This thread will attempt to separate and categorize characters throughout all of Type-Moon's works into different tiers based on their overall traits and capabilities. This is not intended as a direct method of deciding who is superior to whom. Rather it is simply a way to organize the exceptionally large roster of characters the "Nasuverse" has gathered over the years.
The tier system will be based on the parameter chart from the Fate franchise, where "E" represents the lowest tier and "EX" represents the highest. Each tier ranking will come accompanied with a short explanation of what types of characters to expect to be listed within as well as a set of Reason Codes that will give examples of traits and abilities said characters may possess. With each individual character a brief description of why that Reason Code applies to them will be provided.
This tier is comprised of Divine Spirits, Ultimate Ones, Beasts Of Calamity, Grand Servants, Dead Apostle Ancestors, and a few other characters whose influence is extremely profound within their universal timeline and/or holds a great deal of significance to the grander scheme of that particular story.
Reason Codes 1 - The character exists on a different dimensional plane or otherwise outside of regular space-time 2 - The character's existence is nigh impossible to truly extinguish or does not possess any concept of "death" at all 3 - The character has extensive reality warping potential via some form of Authority or an equivalent power 4 - The character has substantial destructive capacity on a planetary scale or higher 5 - The character is compared to in caliber or stated/implied to be a threat to others in this tier
1 - She exists outside of the time axis. 2 - Even after the fall of the Age Of Gods she remains an extremely prominent Divine Spirit. 3 - She holds Divine Authority over the Sun. 4 - Reason Code 3 implies this. Character Material also states she is more powerful than several hundred thousand Servants. She is heavily implied to be a Beast Of Calamity. 5 - She is implied to be a threat to several other characters in this tier such as Tiamat, Sephyr, and possibly Velber. Nasu declared her the most powerful being in Fate/Extra and CCC, and further stated that Arcueid would be the only one capable of challenging her with even the slightest hope of victory.
1 - She exists on the Reverse Side Of The World, a different layer of Gaia's Reality Marble, after her defeat and dismemberment at the hands of the Sumerian deities. 2 - Her existence does not possess a concept of "death". 3 - Her Authority Of The Beast works on anything that was birthed from a womb and the Chaos Tide rewrites the existence of other beings on a cellular level. 4 - Her Chaos Tide would have covered the planet had she not been dragged into the Underworld. She is one of the Beasts Of Calamity.
1 - His temple Ars Paulina exists outside of the universe as well as typical space-time. 2 - The concept of "death" doesn't apply to Goetia or the Demon Gods within Ars Paulina. 3 - Through use of the unparalleled mana reserves of Ars Almadel Salomonis he was capable of altering time and erasing the concept of "death" from reality entirely. 4 - Ars Almadel Salomonis is composed of a hundred million rings of light each as powerful as the Noble Phantasm Excalibur. Collectively they are the size of North America and can pierce straight through a planet, effectively destroying it, when launched as an attack. He is one of the Beasts Of Calamity.
2 - Her Independent Manifestation ability makes her extremely difficult to kill without heavy conceptual influences. Her existence became something greater than the Demon God Zepar who originally possessed her in Fate/Grand Order. 3 - She can freely alter information within the Moon Cell's Reality Marbles at will. 4 - Her Noble Phantasm Heaven's Hole is one with widespread empathic manipulation of planetary proportions. She is a Beast Of Calamity. 5 - She absorbs BB and the Alteregos in the true route of Fate/Extra CCC.
2 - It does not possess any concept of "death" registered under Gaia's reality. 3 - Its ability Crystal Valley functions like an autonomous Reality Marble that warps the world around it. 5 - At one point Nasu declared Type Mercury to be the most powerful being in all works by Type-Moon.
2 - Her existence lacks any concept of "death" perceivable by the Mystic Eyes Of Death Perception. 3 - Her Marble Phantasm can alter surroundings in whatever way she chooses and even manipulate probability. 4 - She can use her Marble Phantasm to affect vast surfaces of the planet or stop its rotation entirely.
1 - Her existence after merging with the Moon Cell Core is described as one in which time has little to no bearing on. 3 - She can freely alter information within the Reality Marbles crafted by the Moon Cell. 4 - Her Noble Phantasm Cursed Cutter Crater erases information from existence.
4 - Her sole function is to destroy entire civilizations, becoming more powerful as she does so. She is described as an apocalypse. 5 - She battled and defeated several divine entities in this tier during her invasion of Earth.
1 - She intended to preserve the souls of humanity gathered through the Holy Selection for eternity in an apparent Reality Marble inside of Rhongomyniad, ultimately protecting them from Solomon's (Demon King Goetia) armageddon. Rhongomyniad itself acts as an anchor that keeps Gaia's Reality Marble's from overlapping. 2 - She is not actually defeated at the end of the Camelot chapter but merely backs down after having some of Artoria's memories restored by Excalibur thus weakening the influence of Rhongomyniad on her. 3 - Rhongomyniad's power reached a level equivalent to Divine Authority, and caused extreme gravitational fluctuations that accelerated the collapse of the relevant singularity.
5 - His Grand Caster vessel is what Demon King Goetia possessed in order to accomplish his goals. Using the same vessel Solomon would have the same capabilities in theory. Grand Servants were originally intended to combat Beasts Of Calamity.
3 - His Noble Phantasm Azrael severs a target's fate in a similar manner to the Mystic Eyes Of Death Perception and can even embed a concept of "death" to beings that are otherwise immortal. 5 - Grand Servants were originally intended to combat Beasts Of Calamity. Gawain feared he was capable of killing the Lion King.
2 - He does not possess a concept of "death" registered under Gaia's reality. 4 - He created a mirror image of the Moon and attempted to collide it with Earth. 5 - His existence as Type Moon is essentially identical to Arcueid Brunestud's when she is at her most powerful.
3 - He is capable of damaging and destroying Ultimate Ones, who do not possess any concept of "death" registered under Gaia's reality. 4 - His Knight Arm Slash Emperor alters its size based on that of the target and causes extensive damage to the planet when used due to the sheer amount of True Ether required. 5 - He defeated Type Jupiter and Type Saturn.
1 - It is said that time doesn't apply to him in the same manner as other beings. 2 - He doesn't exist as a physical being but is instead something more abstract in nature like a curse. He is essentially a Reality Marble itself called TATARI and manifests as the true fears of those around him. He is said to be immortal, and that only on a night when the crimson Moon shines does he have mortal traits. 3 - TATARI warps reality in whatever way necessary to achieve a true representation of someone's fears, even creating copies of other beings such as Dead Apostle Ancestors.
1 - Her existence is basically the same as Night Of Wallachia, as she is a manifestation of TATARI itself that later becomes it after he's gone. 2 - She is a conceptual entity rather than a physical being. Even if defeated or destroyed she can return so long as certain conditions are met. 3 - She can utilize TATARI for reality warping. She manipulates time in Melty Blood to set everything back one year and alters the memories of those affected.
