more direct homage to Mecha-Godzilla.
- Eye Color Change: When Mk. II switches to "serious" mode, her eyes shift from black to blue.
- Glass Cannon: They have a good skill set for both NP and crit damage, a gorilla (triple Buster) deck, high attack and good NP gain, but no defensive abilities apart from their first skill's defense bonus, and the NP/critical damage boosting skill removes any defensive benefits they might be enjoying. Given how low their HP is, they almost play like a less squishy Berserker. Ironic, given their literally-steel bodies.
- Guardian Entity: Their true origins are as statues within Castle Csejte designed to awaken to protect the castle in the event of great trouble. The reason they woke up is because of all the craziness of the past Halloween events, and then they ended being morphed into their current Robot Girl state by various circumstances.
- HeelFace Turn: After finding out Osakabehime's true motivations, Eli-chan Unit I agrees to join with the protagonist to stop her and remove the singularity.
- Humongous Mecha: A gigantic Mecha Eli-chan Unit Mk. II appears on the event map, which towers over Csetje Castle, Ozymandias' pyramid and Himeji Castle stacked altogether.
- Knight Templar: Mk. I's obsession with order and proper management ironically makes her a bit of a handful, especially since she seizes control with a "brainwashing ray." Osakabehime argues that, if she hadn't been stopped relatively early into the Halloween event, Mk. I would've "gone all tween novel dystopia," and everyone more or less agrees.
- Machine Monotone: How she talks in combat. Unit Mk. II is more robotic.
- Macross Missile Massacre: One that's fired from her skirt (named "Skirt Flare" by Unit I). And that's just how her Noble Phantasm starts.
- Mutually Exclusive Party Members: They were this to each other within the event, as players could only pick one to keep. The re-run allowed returning players to claim the second assuming they played during the original run.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Her original was already criticized by Mash in the previous Halloween event (where she was also a Dragon Quest Parody Warrior) as a "Noblewoman, vampire, serial killer, bat wings, dragon horns, idol, dragon girl." Now, "mecha" can be added to the list of random themes, to Mash's exasperation.Mash: "Also, a mecha...? Is that really what this has come to? I guess so... I am fairly confident that we have gone well past the point of manifesting different aspects of a particular hero, Senpai."
- No, You: When Assassin of Shinjuku claims he's going to take her down and kick her ass, her response is thus:Mk. II: "...You're not very smart, are you? It is your ass that is going to get kicked."
- Not the Intended Use: Her Noble Phantasm is actually an Anti-Army Noble Phantasm unloaded on a single person.
- Only Known by Their Nickname:
- According to Mk. I, their full name is "Magus Aegis Elisabeth Channel," but she tells everyone to just call her Mecha Eli-chan. When the protagonist notes that it would make more sense to call her "MAGI Eli," she angrily states that's a Non-Indicative Name and that she chose to emphasize the "mecha" aspect of herself.
- Mk. II demands to only be called "Mk. II" and refutes even being called Mecha Eli-chan
- Palette Swap: Besides color, her two versions are only differentiated in gameplay by how the grey one has a more "robotic" voice.
- Proud Beauty: She claims she chose to call herself "mecha" partially because "it serves to highlight the beauty of my polished steel body."
- Razor Wings: Since they're metal extensions, they have no problems pulling off their sharp metal wings and throwing them at their target like spinning boomerangs.
- Restraining Bolt: The Halloween event reveals they have a "heart circuit" that presumably allows them to feel proper emotions and better consider their actions. Without it, they get caught up in their programmed directives and start to sink down the Knight Templar and A.I. Is a Crapshoot route.
- Robot Girl: They used Elisabeth Báthory as a template thanks to absorbing rogue "Elisa" particles from Elisabeth's Spirit Origin in their creation, but that's where the similarities stop.
- Rocket Punch: One of their possible attacks. Mk. I even calls it out."IRON FIST ROCKET PUUUNCH!"
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Breast Zero Erzébet is an "Anti-Army-Individual" Noble Phantasm that involves them unloading their entire arsenal into a single target. Their profiles say it's a bit brutal that it's all getting used on one person.
- This Is a Drill: Her Extra Attack has her convert her hands into drills. Unit I calls it the "Eli-Chan Drill", while Unit II calls it the "Spinning Crusher".
- Three Laws-Compliant: Moriarty tries to hold her back by declaring these laws. She scoffs that even if she was programmed with them, Isaac Asimov wrote all the ways to circumvent the three laws anyways. Servants are not human, so it doesn't matter.
- Through a Face Full of Fur: Despite being made of steel and presumably having no blood, Mk. I has a very noticeable Luminescent Blush.
- Trash Talk: While managing the mission portion of the shop during the event, Mk. I is openly scornful of the player's progress and accomplishments. But, in a vaguely encouraging way, mind.
- Upgrade vs. Prototype Fight: The finale of the third Halloween event has Mk. I fighting alongside the heroes to trash a bunch of mass-produced Mk. II robots before facing off against the actual Mk. II. It should be noted, however, that the "prototype" and "upgrade" both have the same combat specs, with the only "upgrade" Mk. II technically has over Mk. I being a different personality Osakabehime found more appealing than Mk. I's, and it still ended up biting her in the ass.
- We Do Not Know Each Other: After the event's finished and Mecha Eli-chan and Elisabeth are both back at Chaldea, Mecha Eli-chan explicitly prefers to not talk to Elisabeth unless absolutely necessary since she'd be mortified if her friends found out they were associating.

First appearance: Fate/EXTRA CCC

Her debut largely assumes that you've already played Fate/EXTRA CCC, so beware unmarked spoilers for that game.
An Alter Ego of Pleasure created by BB by amalgamating the Servant data of Artemis, Leviathan and Sarasvati. Her personality is one of perfectionism and merciless sadism, and her naturally high prowess has created a feeling of arrogance and disrespect towards her fellow Alter Egos and even BB herself.
She struggles to understand the emotions of other people and considers herself a monster; in turn, she believes she will never find someone capable of understanding her own complex feelings. Like all Alter Egos, one of her senses has been dulled: in the case of Meltryllis, it is her sense of touch, which reinforces her feeling of isolation from the world. Yet Meltryllis is still a being born from the wish of a young girl, and so she unconsciously longs for the idea of true love.
She's an antagonist in Fate/EXTRA CCC and debuted as a major ally in SE.RA.PH, being the protagonist's main Servant.
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: Her Armed Legs can slice apart almost anything they hit.
- A-Cup Angst: She doesn't like looking like a little girl despite being the oldest of the Sakura Five and gets frustrated about it occasionally. Passionlip also mocks her lack of breasts and then begs you not to tell Meltryllis she said it.
- Animation Bump: Her attack animations received an update with the SE.RA.PH re-run, which has her incorporating more Dance Battler moves to her attacks and more visual water effects.
- Armed Legs: Her massive, weaponized prosthetic legs. Yes, she does not have "true" lower legs; those blades replace her legs below the knee entirely. Also, much like Passionlip's hands, merely touching them can be extremely dangerous for normal humans.
- The Assimilator: She once again has Melt Virus, and the trope is pretty much how it works - she can infect you with it in order to steal your levels, stats and whatnot. In gameplay terms, she inflicts an NP down effect on the enemy (and her allies, since she doesn't discriminate when it comes to gathering power), and after a turn, gains NP damage herself. She mentions in SE.RA.PH she can't use it to its full potential in her current condition, however.
- Balance Buff: Her third skill was neither great nor terrible, but frequently annoyed players because A) the NP damage buff did not scale and B) it was easy to screw up the timing and miss out on being able to use it at all. She eventually received a Rank Up Quest to cause the damage to scale from 20-30% rather than being a flat 20% as well as making the effect go off instantly and last for two turns. Since her NP gain isn't quite good enough to let her NP twice in a row even under ideal circumstances without support, this effectively just means that you can use the skill and her NP either on the same turn if you want to use it by itself or the next if you want to use it as part of an NP chain and don't want to worry about the party demerit effect, which was how it originally worked.
- Ballet: Her Dance Battler routine is not only based on this, but she compares herself and the main character to the titular duo of the ballet Giselle. She even refers to herself as a "prima ballerina" at one point.
- Because You Were Nice to Me: She falls in love with the protagonist for treating her kindly and never seeing her as a monster, rescuing her from the despair and loneliness she felt ever since she was created."I felt nothing but fear and despair back then. I cried every night knowing that my abilities might ultimately not be enough to protect that person. Wondering when that crucial time will come. But... that person only smiled. And so, my weak self did everything in its power to follow."
