Fanfic / RWBY: Epic of Remnant

Go To

RWBY: Epic of Remnant is a crossover between RWBY and Fate/Grand Order by Doctor Snake Eater.

During the final battle against Tiamat in Babylonia, Gudako and her Servants fall into her Black Mud. Angra Mainyu tries to save them by drawing them into his Reality Marble, but something strange happens and they get transported to the world of Remnant. Avenger Angra Mainyu, Archer EMIYA Alter, Berserker Lancelot, and Assassin Hassan of the Cursed Arm wake up to find their Master Gudako has been damaged by the Black Mud and is in a coma. Even more shocking, the four Servants have been turned into human teenagers, though they retain their powers. After defeating some Grimm, Ozpin finds them and offers to provide Gudako with medical attention if they will become students at Beacon Academy, which they grudgingly accept. They arrived a few days before Volume 1 of RWBY starts.


RWBY: Epic of Remnant contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Early Appearance: One of Gudako's Servants was Rider Ivan the Terrible, even though he doesn't get summoned until the Cosmos in the Lostbelt storyline. It is also mentioned that Gudako has a Foreigner, later confirmed to be Abigail Williams, even though she is not met until the Salem event.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Cinder Fall loses her left arm after her Bullhead was shot down by EMIYA Alter.
  • Asshole Victim: Hassan of the Cursed Arm uses Zabaniya to kill a racist who was attacking a little Faunus girl. Hassan points out no one would miss him.
  • Assimilation Plot: The Oprichniki seize the one White Fang fighter to successfully kill one of them and prepare to convert him into a replacement.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Realizing his suit of armor stands out, Lancelot goes to a clothing store and buys a black business suit with a purple tie. He kicks ass in it.
  • Advertisement:
  • Bar Brawl: Lancelot participates in Yang Xiao Long's fight in Junior's club seen in the Yellow Trailer. It ends with them defeating Melanie, Miltia, and Junior. Lancelot then claims Junior's rocket launcher as a trophy.
  • Bayonet Ya: EMIYA Alter has the swords Kanshou and Bakuya attached to his handguns. At Ruby Rose's insistence, he adds blades to his BFG.
  • Berserk Button: Lancelot gets triggered whenever anything reminds him of Arthur. Angra Mainyu points out that since it's a common name, he should work on his temper.
  • BFG: Ruby Rose helps EMIYA Alter build an anti-tank rifle that's 6 feet 10 inches long, modeled after the Type 97 Automatic Cannon. It's single shot, but it fires Noble Phantasms.
  • The Cameo: Chaldea's other Master, Ritsuka, appears in flashbacks.
  • Cannibalism Superpower: Hassan is able to gain people's knowledge by eating their hearts. He does this to the racist he kills. Though disgusted by the man's memories, it helps him understand Remnant a little better.
  • Chick Magnet: Lancelot is very handsome and has nearly any girl he meets swooning. He even charms Glynda Goodwitch.
  • Clothing Damage: After her exposure to the Black Mud, Gudako's hairband, sleeves, leggings, and shoes are destroyed, and the rest of her clothes are ragged.
  • Commonality Connection: EMIYA Alter befriends Ruby Rose due to their mutual love of weapons, especially guns.
  • Converse with the Unconscious: Angra Mainyu visits Gudako in the infirmary and says he wishes he was better so he would have been able to help her better, then talks about how he and the others will be students for a while. When he leaves the room, Gudako smiles.
  • Crash-Into Hello:
    • EMIYA Alter meets Ruby Rose when she bumps into him. While he just sees her as an ally, she gets a slight crush on him.
    • When Ruby ditches Jaune Arc during orientation, he bumps into Pyrrha Nikos and they quickly become friends.
  • Culture Clash:
    • Hassan's mask is wired into his head, and even if it wasn't, it is a part of his culture, so he refuses to part with it. Some people take issue with it because it makes him resemble a member of the dreaded White Fang.
    • After EMIYA Alter and Ruby Rose crafted his BFG, she insisted they add their symbols as a stamp on it. As part of his pragmatic personality, he suggested they overlay their symbols on top of each other so that the stamp would be smaller and cheaper. She blushes and says in Remnant, only married couples do that, annoying him.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Taiyang Xiao Long melts when he meets Abigail Williams.
