Saber Alter (セイバー・オルタ, Seibā Oruta?) is the Saber-class Servant of Sakura Matou in the Fifth Holy Grail War of Fate/stay night's Heaven's Feel route. She is a changed version of Saber after being consumed and blackened by the mud from the Shadow.

She is one of the Servants summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Identity[edit | edit source]

Saber's True Name is Artoria Pendragon (Alter), also known as Artoria Alter (アルトリア・オルタ, Arutoria Oruta?), and better known as Arthur Pendragon/King Arthur. In history, he/she is a different figure that may not have been known to others as possibly being the legendary King Arthur himself. Accompanied with her inversion, the holy sword Excalibur is also dyed in the attribute of evil, turning into a jet black sword. It seems that Excalibur, a sword gifted from the fairies, has the possibility of possessing both attributes of good and evil as well; there exists Vivian, the Fairy of the Lake who possesses the attribute of good, and Morgan, who exists as the antithesis to Vivian that possesses the attribute of evil. In addition, in Artoria Alter's Fate/Grand Order Interlude, Vortigern, who was criticized as the "look-alike of Vortigern, the late Vile King of ancient times" from a certain person (Servant), was a figure who usurped the throne of Britain and was the older brother of King Uther, the father of Arthur.[1]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Corrupted by Angra Mainyu, Artoria Alter is vastly different from her normal self. She is also called Black Saber (黒セイバー, Kuro Seibā?).

The results of her alteration is not only within Artoria Alter's interior but also extends to her outward appearance. The color of her skin becomes pale, and the pupil of her eyes that were at first concealed behind a black visor during the moment of her summoning becomes golden from her original green eye color as well.[1]

Because the armor she wears was dyed jet black and grew in weight due to changing into a heavier armor, its power has increased more than normally.[1][2]

  • In Fate/hollow ataraxia, she wears her casual clothes; a gothic dress called Alter Gothic Dress (オルタ・ゴシックドレス, Oruta Goshikku Doresu?).


Personality[edit | edit source]

A different aspect of the King of Knights devoted to cruelty, greatly unlike the case of the normal Artoria. She is referred to as Saber Alter.[1] A behavior without futility, a cold-hearted personality that makes Artoria seem like a different person, but if one is to carefully come into contact with her, they might notice that what lies at the basis is still the same.[2]

Artoria Alter's personality changes vastly from her normal self upon being corrupted by Angra Mainyu, but she cannot be called a villain. She is more of a dark hero who is still an idealist clinging to her own values even after being blackened.[5]

After taking in by the hatred of the curse, Artoria Alter comes to the realization that the duty of a hero is to be hated and ostracized, that a hero's only duty is to cut down foes using all their strength. She believes that she was prepared for such an outcome upon drawing Caliburn, and decides to entrust her blade to All the World's Evils. While she still takes her duty as king seriously, believing it is her obligation to those whose lives were lost because of her, she no longer believes in the ideals set for herself and her people. The end was concluded long ago, after all her prayers and glory vanished on the hill in Camlann.

While alive, Artoria did not fall into the path of evil even once, but she too had doubts, inner conflicts, hatred towards herself and grief towards the surroundings.[2] This figure, influenced by the curse of the Holy Grail, is someone that had such issues hidden within her raised to the surface and caused her "policy" to go inverse.[1][2]

Because a section of her character's attributes has been inverted, the basis of Artoria Alter's character speak words and display deeds like those of a "tyrant's", which is the exact opposite of her usual character, but there is no change in her goals and ideals themselves, and it seems she shows a bit of her original self as her feelings towards the people who are close to her have been left behind and intact, although barely.[1][2] The usual Artoria persisted in being chaste for the sake of her ideals, but this Artoria approves tyrannical rule for the sake of her ideals.[2]

Having been violated by the curse of the Holy Grail, this is a side of the King of Knights, a tyrant that persisted in being heartless. Maybe, the "ideal king" that King Arthur pursued was something like this after all.[2]

Maybe because her Magic Core goes outside the scale, but at any rate, Artoria Alter is a Servant that eats a lot. The dragon is a glutton.[2] In addition, even her food preferences, which could be regarded as her identity, have changed: she spits out cooking with courteous, elaborate, abstruse tastes as bad and chews down large quantities of junk food.[1][2] A new identity for Artoria who came into contact with the foundation of foreign cultures, as if food culture has become a Heroic Spirit. Concerning her who has an evil heart that is outside of the norm, meals become nothing but refreshing fuel, and it seems the manner of being able to eat food in a simple way is desirable for her.[1] Awful eating habits, but she herself seems greatly satisfied, so maybe this can be called a form of happiness.[2]

Concerning her motive on what to wish for on the Holy Grail and what rouses her to pursue it, it is no different from Artoria's. However, affirming her strength to the point of committing atrocities, she not only responds to the desires of a Master wishing for a strong Servant because of their objective to fight and save the world, but she responds to also do battle against the Master's more repulsive enemies and the more powerful adversaries, as well as to train the Master in improving their skills. Her methods surely differs, but her approach to guiding and understanding the Master is certainly Artoria Pendragon's. In addition, in the world of Fate/Grand Order, her existence as a Servant is separate from Artoria Pendragon's, and Artoria is no longer consumed by the blackening caused by the curse of the Holy Grail.[1]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Artoria Alter is mostly emotionless towards the situation of Shirou, Rin, and Sakura. While she seems to hold favor for Shirou and Rin coming out victorious, she is largely apathetic towards the entire situation. In the case of the battle going wrong, she doesn't care about the victor and can only hold a slight amount of pity towards those left alive. She feels a connection to Sakura as someone who has felt similar despair.

Artoria Series
An Artoria understands aspects of her self, but no matter how Artoria Alter looks at it, there are way too many of her. Secretly, she is shocked.[1]
The Heroic Spirits of the Round Table
It goes without saying. No matter where, seeing the troubled Agravain makes Artoria Alter laugh.[1]
Jeanne Alter
Views her as an interesting fellow. Though wicked, she is not very honest with her feelings. The root may be that unchanging Jeanne, but she rocks. "Kuku. That woman is the type that is quick to respond."[1]
Shirou Emiya
Artoria Alter holds no particular issues with fighting with Shirou, as she neither actively desires it nor is against it. She simply follows Sakura's orders without any deviation, so she will only attack when she is ordered. She does get angry when Shirou isn't putting his all into fighting her, going as far to ask if that is all she meant to him. She is pleased with his victory over her in Sparks Liner High, even urging him to kill her before she can regenerate, but quickly falls back into her apathetic state upon seeing the result of the battle on him. She simply states it is her victory, and compares him to all of her other enemies who had risked their lives and died meaninglessly.

Role[edit | edit source]

Fate/stay night[edit | edit source]

Heaven's Feel[edit | edit source]

In the Heaven's Feel route, the first three days are the same as the Fate route, but the damage Saber receives from Berserker does not weigh heavily on Shirou's mind. After Saber gives her the explanation of the basics of the Holy Grail War, the topic of Illya and the Einzberns is brought up. Saber contemplates on explaining due to Shirou's confusion over Illya's hostility, instead telling Shirou to seek out the answers from Kotomine Kirei even though she wishes to have little contact with the priest. This line of conversation leads to the revelation of her connection to Kiritsugu in the previous war and her reason for disliking Kirei as a former enemy Master. Despite her dislike, she firmly believes Kirei is someone who will answer any questions clearly asked of him. As they head to the church, she suggests that Shirou not reveal the same Servant was summoned twice. After he comes back out after learning the answers, Shirou finds Saber's worried reaction funny, and also causes him to wish to reaffirm their contract as allies.

In the movie adaptation, Shirou isn't carried back home following the encounter with Berserker, instead he's lied on a park bench while he heals. Saber doesn't explain the basics of the war, only convincing Shirou not to endanger his life again. Shirou and Saber's visitation to the church occurs after their encounter with Rider, which follows their encounter with Berserker. There Shirou learns from Saber of her connection to Kiritsugu in the previous war, and Kiritsugu's role in said war from Kirei. After he comes back out learning the answers, Shirou and Saber properly introduce themselves, and affirm their contract as allies.

Shirou and Saber decide to patrol together at night, and then give a false explanation to Taiga and Sakura about why Saber is staying at the Emiya Residence. They begin their patrols that night, and Saber senses that someone is being drained by a Servant. They come upon Rider and Shinji Matou preying upon a woman for energy. Saber quickly engages and dispatches Rider easily, but Zouken Matou appears before they can deal with Shinji. Shirou is eventually appeased with Zouken taking charge of Shinji, although Saber is reluctant to let Shirou near him due to him being inhuman. Although she wishes to continue fighting, she stays her hand to help save the woman's life, and they bring her to the church for healing. As they discuss the situation, Shirou makes a clear resolution to end the war, and Saber says that she will never betray his trust.

In the movie adaptation, the encounter with Rider occurs after Shirou and Saber's encounter with Berserker while they're heading home. The woman that Rider is feeding on is Ayako Mitsuzuri. Saber doesn't say anything following Rider's defeat when Shinji is torturing Rider. She doesn't say anything about Zouken, only keeping Shirou away from him. After Shinji and Zouken leave, Shirou becomes curious about Illya's hostility, to which Saber responds that Kirei could provide the answers. Shirou decides to do just that as he carries the unconscious Ayako with him.

The next morning, Saber and Shirou argue about where she should sleep and him continuing to go to school normally despite the potential danger without her being able to be by his side due to being unable to enter spiritual form. After Shirou returns home, he finds Saber with Taiga, and the discussion of their sleeping arrangements leads to a misunderstanding. They continue their patrols that night, planning to check Ryuudou Temple due to information about a Master and Servant being there from Rin Tohsaka. Saber agrees with a direct attack, but they find little upon arriving at the mountain other than Saber briefly seeing the katana of the recently killed Assassin before it fades away. As they make their way into the temple, they find Caster standing over the body of Souichirou Kuzuki. Before Saber can charge, Shirou warns her of the ominous feeling he gets from Rule Breaker, but she attacks in anger after believing Caster to have killed her own Master. Caster then regains her composure and attacks Saber, only to be easily cut down as Saber negates her spells. They decide to contact Kotomine to heal the residents of the temple and return home for the night.

In the movie adaptation, Shirou and Saber do not investigate Ryuudou Temple until the movie's climax. As such Saber doesn't see Assassin's disappearing katana nor does she kill Caster as punishment for killing her own Master. The killing of both Kuzuki and Caster is instead done by True Assassin.

Shirou is left sick the next day due to Rider, as Sakura's Servant, using Breaker Gorgon on him and taking his energy.[6]


Fate/hollow ataraxia[edit | edit source]

Saber Alter appears in the prologue as a Servant of the Edelfelt sisters in the recreated Fifth Holy Grail War. She, along with the original Saber, kills both Bazett and Avenger.

