Naota wrote:Noble Phantasm - A term exclusive to Servants summoned for the Holy Grail War in Fate/Stay Night. Their Noble Phantasm is an object (usually one, but it could be more like a pair of boots, etc.) that defines their historical/mythical identity. The same amount of secrecy is kept about a Noble Phantasm than there is with a Servant, as it more or less gives away their identity the instant it's used. As well as sometimes serving as physical weapons, they act as a kind of trump card, or special ability that's never used lightly. For example, Shiki's "Nanatsu-Yoru" knife would probably be his Noble Phantasm, assuming he was a Servant.
Ryomasa wrote:A NOBLE PHANTASM is the crystallization of the historical facts and anecdotes that made an Epic Spirit famous. In other words, a NOBLE PHANTASM are the physical forms of the symbols of an Epic Spirit's life. These don't necessarily need to be weapons, they can be objects or abilities. For example, King Arthur has ALWAYS carried Excalibur, and it symbolizes his existence. Hercules is known for his twelve trials, the NOBLE PHANTASM of this legend grants him an extra twelve lives. Sasaki Kojirou is known, historically, for the Tsubame Gaeshi, and the NOBLE PHANTASM of this legend allows him to execute three strikes simultaneously. If I was to summon, say Kurosaki Ichigo from Bleach, his NOBLE PHANTASM would likely be Zangetsu, which would have an ability similar to Excalibur and Enuma Elish.

However, this is the ONLY thing it can do. It can do ONE thing that the world does not normally allow; one RM could create a world where anything it dies (Nevermore), and another could cause fears to turn into physical entities (Night of Wallachia).
Ryomasa wrote:For example, a Marble Phantasm could alter reality to create a heart attack in the target. This is just speculation, but it seems to be a good example.

Huh? Isn't that the same thing? The reason why the reality marble need to be maintained is because the world is constantly trying to crush it.
TYPE-MOON Wiki wrote:The nature of his being is owed to his Reality Marble, the Lair of the Beast King, which allowed him to merge with the beasts and transform his body into its present state. Because it is only being deployed within his own body and never superimposes over the external space, it is capable of avoiding the corrective impulse by the world and can be sustained almost indefinitely as long as he possesses enough energy.