2 - She is a Dead Apostle Ancestor and considered Arcueid's sister, thus making her a similar type of existence. 3 - She's responsible for creating the TATARI for Zepia, who later becomes Night Of Wallachia. 4 - She has control over Primate Murder, a fellow Dead Apostle Ancestor and a Beast Of Calamity.
3 - He revived Mash’s body and soul after she is incinerated by King Goetia’s Ars Almadel Salomonis at the end of Fate Grand Order. 4 - He is one of the Beasts Of Calamity. 5 - He is one of the Twenty-seven Dead Apostle Ancestors, but like Type Mercury is said to be beyond the rest as well as most all Servants.
This tier is comprised of some of the most powerful Servants, True Ancestors, Dead Apostle Ancestors, along with other characters of similar standings.
Reason Codes 1 - The character has weapons or abilities that operate on a conceptual level and may affect the existential nature of things. 2 - The character possesses destructive capacities capable of altering exceptionally large land masses. 3 - The character has defensive capabilities that are extremely difficult to circumvent, potentially requiring certain conditions to be met. 4 - The character's versatility nearly always causes the circumstances to be in their favor 5 - The character is a notable threat to one in the EX Tier, even if they may not be capable of defeating them outright. 6 - The character is stated/implied to be comparable to another in the same tier.
1 - He is the wielder of the Second Magic that allows for the manipulation of space-time. He most commonly uses this power to traverse parallel realities. The artifacts he crafts possess similar abilities that involve interacting with alternate worlds. 2 - He deflected a copy of the Moon being sent towards the planet during his battle against Type Moon. 5 - He defeated Type Moon, though was left permanently weakened afterward.
1 - She is the owner of the Fifth Magic that allows for the manipulation of time, either directly or indirectly. The Fifth Magic is dangerous enough that the Counter Force triggers when she activates it in Mahou Tsukai no Yoru. 2 - When she uses the Fifth Magic in Mahou Tsukai no Yoru and begins shifting time the landscape and seasons change as she alters the time axis. 3 - She can use the Fifth Magic to shift herself outside the time axis at will to avoid attacks. She also displays immunity to powers that alter the flow of time like that of the TATARI. 4 - The Fifth Magic’s ability to control the sequencing of events makes her virtually impossible to combat in most situations. With it she revives her friend from the dead by moving his time of death further down the time axis. She also adds ten years to her own time in order to gain the experience in Magecraft necessary to defeat her sister Touko, who is considered one of the most talented Mages in the world. 5 - She is said to be a threat to Arcueid. 6 - As one of the only other living Magicians she is often compared to Zelretch.
1 - Ea tears through space-time itself, making it practically impossible to defend against. It is capable of causing mass extinction on the planet by destroying Gaia's Reality Marbles. The binding potential of the Chains Of Heaven become stronger the higher the target's Divinity. As a result an entity such as a Divine Spirit would be incapable of breaking free. 2 - Ea's Enuma Elish has an extremely wide area of effect. 3 - His golden armor is exceptionally durable, withstanding a reflected attack from Gram with only minor damage and remaining intact even after being struck by a point-blank blast from Excalibur in the Fate route of the original visual novel. 4 - The Gate Of Babylon is basically the definition of versatility, containing the archetypes of nearly all Noble Phantasms. 5 - He is one of the primary Servants responsible for defeating Tiamat after she is cursed with mortality in Fate/Grand Order. He is implied to be a threat to Sephyr. 6 - He is often regarded as the most powerful Servant.
1 - Vasavi Shakti is stated to be capable of destroying virtually anything it strikes, to the point of rendering all kinds of existences meaningless. Its Anti-Divine properties activate in the face of divinity and increase its power proportionately. 2 - Brahmastra Kundala is classified as an "Anti-Country" Noble Phantasm, and likened to nuclear weaponry. 3 - His Kavacha and Kundala passively reduce the potency of all incoming attacks to 1/10 of their original value. 5 - It is implied he defeats Sephyr using Vasavi Shakti in one route of Fate/Extella. With Vasavi Shakti he is potentially a threat to many characters in the EX Tier. 6 - He is regularly compared to Gilgamesh in terms of power and considered one of the strongest Servants.
1 - Within Ramesseum Tentyris, which is similar to a Reality Marble, he is immortal and will recover when damaged or revive when "killed". 2 - His flying ship Mesektet was capable of destroying all of Japan in a matter of hours. The energy of the Dendera Light from Ramesseum Tentyris is compared to a solar flare and feared to be able to vaporize Tokyo in a single strike. 3 - The inner walls of the temple complex are durable enough to withstand multiple attacks from "Anti-Army" classed Noble Phantasms without receiving so much as a scratch. It also survived an attack from Rhongomyniad, granted with heavy damage. 4 - Ramesseum Tentyris has several other perks aside from local immortality and the Dendera Light already mentioned. It houses various Phantasmal Beasts throughout including Sphinxes that are legitimate threats to Servants. These creatures share the immortality aspect of Ozymandias himself while inside the temple. It also contains a curse that can instantly kill humans and continuously weakens stronger intruders while sealing away their abilities.
1 - She wields a variant of Gae Bolg, the spear that alters causality to land strikes and never misses its target. Her version also paralyzes what it touches by "sewing" it in space. 3 - She is effectively immortal. She cannot die so long as Gaia still exists. Even her own attempts at suicide failed. 4 - Her Wisdom Of The Haunted Ground ability allows her to use any Personal Skill belonging to other Servants so long as it is not unique to just one. Her Primordial Runes are shown to be capable of quite a lot of things ranging from summoning her own Servants using herself as a catalyst, forcibly changing a Servant’s class, and causing widespread memory alteration on an entire civilization. 5 - She is referred to as a slayer of gods, and even has a Personal Skill called God Slayer that could make her a potential threat to some in the EX Tier. 6 - She is easily one of the most powerful Servants, able to battle Cu Chulainn Alter in Fate/Grand Order who is an oddity amongst Servants with power sourced from a Holy Grail.
1 - He is said to be capable of acting as a wish granting device in a similar fashion to the Holy Grail due to his extreme mana reserves. 2 - His version of Enuma Elish draws power from Gaia, making it truly planetary in scale. It is confused for the Counter Force activating in Fate/strange fake and covers a sizable portion of the northern hemisphere. 3 - He is nearly impossible to slay conventionally since he can regenerate from even severe damage so long as a mana source is present, such as the World's. 4 - He has the most balanced stat parameters of any Servant and can raise one by lowering another to adjust during combat. He can create and copy thousands of Noble Phantasms at a time using the earth that are just as powerful as those within the Gate Of Babylon. He is also a shapeshifter and can take on any form he chooses or alter parts of his body into weapons. 6 - He is the only being Gilgamesh ever acknowledged as his equal. They battled for three days without a clear victor in the end.