  • Defiant to the End: When Bay Lupin is wounded and surrounded by the Oprichniki, he gives a howl and screams at them to face him like men, not Grimm.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": EMIYA Alter does not like being called Shirou Emiya. He later grudgingly reveals his original name because he's aware "EMIYA Alter" would sound strange in Remnant.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: The Servants are still very powerful by Remnant standards, but being turned into teenagers has weakened them slightly, and since they are now human, they can't go into spirit form and are vulnerable to being harmed. This means while they will still win most fights, they can't get complacent and actually have to work for their victories.
  • Ear Ache: Bay Lupin gets shot in the ear with a crossbow bolt.
  • Entertainingly Wrong:
    • Angra Mainyu tells Ozpin that his group was fighting a woman who controlled a pool of Black Mud that spawned monsters. Ozpin immediately thinks he is talking about Salem, when he was talking about Tiamat.
    • After examining Gudako and learning she has magical powers, and studying samples of the Black Mud in her, Ozpin and Doctor Oobleck conclude that Salem attacked her for being the first naturally occurring magic user in Remnant in thousands of years and was trying to convert her into a Grimm hybrid.
    • White Fang member Bay Lupin mistakes the Oprichniki for humanoid Grimm, and becomes terrified at the thought that the Grimm have evolved to mimic humans. Not a hard mistake to make, given the Oprichniki look like Grimm and also dissolve into nothingness when killed.
  • Evil Is Sexy: In-Universe. Angra Mainyu directly references this when he meets Salem.
  • Explaining Your Power to the Enemy: Lancelot eagerly explains how Knight of Owner works to Yang, Melanie, and Miltia.
  • Faking Amnesia: Angra Mainyu covers up his group's ignorance about the world by claiming amnesia.
  • For Want of a Nail: EMIYA Alter is present during Ruby and Glynda's battle with Roman Torchwick and Cinder Fall in the first episode. He shoots the villains' Bullhead down. This results in Cinder getting critically injured, though Roman was able to escape with her once it crashed. This forces Salem to order Hazel to retrieve Cinder so she can be healed, setting back their plans.
  • Fountain of Youth: The Servants have been turned into teenagers, which they are not happy about.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: The Servants all hate Angra Mainyu because he's an ass. The only reason why they tolerate him is because he's Gudako's boyfriend.
  • Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: Ruby is horrified when EMIYA Alter blows up Roman and Cinder's Bullhead because she assumed it killed them. Glynda has to smack her to snap her out of it.
  • A God Am I: Salem calls herself a goddess and reveals she plans to wipe out humanity until a select few are left who will worship her out of fear until generations pass and their descendants will know nothing but worshiping her and the Grimm.
  • Good Feels Good: Angra Mainyu remembers helping Bazett and Caren during Fate/hollow ataraxia. He admits helping them and helping Gudako makes him happy.
  • Good Is Not Nice: The four who traveled with Gudako to Remnant are anti-heroes and not very nice people, though still devoted to protecting humanity.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal!: Angra Mainyu's body is similar to a Grimm, so he doesn't have Aura. Fortunately, he can heal from pretty much anything, even getting torn to shreds by several Grimm.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Lancelot may have regained his sanity, but he's still a Berserker.
  • Hero of Another Story: Ritsuka is presumably leading the rest of Chaldea's Servants in fixing the Singularities.
  • How Is That Even Possible?: When Angra Mainyu sees that Remnant's moon is shattered, he asks, "... what the hell could even DO that?"
  • Human Hammer-Throw: Melanie tries to kick Lancelot, but he catches her ankle and swings her around several times before hurling her through a glass pillar.
  • Humanity Ensues: A combination of being exposed to Tiamat's Black Mud and Angra Mainyu trying to repair their bodies with his Reality Marble causes Gudako's Servants to become human. They still have their superhuman abilities, but they are not has powerful as they would normally be, they can't go into spiritual form, they actually have to eat and sleep, and they lost their immunity to non-magical attacks.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: Salem declares this, saying humans are full of corruption and discrimination. In contrast, the Grimm, despite being created to destroy, care about each other and form unified communities.