Saber Alter appears again in a comedic scenario when Shirou plucks her ahoge in an attempt to find her Reverse Scale. After getting a new set of clothes from Rin, Saber eats a meal cooked by Shirou, but she spits it out, much to Shirou's great dismay. However, Saber Alter pleasantly eats the hamburgers made by Shirou at Rin's suggestion.

Fate/unlimited codes[edit | edit source]

Saber Alter becomes Sakura's Servant.

Saber Alter is known as the Dark-Tainted Tyrant (闇に染まりし暴君, Yami ni Somarishi Bōkun?). Her story begins after Saber is corrupted by Dark Sakura, realizing that the hatred now corrupting her is the true form of the Holy Grail she was seeking. She decides to take up All the World's Evils, entrusting her blade to it. Sakura asks her how it feels to be reborn as her Servant, and Saber says that it feels like she has awoken from a very long dream, finally prepared to face the reality she had long since ignored. Sakura is surprised that someone of Saber's stature conforms to her so well. Saber believes that, as a king who believed in the ideals of her people and then sacrificed herself for those ideals, she is in the best position to truly understand despair. She decides to make her sword Sakura's own in order to sow the hopelessness she desires.

Saber Alter eventually encounters Shirou, telling him that she will destroy all who pass. She believes such a warning to be pointless considering that he would never simply walk away from the fight. He notes that Saber has yet to make a move to kill him, but she simply refutes that she will not attack until he steps before her. Upon taking his battle stance with Kanshou and Bakuya, she asks if he does not intend to copy her sword instead. Such things do not matter, as she is simply surprised that he has taken arms. Considering it to be an act of hostility, they battle with her coming out as the victor.

Saber Alter defeating her old self.

After having collected all the Servants within Sakura, she notes that Saber Alter has been draining twice the magical energy from her for some time. Saber Alter is confused, until her original personality manifests itself. She claims that she has not yet rid herself of her old self, and her old self claims that she is what she would have been like on the wrong path. Saber Alter believes that is twisted logic, and asks that even if she were to be defeated, would her old self be able to handle the fact that Shirou was killed by her own hands. She tells her old self that she will not remain, that she and her ideals will be given eternal despair.

Saber emerges victorious over her old self, and she tells the King of Knights not to cry, lest even she may tear up. Her old self asks how it could end as such, but she simply says that it is not the end. It had already concluded long ago, all of her prayers and glory vanishing on the hill in Camlann. As her old self fades, Saber Alter tells her to close her eyes before true despair, the birth of Angra Mainyu, presents itself to her. Saber Alter says to sleep soundly, for she is the light inside of her.

Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]

Fuyuki: The Contaminated City in Flames[edit | edit source]

Artoria Alter is a Servant in the prologue "The Contaminated City in Flames" who is guarding the center of Fuyuki City's Greater Grail and has a strong link to it. She appears as a Heroic Spirit in Fate/Grand Order, and it seems that Artoria was cursed by the Holy Grail in this prologue.[1] She received a Holy Grail from Lev Lainur Flauros, and she tried to maintain this Singularity by restarting the Holy Grail War, thus bringing unnecessary trouble for Lev.[7] She fights Ritsuka Fujimaru and Mash Kyrielight and is finally killed by Cu Chulainn.

Miss Almost Weekly Santa Alter[edit | edit source]

As Santa Alter, she introduces herself to Ritsuka after they were transported to a snowy field, and explains that she wishes to deliver presents to all to express her daily gratitude. However, she has no reindeer to pull her sleigh so she can deliver the presents due to scaring the reindeer off by using Excalibur Morgan as a jet engine. Santa Alter then reveals that she summoned Ritsuka to the snowy field for purpose of making them her reindeer. After defeating a group of monsters, Santa Alter and Ritsuka sent off to deliver the presents.

As they towards their first destination, Santa Alter opens a letter from Darius, but the writing is too black and smeared for her to read it. Deciding that she'll figure out what present to give to Darius when she meets, Santa Alter and Ritsuka fly to their first delivery. Arriving at her destination, Santa Alter takes notice of The Phantom of the Opera and Lu Bu's lamentations, and decides to give them presents out of pity. Revealing herself to The Phantom and Lu Bu, she asks where Darius is, which causes Darius III, who she mistook for a candle tree, to call out to her. The Phantom, Lu Bu, and Darius prepare to attack her, with her taking the fight outside. After defeating them, Santa Alter asks if they learned their lesson, and then she proceeds to give out presents to all of them.

Flying to her next destination, Santa Alter reads aloud a letter from Marie that states she would like a present that you'll make her two friends stop fight with another. Chastising Marie for asking her for such an impossible present, Santa Alter says that Marie should picked out a present herself if she wished to bring her friends together. She then goes to tell the story of how she got two knights to stop fighting in public, but then she is confronted by Astolfo, who signals Marie Antoinette down below to fire at Santa Alter. Crash-landing after being shot down by Marie, she is threaten by Chevalier d'Eon, but she decides to fight them and Marie after considering both to be thieves. After defeating Marie and d'Eon, Santa Alter asks Marie is the same one that sent the letter, which Marie confirms. Seeing that the situation was a misunderstanding, she proceeds to hand out presents to Marie and d'Eon after asking d'Eon about French men's attire. After requesting d'Eon to give her their contact info, Santa Alter takes her leave, ignoring the eagerly waiting Astolfo. As she flies off, Santa Alter tells Astolfo that he doesn't get a present since he failed to help at Orleans, but she does throw an expired Halloween pumpkin at him.

Walking through a snowy field, Santa Alter states that her next delivery is for Jean Kay, who is currently living in a nearby cave due to her profession as a assassin. She is then asked by Ritsuka if she meant Jing Ke, to which she answers that she doesn't speak Chinese. She then asks Ritsuka if they hear a strange sound, which they decide to follow into the cave. Inside they find Saint Martha punching a sandbag as she complains about Christmas, and Ushiwakamaru talking of her past of giving grotesque gifts that no one wanted. Santa Alter then asks Martha about Jing Ke, but Martha tells her and Ritsuka to leave after having some warm soup. Refusing to do so, Santa Alter ask Ushiwakamaru, but Jing Ke comes out before Ushiwakamaru is able to answer. Finding Jing Ke to be drunk, Santa Alter and Ritsuka after told by Ushiwakamaru that Jing Ke started drinking after traumatic event ten days ago. Saddened that she couldn't arrive sooner, Santa Alter tries to deliver her presents, but she is attacked by Martha, Ushiwakamaru, and Jing Ke when she states that she's Santa Claus. After defeating them, she asks them to her about their issue with Santa Claus, and she is told that another Santa Claus confiscitated their belongings after they failed to pay for their presents. After expressing her grievance over their story, Santa Alter proceeds to give out presents to the three women. Surprised that another Santa Claus was able to deceive them, she proceeds to leave with Ritsuka for their next destination.

Leaving behind Ritsuka and her sleigh behind in the sky due to a storm, Santa Alter lands on a ship being occupied by EMIYA, David, and Robin Hood. She then decides to test David's strength to prove his claim of being most victorious king before handing out presents. After defeating David along with EMIYA and Robin, Santa Alter tells them that she came in response to a letter. Robin eventually reveals he sent the letter, for which Santa Alter tells him not to be embrassed as he has worked hard. After praising Robin for supporting his Master from the shadows, and criticizing EMIYA for spoiling his Master, she gives the presents to David and Robin. She then tells the group that their real present is being prepared elsewhere and will arrive soon before leaving. Returning to her sleigh, and Ritsuka, Santa Alter hears Elizabeth Báthory performing her concert for the three Archers. After being welcomed back by Ritsuka, she is shocked to see that the next letter is from Gilgamesh.

Arriving at Gilgamesh's house, Santa Alter thinks about him waiting for her arrival, but decides to return to her sleigh and take the night off. As she think about the food she and Ritsuka could eat on their day off, both of them are suddenly drawn towards Nursery Rhyme and Jack the Ripper. After hearing that the two brought her into their inner world due to their loneliness, Santa Alter believes them to be the spirits of young girls that died while ignorant of love, and believes that they gained a sense of self during Christmas due to their loneliness. She then says that she can't give them presents since neither of them wrote letters to Santa, and tells them that they should want something because they want it, not because of their loneliness. She then has the two of them fight her for their presents since they didn't write letters. However, even though she defeats them, Santa Alter decides to take pity on Nursery Rhyme and Jack by pretending that they defeated her in a exaggerated fashion. Congratulating them on their "victory", she proceeds to give several presents to Jack and Nursery Rhyme, calling them merely the spoils of their "victory". She then gives each of them their individual presents. She proceeds to leave, but is stopped by Jack, who thanks her with Nursery Rhyme. She is then told by both of them that another Santa Claus visited them before she arrived, but they left after telling them to wait for the real Santa. Returning to the sky, Santa Alter decides to punish the other Santa before delivering her last present.

Santa Alter soon confronts the other Santa, Julius Caesar, who proceeds to tell her and Ritsuka about how he deceived her previous deliveries due to them thinking he was Santa. After hearing his story, Santa Alter decides to kill Caesar for the sake of Santa Claus. After defeating him in battle, she proceeds to go finish him off, but Caesar is able to escape. With the matter of the other Santa resolved, Santa Alter goes to deliver her last present.

Heading towards her final delivery, Santa Alter states that the last letter is from an Alter Servant like her, who requested a board game everyone can have fun playing together. Arriving at the location, Santa Alter is confronted by Jeanne Alter, who proceeds to threaten Ritsuka for her defeat before. Santa Alter then says how shocked she saw that Jeanne Alter wrote a letter to Santa Claus, surprised by her wanting a present despite her hatred, and her easy-to-read handwriting since she can't write. After Jeanne Alter explains how she studied how to write, she asks why Santa Alter is calling herself Santa, and tells her to bring out the real Santa Claus. Santa Alter then tells how she has delivered many presents despite her not being a saint, and says that she originally started being Santa to throw Jeanne Alter's present in her face. Believing Santa Alter to be pranking her due to thinking that she's lonely, Jeanne Alter proceeds to show her that was been playing a board game with the anguished spirits of Pierre Cauchon. After seeing Jeanne Alter cheat at the game to regain first place, Santa Alter tells her that she won't make any friends nor become a Servant if she doesn't her repent her ways. Jeanne Alter doesn't want to be a Servant however, and she doesn't want anyone's help, especially Ritsuka's. Hearing this, Santa Alter decides to fight Jeanne Alter, who fights along with spirits of Pierre. After defeating her, Santa Alter states that Jeanne Alter won't change no matter how many times she loses, and that she must be defeated mentally. She then give Jeanne Alter her present, which makes Jeanne Alter resolve to build up her Spirit Origin and become a Servant before returning to purgatory with the spirits of Pierre. With her final delivery complete, Santa Alter thanks Ritsuka for their hard work, and then proceeds to grants them the chance to summon her.

