~ Avenger


Avenger (アヴェンジャー, Avenjā) is the Avenger-class Servant of the Einzbern Master‎‎ in the Third Holy Grail War. He is an abnormal Servant that is not part of the regular seven classes, whose true identity is Angra Mainyu (アンリマユ, Anrimayu).

While he was not actually the evil god of Zoroastrianism, his defeat in the Third War corrupted the Grail, turning it into the equivalent of All the World's Evils. This manifestation attempts to be born through the Holy Grail, and acts as the Servant of Sakura Matou in the Fifth Holy Grail War of the Heaven's Feel route of Fate/stay night. He acts as the Servant of Bazett Fraga McRemitz in place of Lancer in the four day loop of Fate/hollow ataraxia.

Notable Attacks/Techniques


Tawrich and Zarich

- Unlimited Raise Dead: Infinite Ruin: The four day time loop caused by Avenger's abilities.

- Shade Form/Manifestation: Angra Mainyu is capable of transforming into or manifesting a shadowy werewolf-like monster called a Shade.

- All the World's Evils: Cursed black mud that is a manifestation of Angra Mainyu after he is taken into the Greater Grail. It consumes, curses, or corrupts anything it comes into contact with. The cursed mud can "blacken" Servants that come into contact with it, giving them physical bodies and a limitless supply of magical energy, but turning them evil.

Class Skills

- Avenger (復讐者, Fukushū-sha): A class skill that marks Angra Mainyu as an Avenger. It presumably lowers his ability to resist status effects while allowing him to absorb the mana released from the damage he takes, allowing him to use his Noble Phantasm more frequently and effectively.

- Oblivion Correction (忘却補正, Bōkyaku hosei): A Class Skill that increases the damage Avenger deals whenever he strikes his foe's weak points.

- Self Replenishment (Magic) (自己回復 (魔力), Jiko kaifuku (maryoku)): A Class Skill that allows Avenger to autonomously replenish his mana reserves overtime.

Noble Phantasm

Verg Avesta: False Copy of Inscribed Creation: A wound-sharing, primal curse, one of the simplest curses of retribution. It causes any damage taken by the user to also be dealt to the attacker by reflecting it directly on their soul. The ability causes no wounds to appear, but simply mirrors the pain associated with the wound onto the opponent. The damage will not heal until Avenger's wounds are healed or he succumbs to them.

The weakness in the ability is that it not only requires Avenger to be wounded, but he must also be alive and conscious, as he must consciously activate the ability by chanting its name. It can only focus on a single target, and it is useless against high-level attacks. The damage is also generally not a great problem for a Servant level opponent, as they can still hold up, while Avenger, who is far below the level of an average Servant, will quickly die from such wounds, and it can only be used once on the same target.

    • What precisely does "enemies of humanity" mean? They just go around trying to kill all humans?
    • That about sums it up. They will be filled with anti-human sentiment and made to slaughter as many as possible.