- The Berserker: Her Sadist skill increases her damage as she continues fighting, but also leaves her more vulnerable to enemy as she gets caught up in battle. This is reflected pretty bluntly by an attack increase accompanied by a defense decrease in gameplay. Her boss fight version has this as a passive skill that increases her damage as she continues, make her fight a rush to take her out before she slaughters your entire party with crits.
- Blood Knight: Just like in CCC; she actually has trouble feeling things (both in terms of emotion and in terms of her senses) if she isn't fighting, and her excitement audibly increases when she gets to use her Extra Attack or Noble Phantasm.
- Bridal Carry: Is the recipient of one from the protagonist late in the SE.RA.PH chapter, when she's too wiped out to actually make it back into the church the team is using as a base. Cue Meltryllis turning into a tomato and having a tiny panic attack over the risk of the protagonist accidentally touching the combat part of her legs and suffering major injury as a result.
- Call-Back: Still has an interest in EMIYA, which is why she's mad that the "senpai" she meets in the church is his Alter.
- Melt tends to responds to things she likes, like dolls and battles, with "How irresistible"note .
- She also likes to repeat herself twice when trying to reassure herself, especially when flustered or melancholic.
- Combat Stilettos: More like combat stilts, but the essential idea applies.
- Dance Battler: Her essential fighting style, which is why Sarasvati Meltout is a Quick attack and she has a QQABB deck. Her combat animations can only be described as "murder by way of slam-dancing", and this version of Sarasvati Meltout involves pirouetting hard enough to create a cyclone of water. Ballet dancing (especially Swan Lake, which is regularly used as a metaphor) is her recurring character motif.
- Deuteragonist: She's your main ally in the SE.RA.PH chapter, and most of the story in that chapter revolves around her and her attempts to make sure that the Protagonist survives against Kiara.
- Diving Kick: Her Extra Attack ends with one. During the climatic ending of SE.RA.PH, her and Passionlip's combined Noble Phantasm, Virgin Laser — Palladion is used like this, allowing her to defeat SE.RA.PH Kiara. The latter inspired a variation of it which is seen in her new animation update for her Extra Attack.
- Don't You Dare Pity Me!: After Passionlip is rescued, she's the first to notice that something is wrong with Meltryllis, presumably because she's the only one who knew her before this. After she admits her condition, she tells Passionlip about the previous attempt to defeat Kiara and how she bonded with the protagonist before they died the first time. When Passionlip tears up, Meltryllis bristles and says that if she pities her for what she considers the greatest experience in her life then their friendship will be over. However, Passionlip does understand that Meltryllis cherished that week and envies her, wishing she could have such memories.
- Evil Laugh: She has one in her Noble Phantasm 1 voice lines.
- Extremity Extremist: All of her attacks are leg-based, since she can't really use her arms.
- In her very first appearance, she mentions that she has "quite literally flown back up from the bowels of the earth for a chance to fight you all once more." Which is exactly what she did after the first disastrous fight with Kiara to save the protagonist.
- When the team arrives at the command room, she muses that the code wasn't there "last time" she was here, and clams up when the protagonist notes this before quickly answering. Once again, referring to the first timeline.
- Good All Along: In SE.RA.PH., it's pointed out at several points she seems to be hiding things from the party and her constant, almost self-deprecating references to herself as an inhuman monster don't help endear herself to the other Servants. Yet, she possesses Undying Loyalty to the protagonist, is nowhere near as evil as she would try to present herself as, and she has good reasons for being secretive. The fact her alignment is "Lawful Good" seems to be to emphasize she really is a good person post-CCC'-development.
- Handicapped Badass: She is very nearly a quadruple amputee in effect if not reality. She has no legs beneath the knee and her arms and hands both move very awkwardly and have almost no feeling in them. She finds it difficult to even shake hands. However, she's also an extremely dangerous fighter and despite her handicaps is very quick. Further, she can infect people with a virus that drains their abilities for herself.
- Heroic RRoD: Her Saint Graph has been irreparably damaged by using her combination attack with Passionlip to move through time digitally to save the protagonist, causing her strength to deteriorate throughout the event. When everything is finally all wrapped up, she can't be saved, but BB does manage to record her data such that she can be summoned again in the future as a new her, though she won't have the current Meltryllis's memories.
- Hesitation Equals Dishonesty: After saving the protagonist from Suzuka, the protagonist has the option of noting they never told her their name after she addresses them by it, which is followed by her noticeably grimacing before trying to play it off as her overhearing it from BB and giving them a longing look that she tries to pass off as her just appraising them. She's actually just happy to see them alive.
- Hidden Depths: Retains her doll obsession from CCC but this time seeming to find a certain connection between them and herself, instead of her previous deal of preferring human shapes without any real humanity to them. Plus, despite her arrogant attitude, she seems to want to do simple things like hold hands just as much as Passionlip, though she claims she can't even feel it. So, you know, you better hold on tight and make her feel it. In her final Ascension art, she is shown holding a Fou doll while looking embarrassed.
- Hidden Heart of Gold: She pretends to hate and look down on humans, but she and the other Alter Egos are actually afraid of them and wish they could be human themselves.
- I Am a Monster: She regularly tells everyone who will listen how she's an evil and inhuman murder machine that could never relate to humans. The fact that the protagonist completely trusts her regardless is a big part of her Undying Loyalty to them.
- I Shall Taunt You: She has her infamous "Ahh, scary, scary~"note line from CCC here as well; this time she can say it on skill use.
- Innocent Blue Eyes: At first she seems to be a subversion given that she's the only one of the Sakura Five with those striking blue eyes, yet is vicious and sadistic. However, she's actually scared of love in some senses, is said to be highly devoted in CCC and in the present where she's more mellow she turns out to want the same simple pleasures as her more obviously innocent sister, Passionlip.
- In-Series Nickname: Referred to as "Melt" by several characters.
- Kick Chick: All of her attacks are kicks, since her hands are pretty useless.
- Kill and Replace: The Meltryllis that aids the protagonist throughout SE.RA.PH is actually from the future having travelled back to save them from Kiara. The "present" Meltryllis in the current timeline has to be killed in order to ensure Kiara doesn't figure out Meltryllis's plan too early; however, said Alter Ego willingly decides to go through with it after witnessing Meltryllis' memories and feelings for the protagonist.
- Lesser of Two Evils: She claims that for all she hates humans, she hates BB even more, and so any chance to screw with her will lead her to gladly join up with humans to do so.
- Lightning Bruiser: She has A+ Agility and a decent C Endurance, and while her E-Rank Strength would usually disqualify her it matters little lore-wise when her Armed Legs can slice through most defenses anyway.
- Little Big Sister: She likes to consider herself the big sister of the Sakura Five, but Passionlip privately admits that she can't take her seriously because of how small she is, then begs the protagonist not to tell her she said so.
- Made of Air: Her body actually has a composition very similar to water, which allows her to let certain kinds of attacks pass through her without much injury. She showcases this in SE.RA.PH to let Tristan's sonic waves pass right through her body in order to pin him down, with Tristan noting that it would take a weapon more similar to Gawain's Excalibur Galatine to do real damage to her.
- Making a Splash: All of the deities she draws power from have ties to water, she had a lot of water-based imagery associated with her in CCC, and Sarasvati Meltout involves attacking her target with a torrent of water and her weaponized legs.
- Narcissist: While she doesn't take her pride to a psychotic extent like in CCC, she is still very proud of her physical form and flaunts it. There's a small comment from the protagonist's point of view in her profile, noting that her in-profile height and weight are actually her with (legs) height and without weight, before concluding that it's obvious what her reasons are for rewriting it.
- No Social Skills: She's so intent on paying attention to the protagonist that she fails to notice what the other people around her are thinking. It takes the entire event and BB telling her outright for her to realize that Tristan was worried about her.
- Not Helping Your Case: She is fundamentally a kind of Frankenstein monster made up of an assortment of random goddesses and given a warped psyche focused solely on pleasure. She's developed beyond that somewhat such that she's not particularly hostile anymore, but refuses to defend herself when she's accused of anything or even deny charges laid at her. The reason she likes the protagonist is because they trust her despite this and still wants to help.
- Not So Different: She admits that she has a lot in common with Kiara/Beast III/R since they're both creatures defined by pleasure. The big difference is that Meltryllis can love others while Kiara can only love herself.
- Pimped-Out Dress: She dons what is essentially a wedding dress in her Third Ascension.
- Power Degeneration: The damage done to her Saint Graph from time travelling and the high cost of mana needed to prevent the protagonist from digitizing causes her to slowly lose power over the course of the story, which is shown in gameplay with her level steadily dropping from 90 to 55 and her NP dropping from Level 5 to 1 between each story battle. She manages to power back up to Level 80 and NP 5 for the final fight against Beast III/R, but it's indicated this is very much her throwing everything she has on the line to make sure Kiara goes down for good this time without taking the protagonist down too.