1 - His shield Akhilleus Kosmos can defend against virtually any attack by using a Bounded Field to create a separate world in which said attack is absorbed. His conceptual Noble Phantasm Dromeus Kometes invokes the myth that he is the fastest hero of all eras, automatically making him faster than any others on the battlefield. He can use his spear to form a pocket dimension that exists outside of regular space-time in which assistance from allies, elements of luck, and other such factors cannot impede on the fair dual within. 3 - Andreias Amarantos passively nullifies any and all attacks against him from those who do not possess divinity, and even weakening attacks from those who do. 5 - It's said in Fate/apocrypha that he is the only one of the fourteen Servants of the Great Holy Grail War capable of challenging Karna with any real hope at victory.
1 - Her Sword Of Mars slices through the very fabric of space, opening gaps in dimensions. 2 - Teardrop Photon Ray calls forth a massive beam of energy from the sky that wreaks havoc on the land below in a similar manner to orbital bombardment. 4 - Any item she takes ahold of can become the Sword Of Mars, making it very difficult to remove the Noble Phantasm from her possession. 5 - She is the Heroic Spirit version of Sephyr. She defeated her own White Titan form in Fate/Extella. 6 - She is compared to Top Servants such as Gilgamesh, Iskandar, and Jeanne d'Arc.
1 - Kazikli Bey can summon stakes at any point within the space of his domain, even inside the enemy. The stakes are summoned with the concept of "having already pierced the target". So they are virtually impossible to avoid or defend against without an equally potent conceptual ability. 3 - With Legend Of Dracula activated he is nigh impossible to kill. He heals from even severe damage almost instantaneously, with only holy artifacts having any lasting effects. 4 - Legend of Dracula grants him all the powers attributed to vampires through the various myths, including shapeshifting, mental manipulation, becoming intangible, and so forth. 6 - He battles against six Servants simultaneously from both the Red and Black factions in Fate/apocrypha while using Legend Of Dracula, two of them being Achilles and Karna.
1 - Avalon is a conceptual weapon that embodies the utopia of the same name in Arthurian legends. Its power is stated to be beyond even True Magic. 3 - Avalon grants its user exceptional healing capabilities. It instantly repaired Kiritsugu's heart after it was demolished by a strike from Kirei in Fate/Zero and allowed Shiro to recover within seconds from having half of his entire abdomen cleaved away by Berserker's giant weapon in the Fate and Heaven's Feel routes of the visual novel. Avalon's true power is described as an absolute defense, a portable fortress that keeps out all impurities. It protects her from Ea in the Fate route of the visual novel. 5 - Altera uncharacteristically shows notable fear upon seeing Excalibur in Fate/Extella. Sephyr was initially defeated by a weapon that greatly resembled the holy sword and is connected to it in some way. 6 - She is usually viewed as one of the strongest Servants, sought after as the preferable Heroic Spirit to summon as Saber by numerous mages across several different Fate continuities. In the Unlimited Blade Works route of the visual novel Shiro is convinced that not even Hercules could defeat her after she forms a contract with Rin and regains more of her true ability. She is considered a Top Servant in Fate/Extella alongside Gilgamesh, Iskandar, and Jeanne d'Arc.
1 - God Hand operates on a conceptual level, granting him a stock of twelve lives. Upon death he will revive, and become immune to whatever just killed him. 3 - God Hand nullifies all attacks of any nature, including Noble Phantasms, that do not rank as "A" or higher on the parameter chart. It also acts as a type of adaptable armor that becomes increasingly more difficult to penetrate the longer it is exposed to certain powers or weapons. 4 - He doesn't necessarily possess much versatility himself as a Berserker. However it is essentially a required trait to have when battling him in order to deal with God Hand. 6 - He has some of the highest stat parameters of any Servant despite the Berserker class being considered to be the least compatible with his true capabilities. In Fate/stay Night Archer considered him superior in statistics to the other six Servants in the fifth Holy Grail War combined. Even Gilgamesh acknowledged that he may have had a chance at victory during their battle if he had abandoned Illya and fought with full force.
1 - Armor Of Fafnir nullifies any attack that does not register as "A" rank or higher on the parameter chart. 2 - His Balmung became powerful enough to compete with Karna's Brahmastra Kundala later in Fate/apocrypha. 3 - Armor Of Fafnir is difficult to penetrate not only due to its nullification abilities but because it weakens even "A" rank or higher attacks by an amount proportionate to having the lower ranks subtracted. He takes minor damage from Karna's strikes in Fate/apocrypha, which should have been fatal even to enduring Servants. Achilles is likewise unable to harm him without the use of a Noble Phantasm. 6 - He holds his own against Karna and Achilles at different points in Fate/apocrypha.
1 - The probability of Pashupata delivering instantaneous death gets higher in proportion to the target's level of divinity. 2 - Even while holding back his Agni Gandiva releases arrows akin to missiles. Pashupata also has an extremely wide area of effect, so much so that he has to actively restrain it when it's used in order to prevent unnecessary casualties. 3 - While not really a true defense his unusually high Luck stat makes it very difficult to get him in a disadvantageous situation since it alters odds in his favor to the point where he claims he rarely ever has to try during combat. 5 - In the American chapter of Fate/Grand Order he destroys 28 of Solomon's Demon Gods with Pashupata. 6 - He is the rival of Karna and comparable to him in most aspects.
2 - Excalibur Morgan has the same destructive power as its counterpart with the added bonus of being able to be used continually due to her connection to the Holy Grail. 3 - She has such an abundant flow of mana that it is always surrounding her figure and acts to increase her defensive capabilities significantly. 6 - In the Heaven's Feel route of the visual novel she easily overwhelms Hercules in battle and Medusa doubts she could last more than a couple of minutes against her in a fight.
1 - Arondight can be said to display conceptual effects in the way it alters probability in his favor during disadvantageous combat situations. 4 - Knight Of Honor grants him the ability to transform any object he grabs ahold of into a Noble Phantasm under his control. It even works on those of other Servants. 6 - He is said to be the most skilled of the Round Table Knights, on par with Artoria. In the Camelot chapter of Fate/Grand Order the protagonist group believes he is the only one capable of defeating Gawain while Numeral Of The Saint is in effect.
2 - Excalibur Galantine draws power from the miniature star inside its hilt and can scorch an area stretching 13 kilometers in all directions. 3 - His Numeral Of The Saint ability triples all of his parameters while the Sun shines on him, making him extremely difficult to deal with even for relatively powerful Servants. In Fate/Extra Hakuno's Servant is unable to even harm him under those conditions. In the Camelot chapter of Fate/Grand Order the Protagonist's group of six Servants, fearing they would not be able to defeat him, concluded that only Lancelot's Arondight would be capable of doing any real damage. 6 - Even Lancelot faced difficulty against him when Numeral Of The Saint was active, opting to battle him at nighttime instead.
