Kavacha and Kundala: O' Sun, Become Armor (日輪よ、具足となれ(カヴァーチャ&クンダーラ), Nichirin yo, Gusoku to Nare(Kavācha & Kundāra)?) is the divine set of golden armor (Kavacha) and golden earring (Kundala) given to Karna by his mother, KuntiWP, as confirmation of his heritage. Having copulated with the god Surya through a ritual, Kunti was afraid of bearing her first child and felt anxiety over whether he would acknowledge the child, so she prayed for proof that Karna was his son. Due to its toughness, Indra attempted to nullify it by transforming into a BrahmanWP priest and visiting Karna's mansion. Indra asked him to hand over his personal artifacts upon going to bathe, and although he knew of Indra's trap, he swore that he would not refuse a Brahman's requests, giving up the armor that was the only sign of his birth. Karna's posture was much too noble during the event, so Indra thought that it had to be rewarded, granting him the spear Vasavi Shakti. He still possesses the armor as a Heroic Spirit even though it was stolen in the myth, and utilizing Vasavi Shakti requires the armor to be permanently sacrificed.[2]

Kavacha and Kundala is a powerful defensive-type Noble Phantasm that emits the radiance of the sun, integrated with Karna's body. Because it's light itself taken shape, it is difficult to destroy even to the gods.[1][3] While it appears massive, it's an invincible armor that disregards physics and concepts to curtail antagonistic interference.[2] Although Karna boasts the greatest physical defense out of all the Servants that participated in the Great Holy Grail War, it is noted that by concentrating an enormous amount of Magical Energy, Atalanta can fire an arrow strong enough to wound even him.[4] This is because Karna's armor doesn't nullify all attacks, but instead reduces the damage he takes to one-tenth.[2][5] Thanks to his armor, Karna could easily match a thousand of Vlad III's stakes without paying any care to the ones that stabbed countless times all over his body. From his feet to his right shoulder to his left flank to his elbow, neither his movements nor his strength changed at all, as the armor reduced the damage taken to mere scratches that he could heal while fighting.[5] Siegfried could also harm Karna without using his Noble Phantasm and it is noted that a moment's carelessness could lead to a pierced heart or severed head.[6] Brahmastra Kundala is stated to rival Karna's armor.[5]

When facing an attack more powerful than what his armor can safely handle on its own, Karna can cover his body with his Mana Burst (Flame) skill to further augment his Endurance, as seen when he blocked Sieg's Balmung.[7] In his fight against Vlad, when facing larger amounts of stakes, Karna broke one thousand stakes with his spear, burned eight hundred with the flames covering his body, and stopped two thousand with that golden armor.[5] Truly remarkable, considering that Vlad’s repeated attacks were half-hearted at all, and that any other Lancer besides Karna wouldn’t have been able to withstand it.[8] Even inside the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, where the fame of all servants besides Semiramis is reduced to zero, Vlad III in his Legend of Dracula was strong enough to pierce through Karna's armor by throwing stakes with his hands, as seen when one of them pierced Karna's foot. Darnic believed that had Vlad used this Noble Phantasm during their first encounter in Romania, he would have easily torn Karna apart.[5]

By forcefully invoking the True Name of this Noble Phantasm, Karna momentarily becomes the very radiance of the sun, due the nigh-indestructible armor being imbuded with Surya's power. Thanks to this, Karna was able to endure Arjuna Alter’s Mahāpralaya for 5 seconds, only to be destroyed right after.[9] Rama was impressed he lasted as long as he did, and he said that was a feat akin to holding back all the waters of the ocean or catching a falling star with one’s bare hands. He states that there are a few heroes in all of history who could have withstood a cataclysm like that, even just for a few seconds.[10] Karna states that no matter how powerful the Moon Cell may be, as long as it remains the moon, it wouldn't be able to destroy his armor.[11]

