Hijikata Toshizou (土方 歳三, Hijikata Toshizō?), Class Name Berserker of the Bakumatsu (幕末のバーサーカー, Bakumatsu no Bāsākā?), is a Berserker-class Servant summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order. Hijikata is also a Non-classed Servant summoned by Okita Souji's Noble Phantasm, Flag of Sincerity, in Fate/KOHA-ACE.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Identity[edit | edit source]
The Vice-Commander of the Shinsengumi, a security organization active around Kyoto during the Bakumatsu period, Hijikata Toshizou. Upholding strictly absolute discipline within the squad, he is a feared demon of a vice-captain even amongst the peerless swordsmen that are his squad-mates.
A samurai who threw away his pale blue haori, put on western clothing, picked up a gun and continued to fight against the changing era in order to follow through with his own truth.
Hijikata's life ended as the samurai was shot to death at Hakodate.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Personality[edit | edit source]
Although a Berserker, normal conversations are possible. Contrary to his demon-like fighting style, in the battlefield he is a pragmatist who also has the flexibility to employ any means necessary to win. That being said, he doesn't endorse the ruthlessless of characters such as Nobunaga. When the Master that summoned him has given up to fight, he will instantly become a target for purging.
In battle he rages wildly like a devil yet retains his rational aspect as a tactician, a rare type of Berserker. The demonic vice-captain bearing the brand of loyalty ---Shinsengumi, advance!
Many of Hijikata's lines, particularly during his Noble Phantasm, indicate that the Shinsengumi will not or cannot perish so long as he keeps fighting, and indeed he initially refused to acknowledge his condition as a Heroic Spirit because doing so would have meant admitting that he had been defeated. Although his identity marks the defeat of the Shinsengumi as a whole, he claims to also be forward thinking and does not dwell on the past or future. While Hijikata is not fond of younger girls, particularly those who are childish (such as Nobunaga or Chacha), he is noted to be fond of mature women with large breasts (such as Carmilla and Passionlip) and is quite bold when interacting with them.
In GUDAGUDA Legend of the Imperial Capital Grail, it was shown that Hijikata has incredible mentality as he was visibly not affected by the Holy Grail
