Is there any way he could have won the Holy Grail?
>>
>>135760946
He just wanted to play in a hardcore magical tournament.

He had no chance against those other cheaters.
>>
>>135761085
>cheaters
But his team was also cheating!
>>
>>135760946
Why was he killed?
He posed no threat to Kiritsugu or anybody at all near the end, and I thought Kiritsugu only killed people if it was for the greater good.
He just wanted to escape with his lover.

In the Fourth Holy Grail War, the following strategy would insure the absolute victory of Team Lancer:
Kayneth must not let his Servant recognize such things as honour on the battle field or knights' pride. He must let Diarmuid realize that the Holy Grail War was merely dirty chores that needed to be done.
In order to fulfill the previous item, Kayneth must avoid any contact between Diarmuid and Saber with his best effort.
In combat, Kayneth must prioritize securing an exit. In a battle, missions would be considered accomplished if Diarmuid scored one hit with Gae Buidhe. Repeat this tactic, and exhaust all hostile teams.
Capitalize on Team Berserker. Team Berserker was a powerful enemy against all other teams, but Lancer had an advantage due to compatibility. It would be optimal to let Berserker destroy the other teams and reach the finale. He could then be defeated at that point.
>>
>>135760946
1) Ditch the bitch
2) Prevent Deermud from fighting Saber in his first encounter and becoming obsessed with muh honorable duel.
3) Don't seek more command spells
3) Ally with Lancelot to get rid of the other servants, supporting Kariya so he doesn't die.
4) Kill Lancelot at the very end, since Lancer is his worst match up.

According to Zero Material, he did have a shot at winning the war.

>>135764248
Read Zero Material. Diarmuid could have won if Kayneth used a different strategy, that includes getting rid of Gil.
>>
>>135764248
That's "absolute victory", pal. Not "high likelihood of success" or "everything except..."
Diarmuid + Lancelot can beat Gil, apparently. Presumably when he's too busy posturing about mongrels.
>>
>>135764348
Yes I know what it says, but I still don't buy that they could get rid of Gil that way.
>>
>>135764444
Quads confirm.
Lancelot has a decent counter for GoB and Vimana, and Diarmuid specializes in defeating strong enemies who relies on powerful NPs with his strategy.
Also, GoB spam probably can't do much against Lancer's A+ agility and EotM True combo.

We've been through this a thousand times already, no he does not.

And even Excalibur can't cut through that armor, what makes you think Diarmuid can?

>>135763989
>>135764011

These two nailed it. Since Diarmuid got the short straw, being knigtly, pure and just and still killed for the hell of it, his true potential will never be show or known. He still managed to fuck all the rest up by cursing the grail. He still hurt Saber pretty good. Diarmuid had all the potential and simply got a bad master/servant match.

>>135764129

No

>>135763922

He isnt't interested in anyone except for Saber (but probably only in a professional manner), but bitches want him because of Irish curse love-spot thingy. His curse follows him: always accused for doing nothing and not getting a fair trial or setting or romantic interest ever.

Diarmuid if Cu isn't bold enough to NP as soon as possible. Probably Cu otherwise, but maybe not (depends on if Diarmuid can prevent Gae Bolg's activation with Gae Dearg).
>Diarmuid vs. Medusa, who wins?
Diarmuid is a slayer of warriors, not of monsters. There is no way he could possibly handle Pegasus. Additionally, his magical energy (D rank) is far too low to prevent Cybele from petrifying him. Overwhelming Medusa victory.
>Diarmuid vs. EMIYA, who wins?
Complicated. Depends on if Gae Dearg dispels projections. Probably Diarmuid if so, probably EMIYA if not. Could go either way in any case due to sheer unpredictability of both's fighting styles.

If it's on Kojirou's anti-servant battleground, Kojirou either fights to a draw or wins.

>>135766074
Projections collapse whenever the image created by the caster's mind doesn't match the item that exists in the world.
Disrupting them at all, even momentarily such as by making contact with Gae Dearg, should make them crumble into magical energy.
But it won't, say, destroy Unlimited Blade Works if he deploys the bounded field.
>>
>>135766224
>Disrupting them at all, even momentarily such as by making contact with Gae Dearg, should make them crumble into magical energy
Citation fucking needed.
Gae Drearg's anti magic is not neatly as powerful as shit like Rule Breaker. If it can't dispel weak-ass magic like Invisible Air or Saber's armor, it sure as hell can't dispell shit that directly comes from a Reality Marble, magecraft so complicated it's close to being True Magic.
We've never seen Archer having any sort of trouble sustaining a projection, that image bullshit happens to Shirou only, and when he's still learning how to use his skills.
>>
>>135765860
>That was Invisible Air

Invisible Air makes Sabers sword invisible. It is not a different sword and it does not make it any weaker.