    Vasavi Shakti: O Sun, Abide to Death
    A spear of light that can only strike once. A spear of mortality made of lightning.
    When it was time for the fight between Karna and Arjuna to reach its final stages, Indra, Arjuna's father and king of the gods, in order to help Arjuna, took away Karna's greatest armor, the "golden armor" through trickery.
    However, Karna's behavior on that occasion was so noble that Indra came to adore Karna, the enemy of his son, and gave to Karna, as compensation for taking his armor, the power of the god of thunder that even he had not mastered.
    That was this "thunder spear." It holds the power to defeat the gods themselves, but there is not record of Karna using this in his myth.
    Golden Armor
    In Hindu mythology, the golden armor and earrings and the hero Karna had upon his body. Karna's mother, Kunti, feared being an unmarried mother and prayed for the armor and earrings from Surya in order to protect her son.
    A defense-type Noble Phantasm that emits the radiance of the sun itself. Since it is light itself given shape, even a god would have difficulty destroying it, and Indra put in the effort to render it unavailable to Karna.
    In the myth, Indra took the form of a Brahmin and visited Karna's castle. He approached Karna when he was taking his holy bath and said, "I wish to receive the things you carry."
    Karna had sworn not to refuse the request of a Brahmin made during this time. While aware of Indra's trap, he accepted this request and handed over the requested item, the armor that was his only proof of his lineage.
    While it was taken from him in the myth, as a Servant, Karna still possesses it. While it appears massive, it's an invincible armor that disregards physics and concepts to curtail antagonistic interference.
    As long as he wears it, the damage Karna takes is reduced to one-tenth.
    Hero of Generosity
    The specialty of the Saint of Generosity Karna, according to The Mahabharata.
    Karna is poor at expressing his emotions, but he has the tendency to become angry when those who have picked him up, those who have supported him, are scorned. Even if it is a relationship based only on mutual benefit, to repay a favor with a favor is how Karna lives.
    Possibly due to that selfless devotion of his, when people came to him, seeking something, he would generally grant it to them, as long as they were being truthful.
    And this was without considering possessions or assets but with him considering the state of their heart first.
    However, during the Holy Grail War, his master's victory is his priority, so a request for him to "yield his victory" will go unanswered, and he would admonish his opponent, as such a proposal would have no benefit for them.
    "What a ridiculous misunderstanding. First of all, victory is something one must attain for oneself. Is a victory that I give truly a victory for you?"
    This is not out of ill intentions, but rather because the question of "Doesn't having victory yielded to you cause you to lose at life?" is matter of real worry for him.

    The son of the sun god, Surya. In order to allow him to unify with Surya on a later occasion, he possess Divinity of the highest rank. Compared to heroes related to sun gods with Divinity ranked below B, he exhibits high defensive abilities.
    While Karna is not good at asserting himself, when it comes to protecting the dignity of his sun god father, he shows a furious determination.
    It seems that for the motherless Karna, that his father was the sun god was his only certainty, on top of receiving that power, he swore that he would never be able to do anything that would shame his father.
    02 - Uncrowned Martial Arts [-]
    Skill at arms that when unacknowledged for various reasons. Each sword, spear, bow, Riding, and Divinity skill is brought down one rank, and attributes will be displayed as their complete opposites. However, once his true name is revealed, this skill will no longer take effect.
    Also, this is a digression, but the rank of his luck stat was reported by Karna himself.
    03 - Discernment of the Poor [-]
    The ability to observe and see through one's opponent's personality and attributes. Cannot be tricked by deceit or spoken excuses.
    Truly, he was a immensely prudent and superhuman hero. He had the virtue to accept differing ideologies, even if they were his enemies', and their accompanying ways of life and respect them as "ways to live."
    But Karna has difficulty conveying his true nature. Karna's speech and conduct pricks at those true natures. Words and actions meant to deceive oneself, behavior meant to gloss over, conviction. Karna sees through all of those things and frankly states "the true nature that his opponent wants to hide."
    As a result, he comes to be hated by the majority of his opponents and is forced to fight them.
    Anyone would hate having their faults being spoken of.
    It goes without saying, but Karna's words and conduct do not contain any disgust at his opponent('s faults).
    For Karna who affirms the position of every human, both faith that is not compatible with him and beauty and ugliness that he cannot understand are things to be held in esteem. Because he cannot put the admiration in his heart into words, people misunderstand him as someone who "denies and hates everything."

