Profile[edit | edit source]
Identity[edit | edit source]
The first member of the Knights of the Round Table, who served as the steward of the royal court, the king's care-taker. Compared to the Bedivere of the Fate/stay night timeline, the Bedivere of Fate/Grand Order is an alternate possibility, wherein he hasn't returned Excalibur before Artoria dies. Despite not being as popular as knights like Lancelot, Percival, and Galahad, who embarked on the quest for the Holy Grail, he was one of the most senior knights along with Kay and Gawain, displaying a history even older than Arthur, whose name was thought to be derived from the ancient War God of the Celts, Bedwyr. He eventually came to serve the young king out of admiration of her, entrusting his sword to her and working to become her personal guard. Seeing her indifference as her trying to be fair without allowing her personal feelings to interfere, he most wished to see her true face and expressions by being near her. Although he thought her true self would become apparent outside of her court duties, his eventual promotion to the rank of Imperial Guard proved him wrong. Although he guarded her more closely than the other knights and constantly watched her behavior, he was unable to see her smile even once.
This Bedivere lived as "if that did not returned King Arthur's holy sword", and King Arthur died. As atonement, he kept on living during a long time for the sake of "returning the holy sword this time for sure", and eventually ran out of strength at Avalon. Not an actual Heroic Spirit, but rather a human from the distant past, he is granted power enough to battle the Knights of the Round Table by Merlin.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Over 10 kg of his weight corresponds to the "silver arm".
Personality[edit | edit source]
Bedivere is exceptionally loyal to his king, putting her well-being above his own and even her own orders on her deathbed. He does not see serving as a knight as serving his country, but only serving his king because of the sole reason that she is the king. Unlike those knight who had begun to drift away from her and those who saw her as inhuman due to her lack of emotion, he feels pride in her and remains loyal throughout Mordred's rebellion. He later begins to even feel some anger towards the situation, believing that she who has accomplished such great deeds should be granted the ability to show a peaceful face. Although he want his king to be given "the light", he finds himself unable to grant her even that. He never found out about her true nature as a woman.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
- Artoria Pendragon (Lancer)
- "The "Knight King" alike with mine own king. To say that the sight of her brings not disorder to my heart in the slightest would be a lie. Be that as it may, yes. She is not mine king."
- Artoria Pendragon
- "Mine king who hold of the holy sword----- How very similar. An ally who is the same person, yet at the same time, different. May her future be blessed and filled with shining happiness."
- Knights of the Round Table
- "As I thought, once again they are not they who fought together with me. And yet they are important for me. My dear brothers. Indeed, from my heart can I speak of those words."
- "It may be that he does not fully comprehend that I am not the Bedivere that he knew. he would not have been so familiar with me otherwise... Nay. I may have spoken beyond imprudence. He is a knight deep in emotion. It would not be strange were he already knew of everything and have thought of is considerably."
- "I would not wish for such a heartbreaking thought for the second time upon little Gareth (actually here is Gareth-chan but I'm not comfortable using it) Smiling face suits her the most."
- Arash/the Hassans/Xuanzang Sanzang/Tawara Touta
- "Those who remember of those days are only I, Master, Mash, and Da Vinci. Still, I am glad. For I can, once again, exchanged words with them."
- "An enemy who once crossed swords with mine king. In the "Histories of the Kings of Britain", he killed me. In actuality, while I was indeed injured in that battle, I did not lose my life. And yet, at the end of a long journey, my body was already no different from that of a dying one. ...Therefore, I used the name of the enemy general who was said to have killed me as mine own."

Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
Sixth Singularity: Camelot[edit | edit source]
Failing to return Excalibur to Vivian, Bedivere spent 1500 years searching for Artoria Pendragon, kept alive by the holy sword itself. Because of his failure, Artoria was unable to die, and with Rhongomyniad still in hand, she wandered the earth and eventually became a Divine Spirit. Bedivere eventually ended up in Avalon, where he was found at its edge by the fairies as a human shaped rock. Merlin told him the Artoria that became Goddess Rhongomyniad is an impossibility that only manifested thanks to the Singularity's influence. He knew the Artoria who went to Avalon, while Bedivere knew the Artoria who became Goddess Rhongomyniad. He then gave Bedivere a chance to complete his final task given to him by Artoria. He casts a spell on him to hide his true identity from others. He says the Knights of the Round Table will awaken to the truth of Goddess Rhongomyniad if they learn of Bedivere's true identity. If they know, they'll try to stop him from reaching Goddess Rhongomyniad, who no longer remembers him. Merlin warns him that he'll die regardless of the upcoming battle's result, as his soul is already exhausted. Despite knowing that, Bedivere still wishes to complete his journey. Merlin then disguises Excalibur as Airgetlám, and warns Bedivere it'll use his soul as fuel with every use. He then transports him to the Singularity.
Bedivere arrives in the wasteland, calling his own impoverished homeland prosperous in comparison. He then begins his journey to find Goddess Rhongomyniad. While crossing the Egyptian desert, he witnesses Ritsuka, Mash, and Leonardo da Vinci stop Hundred-Faced Hassan and her compatriots from kidnapping Nitocris. He helps the group fight the sphinx summoned by Nitocris, introducing himself as Lucius. After killing the sphinx, he explains to Nitocris that the group saved her, having witnessed it himself. He warns he'll fight her and she may lose standing with Ozymandias if she refuses to believe. Nitocris question the group's altruistic actions since they aren't Egyptian citizens. She realizes the Saracens could be the only culprits though after Bedivere asks if the knights of the Holy City had reason to abduct her. Realizing her error, Nitocris brings the group to Ramesseum Tentyris as a show of gratitude. After Nitocris clears the sandstorm, Bedivere departs from the group since the temple isn't his destination.
He eventually comes to the Holy City of Camelot and hides himself amongst the refugees. When Mash is struggling against Gawain, he arrives to help her. He criticizes Gawain’s denouncement of Mash’s beliefs, saying individual beliefs and actions on the battlefield are separate. He then uses Airgetlám to disable Gawain’s Gift. He then fights him until he collapses from using Airgetlám. Mash carries him as they escape while Gawain is disoriented by Da Vinci’s flashbang.
After successfully escaping, Bedivere thanks the group for their help. He proposes to the refugee leader that they’ll protect the refugees in exchange for them acting as their guide. It is necessary to enter the mountainous region to the north controlled by the Saracens without incident since most of the group share the same race as those in Camelot. After Bedivere convinces the refugee leader to act as a mediator, the group takes a break before heading north. He apologizes for using a false name before, as he couldn’t fully trust the group then. He confesses he originally intended to enter Camelot to ask Goddess Rhongomyniad about her actions. He agrees with Romani Archaman that the Knights of the Round are only focusing on turning Camelot into utopia. He then admits Merlin sent him into the Singularity, having learned of Chaldea’s mission from him. He reveals the Knights of the Round already conquered the Holy Land from the Crusaders and constructed Camelot when he arrived. He admits his Airgetlám is a replica provided by Merlin to compensate for his one arm, though it’ll burn him with excessive use. Da Vinci deduces it can counter the Knights of the Rounds’ Gifts, though at the risk of Bedivere’s safety. The group is eventually confronted by Lancelot and his knights, who were sent to capture them. They fight them until Da Vinci converts her vehicle into a bomb and drives it into the knights, allowing the others to escape.
As they continue their journey, the group kills monsters at Bedivere’s behest for their meat. Bedivere quotes Artoria afterwards, saying monster meat is not nutritionally different from other meat. The group then notice the land has been scarred by Rhongomyniad that Goddess Rhongomyniad unleashes indiscriminately. Bedivere proclaims the Round Table has fallen and considers Artoria now to be a tyrant worse than a Vortigern. He therefore decides that for the people’s sake, Goddess Rhongomyniad is an existence that can’t be forgiven and must be eradicated. The group eventually near the eastern mountain village when Hassan of the Cursed Arm arrives, assuming they’re intruders. He lets the refugees take shelter, but he attacks the group, as he is wary that they’re allied with Camelot. He tries to continue fighting despite his injuries until Arash stops him. Arash convinces him to let the group into the village.
