Intelligence: Ozymandias is much like Gilgamesh in that he's incredibly arrogant and prefers to get his way, loudly announcing his true name and expecting others to prostrate themselves in his mere presence. However, unlike Gilgamesh, Ozymandias takes his duties as a King very seriously and seeks to lead the world into a new Golden Age under his leadership as Egypt once did. As a result, he is a skilled politician, general, and warrior who brought prosperity to has land as reflected by the opulence of his Noble Phantasms. He also has a deep understanding of magecraft, calling Misaya's familiars the work of an amateur even though she is considered a genius in the modern era before casually knocking her out with a glance into the eyes of her familiars. While he finds fights entertaining he plays to win, sending his Noble Phantasms at Arthur immediately after the latter challenges him to a duel and summoning Ramesseum Tentyris upon realizing that he was heavily outnumbered. Along with his Noble Phantasms, these traits have Ozymandias pegged as the single strongest Servant of the war that only a coordinated siege of multiple Servants could defeat.
Weaknesses: Ozymandias is quite arrogant and prone to long-winded speeches. He is not a warrior himself, but he can still hold his own in combat.
Notable Attacks / Techniques:
Mesektet: The Solar Ship of the Dark Night: The boat that carried the sun god Ra through the sky. As one of his incarnations, Ozymandias possesses it as a Noble Phantasm, utilizing it as a flying ship. It moves at incredible speeds, and Ozymandias can summon just parts of it if he wishes. It fires beams of light that are powerful enough to kill Servants, and given time, it can burn all of Tokyo to cinders.
The Sphinx of Abu el-Hol: The Lion-Bodied Beast of the Hot Sand: A Noble Phantasm that allows Ozymandias to summon Sphinxes, Divine Beasts of great class, to his aid. Due to being manifestations of fire and wind, the Sphinxes are able to cover themselves with flames that are hot enough to instantly melt most objects they come into contact with. They can also adjust the temperature of their claws through their own magical power to increase their cutting power, and their roars can cause a tornado of flames.
- Sphinx Wehem-Mesut: The king of Ozymandias' Sphinxes, and the strongest. He calls it the "Cosmos Sphinx" due to its otherworldly appearance.

|~ Ozymandias utilizing Ramesseum Tentyris|
Ramesseum Tentyris: The Shining Great Temple Complex: The glory and might of Egypt's greatest pharaoh, Ramesses II, and of how he contains the gods within his body, embodied as a Noble Phantasm. It is similar to a Reality Marble, appearing as a giant complex of temples and corridors centered around the Ramesseum Temple Complex, which acts as its throne room. Ozymandias controls the entire complex from his throne, like the captain's chair on a starship. Each temple and corridor represents a certain god, and thus has unique powers, but the full extent of its features are unknown. Ozymandias acts as the core, providing magical energy for the light bulb that powers the complex. He can empower certain areas of the complex by diverting more magical energy there, shutting down other areas. He can even convert his own Saint Graph into magical energy to provide further power.
The complex contains countless Phantasmal Beasts, described as a legion, as well as several Divine Beasts. Along with Ozymandias, these Guardian Beasts are granted immortality, necessitating the destruction of Ramesseum Tentyris and Ozymandias himself to kill them. This immortality effect nullifies fatal wounds, allowing Ozymandias to survive being decapitated by King Hassan. It also possesses a divine curse that poisons any invaders, killing normal creatures within two seconds and weakening Servants by decreasing their parameters and sometimes their skills, as well. Even Arash, who is resistant to poisons, is weakened by this effect. There is yet another curse that prevents the Noble Phantasms of invaders from being released, though it can be neutralized with assistance, or by those with strong ties to Divine Spirits, such as Divinity or Noble Phantasms that were possessed by gods.
One of the most important functions of the temple is the Dendera Electric Bulb, the "Great Light Bulb Amon Ra", its primary form of attack. It acts as a long distance artillery, calling upon the might of the gods to unleash Ozymandias' Divine Judgement. It is said to be as powerful as a solar flare, and is powerful enough to instantly vaporize all of Tokyo or an entire naval fleet. Its power far surpasses Excalibur Proto, easily overpowering it, and it can be further empowered by shutting down most of the complex to provide power. As a last resort, Ozymandias can launch the pyramids of Ramesseum Tentyris as projectiles with such force that they can break through the Lion King's barriers, which could withstand the Dendera Electric Bulb.
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. Ozymandias' B-rank negates spells with a chant below three verses, making it difficult for even High-Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals to affect him.
Riding: The ability to ride mounts. Ozymandias' exceptional A+ rank allows him to ride any vehicle, creature, or beast masterfully, save for the Dragon Kind. With his high rank, Ozymandias can easily control Mesektet.
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, and few exemplify this better than Ozymandias, the King of Kings, and the greatest pharaoh of Egypt.
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 Ozymandias to reduce "purge defense" in proportion to the rank of his Divinity, allowing him to break through defensive abilities such as Achilles' Andreias Amarantos. As pharaoh, Ozymandias is recognized as the son of the sun god, Ra, as well as one of his earthly incarnations.
Imperial Privilege: An ability that allows Ozymandias to gain skills that would normally be impossible for him to possess for a short amount of time. At A-rank, he can even modify his body to gain skills associated with the body, such as Divinity, though he already has it. He can also gain abilities such as swordsmanship, military tactics, and fine arts, among others. However, he cannot acquire skills without basis.
Protection from the Sun God: A skill whose canon effects are currently unknown.
