Rider of "Red" ("赤"のライダー, "Aka" no Raidā?) is the Rider-class Servant of the Red Faction in the Great Holy Grail War of Fate/Apocrypha.



Rider is Achilles (アキレウス, Akireusu?), one of the famous heroes in the Trojan Wars. He is the son of Thetis and Peleus. He is also a former pupil to Chiron.


He is described as being broad-minded and audacious, while thinking little of kings which makes him terribly incompatible with Assassin of Red. He once ignored the requests of a King he disliked, only setting out and taking up arms for a fallen comrade. Due to he and Archer being from the same lands, Assassin believes that he would no doubt be making advances on her while on their way to assist Berserker.

He wishes to fulfill the vow he made with his mother, "live like a hero and die like a hero".


He was not part of the designs for the original canceled online game project. He was planned by Kinoko Nasu and Takashi Takeuchi, Ototsugu Konoe was responsible for the character design.



  • Achilles fighting Chiron
  • The Red Faction on top of Hanging Gardens of Babylon.

After Caster notifies Berserker where Black Team has made their base, Archer is sent off to provide support, and Rider follows as well. Sometime after Berserker has begun his seige, a battle starts between Rider and Archer of Black, as Chiron is the only one who can harm Rider. Rider grins, and accepts the challenge of facing his former Mentor.


Rider of Red is seen as one of two Servants of the Red Team to have unparalleled strength, the other being Lancer of Red. His strength is even comparable to Vlad the Impaler, even in Romania, as he is a genuine Hero of the World. Rider has been blessed by the Olympus gods with the curse of invulnerability, which has the ability to disable attacks from anyone who is not a holder of a higher Divinity ranking or the act from a friendly actions.

He can summon a chariot drawn by 3 divine horses. He has been shown wielding a spear Weapon.