In the village, Bedivere declares his intention to return to Camelot alone, but he’s convinced he can’t in his condition. Later that night, he tells Mash that the Heroic Spirit fused her is a Knight of the Round. He suspects the Knights of the Round she encountered before also felt the same as him. He calls the knight fused her the strongest, wisest, courageous of them all; the only one who chose a spiritual and mindful rather than one of strength and martial prowess. Bedivere refuses to tell Mash the knight’s name though, believing she should discover it herself. He questions however, if Mash can fight against the knight’s former comrades. Mash realizes her mental figure when she saw Camelot and fought Gawain was due to the knight refusing to be the work of Artoria. Bedivere agrees, believing Goddess Rhongomyniad’s actions aren’t those the Artoria they know would take. He then asks Ritsuka and Mash why they intend to fight against Camelot if their intention is to correct the era. He considers Chaldea neutral against Camelot, unlike him and the Saracens who are considered rebels to be purged. He is nonetheless delighted to hear they fight against Camelot. He decides he’ll try to convince Cursed Arm to fight alongside him tomorrow.
The next day, Cursed Arm explains the other villages, each protected by a Hassan, are gathering forces to fight the Lion King. He accepts the group as allies after fighting them with Arash. He then reveals two of the Hassans were killed by the Knights of the Round; Lancelot killed Hassan of the Trembling Pipe; Gawain killed Hassan of the Peeling Shadows. Learning of Intoxicated Smoke’s death, Cursed Arm is warned of an attack on the western village by Mordred.
Given it would take two days to travel to the western village, Arash launches himself and the others there. They ambush and kill several of Mordred’s knights when Mordred confronts them. She reveals her Gift, Rampage, allows her to launch her Noble Phantasm continuously until her soul burns out. She reminds him that he never won against her before fighting him. She is impressed by Airgetlám, wondering where Bedivere got it since she doesn't remember him having it. Bedivere insults her intelligence like he always did, but she reminds him he only sat the Round Table's extra seat. She also says he'd have never become Artoria's attendant if Agravain didn't die. She boasts he is nothing compared to her, saying Artoria only took a liking to him. Bedivere doesn't contest he is inferior to the other knights, but Artoria relied on him until her final breath. He reveals he was granted Airgetlám by Merlin to repay her kindness. Mordred decides to kill him, saying she'll not even report about him to the Lion King. Enraged she is losing despite her Gift, Mordred removes her helmet as her armor rejects her Gift. She prepares to launch Clarent Blood Arthur, but Arash shoots her joints to stop her. Mordred then retreats since her unit was eliminated, saying she’ll fight the group in Camelot. The village is successfully protected, but Bedivere passes out from the strain.
Bedivere recalls a time in his past when Artoria suddenly visited him in a watchtower without her attendants. She says some villages must be dismantled to deal with the harsh winter. She considers it misfortunate considering they only recently drove away the Picts from the north. Bedivere recalls how she led foreign tribes to victory against Vortigern, united the warring feudal lords to drive off the Picts from the north and Saxons from the mainland, and restored Castle Camelot. He tells her that Britain shall never perish, and suffering shall never prevail, as long as she lives. Artoria refutes this by noting the lands outside of Camelot’s are still in ruin. She says the lives of those villages were destroyed cannot regain their lifestyles, even if Camelot were to accommodate them. She believes work hard, raising a family, and living fulfilling lives is what leads to future prosperity. She also believes there is no future in merely sheltering the people. Bedivere recalls how Artoria always looked grim in the contrast to the other Knights of the Round who were giddy from their victories and glories. He also recalls how Kay told him how Artoria used to smile when they traveled in disguise before Camelot was destroyed. He then asks her why she choose a worthless knight like him to join the Round Table. Artoria chides him for calling himself inferior to the other knights, as the same applies to her. She continues bonds cannot be measured by strengths and weaknesses alone. She reveals the Knights of the Round each serve a different purpose. Bedivere recalls how Artoria was the only one who saw the situation in its entirety. Artoria then tells him the Saxons aren’t evil, knowing the others knights would only criticize her. She says the Saxons are only searching for a land to live on, believing their intentions are inherently good. She believes they’ll serve an important function for Britain if that is true. She continues conflicts will arise as long as they are human, believing the division between people comes from benefit and detriment. Not wanting to create a Round Table bound only by strength in a war torn era, she had the knights take many roles to ensure their country’s future. She then calls Camelot a place born from man’s desire to create a utopia, albeit just barely. For that reason knights like Bedivere are needed, as their compassion allows them to learn details of the people’s lives that Artoria or Gawain wouldn’t notice. Bedivere recalls how he never realized how hopeless Artoria felt until he heard it from Merlin. He then confesses to Artoria how he enjoys living in Camelot, saying how his friend Thomas’s wife recently gave birth to twin girls. Artoria is glad to hear he is living a fulfilling life. Bedivere realized at that moment that Artoria didn’t smile for herself, but upon seeing the happiness of others. The memory ends with him wishing for her forgiveness for his sin.
