ResurrectionWP (復活?) is the process of completely reviving a deceased being from death.


Resurrection is a miracle beyond even that possible through Magic,[1] and "complete resurrection" of the deceased has never been performed through Magic since ancient times.[2] The Magic of time travel, control over parallel worlds, and the Denial of Nothingness are known among magi as processes that can revive a deceased human.[3]

During the Age of Gods in which the existence of underworlds were prevalent, there was a separation between "physical death" and "spiritual death." It was possible for a soul to be taken from the body and later returned so long as the body was preserved, viewed as a type of medical treatment in some cultures. Should the soul have been destroyed before reaching its respective underworld, the body would eventually perish. The soul being taken to the underworld itself wasn't death, but rather the nothingness beyond that underworld was actual death.[4]

Known resurrections[]

  • Heracles' Noble Phantasm God Hand provides the three effects of resurrection, attack-nullification, and the ability of "immunity against an attack he has experienced previously."[5][6]
  • Eightfold Blessing of Amaterasu - Normally a divine treasure of the land of the dead that can even bring the deceased back to life, done by deploying boundaries that can isolate the principles active in the world of the dead, but the Servant form of Tamamo-no-Mae hasn't been granted the authority to use that much power.[7]
  • During the Age of Gods, Asclepius created resurrection medicine, Resurrection Fraught Hades, by utilizing Gorgon's blood granted by Athena and the blessing of Artemis. It is not something he is able to produce at will, requiring the several factors beyond just his medical skills. It was able to revive Hippolytus and Glaucus of CreteWP.[8]
  • Within the Babylonia Singularity, Ereshkigal facilitates the removal of souls from the bodies of the people of Uruk, including Gilgamesh. Through battle and negotiating with Ereshkigal in the underworld, they are able to return the souls to the preserved bodies.[9]
  • Goetia — As long as the Temple remains in Goetia's possession, the 72 Pillars will continuously revive, thus he is immortal; relinquishing possession of it causes the Pillars to be undone and makes Goetia vulnerable.[10]
  • Fou, utilizing centuries of accumulated energy, is able to revive the deceased Mash Kyrielight, transferring his Force of Providence to her at the cost of his power and consciousness. As he is not fully grown into Beast IV, it only has the ability to give her a normal human lifespan. Though beyond the capability of Magic, this act is only able to be performed due to her death being inside Solomon's Temple because "death in the Temple of Time doesn't quite count in reality."[1]
  • Queen of Sheba — In Salem Singularity, she was able to bring herself back from the dead after she was destroyed as a ghoul, but she would have faded away had Ritsuka Fujimaru not forged a contract with her in time.[11]
  • Michael Roa Valdamjong (Remake) — Using the power stolen from Arcueid Brunestud and magecraft, he can resurrect as long humans exist through Reincarnation.[12][13]
  • Touko Aozaki — Creates puppet copies of her body that are exactly identical to her original body. Exists in a state of superposition between all her copies at once, and will "wake up" in a new body if her current one is killed. Appears to have eternal youth in addition to this, and is speculated by Francesca Prelati to have attained some form of the Third Magic.[14]
  • Arcueid Brunestud (Remake) — Can create another body, even if the previous one has been completely destroyed. It can be considered a form of resurrection.[15][16]
  • Crimson Moon — Resurrected Merem Solomon by kissing him, after he was killed for not being able to bear manifesting several beasts, with Merem reincarnating as a Dead Apostle.[17] His Reality Marble has been left behind to spawn the True Ancestors, allowing them to inherit a "seed" on which he can imbed himself. Its purpose is so that when a True Ancestor reaches the same purity as him and body of his scale, the Reality Marble allow him to take over their bodies through spiritual possession. Roa considers this to be an inefficient method compared to his own means of resurrection, as it is hard for a being on such a scale to be brought into existence.[18]
  • Song of Grail - It is possible to revive Servants that are in a condition of "unable to battle" as long as a fragment of their Spiritual Core remains.[19]
  • Nezha — Through her Skill Spirit Pearl, which is not her Spiritual Core, but the Precious Pearl buried inside her that acts as the main part of her body. Therefore, Nezha will continue to resurrect unless this Precious Pearl is completely destroyed.
  • Francesca Prelati - Resurrects in a new body after death, which can be either male like her original body, or female.[14] Her exact methods are unknown, but she has persisted without apparent side effects for hundreds of years, and possesses "secret organs" within her chest that she displays to Orlando Reeve.[20]
  • The unnamed fourth Noble Phantasm of Alcides' King's Order embodying Heracles' Fourth Labor is the immortality of his mentor Chiron, who Heracles accidentally struck with an arrow tipped with Hydra poison. Unable to die but wracked with extreme pain, Chiron gave up his godhood, Heracles taking it to transfer it to Prometheus.[21] As a Noble Phantasm, it acts as a single resurrection.
  • Bazett Fraga McRemitz possess a Rune of Resurrection. It resurrects Bazett after suffering mortal wounds as soon set conditions are met, in her case as soon as her heart stops, while simultaneously healing her of those injuries. It is described by Rin as being Noble Phantasm-class magic.[22]
  • Anubis saved his father Osiris and bandaged him up, the first mummification which granted Anubis his Authority as the god of mummification and a minor Authority of revival, adding to the Authority of the underworld he already had.[23]
  • After the final battle with Doctor Heartless and Faker, Add is revived by a miracle thanks to Iskandar, who had become a Divine Spirit.[24]