- Really Gets Around: Possibly. She has a very high ranked Riding skill and when asked Nasu merely said 'figure it out for yourself why it's so high,' a comment that was eventually used with Medb, who confirms she's a Rider because she rides men. On the other hand, she hasn't existed for very long and we know she can't have slept with most of the people she's interacted with given that they're mostly either her sisters, BB, the Extra Player Character, and the protagonist.
- Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: In Passionlip's Interlude, she bails on BB when the Moon Cancer tries to get her to play the role of villain, stating that she's not interested and that she'll do whatever she wants whenever she wants, especially if it pisses off BB.
- Set Right What Once Went Wrong: In a previous timeline, the protagonist died against Kiara. In order to change events to hopefully result in their survival, she used Virgin Laser Palladion to travel back in time via FTL shenanigans and replaced her past self so that she could save them this time.
- She's Got Legs: Just like in CCC, her outfit emphasizes her legs, and she walks on and attacks with what can basically be described as blade-stilts.
- Smug Super: She was designed by BB to be the most "balanced" of all the Alter Egos and her draining abilities are even more powerful than BB. As a result, she has a high level of confidence in her abilities that manifests in her disrespect of BB and some level of condescension against her "sisters".
- Spell My Name with an "S":
- An example that applies to her NP; is it Sarasvati Meltout or Saraswati Meltout? It depends on how you want to romanize the name of the relevant goddess from Hindi. The katakana in Japanese lean a little toward "Saraswati", but there's still room either way. The translation went with "Sarasvati".
- For the longest time, the accepted spelling of her name was "Meltlilith" (and you'll probably still find some corners of this very wiki where she's called such), because her name was printed as such in anglo-romantic characters in certain portions of CCC and a lot of its promotional material in Japan. However, this was in fact a (sweeping-in-scope) error - her name was always meant to be "Meltryllis" (since all the Sakura Five are named after flowers and Melt is named for the amaryllis), but "ryllis" and "lilith" are spelled exactly the same way in katakana (リリス) which led to an internal mistake during development that got out of hand. As of F/GO, her name has been confirmed to be Meltryllis and is always printed as such in international versions of the game and in Japanese materials that use anglo-roman lettering (though "Meltlilith" still has a lot of inertia in the fan zeitgeist thanks to the mistake not being corrected for half a decade). Her release in the English server eventually used her correct name.
- Stripperific: She doesn't wear anything below her chest, as always. She at least at least wears a "proper" string undergarment (if made of metal) over her pelvis this time, rather than her infamous... pelvis clip from CCC itself.
- Took a Level in Kindness: During the SE.RA.PH. event she is far more mellow than she was in CCC as well as extremely loyal, though she pretends to be an evil scary psycho and the other Servants do treat her as a monster at first. However, it becomes clear that she's just being a tsundere for the most part and is genuinely trying to help with no thought for herself, leading Tristan and Gawain to relax around her at least a little. The version you can summon is a bit different because she lacks the story support's memories and bond with the protagonist, but by bond five she seems to have developed in the same way as her original.
- Tron Lines: In her final ascensions, the attacking implements of her legs gain a prominent blue glow.
- Tsundere: She is somewhat less violent and crazy than in CCC. Her words can be vicious and she puts major distance between herself and her Master, but she backtracks often on what she said when she feels she's being too harsh and she does seem to be affectionate in some weird ways. It's also clear that her ally version is incredibly devoted to the protagonist and has a huge crush on them, though she has to keep it as secret as she can because it's based on how the protagonist accepted and helped her without a second thought in a previous time loop.
- Undying Loyalty: Meltryllis in the SE.RA.PH. event is absolutely, completely loyal to the protagonist. She would die for them without a second thought, even though that's much more serious for her than a normal Servant. Throughout the event, though, she pretends it's just an alliance of convenience and that she's also super evil and an enemy of humanity, but the protagonist seems to understand her right from the beginning, which is why she's so loyal in the first place."No matter how hard things got, it was all so radiant. I felt like I could follow you to the ends of the earth. That's right. I swore I would fight any opponent so long as I had breath in my body. As horrible as things got, for me, they couldn't have been better... so long as that person was there with me."
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple, as she's based on BB, and thus Sakura.
- Younger Than They Look: She may be the second oldest of the Sakura Five, but she was basically created in her current form and has very little life experience. Even after her maturation before disappearing in CCC, she's still pretty oblivious sometimes as a result.
- Your Days Are Numbered: After her first trip back in time digitally her Saint Graph was irreparably damaged. As a result her functions and strength start to break down throughout the event. There's no way to save her, but BB does manage to make a copy of her fundamental abilities and register her as though she were a proper hero, allowing her to be summoned. However, there will be no continuity of memory, meaning the Meltryllis from SE.RA.PH. can be considered truly dead by the end of the event.
ID: No. 209
Command Cards: QQABB; (B)
Alignment: True Neutral
Origin: Japan (19th century)
First appearance: Fate/KOHA-ACE (as "Devil Saber")
Background development: Keikenchi
Illustrated by: Takashi Takeuchi (character), Shimaudon (sword)
Voiced by: Aoi Yuuki
An alternative version of Okita Souji, who has been transformed into a Counter Guardian. Her Saint Graph has been so extensively modified from her original being that she is classified as an Alter Ego instead of her usual Saber class. She represents a future possibility of Okita Souji: the person she may have become if she had not died at such a young age.
She was originally designed as a parody character named "Devil Saber" in KOHA-ACE. Her backstory and identity were changed so she could fit into the Grand Order universe, and she made her debut as "Okita Alter" in the third GUDAGUDA event as your main ally.
- Action Bomb: Her true nature as a Counter Guardian. She is summoned in the event as a one-time manifestation of the Counter Force, with a Saint Graph that would explode to annihilate the singularity if their forerunner, Ryouma Sakamoto, failed. This is why she has no memories or even experience of what or who she is at first - she was designed to be a bomb, so the Counter Force didn't bother summoning her with a complete Saint Graph.
- Adorkable: Despite being a more serious version of Okita, sometimes she ends up forgetting the name of her own Noble Phantasm and comes up with something else that ends with 'Beam'. Also, if her skill lines are any indication, she can fall asleep in the midst of battle."Umm... what was it? Hmmm.... I forgot! Finisher!/Eat this! MAJIN-SAN BEEEAAAAAAM!!!/SOMEWHAT AMAZING BEEEAAAAAM!!!"
- Alternate Self: Not just to Okita, but Devil Saber. Okita Alter is a parody character that appeared in the Fate/KOHA-ACE continuity, known as Devil Saber, born from the fusion of Okita and Nobunaga, and was created to kill the Fate franchise as a whole. Devil Saber's backstory was later changed for a more serious incarnation; Okita instead briefly became her Alter form as a last ditch effort to stop Neo Führer and his Caster. This was done so that she could become used in Fate Grand Order.
- Ambiguously Brown: Her skin is unusually tan and her hair has turned white in this form. Unlike EMIYA, who chocks this up to overuse of his projection magecraft, the most explanation Okita Alter gets is when she has a flashback to her old life while fighting her Saber counterpart where it's mentioned she was just born unusually tan presumably due to illness, which was part of why people figured she was basically a lost cause ready to die as an infant.
- Badass Boast: Has one as one of her battle start quotes. In the event itself, she says it when she regains her memories and true nature as a Counter Guardian."I am the one who cleaves demons, pierces gods, and manages the prayers of men. I am Majin Okita Souji."
- Balance Buff: Her second skill has been upgraded via Rank Up Quest, adding an additional 10%~20% ATK buff for three attacks within 3 turns to remedy her relatively poor NP damage output.
- BFS: This version carries with her an Oodachi longer than she is tall that was originally nameless but was named Rengokukennote by Nobunaga during the second half of the 3rd GUDAGUDA event after the Archer embedded it with half of her available magical energy. Notably it has an equally large sheath and the game pulls a cheat by never actually showing her pull it out; all of her animations either have it already out or in its sheath. Both Izo and Okita lampshade this by asking her if she even knows how to use that thing properly (though her struggles against them are due more to not remembering how to properly fight rather than impractically-long blades).
- Blade Spam: In contrast to her regular counterpart's "three thrusts existing at the same point in space at the exact same time", Okita Alter's Noble Phantasm opens with a furious barrage of slashes that cover the entire screen before she fires off her Sword Beam.
