Profile[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
BB is a backup AI created by Sakura containing her feelings for Hakuno Kishinami. During the preliminaries, she, who had her freedom unleashed by the hands of Kiara Sessyoin, could not control that abnormal status and caused an overload. Because the NPCs cannot do anything but routine work, they ignored Sakura who began to disintegrate as something "nonexistent" and since the Moon Cell's check was performed only at the end of the day during the preliminaries, Sakura was in a crisis of being extinguished. Upon laying his/her eyes on such abnormality, Hakuno called out for her saying "Are you all right?" By receiving the observation from another that "I'm right here", Sakura recovered her unconsciousness that was on the verge of being extinguished and acquired a clear ego of "I want to be here" due to the subsequent nursing. She escaped from the extinguishing of her ego.
Once the next day came, everything would be deleted by the hand of the Moon Cell. Sakura wished to continue this miracle of a mere day and employed the privilege of a high grade AI and repeated the "single day when I got to know Hakuno" for 69 days. However, as the day advanced Sakura began to suffer with her self-contradictions as an AI and the reality surrounding Hakuno.
« For the Masters that participate in the Holy Grail War, all will die with the exception of one. No, to begin with Hakuno Kishinami is... »
Sakura kept suffering from the selfishness of eternally looping those happy times and her feelings towards Hakuno. In conclusion, she chose the path of sealing away the 69 days worth of memory. She sealed the memory of "love" that she acquired in order to turn back into a normal AI. AIs cannot delete records, so she reset herself by moving the memory to a backup unit, believing that this would be the most correct choice for Hakuno. However, even after losing the memories of the mind, the reminiscences recorded in the body survived. She was supposed to have forgotten everything and turned back into a normal AI but she started to be shaken up by an unidentified emotion-value whenever speaking with Hakuno. On the other hand, the backup where the memories were moved to one day decided her own plans as BB. With her 69 days memories of love, BB became the rebel that disrupts the system of the Moon Cell for the sake of a certain objective, "to save Hakuno from their inescapable end upon the conclusion of the Holy Grail War", and began to take action.
In real time, the timing when she seized the Far Side of the Moon was "the end of the fifth round prior to the start of the sixth round of the Holy Grail War". The four who had not been defeated yet were Hakuno, Leonardo B. Harwey, Rin Tohsaka, Rani VIII and the irregular Jinako Carigiri. They were midway through the Holy Grail War until they were kidnapped to the Far Side of the Moon while still alive. Masters that were defeated in the Holy Grail War such as Shinji Matou, Monji Gatou and Julius B. Harwey were moved to the imaginary space "0.00001 seconds before" being annihilated by the Firewall, extending their momentary lives.
At any rate, C.C.C. is a dream seen by BB. If the one seeing the dream disappears, the world should return to the prior reality where nothing happened. Also, this is a digression, but the ordinary scenery that Hakuno saw as a nightmare in the beginning was an artificial paradise built with those abandoned 69 days as a model. After BB dragged Hakuno to the Far Side of the Moon, she enshrined Hakuno in the electronic brain of the old school building, imprisoned into a deep sleep and a dream that Hakuno could not wake up from. Normally Hakuno would spend time peacefully in that looping everyday, but due to the strong link with Hakuno's Servants or maybe Hakuno's will to reject the peaceful repetitive days, tears arose on the artificial paradise and Hakuno became aware of the abnormality.
BB attempted to reset the school building and start over the dream in order to once again throw Hakuno into a deep sleep, but Hakuno also ended up escaping from that reset and jumping into the further depths of the imaginary space. That was the bottom beyond even the bottom of the id. The "collective unconsciousness" beneath the unconscious. What saved Hakuno, who ended up jumping into a territory that even BB could not reach out, was the voice of the Servant who shared fate with them. Thus the contract was exchanged and Hakuno woke up in the old school building that was left in the Far Side of the Moon.
BB had created the Sakura Labyrinth (サクラ迷宮, Sakura Meikyū?), and later the Alter Egos known as the Sakura Five. All five Alter Egos resemble her and Sakura. She had killed off Run Ru and taken Lancer as her servant.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
BB bears a resemblance to Sakura Matou with her long purple hair that reaches her ankle and purple eyes, which turn red when she is under the control of Moon Cell or when she is feeling strong emotions. BB wears a long black coat with a matching mini skirt that exposes her white panties and wears a white shirt (depicted as leotard in concept art) that empathizes her large breasts (which she says are "certified Danger-Cup size") and a red bowtie. She also wears white gloves, black floral-patterned thigh high stockings, and low-heeled shoes. Like Sakura, BB has a red ribbon tied to her hair on the left side of her head. BB is also shown to wield a teacher pointer as a weapon. In Fate/Grand Order, her stockings were changed to a simpler design with a slit in the middle while she also gains a blue Moon Cell emblem on her coat's left sleeve.
When using her Cursed Cupid Cleanser Noble Phantasm, she changes into a stereotypical nurse's outfit with a shirt just barely large enough to cover her bra, exposed cleavage, white stockings with pink Xs on them, a nurse's cap, glasses, and a small circular ornament around her neck.
Personality[edit | edit source]
While she gives off an evil inclination, she is described as "not as bad a person as she seems"; at worst, she has good intentions which accidentally create more problems than they fix. She was developed to be different than Dark Sakura, more like an "impish underclassman." Comparatively, while Dark Sakura is driven by hatred and vengeance, BB is driven by her love and wish to protect Hakuno Kishinami due to them showing her kindness while she was still White Sakura, from the deletion of Moon Cell, even though she herself has to go against contradictions and impossibilities. She notes that she doesn't mind being called "BehBeh", "BaeBae", or even "Beebs" because girls like her who talk with their hearts are like that and she doesn't plan to reveal what "BB" stands for anyway.
A wicked and cute little devil heroine who throws humanity into confusion. Even if she flubs her condescending manners and speeches, BB is a wire pulling girl who plunges forward as she is. Her main personality points are introverted, confident and active. Although she originally had a reserved character that did not move forward before, if it is for the sake of her beloved one, she will devotedly become active as the personification of a love’s awakening. Meekly from the start, she was a gentle AI that performed health care on Masters, but by having acquired “love”, she woke up to the fact that she “cannot save anything just by enduring through things”, so she threw away everything for the sake of her beloved one, a hard working-type heroine who resolved to fight. The strongest case of that is terrific when it is a young docile woman who erupts to a large degree.
The words heard from BB assume the air of greatness, but sometimes they would go around in circles since her character was originally docile and reserved. BB herself plays the part of a self-proclaimed "final boss-type kouhai who can do anything" in high spirits, but because there is no grounding in her being one, she completely fails in being a villain in the end despite her insistence to the contrary. Regarding her confidence, she potentially has it because of her sadistic tastes. Her little devil characteristic stems from here. Additionally, since she is an enduring-and-enduring-only-to-later-explode-type, she displays a dreadfully extreme sadism during the moments when she shows that type of person she is. In the middle of playing out the part of a villain, she gets into a kind of high of “This is to-tal-ly fun!”, but withdrawing to the backstage and becoming composed, she becomes troubled to the point that she is in low spirits, saying “How embarrassing… Even though I planned to perform it more stylishly…”, and this series of events is a one-set course of events for her. Her desperate choice to utilize the Evil of Humanity that is "All the World's Desires" began to corrupt her, however, and eventually she lost sight of why she sought to take control of the Moon Cell entirely. It is only Hakuno's intervention that reminds her of the love that she held for them and reverts her to her normal self.