    Class: Berserker
    Master: Illyasviel von Einzbern
    Alignment: Chaotic Mad
    Sex: Male
    Height: 253cm
    Weight: 311kg
    Weapon: Axe-Sword

    STR: A+
    CON: A
    AGI: A
    MGI: A
    LCK: B
    Noble Phantasm: A

    A demigod hero of Greek Mythology, he was born between the King of Gods Zeus and a human girl. He received the violent hatred of Zeus' wife Hera because of his origins and was tormented by the goddess at every turn. However, he entirely overcame the difficulties he had been given, and was enshrined as a god in the end.

    Heracles had an extremely violent temperament as an infant, and grew up as a shepherd in order to obtain a gentle heart. Having grown into a fine adult, Heracles was recognized for several feats, and gained two children as well as the right of succession to the throne. However, Hera made Heracles go temporarily insane and he killed his wife and children, ending up in the role of a slave to the king to atone for his sins. Here the jealous king gave him a challenge, the famous Twelve Labors. The Labors were all things that a human could not achieve but Heracles completed them safely, and at the same time he was freed from slavery, he received an immortal body.

    However, the adventures of Heracles and Hera's hatred did not end there. Hera's numerous artifices resulted in Heracles' poisoning by his own wife from his second marriage. In his final moments, Heracles cremated himself, surrendering to Zeus's judgment. The gods after consulting recognize Heracles' feats, and he was recruited as a god like his father, becoming a constellation.

    An excellent warrior, he possesses the qualifications corresponding to six classes excluding Caster. Other than specializing with the bow, he has mastered every weapon. However, all that is talk about times when he is not Berserker. Heracles as a Berserker has lost his rationality, and exists only to utterly defeat the enemy from the front as directed by Illya. Naturally, there is no such thing as detailed tactics, leaving it to physical ability and brandishing an axe-sword to strike. Astonishingly, with just that, it is a fact that he demonstrates hand-to-hand combat abilities superior to every Servant. Without breaking to even think about defense, he leaves it to his Noble Phantasm "God Hand."

    Class Abilities
    Mad Enhancements: B
    The Class Skill that characterizes Berserker, it reinforces ability at the cost of reason. As Heracles' possesses the skill at Rank B, in compensation for losing most of his sanity, the levels of all his abilities rise. Heracles beat his harp instructor to death when he was a child, and had many episodes when he killed people in his rage without even hearing them speak. It seems that for Heracles, Berserker that receives "Mad Enhancement" was an easy class to adapt to. Focusing on controllability when out of combat, the rank of "Mad Enhancement" is suppressed by Illya.

    Being close to the strongest Heroic Spirit, even restricted to simple direct melee as consequence of Mad Enhancement, Heracles was undoubtedly the strongest among the Servants. However, because of Mad Enhancement, a variety of sword techniques and skills, and a part of his Noble Phantasms was lost. Having his emotions also sealed off and not able to perform any personally motivated actions, only the reason within his core was not lost, having occasions when he felt something like the will to protect Illya.

