Berserker (バーサーカー, Bāsākā?) is the Berserker-class Servant of Kariya Matou during the Fourth Holy Grail War of Fate/Zero.

He is one of the Servants of Ritsuka Fujimaru of the Grand Orders conflicts of Fate/Grand Order.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Identity[edit | edit source]

Berserker's True Name is Lancelot, also known as the Knight of the Lake (湖の騎士, Mizūmi no kishi?), the person serving as a negative symbol of the Arthurian legend.[3][6] The "Knight of the Lake", admired as the strongest even among the Knights of the Round Table.[3] He was extremely loyal to King Arthur as one of the Knights of the Round Table. Lancelot's downfall began when he fell in love with Artoria's queen, Guinevere.[7] It is said that the tragic love story of Diarmuid Ua Duibhne and Grainne later became the story model of Guinevere and Lancelot.[8]

Life[edit | edit source]

He was originally born and raised in France.[9] Having lost his parents as a child, he was raised by the fairy of the lake Nimue and thus gained the alias "Knight of the Lake".[3]

He had heard rumors of the King of Britain. He believed the King of Knights in Britain was pure nonsense. He began to compare himself with the King of Knights until he decided to travel to Britain to see the legendary king with his own eyes.[9]

He met the King as soon as he landed in Britain in the midst of battle. It carved a deep impression of the King when he saw the sight of a young boy riding on his horse, gallantly swinging her sword in a horde of invaders. It proved how wrong he was, the requirement to battle day and night was not physical attributes but it was one who holds unwavering convictions. Lancelot had fought together with the King in that battle, and for his accomplishments he was granted the honor of speaking with her as a friend and invited to Camelot as a guest. Before long, he began desiring a seat on the Round Table. He became a knight among the Round table and saw many battles.[9]

He had many famous exploits, including once hiding his name and disguising himself to enter a horse race for the sake of a friend’s honor. Even after falling into a trap and being forced to face the enemy's blades with only his bare hands, he had proved victorious with his skilled fighting prowess using only an elm branch.

Downfall[edit | edit source]

When Sir Tristan left the castle saying King Arthur does not understand how others feel.[9] It was those words that began to trigger his insanity.[10] Sir Lancelot wishes to lessen the burden for his King, a wish that Guinevere also held. They conversed with each other and came to recognize each other as friends and rely on the other. It was then that Sir Lancelot became attracted to her. He learnt the King's secret from her.[9] Though the king was actually a woman, she had married in order to maintain the pretense that she was a man and the image of a stable royal family. Guinevere, in turn, willingly sacrificed her own life as a woman in order to preserve this ideal government.

When Lancelot and the queen began their affair, the Knight of the Lake considered fleeing Camelot with her, but his loyalty to Artoria and his sense of duty prevented him from doing so. When political enemies of the king learned about the affair, Agravain, who was working for Morgan le Fay, exposed the adulterous relationship to the public. The queen was ordered to be executed. Lancelot attempted to save her, killing several of his fellow knights including Gawain's siblings, Gareth and Gaheris, in the process.[11] He fled back to his own domain.

Lancelot, who was considered the perfect knight, Guinevere, the queen who had made her beloved betray his duty, and Artoria, the king who blamed herself for her loyal knight's despair, all suffered from the resulting fallout. Although Artoria forgave Lancelot's actions, Gawain still bore great hatred towards Lancelot for his betrayal and the death of his brothers.[11]

His disloyalty fractured the balance among the Knights of the Round Table. This incident eventually became the trigger of civil war and carnage, and the country shattered to pieces in the flames of war.[6] Lancelot, even after being excommunicated, wanted to participate in the Battle of Camlann to serve his King but Gawain hostilely rejected him, which helped result in the downfall of his King and country.[11]


When Lancelot heard the news of his King's death, Lancelot sank in despair and escaped through madness. Thus, when he became a Heroic Spirit, he was summoned as the insane Berserker.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Berserker is a robust man fully clad in pitch-black armor and a rustic helmet with a thinly carved slit displaying the ghastly glow of his eyes. The armor is the work of the delicate and nuanced workmanship of its smith's utmost effort, succeeding in granting it an air of formidability and a fine construction. It is a perfect armor that can be called neither exquisite nor crude, and it instead perfectly melds magnificence and functionality. It is carved with countless marks and scratches, the highlights of his various military exploits etched into it to add a touch of valor. It is an ideal battle outfit that all knights could not help but envy.[12]

During life, he was an ideal incarnation embodying the true face of a "knight." Having lost his distinguished dignity of the past, he has been thoroughly changed by his descent into madness. Mad Enhancement and his anger have corroded him into his pitch-black form. He has a blackened face, the visage of a living dead man who has lost everything to a curse. He had a beautiful visage capable of drawing the admiration of many women, but his hatred has made him gaunt and pallid like a phantom. The only part of him filled with light is his eyes that are filled with hatred.[12] He retains his normal appearance while not under the effects of Mad Enhancement.

Due to For Someone's Glory, the identifying marks of his armor are hidden, only revealing the fact that he is fully clad in armor without any opening. It shows no ornaments or polished luster like that of Saber or Gilgamesh. Blurring the characteristic features and clues on the lineage of the maker, it makes him look like a "shadow", a bottomless black darkness like Hell. Once the ability is removed, the armor is easily identified as that of Lancelot. He lacks the radiance of Heroic Spirits, the "shine" that is the expression of their pride. There is no sign of the honor of his legend, the essential element of Noble Phantasms. This makes him closer to Assassin in nature, holding a "negative surge" like a vengeful spirit rather than a Heroic Spirit.[13]


Personality[edit | edit source]

« I am the alienated, the ridiculed, the despised. No need to praise my name. No need to envy my body. I am the shadow under the radiance of heroic spirits. Birthed of the darkness of glorious legend. And so, I hate, I resent. Nourished by the sighs of the people precipitated within the darkness, people that curse the light. This is my disgrace. Because of her unsullied glory, I must forever be belittled. You are, the sacrifice. Good, give me more, your blood and flesh, your life. Let them ignite my hatred—!! »

(Berserker to Kariya)

As Berserker, his mind is under the effects of Mad Enhancement, limiting his rationality and ability to think. He gives off nothing but murderous intent and the thirst for blood, his deep hatred radiating out from him enough that he can easily be sensed even when he is hidden. He is able to battle with finesse due to his martial prowess, and he shows the ability to recognize that Lancer has been ordered to help him and take him as an ally for a short time. He still recognizes his King, instantly becoming hostile towards her and forgoing any orders in order to fight her.[7] He growls parts of her name, a moan full of malice hardly resembling human speech.

Lancelot was known to have extreme loyalty to his King during life as one of the people she considered to be a friend. She believes, even after their armies had clashed, that their hearts should still be the same, as a subject upholding the way of the knight and a king upholding the way of the knight. Saber is shocked in his ability to manifest as Berserker, that he who was the subject of people’s admiration could be reduced to that state. She cannot help but think their eternal partnership was nothing but a naive fantasy onto which she had clung upon seeing him in that state.

In one sense, he can be said to be a victim of Saber's righteousness.[10] Saber believes the root of it to stem from her hiding her gender. Seeking punishment for his actions, he was forgiven by the one person who he desired it from the most. The wretchedness he felt from that simple act was overwhelming for him. His guilt weighed down on him the more he adored his king, so his only salvation became to personally bring about her downfall. The atrocities he committed were of an insane and irritable young man, but ultimately driven by his overwhelming love for his king. He hated that she could remain an ideal king even after learning about the affair, and lamented how his king sacrificed herself for the sake of her country.

