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 (Alter) (アルトリア・ペンドラゴン〔オルタ〕, Arutoria Pendoragon (Oruta)?), manifested as Lancer due to her holy spear Rhongomyniad. It is also possible for her to materialize as the possibility of having been violated by the curse of the Holy Grail like this. The spear-wielding aspect of the King of Knights that persists in being heartless. She still is the same King of Knights who became a king by acquiring the sword of selection, who opposed assailing foreign enemies, monsters and occasionally even dragons and continued to fight to protect her homeland.[2]

She is also known as the King of Storms (嵐王, Ran'ō?), Leader of the Wild Hunt.

Compared to her Lancer counterpart, this Artoria rejects the Divine Spirit transformation process of Rhongomyniad, opting to remain as "Artoria Pendragon" rather than be known as "Goddess Rhongomyniad".


Differing from her younger appearance in life and as a Saber-class Servant, Lancer has a "figure that differs 'in portion.'" There are said to be many opinions on both her figure and weight as a Lancer, possibly caused by her eternally youthful body growing "in portion" due to the holy spear being possessed instead of Excalibur and Avalon or due to the spear itself causing "a portion" of the body to grow.[2]


Lancer is said to be the same King of Knights as normal, possessing the same mentality regardless of having exchanged her sword for the holy spear.[2]

Even upon manifesting as Alter, she will surely become of assistance to the Master in regards the restoration of human history.[2]