    Personal Background I
    Karna appears in the Indian epic poem The Mahabharata, as a hero on the vanquished side. (The central conflict of The Mahabharata is the war over influence between the Pandava royal family and Kaurava royal family.)
    Karna became famous as the rival of Arjuna, the great hero of Hindu mythology.
    Karna was born from the daughter of a human king, Kunti, and the sun god, Surya.
    Kunti was the wife of the Kuru king Pandu, but he was under a curse that prevented him from producing children, so his queens each had no choice but other methods to bear children.
    Kunti was a woman who had a mantra that allowed her to copulate with and bear the child of any god and, by those means, gave Pandu children.
    ...But. Before she became the king's wife, she tested the mantra and bore a single child. That child was Karna, the golden hero who was born from relations with the sun god Surya.
    Kunti was a determined woman and, afraid of her first birth and anxiety over whether the god would acknowledge his own child, prayed to Surya: "I want proof that this child is your son."
    Surya heard Kunti's words and gave his own power and attributes to the child as he was born.
    This is the source of the golden armor that made Karna invulnerable.
    But. Though she was shown such grace and faithfulness, Kunti threw away her first son. For her, who was to become the queen of Kuru king Pandu, the existence of her son nothing but unnecessary.
    This is how Karna, who was thrown away by his owner mother, came to be ignorant of his own birth, but he lived with only the things he had been given by his father, the sun god Surya, held in his chest.
    The form of Karna, who didn't know his own mother's face and who questioned whether his mother was motivated by dishonesty, couldn't be called beautiful.
    Though he possessed his father's brilliant authority, his form was stained black. His countenance was cruel, and his every action was violent. Because of his lack of human mother, he didn't learn the subtleties of human emotion and spent his days being considered a nuisance by the people around him.
    That was how Karna was raised, but he didn't hate his mother or his surroundings. Instead, he accepted everything.
    "I was given life by my mother and father. No matter what kind of person my mother is, I do not hold contempt for her. If there is anything I hate, anything I hold contempt for, it is myself alone."
    In contrast to his appearance, Karna was an exceedingly virtuous and perceptive child. Possibly the cause of that was because, while he was the child of a god, he was also a child without a single relative. Karna was blessed with the opportunity to question the poor, their lives, and their value. As a result, he chose, of his own free will, the path where he persisted in his own fastidiousness.
    "I who was born with more than people should display a 'proof of my life' greater than those of people. Unless I do so, the people without power will not be rewarded."
    What Karna had was simply the conviction to live without bringing dishonor to his father's authority and without shaming the people who compensated him. "Though he may be relentless and ruthless, he is also full of majesty," is Karna's stance given form.
    And Karna, who had grown to be a young man, participated in a conference of the Kuru family. At this conference, the five Pandava brothers indulged themselves in the martial arts they were so proud of and so famous for. The third son Arjuna's skill at the bow was especially magnificent, to the point that he was praised as having no equal.
    When the grounds were united as one voice praising the Pandavas, Karna leapt up to participate and displayed martial arts of the same rank as Arjuna's.
    (This is a digression, but the reason for the unmotivated Karna to challenge Arjuna is unclear in the legend as well. The reason that Arjuna was the only opponent that Karna, who never envied nor hated anyone, was conscious of was established later.)
    Karna challenged Arjuna to determine which of them was superior. But to challenge Arjuna, a member of the royal family, one must be higher than a Kshatriya.
    (*Kshatriya... Those in the caste system who are of the military or royalty. Karna seemed to be a Vaishya (merchant class) or a Shudrya (a slave).)
    Karna, whose challenge was refused due to the difference in status, was a laughingstock. The one who saved Karna in this situation was the eldest of the one hundred princes of the Kaurava clan, who opposed the Pandavas, Duryodhana.
    He became interested in Karna and made him a king at that place. This is how Karna was saved from disgrace, but his foster father, who had heard of his promotion, appeared and established his origins.
    The five Pandava brothers further ridiculed Karna, who displayed martial arts superior to their own, saying, "The son of a charioteer should have a sense of shame."
    These words enraged Karna. If it were about himself, he would accept and be resigned to anything, but he would not allow insults toward his foster father. Even if it was a foster father who announced himself out of greed, to Karna, he was the father who raised him, who Karna should take pride in.
    The antagonism between Karna and the five Pandava brothers had become something he could not step back from, but sunset had come and the curtain was drawn on the conference.
    From then again, Karna, as the friend of Duryodhana, who saved him and treated him as a king, lived as a guest of honor of the one hundred princes of the Kaurava clan.
    He would learn later that what awaits him beyond that is a cruel battle with the five Pandava brothers--great hero Arjuna.