1 - His incarnation as SHIKI Tohno gives him the ability to utilize powers of the Mystic Eyes Of Death Perception to sever lines connected to the conceptual aspects of things. 3 - He has attained a type of immortality in that the contents of his soul will reincarnate when returned to Akasha after his death. 4 - He has acquired knowledge of various types of magecraft over the course of his many reincarnations, including spells from the Age Of Gods, and possesses a Reality Marble. 5 - At his strongest he defeated Altrouge Brunestud.
1 - Lair Of The Beast King is a Reality Marble that acts as his physical body and allows him to merge his existence with that of other beings. His form is a type of perpetual chaos that can no longer be thought of as a single entity. 2 - Although not a representation of his own destructive power his Soil Of Genesis technique, which utilizes 500 of the beasts from his 'chaos' to restrain a target, is said to require the strength to break a continent in order to escape from and that not even Arcueid in her restricted form was capable of doing so. 3 - Any of the 666 beasts that make up his 'chaos' can reform instantly when slain so long as the Reality Marble itself exists, making him close to impossible to truly kill. 4 - His 'chaos' contains all sorts of different familiars including Phantasmal Beasts. He can release these beasts from his body as individual entities or alter his figure in countless ways to adapt their characteristics. 6 - He nearly succeeds in killing a weakened Arcueid in the Tsukihime visual novel.
1 - La Pucelle erases threats to humanity from existence at the cost of her own life. 3 - Her "EX" rank in Magic Resistance makes her utterly immune to magecraft of any kind regardless of the spell's potency. Luminosite Eternelle is capable of defending against Noble Phantasms of the "Anti-Army" classification and protects her, along with others, from Spartacus' Crying Warmonger in Fate/apocrypha. 6 - She is considered a Top Servant in Fate/Extella alongside Gilgamesh and Iskandar.
2 - Ionian Hetairoi is classified as an "Anti-Army" Noble Phantasm and traps its targets inside a Reality Marble where the hundreds of thousands of soldiers he commanded in life temporarily materialize as individual Servants. 6 - He is considered a Top Servant alongside Gilgamesh and Jeanne d'Arc in Fate/Extella, and also manages to battle on equal terms with Altera in one route once he becomes accustomed to his Moon Cell vessel.
1 - Pelt Of The Divine Beast nullifies the effects and damage taken from weapons that have man-made origins by way of rejecting humanity itself. 4 - King's Order allows him to use items related to the Twelve Labors he accomplished in life such as the Goddess Of War or even summoning the Cerberus from the Underworld. 6 - He not only attacks Gilgamesh outright but attempts to provoke him into drawing Ea, claiming it is the only weapon inside the Gate Of Babylon that could close the gap in their abilities.
3 - He has the ability to morph into a dragon, a Phantasmal species immune to magecraft and extremely difficult to kill even with the use of powerful Noble Phantasms. He can absorb the light from holy weapons such as Excalibur and Excalibur Galantine, rendering them highly ineffective against him. 6 - In the recounted events of the battle in Garden Of Avalon he both eliminated a battalion of knights from Camelot and incapacitated Gawain in a single strike.
1 - He is one of only two Servants thus far to possess the Independent Manifestation skill, allowing him to project his influence across space-time. 3 - His Noble Phantasm Garden Of Avalon applies the effects of the unreachable utopia to allies granting an exceptional healing factor that can oppose Tiamat’s Chaos Tide. Due to being eternally imprisoned inside Avalon it is stated that there is no possible future in which his death occurs. 4 - His Clairvoyance allows him to see current events as if looking at the entire world and all its happenings from a bird’s eye viewpoint. It also qualifies him as a candidate for the Grand Caster vessel. 6 - He is regarded as one of the most powerful Mages of all time, both in history and myth.
1 - The version of Gae Bolg that he possesses in this form not only interferes with causality and hinders regeneration with its curse but also applies the concept of death over a large area when thrown. 3 - He already has a high Endurance stat at B+ as well as A-ranked Battle Continuation. Rune magecraft also grants him a powerful healing factor. Curruid Coinchenn raises his Endurance to EX rank, making him nigh indestructible to conventional attacks. So he’s a true tank. 4 - For offense Gae Bolg is nearly impossible to avoid under most circumstances and can instantly inflict death to a large number of targets at a single time. For defense Protection From Arrows renders him immune to projectiles so long as they aren’t explosive and Battle Continuation combined with healing magecraft makes him very difficult to bring down. Curruid Coinchenn works well for both approaches since it pushes his Strength and Endurance parameters quite literally off the charts. Frenzy Of Spirits is a form of mental interference that lowers an enemy’s Strength and Agility. To top it all off he’s also one of the most talented fighters in mythology. So there aren’t many opponents he isn’t going to have an advantage against. 6 - He’s easily the biggest threat in the American chapter of Fate/Grand Order, even with the likes of Arjuna on the same team. He’s responsible for killing both Nero (Bride) and Karna. He also battles and defeats both Rama and Scathach (individually).
1 - Her Noble Phantasm, called Purgatory Blade, is capable of erasing the very concept of things from existence. 3 - Her skill Furthest Earth is the ability to leap through dimensions with a step, enabling instantaneous movement through any space. 5 - She is a Guardian of the Counter Force, the non-corporeal agent responsible for protecting The World from potential threats like Sephyr and Beasts Of Calamity.
2 - When released at full power the energy yield from Crying Warmonger is likened to an earthquake that can wipe entire cities off the map and causes extensive damage to the surroundings for many kilometers. 3 - He has EX-ranked Endurance, making him very difficult not only to knock down but to keep down as well. The skill Honor Of The Battered heals any injuries he receives and Crying Warmonger converts the physical damage into magical energy to make him stronger. Combine all of this with his Unyielding Will skill that blocks out mental interference and he becomes the very definition of a Berserker. He survives some of the most brutal damage of any Servant to date, being impaled all over from Vlad’s stakes, losing his leg to Astolfo’s Trap Of Argalia, blown to pieces by Atalante’s Phoebus Catastrophe, and literally bisected vertically by Mordred. 6 - He proves extremely difficult for Jeanne to handle in combat during Fate/apocrypha. Once Crying Warmonger reaches a certain level even the compulsory power of Command Seals are useless against him.
2 - Balmung is even more powerful when he utilizes Siegfried’s form, able to compete with Karna’s Brahmastra Kundala. 3 - Armor Of Fafnir is in effect when he transforms into Siegfried. 4 - He gains access to Siegfried’s Noble Phantasms when he is possessed by the Heroic Spirit and also has Frankenstein’s Galvanism skill that greatly increases his already potent mana reserves to the point where he can challenge Servants even Siegfried himself had difficulty facing off against. 6 - He battles a serious Karna in Fate/apocrypha and is able to hold his own, even forcing him to resort to Vasavi Shakti at one point.