The Second Generation is Alter-chan ~2016 Christmas~[edit | edit source]

Santa Alter attacks Alter Lily with Excalibur Morgan when the latter sneaks into her room to demand her sack, thinking she was Jeanne Alter. She then goes back to sleep deciding to ignore that Alter Lily's voice was younger. She later enters Ritsuka's room and demands to speak with them and Jeanne d'Arc alone upon seeing Alter Lily. She tells Mash to play her, and threatens Alter Lily when she refuses. She reveals that Alter Lily would disappear in her current state. In order to maintain her body as Servant, she needed to become something. However, Alter Lily wanted to become Santa, even though children shouldn't. Thus, Ritsuka devised a plan that would help Alter Lily realize her desire under the guise of making her Santa. After returning from their discussion, Santa Alter decides to give her sack to Alter Lily if she proves her worth as Santa in the combat simulator. Alter Lily barely passes, so Santa Alter gives her her sack.

Santa Alter appears at the end as Alter Lily watches the sea with Nursery Rhyme and Jack the Ripper. She thought Alter Lily would realize her own desires after delivering two or three presents, but she underestimated her stubbornness. She also figured out Jeanne's wish to see the sea, and asked Nursery Rhyme and Jack to help grant. She reveals the plan would've taken a different approach if Alter Lily gave up after an obstacle or two, but the latter continued to trudge forward. She, Jeanne, and Amakusa Shirou then tell Mash that it wasn't them who conceived the plan. After Ritsuka is revealed to be the mastermind, Santa Alte reveals it was also their plan to make it look like Llamrei II's engine broke after it crashed. However, no one told Mash about the plan since she cannot lie. Santa Alter also confesses Romani Archaman was in on the plan. She agrees with Jeanne and Amkausa Shioru that EMIYA is experienced in apologizing to girls after he tells Ritsuka to do the same for Mash. She then hides with everyone expect Ritsuka when Alter Lily comes to talk with then.

Shinjuku Phantom Spirit Incident: Malignant Quarantined Demonic Realm[edit | edit source]

Artoria Alter arriving on her motorcycle to help Ritsuka

Artoria Alter establishes her own territory in Shinjuku following her summoning after forming a truce with Jeanne Alter to leave each other alone. She established a burger shop as her hideout, and adopts a stray dog she names Cavall II. At some point, she fought Baal under the guise of James Moriarty. She learns he and Hessian Lobo are members of an alliance of four Servants that rule Shinjuku, the Phantom Demon Alliance. She tried to investigate the other members when she encountered Edmond Dantès, who told her to help Ritsuka.

Artoria Alter later rescues Ritsuka on her motorcycle while Moriarty holds Hessian Lobo off. After escaping, she congratulates them for reversing the Incineration of Humanity. She tries to take them to her hideout when they're stopped by Cavall II. After denying it is her dog, she takes it and Ritsuka to her hideout. There she gives Cavall II food while reprimanding it for leaving on its own again. She then asks Ritsuka how much they know about their current situation. Ritsuka tells her about Moriarty's heroics. Artoria Alter reveals she fought him before, though he was exceptionally stronger and personally different. He also subordinates with him. Artoria Alter then tells the others about the Alliance, of which Moriarty and Hessian Lobo are part of. She guesses they are the reason Ritsuka was sent into the Singularity, and they're its source. She also reveals Edmond told her to help Ritsuka while investigate the remaining members. She is concerned though that he is too weak to survive Shinjuku's dangers. She decides to go with Ritsuka to rendezvous with Moriarty. She warns they might fight depending on the circumstances. She also warns Moriarty may betray them, as Shinjuku is a city where betrayal is normal for the sake of survival. Ritsuka recalls they're to rendezvous at Shinjuku Station, but it's large and labyrinthian. Leonardo da Vinci decides to narrow down Moriarty's location the best she can.

The next morning, Artoria Alter and Ritsuka leave for Shinjuku Station. Outside, She explains it is always night in Shinjuku to point people forget what sunshine is. She then commands Cavall II to guard the hideout. The pair soon arrive at Shinjuku Station, where the others are shocked it's an actual labyrinth. Artoria Alter assumes it's because of a Servant, or it changed over time. While guiding Ritsuka, she gets unnerved that the campsites of the ruffian that usually occupy the station are gone. She hypothesizes someone cleaned it up so Ritsuka wouldn't flee, but they didn't account for a guide. She then notices and defeats the perpetrators, Hornets. She and Ritsuka then help Moriarty with his own Hornets. She threatens him under the belief he is the same one she fought before. She demands to know his True Name and Noble Phantasm. She then asks Moriarty why he risked his life to save Ritsuka even though they're not contracted. Ritsuka believes it is because he is a hero. Artoria Alter realizes Moriarty isn't the same one she fought before, but demands to know who is. Moriarty reveals his True Name was stolen, along with most of his power. He agrees with Da Vinci that he was split into good and evil, suspecting that he's the good half. Artoria Alter is shocked that he deduced her True Name from her swordsmanship and demeanor. The group then return to her hideout.

The next morning at the hideout, the group are alerted by a sudden phone call. Answering the phone, Ritsuka learns from Edmond that soldiers led by EMIYA Alter are heading for Jeanne Alter's hideout at Shinjuku Gyoen. Artoria Alter is perturbed that Jeanne Alter established her territory without any regard for others. She contemplates tying her to the back of her motorcycle and riding the Metro Expressway. Moritary reveals Jeanne Alter attacked him when he snuck into her territory, which Artoria Alter affirms she'd do the same. Regardless, the group leave to save Jeanne Alter.

They soon arrive at her location after she barely escaped from EMIYA Alter. After swapping insults, Jeanne Alter asks Artoria Alter why she came since they had truce to leave each other alone. Artoria Alter answers that is no longer the case, and boasts she has a Master now to the former's disbelief. Jeanne Alter tries and fails to convince Ritsuka that she is better than Artoria Alter and Moriarty when enemies attracted by her Noble Phantasm's scent arrive. After slaying them, Artoria Alter accuses her of trying to poach Mash. She claims she is her knight since Galahad is possessing her, but Jeanne Alter counters Mash isn't Galahad. Jeanne Alter tries to attack Moriarty, believing him to the same one who grievously wounded. She is convinced he isn't the same, and joins the group despite her mistrust. Artoria Alter doesn't approve though, and the two argue when Jeanne Alter leaves to get her own set of modern clothing after noticing the former's. While she searches the ruins of a boutique, the group are attacked by thugs and their so-called "Super Chimeras". They kill two of them, but the last one is killed by Hessian Lobo. Jeanne Alter returns and unleashes La Grondement Du Haine. Artoria Alter reprimands her for nearly killing them, and denies giving her the signal when she realizes it was Moriarty. Just according to Moriarty's plan, the flames of Jeanne Alter's Noble Phantasm prevents Hessian Lobo from escaping. The group fight it until it manages to escape. Jeanne Alter and Artoria Alter realize Moriarty intends to target Phantom of the Opera and Christine Daaé next. They then get ready to fight each other until Moriarty convinces to delay it until Phantom and Christine are dead.

Returning to the hideout, Artoria Alter tells Jeanne Alter to enter spirit form, or better yet leave if she doesn't like it. After another call from Edmond, the group learn the other Moriarty is the leader of the Alliance. This further exacerbates Jeanne Alter and Artoria Alter's distrust towards their own Moriarty. In response, Moriarty says they should defeat Phantom so he can gain their trust.He warns though they would be killed if they were to attack Phantom directly, which Jeanne Alter and Artoria Alter agree with. They would be severely outnumbered by the 200 Coloraturas stationed in Kabukicho if they were attack it directly. Moriarty and the Alters recall destroying a few Coloraturas before, but Moriarty reveals they replenish their numbers with 36 hours. He explains the Coloraturas assigned to patrol Kabukicho also regularly abduct people. Artoria Alter recognizes Excalibur Morgan is worthless in destroying Kabukicho when Moriarty reveals Shinjuku's magical energy comparable to the Age of Gods would reduce it significantly. The Alters nearly get into fight when Artoria Alter mockingly implies Jeanne Alter wouldn't do much better. Moriarty then asks them to bring him a Coloratura, which he'll use to observe Kabukicho. Leaving the hideout, Artoria Alter assumes Edmond knows Moriarty's true identity since he told not to trust him. The group then notice Coloratura kidnapping people, so they go in to capture one. After capturing a Coloratura and helping the people escape, the group return to the hideout. There it is revealed the Coloraturas are constructed from humans, with their flesh and nerves being placed into the dolls. Moriarty reveals he rigged the Coloratura with a bomb. Said Coloratura will be placed back with the others when they return to Kabukicho at their regular intervals, and then its bomb will triggered. The explosion will cause confusion among the Coloraturas, which the group will use as an opportunity to kill Phantom and Christine. After Moriarty finishes rigging the Coloratura, and gives the detonator to Ritsuka, the group head for Kabukicho.

Placing the rigged Coloratura with the others, Moriarty orders Artoria Alter and Jeanne Alter to take their positions. Ten minutes later the bomb is detonated by Moriarty instead of Ritsuka after seeing their determination to do so. The resulting explosion scatters the Coloraturas, so Artoria Alter and Jeanne Alter move in to destroy them. They are later called by Mash to help Ritsuka and Moriarty against EMIYA Alter, but they're busy dealing with the still active Coloraturas. They arrive just when EMIYA Alter retreats thanks to Hassan of the Cursed Arm's intervention, disappointed their attacks barely missed. Joined by Cursed Arm, the group escape Kabukicho and return to the hideout.

Back at the hideout, the group relax following their successful mission. It soon revealed though that Hassan is a disguised member of the Phantom Demon Alliance, Yan Qing. He takes Ritsuka hostage, but Artoria Alter and Jeanne Alter arrive to stop him. He dodges their attacks, and makes his escape as Artoria Alter chases him on her motorcycle with Jeanne Alter following. Unfortunately, they're unable able to rescue thanks to being delayed by the Hornet soldiers and King Lear called by Yan Qing. Jeanne Alter and Artoria Alter later beat Moriarty for letting Ritsuka get kidnapped.