Role[edit | edit source]

Fate/Zero[edit | edit source]

Berserker in the Fate/Zero anime

Berserker is summoned by Kariya Matou in the 4th Holy Grail War. Zouken Matou, deciding that Kariya was too lacking as a Mage, compensated by forcing him to obtain a Servant from the most powerful of the seven classes - namely the Servant of Mad Enhancement, Berserker. Until his identity was revealed, he was known simply as the Black Knight (黒騎士, Kurokishi?).

During the War's first battle between the Servants, Lancer strikes Saber with Gáe Buidhe and attempts to finish her off, but their fight is interrupted by Iskandar. In the ensuing chaos, both Archer and Berserker arrive and engage one another in battle. They are evenly matched, with weapons of Archer's Gate of Babylon being caught and effectively wielded by Berserker to deflect any other weapons thrown at him.

Archer is forced by his Master to retreat, but Kariya, unable to control his Servant any longer, is unable to order Berserker to do the same. As a result, Berserker turns his attention to the injured Saber, but is stalled by Lancer's interference. However, Lancer's Master, Lord Kayneth Archibald El-Melloi, decides that Saber is the greater threat, and uses a Command Spell to coerce his Servant into aiding Berserker. This order is quickly retracted when Iskander interferes again, attacking Berserker from behind and threatening to team up with Saber. Both Berserker and Lancer retreat soon after.

Berserker controlling F-15 to use as his Noble Phantasm.

During the battle against Caster, Berserker takes control of an F-15 jet to use as his Noble Phantasm, and engages Archer in aerial combat at his Master's behest. Their fight is left unresolved when Berserker catches sight of Saber, and ignores Archer in favour of attacking the female Servant. He is defeated when Archer strikes him from behind with a barrage of Noble Phantasms. His Master, Kariya, is likewise defeated when he engages Tohsaka Tokiomi in combat.

Berserker is next sent out to kidnap Irisviel von Einzbern, in order to fulfill Kariya's end of a bargain with Kirei Kotomine. He uses his abilities to assume Rider's form, effectively fooling Saber and her Master into pursuing the wrong Servant. Saber engages the true Rider in battle, allowing Berserker to safely deliver Irisviel to his Master.

Lancelot under the Mad Enchantment

On the final day of the 4th Holy Grail War, Berserker engages Saber using submachine guns as his Noble Phantasm. (The anime depicts him with a Sniper Rifle and a Submachine Gun.) She manages to disarm him and damage his armour, but her killing blow is stopped short when Berserker deftly catches her blade between his hands. Saber realises that Berserker possesses knowledge of Excalibur's shape and length despite its invisibility, and deduces that he had known her when still alive. She demands that he reveal his true identity, to which Berserker responds by drawing his own sword, Arondight. His helmet finally shatters, revealing him to be Saber's old friend and greatest knight - Lancelot of the Lake.

Overcome by guilt of how she had contributed to his downfall in life, Saber loses her will to fight, and is brutally battered by Lancelot. She blocks one final blow from Berserker, expecting the next to be a killing strike, only to have him completely cease all movement. At the instant of his last blow, Berserker's Master, Kariya, had been completely drained of magical energy, effectively cutting off Berserker's source of power.

Berseker gets killed by Saber

Taking advantage of the situation, Saber drives Excalibur into the frozen Berserker, dealing him a mortal wound. She tearfully tells him that she had wished to win the Holy Grail to atone for her past mistakes, including her part in Lancelot's death.

Having regained his sanity, Berserker admits that he wished Saber had condemned him for his crimes, and demanded penance of him. Instead, her willingness to forgive him made it impossible for him to forgive himself. Berserker collapses into Saber's arms, sighing that, in the end, he would die in the bosom of his king, like a loyal and just knight. Unable to sustain his physical form any longer, Lancelot fades away and was the fifth servant to perish in the Fourth Grail War.

« You were the greatest amongst the kings. All who served you… believed thus. »

(Lancelot last comments to Saber:)

Einzbern Consultation Room[edit | edit source]

Lancelot appears in Einzbern Consultation Room, a metafiction segment analyzing the story, taking place after his death. He appears as his normal self rather than under Mad Enhancement, shocking Irisviel and Student No.0's expectations of the Berserker-class Servant. He is humble and well-mannered, ashamedly standing outside hesitating to enter due to the deeds he committed. Throughout the episode, he makes several remarks about his past and the Grail War, as well as more personal opinions (the most notable of which being that he prefers Saber over Guinievere). He also reveals that, upon his summoning, he came into contact with the Great Grail's corruption and thus he became familiar with the nature of the Grail.

Due to wishing for the Servants to be corrupted as a vessel for Angra Mainyu, Irisviel places a pot on his head to have him remember the darkness and slowly revert to Berserker. He tries to warn Student No.0 about Irisviel's true nature, but ends up reverting to Berserker and leaves in madness, only to be absorbed by the Grail.

Garden of Avalon[edit | edit source]

Lancelot recounts his and Guinevere's betrayal.[9]

Capsule Servant[edit | edit source]

Artoria's family in Capsule Servant.

There are two Lancelot in the game: the Berserker Capsule Servant, and the Lancelot in the world of Capsule Servant who is the son of Gawain and the brother of Master Artoria, Kay and Bedivere.

Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]

Orleans: The Wicked Dragon Hundred Years' War[edit | edit source]

He is allied with Jeanne Alter and Gilles. Sanson and Lancelot are teamed up against Ritsuka Fujimaru, Mash Kyrielight, Mozart, Jeanne and Marie Antoinette. His attacks are blocked by Mash. When Berserk Assassin orders Sanson and Lancelot to retreat, he ignores the order and specifically targets Jeanne because he mistook Jeanne as King Arthur. When he is defeated, he calls out King Arthur and states he is pleased with this outcome.[14]

Salomon: The Grand Time Temple[edit | edit source]

Lancelot along with the other "Orleans" Singularity Servants and assist the Chaldea against Navelius.[15]

Interlude[edit | edit source]

In his first interlude Knight of Owner, Lancelot is brought to have a picnic with Ritsuka and Mash. Though Romani is concerned due to Lancelot being Berserker, Mash says they're fine as he is an understandable Berserker. However, further conversation is interrupted when a monster attacks the group, but Mash is unable to use her shield due to everyone's lunches being on it. So Lancelot blocks the monster's attack with chopsticks, then he uses a log to fight the monsters with Mash.

In his second interlude For Someone's Glory, Lancelot joins Mash in a battle simulation (secretly at the highest parameters) as part of Romani's plan to remove his helmet. However, his combat skills overcome all of Romani's best efforts to get his helmet off. Frustrated by his failures Romani accidentally reveals aloud that everyone wanted to see Lancelot without his helmet. Complying with their request, Lancelot removes his helmet, but For Someone's Glory prevents them from seeing his face. Though they're disappointed, Ritsuka and Mash hope that Lancelot will one day reveal his face.

Fate/EXTELLA LINK[edit | edit source]

Lancelot has been Oraclized to be a member of Karl der Große's New Holy Empire.

First Route[edit | edit source]

If Hakuno's forces intercept Karl's forces at Mare Origio, Lancelot appears along with Darius III and Medusa.  He assumes the form of a Shadow Lancer, and hides among the others in effort to ambush the Hakuno's Servants.  He is eventually discovered, and forced to retreat for a time after being bested in combat. He returns later when Darius and Medusa have retreated, but he is defeated again.

Final Route[edit | edit source]

Lancelot is in charge in defense of Carolus Patricius when Hakuno's forces assault it. He repeats the tactic he did in the first route, but he's discovered and forced to retreat. He returns later, but he is defeated again.

