Intelligence: As the King of Kings and Egypt's Greatest Pharaoh, Ozymandias is a highly competent and skilled general, warrior and politician, having lead Egypt into its Golden Age under his rule. However much like the King of Heroes 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. Unlike the King of Heroes however, he 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. In addition he 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 battles entertaining, he plays to win, utilizing his Noble Phantasms tactically to destroy his enemies, such as when he sent a Sphinx to kill Arthur immediately after the latter challenges him to a duel, or when he destroyed Paracelsus bounded field to ambush and kill Hyde with Mesektet. During the Camelot singularity, Ozymandias waged war against the Lion King and the Knights of the Round table, and managed to shatter the Tower of the Farthest End during their artillery war, when forced to utilize his last resort attack after failing to shatter it when the Lion King wasn't able to fire her Light of Judgement. Due to his absurdly powerful Noble Phantasms and these traits, Ozymandias is considered the single strongest Servant of the First Tokyo Holy Grail War that only a highly 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 radiates a powerful magical light referred to as Uraeus, "the serpent that slaughters serpents", the embodiment of the might of the sun. 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 easily kill most Servants, given time it can even burn all of Tokyo to cinders.
The Sphinx of Abu el-Hol: The Lion-Bodied Beast of the Hot Sand: An A-rank Anti-Army Noble Phantasm that allows Ozymandias to summon Sphinxes, Divine Beasts of great class that are said to be incarnations of the Sky God Horus. Each of the Sphinxes boasts incredible power, with Da Vinci stating that they are possibly stronger than dragonkind. Due to being manifestations of fire and wind, they possess the ability to cause a tornado of flames with their roar, and the ability to cover themselves with flames that are hot enough to instantly melt most objects they come into contact with. In addition they cable adjusting the temperature of their claws through their own magical power to increase their cutting power. Some of the known Sphinxes include:
- Sphinx Wehem-Mesut: The king of Ozymandias' Sphinxes, and the strongest. He calls it the "Cosmos Sphinx" due to its otherworldly appearance. It normally lies dormant in his temple complex.

|~ Ozymandias utilizing Ramesseum Tentyris|
Ramesseum Tentyris: The Shining Great Temple Complex: Ozymandias' greatest trump card, the glory and might of Egypt's greatest pharaoh, Ramesses II embodied as a Noble Phantasm. It is similar to a Reality Marble, appearing as a giant composite temple complex doesn't exist in reality. The giant composite complex consists of numerous temples, complexes and mausoleums, such as the Great Karnak Temple Complex, the Great Dendera Temple Complex, the Great Temples of Abu Simbel, and many others who are all centred around the main temple,Ramesseum.
Ozymandias controls the entire complex from the throne room in the main temple, like the captain's chair on a starship. Allowing him to manage the flow of magical energy to empower certain areas, shutting down others in the process. In addition he also acts as the core, providing magical energy for the Great Light Bulb Dendera that powers the complex.
Each and every temple contains numerous divine protections and curses associated with the Gods enshrined in them, which Ozymandias is capable of directing towards any target within his domain. Although the full extent of the curses and protections are unknown. One of the known protections is given to himself and his Guardian Beasts which consists of a legion of Phantasmal Beasts and a Division of Divine Beasts. It's a divine blessing of immortality, that makes the destruction of Ramesseum Tentyris and Ozymandias a necessity to kill them. This immortality effect nullifies fatal wounds and grants them regeneration, allowing Ozymandias to survive and reattach his head after being decapitated by King Hassan.
One of the known divine curses, 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. Another curse 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.
Furthermore the temple complex also possesses defensive abilities such as Anti-Purge defenses that makes attacks that does not follow a specific rule unable to damage it, and external walls that are covered by the the Hittites' divine steel, which is powerful enough to withstand and rebound average Anti-Army Noble Phantasms without a scratch.
One of the most important functions of the temple is the Dendera Light Bulb, also known as the the Great Light Bulb Amon Ra, which is its primary method of attack and the reason Ramesseum Tentyris is designated as an EX-rank Anti-Fortress Noble Phantasm. It's utilized through the "artillery" situated at the main temple, and it unleashes Ozymandias' Divine Judgement upon his enemies, as a "Super Long Distance Great Divine Punishment attack" that shows the might of the gods. It is said to be as powerful as a solar flare, and is powerful enough to instantly destroy all of Tokyo. A single blast is so powerful that it's able to overpower Excalibur Proto with half its restraints released, requiring Excalibur Proto to be used in conjunction with a triple command spell boosted Stella to overpower. As a last resort, Ozymandias can utilizing the magical energy of the Dendera Light Bulb to reinforce the base component of the complex and launch parts of it as devastating projectiles, with such force that it could clash with the Lion King's Light of Judgement and shatter the Tower of the Farthest End with the help of Nitocris' Mirror.
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, giving him a B Rank in this skill.
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 Ozymandias possesses as the one who receives the Divine Protection of the Sun God Ra.