Fortunately, Ritsuka is rescued from the Phantom Demon Alliance's base, Barrel Tower, by Sherlock Holmes. Artoria Alter and Jeanne Alter immediately express their concern and relief upon their return. Returning to the hideout, the Alters end up bickering again when Artoria Alter warns Ritsuka against being too kind towards Moriarty. After learning of Moriarty's True Name, their distrust of him grows even further; Artoria Alter suggests permanently banishing him. Sherlock then explains how the Alliance's goal of destroying the planet is possible without utilizing outside forces by doing what Thomas Edison and the Lion King tried to do. Not understanding what the others mean, Jeanne Alter demands to know what Edison and the Lion KIng try to do. Mash first explains the Lion King tried to use Rhongomyniad to preserve a portion of humanity and destroy the rest while the Incineration of Humanity was occurring. Artoria Alter calls her plan shallow and ill-conceived, but understands it came from much agonizing. Mash then explains Edison sought to preserve America by separating it from the timeline. Da Vinci realizes and reveals that Shinjuku is in a culled timeline. Despite being told it'll have no adverse effect on history, Ritsuka decides to save Shinjuku regardless. Sherlock then reveals the method by which the evil Moriarty will use to destroy the planet. The evil Moriarty plans to use the powers of the Phantom he's fused with, Der Freischutz, to load a meteorite into Barrel Tower, then fire it into the planet's core as a magic bullet to destroy the planet. She and Jeanne Alter agree with Sherlock's decision to eliminate Yan Qing, joking she may kill Jeanne Alter by accident. The group then leave to steal clothes for the purpose of Sherlock and Moriarty's plan. After defeating some thugs and their hacked Coloraturas, Ritsuka, Artoria Alter, and Jeanne Alter change clothes.

Now wearing dresses, Ritsuka, Artoria Alter, and Jeanne Alter enter a party hosted by Yan Qing. Jeanne Alter compares Artoria Alter to a wax doll in her dress while Artoria Alter compares her to an actual witch in her dress. However, the two share in their delight at seeing Ritsuka being clearly uncomfortable with their disguise. Artoria Alter proceeds to take pictures of Ritsuka with the camera phone she took from a passerby and upload them to Chaldea's server while Jeanne Alter holds them. She then dances with them while they wait for Yan Qing to appear. She admits she never learned to dance like they never did, but says instinct can make up for that. She also takes note that their the center of attention. She then notices Hornets upstairs, so she expects Yan Qing will soon appear. She becomes enraged however upon seeing he is disguised as her. Yan Qing soon notices her, and orders the Hornets to attack. Joined by Moriarty, the group defeat the Hornets followed by Romeo and Juliet. More Hornets then appears, with Yan Qing being disguised as one of then. Ritsuka removes their dress to shock him into revealing himself as part of Moriarty's plan. Yan Qing reveals his True Name, and fights the group. Sensing that he's going to lose, Yan Qing activates a bomb under the building to collapse it, prompting the group to escape. After he kills Yan Qing, Moriarty ponder if pride is necessary to live. Artoria Alter calls Jeanne Alter a panda after the latter said pride was worthless to her as a fake to the latter's confusion. The group then prepare to leave when they're found by Hessian Lobo.

Confronted by Hessian Lob, the group see it has been fused with another Phantom, the Invisible Man, as indicate by its invisibility. Its Class then changes from Rider to Avenger, and instantly targets Ritsuka as they're the only human around. Unable to defeat it, the group decide who'll stay behind to hold Hessian Lobo while the rest escape. Jeanne Alter takes the task upon herself, so the others can escape. She tells them to use that time to find a way to defeat Hessian Lobo permanently. She rejects Artoria Alter's suggestion of choosing someone among their group fairly. Artoria Alter wishes her luck, and escapes with the others.

Meanwhile at the hideout, the group discuss Lobo. Artoria Alter doubts Moriarty would understand the wolf's pain since he's the leader of an evil organization. She knows he knows what he does is evil, but something akin to instinct compels to do it nonetheless. She is no different, as she commits evil to preserve order. She doesn't fully understand Lobo's pain though, and recalls what Jeanne Alter said about the nature of Avengers. She then asks what Lobo would do if top Servants from all classes (including herself) nearly achieved victory against him. Sherlock answers he'd run away in that case. The group recognize they'll need trap to Lobo, and recall he died after falling for a trap using his dead mate, Blanca. They can construct a leg trap, but they lack a white wolf like Blanca to lure Lobo. Artoria Alter soon realizes they wish to use Cavall II as bait. She argues against it, asking how they'll fool Lobo's nose. Sherlock explains there is no need to, but Artoria Alter still refuses to put Cavall II in danger. However, Cavall II agrees to the plan to her surprise. The group then leave to initiate their plan.

Later, the group set traps while Ritsuka and Artoria Alter wait for Hessian Lobo on her motorcycle. She then reconfirms with Mash that Cavall II agreed with the plan. When Hessian Lobo arrives, the pair lead it to a couple of traps. It easily avoids them, but they're caught in the third trap when it stops upon seeing Cavall II. Taking advantage of the situation, Ritsuka and Artoria Alter fight Hessian Lobo before it can break free. However, before Artoria Alter can finish it off, Hessian blocks her attack after separating from Lobo. He throws his weapons away and tries to protect Lobo; Artoria Alter tells him to move aside or fight. She tries to chase after Lobo when he fled after biting off his own leg. Sherlock stops her though, understanding both Hessian and Lobo will soon disappear. Artoria Alter finds it a shame that Lobo cannot return home, as he is too blinded by revenge to remember where it is or his pack. She then notices Cavall II following after Lobo.

Back at the hideout, Artoria Alter rewards Cavall II with better than normal dog food for their bravery. She admits he is more important than Ritsuka, seeing him as her personal hunting dog or a descendant. She also sees him as one of her loyal knights, so in her court, he would rank slightly higher than Ritsuka. Moriarty states EMIYA Alter is standing guard in front of Barrel Tower with more than 200 Hornets. Sherlock deduces Evil Moriarty plans to use Bennu, an asteroid measuring 500m that was observed in the current year, as his magic bullet. He then reveals Phantoms can have their abilities greatly enhanced when fused with Heroic Spirits. Da Vinci realizes that would cause Der Freischutz to consider celestial objects being under the concept of magic bullet. Moriarty explains fusion between Heroic Spirits and Phantoms is only possible in Shinjuku, as the concept of Heroic Spirits fusing together is inherently impossible. Returning to topic of EMIYA Alter and his Hornets, Moriarty sends Da Vinci pictures of them. She relays information on their formation and weapons, the same used against large Demonic Beasts. Artoria Alter realizes she's their target, so they can't charge in on her motorcycle. Mash then recalls how she and Ritsuka being launched by Arash during Camelot.

While EMIYA Alter and his Hornets are distracted by her motorcycle, Artoria Alter and Ritsuka are then launched into their ranks via makeshift launch Moriarty made according to what Mash said earlier. As Artoria Alter fights EMIYA Alter, Sherlock sends out hacked Coloraturas to attack the Hornets. Moriarty then throws down a smokescreen, which Artoria Alter uses to quickly switch a Hornet with him disguised as one. The group then use this opportunity to enter the tower.

Inside the tower, the group ascend it when they encounter Macbeth. After defeating him, they continue to ascend.[16] Reaching the top floor, they're greeted by the evil Moriarty whose been expecting them. He announces Bennu is already being drawn to the tower by Der Freischutz's power before fighting the group. They defeat him, but a Demon God in humanoid form manifests in his place. Having regained his memory, he reveals he waited for 3000 years to kill Ritsuka. He found it unforgivable that a mere human overthrew Goetia's plan. He reveals Charles Babbage, as a subordinate to the Demon Gods, deduced they had a contingency in case the Goetia's plan failed. The Demon God eventually found a way to fuse Phantoms and Heroic Spirits after waiting 3000 years. He then introduces himself as Baal. Moriarty then pierces Sherlock, revealing he and Baal were partners. He then absorbs Sherlock into himself to gain his power. He explains the fusion of Phantoms and Heroic Spirit is possible because Shinjuku is in a culled timeline. He allied with Baal to achieve revenge as their respective rivals. In order to catch Sherlock off-guard, Moriarty erased his own memories and evil personality to create a good persona. Baal did the same, believing himself to be the Evil Moriarty. EMIYA Alter then appears and shoots Baal, revealing he was contracted to kill him. He joined the Alliance since it gave a greater probablity of achieving his goal, knowing there would be no repercussion for destruction in a culled timeline. He then fights Baal, while Ritsuka and Artoria Alter fight Moriarty. However, Baal declares Ritsuka will absolutely die before disappearing.

Bennu suddenly appears in the sky above Shinjuku, having become a magic bullet. Moriarty reveals the six shots of Der Freischutz aren't enough to turn the asteroid into a magic bullet. Mash then realizes Ritsuka became an important existence when Moriarty protected them. So adhering to the rules of Der Freischutz's seventh shot, Bennu will head for Ritsuka. Moriarty confirms Artoria Alter's suspicious that getting Ritsuka into the tower was part of his plan. Revealing he became good to make Ritsuka vulnerable, he announces Bennu will be loaded into the tower in five minutes. Artoria Alter takes EMIYA Alter with her to intercept Bennu. After he shatters it with Unlimited Lost Works, she destroys it with Excalibur Morgan. She then leaves to speak with Cavall II one last time before she disappears. She tells him that he's free to be a stray, or choose a new owner. She knows he'll be fine regardless, and thanks him for standing guard. She disappears after telling him to go.

During the Shinjuku Singularity, Artoria Alter acts as an ally to Ritsuka. She later uses Excalibur Morgan to completely destroy the asteroid that EMIYA failed to destroy with Unlimited Lost Works.

Dead Heat Summer Race! ~Ishtar Cup of Hopes and Dreams~[edit | edit source]

Artoria Alter notices a flyer for Ishtar's race. While she believes Servants have no need for vacations, she decides to go with Ritsuka to beach, believing they deserve a Vacation. She understands Ritsuka wants her to win the race, but she cannot do so as a king. So she will participate as the greatest maid of all to ensure its conducted properly and fairly. She later changes into her swimsuit, and enters Da Vinci's workshop. She offers to find the people Da Vinci she needs to construct Nero Claudius' vehicle. She originally came to get her own vehicle built, but Nero beat her to it. Nero tells her to leave until Artoria Alter points out a rule of the race is that each race must compete in teams of two, with one driving and one supporting. Nero questions why she wants to ally with her. Artoria Alter answers she needs to win, so she needs a skilled race instead of a familiar subordinate. Nero accepts her proposal, saying the latter can have the reward. Artoria Alter wants the reward, believing it'll be useful to Ritsuka. More importantly though, she wants to demonstrate her superiority to them. She and Nero then shake hands to confirm their alliance. They then duel to determine who will be the driver.