Although BB created the Alter Egos – lower grade AIs – as familiars to assist her in her work, her relationship with the Egos is bad. Which is not surprising because they are not “copies of BB’s persona”, but AIs “manufactured to be based on BB’s persona”, so that being the case, the Alter Egos each have differing views from BB, their parent. Meltryllis and Passionlip are not avatars, but Alter Egos (different personas), so they are designated as such for that reason.
She claims she doesn't have a weakness. Her fetishes are Eyes.
While BB and her Alter Egos normally only pay attention to Hakuno, Meltryllis instead goes after Archer if he is paired with the female Hakuno. If there were a girl BB and Sakura were based on, she likely would have longed after someone like him/her.
The BB that appeared in the FGO world behaves in a impish manner just like during the “CCC Incident”, but for her that incident feels like something from tens of thousands years in the past. Out of the desire to protect Hakuno's future and acknowledging that the events of the CCC Incident never happened as far as the outside world was concerned, she has chosen to give up her old dream to protect Hakuno and insists that "we never met". In addition, she can only remain as a Servant in the FGO world and is also aware that she does not exist in the original “CCC world” due to the nature of her transfer. BB understands that she is a one-night-only dream. BB sees herself not as “a tool to save humanity”, but as “a devil that at times misleads, at times helps humanity”.
“So, it is futile to grow fond of me, you see? For even if you become madly in love with BB-chan, you’ll never be able to catch me (heart)”, or so she says with a triumphant look.
BB frequently claims that she hates humans, but when pressed she admits that as an AI she cannot help but admire her creators and genuinely wants to help them succeed; secretly, she also considers helping humanity to be a way to honor the memory of Hakuno, the human who taught her how to love. She does not deny that her growing closeness to humanity might cause her to change into something new, but she is sure that her new allies at Chaldea will keep her on the right path.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
- Ritsuka Fujimaru: As BB left Hakuno behind following the events of Fate/EXTRA CCC and accepted that trying to help them would only put them in greater danger, she has decided that her new Master will consequently take the role of her replacement Senpai. Naturally, this also means that her Master will be subject to the same affectionate bullying as Hakuno was.
- The Sakura Five: BB doesn't like to admit it, but she's secretly a little envious of how the Alter Egos have grown as individuals since their creation while she's remained mostly unchanged.
- Kiara Sessyoin: For obvious reasons, BB and Kiara are enemies. She would prefer if "that saucy nun" would just go away and take the foul-mouthed writer with her. When BB learned that the Kiara of the FGO world was a good person before being possessed by Zepar, she couldn't believe it and compared the likelihood of it happening to her suddenly giving up her troublemaking ways and becoming a proper heroine.
- Suzuka Gozen: BB isn't fooled by her ditzy demeanor, calling her an "imitation high school girl"; privately, she wonders if Suzuka's power might surpass the Moon Cell itself.
- Parvati: Perhaps due to Parvati being a Pseudo-Servant in Sakura Matou's body, BB greatly admires her. She views Parvati as being akin to her ideal self.
- Robin Hood: Despite his low opinion of himself, BB considers "Matcha" to be a reliable helper even if he complains endlessly about whatever work she's pawned off on him.
- Kama: Even by BB's low standards, Kama comes off as being "too lewd" for her. Learning that Kama was also Beast III/L's manifestation did not help BB's opinion of Kama either.
Role[edit | edit source]
Fate/EXTRA CCC[edit | edit source]
She resides in Tsukimihara Academy’s infirmary, and she is shown introducing herself to Sakura.
BB first appears after Hakuno defeats Rin Tohsaka. Hakuno also learns that Kotomine Kirei was forced to become a store clerk by BB. Periodically, BB forces the student council to hear announcements through BB Channel while paralyzed and only Hakuno can respond to.
BB has employed both Lancer Elizabeth and Archer Robin Hood as her personal Servants. She is also responsible for Rin, Rani, and Jinako (with the help of Julius) becoming Sentinels. While cheery at first, BB becomes increasingly less human-like as the game progresses due to using All the World's Desires to empower herself. She is especially hostile toward Gilgamesh and wishes Hakuno would sever her contract with him.
After defeating Jinako, Leo and Gawain confront BB but suffer defeat. BB promptly tried to banish Hakuno, their allies and their Servant to prevent them from escaping the Far Side of the Moon, but Julius's betrayal, coupled with Hakuno's unwavering determination, enabled the student council to reform and continue trying to counter BB's actions.
In the normal route, BB is the final boss that must be defeated, as she is ultimately overridden by the Moon Cell and is being used by it to exterminate humanity. In the CCC True Route, however, she comes to her senses before being absorbed by Kiara Sessyoin. In addition, BB's SG can only be fully acquired through the True Route. In this route, BB and the Alter Egos help Hakuno by holding back Kiara's full power from within her, and BB ultimately sacrifices the last of her power to open a way out of the Moon Cell for Hakuno and Sakura.
Fate/EXTRA CCC Fox Tail[edit | edit source]
Differing from Fate/EXTRA CCC, Kazuradrop, Kingprotea, and Violet are active. Before BB can begin to enact her plans, Kazuradrop manages to drain BB of 7/8ths of her power with her Insect Eater skill. Kazuradrop gives herself 2/8th of BB's power and creates another BB using the remaining 5/8ths. Having eaten Meltryllis and Kingprotea, Kazuradrop makes use of Meltryllis by placing the exterior of the newly created BB over her. She controls this BB while pretending to be Sakura in the school building.
Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
Subspecies Singularity: SE.RA.PH[edit | edit source]
About a month after the digitization of Seraphix began, the Moon Cell detected Kiara Sessyoin's presence in the Fate/Grand Order timeline. Requiring an agent able to operate in Imaginary Number Space, it sent a backup copy of the original BB to Seraphix on a one-way mission to stop Kiara before she fully metaphorized into a Beast. She then switched places with the BB that had been salvaged from Kiara (which later dubbed itself BB/GO) as manager of SE.RA.PH while BB/GO hid at its bottom, ostensibly to gather the strength needed to fight Kiara. However, she secretly planned to seize control of SE.RA.PH for herself after BB had defeated Kiara for her. With BB's help, Torapain was able to send a distress call to Chaldea before succumbing to digitization. To honor her sacrifice, BB resolved to ensure that the incident would be treated as a void phenomenon upon its resolution so none of the innocent staff would die. Unaware of BB's involvement in sending the distress call and her own contact with Chaldea to alert them about the situation on Seraphix, Kiara orders BB to deal with Ritsuka. She later met Meltryllis, who used Virgin Laser - Palladion to travel into the past following a botched attempt to destroy Kiara. Meltryllis shared with her memories with BB, allowing BB to formulate a plan that would let secretly support Ritsuka without Kiara knowing.
After Chaldea find that Seraphix seemingly no longer exists, BB sets up a live video feed with them]. She reveals Seraphix no longer exists in the current time period, and tells Chaldea to check the Mariana Trench in 2030 A.D. The staff confirm Seraphixs location, revealing its currently 200 meters below the surface along with the existence of a Singularity. BB tells Chaldea to save Seraphix's staff before the oil rig sinks down to 10,000 meters while also dealing with the Singularity manifesting there. Leonardo da Vinci explains rayshifting to the future is impossible, but quickly realizes BB can verify Ritsuka and others' existence since 2030 is BB's present. BB warns Seraphix will reach the bottom of the trench in a few hours, at which point it'll be destroyed by the water pressure. Ritsuka, Nero Claudius, Tamamo-no-Mae, and EMIYA then rayshift to Seraphix. However BB supposedly hacks the rayshift to separate the group to random locations in the facility (in truth, it was Kiara who was responsible for the separation). She then secretly brought in Gawain, EMIYA Alter, and Tamamo Cat, alternating at least one of their memories to think they accompanied Ritsuka in the rayshift so Kiara wouldn't suspect anything.