>Saber was being cautious

Irrelevant to the point. She was trying to kill him and he stood there and took it casually.

>Implying Shirou Saber is as good as Diarmuid without using Excalibur.

Yes? Saber's stats are still relatively high even under Shirou. Diarmuid has better agility but that's it.

Maybe you should read the VN.

And this is all beside the point of the original question, which was about Diarmuid cutting thorough Gil' armor.
>>
>>135766561
>Citation fucking needed.
Fate/Stay Night itself. It's how projections work. Once the illusion that exists doesn't match the illusion that is thought of, they fall to bits. Tohsaka's explanations. It's why Shirou's swords evaporate after getting scratched.
>Gae Drearg's anti magic is not neatly as powerful as shit like Rule Breaker. If it can't dispel weak-ass magic like Invisible Air or Saber's armor, it sure as hell can't dispell shit that directly comes from a Reality Marble, magecraft so complicated it's close to being True Magic.
It wouldn't be dispelling them directly, it would be disrupting them momentarily, then they fall apart on their own because projection is fragile like that.
>We've never seen Archer having any sort of trouble sustaining a projection, that image bullshit happens to Shirou only, and when he's still learning how to use his skills.

Projection is literally just shaping magical energy and pretending it's real. It's not complex at all. That's why it's utter shit for most magi.
Shirou's swords are just because Shirou is really, really good at pretend swords. But it's still just magical energy, the very thing that Gae Dearg severs.
You complain it can't deal with the C rank Invisible Air, yet it perfectly and instantly deals with the A++ Knight of Honor.

First, Tohsaka doesn't know shit about Shirou's projection. Illya proves this in HF.

Second, Shirou is not Archer. He has trouble mantaining projections because he is an amateur that didn't even know the true nature of his magic.

Third, and most important, you need to post proof that Gae Drearg affects projections that way. The mechanics of Archer's projections are vague as fuck, since he showed that he can sustain the image of projections that are almost completely destroyed beyond recognition just fine. Rho Aias is the ultimate proof of this.

>Archer loses dozens of swords in his exchange against Cuchulainn
He was getting disarmed, it has nothing to do with the projection's images. The projections never gave away because he lost focus, they were being physically shattered by sheer strength or taken out of his hands.

>Projection is literally just shaping magical energy and pretending it's real. It's not complex at all. That's why it's utter shit for most magi.
Shirou doesn't actually do projections. Projection is a shit magic that's only temporary, acts as an overlay to existing objects, and is used for rituals. Shirou's projections violate the laws of equivalent exchange and could potentially stay in the world as long as he lives, like the stuff in his shed.
Shirou's only magic is UBW, it was mentioned a crapton of times everywhere. And that magic is some of the most complex shit you'll see among modern magi.
And Knight of Honor doesn't get affected by GD, it's the NPs it creates, which are very low rank, not A++.
>>
>>135766831
Tohsaka didn't even realise the true nature of Shirou's "projections". They are not projections in sense of magi projections but something that is borderline true magic.

Again Shirou and Archer are tracing not projecting. Similar but different.

Cu was breaking them normally and occasionaly disarming.
>>
>>135767262
>First, Tohsaka doesn't know shit about Shirou's projection. Illya proves this in HF.
It's still Gradation Air, just like his Strengthening is still the same magecraft.
It abides by the fundamental same property of shaping magical energy into a device.
>Second, Shirou is not Archer. He has trouble mantaining projections because he is an amateur that didn't even know the true nature of his magic.
Practice doesn't change this quality at all.
>Third, and most important, you need to post proof that Gae Drearg affects projections that way.

Rho Aias is the ultimate proof of this.
Gae Dearg interferes with patterns of magical energy and that's all that a projection is at its barest nature. Even created by Unlimited Blade Works, they are just magical energy.
>He was getting disarmed, it has nothing to do with the projection's images. The projections never gave away because he lost focus, they were being physically shattered by sheer strength or taken out of his hands.
And they immediately disintegrate. There are no swords littering the ground.

But I don't care about this enough to go further. Nasu could easily write it either way, there's plenty of space to justify it, and it could be denied in any case.
>>
>>135767576
It is not Gradation Air, which refers to projection.

Shirou's and Archer's version is tracing. Its born out of their misunderstanding of the proper magecraft, which should be creating an object that would disappear some time after as its an phantasmal existence with no history. Tracing creates the items with "history", thus makes them permanent.

