Who can realistically (and canonically) defeat Gilgamesh at full power?
He's always hyped by Nasu and the source material as a Servant above all others, except Enkidu. A full power Enuma Elish is also much stronger than Excalibur.
So apart from Enkidu, who would force him into a draw, who could beat a serious, full-power Gil?
Gil is comparable to the bad guy who spends 15 minutes bragging and explaining his whole plan instead of just throwing 007 into the shark tank. Who can beat him head on is irrelevant because nobody actually needs to, he'll beat himself sooner or later because he's kinda dumb.
EMIYA could defeat him since his power specifically counters Gilgamesh's. A full powered Tamamo-no-ne might defeat him thanks to True Deity status bullshit.
Moving into Tsukihime, Arcureid, Ort, Primate Murder and Zelretch would all destroy him. Most of the other Dead Apostles Ancestors wouldn't stand much of a chance against Gilgamesh though.
Void SHIKI could potentially destroy him as well, depending on the topography and how the fight went down.
Both people at pic related with person on left being at 50% output.
I agree with most of the post but
>he's kinda dumb
Not at all. He has the most gigantic ego in the world (which isn't only a dumb shtick, see how the grail reacted when it poured down on him) but is really intelligent. He's extremely analytical and knowledgeable but his way of viewing himself as the center of the universe leads to him disregarding problems in the same way you'd disregard ants which "plotted" against you
That's called being stupid. He's book smart but real dumb. He does dumb shit, all the time, because he lets his ego and emotions rule him like an idiot, instead of using his head.
>The rings worn on his ten fingers that were given by God. The proof of a king and the founder of magecraft. When all ten rings are together, any and all magecraft performed by mankind are negated and placed under his control.
So every magus is basically fucked against this guy
>King Solomon's Third Noble Phantasm. The "|" of original sin. At first glance, it looks like a ring of light that encircles the Earth, but in reality it is an aggregation of some hundreds of millions of lines of light. Each of these lines carry extreme damage values comparable to Excalibur, an A-rank Noble Phantasm. Unfortunately, there is nothing on the surface of the Earth that surpasses the heat value of this Noble Phantasm.
And he's able to summon millions of excaliburs to combat Gilgamesh's Gate of Babylon
And most important of all
>EX rank luck
Purely off the top of my head:
- Enkidu. See their fight in F/SF. Gil shows up and immediately goes full-bore. He mentions that if Enkidu was Berseker he'd unlock his "full divine beast power" or something.
- Solomon, from Grand Order.
- Possibly other Grand Servants, though we don't yet know.
- 100% Arc (30% Arc is a bad matchup, but possible).
- Some of the other DAAs. I'm specifically thinking ORT and Primate Murder.
- Unlocked Archer in Extra, possibly.
- True Elementals/Gods/Divine Spirits with Authority.
Almost certainly others. Gil is at the apex of Heroic Spirits, but there is stuff out there that can beat him.
Well he got lucky because the grail didn't just outright consume his spirit after it completely melted him to the bare soul, and tried to assimilate him, which is why the ego schtick worked, he made the charisma check.
The next couple of times the charisma check didn't mean shit and he got consumed.
And having a personality like his is a valid flaw and reasonable for why he loses, not progressing past it is also a flaw. Andersen tells him as much in CCC.
Ars Almadel Salomonis is possibly one of the most OP NPs around. And don't forget Revelations, or Clairvoyance.
Although from what I understand of him and his goals, he and Gilgamesh would be pretty much completely opposed to one another.
>one of the top motherfuckers in the bible
Yeah, that would do it. Only Jesus or Moses inserted in Nasuverse could top that.
Powerlevel threads become cancer when they talk about characters from different series. This thread (so far) has been talking about characters from the same universe. There's nothing wrong with that.
Divine constructs like Excalibur are fundamentally non-replicable, though "degraded NPs with similar properties might be in stock".
Archer DOES state in the UBW route that he could probably create a very degraded version, but it would use up all his mana and be a suicide attack.
Shirou also creates a degraded Excalibur in the HF Normal end, using it to destroy the Grail, but this, too, consumes him and he is destroyed.
In Extra, the conditions of the Moon Cell are good enough to allow a degraded copy of Excalibur to be traced that can actually be called Excalibur, but it's still degraded.
In Kaleid, Illya with Emiya installed was able to trace Excalibur and use it, but this was apparently related to a combination of Illya's Grail status and the massive amount of mana she was drawing on.
In conclusion, creating just one degraded copy is hard enough to pull off. Creating hundreds is functionally impossible.
Well I like the implications that Parvati and Ishtar are ancestors of the Tohsaka sisters.
Saber keeps getting all these special snowflake powerups in each Fate iteration, it's nice the sisters get this. Being able to be hosts to Gods means they are good vessels. They were born to be superchildren, but you hardly see examples that supplement that.
Nasuverse aside, would this guy stand a chance?
If you can sneak something past his vision, because he can't conceptually see it, he is pretty dead.
So unmaterialized servant can kill him fine.
Materialized servants gets BTFO.
CCC Gilgamesh with MFTL space ship and universe busting Ea slaps him into submission
>With her Origin Form, she becomes capable of feats like moving faster than light and the reversal of time. She can reduce the distance from the Horsehead Nebula back to the original galaxy to zero to instantly cross the distance.
>If she were to increase in tails, each one would increase her power exponentially by nine.
>The mirror levitates around Caster in battle, which she uses it to hit enemies in close combat. Once its function as a Noble Phantasm is activated, she summons a circle of levitating Ofuda surrounded by a number of glowing Torii, charges the mirror with energy, and stands in the middle of the circle to draw in the energy. The energy drawn in allows her to use her abilities without the need to expend any magical energy for a limited time. It is normally a divine treasure of the land of the dead, that can even bring the deceased back to life, but the Servant form of Caster hasn't been granted the authority to use that much power. Otherwise, it could have been an EX rank Anti-World Noble Phantasm that has the range of covering a single country.
No. Stop memeing already.
Gilgamesh is the strongest heroic spirit, period.
Origin Gilgamesh(same as a Grand) is more powerful than Solomon.
>Andersen: The summoning of Heroic Spirits is the summoning of the Counter Force, and the Counter Force is what ensures that mankind continues. They appear in seven vessels to strike down a single foe. Who is this foe you ask? Could it be more obvious? A disaster that threatens our world, humanity’s world! An avatar of the end that will destroy not the planet but humanity, destroy the civilization that we have built! Born from civilization but a devourer of civilization, it’s none other than an apotheosis of our own doing. And summoned to defeat it are those who stand at the pinnacle of all Heroic Spirits.
