|“||I don’t really hate my enemies. Simply kill, that’s a knight’s natural course of action.||„|
|~ Cú Alter's thoughts on his actions|
Berserker (バーサーカー, Bāsākā) is an altered Servant summoned by Medb in E Pluribus Unum, the Fifth Singularity, using the Holy Grail to summon Cú Chulainn in a form perfect for her. As Cú Chulainn Alter (クー・フーリン・オルタ, Kū Fūrin Oruta), he has changed greatly, becoming a monstrous Mad King devoted to devouring and destroying the land of America and leaving nothing remaining. It does not even reflect his berserk form in life, instead twisting him into a monstrous form that more reflects the sea monster Curruid, from which Gáe Bolg was carved.

Intelligence: Despite being a Berserker, Cú Chulainn Alter has retained most of his reason, allowing him to perform complex techniques and attacks that even Scáthach was unaware of. He is ruthless in combat, mercilessly impaling foes from behind and scouring the land as per Medb's wishes. He is a nihilist by nature, believing everything to be meaningless in the end, making him willing to damage his own body to end a target and seeing his own existence as a mere tool for his Master.

Notable Attacks / Techniques:
|“||Slaughter. Without exception. Liberate all curses. Without moderation. Be prepared to challenge despair... Curruid Coinchenn!||„|
|~ Cú Alter using Curruid Coinchenn|
Gáe Bolg: Gouging Piercing Spear of Carnage: Cú Alter's variant of Gáe Bolg, possessing the same build and basic function as the original. Carved from the remains of the beast Curruid's skull, it inhibits regeneration, making it difficult to heal from wounds it inflicts. Although one can save themselves through external means of healing, the wound will not heal completely until Cú Alter's death. Cú Alter can release its true name to utilize it as his normal self utilizes the Soaring Spear, hurling the spear with such power that it badly damages his own body while gaining strength and range. Like the Soaring Spear, it homes in on his target and splits into countless spearheads to cause destruction and death on a great scale, inflicting instant death on others, while simply greatly damaging those who are lucky enough to survive. The damage to Cú Alter's body is instantly healed with Rune Magic, but it still causes him intense pain.
Curruid Coinchenn: Beast of Crunching Deathtusk: Cú Alter's unique Noble Phantasm, which manifests the rest of Curruid's skeleton from his wrath to wear it as armor. It is an offensive armor that raises his Strength to EX-rank and boosts his Endurance as well, but prohibiting the use of Gáe Bolg for as long as he wears it. Its claws also seem to bear Gáe Bolg's legendary effects, skewering his opponent with countless barbs when he wounds them, ripping them apart from the inside out and inhibiting their regeneration.
Mad Enhancement: The source of the Berserker class's power, raising their statistics in exchange for a loss of sanity. Due to the nature of his summoning, Cú Alter has an EX-ranked Mad Enhancement, allowing him to converse normally and think logically despite his class. However, it is impossible for him to hold any meaningful conversation with his opponents. In addition, his true rank of C can show, boosting his statistics at the cost of his pride and self-control.
Battle Continuation: A skill that reflects one's exceptional vitality and endurance, allowing the user to fight on despite grievous wounds and escape safely even when defeated. Cú Alter is a mad beast that never gives up, fighting on to the very end, even if he is lethally injured, dying only when he receives a final, decisive blow. This is further supplemented by his regenerative capabilities, which make it extremely difficult to inflict any lasting harm.
Divinity: The measure of one's Divine blood, reflected in high ranks by the user becoming part Divine Spirit, though it decreases if the user dislikes the gods. It allows Cú Alter to reduce "purge defense" in proportion to the rank of his Divinity, allowing him to break through defensive abilities such as Achilles' Andreas Amarantos. As the son of the God of Light, Lugh, Cú Alter would normally have a higher rank, but his altered state has ranked it down to C.
Fairies Maddening: Cú Alter can awaken the spirits and fairies hiding within the Earth with a growl that also crushes his opponent's spirits.
Protection from Arrows: A skill that provides increased defense against ranged attacks through the prediction of the projectiles' trajectories, whether through hearing the air being cut or sensing an enemy's killing intent. As long as the shooter is within Cú Alter's line of sight, he can track down their projectiles and defend against them easily, but it offers no protection against extremely long range attacks or those with a great area-of-effect. Because of his Mad Enhancement, this skill is ranked down, so he cannot track projectiles enhanced by magecraft and has to follow them with his eyes.
Rune Magic: A skill that measures one's knowledge of this type of Northern European Magecraft. Like his normal self, Cú Alter has mastered the original eighteen Norse Runes, which would give him A-Rank proficiency as Caster, but is downgraded to B-Rank proficiency in this distorted, altered state. With it he is able to achieve a variety of effects such as setting up runic barriers, duplicating the Magic Resistance skill through runic defenses, and instantaneously healing himself whenever he is damaged.