The only "projection" they use is when they are using the weapons without a fully realised UBW. Even then this is not a "projection" but "materialization" where the object they've originally traced remain in UBW and only it's phantasm is called but again once called those work as if they're the traced version.
>>
>>135767506
>>135767572
>>135767962
Fate/Side Material disagrees with you.
It's the same as normal magecraft projection, just on an impossibly efficient level.

>Projection [Magecraft]
>Gradation Air.
>A sorcery that uses magical energy to materialize a mirror image of an object.
>As Rin mentioned in the story, it's not very efficient.
>That's because, if you're making a replica of something, rather than using projection it's easier and more practical just to gather the materials and build it yourself.
>Normally, it is only used to project a substitute for an item that has already been lost, and for just a few minutes within one's own time axis.
>At any rate, since Gradation Air is just supposed to be a short-term rental of the item's outward appearance, you can see why the version used by Shirou and Archer is completely ridiculous. It's no wonder that Rin wanted to kill him when she saw his shed.
>Of course, Shirou can only project things that are related to weapons in some way – or more specifically, swords. Modern weapons are off limits.
>Well, technically he can pull out shields or armor, too, if he strains himself to his utmost limits, but the effects only last for an instant and the cost is enormous.
>>
>>135767576
>It abides by the fundamental same property of shaping magical energy into a device
Then it's just the same as Saber's armor, which can't be dispelled by Gae Drearg.
>Practice doesn't change this quality at all.
Dude, you need to back your shit up with quotes. This is downright wrong. Archer's skills are miles ahead of Shirou's, he could project K&B in his sleep, while Shirou almost killed himself every time he attempted a projection. Archer even mocks Shirou's projection skills in UBW.
>Gae Dearg interferes with patterns of magical energy and that's all that a projection is at its barest nature. Even created by Unlimited Blade Works, they are just magical energy
Saber's armor is the same, and even servants are just magical energy. You don't seem to get that Gae Drearg doesn't fucking dispel magical energy, it just weakens it's effects somewhat. Who even says that Gae Drearg's magic is stronger than UBW's magic? GD is a mundane NP, while UBW is all kinds of broken. Dispelling a common servant prana armor that isn't even a NP is easier than dispelling a prana Noble Phantasm, and Diarmuid can't even do that.
>And they immediately disintegrate
Citation needed. The VN doesn't say so.
Also, who says Archer isn't dispelling them on his own? why waste prana supporting broken sword shards?
>>
>>135768139
>Also, who says Archer isn't dispelling them on his own? why waste prana supporting broken sword shards?
It doesn't cost magical energy to maintain a projection. All the magical energy is expended in their creation, then they persist wtih what they have.

The Grail does things on a whim. Diarmuid literally wanted it to bring disaster on whoever touched it. It exploded in blood during Kirei's and Kiritsugu's fight before anyone even looked at it, and it did so while filling up with blood from the fallen servants - including Diarmuid's blood. Objections?

Projection skill quality don't change what projections are made of.
Even if he doesn't cause them to collapse, doesn't this just mean projections could not be used to block or parry Gae Dearg? Even if it just disrupts them for the single moment it makes contact. That's a lethal disadvantage for EMIYA in any case.

Also, if there were shattered swords littering the ground, Cu would have commented on that and not been confused about Archer's trickery. Also, the ufotable anime which was vetted by Nasu had them evaporating.

I for one don't fuss over such technicalities. The interaction wouldn't need to be breaking the projections, it'd be whether Archer could defend against Gae Dearg like he can against Gae Bolg. Whether his swords vanish or are just ignored but intact doesn't really matter.

He's fucking evil and he loves it. I cheered when I first saw his beatdown of Berserker animated in UBW and his screentime is always gold. He's arrogant but he's the most god damned powerful and wealthy being on the planet. Even if that arrogance wasn't completely justified (which it is) I'd still love him because arrogant characters that don't ever take it down a notch are just maddeningly entertaining to me.

Did you miss the part when he literally broke GB so Saber could fight on equal grounds with him? he removed the disadvantage of Saber's injury AND removed his own advantage by losing one of his NPs.

Lancer wouldn't think it twice and just stop using GD, assuming it can even destroy projections, just to be able to match his skills against the guy who went toe to toe against Heracles, Cu Chulain and King Arthur.

Fate/Zero.