- But Now I Must Go: As with all Counter Guardians, she will fade away when her mission is finished. Unlike most Counter Guardians, Okita Alter is supposed to be detonated and annihilated from existence to end the singularity, but because of the protagonist's efforts and the encounter with the original Okita Souji, her Saint Graph grew in power and the Counter Force instead empowers her to finish off the singularity without detonating. She still fades away at the final chapter, but returns in the epilogue, albeit because of the fragility of her Saint Graph she won't become available for gameplay unless the player summons her through rolling, which gave her a more permanent Saint Graph.
- Cleavage Window: In reverse. Her outfit's window reveals the underside of her boobs rather than the top.
- Combat Stilettos: She wears absurdly tall heels in contrast to the original Okita's sandals.
- The Comically Serious: Even when she does silly things like waking up from a brief sleep in the middle of battle and forgetting the name of her own Noble Phantasm, she keeps her face stern and voice serious. It only enhances the comedic effect.(seriously brooding) "Hm... what was it... I forgot!"
- Contralto of Danger: Her voice is deeper and huskier than the normal Okita's, and lore-wise she's vastly more powerful than her vanilla self.
- Crazy-Prepared: Meta version: When Devil Saber was retooled into Okita Alter for Fate/KOHA-ACE, Keikenchi himself said her backstory was tweaked so she could be plausible enough to be summoned in this game if she ever needed to be. It seems to have paid off.
- Cry Cute: During the final chapter of the event, when she is fading away before the protagonist because her role was finished.
- Cuddle Bug: She is quite physically affectionate toward the protagonist.
- Dark-Skinned Blond: Like fellow Counter Guardian EMIYA.
- Deader Than Dead:
- Her Noble Phantasm, "Decisive Blade - Endless Three Stage", is capable of this, which is why it has Anti-World classification; according to her profile, "even things that do not exist and those that can not be forcibly removed from this world can be extinguished." This is a reference to the final battle of Fate/KOHA-ACE where she faced Maxwell's Demon - basically an unkillable concept in the form of a Servant - and killed it anyway.
- This is also supposed to be her final fate. In life, Okita was contracted into the Counter Force to gain a longer life; she became a Counter Guardian and has manifested across timelines to protect humanity to fulfill it. However, her contract is supposed to end in this event; she is summoned as an Action Bomb to end the singularity for this very reason because there will be no trace of her existence left if she does explode. Fortunately, the protagonist manages to avert this fate by strengthening her Saint Graph (with the help of the original Okita) and by giving their memories to Okita Alter to remain anchored into the world.
- Dual Wielding: Her Max Ascension card art has her wielding both her incredibly long nodachi and the comparatively small katana that she uses as a Saber. She doesn't actually use the katana in gameplay, though.
- Even the Girls Want Her: The second woman after Ushiwakamaru to have the trait, "Brynhildr's Beloved".
- Evil Costume Switch: Her blue haori and white garb are gone in place of black and red (and in higher ascensions, it goes black-and-white like Hijikata's)—although she is not evil at all.
- Fighting Clown: Her origin is in a gag manga; one of her skill activation animations has her dozing off in the middle of the fight before immediately standing upright and telling you that she wasn't sleeping, and she can also forget her Noble Phantasm's name while in the process of using it, prompting her to call it "Majin-san Beam" or "Something Cool/Amazing Beam". However, the silliness does not make her skills or NP any less dangerous gameplay wise.
- Glass Cannon: Stat-wise, Okita Alter boasts one of the highest effective ATK stats in the game when class modifiers are taken into account, only lagging behind only a few Avengers and Berserkers. Her health is also comparatively lower among 5-Stars as a result. In addition, her dodge skill is tied to her 1-Turn Noble Phantasm damage buff rather than a 3-turn crit damage buff, forcing her Master to choose between saving it for her Noble Phantasm barrage or using it to dodge a deadly attack. On the bright side, it's a one time dodge rather than a one turn dodge, meaning it's even less likely to be wasted than similar combo skills, though it means it probably won't save her if she's low on health and the last one standing.
- I Call It "Vera": Her sword is called Rengoku (Purgatory).
- Identity Amnesia: When she appears in the event, she has no memories of being the original Okita Souji besides her name, and even that she's flimsy on and needs the protagonist's assurance that she is Okita to be comfortable with it. It's because her Saint Graph is very deteriorated and fragile (represented in game with her being Level 1). This is much more significant than it seems at first.
- Living Weapon: Her sword, Purgatory, is sentient, reacts to her own mood, and talks in her Bond CE.
- Living on Borrowed Time: In more ways than the average Servant. During the event, Okita Alter's clash with the original Okita made bits of her past life return - it was shown that while Okita was born, her sister had prayed in a shrine for her to live. This established a contract between Okita and the Counter Force, allowing her to live longer and eventually become a Counter Guardian. However, her contract is supposed to end in this event, to become an Action Bomb to solve the singularity and annihilating herself out of existence. Although the protagonist's efforts allowed her to survive, her existence is very fragile and she doesn't have an idea how long she will stay in the world."The life I borrowed from the World will end here. Surely, nothing will remain for me."
- Magikarp Power: In-story, she starts out as a mere Level 1 Servant who's easily repelled by the other Servants she's pitted against. But repeated clashes with masters like Izo, Li Shuwen, and Okita herself reawaken Alter's memories and strengthen her Saint Graph enough to fight her own battles. And by the end, she's empowered by the Counter Force itself to strike down Mitsuhide once and for all.
- Master of None: In gameplay, Okita Alter is considered to be this when compared to the other Alter Egos. Despite her high-end ATK stat, her skillset means that she's lacking in sustained damage output. Her niche as an AOE farmer is outclassed by both Kiara and Kingprotea, who possess a better charge skill and more damage respectively, her single-target damage is far surpassed by Meltryllis and Sitonai, and both Kingprotea and Passionlip are more durable than her due to Okita's awkwardly constructed dodge skill. A Balance Buff remedied this a little by giving her an additional attack buff on her Persistence skill, but her performance is still considered "alright" at best.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Her Oodachi's name means Purgatory, as in the circle of Hell where sinners are made to repent.
- Nice Shoes: Okita Alter has black platform greaves but with the platform focused at the ball of the foot, rather than the heel or the entire sole. However, in her first appearance in KOHA-ACE, she was at that point so powerful that she could fly, so it didn't matter.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Her parody self is an Alter Servant brought about by a Fusion Dance between Okita and Nobunaga. Then her more serious incarnation adds five more Servants with a Holy Grail into the mix. And then here she is supported by the Counter Force, making her also a Counter Guardian. Presumably, the fact she's so many things at once (and likely a parody of such characters in general) is why she's an Alter Ego.
- No Sense of Personal Space: After an untold amount of time without interacting with anyone else, Okita Alter understandably doesn't have any problem with skin contact. Her idea of affection with the protagonist is to have them touch her, and she is quick to glomp them into a hug when she gets the chance to.
- Not So Stoic: Although she is supposedly an emotionless killer, it's clear she is nowhere as stoic or serious as she appears to be. While several lifetimes of battle as a Counter Guardian had hardened her, the experience didn't make her bitter, and she is not averse to nor repulsed by human interaction. It is worthy of note that Okita Alter is positively affectionate and compassionate to her Master even without raising the Bond Levels; she is just hesitant to bond with the protagonist due to the fragile nature of her existence.
- Overly Long Name: In the ''Fate/GUDAGUDA Order" comic, she introduces herself as "Majin Okita Souji Alternative". The GUDAGUDA Miss Majin Craft Essence then has her thinking that that is too long of a name and tries to think of something shorter.
- Palette Swap: Discussed and lampshaded within her debut event. Okita Alter's warm, dark colors are a complete palette inversion of the original Okita, as mentioned numerous times by Mash and da Vinci.
- Playing with Fire: Okita's sword and fists burn with black fire when she attacks.
- Power Makes Your Hair Grow: Compared to the short-cut hair of her Saber self, Okita Alter's hair extends down to and almost past her feet, only avoiding dragging along the ground since her heels extend her height a few more inches.
- Pun: She's a Sleepyhead who likes to remind herself to be awake because her name Okita is similar to the Japanese word 'to be awake', Okiru, when turned into past tense (Okitta).
- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Resorts to a one-handed version of this trope during one of her Quick attack animations.
- Rapunzel Hair: The only things keeping her hair from dragging on the ground during her 2nd Ascension are her absurdly tall Combat Stilettos.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: She wears nothing but black and red and gold in contrast to her original's blue haori and white garments. Subverted when it comes to her personality though, as she becomes surprisingly gentle and approachable.
- Samurai Ponytail: By her third Ascension, she ties her newly-grown hair into one, to match her new samurai-like outfit.
- Self-Deprecation: A meta version. In My Room, Okita states she dislikes the frustration of drawing blanks in a raffle store - which is basically a not-so-subtle jab at the gacha rates of the game.
