Best Servants in Fate/Grand Order

ModernSpongeBobSucks
As of the writing of this list description, the English release of Fate/Grand Order, an online free-to-play role-playing game based on Fate/stay night visual novel game and franchise by Type-Moon, has been released since June 25 of 2017. I downloaded the game on my smartphone right on its launch day, and from there on, I've been having quite a lot of fun battling enemies in quests by commanding Servants in a mission to save humanity's future.

That said, I feel obligated to make an entire main list detailing the best Servants you can get in Fate/Grand Order. After making several sub lists of the best Servants based on their ranks and classes, this list's ordering of what I believe to be the best Servants in the game will be based on information from wikis and articles, my personal experience with the Servants, and what others have said about the Servants. If you're an FGO player like me, feel free to vote and add more Servants to this list if you would like. Thanks and enjoy viewing this list.

21 Francis Drake Francis Drake

Let's go over Francis Drake's versatility as a Rider-class Servant. First off, she's already efficient at dropping Critical stars at a high rate. Second of all, her AOE Noble Phantasm is especially effective at dealing heavy damage and simultaneously gaining Critical stars as well. To top it all off, her skills are all-around diverse and can always be useful to herself as a Servant and to your party as well. Ranging from increasing NP damage and attack for 1 turn to charging her NP gauge, making your attacks IGNORE INVINCIBILITY for 3 turns, and gaining 10 Critical stars all in one go, Francis Drake is perhaps the best Rider-class Servant in the NA server right now. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

22 Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla

Now introducing our modern-day lightning God Zeus, Nikola Tesla! While it's a bit of a stretch for me to think that he's the best Archer bar none, he certainly seems to be worthwhile and considerable for being one of the best SSR Archer-class Servants in FGO. From my perspective, he seems to be adept at being able to charge NP and create the most damage output from that NP. His first skill increases his own NP generation for 3 turns, his second skill grants him a Guts status for 5 turns along with an 80% chance to increase defense and NP damage for 3 turns along with increasing attack for 3 turns as well (once he gets his Strengthening Quest), and his third skill charges his NP gauge and pierces invincibility along with gaining 10 Critical Stars in the process. Wow, just two out of three skills and both of them carry multiple benefits! I guess we can say his skill set is his strongest asset in his gameplay. As for his Noble Phantasm System Keraunos, it's not too bad either since it ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

23 Arjuna Arjuna

Not the best Archer compared to others, but not totally useless. While Karna is quite more popular than his brother, Arjuna does still have his own merits as an SSR Archer. At least until we get his new Interlude, his first skill increases critical star generation rate for 3 turns (with self debuff immunity being granted as well after playing through his Interlude). As for his second skill, it charges his own NP gauge by 25%, regenerates HP for 5 turns, and generates Critical Stars each turn for 5 turns, which honestly isn't too bad especially considering it heals Arjuna unlike most Archers in the game. And for his third skill, it increases Buster performance and NP damage for 1 turn only, so it really comes in handy when you're ready to unleash his Noble Phantasm Pashupata. Speaking of which, Pashupata is pretty good as well, being an AoE attack and also having a 30% chance to cause instant death (50% if the enemies have the Divine Traits). Give it some overcharge and you can reduce ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

24 Oda Nobunaga 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.

Once the server is back up, we'll have a fun time farming for our Demon Archer. Liz Halloween is a decent welfare Caster, but as for Nobu, I would consider her one of the more powerful welfare Servants gameplay-wise. First off, her skills and NP allow her to deal a lot of extra damage to Divine and Riding enemies respectively. Let's not forget to mention one section of T.V. Tropes where it states that an Archer like Nobu is capable of defeating a LANCER like Karna hands down. As for the rest of Nobu's assets, her skills are decent at best, but go VERY WELL when paired with Okita. So definitely try and farm up all those Honnouji points for the Devil King of the Sixth Heaven! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