>It was a meticulous plan to use one of his two Noble Phantasms first, and cunningly lure his enemy into carelessness. Saber was not angry with the trick; rather, she eagerly wanted to applaud Lancer's scheme.
>This enemy is perfect.
>She encountered such a flawless enemy for the first battle of the Holy Grail War. As a warrior who lived by the sword, it was inevitable that her fighting spirit ascend to the skies when faced with a fabulous opponent. At the same time Diarmuid ua Duibhne, the one that stood opposing Saber, was also forcing himself to face her not only with tricks, but spending all of his wits on this ultimate battle.
>Lancer would have detected Saber's vigor without words. A satisfied grin seeped up Lancer's mouth. His heart felt the exact same way as Saber's did. Lancer respected Saber for sacrificing her left arm to block the surprise attack of his Gáe Buidhe that was unleashed for the kill. It added an extra sheen to the joy Lancer associated with the worth of winning this battle.
>As knights, the two Heroic Spirits even echoed each other on their souls' desire to do battle.
>"Prepare yourself, Saber, I will win this time."
>"Only if I do not win first, Lancer."
>The two exchanged their bold provocations as both planned their next, fatal attack, slowly and cautiously approaching the other.

No, Kayneth was truly a great magus, he's officially like five times the magus that Rin is according to interviews, but that doesn't really translate into battle ability necessarily.

What the fuck did you think I meant by "their duel"? I didn't say "their rematch". In any case, how would that change anything? He didn't break Gae Buidhe to level the playing field at all. He didn't want to level the playing field. Nothing ever implies as much, nor would he have broken Gae Buidhe to do so.

Except he did. Remember how Saber tried to fight pretending she was still injured and he didn't want her to do so? I guess not.
He also didn't kill Kerry or Saber when they were helpless, and had to be ordered to fight with a command spell when Berserker showed up.
He is a moralfag whiteknight that loves honor, you're just arguing against the core of his character. His whole personal tragedy revolves around dishonoring his lord involuntarily because of his natural charm.

So? Saber starting the rematch injured and not being able to use her NP was a disadvantage, he did level the playing field.

That is not the reason he broke Gae Buidhe. It was a drawback for him that he considered worth the cost of victory. Read the fucking book.

She is called a top class servant for a reason, because her abilities really can accomplish miracles.

However it was noted that because her master was Shinji, she could not show any of her real ability there, and as a digression she couldn't really get into her "Challenge fate itself" mode because fighting a weak master like MC couldn't excite her in the end.

She can only show her true strength against an indomitable foe. After all El Draque is the one that beat the Invincible Armada in life, she only gets excited when its called impossible.

She likes being the underdog, not the top dog.

In the end her defeat came down to going up against the "player" at the start, since he know the player can't ever lose a game, and because her master was Shinji.

Shirou would spend his time trying to fix his dad. Expect long lectures followed by an emergency dropping out of the war/rescuing Illya, then seeking to dismantle the great grail before calamity strikes.
Archer could not possibly cause a self-destroying paradox in such a different universe, and he cannot take his anger out on a boy he doesn't even recognize, so he'd at least try to spare a version of himself his own fate.

Poor compatibility in an odd sense, despite people maybe thinking they're superficially the same.

I'd say Robin Hood and Kiritsugu would work out far better.

Archer despite how he acts, is a lot softer than Kiritsugu, which would cause some strife as it goes along. Its noted even in the difference of Robin and EMIYA's fighting styles; Robin sets traps to kill people, EMIYA sets traps to disable or dissuade them.

Not the same guy, but..

Its said in that data books that if Diarmund had not met Saber like he did, then his deep rooted HONOR would not have awakened, and he would have fought more inline with Kayneth's expectations.

At his base self, Diarmund would not mind fighting without honor so much, but because he met Saber, he became an Honorfag during the 4th war.

In order to win the war with Diarmund, its noted in his entry he must not be allowed to meet with Saber, and he must simple understand that the grail war is a dirty deed that must be accomplished, rather than honorable fights.
>>
>>135770530
Nobody is saying he fights without honor you dumb strawmanning shit.
It's just that "honor" does not mean "cripple myself for no reason whatsoever".
Saber was crippling herself because of her guilt that Diarmuid would break his weapon for the sake of victory. She was not crippling herself to give Diarmuid a fair chance, but to alleviate her own shame.

