Knight of Honor: A Knight Does Not Die with Empty Hands (騎士は徒手にて死せず, ?) is an ability that is the embodiment of the incident where Lancelot was forced to fight Phelot unarmed and proved his fighting prowess by claiming victory with an elm branch. Once Berserker grabs hold of anything that can be even remotely conceptualized as a weapon by his own recognition with his gauntlets and he recognizes that he wishes to wield it, it instantly gains the property of "becoming his Noble Phantasm." It allows for something as worthless as a piece of scrap iron to be turned into a demonic spear or sword capable of damaging Servants and striking legendary weapons. It can only be activated for objects recognized as "this is a weapon", so he could use a steel chair if he happened to be skilled in wrestling. He couldn't utilize an aircraft carrier, as its role as weapon transportation is higher than that as a weapon, making it not count as such to him. The ability is completely sealed along with For Someone's Glory once Arondight is drawn by Berserker.
He can make use of weaponry regardless of how it was created or its time of origin, allowing him to take control of anything from legendary weapons to modern weapons and machinery. He also shows potential to corrupt more abstract weapons like Invisible Air, which is closer to magecraft than a true weapon. The ability soaks the affected items with Berserker's prana, muddled with bloodthirstiness and hatred, that permeates from his hands. They slowly change as they are tainted with his black color as dark lines invade the item and multiply like the veins on a leaf. The items, covered in a spiderweb pattern of black veins, look alien and repulsive compared to their normal forms. The items will be advanced to D rank Noble Phantasms, and if he takes another Servant's Noble Phantasm of a superior rank, its quality will be maintained while under Berserker's control. He is able to naturally control any weapon that he wields as if it were an extension of his arm and a favorite weapon with which he specialized in and polished his skills for many years.
The strength of the weapons is great enough that they can easily clash with Excalibur repeatedly despite normally being mundane objects that would be cut like butter by a Noble Phantasm. The weapons will stay under control for a brief moment after he lets off his grip, allowing them to be used as deadly projectiles. They are weak against abilities that cut through prana circulation, repelling Berserker's prana and returning the fake Noble Phantasms to nothing but bundles of iron. Gae Dearg is the archenemy of the ability, allowing Lancer to cut through such weapons with ease. Gilgamesh also cleaves through one with an unnamed giant sickle without any issue.
Modern weapons turned into Noble Phantasms will be greatly strengthened and have modified capabilities. Guns, while deadly to humans, are not a threat to Servants no matter their firing speed or the size of caliber of the bullets. They are capable of evading them without difficulty, and some even have the skills necessary to deflect shots back with their weapons. Berserker, turning them into Noble Phantasms, makes them into fierce magecraft military equipment that turns the balance in power. Upgrading them to the category of Noble Phantasm shows a great difference in power between the weapon types of "sword" and "firearm", making it difficult to attack.
The bullets, soaked in his prana, are lethal to Servants, so even one hit would be able to spell the end for them. Bullets traveling faster than the speed of sound are unable to surpass the speed of a Servant's weapon, but their rate of fire leaves them only able to parry. The power of the bullets becomes unimaginably destructive compared to normal, allowing stray bullets to tear large holes in cement and concentrated fire to reduce a small truck into an unrecognizable mess of iron chips in a matter of moments.
The ability allows for potentially unlimited weapons as long as there are objects, as even if a weapon is destroyed by an ability able to counter Knight of Honor, he can simply remove and keep using an already affected part or pick up the remains to once again use them as a weapon. He can give up the weapon at any time, returning it to its natural state, and immediately switch to another without any trouble. The ability is a natural counter to Gilgamesh's Gate of Babylon, which makes use of a large number of projectile Noble Phantasms. Berserker is able to freely catch and wield the weapons shot at him as if they were extensions of his arms, and use them to deflect volleys of weapons capable of completely destroying the surrounding area. He freely catches swords, halberds, battle axes, and exchanges them for more powerful weapons all while not receiving a single scratch.
The ability allows Berserker to make use of an the remains a two meter street light pole like a spear, and he later uses the even smaller remains of the pole as a longsword without any inconveniences. He is able to take control of a twenty-meter F15 fighter jet while standing on top of it, giving him complete control of it and its armaments, four AIM-7F/M Sparrows, four AIM-9 Sidewinders, and 940 rounds for the 20mm M61 Vulcan auto-cannon capable of firing 12000 rounds per minute, without having to physically pilot it. The ability also greatly enhances the capabilities of firearms, allowing him to use submachine guns given to him by Kirei Kotomine, and a two hundred kilogram, six-barreled cylindrical rotary cannon taken from a jet with greatly accelerated speed.
The F15 is completely corrupted by his prana, which transforms it into a monstrous form capable of far surpassing its normal capabilities. He is skilled enough to dogfight with Gilgamesh's Vimana, which surpasses the laws of physics, perform stunts like an Immelmann turn and full vertical descent, and dodge numerous tracking projectiles from the Gate of Babylon. Its twin turbofan engine gives a monstrous roar while surging with his power, allowing it to writhe its ailerons and flaps similarly to a living creature in order to pull a maneuver that is almost aerodynamically impossible. It is capable of performing barrel rolls which produce intense G's that rupture the organs of the pilot, Captain Ogi, and instantly kill him. Every single round of the M61, which would normally be easy for a Servant to dodge and reflect, is now lethal. The twenty-six pound Sparrow missiles are transformed into weapons of an entirely different caliber, and the electronic radar-guides in the missiles become magic weapons that control the front stabilizers to chase the subject of Berserker's hatred like hounds. The Flare Dispenser, designed to shoot out decoy heat sources to throw off heat-sensing weapons, has be metamorphosed into a cannon that shoots an innumerable amount of tracking incendiary weapons capable of downing the Vimana.

Questions 2: What's the limit of Berserker's ability to "turn any object into Noble Phantasm"? Will it work on a battleship? Why not just hijack a computer and become an existence like Sky*et... please put a stop to my overflowing dreams. [ Kyoto · Musashibō-san ]
Nasu: In theory it's limited to objects that are weapons. An aircraft carrier's role as weapon transportation is ranked higher than it being a weapon, so it shouldn't be counted as a weapon. Something like that. What's your opinion on this, Uro-san?
Uro: For Berserker, the Noble Phantasm can only be activated for things he recognizes as "this is a weapon." In that case, if he is skilled in wrestling, can he... turn a steel chair into a Noble Phantasm?(Ｑ：バーサーカーの「掴んだもの全てが宝具になる」力の限界範囲はどのくらい
