eeh? does her mystic eyes still work even when she's killed? Yes. In fact, almost all of Perseus' accomplishments afterwards owe a lot to Medusa's head and her eyes' ability to turn the object into stone. For Perseus, Medusa's head was more than just a trophy. It had been a very effective weapon fo...

oh, while we're at it, anyone care to think of his alignment? I'm thinkin' chaotic, 'cause of the whole turning-all-those-people-into-stone-with-Medusa's-head thing. (That's going by the original mythology, though, and not Nasu's version.) Actually Rider did say that she wasn't that much fond of hi...

Well, if she really could, it would definitely be famous for it, chasmirror. Besides, Servents are not exactly the same as original (even though saber isn't really a servent, but still), and Kojirou didn't even exist. Probably, Arthuria didn't even have mana then, let alone running mach 2-3. Myths ...

hmm, I wonder if gods ( yeah, gods ) like hades and angra mainyu who fell under the category of evil aligned gods are still classified as deity / seirei / divine spirits... I'd guess so, but more importantly, if just the legends could totally change the truth, Avenger would have been more powerful ...

correct me if I'm wrong, but had Saber been shown to be able to beamspam back when she was alive, or was it something she gained by Excalibur becoming a Noble Phantasm? It is not clear. First of all, the Fate SN is not exactly the world we know. Many legends and myths tell us some about Saber's pas...

if that's the case, why didn't they just wipe out the non-magic users centuries ago before modern warfare could make that difficult? If only magi were left, they wouldn't have to worry about how openly they used and studied magic. It doesn't seem too unreasonable when you think about it. Faustus so...

and if you say that legends are the determinant factor in shaping a heroic spirit's alignment, or rather "it's a given role or consequences of his/her deeds", look at medusa. her "role". isn't that clear enough that the role given to her is pretty much the same as avenger's, given that people portr...

er, yeah. that's exactly why I think his evil is mostly based on his hatred towards humanity (he consciously built his own alignment) rather than legends that shaped it. hence why I said he was no different than other heroic spirits in terms of alignment? Not quite. In case of Avenger, he is not re...

This is not D&D. With Nasu, such things are not objective, but subjective. In the Nasuverse, belief is oftentimes stronger than fact. And if someone believes they are good, then that is their alignment. The problem with that statement is the fact that the status screen is created subconsciously by ...

In other words, it wouldn't be so simple to just restrain her, much less control her, without wreaking a havoc of un-precedented scale. Considering that it still might not be enough to catch her after all the trouble, any attempt to get ahold of her would be futile, if not pointless. but it goes ag...

One thing I don't get... If Aoko possesses True Magic, why isn't the Magus Association watching over her like a hawk, or tried to manipulate and control her? I would think that a user of True Magic, especially considering the level of destruction Aoko is capable of, would be seen as a greater poten...

Like every other women, Miyako is in love with Shiki, but Shiki is completely oblivious to it. Must be the power his magical pheromones that attract the weirdest of girls around him... I don't think they have any special powers. They go out of their way to stress that the Arimas have the lowest dem...

Re: Questions about UBW (the RM) and alignments [pos. spoile

There really isn't any clear explanation about this. Only two Reality Marbles are recorded to have been observed from outside: one was "the Soil of Genesis" by Nrvnqsr Chaos(Nero) in Tsukihime, and the other was "the Army of the King" by Rider in Fate/Zero. "The Soil of Genesis" was the Reality Mar...

Re: Questions about UBW (the RM) and alignments [pos. spoile

1. Is Unlimited Blade Works (the Reality Marble) ever described as viewed from the outside? I don't remember it ever being described from an outsider's viewpoint in Fate or UBW, but if it is mentioned somewhere, what does it look like? If not, what do you guys think it looks like? (I, personally, t...

You know what, some of your points completely ignores mine, and I've been repeating my points and quote over and over. I'm tired of this. Why is the sword guiding Shirou ?

First of all, Shiro's copies are exactly like the originals on which they are based. It only loses a rank in mythicism, but retains all the power and abilities of the original. So technically Shiro can face any enemy with the same weapon as his or hers. So his defeat by the Heroic Spirits with the o...

To use a weapon at max potential means something like Saber being a king, not something like "look I'm so pro with this look at my l33t skillz". Sorry, but I don't quite understand this part. A king? Why would one have to be a king to use a weapon at max potential? Perhaps you are referring to Cali...