    Personal Abilities
    Battle Continuation: A
    A skill that allows for the continuation of combat after sustaining mortal wounds. It will also reduce mortality rate from injury. Cú Chulainn’s Battle Continuation represents “never give up no matter what”, while Hercules’ represents the ability to survive. The Noble Phantasm that allows for resurrection after death, God Hand, has exceptional compatibility with the “will not die easily” skill Battle Continuation.
    The best result is achieved when a resilient body is combined with this skill.

    Eye of the Mind (False): B
    A danger avoidance ability based on Intuition/Sixth Sense, gained through many ordeals and adventures. Even though Hercules’ sanity was lost due to Mad Enhancement, this skill remained effective as it is nearly an instinct. When crossing swords with a seasoned swordsman like Artoria, he would not fall for half-hearted feints. It is such a troublesome ability for Hercules’ opponents.

    Although monstrous in size, Hercules has the highest rank in Agility. As a result, it is very difficult to corner him.

    Bravery: A+
    With his brave and daring spirit, Herakles is able to neutralise mental interference such as suppression, confusion and charm. However, under the influence of Mad Enhancement, this skill is unable to take effect. While operating correctly, Bravery also increases the damage inflicted upon the opponent during melee combat. This skill allowed Herakles to defeat several monsters empty-handed.

    Even the brave warrior’s heart was painted over by the insanity of Mad Enhancement.

    Divinity: A
    Being a mixed-race child of the King of Gods Zeus and a human, and becoming a god after death, Herakles naturally possessed the highest level of the Divinity skill. However, this matter became a disaster, ending with his complete entrapment in Gilgamesh's Noble Phantasm "Chains of Heaven" that grows in strength proportionate to the enemy's Divinity.

    Noble Phantasm
    God Hand: Twelve Labors
    Rank: B
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: -
    Maximum Targets:

    A blessing of Gods, as well as a curse. It is a Noble Phantasm given to Heracles, representing immortality. This Noble Phantasm does not have an overt external manifestation such as a weapon or armour, but if you hazard to put a shape to it, the body itself can be called the Noble Phantasm. God Hand turns one’s body into a tough suit of armour and nullifies all attacks Rank B or lower, regardless the attack being physical or magical. It also has the effect of automatic resurrection after death. Because the resurrection effect has 11 uses, Heracles cannot perish unless killed 12 times. In addition, due to Illya’s immense magical energy, given enough time, the lives lost can also be regenerated.

    Resurrection as well as attack-nullification. Besides these two effects, God Hand also possesses a third effect: rendering an attack that it has experienced before useless. Regardless how powerful is the Noble Phantasm that defeated Heracles, it would be completely nullified after he resurrects.

    Nine Lives: The Shooting Hundred Heads
    Rank: -
    Type: -
    Range: -
    Maximum Targets: -

    Among Hercules’Noble Phantasms, he trusted this one the most. It was the Noble Phantasm which Hercules used to slay the immortal nine-headed serpent Hydra once upon a time, taking the form of bow and arrow. After killing the Hydra, Hercules could even utilise techniques that emulate the ability of this Noble Phantasm when wielding other weapons. In essence, it is “a high speed attack consisting of nine consecutive strikes, as swift as if the attacks are overlapping”. Even when delivered via sword, spear, or axe, this technique still boasts power on the level of Noble Phantasms. Also, just like Cú Chulainn’s demonic spear Gae Bolg has a technique called “Gae Bolg – Piercing Death Thorn”, Hercules’ technique shares the “Nine Lives – Shooting of Hundred Heads” name with the Noble Phantasm.

    Shirou projected this secret sword technique while projecting Hercules’ Axe Sword, thus annihilating the Blackened Hercules. While summoned as a Berserker, Hercules could not use Nine Lives.

  6. [v] Comptiq 2006-06 issue - Fate Dojo Q & A:
    Q: Is Berserker's "immunity against an attack he has experience before" an ability of his Noble Phantasm?

    Q: Is Berserker's "immunity against an attack he has experience before" an ability of his Noble Phantasm, or is it due to his ability to see through the attack?

    A: The answer is that, it is a result of both the resilience of his body, as well as his techniques. God Hand has the ability to make Berserker's body immune against an attack after it has been damaged once by the said attack. Also, Berserker himself possesses the skill to see through an attack he has witnessed before. However, due to Mad Enhancement, this "technique of a swordsman" is sealed. As a result, he can only count on the ability of God Hand.