He recovers by the time Ritsuka’s party return after recruiting Xuanzang Sanzang and Tawara Touta, and rescued Hassan of Serenity. The group realize they’re seriously outmatched in terms of power and numbers. Their solders number 7000, while Camelot has 10,000 soldiers who each equal three Saracen soldiers. The Knights of the Round are greater than three Servants with their Gifts. Hundred-Faced realizes they need more soldiers, and they need to kill the Knights of the Round. The group recognizes they need someone to fight Gawain since their assault on Camelot will always fail as long as he’s at the front gate. Serenity suggests going to the Shrine of Azrael to ask for the First Hassan, whose location she was tortured for. Bedivere recalls Merlin telling him to visit Hassan if he is to rise against Goddess Rhongomyniad. Cursed Arm agrees with the idea and tells the others to return to the eastern village. There he will show them the secrets of the Hassan sect.
As the group travel back to the eastern village, Hundred Faced parts ways with them to gather more troops. Two days later they return to the village. Bedivere agrees with Serenity's description that Hassan is stronger than even Goddess Rhonghomyniad. To Hassan all Servants equal to his blade, and those who oppose him are killed by "their own fate". Bedivere claims his knowledge of Hassan is second hand from a mage when Cursed Arm asks how a Knight of the Round like himself would know. Before Bedivere leaves with the others, Arash tells him not to force himself. Declaring the Knights of the Round fight the wrong way, he tells Bedivere to make a choice where everyone survives. Bedivere agrees, finding especially meaningful coming from Arash.
The group reaches the Shrine after a day and enters after defeating its ghost guardians. Hassan agrees to help the Lion King, but he decides to punish the group for entering the Shrine. He’ll forgive their transgression if they pass his trial. He then takes control of Serenity to fight the group as part of the trial, which they pass. Hassan agrees to aid against the Lion King once the group learned the truth of the Lion King, Ozymandias, and the Incineration of Humanity. Bedivere questions Cursed Arm needs to be executed when Hassan prepares to do so. Hassan answers it is because any Hassan who asks for his assistance is considered not be worthy of the title. He directs them to the Atlas Institute in the desert, as to where they can learn all these answers.
The group return to the eastern village, only to find it besieged by forces led by Tristan and Lancelot. Bedivere, Touta, and Sanzang go to rescue the villagers, while the others fed off the attack. When Ritsuka, Mash, and Serenity are about to be killed by Tristan, Bedivere arrive just in time to stop him. He rebukes him for killing innocent villagers and burning the village, saying he lost his pride as a Knight of the Round. Tristan calls it a mistake to think a Knight of the Round wouldn’t harm an innocent commoner. He then recalls how the benevolent Artoria warned against going too far, but she never forbade it. He chides Bedivere for only seeing Artoria’s glory, and for not understanding her horror. He then reiterates that Artoria doesn’t understand people’s feelings, which prompts Bedivere to attack him in rage. Bedivere says because they were friends, he cannot forgive Tristan’s actions. He will kill him to confront Goddess Rhongomyniad if she sanctioned the attack. The group fight Tristan again with Bedivere’s help, but he still overwhelms them. Sanzang, Touta, and Cursed Arm then arrive to help. However, they all bear witness as Rhongomyniad destroys the western village. Tristan then leaves, warning Rhongomyniad will strike the eastern village in five minutes. A grievously injured Arash then arrive; he calls his resolve nothing compared to Bedivere’s loyalty. He understands Bedivere can only Airgetlám one more time. He confesses it was thanks to his Clairvoyance that he knew the truth about Bedivere. The others then evacuate while Arash successfully counters Rhongomyniad with Stella.
