But can any servant defeat EMIYA?
And I'm not talking about Shirou Emiya. No, I'm not talking about Servant Archer EMIYA. Hell, I'm not talking about Counter Guardian EMIYA either.
I'm talking about Counter Guardian EMIYA with infinite Prana (which is capable of Unlimited Blade Works with Excalibur, Avalon and EA), his two original Kansho and Bakuya (which grant him magic resistance, STR, AGI, MGI and Monster slayer buffs) and infinite swords from his back (capable of using Caladbolg, Hrunting, Rho Aias, Gae bolg, Caliburn, Nine lives and even the whole Gate of Babyloni(capable of using ea and Enuma Elish) and a Arodnight because he is a master in swords, a perfect Excalibur (that can use Avalon), control of both Saber and Rin , with Dark Sakura Matou shadow and face implanted on his chest, his four Clones from all routes guarding him and Berserker with Nine Lives floating behind him AFTER he absorbed 7 servants from the First Holy grail, entered Archetype Earth Mode, call the Types from the stars on everybody and used Unlimited Blade works: infinite creation of swords so he can use their weapons while they are under even more swords.
No, it wouldn't help at all.
Weapons in UBW get ranked down, so nothing can get past God Hand as all rank A weapons go down to B. He has to use Broken Phantasm to hurt Heracles (or trace sufficient strength), and the reality marble being up doesn't help him at all in that regard.
It'd probably be a disadvantage cause Berserker now has a clear path to make a beeline for Archer while in Fate he was in a crowded castle. And all weapons suffer a -1 rank, meaning almost nothing gets through God Hand.
Archer would literally run out of mana trying to get through the God Hand. His base stats are too low, he'd have to use his most powerful projections to even scratch Herc all while avoiding a servant with A+ ranked strength and A ranked agility.
Partially wrong, though. It's true that lower than A don't get through GH, but EX still do, if they even get downgraded it would only be to A, A+ or whatever, therefore still enough.
Also I've always been under the impression that they only get a downgrade outside of UBW and keep their full rank inside. Might be wrong on that one though.
Indeed, but it still means that it's theoretically possible to do so.
Also as a quick note for the original argument: Berserker died 6-7-8 times to Caliburn, which is stated to be a B-A+ rank. Given that it was projected by him, that would make it a C-B+, and yet it got through GH just fine, and multiple times at that.
Therefore usual argument about GH working however Nasu feels like at the moment and therefore Archer may win against Berserker every other day.
Caliburn damage output was cause of the miracle of it being reunited with Saber at that moment. It's an asspull that should really be rewritten; I wouldn't take it as a solid measurement of UBW's abilities.
Yes, that's supposed to be the A+ of the rank variance. Which still doesn't account for the fact that it should probably be lowered to B+ due to projection, or the fact that Berserker becomes immune to what killed him already once.
Which I'm still confused about, I don't recall reading anything like that anywhere in the VN.
Also, if UBW's A++ rank refers to weapons already downgraded, then Archer should be able to win in a fair fight (which we have never seen anyway).
As I said, Nasu changes idea every other week.
I'm not a Fatefag, and have no interest in getting into the series, but I'm stopping by to say that Unlimited Blade Works is one of the coolest attack names I've ever heard.
You can go back to your shitposting now.
Fate has shitloads of cool attack names. It's practically a trademark.

And they're just from F/SN. Let alone the spinoffs.
Sure he can't trace EX, but that's because they go back to A++(hence the E-A++).
What he can't trace is shit like EA or Excalibur. Well he can trace, not replicate and just really degraded version that will make him self-destruct because not enough mana so it's kinda pointless.

Fate is way too chuuni
and I love it.
we dont know if archer only used broken phantasm caliburn for every berserker life, and we also have the overedge kanchou and bakuya being written into canon as well, other than that, the only thing i woulld change is archer taking at least 10 lives out of berserker, so that the life taken by rin and the one by caliburn is less of an asspull
