Profile[edit | edit source]
Identity[edit | edit source]
His real name is William Henry McCarty Junior. A representative outlaw from the American Wild West, even in modern times his popularity is extremely high. From the fact that one of his few remaining pictures was put for a price of two hundred million yen in an auction, one can perceive said popularity. His father is unknown, but it seems that he received a higher education from his mother and, considering he was a Western outlaw, he left behind some skillfully written letters.
When he was 12-years old, the curtain raised for his life as an outlaw when he stabbed a man to death who insulted his mother. Since then, he accumulated crimes of cattle thief and robbery at the same time he took jobs of escort of goods and the likes. He was the type who would pick quarrels at random with the other outlaws whenever he was in town, but, before anyone knew, he started to have a smile plastered in his face and tried to avoid trouble.
Although he was accepted by the citizens thanks to his tactful attitude, but maybe due his fate as an outlaw, he ended up being dragged into the cartel-war of John Tunstall, the farm owner who employed him. As a result of this conflict, which is commonly called the Lincoln County War, Kid ended up being arrested by his one-time friend - Sheriff Pat Garrett.
Still, he escaped in less than a year. Sheriff Pat Garret vindictively attempted a pursuit, finding him on Fort Sumner, New Mexico. Maybe he thought that he couldn't even in an open gunfight, or maybe there was some other reason--. When Billy left his room to seek some food, Pat Garrett performed a sneak attack on him.
The Juvenile Rascal King, said to have killed 21 people by the time he was 21 years old. Some ten years or so after his death, the Wild West age met its de facto end. The outlaws were treated as mere criminals and the frontier was taken into the framework of the state.
Or maybe, the very existence known as Billy the Kid itself was the symbol of the Wild West, and his death indicated the demise of the age when outlaws could willfully live as they pleased.

Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
Fifth Singularity: E Pluribus Unum[edit | edit source]
Billy is a member of Geronimo‘s Resistance. He and Robin Hood are fending off a Celtic attack in Lubbock. They overhear Ritsuka’s party fighting Celtic soldiers outside of town, assuming they’re reinforcements. They soon meet Florence Nightingale and Rama, with the former rushing in ahead of the others. Billy confirms with Rama that he and the others are allies. After the remaining Celts are defeated, Mash explains the situation to the two Archers. Geronimo suggests the group needs Saber and Lancer to help. Robin confesses he met two problematic Servants who fit the aforementioned classes earlier.
Later, the group arrives at the entrance of Dallas, where one of the Servants Robin met is located. After defeating some unexpectedly weak Celtic soldiers, they hear a disturbing song that Ritsuka, Mash, and Robin recognize. Entering the town, they meet with Elizabeth Báthory as she continues her singing. They deduce that is the reason the soldiers they were so weak. Mash convinces Elizabeth to join them by saying it will help promote her art.
Passing through a forest to Alexandria, the group witness Nero Claudius being confronted by Fergus mac Róich, who was sent to kill her. Robin uses No Face May King to ambush him when Nero reveals his presence. The others then arrive to defeat Fergus. Before disappearing, Fergus tells Rama that Sita is being held on Alcatraz Island.
That evening in the forest, Billy and Robin go gather firewood. Later at night, Geronimo informs the others that the Celtic stronghold is the White House. Billy wonders if they can wait for the Celts and the Americans to destroy each other, but Geronimo says that would be difficult. He also says the chaos of the current situation also small forces like them can move around freely. Given the Celts greatly value individual strength, Geronimo speculates they won’t emphasize defending their capital. He then states the group will split into two. One with Nightingale to rescue Sita, and another to infiltrate the White House and assassinate the Celtic queen. Geronimo decides Ritsuka and Mash will accompany Nightingale and Rama; Nero convinces Elizabeth to go with them. Taking the others with him, Geronimo is given a communication device by Mash.
The next morning, the group split into their respective teams to carry out their missions. Billy asks Geronimo why he would save America. Geronimo answers his people won’t be saved if American isn’t saved. He also likes the idea of America owing him a debt, even if everyone forgets once the era is corrected.
At Washington, Geronimo’s party goes to assassinate the Celtic queen, Medb, during a parade. They sneak up on her with No Face May King, then isolate her in Nuptiae Domus Aurea. However, Cú Chulainn Alter suddenly appears when Medb calls for him and attacks Nero. Confused by his strength inside the theater, the group learns Medb created him from her wish on the Grail for Cú Chulainn to be a strong and wicked king who’ll stand beside her. The group fight him when Arjuna arrives. Cú Chulainn Alter fights Nero alone while Medb and Arjuna fight the others. Geronimo orders Robin to take the communicator and escape. After he escapes, the others proceed with their battle. Billy shoots at Arjuna after the latter destroyed Geronimo’s Tsago Degi Naleya with Agni Gandiva. However, Arjuna deflects his bullets and kills him. Billy apologizes to Geronimo and disappears wishing he was more useful.
Final Singularity: Solomon[edit | edit source]
Billy the Kid is one of the "E Pluribus Unum" Singularity Servants that arrive to aid Chaldea.