  7. [v] Fate/EXTRA - Tamamo-no-Mae (Caster) Matrix [T]

    Class: Caster
    Master: Player
    True Name: Tamamo-no-Mae
    Noble Phantasm: The Eightfold Blessing of Amaterasu
    Keyword: Maleficum, Red Lily of the Killing Stone of Nasu
    Strength: -, Defense: -, Agility: -, Magic: -, Luck: -
    Area Creation: C, Maleficium: EX, Transformation: A


    01 - The Eightfold Blessing of Amaterasu
    A mirror wielded by Tamamo-no-Mae. It is one of the sacred treasures brought down from the Heavens by the god Takehinateru-no-Mikoto and was oringally kept in the great shrine in the Izumo Province. According to passages in the Chronicles of Japan, the mirror was later moved to a site in the Kawachi district as the behest of the Imperial Court.

    The mirror is also known as Yata-no-Kagami and is frequently used in rites honoring the sun goddess Amaterasu. In addition to its importance in ritual observances, it is also thought to possess the power to bring the dead back from the afterlife. However, since Caster's rebirth as a Servant, this power is no longer accessible.

    02 - Maleficum
    The Witchcraft that Caster uses is all physical phenomena performed with her own body. While common Magecraft are programs that "recompose what exists around," Witchcraft are programs that "recompose the raw materials in one's own body."

    According to Caster's own word:

    "This time there is only one due to the constrains of the Moon Cell, but originally I could produce a million troops from my multiple tails!"

    That is really suspicious though.

    03 - Red Lily of the Killing Stone of Nasu
    This skill involves the use of the infamous Killing Stone of Nasu. After her death, Tamamo-no-Mae's spirit began to haunt the area around this stone and also imbued it with a terrible curse that killed any creature that came near it.

    Originally located in the Nasu highlands of Tochigi Prefecture, the stone was shattered by a virtuous monk by the name of Gennou who then scattered the peces across three places in Japan.
    It is believed that the shards of the rock evolved into fox spirits known in Japanese as kitsune and inukami. The legends go on to say that these newly-born spirits were bound as familiars by wizards powerful enough to establish contracts with the divine.

    02 - 呪術



    03 - 常世咲き裂く大殺界(ヒガンバナセッショウセキ)



    Territory Creation [C]
    This skill allows one to create a reality tailored specifically to their skills as a magus.
    Unfortunately for Tamamo-no-Mae, her personality is ill-suited for the task of manipulating reality and she has great difficulty even creating a small-scale crafting studio for creating minor amulets and other types of low-level talismans.

    Maleficium [EX]
    The sacred rituals of the Dakini goddesses. The rituals confer the abilities to perform such actions as foretell the time and place of one's death and manipulate the hearts and minds of both men and women. Due to a number of very harsh lessons impressed upon her in the past, Tamano-no-Mae no longer make use of her still formidable skills in these areas.

    Transformation [A]
    This refers to the abilities of either changing ones appearance or borrowing the physical form of another. As a kitsune, or fox spirit, Tamano-no-Mae is able to alter her appearance and even species at will. However, due to a traumatizing event in a past incarnation that resulted in her death and temporary damnation, she rarely, if ever, uses this ability.





    01 - Character Background
    In the final years of the Heian period, there was a beautiful courtesan in service to the Emperor Toba known as Tamamo-no-Mae. Born Misukume, she first entered the court as a servant at the age of 18, but quickly became a well-respected lady and a favorite of the emperor himself due to her incredible beauty and the depth of her intelligence.

    While the stories become somewhat murky on this point, the most widely excepted theory is that an itinerant fortune teller visiting Emperor Toba's court discovered Tamamo-no-Mae's true identity as a nine-tailed fox spirit. Tamamo-no-Mae was denounced as the cause of the emperor's lingering illness and was driven out of the palace and onto the plains of Nasu, where she was killed trying to defend herself against an army of 80,000 soldiers sent by the emperor. While no one knows exactly what happened to her afterwards, it is believed that she was transformed into the legendary killing stone.

    02 - "Dakini Deva"
    While Tamano-no-Mae is generally believed to be a nine-tailed fox spirit with many of the attributes associated with the tantric deities known as Dankini, she is frequently mistaken by many as one of the Inari or sometimes even a manifestation of Buddha.