Other appearances[edit | edit source]

In Type-Moon's April Fools' Day 2009, moon.cinemas.jp is a fake movie theater site listing a number of parody films. He was featured in Tank Man (戦車男, Sensha Otoko?), a parody film of Densha Otoko. Berserker plays the role of Sensha Otoko's Eirei Throne Channel internet friend with the nickname U to O (ウtuオ, U tu o?). He's a surprisingly nice guy but he is a man with a phobia of face to face and he uses his sketchbook to write his speech and thoughts. His role is expanded in TYPE-MOON 10th Anniversary Phantasm where he lives in the Matou family with Kariya and Sakura Matou. He and the other Eirei Throne Channel suggested Sensha Otoko to buy a Saber figure for El-Melloi Girl. When Kariya was stalking Aoi Tohsaka, Berserker calls him delusional and Kariya retaliate by throwing objects at Berserker. Kariya accidentally thrown an apple at Berserker's Saber Lily figure to which Berserker dived and saved it from falling. Berserker started to damage Kariya with his ability and they started to fight.

In Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA 3rei!!, Sakura installs Berserker Class Card. She was able to use Knight of Owner to steal Shirou's projected Noble Phantasm.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Lancelot was born with numerous abilities and aptitudes that took him beyond the realm of "high-spec" right into "completely overpowered".[6] "The Knight of the Lake" earned a huge reputation thanks to the great deeds he committed when he was alive, such as when he fought Gawain while empowered by the Sun for several hours until wounding him at nightfall.[11] Due to this, Lancelot is famed as the strongest of the Knights of the Round Table and as Gawain's equal.[3][6][11] As a Heroic Spirit, his most fitting Class is Saber,[16] however, as he often fell into madness due to troubles involving Guinevere, he has a particular compatibility with the Berserker class.[6] Although as a Berserker his battle prowess is inferior to his Saber counterpart due to some abilities and Noble Phantasms being sealed, his raw power is actually increased thanks to Mad Enhancement, which boosts his parameters by one rank in all stats besides Luck and Magical Energy.[1] In this form, Lancelot has an outrageous magical energy consumption which places a great strain on Kariya Matou to provide upkeep. While being of a normal class would have been better for Kariya, his increased parameters from being maddened are the only reason he is able to fight Gilgamesh as well as he manages.[17] Although Lancelot was a powerful enemy against all other teams fighting in the Fourth Holy Grail War, Diarmuid would have an advantage against him due to compatibility.[18]

Constantly under the effects of Mad Enhancement, he is difficult to control in battle. While he will follow Kariya's general orders of targeting Gilgamesh, he will easily ignore them if he has another target he wishes to attack. Due to his connection with Saber, he immediately attacks her at any available point, and the only way to completely stop him is with a Command Spell. He uses a great deal of magical energy every time he acts, and combined with Kariya's fragile state of health, he brings his Master closer to death with each battle.

He is used to the full extent of Saber's abilities, so he is able to utilize accurate and prudent battle tactics. He hunts her by continually giving chase without allowing her to retaliate so as to slowly strangle her. He remembers her sword, allowing him to predict the path of it even while it is sheathed in Invisible Air. He knows every detail from its shape to its length like the back of his hand.

Class Skills[edit | edit source]

Mad Enhancement (C Rank): Rank up for all parameters except Luck and Mana, but in exchange, Berserker can no longer think and speak properly.[1]

Personal Skills[edit | edit source]

Magic Resistance (E Rank): Possesses an amulet ring that rejects magical energy with a Magic Resistance value of D Rank, but it is ranked down due to Mad Enhancement.[1]
Protection of the Spirits (A Rank): A blessing from Elementals; the capacity to increase one's Luck in dangerous situations. Activation is limited to battlefields, where it is possible to perform feats of arms.[1]
Eternal Arms Mastery (A+ Rank): Mastership of combat arts has reached the point of being said to be unrivaled in one's era. By complete the merging of mind, body, and technique, it is possible to make use of full fighting skills even when under the influence of any sort of mental hindrance.[1][3] Though he attacks ferociously like a beast, befitting his class, all his attacks are accurate and precise enough to push even the strongest Servants back, and he can perform seemingly impossible maneuvers normally requiring complex thought purely on instinct, surprising onlookers due to his nature as a mad warrior.

Noble Phantasms[edit | edit source]

For Someone's Glory[edit | edit source]

While his armor has many defining marks that easily show his identity, he remains unidentified thanks to this Noble Phantasm, a black fog that engulfs him to prevent others from discerning his identity by obscuring his figure and keeping enemy Masters from reading his abilities. The true nature of the ability would allow him to disguise himself as other Heroic Spirits, but the only way to use it as Berserker is to force him with a Command Spell.

Knight of Owner[edit | edit source]

An Ability Noble Phantasm that implements the attributes of "one's own Noble Phantasm" to anything he puts his hands on. No matter what armament, no matter what kind of weapon becomes a pseudo-D Rank Noble Phantasm.[3] He displays subtle and flawless technique, showing grandeur in using unfamiliar Noble Phantasms in repeated offensive and defensive maneuvers. Noble Phantasm are meant to be weapons for the exclusive usage of their owners, so another Heroic Spirit taking hold of one should not be able to wield it correctly. Knight of Owner allows him to easily wield Gilgamesh's weapons from the Gate of Babylon, and he is able to advance against his opponent without being forced back a single step or being damaged in any way.

Arondight[edit | edit source]

Lancelot's true Noble Phantasm, a Divine Construct, and counterpart of Excalibur. In exchange for sealing For Someone's Glory and Knight of Owner, all of his parameters are increased by one rank and deals extra damage against dragon-attribute Heroic Spirits such as Artoria.[19] It allows him to unleash his true ability, showing skill with the sword completely incomparable to his previous level. While Saber is easily pushed back due to her having become unable to fight properly due to having an inner conflict for fighting her former friend, even her being able to fight against him normally may not be able to withstand the strong momentum behind his strikes. It multiplies his magical energy upkeep many times, finally reaching the limit of Kariya's Crest Worms and taking several hours worth of backup magical energy in ten seconds from his last charge.

Development[edit | edit source]

Lancelot first appearance in Fate/stay night [Realta Nua] soundtrack.

Lancelot first appearance in the illustration cover of Fate/stay night [Realta Nua] soundtrack.

The scene with Berserker fighting Gilgamesh with a fighter jet was planned from the start, so Gen Urobuchi worked towards making it. He especially wanted an "Itano Circus", a unwieldy and unnecessarily large amount of missiles that will not even hit properly based on Ichiro Itano's work in Macross, from Gilgamesh's Gate of Babylon.[20]

The anime version has heavily revised the Berserker's flashback scenes. Gen Urobuchi explains that the sudden change from the battle to a flashback would make the audience lose tension from the inconsistent timeline.[21]

Tomonori Sudo (Supervising Key Animation Director) explains that they had the plan of "there's a black haze" with Berserker. He wanted to clearly show the haze that was hiding Berserker's real body. Naturally they thought of animating Berserker and then pasting the haze on top, but then the haze wouldn't look three dimensional. In the end, pictures are flat, so even if you paste the haze on top, it wouldn't have any depth. That being the case, he figured that if they applied the haze to the 3DCG, maybe they could get that sense of depth. So first they animated Berserker, then swapped out for 3DCG, and applied the haze to that. It was a fairly tedious process, but he thought it would be best to show Berserker.[22] Masato Takizawa (Berserker 3DCG Supervisor) explains that he had to tweak parts like warping and altering the scale so Berserker's movements wouldn't look like stiff CG animation. Although there were a ton of difficult areas over the course of the series, he believe that all the hard work really can be seen on the screen and made for better visuals. He think that shows like this that are so beloved by the audience comes around once in a blue moon, so it is a real honor for him to be given the opportunity to take part in it.[7]

In episode 23 "The Sea at the End of the World", Berserker's movements are first drawn with keyframe animation, and then a 3DCG Berserker is animated to match, and finally, black mist is added over the top of that. After the mist clears, Berserker is fully animated using keyframe animation. Just like Kariya, the animation staff worked so hard they coughed up blood when they animated Berserker. Kei Tsunematsu was in charge of the storyboard for this episode.[7]

Creation and Conception[edit | edit source]

One of the early designs of Berserker.

