Lancer (ランサー, Ransā?) is a Lancer-class Servant summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.





Li Shuwen with his heyday body, summoned as a Lancer.[1]


To put him in a few words, a blade that cuts sharply upon being touched. Li Shuwen has regained his youth; therefore, he is equipped with a condition where his rough nature is laid bare in the open. On the topic of one having attained their youth to some extent after becoming, more or less, heroes, there are many people who will have that sort of breezy feeling of feeling young again, but for Li Shuwen in particular, that nature is stronger within him.[2]

At the time of having grown old, he was intimate with children as the “grandpa who taught them boxing”, but Li Shuwen as he is now swings his evil fist of his own accord, devoting everything he has to fight a formidable and tough enemy, and being a martial artist with even some austere sense.[2]

Fundamentally, he would fight with anybody who is a strong Servant, but the one who he wishes to fight the most—is the elder Li Shuwen.[1]



What resulted of the last bout in the fifth chapter? It is not clear because of the Human Order correction.[2]

Wong Fei-hung
In the history of Chinese martial arts, this person is the master standing at the highest peak. Imagining about that special move which leaves not even a shadow behind, Li Shuwen wonders how closely it can reach him, so he will not calm down unless he kills that hero, even if he is only dreaming of such a moment.[2]


Fate/Grand OrderEdit

E Pluribus Unum: The Grand Battle of Legends in North AmericaEdit

Li Shuwen is neutral towards the conflict between the Celts, the Americans, and the Resistance, only wanting to fight Scáthach. He later encounters her, along with Ritsuka, Mash Kyrielight, while fighting Shadow Servants summoned by Medb, the Celtic queen, near their camp. He introduces himself to Scáthach and challenges her to a duel. She refuses however unless he can defeat Mash, otherwise he must leave. After fighting Mash to a standstill, Li Shuwen sees the group stands a chance against the Celtic. He then requests Scáthach to fight him at the end regardless of the world’s state. After she accepts his requests, he says Thomas Edison, the President-King of American, seems to be possessed by something. He later participates in the climatic battle between the Celts and the Americans, having complied with Scáthach's request to aid the Americans. He fights Beowulf until Clan Calatin bursts from the ground, having been summoned by Medb. He assists against them until they're destroyed by Arjuna's Pashupata. He later meets Scáthach in Land of the Shadows, and the two begin their appointed duel.

Salomon: The Grand Time TempleEdit

Li Shuwen is one of the "E Pluribus Unum" Singularity Servants that appear to aid the Protagonist.

Journey to the WestEdit

Li Shuwen is Sha Wujing, a disciple of Xuanzang Sanzang. He is found under a rock after Sanzang recruits David (playing Zhu Bajie) as a disciple. After the group defeat the monsters after him and David, Li Shuwen is recruited by Sanzang as another disciple followed by recruiting Lu Bu (playing the role of White Dragon Horse) as her horse. While traveling west, the group enter the lair of Stheno and Euryale (playing Golden Horned King and Sliver Horned King respectively), the Lotus Cave after Sanzang is lead there by the scent of fruit. The pair call upon Medusa (playing Bronze Horn) to fight the group. Li Shwen's will to fight her falters though upon seeing her, pitying her as someone who needs to saved. He is encouraged by Sanzang not to fall for their tricks, and he helps defeat the trio. After Stheno and Euryale retreat, the group eat themselves with the food in the cave, and take its treasures. After Medusa leaves grateful for Sanzang giving her a chance of redemption, the group continue their journey. They soon encounter and defeat Mordred (playing Red Boy). Afterwards, the group arrive at the Flaming Mountains, which Sanzang says need to be crossed to reach Tianzhu. After Sanzang fails to cross the flames, the group fight and defeat demons. It is then revealed Li Shuwen and David were only following Sanzang half-heartedly for the chance to fight strong opponents. The group then encounter a woman who calls Sanzang inadequate as a follower of Buddha. Li Shuwen identifies the woman as Nezha, which causes Sanzang to remember they need the Banana Leaf Fan, Princess Iron Fan's Noble Phantasm, to cross the Flaming Mountains. The group eventually arrive at Iron Fan's residence, the Banana Leaf Cave, in order to obtain the Banana Leaf Fan. After obtaining the fan (oddly looking like Excalibur) through combat with Florence Nightingale (who plays Iron Fan), they return to the Flaming Mountain and extinguish its flames. Later, they meet Artoria Alter (playing Ox-Demon King), who claims the collecting of the scriptures is a test from Buddha. The group help Sanzang fight her when Artoria Alter decides to force Sanzang understand it doesn't matter who recites the scriptures. Afterwards, they arrive at River Ganges, where they encounter and defeat Karna and Arjuna (playing guardians of the Underworld according to Nezha) after Sanzang remembers she is a Servant summoned by Chaldea who refused the summon. Afterwards, as everyone begins to rayshift back to Chaldea with the journey now over, Li Shuwen's spearmanship is praised by Sanzang. She also thanks him for keeping her from crying with his levelheadedness before he disappears.


While summoned as Lancer, there are no special changes in his basic performance.[1] He still retains the ability of a Bajiquan master and could battle as effectively with bare fists.

The golden age of his body has naturally his younger days as standard, but it is possible to conjecture that his martial arts reached its golden age when he approached old age.[1]

Chinese Martial Arts (Liu He Da Qiang) (中国武術(六合大槍)?) (Rank A++): A Chinese rationality. A count of how much one has mastered the martial arts that made becoming one with the universe its objective. The degree of difficulty for learning this is of the highest level and, unlike other Skills, A Rank is finally at a level one can say to have "learned it". Upon reaching +++, one is an expert among experts. While summoned as a Lancer, he has mastered the Bajiquan - including spearmanship.[1]

Sphere Boundary (Rank B): A technique that uses Qi to perceive the state of affairs in the environment around oneself, while also, having their own existence disappear. By mastering this to achieve a state of oneness with the universe, it becomes possible to even have one’s figure become naturally transparent. Due to being summoned as a Lancer this time, his usage of Sphere Boundary has not reached a complete Presence Concealment like before.[2]

Juezhao (Rank B): The secrets of Bajiquan that Li Shuwen had learned. With regards to Anti-Unit abilities, this is certainly said to be the ultimate one among them.[2]

Li's Noble Phantasm is God Spear, No Second Strike, an Anti-Unit attack that is more similar to a technical skill but has been sublimated as a Noble Phantasm. Unlike his Assassin version, Li uses his spear for the attack, increasing its range.