    Personal Background II
    The antagonism between the Kauravas whom Karna entrusted his bow as a soldier and the Pandavas that Arjuna led intensified and finally became a war with their territory in the balance.
    That war is called the Kurukshetra War, and that is where Karna's life came to an end.
    Karna continued to wield his strength so that the one hundred Kaurava princes, and consequently Duryodhana, would be victorious. On the Pandava side, the only one who could oppose Karna was Arjuna, but even Arjuna could only be resigned to the fact that facing Karna directly was death.
    Through several conflicts, pretexts, and mutual hatred, the war between this two camps arrived at Kurukshetra.
    Things having reached this point, Karna's mother, Kunti, wagered one last gamble: to reveal his lineage to Karna and draw him to the Pandava camp.
    Kunti told only Krishna, who was a friend of Arjuna in the guise of a normal person, of this situation, and the two of them went alone to meet Karna.
    Kunti revealed that she was Karna's mother, spoke how fighting with the five Pandava brothers would yield no benefits whilst weeping, and persuaded him that by fighting together with Arjuna, he would attain glory.
    Karna, without failing to show the friend of his arch-enemy Arjuna, Krishna, thanks, quietly listened to his mother's arguments.
    "I understand your words. To join hands with the five brothers and return to my proper form. That would be a story filled with light, without a single fault."
    Then, facing the rejoicing Kunti, Karna continued speaking in an even softer voice.
    "But I wish for you to answer one thing. Do you not feel that those words of yours were too late?"
    She was too late in declaring she was his mother. She was too late in looking back upon Karna. "If you do not feel that this is a shame, then please answer. You, who declare yourself my mother, if you yourself have done no wrong, then I will accept the past without feeling ashamed."
    While Kunti was a selfish woman, that was due to her natural innocence and and simple-mindedness; she was most definitely not a shameless woman. She knew her own deeds...throwing away Karna, who had just been born, for her own sake...were full of selfishness and reproached herself for that.
    And for that reason, she possesses a minimum amount of pride. She could not tell to Karna, who had been raised alone until now, who was grateful to his foster family, who had never once embraced hatred toward another, a horrible lie.
    Kunti broke off the negotiation without answering. Karna said this to Kunti, who stood with her head hanging,
    "That is a deception, a complacent love. The only one your love can save is you. Your love is directed at no one but yourself. But--"
    "I shall answer that feeling. From hereon, during the war, I will not kill any of the brothers who come to match me. I will only use all my power against my arch-enemy Arjuna."
    Karna swore not to lay a hand on the brothers of the Pandava family who were inferior to him in strength. The countless times Karna allowed the five brothers to go after this was due to this pledge.
    "Return to the place that you obtained with your own hands. ...Though it was only once, I am grateful that you called me your son."
    Karna opened the castle gate and escorted Kunti out. That was the love that Karna bore for his mother, Kunti. It was not love for his mother at this late point in time but Kunti's resolution to raise "her feelings as mother" in the end... even if it wasn't genuine... That is what he answered. Kunti risked the danger of having her past come to light. To the hero of generosity Karna, such determination is worthy of compensation.
    And so, just before the final battle. Arjuna's father, Indra, who understood that Karna could not be persuaded, took the form of a Brahmin, contacts Karna, and takes his golden armor.
    Though Karna had lost the property of being unkillable that he received from his father, he never said he would stop proceeding to the battlefield. He did not care that when he had lost his golden armor he had hastened his own death.
    Indra, who was touched by how gallant a figure Karna struck, asked why. Why did he continue to the battlefield, having lost his armor, but without reproaching Indra, who had hatched this scheme out of love for Arjuna?
    "There is no need to hate you. It is simply a matter of being a step ahead. In fact--yes. Though you are a god, you are also a father. Such a thing brings me joy."
    Then why do you advance toward the battlefield, asked Indra.
    "To me, defeat is bringing shame upon my father. Even though death awaits me, I cannot run away."
    After all, that was why he lived. To Karna, who lived his life with pride in those who gave him life and raised him, his life was not his own.
    "Including, I owe Duryodhana a debt. For some reason, that impudent and timid man is so bright to me. It may be blasphemy against my father but, occasionally, I feel that that sweet light is the warmth of the sun."
    It was not the fire of the sun that Karna carried nor the absolute brilliance of Surya; to Karna, the sun was the imperfect charm that humans displayed.
    Indra, who saw the divinity of Surya himself in that form, gave Karna his spear. He had taken from this noble hero something greater than his life. Unless he gave something as compensation, his honor would be stained; above all--he was charmed with him: if it were this man, he could wield the greatest spear, that Indra had not given even to his own son.
    After, Karna sent off the Brahmin, having lost his armor (flesh), and headed to the battlefield, as thin as a ghost.
    The final battle with Arjuna. Karna was already without allies; his charioteer, whom he trusted with his body, was already an enemy, in collusion with the Pandavas.
    He had a large number of heavy burdens, his feelings towards his younger half-brothers.
    Due to his curse, the wheel of Karna's chariot was stuck in a rut. The string of Arjuna's bow was drawn back to its limits. These brothers who, for a long time, were manipulated by an unseen destiny to compete for supremacy, could only in this moment strike one another with all their might.
    --And sure enough, Arjuna's bow shot down the sun.
    It is said that after his death, Karna became one with his father Surya. Called "the hero of generosity," he was a saint with the creed of not refusing when people came to ask or rely on him. The hero who, while possessing exceedingly high abilities, was within a tragedy where he was the enemy of his brothers by blood, received various curses, and lost his life without showing his true worth--that is Karna.
    This is a digression, but it is impossible to determine if Arjuna knew the truth...that Karna was his older brother...or not.
    It seems the only people who knew that Karna was Kunti's son were Karna and Kunti, Krishna, and the sun god Surya.