>Solomon: Yes, the seven Heroic Spirits are heavenly emissaries sent to destroy a certain evil. The seven greatest knights of that era who protect the foundations of humanity. The original seven at the pinnacle of heroic spirits. The invocation ritual of Heroic Spirit summoning was originally magic used in a decisive battle to save the world of humanity. The thing that depreciated it so it could be used at human convenience is your summoning system, the Holy Grail War.
>Mordred: You’re telling me we’re second fiddles to you!?
>Andersen: Don’t let him goad you, Mordred. It’s not a matter of rank. It’s the vessel, the authority that he’s given. He’s nothing more than a Heroic Spirit in a greater vessel than ours. If we’re weapons used against individuals, he’s a weapon used against the world. He’s at the peak of Heroic Spirits having the same attribute. In other words, he’s a Servant with a Grand vessel.
>Solomon: Yes, I must commend you for arriving at the truth! I am indeed the king of kings, the Caster of Caster! Thus I grant you the right to hail me as Grand Caster, Solomon the King of Magic!
Grands have cooler containers that's it
They use Western magic, but I don't know if it's German.
You might be thinking about the implications that Nagato let Zelretch shack up with his daughter to repay him for the tools and knowledge he gained.
Also, why are Sakura's arias in German when she was plugged up to magic by decayed Russians?
Prototype Gilgamesh >>> Gilgamesh
He can deal with Shirou sword spam. The problem is that true NP are most likely harder to "kill" than traced ones. On the other hand if Gil is in lol mongrel mode Shiki might surprise him
Nanaya Shiki is stronger than Ryougi Shiki in physical capabilities.
3rd personality as Nasu refers to it (Shiki after losing SHIKI) has better eyes.
Void Shiki on the other hand is Akasha so there's really no point in mentioning her on vs.
>Harder to kill
There's no such thing. If it can be killed then it dies, just like Arcueid.
Overcharge only happens in Tsukihime because Shiki had this weird shit going on where SHIKI had like half his life or something, he also had recently started using his eyes and used them on Arcueid so that fucked him up badly overall.
While Nanaya is stronger than Ryougi peopl tend to underestimate her when she's using a sword. Nasu compared Sword shiki with dagger Shiki using this scene in terms of speed and power.
Honestly that's not a good showing of power considering those are all normal human speed enemies with more strenght than usual, those shitters are slow as fuck.
I'm not saying she's bad in physical capabilities, just saying the guy speedblitzing Nero is better.
3rd persona is Void. Nasu used「両儀式」for both "defensive fight agains Servant" and "second strongest TM chara after Arc". I think he mean her reality warping powers are second after Arc but her fighting power is Ciel tier
But that's because Ryougi is overall better with a sword. It's like putting Medusa riding granny bike and a racing bike.
The sword doesn't really amp her physical capabilities.
I'm talking merely about physical capabilities here and the Nanaya are monsters.
I don't even read OPM you faggot, I was referring to the fact that it's always a Demonbane or Saitama argument that turns a thread like this into pure powerlevel wanking and speculative headcanon bullshit.
>The sword doesn't really amp her physical capabilities.
They explicitly state that it does just that in 5 though, just having a sword boosts her through self suggestion. Watch/read her fight final fight with Araya
>Who can realistically (and canonically) defeat Gilgamesh at full power?
Are Grand Servants the original ones or something like that? By the soundof it seems the ones summoned in the HGW were cheap imitations with the exception of Saber (though she's greatly nerfed by the rules).
>That's called being stupid
The analogy made sense though.
If you knew that a group of ants was plotting against you, even if you were intelligent, would you consider it threatening enough to actually do something else than lazily step on them?
Obviously you wouldn't actually dedicate yourself to eradicating the ants, that would be ridiculous.
Strong enough to destroy the world a few times over apparently, can see all of the future and past all the time, controls the future and past by summoning shit into those periods, million excaliburs, ability to always perceive the correct path to win down to the last details, has two more NPs, and can control 72 demon gods that are each beyond any one servant on their own.
Only a group of servants can fight one.
People want to damage control and meme lately "No, its literally just the container, if he didn't have that container anyone could beat him, he's shit".
However the reason he had that container in the first place, is because he's directly stated to be the strongest Caster in existence, the king of all magic. In a normal container he'd be somewhat more gimped, but he'd still be damn well the strongest basically. Grand Servants are the seven strongest servants, the strongest from each class, the original servants of myth.
The fact that he's one of the few servants that can effectively use a grand container, since a normal container would gimp him way too much, shows how overpowering he is as a servant. He needs basically a container with ten times the normal capacity to be able to show what he's capable of, and really stretch out a bit. With someone like Andersen, a grand container would be nothing but a waste, since a normal servant container already maxes him out.
Seems that difference allows them to realize their abilities to their full potential or some shit. For example Solomon summoned in the HGW would have a shitton of limitations on those awesome powers of his.
Once upon a time, the root summoned seven servants to save the world, they were the strongest servants of each class, and they did save it. They fought some world ending outside threat.
The HGW is an imitation of that ritual in a sense.
Anyone might be able to fit into the same sort of Grand Container, but the original seven were noted to be the strongest.
They're the ones at the apex of their classes. We know that they have a far better container than the normal ones, but we don't know if all servants can be put into grand container, maybe with the grail you collect in Grand Order, or if they are specifically for only one heroic spirit, like only Solomon can be Grand Caster, only Seibah can be Grand Saber and so one
Yes. It's a bigger container, which lets them have more of the Heroic Spirit.
We know that Cu, for example, has a lot more NPs than the Gay Bulge. If he was summoned into a Grand Lancer container, he'd probably have all of them. Fragarach, his castle, etc.
The fluffiness of her tails would destroy Gilgamesh.
This, Sun Wu Kong has no reason to ever participate. He is far beyond any of the others shown, and if he is truly a Buddha like he is at the end of his legend in the Nasuverse then good luck.
Then what about Tamamo?
She is not a heroic spirit, but actually a god and it's clearly stated in F/E that summoning her as a servant, nerfs her so hard that she can't use like 90% of her skills (not including origin form).
Koha Ace war is stated to be the "All Japanese war"
Hitler is there, he created some system outside of the grail system that allows him to summon weakened heroic spirits at a fraction of the cost.
Its noted divine spirits might be summonable under HItler's system within some restrictions.
Its already set up for Wukong to appear eventually here.
Yes Koha Ace war is a real story now, with an actual plot. We have the seven legit servants doing shit at the moment, accidentally running into each other or fighting.
Mass produced heroes are somewhat weaker perhaps, but they still have NP, so they're still dangerous. Only one we've seen so far was Cu, who died already. Also the Fuhrer is outfitting his servants with some special technology armor that drains mana from the land to heal all of their injuries, so they can only be killed by anti-fortress NPs or something.
Plot is much like any grail war story so far, a few chapters in and shit gets crazy.
