Profile[edit | edit source]
Identity[edit | edit source]
The supreme wise king who returned from the journey of immortality. In legends, he has been described as “the one who saw everything”. At times ruthless, at times approving of human nature; the great king of Uruk who strictly led the masses. Upon returning from his search for immortality, he found Uruk in a decaying state due to his negligence. Since then he has dedicated himself to repairing and maintaining his kingdom, assisted by the chief priestess, Siduri.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Personality[edit | edit source]
As a Caster, Gilgamesh has a more mature mindset, he comes from after his journey to find immortality. In this form, he is considered as a wise king by the people of Uruk.
« Hahaha, that becomes clear as day when you look at the alignment! I can overcome most penances and ordeals, but death from overwork is the only thing I never want to experience again! »
Mankind's oldest hero, the King of Heroes Gilgamesh. Why does he manifest as a Caster? Pulling out countless numbers of magic wands from his Noble Phantasm "King's Treasure" and unleashing various forms of attacks; that figure of his certainly appears like that of a magus, but in practice, it is far different from a magus who compiles magic reaching towards the mystery of the world. He is also quite different from the author type of Casters that write of words that compose into poems or novels and fold into a book their very own worlds-----That figure of his, is so to speak a magus in shape only.
There was an opinion left in the Chaldea leftover unofficial records:
"I think that's probably just his own insinuation. You can call it a sneer. He understands. What the true nature of the King of Magecraft who advanced the incineration of Human Order is. ....No, not just the King of Magecraft. I'm sure he...."
As a matter of fact, his attitude towards the Master does not appear to be much different from that as an Archer, but...
There is a majority opinion among the staff members of Chaldea that manifesting figure of his is not a severe one towards the Master.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
- Nero/Nero Bride
- "Indulge Flamboyantly or spoiling yourself is fine and all, but save up sometimes! you best be noted that only infinite wealth can be allowed to exist in my treasury!
- ........... No, I didn't say it is fine to aim for reaching the level of my treasury"
- " You keep telling me to take a rest, Well, I guess it's fine to take a rest once in a while..... wait, wait, wait wait!!! YOU CAN"T FIND POLAR BEARS IN THE SOUTH POLE!!!"

Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
Seventh Singularity: Babylonia[edit | edit source]
When Solomon freed Tiamat from the Imaginary Number Space, Gilgamesh, who just returned from the underworld, foresaw Uruk's destruction, and inscribed his vision in the Tablet of Destinies. Leaving the tablet in Kutha, he returned to Uruk, and told his subjects of his vision. He then took the role of a mage to protect Mesopotamia, and began to prepare its people for their impending doom. With the appearance of Demonic Beasts in the north, the era began to turn into a Singularity. Gilgamesh ordered Babylon to be dismantled, and used to a build wall to seal off the north from the rest of Mesopotamia. After the era became a Singularity, he summoned Merlin. Afterwards, despite being nearly drained, he summoned Ushiwakamaru, Musashibou Benkei, Leonidas, Amakusa Shirou, Fuuma Kotarou, Ibaraki-douji, and Tomoe Gozen, incarnating them through his own magical energy. Leonidas commands the efforts against the Demonic Beasts, and trains both the soldiers of Uruk and the Northern Wall to be a self-sufficient force. The other Servants summoned by Gilgamesh also help defend Uruk, though Ibaraki would eventually defect. Shirou and Kotarou would perish alongside the scouting parties Gilgamesh sent to investigate the jungle surrounding Ur and Eridu. Tomoe would die killing Girtablilu, the general of the Demonic Beasts. By the time six months have passed, Uruk has become a fortress city, its people having survived thus far thanks to their resolve and Gilgamesh's efforts. Gilgamesh later sent Merlin to the Cedar Forest to retrieve the Tablet of Destinies, having forgotten where he left it. He also foresaw Chaldea's arrival
