Sakura Matou (間桐 桜, Matō Sakura?) is an NPC character within the Moon Cell's virtual world.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

She is a NPC character based on the real Sakura Matou.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Sakura has long purple hair and matching eyes she wears a red ribbon on the left side of her head. She wears the standard Tsukumihara Academy female uniform with a few minor differences instead of a blue ribbon, Sakura wears a red ribbon with small white socks and a long matching lab coat.

In Fate/EXTRA CCC, she later wears the alternative navy sailor uniform with small white socks with a short length lab coat.


Personality[edit | edit source]

Sakura is very soft-spoken and caring; this personality is robotic and repetitive, as she was programmed to follow a specific role by the system of the Moon Cell. However, in certain situations, she can also display strange and out of character behaviors that creeps out Hakuno Kishinami.

Role[edit | edit source]

Fate/EXTRA[edit | edit source]

Sakura is first introduced as Shinji's younger sister who works in the nurse's office. As the end of the prologue approaches, Shinji realizes that, while he'd always wanted one, he'd never had a younger sister. Sakura's programming malfunctions during this revelation, exposing her as an NPC programmed to think she is related to Shinji.

During the Holy Grail War, Sakura resumes her position in the nurse's office, handing out weekly supplies to the participants and also tends to any injuries they may suffer during the War that are not a result of "standard" combat; it appears that if she were to leave the office too long, she could lose her job. She is well known among Masters and NPCs for her delicious lunches.

Last Encore[edit | edit source]

Sakura is first introduced in the infirmary, greeting Hakuno Kishinami and Rin Tohsaka when they carry in N.Amagi's body. After Sakura puts the body on a bed and covers it with a sheet, she remarks that the infirmary is running out of room. She asks Hakuno to carry another body to the incinerator, and he complies.

In a flashback, she treated a Master whom Dan Blackmore had injured. She looked on passively when Dan entered the infirmary to talk to him.

Fate/EXTRA CCC[edit | edit source]

During Fate/EXTRA CCC, she has a vastly expanded role. During the preliminaries, Kiara Sessyoin removed Sakura's constraints to her free will, she was unable to control her status abnormality and went into overload. Because the NPCs cannot do anything but routine work, they ignored Sakura who began to disintegrate as something "nonexistent" and since the Moon Cell's check was performed only at the end of the day during the preliminaries, Sakura was in a crisis of being extinguished.[2] The characters BB, Meltryllis, and Passionlip resemble her.

Her ending, the CCC route, has her utilize the power of the Moon Cell to grant Hakuno Kishinami a new human body on Earth. She is an AI, so she gives herself a body different from that of a human.[3]

Fate/EXTRA CCC Fox Tail[edit | edit source]

Her role is similar to Fate/EXTRA CCC.

Other appearances[edit | edit source]

She appears in TYPE-MOON Ace Omake Theater:

  • Fight!! Ms.Blossom Cost Chapter (「たたかえ!!ブロッサム先生 コスト編, Tatakae!! Burossamu-sensei Kosuto-hen?) - Archer, Caster and Saber fights Sakura, in order to save Hakuno. Due to her long, purple hair, she poses as Rider in the third episode of the TYPE-MOON MOVIE Ace 2nd specials, which causes others to call her Sakurider (サクライダー, Sakuraidā?). Her role is also mixed with the regular Sakura of Fate/stay night, allowing her to become Dark Sakura (黒桜, Kuro Sakura?).
  • Let Me Hear!! Ms.Blossom Merry Chrismas Chapter (きかせて!!ブロッサム先生 メリクリ編, Kikasete!! Burossamu-sensei Merikuri-hen?) - The Servants and Sakura celebrate Christmas.

    Keywords

    Cursed Cutting Crater (C. C. C.)
    An attack on the world by BB in control of the Moon Cell.
    Also called the spirit particle imaginary pit.
    A world purge by means of event rewriting, making maximum use of the EX skill “Potnia Theron” BB had acquired.
    The goddess who is the mother of the earth goddesses who created the earth is, in other words, the “root” that created all creation.
    This Noble Phantasm is an anti-world Noble Phantasm that outputs information like an ultra-precise 3d printer and crushes the present world with the world desired by the user.
    The space eroded by BB becomes imaginary space and a curse that consumes reality. CCC as the name suggests is a cursed pit that bores out reality.
    In addition to scattering all objects inside on an atomic level and reconstructing them, it is capable of writing over and rewriting information of fields such as luck and coincidence.
    While theoretical, it is also thought possible to distort the time axis by interfering with gravity fields and rewrite the law of cause and effect.
    When used in combat, BB’s familiars, the shapeshifters engulf the target, and after turning into a sphere, is wiped out of existence along with the target and the dimension with it.
    Normally, a structure in which value can be shared cannot be constructed in the far side of the world, which is imaginary space. What established BB’s internal world as the Sakura labyrinth was the power of this Noble Phantasm.

