Lancer (ランサー, Ransā?) is a Lancer-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.



Lancer's True Name is Artoria Pendragon, King Arthur, the legendary King of Knights who controlled Britain.[1]

She manifested as Lancer due to her holy spear Rhongomyniad. She is a possibility where Artoria uses Rhongomyniad instead of Excalibur as her main weapon during her reign. Although she takes a human form, she can no longer be called a Human Heroic Spirit. Due to the properties concealed in the holy spear, she has changed or mutated into an existence closer to a Divine Spirit; a goddess if anything. Her bodily age actually grows without intervention of Excalibur. However, merely using it for ten years hasn't changed her mentality and spiritual construction too much.[1]

This version of her is a Heroic Spirit of Heavens that, at Camlann Hill, gave back the holy spear herself and returned to the land.[1]


There are various opinions about the body weight or figure from when she is a Lancer.[1]


While she has turned more rational, more collected than holy sword Artoria, her humanity has not been lost. Rather, there are now composure in her choices thanks to becoming an adult, achieving an ideal way of being as a king.[1]

She, who was summoned as a Servant in Chaldea, knows the beauty of the world. In order to retrieve the world that shines not in the far away, she will certainly fight together with the Master, wielding all the power she has.[1]


Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Camelot: The Sacred Round Table RealmEdit

Main article: Goddess Rhongomyniad

The Servant known as the Lion King has the same appearance as her.[1] She is from an alternate history where Bedivere never returned Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake.[2] Although she was not able to die when she was fated to die and, as consequence, ended up becoming a wandering ghost while retaining the Rhongomyniad. Because the "Lion King" who held onto the holy spear has completely turned into a Divine Spirit, its inner aspects are different from this version of her.[1] Unlike the Lancer Artoria summoned by Chaldea, this Lancer Artoria has become a complete Divine Spirit due to Rhongomyniad and is not a Servant at all.

Salomon: The Grand Time TempleEdit

She is amongst the Camelot Singularity Servants who assist Chaldea against the Demon Gods Pillar. Her quotes suggest this iteration of her is the Lion King from the 6th singularity.[3]


Being summoned as Lancer, she has exchanged Excalibur for her Spear, Rhongomyniad. She is always mounted in this form, her steed being her horse Dun Stallion (ドゥン・スタリオン, Dun Sutarion?).[1]