We have some fun figures appearing at least; Nonobunga, Okita, Izou, Sakamoto, Shuwen, Musashi, etc.
Different situation I'd say; what you're summoning there after all is just a facet of Tamamo anyway, you're summoning one tail that split off from the others. Each of the tails represents a different emotion, self, etc similar to the Alter Egos. Berserker Tamamo represents her purity, Caster Tamamo represents her love for humans and desire to serve others, etc.
All of the tails are separate characters, and the only way they can be counted as full is when they all start merging together again.
For a facet of Tamamo, she's already maxed out by a normal container. She wasn't gimped by the container itself after all, not even a bit, rather she was gimped by the fact that she cut herself into nine in order to be summoned.
You also have to remember, that only all of them fused together, is the true Tamamo; all of them are just pieces.
If Berserker Tamamo was given a better container, she's also already maxed out in a sense, because she's still also just one tail on her own. They aren't gimped by the container but gimped by what they did to be summoned.
Its not that all of the Tamamo's evolve into a new Ameratasu when they level up. Each of the tails is currently a being unto itself entirely, just like the Egos. Each of them is counted individually, and can max out individually for now, but only if they fused together would they count for the thing you're saying perhaps.
Although, CCC already says that Ameratsu still exists on Earth, so even if they fused together, it doesn't really change much, since Ammy is always there outside of time.
Karna's a Lancer (a case can be made for his status as "Launcher" I suppose)
What's his hype about anyway? He's not that powerful. His NP is very good but he's very impractical. Cù could probably defeat him.
Could Gilgamesh defeat a Japanese truck while the driver also is suffering from the Japanese cold?
Akiha got ganked a bit by Assassin, or something.
She's probably fine, she's got a healer on call.
Karna can't be allowed as an archer class. Sure he is eligible for it but then there is the whole deal where He shot arrows that pushed back a chariot that weighed as much as the Universe.
Okay, that's a really nice explanation, but what about her three tailed form then?
If there three tails, then that means she can have even more, but she still have the same vessel. Isn't it like overflowing the cup full of water or something?
She is still getting nerfed as hell.
In the Nasuverse, it was probably more of a conceptual thing, rather than a literal thing. Kind of like Achilles Kosmos, which isn't "actually" as strong as the world, but conceptually it is a world, which is why you can't bypass it unless you have some concept weapon that can say it somehow exceeds the world.
>So apart from Enkidu, who would force him into a draw, who could beat a serious, full-power Gil?
Probably some of the more bullshit Hindus. I'm talking Rama, Ravana or Indrajit here. Could probably draw, at least.
Maybe with enough training, each of her tails can become a new Nine Tails. Since the legend states that if a Kitsune trains for a thousand years, it will have nine tails or whatever.
But they won't each turn into a new Ameratsu at least.
After all they're each still just a facet or fraction; however even a facet can keep leveling itself up, to become whole in a different way. They aren't becoming what they once were at all, rather they're becoming something new all over again.
Its stated in the data books that its stupid to compare heroic spirits to divine spirits to begin with. If its a true level divine spirit, then it can't be a fight, they are just stronger than any heroic spirit.
During a grail war they might be horribly gimped down to the same level, like in Artemis case, but shit like Zeus or Odin are beyond any hero.
This is balanced out by the fact that, true level divine spirits like that are reclusive and aren't going to appear. The only one we have of that level at the moment is Ameratsu, who only appeared because her self on the Mooncell was doing things, and Ammy wanted to take a look.
Its kind of like in Kagetsu, when Shiki meets Archetype Arcuied in her dreams once. Same situation, Hakuno meets Ammy in a dream.
But from lurking these threads I came under the impression that the grail war was just some backwater ritual of little significance and that any of the top magical families in the world could have won it in less than a day...
Think you're mixing up two things here.
>The guys at the clock tower think the HGW is just some dumb ritual, since it's being held in the shithole that is Japan.
>Gil could've won the whole 4th HGW in a day if he was serious.
Servants are still stronger than any human in the current age basically. In order to fight a servant, you need to be a completely strange or miracle type, not a top tier type.
A top tier type gets whipped out in seconds, because all they have to compare is power and abilities, and servants are beyond any human. An oddity like a true magic user, or Kouma works at times, but only up to an average level servant. There's no one who can legit fight top tier servants outside of DAA or other types like that.
Its a lesser cared about backwater ritual, because magus don't care about power-levels, they don't care about any of that shit, all they care about is reaching the root.
The HGW was deemed to not be that apt of a path to reach the root, so its regarded as a lesser branch. Just because powerful things are summoned, don't mean magus somehow care.
What about Kotomine?
He's obviously not going to do shit against one of the three knight classes, but he can defeat a Hassan. At his peak, he was pretty much on the same level as a low-tier Servant in terms of physical skills
People never seem to understand that moment at all.
Kotomine never had a chance, if Hassan had deviated from his normal attack style at all, and just tried to punch Kotomine to death, Kotomine would be dead in seconds. However Kotomine was watching the battle with Lancer, he knew that Hassan was a coward, and exactly how he would attack. He always jut throws darts, and then uses his NP.
Because Kotomine knew his exact strategy, he had a small chance. As long as he could throw daggers just as hard as the darts he could cancel it out, and since Kotomine had no heart, it would create a very small gap in Hassan's attack pattern to hit him when he's using his NP.
Kotomnine did not win, he didn't have have the slightest thing that could kill or beat Hassan, however he did know that since Hassan is careful yet arrogant, he would not dodge the final black key, since Hassan himself knew that it would not kill him, and there would be no point not to dodge since his opponent would already be dead after he ripped out his heart.
All the black key could do, was pin Hassan to a tree for three seconcds, which Hassan didn't find to be a big deal, so he didn't dodge.
However Kotomine in that one gap of a few seconds, knew that was his only chance, automatically targetted Zouken, and tried to chant him to death.
Kotomine in the fourth war, with all of his command seals, at the peak of his life, with all of his abilities can match a low tier servant its stated.
However 5th war Kotomine, it would be no chance if it was an actual fight, the closest he could get is killing the master.
He was only pushing into low Servant tier because of the command seals and sheer tenacity for the fight against Kerry (which would let him potentially pull out a win against Ciel).
Yes, it does, it means the exact same as it meant in F/SN.
In the sense that its a general rating and understanding of their strength, but it was never absolute in the first place, meaning that someone with D rank strength could beat someone with B rank strength by having more skill.
That shit has always been that way, it was more of a general guide, rather than anything absolute.
E = 10x human ability
A = 50x human ability
A+ = 100x human ability
That's basically what it means; however stats were never everything, or even the most important thing perhaps. Stats are just a general ranking, in the sense that if nothing else comes into play, like skills or NP, its obvious how shit might turn out.
