Diatrekhōn Astēr Lonkhē (Meteor Spear): Spear-tip of the Star Traversing the Skies (宙駆ける星の穂先
, Chū Kakeru Hoshi no Hosaki
Diatorekōn Asutēru Ronkēi
?) is Achilles's Hero-killing spear (英雄殺しの槍, Eiyū-goroshi no yari?) given to him by his father Peleus, and previously given to Peleus as a wedding gift by Chiron. He cannot invoke the True Name against female opponents due to carrying an awful amount of regret from killing the Amazon Queen Penthesilea with this spear.[1][2]

Differing from that of Karna's spear meant to bring about destruction with immense weight, it is a simple spear with sturdy workmanship that is well designed for close combat. Pierce the chests of heroes, he holds it lightly in one hand as a means of using for its original purpose as a throwing weapon. Having been able to pierce through all other heroes, he feels it is superior to any other weapon in the aspect of its thrust, allowing it to pierce hearts and penetrate skulls with every strike he makes.

When summoned as a Lancer, this spear would also gain abilities similar to Gáe Buidhe, in which wounds inflicted by this spear cannot be healed as long as it exists.[1][2] However, since Achilles would not have access to his chariot, he would need to rely on his feet for mobility.

Duel FieldEdit

During his life, he developed an ability with the spear that not even Chiron knew of, using magecraft to create a Duel Field (決闘場, Kettō-ba?), a fair battleground between two opponents, where no gods, outside help or elements of luck can intervene. It creates an arena cut off from all of the surrounding environment and time, which isn’t released until one of the combatants is defeated. In terms of magical theory, it is virtually the same as Aestus Domus Aurea.[2] It is a separate dimension outside of time that is comparable to a Reality Marble, so when the duel within concludes, it will have lasted only a second from an outside perspective. Due to Hector not wishing to fight Achilles with the advantage of his immortality, he developed the ability so that they could evenly fight. The dueling rules must be agreed upon by both parties so it is useless against someone refusing to duel. While the fight against Chiron in Fate/Apocrypha involves only fists, weapon usage can be permitted. Achilles must descend his chariot to make this Noble Phantasm function usable. And due to the nature of this Noble Phantasm and the curse by the Amazonian Queen, it can neither be used on someone weaker than himself or on a female. The three people that Achilles never wants to have a rematch with regardless whether it is before or after his death are Hector, Penthesilea and Chiron.[3]


In the original light novel of Fate/Apocrypha, the design for the spear was incomplete and it wasn't fully seen until the anime adaptation. The spear bears a teal tip and rings upon its handle in A-1 Pictures' adaptation of the Fate/Apocrypha anime.