    Karna, Son of the Sun God
    Karna, the invulnerable hero of the Indian epic Mahabharata. His personality is cold and unforgiving. Although conversing with him may give the impression that he is indecisive and somewhat boring, in reality he is always deep in thought and has a loyal heart. He gives an impression of being cold and cruel because he believes that most things and events are “normal”, and therefore he does not interfere. Due to this characteristic, he does not really have negative emotions such as hatred and jealousy. Because his behaviors target people’s “true nature that should not be put to words”, he is disliked by many.

    Karna was born between a human mother Kunti and the Sun God Surya. As proof of being the son of Surya, he was given a golden armor that granted invulnerability. However, Kunti abandoned Karna and became the queen of King Kuru. Not knowing who his mother was, Karna grew up with a low social status. However, he soon made his existence known to the world by becoming the honored guest of the Royal House Kauravas, who were hostile to King Kuru. Karna participated in the wars around the borders and fought on an equal footing with Arjuna, son of Kunti and Thunder God Indra. Karna eventually fell in battle after being robbed of his golden armor by Indra, suffering many curses, and losing all of his allies. He died in the hands of his half-brother Arjuna. However, he did not hate anyone and accepted his death.

    • Riding: A

    All vehicles and all beasts excepting those of Phantasmal Beast and Divine Beast-rank can be freely operated. His figure driving a war chariot and running across the battlefield is depicted in the Mahabharata. Its rank is high enough to have aptitude for the Rider Class.

    • Uncrowned Arms Mastership: N/A

    Arms competency that was not recognized by others due various reasons. To the opponents, the rank of his sword, spear, bow, Riding and Divinity appears to be one degree lower than what it actually is. If his true name is revealed, this effect will be terminated.

