|Appears in:||Fate/Grand Order|
|Japanese VA:||Ayako Kawasumi|
|Character type:||Servant (Master: Protagonist)|
Lancer's identity is Artoria Pendragon, 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. 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.
In the sixth singularity of the Grand Orders, there is another Artoria called the Goddess Rhongomyniad (女神ロンゴミニアド, Megami Rongominiado?) as well as the Lion King (獅子王, Shishiō). 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.
She is from an alternate history where Bedivere never returned Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake, thus prevented her from dying. She would then be greatly changed by Rhongomyniad over time in a process of becoming a Divine Spirit.
She introduces herself as the Lion King (獅子王, Shishi-ō?).
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?).
