Second Steed Edit
I wonder if Rabicano, Astolfo's other steed, will appear in Apocrypha. From the sound of him, he'd be pretty epic to see.
"-and rides upon a horse named Rabicano. This magical horse is made of hurricane and flame, feeds on air and it treads so lightly that it doesn't leave footprints in the sand, and when it runs at full speed it can run faster than an arrow."
Magic Binding Book Edit
With the problem of having forgotten the True Name of the Noble Phantasm, does that mean Astolfo can't utilize it, like Medea can't utilize Argon Coin due to lack of skill? Or do we not know yet? Zahadrin (talk) 04:17, February 14, 2013 (UTC)
Not necessarily. It's likely lost some effectiveness in having lost it's real name, but Kintaro would have used his Phantasm under a false name. And technically all the weapons Gilgamesh uses are nameless. Even those that signify him, Ea and Enkidu, were just named according to his whim. Hawkeye2701 (talk) 06:44, February 15, 2013 (UTC)

New Master Edit
I found some info online that his master is now Sieg.
Lock this page, pleaseEdit
Random users, mostly anonymous ones, are constantly passing by, changing the gender of Astolfo to Female. Are they uncomfortable with the concept of traps? I don't know and I don't care.
What I care though, is the integrity of this fan encyclopedia. Please mods, admins, lock the page.
Well to be honest, I'm not 100% sure of Astolfo's gender because (s)he is explicitly referred to using only female gender pronouns in the official Netflix subtitles of the first half of the Fate/Apocrypha anime (I still haven't watched the second half)... but then I guess that might just be down to the translation.

- Is it with everybody, or just Jeanne? Either they are dumb, or they are going the extra mile for the reveal of Jeanne mistaking him as a girl and freaking out over seeing him nude. EGGS (talk) 10:52, April 8, 2018 (UTC)
I don't recall anyone besides jeanne and sieg in the first half using female pronouns to describe Astolfo. As well an unofficial translation of the novel, FateApocrypha.wordpress.com, makes note that Jeanne does use female pronouns for Astolfo. Also there is a jeanne seeing rider nude freakout scene with sieg's reponse the next day being:"to think Ruler had no idea".