The following day, the village holds a funeral for those lost, including Arash. Cursed Arm reveals Hundred-Faced evacuated the majority of the western village before it was destroyed. He implores Ritsuka to head for the Atlas Institute before Camelot attacks the village again. In the meantime, he and the other Hassans will gather their forces for the assault on Camelot, and spread word of Ritsuka to the other Saracens. He agrees with Romani to rendezvous in the village for final confirmation on the assault once Ritsuka returns. Before leaving, he tells Bedivere that he will never forgive the Knights of the Round for what happened, especially Tristan whose death will be the cruelest. He warns him that no mercy shall be given if he defends Tristan. Bedivere swears he will not, saying all the injustices committed by the Knights of the Round is a responsibility held by all the knights. He then implores Cursed Arm to treat him like the other knights if Goddess Rhongomyniad is exposed as the true evil. He then leaves for the desert with Ritsuka, Mash, Sanzang, and Touta.
Using a map given to them by an agent of Hundred-Faced, the group search the desert for the Atlas Institute. They’re soon met by Lancelot and his knights, who were sent to capture them. Bedivere asks him why he chose to serve Goddess Rhongomyniad. He recounts how Gawain believes Artoria no matter what, Mordred said rebelling against her is sacrilege, and Tristan asserts her commandments are merciful. Lancelot confesses the actions of Goddess Rhongomyniad aren’t those of the Artoria he knew, declaring he swore allegiance to the latter, not the former. The group then fight, but they retreat when Lancelot proves too strong. A giant illusion of Nitocris then manifests, distracting the knights enough for the group to escape. The knights give chase, only for both parties to run into a sphinx nest. After slaying the sphinxes, the group enters the Atlas Institute via a pitfall fall. There they are met by Sherlock Holmes.
Sherlock leads the group to the central area, while they destroy any activated defenses. At the center, the group finds a still functioning Tri-Hermes. Sherlock reveals it still functions because the Institute is from the present era. He then accesses its records to discover what happened in the Fuyuki Holy Grail War of 2004, considering it an important factor to the truth of the Incineration of Humanity. Neither the course of the war nor its conclusion is known, only its victor, Marisbilly Animusphere, being recorded. Sherlock reveals Romani was Marisbilly’s assistant during that time before joining Chaldea to become head of the medical division. He finds it strange there are no records of Romani before then. He considers the possibility of him being connected to the Incineration of Humanity. He then reveals Chaldea could stabilize their summoning system with the Round Table as it was a place where heroes. He further reveals it is the core of Mash’s shield, and the Heroic Spirit fused with her is Galahad. Bedivere agrees with Galahad’s decision to entrust his powers to Mash. Sherlock then uses Tri-Hermes’s remaining power to learn about Rhongomyniad. He asks Bedivere what he knows about it, to which Bedivere replies the Knights of the Round weren’t informed it. He recalls Merlin called it the Tower at the Ends of the World, a pillar of lights that stands beyond the horizon west of Britain. Sherlock reveals the Tower is Rhongomyniad’s true form while the lance is a terminal to access its Authority. Goddess Rhongomyniad plans to use it to create an ideal world by gathering virtuous souls. According Tri-Hermes’ calculations, Rhongomyniad can hold 500 souls. Sherlock reveals it is Camelot’s true form, where the selected are sealed away. They’re gathered as ideal examples of humanity’s virtue, and they will be sealed forever once Camelot returns to its true form. Upon the Tower’s completion, the Ends of the Worlds will consume the era. With this information, the group rush back to the surface. Along the way, Sherlock ponders that Solomon incinerated humanity for a different goal. He theorizes Solomon chose 2016 to begin the incineration in part because his clairvoyance couldn’t see beyond it.