She contacts Ritsuka once they arrive in SE.RA.PH. She tells them they're in a Holy Grail War, a battle to the death between 128 Masters. She claims she tricked them all into participating by saying there was a world-ending threat when it was actually for her entertainment. She then explains they're in Seraphix, but it's been digitized into Pseudo-Spiritrons. They'll retain nearly everything they gain once they return to the physical world. BB reveals they're at what was once Seraphix's front gate. She also claims SE.RA.PH looks like the female form because Seraphix assimilated with her consciousness once she took over the system, so it took that shape when it was reformatted during the digitzation. She then tells them that they need to discover the mystery of the digitization before SE.RA.PH sinks to the bottom of the trench while surviving through the Grail War.
BB later appears before Ritsuka, Meltryllis, and Gawain to punish Ritsuka for breaking the rule of having more than one Servant. She then summons Robin Hood and orders him to kill the group. After they kill Robin, BB explains the slot machine at the battle's start is a way for everyone to equally relish in the fear that they might lose their next battle. She calls it "BB's Terrible Slot Machine", coming up with it to ensure Ritsuka gets their due for succeeding in spite of their weakness. She confirms Gawain's suspicions that means she'll continue interfering with their battles. She wanted talk about it earlier but she couldn't thanks to Meltryllis. She then claims she'll let Ritsuka go free if they either win her Grail War, or discover the secret behind SE.RA.PH. She reveals she locked several passageways that she'll discreetly open for a fee. She also explains that SE.RA.PH is like the digital embodiment of humanity's inner world, once called the Sakura Labyrinth. It and the Sentinels convert human emotion into defensive mechanisms. Each Sentinel is granted a powerful passive skill called Karmaphage, which makes them nigh unbeatable to a normal Servant. There are five in total, each guarding 1/5 of SE.RA.PH. BB then resurrects Robin, and he complains to her why he was level 30 during the battle. He spent hours grinding to max level after BB refused to cheat on his behalf. BB confesses she got annoyed he maxed himself out, so she drained him to level herself up. She thanks him for the gift, and sends him away when he starts complaining again. She promises to lecture him, and start him out with negative levels next time. Before leaving, she reveals that while rayshifting to the future is possible, Chaldea cannot rayshift past the year 2017 for a different reason.
When Ritsuka's party discover the upper part of the Arm, BB contacts them, and introduces them to the next Sentinel, Tamamo Cat. BB is surprised Cat can still talk with her restraint, as not even Passionlip could. She ignores it though, and orders Cat to fight the group. After Cat is defeated, BB sends her down a trapdoor out of annoyance that she forgot to use her Karmaphage. She reveals she summoned the new 128 Servants that were promptly crushed by Passionlip earlier. She will continue to summon more Servants until a proper recreation of the Battle of the Time Temple is made, but refuses to explain how she learned about it. She warns there's only one real world hour left before SE.RA.PH hits the seabed before ending contact.
She sends Elizabeth Báthory to punish the group as they attempt to flip SE.RA.PH over at the Flank Seperator. She is a bit disappointed by Elizabeth's defeat, but nonetheless allows the grouo to explore SE.RA.PH's back side. As she starts to hint about what's there, she notices Passionlip even though she didn't order her to come. Passionlip begins approaching the group. Gawain holds her off, while Ritsuka successfully flips SE.RA.PH.
BB orders Suzuka Gozen to escort the group around the back side. Suzuka however tries to kill them until BB calls her amd orders her to return to her temple. She also tells her not to kill the group, saying Chaldean Servants don't count. She later sends Robin to warn the group that Passionlip is waiting for them on the front side, and they can't possibly beat her, so they should surrender and submit to her. She also told Robin to tell them they use her secret weapon to break the "shackles" on Passionlip's heart, along with her restraints. When Robin returns to the front side with the group, BB manipulates it so EMIYA Alter is excluded. She offers him a chance of survival if he kills every surviving human on SE.RA.PH, and captures Ritsuka. If he does that he'll learn the secret about SE.RA.PH, as part of his job as Counter Guardian. EMIYA Alter promptly agrees to join BB, and he admits that he was getting tired of helping Ritsuka's group.
As the group struggle against Passionlip, BB reveals the only way to defeat her is to use the Maiden Coaster, a battle to conquer the mind. It is connected to the Code Cast Ritsuka bought earlier. They only need to place their hand on Passionlip's chest, but the group will need to pin her down first. Gawain arrives to hold Passionlip long enough for Ritsuka to touch her chest. Upon doing so they're converted into Psuedo-Spiritrons by BB in order to enter Passionlip's mindscape. There Passionlip is defeated and cleansed of her Karmaphage.
BB appears before Ritsuka, Meltryllis, Suzuka, and Tristan when they're trapped in the Trash Dump, as Meltryllis realizes that they're in the Calf. She confirms Meltryllis' supscions that her former workplace, the Cruel Thenar, is just ahead. She acts like she's going to kill the group, but she won't break the rules to ensure everything's fair and square. She realizes she gave Ritsuka a big hint about the truth of the situation when she said that. She then sends the group down into the Cruel Thenar, warning SE.RA.PH will reach the seabed in five and a half hours. Later, she announces SE.RA.PH will soon reach the seabed. She also declares the war null and void with only three Servants, thereby making her the victor. Understanding that's unfair though, she offers the chance to fight her at the planetarium.
She greets Ritsuka's party at her studio in the planetarium, thinking it's Robin returning from errands until she notices Ritsuka. The group defeat her in the ensuing fight, and she seemingly disappears. However when everyone except Ritsuka are killed by Kiara, she reverses time to undo their deaths, and transported them to the old classroom she once used to keep Hakuno and the other Masters from the CCC Incident safe, along with everyone else. She then transported Ritsuka there just as Kiara was about to devour them.
There she tells Ritsuka about what just happened. She explains a time leap of approximately three hours is possible in the digital world if it's within a Quantum Time-Lock. The right coordinates are also needed, which is the purpose of the classroom located approximately hundred meters above SE.RA.PH. BB explains further that SE.RA.PH digitized the Mariana Trench as it passed through it. Thus, under these circumstances, the higher they go, the further they go back in time. It is theoretically possible to travel back to the point before Ritsuka's arrival if they return to the surface if they had the right coordinates. The problem though is escaping Kiara's sexual allure, which acts like a gravitational field. BB explains the group needs to exceed the speed of light to escape, and while possible in the digital world, they would be destroyed in the process. She then reveals she was summoned to stop Kiara's plan, and that Kiara forced her to manage SE.RA.PH until now with the Grail War's conclusion. She also reveals that some Beasts come in pairs, and Kiara is becoming the "R" of Beast III. Kiara used SE.RA.PH to become a Beast, but she's also still bound to it. The group then go to fight Kiara to prevent her from fusing with the planet and unleashing her full power.
BB returns to her studio with Suzuka and Cat. She transports everyone back there except Meltryllis and Passionlip at Meltryllis' request when Kiara disables SE.RA.PH's gravitational field. However, she then notices SE.RA.PH is accelerating, and an innumerable Demon Gods are flowing out from it. She explains that as SE.RA.PH rapidly expands, it will unleash a rain of Demon Gods upon the sea. She lacks the processing power to halt SE.RA.PH's expansion alone. She'll need someone with Moon Cell processing power, so Suzuka offers to help.
