ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Berserker's real identity is Lü Bu Fèngxiān (呂布奉先, ?), an infamously treacherous military commander from the Three Kingdoms era.

The general of repetition (反覆の将, ?) of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. For two times he cut down his foster fathers, and to repeat the act of betrayal on countless occasions was an unbelievable act for the China that esteemed the Confucian morals. But his military exploits and deeds of arms did not allow others to follow, and he was counted as one of the strongest in the Three Kingdoms' world. He betrayed Ding Yuan who appointed him to a high position and conspired with Demon Lord Dong Zhuo, who had grasped the central hegemony. But even Dong Zhuo was betrayed and assassinated.[2] He betrayed Dong Zhuo because he was crazily in love with Diao Chan (貂蝉, Chōsen?).[4]

Lu Bu excelled at shooting on horseback, and because of this gift he was likened to the expert of the bow of the Han Dynasty: the "Flying General" Li Guang. The time when the hero of the Three Kingdoms Liu Bei, who Lu Bu called his sworn brother, was cornered by Yuan Shu's military commander, Ji Ling is a man of great influence and Lu Bu's ally. As he did not like the fight between the two, Lu Bu commanded for a halberd to be erected at the camp's gate 150 steeps away.[2]

"I will shoot an arrow, and if it hits the small blade sticking out from the side of that halberd, withdraw your forces. If it doesn't hit, you may fight as much as you like."
—Lu Bu

Both the Earth and Heavens aligned in perfect harmony. It was said that the arrow he shot hit the target beautifully and Ji Ling withdrew his army. This event is later called Gate Halberd Shot (轅門射戟, ?).[2]

After this, he wandered around Zhongyuan, going through many battles, but in the end was attacked and defeated by an opposing general, Cao Cao, due the betrayal of a subordinate. He was then executed.[2]

Lu Bu's selfishness was strong and he believed that there was no military commander in this world above himself, but it seems that he let his guard down towards the strategist Chen Gong, who made use of him "effectively" in his tactics until the end.[2]

AppearanceEdit

Berserker has short red hair with red feather on top of his head and white blank plain eyes. He wears red Chinese general uniform. He appears strong and has a tall figure, his glittering armor reminiscent of a brave general.[4] Archer noted that Berserker is like a living fortress and it'll be extremely hard to break down his walls. He also explains that he is like a mobile fortress specializing in fighting against military.

PersonalityEdit

As Berserker, his personality is emotionless, insane, and lost of mind by only obeying Rani's commands. It wouldn't be surprising for this Heroic Spirit to betray his Master but it is doubtful that Berserker would kill Rani as she looks similar to his wife in his lifetime.[4] However, he does display one glimpse of emotion when he saves Rani and Hakuno from the explosion, looking back and smiling as they are engulfed in light.

DevelopmentEdit

Takashi Takeuchi originally drawn Lu Bu. When Arco Wada first glance at the design, Arco Wada knew instantly that it was Lu Bu without any explanation.[3]

In the initial design, Berserker would have a Centaur mode but it was scrapped because Lu Bu would lose his Chinese style.[4]

RoleEdit

Fate/ExtraEdit

  • Rani and Berserker

Berserker was summoned by Rani VIII, at first the player thought Rani servant was a Lancer class.

Regardless of the choice made by Hakuno Kishinami, they will fight Berserker when they interfere with Rin Tohsaka and Rani's battle.

If Hakuno picked Rin route, Hakuno will save Rin from Berserker. Lancer stays and sacrifice himself to stall Berserker until Hakuno and Rin escapes back to the school. However Hakuno would eventually fight against him in the Sixth round. In the sixth round, Berserker tried to attack Hakuno from the school when he escaped to the dungeon. Berserker missed, Rin says it looks like the work of Berserker, a physical attack lack any kind of control. The blast bypass SE.RA.PH system that caused damage to the school.

If Hakuno chose Rani route, Hakuno's attempt to save Rani would make her lose control of Berserker. While Hakuno attempts to fend off from Berserker attack, SE.RA.PH intervened with it Rule infraction warning. Lancer used this opportunity to impaled Rani's chest, Berserker tried to fight back until SE.RA.PH dropped a barrier. As Rani's energy core is about to explode, Berserker ran to the core shielding both Hakuno and Rani. As Berserker started to disappear, Hakuno saw Berserker smiled gently towards Hakuno and Rani.

AbilitiesEdit

Lu Bu under Mad Enhancement has lost his reasoning in exchange for strengthening his parameter and lost a large function of his techniques. This Berserker also that has been impaired with all kinds of martial arts in his lifetime.[4] He is a land stronghold that has the qualifications for five Classes: Lancer, Rider, Assassin, Berserker and Archer. He wields a halberd called Houtengageki (方天画戟, lit. The Decrated Halberd that Matches the Heavens?) and it is also his Noble Phantasm called God Force. Though most of the function of God Force has been lost due to his insanity.[5]

His own horse Red Hare (赤兎馬, ?) can become a Noble Phantasm but he couldn't use it in the Moon Cell Holy Grail War due to his current Servant classes. The horse was not attached to anyone but him, and it has been said that once Lu Bu managed to jump over a castle's trench of at the very least more than 30 meters while riding on it.[2]

"Among men, Lü Bu; among horses, Red Hare"
—so it was recited about Lu Bu's favorite horse.

CombatEdit

  • Armistice (絶武無双ほこ、まじえるにあたわず, ?) - It is a self skill that inflicts Stun on an enemy when using BREAK. The effect would only last for 3 turns.
  • Fallible Bow (必中無弓ゆみ、きそうかちなし, ?) - Inflicts physical damage and Stun on an enemy. The effect would only last for 2 moves.
  • Immortal Red Hare (赤兎無尽せきと、いまだしなず, ?) - This skill will bring him back from death a single time. This Skill will revive him with 10% HP. He would keep using this Skill every turn once the condition is met.

Nature of a Rebellious SpiritEdit

His personal skill; Nature of a Rebellious Spirit (反骨の相, Hankotsunosō?, localized as Restless Soul) gives one the temperament of a lone wolf, unable and unwilling to settle in one place or serve one master. This person will never be able to follow greatness, yet is incapable of finding greatness on his own. This skill negates the effect of Charisma (カリスマ, ?) skills of the same rank.[1][2] The skill was sealed as this skill will very likely make him betray his Master. It is a rare example of using the correct characteristics of the Berserker class.[4]