He and Siduri meet Ritsuka, Mash, and Medusa when Merlin brings him to his throne room in Uruk's ziggurat. Realizing Ritsuka and Mash are the ones he foresaw, Gilgamesh decides to test the pair by combat. He orders Merlin not to interfere, and though Merlin complies, he has Ana assist Ritsuka and Mash. Halfway through the battle however, Gilgamesh loses interest. He is throughly unimpressed by Ritsuka and Mash, deciding they are unfit to aid him, and demands that they leave. He says it is too soon for them to be here, poinsoting out how Ritsuka's face says they're still clueless about the situation. He reveals he knows about Chaldea, and that he will become a Heroic Spirit. He then shows his Grail to the group, just as Mash said they need to retrieve the Grail to restore the era. He deduces it is why the Three Goddess Alliance is attacking Uruk, but he refuses to give it to Chaldea. Ritsuka asks for it in exchange for defeating the Alliance, but Gilgamesh refuses their aid. A soldier then reports Ishtar is heading for Uruk. Gilgamesh begins insulting her extensively when she bursts from the roof. Ishtar tries to kill Gilgamesh for insulting her, and Ritsuka to stop any rumors of their first encounter. Following the ensuing battle, Ishtar prepares to destroy the ziggurat. She stops though upon seeing who Ana truly is, and leaves. Gilgamesh and Siduri go back to their previous work like nothing happened. Gilgamesh declares any disaster in the era will be resolved by its people. Despite his low opinion of Chaldea, he commends them for their summoning systerm, and for resolving six Singularities. Nonetheless, he still refuses the group's aid, saying they'll have to work from the bottom if they want to help. He then puts Siduri in charge of them.
Over the next month, Gilgamesh listens to Mash's reports about the group completing various tasks to help Uruk's people, while still directing the war effort. Recognizing their efforts, he tasks Ritsuka's party with investigate Ur in the southern jungle. When they return and report the situation there, he reprimands them for retreating instead of rescuing Ur's people. Regardless, he commends them for completing their investigate. He decides to put the efforts to rescue Ur's people aside for now, seeing Quetzalcoatl is different from Gorgon. He then asks Merlin if he could see Marduk's Axe in Eridu from Ur. Merlin answers the jungle was too thick to confirm such, but he could sense the Axe's divinity.
The next morning, Gilgamesh enters the Chaldean Embassy. He orders Ritsuka and Mash to go to an observatory at the Persian Gulf. There they will exchange the empty jars they're delievering by wagon for the jars of collected war at the observatory. Merlin and Ana aren't joining since Gilgamesh only had two travel permits. He joins them because he's exhausted from his duties, denying he craves excitement. The group eventually reach the observatory. Gilgamesh investigates something at the observatory, while Ritsuka and Mash exchange the jars. As Ritsuka and Mash struggle against Kingu, Gilgamesh recalls how Enkidu called his former fighting style of producing inexhaustible supply of blades and firing them the perfect waste of energy when Kingu calls it the optimal way to fight with their body. Addressing Kingu as Enkidu, he notes the former's lack of efficieny, and their uncharacteristic joy for battle. After Mash corrects him, he calls Kingu possibly stronger than the original. He thereby theorizes they acquired a powerful magical reactor core. Unable to stand Gilgamesh's voice anymore, Kingu declares they will end the world and him with it and leaves. Gilgamesh assumes them being broken is why they looked like to be in pain, but he ignores since it's already over. He then returns to Uruk with Ritsuka and Mash.
The next day, Gilgamesh orders Ritsuka's party to retrieve the Table of Destinies from Kutha, having finally remembered where he left it. He also tasks the group with gathering testimonies from ranchers about Ishtar damaging their ranches along the way.
When the group report their success the next day, Gilgamesh is amused by them tying Ishtar, letting her go out of pity, and her helping them escape. He then tells about Nippur, whose populaton have survived thus far by isolating themselves inside while under siege by Demonic Beasts. Uruk has been evacuating the city's populace in between the beasts' attacks. However, Nippur's supplies are now depleted, so its surving populace need to be evacuated immediately. Gilgamesh says Ushiwakamaru and Benkei repelled a Demonic Beast attack the other day, so there shouldn't attacks for another six days. He orders the group to evacuate Nippur's survivors to the Northern Wall during this pause. If they're successful, he'll take back about what he said about them being useless. He then instructs Ritsuka on how to read the Tablet, telling them to say: "Ur na-nam, ur na-nam. Dur-an-ki, gir-edin.", which means "There was a city, there was a city... the meeting place of heaven and earth, ■ ■ empty field." After Ritsuka receives a vision from the Tablet, Gilgamesh understands from their face that they didn't receive a definite answer, and says that fate is now sealed. He calls the vision to be one of the few clues to finding Solomon. He says Ritsuka will eventually understand the vision's meaning. Until then, he suggests keeping it in their back of their mind, knowing they'll be eventually forced to face it.