Returning to the surface, the group is confronted by Lancelot and his knights. Bedivere asks him if he knows about Goddess Rhongomyniad’s true intentions. Lancelot attacks him and confesses he knew of Goddess Rhongomyniad’s intentions as she announced them after she summoned the Knights of the Round. He attacks Bedivere again, but Mash blocks it this time. Influenced by Galahad, she is enraged that Lancelot would serve Goddess Rhongomyniad despite knowing her actions are wrong. She defeats him in a duel, and he is convinced to join the group. Lancelot then escorts them for half a day to a secret refugee camp that serves as a shelter for those unselected. The group also find Da Vinci alive there, as Lancelot had protected her back then. After Mash relays what they learned in the Institute, Da Vinci realizes Goddess Rhongomyniad intends to create an isolated space for the purest of humanity to continue existing following the Incineration of Humanity. Lancelot reveals Artoria was already Goddess Rhongomyniad when she summoned the Knights of the Round. Da Vinci reveals Artoria became so when she turned into a Divine Spirit by holding Rhongomyniad too long. Romani reveals her intention to create a world without humans would disrupt human history, even if Chaldea restores humanity. Lancelot suggests convincing Ozymandias to help when the group recognizes their forces aren’t enough. Later, on Da Vinci’s request, Bedivere goes to contact the Saracens.
After Ritsuka’s party sucessfully gain Ozymandias’s cooperation, they return to the eastern mountain village. Bedivere and the Hassans have been making preparations for the final battle. Serenity confirms they’ve gathered 17, 000 followers. Hundred Faced says there are 2,000 people in Camelot secretly supporting their rebellion. The rebellion had difficulty growing at first, but it grew exponentially after Ritsuka and Mash saved the refugees from the Holy Execution. Later, Cursed Arm reviews their strategy with Ritsuka. The group will join the forces positioned at the wasteland, then march towards Camelot. Lancelot offers to lead the army since he knows all the blind spots to avoid the patrol. However, there will be no blind spots once they reach Camelot’s territory. Cursed Arm continues that they’ll march onto Camelot during the night. The army will breakthrough the Lion King’s forces and force their way into the city. After they capture the city and its castle, Ritsuka’s group will kill Goddess Rhongomyniad. With discussions over, Ritsuka, Mash, and Bedivere prove their resolve to the Hassans through combat. Afterwards, everyone takes time to rest.
That night Bedivere is found by Mash crying by himself. He tells her that he was crying out of fear of his own actions. He questions if his decision is right or not, feeling he is wrong. He admits he's been terrified of meeting Goddess Rhongomyniad ever since coming to the Singularity. He asks Mash, as a fellow Knight of the Round, if she has doubts. Mash confesses she is scared of facing Goddess Rhongomyniad also, but she wants to believe in the trust Galahad placed in her and Ritsuka. Bedivere admits he thought he and Mash were the same when he heard she was a Demi-Servant. He claims to have committed an unforgivable crime, and he came to the Singularity to atone for it. He finds himself pitiful that he averted his attention away from others' distress to focus on his mission. He only joined the group to fulfill his mission. He fears his long journey will come to a meaningless end. Mash refutes it won't end meaninglessly, believing Bedivere's final salvation will be equal to the path he walked. After agreeing with her, Bedivere tells Mash that her Noble Phantasm's true nature is to protect people, so he should focus on the people she wishes to protect, rather than repelling attacks. It is the is the path to the true Camelot that will never crumble.
In the wastelands near Camelot, the group review their strategy once more when Romani reports the city is prepared for them. Ritsuka, Mash, Da Vinci, and Bedivere will head for the main gates with the infantry. Lancelot will lead his unit while Sanzang and Touta travel together. Once Cursed Arm reaches the castle wall, he’ll thin out the archers placed there by Agravain. Ozymandias’ sphinxes will create a diversion on the west side of Camelot, which the allied forces will use as an opportunity to attack. Lancelot’s knights will advance before Ritsuka’s group, though Lancelot suspects heavy losses before they even reach the front gate. He orders the allied forces to advance when a sandstorm created by Hassan suddenly appears from the north to envelop Camelot. With the storm making both sides’ archers useless, the allied forces advance onto Camelot as fast as possible.