    Advanced Level AI
    An artificial intelligence configured according to their program. In this age, they are treated as things that "function as programs," but "do not exist as actual beings." In other words, things that "are" right in front of your eyes but "are not." They are merely a mechanisms for the sake of allowing human lives to progress smoothly.
    As it is the same for the SE.RA.PH, they are virtual lifeforms that are created along with the commencement of the Holy Grail War and disposed along with its completion.
    Within the SE.RA.PH. the humanoid virtual lifeforms are: the NPCs that perform only one task, AIs who have been granted the capability for self-judgement, and the advanced level AIs who have been trusted with the capability for self-judgement ad the management of a section.
    Advanced level AIs are things created to efficiently promote the Moon Cell's primary objective of "human observation." As they are perfect reproductions of humans, they have been programmed with a at least a soul, but while the soul "is there," it is contents are still colorless.
    The virtual lifeforms that the SE.RA.PH creates are reset with the round of the Holy Grail War. The NPCs and AIs return to zero, while advanced level AIs retain just their persona and their memories are reset--made to pretend that they never existed.
    When the Holy Grail War is over, the one who is left alive is the Master standing at the summit. This is a fact that applies not just to the Masters but is also held in common by the virtual lifeforms that the SE.RA.PH created.
    It appears that BB is an advanced level AI entrusted with managing the health of the Masters, the same as Sakura. However, as she is now rampaging for reasons unknown, the methods she uses to "manage the Masters" have become extreme.

    Khakkhara of Direction
    The teacher's pointer that BB carries. A device that allows her to use her use her authority as an advanced level AI to its fullest. There are restrictions from the far side of the moon, but with this, BB can revise the game rules (spirit particle laws within the SE.RA.PH)
    The ten crowns of direction worn by the Beast of Babylon converted into a teacher's cane. This is due to the theory that the seven-headed beast is male, which opposes the theory that it is female; it's true nature is a phallus (an erect rod).
    The symbol of the king of the world who was granted power and authority by a great dragon and, during a period of 42 months, spat as many arrogant words as they desired and had received the right to desecrate all things.
    The beasts heads are the seven hills of the Roman Empire... Capitolium, Palatium, Aventinus, Esquilinus, Caelius, Quirinalis, Viminalis. In other words, it symbolized the Roman Empire itself, and those ten horns were symbols of... Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Vespasianus, Titus, Galba, Otho, Vitellius... those emperors.

    01 - C. C. C.カースド・カッティング・クレーター
    ムーンセルを掌握したBBによる、世界を犯す攻撃。
    霊子虚構陥穽とも。

    BBが獲得したEXスキル『百獣受胎ポトニア・テローン』を最大限に活用した、事象書き換えによるワールド・パージ。

    大地を創造した地母神たちの母にあたる女神とは、即ち、万物を生み出した「根源」である。
    この宝具はその情報を超精密立体プリンターとして出力し、使用者の望むままの世界で、いまある世界を握りつぶす対界宝具である。

    BBに侵食された空間は虚数空間となり、現実を蝕む呪いとなる。『C.C.C.』はその名の通り、現実をえぐり切り取る呪いの大穴なのだ。


    その場にある物体を原子単位までばらばらにして再構成する他、運不運、偶然といった場の情報を書き換えて再出力する事もできる。
    理論上の話になるが、重力場に干渉すれば時間軸を歪めて因果律を書き換える事も可能とされる。

