Mystery (神秘, Shinpi?) is a sliver of power of many different types that comes from the Root.

It is the source of all supernatural phenomena such as Magecraft or ESP, and beings such as True Ancestors, Dead Apostles, Servants, Spiritual Bodies, as well as Phantasmal Species show signs of Mystery.[1][2][3] Mystery accumulates over time and grows stronger with age.

OverviewEdit

If two different types of Mysteries collide with one another, the stronger Mystery will overwhelm the weaker one.[4] It is through this law that Lugh Beowulf is able to remain invincible against modern magecraft; because he has 3,000 years' worth of Mystery, which is far more than any modern magecraft has, he is able to simply ignore any effects that magecraft would have on him.

However, this does not necessarily mean that the user of the stronger Mystery will be stronger than his opponent. For example, for Heroic Spirits, it is usually the case that a Heroic Spirit of the Age of the Gods will have a higher Mystery, but a Heroic Spirit of the Age of Man will have higher fame due to clarity in history. There are, however, exceptions to this rule, such as with Achilles.

Certain items that have a long history and age can also show signs of Mystery, as in the case of the centuries-old katana that the Ryougi possess, Kanesada Kuji. If they are severely damaged, however, they will lose all the Mystery they have accumulated.[5]

It is also possible for a human's body to reach the level of a Mystery, such as with Shiki Ryougi.[6]
