Ok everyone... lets get started.
I've been lurking around for ages and I cant take any more "I bet X is more powerfull than Y". Sometimes there are so extreme stupidness writen that I want to tear my eyes out and stomp on them. I know I cant stop this but for Christ's sake please look into things before posting crap...
But rejoice, I shall help ye (egoistical bastard), I shall write a small review concerning the strenghts of the main Nasuverse characters.
Side Note: why am I writing this shit here on the Melty Blood Chat? Because I can! (it makes sense, no? fighting game-fighting-power)
Now I begin:
-Arcueid Brunestud: True Ancestor
The last living full-blooded True Ancestor Arc has insane amount of power at her disposal. Useing most of her power to hold back her thirst she is operating at roughly 30%. Still this mere 30% is more than enought to defeat technicly anything in the Nasuverse. Regeneration, self-reconstruction, and invincable at full-moon, and as a bit of an overkill her Reality Marble, the Marble Phantasm, can obliterate anything, recreate anything without regard to the opponent or effect. In terms of strength, speed and endurance she is unmatched. I dont know why but people like to match her against Fate/Stay Night Servants... okay I'll play along. Which Servant could use a Reality Marble? One, and he was an exception, and Unlimited Blade Works would be no match for her. So to make it shorth Arc is practicly un-beatable. I wont waste more time on her.
-Ciel: Church Executioner
Fast, strong, agile, smart, and most of all immortal thanks to Roa (not like she likes it). Thanks to her weapons and the fact that she can use both magic and holy sacraments she is a top class vampire hunter. But still she has no godlike power (sorry Ciel fans), I cant imagine why people put her on Arc's level. Her anger, her dangerous love for curry and her weigth makes her a foe to most monsters of the Nasuverse.
-Hisui & Kohaku: Synchronizers
What the hell, they dont even have any powers except to synchronize with people. Still no one in the whole Nasuverse should be so stupid, so insane, so idiotic as to anger the most horrific force that ever walked the face of the planet: Magical Girl Amber! (Kohaku). Really anyone who messes with her or her beloved sister is doomed. Anyone. Dont know how but she'll find a way. Even though they are not Reality Marble's Kohaku's cleaning and Hisui's cooking is probably the most hellish destrucitve terror that exists.
-Akiha Tohno: Non-human
Thanks to her inhuman strength, endurace and cunning she is quite the danger. Her special power, Plunder, draws the lifeforce out of anything in her eyesight in the form of heat thus weakening anything and at the same time making her stronger. While the exact power of this ability is unknown (and I am thinking about resistance pierceing) it should not be taken lightly. If confronted with her undeveloped breasts she will show you the true meaning of suffering.
-Aoko Aozaki: True Sorceress
Enjoy your rape. As one of the five living True Sorcerers (and not to mention she uses the True Magic: Destruction) Aoko is unstopable. Its useless to waste words on her. She's like Slayer from Guilty Gear, only stronger.
-Satsuki Yumizuka: Vampire
Now she was a suprise. After getting bitten by Roa she did not turn into one of the many Dead, she instantly became a full-fledget vampire!
Even more suprising she has a Reality Marble at her disposal (Autumn Leaves) that can drain mana in masses, out of living things (this may be instant death to spirits and Servants). She is very inexperienced but maybe in 20 or 50 years when they make a real scenario for her she will become something much more than a meaningles victim. Go! Sacchin, Go!
-Shiki Tonho: DEATH INCARNATE
You're dead. If his opponent lets him close Shiki's Eyes Of Death Perception will erase the target from existence with a cut (except Arc in full moon).
His Nanaya blood burns in him with great fervor if he nears inhuman creatures giving him hightened perception, agility, strength and endurance.
Still he is a mere human so great care must be heald when facing his opponents.
There is 50% chance that you will die regardless what you are if you face him.
-Len: Succubus/Dream Familiar
Now this will cause an uproar...
Len is one of the most powerfull characters in the world.
Okay I might exegarate a bit but lets think:
Len's master was a very powerfull Magus and Len is just as strong as him in regard of knowlage and magic. She is a mastercrafted familiar, probably unique in the whole world. She has almost unlimited magic capacity well illustrated by the fact that she, as a magical being that feeds on souls or through a contract, managed to stay alive for
00 years without charging herself up. Not even the Heroic Spirits of F/SN could hope to survive even a week without nurisment (and dont bring up Gilgamesh, he was feasting on children while waiting for the 5th Holy Grail War).
She has complete control over dreams, probably over minds and maybe a little control over reality itself, and no one knows her true potencial.
If you take light of her be ready to get powned.
Roa and Nrvnqsr Chaos are powerfull Dead Apostoles but the small fact that they're DEAD makes it useless to rant about them. But I would like to point out that Shiki is a bit of an overkill.
