True Archer (真アーチャー, Shin Āchā?) is the "True" Archer-class of Bazdilot Cordelion in the False Holy Grail War of Fate/strange fake. Shortly after summoning, Bazdilot greatly alters him into another form.



Archer's True Name is Heracles (ヘラクレス, Herakuresu?, Hercules), the great and noble hero of Ancient Greece.



True Archer, his mind being free of madness or the hate against the gods, is an extremely heroic individual. He holds strong morals, even going against the orders of his Master to preserve his heroism.


Fate/strange fakeEdit

Archer is summoned by Bazdilot Cordelion, a ruthless member of the Cordelion criminal family. Bazdilot questions Archer if he can kill a child, with the noble hero refusing to commit such cold deeds. Due to this, Bazdilot uses all of his Command Seals and the mud of the Grail to convert Archer into his mortal form of Avenger, where he holds incredible contempt against the gods.[1]


True Archer is likely a very powerful Heroic Spirit, as the incredibly famous Heracles. He likely possesses the Bow of Hydra and the Nine Lives.