As the allied forces fight through Camelot’s army, Gawain fights Hassan without access to his Gift. Meanwhile, the allied forces are being overwhelmed by Camelot’s forces, as they struggle to breakthrough to the city. Any ladders they mount to climb the wall are destroyed the instant they’re mounted. The sphinxes attacking the main are also unable to even scratch because Camelot only allows access to those with righteous hearts. However, Sanzang uses Five Elements Mountain - Shaka Nyorai Palm at full power to destroy the front gate at the cost of her life. Her sacrifice allows the allied forces to advance.
Ritsuka’s group finally enters Camelot. They soon near the castle when the Tower suddenly manifests around it. It has been fully activated, and the Ends of the World are now encroaching onto Camelot. Mordred suddenly ambushes Bedivere, but Bedivere says they have no time to waste on her when she gets ready to fight. He considers it disgraceful she considers herself to be Artoria’s heir, saying she lacks her sense of duty from before. He reminds her that Goddess Rhongomyniad will destroy the world and her men, but Mordred isn’t surprised by that. She continues Goddess Rhongomyniad is creating a city where an army isn’t needed. She and the other knights will gladly die to become the Foundation of Humanity created by Goddess Rhongomyniad. She asks Bedivere how he could understand their feelings since he stayed with Artoria until her death. She is defeated in the ensuing fight, but she refuses to die by someone who isn’t Artoria. Bedivere tells her that she’ll never be able to serve Artoria wholeheartedly, even though she wanted to. He considers himself and Mordred weak because they failed to save and kill Artoria respectively. Even though he considers both of them to be unworthy as knights, he believes she surpasses him because of her dream to serve Artoria despite being hated. He apologizes for ruining her dream and finishes her off.
After Mordered disappears, the Tower is destroyed when Ozymandias and Nitocris ram Ramesseum Tentyris into it. Romani however warns the era is still being destroyed, revealing what was destroyed was only Rhongomyniad’s sheath. The group needs to defeat Goddess Rhongomyniad to stop the era’s collapse. They soon run into Lancelot, who tells them that their forces have the advantage. He decides not to join the group to instead find and kill Agravain. After Lancelot leaves, Bedivere describes Agravain as the same as he ever was; Artoria’s advisor mistakenly viewed as a villain. He felt the same until he realized the collapse of the Round Table and the fall of the kingdom began after Agravain’s death. He believes Artoria needed him more than Merlin, which Mash agrees with. She admits she felt relieved when she saw him, as if Galahad was saying Artoria will be fine if Agravain remains. Bedivere calls Galahad a great judge of character, believing Agravain had justice in his heart if Galahad trusted him. Suddenly he blocks a shot by Tristan from a rooftop. Bedivere tells him that the Tristan he knew disappeared in the burning eastern village. As one who served the King of Knights, he cannot allow himself to be defeated by a Knight of the Lion King. Tristan says the former Round Table never existed in the Singularity, as they think of nothing of destroying the era. The group then fight him until the Hassans arrive to fight him instead. The group use this opportunity to advance into the castle.
Inside the castle, the group near the throne when they’re confronted by Gawain. He reveals the knight’s job was done when the Tower was activated, so those left must figure out how to serve the king in their own way. He was told by Goddess Rhongomyniad that he could do anything after she summoned him and the other knights. He says Bedivere he couldn’t understand his elation at that, calling it a coincidence that Bedivere was present for Artoria’s final moments. He decided to serve Goddess Rhongomyniad, as he blamed his focus on his personal grudges for Artoria’s death. He then reveals Percival, Kay, Gaheris, Palamedes, King Pellinore, and Bors had revolted against Goddess Rhongomyniad after being summoned instead of accepting her proposal. They were of course killed by those who accepted her proposal. Gawain believes those who pledged loyalty to Goddess Rhongomyniad were branded as sinners, but he is grateful to serve her nonetheless. Call himself not a knight who serves the King of Knights but the Lion King, he challenges Bedivere. Bedivere accepts, calling his right arm the end of his loyalty and proof of his sin he couldn’t erase. For the sake of truly saving the one who walked alone, he fights Gawain. After being defeated, Gawain calls his fate as an unfaithful knight. Bedivere however refutes there is no knight more loyal than him. He finds he and Gawain are the same, as they admired what it meant to be the king instead of the concept of honor. Gawain asks him why he only appears now at the end, believing Goddess Rhongomyniad may have regained her heart if he came sooner. He then disappears saying he wholeheartedly resents Bedivere. Afterwards, the group advance onto the throne room.
