Kazıklı Bey (カズィクル・ベイ, Kazikuru Bei?) is the Noble Phantasm of Vlad III. The Noble Phantasm is a sublimation of the legend about the impaled soldiers shown to Mehmed II.

  • Triumph of the Impaling Lord (串刺し公の凱旋, Kushizashi Kō no Gaisen?)

During his reign, the punishment of impalement for the general masses was not an unusual penalty in the Northern Mediterranean area that included the Balkan Peninsula. With the occasion of Vlad's second enthronement as the Lord of Wallachia, he felt indignation upon seeing the figure of the nobles of his own country excessively repeating acts of depravity and corruption. During this time of his reign as monarch of Wallachia, Vlad instituted a number of somewhat oppressive and punitive policies aimed at the lower levels of the nobility whom Vlad felt had seriously undermined and destabilized his country with their excessive corruption and political maneuverings. Viewing these nobles as the source of the country's ruin, he carried out an unprecedented great enforcement of discipline, and in addition to laws designed to curtail their excesses, what became the keystone of that enforcement was the punishment of impalement towards the nobles, the amount of punishment carried out reaching an unprecedented number among the noble classes alone. It was a shocking reality for Wallachia, which was rigidly segmented into nobles and the masses, and there was nobody among the population that could not feel his severity and dreadfulness. While many believed he was simply trying to reduce the number of rivals and opponents to his rule, Vlad was shockingly ruthless in his approach to justice, targeting commoners and the upper-class with equal viciousness. His kingdom became a land of horrors. Thereafter, impalement became his favorite stunt, and in 1459, there were also deeds such as the impaling of an emissary of the Turks while he was still alive, surviving on the stake for several days before finally succumbing.[1][2] According to records reported to the Vatican, the number of humans that he impaled during his career is said to have reached 100,000 people, which does not even include the individuals from enemy nations that were executed.

There are three different incarnations of him, Lancer of Fate/Extra, Lancer of Black of Fate/Apocrypha, and Berserker of Fate/Grand Order, each possessing a version of Kazıklı Bey with a different title and different effects.

The Fortress of ImpalementEdit

English | Japanese

“Wife, witness this blood spilt in sacrifice, so that it may appease thy thirst! Fortress of Impalement, Kazıklı Bey!!”

Lancer, Fate/Extra

English | Japanese

"An incarnation of evil is worthy of the retribution of vice!"
"Kazıklı Bey!”

Lancer, Fate/Grand Order

Kazıklı Bey: The Fortress of Impalement (串刺城塞カズィクル・ベイ, Kushiza JōsaiKazikuru Bei?) is the weapon of Lancer of Fate/Extra. It is the Noble Phantasm that is synonymous with the Servant who was called "Kazıklı Voyvoda", which means the "Impaler Prince". The Noble Phantasm was also derived from his posthumous title – Vlad the Impaler. It is Dracula's torture of curses and iron hammers released from the demonic spear, a torturous demonic castle (Drakulya) of curse and punishment, the attack affecting all enemy units that deals heavy damage and curses them.[1][2][4] Its true value is only displayed in one vs. many situations rather than one-on-one.[2] The pain the target receives increases in proportion to their sins of immorality and depravity found in their souls as a fitting "blow of justice" and divine punishment.[1] It summons countless magic spears and polearms of various shapes and sizes from the surrounding terrain.[2][4] The target is surrounded and eventually skewered by a massive spear, followed by Lancer hurling his personal weapon at the target, passing judgement on the enemy.[4] The attack ignores the targets' defenses within the game, and it debuffs them with "Sacrifice", which deals damage to the target after a turn. Also, as a hidden component, Kazıklı Bey’s damage is increased when used on people who qualify as “enforcement targets.” If the enemy has committed the crimes of escape from prison, immorality, or violence, Kazıklı Bey’s destructive power increases against them, the enemies being the subjects of his purging.[2][4] There is no extra damage when used against Hakuno Kishinami because they have no criminal record.[2]

The Lord of ExecutionEdit

English | Japanese

“Come, savages who trample over my territory! It’s time to discipline you!"
"I’ll turn my compassion and rage into red-hot stakes and skewer you all!"
"And these stakes are not limited, but truly infinite, so despair—"
"and gorge on your own blood! Kazıklı Bey!”

Lancer of Black

Kazıklı Bey: The Lord of Execution (極刑王カズィクル・ベイ, Kyokkei-ŌKazikuru Bei?) is the weapon of Lancer of Black of Fate/Apocrypha. As that which shares its name with its owner who was called as such, out of fear from how he grimly massacred all those who opposed him, it is the reproduction of the historical event of Vlad III having skewered twenty thousand Ottoman Turk soldiers. The event, reproduced as a "most fearsome Noble Phantasm", is an act that was considered impossible for a human being to commit, nothing short of madness as an "elaborate display of military force that none could match." As it is not a holy sword or divine spear, single stakes prove insufficient and worthless as a Noble Phantasm, unable to produce much destructive power or speed enough to individually provide much trouble to Servants. The true characteristic of the ability is its extraordinary quantity, allowing him to summon approximately twenty thousand stakes that can even overpower Heroic Spirits. While there are those Noble Phantasms of the Anti-Army and Anti-Fortress ranks that can kill hundreds and thousands of enemies at once, it is one of the few able to kill over ten thousand people.