- She Is All Grown Up: The original Okita died in her early twenties. Okita Alter didn't and lived a longer life before becoming a Counter Guardian. Aside from her improved skills that the original never got to master, she also states by her own words that she is bustier and taller than her Saber variant; the only explanation she gives is that she's probably on her "growth period".
- Sleepyhead: She winds up falling asleep a lot, even doing so while standing up for her idle animation, and one of her skill animations has her quickly snap to attention before going right back to sleep."Zzz......Hah! I'm not sleeping, I'm not sleeping. Sleep... I fell asleep!"
- Stealth Pun: Okita's name is homophonous with a word that means "awake" in Japanese. So, logically, Okita Alter would mean "sleep" - explaining the origin of her Sleepyhead tendencies.
- Sword Beam: A dark, powerful beam of Anti-World proportions. Which makes it ironic that Okita can finally have a Sword Beam, but at the cost of no longer being a Saber.
- Synchronization: Much like Emiya Shirou and Archer in the Unlimited Blade Works route of Fate/stay night, Okita Alter's clash with the original Okita causes their existence to synchronize. However, since Okita Alter's Saint Graph is the weaker one, it is her who ends up catching up and gaining skills from her original self, culminating in a Take Up My Sword moment below.
- Take Up My Sword: She's actually on the receiving end of this, taking the original Okita's haori to strengthen her Saint Graph and enter her 2nd Ascension during the event.
- Teleport Spam: Okita Alter has the upgraded, A-ranked version of Okita's Reduced Earth, named Furthest Earth. Instead of being rapid bursts of super-speed, it's an outright dimensional leap, said to be on the level of the Senjutsu. And she takes full advantage of such an ability, teleporting at every opportunity for attacks and her Noble Phantasm, and doing so at a speed that makes Saber Okita look slow.
- Theme Music Power-Up: "Decisive Blade", an original piece, which plays whenever she uses her NP - the full version of which doubles as her event's Grand Battle theme.
- Throwing Your Sword Always Works: She throws hers vertically to slash her opponent multiple times like a buzzsaw before she catches it.
- Time Abyss: Unlike her other self who wished she could to fight to the very end, she is bound as a Counter Guardian to fight several lifetimes of battle through different timelines. According to her final Bond's Craft Essence, she has already lost count of the number of battles she's participated in.
- Token Good Teammate: She's one of the few Alters who aren't classified as an evil version of their original counterpart.
- Is this personality-wise towards her fellow Counter Guardians EMIYA and Kiritsugu, lacking their cynicism gained from an eternity of service under the Counter Force.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Oden. She's eating it in a snack room if you ask her about what she likes and considers using the Holy Grail to wish for more oden during the summer months before destroying it.
- Undying Loyalty: Even without her memories to guide her, Okita Alter immediately latches onto the protagonist as her Master and resolves herself to do anything for them. She declares this in full once she reaches Bond Level 5, no longer hesitating to pledge her loyalty even if her existence is fragile."Even if this Saint Graph were to shatter, I would risk everything to protect Master and your world."
- Warrior Heaven: According to her Bond CE, she enjoys endless battles.
- What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: Also unlike other Counter Guardians turned Servants in the game, she's not emotionally damaged, just "blankly innocent" after countless battles void of anything else. Thus, affection is a surprise for her, but a welcome one.
- White Hair, Black Heart: Her hair has turned completely white. As a Counter Guardian, she's supposedly a remorseless weapon of destruction. Supposedly. She's actually still quite nice, more so than most Counter Guardians shown so far, completely lacking the bitterness of either EMIYA or Kiritsugu, merely being more subdued than her original counterpart.
- Your Days Are Numbered: Even after surviving the event, her existence is a fragile one because she was originally summoned with a deteriorated Saint Graph heavily modified to detonate itself, although she gains a more permanent one upon being summoned by Chaldea's system.
ID: No. 164
Command Cards: QABBB; (B)
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Origin: SE.RA.PH (Original creation using elements from Hindu and Norse mythology)
First appearance: Fate/EXTRA CCC
Background development: Kinoko Nasu
Illustrated by: Arco Wada
Voiced by: Yui Ogura
An Alter Ego of Love and Hate created by BB by amalgamating the Servant data of Parvati, Brynhildr and Durga. Her oversized breasts and metallic nails leave quite the impression.
She has the personality of a young, innocent and introverted girl who is looking for true love. Unfortunately, like all Alter Egos one of her senses has been dulled: in the case of Passionlip, it is her "perception of self". Her mind cannot comprehend the monstrous claws that act as her arms, instead seeing herself as just an ordinary girl. Thus she cannot understand why others fear her, and has accidentally killed anyone she has gotten close enough to hold by crushing them with her strength. Her pure feelings of love are twisted by confusion into hatred and blame towards the world for not accepting her.
By the time she can be summoned by Chaldea, she has slowly begun to accept the true nature of her body and has started to act more cautiously so she does not damage her surroundings or hurt other people. The fact that her claws are so large, unwieldy and unfit for anything other than destruction depresses her, but she still seeks the love of someone who can unconditionally accept her, and wishes for the day she can acquire a normal body.
She's an antagonist in Fate/EXTRA CCC. During the SE.RA.PH event, she is an antagonist but later becomes an ally.
- Adaptational Modesty: In this game, she's given a top that covers her chest while still showing off some cleavage, while her third ascension gives her a dress that covers most of her chest aside from some Sideboob. This is very modest compare to her previous appearance in CCC, where she wears almost nothing up top except for two straps that cover her nipples.
- Artificial Limbs: Her hands are giant claws representing the ten blades of Durga. They're extremely unwieldy and unfit for anything but destruction, which depresses her. She just wants to hold hands with her Master, but as a memorable Bad End in CCC demonstrated, merely touching Passionlip's hands could result in the Protagonist's arm exploding in a shower of gore.
- Balance Buff:
- Her Rank Up Quest not only increases her NP's damage, but also boosts the party heal on her Overcharge, making her even more of a Stone Wall than before.
- Masochistic Constitution A was buffed via Interlude to Masochistic Constitution A+. It gains a new effect where if she is below 50% health, she gains an attack buff that scales up to 30% at max rank, alongside having a secondary value where if she is at 1 hp, she gains even more attack then before that scales up to 50% at max rank. The result is that her role as a tank makes her even better since she actually now directly gains a benefit from taunting her enemy into attacking her, and gives incentives to not use her taunt and apply a evade skill to her.
- Birds of a Feather: With Tamamo Cat. Both are discarded alter egos (of BB and Tamamo-no-Mae respectively), have similar friendly personalities, and share a love of cooking even though they both have big monster hands. It took all of one conversation for them to become best friends.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: When she speaks her mind to others she tends to be rather insulting even if she's meek about it. Then apparently she beats them up when they get mad and attack her.
- Character Development: She's retained the development she got during CCC, in the words of BB in Passionlip's Interlude, "after a lot of shit went down", meaning she recognizes her monstrous form for what it is, having shed the delusion she was under during CCC where she believed she was entirely physically normal. As a result she's much more cautious regarding her abilities, seems to be less inclined towards destruction and wishes to gain a normal body.
- Combat Medic: The overcharge effect of her NP is a full party heal despite it involving her rocket punching and then crushing the enemy. It can reach as high as 7000, which is pretty impressive.
- Combat Sadomasochist: The true power of her Masochistic Constitution, as revealed in her Interlude, isn't just to attract and take damage from the enemy, but to convert that damage into power for her next attack (and also that she gets pleasure from the pain too). The protagonist has the option to directly compare it to fellow Combat Sadomasochist Spartacus, and it's reflected by the skill gaining a Balance Buff giving her an attack buff is her health is low.
- Cute and Psycho: Not nearly as much as she used to be, but shades of it persist. She's timid and generally very affectionate, but she also has a rather blase attitude towards destruction, surprisingly aggressive battle lines and actually threatens to trap the protagonist inside her Hammerspace chest if they keep staring at her chest, which embarrasses her, though at least they can be retrieved now if she does that.
- Does Not Know Her Own Strength: She's much better about this than in CCC, but occasionally she forgets in the heat of the moment she could easily tear someone limb from limb. In SE.RA.PH, she yells she's gonna shake some sense into Arnold Beckham after he gives the protagonist some disrespect when they see him again in person, but Meltryllis notes that if she does that, she'll most likely shake more out of him than into him.
- Gag Boobs: In addition to her claws, she's also best known for her absurd bust size, 160cmnote . After having learned about how monstrous her body is, she tries to draw attention away from them.
- Good Thing You Can Heal: Her NP Overcharge heals her and the party between 2000 to 4000 HP (3000 to 7000 HP after her Rank Up Quest).