This tier is comprised of average to above average Servants, Dead Apostle Ancestors, and other characters that are not necessarily the pinnacle of their groups in every aspect but are nonetheless serious threats in most situations.
Reasons Codes 1 - The character has weapons or abilities that operate on a conceptual level, but may or may not have a multipurpose use. 2 - The character possesses destructive capacities capable of damaging areas around the size of cities. 3 - The character has impressive defenses that are difficult to overcome or a reliable means of countering attacks with little effort 4 - The character possesses a versatile skill set that allows them to compensate for other areas in which they may lack 5 - The character is considered a notable threat to one in the A Tier or above, or capable of challenging one with at least some chance at victory. 6 - The character is stated/implied to be comparable to another in this tier.
1 - Unlimited Blade Works is a Reality Marble that allows him to make use of an infinite number of all the weapons he has ever laid eyes on, including most Noble Phantasms. 2 - Broken Phantasms such as Caladbolg II have a sizable blast radius. In the Fate/Extra universe he is capable of projecting a version of Excalibur, whose light has been shown to eclipse cities. 4 - He can analyze the composition of any weapon just by seeing it once and from then on out can project them for his own use. 5 - He possesses an excellent counter to Gilgamesh's Gate Of Babylon. 6 - He manages to hold his own against a serious Cu Chulainn in the Unlimited Blade Works route of the visual novel.
1 - Gae Bolg reverses cause and effect to make its result of piercing the heart an inevitability. 2 - Gae Bolg's thrown version is an "Anti-Army" variant that can affect a wide area. 3 - Protection From Arrows prevents him from being struck by projectiles so long as they are not explosive. Battle Continuation makes him difficult to finish off. 5 - In the Fate route of the visual novel he battles against Gilgamesh for several hours before finally being defeated. 6 - In the visual novel he battled the other six Servants of the fifth Holy Grail War at different points in order to gauge their strength.
1 - Aestus Domus Aurea is like a Reality Marble. Within it all her parameters are boosted and an enemy's defenses are negated. 4 - Imperial Privilege allows her to use a variety of different Personal Skills she wouldn't otherwise have including Divinity. In Fate/Extella she possesses a Regalia that allows her to access mana from the Moon Cell Core to boost her parameters considerably. 5 - She battles and defeats Gawain in the final round of the Moon Cell’s Holy Grail War. In Fate/Extra CCC she wins a somewhat handicapped match against Karna. In Fate/Extella she is able to hold her own against Altera for a brief period. 6 - In Fate/Extra CCC she fights against alternate versions of Emiya and Tamamo. In Fate/Extella she competes with Tamamo on several occasions.
1 - Eightfold Blessing Of Amaterasu allows for magecraft to be used without expending any mana on her behalf by reducing the cost of spells to zero for a brief period of time. 4 - In Fate/Extella she possesses a Regalia that allows her to access mana from the Moon Cell Core to boost her parameters considerably. 5 - She is the avatar of Amaterasu. With each tail she gains she becomes significantly more powerful due to being closer to her godly heritage. By the time she has three tails she’s on par with, possibly even beyond, Top Servants. 6 - In Fate/Extra CCC she fights against alternate versions of Emiya and Nero. In Fate/Extella she competes with Nero on several occasions.
1 - Rule Breaker nullifies any and all magecraft it comes into contact with, even being capable of severing the contract between a Master and Servant. 3 - Despite being a Caster she has displayed some surprisingly enduring feats. She survived a direct hit from Emiya’s Caladbolg II in the Unlimited Blade Works route and also managed to stay alive after being bombarded by a massive barrage of weapons fired from Gilgamesh’s Gate Of Babylon in the Fate route. 4 - She has quite an extensive magecraft arsenal. She can fire dozens to hundreds of powerful beams of energy at enemies, freeze the space around a target, teleport herself or others, create illusions, use telepathic attacks, create barriers and Bounded Fields, summon familiars, enhance the parameters of others, and more. 6 - She battles Emiya in the Unlimited Blade Works route of Fate/stay night and does fairly well against him despite his Magic Resistance skill.
1 - Breaker Gorgon seals the target’s mind in a dreamlike state while simultaneously negating any abilities they may have. Her Mystic Eyes Of Petrification will turn a target to stone merely by looking at them. Only those with extremely high mana reserves can escape such a fate, and even then their movements are greatly hindered. 2 - In Fate/Extella her Blood Fort Andromeda covers a portion of a city that resembles Fuyuki. 4 - Between her three Noble Phantasms, Mystic Eyes, Magic Resistance, and high stat parameters (with Sakura as her Master) she’s actually quite versatile. 5 - She battles against Saber Alter at the end of the Heaven’s Feel route of Fate/stay night and keeps her occupied for more than just a few minutes. 6 - In the Fate route of the visual novel she puts up a decent fight against Artoria while in a weakened state. In the Heaven’s Feel route she easily overwhelms Emiya with her Mystic Eyes, and would have killed both him and Rin if Sakura hadn’t collapsed.
1 - The Seventh Holy Scripture is a Conceptual Weapon that destroys the soul of the target when it strikes, preventing all manners of regeneration and even reincarnation. 3 - By virtue of being connected to Roa, and through a glitch of sorts in the World’s registry, Ciel is effectively immortal. She cannot die so long as Roa is alive. Any damage she sustains is undone by the World via reality warping. Even if every cell in her body is destroyed she would still be returned to normal seconds later as if the event that caused it never occurred at all. 4 - Due to being the previous host for Roa she inherited all the knowledge of magecraft he had obtained over his centuries of living. It’s said that she surpasses even top rated Mages in ability. She in also a trained Executioner of the Church and can make use of Holy artifacts such as the Black Keys. 6 - She is one of only a handful of humans in the extended universe capable of combating Servants in an actual fight.
1 - She is connected to the Holy Grail corrupted by Angra Mainyu, giving her a seemingly limitless supply of magical energy to draw upon. This means any Servant under contract with her also has access to the inexhaustible reserves. 2 - Releasing Angra Mainyu into the world by way of letting the Grail’s contents pour out would have caused a global catastrophe. In Fate/Zero a small glimpse of such an event destroyed a portion of Fuyuki City. The threat was severe enough that the Counter Force was set to activate had Shiro failed to stop her. 3 - She survives being impaled dozens of times and even bifurcated from the waist down by a storm of weapons from Gilgamesh’s Gate Of Babylon. 4 - Through use of the Holy Grail’s ability to draw in and store mana most magecraft is useless against her. The Shadow is a manifestation of both her desires and Angra Mainyu’s billions of curses. It devours mana and consumes souls. It can easily overwhelm and assimilate Servants. Physical attacks cannot harm it, nor can most Noble Phantasms. Shiro questions whether the concept of death even applies to it. She can also summon Shadow Giants, a type of familiar, that are essentially giant clumps of curses. They each have enough magical energy to rival the Noble Phantasms of Servants and there is no limit to how many she can create due to the Grail’s infinite mana reserves. 5 - The Shadow attacks and consumes Gilgamesh in the Heaven’s Feel route of Fate/stay night. It also corrupts both Hercules and Artoria, transforming them into Servants of Sakura. 6 - The Shadow attacks and consumes Cu Chulainn and Medea in the Heaven’s Feel route of Fate/stay night.