Sasaki vs Saber, in terms of power she was far superior, which is why he had to rely on skill
Saber vs Avenger, because his stats were so shit compared to hers, it was a landslide victory almost.
That's really beyond the point.
What I meant is, if Solomon is so powerful he needs a greater container, because the regular one would limit him a lot, then what about Tamamo?
According to what you did say, as a single facet of Amaterasu, she is maxed out in a normal container, but she can evovle and if I remember correctly, each of her tails multiplies her power by nine.
So if we take into account that she can make her way to having nine tails, there is no way she could use all of her power while having a regular servant container.
Does any of that makes any sense?
>According to what you did say, as a single facet of Amaterasu, she is maxed out in a normal container, but she can evovle and if I remember correctly, each of her tails multiplies her power by nine.
>So if we take into account that she can make her way to having nine tails, there is no way she could use all of her power while having a regular servant container.
A normal facet is already maxed out, they don't need a grand container to show more power since for a facet they're already what they are, however they can ascend, in the exact same way that every other servant can ascend in Grand Order, to be able to show more of their power in their current container. Asending is basically evolving already.
Which is why Tamamo develops new tails in G/O, since she ascends.
Ascending does allow them to evolve or express their power in new ways that were impossible before. Saying that "Well she might need a grand container for this power since she can evolve", is the same as saying literally any other character in G/O would need the same, since they can also evolve.
Its possible that they might grand ascend at the end of the story if you have the right item, and have already leveled them up to their limits of their normal ascensions.
At the end of CCC, your servant gets a very situational power up that they can't really get outside of that situation, which allows them to fight BB or Kiara who are beyond any servant.
Although Tamamo Cat makes a joke out of evolving
She doesn't grow more tails, and instead does this.
CCC servants get an origin-boosted form. It's no bullshit or anything, it's just accessing the power of the heroic spirit instead of being nerfed by the class.
That Berserker is weaker than Illya's though.
Also the power up can only be used once, otherwise it'll burn out their soul since its too great of a strain.
You're forcefully upgrading your servant into the realms of mythology and beyond, so they can fight shit that is elder god tier.
Your servant after getting this power up is at the level where they can bend space, time, dimension, etc with a thought. However that's the level they need to be in order to have a chance. Its not really usable outside of that situation so much though.
>Even though you were flung to the edge of the galaxy......!

>Of course, I came flying faster than light!

Forgot pic, damn.
Anyone knows what does this armor/mystic code does?
>It's no bullshit or anything, it's just accessing the power of the heroic spirit instead of being nerfed by the class.
How does this work in the context of Gilgamesh? As I recall, in CCC isn't he supposed to actually just "be Gilgamesh"? He doesn't have a class besides "Gilgamesh" and he was hanging out on the Far Side or whatever, then chose to enter the Moon Cell when whoever the other Servant was abandoned the master.
>Thinking that servants can "travel faster than light, reverse time and space across a galaxy, turn the distance from a galaxy into zero, stop time, etc" if they just weren't nerfed by class.
Don't be retarded, they're not not being restricted by class there, rather they're being pushed far past their limits and being infused with the origin of creation on Earth there.
Even EMIYA travels faster than light and does shit far beyond what he can do there; its not that they're just not being restricted by class.
However the power up is entirely explained, and its not bullshit because its entirely situational, and its only possible because they reverse engineered the ten crowns that BB gave them.
I thought it was just their original power being unlocked.
Yeah but what are the powers of the Iron Man suit. Defense? Something else?
Can we have this in GO please
>Yeah but what are the powers of the Iron Man suit. Defense? Something else?
Mythological Code of Wrought Iron
Gilgamesh's is Mythological Code of Origin
Tamamo's is Mythological Code of Sun
Each of them has a different truth
You could say that their origin forms are their greatest or most apt forms, the greatest forms for expressing their power. This is the form of their soul, or something like that.
Damned was this multiverse when this atrocity was realized.
>Why are his stats so low when compared to Gilgamesh from other routes?
Everyone was basically balanced as fuck in the original Prototype scripts.
Instead of servants just having A rank in everything, everyone was balanced.
If some servant had very low stats like Rider, it was balanced by him having a lot of NPs. It was only with F/SN that balance went out the window, but in Proto you could see everyone as having a chance.
ORT is DAA #5
It got the position after it accidentally killed the previous #5, without trying.
If you kill the previous guy, and you're inhuman, then you're in.
Even if you don't really want the job, you're still admitted to their ranks at times.
Zelretch is also a DAA, but not because he particularly wanted to be, or cared bout it.
A third of DAA are basically random types, who don't care about the organization at all, and perhaps hate vampires or just plain don't give a fuck. They're more likely to side with humans at times.
People had different specialties. For instance, even though Archer has the lowest overall stats in F/SN, his skill and magic allows him to keep up with everyone else. This allows him to kill the stat monster Heracles six times before being killed. Then there are people like Sasaki Kojirou who very well may have beaten Saber under Rin if he had the time, but essentially crippled himself by blocking once so that Saber could pass, and because he was quickly fading away.
Essentially, stats don't mean everything in F/SN, though they're still very important. See: Saber Alter vs. Shirou, or as previously mentioned, Archer vs. Berserker.
You mean servant or anyone?
As of now, none of them. Grand Servant not count, not enough info.
>Other character in type-moon
It's a long list and you can lurk it yourself.
That was such a shitty, cliché resolution to the fight.
>Ruby and Saphire, combine!
>Oh no, it's physically damaging for Illya to be like that!
Quite possibly the most boring way to power through a final boss in the series so far. It really has been on a huge decline since season 1.
Don't worry, it all goes back to have Shirou as the MC anyways.
That's always good, but based on the spoilers from here >>136208453 it sounds like the plot turns into some seriously convuluted shit. Oh well, guess I'll watch it for the characters, if the anime ever gets that far.
that's why gil is such an entertaining charcter he is the consumate villain, so much more so than any other i've seen in fiction
this nigga has been torturing, killing and slaughtering since it was necessary to curb barbarism (don't shit on me we in post-scarcity now senpai)
It is still canon and to be fair it was not that bad compared to most shounens final big bad guys fight.
Only thing that bother me is how illya faced appearently no consequences forever using her body as cannon fuel but we can't except to show brutal violence on 11 year old girls on TV, can we now?
Niiice, can't believe it takes so long for this stuff to get TL'd in a fanbase as large as TM. Is Narita even doing this anymore? It's been so fucking long since that first batch of chapters.
Saber + Avalon or Lancer using GB.
Heracles had to protect Illya from GoB and fighting Gil at the same time, he had a really big handicap to begin with.
But yes, Cu is a beast, I think he would have a really high chance to win the war if he still had Bazett as a Master.