Inside the throne room, the group confronts Goddess Rhongomyniad. She declares correcting the course of humanity and killing her are the same. She further declares Ritsuka’s soul knows good yet commits evil, thus their soul is not needed in her utopia. She then prepares to fight the group, unleash the storm at the Ends of the World as well. She declares she will eternally store the truly virtuous of humanity in Rhongomyniad in order to save humanity from Solomon’s plan. She then asks Mash if she understands her ideal, knowing she is one whose life is more limited than others. She then fights the group, her Authority down on them and her magical energy destroying pieces of SHEBA. She declares humanity will be granted eternity inside her lance as the ultimate conclusion of protecting it. Mash however rejects her ideal and challenges her to combat. In response, Goddess Rhongomyniad launches Rhongomyniad, but Mash blocks it with her true Noble Phantasm, Lord Camelot. As she continues to block it, Bedivere tells Mash that her shield will never falter as long as her resolve is true. He tells her that Camelot’s walls listen to their wielder’s heart, so doubts and impurities will weaken it. Goddess Rhongomyniad fails to recognize Bedivere, and she begins to struggle to remember after recognizing the light from Airgetlám. Bedivere thanks Ritsuka for helping him get this way and their kindness. He then apologizes for keeping the truth about Goddess Rhongomyniad to himself this whoe time. The others notices his body is breaking down, and that he is only a regular human. Bedivere apologizes for the deception and reveals Airgetlám is Excalibur in disguise. Goddess Rhongomyiad remembers his name upon hearing this. Bedivere reveals he is the one responsible for Artoria’s transformation. Despite having no memories of him, she orders him to throw Excalibur away, and return to her. Bedivere rejects the order, calling himself an enemy she must strike down. Declaring it is his duty to stop her as one who served the King of Knights, he and the others fight her. Goddess Rhongomyniad is shocked that a mere human like Bedivere is pushing her back, even as his body breaks down. She asks him why he is doing this, to which he replies it’s because he remembers her smile. Bedivere thanks her on behalf of the Knights of the Round for saving Britain, despite being isolated from the others. Calling her his shining star, he then returns Excalibur to her despite her pleas from him not to use it. With Excalibur returned to her, Goddess Rhongomyniad remembers Bedivere, and thanks him for being her last and loyal knight. Bedivere then disappears with his task now complete.
When Ritsuka, Mash, and Da Vinci return to Chaldea, they find that Bedivere has been registered as a Spirit Origin within their database despite his soul burning out. They speculate that the right to become a Heroic Spirit may have been granted to him in recognition of his deeds in the Singularity.

Noble Phantasm[edit | edit source]
In order to stop the Lion King in the Camelot Singularity and atone for his sins, Merlin modified Excalibur into a prosthetic arm known as Switch On - Airgetlám. This Noble Phantasm is constantly active-type, and even though his output is usually that of an average human, when performing activation for combat, the STR, CON, and AGI parameter rises to the ones shown in his status, gaining a bonus for his sword attack. Thanks to this Divine Construct, Bedivere can fight against the other Knights of the Round Table.

He was the last remaining knight who returned the holy sword back to the lake according to the King's orders.
Lancelot, Percival, Galahad were some of the popular knights of King Arthur's who embarked on the quest for the Holy Grail, but they were actually junior knights who joined later for the quest.
The earliest and most famous knights who swore allegiance to King Arthur included Ser Kay, Ser Gawain, and Ser Bedivere. They had histories even older than King Arthur's.
Ser Bedivere's name was thought to be derived from the ancient War God of the Celts, Bedwyr.
By the way, Ser Bedivere was not aware that Artoria was a girl.