  • Hypocrite: Blake is against racists, but after mistaking Lancelot for being from Atlas, she automatically assumes he's a racist, which is a racist sentiment in itself.
  • I Call It "Vera": EMIYA Alter names his rifle "Kiritsugu" after his father.
  • I Hate Past Me: Just like the regular EMIYA, EMIYA Alter hates his past self Shirou Emiya. He's horrified when he becomes a teenager again. While his skin is still black, his eyes are still yellow, and his hair is still white, his face and body looks like Shirou's again.
  • Imagine Spot: EMIYA Alter imagines King Hassan wielding Crescent Rose. He finds the image hilarious.
  • Immunity Attrition: One unnamed White Fang member has armadillo-like armor, and his Semblance can make his skin turn to rock so it can withstand blades. One of the Oprichniki kills him by hammering away at him with an axe until he breaks.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: Lancelot goes to Junior's club and orders as much alcohol as he can to try to forget all the craziness of his new circumstances. Unfortunately for him, he finds he can't get drunk.
  • Insistent Terminology: When Blake calls Hassan a murderer, he says he's an Assassin.
  • I've Come Too Far: Right before Roman tries to kill Ruby by blowing up a Fire Dust crystal, he hesitates, asking himself how he went from a thief to a murderer. He then decides he's in too deep with Cinder's organization to back out now.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: When Hassan killed the racist, the man had just enough time to scream, "S-someone help, White Fa-"
  • Lame Pun Reaction: When Lancelot introduces himself, Yang jokes that he must use a spear because he Lance-A-Lot. He says, "That pun... physically hurt me."
  • Let's You and Him Fight: After rescuing a little Faunus girl by killing her attacker, Hassan tells her to go home, then follows at a distance to make sure she gets there safely. Blake Belladonna just sees a suspicious looking person following a child and evidence of a murder and attacks him. The misunderstanding is eventually cleared up.
  • The Lost Lenore: Lancelot misses his lover Guinevere. EMIYA Alter misses the Saber from his Grail War from back when he was Shirou.
  • Love at First Sight: Weiss Schnee is instantly smitten with Lancelot when she sees him.
  • Love Triangle: Weiss and Yang are both attracted to Lancelot.
  • Malicious Misnaming: In a flashback, Gudako mocked Ritsuka by calling him "Ritsuckass".
  • Man of Kryptonite: Angra Mainyu can easily defeat Grimm because they are an embodiment of negativity, so their very presence supercharges his powers. However, since he's also an embodiment of negativity, the Grimm are attracted to him like moths to a flame, which can get annoying.
  • Mistaken for Afterlife: Shortly before they arrived in Remnant, the Servants woke up in Angra Mainyu's Reality Marble. Hassan assumed they were in Purgatory until they find out the truth.
  • Mistaken for Subculture: Hassan has been mistaken for a member of the White Fang several times because of his mask.
  • Mistaken Identity: Angra Mainyu, Hassan, and the Oprichniki have been mistaken for Grimm at certain points.
  • Mistaken for Racist: Because Blake thinks Lancelot is from Atlas, she automatically thinks he's racist against Faunus just because Atlas is famous for that. She is thrown for a loop when he quickly shows he isn't a racist.
  • Mistaken Nationality:
    • Blake believes Lancelot is from Atlas because of his looks and because he's friendly with Weiss.
    • Taiyang thinks Sherlock Holmes is from Atlas because of his looks.
  • Mook Horror Show: Ivan the Terrible's Oprichniki soldiers slowly wipe out a White Fang squad one by one.
  • Morality Pet: Gudako is the only person Angra Mainyu cares about. He fights for the survival of humanity not because he cares about them, but because it is what Gudako would want.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: When Angra Mainyu says he already has a girlfriend, Salem at first says she's willing to share, but when he refuses Salem's offer to join her because of Gudako, Salem threatens to kill her. He retorts that if she tries it, he'll tear her apart.
