Gai Gotou (後藤 劾以, Gotō Gai?) is one of Shirou Emiya's classmates in class 2-C at Homurahara Academy.



Gai is a happy-go-lucky person who is easily influenced by TV, favoring the period drama Abarenbō Shōgun, changing his behaviors daily simply because of what he watched the previous night.[1]


In ufotable adapation of Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works], Takeuchi thought the designs were a little bit outdated, so he went with those changes.[2]


Fate/stay nightEdit

He only briefly appears in the Unlimited Blade Works route after Shirou and Rin Tohsaka form their official alliance. Along with other students, he notices Rin waiting in the hallway, and he describes her feelings of frustration of Shirou not noticing her from her expression and posture in such an overly-accurate and ridiculous way that Shirou questions if he was a general in his previous life. If Shirou hides from her, Gotou and the other students continue to narrate her actions until she attacks Shirou with an eraser that flips Shirou over his desk, causing Gotou to think Shirou was performing a "ninja move" and asks to be able to learn it from him. He did not have a design in the original visual novel, and he only obtained one in the first anime adaptation.

Fate/hollow ataraxiaEdit

Gai appears very briefly, helping Shirou by giving him the description of a "foreign beauty" that was seen wandering around Homurahara.
