Considering that there have been few who have been able to work around Counter Force and such and how much just regular aliens can mess up Earth before Earth brings out the big guns, it might not be the most optimal place to invade but not impossible.

Of course. Counter Force is for all intents and purposes very stupid. I'm not betting on it if invading eldritch horror has some planning skills or can simply crack the planet in half with casual swing. Like with GO's alien god.

In a way, yes, Dark Souls character are in general very underpowered compared to the Nasuverse, but that ignores that there's a running theme, perharps the running theme, among Souls games of ruin and decay: everywhere you go is in ruins, all the great gods and noble heroes broken shadows of their former selves, and you're not slaying so much as mercy killing everything.

Take the aforementioned Artorias, for instance: by the time you fight him in the DLC he's got one mangled, broken arm, is in a clearly malnourished state, has been corrupted and gone completely mad, lacks his shield and his sword us not as powerful as it once was, and in general has seen far better days.

And yet he's still able to flip around in full armor, jump out several feet in the air and overrall behave not unlike Guts, if Guts had severe gigantism, that is:

And even in his prime, the man was far from being at the top of the Pecking Order.

There's a reason most people deny Dark Souls the Power Fantasy classification, beyond the now memetic difficulty: in it, you're nothing, you're the janitor, cleaning up the mess forces far beyond you have left behind, trying desperately in vain to stop entropy from consuming everything.

So there's an argument to be made that Dark Souls characters are about mid-tier.

In a world ravaged by waifus, our only hope lies with unreasonably buff men in loincloths.

Isn't Nasuverse's very Earth an eldritch horror that treats humanity like a particularly irksome flea infestation?

As for Bloodborne's Great Ones, the few that are truly approaching the name either aren't fought at all because they've transcended flesh (Oedon) or require incredibly specific circumstances to do so and may not even belong to the race(Moon Presence). Most of them are just... aliens. Aliens of great power and dazzling designs, but overall very physical beings that humans had cavorted with and hunted down at varying intervals.

Though if there's one thing Nasuverse beats out Soulsborneverses at, it's probably speed.

Technically they aren't physical since they live inside a dream in an entirely different plane of existence.

And you can only kill them in said dream.

There's some interesting stuff in the Heaven's Feel 2 BD booklet Q&A:

  • If Sakura was adopted by the Edelfelts, under Luvia's tutelage (being very similar to Rin), her talents would develop and she'd be a cool dark first class mage.
  • Shinji would just be in total denial about Archer's identity if he ever found out. Even if Rin hypothetically explained it all, he'd just dismiss it.
  • If Rin was the one given away for adoption, Sakura would've been sent to the Clock Tower to receive tutelage because her Imaginary Numbers Element makes it so Tokiomi is unable to teach her properly.
  • Rin going dark is just CG TO-SAKA.

Trailer for the 3rd HF movie, via Aniplex's Youtube channel.

The movie's version of Light and Darkness better blow my mind.

I've been trying to find a translation of Fate Extella Material book, but no luck so far. Did someone translate it?

There probably won’t be an ‘official’ fan translation of Extella Material because you can get it in English by buying a physical copy of the Noble Phantasm edition so most people won’t bother except to point out the mistranslations or points of contention

I do own it, so if you do have some questions, I can answer if you want. I’d have to remember what the incorrect stuff are but it’s relatively few
