Rider (ライダー, Raidā?) is a Rider-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.



Rider's True Name is Edward Teach (エドワード・ティーチ, Edowādo tīchi?), better known as Blackbeard (黒髭, Kurohige?). Possibly the most famous pirate in the world, the popular concept of a pirate was based upon this scoundrel.[2]


“Now, the great Blackbeard makes his passage!”
—Edward Teach

It is uncertain whether Edward Teach is his real name, and his background from before becoming a pirate also has not been made clear yet. Immediately after the end of the Age of Discovery, the Golden Age of Piracy opened its curtains. If you plunder a ship that prosper with colonial trade, a huge fortune can be obtained; Edward Teach gave his first cry in such an age. He made his way in the world as a pirate and built a great fleet in the blink of an eye. The name of the vessel he embarks is "Queen Anne's Revenge". It has been said that not only common sailors, but even other pirates feared Blackbeard. There were fuses weaved within several places of that rich beard; those blazing eyes were like the goddess of hell itself; or so it was said. Even his subordinates feared him as an incarnation of the devil. He ruled the Caribbean sea, intoxicated himself with booze, booty, and wenches, and amassed a massive fortune.[2]


During ups and downs, Blackbeard's pirate fleet was gradually cornered. Having received a surprise attack from the army, Blackbeard and his few remaining subordinates made their resolve and met them in battle. It has been said that, even after receiving twelve sword cuts and five shots, he continued to fight with an expression of rage, but finally lost his strength and collapsed while reloading a gun.[2]



  • The Glory of the Past (在りし日の栄光, ?)

Blackbeard is now a splendid all-round otaku.[2] While he can be violent towards his subordinates without warning, he also possesses the bravery to savagely charge at a forest of swords and rain of bullets.[1]


Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Okeanos: The Four Sealed Seas of the EndEdit

Blackbeard appears as the initial antagonist in the "Okeanos" Singularity, summoned in the endless sea created by the Holy Grail. His subordinates are Anne Bonny and Mary Read, Eric Bloodaxe, and Hector, as well as his own pirate crew aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge. Blackbeard used the Holy Grail he received from Hector to summon the Servants that aid him and developed an obsession for the goddess Euryale, who he wished to capture.

Blackbeard's ship eventually encounters the ship of Francis Drake, aboard which Ritsuka, Mash, Asterios and Euryale reside. They engage in a battle, in which Blackbeard's forces gain the upper hand, but Drake's ship manages to escape, with Blackbeard pursuing them. When they meet again, Drake's forces manage to turn the battle around, with the help of Artemis and Orion. Blackbeard fights against Drake and Mash, but is defeated by the two. After his defeat, Hector kills him, having secretly been only using Blackbeard to capture Euryale for Jason.

Salomon: The Grand Time TempleEdit

Blackbeard is one of the "Okeanos" Singularity Servants summoned to aid Ritsuka.

His Riding skill has been lost due to "Voyager of the Storm".[1] Honor of Pirates (海賊の誉れ, Kaizoku no homare?) is a unique Skill derived from a pirate's peculiar sense of values. Low ranking Mental Pollution, Bravery and Battle Continuation and others have been combined. While he can be violent towards his subordinates without warning, he also possesses the bravery to savagely charge at a forest of swords and rain of bullets.[1] His Noble Phantasm is Queen Anne's Revenge.