                 ◆

    戦闘に使用した場合、BBの使い魔であるシェイプシフターが対象を包み、球体化したのち、対象と共に次元ごと消滅する。

    本来、虚数空間である月の裏側において、価値観を共有できる構造体は創造できない。
    BBの心象世界をサクラ迷宮として成立させていたのも、この宝具の力である。

    02 - 上級AI
    プログラムによって構成された人工知能。
    この時代では『プログラムとして機能しているが』
    『存在として成立しないもの』とされている。
    つまり、目の前に『有る』が『無い』もの。
    人間の生活をスムーズに進めるための機構にすぎない。

    それはSE.RA.PHにおいても同様で、彼らは聖杯戦争開始と共に作られ、終了と共に廃棄される仮想生命体とされる。

    SE.RA.PHにおける人間型の仮想生命は、単一の目的だけをこなすNPC、自己判断資格を与えられたAI、自己判断資格とセクション管理を任された上級AIがある。

    上級AIはムーンセルの主目的である『人間観察』を効率的に進めるために作られたもの。
    人間を完全に再現しており、魂すらプログラムされているが魂は『有る』だけで、その中身は無色のまま。

    SE.RA.PHに作られた仮想生命たちは、その回の聖杯戦争が終了するとリセットされる。
    NPCやAIはゼロに返るが、上級AIはパーソナルだけ残し、その記録はリセット————無かった事にされる。

    聖杯戦争が終わった時、生き残るのは頂点に立ったマスターだけ。
    それはマスターだけではなく、SE.RA.PHに作られた仮想生命たちも共通なのだ。

                 ◆

    BBは桜と同じく、マスターたちの健康管理を任された上級AIと思われる。
    しかし原因不明の暴走により、『マスターを管理する』 方法が極端なものになってしまったようだ。

    03 - 支配の錫杖
    BBが持つ教鞭。
    上級AIとしての権限をフルに使用できるデバイス。
    月の裏側限定ではあるが、これによってBBはSE.RA.PH内の霊子法則ゲームルールを変更する事ができる。

                 ◆

    バビロンの獣がかぶる『十の支配の王冠』を教鞭に変えたもの。
    これは七つの首の獣が女性原理に対応する男性原理であり、その本質はファロス(まっすぐな棒)だからである。

    大いなる竜から王座と権威を与えられ、さらに42ヶ月の間、どれだけ不遜な言葉を吐いてもよく、あらゆるものを冒涜する権利を与えられたという世界の王の象徴。

    獣の首はローマ帝国の七つの丘……
    カピトリウム、パラティウム、アウェンティヌス、エスクイリヌス、カエリウス、クイリナリス、ウィミナリス、すなわちローマ帝国そのものを意味し、十の角はその皇帝……
    アウグストゥス、ティベリウス、カリグラ、クラウディウス、ネロ、ウェスパシアヌス、ティトゥス、ガルバ、 オト、ウィテリウス……を象徴している。

    Skills

    Golden Grail [EX]
    The golden grail that BB possesses. The Holy Grail. The Holy Grail that grants its owner's impudent and selfish desires.
    The grail that the great enchantress who appears in The Revelation of St. John the Divine holds. Though it's a counterfeit Holy Grail, it's because that it's a counterfeit Holy Grail that it's become a "genuine" Holy Grail that grants the desires of humans without paying heed to right or wrong.
    To the Christians of those days, who considered honorable poverty a virtue, this grail, which was formed as a symbol of treasures such as gold, is no doubt the meaning of corrupt wealth, greed, and the vanity that leads one to adorn oneself.
    Though it is clear on the occasion that this grail is held by the great enchantress of Babylon which in the personification of the Roman Empire, this grail symbolizes the wealth of the earth, which is the inversion of Christ's words, "Do not pile up the wealth of the earth."
    "I saw a single woman astride a red beast. This beast, whose entire body was full of numerous blasphemous names, had seven heads and ten horns."
    This is the description of the beast of destruction that appeared in the Holy City and the woman who was straddling this beast, according to the book of Revelation. A large beast with seven heads like a hydra came from the sea and disembarked toward the Holy City. This beast and woman, while two, are as one, and it is impossible to think of them separately.
    It is said that this woman was born from evil, and those who are quick to anger, those who are greedy, cannot resist her allure and become corrupted by that grail.
    This is a digression, but it is sad that the red Saber who claims the title of emperor was, after her death, was seen by believers to be on par with this beast.