Gilgamesh reads the group's report about the loss of Nippur. He tells Ritsuka that sacrifices are unavoidable in war. As king, he will prepare the memorial for the lost, and compensate those left behind. He then reconfirms with Merlin that Gorgon will attack in ten days. He asks if Gorgon said humans have no chance against the Alliance from the very beginning. Mash confirms as much, recalling Gorgon said humans are merely obstacles, and she only needs to be careful of the other goddesses. Gilgamesh is amused by this, finding strife amongst enemies to be the most entertaing weakness. He then points to how each goddess are different from each other: Gorgon is fueled by her hatred of humans; Quetzalcoatl has no hatred, uses what's neccessary when necessary, and knows how to read the situation; Ishtar works hard to destroy her own land. Neogiating with Gorgon is impossible, but the other two are different. Therefore, Gilgamesh tasks the group with convincing Ishtar to join them, so they can make use of Gugalanna. He then gives the group 30% of the rare jewels in his treasury for bribing Ishtar.
When the group return with Ishar, Gilgamesh tells them group that Marduk's Axe, which they can use against Gorgon, is in Eridu. A soldier then reports that Quetzalcoatl has destroyed the southern gate, and is now heading straight for the ziggurat. Gilgamesh becomes frustrated by the damage Quetzalcoatl caused before she left, noting it could affect morale at the Demonic Front if it keeps happening. He stops Siduri from nearly revealing the existence of his secret weapon. It is then insinuated Quetzalcoal has a temple in Eridu dedicated to her to increase her divinity. The group realize they will need to destroy the symbol of her power at the temple in order to lower her divinity. Gilgamesh then orders them to go to Eridu to defeat Quetzcoatl and retrieve Marduk's axe. He says they'll immediately begin preparations for the battle with Gorgon upon their return.
While Ritsuka's party are away from Uruk, Ereshkigal takes advantage of Gilgamesh's fatigue for one of her gallû spirits to take his soul to Kur. Gilgamesh hides from the Gallu Spirits to avoid being placed in a Soul Cage until Ritsuka, Mash, and Ishtar come to retrieve him. He decides to join the group to help defeat Ereshkigal so he can return to Uruk. After passing through the third gate, he reveals Enkidu's remains disappeared from Kur before Chaldea's arrival. After passing throught the fourth gate, he is now annoyed by Ishtar shrinking and losing power after passing through a gate. He notes the battle with Ereshkigal will be more difficult if it continues. He then tells Ritsuka and Mash how Ereshkigal's powers decrease outside Kur, and they're useless against the living. After passing the remaing gates to reach Ereshkigal's palace, Gilgamesh decides to leave what happens to her after she's defeated to Ritsuka.
Inside her palace, Ereshkigal changes the atmosphere to the equivalent of a mountain top. She then sheds her guise as a gallû spirit to reveal her true form, the same one Ritsuka met before. Gilgamesh declares to Ereshkigal that he will convict her under his royal authority for joining the Alliance. Ereshkigal asks him if he is going to kill her with the Dingir in exchange for his life. Gilgamesh replies that will depending on her answer, and asks if she abandoned her duty to protect Sumer's people and culture. Ereshkigal answers neither her role nor her obligations have changed. In response, Gilgamesh declares her defeat will serve as punishment for her sins. Ereshkigal asks Ritsuka if nobody is going to commend for fulfilling her duty by herself this entire time. Ritsuka is uninterested though since she was only fulfilling her duty. Gilgamesh tells Ereshkigal it's fine for to lament the obligations given to her, and it's fine to abandon them for an alternate path. However, bemoaning the obligations she chose to uphold dutifully is evil, and to praise that pain only insults herself. Gilgamesh then says Ereshkigal's achievements are to be praised, and the pain in her heart for her alone. In response, Ereshkigal fights the group in her gallû spirit form. After she is defeated, Ishtar is returned to normal size, and Gilgamesh is unbound from the underworld. Ereshkigal is then bisected by Ziusudra, though what he killed was her bond with the Alliance. Gilgamesh asks Ziusudra who he is, understanding no ordinary human could do what he just did. He then asks who called him, as it wasn't him, Solomon, nor Chaldea. Ziusdra answers he came from the Abyss to set events in motion, coming another land as a friend. He then reveals Ereshkigal joined the Alliance to safeguard as many souls as possible out of her love for all humans fated to die. As Ereshkigal begins to lament all the people she killed, Gilgamesh tells her that their bodies aren't buried yet, so she only needs to release their souls from their soul cages to revive them. He also says her death toll caused by exhausted are negligible compared to Gorgon. Ereshkigal then agrees to aid the group as repayment for Ritsuka's kindness. The group then return to Uruk.