- Hidden Disdain Reveal: She might be more deferential to her "Mother" BB than Meltryllis on the surface, but her Interlude makes it clear deep down she hates BB just as much as her sister.
- Hidden in Plain Sight: She actually has Presence Concealment, a skill usually reserved for Assassins, and she has it at A+ rank, which is on par with Jack the Ripper. It allows her to remain undetected even in broad daylight, unless she's not careful enough with her hands. That said, when she isn't hiding, her "Masochistic Constitution" skill instead makes her more obvious.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: Her wish is to become a normal human because she knows that her body is freakish. She can't even hold hands with someone she loves and is very uncomfortable about her massive breasts.
- In-Series Nickname: Referred to by others as "Lip".
- Ludicrous Gibs: At least as close as F/GO usually comes to it outside of Emiya Alter's NP - the final swing of each of Passionlip's normal attacks is accompanied by a very visible blood splatter effect, driving home how destructive and painful attacks with her hands are.
- Marshmallow Hell: In the middle of her Extra attack, she will do this by throwing herself breasts-first into her enemy. Unfortunately for the receiving party, her breasts are so heavy that it acts less like the infinitely soft heaven it should be and more like getting hit with a large blunt object; objects in this case.
- Meaningful Rename: Her Noble Phantasm has been renamed from "Brynhild Romantia: Until Death Do Us Part" to "Brynhild Romantia: Even If Death Do Us Part" which not only conveniently gets around the issue of two different Servants sharing a Noble Phantasm with the same name, but also signifies the change in how Passionlip views romance post-CCC.
- Mighty Glacier: Powerful as her hands are, they're not suited for fighting fast opponents that she can't focus on. It may also be the reason she has a BBBQA deck.
- Minidress of Power: After her first ascension, she trades out her striped ruffle skirt for a sleeker double-sash skirt, which is much more obvious in her third ascension. And needless to say, that's a miniskirt attached to a lot of power.
- Monstrous Humanoid: Her essential tragedy. She weighs a literal metric ton, her hands are as big as she is, are only really good for being weapons and for normal humans are fatal to even touch, and she possesses a Victoria's Secret Compartment that is more like Hammerspace than anything. All of this makes it nearly impossible for her to act like a normal human - her hands are simply too destructive to touch a fellow person (and are horrifying besides), and hugging her is extremely risky because you can fall into her black-hole like Breast Valley, though at least she knows how to get people back out of it now. Worse, perhaps, is that since her GO appearance is after CCC, she's finally become aware of this aspect of herself and she's not happy about it.
- Never My Fault: Her interlude makes a point of noting how she pisses off everyone around her by subtly poking at their sore points and then denying any responsibility when they get angry. She insists that she's purely a victim.
- Oblivious to Love: She completely fails to notice how awkward Tristan is around her and seems to overlook him almost entirely. Coupled with Meltryllis' inability to tell he was worried about her as well, BB says they need more emotional education.
- One-Man Army: Meltryllis notes that if it wasn't for Passionlip's childishness holding her back, she would be the most dangerous out of the five Alter Egos due to her toolset and enormous power, and true to form once that gets removed in SE.RA.PH, she becomes a juggernaut, crushing the entire second set of 128 Servants summoned by BB.
- Rocket Punch: One of her primary attacks with her massive claw-hands is to fire them in this style, and it's her typical leading Buster. Her Noble Phantasm involves repeated strikes of this sort followed by attempting to crush the foe in her grip.
- She's Got Legs: Not as much as her sister, but her new outfit has them covered in what appears to be pantyhose, to better show them off. Her third outfit has her change to much more sheer, translucent white hose and put on some very foot-exposing heels.
- Ship Tease: With Gawain. One of Meltryllis's dialogues when talking about Gawain is stating that Passionlip seems happy whenever she's with him, with the added jealousy mixed in due to the fact that she found her prince before she does.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Her third skill runs into a classic katakana issue (that long-time gamers may recognize from a certain Mega Man boss): in kana, it is spelled トラッシュ＆クラッシュ - "Trash" is reasonably obvious, but the second word could be crash, clash or even crush. Crush is probably what Nasu was going for, but it's usually rendered as crash because it sounds better.
- Stone Wall: Though her health is very low and she has no defensive bonuses, her skill set is designed to make her the party tank with debuff resistance, a taunt, multiple defense buffs and damage cut. She also gains NP quickly when struck and her NP has a party heal attached. Add onto the fact that the Alter Ego class is only weak to Berserkers, and Passionlip can potentially rival Mash in terms of tanking.
- Stripperific: The trope seems to be defied on her part. Unlike in CCC, she knows how her body looks and is attempting to dress more modestly, including clothing that tries to deemphasize her breasts. Her final outfit more resembles a party/clubbing dress than anything, which is pretty modest as far as this game goes.
- Super Strength: Her raw physical power is absolutely absurd even among Servants. In CCC, she tries to use Robin Hood's No Face May King (a Noble Phantasm) as a bow for her hair, but ends up ripping it apart and destroying it by accident. Her unique skill, Trash and Crash, is an evolution of Monstrous Strength that allows her to crush anything between her hands into a tiny cube. Note that this is based on perspective, so anything that she can get between her fingers (such as an entire battlefield if she has a high vantage point) can be compacted, albeit it takes much longer for larger objects. When used by Kazuradrop in Fox Tail, this ability can even crush Kingprotea.
- Technicolor Eyes: Pink.
- Tron Lines: She's gained these on her fingers (and the heels of her shoes) compared to her first appearance.
- The Unintelligible: When she's first encountered in the SE.RA.PH chapter proper, she's unable to actually communicate due to the head restraint she's been fitted with. She ends up rather like Tiamat, wherein she can only say variations of "aaa". This even extends to her battle voiceover, where her normal playable VO is replaced by grunts and other sounds. Once she's freed from it, she's as intelligent as anyone.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Passionlip's fighting style is essentially just her swinging her massive claws at a target and tearing them apart, but her sheer strength and attack power means she doesn't need finesse to rip anything but the hardest enemy to shreds.
- Victoria's Secret Compartment: This is one of her core skills - she can actually store vast amounts of material (data in CCC) within the space between her breasts, far more than would be obvious to the naked eye. One of her purposes in CCC was as, basically, a trash compactor, as she'd crush things with her claws and then store the cubes in the infinite space of her cleavage. It's even a skill in her game mechanics - it grants her a flat defensive bonus for three hits over five turns, and allows her to nullify three debuffs over the same period. She also timidly threatens to stuff the protagonist in there if they keep staring at her breasts. Her profile in GO, however, mentions that if her Master happens to fall in, unlike in CCC they actually could be gotten out, none the worse for wear.
- Visual Innuendo: According to her artist Arco Wada, for her Final Ascension art, the position of that one cherry that has fallen down to where her breast rests against her arm is positioned right where her nipple would be.
- Wolverine Claws: Her hands are massive, destructive talons that can crush literally anything that fits inside them, or that she perceives as fitting inside them.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple, as she's based on BB, and thus Sakura.
- Younger Than They Look: Not only is she the youngest of the Sakura Five, but she was basically created as an adult. Even after becoming less of a monster, she's still pretty oblivious as a result.
ID: No. 167
Command Cards: QAABB; (A)
Alignment: Chaotic Evil
Origin: Japan (Original creation)
First Appearance: Fate/EXTRA CCC
Background development: Kinoko Nasu
Illustrated by: Arco Wada
Voiced by: Rie Tanaka
Her debut largely assumes that you've already played Fate/EXTRA CCC and the SE.RA.PH chapter, so beware unmarked spoilers for those two stories.
Kiara is a talented hacker and cult leader. A true Dark Messiah, she is a masochist and narcissist who twists the pursuit of happiness into an all-consuming insanity of carnal desire. In Fate/EXTRA CCC she is one of the principal agents behind the Far Side Incident upon the Moon Cell Automaton, where she attempted to seize the power of creation and impose her twisted perception of love upon the world. At the climax of the incident, she assimilated the data of the primordial goddesses of creation into herself and ascended to something close to a True Demon, but was defeated.
The version of Kiara who appears in Grand Order is from an alternative history and so is slightly more subdued and willing to follow a Master, though her personality is largely unchanged. Through certain circumstances, she has inherited the memories of her Fate/EXTRA CCC counterpart.
She debuted in SE.RA.PH as the event story's Big Bad and later became an obtainable Servant after leaving behind a portion of her data to be summoned as an Alter Ego. She also appeared in Tokugawa's World-Changing Labyrinth - Ooku event as the main Servant companion of the protagonist.
- Aluminum Christmas Trees: Yes, a Buddhist sex cult existed in the 12th century (and possibly today).
