There are cases when a Griffin, a Monstrous Beast, reproduces with a mare, which would normally be its food. What’s born as a result from this is the Monstrous Beast known as a Hippogriff (ヒポグリフ, Hipogurifu?), which has the upper body of an eagle and the lower body of a horse. However, it is an impossible creature which normally should not exist. This is because it should be impossible for a child to be born between a Griffon and a horse, which are predator and prey. The Hippogriff existed only as a hypothetical and philosophical symbol.[1] It is inferior in rank to a Griffon from the Age of Gods.

Otherworldly Phantom HorseEdit

Rider, Fate/Grand Order

Hippogriff: Otherworldly Phantom Horse (この世ならざる幻馬ヒポグリフ, Kono Yo Narazaru Maboroshi BaHipogurifu?) is the favored mount used by Astolfo. Astolfo secured Hippogriff from the evil magus Atlante.[3] Though his various legends tell of him riding on the backs of mounts like a griffin and the famous Rabicano, the Hippogriff is particularly famous among them. A Hipppogriff appears in the story of "Orlando Furioso" (The Frenzy of Roland), where Astolfo and his comrades also appear. This story includes the theme of "The Hippogriff makes an appearance here, so no matter how strange it may seem, there is nothing that is truly impossible". In "Orlando Furioso", Astolfo even goes to the Moon in order to save Roland.[1]

Astolfo claims that it boasts great speed, and its demolishing attack as it charges is equal to an A-rank physical attack. The true power of the Hippogriff takes advantage of its "impossible existence" nature and amplify it, allowing it to perform short bursts of dimensional shift continually. That dimension is the home of the Phantasmal Species, where only beings that are purely non-physical souls can go to. It is the Reverse Side of the World, which the Hippogriff, when summoned as a Noble Phantasm, can never reach even if it can temporarily glimpse it. That dimension is the home of the Phantasmal Species, where only beings that are purely non-physical souls can go to.[1] This feature allows both the mount and its rider to be non-observable and immune to damage for a short time within this world. However it also drain prana rapidly, equal to that of an A-rank noble phantasm.