Back in his physical body, Gilgamesh immediately starts prepartaions for the battle against Gorgon. When Ritsuka's party return from Kutha, he immediately starts the strategy meeting for the upcoming battle. Gorgon's current forces consist of roughly 100,000 Demonic Beasts gathered in the Cedar Forest. Gilgamesh orders the group to go to the Blood Fort, while the Northern Wall forces hold off Gorgon's forces. The Blood Fort is located in the underground lake deep within the Cedar Forest. Gorgon will also lose much of her Authority once the Blood Fort is destroyed. Gilgamesh suggests Quetzalcoatl throws Marduk's Axe at the Blood Fort from the Northern Wall, where it was relocated. Merlin devises a plan where he and Ritsuka will sneak into the Cedar Forest and head to the Blood Fort. Once they're close enough, he'll signal Quetzalcoatl who'll throw the axe to him. Gilgamesh leaves the matter of Kingu to Quetzalcoatl, as she won't receive retribution for attacking them since they aren't a fellow Alliance goddess.
When Tiamat is awaken by Gorgon's death, Uruk soon comes under attack by Laḫmu. During this time, Gilgamesh orders the survivors to be evacuated to Nippur, which will be used as temporary refugee base. He says it's unnecessary to recruit soldiers from the refugees, so only born warriors need to stay in Uruk. He notes they have two days at most until the destruction he foresaw comes; he's frustrated that Merlin hastened that by a full days. He then states those who wish to live should head for Nippur, while those who wish to fight should stay in Uruk. Ritsuka's party then arrive, and tell him about what transpired at the Blood Fort, including Merlin's warning that one of the seven Evils of Humanity have awoken before his "death". Gilgamesh explains Gilgamesh reveals the Evils of Humanity are seven entities that destroy humanity, becoming stronger the more humanity develops. They're not evils that destroy humanity, rather they're evil that humanity destroys. They're the original basis for Heroic Spirits, and born from humanity's bestial nature, their class is Beast. Tiamat is one of them, though she has yet to fully awaken. Quetzalcoatl then asks Gilgamesh what the Lahmu emerging from the blackened Persian Gulf. Gilgamesh replies he doesn't know since every one captured melted away, so he asks Romani Archaman. Romani reveals they're made from the Mud of Gods, and have an amount of magical energy comparable to Kingu. Ritsuka then asks Gilgamesh where Siduri is. He reveals the Lahmu are also kidnapping people, not just killing them, from all over Sumer and bringing them to Eridu. He begins to order the group to go to the observatory when Ritsuka again asks him about Siduri. He answers Siduri was captured when she attempted to protect the people from the Lahmu. He then orders the group to go to Eridu when Ritsuka reprimands for his uncaring reaction to Siduri being captured. He gives them one day to investigate there and return.
