This is a list of major locations in the Nasuverse.
Alimango Island (アリマゴ島, Arimago-shima?, localized as "Arimago Island") is a small island with a fishing village consisting of around three hundred families that appears in Fate/Zero. It is undeveloped, with dirt roads and only three or four old, beaten-up vehicles on the entire island. Father Simon runs a local church. Its name means "crab" in Filipino, and it comes from when the island was said to have contained a shrine to a deity of the sea. People left offerings to the deity, and it is said in folktales that a girl looking to feed her sick mother stole them and was divinely punished by being turned into a crab. It is said that those who eat crabs caught on the island will have any disease cured, after the story of the girl's mother finally recovering from her long illness. Far from the town in the jungle, there is a mansion that is said to be built next to the former location of the shrine. People of the town do not go near it due to legends also saying those who go near it too often will be cursed, so Norikata Emiya uses it to practice magecraft in secrecy. The entire population is killed by the Mage's Association and Holy Church after being turned into ghouls by Shirley.

The Einzbern Castle is located in Germany, in a mountain district near a certain river. Jubastacheit is an artificial intelligence made to control the Einzbern Castle, Golem Jubstacheit (ゴーレム・ユーブスタクハイト, Gōremu Yūbusutakuhaito?). It manufactures humanoid golem terminals, and Acht is the eighth generation.
The neatest district of southern Torino (トリノ, ?) of Italy, there is an elegant villa built atop a small hill and the villa is considered to be Tokiomi's secondary residence. This is the location where Kirei Kotomine, Risei Kotomine and Tokiomi Tohsaka discuss about the upcoming Fourth Holy Grail War.
Bucharest is the capital of Romania, formerly known as "Little Paris" during the early twentieth century. The bombs of the World War II, two earthquakes, and the megalomaniacal urban development of the dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu destroyed many of the building of the period. While much of the beauty was lost, many old churches and historically valuable buildings from the old city can be seen travelling on the Calea Victoriei cutting through the city from south to north. As of the Great Holy Grail War, there is a series of murders that causes one newspaper to make a joking title of "The Return of Jack the Ripper?"
Considered another wound carved into the country by the Ceaușescu regime are the "children of Ceaușescu", the destructive legacy of the regime born from its policies. Romania once outlawed contraceptives and abortions, and had attempted to force all families to have at least five children. Many youths were unable to be raised and ended up as street children who delved into lives of crime and human trafficking. While the dictatorship ended in revolution, those lives who were born could not be returned, and they were devoured and scattered by criminal organizations and people of power, surviving by turning from the prey to the predators.
It has nearly six hundred years of history, and it possesses many spiritually powerful leylines suitable for summoning Servants. Using the Stavropoleos Church, the necromancer Kairi Sisigou is best able to summon his Servant.
Sighisoara (シギショアラ, Shigishoara?) is a Romanian provincial city to the northwest of the capital Bucharest. It is the birthplace of Vlad III and his parental home is preserved. It is the closet city to Trifas outside of Yggdmillennia's influence. Closer than Bucharest, it remains a good location for the Red Faction during the Great Holy Grail War until the completion of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
It was formed in the 12th century by a settlement of Saxons, and it is a rare city that displays strong vestiges of the Middle Ages, rare for even within Europe. The old town district in particular is a precious place where buildings from the Middle Ages still remain as they were in the past. The Red Faction uses the Church on the Hill as their base initially. It is a high-up church with a famous dome-roofed staircase said to contain one hundred and seventy-two steps.
Trifas (トゥリファス, Turifasu?) is a city in Transylvania, Romania and main setting of Fate/Apocrypha. It is a small city north of Sighisoara, the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, that has acted as the base of the Yggdmillennia clan since the Middle Ages. Its citadel and part of the city are surrounded by walls built to defend against the invasion of the Turks during the Middle Ages, and they are still perfectly preserved in the modern day. Many of the city's buildings have been repeatedly repaired and reconstructed since they were built in the Middle Ages, making them no less valuable than those in Sighisoara.
The symbol of the city is a large castle upon a small hill, the Fortress of Millennia. The castle has remained under the ownership of Yggdmillennia and not once changed hands through the invasion of the Ottoman Turks, the outbreak of the Black Death, and the explosions of modern war. Despite the hardships that have befallen the city, the fortress and the clan still stand strong. They also employ menial homunculi to perform various chores and patrol the castle while wielding halberds.
The city has a population of twenty thousand, and they thrive mostly around agriculture and textiles. They live in fear of those living in the castle, and though the sights inside, the patrolling soldiers unthinkable in the modern age and statues with glowing eyes, would shock people, the residents of the city would never step inside in the first place. They are forbidden from even stepping outside of their homes whenever the lights of the citadel are lit, and with the advent of the Great Holy Grail War, the lights that had been off for a long period of time are once again bright. They can only pray for the safety of their homes and continue their daily lives.
Trifas was conceived using Sighisoara as a model, while also made so as not to be eye-catching as a tourist attraction in comparison.

