There are many legends about him, but no historical records to support them. He is the son of Raijin as a red dragon, and his mother is a cannibal mountain witch living on Mount Ashigara (足柄山, Ashigara-yama?). Kintoki was raised with the strength of a monster, fighting and killing beasts in the mountain. Eventually, his mother, an ogress, was vanquished by Usui Sadamitsu, but Kintoki, taken to Minamoto no Yorimitsu, was taught the way of man, and became his retainer. He participated in many hunts for demons as one of the Four Heavenly Kings of Yorimitsu. He is famous for the episode of the battle against Shuten-douji on Ooe-yama, where he disguised himself as mountain priest, drugged Shuten-douji's alcohol and struck him down. In that episode, he fell in love with the demon Shuten-douji disguised as a beautiful girl, and then had to carry this burden for the rest of his life.
Golden (ゴールデン, Gōruden?) is his given nickname.
Kintoki is wild and arrogant, but firm and righteous. As he is particularly kind to mothers and children, he is a hero to all children. His mentality is that of an average grade schooler. Being summoned in the modern age, he quickly adopted popular habits. He likes flashy things and loves shiny things; he absolutely adores gold. He says "gold" and "golden" a lot about everything. He is very bad at love, which is his biggest weak point.
In Chibichuki!, Sakata Kintoki forms a group along with Cú Chulainn, Hideyoshi and Alice's Robin ploy. Kintoki reenacts Momotarō (桃太郎, ?) story where he plays as Momotarō, Hideyoshi plays the role of monkey, Cú Chulainn plays the role of dog and Robin plays the role of the pheasant.
Mad Enhancement (狂化, Kyōka?): E
Normally does not receive the benefits of Mad Enhancement. In exchange, he retains a normal capacity to think. A Luck Check is performed whenever damage is received, failure results in him going wild and Stats excepting MGI and LCK being raised. On that occasion, his whole body becomes red.
Animal Dialogue (動物会話, Dōbutsu Kaiwa?): C
Communication of intention with animals that don't possess words. Since it's not like the intellect of the animals improve, very complex nuances are not conveyed. Even then, maybe because Kintoki's mental structure is close to animals, they strangely get into a mutual understanding.
Natural Body (天性の肉体, Tensei no Nikutai?): C
Possesses a perfect body as a living being from birth. The owner of this Skill is treated as if his STR is always Rank-Up. Furthermore, even without training his muscles are brawny and his body shape doesn't change no matter how much calories he intakes.
Divinity (神性, Shinsei?): D
Divine Spirit aptitude that comes from origins as a thunder deity's son. Because his mother was a man-eating mountain witch, the rank is low. It will rarely activate as resistance in regards to the attack of Heroic Spirits that possess thunder deity-lineage roots and legends.
Creation and ConceptionEdit
Sakata Kintoki was designed by Jin Haganeya and character designed by Raita Honjou for the canceled Fate/Apocrypha online game project, which was not included in the final version. He was collected along with the other thirteen initial Servant designs in Fate/complete material IV Extra material. The project was revived in novel format afterwards, but he was cut, in favor of Frankenstein and Spartacus.
Yuuichirou Higashide said that Kintoki as an enemy, he's a far too nice guy to fight, and as an ally, he's very reliable. Furthermore, one aspect of the plot that was decided near the beginning was that "Frankenstein will use her Noble Phantasm and revive", so Frankenstein had to take up the slot for the ally Berserker, causing Kintoki to be discarded.