Anastasia: Permafrost Empire[edit | edit source]
Three months prior to Chaldea’s arrival, Billy and Beowulf were summoned to the Russian Lostbelt by the remnants of the Counter Force. They wandered around with no knowledge of their situation. They eventually became the protectors of Yaga Demensk, and the leaders of a band of male Yaga. However, a number of them rejected human leadership and turned to banditry.
Billy attacks Ritsuka’s party when they come to Yaga Demensk in a fierce blizzard. After fighting them some, he calls Beowulf over. Beowulf immediately suspects Ritsuka of being the human mage with Ivan, so he and Billy fight the group to test their strength. After proving themselves, the group is accepted by the duo and their men.
Inside Beowulf’s cabin, after the circumstances of his and Billy’s summoning are explained, Atalanta Alter then proposes they join forces against Ivan the Terrible. Beowulf and Billy have no issue, but their men won’t accept it out of male chauvinism. Denying he was responsible for the dead Yaga found earlier, Beowulf and Billy recall rumors of a human killing Oprichnik and Yaga alike. Beowulf then proposes they form an alliance out of his and Atlanta Alter’s concern for the potential discord between their factions. Billy suggests using Shanshan, a domesticated Demonic Beast which detects magical energy through scent, as a messenger. It cannot learn the others’ scents for differing reasons though, so Billy joins the rebels instead. Beowulf then warns the Oprichniki in Yaga Moscow have strength on par with a Servant and proposes his men attack the capital to draw their attention to give the rebels an opening.
Joined by Billy, the group return to the rebel stronghold. Avicebron however warns they’re nearly out of food. Atalanta Alter reluctantly proposes they steal from the pro-Ivan city of Yaga Smolensk, Patxi’s hometown. Ritsuka orders to keep damage to a minimum when Avicebron warns the situation could turn into a massacre. Avicebron also suggests they gather materials to build a wall of golems while the rebels prepare. Afterwards, Billy has Shanshan learn Avicebron’s scent. The group then returns to the stronghold where the rebels are now ready.
The group quickly kills the Oprichniki before negotiating with the mayor. Atlanta Alter demands 60% of the town’s food supply before taking it down to 50%. However, more Oprichniki suddenly arrive and start killing rebel and civilian alike. The rebels and civilians nearly get into a skirmish when a rebel shot a civilian after mistaking his broom for a weapon. Atalanta Alter stops them, and orders her rebels to aim only for the Oprichniki. Avicebron then arrives, and his golems collect the weapons and kills the Oprichniki. The group retreat after the rebels get about a third of their intended target. Patxi doesn’t return with them however.
After resting in a cave for the night, the group see a village that was destroyed by Ivan. They reach Yaga Tula by nightfall. Avicebron eavesdrop on the civilians to learn there is a Servant in the church. The group finds it empty though, but the Servant only left recently. Eventually the Servant believed to be Mozart, Amadeus Alter, arrives in front of the church waiting. Once the group exits the church, he attacks them, knowing they’re Chaldeans. Billy shoots off his mask to reveal he isn’t Mozart, which is confirmed by a Spirit Origin analysis. Kadoc Zemlupus then arrives and reveals Amadeus Alter is Antonio Salieri. He reveals the Cypters’ goal is to grow their Lostbelts and end the Proper History. He then orders his Oprichniki to kill the group. After the Oprichniki are killed, he calls for his Servant, Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova, and she attacks the group. Salieri eventually wakes up and unleashes Dio Santissimo Misericordia de mi on her. She blocks it with Viy, and Salieri accuses her and Kadoc of brainwashing him. Kadoc denies this and orders Anastasia to crush Salieri’s legs. He protects her however when Avicebron’s snow golems attack her. The group use this chance to escape with Salieri.
The group set camp in a village recently destroyed by the Oprichniki. Sherlock explains Lostbelts differ from Singularities because their history continues past the point of divergence. They’re similar to culled parallel worlds, but they’re currently encroaching on the Proper History. Salieri recalls overhearing Grigori Rasputin (knowing him only as Metropolitan Macarius) calling the Fantasy Tree the cornerstone of the Lostbelt, warning that Ivan and his Oprichniki protect it. He agrees to join the group on the condition he’s allowed to kill Mozart.
The group return to the rebel stronghold. Atalanta Alter has tracked down magical ore and a jewel able to control golems. She agrees to share the information if the group helps construct a new stronghold. She wants it built at a ravine between the current stronghold and Yaga Moscow. A large forest inhabited by vicious Demonic Beasts protects it. Atalanta Alter previously didn’t consider moving there because its natural defense would make attacking the capital difficult. However, this changed when her scouts discovered an incomplete tunnel that cuts through the forest. It can allow the rebels to reach the capital in a day once it’s complete. Billy stays at the stronghold, while the others go to the construction site.
After the new stronghold is constructed, Billy is asked by Leonardo da Vinci to return to the Shadow Border with Ritsuka and Avicebron. While there, Billy has his gun upgraded by Da Vinci. After the Border is repaired, the group start to head back to the stronghold when Salieri warns through Shanshan that it’s under attack.