Western European PlutocracyEdit
Western European Conglomerate (西欧財閥, Seiō Zaibatsu?).
Present Mountain is the place where Heinrich Zepter fled to.
Snowfield (スノーフィールド, Sunōfīrudo?) is a suburban town in western United States that is the main setting of Fate/strange fake. North of Las Vegas, it is currently a thriving city with a population of 800,000, but it was previously an area home to a scant few indigenous peoples at the beginning of the 20th century. For over one thousand years, it had been the home of Tine Chelc's people, who protected it from settlers until the government and magi joined forces to overrun them to prepare for the False Holy Grail War. Though it was an area that had very few records before then, it rapidly began to develop as a boomtown seventy years ago, and the land went through a complete transformation by the time of the 21st century.
There is a vast ravine north of the city, a dense forest, unusual in such an arid area, to the west of the city, a tract of lakes and marshes east of the city, and a vast desert unfolding south of the city. It does not contain any farmland despite being surrounded by land suited for agriculture, standing out as a strange existence from its surroundings like a "cleft." It is described by some as a town with its sights set on the future, with the correct mixture of the natural and artificial.
The central district of the town appears as grand as New York or Chicago with towering buildings and a pair of six-lane causeways, the city's primary north-south and east-west arterial roads, meeting at a large scramble intersection near the city center. Both roads seem to form a crucifix from above, extending into all four of the surrounding environments. The city hall tower stands as the tallest building, the Center Park contains a fountain and is populated by families mid-day, and the Snowfield Central Hospital is a large, white building that looks like an art museum, furnished with the finest equipment in the city and various specialists.

Great Cat's VillageEdit
Great Cat's Village (グレートキャッツビレッジ, Gurēto Kyattsu Birejji?), also called GCV and the Cat Kingdom, is the mysterious, unearthly kingdom of cats, home of NEKO Spirits like Neco-Arc. It is an underground kingdom that exists both in the world and nowhere at once, said by some to be the dream of a certain mighty cat. While its size fluctuates from village to cottage to company, it is basically a village. There is also a Great Cats Garden that has crocodiles.
It has a single military unit, Abaddon's Beret, a self-defense force composed of Neco-Arcs specifically chosen for their uncontrollable overflowing savage nature, excellent physical ability, and unmatched intelligence. Though the envy of Neco-Arcs, they are not actually that useful in battle. Neco-Arc Chaos also has his own Dark Chaos Corps.