Berserker's armor was designed by Hirokazu Koyama. He was told to give Berserker the appearance of a dark hero with a "bucket with a slit in it" for the helmet. He gave him a massive outer appearance, and utilized various parts similar to Saber's armor to assemble it. Only the slit in the helmet remained from the original design order, and just from the outline of the head, it is a rather simple silhouette that still manages to carry the impression of the armor. Within the discarded designs, there was a period where the slit featured a more eye-like design.

His original feel for the character was one of a great gap between his thin, weak looking appearance and amazing power and speed. The design of the back of the armor was added on afterwards, but fit in unexpectedly well. Takashi Takeuchi was surprised Koyama made such a complex design from the simple instruction of a "Bucket Helmet", and thought "This sort of design must be pretty valuable." Gen Urobuchi also wondered how such a design would end up looking good, imagining a "slit-like eyepiece" like what was used in the final design.

Takeuchi designed Lancelot's face easily, thinking "This guy is so unlucky!" while drawing him. The difference in his facial features between his living form and that under Mad Enhancement is like the difference between an ibis and an amoeba. The expression Lancelot makes next to Bedivere, like that of someone being punished for doing something wrong, makes Takeuchi tear up when looking at it. Urobuchi feels Lancelot is more beautiful as a handsome man with a shady past rather than an unrestrained playboy.[4]

Atsuhi Ikariya was in charge of the character design for the anime version. He drew Berserker like a mecha, so he used lots of shadows and lines and tried to give a sense of the metal of the armour.[7]

Ryōtarō Okiayu (Voice actor of Berserker) talks how it was surprisingly hard to pick out lines in the scripts as his lines were mostly just screaming "Aaaah!". When he was recording "Sound Drama," he was told that the "Aaaah!" howl was him trying to shout "Arthur", but his hatred is so strong that he can't get the word out. He thinks it is hard to pick up on that when he first appears, but he made a point of going "Aaaah!" after they started the second season. He was really happy that he got to deliver some proper lines in the last two episodes.[7]

Nasu Kinoko is the scenario writer for his character.[2]

Reception[edit | edit source]

Okiayu said from a visual standpoint, the staff of Ufotable has really pulled out all stops on Berserker. When he heard that they could only finish a handful of cuts in a day, he was shocked at the craftsmanship. Since the visuals weren't done when he was recording, he only did growls and howls for timing. Okiayu said that a lot of people didn't know that he was playing Berserker in the first season because he's always howling.[7]

Shingaki Tarusuke (Voice actor of Kariya Matou) stated that every scene featured Berserker is a classic scene.[7]

    Profile
    The "Knight of the Lake", admired as the strongest even among the Knights of the Round Table.
    His adulterous love with Queen Guinevere invited the ruin of Camelot - surely, an individual who is the negative symbol of Arthurian Legends.

    Level 1 Bond
    Height/Weight: 191cm・81kg
    Source: Arthurian Legends
    Region: England
    Alignment: Lawful Mad  Gender: Male
    Once the greatest knight; but, consequentially, his error was too severe.

    Level 2 Bond
    Having lost his parents as a child, he was raise by the fairy of the lake Nimue and thus gained the alias "Knight of the Lake".
    Upon reaching adulthood, he crossed over to the Isle of Britain and, after meeting with King Arthur, joined the Knights of the Round Table. It has been said that none could compare to his valor and chivalric mentality.

    Level 3 Bond
    For him to surrender himself to his feelings towards Queen Guinevere was an inevitable outcome for his chivalry. If his treachery towards the king was promptly met with ruin, he would probably have been saved. However, because his valor was peerless, this situation brought about the worst possible outcome.

    Level 4 Bond
    "A Knight Does Not Die Empty-Handed"
    Rank: A  Type: Anti-Unit
    Knight of Honor.
    An Ability Noble Phantasm that implements the attributes of "one's own Noble Phantasm" to anything he puts his hands on. No matter what armament, no matter what kind of weapon becomes a pseudo-Noble Phantasm equivalent to D Rank.

    Level 5 Bond

    • Eternal Arms Mastership: A+

    Martial dexterity that reached the point of being boasted as peerless in a given era. By complete unification of heart, technique and physique, it is possible to display one's former combat power even while under the influence of any kind of mental restriction.

    Interlude
    The tenacity of a knight who feel in the depths of regret despite being bathed by too much honors; especially due the feelings of love and hate pointed towards the King and the Queen that can never reach an answer, he continues to be imprisoned by eternal madness.
    The black knight continues to fight, seeking the sole meeting that might appease his agony.

    Koyama's comment
    I accepted an order that said to make him look like a dark hero and settled on giving him a massive outer appearance. It runs counter to expectations, but if you look at it closely, you should see that it is assembled from parts that are similar to Saber's armor. It is so complex that it would be hard to make a video game sprite, huh? If you could do it, make it 3-D from now on. Make it look gloriously three dimensional and whatnot. [Koyama]

    Koyama's comment
    The order was for a bucket with a slit in it, but right now only the slit remains. From the head alone, it is a rather simple silhouette, but it still carries an impression of the armor. In the discarded designs, there was also a phase where the design was more eye-like. [Koyama]

    Koyama's comment
    Initially, I imagined him as a character that had a great gap between his thin, weak-looking appearance and amazing power and speed. The black deign was tacked on later, but fit unexpectedly smoothly. Remember. the tentacles lie flat. [Koyama]

    Initial design
    I was taught the heel looks like it's floating a little.

    Comment for Lancelot
    Takeuchi: Koyama was responsible for the armor's design. Because he drew it in a very complex form, I thought it was something like "This sort of design picture must be pretty valuable." I did not think he would develop so much from the original instruction of "Bucket Helmet"! (laugh)
    Urobuchi: That was a pretty irresponsible order, hu-uh? I kept pondering how the heck I would make a bucket helmet look cool!? I surely really wanted it to be a "slit-like eyepiece", in the end. And then, the current form.
    Takeuchi: I finished the design for the face with no trouble at all. I kept on thinking "This guy is so unlucky!" while drawing him.
    Urobuchi:I thought Lance would be more beautiful as a handsome man with a shady past than an unrestrained playboy.