How about I quote it?
>Indeed, Lancer had once used the demonic lance Gáe Buidhe to seal the strength of Saber’s left hand, but in the battle against Caster last night, Lancer had destroyed the cursed yellow lance, proactively giving up the advantageous lead. But Saber’s pride would not settle for accepting Lancer’s concession, and so she intentionally did not use her left hand. This, then, was an action of true chivalry.
>But—even that concession that was noble enough to inspire instantaneous respect—Lancer did not welcome this action from his heart.
>If the action of casting away Gáe Buidhe had caused Saber unnecessary concern.
>From the final result, it meant that Lancer’s actions had dampened the enthusiasm of the showdown between the two. It was a battle in which both parties did not have any regrets, and used all their strength to face off, that Lancer had hoped for. If Saber had held back because she could not put aside her consideration of the fairness of circumstance, Lancer was truly somewhat uneasy about the battle.
>"—If you misunderstand, I will be very troubled. Lancer."
>As if having guessed what Lancer was thinking, Saber shook her head with a stern but calm expression.
>"If I were to use my left hand, my shame would definitely slow my sword. Facing your superb skills with the lance, this would be a fatal mistake."

That is literally the very context of their duel.

Yes. Because he accepted the cost of breaking Gae Buidhe.
>And because of that, he wanted Saber to be able to use her left hand to show all her fighting skills.
Yes. Because he accepted the cost of breaking Gae Buidhe.
What is this supposed to "prove"? He didn't break Gae Buidhe for her to fight at full power. He just honorably accepted her to fight at full power despite breaking Gae Buidhe. He did not expect, nor want, a concession. He still broke the weapon for a completely unrelated reason.
>Hyperbole, by the way.
The narration IMMEDIATELY follows up with confirming that.

>Shining in her eyes was only an awe-inspiring, coolly clear will to fight. There was no carelessness, nor was there hesitation.
>Perhaps to her, the extent of the injury to her left hand was only of secondary importance in battle. Perhaps the most important contributor to Saber’s ability to obtain victory was in the clear fighting spirit and passion for battle that had been honed to purity.
>To sever her confusion, she would rather give up her left hand—the pride hidden in her heart, then, was her greatest weapon.

Not hyperbole, not the character bluffing. Narration says "if she wasn't doing that, she actually would cripple herself harder than doing that".

Literally apples to oranges. You're comparing invisible air to the magical energy saturated golden Excalibur, not just Excalibur.

Fate/Complete Material III World Material

Invisible Air
Rank: C
Type: Anti-Unit
Range: 1~2
Maximum Targets: 1 Object

A barrier that renders the blade hidden by entangling it with layers of wind, and altering the light refraction rate. It is closer to a sorcery than a Noble Phantasm. By using this barrier, Artoria can attack without the opponent recognising the sword’s reach and trajectory. Since concealing one’s Noble Phantasm also conceals one’s true identity, Invisible Air was highly effective at the early stages of the Holy Grail War. It also has other advantages such as increasing attack power and accuracy. Entangling the sword with wind and using the wind as the blade enhances the attack power, while having an “invisible weapon” provides an advantage in accuracy. Since the advantage of Invisible Air lies in “invisibility”, the accuracy increase will not occur while engaging opponents who possess Eye of the Mind or do not depend on vision.
In the Fourth Holy Grail War, Artoria unleashed the condensed air and used it as a long-range weapon that mauls down groups of enemies --- “The Iron Mallet of the Wind King”.

Jekyll and Hyde, but we already have this servant in two stories now.

Although his ability does functionally make him two servants.

I'm not saying that's who they've summoned, but the fact that I already proved that one exists, does negate your point, but I already proved its possible.

>>135771417
Dude, your argument is just a mess. It's like you don't even know your own point.
First you claimed, and I quote:
>SHE was the one leveling the playing field on HIM
But then you post this quote:
>Lancer had destroyed the cursed yellow lance, proactively giving up the advantageous lead.

According to the second one, Lancer had the lead and he then evened out the field. Yet you said Saber was the one with the advantage and was leveling up the field.
This is a clear contradiction. So I'll favor the quote from Zero and conclude that Lancer was the one giving away his advantage to have a fair fight.

Next time keep it concise and don't lose yourself in the heat of the debate, otherwise you'll just keep doing 180º turns on your own beliefs.

Lancer had the lead then gave up the lead. Not to even out the field, but to achieve another goal.
Saber then had the advantage, and yes, she then levels the field.

The fuck do you think Rin or Zouken knows, about who the strongest Saber class person in the universe is?

All they can do is guess "Well this seems to be the most famous swordsman I can imagine".

Grand Saber is probably an alternate universe version of Arthuria where she was born twice as strong, or whatever. I mean we know Male Arthur is also in the throne, so alternate versions are allowed.

To prove this, read the circumstances of him breaking Gae Buidhe. He declares his intentions freely. You will find no passages exclaiming it was so Saber could fight him at full force.
>Lancer had the lead then gave up the lead. Not to even out the field, but to achieve another goal.