    Self-Modification [EX]
    A skill that allows one to restructure oneself. AIs created by the Moon Cell are under an absolute rule, "Improving one's functionality is not allowed."
    However, BB, who had escaped that yoke due to her breaking down, began to expand her own functions. In order to boost her calculating power, she had that black noise prey on and dismantle NPCs, AIs, and finally, Servants, and utilized them as her own memory.
    Though they were appendix-like additions that won't spare her from the fate of collapsing on her own, BB has changed into a hyper level AI who holds an enormous amount of capacity. Like the towns on reclaimed land that continue to build architecture while knowing that it will be swallowed by water or Frakenstein's monster.

    Potnia Theron [EX]
    Potnia Theron (Conception of All Animals).
    The authority of the goddesses whom BB compiled and absorbed from the abyss of the mooncell.
    What it is is the embodiment of the power of creation possessed by the mother goddesses, originating from a forgotten goddess approximately 8000 years ago (the goddess of Çatalhöyük), and branching to Tiamat and Cybele, Ishtar, Inanna, Athena, Astarte, Gaia, Hera, Artemis, Aphrodite, Demeter, Athena, etc.
    Many are imaged with mural crowns. This is because many of the goddesses were also the guardian deities of cities.
                 ◆
    The symbols of this authority are the holes opening in the earth and the sky (caves and the moon), the whirlpools and typhoons of the sea, the craters of volcanos, and so on, and from these, evils bringing forth all manners of death are birthed.
    But once these evils have finished spreading death, they leave the promise of good harvest and fertility. This authority is none other than the power of bringing death as well as giving life.
    The earth mother is a guardian deity revered by the people and their protector, and at the same time she is the sacrifice that feeds them with the crops born from her body and the beasts of the fields and the forests.
    The earth mother feeds man with her blood and flesh, kills man over time and absorbs him as nutrition, and once again feeds man with her replenished blood and flesh.
    This process is the circle of the food chain, and the cycle of life and death can be said to be the true nature of the earth mother. With this authority, most of the goddesses gave birth to countless monsters and giants and posed a threat to the gods and man, or they gave birth to heroes and became protectors of man.
    Tiamat and Gaia are examples of those who became threats, and Hera is an example of a mother of heroes.
                 ◆
    Those born on this earth cannot defy the authority of the earth mother, as that would mean rebelling against the system of life itself.
    However, it is when they have left this earth to go into outer space and ended the infantile stage of intelligent lifeforms that they should no longer be bound to this authority..
    The wish of Çatalhöyük is the coming of that day.

    01 - 黄金の杯:[EX]
    BBが持つ黄金の杯。聖杯とも。
    持ち主の厚顔で自分勝手な願い事を叶える負の聖杯。

    ヨハネ黙示録にある、バビロンの大妖婦が持っていた杯。
    偽聖杯であるが、偽の聖杯であるからこそ、正邪問わずに人間の欲望を叶える“本物の”聖杯となっている。

    当時の清貧を美徳としたキリスト教徒にとって、金などという財の象徴で形作られた杯は、まさしく汚れた富と強欲、そして己を飾ろうとする虚偽を意味するものであった。

    ローマ帝国の化身であるバビロンの大妖婦が手にする杯という時点で明瞭であるが、この杯はキリストの「地に富を積んではならない」と言う言葉を反転させた、地上の富を象徴している。

                 ◆

    “わたしは、赤い獣にまたがっている一人の女を見た。
    この獣は、全身至るところ神を冒涜する数々の名で覆われており、七つの頭と十本の角があった。”

    これは黙示録曰く、聖都に現れた滅びの獣と、その獣にまたがっていた女の描写である。
    七つの頭を持つヒュドラの如き巨大な獣は海より現れ、聖都に上陸したという。
    この獣と女は二つで一つであり、切り離して考える事はできない。

    女はすべての邪悪を生み出すものとされ、短慮なる者、欲深き者は彼女の誘惑に逆らえず、その杯によって堕落したという。

    余談ではあるが、皇帝を名乗る赤いセイバーはその死後、信徒たちにこの獣と同一視され敵視されたという。

    02 - 自己改造:[EX]
    自身を改造するスキル。
    ムーンセルによって作られたAIには“機能を向上させてはならない”という絶対命令が備わっている。

    しかし、故障によりそのくびきから逃れたBBは自己機能の拡張を始めてしまった。
    計算能力を高めるためにNPC、AI、はてはサーヴァントまで黒いノイズで捕食・分解し、自らのメモリとして使用。