At the race track, Artoria Alter confirms with Nero that all racers are required to wear swimsuits. They are both driver and assistant, as it isn't against the rules for them to have concurrent roles. They both wanted to be the driver, but neither of them would permit the other. However, there wasn't enough time to reach an agreement to reach an agreement, so they compromised to share the role of driver. Ritsuka asks why they both wanted to be the driver, to which they answer the driver gets the glory. Ishtar then shows everyone the ritual tools, which are key to erasing the Singularity and indicate a team is a legit participant. They're designed to integrate into the vehicles, and any vehicle trying to race without them is automatically disqualified. After commentary on each team from Ishtar, the race begins.

Artoria Alter agrees with Nero on starting a fight when a group of thugs appear before the racers. She and Nero start the battle with their Noble Phantasms. After the thugs are defeated, Atalanta arrives. She is the leader of the thugs, whom she considers her children to the racers' confusion. Calling the wasteland the Atalanta Plains, she tells the racers that its roads leads to where she and her "children" planted Seed Apples. She says they are essential to her "children" 's future, so she cannot permit them to be destroyed in the race. They ignore her and continue racing, but they trigger the land mines she planted to protect the seed apples. Eventually though she is defeated, and the racers move on to the next area.

The race brings everyone to an active volcano, where they meet Boudica at its crater. She offers to cook them somethings, only to immediately turn hostile. Her hostility is due to what happened to Britannia, and the fact she doesn't have a playable swimsuit version this year despite modelling in one last year. She has become an Avenger, believing she must utterly break the racers' spirits to protect her homeland. She explains she will do so through a game of chicken to the mouth of the volcano. She also reveals they won't be able to cross the volcano until they defeat her, as she set it up that way. The racers accept her challenge; Artoria Alter lets Nero be the main driver after seeing her enthusiasm. Eventually a number of the racers drop out, which Artoria Alter finds better than easily removable stains. She and Nero eventually near the mouth of the volcano, but the former they won't be able to brake in times. Nero says they will slam the accelator instead, intending to win Boudica's challenge. She steps on the brakes at the last second, but she notices Boudica isn't reining her horses. She and Artoria Alter save her before she can fall into the volcano with her chariot. Boudica asks Artoria Alter why she doesn't hate Rome like she does as they both fought against it. Artoria Alter replies that she cannot answer that, but she finds Nero's opulence pleasing. This makes Boudica that realizes that herself as a Heroic Spirit and her living self aren't the same person. She reveals her Spirit Origin was changed when she summoned. She deduced that as the cause of her previous behavior, for which she apologizes. When asked by Nero who won the challenge, she points out Oda Nobunaga and Mysterious Heroine X won since they actually went into the volcano. She then says the road to the next area will become available once she disappears. She then disappears wishing the others good luck. Artoria Alter and Nero then escape when volcano starts to erupt.

Eventually the racers arrive at a river. Penthesilea and explains the more beautiful they are, the faster they will go. Artoria Alter finds the idea interesting, but the problem is that beauty is subjective. Penthesilea introduces them to the judges: Mister B, who judges their personal beauty, and Da Vinci, who judges their vehicles' beauty. When the race continues, Artoria Alter and Nero notice they aren't going fast enough, so Nero decides to dive into the river to let the spray of the water to highlight her beauty. Artoria Alter believes a dedicated professional shines with inner beauty. She then uses something from Merlin she installed into the vehicle to release floral fragrances. Unfortunately for her and Nero, Mister B judges them as decently cute. Everyone (except Helena Blavatsky and Frankenstein) soon beats him up after noticing his double standards, revealing him to be Blackbeard in disguise.

The racers soon enter the fourth area, which has breast-shaped hills. Artemis, along with her copies, fire upon them, warning they cannot go through Artemis Valley as they please. She will allow them to pass if they can find the real Orion among his copies and return him to her. Artoria Alter agrees with Nero to drive through the valley without Artemis' permission, comparing love, hate, romance to stains you're unsure whether or not to clean. However, the Artemises fire a volley of arrows that force them to crash it into the hillside.

The racers reach the final area, a bridge over a large ravine, with the Ishtar Temple at the finish line. Nero notices the others are close behind them, so she tells Artoria Alter not to take her foot off the accelerator no matter what. Artoria Alter fully agrees, and says she'll shower her in ale herself when they win. However, everyone is sent plummeting when someone cuts down the bridge.

Death Jail Summer Escape ~Medb's Great Bastille of Guilt and Despair~[edit | edit source]

Finding themselves at the bottom of the ravine, the racers are attacked by Hessian Lobo. Artoria Alter notices his hatred is lifeless, as if he's a machine fueled by hatred. Yet despite that, she senses he is stronger than ever. Hessian Lobo overwhelms the racers, and Medb arrives. She reveals he is a security system made in the original's shape like Artoria Alter suspected. She then arrests for placing weird textures on her land without permission. The racers fall unconscious and wake up in Medb's prison. They attack her, but it fails as their powers are negated in the prison. Medb tells the racers that she locked their vehicles up somewhere outside the prison after sensing a strange power from them. The racers are then brought to their cells, where they soon meet Ishtar's avatars. They then encounter Carmilla, who is working as a prison guard. She opens the cells, having determined they're too weak to actually escape. At the courtyard, Nobunaga Oda reveals a female prisoner whose usually kept in solitary confinement, and only let out to exercise. Said prisoner, Gorgon, then arrives. She agrees to tell them about the prison if they help with exercises. However, the fight soon interrupted by Florence Nightingale, who leaves after Gorgons says none of them are injured. Gorgon confirms Minamoto no Raikou's deduction that she is a projection of real herself inside the prison. She then reveals it isn't possible to destroy the prison's barrier from either the outside or the inside. Artoria Alter theorizes the barrier would disappear if they kill Medb, but they would prove difficult in their current situation. Also even if Ritsuka attacked her outside, it'd be for naught if Medb retreated back to the prison. However, the racers can take advantage of Medb's overconfidence in her Prison Field to find blind spots to escape. Carmilla then arrives to bring them back to their cells. There Nero and Artoria Alter agree with Ishtar that they need to escape first if they wish to reach their vehicle before the others. There Artoria Alter and Nero agree with Ishtar that they need to escape first if they wish to reach their vehicle before the others.

The next day, the racers still haven't found an escape route. They see Quetzalcoatl training other prisoners to be luchadores. After some sparring, the racers are sent back to their cells. They then follow Ritsuka's advice to dig their way out of the prison; Artoria Alter decides to reward them by making something disappear.

Their escape tunnels eventually converge onto the same room, where the real Gorgon is chained with divine steel. Artoria Alter figures because of that she couldn't escape even if the Prison Field disappears, so she has no interest in their prison break. Her only joy is watching in satisfaction as they fail to escape. Gorgon asks them to stop Nightingale from spraying her with reptile sanitization spray. However, the racers recall to her that they never were friends, and she used them to vent her frustrations at the courtyard. Gorgon replies she'll help them escape if they defeat Nightingale. After Nightingale is defeated, Artoria Alter threatens Gorgon with the reptile sanitization spray. Gorgon however points she melted the bottle's bottom with her acid. Nero determines they can her acid to clear any obstacles that bar them while digging. Since they had a deal, Gorgon spews her acid into special magical containers for each team. Unfortunately, while digging, they discover the Prison Field extends underground. They return to Gorgon's cell, where they vent their frustrations. Afterwards, they realize they have no choice but to kill Medb to disable the Prison Field. Gorgon reveals there was another prisoner who tried escaping by kill Medb. She defeated them, and revealed she has a conceptual weakness to projectile cheese. The problem with the plan though is that Medb is always protected by her warriors. Gorgon reveals Medb always takes a shower in her warden's office at the same time every day. James Moriarty, Thomas Edison, and Nikola Tesla point out they need someone intelligent as them and Charles Babbage, who also knows the prison's layout if they want to successfully snipe Medb from outside her bathroom window. Gorgon reveals there is a prisoner who knows everything about the prison despite being in solitary confinement. After being given general directions, the racers dig their way to the prisoner's cell.

They dig into the prisoner's cell, who turns out to be Enkidu in tight restraints. After Raikou cuts their restraints, Enkidu asks the racers to do something for them. Artoria Alter thought they wanted her to clean their cell if Ritsuka gives her permission. It would also give her an excuse to employ the Maid Reward Cards she made. She then decides to clean Enkidu's cell with dizzying speed without stopping unless begged to. While they wish to see their cell cleaned, Enkidu wants to spar with the racers to see if they're fully functional. After sparring, Enkidu agrees to provide the racers with the necessary calculations. Carmilla arrives to feed them, and attacks everyone after seeing Enkidu was freed of their restraints. After defeating Carmilla, Enkidu, Babbage, Edison, and Tesla make blueprints for cheese-apult.

After building it with the materials Ritsuka provided, the racers use the cheese-apult to assassinate Medb while she's in the shower. However, Medb kicks the cheese away thanks to training her body to automatically react to incoming cheese. Enkidu reveals there is another way to remove the Prison Field besides killing Medb, which only they know. They reveal the control device for the Prison Field is a stone above the ground. The racers soon realize it's in the statue of Medb in the courtyard. Enkidu then reveals there is a prisoner who is master of disguise that the racers can use to trick Quetzalcoatl into disable ther Prison Field. The racers then dig their way to the prisoner's cell.

They arrive in the prisoner's cell, only to find Carmilla there to their shock. They fight her, but in the midst of it she turns into Nightingale. After being defeated, she reveals herself to be Yan Qing in disguise. He agrees to disguise himself as Medb to trick Quetzalcoatl into disabling the Prison Field in exchange for fighting him. Afterwards, he convinces her to disable the barrier underground, allowing the racers to reach their vehicles in the warehouse. They escape to the outside, but they're met by Medb and Quetzalcoatl. After deflecting shots from Mysterious Heroine X's cheese blaster, Medb decides to execute the racers. The racers defeat her and Quetzalcoatl, then return to the race once they disappear.

If Nero and Artoria are in the lead for the race, they come neck and neck with the teams whose vehicles can match theirs: Team Nobunaga and Team Fran. They eventually manage to get ahead of them though thanks to Artoria Alter's defensive maneuvers. She warns Nero to be careful, as they don't know what surprises they'll encounter. However after the race, a enormous storm moves toward the track as if it has a will of its own. Ishtar reveals this was her plan. Unbeknownst to the racers, their vehicles' tires were carving magical energy into the Venus textures that she place on the land. She then reveals her temple to actually be a giant ATM called the Ishtar Quantum Power System. The racers confront her when the relics she had them install in their vehicle are suddenly removed. The relics converge at the Ishtar QPS, which gathers the magical energy expended in the race. At the same time, the relics were storing the heat created by the friction of the racers' tires running across the Venus textures for each relic to reach an exicted state. The purpose of all this was for Ishtar to create a new Gugalanna. After using the relic and the Ishtar QPS to do so, she declares she can use him to destroy the Singularity. Da Vinci points that would work, but it'd also destroy Connacht. The racers then fight Ishtar and Gugalanna before he's completely formed, but they struggele against him. Nero describes Ishtar as the type who'd self-destruct by betting everything she mistakenedly believed to be a winning hand, which everyone vigorously agrees with. Quetzalcoatl then arrives to attack Gugalanna, revealing the her that disappeared before Yan Qing in disguise. After she destroys Gugalanna, the racers and the race's adminstrative staff get their picture taken by Georgios. If Nero and Artoria Alter won the race, the former wants the latter to bask in the glory and celebrations alongside her. However, they start to argue when Artoria Alter wants to give the Holy Grail to Ritsuka herself. They then recall how Ritsuka passionately asked them to race individually, saying the experience caused their Class Change. They decide to punish Ritsuka for their trickery before proceeding to duel each other for the Grail.

