The Top Ten

1 Saber Saber Saber is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon and its prequel, Fate/Zero, by Type-Moon and nitroplus. She is the the Saber-class Servant of Kiritsugu Emiya during the Fourth Holy Grail War in Fate/Zero and the Saber-class Servant of Shirou ...read more.

Saber truly earns her name as the King of Knights. She's strong, noble, loyal, kind, beautiful, and stands her ground for her own ideals and dreams. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Artoria number 1,so beautiful and strong.

Best waifu ever.

2 Rin Tōsaka Rin Tōsaka Rin Tohsaka is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. She is the main heroine of the Unlimited Blade Works route.

Other than being the typical (yet amazing) tsundere, Rin's intelligence really makes me appreciate her. In my opinion, best love interest of the 3 because the love story doesn't feel forced and is pretty subtle, making it overall believable because, in the end, this is a war, and winning the war should overpower any love story. Overall very lovable.

Her role in episode 10 of Fate/Zero showed her how brave and tough she was, even at a young age. I can't wait to see how the rest of Fate/Zero turns out. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

She is perfect. Love her tsundere. Great master and magus.

3 Archer Archer Archer is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. He is the Archer-class servant of Rin Tohsaka during the Fifth Holy Grail War in Fate/stay night.

Not only is he an awesome badass, but it will truly shock you when you find out his true identity... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Badass, awesome design and character concept, and complex identity. Really challenges many people's views on who is really the good character, especially in the UBW route.

True neutral is usually meh, but Archer shows us that it can be great

ARCHER IS AMAZING!

4 Shirō Emiya Shirō Emiya Shirou Emiya is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon.

I really want to change the current image of him to the one with him standing boldly in a yellow sky. The current one makes him look like an idiot. I actually like him, so I want to change the image as soon as possible. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He's very inspirational in my opinion. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He deserves less hate. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 Kiritsugu Emiya Kiritsugu Emiya Kiritsugu Emiya is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon and its prequel, Fate/Zero, by Type-Moon and nitroplus. He is only mentioned and seen in flashbacks in Fate/stay Night, but is one of the main protagonists of Fate/Zero.

As a child, he once wanted to be a hero of justice who could save everyone. However, as he grew up, he realized that saving the life of one means sacrificing the life of another. Like Saber, although his ideals contrast with her ideals, he stands strong for them. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Shiro Is a clumsy, boring, and generic typical cliche protagonist. Wish Kiritsugu wasn't dead in this one

My favorite anime character of all time

Though he had no presence in fate/stay night, his role in fate/zero makes him one of the best characters. His complicated backstory, his morals, and his decisions make him seem like both an ass and a hero. In my opinion, outranks Shirou.

6 Gilgamesh Gilgamesh Gilgamesh is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. He is the Archer-class servant of Tokiomi Tohsaka and a secondary antagonist during the Fourth Holy Grail War in Fate/Zero. He reprises his role as a secondary antagonist during the Fifth ...read more.

Gate of Babylon. Also known as, the best Noble Phantasm in my opinion ever. Gilgamesh is a jerk, but he's an awesome, badass jerk. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

"The path of devotion is a great labor. Do not ever mar it." - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Bad ass mofo

7 Lancer Lancer Lancer is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. Lancer can refer to two different Lancer-class servants: Diarmuid Ua Duibhne from Fate/Zero and Cú Chulainn from Fate/stay night.

At first, I thought he was just going to be a stereotypical bad guy, but when I watched Season 2 of Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works, he turned out to be a likable and compassionate hero. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Definitely one of the most underrated characters. Qualifies for berserker, caster, and lancer class, showing how much his power varies. His role in UBW really redeemed him as a character. There's a reason he is a heroic spirit: he saves lives.

Lancer is actually the best character. This guy... ohmygah

8 Sakura Matō Sakura Matō Sakura Matou is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. She is the main heroine of the Heaven's Feel route.

Fate/stay night anime-only viewers might get confused on her route (Heaven's Feel). Be sure to watch Fate/Zero.

There's an upcoming movie trilogy called Fate/Stay Night: Heaven's Feel where Sakura Matou is the main heroine. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

9 Illyasviel von Einzbern Illyasviel von Einzbern Illyasviel von Einzbern is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. She is also the main protagonist of an alternate universe spin-off of the Fate/stay night visual novel by Type-Moon called Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya.

She's one of the few characters in the series who has her backstory explored. And her strong bond with Berserker is touching as well. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

She has her own spin-off called Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

10 Kirei Kotomine Kirei Kotomine Kirei Kotomine is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. He is the main antagonist of Fate/Zero and the general main antagonist of Fate/stay night. In Fate/stay night, he plays an important role in the unfolding events in all three routes, ...read more.

Gotta say, Kirei Kotomine makes for quite an awesome villain. In Fate/Zero, I loved how his character motivation was complex and not just straightforward and how his character would shift from being a neutral character to a badass Black Key-wielding antagonist. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Without a doubt the most complex and likable antagonist in fate stay night. He is the toughest master and the most ruthless.

The Contenders

11 Taiga Fujimura Taiga Fujimura Taiga Fujimura is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon.

"Fly for the moon! " - Taiga Fujimura in Carnival Phantasm - ModernSpongeBobSucks

12 Caster Caster Caster is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. Caster can refer to two different Caster-class servants: Gilles de Rais from Fate/Zero and Medea from Fate/stay night.

She's one of the best and most complex antagonists in Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

13 Berserker Berserker Berserker is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. Berserker can refer to two different Berserker-class servants: Lancelot from Fate/Zero and Heracles from Fate/stay night.

When he saved Illyasviel from those wolves that one snowy day, it was not because of Illyasviel's command, but rather of his own free will. He may look scary on the outside, but on the inside, he is actually kind and willing to protect his master. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

14 Assassin

He's a very skilled and cool samurai shrouded in mysteries. If only he wasn't confined to being a gatekeeper, I would have loved to see more of him in Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

15 Rider Rider Rider is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. Rider can refer to two different Rider-class servants: Iskandar from Fate/Zero and Medusa from Fate/stay night.

It's too bad she doesn't have much of a role in the Unlimited Blade Works route of Fate/Stay Night. I am heavily anticipating her more active role in the upcoming anime movie adaptation of the Heaven's Feel route. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
