Caliburn: Golden Sword of the Victorious (勝利すべき黄金の剣カリバーン, also translated as Golden Sword of Assured Victory?) is the holy sword that is the symbol of the king pulled from the stone of appointment by King Arthur under the guidance of Merlin. With the words "Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone is rightwise king of all England" engraved in a golden inscription on its hilt, it became the symbol of England's king of knights once it was pulled from the stone. It looks similar to Excalibur, which she later received from the Lady of the Lake, but it is a different sword and its characteristics as a Noble Phantasm also differ. It is not as strong of a sword as Excalibur, as the swords of kings are often lowered to the role of fancy decorations due to being symbols of authority. The cost of being a dazzling sword is that its grade as a weapon is inferior to Excalibur. It was broken in a battle in which the rules of chivalry had been broken by Arthur, and she later received the new holy sword of the Lady of the Lake. Despite that, she has a stronger attachment to Caliburn.[1]

  • Saber pulling the sword from the stone
  • Saber and Shirou using the projected Caliburn

☀Merlin claimed she would "cease to be human" after taking possession of it, like a king is someone who kills everything to protect everyone. Once she pulled it from the stone, the area filled with light, becoming something inhuman and detained physical aging. Many pilots thought it was threatening, while most welcomed the immortality of his master as divine. After the sword was later destroyed Avalon given the same properties. Although it is a weapon forever lost that will never exist again, Shirou Emiya, to see the Sabre memories in your dreams, you become able to design it along the way Destiny. Due to having no real experience with projection, the weapon primarily uses the stored memories Saber throw it to attack and defend, while only pulling together Shirou. Despite being weaker than Excalibur, it is still a very strong sword able to cut through God Hand. Once used by Saber and Shirou at the same time, they are able to smash through ax-sword Berserker, cut into his body, and throw a light attack similar to Excalibur in it kills five times with a single attack (due to translation error in the game and anime was told take away seven lives). It is derived from swords with similar legends, Gram and Merodach, and if it is to face them, she would lose due to being a newer incarnation.
