Other way around.
She's the Rider.

F/SN True Assassin is more canon fodder than Zero Assassin. At least that one can win against humans with sheer numbers.
Sure he is cannon fodder when put against another servant but assassins was never meant to fight the enemy head on, in a battle that you can win by overpowering your enemy or by killing the master, assassin's presence concealment skill that can hide himself even againts servant is very lethal to masters


The problem with that there's quite a few masters that could hold off or even kill him. If the Master happens to be someone like say Bazzett you be fucked(More than you would normally be).

For me I would summon Hercules as Archer

It's not like people don't see servants when they are physical, they just don't see them in their....servant modes, because they do that when people aren't around. Most of them, anyway.

No, no, poof mode is invisible.
Servant mode is all the armour and weapons and things.

Saber obvs. But realistically I would probably get Archer because I am more pragmatic than idealist.

Also, Nero Caeser was a girl.

Annnddd so's Francis Drake, but then again, there's already a legend in which he and Queen Elizabeth switched places, so there's a basis for that one.

I actually really liked Assassin of Black's History and eventual complications at summoning. But yeah she uhhhh.. Doesn't have any pants.. Must be because she was poor. Yeah that's it.


My love for Lolis aside I'd summon Archer of Red, because she's just so fekkin cute. Also her arrows can pierce Berserkers God-Hand.. So take that FSN Archer.

To be fair I'm pretty sure other people designed many of the F/A servants for when it was gonna be an MMO.

Though I like the end result of Drake and Nero gender bending, but I don't hate the premise as much as other people.

Rerailing the thread... ^^

After a lot of thinking... I'd choose Lancer.

Best compatibility by personality (second best would probably be Saber), Noble Phantasm has low mana cost and great effectivity. Lancer is also pretty tenacious, and when coupled with his Battle Continuation, we might escape easily from bad situations.

Battle plan would be in two phases: first, I'd ask Lancer to do basically the same thing F/SN Masters would order: scout each of the enemy Servants, going for the kill if possible but otherwise priority on staying alive and gathering information (Holy Grail War is more information war rather than actual fighting). Once information has been gathered, we'd go into semi-assassination mode, picking targets by priority and taking them out one by one... unless something unforeseen happens (diplomatic or otherwise).

My problem with summoning Rider would always be Mana, She could handle almost any servant if I had access to all her NP's at once.. But that takes an F-load of mana and I'm going to assume I'm not Illya. Which means I'd have to syphon off an Orphanage or two.

That's my main reason not going for Rider and Berserker, as I assumed I'm Shirou-level mage... or even closer, Shinji-level mage... Berserker would be impossible to control for me, Rider takes too much mana to use and I wouldn't permit the usage of Blood Fort Andromeda (it was in ep8 so...)

Which leaves Saber, Archer, Lancer, Caster and Assassin.

Assassin is too weak on offense so he's out.
Caster... has hax mana capacity, but problem is lack of melee capabilities - after all, I can't fight at all to cover her from other servants. Also, what would probably happen is role reversal, with her gaining pseudo Independent Action XD
Archer... I love his adaptability and would be #1 choice if not for his Independent Action and slight incompatibility by personality.
Saber has Noble Phantasms with relatively high mana costs. We would easily end up in the situation in Fate route...

I just realized Archer's ability "Eye of the mind (true)" rank B is actually overpowered as hell. Imagine if someone had it on rank A++! Not even geniuses like Lelouch or Light would be able to get past rank A+, so I guess, you would have to summon Inaho Kaizuka to reach A++, which gives certain victory in battle, as long as the chances of victory are above 0%.

No matter which servant comes to mind, I can't think of one that I would be worthy enough of a master for.

They'd probably kill me on day 1 ._.

Nah you'll be right, at worst you can just summon Lancer and take him down to the pier for a bro-to-bro fishing session (fishing is really easy to learn). Voila, defend you with his life.

Are you implying that your foursome alliance with the King of Heroes and his waifu the King of Knights is insufficient?

Not at all, just highlighting that our relationship is one of preference and not necessity. That 3 day sexy pillow-fight was leagues better than melting an Orphanage.

Unless we could like.. Do both. At the same time.

I'd choose Lancer. Using his noble phantasm carefully and smartly would let him win against all servants other than Berserker. Runic magic knowledge is also useful and powerful which would allow lancer to possibly kill Zerker twice with both Gae bolg activations after amping NP rank to A for a short time.

You guys do realize Tatsuya is pretty much a personification of a god right?
Tatsuya Shiba code name: Maheśvara

Aka Shiva the hindu god, one of his other names being Maheśvara. Or at least he's described by that. Maheśvara meaning great lord
Shivas trident the power of destruction and regeneration, known as the transformer/destroyer in the Hindu trinity of gods

Tatsuya Shiba's magics are decomposition and regrowth.
Even the links between miyuki and parvati are there.

Not gonna argue any points of the writing in Mahouka, but at least the author did his research on character he created.

So yea summoning Tatsuya is summoning a god

Personally I'm not a fan of protagonists that never seem to break a sweat (mind you I havn't finished it yet)

But I like a bit more struggle in my story. Then again that never stopped me from liking the personification of a tactical nuke that was Nanoha in StrikerS.

I think they can actually be pretty entertaining. Like Alucard, for example. It was cool that pretty much everything was pretty much a joke to him, hell he was even scary at points, so I think it was played off well there. He's also balanced out by Seras, who does struggle. So, I guess that's nice.

Well the anime did a bad job portraying Mahouka and the characters, Mahouka isn't about struggling in fights against opponents rather it more about the discrimination in Magic Society and discrimination against Magicians as a whole. Also considering the limiters and restrictions put on Tatsuya, he does struggle but makes it up with his intelligence and preparedness. I do recommend the LN though for a better experience. Lets just end it here before this becomes Mahouka thread.


Also you do not want Tatsuya is "Berserker" class................that would be the end of the world.

Wasn't really much tension in the Hellsing Ultimate cause of that. Pretty much just had Alucard tearing through everyone. If it sounds like I'm complaining I'm not - it was awesome.

Alucard (like Nanoha now that I think about it) still had a strategic weakness that were exploitable.


I still haven't seen all of irregular yet but he seems to just reveal more power as time goes on. Which means fuck all because I don't know what I'm talking about in this instance.