While the group are gone, Gilgamesh set up weapons along Uruk's walls in preparation for another Lahmu attack from any direction. Later, he contacts the group at the observatory after they failed to stop Bel Lahmu from delivering the Grail, which it tore from Kingu, to Tiamat. He is using a remote communcation like Romani's, revealing he set it up when he visited the observatory before with Ritsuka and Mash. He says the weapons he set up can hold the Lahmu for an hour, but neither the soldiers nor his magical energy won't last any longer than that. He gets angry at the group when he learns of their failure until Quetzalcoatl takes responsibility, and asks if he has a plan. In response, Gilgamesh reveals the blackened sea is Tiamat's Authority, the Chaos Tide, which absorbs human and Servant alike that touch it. He also reveals the sea level began to rise when Tiamat retrieved the Grail. Once it floods Mesopatamia, it'll convert the surviving population into Tiamat's children, thereby destroying the era. Seeing that slaying Tiamat will stop the mud, he asks Ritsuka if they're willing to do so, given she's far greater than the Demon Gods they fought so far. Ritsuka answers they are, which impresses Gilgamesh. In response to Mash wanting Ritsuka to command from the observatory, Gilgamesh reminds her that Servants receive magical energy less efficiently the further they're from their Master. He then reveals he hid a water-repelling in the observatory in case someone like Mash didn't know how to apply a barrier of magical energy to their feet so they can fight atop the water.
Unfortunately, Ritsuka's party fail to slay Tiamat, as her true body emerges from the sea. She advances towards Uruk, sending waves of the Chaos Tide across Mesopatamia. Uruk is protected thanks to the Fangs of Napishtim (Gilgamesh's secret project) diverting the wave. Gilgamesh orders the Fangs to be repaired immediately when a soldier reports they were damaged. After the soldier leaves, Gilgamesh contemplates how the moment he foresaw has finally come. Even he cannot foresee what lies beyond the battle with Tiamat.
When Ritsuka's party return to Uruk, he starts the briefing, first listening to a soldier's report. The soldier reports there are only 500 humans left alive in Sumer. Mash believes the report is mistaken, but Gilgamesh says it's correct. He continues between the two Lahmu attacks and the sea enroachment, the first dynasty of Uruk has fallen. Even if they survive, the kingdom would only decline. Gilgamesh tells Mash not to despair because for as long as Sumerian culture survives, there'll be others who will follow in their footsteps. He then explains the Lahmu have split into two group; one that rests on the ground as sphere come sunset; another that guard Tiamat's surrounding in the air. He then looks at Romani's analysis of Tiamat, but he gets frustrated that it doesn't detail any weaknesses. He realizes they'll have to intercept her somehow when Jaguar Warrior deduces Tiamat will reach Uruk in a day. He wonders though why Tiamat is so invincible, to which Romani theorizes it's due to her paradoxical protection, where she cannot die as long as life exists on Earth. Gilgmesh then contacts Ereshkigal, agreeing with Ritsuka's suggestion that they need the opposite, through the Mirror of Kur she lent him. He asks her to send Tiamat to the Kur, where she'll be considered the last living being. He orders her to open a gate beneath Uruk. Ereshkigal says such a task would normally take a decade, but she confesses she set something up because she hates Uruk, so it should take three days. Gilgamesh suggests they use Gugalanna to hold Tiamat back until Ereshkigal completes her task. Ishtar however reveals she lost Gugalanna, who she was looking for when she first met Ritsuka and Mash. Gilgamesh scolds her, and makes her hold a tablet that reads "Worst goddess". Realizing they lack a way to combat Tiamat, everyone takes a break.
Later that night, Gilgamesh recalls Ritsuka and Mash's accomplishments when they return to his throne room. He tells Ritsuka not to blame themselves for all the death caused by Tiamat's release. He reveals his vision showed he was the only survivor in Uruk, not alongside 500 other survivors. Even though Uruk's destruction cannot be averted, Gilgamesh considers the fact that 500 people survived to be a great achievement. He reveals he told the people of his vision, and they chose to fight until the end. Gilgamesh comments he likes Mash is smiling at their resolve, saying he would have killed her if she pitied her. He then tells Ritsuka that he thought it was unnecessary to defeat the Alliance because Tiamat would appear regardless. He was also certain the goddesses would destroy themselves. He tells Ritsuka to be proud that their choice to fight the Alliance let 500 people, who were fated to die, survive. He then reveals those who died in a Singularity will not revive once the Incineration of Humanity is resolved. They will remain dead in the proper history, with only their cause of death being different. Even so, Gilgamesh tells Ritsuka and Mash they should be proud of their accomplishments. He continues human history is made by the people of an era weighing the scales of good and evil themselves, and the future generations who judge their value. He tells Ritsuka and Mash to follow their own path, as none of them knows what comes after. He then confesses he found Uruk empty, with the exception of Siduri, when he returned from his search for immortality. He realized he was unworthy to be a true king when Siduri told him she wasn't going to leave until she complained to him. At that moment, Gilgamesh decided to rebuild Uruk, coming with idea of the fortress cities that made Uruk into what it is now. He hasn't repented for his action, as the king doesn't live for his people. He ruled over Uruk for his own entertainment, being particularly entertained by Chaldea's struggles. He then tells Ritsuka and Mash to rest for tommorrow.
