Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Noble Phantasm

  • Hanging Gardens of Babylon: Aerial Garden of Vanity: The EX rank anti-world noble phantasm of Semiramis. Rather than the description of a garden, or even a fortress, it is more aptly described as a floating weapon, manifested as a "enormous fortress hanging in the air" in line with its name. The act of it activating is enough to bring other Servants to awe, even eliciting a brief response from the normally stoic Lancer of Red. Although similar to a Temple constructed using Territory Creation, surpassing even the highest-grade normal Temples, it is not meant to be a fortification, but a Noble Phantasm for offensive use. It does not boast great speed, taking an hour to travel a number of kilometres, but it is capable of moving towards an enemy stronghold and "hanging" midair to prepare for attack. The only way for enemies to attack is with flying mounts or planes, but she can easily defend it with her flying Dragon Wing Warriors and powerful magecraft. Semiramis gets a huge boost in power when on the Gardens that increases all of her parameters in rank, boosts her fame level to the highest class. It becomes possible for her to utilize magecraft that reaches into the realm of Magic, using EX-ranked orbs of light each compared to Anti-Army Noble Phantasms capable of easily overwhelming A-ranked Magic Resistance.
  • The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
  • The Divine Beast

  • Sikera Ušum: Arrogant King's Alcohol: is a Noble Phantasm of Semiramis as an assassin. It is a manifestation of her poisoning of her husband, the first murder by poison in record. Upon activation, the area around and magic cast by Semiramis become poisonous. She can alter the poison composition to make composed of Hydra's poison while simultaneously controlling chains which are the embodiment of the poisons appearance. Against servants with poison resistance or relevant legend, it causes diminished effect; while servants that are hurt or killed by poison take increased damage. When inside the Hanging Gardens of Babylon she can even summon creatures Phantasmal Species if they have an anecdote/connection to poison, such as the Divine Beast Bašmu one of the eleven demons born from Tiamat.

Class Skills

  • Presence Concealment: is the capacity to hide one's presence as a Servant. It is a common skill to the Assassin class. The rank of presence concealment drops considerably when preparing to attack. However, this condition does not apply to poisoning something.
  • Territory Creation: is the skill to build a special terrain that is advantageous to oneself as a magus. By gathering specific materials, it is possible to create a "Hanging Gardens of Babylon", superior to a "Temple".
  • Item Construction: is the skill to manufacture magical items. Semiramis specializes in poisons, so she can't make any other types of tools.

Personal Skills

  • Familiar (Doves): allows the use of doves as familiars. They can be directed by thought alone, without need for a contract.
  • Double Summon: is a rare personal skill possessed only by a select few Servants, it permits a Servant to simultaneously possess class skills from two distinct classes. Semiramis possesses class skills from both the Assassin and Caster classes.
  • Divinity: is the measure of whether one has Divine Spirit aptitude or not. At high levels one is treated as a mixed race of a Divine Spirit, and the level declines when the Heroic Spirit's own rank as a Monster, Demonic Beast raises. It can also decrease due one's dislike for the gods. It also has an effect which reduces special defensive values called "purge defense" in proportion to the Divinity's Rank.