They soon arrive at the stronghold to find half of the rebels missing. Rasputin confronts them and confirms the Oprichniki are Ivan’s Noble Phantasm, Chyornyj Oprichniki. After confirming he captured the rebels, Rasputin reveals Patxi betrayed the others when faced with Ivan. He then calls for Minotauros, who had eaten the rebels except for the 1/5 captured. Minotauros then separates the group with his Noble Phantasm, Chaos Labyrinthos.
In the labyrinth, Ritsuka and Billy encounter Patxi. Admitting to his betrayal, Patxi reveals Rasputin tossed him into the labyrinth once he gave the new stronghold’s location. The others then reveal to him that they’re from the Proper History, where the events of the Lostbelt never occurred. While trying to escape, the group become surrounded by the Oprichnik when they’re saved by Miyamoto Musashi. She explains she had multiple hostile encounters with the Yaga and Oprichniki since wandering into the Lostbelt. Billy realizes she is the rumored human killer. He then figures they can use the sounds of his bullets to find their way around. Thanks to Patxi’s hearing, the group eventually find their way out.
Outside, the group learns Musashi’s existence is unstable, even while contracted to Ritsuka. Beowulf then arrives, having learned of the attack from his men watching the stronghold. Billy proposes they wake up Ivan since he can only summon the Oprichnik while sleeping. Beowulf then orders his men to attack Yaga Moscow, but Billy suggests he serve as a decoy as well. After his men leave, Beowulf joins the group. He then reveals Atalanta Alter and Salieri were captured. Atalanta Alter gave herself up when some children were taken hostage, with Salieri following her lead. Beowulf’s men learned they’re being held in a prison fortress beyond the capital. Sherlock warns the slightest disturbance in the capital could awaken Ivan after deducing others are trying to keep him asleep.
The group drive the Border to the prison, only to find it empty. Instead, they find a note from Kadoc saying Atalanta Alter and Salieri are to be executed in Yaga Moscow in five days. The group then proceeds to Yaga Moscow to stop the execution. Billy, Beowulf, and Patxi acquire Bicorns for the group to ride to Yaga Mosow. Once they reach the capital, Billy goes on ahead of the others like they planned. There he fights Oprichniki using his upgraded gun.
After Ivan is killed, Billy joins the others at Fantasy Tree Orochi while they’re fighting Atalanta Alter, who betrayed them to save the Yaga. He challenges her to a duel which he wins. After Atalanta Alter disappears, Anastasia uses her powers as the new Lostbelt King to let Orochi take root, so the Lostbelt can finally expand. She and Kadoc then fight the group. After they’re defeated, Kadoc tries to use the Sirius Light to rewrite the Lostbelt. Billy shoots at him, only for Anastasia to shield him. After she disappears, Billy knocks Kadoc unconscious. The group prepares to bring him to the Border when Orochi begins releasing True Ether. Da Vinci sends the Border’s extra magical energy to the group so they can ascend and stop Orochi.
The group stops Orochi, but they lack the means to destroy it. The Priestess of the Alien God then appears at its roots, and freezes and shatters it with a touch. With Orochi gone, the Lostbelt begins to disappear. After Patxi is buried, Beowulf and Billy disappear.
Other appearances[edit | edit source]
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Class Skills[edit | edit source]
- Independent Action (A Rank): One is able to act even with the absence of their Master. However, in a situation where one decides to use Noble Phantasms and the like that requires an enormous amount of magical energy to consume, backup from their Master is necessary.
- Magic Resistance (—): Because he is of the latest Heroic Spirits, he has no resistance to spells at all.
Personal Skills[edit | edit source]
- Marksmanship (A++ Rank): General shooting techniques, which include trick shots and quickdraws by means of small arms. When it is at A++, one is a once-in-a-century genius.
- Quick Draw (A+ Rank): The specialization of the quick draw technique among the marksmanship techniques. His skill with this is to the extent that even if he drew out his weapon just after he saw his opponent drew out theirs, there would be sufficient enough time for him to shoot at them and he would still have plenty of time to spare afterward.

Level 5 Bond
"Thunderclap of Breaking Sound"
Rank: C++ Type: Anti-Unit
Range: 1~100 Maximum Targets: 1 person
A counter-like three-burst shot by means of a Colt M1877 double-action revolver (nicknamed "Thunderer"), whose use Billy the Kid is said to have favored. The anecdotes associated with him turned into a Noble Phantasm.
To be exact, it is not like the revolver is a Noble Phantasm, and if you comprehensively look at the whole of "Billy the Kid's marksmanship when he holds this revolver", it seems more of a Personal Skill than a Noble Phantasm.
The most devious aspect of this Noble Phantasm is its low prana consumption, derived from the fact that the concept of Noble Phantasm is incorporated into the greater section called "technique". In specific terms, it is no more than the same extent of consumption of employing a E Rank Noble Phantasm.
