Rider (ライダー, Raidā?) is a Rider-class Servant summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.



Rider's True Name is Sakata Kintoki (坂田金時?), known by his famous childhood name, Kintarou (金太郎, Kintarō?). He was one of Minamoto no Yorimitsu's Four Heavenly Kings. There are many legends about him, but no historical records to support them. He is the son of Raijin as a red dragon, and his mother is a cannibal mountain witch living on Mount Ashigara (足柄山, Ashigara-yama?). Kintoki was raised with the strength of a monster, fighting and killing beasts in the mountain. Eventually, his mother, an ogress, was vanquished by Usui Sadamitsu, but Kintoki, taken to Minamoto no Yorimitsu, was taught the way of man, and became his retainer. He participated in many hunts for demons as one of the Four Heavenly Kings of Yorimitsu. He is famous for the episode of the battle against Shuten-douji on Ooe-yama, where he disguised himself as mountain priest, drugged Shuten-douji's alcohol and struck him down. In that episode, he fell in love with the demon Shuten-douji disguised as a beautiful girl, and then had to carry this burden for the rest of his life.[2]



Only individuals who share a deep fate with Kintoki - such as Minamoto Raikou (who was like a mother or older sister that delivered him unconditional love), Shuten-douji (who once fought him to the death while being charmed by each other) and Ibaraki-douji (who bared fangs at him due her excessive feelings for Shuten) - rush on him.[1]

Still, it is not like Kintoki dislikes them entirely. Both Raikou and Shuten are fellows whom he tied deep bonds and feelings with each other once; without a doubt, existences who occupy a large portion of his heart. He simply is not very good at taking a hold of a sense of distance now that they have manifested in this world.[1]


Fate/Grand OrderEdit



As a result of an ambiguous interpretation of the term "rider", he is equipped with an original design of Rider Belt. He fights with his fists and feet, using lightning to empower his strikes. His Noble Phantasms are Golden Drive and Golden Drive ・ Good Night.