- Anti-Antichrist: As close as she can be. Her Nega-Savior passive skill grants her the same offensive advantage against Rulers as an Avenger. As the name indicates, this would apply to the Saver class as well, but we haven't encountered any of those in FGO. Yet. While she still has the capacity to retake her Beast III-R form, she deliberately chooses not too for the sake of her master, and instead decides to help humanity as a servant of Chaldea.
- Armor-Piercing Attack: Her Noble Phantasm ignores both invincibility and defense buffs, making it one of the few Noble Phantasms to be completely unavoidable and unable to be mitigated. The only way to reduce damage is to debuff her Attack or reduce her NP strength.
- Badass Preacher: A practicing Buddhist with sufficient knowledge of other religions to act as a multi-denominational pastor on Seraphix and fights with energy blasts, giant summoned energy hands, and Demon Pillars.
- Balance Buff: Her first Rank Up Quest takes a turn off the cooldown of her Clairyovance (Beast) skill while simultaneously adding an Arts resistance reduction to the enemy to make her Area of Effect NP hit even harder. Despite its relatively modest value on a single target (30% at max), it's still a welcome addition. Her second Rank Up Quest takes a turn off the cooldown of her Five Approaches to Meditation skill while simultaneously adding a buff removal for all enemies, which can genuinely make her a terrifying force to be reckoned with now.
- Brought Down to Badass: She still has several of her Beast III-R skills and abilities like Independent Manifestation and control over Demon Pillars, they've been severely limited due to her vow and different Class.
- Call-Back: Several allusions are made to her relationship with Andersen in CCC and The Little Mermaid.
- Several characters remark that Andersen should be used to ward her off.
- Since the GO Kiara inherited the memories of her CCC self, she has contempt for her time as his Master. Though she actively denies the two have ever met.
- Her Bond CE is the copy of The Little Mermaid she was given by one of the cult's followers. The profile notes that it was the item she cherished most during her childhood as she admired the fairy tales written by Andersen and clung to her dreams of being like them as she was dying from a disease.
- The material books note that because Andersen had significant time without Kiara's presence in this game, he's become just different enough for Kiara to be knocked off-kilter by the lack of total abuse in his responses.
- Cast from Hit Points: Her Goddess Metamorphosis skill grants her a wide plethora of benefits (Invincibility, increased critical damage, increased NP generation, increased debuff resistance, and increased healing received), but inflicts 3000 damage on herself. Fortunately, she can heal off the damage with her NP.
- Combat Sadomasochist: Good lord, just listen to her lines in battle. Her reaction to getting damaged is to giggle erotically, and she shouts for more if she gets hit by a Noble Phantasm.
- Combat Tentacles: She can summon massive Demon Pillar tendrils for several attacks.
- The Corrupter: She wants her Master to become corrupted by her and fall prey to their desire, and serves as their own personal Mara to try to take them from the proper path to enlightenment.
- Dark and Troubled Past: She was raised in a Buddhist cult practicing rampant sex all around her, heavily neglected by her parents and to top it all off, dying from a curable disease. After she finally got treated and began work to help others, she was hunted down by several organizations who didn't understand why she was doing such work, hence her joining Seraphix to run away from her pursuers.
- A Date with Rosie Palms: Her final Ascension art shows her left hand on her crotch, implying that she's masturbating. Her facial expression supports this as well.
- A Day in the Limelight: She's Chaldea's only available Servant at the outset of "Tokugawa's Labyrinth", making her humanity's only hope of survival for a time.
- Dramatic Irony: In "Tokugawa's Labyrinth", Kasuga no Tsubone believes that Kiara must be a high priest or even a representation of the Buddha himself due to her techniques and power. Only the protagonist possibly has an inkling that she's anything but a devout, kindly nun and Kiara milks it for all its worth, showing false humility and claiming that her sect is just a "teensy" bit special.
- She expresses the desire to become an Alter Ego at the end of the SE.RA.PH chapter.
- In gameplay, when fighting her, her NP would show Earth's continents facing the wrong side implying there would be a playable version with the continents corrected.
- Form-Fitting Wardrobe: It's probably reasonable to assume that no Japanese Buddhist nun ever wears an outfit as body-hugging and revealing as Kiara does in first ascension.
- Giant Hands of Doom: Several of her attacks have her summoning giant energy hands that grab, strike, and/or explode to damage the enemy.
- Good Thing You Can Heal: Her NP's Overcharge heals her for up to 6000 HP.
- Hand Seals: She performs this when using skills.
- Hazy Feel Turn: While she is a summonable servant and trying to be good for her master, she still has the capacity to return to being a Beast, and as her Valentine's scene demonstrates, is only a hair-trigger away from snapping and doing so. Not to mention, she still retains her behavior from both her CCC counterpart and her time as a Beast, and is only restraining herself via a vow of devotion until the point her master snaps or perishes, in which she'll return to being her former self. The Tokugawa Labyrinth event demonstrates that she actually is sincere about following through on these oaths all the way to the end, with her regretting that they had to be broken in order to fend off Kama/Mara. However, in the same event, Kama notes that the motivation for bringing her to Chaldea is not really the self-professed goodwill that Kiara preaches; it's mainly from the desire to have Kama suffer and the pleasure derived from that.
- Heroic Sacrifice: She sacrifices herself to Kama/Mara's flames while managing to use enough power to get everyone else out of harm's way by throwing them all the way back to the labyrinth's entrance.
- Holding Back the Phlebotinum: She has the potential to ascend back to Beast status, which would make her stronger than nearly anything the protagonist would face. Of course, then the protagonist would have to face her.
- Implausible Deniability: She claims to have never met Andersen ever even while listing insults he's lobbed at her in CCC."Oh. So that boy is named Andersen? I do not know. I do not know of that person at all. Melons, cow-woman, a whore who crawled out of a sewer... No, I do not remember those words at all! As such, please do not invite him into the same room, or especially the same party as me. Do you understand? ... For mercy's sake."
- Kamehame Hadoken: Her Extra Attack, after she Flash Steps the enemy with physical strikes, has her create and fire a beam of purple energy.
- Kung-Fu Wizard: She combines close quarter combat with demonic magic in her attacks.
- Lightning Bruiser: She has fairly high HP and good Attack, and her third skill and Noble Phantasm improve her survivability as well, not to mention being able to deal super effective damage to six classes at once.
- Morality Chain: She wants to restrain her usual cosmic-scale nymphomania for as long as the contract lasts, but it's still very much there. In fact, she eagerly awaits the day her Master snaps and gives in to his/her desire voluntarily, as that would let her satisfy her lust without actually breaking her vow. However, like the Buddhist Mara, she also cheers on her Master as they resist her advances.
- Mother of a Thousand Young: Her Noble Phantasm reveals the countless Demon Pillars she has spawned inside, after consuming Zepar with her lust.
- Naughty Nuns: Not only are her outfits designed to invoke as much lust as possible, her Buddhist sect believes in sex as a way to attain enlightenment. Keep in mind, that is the exact opposite of what Buddhism is aboutnote (In fact, Saver was listed as her worst possible opponent, as he reached the real Nirvana and is thus immune to carnal desire and her supernatural charms).
- No-Sell: Her Nega Saver ability allows her to completely shut down the class skills of the Ruler and Saver classes. This doesn't mean she automatically wins, however, just that she can ignore abilities like True Name Discernment and Counter Hero.
- Promoted to Playable: So far she's one of two Beastsnote to become playable after beating them. Though both are changed from their original classes, they retain many of their Beast-centric skills.
- Purple Is Powerful: Her energy attacks are often a purple/black, and she is a potential Beast.
- Red Herring: She is stated in the material books to have the capacity to ascend as Beast III/R again, but chooses not to in order to fulfill her vow to serve as a servant. She briefly contemplates doing so to match her counterpart, Beast III/L, but in the end leaves the protagonist with some parting words of advice in the middle of a Heroic Sacrifice.
- Redemption Demotion: Just like Amakusa, Kiara is a nightmare to fight as an enemy (as seen in her Beast III-R incarnation), but not too great in your party otherwise. Although the Alter Ego Kiara can potentially can be more terrifying enemy than her Beast self (as her NP can pierce both defenses and invincibility, making it completely unstoppable, something that the Beast version lacked).
- Reformed, but Rejected: If you choose to say offering the protagonist a Valentine's chocolate isn't like her, she's offended because the gesture was sincere and says 'Fine, you want me to act like myself? You do remember that 'myself' is a horrible rape monster, right?' with the scene basically giving you a bad ending where she goes all Beast III-R on you again. Of course, it doesn't actually affect anything beyond the scene itself.
- She's Got Legs: Her nun habit has a large slit to show off her legs.