Servant★Fes 2018: Servant Summer Festival![edit | edit source]

Artoria Alter works as a waitress at the hotel where everyone is staying. She later appears at the shooting range to ensure Secace is in working order, praising it for picturesque locale. She reminds Mecha Eli-chan that the range is tourist attraction, not a military facility, when the latter gets infuriated that they ran out of ammo. She then watches in amazement with her and Billy the Kid as an old man gets a bull's eye everytime with a flintlock pistol without getting up from his chair.

In a subsequent loop, she prepares to serve a meal to Scheherazade and Nitocris. In response to Nitocris's surprise, she boasts she is skilled enough to work at multiple restraunts, serving as waitress, cook, and cleaner all in one. Following the meal, she draws her rifle when Scheherazade pays the exact amount on the check. She leaves them be though once Nitocris gives her her 30% tip.

Interlude[edit | edit source]

In her Interludes, while in the middle of conducting a training on her Master for their sake, facing a Servant that was possibly born because of the curse of the Holy Grail similarily like herself, and facing a Servant that was once called a former king similarily like herself, allowed Artoria Alter to picture her state of being and reaffirm her personal circumstances.[1]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Saber Alter HF2 Promo Art.jpg

Due to being blackened, Artoria's magic reactor has grown outside the scale, greatly increasing her Magical Energy consumption.[2] However, thanks to being Sakura's Servant, she has been provided with her enormous mana supply,[4] giving her enough mana to rival that of Earth's own core.[8] Whereas Artoria used to contain her own power,[2] due to her past Masters usually being unable to provide her with sufficient Magical Energy,[9] in this condition, she wields powerful energy without hesitation.[2] As such, her destructive power has also been increased, becoming a fearful being, inflicting havoc and death upon the world.[4] Although Artoria was able to make use of her original abilities without being affected by the Master after making a contract with Rin,[9] and just seeing her standing in that state without moving a single finger was enough to make Shirou believe that there seemed to be no end to her overwhelming power and that she wouldn't lose even to Heracles,[10] in a sense, Saber Alter is even more powerful than she was in life, and none can deny that she is the strongest servant.[4][11]

Having been released from Shirou and having access to a great source of magical energy, Shirou claims that Saber Alter is literally invincible and that not even Sakura, who had an extraordinary amount of magical energy, would be able to beat Saber.[11] The disparity in strength between Saber Alter and the Saber prior to her darkening is such,[12] that whereas Artoria was greatly outmatched by Heracles and gravely injured in their first fight,[13] Saber Alter easily corners and overwhelms him even in a direct battle.[4][12] Although Heracles smashed the ground with an attack powerful enough to destroy a mountain, even the flying rubble does not cause her to faulter, and she simply makes her way through Berserker's sword and the flying clods and attacks his defenseless body.[14] Every single of her strikes is massive, and anyone fighting her without paying attention will have the top half of their body sent flying.[7] In fact, each of her sword strikes is equivalent to an A rank attack, and as such, she slices through Heracles' harder than steel body, killing him like it was nothing.[15][14] Although Berserker gains resistance to her attacks after being healed thanks to God Hand, Saber Alter is capable of killing him more times by increasing the power of her attacks with her Mana Burst skill, to the point where each of them looks like a Noble Phantasm. The only time she invokes the True Name of her sword to fire her Noble Phantasm is at the end of their fight when her lips are shown muted.[12] In the Fuyuki Singularity, Cú Chulainn notes that Saber had trouble defeating Berserker.[16]

In this state, her Luck has been greatly decreased, and Cú Chulainn claims that he could have finished off Saber with just one strike had he been summoned as a Lancer.[16] Due to Saber Alter having lost "the protagonist’s compensation or the glimmer of the stars", a fight between Gilgamesh and her would be just a measure of their skills. Back when they were alive, both had extraordinary magical energy output, so it would be a measure of their firepower, where Gilgamesh would gain a slight advantage due to his "omnipotence and cunning". Should they fight as Servants, Saber Alter could win due to Gilgamesh not having any assistance from his Master as he usually fights relying only on his own power, regardless of his master being a first-rate or third-rate Mage. Gilgamesh could defeat her if his “Master’s charm as a human” is high.[12]

Saber Alter in combat.

In exchange for her power having been increased more than normally, the armor she wears was dyed jet black and grew in weight changing into a heavier armor.[1][2] Due to her armor having been reinforced, granting her more defensive ability than in her original state,[4] it seems like her agility has decreased as a result.[2] Whereas Saber Alter overwhelms Medusa in technique, vitality, and magical energy, Medusa is able to fight her thanks to her superior speed and her Mystic Eyes. Even though they aren't able to petrify Saber due to her having greater magical energy, it still forces a great pressure on her, reducing her ability and stunning her, allowing Medusa to keep her occupied by using her full strength for over twelve minutes.[17] Even in this weakened state, Saber is strong enough to repel Caladbolg II with one strike,[17] and to swing her sword at the speed of light.[18] As such, Saber Alter still overwhelms Rider, and no matter how quickly Medusa leaps to attack her blind spots, Saber still deflects all of her attacks, without suffering a single scratch or showing any fatigue.[17]

Shirou Emiya claims that even with Archer's arm and if he were in perfect shape he wouldn't be able to beat Saber since he can't project any Noble Phantasm exceeding hers.[11] However, in their actual fight, whether it was in fear of breaking the ceiling of the cave they were on if she used it, or maybe because of some other reason, Saber Alter fought him using only her sword technique and not her Noble Phantasm, giving Shirou a slight chance of victory. The power gap between the two is still too great, so Shirou is forced to reach deep down into Archer's arm to pull out his ultimate tactic and use Kanshou and Bakuya's full capabilities. With the Triple-Linked Crane Wings, Shirou attacks her with the method he couldn't come up with, the stance that guarantees a sure kill. Targeting the enemy's neck, the two blades are thrown drawing an arc so they intersect right on the enemy. Although no hero can come out unscathed after being trapped between steel-penetrating Noble Phantasms, Saber Alter blocks them like nothing. By projecting the swords a second time, he blocks her attack, and before she has time to unleash a fatal strike, another surprise attack comes from behind her which she dodges thanks to her godlike cognition-like Instincts. Although Shirou attacks multiple times over her unguarded body by making use of the magnetlike properties of Kanshou and Bakuya, Saber Alter even blocks the simultaneous attack from four blades, destroying them in the process at the cost of leaving herself open. Although the battle would have ended with a stalemate, Shirou surpasses his limits by creating a third pair of swords with which he slashes her exposed body with a perfect attack, defeating her. Having blocked the two earlier surprise attacks from the enemy, her limbs were occupied for the briefest of moments, and thus, she wasn't able to block his final attack, which shattered her organs and crushed her spine. The battle would have ended there if Shirou had simply finished her off by destroying her brain or heart, however, it had taken everything he had to defeat her and as such, his mind had been destroyed in the process, leaving him motionless on the ground. Compared to her regular state's already superb regeneration, Artoria Alter's regeneration is bolstered by the almost infinite source of magical energy from Sakura, allowing her to heal those wounds in ten minutes and requiring the destruction of her head or heart for immediate death. As such, Saber Alter proclaimed her victory.[19]

Class Skills[edit | edit source]

Magic Resistance (B Rank): Due to being blackened, the rank of this skill is lower than its original value. Still, its rank is considerably high, as it nullifies spells at B rank (activated within three counts) or lower, and it is difficult to harm her even with high thaumaturgy.[4]
Riding (— Rank): In the maddened state while blackened, the loss of fine control makes it impossible for Saber Alter to ride beasts; rather, the mount cannot withstand it. Therefore, in reality, one can consider the Riding ability lost.[4]

Personal Skills[edit | edit source]

Saber Alter's Mana Burst

Mana Burst (A Rank): Both Saber's body and sword are always infused with the Magical Energy supplied by the Greater Grail.[4] By instantaneously releasing her magical energy, her abilities are increased in a similar manner to jet propulsion.[1][2] It engulfs her more powerful attacks and leaves a black trail behind her strikes. She can release a burst of black energy in varying sizes called Burst Air (バースト・エア, Bāsuto Ea?) that can either travel towards the opponent or rise high into the air. Its power is great enough to give Rider of Shinjuku a mortal wound.[20]
She can create solid energy in the form of a dragon's head to grab, bite, and throw the enemy with Tyrant Clap (タイラントクラップ, Tairanto Kurappu?), and she can strike at the enemy from afar by surging magical energy around her and attacking with several black tentacles of energy. Of course, the magical energy which is constantly consumed is also quite large, so her appetite has also grown compared to her normal counterpart in order to sustain herself.[1][4] Artoria herself possesses average physical strength, but she managed to defeat countless enemies by strengthening all actions with her excessive magical energy.[2]
Instinct (B Rank): In order to maintain her reason in this state, constant self-control is required. Due to her constantly suppressing her rage, her surroundings are neglected and Instinct is dulled. On the other hand, Artoria in this state may be rather more likely to take action due to her behavior being distanced away from that of a hero's.[1][4] Despite this skill having been ranked down, Saber Alter still possesses the ability to always "feel" the best course for oneself during combat.[1]
Charisma (E Rank): Saber Alter boasts the natural talent to command an army,[1] however, the rank of this skill is much lower than normal, as the magnificent king's charm which once inspired and captivated her soldiers is gone. It increases her leadership skills while significantly decreasing the morale of her troops.[4]

Noble Phantasm[edit | edit source]

ExcaliburMorganVisualNovel.png

In this form, Artoria still wields Excalibur. Due to the nature of this Divine Construct as a “sword that amplifies”, when Saber was blackened, Excalibur blackened with her, becoming known as Excalibur Morgan.[21] In this state, the fact that it is the strongest holy sword does not change,[21] and it can be considered even more dangerous than its regular counterpart due to Artoria wielding it to her heart's content, without controlling her own magical energy.[2] As such, to beat Saber Alter in a one on one duel, her opponent would need to be a skilled user of a Noble Phantasm that equals hers. A contradiction, since very few Heroic Spirits may possess a Noble Phantasm surpassing hers.[11] Furthermore, thanks to the enormous mana supply granted by Sakura, Artoria can now invoke this Noble Phantasm without limit.[4] Thanks to this, after Saber was blackened in the Fuyuki Singularity, she began rampaging like a tiger released from a cage, defeating EMIYA, Benkei, Medusa, Heracles and Hassan of the Cursed Arm by herself.[16]