At Celestial Hill, Gilgamesh jolts Kingu back into consciousness with his talking. He tells them to leave, saying he will ignore their crime of leaving their corpse on the hill if they do. He then gives them the Greater Grail of Uruk to replace the Grail that previously served as their core. Kingu asks him why he is helping an enemy, reminding him that they aren't Enkidu. Gilgamesh replies he knows they're different person using his friend's body. But even so, they are worthy of his friendship. Even if their heart and soul are different, their body is the one and only Chain of the Heavens. As the successor of the weapon he trusted the most, Gilgamesh finds nothing wrong with favoring Kingu. He then leaves telling them to do what they will. When Kingu is confused by his meaning, Gilgamesh explains the circumstances of their birth do not matter, they only need to do the things they really want to.
At dawn, Gilgamesh shows everyone a diagram of Tiamat made by Romani in collaboration with Uruk's priests. He then points to Tiamat's legs, recounting last night's reports that say they're too thin to support her weight, and she can only walk on water. Because she can walk on the Chaos Tide, Gilgamesh changes their main target to it from Tiamat. A soldier then reports Tiamat has resumed her advance, and she'll reach Uruk in approximately 8 hours. Gilgamesh realizes they'll need to destroy her legs, and orders the soldiers to gather 50 elites to go into battle. Quetzalcoatl stops him however since the soldiers are needed to intercept Tiamat at the city wall. She will destroy the Chaos Tide with Piedra Del Sol, though it uses a lot of stamina and magical energy. With all in agree with her plan, Gilgameh commences the operation to intercept Tiamat. He then orders the soldiers to their posts, saying only he will remain in the ziggurat. Then, as Ritsuka's party begin to depart, Gilgamesh commends his people for surviving thus far. He tells them Uruk will no matter what they do. He lets them determine how they will meet that end. He is proud they chose to resist despite knowing the end would come. He then declares the protection of the gods is no longer needed in the world of man, pointing to the fortress city he built and the people as proof. He further declares now it is time to deny the primordial god, and begin the Age of Man. He tells his elite warriors that the upcoming battle is for true seperation, to give their lives to him, and to pass on Uruk's glory to future generations until the last man.
Uruk soon comes under attack by Bel Lahmu. Gilgamesh comments none could've predicted that Tiamat could fly, calling it a miracle would Ritsuka's party could delay her. He commends Quetzalcoatl and Medusa (as Gorgon) for their sacrifices, as Uruk would've fallen otherwise. He then demands a progress report from Ereshkigal, warning Tiamat will arrive in 2 hours. Ereshkigal answers they're barely able to keep their pace up.
When Ritsuka's party return, Gilgamesh shows them that the Chaos Tide has flooded the city. He questions if Tiamt has a mind of her own in response to Ishtar if she truly hates humans so utterly. He calls her a mechanism that only exists to destroy the world, becoming so when she became an Evil of Humanity. Tiamat herself then arrives, so Gilgamesh orders Ishtar to hover above the dark cloud directly under the sea. He'll issue further instructions when ready. After Ishtar complies, Gilgamesh starts firing all 360 mounted Dingirs at Tiamat using own magical energy. He then takes a shot from Tiamat originally meant for Ritsuka. Despite his condition, he continues firing the Dingir. A clump of Lahmu then crash onto the ziggurat with force equal to Gugalanna's hoof, knocking out Ritsuka and Mash. After the pair wake up, Gilgamesh shows them that Kingu used Enuma Elish to bind Tiamat in the Chains of Heaven. He bids farewell to Kingu, saying their feat was equal to any in their life before. He is impressed the Chain of Heaven held back even the physical strength of a god of creation. Tiamat then breaks the chains, killing Kingu. Ereshkigal announces she finished moving Kur to beneath Uruk, so Gilgamesh orders Ishtar open a hole. She launches An Gal Tā Kigal Shē when Tiamat arrives at the ziggurat, killing Gilgamesh, and sending Ritsuka, Mash, and Tiamat down into Kur.
