God Force: The Five Soldiers of the War God (軍神五兵, Gunshin Gohei?) is the True Name of the Houtengageki (Sky Piercer), a two handed halberd known as Lü Bu's primary weapon. It was a masterpiece of a weapon due to its versatility that put to use all major characteristics of large two handed weapons, allowing it to be efficient in slashing, thrusting, battering, scything, and sweeping. The actual weapon was from the Northern Song era, and didn't exist while Lü Bu was active. God Force was actually a Chinese gadget created by Chen Gong, a military adviser, who thought it up in order to aid Lü Bu during numerous dangerous predicaments resulting from each time he betrayed a lord. To be exact, it is the strongest weapon born from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms era of China.
Chen Gong saw a War God in Lü Bu's strength and form, and projected on him the image of China's oldest God of War, Chi You, who was said to be the inventor of the war axe, shield, bow & arrow, and held a different weapon in each of his six arms. The result born from this idea was an artificial, multi-mode Noble Phantasm super weapon that had six forms in order to let the many martial techniques of Lü Bu bloom as he pleased in order to take advantage of his opponent's weaknesses. It has three different categorizations of varying strength, and it can be said Lü Bu has the equivalent of six Servants' worth of Noble Phantasms for himself. The forms, Forces (フォース, Fōsu?), include:
- Slash (切断, Zetsudan?) for heavy damage attacks that nullify or cut and break through all kinds of physical defense.
- Thrust (刺突, Shitotsu?), the Halberd (矛, Hoko?) Force, for heavy damage attacks that can stun on hit (the target being rendered immobile due to spear impalement) and penetrate through a line of enemies.
- Blunt Strike (打撃, Dageki?) for raising his defense by transforming into huge bracers, or using a special defensive technique for blocking and redirecting attacks.
- Sweep (薙ぎ, Nagi?) mode for sweeping aside a row of enemies.
- Parry (払い, Harai?) mode for doing special counterattacks to do damage while deflecting physical attacks.
- Shoot (射撃, Shageki?), the Cannon (砲, Jū?) Force, for a large-bore, wave motion cannon-like "Lü Bu beam". The halberd separates into a large bow and arrow that charges and fires at the enemy.
Under the Mad Enhancement of the Berserker class, the weapon has lost its multiple functionality due to most of Lü Bu's skills being erased from his mind with only his knowledge of the spear and basic artillery left behind, making him only able to use the Halberd and Cannon functions.
In Fate/Grand Order, Lu Bu was updated to display more usage of the forms of the God Force, showing it transform into a pair of Spiked Gauntlets, Tonfas, a Nine-Ringed Broadsword, Chain Whips, and a Warhammer.
Imitation God ForceEditImitation God Force: False - The Five Soldiers of the War God (偽 軍神五兵, Nise Gunshin Gohei?) is the Noble Phantasm of Red Hare. He doesn't have the Noble Phantasm God Force that Lu Bu possesses as a spirit, the so-called spear Houtengeki. He releases the Noble Phantasm in a shooting mode.... considerably conscious of God Force's shooting mode. However it is not released as magical light of a large caliber, but a enormous spear fired like an arrow from a drawn bow.
As a consequence of searching for large strong arrow, he may have judged "Jeez, It's faster to fire a spear now....".

The anecdote in which he saved Liu Bei - the hero of the Three Kingdoms who Lu Bu regarded as a younger brother-in-law - from a dilemma with only a single arrow was later extolled as "Gate Halberd Shot".
He went through many battles while betraying many lords, but in the end he was assaulted and defeated by Cao Cao due the betrayal of a subordinate. He was executed.
Highly selfish, Lu Bu believes that there is no general in the world greater than him, but it seems that he let his guard down in front of the strategist Chen Gong, who "effectively" employed him in tactics to the very end.

