Fate/Extra CCC Fox TailEdit
BB-chan's Counterattack/Let's Meet in The Digital Ocean!Edit
Saber possesses the ability to alter her body, allowing her to alter her normal appearance to hide her ears and tail and also take on an appearance similar to BB and Sakura. She has an ability to charm others through her Mystic Eyes. She possesses three Japanese swords of different designs, and wields all three at once in battle. One sword is used for direct combat, while the two other float around her and attack at command. The one she wields in her right hand is a regular sword with a pommel and single tassel with an orb, Kenmyouren. The sword floating to her left is completely silver sword with a single tassel, Shoutouren. The sword floating to her right is a completely golden sword with two tail-like tassels, Daitsuuren.
She can use them in a number of ways, either fighting with all three swords up close to try to overwhelm the opponent, use the floating swords as long range weapons to distract the opponent and then rush in for a close range attack with the third, or bring all three swords in front of her to block an attack. The golden sword can be launched at an opponent with enough power to gouge a large hole in their chest. Her first Noble Phantasm, Heavenly Demon Rain, uses the golden sword and a small charm with the same tassels that float into the air and produce numerous copies of the sword. Her second Noble Phantasm is her silver sword, Blessing of Wisdom.
Her golden sword, Daitsuuren, is capable of transforming into elemental attacks due to its legend. It is able to use Suiren to become a blast of water and Rouran to become a tempest of wind. It is also known to be transform into fire. However, it takes some time for Daitsuuren to return to its sword form before being able to be used as another elemental attack.