    自己崩壊をいとわない後付け増築だが、結果、BBは膨大な容量を持つ超級AIと化した。
    その有様は沈水しながらも建築を続ける埋め立て地の都市か、フランケンシュタインの怪物のようでもある。

    03 - 百獣母胎:[EX]
    百獣母胎ポトニア・テローン
    それはBBがムーンセルの深淵より編纂し、取り込んだ女神の権能である。

    約8000年前のすでに名の失われた女神(チャタル・ヒュユクの女神)より発し、 ティアマットやキュベレー、イシュタル、イナンナ、アナテ、アスタルテ、ガイア、ヘラ、アルテミス、アフロディーテ、デメテル、アテナなどに派生した、母なる女神の持つ万物を生み出す力の具現である。

    多くは城壁冠の形をとってイメージされる。
    これはこれらの女神の多くが、同時に都市の守護神でもあったからだ。

                 ◆

    大地や空に開いた門(洞窟や月)、海の渦潮や竜巻、火山の火口などに象徴され、そこからあらゆる死をもたらす害悪を生み出す。
    ただし、その害悪は死をまき散らした後、確かな豊穣や多産を約束するもの。
    この権能は死と同時に生を生み出す力に他ならない。

    大地母神は人々によって崇められ、それらを加護する守護神であると同時に、その身から生まれ出る穀物や作物、野や森の獣によって人々を養う犠牲そのものでもある。

    大地母神は自らの血肉によって人を養い、そして時を経ればその人を殺して自らの糧として己の血肉を回復し、またその回復した血肉で人を養う。

    この過程は食物連鎖の円環そのものでもあり、この生と死の循環こそが大地母神の本質と言っていい。
    ほとんどの女神はこの権能で、無数の怪物や巨人を生んで神々や人の脅威となり、あるいは英雄を生み、それから人々を守った。

    その代表例は、脅威となったならばティアマットやガイア、英雄の母ならばヘラである。

                 ◆

    この大地に生まれたものは、母なる神の権能には逆らえない。それは生命のシステムそのものに反逆する事だからだ。
    しかし大地を離れ、宇宙を目指し、知性体としての幼年期を終えた時こそ、この権能が打ち破れる事だろう。

    チャタル・ヒュユクの願いは、その日が訪れる事にある。

    Setting

    Spirit Particle Imaginary Trap
    Cursed Cutting Crater (Spirit Particle Imaginary Trap)
    The official name of this stage.
    The fact that BB had reached the Moon Cell core established this “place”, formerly imaginary space for storing malicious information, as real space in the present, past, and future. It was reconstructed at her hands as a “far side of the moon” where even Masters can exist.
    BB attaining the power of the primordial goddess succeeded in quantifying the “nothingness” before the birth of life. She transformed into a master of imaginary space where time and space are indefinite.
    While the Moon Cell can’t be hacked however much time is spent, BB was able to take control of it by placing herself in “unlimited time”.