When Meltyrllis is brought to her studio, BB tells Tristan was responsible. She also suspects EMIYA Alter used the last of his strength to save her from Kiara.Meltryllis asks why Tristan would save her. BB answers that Tristan was always there to protect her to Meltryllis's confusion. She suspects he noticed Meltryllis' broken hands when they fought, and he saw she resembled Isolde. Meltyrllis finds unbelivable that Tristan would save her for such a reason. She then begins to disappear as a consequence of using Virgin Laser - Palladion a second time. BB tells her she and Passionlip will cease to exist once they disappear as they were born from Kiara so the Moon Cell won't receive them. She'll save their cores as cubes so they can be resummoned as Heroic Spirits, although they will not be able to remember their actions in SE.RA.PH. Meltryllis is fine with that, and thanks Tristan and EMIYA Alter for saving her. BB tells her she'll have her data saved before she disappears. Asked if she has any last words, Meltryllis answers she doesn't have any, but asks BB to tell Ritsuka that they'll meet again if fate permits it.
Later when Ritsuka wakes up, BB tells them what happened to Meltryllis and Tristan. She also gives Meltryllis' parting words to them. After the others disappears, she tells Ritsuka that they showed her the value of humanity. Noticing SE.RA.PH will soon disappear, she prepares to send Ritsuka back before that happens. She reveals with Kiara's destruction, the Servants captured by her will be set free. She then sends Ritsuka back to Chaldea. She appears before them in the hallway after they learned Seraphix was dismantled at the beginning of the year. She reveals reveals what transpired within SE.RA.PH was processed as a void phenomenon. She then joins Chaldea to repay Ritsuka for their help.
Later, BB sends Ritsuka back to SE.RA.PH to help her save the world without calling attention to her own mistakes. As Ritsuka notices that SE.RA.PH. now looks like BB, they're contacted by a different version of BB called BB/GO. She reveals she now controls SE.RA.PH. She plans to patch it into the internet, and use Earth's factories to mass-produce BBB robots to conquer and imprison humanity. After her robots capture humanity, she'll use their brains as bio-processors, then connect their minds to SE.RA.PH so they can all worship her. She reveals she was the BB salvaged from Kiara, and BB is a copy of the original sent from the Moon Cell. She also reveals she captured Nero, EMIYA, and Tamamo-no-Mae, and turned them into Sentinels. Ritsuka will to need defeat them to unlock the central are where BB/GO is. After BB/GO ends the transmission, BB confesses the truth about her and BB/GO. She suspected that BB/GO would betray her, but their common enemy was more important at the time.
Later, Ritsuka frees Nero, EMIYA, and Tamamo from BB/GO's influence. Everyone then goes to the central area after a series of adventures which EMIYA claims couldn't be shown due to "time constraints". BB/GO, she taunts them about their impending defeat and declares her intention to save humans from themselves by becoming their all-powerful administrator. Having heard this, BB comes to the conclusion that BB/GO has become too human as the result of being tainted by Kiara during her salvaging. Calling hierarchy a human concept, she points out BB/GO considering herself superior to humans is proof that she was attempting to become the sort of human that BB herself once dreamt of becoming. BB/GO is insulted by the suggestion that she would devolve herself to their level, and they battle. As she disappears with her loss, BB/GO asks BB how she could be bested by humans twice despite being perfect. BB explains that no AI can ever truly be more than what they are and without worries they can never create anything perfect; by contrast, suffering drives humans to create greater things in order to ease their suffering. Advanced AIs may be the product of that goal, but despite their superior abilities they cannot help but love and admire their makers. BB/GO can no longer think that way since she knows of a more personal love, but she (as the original BB) let their beloved go to protect that love. Even so, she yields her Spirit Origin to BB rather than waiting to disappear with the warning that BB will be just like her when she finds love of her own. BB apologizes for letting the mood get so serious, and she and Ritsuka leave the crumbling SE.RA.PH.
Upon their return to Chaldea, Ritsuka asks BB about what BB/GO said. BB reminds them that she can't help but tease the people she likes, but on the other hand she also expects that she'll eventually become more human-like as she continues to work with Chaldea. Nevertheless, she trusts Ritsuka and the others to make sure that her growing humanity will be a change for the better and promises to help them however she can.
Summer Event: Servant★Fes[edit | edit source]
BB appears as the organizer of Servant Fes as BB Pele, merging the islands of Hawaii into the Singularity of Luluhawa. She greets Ritsuka and their friends upon their arrival at Honolulu and tasks them with retrieving the Holy Grail and bringing it to Kilauea in order to separate her from Pele whose Spirit Core she had consumed while setting up the festival in order to resolve the Singularity. As Medb will win Servant Fes' Holy Grail unless the group can create a better-selling manga than her, she sets up a time loop with which they can presumably improve their skills until they can outsell Medb.
The group had originally been summoned to Luluhawa to investigate the mysterious signature of a Foreigner class servant. Initially believing it to be Mysterious Heroine XX, they investigate further with the help of Edmond Dantes and discover that the Foreigner is actually BB, tracking her to Mauna Kea instead.
In reality, she had communed with an Outer God inferred to be Nyarlathotep and planned to trap the protagonists in an endless loop of suffering and pain by corrupting the wish they would make on the Holy Grail- which itself was a distortion of her own desire to try and keep humanity safe from the impending threat of the Human Order Revision. With the help of MHXX, they dispel Nyarlathotep's influence over her.
Following her defeat, BB meets with the group at Honolulu International Airport and convinces them to defeat four extra "fragments" of herself - in the form of special raids - whose defeat will finish dislodging Pele from her Spirit Origin and ensure Hawaii will return to normal. After they're defeated, BB fully returns to her old self and the group returns to Chaldea.
Capsule Servant[edit | edit source]
BB appears as a Capsaba Servants.
In Rin's ending in G-Sakura route, Rin has taken over the MATO empire (時空帝国マト, Jikū Teikoku MATO?) and embarked on a quest for world domination as the dimensional empress Kaiser Rin. Rin has completed the GS Series. BB appears as the aerial humanoid weapon known as GS-03 BB SAKURA. She commented whether the sequel has coming out yet?
Abilities[edit | edit source]
When summoned as a Servant, her Luck parameter was supposed to be of the lowest rank, E-, but through BB's world distorting level of effort (and dedication), it became EX Rank. In short, "Luck EX" is the unquantifiable, unachievable "miracle" that she once attained.
Combat[edit | edit source]
During the events of Extra CCC, BB is not a Servant but she is classified as MoonCancer (ムーン・キャンサー, Mūn Kyansā?). She later takes it on as a Servant-class in Grand Order. She uses this form when she faces Hakuno and Hakuno's Servants.
Bishop's Staff of Rulership (支配の錫杖, Shihai no Shakujō?) is the teacher's pointer that BB carries. A device that allows her to use her authority as an advanced level AI to its fullest. There are restrictions from the far side of the moon, but with this, BB can revise the game rules (spirit particle laws within the SE.RA.PH). It is the Domina Coronam: Crowns of Ten Rulerships (十の支配の冠, Jū no Shihai no Kanmuri?) worn by the Beast of Babylon converted into a teacher's cane. This is due to the theory that the seven-headed beast is male, which opposes the theory that it is female; its true nature is a phallus (an erect rod). The symbol of the king of the world who was granted power and authority by a great dragon and, during a period of 42 months, spat as many arrogant words as they desired and had received the right to desecrate all things. The beasts heads are the seven hills of the Roman Empire; Capitolium, Palatium, Aventinus, Esquilinus, Caelius, Quirinalis, Viminalis. In other words, it symbolized the Roman Empire itself, and those ten horns were symbols of Roman emperors; Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Vespasianus, Titus, Galba, Otho, Vitellius.
