Assassin (アサシン, Asashin?) is an Assassin-class Servant able to be summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order. He also appears as the Berserker-class Berserker of Shinjuku (新宿のバーサーカー, Shinjuku no Bāsākā?) along with Christine Daaé.



Assassin's True Name is the Phantom of the Opera (ファントム・オブ・ジ・オペラ, Funtom obu ji Opera?). A masked killer. The mysterious person who appeared in “The Phantom of the Opera”, a novel set in the 19th Century――perhaps, the person who became its model. Settling down and inhabiting in an aqueduct that is like a vast underground labyrinth beneath the opera house (Palais Garnier), he was charmed by a young and chaste actress who was viewed as purity itself, even guiding her into becoming a diva, and conducted serial murders on behalf of his unfulfilled love.[1][2]


A man who conceals his accursed and grotesque face with a mask modelled after a skull.[1][2]

Due to his Innocent Monster Skill, he, who is the model for “The Phantom of the Opera” novel character, has received the influence of that work and his face has changed into something grotesque, and both of his arms also already transformed into something that belongs to those of a grotesque monster's. If he completely removes his black gloves, claws that are even more sharper and dangerous than large knives are stretched out, and both grotesque hands become exposed out in the open.[1][2]


Fundamentally, he is gentlemanly, normally. However, he is not a true gentleman; rather, he is doing no more than consistently playing the part of “himself as a gentleman”. An enormous sorrow and anger are being hidden beneath his mask, and he is deeply conscious that once they start to overflow, a tragedy will be brought forth.[1][2]

He constantly works to restrain himself and kill that impulse. While holding conversations, he openly sings to show that his suppression of those impulses is being effective. But if he stops singing, evidence of his real nature as the “Phantom of the Opera” begins to appear, a figure who is insane and viewed as cold-hearted by dealing with the obstacles in his path through their elimination, becoming a slaughterer if it is for the sake of his purpose. He likes girls with a beautiful voice. At such a girl where his eyes are affixed to her, he will also appeal that “she will mature into a diva if she is under his guidance.[2]

As for the Master, he somehow becomes emotionally attached to them while saying “what a magnificently beautiful voice.” He is mixing them up with the diva of his past.[1][2] Although he acquired an insanity because of his Mental Pollution, he is very obedient as a Servant. However, because those utterances are always like conversational singing, practically, what he is trying to say aren’t transmitted very well.[2]

The wish he wants to make on the Holy Grail is “for the diva that he guided to receive the honor of being the best in the world.[1][2] If possible, he wants to bring up the Master as a diva (regardless of gender).[2] Therefore, he will probably care for the Master more than anything else.[1][2]

Their conversations and strangeness mesh well with each other.[2]


Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Orleans: The Wicked Dragon Hundred Years' WarEdit

Under the command of the Dragon Witch, the Phantom of the Opera possessed absolute control of the ruined city of Lyon, which he called it the middle of Hell where the dead lives.

In search for the Dragon Slayer spoken of by Saint Martha, Ritsuka Fujimaru, with his party Mash Kyrielight, Jeanne d'Arc, Marie Antoinette and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, encountered the Phantom after fighting off the living dead that was in the city. He would then speak that the dead has no peace in their souls. After he is fought and defeated, he would remark that his mission is already complete, though he would never be rewarded. He than warns Jeanne d'Arc that her evil has grown more powerful than her, and that they should run to the ends of the earth as the Evil Dragon arrives. Before he continues on more of his ominous warnings, Mozart finishes him off.

Miss Almost Weekly Santa AlterEdit

When Julius Caesar was mistakened as Santa Claus, the Phantom was made by Caesar to sign off as the buyer of Darius III's possessions. However, he is unable to get Christine as his present, and begins to wallow in sorrow when Caesar runs off. Later, he voices his lamentations aloud about Christine along with his frustrations at couples, Santa Claus, and Christmas, and claims that it makes him think that Christmas is called a night for loved ones. However, when Santa Alter reveals and introduces herself as Santa Claus, he becomes enraged and tries to kill her and take her presents. After he is defeated by Santa Alter, the Phantom is left depressed by the realization of what he had done. Then, after confirming Darius III as the same Darius that wrote a letter to Santa Claus, he is given Christine as his present.

Salomon: The Grand Time TempleEdit

The Phantom is amongst the "Orleans" Singularity Servants assisting Chaldea against the Demon Gods Pillars.[3]

Shinjuku: Malignant Quarantined Demonic RealmEdit

The Phantom, as a Berserker, appears in the "Shinjuku" Singularity, accompanied by a Phantom, Christine, that he placed into a doll. He is part of the Phantom Demon Alliance along with James Moriarty, EMIYA Alter, Yan Qing and Hessian Lobo. He resides in Kabukicho, commanding hundreds of Coloraturas, puppet-like enemies.

The Phantom and Christine appear for the first time when they ambush Ritsuka Fujimaru and Moriarty, wanting to kill them both. Ritsuka and Moriarty manage to stall them long enough to escape with Moriarty distracting them by blowing up a gas station. The party later attempt to take out the Phantom by using a reprogrammed Coloraturas to create a large explosion. This gives Moriarty and Ritsuka enough time for them to fight the Phantom while Artoria Alter and Jeanne Alter hold back the other Coloraturas. After they defeat Christine, EMIYA Alter appears, finishing off the Phantom.


In his interlude Christine's Call, the Phantom goes to Paris with Ritsuka and Mash in order to look for Christine underneath the city. Once there, the group encounters Gilles de Rais, and then together, the Phantom and Gilles repeatedly praise the names of their loved ones; the Phantom praising Christine, Gilles praising Jeanne d'Arc. However, after the group defeat a horde of ghosts, the Phantom decides that he wants to return to Chaldea, saying that Christine is no longer underneath Paris anymore. After Romani Archaman guesses that the Phantom was actually searching for traces of Christine, the group leaves Paris.


The Phantom's Noble Phantasm is Christine, Christine.


Creation and ConceptionEdit

Shimaudon is the character illustrator for the Phantom of the Opera.[1][2] Hikaru Sakurai is the scenario writer for his character.[2]

Comment from IllustratorEdit

"Although he already turned into this kind of character because of an original version of an event, his design was initially drawn up with an elegant image. However, after Mr. Takeuchi said that “he should be even more of a mysterious person”, he settled down into this current design. Also, when I was looking up various mediums of “The Phantom of the Opera” to get that touch in drawing his pictures, I found that the “Phantom of the Opera” in the olden days was conscious of himself, given that there was a side to this mysterious person who was conscious of his entire face, so it is different when the visuals show him concealing only the right side of his face with a mask; personally, I resolutely created a “young mysterious person who was possessed”, and I did an illustration to represent that in his last Ascension. In this game, because he holds a Noble Phantasm that is overall valuable as an Assassin, I am grateful that he greatly plays an active role in the Ember Gatherings."[2]