1 - The Trap Of Argalia carriers the concept of of ‘falling’. If it so much as touches an opponent it forces them to the ground. For Servants this translates into the dematerialization of their legs. 3 - The Hippogriff that he rides is capable of a type of dimensional shifting that can temporarily allow him to avoid virtually any attack, making him very difficult to strike down. 4 - His Noble Phantasms consist of one that negates magecraft of almost any level, one that allows him to shift outside of the dimension to avoid attacks, one that temporarily incapacitates with a touch, and one that can unleash a blast large enough to be considered of Anti-Army categorization. So he has most combat ranges covered.
2 - Phoebus Catastrophe unleashes a storm of explosive arrows from the sky that can completely engulf an entire battlefield. 5 - Her arrows, when charged, are capable of piercing extremely potent defenses like Siegfried’s Armor Of Fafnir, making them a real threat even for those more powerful than herself. Under the effects of Agrius Metamorphosis she mostly dominates Jeanne d’ Arc in close quarters and has her almost completely on the defensive.
2 - Blasted Tree is an Anti-Army Noble Phantasm that, when at full power, can wipe out an entire battlefield with a rain of highly concentrated lightning. 4 - Galvanism is an extremely useful kill that allows one to convert magical energy, as well as most other non-physical sources, into electricity that can be utilized for rejuvenation or even to mimic other skills such as Mana Burst.
6 - He is one of the few human characters stated to be capable of battling against average Servants with a reasonable chance at victory.
This tier is comprised of below average Servants that are not particularly the most formidable by comparison to their peers but are nonetheless superior to the majority of characters that are not Heroic Spirits.
Reason Codes 1 - The character has weapons or abilities that operate on a conceptual level. 2 - The character possesses destructive capacities capable of dismantling large structures or devastating small settlements. 3 - The character has a versatile skill set that allows them to battle against superior opponents to some degree. 4 - The character is a notable threat to one in the B Tier or above, even if they may not be capable of defeating them outright. 5 - The character is stated/implied to be comparable to another in the same tier.
1 - Tsubame Gaeshi creates a dimensional refraction phenomenon whereby its blade simultaneously exists in three separate locations. It’s effect is said to approach the realm of True Magic. 3 - Knowledge Of Respect And Harmony effectively makes his attack’s unreadable by an opponent no matter how many times they are witnessed. Eye Of The Mind (False) is a type of sixth sense to danger. Vitrification nullifies mental interference. 4 - He is able to battle Artoria and Emiya individually despite being outclassed in several key areas.
1 - Shiro can utilize the Reality Marble Unlimited Blade Works, a barren battlefield where an infinite array of swords comprised of every one he has every seen exists. 3 - Unlimited Blade Works is extremely versatile. He can also use Projection to copy weapons that the opponent possesses. 4 - Unlimited Blade Works is a natural counter to Gilgamesh’s Gate Of Babylon, ultimately allowing Shiro to fight against and defeat the overconfident king.
2 - He can Project Nine Lives as well as the physical strength of Hercules which is necessary in order to swing it. He also Projects a version of Excalibur that, while downgraded from the original, was enough to destroy the Holy Grail along with the remnants of Angra Mainyu. 3 - Through use of Emiya’s arm he can Project any weapon or Noble Phantasm stored within his version of Unlimited Blade Works. 4 - He is able to briefly battle against and moderately injure Saber Alter before being slain in one of the endings.
1 - The Black Keys can nullify a Vampire or Dead Apostle’s regenerative abilities. 3 - His Bajiquan martial arts are capable of dealing significant internal damage with even seemingly minor strikes, often incapacitating with a single blow. 5 - At his strongest he is stated to be capable of potentially defeating an Assassin or Caster class Servant under favorable circumstances. He later battles against True Assassin in the Heaven’s Feel Route of the visual novel after he is out of his prime and is still able to briefly hold his own.
2 - She is in possession of Rhongomyniad, King Arthur’s sacred lance that serves as the anchor to The World. Even a fraction of its power is comparable to Anti-Army Noble Phantasms. 3 - Her Mystic Code Add can essentially transform into virtually any type of weapon. 5 - She is able to battle against Faker in a somewhat serious encounter.
1 - The Jewel Sword Of Zelretch can draw mana from parallel universes, giving her a truly limitless supply to utilize during combat. 2 - Her most powerful gems contain enough mana to obliterate large houses. 4 - She battled Dark Sakura to a standstill in the Heaven’s Feel Route.
5 - Through use of Medea’s magecraft enhancing his physical abilities and the unpredictability of his Snake style martial arts he is capable of dealing significant damage to even Servants like Artoria that surpass him in overall parameters.
This tier is comprised of certain Humans, Dead Apostles, Vampires, Mages, Mixed-Bloods, and Church officials that possess exceptional abilities or are otherwise supernatural in their existence.
Reason Codes 1 - The character has access to powerful magecraft, weapons, or abilities that are unique only to a select few or potentially them alone. 2 - The character possesses some form of physical attribute such as abnormal strength, endurance, or speed that is not found within normal Humans. 3 - The character is a notable threat to one in the C Tier or above, even if they may not be capable of defeating them outright. 4 - The character is stated/implied to be comparable to another in the same tier.
1 - The Mystic Eyes Of Death Perception can actualize the “end” of an object’s existence by tracing the lines she sees on them, resulting in it never being able to return to its former state. This even applies to abstract entities and concepts in her case. 2 - She has a prosthetic arm crafted through magecraft that can grasp distant targets and interact with the otherwise intangible. 3 - She is technically a potential threat to the vast majority of the entire Tier list due to her Mystic Eyes even though she wouldn’t be capable of actually combating many of them directly.
1 - The Mystic Eyes Of Death Perception can actualize the “end” of an object’s existence by tracing the lines he sees on them, resulting in it never being able to return to its former state. In his case he can also strike a target’s “point of death” which will erase the entire concept of it altogether along with any phenomenon that resulted from it such as momentum or curses. 2 - Although it is usually instinctual he possesses impressive reflexes for a Human, able to avoid projectiles flying at supersonic speeds and blows from beings much faster than himself like Dead Apostles Ancestors and Executioners. 3 - He is technically a potential threat to many characters throughout the Tier list due to his Mystic Eyes, even though he wouldn’t be capable of actually combating most of them directly.