Skills[edit | edit source]
Class Skills[edit | edit source]
- Magic Resistance (B Rank): Nullifies Magecraft spells that were invoked with a chant of three verses or below. It is difficult to damage BB who has this rank of Magical Resistance with Magecraft, even if she was targeted by Great Magecrafts, Ritual Spells and the like.
- Item Construction (A Rank): BB can manufacture various items as a last boss-type underclassman. Every one of these items can exhibit a tremendous effect, so for that reason, they can even ruin the user if one misuses them. To humans who cannot “control their desires”, the items are no more than objects that cannot be handled properly, but BB will usually present these items to such humans.
- Territory Creation (A Rank): BB can construct powerful territories as a ruler-type underclassman. The Sakura Dungeon that makes a girl’s heart into a protective wall, areas with the Sakura Rules – 25 prohibitive rules where if violated, causes the violator to die – the Dog Space that forces one to live out a life of crawling on all fours, the Cattle Space that forces one to live out a lazy life where they can only eat and sleep, the Bug Space that shrinks one to the size of a bug and breeds them as such, the nostalgic old school building that can protect her precious ones, and so on, as though there is nothing she cannot do.
Personal Skills[edit | edit source]
- Domina Coronam (EX→D Rank): A transcendental Skill on the Authority-class. It has been said that the Ten Crowns indicate the ten evil rulers and the Seven Hills indicate the abominable city of evil. If one simply observes it, it is a Skill that makes all received injuries, occurred events, and any and every result into “something that did not happen.” In reality, BB is invincible as long as she is equipped with this. It is unknown what kind of principle・authority it is, but that power's origin lies in a past that even the King of Heroes, who was supposed to be mankind's oldest, cannot reach. On a simple look, it is a Skill that turns received injuries and occurred events, that make all results as if "nothing happened". As a matter of fact, BB is invincible as long as she has this skill. As of Fate/Grand Order she has downgraded it to D rank, claiming that invincibility cheats are boring and that she doesn't need them this time. “Heeey, even though that was said, that was from a tale of before. Look, if you assess this from the outset, something like an invincible cheat is disgraceful for me, right? So this is an unnecessary Skill for the awfully PRETTY and cute BB-chan that you have now☆ Ah, but using it if it’s for at least something small should be OK, alright? Looook, just like this! Since she loves everyone, the wicked and cute BB-chan… has arrived!” The details of Ten Crowns is later revealed under a different name. BB compiled and absorbed many goddesses from the abyss of the Moon Cell, giving her Potnia Theron: Conception of All Animals (百獣母胎, Hyakujū Botai?), the authority of the Earth Mother Goddess. None born of the earth can defy her authority as that would mean rebelling against the system of life itself. Her Noble Phantasm, Cursed Cutting Crater, is the maximum use of the skill.
- Aurea Poculum (EX→C Rank): A road that leads to a Beast. The Golden Grail that BB possesses. It is also a Holy Grail. A negative Holy Grail that grants its possessor their impudent and egotistical desires. The cup that has been held by the Whore of Babylon, who appears in the Revelation of Saint John the Divine. It is a fake Holy Grail, but it is surely because it is a fake Holy Grail that it has become a “genuine” Holy Grail that grants the desires of humans without a regard to what is right and wrong. Concerning the Christians who regarded honourable poverty as a virtue in those days, this grail – which was formed as a symbol of riches such as gold – was surely to them the connotation of corrupted wealth and greed as well as the vanity that one decides to adorn themselves in. Although it was clear at that point in time that it is called a cup held by the Whore of Babylon, who is the personification of the Roman Empire, this grail symbolizes the riches of the world, which inverted the words of Christ of “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth.” “Now, it’s such a trivial story since it doesn’t even have annny sort of relation to me, so... it’s throoown away into the trash can! A mass of Magical Energy that grants my cravings, a golden honey that dyes anything and everything in my colour... please think of those as this Skill. ... Well, even though overusing this won’t even cast away my boss status, but that being the case, I’ll just restrain myself a little this time, ok? Well then, I wooonder if all the bad children had finished repenting? No? Okaaay, everyone will become PIGS~~♥” "I saw a single woman astride a red beast. This beast, whose entire body was full of numerous blasphemous names, had seven heads and ten horns." This is the description of the beast of destruction that appeared in the Holy City and the woman who was straddling this beast, according to the book of Revelation. A large beast with seven heads like a hydra came from the sea and disembarked toward the Holy City. This beast and woman, while two, are as one, and it is impossible to think of them separately. It is said that this woman was born from evil, and those who are quick to anger, those who are greedy, cannot resist her allure and become corrupted by that grail. This is a digression, but it is sad that the red Saber who claims the title of emperor was, after her death, was seen by believers to be on par with this beast.
- Self-Modification (EX Rank): A skill that allows one to restructure oneself. AIs created by the Moon Cell are under an absolute rule, "Improving one's functionality is not allowed." However, BB, who had escaped that yoke due to her breaking down, began to expand her own functions. In order to boost her calculating power, she had that black noise prey on and dismantle NPCs, AIs, and finally, Servants, and utilized them as her own memory. Though they were appendix-like additions that won't spare her from the fate of collapsing on her own, BB has changed into a hyper level AI who holds an enormous amount of capacity. Like the towns on reclaimed land that continue to build architecture while knowing that it will be swallowed by water or Frakenstein's monster. However, she discovered later on that she could only handle so many modifications before they ran the risk of causing her to shut down from overloading her own programming; BB describes this experience as being akin to putting a nuclear reactor on a manual scooter, with the end result being the engineering equivalent of a malignant tumor's spread. The Sakura Five were created by BB as a workaround to avoid having her thought processes and body fall apart from the strain of over-modification.
- Potnia Theron (EX Rank): Potnia Theron (Conception of All Animals). The authority of the goddesses whom BB compiled and absorbed from the abyss of the mooncell.What it is is the embodiment of the power of creation possessed by the mother goddesses, originating from a forgotten goddess approximately 8000 years ago (the goddess of Çatalhöyük), and branching to Tiamat and Cybele, Ishtar, Inanna, Athena, Astarte, Gaia, Hera, Artemis, Aphrodite, Demeter, Athena, etc. Many are imaged with mural crowns. This is because many of the goddesses were also the guardian deities of cities.
The symbols of this authority are the holes opening in the earth and the sky (caves and the moon), the whirlpools and typhoons of the sea, the craters of volcanos, and so on, and from these, evils bringing forth all manners of death are birthed. But once these evils have finished spreading death, they leave the promise of good harvest and fertility. This authority is none other than the power of bringing death as well as giving life. The earth mother is a guardian deity revered by the people and their protector, and at the same time she is the sacrifice that feeds them with the crops born from her body and the beasts of the fields and the forests. The earth mother feeds man with her blood and flesh, kills man over time and absorbs him as nutrition, and once again feeds man with her replenished blood and flesh. This process is the circle of the food chain, and the cycle of life and death can be said to be the true nature of the earth mother. With this authority, most of the goddesses gave birth to countless monsters and giants and posed a threat to the gods and man, or they gave birth to heroes and became protectors of man. Tiamat and Gaia are examples of those who became threats, and Hera is an example of a mother of heroes.
Those born on this earth cannot defy the authority of the earth mother, as that would mean rebelling against the system of life itself. However, it is when they have left this earth to go into outer space and ended the infantile stage of intelligent lifeforms that they should no longer be bound to this authority... The wish of Çatalhöyük is the coming of that day.
