"Light is at the other end of the world -conquer! Via Expugnatio: Distant Trampling Domination!"
Gordius Wheel: Wheel of Heaven's Authority (神威の車輪, ?) is a large antique war chariot with two prows that is led by two Divine Bulls. Its dimensions are greater than that of an average truck and it has two large, curved sickles on its sides used to demolish surrounding obstacles and hurl the debris at enemies. Rather than touching the ground, the bulls and the chariot travel atop lightning strikes, manifestations of Zeus, allowing it to also move through the air by traveling on the lightning. They create thunderous sounds and webs of lightning with each "stomp" as they travel, and each lightning strike generates the amount of prana Saber or Lancer would use in an attack that utilized every ounce of their strength.
The bulls, which Rider calls the "Children of Zeus", were originally an offering to Zeus from the king Gordius, but Alexander claimed them by cutting the reins with his sword. The reputation of this act apparently defined him being of the Rider class. The chariot is summoned by Rider by cleaving the air with his sword of the Cypriots, much like the way he cut the reins in the legends, in order to open up a rift in the empty space resembling a gaping mouth. With a thunderous roar and a tremor, the chariot emerges from the rift into the world. The bulls' charge is capable of reaching over four hundred kilometers per hour, not slowing at all while the scythes easily cut through trees and still only slightly losing acceleration while tearing large chunks of concrete and asphalt. He is able to keep the noise from being emitted while traveling to avoid detection by ordinary humans, but it still gives off a large amount of prana that is detectable to Servants.
The true Noble Phantasm is the actual trampling attack used by the chariot, Via Expugnatio: Distant Trampling Domination (遥かなる蹂躙制覇, Haruka Naru Juurin Seiha?). The damage is decided by two factors, damage from the eight strikes from the hooves of the bulls and the damage from being struck by the wheels of the chariot, with both physical damage and the effects of the lightning strikes taking effect with each attack roll. If the target is not strong enough and fails a strength check, additional damage will also be dealt. The basic attack was enough to easily cripple Berserker, and the power rises even more significantly after Rider calls out its true name. Its speed is also very significant, reducing a distance of one hundred meters to zero the instant after its activation, almost matching the speed with which Excalibur is activated. Waver compares its destructive power to that of a strategic bomber, predicting that it can easily turn the entire Shinto area into scorched earth if Rider was allowed to go on a rampage for less than an hour.