1 - Her Origami can plunder the heat from anything within her field of vision. In addition the red hairs that do so are not perceivable without some form of extrasensory means. 3 - She is capable of holding her own against Ciel for a brief period. 4 - She absolutely decimates SHIKI during their encounter in a couple of the Routes of the visual novel.
1 - The Mystic Eyes Of Distortion twist the space that her vision focuses on. 4 - She gives Shiki Ryougi quite the difficult fight and even causes her to lose an arm before it’s over.
This tier is comprised of characters that are marginally beyond the ordinary but are not necessarily remarkable enough to garner much attention while amongst those in other tiers, or ones that simply do not fall into any of the other categories.
Reason Codes 1 - The character possesses some manner of Magecraft, power, or lineage that sets them apart from standard Humans but does not have the means of effectively combating characters in higher tiers. 2 - The character is a typical Human.
Suppose if you're going with a tier system, suggestions for other tiers:
E- Normal humans or weak magi (street-level threat at best) D- Average magi and weak Servants. (wall to building level) C- Above average magi, average Servant, and Dead Apostles. (city block to town level, have some level of hax) B- High-tier Servants, wielders of True Magic, and lower rungs of the Dead Apostle Ancestors. (city to country level, more potent hax than C-rank tier) A- Top-tier Servants, True Ancestors, Divine Spirits, higher rung Dead Apostle Ancestors. (country-level to life-wiper, hax with potential to greatly alter certain existential properties)
For EX tier, I'd also add on Ado Edem considering Slash Emperor's potency to one-shot Ultimate Ones.
Post by CosmicNoirTear on Aug 9, 2017 23:43:01 GMT
hizashi Shiki Ryougi as the void should be the be-all end-all right? I mean Akasha is literally the entirely of the Nasuverse. After her, B.B. with the Moon Cell has feats far above everyone else on the list. She covers the Moon Cell's weakness that for all it's power, it only observes and is quite easily hackable on its own, hence the entire purpose of its own Holy Grail War and the victor being given a Regalia that allows them to give the Moon Cell's defenses a direction.
Also his Tiamat really that strong? From what I know, Goetia and Kiara were even worse Beast threats.
Both Velbur and Sephyr are way too low given the outright states power of the former and the potential of the latter. Amaterasu was one of the few candidates that can challenge, not guaranteed to beat, the Umbral Star itself and Sephyr whose just an aspect of it, at her maximum potential has a power level that approaches way too close to Amaterasu to be that far from her on the list.
List should also include Ado Edem since he one-shotted the Ultimate Ones, Fate/Extra CCC Gilgamesh, and not too sure, but how about Saber Venus? You have the Olympians pretty high up there and Saber Venus draws upon all the power of the Roman equivalent of the Olympian Athena as shown by her namesake.
I see one thing I didn't specify and it may have caused some confusion. There isn't any ranking system within each tier category itself, only the overall tier list as a whole which isn't completed since ranks A through E aren't even there yet. So Amaterasu being at the top of the EX list doesn't mean anything at all. The tier itself isn't in any particular order. I was more so doing the list to separate general power scales and traits. The order you see is literally just the order in which I thought of the characters.
It's pretty impossible to make a straightforward "tier list" for the high ends because you have a whole bunch of people who're really powerful but only in specific places or circumstances.
Yeah. That's why I was going to try more so for a list that separates groups of characters based on some key features or characteristics of their power rather than going for a "strongest, second strongest, third strongest" and so on kind of thing. The only kind of power distinction will mostly be between the tier ranks themselves, not between characters within the same tier.
Gilgamesh (Stay Night and Extra/CCC) -Stay Night incarnation has weapons stored in Gate of Babylon that would be a threat to divine beings and Ea is a potential life-wiper at full power via destroying Earth's Reality Marble. -Extra/CCC incarnation is considerably more powerful with greater resistance to various haxes and had defeated Kiara, Extra/CCC's incarnation of Angra Mainyu.
Night of Wallachia -TATARI essentially turns him into a conceptual entity that can't easily be killed for as long as the Reality Marble draws upon rumors and fears, and the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception are incapable of permanently killing him off.
Dust of Osiris -Possesses TATARI's abilities, making her extremely difficult to kill off.
Kischur Zelretch Schweinorg -In his physical prime, he defeated Type Moon in combat and was able to successfully stop Type Moon's attempted moon drop onto the Earth.
Lancer of Red (Karna) -Vasavi Shakti gives him the capability to destroy divine beings, albeit at the cost of sacrificing his sun armor and leaving him heavily weakened.
Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for
I'm going to try to keep the EX Tier exclusive to characters that are outrageously difficult to deal with due to certain factors like immortality and such. So while the likes of Gilgamesh and Karna may be a threat to some in the EX Tier to an extent because of specific Noble Phantasms they're not necessarily on the same level in terms of the type of existence they are. At the end of the day Gilgamesh and Karna are still just Servants, albeit very powerful ones. I'd like to keep the EX Tier limited to Grand Servants in that regard since they have been shown and hyped to be significantly more powerful than even some of the strongest regular Servants and are meant to challenge Beasts. Solomon's Grand Caster vessel easily qualifies as the most powerful Servant ever shown and Goetia was nigh invincible when using it. King Hassan didn't do much when he appeared as Grand Assassin other than toy with Gawain. But it's said he could defeat the Lion King (implied he could do it without much effort) and even as a regular Assassin he held his own in the fight against Tiamat and is arguably the key factor in her defeat. The day Gilgamesh gets summoned as Grand Archer though....
I'll probably add a Reason Code in the A Tier for characters who are a threat to someone in the EX Tier for one reason or another.
I added Night Of Wallachia and Dust Of Osiris to the EX Tier. I also added the first bits of the A Tier, though there are still quite a lot of characters to put in that one. I chose to put Zelretch in the A Tier as opposed to the EX Tier for a couple of reasons. While he is the user of the Second Magic the depths of that power aren't really explored much. So we don't know how far he could take his space-time manipulation. Most of the time he uses it for traveling between parallel realities, which alone isn't necessarily something I believe should have him in the EX Tier since Servants like Musashi and Merlin can achieve similar feats. He did defeat Type Moon, however his existence isn't on the same level. He was technically human prior to the battle and became a Dead Apostle during it, whereas Type Moon is an Ultimate One. Also, defeating an Ultimate One in and of itself isn't something that would be entirely impossible for others currently in the A Tier. It would simply be unlikely given the extreme difficulty of the task. Truth be told Zelretch may belong in a tier between EX and A, but I didn't want to make an separate one just for that.
I created a Reason Code for some of those in the A Tier that are threats to those in the higher one.