    Misc text:

    Takeuchi's comment
    Lancelot during the era of the Knights of the Round Table. I think you wouldn't know it because the picture was trimmed, but on the jacket of the PS2 Fate soundtrack, Lancelot is actually standing across from Bedivere. His expression, like he's being punished for doing something wrong, makes me tear up. [Takeuchi]

    Sir Lancelot [Servant]
    The "Knight of the Lake", famed as the strongest of the Knights of the Round Table.
    His illicit love affair with Queen Guinevere drove Camelot down the road to ruin, tarnishing his legacy in the legends of King Arthur.
    As he often fell into madness due to troubles involving Guinevere, he has a particular compatibility with the Berserker class. In a lot of ways, he's just a guy who pushed himself too hard.
    He was born with numerous abilities and aptitudes that take him beyond the realm of "high-spec" right into "completely overpowered", and none of them were any help at all in solving his problems. But while I could sort of sympathize with him, at the same time I couldn't help but feel a little bit of black joy that so many terrible things happened to such a handsome and talented person. But then the girls in class just looked at me in disdain, like, "Eww, so jealous, gross!" while screaming in shrill voices about how cool Lance-sama is, and… ahem. Sorry, I'm getting off track here.
    Anyway, if he and King Arthur had just been able to have an all-out brawl to satisfaction on a sandy beach under the evening sun, so many tragedies might have been avoided. Well, there's no guarantee, of course, but the fact remains that whatever else happened that was the one thing that Lancelot's nature never let him do. He even tried going insane to change that part about himself, but just ended up causing the way-too-serious Artoria to misunderstand a lot of things instead. Really, it makes me wonder if his origin is "being a nuisance" or something.

    円卓の騎士の中でも最強と謳われた『湖の騎士』
    王妃ギネヴィアとの不倫の恋がキャメロットを破滅にまで導いた、まさしくアーサー王伝説の負の象徴たる人物。
    ギネヴィアを巡る葛藤で狂気に陥ったことも多々あり、バーサーカーのクラスとはそれなりに相性が良い。色々な意味で無理して頑張りすぎた人。
    数々の才能と素質においてハイスペックどころか厨スペックを生まれ持っておきながら、その全てが彼の葛藤を打破する上で何の役にも立たなかったというのは、同情の念を抱きつつも「できるイケメンのくせしてナニ勝ち組に背ェ向けて悲劇ぶってんだコラ舐めてんのか?」とドス黒い感情を禁じ得ない。だがそんな否モテ思考をクラスの女子たちは「嫌だわ~嫉妬だわ~キモッ!」と白眼視しつつ「きゃーランス様カッコイイ!」と黄色い声を張り上げるのであった。……ごめん話が大きく逸れた。
    いっそアーサー王とは夕陽の砂浜で気が済むまで殴り合いでもしていれば数々の悲劇が回避できた……かどうかは定かでないが、ランスロットの性格でほどう転んでもそんなこと出来なかったことだけは事実。そんな自分を変えたいと一念発起で狂化してみたはいいものの、今度は逆に生真面目すぎるアルトリアに余計な誤解をさせてしまう結果となったわけで、さしずめランスロットの持つ起源は『傍迷惑』とでもいったところだろうか。

    Berserker's Master.
    Second oldest son of the Matou family, one of the three founding Mage familes.
    Although his Magecraft aptitude was higher than his brother's, he hated the vile nature of the Matou family's magic. To save Sakura, the daughter of Aoi Tohsaka, he agrees to participate in the HolyGrail War. As a side effect of the Crest Worms, half his body is twisted and distorted. Atsushi Ikariya was in charge of the character design for the anime version.

    Berserker
    A mad knight Heroic Spirit who is clad in black armor. The "Berserk" affinity was added to him, as he is unable to speak, and he refuses to obey his Master's instruction. His abilities include For Someone's Else's Glory, which conceal his own abilities, and Knight of Honor, which allows him to turn anything into a Noble Phantasm. He demonstrates an unnatural fixation on Saber. Atsushi Ikariya was in charge of the character design for the anime version.

    Worms
    The Matou family uses Worms in their Magecraft. In combat, they can be summoned and employed at will. There are various kinds, including the flesh-eating Blade Wing Worms that Kariya employs, and the Crest Worms that crawl around the Worm Pit.

    Zouken Matou
    Head of the Matou family. After repeatedly extending his life, this Mage is already not quite human. He is well versed in all things related to the Holy Grail, and gives Kariya Crest Worms. He observes the proceedings of the Holy Grail War from a distance.

    Comment
    Berserker 3DCG Supervisor Masato Takizawa
    With Berserker's movements, I tweaked things like warping the parts and altering the scale so that it wouldn't look like stiff CG animation. Although there were a ton of difficult areas over the course of the series, I believe that all the hard work really can be seen on the screen and made for better visuals. I think that shows like this that are so beloved by the audience comes around once in a blue moon, so it's a real honor to have given the opportunity to take part in it.

    Lancelot
    A knight of the Round Table who served Arthur (Artoria). He falls in love with King Arthur's wife, Guinevere, and this dishonor brings about the fall of Britain. Also, in the anime, he is drawn with keyframe animation after his face is revealed. Because his complex armor was bring drawn by hand, it involved huge amounts of time and effort.

  8. [v] Fate/Zero material - Encyclopedia: Diarmuid Ua Duibhne [Servant], p.100

    Diarmuid Ua Duibhne [Servant]
    The Lancer class Servant of the Fourth Holy Grail War, summoned by Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald. A hero of the Fianna, spoken of in Irish mythology. The story of his tragic love affair with Grainne would later become the model for the story of Lancelot and Guinevere. It's no wonder that the Berserker of the Fourth Holy Grail War has such bad compatibility with him!
    In battle, he wields two Noble Phantasms: the Crimson Rose of Exorcism (Gae Dearg) which temporarily nullifies the effects of magical energy, and the Yellow Rose of Mortality (Gae Buidhe) which inflicts cursed wounds that cannot be healed by any means.
    His basic parameters are not particularly high, but he excels at using battle tactics designed to trip up enemies stronger than himself. In particular, he is the natural enemy of those Heroic Spirits which rely on the powers of their Noble Phantasms to fight. Depending on his strategy, it's even possible that he could have won the entire Fourth Holy Grail War (or suffer a humiliating defeat at the hands of Assassin).
    Out of all the Servants in the fourth war, he had the second-worst compatibility with his Master. Though, if his very first opponent had been anybody besides Saber, he might have been able to fight in a way more in line with his Master's expectations. For you see, it was Saber's serene beauty and grace which kindled the flames of chivalry within his heart. Also, while he was summoned as a Lancer this time, and therefore carried the twin demonic spears Gae Dearg and Gae Buidhe, his legends also speak of a pair of demonic swords: Moralltach and Beagalltach. So, there was actually a decent chance he could have been summoned as a Saber. Or rather, that's probably what Kayneth was hoping for…

    ディルムッド・オディナ【サーヴアント】
    第4次聖杯戦争におけるランサーのサーヴァント。ケイネス・エルメロイ・アーチボルトに召喚され契約する。ケルト神話に語り継がれるフィオナ騎士団の英雄。彼とブラニア姫との悲恋の物語は、後のランスロットとギネヴィアの物語のモデルになったともされている。そりゃ~4thパーサーカーが苦手とするのも無理はない。
    魔力の効果を瞬間的に無効化する破魔の紅薔薇(ゲイ・ジャルグ)、いかなる手段でも回復不可能な呪いの傷を負わせる必滅の黄薔薇(ゲイ・ボウ)という二倍の宝具を操る。
    基本能力はさほど高くはないが、優位に立った敵の足許を掬う戦術に長けたサーヴァント。とりわけ宝具能力を頼みとする英霊にとっては天敵とも言える。戦略の立て方次第では、確実に第四次聖杯戦争を征していた(もしくはアサシン相手にあっさり不覚をとっていた)と思われる。
    第四次でマスターに恵まれなかったサーヴァント第二位。もっとも最初に戦ったのがセイバーでなければ、まだしも多少は従容にマスターの意向を汲んだ戦い方をしていたかもしれない。彼の胸に眠っていた騎士道精神に火を点けてしまったのは、セイバーのあまりに清澄すぎる器量であったのだ。
    今回、ランサーのクラスを得たディルムッドは、魔槍ゲイ・ジャルグとゲイ・ボウを携える槍兵として具現化したが、彼の伝承にはモラルタ、ベガルタという2本の魔剣も語り継がれており、セイバーのクラスで召喚される可能性も充分にあった。むしろケイネスはそちらを期待していたのかもしれない。

    01 - Excalibur Galatine: The Resurrected Sword of Victory
    The sword of Sir Gawain and the sister sword to Excalibur. It is said that like Excalibur, Galatine once belonged to the Lady of the Lake. However, its legend have been overshadowed by its more famous counterpart, and therefore very few people know of its true significance.

