|“||My spear is the phosphorus light of the stars, the brilliance at the end of the world... None may oppose it.||„|
|~ Arturia after the battle's completion|
Lancer (ランサー, Ransā) is one of the Servants of the Grand Orders. Her true name is Arturia Pendragon (アルトリア・ペンドラゴン, Arutoria Pendoragon), better known as King Arthur, the "Once and Future King" and a legendary hero of Britain. She became king by pulling the sword Caliburn from the stone. While she is most popularly known as the wielder of Excalibur, the strongest holy sword, this Arturia instead originates from a possibility where the holy lance Rhongomyniad was instead her main weapon. As a result, she is no longer a pure Heroic Spirit, as she has become an existence closer to that of a Divine Spirit.
Another Arturia wielding Rhongomyniad, the Lion King (獅子王, Shishi-ō), appears during the Sixth Singularity, Camelot. She is from a history in which Bedivere never returned Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake, preventing Arturia from passing on. As a result, Rhongomyniad has changed her greatly, completely transforming her into a Divine Spirit, the Goddess Rhongomyniad (女神ロンゴミニアド, Megami Rongominiado).

If it were to be undone, reality will be stripped from the surface of the World, leaving only the Reverse Side of the World and bringing back the Age of Gods). | At least Mountain level, likely higher (Above all her knights, all of which have been empowered, such as Gawain, who is constantly blessed by the full power of Numeral of the Saint), at least Country level, likely higher with Rhongomyniad (Can match Ozymandias' Dendera Electric Bulb).

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 than her 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 her Saber counterpart's Instinct, along with Avalon. Rhongomyniad's activation is limited by the Thirteen Constraints of the Round Table, at least half of which must be released to showcase its full power. | The Goddess of Rhongomyniad's immortality is linked to the spear, so, without it, she will eventually vanish.
Notable Attacks / Techniques:
|“||Holy Spear, anchor! 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 Rhongomyniad|
Rhongomyniad: The Spear That Shines To The Ends Of The Earth: The holy lance of King Arthur, a blessed spear regarded in the same light as the holy spear Longinus, that which pierced the Messiah. As a weapon, it is incredibly powerful, capable of instantly punching through Mordred's armor to kill her in a single blow, as if there was nothing in its way at all. Its true power lies in its activation, however. The holy spear itself is only a shadow of the true Rhongomyniad, a tower of light that fastens the outer layer of the World and the Reverse Side of the World beneath it in place. Were this anchor to be undone, it would result in "reality" being torn from the surface of the World, revealing the Reverse Side of the World underneath it and reinstating the Age of Gods. For this reason, Rhongomyniad is regarded as the "spear of the end".
Much like Excalibur Proto, Rhongomyniad's true power is restricted by the Thirteen Restraints of the Round Table. Its true power only shows when half of the seals are released, showcasing the brilliance that exists at the Ends of the Earth. Without half of its Restraints released, it only showcases a tiny fragment of its true power, but even this has great power. The Restraints that are known thus far are:
- The enemy must be more powerful than oneself.
- The battle must be one-on-one.
- The enemy must not be an Elemental.
- The battle must be one against evil.
- The battle must not involve personal gain.
- The battle must not be inhumane.
- The battle must be honorable.
- The battle must be for the truth.
- The battle must be to live.
- The battle must be to save the world.
Magic Resistance: An innate ability that grants protection against magical effects. Unlike the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. Due to her class, Arturia's Magic Resistance is lowered from a stellar A-rank to B-rank, though this is still enough to nullify spells with a chant below three verses, and makes it difficult for even High-Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals to effect her.
Riding: The ability to ride mounts. Arturia's skill and experiences as a knight mean that she has ridden horses throughout all of her life, and summoned as a Servant, she rides the Dun Stallion so that she can use the full power of Rhongomyniad as a lance. She can ride all vehicles and nearly all other animals with perfect control and speed that far surpasses human capabilities, though she cannot ride Phantasmal or Divine Beasts.
Blessings from the End of the World: A blessing automatically given to those who wield Rhongomyniad, ranking up all their parameters save for Mana and Luck during battle.
Charisma: The natural talent to command an army, which increases the ability of allies during group battles. It is said that a rank of B in this skill is sufficient to lead a nation as its King.
Mana Burst: A skill that allows for an increase in performance by infusing one's weapons and body with magical energy, for both defensive and offensive purposes, effectively recreating the effects of a jet burst. As a Lancer, Arturia uses this ability as she did when she was a Saber, using it to propel herself across the battlefield at high speeds while reinforcing her entire body with magical energy. With A-rank, even a stick can become a great weapon.