    • Mana Burst (Flames): A

    The power to put magical energy into weapons. In Karna's case, blazing flames become magical energy to dwell in the weapon used. This Skill is usually active and all the weapons that Karna grasps receive this effect.

    As the son of the Sun Deity Surya and having united with Surya after death, Karna possesses the highest Divine Spirit aptitude. This Divine Spirit aptitude exhibits high defensive power in regards to sun deity-lineage's Heroic Spirits of Divinity B or lower.

    Noble Phantasm

    • Kavacha & Kundala: O Sun, Become Armor

    The golden armor and earring given by Karna's mother, Kunti, who felt fear in becoming an unmarried mother and prayed to Surya to protect her son. A powerful defensive-type Noble Phantasm that emits the radiance of the sun. Because it's light itself taken shape, it is difficult to destroy even to the gods. It is integrated with Karna's body.

    • Brahmastra: O Brahma, Wrap the Earth

    An Anti-Army, Anti-Country Noble Phantasm granted to Karna by Parashurama of the Brahmin. If his Class is Archer it will be a bow, while under other Classes it will manifest as a different projectile weapon.

    • Brahmastra Kundala: O Brahma, Curse Me

    Karna's hidden Noble Phantasm. His trump card. The projectile weapon Brahmastra is bestowed with the sweltering heat effect of Karna's attribute and then fired. The Brahmastra, which already had a wide effective range to begin with, has its effective range further widened and its power exceptionally raised. Its performance is to the point of being compared to nuclear weapons.

    • Vasavi Shakti: O Sun, Abide to Death

    An one-shot only spear of light that takes down even gods. A spear of mortality made out of lightning. When Indra snatched away the golden armor, since Karna's posture was much too noble, he thought that it had to be rewarded. Manifested by converting the golden armor, in exchange of a tremendous defensive power, a spear with a powerful "anti-god" performance is equipped.

    Lancer of “Red” [Servant]
    One of the Servants of the Red camp. One of the great heroes that appears in the Ancient Indian epic poem, the “Mahabharata”. His true name is Karna. Since details about him have already been revealed in “Fate/EXTRA CCC” and the material book “Fate/EXTRA material”, I will only write about Karna as concerned with his appearance in “Apocrypha”.
    In the Great Holy Grail War, Karna is the Heroic Spirit who didn’t acknowledge Shirou Kotomine as his Master right till the very end. He continued to serve the Masters whose consciousness had been stolen until the end. He merely obeyed Shirou out of necessity in order to protect them; if it weren’t for that, he would have been an aloof Servant who would merely obey his Master’s desire to “obtain the Holy Grail”. He truly is a saint, although I get the feeling that, after having served with such an honest and faithful attitude, he said in the Moon Cell, “Then, this time I’m put together with a completely useless shut-in of a Master”, but who knows?
    This time, he had an abundant prana supply, so he was able to utilize his full power at full throttle, unlike anything seen previously. Honestly, I feel regret over maybe having gone too far with him. He acts as if damage is nothing to him thanks to his golden armor, he sends the enemy flying with his “Prana Burst, he’s covered in flames like a burning phoenix, and his divine spear releases a humongous explosion—in contrast to his modest attitude, it gave the impression that he was rampaging violently.
    He possesses power and skill that isn’t inferior to that of Achilles within the Red camp; truly a case of two star players in a single team. During the great battle in the second volume, Lancer of Black’s repeated attacks weren’t half-hearted at all, and any other Lancer besides Karna wouldn’t have been able to withstand it.
    Karna saw in Siegfried in the face of a pure warrior trying to carry out his duty even while feeling anguished by something. It seems it was similar to what he saw in the legendary bowman who he fought in the past.
    Also, originally in the Jumbo Jet Counter-Attack battle of volume 5, there were plans to have something like a ‘Massive Jumbo Jet Target Shooting scene where Karna readies himself and sticks his spear in the ground, and when Semiramis asks what he is doing, he says, “Weapons are unnecessary. A true hero kills with his eyes!”’, but it was too much of a ridiculous gag and it ended up being cut.