When clashing with Bellerophon, Excalibur Morgan manages to offset ninety percent of Bellerophon in less than an instant. Saber's holy sword would have no trouble vaporizing Medusa's trump card, however, Shirou is able to aid her by making up for the difference with Rho Aias, barely gaining an edge in the confrontation of the Noble Phantasms. Thanks to their combined efforts, Saber is left deeply wounded, however, she still had some power left, and had Shirou not killed her right there with the Azoth Sword, Saber would have healed short after.[17] 

In her fight against Caster Cú Chulainn and Mash, Saber Alter lost due to her tenacity wavering. Since she stayed her hand at the last moment right before firing her Noble Phantasm, Mash managed to block it with Lord Chaldeas allowing Cú to finish Saber off with Wicker Man.[7] Even in this weakened state,[7] Excalibur Morgan remains extremely powerful, as even after Altera absorbed a Holy Grail in the Septem Singularity and fired her Teardrop Photon Ray, its tremendous magical energy only reminded Mash of the sacred sword they saw in Fuyuki. Mash also stated that Lord Chaldeas wouldn't have been able to block it on its own, as she needed the help of Boudica's own Noble Phantasm to block it, and even then, Lü Bu and Spartacus were destroyed by the light since they were rampaging around the palace entrance. She would go on to doubt if Nero, Boudica and herself would be enough to beat Altera since she had help of a powerful Caster when they defeated Saber Alter.[22] Although Saber Alter considers Altera herself to be a disappointment after fighting her for a while, once Altera starts drawing all the mana in the atmosphere into her blade, Artoria acknowledges her Teardrop Photon Ray as a worthy foe. Despite that Noble Phantasm being capable of incinerating the world, Excalibur Morgan overpowers it, annihilating Altera.[23] Although Saber Alter boasts an unbelievable magical output,[7] Dr. Roman measures that the power output demonstrated by the Lion King when they first saw her in the Camelot Singularity is way beyond anything seen previously from Saber Alter.[24]

Wielding the most famous Holy Sword doesn't come without a disadvantage. Due to being the most famous holy sword in the modern era, anyone who gets hit by her Noble Phantasm and survives it will find out her True Name. Thus, it will allow her opponent to come up with a better strategy next time they face each other.[25]

In this state, Artoria doesn't even try to search for an utopia but instead pursues a more realistic common ground, understanding that no matter how much she pursues her ideals, all humans will eventually die in a meaningless way. As such, in the hypothetical case that Shirou gave Avalon to Saber Alter, she wouldn't be able to use it.[12]

Incarnation[edit | edit source]

She is blackened by the mud from the Holy Grail in the form of the Shadow, and she is incarnated by the power of the Grail to have more concrete ties to the physical plane. This makes her into a powerful being, and while Blackened Servants cannot return to spirit form,[4] Artoria never had that ability even as a regular Servant. She does gain the ability to travel quickly by sinking into the Shadow and moving elsewhere at Sakura's command. Due to no longer having to restrain her magical energy consumption, she has lost her limitations, causing her fighting ability and destructive power to jump significantly, comparative to a runaway train, but fine control is no longer possible for her.[4]

Forms and Alternate Versions[edit | edit source]

Santa Alter[edit | edit source]

"Miss Almost Weekly Santa Alter" has appeared.[26]

Artoria Alter has a festival-themed form known as Santa Alter (サンタオルタ, Santa Oruta?) under the Rider-class as an Event Servant, the self-described "Evil Santa Claus that cleaves through the breath-freezing winter." A form taken by Artoria Alter, who resolved herself to wiping out her own image and attempted to carry out activities as the ally of children/Santa Claus. The sack she holds in her hand is packed with the best selection of presents that she spent a whole year saving up.[27]

Having "taken a fancy" to acting as Santa Claus, Santa Alter has decided to briefly take up the role and deliver gifts as a means of giving "thanks for the life I have." She carries with her a bag of presents containing Craft Essences that she collected, also doubling as a bludgeoning weapon in battle. The increase in her weight accounts for the weight of the presents.[27]

Although Santa Alter has changed into the Rider Class, it is not like there has been any dramatic changes. The lack of futility in her behavior and the cool-headed character are a close resemblance to Artoria Alter, but the admiration towards Santa Claus that lies at her root is making her a little more kind.[27]

The sleigh that Santa Alter rides on has been handmade by herself, named Llamrei II (ラムレイ二号, Ramurei Ni-gō?), and it is pulled by a couple of reindeers, but she has lost them after they were scared off upon her using Excalibur Morgan as a "jet engine" to reach the stratosphere. She claims that she can guide the sleigh on her own, but feels that she needs a reindeer to "capture the hearts of the children" and thus commandeers Ritsuka Fujimaru as her reindeer by means of forcibly summoning them as her Master. She boasts that the sleigh has been assembled from ash tree's wood while having a brave horse and a lion as an image, but - no matter how one looks at it - it seems like nothing but a hippopotamus.[27] For fuel, she uses magical energy from stockings, the "crystallized wishes for presents from the children", to travel around the world.

"At any rate, I feel like eating turkey." Because she has completely turned into Santa Claus, Artoria Alter's personality has changed in various ways.[27]

Personality[edit | edit source]

The state of Santa Alter's personality is that of Saber Alter's, but there is some degree of difficulty in being bestowed the post of Santa, and with that role in mind, her personality changed to being frank. As Santa, her dreams and ideals of scattering smiles and being merry has resulted in removing the permafrost-like ice of her heart. Nonetheless, it is good that there is no change in her Spartan doctrine, being unaffected and sincere, and imbued with fortitude and vigor. She runs about for the sake of giving presents to children, gifting punishments to bad children, but later on throwing presents to them after they become good children.[26]

Santa Alter gathers unconditional trust in the Master and tells them of an aspiration of playing an active role as Santa together. The thickness of that trust is the most important role in gaining an extremely harsh victory————to the extent that she entrusts them the role of reindeer, the central part of Llamrei II. And it goes without saying that the Master chosen as her reindeer will anticipate heavy labor extending over the length of one week. Although she is greatly pleased with herself as Santa, the Master should absolutely do not begin to speak of that. Because there is no need to praise her as Santa. If one says "You're a good Miss Santa", etc. to sympathize with her success, don't you agree that it would be the day the sled rises to the stratosphere?[26]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Elizabeth (Halloween)
An eyesore for she is the same festival Event Servant-type as Santa Alter. She'll make her a dragon steak for everyone.[26]
Asterios
Santa Alter feels obliged because Christmas is said to be associated with getting somebody to do excessive work. Needless to say, the last present delivered is a crown for Asterios.[26]


Swimsuit[edit | edit source]

Even as an Alter, she will wear a swimsuit. Because it's Summer. But due to some kind of belief, she has put aside the crown of the king, and dons a brilliant white crown - a white brim.[28]

Yes, as a maid.[28]

The King of Britain, Artoria Pendragon's other facet as an Alter, further awakened to another conviction. Welcoming Summer not as a sole tyrant, the high-spirited Artoria re-evaluates herself as a kind of service. Whatever she's saying makes sense, but it's a complete enigma as to why she's become this way. In order to allow the Master to enjoy a far more enjoyable Summer, she has chosen the path of the maid. As she intends to hide the fact that she is Artoria, her attire has many things as part of a disguise.[28]

Excalibur as a mop. Secace as a pistol. Her combat style like a militant's. Mowing down opponents with a mop, stopping their movements with a pistol, using grenades for an explosion.[28]

As a maid.[28]

(Although the person herself wont admit it, and hasn't realized it) Alter, who has succumbed to the summer mana, has changed into a swimsuit. "I am not one of those so-called swimsuit Servants. That is because, before the swimsuit, I am firstly a maid." I see, an irrefutable, sound argument. However, ever since she turned into a maid, her overly serious personality has become much stricter. She will never allow a depraved Master to escape her eyes, taking on the role as the Demonic Chief Maid.[28]

Alter joins the Ishtar Cup together with Nero. Their team name "Tyrant Shooting Star" is actually her idea. A fitting name for the miraculous team between the celebrated, selfish emperor and a tyrant maid. Her motive for entering the race is to prove herself as the strongest. She obviously seeks a (physical) reward, but that is a separate matter, and feels it's fine to win for the sake of the Master.[28]

Nero regards "all the other teams as rivals", but for Alter, there isn't "a team I definitely cannot lose to." Nero and Alter. Both of them don't accommodate each other's whims, but as Nero wants to actively participate and enjoy the race, and Alter is seeking both the prize and to disperse her violent urges (stress), they joined hands and entered the Ishtar Cup together.[28]

There is no real interest to unveil the hidden truth of the race. Because Alter is under the impression that she is being cheered on as the number one protagonist, she is in a relatively good mood. She doesn't really look that way on the outside though.[28]

Alter's approach to the race is "No holding back". Nero, who doesn't think ahead and has her foot on the accelerator, and Alter, who thinks ahead but still uses the Nitro. Nero prioritizes "Beauty and Speed", while Alter prioritizes "Simplicity and Speed". Half of their interests are misaligned, but because the other half are exactly the same, they actually get along really well.[28]

... Surely, this is a miraculous team?[28]

Alter's alignment became evil not because she doesn't regard herself well as a maid, but supposedly because of her own tactlessness in resorting to forceful methods to achieve her ideal service.[28]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Artoria Alter's Noble Phantasm is Secace Morgan (セクエンス・モルガン?). It is a combination of Excalibur and Secace, the short sword possessed by King Arthur that “can only be carried into mortal combats”. Secace takes the the shape of a small automatic pistol, transforming into an anti-material rifile when combined with Excalibur.[28]

Independent Action (単独行動?) is the ability to take action even in the absence of a Master. Artoria Alter acquired this Skill from the conviction that a maid’s service mentality ought to be free... spontaneous, and not coerced by anyone else. Due to obtaining this skill, her usual parameters have declined somewhat.[28]

Summer Sweeper! (サマー・スイーパー!?) is Mana Burst changed for a maid’s use. An expert of water-washing that rinses off anything. While increasing her own serviceability (attack power), she strictly coaches the entire party, increasing their morale.[28]

Coaching (コーチング?) is a Skill that represents Artoria Alter redressing a mistaken battle style through strict education and guidance. Since she is quite the spartan, those who are coached by her receive heavy damage.[28]

    Blackening of Servants
    The black mud in the Holy Grail contaminates the souls of those who touch it. It goes without saying for mere humans, and supernatural beings like Servants are no exception to this either. The contaminated person's personality reverses toward the orientation of evil. This is madness caused by touching Angra Mainyu. This is called "blackening". There are those who can use the black mud as part of their own power thanks to the properties of its contamination and those whose powerful egos have stayed back its mental pollution.
    An example of the former is Matou Sakura and the latter is Gilgamesh. The blackened Servant is incarnated by the power of the Grail so the more concrete ties to the physical plane turns them into powerful beings.
    Their physical interference power increases but at the same time they lose the ability to return to spirit form.
    Also, as they no longer bother to restrain their magic energy consumption, their fighting ability jumps significantly. This momentum can be compared to a runaway train.
    Because they are in that state, fine control is not possible, but in exchange, their destructive power increases.
    They are fearful beings inflicting havoc and death upon the world. These are blackened Servants.