- Superpowered Evil Side: She still has the potential to become Beast III/R again, but deliberately restrains herself to serve as the player's Servant.
- Tactical RockPaperScissors: She is unique amongst the Alter Egos as her Nega-Savior passive skill grants her increased damage against Rulers, making her able to dish out super effective damage against six different Servant classes (the Rider triangle, Berserkers, Rulers and Foreigners). The Summer 2018 event features her as a Moon Cancer raid boss while retaining her Nega-Saver passive, making her a surprisingly annoying opponent to face.
- Theme Music Power-Up: "The Goddess Metamorphosis" from CCC plays when she uses her Noble Phantasm.
- Un-person: Due to the events of the SE.RA.PH singularity being corrected upon its completion, everyone aside from the protagonist is unaware as to who she really is. The Tokugawa Labyrinth event has a Continuity Nod to this, in that no one in Chaldea knows her true nature, and consider her just a mysterious nun Servant that mysteriously joined Chaldea one day.
- Wistful Amnesia: Nobody in Chaldea has concrete memories of her since technically the CCC event never happened. Ritsuka possibly does but they don't tell anyone.
- Vagina Dentata: The Grand Order version of Heaven's Hole has her open a giant hole shaped like one to suck the enemy inside her body.

Alignment: Chaotic Good
Origin: Ainu Mythology (Sitonai), Norse Mythology (Freyja), Finnish Mythology (Louhi), Original Creation (Illya)
First appearance: Fate/stay night (as Illyasviel "Illya" von Einzbern)
Background development: Hikaru Sakurai
Illustrated by: BLACK
Voiced by: Mai Kadowaki
A Pseudo-Servant composed of three Divine Spirits amalgamating within an incredibly high-tier homunculus. Her True Name is registered as Sitonai from Ainu myth, a Dragon Slayer who saved her village by killing a giant serpent monster along with her favorite dog. Supporting her are the Norse goddess Freyja and Louhi, an evil witch queen of Finnish myth, also said to an alter-ego of the goddess Loviatar. While it is possible for any of the three aspects to manifest within this Alter Ego, for this summon, the main personality is one taken after Illyasviel von Einzbern, the Master of Heracles in a certain Holy Grail War.
She debuted in Lostbelt No. 2, Götterdämmerung, as an NPC ally, and appears in the "Oniland" event for Halloween 2018; she enters the gacha at the same time, and becomes a permanent story unlock afterwards.
- Bears Are Bad News: Due to the influence of both Louhi and Freyja, Sitonai's dog has transformed into a polar bear. She named it Shirou.
- BFS: One of her swords is much longer than herself.
- Body to Jewel: While not shown in the story or used in gameplay, her profile does confirm that she has Freyja's ability to shed red gold as tears.
- Bow and Sword, in Accord: Uses a bow and a sword interchangeably, and uses both together during her NP.
- Breath Weapon: Shirou can breathe a torrent of ice and wind as part of Sitonai's Extra attack.
- Canis Major: Even back when he was a dog, Shirou is still large enough for Sitonai to ride on top of him.
- Composite Character: Illya is possessed by three goddesses, Sitonai, Freyja, and Louhi.
- Double Unlock: Only obtainable in the story gacha after completing the second Lostbelt (barring special events like "Oniland", where she's available to everyone). This is especially notable in that, thanks to this requirement, she has the honor of becoming the game's very first non-limited Alter Ego Servant. Notably the time between her debut and playable appearance was three months, leaving Götterdämmerung for a short time as the only main story chapter besides Solomon that didn't have a story-locked Servant in the gacha.
- Emotional Powers: Her Emotional Freezing skill comes from Illya's sadistic side where her heart of ice can sometimes manifest as different things like swords or armor.
- Fingerless Gloves: At her first two Ascensions, although she trades them off to snow mittens at third.
- Fragile Speedster: Stat-wise, her Agility, Luck, and NP are all A while also having EX Ranked Mana, but at the cost of D Ranked Endurance and E Ranked Strength.
- Horse of a Different Color: Sitonai rides a bear into battle. It's supposed to be a dog, but the presence of the other two goddesses caused him to manifest as a bear instead. He's also a Noble Phantasm according to her profile.
- An Ice Person: Being a combination of three goddesses from the north, it's not surprising that she has ice powers. Some of her attacks has her creating chunks of ice, and her Noble Phantasm animation has her firing an arrow that becomes a giant icicle that pierces the opponent. Her Snow Fairy skill allows her to encase the target in ice, even allies as projection, and her second Noble Phantasm Pohjola Fimbul: Freeze, Forces of Heaven has her turning a nation above the ground into an immobile world of silence where even the day and night are lost, combining Louhi sealing away the Sun and the Moon and Illya's imagined landscape of ice and snow.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Her Noble Phantasm involves impaling her target on a massive icicle to hold them in place while she prepares for the final part of the attack.
- Meaningful Name: She states she named her polar bear "Shirou" after Illya's memories of Shirou.
- Just for Pun, it's also a near-homophone for shiro ("white"), since he's a shirokuma ("white bear" or polar bear).
- Line-of-Sight Name: Since she's not really Illya, she chose her True Name based on whomever Illya resembled most out of the three possessing spirits - Sitonai in this case. She has no problem with (and in fact prefers) being referred to as Illya though.
- Little Bit Beastly: Upon her third Ascension, she now sports a pair of long animal ears the same colour as her hair. They going down either side of her head due to being pushed down by her hat.
- Long-Lost Relative: Because one of her component Divine Spirits is Freyja, she's technically Proper Human History Skadi's stepdaughter. Scathach-Skadi never actually married and became such in her Lostbelt, but learning about their connection thanks to Ophelia has her spare Sitonai and lock her away in the dungeons rather than kill her.
- Mystical White Hair: What with being both Illya and a trio of goddesses, natch.
- Nice Hat: At her third Ascension, Sitonai switches out her headband with a fancy blue hat.
- Occult Blue Eyes: At her third Ascension, her red eyes turn a startling blue, which fits with her status as a vessel for multiple divine beings and powerful ice wielders.
- Older Than They Look: Applies on multiple levels - not only are all of the deities cohabiting this body quite old and powerful (being from some of the world's oldest religions) but it's clear that the host who has become a pseudo-Servant for them is none other than the original stay night Illya, who despite appearances was eighteen years old during her most famous adventure - quite unlike kaleid Illya who actually is the child she appears to be."Ehehe, I'm an "onee-san" compared to you, so make you sure you listen to me properly, okay? After all, the punishments I deal out are quite harsh."
- Other Me Annoys Me: Averted; one of her lines if you have Illya and/or Chloe is politely answering their question that she's not the same type of magical girl as they are.
- Power Dyes Your Hair: At her third Ascension, her hair changes from white to more of a blue-silver.
- Protectorate: Due to using Illya's body, Heracles is determined to protect her as seen in Lostbelt 2 where they face the protagonist in their subconscious.
- Situational Sword: Her Noble Phantasm "Optateshke Okimunpe: Howl my Friend, my Power" can reduce the enemy's NP gauge if it has the Dragon trait.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Courtesy of the incredible vagaries, and indeed ongoing academic debate, on the best ways of representing Ainu speech in romanized letters and because Ainu syllabary does not match 1:1 to standard Japanese (which is still often used to represent it in writing).Fun Fact! In katakana, the Servant's name is spelled シトナイ, which works out to "Shitonai"; however, the syllable in Ainu usually represented by シ is a bit closer to a true "si" sound in anglo-roman spelling and syllabary. As a result, the generally accepted spelling to date among English speakers for the character is "Sitonai". You can, however, even make a case for "Sitonay"! The localization goes with "Sitonai".
- Split-Personality Team: Sitonai, Freya and Louhi all share Illya's body in seeming alliance, though Sitonai is the predominant personality as she manifests the strongest. Despite this she still tells the player to refer to her as Illya, and has a number of Illya's mannerisms and thoughts. Each goddess' major trait is also pointed out in her profile to be the same as a major side of Illya's personality. She does complain that the downsides are that the goddesses "never shut up" and can be compared to roommates always fighting over something in her mind.
- Stripperific: Her final ascension art has her wearing a small bra and a cloth around her waist, and nothing else, apparently her sleepwear if her expression is any indication.
- Token Evil Teammate: Among the three figures cohabiting Illya. Sitonai is a great hero of the Ainu, and while Freyja can be mercurial (ala Ishtar), in general she was portrayed in a positive light even in the original sagas and in modern times is often explicitly heroic. Louhi, meanwhile, is an incredibly evil witch in Finnish mythology with ties to Loviatar, the goddess of death and disease. To date, though, Louhi hasn't done that much either way.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair turns a blue-silver color in her third ascension.
