RoleEdit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Shimousa Province: The Stage of Rivers of Blood and Mountains of CorpsesEdit

  • Great Spirit of Limbo

At some point, he met an alternative version of Amakusa, and both agreed to execute a plan to exterminate humanity.

He appears in the story as the Caster-class Caster Limbo (キャスター・リンボ, Kyasutā Rinbo?), being one of those responsible for the events in Shimousa, using black arts to corrupt several servants and turn them into beings that spread destruction across Shimousa. His silhouette is seen for the first time when the Seven Heroic Spirit Swordmasters appear to welcome the last member. He is the one who personally carves the Curse of Annihilation and transforms him into the remaining swordmaster.[2] He is the one who reactivates a certain puppet, which he dispatches to accompany the Chaldea faction in order to lure them into a trap.

At the climax of the story, on the arrival of the Onri Edo, he is seen as responsible for the strange phenomenon of the of sudden day/night shift, as the one who summons the monsters that appear at night. He decides to appear in the castle gardens, where he presents himself as Abe-no-Seimei before the group, to their disbelief. When Musashi attacks him, he decides to reactivate a version of the Curse of Annihilation in Danzou, causing the puppet to attack Chaldea against her will, as well as to release the horde of monsters he had saved for that moment. Seeing that it didn't work, Limbo decides to use the Curse of Annihilation on Musashi to transform her into a Heroic Spirit Swordmaster, but she is saved by the Chaldea Master. Surprised that his empowered sorcery was easily undone, he was injured by Musashi who took advantage of his confusion. Now angry to the point his face distorts, he decides to summon the Great Spirit of Limbo to defeat Chaldea, but to no avail. He is caught off guard by Fuuma who slashes him, presumably killing him.[3]

Later, his silhouette is seen on the upper floors of Edo castle. He survived and had hidden his presence to attack Musashi by surprise, but is stabbed by Empireo at the last moment, who states how disgusted he is with Limbo's existence in his sight before apparently disposing of him for good.[4]

At the end of these events, a surprisingly alive Limbo appears annoyed about the outcome of the entire setting. After calming himself, he claims that, even if he failed to invade Chaldea, he has finally succeeded in finding the Lost History (Missing Belt). He then mentions that the "Satan" he was following was just a false name, a ridiculous joke that he got onboard with a bit too far, before sincerely apologizing to ■■■■■■■■■.[1]

SIN: Land of Unified KnowledgeEdit

It was stated by Koyanskaya that Douman had found something interesting in the Indian Lostbelt, so it's unlikely he would budge for a while.[5]

Yuga Kshetra: The Black Final GodEdit

Atop of God Arjuna's Vimana orbiting around the Fantasy Tree Spiral, he appears as the responsible of the sudden shortening of Yuga cycle, tricking the Lostbelt King into reenacting the cycle on a weekly basis due to his own wish of seeing what lies beyond the termination of the Maha Yuga, the last Yuga that would end the universe and the trichiliocosm. [6]

For some reason, he refers to the Fantasy Tree as the Tree of the Empty Rhetoric. It is later revealed the body he used in the Lostbelt wasn't his true one but his Saint Graph engraved on a shikigami.[7]

AbilitiesEdit

He is shown using a kind of sorcery called Curse of Annihilation, with which he can turn servants, humans or puppets into genocidal beings who cannot avoid bringing death and destruction to all human life in sight.[2] Those under the effects of the curse become undead beings that cannot be shot down by convectional methods, even with attacks from servants. Only a weapon that can cut through karma has be shown to be effective against them. [8]

He has the ability to change day and night at will, as well as to summon a Crimson Moon, which can randomly transform humans into monsters.[3] He claims that both the Curse of Annihilation and this ability were granted by the mysterious being whom he jokingly calls "Satan."

He can make clones of himself engraving his Saint Graph in shikigamis, control them at will and disperse them whenever he pleases.[7]