I left out the Melty Blood charaters on purpose because as much as I like Melty Blood its not canon part of the Nasuverse but a doujin work.
Here comes the Fate/Stay Night characters:
Side Note: the reason I dont like comparing the Servants to Tsukihime character is that they have no reason to fight each other, Servants are made to fight Servants in the Holy Grail War, not monsters and such.
-Saber: Heroic Spirit
To humans Heroic spirits are godlike (lol, some of them ARE gods...) and Saber stands out of the other spirits like a shining beacon. If she has a capable master it is very likely that she will beat anyone. Her Noble Phantasms Invisable Air, Excalibur, and Avalon are exceptional in every regard, as is she.
She can be however be suprised and even overpowered. Her stats are all very high and her will is almost unbrakeable, she is an expert swordsman and a noble ruler, not to mention she is immune to magic and at the same time has exeptional magic capacity.
-My king, I pray that you can rest your weary soul at last, may your dream lie in Avalon until you return.
-Archer: Heroic Spirit
That bastard as a Servant is medicore at the least, his stats are low, his magic resistance is almost non existant and he isn't even a real warrior.
But that little Reality Marble is more than enought to kill anyone who faces him. Bastard.
More pathetic than Archer but Unlimited Blade Works still rocks the world. He's a real nice guy, very likeable, shame how low he falls (see who Archer really is and you'll get it if you dont know what I'm writing about). UBW is a very specialised power that can summon an infinite number of Noble Phantasms for use. Enjoy your rain of swords.
-Berserker: Heroic Spirit
Holy Crap! This juggernaut of destruction excells in all of his stats and his Noble Phantasm gives him limited immortality. On the side note he's insane but whatever, he gets the job done. What did you expect from a god?
-Rider: Heroic Spirit
She's hot. While this does not matter in battle its still note worthy. Her Noble Phantasms are extremly powerfull, but at the same time she herself is weaker than the other servants, but she makes up with cunning, and tactics. If she had a competent master, not some rodent she could pose quite the threath.
-Lancer: Heroic Spirit
The perfect hunter. His stats, skills and Noble Phantasms make him ideal to the task of killing the opponent with one strike to the heart. Only some unexcepted, powerfull defence can stop him. Shame he's an arrogant bastard on the outside, he's a real good guy.
-Gilgamesh: Heroic Sonofabitch
I take back what I wrote about Lancer being an arrogant prick. This guy is a walking ass, with the power of a god (he himself is part god, lol). His stats are almost all maxed out and his Noble Phantasms (especialy Enuma Elish) are bordering on being Reality Marbles. The guy is arrogant, egoistic, narcisstic, gloating animal and that makes him even more dangerous. Not even a full powerd Saber can beat him. Insane.
-Caster: Heroic Spirit
She is useless in hand-to-hand combat and if she is faced with a determend opponent she is likely to be killed. The problem is that she is a Magus from the Time Of Gods and commands magic to the extent that it borders on True Magic. If she is given time to collect magic from innocent victims she will be able to cast allmighty destructive spells with nearly no effort. Her Noble Phantasm, Rule Breaker is special because it can eliminate any magic in the world (probably cant dispell True Magic) even Command spells (thus she can take over other Servants)
-Assassin: Heroic Spirit
The guy is compleatly useless, he isnt even a real Heroic Spirit just some phoney. He is barely able to slow down his opponets if he fights with all of his power. He doesnt have any Noble Phantasms but he is very skilled with his katana.
-True Assassin: Heroic Spirit
Lol, Dark Sabre, Dark Berzerker. It a waste of time writing that (s)he (or it) is extremly dangerous to anything.
This little girl is a very powerfull Magus, but she still isnt enough to fight against a Servant, but she could probably defeat another Master with ease.
-Rin Tohsaka: Magus
Born into a very old line of Magus Rin has pretty extensive knowlage about magic. Her power to store magical energy in jewels enables her to cast spells that she could not normally be able to. But there is a limit to the jewels.
-Shinji Mato: Magus Wanabee
This dog is useless, doesn't even deserve life. Weak, cowardly, egoistic crap that can only cause trouble if left alive. Enjoy having your heart ripped out.
-Avenger: Heroic Spirit
Nah, too much spoilers.
But in terms of power he is quite weak.
Kirei Kotomine: Magus/Chruch Operative
Well, lol, the evil bastard is quite strong.
Wielding both Church weapons (Black Keys) and strong magic he is a powerfull opponent, but still human.
Enjoy your cursed existence.
Soichiro Kuzuki: Human
Whoah... no magic, no powers, nothing.
But he is still able to beat up servants with nothing but his fists. His rare assassin skills make him a worthy match for the weaker or weakend Servants if his fists are strengthend by Caster (he is her master). Still human so enjoy death.
I left out a few characters but that should be enough...
Now I'm done with ranting so Good-Bye folks.
