Just because Hercules CAN be summoned as servants of different classes, it does not mean the same legendary hero can be summoned multiple times into a war. There is just no concrete evidence of it, anything stated is just speculation. However, there is one instance of one hero being summoned twice i...

Rank and Power (*warning* spoiler galore)

Through some digging around and reading Fate, it is apparent that rank (or mystery) and power do not correlate. Fuyuki wiki stated that as an object or living organism accumulate age and fame, it gains degree of mystery. I interpret this as the rank of a noble phantasm or a phantasmal beast. Power i...

The name of a weapon is merely for aesthetic purposes, to gauge the power of a weapon, read its rank (E~EX or whatever) and also the status of the user. Excalibur is a lower rank weapon than Ea, and Gil's status is not that much different from Sabre under Shirou, so Excali-blast loses to Enuma Elish.

Also, Shirou's ungodly damage resistance has something to do with his reality marble. Remember when Rider tried to stab him in the neck with the nail, it chipped and broke. Apparently Shirou's UBW can make a "sword armor" in his body.

Thanks for posting the topic, I thought about it for a long while. I think the title alludes to the fact that most battles in the Grail Wars occur at night (like Rin described, to stay out of the sight of common folks), so night time is the time when Masters and Servants fight side-by-side as a team...

Two hypotheses for "nothing happened to Shirou":
1. Avalon offers protection from all magic, even the five great sorcery (partially effective? As the wound healing ability manifests, but not the "moving fortress" main effect).
2. "My body is made of swords."

Do not be unsatisfied with Archer. Archer is a nobody, and such a "nobody" servant defeated a demigod not only once, but six times. His status was no match for Berserker, his master was not present (while berserker's master is a homunculus tailored to be a master), and he had to discover and gauge h...

Ya, the fact that he used a sword during his life time would qualify him as a Sabre, and I bet Iskander's stats will exceed the class requirement too. However, you gotta keep in mind that Noble Phantasms are gauged by the degree of their mystery. Raitei mentioned the sword lacks special qualities, s...

@Raitei, Another possible class for Iskander will be Lancer. I know this sounds rather absurd, but I will provide the reasoning. The army of Iskander is known for its phalanx formation, which I bet you all know consists of soldiers holding long lances advancing in synchrony. Iskander already has Aio...

In order to be a Berserker, the said hero must have lost sanity at least once in his/her life time. Hercules had gone berserk (mad) and slain his whole family, thus he is qualified as a berserker. In fact, this one sin was the trigger of his twelve labours. The hero does not have to be insane during...

Edit: Vader (Anakin) can be berserker too, he did wipe out a village to avenge his mother...if that count as "losing sanity".

Monohoshi Zao is pretty terrible as a sword, since Sabre bent it with raw strength. Consequently I doubt Tsubame Gaeshi even at its finest can dent God Hand. I agree with Raitei, the situation was probably a weird stalemate, and Ilya got bored. I hazard a guess that, Berzerker couldn't really hit Ko...

Kojiro was summoned before Sabre, as Sabre was the last servant to be summoned, I remember Rin stated this several times. As GreenSamurai said, Kojiro is a really really unusual case. He is pretty much a Sabre, but he is summoned as an "assassin". This is explained by two factors. First of all, Koji...

My bad, but the idea I tried to clear up is, just because it is "sword of assured victory", does not guarantee you a victory. Lol, "assured victory" is not part of the effect of the sword, unlike Gae Bolg, which assures heart-piercing (unless you got ungodly luck).

Rule Breaker is supposed to cancel magical effects, but as I understand it, it does not break noble phantasms, because they are "real" (as in not the product of magic). Say Sabre's Excalibur got stabbed, the barrier of the wind king will be dispelled, but she can still hit Caster with an Excalibur ...

@gexer64, I think you got the right idea, but God Hand works by "rank". Lets assume this magical nuclear missile we have (magical because normal nuclear weapon does nothing to servants) is rank E, which means it is exceptional and above average, it hits God Hand, since E<B, Berserker shrugs it off a...

Mmmm, touche, it sounded a lot more logical when it was in my head, but when it reached paper, the idea seemed to have dissolved. Well, I guess what I am trying to say is, maybe the Hassans were real, but the Hassans as heroic spirits are a combination of real historical figures PLUS the imagination...

Well if you think about it logically, Assassins can only be the Hassans... If you are an assassin, and you have done your job right, no one should know it was you who slain the target. So it is kind of a paradox... if you are a "famous assasin" and become recognizable, then you certainly failed as a...

That is for an exceptional magus like Rin only. Rin's "obey me" command has a somewhat effective result because she is a quite powerful magus, a run-of-the-mill magus giving the same command will have close to no binding effect. I am pretty much paraphrasing Archer here, so source cited.
