Assassin of Shinjuku (新宿のアサシン, Shinjuku no Asashin?) is an Assassin-class Servant able to be summoned by the Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.



Assassin's True Name is Yan Qing (燕青, En sei?). Yan Qing was an outlaw who joined the Grand Assembly of the 108 Stars of Destiny during the latter half of Water Margin, one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. He was a short and handsome man with prodigious skill in both the martial arts and music, who entered the Great Assembly with his lord, Lu Junyi.[1]

Of course, Yan Qing was a fictional character, but he is still known as a founding master of the Yan Qing school of martial arts, even outside of Water Margin. While the martial art’s origin story is itself a fiction, this famed outlaw’s renown as the founder of a martial art has boosted his importance.[1]



Through the machinations of Baal, Assassin has absorbed the abilities of the Phantom Doppelganger (ドッペルゲンガー?).




Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Shinjuku Phantom Spirit Incident: The Malignant Quarantined Demonic RealmEdit

Yang Qing was part of the Phantom Demon Alliance in the Shinjuku Singularity, fused with the Phantom Doppelganger. He was disguised as Hassan of the Cursed Arm during his initial encounter with Ritsuka Fujimaru, in order to create and seize an opportunity to kidnap them.[3]



Yan Qing's Class Skill is Presence Concealment (C). His Personal Skills are Ruffian (A), Chinese Boxing (EX(A+++)), Espionage (A), Skillfull Star (A+) and Doppelgänger (EX).[1][2]

Chinese Boxing (中国拳法, Chūgoku Kenpō?, Zhong Guo Quan Fa in Chinese) is a Chinese Martial Arts style utilized by Yan Qing.

Espionage (諜報, Chōhō?) is a skill which does not conceal the user’s presence, but rather makes the user's presence fail to register as hostile.[4]

Skillful Star (天巧星, Tenkōsei?) is a skill denoting Yan Qing as one of the 108 Stars of Destiny, who were reborn as heroes. Because of his past incarnation as a demonic overlord, he was born with a calamitous karmic burden. Yan Qing was the Skillful Star, who excelled at the exquisite.[1]

Doppelgänger is a skill connected to Yan Qing's fusion to the Phantom Doppelgänger, which allows him to assume the appearance of others as well as some of their abilities.[2][3]

Noble PhantasmEdit

Yan Qing's Noble Phantasm is Ambushed from Ten Sides - As If There Was No Shadow (十面埋伏じゅうめんまいふく無影の如くむえいのごとく, Jūmenmaifuku Muei no Gotoku?, Shi Mian Mai Fu - Wu Ying Zuo Wei in Chinese) which delivers strikes from duplicates generated by the unique footwork of the Yan Qing Style. While not reaching the realm of Magic, it is a series of visually imperceptible attacks to the average observer, and the user of the technique is said to not even cast shadows on the ground.[1]


Shimaudon is the character designer for Yan Qing.[1]
