Nine Lives: The Shooting Hundred Heads (射殺す百頭ナインライブス, Ikorosu HyakutōNain Raibusu?, "One Hundred Arrow Strikes" in Fate/unlimited codes) is the most trusted of all of Heracles's Noble Phantasms. It is not utilized during the Fifth Holy Grail War because he lacks the motor skills to use it while in the Berserker class, but he proves capable of utilizing it in the Grand Order conflicts. It originally had the form of the bow and arrows used to simultaneously exterminate the one hundred heads of the Hydra, an immortal nine-headed serpent, that would grow back no matter how many times they were cut down.[1]Upon slaying the Hydra, he became able to utilize techniques that emulate the ability of the Noble Phantasm with other weapons, transforming it into an all-purpose Noble Phantasm capable of adapting and changing how it appears depending on the target and circumstances of its use.

Regardless of whether it is delivered with a bow, large sword, shield, spear, or axe, the technique boasts power on the level of Noble Phantasms. In essence, it is “a high speed attack consisting of nine consecutive strikes, as swift as if the attacks are overlapping.” It changes form depending on the target, such as the Anti-Unit Nine Lives Blade Works with a series of slashes and the anti-phantasm beast skill that discharges nine dragon-like homing lasers at the enemy.[2] The skill can be called a style of its own that has a nature similar to Cú Chulainn's Gae Bolg: Barbed Spear that Pierces with Death, a technique that is part of Gae Bolg, as Heracles' technique shares name with the original Noble Phantasm. The ability would be best suited for the Saber class even though the Archer class is the most suitable to Heracles. The variation utilized by Berserker in Fate/unlimited codes and Fate/Grand Order shows him close on the opponent, begin a series of powerful slashes that quickly increase in speed, and hit the enemy a total of one hundred times, with the final strike being a jumping slash that smashes the opponent into the ground.

The world of Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA features Nine Lives as the Include feature of the Berserker Class Card, but the martial ability of the technique is lost. The only thing brought forth is Berserker's axe-sword, which can not be wielded without his strength. Illya utilizes it in the air to drop down at the opponent.

Transliteration: Ikorosu Hyakutō
Owner: Shirou Emiya

Nine Lives Blade Works: The Shooting Hundred Heads (射殺す百頭ナインライブズブレイドワークス, Ikorosu HyakutōNain Raibusu Bureido Wākusu?) is a variation of Nine Lives used by Shirou Emiya upon projecting the technique from Berserker and using it with Berserker's axe-sword.[3][4] Analyzing and projecting the axe-sword and copying Berserker's monstrous strength, Shirou uses Nine Lives Blade Works to attack the corrupted Berserker with a pummeling, high speed series of eight strikes. He targets and slashes the upper arm, collarbone, windpipe, temple, diaphragm, rib, testicles, and thighs simultaneously at "godspeed" faster than the speed of sound. These eight strikes destroy eighty percent of Berserker's body, but that is still not enough to stop his charge. When Berserker is halted by Illya's presence, Shirou has time to perform a lance-like thrust through the heart, ending the battle that lasted merely an instant.