    Saber Alternative, or Black Saber, is the name given to Artoria when she fell to Hassan, was consumed by the dark shadow, and obtained true incarnation during the "Heaven's Feel" route.
    Artoria, now jet-black, could now invoke Excalibur without limit thanks to the enormous prana supply from the blackened Sakura. Thus, she could overwhelm Berserker Heracles even in a direct battle. Now unfettered and in a sense more powerful than she was in life, none can deny that she is the strongest Servant.

    Class Abilities

    Magic Resistance: B
    Lower than original value due to the corruption. Still high, as it nullifies spells at B rank (activated within three counts) or lower, and it is difficult to harm her even with high thaumaturgy.

    In the maddened state while blackened, the loss of fine control makes it impossible to ride beasts; rather, the mount cannot withstand it. Therefore, in reality one can consider the Riding ability lost.

    Personal Skills

    Instinct: B
    Constant self-control is required to maintain Saber's reason while blackened. To focus on suppressing her madness, her surroundings are neglected and Instinct is dulled.

    Power Burst: A
    Saber's body is always suffused in the energy supplied by the Greater Grail. Her armor is also reinforced, granting more defensive ability than in her original state.

    Charisma: E
    The magnificent king's charm which once inspired and captivated her soldiers is gone. Since she rules by terror, leadership ability is improved but troops' morale is extremely low.

    Even while blackened, Artoria's greatest power Excalibur is still potent. However, the sword is tainted an ominous black. Just as the fairies of the lake (Vivienne and Morgan) manifest as both good and evil, the holy sword has its own dark side. Still, its "character" as a holy sword is greatest. The function of converting the wielder's magical energy into light through the blade does not change, but the light is transformed into the same darkness of the blade.

  5. [v] TYPE-MOON Ace 7 - 10 year Anniversary interview: Nasu Kinoko X Takeuchi Takashi X Urobuchi Gen
    Q: OK then, we'll change topics. Saber has a lot of alter egos like Saber Alter and Saber Lily. How do you see them, Urobuchi?

    OK then, we'll change topics. Saber has a lot of alter egos like Saber Alter and Saber Lily. How do you see them, Urobuchi?

    Uro: What I imagine is that for the Saber Lily storyline, in Fate/stay night, Saber was completely beaten by Caster, and so she became one of her Servants. Like, she thought "I'd be way better off with Caster than with Shirou." (Laughs)
    Nasu: I never thought of that. Interesting. So in other words, the white dress represents how both her body and soul have been tamed by Caster. So Lily is truly like a "lily" to Caster... you crazy bastard, you did it again...
    Takeuchi: Lily's design was inspired by the dress she wore when Saber was captured by Caster. Then, we just filled it with feminine qualities that Saber lacked and it became what it is now. So basically, I think Urobuchi really hit it close to the mark.
    Uro: Really?! Lily looked like a villain to me from the moment I saw her. Imagine her appearing from behind Caster, really working those heels! Just thinking of it gets me excited!
    Takeuchi: But in terms of villains, don't we already have Alter?
    Uro: No, she isn't a villain, she's a dark hero.
    Nasu: Alter is an idealist who clings to her own values even though she's been blackened. In that respect, she isn't a pure villain.
    Uro: For example, Alter's like how Hakaider was in Mechanical Violator Hakaider (*8). And Lily is the enemy she would face. The wrinkles in the corners of her eyes are proof to that. She'd shine as a villain.
    Nasu: Then after defeating Lily in battle, Alter would jump on a motorbike in the last scene and ride off into the sunset. Then the narration would come in: "She is a modern knight, who lives in a world of darkness!" (*9)
    Takeuchi: Motorbikes aside, (laughs) I do think it'd be interesting to add meat to Lily's character in that manner.

    Saber Alternative, or Black Saber, is the name given to Artoria when she fell to Hassan, was consumed by the dark shadow, and obtained true incarnation during the "Heaven's Feel" route.
    Artoria, now jet-black, could now invoke Excalibur without limit thanks to the enormous prana supply from the blackened Sakura. Thus, she could overwhelm Berserker Heracles even in a direct battle. Now unfettered and in a sense more powerful than she was in life, none can deny that she is the strongest Servant.

    Class Abilities

    Magic Resistance: B
    Lower than original value due to the corruption. Still high, as it nullifies spells at B rank (activated within three counts) or lower, and it is difficult to harm her even with high thaumaturgy.

    Riding: -
    In the maddened state while blackened, the loss of fine control makes it impossible to ride beasts; rather, the mount cannot withstand it. Therefore, in reality one can consider the Riding ability lost.

    Personal Skills

    Instinct: B
    Constant self-control is required to maintain Saber's reason while blackened. To focus on suppressing her madness, her surroundings are neglected and Instinct is dulled.

    Power Burst: A
    Saber's body is always suffused in the energy supplied by the Greater Grail. Her armor is also reinforced, granting more defensive ability than in her original state.

    Charisma: E
    The magnificent king's charm which once inspired and captivated her soldiers is gone. Since she rules by terror, leadership ability is improved but troops' morale is extremely low.

    Noble Phantasms
    Sword of Promised Victory -- Excalibur

    Range: 1-99
    Maximum targets: 1000 persons
    Even while blackened, Artoria's greatest power Excalibur is still potent. However, the sword is tainted an ominous black. Just as the fairies of the lake (Vivienne and Morgan) manifest as both good and evil, the holy sword has its own dark side. Still, its "character" as a holy sword is greatest. The function of converting the wielder's magical energy into light through the blade does not change, but the light is transformed into the same darkness of the blade.

    • Land
    • Recognition
    • Magic energy of Master


    The three factors that affect the status of a Servant are land, recognition, and Master.
    With respect to land and recognition, the closer one is to the land (cultural sphere) that was the stage of the legend of the Heroic Spirit and the more that spirit is known, the stronger he is.
    The meaning of "strong" here is the Servant becoming closer to the strength, equipment of that of the legend. Through this blessing, the addition of another NP is also possible.
    If Chu Chulainn had been summoned in his homeland Ireland, a castle, chariot, protection of sleeplessness, and the like would have been added probably. Also, if the magic energy of the Master is powerful, the Servant will become closer to his strength as in the legend.

    Because Artoria has served under several Masters, she is a good example for demonstrating the effect that the Master’s magical energy has on Servant Status. Because Shirou’s Magical Paths were obstructed, Artoria’s ability cannot be called that of the best Servant while having Shirou as her Master. Artoria’s abilities rose when having Kiritsugu as Master. Her LCK status decreased since even Kiritsugu still could not provide sufficient magical energy, as a result the status was affected by the Master's way of life. When having Rin as a Master, Artoria was able to unleash her original abilities without being affected by the Master.

    Excalibur’s appearance after being corrupted by evil. Excalibur functions by converting its user’s magical energy into offensive power. Because of this nature as a “sword that amplifies”, when Saber was blackened, Excalibur blackened with her.
    In Arthurian legend, King Arthur received Excalibur from Vivian, a fairy of the lake. Just as the fairy Vivian who embodied goodness had her polar opposite in the evil Morgan, so too does Excalibur have the possibility of embodying both good and evil. However, whether Excalibur is filled with good or stained by evil, the fact that it is the strongest holy sword does not change.

    アーサー王伝説において、エクスカリバーは湖の妖精ヴィヴィアンがアーサー王に授けた剣である。湖の妖精に 善の属性を持つヴィヴィアンと、対極である悪の属性を持つモルガンが存在するように、妖精から授かったエク スカリバーも善と悪の両属性を持ちうる可能性があるのだろう。だがエクスカリバーが善悪どちらの属性に染ま ろうとも、これが聖剣の頂点に立つ最強の斬撃兵器であることに変わりはない。

    Profile
    A form taken by Altria Alter, who resolved herself to wiping out her own image and attempted to carry out activities as the ally of children・Santa Claus.
    The sack she holds in her hand is packed with the best-selection of presents that she spent a whole year saving up.

    Level 1 Bond
    Height/Weight: 154cm・52kg
    Source: Miss "Almost Weekly" Santa Alter
    Region: Finland (allegedly)  Alignment: Lawful Good
    Gender: Female
    Because she has completely turned into Santa Claus, her personality has changed in various ways.

    Level 2 Bond
    Although she has changed into the Rider Class, it is not like there has been any dramatic changes.
    The increase in weight accounts for the weight of the presents.
    The lack of futility in her behavior and the cool-headed character are a close resemblance to Alter, but the admiration towards Santa Claus that lies at her root is making her a little more kind.

    Level 3 Bond
    The sleigh that Santa Alter rides has been handmade by herself.
    She boasts that it has been assembled from ash tree's wood while having a brave horse and a lion as a image, but - no matter how you look at it - it seems like nothing but a hippopotamus.
    Its name is Llamrei II.

    Level 4 Bond
    "Sword of Promised Victory"
    Rank: A++  Type: Anti-Fortress Noble Phantasm
    Excalibur Morgan.
    The sword of black aurora. Just as it is.
    The fact it has no twists in the name makes you feel the difference between the Servant that made an appearance in Halloween.
    An article that is entirely unnecessary for Santa Claus, but since monsters might come out during Christmas by some sort mistake, she won't lose anything by holding onto it.

    Level 5 Bond

    • Present of the Saint: C

    A Skill acquired by completely turning into Santa Claus.
    Enriching hearts by giving presents.
    However, because said presents' design is subtly different from what the targeted person requested, you cannot expect much from its effects.
    One could say she has a natural gift for making choices that subtly perturb the traumas of others.

    Interlude
    At any rate, I feel like eating turkey.

    ライダークラスになっているが、劇的な変化があるワケではない。

    サンタオルタが乗るソリは彼女の手作り。
    雄々しい馬とライオンをイメージしてトネリコの木の枝で組んだと本人は豪語するが、どうみてもカバにしか見えない。