The Shapeless Isle (形なき島, Katanaki Shima?) was the home of Stheno, Euryale, and Medusa. It was an island far beyond Oceanus, known only to the three grey witches, the Graeae. With rumors of the beautiful sisters and the monster Gorgon, many were drawn to the island. Some wished to confirm the legends of the Gorgon, some sought glory from slaying it, some were guided by an oracle's prophecy, and others equipped themselves with swords, spears, and bows and arrows to travel there without speaking of it to anyone. None of them returned or even died normally, but instead were turned to stone while alive and had their lives end in that place.
 Fate/EXTRA material - Encyclopedia: Atlas Academy [Place name], p.155
The Academy at Atlas【Location Name】
An association of Magi / Alchemists based in the Atlas Mountain Range (アトラス山脈, Atorasu Sanmyaku?) in Egypt. Also known as the Giant's Pit.
The formerly operational Magecraft Association -- or rather, one of the three primary branches of such; an institution focused upon aggregation (蓄積, chikuseki?, lit. "accumulation") and appraisal (計測, keisoku?, lit. "measurement").
Diverging from the modern practice of Alchemy (現代錬金術, Gendai Renkinjutsu?, lit. "modern Alchemy") that has since the medieval period entered the vogue, they were an organization of Alchemists that conducted inquiry (解明, kaimei, lit. "elucidation"?) into the basis of Magecraft (魔術の祖, Majutsu no So?, lit. "the forefathers / origins of Magecraft") and the Laws of the World (世界の理, Sekai no Kotowari?, lit. "the principles / rationalities of the World").
Rather than referring to them as Magi, it would be more appropriate to describe them as Prodigies (異能者, inousha?, lit. "persons of unusual ability") that treated their own flesh as "Man・Machine" (マン・マシーン, ?); that is, as vessels that existed for the purpose of laboring per the ethos (知性, chisei?, lit. "intelligence / wisdom / sapience") of "Accuracy, Strength, and Expedition."
Humans are fundamentally exceptional Calculation Engines (計算装置, keisan souchi?) that bear the capacity for motility (運動機能, undou kinou?, lit. "motility / flexibility") -- the five senses (五感, gokan?). By the aggregation (収集, shuushuu?) and analysis (解析, kaiseki?) of information (情報, jouhou?), we Humans are as sapient organisms (知的生命体, chiteki seimeitai?) that have evolved as a "workforce" with the capacity to directly address any variety of obstacles that may arise -- such was Atlas' creed (信条, shinjou?).
Oddly, the correctness of such was vindicated in the world of EXTRA, wherein Magecraft came to extinction.
The Alchemists of Atlas were destitute (乏しく, toboshiku?, lit. "destitute / poor / scarce") of Template:Thaumaturgical Circuits -- individuals who would engage not in such undertakings as would require reliance upon Thaumaturgical Energy.
Unreliant -- or rather, "incapable of relying" -- upon Thaumaturgical Energy, they were able to continue their inquiries as students of Magecraft (魔術の徒, majutsu no to?) even after the Mana Depletion (魔力枯渇, maryoku kokatsu?).
However, with the persistent dearth in the conception of children for the subsequent generation, and the successive suicides (自決死, jiketsu-shi?) of the veteran Alchemists, the Academy at Atlas met with a destruction unassociated with the Mana Depletion.
Within the Academy at Atlas, there exists at present no more than a single Homunculus. The final Alchemist of Atlas died of illness after coining (鋳造した, chuuzou-shita?) said Homunculus, letting to remain within the Cavern (洞窟, doukutsu) only her final creation.
With the vanishing of the Alchemists, this underground city (地下都市, chikatoshi?) that was complected entirely of research facilities (研究施設, kenkyuu shisetsu?) built of technologies (技術体系, gijutsu taikei?, lit. "systems of techniques") as yet unknown has become as an immense mausoleum.

Sighisoara [Place name]
The name of a real place. It is a Romanian provincial city to the northwest of the capital Bucharest, and it is where Vlad Tepes…Vlad III’s parental home is preserved. It has a long and old history, having been formed primarily as part of colonization from Germany in the 12th century. The old town district in particular is a precious place where buildings from the Middle Ages still remain as they were in the past.
Trifas was conceived using this city as a model, while also made so as not to be eye-catching as a tourist attraction in comparison.

Great Cat's Village [Place name]
The mysterious, unearthly kingdom of cats. Also known as the GCV. An underground kingdom that is both everywhere in this world, and nowhere.

I want to go to the Crocodile Garden [Technique name]
Neco Arc's killer move. J214A. She attacks horizontally by… turning into a rocket!
It seems that there may be some connection to the technique "Farewell, Ciel-sensei! Our friendship ended in the Crocodile Garden!" that appeared in Neco Arc's command list in the third character popularity poll.
Also, this is totally unrelated, but all of Neco Arc's techniques are extremely powerful. Something like the True Ancestor Beam can't be fully observed with the naked eye. Of course, this technique is no exception – its fearsome effectiveness is seriously troublesome.
Incidentally, aren't there crocodiles in the Great Cats Garden…?
 Melty Blood Act Cadenza PS2 Manual - Dictionary: Elite Neco Corps [Technique name], p.059
Elite Cat Troops [Technique name]
The Neco Arcs summoned by Neco Arc. The GCV's only military unit.
It is a self-defense force composed solely of specially chosen Neco Arcs whose overflowing savage nature, excellent physical ability, and unmatched intelligence cannot be controlled. These chosen few are known as Abaddon's Beret, and are the envy of all the Neco Arcs.
Of course, that's completely unrelated to its power as a technique. There is a high degree of randomness involved, so it's really only useful as a provocation.
Probably, this was done in order to faithfully translate the idea that even Neco Arc cannot control the Neco Arcs into game mechanics.
Also, recently there have been rumors swirling about a Dark Chaos Corps, but…?
