Best Fate Series Servants

This list is based on how much you like the character. I have only watched Unlimited Blade Works and Fate/Apocrypha. I've started Zero, but I don't think I have enough knowledge to judge those characters. I've also played Fate/Extella and Fate/Grand Order. Please add more Servants that I may not know about!
The Top Ten
1 Jeanne d'Arc Jeanne d'Arc is a Ruler-class Servant from the Fate series. She is the Ruler-class Servant of the Great Holy Grail War in Fate/Apocrypha. She is also one of the Servants of the Protagonist of the Grand Order conflicts of Fate/Grand Order.

Her singularity in Fate/Grand Order is my favorite by far and her character as a strong woman who fights for what she believes in is amazing. She was killed by the people she loved, yet she still believes in their goodness. She's beautiful and powerful. I personally love this character. JAlter is also a very good character in my opinion.

Didn't think her Jeanne d'Arc's portrayal in Fate/Apocrypha was that great, but her characterization was incredible from what I've seen of Fate/Extella and her role in the Orleans singularity of Fate/Grand Order. Indeed, she truly is a holy maiden, with a strong will as hard as her Stone Wall tanking power as an FGO unit.

2 Artoria Pendragon Artoria Pendragon (also romanized as Arturia and Altria) is a Saber-class Servant from the Fate series. She is the true identity of Saber in 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... read more

Emiya wasn't the only one caught in aww at first sight of this legend. Artoria was a strong figure during Fate stay night, she took multiple beatings but always got back up ready to fight again. Her Noble phantasm Excalibur truly got the job done whenever it so happened to grace us with its presence. But I don't just like her for her looks and strength, her personality as the lead female of the series was very refreshing.

She was always calm and always ready for a fight, but that didn't stop her from having a little bit of fun now and then. I love her relationship with Emiya, she's respective of him as a master but protective of him as someone close to her. I love the way their relationship is handled it feels very natural and nothing really feels forced.

I'll be honest I've only seen her in Fate stay night and a bit of her in the spin offs but I doubt any other servant will top her for me.

She's my favourite Servant and honestly she's one of my main Waifus. She set the look for all Sabers to come Artoria is my number 1.

3 Nero Claudius (Saber)

At first, I did not feel a lot of connection to this character in Fate/Grand Order, but after Fate/Extella, she has grown on me. She's adorable and confident. Definitely my kind of girl. One thing that keeps her from #1 is how she is just completely in love with the MC in Extella and it controls her in a way. It keeps her from being the best character, but she is a personal favorite of mine.


I don't know if this is a spoiler... EMIYA, or Nameless seems like a jerk in Fate/Stay Night, but he's a much more complicated character than that when you look at his past. He's a very balanced unit in FGO, but I always enjoy using him.

5 Mash Kyrielight

My introduction to Fate was with FGO, so of course, Mash made a huge impression on me. She's so cute and her unit, while not the strongest, is still so useful.

6 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

Strongest servant, best noble phantasms, badass and the funniest character in Carnival Phantasm

7 Tamamo no Mae

At least for Tamamo, it makes sense why she is completely in love in Extella. It's just part of her character and it isn't as forced as Nero. At first, I did not like her because she seemed selfish, but after playing her route in Extella, she is a much better character and has more layers than that. Now... I need to summon her in FGO

8 Karna

I just like his attitude and the way he shows his respect to his opponents. Even though he is one of the strongest servants he never looked down, and last but not the least he never lost the sense of his righteousness and his duty as a 'KSHATRIYA'.

9 Elizabeth Bathory

I'm not really sure why I like this character. I think I just have a lot of sympathy for her, especially because of Fate/Extella. She's cute and an idol, which is a plus, but she makes her decisions based on her personal feelings against someone or something.

10 Cu Chulainn

When it comes to tough challenges and soloing, Cu's the best man to go for. The Child of Light may have E-Rank Luck in Fate anime, but in Fate/Grand Order, his endurance is EX-RANK, bro.

I like this guy. He's cocky and dangerous. His battle against Saber was amazing in F/SN and as a unit in FGO, he's not bad, as a lancer, at least. I like his style, so he's on the list.

The Contenders
11 Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette was one of my first 4* units in FGO and she was very useful because of her NP. Her story in the singularity was a bit weak, but the way she chooses to fight and even sacrifice herself is very emotional.

12 Ishtar

I love Rin, so Ishtar is an automatic favorite. The only reason she isn't higher is because she's only 10% Rin and the rest is Ishtar. That's fine... I guess...

13 Achilles (Rider of Red)
14 Altera Altera, better known as Attila the Hun, is a Saber-class Servant from the Fate series. She has currently appeared in Fate/Grand Order, an online free-to-play role-playing game based on the Fate/stay night visual novel game and franchise by Type-Moon, and Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, an action video... read more

16 Meltlilith
17 Iskandar (Rider)
18 Okita Souji
19 Oda Nobunaga Oda Nobunaga was a powerful Daimyƍ of Japan in the late 16th century who attempted to unify Japan during the late Sengoku period. Nobunaga is regarded as one of three unifiers of Japan along with his retainers Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu... read more