Its easier to understand that GoB is better inherently; after all it has all the greatest shit, it costs no mana to spam, and it doesn't just have weapons or swords, rather it has all things in its vault.

But as long as UBW surpasses it in one sense while the RM is up, it can effectively disable it entirely due to compatibility in an interesting way.

Its not the guy who has all swords vs the guy who can create all swords; rather its the guy who has all things in general vs the guy who can only create swords, but it just so happens he creates them a bit faster than the other guy can pull them out, so he can entirely invalidate the other guy's ability within the short term enough to seal a victory.

Even if you have all the shit in the world, if you can't call upon any of it, you might be helpless.

More accurately, he would never participate in the Holy Grail War conflict.
A chalice that satisfies the greed of man, fueled by the violent murder of your opponents? He'd be disgusted at the concept.
Fate/Extra CCC notes the very idea of a Holy Grail is un-christian. That is because it is actually an adoption of a pagan relic, the Cauldron of Dagda. The earliest versions of the "holy grail" was a wide and deep saucer that flows with happiness and food.

That's really not how Fate works so much; there's no "main" world-line, nor is there "Well this is canon, and this is slightly less canon". I mean even in F/SN you have at least three main world-lines, and twenty or so odd world-lines that come out of each main world-line.

Extra is just as much of an alternate world line as Heaven's Feel is to Unlimited Blade Works in the end, and Apocrypha is just as much of an alternate world-line to them as mentioned. Everything factors in just the same under the Kaleidescope as "Something changed to allow this to happen".

None are more or less canon in any sense to any of the others, rather everything is alternate world-lines, where one thing caused a difference.

She gets stronger based on money, and drinks all the time, but she does honor contracts seriously. Whether the master that summons her is good or evil, she doesn't care, she'll just change her style to meet their style, since she's flexible like Karna. She likes greed but she has poor compatibility with Gilgamesh, since Drake likes money that you blow through quickly and have fun with, while also buying supplies while you're at it, not an inexhaustible supply. She eats through money in the same way as Rin, its just here today and tomorrow its gone.

He'd probably just see her as another Taiga, and she probably would get along with Taiga.

Drake's NP quest in G/O is just her getting revenge against Blackbeard for calling her an old lady, or a Christmas Cake or something.

This is the man who regards Zouken as scum and still possess a moral compass. He helps Shirou and Rin out way too much in Heaven's Feel to be described has having no principles.
>>
>>135788680
He regards Zouken as scum because his character disgusts him, not because he deems Zouken's actions "immoral". I mean just look at what he did to the orphans (which wasn't even necessary) to keep Gilgamesh in this world.
Before meeting Gil he considered himself to be deeply flawed and wanted to "rectify" his mentality but now he accepted that he only found joy in other people's suffering and there really isn't a set of moral values that you can apply to such a character trait.
Or perhaps I just missed it, in which case, what would you say are his principles?
>>
>>135788237
Because that is what it means for Noble Phantasms and Skills. It is a different case for parameters. For example, Enuma Elish is only EX for tearing apart the world, an attribute that doesn't increase its damage. Damage wise, it's only A++. But because it does a weird thing, it's EX.

>>135788763
It's actually harder to describe than I thought. The man actually never lies, even if it'd help him out. He straight out told Shirou he was a master in Heaven's Feel.

He performs his duties as a healer as you'd expect and, although he's not really the most impartial supervisor, he does actually explain the war for Shirou.

I always took Kotomine hating Zouken to be because Zouken shows no signs of remorse for doing evil things, whereas Kotomine does feel some guilt but he doesn't show it most of the time, but that could just be my interpretation.

Isn't that because he's a man of faith? Which is very contradictory I suppose, but being a priest and all.

Does he really? I don't think so. He does absolutely atrocious things and enjoys it. He acknowledges the fact that he's fucked, but he also accepts that the only way for him to enjoy life is to derive pleasure from other people's suffering.
He never feels remorse as much as he feels regret during situations like his father's death (and he just regretted not being able to kill him himself)

>Does he really? I don't think so. He does absolutely atrocious things and enjoys it. He acknowledges the fact that he's fucked, but he also accepts that the only way for him to enjoy life is to derive pleasure from other people's suffering.
He did feel extreme guilt about this in Fate/Zero, practically going into a rage when he realized what a monster he is at his core.
By Fate/Stay Night's time he's cooled down and just wants to know if it's alright for him to be this way in the eyes of god, showing that he's still ultimately not comfortable with it but also can't do anything about it.