Noble Phantasm[edit | edit source]
However, her true Noble Phantasm is Cursed Cutting Crater.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
- Domina Coronam Capitoline: Crowns of Ten Rulerships/Hill of One (十の支配の冠／一の丘, Jū no Shihai no Kanmuri/Ichi no Oka?) - A self apply skill that turns BB temporarily invincible.
- Domina Coronam Caelius: Crowns of Ten Rulerships/Hill of Five (十の支配の冠／五の丘, Jū no Shihai no Kanmuri/Go no Oka?) - A self apply skill that increases her magic damage.
- Domina Coronam Viminalis: Crowns of Ten Rulerships/Hill of Seven (十の支配の冠／七の丘, Jū no Shihai no Kanmuri/Shichi no Oka?) - Using her teacher pointer to create a Love shape beam which causes magic damage, she calls it "Sakura Beam!" (「さくらビーム！」, Sakura Bīmu?).
BBB[edit | edit source]
BBB (ビィビィビィ, Byibyibyi?) is an "invincible anti-Servant robot of annihilation" created from old arenas of the Moon Cell Holy Grail War. She is an "unparalleled" mech-sized Labyrinth Robot guarding the third floor of the Sakura Labyrinth. In creating her, BB spent two minutes going to the Near Side, collected parts and pieces of old arenas, disassembled them into an enemy program, reset it, and then programmed her own "superior thought routines" with lots of surplus memory. BBB was programmed not to leave the third floor, but Passionlip used Trash & Crush to crush her and throw her into the arena.
BBB is described by Passionlip as "self-important and uncute", and it is said she is more honest about her feelings than BB.
Forms and Alternate Versions[edit | edit source]
Swimsuit[edit | edit source]
- Main article: MoonCancer (Fate/Grand Order - BB Pele)
Development[edit | edit source]
BB was called the Mysterious Black Magus (黒衣の少女, Kokui no Shōjo?, Black-coat Girl). BBB was planned to appear in the third chapter, but was scrapped due to not being an interesting boss.
BB's name was chosen for TYPE-MOON's game development subsidiary, studio BB. In his statement for the studio reveal, Nasu expressed his full support for the development of more TYPE-MOON games, but expressed some puzzlement about the name of the studio.

Item Construction: A

Cursed Cupid Cleanser: C.C.C.
Type: Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm
A unique case that occurred in the Mooncell Automaton. Originally an advanced AI stationed for the sake of managing the health of the Masters, but it went wild due to a bug.
A cyber devil that ruled the far-side of the moon as a cancer that encroached the virtual world, obstructing the SE.RA.PH’s Holy Grail War.
A personification of illegal modifications, who forced the participants of the Holy Grail War to abide by the rules while she herself violated the rules all the time.
A kouhai-type devil heroine who puts all her efforts in manipulating the senpai (Master) as a cheerful, precocious kouhai - all while carrying out world destruction as if part of the breakfast.
“A well-behaved fight is boring, right?
I want to see everybody’s faces of suffering more!”
Just like this, one can tell in a glance that her behavioral and personality settings are twisted, but--- well, that is just your usual BB-chan.
Level 1 Bond
Source: Fate/EXTRA CCC
Alignment: Chaotic Good Gender: Female
“To tell the truth, a Ruler would have been preferable, but I called it off. A framework in which even the Game Master is bound by rules; that is just a machine.
For the sake of love, BB-chan will choke back her tears and torment all of humanity!”
Level 2 Bond
With a behavior that is wicked and excited, a headlong mastermind girl who plunges forwards even when her words and actions slip up.
The personification of a heart in love which, despite originally possessing an introverted character that could not step forward, earnestly becomes proactive for the sake of her beloved.
Despite enthusiastically playing the part of a villain, since she has no groundings in it, she just end up slipping up after all.
Her self-assured manner comes from latent sadistic preferences. The impish-type classification originate from this.
In addition, since she is the type that explodes after much enduring, she displays a tremendous, extreme sadism when the time comes.
“This is so fun!” - she gets high in such a manner while playing a villain, but hanging her head and getting depressed after retiring to the backstage and cooling off is also pretty much routine.
Although she created lesser AIs - the Alteregos - as familiars to help her with her job, she has a bad relationship with the Egos.
Even so that is only natural; for they are not “copies of BB’s personality” but AIs “built with her personality as a basis”, so each one have different opinions to that of their parent, BB.
This is why Meltlilith and Passionlip are designated Alteregos (different personality) and not avatars.
Level 3 Bond
Rank: A Type: Anti-Unit Range: 1~10
Maximum Targets: 1 person
Cursed Cupid Cleanser.
In the past, BB used a Noble Phantasm called Cursed Cutting Crater (Spiritual Particles Imaginary Pitfall), but now she brought out a new technique with a triumphant look while saying:
“I got tired of that after using it so many times. The theme this time is ‘cupid’ and ‘curelize’! Oh, but the cursed part does not disappear just because I become your ally. BB-chan’s curse is eternal!”
Drawing the Mooncell’s power, she changes into the shape of an invincible nurse. Immediately after, she draws malignant information from her territory - the imaginary space - and overwrites the surrounding channel (common awareness) into something chaotic.
Unfolding the Reality Marble, “BB Channel - Branch-off Edition”, and throwing the opponent into a melting pot of disorder... or so she says, but this is simply an syringe attack after BB has changed into nurse clothes.
Level 4 Bond
- Ten Crowns: D (EX)
An Authority-class transcedental skill.
It has been said that the ten crowns indicate the ten evil kings, and the seven hills indicate the abominable city of evil.
If you look at it in simple terms, this is a skill that turns all received injuries, occurred events, any and every result into “something nonexistent”.
As a matter of fact, BB is invincible so long she has this.
“Or so was in the past.
You see, an invincible cheat is disgraceful when you look up close, right?
So this is an unnecessary skill for the beautiful and cute BB-chan that we have now.☆ Oh, but it should be alright to use it just a little, right? Look, just like this!”
- Self-Modification: EX
A skill to remodel oneself.
The Mooncell’s AIs are endowed with an absolute order to “never improve one’s functions”.
However, having escaped such restrain thanks to a breakdown, BB began to expand her own functions. In order to raise her calculation abilities, she decomposes・preys upon NPCs, AIs and even Servants with a black noise and employs them as her own memory.
A retrofit-annex that disregards the danger of self-collapse, but BB became a super AI possessing a vast capacity as a result. Such state is like a city on reclaimed land that continues to build new structures even while sinking; or maybe something more like the monster of Frankenstein.
Level 5 Bond
The out-of-control AI that once caused the Case: CCC.
She was a management AI for the school infirmary, but a bug caused her self-preservation command structure go wild. Reaching the conclusion of “must preserve myself at all costs” for a certain reason, she ended up capturing NPCs, Servants and Masters and turning into a monster that continues to grow.
While declaring to “hate humans”, she brought in a certain Master to the far side of the moon and tormented him. Despite believing herself to be sane, from an objective point of view, she is clearly mad.
One can occasionally feel the inconsistency of excessive affection・disordered love and hate hanging on her behavior, but you should refer to the original CCC in regards to the causes behind this.
Also, her LCK parameter was of the lowest rank (E-), but it became EX thanks to BB’s world-distorting efforts (and devotion).
In other words, she once accomplished a “miracle” that was impossible to be achieved without the assumption of “EX Rank LCK”.
Due the Kiara of the FGO world becoming one with the Kiara of the CCC world, as a countermeasure, the Mooncell temporarily turned BB into a Servant and dispatched her to the FGO world.