Using his death as a catalyst, Gilgamesh summons his Archer self to help Ritsuka, Mash, Merlin (who returned from Avalon), Ereshkigal, Jaguar Warrior, and the First Hassan (who was Ziusudra in disguise) against the draconic Tiamat. After the Singularity is resolved, he appears before the group as a ghost. He confirms he summoned himself from when he was searching for immortality, his golden age, to give Chaldea a peek at the true King of Heroes. He then asks Ritsuka how they found Uruk, to which they give a positive answer. He then gives them and Mash his Grail, passing it off as a cup of wheat ale. He bids them farewell, declaring an end to the Demonic Front's operations. He tells them prevent the Incineration of Humanity without fail before disappearing.
Moonlight | Lost Room[edit | edit source]
Serva★Fes 2018 : Servant Summer Festival![edit | edit source]
Upon arriving the destination, Gilgamesh lost all of his memory because of a surprise attack from BB. Although He can't remember his own name and identity, Gilgamesh didn't forget his rich ,calling himself ”Gorgeous P”. He hired Sheba as his secretary, and D'eon was appointed to be his bodyguard. He didn't hire Astolfo who he thought to be a troublemaker.
As an investor, Gilgamesh participated in the event. During the period, He took an interest in the doujinshi” Our Round Table ”and suggested adding a new character ”The Oldest Prince”,who one day becomes Lion King lily’s home tutor and develops a romantic relationship with his student.
In the end, deeply moved by the doujinshi created by Jeanne Alter , Gilgamesh finally got his memory back. He announced that Jeanne Alter was the champion, deciding to publish her work.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
In this form, Gilgamesh is no longer in his prime, and as such, he gets overpowered by Kingu who may have been even stronger than the original Enkidu. Differently from when he is an Archer, his way of being in this form is not of a hero that personifies raging power, but that of a wise king that governs the masses. While he boasts a vast amount of Magical Energy, his body is not as sturdy as that of a Servant. Not even him would be able to simultaneously maintain the Spirit Origins of four servants at once as even supplying Merlin almost drained him dry. Gilgamesh is proficient in summoning, and after learning about the Holy Grail War from Merlin he went crazy, summoning seven more servants to fight in the Demonic Front. The reason why he isn't on the front lines throughout most part of the Babylonia Singularity is partial because he hadn't recovered all his magical energy.
The servants he summoned are unique in that they only required Gilgamesh's mana to be summoned, and they then gather their own mana to stay in physical form by eating and sleeping like humans. They also survive by taking in mana from around them as it is abundant in Uruk due to being in ancient times.
Because he is attempting to protect his back even more than when acting as the King of Heroes, his meagerness during combat has drastically increased. He fights with various Mystic Codes drawn from his treasury and a large axe. He mainly utilizes long-ranged attacks.
Gilgamesh claims that by hiding shadows, holding his breath, and meditating, he's able of activating EX Rank Presence Concealment, allowing him to evade the gallu spirits of the Underworld. The level of credibility of this statement is questionable.
Class Skills[edit | edit source]
- Item Construction (Fake) (A Rank): A Skill to produce devices that carry magical power. Since he is not a magus, Gilgamesh originally would not possess this Skill, but he has an ability equivalent to it due to the existence of Gate of Babylon. All tools that can be created (that can be retrieved from the Noble Phantasm) are “items inside the Babylonian treasure vault”.
- Territory Creation (A Rank): Not only producing tools as a magus, he can even pull off the construction of buildings. To begin with, the citadel of Uruk was designed by Gilgamesh. There are limits to constructions of just clay and stone, but even as he murmurs “Needs more lumber. Seems like I’ll have to go to the cedar forest...”, the king still doesn’t feel like going to the cedar forest due to the matter with Enkidu having a lasting effect on him.
- Divinity (B Rank): Originally he possesses the highest Divinity rank of A+, but due to him not harboring any good impression in regards of the gods, the rank declines.
