Speculation thread on the Servants for Fate/Prototype: Fragments of Blue and Silver?
>What is it
Basically imagine Fate/Zero, but for Fate/Prototype, it tells the events of Saber's Grail War under Manaka.
Anyway, let's try and figure out who the Servants are. Except for Caster because we already know he's Paracelsus. And Rider because it's painfully obvious he's Ramesses II.
>has his own castle
>has a reality marble of beasts and his own sphinx
>has his own flying ship
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_deity#Solar_barge_and_sun_chariot (Pharaohs were living incarnations of Ra)
>refers to himself as King of Kings
He refers to himself as such in Percy Shelley's Ozymandias poem found here: http://www.shmoop.com/ozymandias/poem-text.html
So we still need to figure out Archer, Lancer, Berserker, and Assassin.
According to that last one, wouldn't Rider be Ozymandias and not Ramses?
>refers to himself as King of Kings
So he's basically the Gilgamesh we see in Fate/Stay Night? He dresses better than Gilgamesh anyways.
It's funny how OP's yet to answer this.
Okay, I'll bite.
Ozymandias was what the Greeks called Ramesses II. They're the same guy.
Possibly, he sounds like he's got the arrogance to match.
So is there any actual confirmation that Rider is Ramses II or is OP just talking out his ass with no backup?
That said, I'm more curious as to what the hell is up with Lancer. Saber doesn't recognize her armor at all.
He's got a fucking a flying ship that can scorch the earth, a Reality Marble that contains a palace and Phantasmal Beasts of all kinds and a Divine Beast Sphinx.
Also he thinks he's big shit. He's basically Gilgamesh in personality department. Because Prototype Gilgamesh was less of an asshole in general. He actually respected Saber as his worthy rival and helped Ayaka when she was in danger, he's a cautious bro rival material.
He calls himself Ozymandias, dude, quoting Shelley's poem which is what "Iskandar" is to Alexander the Great. A nickname.
He's got a fucking Egyptian temple RM and a Sphinx. What do you think?
Did they just import Gilgamesh for this or something?
That's like saying "wouldn't Zero Rider be Iskandar and not Alexander", you know right?
What is this?
This isn't speculation; just your shitty fanfic.
>He calls himself Ozymandias
He does this in the light novel? When?
Why are they writing the 4th war if the 5th one isn't written?
Untouched material, I guess.
Gilgamesh is in Prototype. He's just different in the personality department and fights in another world (the 5th). When Gilgamesh was changed from love triangle rival and worthy enemy who assists against the bad guys to NTR boss villain, his personality was revamped.
I like to see what servants get turned into stupid bishounen.
It does seem like the author had Gil in mind.
Having said that, I'm not very hyped for this Rider. I am curious about the other servants, though.
How much of the Fate/Prototype OVA was actual old material, and how much of it was written after FSN?
Paracelsus and (unless OP is spewing bullshit) Ramses the Great.
The OVA was gathered from what was done. So probably next to none.
This is definitely being written with post F/SN laws in mind though.
According to the wiki and Chinese forums, he tells people to refer him with that name. He's painfully Gilgamesh with a paintjob. He even boasts as he does.
Our first Gil clone.
>When Gilgamesh was changed from love triangle rival and worthy enemy who assists against the bad guys to NTR boss villain, his personality was revamped.
I've heard F/SN Gil's personality was based on Proto Saber Alter and not Proto Gil? I don't have a reliable source on that, though, I heard it on /a/. So it could be completely bullshit, I have no idea. Does anyone else know if that's true?
Fate/Prototype: Fragments of Blue and Silver
I remember it being said that Gil's design was based from proto Saber Alter. Never heard about personality, though.
Lancer is female apparently. We don't know which servant, but OP is correct about Caster and Rider.
The Rin proto's father summoned Caster.
Wait, there's a Prototype story being written? Guess I've been out of the loop for TM stuff.
The necklace reminds me to Zero casual Gil. Does he get his own Kotomine clone as fuckbuddy?
Oh sweet. About damn time. There's only so much I can take of Artoria before it just gets annoying.
It's pretty common in Egyptian bling. He has the bangles too.
Who is his Master? Kyrie Minekoto?
They said somewhere that a heroic spirit never actually had to exist, it just had to have a strong presence in people's minds or something. Does that mean you could summon Batman as a servant?
Huh, I guess Arthur can kick his ass because he has Avalon (he passes it to Ayaka when he saves her).
Why is the Nasuverse barely updated while there are a fuckton of spinoffs of parallel world grail wars? I'm getting tired of all this.
I was actually looking forward to a pharaoh, but this rendition just irks me.
Because it sells more than shitty vampires.
Ramses II was always a punk with an inflated ego who thought he was the shit. So this portrayal is actually very true to him.
No clue. That said if it is the Kirei clone, it's probably Sancraid.
Sancraid isn't like Kirei though.
They could tell us more about the first three wars or something. Maybe Fate/EMIYA. It could even be more Saber, that shit sells well.
Or what about something completely new.
He takes Kirei's place in Prototype.
> Maybe Fate/EMIYA. It could even be more Saber, that shit sells well
Why. Their stories ended. That's why all their appearances after their routes are cameos, plot devices or inane fanservice. Archer got a pass in CCC.
>Doesn't wear a gaudy fur coat.
>Doesn't wear an ugly track suit.
>Doesn't wear ugly snake-skin pants
He looks better than F/SN Gilgamesh. Where Gilgamesh just had an arrogant smug look, this guy might could out do Gilgamesh just by his look.
It's because of Fate's concept.
You only have to deal with 'shitty vampires' in the first two routes.
I thought Rider was supposed to be Perseus
If Rider sings he'll be SOTY for me.
>YOU WHO I CALLED BROTHER
He's more like Zouken.
My problem isn't so much the sidestories, it's more about how they never update the Nasuverse.
He is in Fate/Prototype.
This is a prequel to it.
He is in the 5th war. This is the 4th war, where Saber was summoned by Manaka.
Oh. Well then this'll be cool.
In personality yeah. What I mean is role. He's the prototype for Kirei in that he's the priest/mediator with a Servant.
>You only have to deal with 'shitty vampires' in the first two routes.
Then boring as fuck onishit nobody cares about.
Learning more about heroes and making heroes fight each others is more exciting than trying to give a damn about the other characters.
>Anime adaptation when
>Carnival Phantasm with regular Gilgamesh and Ramses racing in their flying ships when
>all these retards latching on to OP saying Rider is Ramses
Come on, /a/, I thought you were better than that.
>Look upon my works, o undying heroes, and despair!
Apparently it's a quote.
Bet you thought Saber was Joan of Arc.
Archer vs Rider when? I want to see the battle of the world sized egos.
>Archer vs Rider when? I want to see the battle of the world sized egos.
Someone mentioned a race between the two in a new CP season.
>LN prequel of Prototype
They reaally want to make a full series i'm guessing.
Also Von Hohenheim caster, because why the fuck not
>delicious brown Gil
>spinoff of a spinoff that isn't even finished
FSN is the spinoff
F/E CCC adaptation never.
Which is probably a good thing.
Archer is Odysseus.
I hope that one day we get the full story of the Third Grail War. One day.