Vlad III (Lancer) -Legend of Dracula amps up Vlad's stats as such where he could single-handedly hold his ground against six Servants at once. Outside of Legend of Dracula, he was strong enough to be a fair challenge for Karna.
Siegfried (Saber) -Was able to hold his ground fighting against Karna, whose casual attacks would be fatal for most Servants to be capable of enduring.
Achilles -Has ridiculously powerful defenses between Akhilleus Kosmos and Andreias Amarantos, even against divine weapons. Capable of fighting against Siegfried and Legend of Dracula-possessed Vlad III.
Heracles (Berserker) -Has the raw strength to casually slay Servants of average stats. Could deflect volleys of weapons coming from Gate of Babylon. -God Hand grants him immunity to damage from low-ranking attacks and in the event he is slain, he can resurrect up to 12 times and becomes immune to damage from whatever methods killed him previously.
Arturia Penndragon (Saber Alter) -Capable of overwhelming Heracles in combat.
Arturia Penndragon (Saber) -Avalon makes her nearly invulnerable from all attack due to the sheath temporarily placing her in an isolated dimension. -Capable of trading blows with Heracles.
Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for
Vortigern (Garden of Avalon) -Was capable of absorbing the power of holy swords like Excalibur and giving the Knights of the Round Table trouble as such where Arturia had to use Rhongomyniad to slay him.
Mordred (Saber) -Capable of fighting on equal footing with Arturia.
Lancelot of the Lake -Has stats on par with Arturia and capable of fighting her near-equally. -Agile enough as a Berserker to use and counteract fired volleys of weapons from Gilgamesh's Gate of Babylon with Knight of Owner.
Michael Roa Valdamjong -As a Dead Apostle Ancestor, he possesses the attributes to fight on par with high-tier Servants like those of the Saber-class and defeated high-ranking Dead Apostle Ancestor, Altrouge Brunestud.
Nrvnqsr Chaos -A Dead Apostle Ancestor that is a living personification of chaos with 666 beasts fused to his body as a living collective host via his Reality Marble, Lair of the Beast King. The creatures contained within Nrvnqsr vary from simple beasts like tigers and crows to supernatural creatures like dragons and Phantasmal Beasts. As a collective, Chaos can't be truly destroyed unless all 666 of the beasts within himself are destroyed all at once as they are otherwise restored from within his body. -Possesses a spell called Soil of Genesis where 500 of the beasts within Nrvnqsr form an imprisoning mass potent enough to entrap a weakened Arcueid. According to Nrvnqsr, power the equivalent of destroying a continent would be needed to destroy it.
Primate Murder -A Beast of Calamity with higher speed and proficiency at killing primates than Angra Mainyu. Considered powerful enough as such among the Dead Apostle Ancestors that only Altrouge Brunestud can control it.
Aoko Aozaki -A Magician that possesses the True Magic known as Magic Blue, granting her the power to control time. -One of the strongest human magic users on record as such where she is one of the few humans capable of battling directly against Servants.
Arcueid Brunestud -In spite of her heavily weakened state, Arcueid is still formidable enough with her abilities as a True Ancestor to slay most Dead Apostles with ease and even give a reincarnated Roa difficulty battling him.
Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for
I finally added the B Tier category with a few Servants to start off with (Emiya, Cu Chulainn, and Nero). I also added Primate Murder to the EX Tier and Merlin and Aoko to the A Tier. Like with Zelretch it’s pretty difficult to actually gauge which Tier Aoko belongs in. Some of the feats she’s accomplished with the Fifth Magic would say she should be in the EX Tier. However the true extent of her power hasn’t been explored enough to judge for sure, even if it has been given more depth than the Second Magic. So for now she’ll remain in the A Tier since despite her control of the Fifth Magic she is still human at the end of the day and not an existence like those in the EX Tier.
hizashi : Been a while since this baby was on. Let's see what I can contribute:
Dark Sakura - B-Rank -Becoming a host for Angra Mainyu, Sakura gains an unlimited supply of mana and gains a form of Heaven's Feel that allows her to absorb souls as a sort of perpetual engine to create mana. Her abilities as the Black Shadow allow her to corrupt Servants and she can form Shadow Giants that have power strong enough as such to be a match for Servants.
Medea (Caster) - B-Rank As a magic user from the Age of Gods, her proficiency with magic is extraordinary as such where she can overwhelm magi of the modern era with her magical attacks and could be a threat to Aoko Aozaki with her magical capabilities.
Medusa (Rider) - B-Rank This is when Medusa has Sakura Matou as her Master. Among one of the fastest Servants in the Fifth Holy Grail War, her Cybele allow her to petrify or weaken enemy threats depending on their magical proficiency and she has a high Riding skill allowing her to control strong Phantasmal Beasts like a pegasus that can rival dragons in strength.
Ciel - B-Rank Has magical potential that is higher than average for a human magi as such where she is capable of fighting battles against Dead Apostles and Servants. Due to being a past incarnation of Roa, she gained a form of immortality that allows her to automatically revive to top condition if killed and if she wants to, has access to the Dead Apostle's knowledge and abilities with using magic.
Spartacus (Berserker of Red) - A-Rank Crying Warmonger gives him the ability to become increasingly stronger the more damage he takes. He becomes powerful enough as such where he poses a threat to Mordred and Jeanne D'Arc.
Soichiro Kuzuki - B-Rank This is while he's under the effects of Medea's enhancement magic. The enhancement magic makes him powerful enough as such where he can pose a threat to Servants and could potentially kill them with his Snake style so long as they don't know of the martial art's mechanics.
Sieg - A-Rank Via gaining the abilities of Frankenstein's Monster and Siegfried, Sieg gains the ability to temporarily take on the latter's form and eventually surpassing him in power as a Servant. He also becomes capable of using a weaker version of Frankenstein's Blasted Tree. By the end of Apocrypha, gaining Siegfried's heart makes Sieg turn into the dragon Fafnir.
Kouma Kishima - B-Rank As a half-demon, Kouma has superhuman attributes potent as such where he is capable of fighting against Servants.
Atalanta (Archer of Red) - A-Rank Phoebus Catastrophe gives her power destructive enough to incapacitate Spartacus and when charged sufficiently enough, could harm higher-tier Servants like Karna and Siegfried. Phoebus Catastrophe gives her a large enough stat amp to overwhelm Ruler in battle at the cost of her sanity.
Frankenstein's Monster (Berserker of Black) - B-Rank Capable of holding her ground against higher-tier Servants like Achilles and Mordred, and a fully-charged Blasted Tree allows her to have destructive power to kill them at the cost of her own life.
Astolfo (Rider of Black) - B-Rank Capable of holding his ground against higher-tier Servants like Mordred, yet is considered a mid-tier Servant at best being comparable to Frankenstein. Using Hippogriff, the mount is capable of charges on par with an A-Rank attack and is capable of quickly phasing between reality and the Reverse Side of the World in bursts.
