Simple little game in mind. If the Heroic Spirits of the Fate Series were video game characters, who do you see as each class? For each selection, take into account the servant class and pick a video game character that closely resembles each class. And if you have any words to back up your selection, and / or a prediction as to who would win in your selection, please share them. With that said, I'll go first.

Berserker - Kratos (God of War Series)


Rider - War (Darksiders Series)


Assassin - Ezio Auditore da Firenze (Assassin's Creed 2, AC Brotherhood & AC Revelations)


Archer - Bayonetta (Bayonetta Series)


Saber - Dante (Devil May Cry Series "classic version")


Lancer - Killik (Soul Calibur Series)


Caster - Morrigan (Dragon Age Series)



Notes - Yeah, Berserker & Assassin should be painfully obvious. There were three that were pretty suited for other classes, them being Bayonetta & Dante,

The ones besides the obvious which I had no problem placing was War from Darksiders & Killik from Soul Calibur. I would've chose Talim instead of Killik, since she's a agile & speedy character, but she has tonfas for weapons, which doesn't match the class.

As for Morrigan, she was an awesome character in DA, and I can't wait to see what her further contributions to the game series will be, but I did have a hard time decided if it was her or Bayonetta in the Caster slot. It took a lot though, but as a character who couldn't stand out in a one-on-one fight, she does have resources, even some that she doesn't expect, to carry out what needs to be done, that including the murder of her mother, Flemeth(or so she thinks), and getting impregnated with a child bearing darkspawn tainted blood ready to receive an Archdemon's Soul(Provided the if you made the choice to get laid or use Alistair) from the Grey Warden in DA:O. She always has some ulterior motive in mind, and that's why I picked her for Caster out of other would-be characters to fit that class.

As for my prediction over who would win, I think it's a tossup between War & Kratos. I really have no clear cut info, but Kratos & War are similar. They both have similar abilities based on the weapons they use. Personality-wise they're different. War has a sense of honor while Kratos is a loose-cannon, often not taking betrayal very well(as illustrated in the GoW series). The other characters would have to really strategize & band together just to take one of them down, but my money would be on War or Kratos in this matter.

Eeeh. Always awkwardly hard of a thought.

I mean, the archer class is already subject to bullshit in universe, adding Guns always complicated things! They got to be old school heroes man. Ezio, War, Kratos, and perhaps Morrigan work solid, bit the current folk of Dante and Bayonettta. Regardless of epicness of their combat systems, don't fit the theme.

I believe Kratos should be the GoW 1 level, the naked crazy man with weapons and the slicing and such. Morrigan at the top of her game during the witch hunt dlc, and I hate Killik ..he doesn't even use a lance.

Hilde uses a lance, why not the more interesting character in Soul Calibur. Instead of trollpole man with his band of don't give a fuck?


You souls totally make Jack of Blades the Saber class....just because. Jack of Blade and his Sword of Aeons don't even care.

I definitely agree with this. She would be perfect for the role.

Crap you're right! I didn't even think about that.

Fixed it.

Hmm, interesting. Enlighten me Aidenraine, why Death over War?

That decision was more loosely based on Lancer, and I should've remembered Kain from Final Fantasy too. But I stand with Killik, he may not have a Lance, but he was best fit at the time of my decision. Don't forget that I mentioned above that I almost picked Talim, but despite being a swift striking character, the weapon don't match the category.

pretty much personal preference, really. I think they'd both make good Riders.

Went with anime characters. Some may not fit. Whatever.

Saber: Erica Blandelli from Campione!



Archer: Train Heartnet from Black Cat



Lancer: Alibaba from Magi



Caster: Shiroe from Log Horizon



Rider: Ryoko from Tenchi Muyo!



Berserker: Broly from Dragon Ball Z



Assassin: Akatsuki from Log Horizon



Tale of the Tape:

- OK, fine, Lancer technically doesn't fit via weapons, but I think the character does (in terms of Alibaba being the "underdog" and "unlucky" character in his anime). Plus Ali's one of my Top 10 favorite male anime characters and I already made a concession at Caster. I was close to putting Sinbad in for Archer, but I was against putting multiple characters from one series in.

- You have no idea how much I wanted to put Ryner Lute (my all-time favorite male anime character) in as Caster. But, Shiroe fit the bill more.

- Ryoko as Rider has as much to do with me not having enough women as it does her fitting the mold, a bit.

Hey, she rides a spaceship.

...Shut up.

- I was torn between Akatsuki for Assassin and Train for Archer or just Train for straight up Assassin. If you asked me tomorrow, I might flip it, but, today, I go with Train as Assassin. 1.) He was an assassin. 2.) I like his manga character a ton. 3.) I was against having two characters from the same series. Although, here, it could've worked like how it worked in F/SN, I guess.

- You know what, I like that idea better. Thanks for convincing me.

- Saber was pretty easy. It was down to basically Emi from Devil is a Part-Timer and Erica basically Yoko Hikasa. Emi's probably a better fit, character-wise, but it's hard to tell how strong she is in her series because of Maou. We get a pretty good handle on how powerful Erica is throughout her show. I would easily be convinced either or, at this point. If I could have two Sabers, I would.

- Easiest pick - Broly as Berserker.

True, I'll admit, those four were solid choices, and Jack of Blades, now that you mention it, I'd see him in place of Gilgamesh easy.