Upon its activation, the ground noticeably shakes, bringing about long and narrow stakes, each several meters in length, from the ground that sprout up "as if trying to reach the heavens." Weaker enemies are unable to react as they are pierced one-by-one, skewering them and hoisting them high-up in the same manner as those who had in life been pierced and left until their remains rotted to become only skeletons, while Servants are able to dodge and destroy them individually to avoid being pierced. Although they are only ordinary stakes, they can be summoned forth upon Lancer's command and them suddenly appearing from the ground makes them difficult to dodge. They can chase after retreating enemies as if predicting their movements, sprout out from already destroyed stakes, and while they target the legs of enemies on the ground, they can also prepare for circumstances like falling enemies. He can easily summon five hundred stakes in three seconds, and although he can only summon forth a maximum of two thousand stakes at any one time, he can limitlessly keep producing them so long as he has energy. Acting as a "force of twenty thousand", it proves itself beyond even the capability of a Heroic Spirit, especially those who are Servants who must save magical energy as their lifeforce.

It is a Noble Phantasm deployable only within a range of one kilometer in his marked domain set up by his Demonic Defender of the State Skill. He has great control over their deployment, allowing him to control them with only a single finger to either attack, defend or regulate their movements while maintaining distance from the enemy.[6] Comparable to a "muddy stream of stakes", they chase the enemy with only minor direction from him, remaining as a physical barrier that eliminates free ground and makes evasion less likely with passage of time. The sight of the pikes imposes a curse-like psychological effect, destabilizing an opponent's mental condition with oppressive anxiety or fear.[7] They can precisely target a group of enemies, or he can send all of them directly at enemy Servants. He can stab through enemies to entrap even the strongest of Servants and precisely avoid killing blows if he should wish. He can easily have himself or his mount walk atop them without difficulty, and used for defense, he can accurately have them sprout in front of him to block projectiles like protective walls. Though the power of each individual stake is low, they deal additional continuous damage through “penetration” for some time after even one of them is stabbed into the enemy, the damage from the stakes piling up.[6] In the anime adaption, it is shown that Lancer of Black can also cause the stakes to fly out of the ground, able to have them move even throughout the air as he controls them with hand gestures, and assail the enemy from any direction while in his territory in a very similar fashion to Unlimited Blade Works.

He has a spear he personally equips himself with to chase after vulnerable enemies and enact the effect of being "skewered" if it should pierce them. If his spear hits the enemy even once, and as long as they’re within his territory, it will cause stakes to be created from within the enemy’s body and pierce them from inside out.[6][8] Lancer of Red is able to match a thousand stakes by himself with his spear, burn eight hundred with his flames, and block two thousand with his armor, but he is pierced by Lancer's spear three times. The true effect of the ability is not to "create stakes", but rather that the Noble Phantasm itself is "stakes stabbed into the enemy." Once the enemy has received an attack within his territory, it matters not how much the body of the enemy is fortified because the stakes manifest in the state of "already having pierced the enemy." Originating from the enemy's heart and piercing outward, there is no way to avoid them with speed because the attack manifests as "already ending." After having been pierced three times previously, Lancer of Red is stabbed instantly by three stakes from the inside without his armor being able to nullify the damage, and it can be said even the greatest hero will have no way to resist while stabbed with his stakes. When this happens, nothing can be done, and the enemy will end up suffering in excruciating pain until they die.[6]

He is able to utilize Kazıklı Bey outside of his territory, but he is only able to produce them from his body. As they are strengthened by his fame boost, leaving Romania, like when inside the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, will cause them to reduce in power and sharpness. Using Legend of Dracula seals the Noble Phantasm, but the vampire is able to produce similar stakes.

Bloodstained King DemonEdit

English | Japanese

“Dedicate that blood. That is your life."
"I will dedicate here my human life that is smeared in blood."
"Kazıklı Bey!!”


Kazıklı Bey: Bloodstained King Demon (血塗れ王鬼カズィクル・ベイ, Chimamire-Ō OniKazikuru Bei?) is the Noble Phantasm of Berserker. A Noble Phantasm that possess a different name in another Class.[9] His weapons are the "stakes" he shoots out from his body, the stakes of which are generated inside his body.[9][11] Other than wood, the material properties of the stakes also include bones, flesh, shadows, hair, etc. It is also possible to take in objects that are within shooting range and turn them into stakes.[9][10] The original Noble Phantasm is a sublimation of the legend about the impaled soldiers shown to Mehmed II, thus treated as an Anti-Army Noble Phantasm. In the above case, the range is overwhelmingly wide and is even possible to combine and manipulate countless spikes. Although this Noble Phantasm does not go that far, it still has enough destructive power to destroy a single Servant.[9]

Unlike his other abilities and Noble Phantasms, which are normally sealed, this variant of Kazıklı Bey is still usable despite Legend of Dracula being active.