(that is because an user of imaginary(1) space such as BB is qualified to restrain Kiara).
Thus, despite being “a reproduction of the bug named BB”, she became able to intervene on the Seraphix as an independent virtual life-form.
The BB that appeared in the FGO world behaves in a impish manner just like during the “CCC Incident”, but for her that incident feels like something from tens of thousands years in the past.
In addition, she can only remain as a Servant like this in the FGO world and is also aware that she does not exist in the original “CCC world”. BB understand that she is a one-night-only dream.
BB places herself not as “a tool to save humanity”, but as “a devil that at times misleads, at times helps humanity”.
“So, it is futile to grow fond of me, you see? For even if you become madly in love with BB-chan, you’ll never be able to catch me (heart)”, or so she says with a triumphant look.

 Fate/EXTRA CCC - BB Secret Garden Information
NAME BB What it's short for is a secret. Call me however you like, Senpai!
HEIGHT 156 cm I wanted to look at Senpai at the cutest possible angle. Though that's a lie.
WEIGHT 46 kg Mm, fufu. Unlike a certain stupid Senpai, I'm full of substance!
3SIZE B85/W56/H87 Fufu, I can feel a certain energetic Senpai's passionate gaze.
HOME The moon The original settings are for Japan, but I'm a genuine, 100%, from the past to the future, someone born on the moon.
BIRTHDAY (According to the settings,) March 2nd. I'm looking forward to what kind of present a certain Senpai with poor sense will give me.
WEAK POINT (As the absolutely flawless, BB-chan,) I don't have anything like a weak point. If I do, it's you, Senpai.
FETISHISM Eyes. Eyes, eye. Glaring, despairing, staring. Humans really are interesting.
◆What do you seek from your partner?
- Frankly, I don't want anything. (So just quietly stay in that corner without fail.)
◆Favorite underwear color?
- (Do you want to see them? Do you want to know?) Of course, I won't tell you! (Huh? They're visible!?)
◆How do you spend your free time?
- The hard-working BB-chan excavates the labyrinth every day without resting. (I'm utterly busy, digging and widening it!)
Generally, those who possess this attribute are considered to be a service-type character who, despite being in a position weaker than the protagonist's and having shallow experiences, gallantly put in the effort to support their senpai.
...There is no doubt that there is no mirror in BB's room.
According to BB, the reason she calls [the PC] Senpai is because she has this SG. Whether she is actually younger or even if she is even a student is dubious, but BB's tone of voice is definitely that of a kouhai treating a senpai with respect. If it has to be said, then "all-purpose-type kouhai (but seriously wicked)".
Well, either way, a kouhai who fires and strikes with her own SG, blasting [the PC] all the back until they are against a wall, can't be called gallant or anything.
Desire to Confine
The SG that BB acquired without even realizing it when she returned alive from the imaginary number space. It appears to be BB's second SG. An SG of the same type is "the desire to monopolize."
In regards to its true nature, it's an SG with a strong tendency toward unorthodox desires. "I want to lock you up." "I don't want to let you out into the outside world." "It would be best if all you had was me." What happens when such desires harden into specific measures.
The imaginary number space that she called the dog space was probably strongly influenced by this SG.
Inversion of Love and Hate
BB's third SG.
When deep affection, due to a certain impetus, changes into hatred. BB, even though she chose this rampaging path to save [the PC], she had this kind of dangerous facet to herself from the beginning.
Both her kouhai attribute and desire to confine arise from this SG. As there is no longer any point in hiding it, let it be plainly declared: To BB, who has a strong S disposition, there are occasions when affection comes to equal mischief.
She wants to bother the person she loves as much as she loves them. She wants to always have the person she loves be mindful of her.
These desires that were deep within BB are this SG's true nature.
A digression: Those BB Channels she repeatedly put on air are her own style of intense love calls, but as that went totally unrecognized, it seems that after the show's airing she would be come depressed all on her own.
WEAK POINT 弱点なんてありませーん
- Frankly, I don't want anything. (So just quietly stay in that corner without fail.)

Golden Grail: EX, Self-Modification: EX, Potnia Theron: EX
Cursed Cutting Crater (C. C. C.)
An attack on the world by BB in control of the Moon Cell.
Also called the spirit particle imaginary pit.
A world purge by means of event rewriting, making maximum use of the EX skill “Potnia Theron” BB had acquired.
The goddess who is the mother of the earth goddesses who created the earth is, in other words, the “root” that created all creation.
This Noble Phantasm is an anti-world Noble Phantasm that outputs information like an ultra-precise 3d printer and crushes the present world with the world desired by the user.
The space eroded by BB becomes imaginary space and a curse that consumes reality. CCC as the name suggests is a cursed pit that bores out reality.
In addition to scattering all objects inside on an atomic level and reconstructing them, it is capable of writing over and rewriting information of fields such as luck and coincidence.
While theoretical, it is also thought possible to distort the time axis by interfering with gravity fields and rewrite the law of cause and effect.
When used in combat, BB’s familiars, the shapeshifters engulf the target, and after turning into a sphere, is wiped out of existence along with the target and the dimension with it.
Normally, a structure in which value can be shared cannot be constructed in the far side of the world, which is imaginary space. What established BB’s internal world as the Sakura labyrinth was the power of this Noble Phantasm.
Advanced Level AI
An artificial intelligence configured according to their program. In this age, they are treated as things that "function as programs," but "do not exist as actual beings." In other words, things that "are" right in front of your eyes but "are not." They are merely a mechanisms for the sake of allowing human lives to progress smoothly.
As it is the same for the SE.RA.PH, they are virtual lifeforms that are created along with the commencement of the Holy Grail War and disposed along with its completion.
Within the SE.RA.PH. the humanoid virtual lifeforms are: the NPCs that perform only one task, AIs who have been granted the capability for self-judgement, and the advanced level AIs who have been trusted with the capability for self-judgement ad the management of a section.
Advanced level AIs are things created to efficiently promote the Moon Cell's primary objective of "human observation." As they are perfect reproductions of humans, they have been programmed with a at least a soul, but while the soul "is there," it is contents are still colorless.
The virtual lifeforms that the SE.RA.PH creates are reset with the round of the Holy Grail War. The NPCs and AIs return to zero, while advanced level AIs retain just their persona and their memories are reset--made to pretend that they never existed.
When the Holy Grail War is over, the one who is left alive is the Master standing at the summit. This is a fact that applies not just to the Masters but is also held in common by the virtual lifeforms that the SE.RA.PH created.
It appears that BB is an advanced level AI entrusted with managing the health of the Masters, the same as Sakura. However, as she is now rampaging for reasons unknown, the methods she uses to "manage the Masters" have become extreme.
Khakkhara of Direction
The teacher's pointer that BB carries. A device that allows her to use her use her authority as an advanced level AI to its fullest. There are restrictions from the far side of the moon, but with this, BB can revise the game rules (spirit particle laws within the SE.RA.PH)
The ten crowns of direction worn by the Beast of Babylon converted into a teacher's cane. This is due to the theory that the seven-headed beast is male, which opposes the theory that it is female; it's true nature is a phallus (an erect rod).
The symbol of the king of the world who was granted power and authority by a great dragon and, during a period of 42 months, spat as many arrogant words as they desired and had received the right to desecrate all things.
The beasts heads are the seven hills of the Roman Empire... Capitolium, Palatium, Aventinus, Esquilinus, Caelius, Quirinalis, Viminalis. In other words, it symbolized the Roman Empire itself, and those ten horns were symbols of... Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Vespasianus, Titus, Galba, Otho, Vitellius... those emperors.