25 Frankenstein Frankenstein

Here we now have our most recent AoE NP Berserker that was just introduced in the London chapter. For a Berserker like her, her skill set consists of her above average NP gain in conjunction with her first skill as well that increases said NP gain, her second skill that has a 60% chance of stunning an enemy and reducing defense, and her third skill that increases NP damage. Basically, this skill set in particular stands out from most Berserkers and seems to be more balanced between NP gain and NP damage output. While there are demerits like burning herself for 5 turns little by little or stunning herself after using her Blasted Tree, her pros outweigh her cons in terms of skills. Not to mention that her NP damage is capable of surpassing that of Tamamo Cat's AoE NP by a doubled amount. And even on single enemies despite her NP being AoE! Overall, a nice Berserker to own if you don't have an SR or SSR Berserker already. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

26 Mysterious Heroine X Mysterious Heroine X

If you want the best Assassin possible, it's best not to roll on MHX's banner and just save up for someone like Jack the Ripper for now. But if you're really a huge Artoria fan building up a Saberface collection or you're just desperate to get the most out of the Saber Wars event that hasn't even had a rerun on the JA server yet as I type this comment in January 2018, it's your choice. That said, someone like Mysterious Heroine X... is not really a worthwhile SSR Assassin compared to others ones like Jack the Ripper or King Hassan. After all, MHX's moveset is quite too niche and situational to really be of great use outside of the Saber Wars event. Her first skill is basically a delayed stun debuff, which can rather be hit-or-miss at best depending on if you time it correctly. Her second skill is rather below average in gaining Critical Stars, but it does get better once her Strengthening Quest comes and it manages to not only gain more Critical Stars, but also grant self ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

27 Hans Christian Andersen Hans Christian Andersen

The Zhuge Liang of bronze-rarity Servants. While Andersen is unsurprisingly a Squishy Wizard given his low defense stats and not having much powerhouse strength compared to ones like Zhuge Liang and Merlin, Andersen does indeed have something that makes him a worthy rival to them. With his second skill filling up more than half of his NP gauge and his QAAAB card deck further allowing him to charge his NP gauge, you can expect to spam his Marchen Meines Lebens about as often as you can spam Medea's Rule Breaker. As for his Noble Phantasm itself, it increases all allies' attack and defense buffs and regenerates their HP for 3 turns. Of course, the chances for those buffs increases as you overcharge the NP gauge, and given it's easier to max out Andersen's NP level, that makes things all the more easy to utilize his NP wisely and frequently. It's even much to the point that he's even still useful for higher difficulty content in the later game's chapters. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

28 Artoria Pendragon (Lancer Alter) Artoria Pendragon (Lancer Alter) 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.

Now London has given us our third Alter in the form of Lancer Alter. To start off, Lancer Alter is to vanilla Lancer as Saber Alter is to vanilla Saber. Artoria Lancer Alter, or should I say "Tituria" based on her surprisingly busty design, is quite the menacing SR Lancer-class Servant. You know this Lancer means business when she really is a true Lancer given that she mounts on a horse with lance in hand like REAL lancers do (no disrespect, Cu and Scathach). For her skill set, it basically functions like any other standard Artoria skill set with the Mana Burst skill that increases Buster performance for 1 turn and the Charisma skill that increases party attack for 3 turns, though the Blessings from the End of the World skill is a slight improvement from the Instinct skill given that it increases critical star absorption and critical strength for 1 turn and grants Critical Stars all in one go. Other than rank, I think Lancer Alter might just be packing in slightly more attack power ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

29 Robin Hood Robin Hood

With the right setup and usage of skills and efficient and pacing, Robin Hood's single-target Noble Phantasm can truly prove to be an OP OHKO nuke. Even as a 3-star, while he doesn't boast pure strength, his tactical skill set of inflicting attack debuffs and poison (simultaneously) and increasing NP generation rate. He'll be able to get his third skill of piercing invincibility, applying self-evasion, and gaining Critical stars all in one go once we finally get his Strengthening Quest. But even while we have yet to play his Strengthening Quest on the NA server, he's still worth keeping as a mainstay in your party especially if you don't have SR or SSR Archers like EMIYA or Gilgamesh. Calling back to his skill that allows him to poison enemies, that skill is especially vital as Robin Hood's Yew Bow can deal twice or more multiplied damage if that single-target enemy is poisoned. For more damage output, using a Mystic Code or Servant skill or Craft Essence to increase his Arts ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

