Can you keep up with me? Chronos Rose!
~ Assassin using his Noble Phantasm


Assassin (アサシン, Asashin) is one of the Assassin-class Servants the Protagonist can summon in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.

Assassin's True Name is EMIYA (エミヤ), Kiritsugu Emiya. He is an assassin incarnated as an agent of the Counter Force, but his original self is not a Heroic Spirit. Although he was an assassin who killed many people, his existence is not engraved in the Throne of Heroes. He is one of the “imitation Heroic Spirits” referred to as Counter Guardians, and never would have existed in proper human history. Yet, something now threatens to destroy the foundation of human history itself. He exists as a hypothetical possibility only in Grand Order.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Noble Phantasm

Chronos Rose FGO

Chronos Rose: Pick Ye Rosebuds While Ye May

  • Chronos Rose: Pick Ye Rosebuds While Ye May: (時のある間に薔薇を摘めクロノス・ローズ, Kuronosu Rōzu: Toki no Aru Aida ni Bara wo Tsume) is the Innate Time Control ability of Kiritsugu Emiya sublimated as the Noble Phantasm of the Counter Guardian EMIYA. Based upon his personal variation of Time Manipulation that he possessed in life, it allows him to control his inner flow of time, utilizing high-speed attacks and maneuvers by accelerating the flow of time and concealing himself by slowing time to stagnate his biorhythms. With it possessing power as a Noble Phantasm, he is able to utilize extreme consecutive attacks to the point where he can be described as being invincible in anti-personnel combat.
  • Phantasm Punishment: Mystery Bisection: (神秘轢断ファンタズム・パニッシュメント, Fantazumu Panisshumento: Shinpi Rekidan) is Kiritsugu Emiya's Origin of "Severing and Binding" sublimated as the Noble Phantasm of the Counter Guardian EMIYA. It is his Origin made form, the embodiment of it, utilized during his regular attacks. In doing so, he is able to scramble his opponent's insides when he successfully lands an Origin Bullet from his Thompson Contender, crippling them and leaving them unable to cast magecraft.

Class Skills

  • Presence Concealment: (気配遮断, Kehai Shadan, localized as "Obfuscation") The ability to hide one's presence as a Servant. EMIYA's A+ rank proficiency in this skill renders him virtually impossible to detect unless he decides to attack, upon which this skill's effect sharply drops.
  • Independent Action: (単独行動, Tandoku Kōdō, localized as "Independence"): is the ability to remain independent even when rejecting the Magical Energy supply from the Master. At the higher ranks, it is also possible to remain for extended periods of time in this world without an established contract. It is both useful and troublesome depending on the disposition of the Servant and the rank of Independent Action. Acting in autonomy from the Master's Magical Energy supply, the Master can concentrate their own Magical Energy on large spells, or the Servant will be fine even in the case they can not supply Magical Energy due to injury. EMIYA's Rank in this skill is A, allowing him to even engage in combat without a Master. However, his effectiveness will be diminished, and he must have a competent Master in order to use his Noble Phantasm as frequently as he likes.

Personal Skills

  • Magecraft: A skill that measures one's skill to perform modern thaumaturgy. Due to his mastery of his internal Reality Marble and his activities as a Spellcaster, EMIYA has a B Rank in this skill.
  • Affections of the Holy Grail: A skill that represents the fact that in another continuity, EMIYA is deeply loved by the one who becomes the Holy Grail. As a result, he gains a boost to his Luck when he is faced with incredible odds, allowing him to escape situations that would otherwise spell certain death. However, his comes at the expense of the happiness of everyone else around him.

Note: EMIYA possesses all of the firearms, equipment, and skills of his mainstream counterpart.