    Another difference is the while Excalibur was said to absorb light radiated from the Earth, Galatine reflected the warming rays of the Sun.

    02 - Knight of the Sun
    While King Arthur was ruled by the movement of Artemis, the goddess of the moon, Sir Gawain drew his strength as a knight from the sun.
    It is said that his power are at their greatest when the sun is at its zenith.

    03 - Excalibur
    Arthur, said to be the mightiest of all the kings to rule Britain, is believed to have ruled sometime in the fifth or sixth century.

    The sword that is said to have proclaimed his rule was bestowed upon him by the Elemental known in legends as the Lady of the Lake. The entire episode was passed in the stories collectively known as "King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table."

    五世紀~六世紀に実在したとされるイギリスの王・アーサー。
    彼を主題にした物語、「アーサー王と円卓の騎士」に登場する聖剣。

    Numeral of the Saint [EX]
    A condition unique to Sir Gawain's existence. During the hours between 9am and 12pm and those between 3pm and sunset, all of his powers increase by a factor of three. This was related to the ancient belief that numeral "3" was the sacred number of the Celtic gods.

    Details

    01 - Character Background
    One of the major knights mentioned in the Arthurian legends and often thought to be King Arthur's nephew.

    A knight said to be equal of Sir Lancelot, Gawain was frequently at odds with Lancelot due to his slaying of both of Gawain's brothers. Although pure of heart and loyal beyond question, it was Gawain's all-consuming hatred that not only led to him being stripped of his knighthood, but also led to the downfall of King Arthur himself.

    Although his hostility inevitably led to his death at the hands of Sir Lancelot, he realized that it was his own lack of virtue that led to Sir Lancelot's betrayal and the defeat of King Arthur at the battle of Camlann Hill.

    Up until his death, Sir Gawain was considered a paragon of knighthood; chivalrous, loyal, and gallant. Even as King Arthur became a legend, Gawain was content to stay in the background, doing his duty regardless of whether his efforts were acknowledged or not. In reward for his gallantry and loyalty to Arthur, as well as his eventual forgiveness of Sir Lancelot, Gawain was resurrected as a Legendary Soul and, freed from the sins of the past, has once again reclaimed his role as the "Knight of the Sun."

    02 - "The White Knight of the Round Table."
    The White Knight of the Round Table.

    Widely considered to be equal of King Arthur by many and the wielder of the lesser-known holy sword Galatine, Sir Gawain was fiercely loyal to the king, or more accurately, the King's station. Unlike Sir Bedivere, a trusted friend of Arthur's who wished only that he would find peace and contentment, Gawain's only concern was that Arthur maintain the throne of Britain.

    If King Arthur was seen as the personification of the moon, then Sir Gawain was the harbinger of the sun. He was frequently compared with Arthur, although Gawain himself ignored these comparisons and devoted himself to serving his king to the best of his abilities. Though loyal to the end, his irrational hatred of Sir Lancelot proved to be his and Arthur's undoing.

    Though Arthur eventually forgave his wayward knight's transgressions, Sir Gawain could not find it within himself to do the same until the very last moments of his life and only after being stripped of his knighthood, excommunicated from the church, and causing the downfall of his sovereign king.

    With his dying breath, he swore that if he was ever given a second chance at life, he'd support his king, no matter what. Upon being reincarnated as a Servant, Gawain devotes himself completely to the goals of his Master and by doing so hopes to gain absolution for the sins of the past.

    01 - 人物背景
    「アーサー王伝説」に登場する円卓の騎士の一人。
    アーサー王の甥でもある。
    アーサー王の片腕と称されたランスロット卿に並ぶ騎士だったが、兄弟をランスロットに殺された事をどうしても忘れられず、彼とは相容れなかった。
    高潔な人格、理想の若武者であったが故に、肉親への上も人一倍だったのだろう。
    しかし、その怨恨がガウェイン卿の騎士としての格を落とすばかりか、最後には王の没落にまで繋がってしまった。

    ガウェイン卿はアーサー王最後の戦いであるカムランの丘で、ランスロット卿に受けた古傷を敵に打たれ死亡したとされる。
    その死の淵で、自らの怨恨が王の破滅を招いたのだと悔い、ランスロット卿への私怨も、彼の不忠さえも、自らの不徳からと受け入れた。

    そも、ガウェイン卿はランスロット卿への憎しみさえなければ完全な騎士である。
    相手を軽んじる事も侮辱する事もなく、相手が力量不足であってもその戦意、覚悟をくみ取り、礼節をもって相対した。
    王の前では影に徹し、ひとたび号令が下れば颯爽と戦場に赴き、涼やかな笑顔で勝利する―――まさに理想の騎士と言える。

    その在り方は、こうして英霊になる事で蘇った。
    多くの迷いから解き放たれたガウェイン卿は文字通り“太陽の騎士”として、本来の姿を取り戻したのである。

    02 - 円卓の白騎士
    円卓の騎士。
    アーサー王の影武者とも言われた、もう一人の聖剣の使い手である。
    しかし、アーサー王を妄信的に崇拝しているが故、王の苦悩を知ることはなかった。
    アーサー王の最期を看取ったヴェデヴィエールもガウェイン卿と同じ忠節の騎士だが、ヴェデヴィエールは王の人間としての幸福を心の底で願い、ガウェイン卿は王の王としての活躍を願ったのだろう。

              ◆

    アーサー王が夜、月の象徴であるのに対し、ガウェイン卿は昼、太陽を背負っている。
    その姿も見目麗しい事もあり、王城キャメロットではアーサー王の影武者、ないし王が倒れた後の代理候補の一人であった。
    そんな周囲からの評価も意に介さず、ガウェイン卿はあくまでアーサー王の右腕であり続けた。
    そんな彼の最大の後悔はランスロット卿との諍いである。

    「ランスロット卿に兄弟を殺されたばかりか、あの黒騎士は王さえ裏切った。王の妻を拐かしたのだ。許せるはずがあろうか」

    だが、最終的にアーサー王はランスロット卿を許す。
    全ては余が悪かったと。
    だが、ガウェイン卿はランスロット卿の裏切りを許せず、最後まで彼と敵対してしまった。
    破門されながらもカムランの丘にはせ参じようとするランスロット卿をガウェイン卿は拒み続け、結果的に、彼は王を戦死させ、自らも戦死してしまう。

    その結果から、英霊としてのガウェインは“王の補佐に徹する”事を絶対の使命として捉えているようだ。
    カムランの丘で自戒するアーサー王のように、ガウェイン卿も死の淵で叫んだのだ。
    自身の激情が王を死に誘った。

    「―――もし次があるのなら。
    まだ挽回する機会が、二度目の生があるのなら、今度こそ、自らの全てを王に捧げるよう―――」

              ◆

    その誓いを胸にサーヴァント化した彼は、生前の悔い、過ちを正すため、より完成された「騎士」として主人に仕えた。

    全てはひとりの、孤独な王の礎にならんがために。

  17. [v] Fate/Zero material - Encyclopedia: Matou Kariya [Person's name], p.103-104