>People want to damage control and meme lately "No, its literally just the container, if he didn't have that container anyone could beat him, he's shit".
This was a result of the shitty Beast's Lair mistranslations and is the complete opposite of what is said in the game. "Container" is bullshit, the word used is 霊各 = "spirit level". The entire explanation by Andersen and Solomon was basically that servants could never stand a chance against grand servants because they're on a completely different level that can't be compared.
There are no fucking containers.
The word 器/vessel on the other hand IS used but the context is the same; Grand servants are so powerful that they can't be regular servants (retards argued this in a previous thread too; It turns out, once again, that this was thanks to mistranslations from the retards on Beast's Lair who managed to translate things to the EXACT OPPOSITE) and become one of the seven grands.
Because world is full of assholes anon and homunuli or familliars like puppets are practically 'magical niggers' of type-moon, property of magus', besides Gil is the one who thinks that all except Enkidu are below him so do you think that he would care for some random submongrel and her feels?
Is he really that strong? Seems strange to me since all he has going for him is an OHK which never works when he uses it against important characters. Compare that with Karna, Enkidu, Vlad and others
>he has a really big handicap
Sure but Gil did acknowledge his strength, which is impressive. Would the fight have gone another way if he didn't have to protect her? Gil would've just spammed GOB at Heracles himself instead of aiming at Illya. And as it was shown, Heracles can't rival swordspam even if he's extremely strong.
No one knows anything about Archr Hec. No one knows anything about any Type-Moon Herc besides Berserker. He can't be used in serious power-level discussion when we don't know anything about him.
There's no basis for that. We have no idea if Herc would even be THAT much better as an Archer. No one knows who Grand Archer will be, but I doubt Herc would be a better Archer than Gilgamesh.
All Servants have an Alignment (属性), a status showing a clear representation of the mentality of the Servant, differing from the elemental alignment of magi. It is broken down into two parts, a combination of the principles they consider important and their personality. Principles are reflected as Chaotic (混沌／渾沌), Lawful (秩序), and Neutral (中立, called "True"), and their personalities are reflected as Good (善), Evil (悪), and Neutral (中庸). Berserker Servants have also displayed Insane (狂化) as a "principle", and Mad (狂) and Reckless (暴走) as their "personalities." Differences in personality will not result in major discord, but differing principles can make Servants resolving their differences of opinions difficult. While two Servants may have the same personalities as "good", like King Arthur and Gilgamesh, their Lawful and Chaotic principles lead to differing opinions.
>His alignment is Chaotic Good.
>A cold-blooded tyrant, and a hero who had sought and enjoyed all manners of treasures and pleasures.
>Though capricious and temperamental, he does not (generally) kill someone simply because he is in a foul temper.
>When he kills a person, it is either because that someone’s soul is abominable, or because that person has become an enemy of his.
>King and sentencer who weighs both good and evil equally.
>To him, a life is only “that which will die this moment” or “that which will one day die.”
>A being who is recognized by Gilgamesh as “a life that must die this moment” will be slain, even if a sage.
>“So in the end it has nothing to do with rules or conditions and just depends on what he feels like that day?!”
>This kind of reaction is understandable, but that is what a king is.
>Whether astute judgment synonymous to the truth of the universe,
>or misrule during a drunken stupor,
>if he is the one to implement it, it would become the indisputable adjudication of the king.
>Such is the absolute sovereign.
>Though some see him as similar to Iskandar in their egocentricity, the greatest difference between the two is that Gilgamesh has no need of vassals.
>Gilgamesh is a king who, from start to end, reigns by means of only “himself.” What he loves are “treasures” and “tools,” while a “person” is no more than that which must one day perish.
>……No matter how worthy of love he may acknowledge that to be.
>makes sense to him, but aren't what normal people would expect
Sure, but some of these alignments (those I mentioned and a few others) are objectively nonsensical, does Nasu explain his choices in an interview or something?
Yeah I know what an alignment is.
>Lawful and Chaotic
That's not even how it works, Chaotic shows a general disdain for laws, principles and authority. Doesn't justify Gilgamesh acting like he does which is more akin to Chaotic Neutral
>That's not even how it works
This isn't D&D. Nasu has his own rules for his own universe and characters, and that's all there is to it. You can't just say "that's not how it works" when the creator says otherwise.
>When he kills a person, it is either because that someone’s soul is abominable, or because that person has become an enemy of his.
But this has been repeatedly shown to be bullshit. He kills people if they dare look at him in a way that he doesn't like.
>To him, a life is only “that which will die this moment” or “that which will one day die.”
>Such is the absolute sovereign
That's Neutral behavior, not Good.
Oh, so his alignment system itself doesn't make sense. I guess that makes it easier.
isn't "Gilgamesh is the strongest" also a meme? Basically the oldest meme, really. (I mean it's there in his legend)
But at the same time, isn't one of the big things that also fucks Gilgamesh up the simple fact that the entire point of his story and character is that no matter what he does he'll ALWAYS fall short of his own ideals of victory?
>Story begins, he's bored out of his mind and finds no challenges
>Middle of the story: his victories are soured because Enkidu is no longer by his side to enjoy them
>End of the story: SO FUCKING CLOSE TO IMMORTALITY but, oh, a snake ate it.
Then again, the permeation of tragedy in a majority of mythological figures doesn't seem to stop them from being badasses in Nasu-verse.
Nevermind the awful, butchered thing Nasu calls his own Epic of Gilgamesh.
Arch-type Earth and the types are probably the only one that has a chance if he wasn't being an arrogant cunt(aka plot armor) and just fought seriously.
Void Shiki will always have a chance because she's linked with ashaka, but it's like 0.0001%.
And anyone over 7.5
>EMIYA could defeat him since his power specifically counters Gilgamesh's.
Nah. EMIYA would put up a good fight, but a serious Gil would be max spamming swords from the start summon his flying ship defending with his chain of heaven and finishing EMIYA off from the skies above with EA.
>Saber+Avalon lead to a stealmate
It won't it would lead to Saber losing.
Avalon isn't infinite activation.
Serious Gil wouldn't give her the chance to hit him.
Yeah, see, this is what bugs me the most about Nasu's writing. The proper series seems to go on the idea that "Gilgamesh, for all his power and glory will always fall short of his heart's desire"... and then Nasu says "no... He just lost."
But this is just me. Either way, cool as Gil is, I don't get why people get so anal that anyone else in the Nasuverse could be stronger.
I mean it's like Pokemon G-1ers up in arms that Mewtwo was replaced by furrybait.
Its not a potion of immortality, that's a misnomer created by people who mishear what happened in CCC.