    02 The remnants of peaceful days
    After the constraints to her free will were removed by Kiara, she was unable to control her status abnormality and went into overload.
    As NPCs can only do routine work, they ignored Sakura while she was crashing down as being “non-existent”, and since the mooncell only performs a check at the end of the day in the preliminaries, Sakura was within an inch of termination.
    (MC name) witnessing this called to her. Are you okay, he/she said.
    The observation of Sakura “being here” by a third party helped her recover her close to disappearing unconscious, and the subsequent nursing gave her a clear ego of “wanting to be here”. Her self-destruction was averted.
                 ◆
    What happened afterwards need not be said.
    When the next day comes, everything will be erased by the mooncell. Sakura wanting to continue this one day miracle used her higher class AI privilege to repeat the day she came to know the MC for 69 days.
    However as time passed, Sakura came to suffer from her self-contradiction as an AI and from the fact that she dragged (MC name) into this.
    “The Masters participating in the holy grail war will all die, barring one exception. No, even then (MC name)…..”
    Sakura continued to suffer from her desire to continue the loop for eternity and her feelings for (MC name)
    The decision she chose ultimately was to seal the 69 days worth of memory, the love she acquired, so she could return to being a normal AI.
    An AI cannot delete records.
    Because of that, she moved the memory to a backup machine to reset herself.
    Believing that to be the best choice for (MC name).
                 ◆
    But even if the memories in the mind are lost, the memories recorded by the body continue to live. Though she had forgotten everything and was back to being a normal AI, she was shaken by emotional values of unknown origin every time she talked with the MC.
    Meanwhile, the backup to which she moved her memory, couldn’t tolerate herself, and she decided her course of action and made her move as BB, the rebel plotting to destroy the system of the mooncell for a certain objective.
    The timing she took control of the far side of the moon was between the end of the fifth round and the beginning of the sixth in real time. Four Masters who were not defeated yet, (MC name), Leo, Rin, and Rani, and the irregular exception Jinako were kidnapped to the far side during the war while they were still alive.
    Matou Shinji, Gato, Julius were moved to imaginary space 0.00001 seconds before the firewall would have destroyed them after they were defeated, prolonging their flash of life.
    Regardless, CCC is a dream by BB.
    If the dreamer is no more, the world ought to return to a reality where nothing happened.
                 ◆
    By the way, the everyday scenery in the prologue that (MC name) saw in his nightmare was an artificial paradise modeled off the discarded 69 days.
    After pulling (MC name) to the near side, BB placed his digital body in the old school building, putting into a deep sleep and sealing him in a never ending dream.
    Normally, he would have lived peacefully in the looping everyday life, but the strength of his bond with his Servant, or his own will rejecting the peaceful days caused cracks in the artificial garden and (MC name) came to notice something was not right.
    In order to place (MC name) into deep slumber once more, BB reset the school building and tried to redo the dream, but the (MC name) escaped the reset and leaped into a deeper part of imaginary space
    It was a depth deeper than the bottom of Id.
    “The death of the collective unconscious” beneath the unconscious.
    What saved (MC name) who leaped into a region even BB cannot affect was the voice of the Servant whose fate was shared with his.
    Thus, the contract was sealed, and (MC name) woke up in the old school building left in the far side.

    01 - 霊子虚構陥穽
    霊子 虚構 陥穽カースド・カッティング・クレーター

    この舞台の正式名称。
    悪性情報を貯蔵するだけの虚数空間だった“ここ”は、BBがムーンセル中枢に到達した事実をもって、現在・過去・未来において実数空間として成立。
    彼女の手によって、マスターたちでも存在できる“月の裏側”として再構築された。

                 ◆

    原初の女神の力を手に入れたBBは生命が生まれる前の『無』を数値化する事に成功。
    時間も空間もあやふやな虚数空間の使い手に変革した。

    どれほどの時間を要しようがハッキングできないムーンセルだが、BBは『無限の時間』の概念に自分を置く事で攻略した。

    02 - 日々の名残
    日々の名残:
    予選中、キアラの手によって自由性を解放された彼女はそのステータス異常を制御できずに過負荷を起こした。

    NPCたちはルーチンワークしかできないため、自壊しかけていた桜を“無い”ものとしてスルーし、予選ではムーンセルのチェックは一日の終わりにしか行われないため、桜は消滅の危機にあった。

    その異常を目の当たりにした岸波白野は彼女に呼びかける。大丈夫か、と。

    桜は“自分はここにいる”という他者からの観測を受けて消滅寸前だった無意識を持ち直し、その後の看病によって明確に“ここに在りたい”という自我を獲得。自己消滅から免れた。

                 ◆

    その後の事はもはや語るまでもない。
    翌日になればすべてムーンセルの手によって消されてしまう。この、たった一日の奇蹟を続けたがった桜は上級AIの特権を使用して
    “岸波白野と知り合った一日”を69日間、繰り返した。

    しかし日が進むにつれ桜はAIとしての自己矛盾と、岸波白野を取り巻くある事実に苦しむ事になる。

    “聖杯戦争に参加したマスターは、ひとりを除いてみな死亡する。いや、そもそも岸波白野は————”

    桜は幸せな時間を永遠にループしていたという我欲と、岸波白野への思いに苦しみ続けた。
    結論として、彼女は正常なAIに戻るため、69日に及ぶメモリー……獲得した“愛”を封印する道を選んだ。
    AIには記録を消す事はできない。
    そのため、バックアップの機体にメモリーを移動させる事で自らをリセットしたのだ。

