|“||Let light be released from the ends of the Earth. It shall split the heavens, and connect the land. Anchor of the Storm! Rhongomyniad!||„|
|~ Arturia using her Noble Phantasm|
Lancer (ランサー, Ransā) is a Lancer-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.
Lancer's True Name is Arturia Pendragon, manifested as Lancer due to her holy lance Rhongomyniad. She is a possibility if Arturia uses it instead of Excalibur as her main weapon during her reign. Her bodily age actually grows without intervention of Excalibur. However, merely using it for ten years hasn't changed her mentality and spiritual construction too much.
Another Arturia with the same appearance appears as the main antagonist of Fate/Grand Order's sixth chapter, called The Lion King (獅子王, Shishi-ō). She is from an alternate history where Bedivere never returned Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake, thus prevented her from dying. As a result, Rhongomyniad has changed her greatly. She is also called the Goddess of Rhongomyniad (女神ロンゴミニアド, Megami Rongominiado). She is, however, no Servant at all, and is different from a Lancer summoned by Chaldea.

Intelligence: Arturia's mentality is known to not be much different than her mainstream counterpart, being a prodigious king who led Britain to prosperity despite the many difficult decisions she had to make but relied more on her reasoning rather then Instinct. On the other hand, her counterpart, the Goddess of Rhongomyniad, is much more of a tyrant than even her Alter form is, mercilessly executing those who would go against her as she massacres her own citizens in order to try and save Britain from Solomon.
Weaknesses: Arturia lacks the boons provided by her counterpart's Instinct skill and Avalon, Rhongomyniad's activation is restricted by Thirteen Constraints, half of which must be released to use its full power | The Goddess of Rhongomyinad's longevity is tied to the spear itself, so should it be taken from her and Excalibur returned to her, she will eventually vanish
Rhongomyniad: The Spear That Shines To The Ends Of The Earth (最果てにて輝ける槍ロンゴミニアド, Rongominiado: Saihate nite Kagayakeru Yari): is the holy lance of King Arthur. Also known as Ron. It is regarded in the same light as the holy lance Longinus that pierced the side of Jesus Christ.
King Arthur used it in her final battle to kill Mordred. It is said that no matter the toughness of Mordred's armor, it amounted to nothing before the lance as it pierced her chest. King Arthur also used this spear against Vortigern in his Dragon form, the spiral light of the spear pierced through the heart of the crucified dragon.
Its purpose isn't meant to be used as a weapon to strike down external invaders. It exists to be the planet's anchor and to ensure the World's stability. As a "pillar of light" that fasten together the two sides of the World (reality and illusions) itself, and it has been said that, in the unlikely event that this is undone, reality will be tear off from the World. Being the "king" that stood at the final moments of illusion and the Age of Gods, she possessed the holy lance that conceals such tremendous power.
The activation of this spear is restricted by the "13 seals", an attribute it shares with Excalibur Proto, and at least half of the seals must be fulfilled to release the light from the Ends of Earth. When activated, both its Type and Rank would change, the holy spear will emit a fragment of the power of the light that shines in the far away.
The ability to use it has been passed down in a line descended from relatives of Arthur, currently held by Gray. When activated, it can launch a beam of light.
- Magic Resistance (対魔力, Tai-Maryoku, localized as "Anti-Magic"): An innate ability that grants protection against magical effects. Differently from the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. Due to her class, Arturia's normally stellar A-Rank is lowered to a less impressive B-Rank, nullifying all spells below three verses while High Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals will have trouble affecting her.
- Riding (騎乗, Kijō, localized as "Dragoon"): The Class Skill of Rider and Saber, is the ability to ride mounts. Rider-class Servants will typically possess a high rank, and A-rank can allow for Phantasmal Beasts and Divine Beasts to be mounted. As Lancer, Arturia has an A-Rank in this skill as true lances rely on the speed of the thrust to deal maximum damage, which is why they were reserved for mounted combat.
- Mana Burst (魔力放出, Maryoku Hōshutsu): Arturia retains the use of the Mana Burst skill employed by her counterpart, allowing her to expel bursts of magical energy to improve her already impressive speed, strength, and durability.
- Charisma (カリスマ, Karisuma): Lancer retains the natural Charisma of her counterpart, allowing her to splendidly lead her country as its king. It also has the ability of making her arguments much more convincing, allowing it to act as a subtle form of Mind Manipulation.