After seeing the snake eat his shit, and molting, he realized this is not the immortality he sought, and his entire journey was just a gigantic waste, and his pride was in shambles. However in that moment he learned the lesson he needed to learn, that he was arrogant, and what it meant to be a good king.
The plant did not grant immortality, it just granted him temporary youth.
The snake sheds its skin, and is renewed, but ultimately its not immortal at all. Even before trying to get the herb under water, he already knew this might not be the immortality he sought, after seeing what state the hermit was in.
However he was desperate, so he was trying everything in that moment. It was only after his long journey was thought to be over, that he took a small break to bath, and he was excited.
In that moment he felt alive, he felt great, his people would forever remember him as a good ruler, he could do them good, he realized that it wasn't the plant that he needed, and blah blah.
He came out of the shower to find that his herb was taken, and all he could do is laugh about his own foolishness. Yet in that moment he was finally complete.
He went back to get another herb, but he still knew it wasn't an immortality potion, and that it would basically not do him any good here. He just got another one for the sake of having it, since he was a collector.
Also we've known he's had that shit since Ataraxia
Random Japanese website that didn't matter
At first we just laughed at the nips for having shit taste like usual, but after people realized they could use this to troll and call everyone they hated to be shit, it really took off.
Thus a meme was born
Kind of like when the 10th anniversary poll was released.
Pulls out some unfair item from his vault that instantly protects against it. That's literally how Gilgamesh works, he has all the shit.
Someone asked Nasu how Gilgamesh could beat Sasaki, and Nasu said Gilgamesh can pull out some item that protects against attacks from across dimensions, and win even up close.
His vault is deus ex vault, there's no limit to the shit he doesn't have perhaps.
True Rho Aias.
Because Luck negates, and it's indicative of it's authority or something along those lines. Basically in a contest between two opposing forces, the one with the higher authority wins.
Because Nasu hates Irish people.
But how could he block it or blow it away since Gae Bolg's gimmick is that it reverses causality to pierce the opponent before it strikes?
His luck would allow him to get a lighter wound like Saber did, but he'd still get hit.
Just how like Archer blocked it, by having defence with the concept of blocking all projectiles. He took damage from the shield breaking, not Gae Bolg. The last petal stopped the spear.
Thrown Gae Bolg is just so numerous that it cannot be dodged. It lacks a specific causality reversal. Stabbing Gae Bolg is what you're thinking of. In that case, he just pulls out an anti-causality reversal NP, because that makes as much sense as an anti-dimensional refraction NP.
Gilgamesh is pretty much guaranteed to have something that can also reverse causality in his treasury, so it's a fairly moot point. He wouldn't let Cu get in range to use the stab version anyways, or if he did, he'd just do it as a trick to wrap him up with Enkidu instead.
No, Rho Aias failed to completely block the spear, that's why Archer took damage. Archer even says so himself: "A spear that defeated the shield that even Gungnir could not defeat" or something to that effect.
So a conceptual weapon? How does one determine who wins when both weapons have powers that relate to concepts and causality though? Given how it's described, GB should always hit regardless of the shield, isn't it pretty much the spear version of the "unstoppable force"?
>Stabbing Gae Bolg is what you're thinking of
Right, so thrown GB is anti-army but possible to stop, while stabbing GB is anti-individual but technically unstoppable?
As I recall though, Lancer always threw it in the UBW route.
Damn, GoB really is a win button
Zelretch taught Nagato how to put magic into gems and gave him the blueprints of his sword as homework, nothing more.
Nagato later on asked Zelretch to help him out with the Holy Grail thing.
They have no connection otherwise.
People also like to fanon that Zel probably boned Nagato's daughter, with him being referred to as their ancestor in a chant and that thing about Rin being better recovered underground in comparison to vampires or something.
Do Solomon's rings give him access to True Magic? Or does he only get discount fragments of True Magic?
I know he has time travel which is supposed to be part of the Second, but does he get the full thing?
I suppose so. I know the tiger has EX luck, as well as Francis Drake, Solomon and a few others, but does that manifest as the ability to just get out of any situation? Isn't that broken as shit?
Francis Drake didn't seem to be able to make that luck work then, because she had a pretty shitty death.
>a horrible situation
Having Shinji as a master? Why doesn't it manifest?
>implying that Ainz doesn't have THE GOAL OF ALL LIFE IS DEATH, a special capstone ability from his Eclipse class whose relevant feature is that when used to enhance an instant death spell that spell will never fail and cannot be resisted at all by anything even if the target has no concept of 'death'.
Ainz isn't just a wizard who is literally as powerful as a wizard from his world can be, he's an embodiment of necromancy itself.
Yes, but also it was just a random Japanese websites ratings, based on how good they were for farming materials basically. The list had no real meaning for /fgog/ other than shitting on the characters you didn't like by going "Haha, your guy is less than my guy" and other memes.
Its not rating them based on their actual lore power, but rather their usage in the game, how fast they gather stars, how quickly they can use NP, etc.
He's the origin of all humans using magic basically, he created magecraft.
Which is why he's the King of Magic.
Before him, only those who swore an oath to some divine spirit, were allowed to use magic. He made it accessible to everyone, after he used his abilities to look into the future once, and realized he needed to do this.
Yeah the only problem with that is it takes twelve seconds to take effect. And Gil can just kill him in a few seconds then leave the place before the spell takes effect.
Then there's Rho Aias and Avalon which Im pretty sure he has.
Listen, Gate of Babylon is a Deus Ex Machina dispenser. Just like this guy >>136224039 said, Gil will always have a counter. That's his entire thing. It's pretty much his only thing. Gil will have a counter to anything Ainz can come up with, no exceptions.
Shalltear had one because Peroronchino built her to be the most annoying raid boss ever and probably had Ainz's abilities in mind when he was designing her, there's no indication that they were at all common given that AOG collected all kinds of rare shit and had a heavy arsenal for the size of their guild.
For Gilgamesh to have an auto-revive item, you must find one in human mythology, because human myth is what determines the things he has in his vault. Besides, if he had one of those he would have used it on the other occasions where he died in the VN. Since he didn't, odds are he either doesn't have one or is too proud to use it.
So yes, I'm implying exactly that.
Drake's death really ain't that shitty, and she wasn't unhappy about anything. Your luck stat doesn't factor in before you're summoned, so it doesn't change who you're summoned by.
She got a lousy master who couldn't manifest her abilities at all, and she couldn't get excited about who she was fighting, so her miracle ability couldn't activate so much, but still she wasn't really unhappy or unlucky with how it turned out in a sense. She quite liked her master in an odd way.
She just lost, it was simple, but there were no regrets.
Luck is the measure of overcoming fate in Type Moon; due to her ability that makes miracles possible, and her overcoming the impossible fleet in life, of course her luck is quite high, as she made it a feat in life to overcome fate repeatedly.