    Kariya Matou [Person's name]
    The little brother of Matou Shinji's father, Byakuya.
    The gutsiest, most rebellious person in the history of the Matou family – against that monstrous old man, just standing up to him and running away was a heroic act of valor. Of course, from Zouken's point of view, no matter how much better Kariya's magic circuits were than his older brother's, they weren't worth the effort it would take to break his will and train him into a proper family head. In fact, at that point he had probably already decided that he had no choice but to bet everything on Byakuya conceiving an heir that would turn everything around. Unfortunately, in the end his longshot gamble backfired spectacularly, and instead of a miracle that would save his lineage, he got Shinji.
    By the way, even Kariya's childhood friendship with Aoi was set up by Zouken, who had become aware of the Zenjou family's excellent hereditary trait long before the Tohsaka. However, due to Kariya turning his back on sorcery and getting cockblocked by Tokiomi, the old man's plans once more came to nothing.
    …Well, Kariya bringing his beloved Aoi back to some horrid worm pit was never going to happen in the first place. Maybe if the Matou sorcery was a little more normal, he would have been willing to obediently accept his inheritance and become Tokiomi's rival for Aoi's affections.
    For a makeshift magus, Kariya's suitability as a Master was exceptional. The fact that he was able to endure the maddened Lancelot's outrageous magical energy consumption for as long as he did is a feat truly deserving of praise. While he might have been better off if Zouken hadn't punished him by forcing him to summon a Berserker, well… I hate to say it, but the only reason Lancelot was able to fight Gilgamesh as well as he did was due to the parameter boost from being maddened. And given the single-minded devotion with which Kariya was pursuing Tokiomi, there's no way you could expect him to have the prudence to avoid that powerhouse team and survive to the very end. When all's said and done, as long as he carried the Matou spirit of putting grudges before everything else, he was probably doomed to failure no matter what.

    間桐雁夜【人名】
    間桐慎二の父、鶴野の弟。
    歴代問桐の一族において屈指のガッツと反骨精神を備えた男。あの怪物爺を相手にして、一度は家督の継承を拒み出奔したというだけでも快挙である。とはいえ臓硯からしてみれば、いかに雁夜の魔術回路が長男よりマシなものだったにせよ、自由意志を奪ってまで次代頭首に仕立て上げるほどの手間には釣り合わない程度の素養だった、というのが実際のところであり、その時点では鶴野が妻に孕ませる次代の子供に一発逆転の万馬券を賭けるべし、という判断だったのだろうだが結果、生まれた慎二はあの体たらくで、お爺ちゃんのギャンブルは見事に裏口に出たのである。
    幼少期から禅城家と交流を持ち、葵と幼馴染みになったのも、実は臓硯のセッティングである。間桐は遠坂より先に禅城家の優秀な遺伝特質に気付いていたわけだが、雁夜が魔道そのものを嫌悪したことと、横から割り込んだ時臣による葵ラブハート狙い撃ちによって、やっぱり爺の企ては水泡に帰したのであった。
    まぁ雁夜としては愛しい葵を蟲蔵に連れ込むなんて断固NGであっただろうし、せめてもう少し間桐の魔術形態がまともなものであったなら、彼も大人しく継承者になって時臣と恋の鞘当てを演じる気になったかもしれない。
    しかし俄仕立ての魔術師としては雁夜のマスター適正は大したもので、狂化ランスロットの法外な魔力消費にあそこまで耐え抜いたことは賞賛にすら値する。そもそも臓硯が雁夜への制裁などという余計な遊び心をおこさず、狂化を強要したりしなはれ、ば良かったのに……なんて悔やむにしても、やはりランスロットがギルガメッシュを相手にあそこまで健闘できたのは狂化による能力増幅の賜物だったわけで、おそらく脇目もふらずに時臣に突っかかっていったであろう雁夜には、強豪を避けて勝ち残るなどという思慮を期待するわけにもいかず……結局のところ、恨み節を万事に優先させてしまう間桐スピリットある限り、敗北は必定だったのだろう。

  18. [v] Fate/Zero material - Encyclopedia: Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald [Person's name], p.095

    Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald [Person's name]
    Kayneth demonstrated genius level talent during his time as a student. He was the youngest lecturer to grace the podium of the Department of Evocation in its history. His skills were not only in research, but also politics. Due to his great lineage, he had extensive connections. He was expected to form the greatest faction in the Clock Tower.
    He did not participate in the Holy Grail War due to necessity or duress, it was merely to add a splash of "martial prowess" to his life's story. That was it. Although he did not severely underestimate the Three Founding Houses, he did boast that Lord El-Melloi could overwhelm them by skills alone.
    The reason Kayneth brought many dangerous Mystic Code had nothing to do with research, but for entertainment value. Kayneth had talents not only in Spirit Evocation, but also in many fields of magecraft. He was really a man of many talents like Gennai Hiraga or Cao Cao.
    Kayneth even considered the Heroic Spirits ---- Servants, to be part of his stock of Mystic Codes. Because he never acknowledged the humanity of Servants, he did not understand Diarmuid's loyalty even until the very end. As a result, he effectively lost through self-destruction.
    However, Diarmuid was not choosey of his Master, he would acknowledge anyone who would accept his loyalty. As a result, he did not understand Kayneth as a person either. If Diarmuid really appreciated Kayneth's talents and experience, then Kayneth would have treated him with a much softer attitude.
    To Kayneth, unable to bond with his Servant was the second most unfortunate event at the worst. The most unfortunate event by far was encountering Emiya Kiritsugu. Although as a mage, Kayneth won by an enormous margin, as a killer, he was miles behind Kiritsugu. It was inevitable that Kayneth would lose in a melee such as the Holy Grail War. Because of Kayneth's sudden death, his many valuable research accumulated in the Clock Tower was unorganized and left unattended. Although they were almost lost, the most useless formal student suddenly appeared to save the day. He had an unusual talent of "could not put magecraft to practice, but ingenious in the reinterpretation of theories and classification of systems". This student eventually compiled a tome named "Lord Kayneth's Encyclopedia of Arcane Secrets", which laid the foundation for the flourishing of House El-Melloi and its descendants.
    By the way, in the Fourth Holy Grail War, the following strategy would insure the absolute victory of Team Lancer:

    • Kayneth must not let his Servant recognize such things as honour on the battle field or knights' pride. He must let Diarmuid realize that the Holy Grail War was merely dirty chores that needed to be done.
    • In order to fulfill the previous item, Kayneth must avoid any contact between Diarmuid and Saber with his best effort.
    • In combat, Kayneth must prioritize securing an exit. In a battle, missions would be considered accomplished if Diarmuid scored one hit with Gae Buidhe. Repeat this tactic, and exhaust all hostile teams.
    • Capitalize on Team Berserker. Team Berserker was a powerful enemy against all other teams, but Lancer had an advantage due to compatibility. It would be optimal to let Berserker destroy the other teams and reach the finale. He could then be defeated at that point.