30 Sakata Kintoki Sakata Kintoki

Sakata Kintoki is having a rate-up along with Gilgamesh and Scathach for the upcoming Thanksgiving banner. While I'm saving up for Scathach, Sakata Kintoki is also a pretty worthwhile SSR Berserker as well. In terms of strength, his attack stats go far and beyond that of Vlad III's max attack like Heracles (an SR, if I may add) does. His skills are pretty decent too since his first skill increases his attack for 1 turn, his second skill charges up his NP gauge by a decent amount, and his third skill increases his own attack debuff resistance and restores some of his HP by a considerably good amount. He's not as durable as Heracles or even Vlad III, but of all Berserkers so far until we get Mama Raikou, he's probably the strongest one of his class in terms of attack stat numbers. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

31 Artoria Pendragon (Santa Alter) Artoria Pendragon (Santa Alter) 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.

About time they finally released Santa Alter for real. From what I've heard, she seems to be more powerful than her Saber counterpart in terms of NP multiplier and/or attack stats. That's to be expected for almost any Alter counterpart. And based on her skill set, it seems pretty well-rounded too. Though, I'd say this skill set is more centered around Critical hits more than attack buffs. Her first skill restores HP and increases Critical Star drop rate for one ally, her second skill grants a large amount of Critical Stars, and her third skill increases her Buster card effectiveness. Huh, not bad for a Santa variation of Saber Alter. Looks like I won't have to rely on Marie Antoinette anymore as my ace Rider-class Servant since Power Creep has made her attack power weak compared to my other ace Servants. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

32 Nursery Rhyme Nursery Rhyme

For a support unit, Nursery Rhyme seems pretty decent from my eyes. Though, rather than being best suited for an Arts-oriented team, it seems a Quick-oriented team is more suited for her given her reliance on Critical Stars. So I guess it goes without saying why she and Jack the Ripper go hand-in-hand when on said Quick-oriented team. It's only going to get better when we get Jeanne d'Arc (Alter) (Santa Lily) to complete the Quick trio (or Christmas loli trio, if that's what you want to call it). As for her skill set, it's quite abundant and versatile. First, her first skill increases critical damage and critical star absorption for 3 turns. Next, her second skill increases her defense for 3 turns while doing it by 10% more for 1 turn and increases debuff resistance for 3 turns as well. And finally, her third skill charges her own NP gauge, restores HP, and removes debuffs. Her AoE Noble Phantasm isn't too bad either if you give her the right setup and buffs. Overall, she's worth ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

33 Anne Bonny Anne Bonny

Anne Bonny & Mary Read are some pretty decent SR Rider units right now in the NA Server. They may not have the same powerhouse strength like Francis Drake, but all of their 3 skills are exceptional at collecting Critical stars and dishing out some massive critical damage. In addition, their Noble Phantasm isn't too bad. The damage output of the NP increases with power the lower their HP is. I don't have much to say about this Servant duo right now, but it's worth keeping them as either a reliable Rider-class Servant on the front lines or as a support Servant for your good friends to use. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

34 Elizabeth Bathory (Halloween) Elizabeth Bathory (Halloween)

Known best as FGO's first free SR Event Servant. While she won't stack up against more god-tier Free Servants later on in the game like Chloe von Einzbern and Sakata Kintoki (Rider), for what she is right now on her own merit, she's at the very least a pretty decent Caster-class Servant. While I would preferably stick to Casters I already have like Medea and Hans Christian Andersen, Liz Halloween is a pretty good damage dealer and has some decent skills, with some of them carrying over from her Lancer variation and some of them being ones exclusive to her. Especially the one where she both increases her own Buster performance and burns all her enemies for TEN turns at the same time. And her AoE Noble Phantasm is a pretty efficient attack for the Caster class, so she really pushes Mephistopheles to the curb for this. Also, Liz Halloween is MUCH better than Liz Brave and always will be in terms of gameplay. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