This is the reason her luck is high.
However, its no absolute ability in itself, which is why two E rank luck servants won in different routes in F/SN.
Luck is the ability to overcome an absolute fate, and create impossible results.
>>For Gilgamesh to have an auto-revive item, you must find one in human mythology, because human myth is what determines the things he has in his vault. Besides, if he had one of those he would have used it on the other occasions where he died in the VN. Since he didn't, odds are he either doesn't have one or is too proud to use it.
Cu uses an auto revive rune in Extra, and Nero also has an ability like this.
Gilgamesh directly states in CCC that if a technique exists, then an NP that corresponds to that ability or that can do the same thing, surely exists.
Its directly confirmed therefore that he does have an auto-revive item, but he never uses it so far at least.
He has all the shit, asking him to always use the shit though is crazy, because he has more shit than even he remembers most of the time.
>Gil can just kill him in a few seconds
Yeah right. When has Gilgamesh ever ended a fight quickly? Not to mention Ainz' teleporting abilities and flight. He can cast it and then just leave, or stand behind an endless wall of summons like old Bluebeard did. Ainz lasted a lot longer than twelve seconds against his hardcounter, Gil got his arm severed by his.
He's never used either, not even when it would be tactically beneficial, I'm not sure why you think he'd start now or that either would stop a voodoo heartgrab or Wail of the Banshee type spell.
The only fight where he's ever been serious is against Enkidu in F/SF.
He always fuck around. For example he brought out Vimana against Lancelot but didn't even bother to use its full power, he just threw swords at the guy while flying. If he took his fights seriously, there wouldn't be a story
Why are Gilfags so determined to say no one can defeat him outside of Full powered Arcueid and the higher lever beings in the Nasuverse?
Are they really threatened that a servant may be strong enough to take him out especially with the introduction of Grand Servants?
>ORIGIN GIL CAN BEAT GRAND SERVANTS
>GIL IS GOING TO BE GRAND ARCHER
He didn't human Master's seriously, and he underestimated Sakura, even if he already knew what she was. It all comes down to if he can take Ainz seriously enough. If he does, GG, Ainz is dead. If he doesn't, Gil dies. In a match of pure ability, he'll always come out on top, but because of his personality, it's never that simple.
>and he underestimated Sakura, even if he already knew what she was.
This is what it comes down to. Gil underestimates everyone, so any halfway powerful character Gil wouldn't recognize as a hero can take him out. Ainz, Saitama, Goku, Accelerator, all of them stand a tier above Gilgamesh because they lack his particular breed of heroic retardation.
He was serious in CCC a few times
During the final battle he declared at the start for his master to use his chains, his sword, and all of his powers without holding back, since this women was a worthy target.
>Someone asked Nasu how Gilgamesh could beat Sasaki, and Nasu said Gilgamesh can pull out some item that protects against attacks from across dimensions, and win even up close.
No, he said that as a joke.
>Eh but maybe Gil can pull out some anti something shield and win
No, its directly stated that the limit of reproduction for UBW is "Only close range items, no divine items, no demonic items, etc".
He can only replicate close range bladed items, like swords and spears basically.
Gil speedblitzes. Touma couldn't possibly keep up with a servant.
Look at the fight against Acqua, didn't go that well did it?
Acqua (and Saints in general) are pretty much on a level similar to Servants in terms of physical capabilities. Touma gets curbstomped
Not really. Even if Gilgamesh is deadly serious, Ainz can hold out for at least twelve seconds, being one of the tankiest mages ever to exist in anime and having the ability to temporarily turn himself into a Saber-level fighter.
>Right, so thrown GB is anti-army but possible to stop
You can't stop it either, well unless you have something like Rho Aias that works as a conceptual shield against projectiles.
>Look at the fight against Acqua, didn't go that well did it?
>Acqua (and Saints in general) are pretty much on a level similar to Servants in terms of physical capabilities.
Acqua is way stronger than any servant retarded fatefag. He's literally Arcueid, except I think his shit works even better
>meanwhile Arc has a shot of winning in her 30% form.
People never seem to understand this; the entry said that Arc with all abilities functioning correctly has a very slim chance.
Which means Ultimate One is also functioning, and Ammy is also brought down to 1/6th ability.
Arc is bringing herself up in tiers of power to be able to stand a chance, is the reason she stands a small chance. Its never just 30% Arcuied when she's fighting someone stronger than herself, she rises in power accordingly, up until 100%.
Its noted there's some things in the Mooncell however that Ultimate One cannot surpass.
That's not how it works. Gilgamesh after going past his limits as a heroic spirit still doesn't have a shoty against ammy.
Arcueid while being only 30% has a shot.
It's a simple fact that Gilgamesh is not that strong.
And he can only beat 30% Arc by the way.
>implying he'd recognize Ainz as a MMO player and not just think some weird mage was bothering him and try to dispose of him with minimum-effort attacks like individual thrown weapons.
>Its never just 30% Arcuied when she's fighting someone stronger than herself, she rises in power accordingly, up until 100%.
That's not how it works, there's a reason Nasu refers to her as 30% even when taking UO into account.
You seriously think Touma could get close enough? Did you even read the Acqua fight? It's the same thing here.
Even if Gil just stood there like he always does, Touma can't block dozens of spears at such a speed, idiot. Shirou couldn't do it before tracing the weapons, so Touma can't.
>inb4 muh precog
People already said who can win against him.
Types, Arcueid, PM, Dark six.
Touma's precog let him react to Index's laser which was Lightspeed(not an hyperbole, it literally destroys the satellite in orbit in like a second)
Serious Gil still uses his three main attacks; GoB spam, Enkidu chain, and Ea. He's never really pulled out something unusual and different in any of the material I've seen except as a gag, like the fishing pole in HA and the wine in FZ.
Ainz Ooal Gown. He's got that irresistable instakill ability and is smart enough to survive for twelve seconds, which even Iskandar and Cu managed.
He can also freeze time and just leave, which is True Magic in Fateverse.
>attack takes 55 seconds
>Papa Bones can kill him in twelve
He needs to touch them not dodge them.
Also touma can rip his arm off with something, he knows what happens when you cut IB.
When he's serious, he pulls out specific items, targets weaknesses, and uses them effectively enough, since even Enkidu mentioned he does remember how some things work.
During CCC he pulls out the Axe of the Road, Ancient machine gun, opens up GoB below and on both sides of people instantly, along with a few other specific items that he relies on like Enki.
He's not limited to just two things, there are a few other items that he knows decently enough when pushed, and he's very good at gauging weakness and pulling out the appropriate items when serious.
He has five or six main weapons he likes to use in CCC. In CCC he almost decently enough remembers what's in his vault at times; he threatens Gawain with the Curtain of night, he tells Hakuno that he has a spice that will allow him to eat Elizabeth's cooking, etc.