01 - God Force: The Five Warriors of Guan Yu
The true name given to Lu Bu Feng Xian's legendary halberd, the Sky Piercer. This weapon was considered the epitome of the weaponsmith's art as it perfectly balances all aspects of hand-to-hand combat into one formidable package.
The God Force was a masterpiece of Chinese weapons design created by the smith Chen Gong especially for Lu Bu, who he saw as the reincarnation of the ancient war god Guan Yu. Chen Gong believed that this god was responsible for the introduction of weaponry to the Chinese and strove to create a weapon that contained the strengths of all the weapons known to humanity at that time. This lead to the creation of Lu Bu's Noble Phantasm, which allows him to use his vast knowledge of the martial arts to adapt to and take advantage of his opponent's weaknesses.
Due to being under the effects of the Blind Rage enhancement, most of Lu Bu's skills have been erased from his mind and only his knowledge of the spear and of basic artillery (such as cannons) remains.
02 - Gate Halberd Shot
Lu Bu excelled at archery and was especially adept at shooting on horseback, earning him the nickname the "Flying General." He was very close to Liu Bei, one of the heroes of the Three Kingdoms era of Chinese history, and considered him to be his brother. When Liu Bei found his armies by Ji Ling, an ally of Lu Bu, Lu Bu went alone to meet with the heads of the opposing sides in an effort to stop the impending bloodshed.
Upon arriving at the gate of Ji Ling's encampment, he ordered that a halberd be set into the ground 150 paces away from where he stood. He then turned to the to leaders, and said the following:
"I will shoot an arrow, and if it hits the small blade sticking out from the side of that halberd, withdraw your forces. If I miss, you are free to slaughter each other down to the last man."
Both the Earth and Heavens aligned in perfect harmony, and Lu Bu's arrow hit the intended target, forcing Ji Ling to withdraw his forces.
03 - Red Hare
"Among men, Lu Bu; among horses, Red Hare",
As Lu Bu was considered the most powerful warrior in China, so was his favored horse considered the most powerful steed to be found in any of the major kingdoms.
The animal would allow no other person to ride it, or even allow anyone but Lu Bu to handle its reins. Its physical prowess was also legendary and it has been said that Lu Bu managed to jump across a 30 meter wide moat while riding Red Hare.０１ - 軍神五兵

Blind Rage [A]
Gives a significant boost to most stats, but at the cost of one's reason and sanity. As all decisions are made by the Master, the Servant under this spell will be little more than an empty automaton.
Gives one the ability to negate any type of mental interference. It also improves the damage done by melee attack and increases one's bravery. However, as Lu Bu was summoned as Berserker, the importance of bravery has been made most.
Restless Soul [B]
Gives one the temperament of a lone wolf; unable and unwilling to settle in one place or serve one master. This person will never be able to follow greatness, yet. is incapable of finding greatness on his own. This skill negates the effect of Charisma skills of the same rank.
01 - Character Background
His name is synonymous with treachery and betrayal, though his fame as a might general was known throughout the period of Chinese history known as the era of the Three Kingdoms.
His martial abilities are so advanced that he can easily be classified in any of the five classes present in the Holy Grail War: Lancer, Rider, Assassin, Berserker and Archer.
02 - "General of Recursion"
Lu Bu Feng Xian, the traitorous general mentioned in the the Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
While he had considerable success on the field of battle, his legacy will forever stained by his callous betrayal of the two men who took him in as a son. His military prowess elevated him to one of the strongest generals of the Three Kingdoms, though his inability to trust or follow led to his downfall. His lack of judgment was such that he slew Ding Yuan, the first of many confidants he betrayed, at the urgings of Dong Zhuo, who was frequently referred to as Demon Warlord. But once again Lu Bu's true nature emerged and he ended up slaying Dong Zhuo.
After this second act of treason, he wandered the provinces of North China, attempting to bring them all under his domination. However, his inability to rule led to his capture and execution by the general Cao Cao.
In the end, it was Lu Bu's hubris that brought him down as he believed that he was the mightiest general alive and that no one could defeat him. And although his patron Chen Gong was disappointed and disillusioned by him, he was able to use Lu Bu in his own machinations until his student's death.

The Five Soldiers of the War God [Noble Phantasm]
Berserker’s anti-personnel, anti-army, anti-castle noble phantasm.
The true name of the two-handed sky piercer halberd recognized as Lu Bu Fengxian’s main weapon.
A multi-mode weapon which has six different forms.
This amounts to Lu Bu having six Servants’ worth of noble phantasms for himself, which are:
“slash” for heavy damage attacks that nullify or cut through and break all kinds of physical defense;
“thrust” for heavy damage attacks that can stun on hit (target being rendered immobile due to spear impalement) and penetrate through a line of enemies;
“blunt strike” for raising Lu Bu’s defense by transforming into huge bracers, or using a special defensive technique for blocking and redirecting attacks; “sweep” mode for sweeping aside a row of enemies;
“parry” mode for doing special counterattacks to do damage while deflecting physical attacks;
and “shoot” for everyone’s favorite large-bore, wave motion cannon-like Lu Bu beam.
It wouldn’t be strange for other Servants to be muttering “maybe we should just let him do everything”.