Yes. But not in a normal Heavens Feel ritual.
In fact they were considered so OP in any situation that isn't "7 way FFA" that they were nerfed in Fate/Apocrypha.

Well, an evil person being a man of faith is really contradictory. It's the fact he's holding himself to those guidelines despite considering himself evil that shows that he has some principles.

Wasn't that before meeting Gilgamesh? After their meeting he accepts what he is.
Also, when the grail starts raining down the black mud in Fuyuki by the end of F/Z, he's enjoying it more than he's ever enjoyed anything before.
I've always been under the impression that he just accepted his nature and although he knew it was wrong, he chose the path of egoism.

>>135789794
They're never used to their full potential because if they were, there would be no story.
True Assassin in Strange Fake is probably the most broken servant if only because of his EX-rank presence concealment.
>>
>>135789902
>Wasn't that before meeting Gilgamesh? After their meeting he accepts what he is.
No, but Gil does help him get over it.
>Also, when the grail starts raining down the black mud in Fuyuki by the end of F/Z, he's enjoying it more than he's ever enjoyed anything before.
And he was freaking the fuck out over it. He was enjoying it to the max, but was absolutely enraged at that same fact.
>I've always been under the impression that he just accepted his nature and although he knew it was wrong, he chose the path of egoism.
He never fully accepted it, which is why he's searching for the answer in Fate/Stay Night. He's conflicted if it's okay for an evil person like himself to exist.
>>
>>135789873
>he has some principles
Those principles are really only applied to himself, though. He wanted to find a meaning to his existence and now that he's realized that the suffering of others was his reason to be (more or less), he's just doing his thing.
If he had principles that fell under morality/ethics, wouldn't he stop himself from committing such acts and perhaps kill himself?
>>
>>135789794
They are never used correctly and Hassan is a shit-tier servant anyway. If an actually good heroic spirit like Heracles was summoned in that class then it would be a considerable threat. We still haven't seen what the Hassan in Strange Fake is capable of, but I'm almost certain that he will just be killed off without accomplishing anything just like every other Hassan before him.
>>
>>135789960
>Gil does help him get over it
About that, I still don't understand why Gil is Chaotic Good. His behavior and personality make him either neutral evil or chaotic neutral.
>He was enjoying it to the max, but was absolutely enraged at that same fact
I might've skipped over this. Since he's a man of faith, why would he not prevent himself from doing it? He's not insane, so it's not like he's physically incapable of it.
>He's conflicted if it's okay for an evil person like himself to exist
Again, religion says it probably isn't

>>135789993
>Hassan is a shit-tier servant
F/SF Hassan seems to be on another level than the others.
Also, if Kerry had had a Hassan, he'd have won. It's about how you use Assassin, since they're shit in direct combat.
>>
>>135789962
>wouldn't he stop himself from committing such acts and perhaps kill himself?
At the very least, I can answer why he didn't kill himself.

There's the scene where he reminsense on his wife, and from what I remember, he says that the only reason he didn't kill himself was because his wife committed suicide to help him, and he wanted to try and show that her death wasn't completely pointless by living. Also, besides that, suicide is a sin in religion.
>>
>>135790154
Oh, okay. But her death was indeed pointless, as shown by the fact that he couldn't change.
>suicide is a sin
Is it still a sin when you're pretty much sacrificing yourself to save others?
>>
>>135764248

You can't just.. will yourself to not enjoy something. The sensations of pleasure will respond without conscious input.
>Again, religion says it probably isn't
He's conflicted. Being christian, he believes the all-knowing God made everyone with a plan, so if he was made broken, there had to be a reason for it. He can't un-break himself (he tried really hard), so he's just going forward broken. (It'd be against christian theology for a human to be made incapable of salvation)

Hassan is an amazing hero if he wasn't forced to brawl to the death with six heroes who are better at fighting than he is.
They pretty much agree that if he was in Fate/Apocrypha's great holy grail war, then nobody could get anything done because they'd have to be on guard against Hassan at all times.

Even Fate side Material does not state Shirou uses Gradation Air. It just rephrases Rins mistakes.

UBW looks like a combination of Reinforcement, Gradation Air, Analyze, and a few more magecrafts.
Rin can use Gradation Air.
Shirou uses something that looks like Gradation Air, but it leaves permanent objects if they are not Marked as Copies(I.E NPs). Gradation Air is unable to leave behind real lasting physical objects without a anchor of mana.