People don't understand serious Gilgamesh, because they assume serious means that he just nukes everything with Ea. However serious really means, that he uses the most effective measures he has to win, like pulling out a heroes specific weakness. CCC says that he's an expert at guaging peoples weaknesses and strengths, and can usuaully figure something good to pull out in most situations.
However there are some times when he's not sure what to pull out; since in CCC he wasn't sure what the prototype for Karna's weapon was, since there was no record of it being used in Karna's epic. Therefore since Gil didn't know how it worked, it wasn't sure how to counter it, or what the original model for it was, since apparently in Nasuverse, Karna's weapon was never used before.
The first time he took damage in his new body he laughed about it. In the LN he's craving the chance to meet someone near his level who doesn't work for him. Also liches don't shit.
>Even if he sees 20 swords coming his way, his body can't dodge them all.
Except Touma dealt with a rain of magic swords in his own canon. That he's able to do that is kind of BS in my opinion, but hey, confirmed feats are confirmed feats.
God of Rape recognizes Gilgamesh as his father and they embrace while crying.
Gilgamesh loses to the power of family.
So he wouldn't really have a counter for abilities and spells outside the record of Nasuverse's heroes then, would he?
>mfw Ainz won this entire thread.
>mfw even the Gilfags gave up.
Doesn't mean it's the same as Nasuverse.
This is why fatefags are dumb, just because some Excalibur exists in Nasuverse doesn't mean it's the same Excalibur to other fictions.
Just because in Nasuverse something happened or something works in some way doesn't mean it has shit to do with other verses
FZ's necronomicon summons a lot of little tentacle monsters or one huge one. Ainz's Lovecraft reference spell Ia Shug-Niggurath destroys entire armies with a handful of cosmic horrors each the size of the one Bluebeard made.
This is now a thread about who can beat Ainz Ooal Gown if he's serious.
Proof that Nasu cannot into alignments.
Serial killers often care about their own family members and sometimes even friends but that doesn't make them chaotic good in the traditional sense.
And then when Rin married Luvia the balance was restored.
That was a joke, but I hear they're together in that fuckawful Prisma Illya crapshow. If that's true, I'm not sure if I'm going to fap, vomit, or laugh myself sick. Being a Sakurafag, I know that Shirou deserves better than Rin...but honestly, so does Luvia!
Of course. Thy name is Solomon, the boss of Grand Order. His dad has a NP that NTRs other people's Nps and he can use them (not like Lancelot, but really become his owner) and one instant-kill one.
BB, Kingprotea, those guys can also give Gilgamesh hell. Arturia with Ron and Avalon too (basically Grand Saber?), and Excalibur on unlocked mode. PROTO Arthur is pretty bullshit too, his Excalibur.
Sakura has always gotten power ups: See CCC, where her clones are main heroines. KingProtea is potentially the most powerful being Nasu has yet to introduce among 'Servants'. She's Galaxy buster tier on bullshit scale, and she's a Sakura clone.
>With her Origin Form, she becomes capable of feats like moving faster than light and the reversal of time. She can reduce the distance from the Horsehead Nebula back to the original galaxy to zero to instantly cross the distance.
All Origin forms can do this bullshit. She'll fall because of Gil's anti Divine arsenal.
Were you not keep up with Grand Order? Zouken destroyed the Clock Tower with that "ritual of little significance" in London chapter. KILLED EVERYBODY and none of the Servants in his War suffered any losses against them.
Gil is an overconfident bitch.
If he was going to go HAM at anyone he fought, it's very likely that few, if anyone in the Nasuverse outside of the obvious outliers like Zelretch, Aoko, etc could beat him in a straight up fight.
But Gil never goes HAM. He assumes his opponents are weaker and he practically considers it a personal failing to have to draw Ea in a fight. He goes easy on everyone he fights, right up until he's actually threatened.
Gil's a bitch, and his personality ensures he'd get jobbed by anyone in the area of his strength-tier.
The problem with Gil is he doesn't get serious until it's too late, and he never gets serious.
Anon, true magic is simply a fragment of the Root. Solomon is linked to the Root and sees everything. He brought himself back to the death, travels in time, etc. What the fuck do you think? He's the FOUNDER of the magi.
Manaka and Merlin are the same (born with a connection to the Root). Manaka became an apathetic bitch devoid of stimulus because of this. Merlin also became a NEET who just messes around. Merlin's eyes seem to be the highest though.
When will people stop wanking ron? It's in no way superior to excalibur, heck its not even suppose to be used as a weapon. Whether saber has ron or not vs gilgamesh wont change anything.
Vote for Tohsaka's Anus, Sakurafish, and your other favorite players to represent /a/ in the Winter Cup:
Easy. Arturia, unlike the memefags who believe she's a 'real Servant' right now, was never a real Servant. She made a deal with Alaya TO BECOME ONE.
She's not officially in the story as a Heroic Spirit even if waifufags deny it because mu-much interlude and gacha which is not quite canon or official, just lipservice for fans.
She hasn't appeared in the story except as a Darkened Servant (which is presumably still her 'contracted with Alaya' self). You might ask yourself why did she even have to contract Alaya to become a Servant. That's kind of a plot hole, if she knew it could happen after her death, why did she do it?
Nasu is gonna use that loophole.
No way. According to Nasu, Third Personality Rougi can only fight defensively against the average Servants. Only with a Mooncell boost she can do shit.
Key word is average, not Arturia, Karna, Gil, Enkidu, etc. More like Mozart.
Anon, I have bad news for you.
The fight could have gone another way without Illya, yes. But it probably wouldn't, in the end. He might have better chances again with the Archer class, but Gil would still probably come out on top.
That said, Gil was pretty fucking scared for a moment when Herc broke out of Enkidu, because a demigod high in Divinity as he is should definitely not be able to do that.
Gil wouldn't have Avalon, as it's a Divine construct.
He probably has Rho Aias, though. Or, rather, he has whatever the Aias was based on. Achilles had his Neos Kosmos shield, Ajax has Rho Aias, there's probably a bunch of shields in there. He showed off that divinity-shield thing in Prisma, for example.
"Gil has (almost) all the NPs because he's the original hero" /= "Gil has all the human treasures." You're combining two separate thoughts. If he doesn't have a NP, it's for some special reason like Karna's spear or it's a NP like God Hand that embodies the legend of the hero.
Ryougi,Ainz too arrogant. He gets sliced
>Roman himself stated s
Taking what Roman said in a literal way goes against what Solomo and Andersen stated, not to mention he was asking a question. Akasha doesn't have a counterforce, there is nothing suggesting it's sentient like Alaya and Gaia and it also has no reason to protect humanity if it did.
