“Oh, I see, I see! Then let’s have her meet the man she both dearly loves and hates! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player. That struts and frets his hour upon the stage.”

The Globe: The King's Men (国王一座, Kokuō Ichiza?) is a Noble Phantasm designed for Shakespeare in Fate/complete material IV but was later discarded from his design in Fate/Apocrypha. It is Shakespeare's theatrical company, which was patronized by King James I. It permits him to accurately assume the aspect of another individual, passing scrutiny while disguised even if he interacts with those to whom the personage he portrays is well-known. It is used for the purposes of social engineering.
He possesses the ability to use his "theatrical troupe" in Fate/Apocrypha, but it isn't shown to be classified as either a skill or a Noble Phantasm listed on his status sheet. Summoning a simple wooden puppet by speaking a command, he is able to accurately overlay it with the image of Victor Frankenstein, bringing about an "impossible miracle", commanding it to act in a way to bring about great confusion to the mind of Berserker of Black while he leaves the area. Showing her a smile he had never shown in life, attempting to have her stop fighting, and about to grant her wish of being shown the love of a parent, she suffers great mental anguish and attacks it in fury, understanding that it is some kind of fake. Although it initially reacts surprised to the attack and takes damage and bleeds like a regular human, the corpse eventually fades away and is shown to have been shattered into woodchips.