    ケイネス・エルメロイ・アーチボルト【人名】
    学生時代から神童と謳われるほどの才能の閃きを見せ、降霊学科では最年少で講師の座に着く。学究の才能ばかりでなく政治的手腕も巧みで、家門の良さ故に有力なコネも大勢。ゆくゆくは時計塔内の最大派閥を形成するものと嘱望されていた。
    彼が聖杯戦争に参加する理由には必ずしも切迫したものがあったわはではなく、自らの経歴の中に「武功」として評価される逸話も欲しくなった、という程度のものでしかない。『始まりの御三家』の必死ぶりを侮っていたわはではなかろうが、それを才覚のみて圧倒できてこそのロード・エルメロイ、という自負があったのだろう。
    どちらかといえば研究畑の人間だったにもかかわらず、おそろしく剣呑な礼装を準備していたのは、単純に趣味の産物である。彼は降霊術のみなら、ず様々なジャンルの魔術で才能を見せ、その出鱈目な多才ぶりは平賀源内か曹操か、という有様であった。
    英霊を使役するサーヴァントという存在すらも、彼にとっては数ある礼装の一つ、程度の認識でしかなかったのだろう。英霊の人格というものを認める気が毛頭なかったが故に、ディルムッドの忠義に打しても最後まで理解を示すことができず、結果として自滅も同然の敗退を遂げる。
    とはいえ実のところディルムッドも、マスターとして自分の忠義を受け正めてくれる相手なら誰でも良かった節があり、ケイネスその人の人柄と向き合っての相互埋解を怠っていたのは事実である。もし板にディルムッドが、ケイネスの才能と経歴にメロメロになるほど感服した上で忠誠を誓っていたならば、ケイネスとてもうちょっと柔らかい接し方をしたんじゃなかろうか。
    まあ、サーヴァントと信頼関係を築けなかったことは、ケイネスにとって二番目の不運に過ぎず、ブッチギリに一番の不運は、衛宮切嗣と巡り会ってしまったことに尽きる。魔術師としての位階は切嗣よりはるかに勝りながらも、殺人者としては切嗣に及ぶべくもなく、聖杯戦争という殺し合いにおいての敗退は必定であった。ケイネスの突然の死によって、彼が時計塔において積み重ねてきた多くの貴重な研究は未整理のまま放置され、あやうくその成果は散逸してしまうところだったのだが、いちばん無能だった一人の元弟子が、『魔術の実践はからきしなのに、理論の再解釈と系統分類は天才的』という妙な才覚を持ち合わせていたことで、最終的には『ロード・ケイネス秘術大全』という一冊の魔道書として編纂され、すべての秘術はアーチボルト家の管理上へと戻されて、後の家門の繁栄を盤石のものとした。
    ちなみに第4次聖杯戦争におけるランサーチームの必勝パターンは……
    • サーブァントに戦場の誉れとか騎士の誇りだとかを意識させない。聖杯戦争は汚れ仕事の処理業務だと常に諦観させておく。
    • 前述の条件を満たすために、セィバーとの接触は極力避けること。
    • 戦闘においては常に退路の碓保を最優先し、ゲイボウを一撃当てたら目的達成とみなし撤退する。これを繰り返し、各敵対チームの消耗を待つ。
    • バーサーカーチームを活用する。他サーヴァントに対しては強敵でありながらランサーだけが相性関係で優位に立てる相手なので、可能であればバーサーカーを最終局面まで生存させて他チームの殲滅を任せ、しかる後に討ち取るのが望ましい。

    About Berserker Side
    Nasu: But, I was moved to tears by that last conversation with Lancelot. Nobody was at fault… Nobody was to blame!
    Urobuchi: I think that’s the most heartbreaking thing about it, though.
    Nasu: Ah, it really is.
    Urobuchi: The scene would have been totally ruined if Alexander had barged in, huh?
    Nasu: That’s Dead Weight Alex for you, lol
     He’d start his lecture with something like “Well, be that as it may…”.
    Urobuchi: Sounds like something out of Hana no Keiji.
    Nasu: Then, “It’s all your fault!” “And also, it’s your fault too!”
     “So, become my subordinates!”
    Urobuchi: That’s exactly what he’d say!
    Nasu: Of course, their response would be “What the hell is this guy going on about!?"
    Urobuchi: Right, it’d be a total negotiation failure.
    'Nasu: And Alex would just tilt his head to the side and wonder, “Hmm, did things go poorly?”
    Anyway, about Berserker’s ridiculous Noble Phantasm… were you aiming at “that” from the start? That… f i g h t e r j e t.
    Urobuchi: Yup! Basically, I really, really wanted to fight Gil with a fighter jet. I worked toward it with all my heart and soul!
    Nasu: We should call you Yagami Gen. ”Just as planned!”
    Urobuchi: I thought the Gate of Babylon would be perfect for an Itano Circus.
    Nasu: Whoosh! The swords are homing in! Ornamental swords, holy swords, demonic swords, shitty knockoff swords!
    Urobuchi: Especially that last one! That’s the heart of the Itano Theory.
    Nasu: Because they won’t hit!
    Urobuchi: Filling up the screen with missiles that won’t home properly is very important.
    Nasu: Right, right.
    Urobuchi: It truly is profound, the Itano Circus.
    Nasu: But, a motorcycle that flies through the sky is going too far!
    Right? Is it really okay, including that Braiger kind of thing?
    Urobuchi: What? Of course it flies. Because it’s a motorcycle. Also, you’re thinking of Baxinger.
    Nasu: It can turn into a bazooka, too, right? It can do anything, this motorcycle. I bet it even turns into a battleship.
    Urobuchi: If it was Gil’s Noble Phantasm motorcycle that probably wouldn’t be too far off.
    Nasu: It’d be a suuuuper-awesome Itansha, lol
    Urobuchi: You know… it might be too extreme, but… what if we made it a Super Cub?
    Nasu: Ah, now THAT’S a Noble Phantasm. Definitely.
    Takeuchi: A golden Super Cub.
    Nasu: I waaaant one!
    It’s the very model of majesty and grace!
    Urobuchi: Gil making his appearance on that… it would be just like WWE SmackDown.
    Nasu: Circling the ring at 3 kph, lol
    While the spectators go wild.
    Takeuchi: Ahh… I can almost see it, that armored figure straddling the bike.
    Nasu: Wow, everybody really loves Gil, huh?

  21. [v] Fate/Zero Blu-ray Disc Box II English Translation booklet: Introduction, p.003-004

    Introduction
    Special issue
    Gen Urobuchi:
    To give a specific example, allow me to explain Berserker's flashback scenes, which were probably the most heavily revised from the original. In the original novel, it is a scene that jumps to an entirely different time period that is inserted right in the middle of the duel at the end. It is precisely because the depiction of the fight had been placed in the back of the reader's mind as a concept that it was possible to depict and link this to his past as a separate narrative thread.

    With that said, in the visual medium, because the audience takes in the battle in the underground garbage by means of sight and sounds, the scene has a sense of place which helps to make it seem as if they themselves are there. If the point of view were to suddenly shift to another time, another story, the tension that suffused that showdown scene would suddenly evaporate. Although humans can develop differing concepts in parallel, they can only focus on and process one view point at a time. If the anime version has ignored this difference and stayed slavishly true to the original novel and revealed Berserker's past in exactly the same way, the viewers probably would have felt a visceral sense of incongruity and instantly been thrown out of the moment.

    The same goes for the flashback scene where Gilgamesh reminisces about Enkidu. In the novel, I took care to write it with deliberately vague, ambiguous imagery to depict Gilgamesh's flashback so as not to ruin the afterimage of Excalibur's activation scene that immediately preceded it. However, this sort of allowance isn't possible in visual media. Every scene is depicted with the same resolution and the same sense of presence as time unfolds at the same pace. So with that in mind, they had no choice but to place both the catharsis of Excalibur and the information dealing with Enkidu on the table and decide between. Of course, it was obviously the former that was more vital to the overall story.