  • My Greatest Failure:
    • Hassan of the Cursed Arm is haunted by the fact that in life, he abandoned his beloved family to join the Hashshashin. He's at least comforted because there's an alternate timeline version of him from the Camelot Singularity who was able to reunite with them, so there's at least one version of himself and his family who were able to be happy.
    • Lancelot is haunted by his affair with Guinevere that ended up helping to destroy Camelot and his king.
    • EMIYA Alter is haunted by his failure to stop the mad cultist Kiara Sessyoin and then being forced to kill her innocent, brainwashed victims in self defense.
    • Angra Mainyu regards his inability to completely heal Gudako from her injuries sustained from the Black Mud or wake her up from her coma as this, saying he should have been better.
  • Never Gets Drunk: Lancelot gets annoyed that no matter how much he drinks, he can't get drunk.
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: Angra Mainyu is considered one of the weakest Servants, but he's very powerful by Remnant standards.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: Salem claims she and Angra Mainyu are the same. Formerly innocent people who were screwed over and have a burning hatred of humanity and the gods.

  • Patrick Stewart Speech: Angra Mainyu tells Salem that while he hates humanity, if it could produce wonderful people like Gudako, it can't be all bad.
  • Powerful and Helpless: The Servants are all killing machines with abilities that dwarf many of the inhabitants of Remnant, and Angra Mainyu is able to repair Gudako's body, but none of them are able to wake her up from her coma and feel really helpless and guilty about that.
  • Psychic Nosebleed: Salem suffers a nosebleed after sensing Angra Mainyu's power for the first time.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: Ruby makes this expression when Weiss yells at her for accidentally blowing up her luggage. Shirou brings attention to it and seeing it makes Weiss relent.
  • Roof Hopping: Hassan jumps the rooftops to get around Vale. Blake does this when she chases him while thinking he's a criminal.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When Yang and Weiss meet and start fighting over Lancelot, he tries to ask Ruby and his team for help, but he turns and finds they bailed on him.
  • Shameful Strip: The racist who attacked the little Faunus girl accuses her of stealing and tries to force her to strip to prove she didn't. He sneers and says animals like her don't need clothes anyway. Fortunately, Hassan shows up just in time to stop him.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: Yang constantly teases Ruby about her crush on EMIYA Alter, or as they know him, Shirou. Ruby whines that he's not her boyfriend.
  • Small Steps Hero: Ruby declares that she understands that she can't save everyone, so she'll just save anyone she runs into and kill the Grimm one at a time, as every person saved and every Grimm killed will matter in the end.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Once Salem detects Angra Mainyu's presence, she becomes obsessed with him because she believes he's a being similar to her, and is determined to make him her King.
  • Stress Vomit: When Hassan rescues a little Faunus girl from a racist attacker by killing him and then eats his heart, the girl vomits from the shock of seeing a man die before her eyes and then that gruesome display.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Ruby Rose believes heroes don't kill people and is horrified when EMIYA Alter tries to kill Roman and Cinder by shooting down their Bullhead. Glynda lectures her that sometimes, killing can't avoided, then reminds her that Roman and Cinder tried to kill them.
  • Undying Loyalty: All of Gudako's Servants are completely devoted to her.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Angra Mainyu is able to walk around Beacon Academy in just a loincloth. Other than a few people who think he is scary because of his tattoos, nobody blinks an eye at him.
  • We Can Rule Together: Salem contacts Angra Mainyu and offers that he join her and become her King. While tempted, he refuses because Gudako wouldn't want that.
  • What the Hell Are You?: Ozpin twice asks Angra Mainyu what he is when he witnesses him use Verg Avesta, which makes him briefly turn into a shadowy wolfman that resembles a Beowulf.

    • White Fang member Bay Lupin manages to kill one of the Oprichniki before being knocked out. Impressed by his strength and skill, they spare his life and instead intend to convert him into one of them, saying he's worthy of being one of Ivan the Terrible's followers.
  • You Are Worth Hell: Hassan tells himself that he'll endure any Hell, including the one he's in right now, for Gudako. The others likely feel the same way.
  • You Can Talk?: As a side effect of his transformation, Lancelot has regained his sanity, allowing him to speak. The other Servants were shocked to hear him speak.