    それが岸波白野にとって、もっとも正しい選択と信じて。

                 ◆

    だが精神の記憶は失っても、肉体が記録した思い出は生き続ける。
    すべてを忘れ正常なAIに戻ったはずの彼女は、岸波白野と話すたびに正体不明の感情値に揺れ動かされる事になる。

    一方、メモリーを移植されたバックアップはそんな自分を許せず、ある目的のためムーンセルのシステムを破壊する反逆者・BBとして自らの方針を定め、行動を開始した。

    彼女が月の裏側を掌握したタイミングは、現実時間で“聖杯戦争 五回戦終了~六回戦開始前”。
    まだ敗退していなかった岸波白野、レオ、凛、ラニの四名、そしてイレギュラーのジナコは聖杯戦争の途中、生きている状態で月の裏側に拉致された。


    間桐シンジ、ガトー、ユリウス、といったマスターは聖杯戦争で敗れた後、ファイヤーウォールによって消滅する“0.00001秒前”に虚数空間に移動させられ、一瞬の命を長らえていた。

    どちらにせよ、C.C.C.はBBが見ていた夢である。
    夢を見ていたものが消え去れば、世界はもとの、何事もなかった現実に戻るだろう。

                 ◆

    また、余談ではあるが岸波白野が悪夢として見た冒頭の日常風景は、捨てられた69日間をモデルにして作られた人工楽園である。
     
    BBは岸波白野を月の裏側に引きずりこんだ後、旧校舎にその電脳体を安置させ、深い眠りに落とし、覚めない夢の中に閉じこめた。

    通常ならループする日常の中で平和に過ごすのだが、サーヴァントとの強い繋がり、あるいは、安寧の日常を否定する岸波の意思によって人工楽園に綻びが生じ、岸波は異常に気がつくのだった。

    BBはもう一度岸波白野を深い眠りに落とすため、校舎をリセットして夢をやり直そうとしたが、岸波はそのリセットからも逃れ、虚数空間の更なる深部に飛びこんでしまう。

    そこはイドの底のさらに底。
    無意識の下にある、“集合無意識の死”である。
    BBでさえ手を出せない領域に飛びこんだ岸波白野を救ったのは、運命を共にするサーヴァントの声だった。

    かくして契約は交わされ、岸波白野は月の裏側に残された旧校舎で目を覚ます事になる。

  3. [v] Fate/EXTRA material - Encyclopedia: CCC True End Protagonist [Spoilers], p.185 [T]

    CCC True End Protagonist [spoilers]
    This section is about when the protagonist wakes up during the True End and he/she is not in the private Japanese facility where his/her original is slumbering. He/she is in a completely different location, which is an abandoned medical facility.
    In the conclusion of Heaven’s Fall, Sakura mentions something at the end about a “big cheat.” This refers to Moon Cell employing all of its capabilities to send the protagonist to Earth.
    This means that the protagonist’s consciousness is reincarnated in the real world with an artificially created human body.
    (Since Sakura is an AI, the base of her existence is different from that of humans.)
    After that, since they are now far from the Moon, Sakura and the protagonist have no means of finding out what happened with the Holy Grail War.
    Perhaps Leo won and is facing off against Moon Cell in Moon Cell Nucleus. Or one of the other remaining Masters might have won, so possibly Rin or Rani.
    Or is it true to history and the weakest Master, who was not involved in the events of CCC, made it to the Nucleus?
    There are countless possibilities, all which speak of a hope filled future.

    CCC真ENDの主入公【ネタバレ】
    真ENDで目覚める主人公ですが、あれは『元になった彼/彼女』が眠っている日本の私設ではなく、まったく違う場所にある、放棄された医療施設での話。
    天の逆月の終わり、最後に桜が言った「すごいズル」とは、ムーンセルの技術を総動員して、CCCの主人公を地上に送り出す事でした。
    ようは人工的に作られた完全な人間体に意識を転生させたということ。
    (桜は元がAIなので、人間とは違うまた別の素体)
    その後、月の聖杯戦争がどうなったのかは月から離れた二人に知るよしはない。
    レオが勝者になってムーンセル中枢で彼と対決するのか、はたまた生き残るのは凛かラニか。
    あるいは正史通り、CCCという出来事を切り離した、最弱のマスターが中枢に至るのか。
    それは数限りない、可能性という名の希望に満ちた未来の話である。
