Brynhildr Romantia: Until Death Divide the Two Apart (死がふたりを分断つまでブリュンヒルデ・ロマンシア, Shi ga Futari wo Bundantsu madeBuryunhirude Romanshia?) is the "spear of love and hate" of Brynhildr. Rather than being a true spear, it is a manifestation of her deep affection and hatred towards Sigurd having morphed with the mithril spear she used in life. Due to the betrayal of Sigurd and the subsequent damage to her honor and reputation, it was used out of revenge against him.[2][3][4][5]

The spear grows heavier and larger the more she loves, capable of weighing more than 5000 kilograms near maximum love, and is even able to kill the goddess Hel if fully grown.[6][7] While its effective targets seem limited, Brynhildr holds some love towards every hero due to her being a former Valkyrie. However, in Fate/Prototype: Fragments of Blue and Silver, this backfires when she uses it against Manaka Sajyou since she held entirely no love for her.[8] It displays an especially tremendous efficacy in regards to her beloved Sigurd, the person she truly loves in her prior life (it is also quite effective towards Siegfried, who has deep connections to Sigurd, as well as against people who Brynhildr believes is a "true hero").[2][1] Nigel Sayward was able to work around this particular limit by making Brynhildr drink one of his miracle drugs that makes her enter a state of "forced love", causing the latter to see a target as Sigurd to maximize the efficiency of this Noble Phantasm.[7]

VariationsEdit

Until Death Divide the Two Apart (Passionlip)Edit

“Oh, this is the form of love...”
“I, completely understood. If you cannot be loved by any means, I can hate...”
“I prefer if you become a mess for me, pleasee!!”
“In this, my possession, my heart, my body...”

Passionlip, Fate/Extra CCC


Brynhildr Romantia: Until Death Divide the Two Apart (死がふたりを分断つまでブリュンヒルデ・ロマンシア, Shi ga Futari wo Bundantsu madeBuryunhirude Romanshia?) is a Noble Phantasm bestowed upon Passionlip by BB by utilizing the aspect of the Valkyrie from the Volsunga Saga, Brynhildr, within Passionlip as material, having undergone illegal modification from a normal Noble Phantasm into something with effects slightly different than the original.[3][5][4] Passionlip's Noble Phantasm carries the same attribute as Brynhildr's Noble Phantasm.[9] The more love she feels for the target, the stronger its power, and the more accurate and damaging it will become.[9][5] It is said to never let her loved one escape, even should her love be completely one-sided.[5]

Rather than manifesting as a spear for Passionlip, she invokes the Noble Phantasm with her two large claws, separating them from her arms and launching them at her opponent. After they strike numerous times, they return to her, and she performs a crushing, clamping attack to finish them off. Passionlip's Trash & Crash, invoked with her hands, combines with it to create an instant-death effect as well.[5]

Even If Death Do Us Apart (Passionlip)Edit

English | Japanese

“I can't bear it any more!”
“I still don't quite understand, but... I've decided to face these feelings properly! Begone!"
"Brynhildr Romantia!”

Passionlip, Fate/Grand Order


Passionlip's Noble Phantasm once held the same attribute as Brynhildr's Noble Phantasm, but that's a story of the past. Formerly called by the heart as Brynhildr Romantia: Until Death Divide the Two Apart (死がふたりを分断つまでブリュンヒルデ・ロマンシア, Shi ga Futari wo Bundantsu madeBuryunhirude Romanshia?), a wish has reformed it as Brynhildr Romantia: Even If Death Do Us Apart (死が二人を別離つともブリュンヒルデ・ロマンシア, Shi ga Futari wo BetsuritsutomoBuryunhirude Romanshia?). Parting will definitely come. It doesn't deny love even in a breakup, even in betrayal. "No matter what parting comes, as long as the love held is true, I believe it is eternal." Following Passionlip's wishes, it became a power not to hate her loved ones, but a power to protect them. Truly a pure and innocent yet mature holy maiden power.[9]

DevelopmentEdit

Although Fate/EXTRA material originally stated the illegal modification performed by BB slightly altered the Noble Phantasm's name under Passionlip, Brynhildr's primary version is shown to possess exactly the same name in Fate/Grand Order. (This later becomes correct as Passionlip's Noble Phantasm has its name slightly altered to "Brynhildr Romantia: Even If Death Do Us Apart" when she was added to Fate/Grand Order.[9]) Passionlip's variation was originally designed to be a "grab and throw move" where, upon locking onto the target, they were doomed. It would have increased her defense by ten times, placing her in a state of "super armor" where she would have no worries of being damaged significantly, and she would have advanced "like a heavy tank" to devour the enemy with her claws that would have morphed into the shape of lips. Upon using too much power while clenching the claws, she would have pierced through herself and dealt a large amount of damage to herself as well as the target, destroying both.[5]