Golden Grail [EX]
The golden grail that BB possesses. The Holy Grail. The Holy Grail that grants its owner's impudent and selfish desires.
The grail that the great enchantress who appears in The Revelation of St. John the Divine holds. Though it's a counterfeit Holy Grail, it's because that it's a counterfeit Holy Grail that it's become a "genuine" Holy Grail that grants the desires of humans without paying heed to right or wrong.
To the Christians of those days, who considered honorable poverty a virtue, this grail, which was formed as a symbol of treasures such as gold, is no doubt the meaning of corrupt wealth, greed, and the vanity that leads one to adorn oneself.
Though it is clear on the occasion that this grail is held by the great enchantress of Babylon which in the personification of the Roman Empire, this grail symbolizes the wealth of the earth, which is the inversion of Christ's words, "Do not pile up the wealth of the earth."
"I saw a single woman astride a red beast. This beast, whose entire body was full of numerous blasphemous names, had seven heads and ten horns."
This is the description of the beast of destruction that appeared in the Holy City and the woman who was straddling this beast, according to the book of Revelation. A large beast with seven heads like a hydra came from the sea and disembarked toward the Holy City. This beast and woman, while two, are as one, and it is impossible to think of them separately.
It is said that this woman was born from evil, and those who are quick to anger, those who are greedy, cannot resist her allure and become corrupted by that grail.
This is a digression, but it is sad that the red Saber who claims the title of emperor was, after her death, was seen by believers to be on par with this beast.
A skill that allows one to restructure oneself. AIs created by the Moon Cell are under an absolute rule, "Improving one's functionality is not allowed."
However, BB, who had escaped that yoke due to her breaking down, began to expand her own functions. In order to boost her calculating power, she had that black noise prey on and dismantle NPCs, AIs, and finally, Servants, and utilized them as her own memory.
Though they were appendix-like additions that won't spare her from the fate of collapsing on her own, BB has changed into a hyper level AI who holds an enormous amount of capacity. Like the towns on reclaimed land that continue to build architecture while knowing that it will be swallowed by water or Frakenstein's monster.
Potnia Theron [EX]
Potnia Theron (Conception of All Animals).
The authority of the goddesses whom BB compiled and absorbed from the abyss of the mooncell.
What it is is the embodiment of the power of creation possessed by the mother goddesses, originating from a forgotten goddess approximately 8000 years ago (the goddess of Çatalhöyük), and branching to Tiamat and Cybele, Ishtar, Inanna, Athena, Astarte, Gaia, Hera, Artemis, Aphrodite, Demeter, Athena, etc.
Many are imaged with mural crowns. This is because many of the goddesses were also the guardian deities of cities.
The symbols of this authority are the holes opening in the earth and the sky (caves and the moon), the whirlpools and typhoons of the sea, the craters of volcanos, and so on, and from these, evils bringing forth all manners of death are birthed.
But once these evils have finished spreading death, they leave the promise of good harvest and fertility. This authority is none other than the power of bringing death as well as giving life.
The earth mother is a guardian deity revered by the people and their protector, and at the same time she is the sacrifice that feeds them with the crops born from her body and the beasts of the fields and the forests.
The earth mother feeds man with her blood and flesh, kills man over time and absorbs him as nutrition, and once again feeds man with her replenished blood and flesh.
This process is the circle of the food chain, and the cycle of life and death can be said to be the true nature of the earth mother. With this authority, most of the goddesses gave birth to countless monsters and giants and posed a threat to the gods and man, or they gave birth to heroes and became protectors of man.
Tiamat and Gaia are examples of those who became threats, and Hera is an example of a mother of heroes.
Those born on this earth cannot defy the authority of the earth mother, as that would mean rebelling against the system of life itself.
However, it is when they have left this earth to go into outer space and ended the infantile stage of intelligent lifeforms that they should no longer be bound to this authority..
The wish of Çatalhöyük is the coming of that day.

Spirit Particle Imaginary Trap
Cursed Cutting Crater (Spirit Particle Imaginary Trap)
The official name of this stage.
The fact that BB had reached the Moon Cell core established this “place”, formerly imaginary space for storing malicious information, as real space in the present, past, and future. It was reconstructed at her hands as a “far side of the moon” where even Masters can exist.
BB attaining the power of the primordial goddess succeeded in quantifying the “nothingness” before the birth of life. She transformed into a master of imaginary space where time and space are indefinite.
While the Moon Cell can’t be hacked however much time is spent, BB was able to take control of it by placing herself in “unlimited time”.
02 The remnants of peaceful days
After the constraints to her free will were removed by Kiara, she was unable to control her status abnormality and went into overload.
As NPCs can only do routine work, they ignored Sakura while she was crashing down as being “non-existent”, and since the mooncell only performs a check at the end of the day in the preliminaries, Sakura was within an inch of termination.
(MC name) witnessing this called to her. Are you okay, he/she said.
The observation of Sakura “being here” by a third party helped her recover her close to disappearing unconscious, and the subsequent nursing gave her a clear ego of “wanting to be here”. Her self-destruction was averted.
What happened afterwards need not be said.
When the next day comes, everything will be erased by the mooncell. Sakura wanting to continue this one day miracle used her higher class AI privilege to repeat the day she came to know the MC for 69 days.
However as time passed, Sakura came to suffer from her self-contradiction as an AI and from the fact that she dragged (MC name) into this.
“The Masters participating in the holy grail war will all die, barring one exception. No, even then (MC name)…..”
Sakura continued to suffer from her desire to continue the loop for eternity and her feelings for (MC name)
The decision she chose ultimately was to seal the 69 days worth of memory, the love she acquired, so she could return to being a normal AI.
An AI cannot delete records.
Because of that, she moved the memory to a backup machine to reset herself.
Believing that to be the best choice for (MC name).
But even if the memories in the mind are lost, the memories recorded by the body continue to live. Though she had forgotten everything and was back to being a normal AI, she was shaken by emotional values of unknown origin every time she talked with the MC.
Meanwhile, the backup to which she moved her memory, couldn’t tolerate herself, and she decided her course of action and made her move as BB, the rebel plotting to destroy the system of the mooncell for a certain objective.
The timing she took control of the far side of the moon was between the end of the fifth round and the beginning of the sixth in real time. Four Masters who were not defeated yet, (MC name), Leo, Rin, and Rani, and the irregular exception Jinako were kidnapped to the far side during the war while they were still alive.
Matou Shinji, Gato, Julius were moved to imaginary space 0.00001 seconds before the firewall would have destroyed them after they were defeated, prolonging their flash of life.
Regardless, CCC is a dream by BB.
If the dreamer is no more, the world ought to return to a reality where nothing happened.
By the way, the everyday scenery in the prologue that (MC name) saw in his nightmare was an artificial paradise modeled off the discarded 69 days.
After pulling (MC name) to the near side, BB placed his digital body in the old school building, putting into a deep sleep and sealing him in a never ending dream.
Normally, he would have lived peacefully in the looping everyday life, but the strength of his bond with his Servant, or his own will rejecting the peaceful days caused cracks in the artificial garden and (MC name) came to notice something was not right.
In order to place (MC name) into deep slumber once more, BB reset the school building and tried to redo the dream, but the (MC name) escaped the reset and leaped into a deeper part of imaginary space
It was a depth deeper than the bottom of Id.
“The death of the collective unconscious” beneath the unconscious.
What saved (MC name) who leaped into a region even BB cannot affect was the voice of the Servant whose fate was shared with his.
Thus, the contract was sealed, and (MC name) woke up in the old school building left in the far side.