Personal Skills[edit | edit source]
- King's Return (A Rank): The wise king who had returned from his journey for immortality, growing as a king. Increases star generation value to all allies.
- Golden Rule (A Rank): The wise king who had returned from his journey for immortality, growing as a king. Increases star generation value to all allies.
- Charisma (A+ Rank): A wise king, who was said to be the most outstanding king of all. He possesses an extremely high charismatic nature that is almost like a magical power or a curse..
- Sovereign of Magical Wands (EX Rank): The Skill that denotes Gilgamesh’s way of being as a Caster that manipulates various mystic codes. Grants bonus to magecraft-type attacks. He will handle tools with care in case of fighting while being mindful of them. He was such a king.
Noble Phantasms[edit | edit source]
Fundamentally the same Noble Phantasm he possesses as an Archer. By connecting the space around him with Babylon, he pulls out an innumerable amount of magic wands and mystic code and utilizes magic. In the magic wands and mystic codes, the great thaumathurgy of the age of the gods is loaded. Due to the display of effects and invocation that mostly does not consume the user's magic energy, it is a Noble Phantasm that excels in its extraordinary cost performance.
A long-range bombardment from the citadel of Uruk. A prodigious cannon fire that concentrates not only Gilgamesh’s own, but also the total force of the people of Uruk that lived in the Age of Gods. In Fate/Grand Order, after the entire attack on the enemy, it has the effect of increasing his allies' defensive strength.
Spreading through the corners of the earth just like the radiance of a star, he sees through everything; the oldest of heroes, the King of Heroes, Gilgamesh. This is his spirituality, turned into a Noble Phantasm. He sees through be it the enemy's True Name or Noble Phantasm, or even the truth concealed in multiple layers by simply a glance. Normally a continuously active Noble Phantasm, but in FateGO its True Name release is not performed.

Level 1 Bond
Source: Sumerian Civilization, Epic of Gilgamesh
Region: Babylonia, Uruk
Alignment: Lawful Good Gender: Male
Manifested not as a tyrant, but in a condition where he grew up as a king after returning from the netherworld.
Level 2 Bond
- Item Construction (Fake): A
Producing devices that carry magical power.
Since he is not a magus, Gilgamesh originally would not possess this skill, but he has an ability equivalent to it due to the existence of his Noble Phantasm.
All tools that can be created (that can be retrieved from the Noble Phantasm) are “items inside the Babylonian treasure vault”.
Level 3 Bond
- Charisma: A+
Gilgamesh’s charisma as a wise king, who was said to be the most outstanding king of all. He possesses an extremely high charismatic nature that is almost like magical power or a curse.
- Sovereign of Magic Wands: EX
A skill that denotes Gilgamesh’s way of being as a Caster that manipulates various mystic codes.
Grants bonus to magecraft-type attacks.
He will handle tools with care in case of fighting while being mindful about them.
He was such a king.
Level 4 Bond
- Territory Creation: A
Not only producing tools as a magus, he can even pull off the construction of buildings. To begin with, the citadel of Uruk was designed by Gilgamesh.
There are limits to constructions of just clay and stone, but even as as he murmurs
“Needs more lumber.
Seems like I’ll have to go to the cedar forest...”,
the king still doesn’t feel like going to the cedar forest due the matter with Enkidu having a lasting effect on him.
Level 5 Bond
"Signal Cannon of the King"
Rank: B Type: Anti-Army~Anti-Fortress Noble Phantasm
Long-range bombardment from the citadel of Uruk.
A prodigious cannon fire that concentrates not only Gilgamesh’s own, but also the total force of the people of Uruk that lived in the Age of Gods.
With heartrending grief, Gilgamesh loads his own collections on the ballistae and entrust them to the soldiers.
“Broken Phantasm? I have been doing such a thing since over 4,000 years ago!”
Mankind’s oldest King of Heroes, Gilgamesh himself.
Differently from when he is an Archer, his way of being in this form is not of a hero that personifies raging power, but that of a wise king that governs the masses.
“Hahaha, that becomes clear as day when you look at the alignment!
I can overcome most penances and ordeals, but death from overwork is the only thing I never want to experience again!”
Because he is attempting to protect his back even more than when acting as the King of Heroes, his meagerness during combat has drastically increased.
