Notable Attacks / Techniques:

Arondight: The Unfading Light of the Lake: Lancelot's truest Noble Phantasm, which seals his other two and increases all of his parameters once drawn, on top of doubling the success rate of his saving throws. Arondight is also a dragon-slaying weapon, making it extra effective against those with a Draconic attribute. After Lancelot used it to slay his fellow knights to rescue Guinevere, it lost its status as a holy sword, and his madness ultimately stains it black.


Lancelot using Arondight Overload in Fate/Grand Order

  • Arondight - Overload: Breaking All Restraints - Overloaded Light of the Lake: Lancelot overloads Arondight with his mana, allowing his magical energy to leak out of it, before slashing at them and releasing it all. It is close to a sword skill, and the magical energy is intentionally kept within the blade until it makes contact with Lancelot's opponent, releasing a burst of blue light comparable to the surface of a lake.