>>135790514
Rin only has 1 or 2 scenes where she states she is wrong. As direct passerby scenes.
She has 4 or 7 scenes in the VN where she states what she thinks about Shirous Magecraft.
Its obvious the fucking side material written by secondaries is going to turn out somewhat wrong.
There is more shit like that if you look for it.
>>
>>135790791
Fate/Side Material was written by Nasu himself as a sort of glossary about Fate/Stay Night. It was literally part of Fate/Stay Night's original release, as in, it came in the box. It is not the interpretation of a character, but the author's words.
>>
>>135790888
You should learn Japanese. Intent is done differently in the language.
I.E "you can see why the version used by Shirou and Archer is completely ridiculous" could be rephrased as "Version used by GARCHAR does not fit any criteria for Gradation Air".
There is other cases like this trough out most of FSN.
>>
>>135791048
Sure, if that were even the case.
" わずか数分間の、外見だけのレンタルな訳であるから、士郎・アーチャーの投影がどれだけデタラメかは 言うまでもない。凜が士郎の土蔵を覗き見て殺意を覚えたのも当然。 "
Basically is just "Shirou and Archer are bullshit", not "Shirou and Archer use a different spell entirely".
Nasu clarifies how Shirou's magecraft works in Fate/Complete Material III too. He is using those actual spells. (The description of him using Sword-element Reinforcement) It's not hard to understand.
>>
>>135788237
Isn't X more like "How good is it?" where the answer is just a paradoxical "yes", being always able to fulfill that task no matter how difficult it is, like the paragon of that ability. Enuma Elish is EX because no matter the form of reality it goes agaisn't, it always wins agaisn't it. Instead of having damage 1000, the damage is unresistable and does 100% of the enemy max HP without exception. It can only be countered by something of it's own magnitude, e.g. Avalon which is the ultimate avatar of safety, protection and utopia.

>>135789300
I think even Nasu said so himself. Arc fights on the opponent's powerlevel, but it's not Gil that's strong, it's his arsenal.
>>
>>135791394
But there are several EX NPs which aren't that strong.

He's far below most other heroes.

That's not really chaotic good, it's more chaotic neutral if anything.
My point is, Gil isn't a good guy. He might not be as evil as Kirei but he clearly doesn't give a fuck about morality as long as he gets to retain his status.

Your answer.

>Hardly a "good action".
He is a king, for him, summoned in a war where everyone must kill each other to reach success, he spared the life of one of his enemies, while Kiritsugu didn't spare happywheels life at all even if he was out of the war permanently.

>he clearly doesn't give a fuck about morality
Fate/stay night Gil lost some of that because he got in touch with the mud, and became more of a mortal, human, humans have flaws and so he gained some of those.

It is actually, moral relativism and that shit

Gilles and his Ryuunosuke believed that what they did made them closer to divinity, doesn't make them any less evil.

Gil is an ass, even if he believes what he's doing is "good" (it's only good for him and he doesn't care about others anyway), it doesn't make it good

If anything that's neutral and not good. >>135792914

Not only. He had basically destroyed Kayneth's reason to live at that point in order to reach the grail. Letting him live would be cruel for Kayneth and dangerous for Kenny (because a guy like Kayneth would want revenge, especially since Kiritsugu couldn't harm him directly)

He can't, that hassan was just shit.

Not shit, just never used as he should be
He's a specialized tool, not a general purpose one

Yeah but do you think Kirei could ever fight vs 100 hassans? THE TOPPEST OF KEKES

>>135793952
I never said that you retarded chimp
Just answered to you saying Hassan was shit, which he's not. Hopefully F/SF will demonstrate that clearly

Exactly, so there is no use talking about absolute good or evil, nor from the person own standpoint. Since as you just said, most people think that they are doing the right thing, or at the very least it is justifiable.

So the question remains, who is the one holding the moral compass and deciding the alignments?

>if Gil does a thing most people would call evil then he is still good because he believes himself to be good
>if I do a thing most people would call evil then I'm evil despite me believing I'm good as long as I'm not Gil.
Are you trying to say that Gil is the one deciding everyone's alignment?

Nasu.

He is pretty shit in 6vs6 battle royales no matter how you use him. The way he is intended to be used just doesn't work well in a standard Grail War.
In other formats he gets nerfed.

Then I hope someone will ask him how he can perceive and form of goodness in Gil.
>>
>>135794195
Yes it does. Presence concealment A+ or more is broken and someone skilled like Kiritsugu could dispatch all other masters in a day with Assassin. No need to confront servants. Even Gil would be helpless since he can't use GoB when he's just reliant on independent action.

>>135794195
Just use him to actually kill masters, and you are golden.