    In the Fate/EXTRA universe, Tamamo-no-Mae is a soul that was created from the essence of the sun goddess Amaterasu, and as such is not merely a Earth spirit, but is actually a unique facet of the goddess from which she came. With this being said, it'd be a monumental mistake to classify her as one of the many human-spawned Legendary Souls.

    However, she was willingly embraced the role of a Legendary Soul so that she could, in her own words "become a good wife." By deliberately accepting the limits inherent in the role of Servant, many of her original powers have been sealed away.

    On a final note, as most deities are neither truly good nor evil, there are instances when Tamamo-no-Mae can be summoned as an evil spirit. Should this happen, she will transformed into a hideous monster capable of defeating a hundred heroes at once. In fact, when in this form, she is considered one of the Japan's Three Great Monsters.

    Introduction - Merem Solomon

    The Fifth of the Burial Agency. Number 20 of the 27 Dead Apostle Ancestors. In Ciel’s opinion, an annoying senior. Collects treasures from all ages and places.

    The reason he affiliates with the Burial Agency is supposedly in order to get closer to the sealed treasures of the Church.

    Originally, he was a divine child (planet terminal) that could manifest peoples’ wishes and communicate with animals. His arms and legs were torn off and worshiped in order to prevent him from ever leaving the village.

    The reason his limbs were cut off is because of the religious belief that a divine child must not take on a mortal’s form, and also qutie simply to prevent such a convenient tool from escaping.

    (His circumstances resemble those of a certain Angra Mainyu, but Merem actually is a divine child.)

    Merem would have simply lived the rest of his life as the villagers’ plaything, but was noticed by the Crimson Moon, who was coincidentally passing by.

    The Crimson Moon, who thought that “the power to put into shape the wishes of the people” was quite amusing, declared to the villagers that he would slaughter them all at dawn. “If you want to live, then use your wishes to try and kill me,” he said, and the game began.

    The villagers’ wishes, “We don’t want to die”, were truly ugly but strong.

    Without thinking of the burden on Merem, who manifested them into reality, the villagers kept on imagining “convenient divine beasts” to challenge the Crimson Moon.

    Of course, those kinds of beings could never win against the Crimson Moon.

    There was no end to the villagers’ wishes, but with only a little time left before daybreak, Merem reached his limit and died. The remaining villagers died, cursing Merem and the Crimson Moon.

    …After that.

    When the sun rose above the horizon, the Crimson Moon gave the dead Merem a big fat kiss, and revived him as a Dead Apostle.

    “How amusing. You may live as you see fit. You have drawn many pictures of what could replace your arms and legs, correct? The wishes of those others were ugly, but yours were masterpieces.

    ―――Idols like that would be adequate to bear the burden of being your limbs.”

    Entranced by the Crimson Moon’s words, Merem imagined four idols from the religious temple that the villagers built, gave them the power to be his limbs, and stood on the ground like a person for the first time.

    Afterwards, he held a kind of adoration towards the Crimson Moon, and became a Dead Apostle who swore his allegiance only to the Crimson Moon --- Brunestud.

    After the 27 Ancestors’ separation from the True Ancestors and the Crimson Moon’s demise, it was assumed that he went into reclusion, but for some reason he began to affiliate with their enemy, the Holy Church .

    Introduction: Demonition

    Merem’s special power. A first-ranked spiritual evocation power.

    It is able to embody others’ wishes, but interestingly enough, not his own. Merem possesses a truly strong power, but can’t do anything by himself. In all senses, he’s like a demon himself.

    While it resembles the manifestation of fantasies, Merem’s demon summoning takes the wishes of people as a model, and makes something similar after applying his own dreams.

    The demons’ powers are warped by peoples’ images, but the mold itself is done by Merem’s image of it. Also, the magnitude of their power changes based on Merem’s prana input.

    Given Merem’s personality, he’s not good at manifesting realistic or calculating demons.

    In the end, he’s just a Peter Pan living in a fantasy world. The drawings he’s good at and the fantasies that he wants to draw are “the type of demons that you’d see in a fairy tale”.

    Source: Tsukihime Dokuhon “talk”

    He appears in a small episode several years after Tsukihime.

    A one-man monster battle. He’s related to King Solomon in name only.

    Although it’s just a plan, he’s planned to appear in “the dark six”. …Really, I wonder what kind of story it’ll become…
