Unlock Description Translation🛈
Default 世界最高にして唯一の顧問探偵。


NA Localization: The world's greatest and most famous consulting detective.
The embodiment of truth-seekers...the very concept of a detective.
He is the main character of the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle between the 19th and 20th Century, and a detective who investigated and solved countless mysteries. He is one of the original inspirations for various other detectives in other mystery novels that followed...
Or so the story goes.
The truth of the matter remains a mystery...

Fan Translation: The world’s sole and greatest consulting detective.
The crystallization of the concept of detective; the representative of “those who reveal”. The protagonist of the stories that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in the 19th~20th Century, he is a detective who explains all enigmas and one of the ancestors of the “detectives” that appear in the many mystery novels of later years—-- Or so it is assumed.
But what is the truth, really?

Bond 1 身長/体重:183cm・65kg

属性:中立・善  性別:男性

NA Localization: Height/Weight: 183cm, 65kg
Origin: Sherlock Holmes Series
Region: England, Worldwide
Alignment: Neutral-Good
Gender: Male
Supposing he manifested from his tales, he might possess elements not only from Doyle's stories, but from those of other authors as well...or so one of Chaldea's staff speculates.

Fan Translation: Height/Weight: 183cm ・ 65kg
Source: Sherlock Holmes Series
Area: England, the entire world
Alignment: Neutral ・ Good
Gender: Male
For argument’s sake, if his origin is the stories that were written of him, then there is a possibility that it would include not only Doyle’s novels but also their pastiches as well... according to gossip heard among Chaldea staff.

Bond 2 思案的かつ行動的、大胆かつ緻密、そして冷静沈着な男。



NA Localization: A man who is thoughtful yet decisive, daring yet grandiose, and always calm and collected. No mystery, crime, or intrigue can confound Holmes. Whether it be a terrifying murderer, an ancient curse, a monster in the dark of night, or an international secret society...he will always uncover its secrets, and if necessary vanquish it, for no blade is keener than the truth.

His existence is beyond mere humanity, and he can even be considered to be a manifestation of a wise man and a truth-seeker.

Fan Translation: Thoughtful and yet dynamic. Bold and yet precise. And also, a calm, level-headed man.
No sort of enigma, crime nor conspiracy may escape Holmes’ sight. Be that a fearsome murderer, an ancient curse, a monster of the dark night or a supranational secret society; he shall disclose them all--- and defeat them if necessary. By means of a sharp sword called truth.

That way of being has already exceeded the realm of man, and is indeed the embodiment of a “Wise One”; “One Who Reveals”.

Bond 3 天賦の見識:A++



NA Localization: Gift of Insight: A++
The ability to seek the truth of things. The sharp eye overlooks nothing.
While the principle is completely different, this skill grants the user foresight on the level of the Clairvoyance skill.

Baritsu: B++
An eastern martial arts technique used for practical combat.
Sherlock Holmes combines this skill with boxing in combat, and he is also versed in countering and throwing moves.
Under the right circumstances, it could even be used as the special move equal in power to revealing the True Name of a Noble Phantasm...

Fan Translation: Natural Insight: A++
The ability to perceive the true nature of things. His sharp eyes of observation will not overlook any sort of information. Although their principles are completely different, this can read into the future in a way that is similar to the future prediction of Clairvoyance.

Baritsu: B++
He has mastered an Oriental martial arts that is extremely suited to real combat.
Other than employing striking techniques that combine this skill with boxing, Sherlock Holmes also excels in counters and grappling throws.
If the conditions are right, he can even employ a special move that is on par with the release of the True Name of a Noble Phantasm, however...

Bond 4 『初歩的なことだ、友よ』

ランク:B 種別:対人宝具/対界宝具

NA Localization: 『Elementary, My Dear』
Rank: B  NP Type: Anti-Personnel/Anti-World
The Noble Phantasm Sherlock Holmes gained when he manifested as a Servant. A Noble Phantasm that sublimated the concept of investigation, the very source of his being.
Even if the mystery he faces is unsolvable, clues and paths leading to truth will always come to light.
Even should he come across a treasure chest with no key, the key is not lost, but rather is bound to be found somewhere in the world.
(However, the key does not, of course, spontaneously appear in his hands. Holmes must discover the key wherever it may be, alone or with the aid of another.)

Fan Translation: It's Elementary, My Friend
Rank: B Type: Anti-Unit / Anti-World
Elementary, My Dear.
The Noble Phantasm that Sherlock Holmes acquired upon manifesting as a Servant. His Origin - “Elucidation” - sublimated as a Noble Phantasm.
Even if the enigma he faces is truly an existence that cannot be explained, clues and paths for leading to the truth will always “appear”.
Even if there was a treasure chest whose key has been lost, said key will turn out to be “not lost”, and would certainly be possible to locate it somewhere in the world.
(However, as expected, it will not suddenly appear in his hands. Either Holmes or his collaborators must find it, wherever it may be).

Bond 5 本来は常時発動型の宝具だが、『Fate/GO』では真名開放を行う。



NA Localization: Normally, this Noble Phantasm is of a type that is always active, but in FGO, the True Name must be revealed.
The moment the True Name is revealed, a mysterious sphere appears, emitting a blinding light that illuminates its surroundings. Enemies are weakened, while allies are strengthened. Even if there is an enemy that normally is impossible to defeat, Holmes will discover some means to do so.

As a side note, while this NP's True Name is one of Holmes's best-known phrases, it first appeared not in Doyle's work, but in the stage play written by, directed by, and starring William Gillette. Doyle praised Gillette's Holmes as remarkable, better even than his own stories.
By the way, Holmes actually does use the word "elementary" in Doyle's short story "The Adventure of the Crooked Man." It's said that is where Gillette derived his inspiration.

Fan Translation: Originally a constantly active-type of Noble Phantasm but, in “Fate/GO”, he must first reveal it's True Name.
Upon release of its True Name, an unidentified “sphere” appears, emitting a dazzling light on the surroundings. It weakens the enemy camp and strengthens the ally camp. Even against an unbeatable opponent, Holmes will discover the answer to defeat them.

Also, its True Name is one of the most famous phrases associated with Holmes, yet the first instance in which it was attributed to him was not in Doyle’s novels, but actually in the stage play produced and scripted by William Gillette, who also starred in said play as Holmes himself. It has been said that Doyle praised the Holmes portrayed by Gillete as “surpassing my novels”.
Incidentally, the common assumption is that Gillete conceived it based on Holmes’ “Elementary” remark towards Watson from Doyle’s short story - “The Adventure of the Crooked Man”.

Extra 英霊ホームズは、彼のモデルとして伝えられるジョセフ・ベル博士やドイル自身、そして世界最古の探偵ヴィドックの似姿───



NA Localization: The Heroic Spirit Holmes does not take the form of Professor Joseph Bell (said to be the inspiration for the character Holmes), nor Doyle himself, nor of the world's first detective by the name of Detective Vidocq, but rather that of the main character (at least, an individual who acts exactly like him) of the Holmes stories.

Are the stories of Sherlock Holmes a complete fabrication by Sir Doyle? Or could they be a biography of a real-life Holmes, recorded by Dr. John H. Watson? Or something in between?
Holmes himself should be very well aware of it, but seems unwilling to go into detail, and should the topic ever come up, he evades it gracefully without fail.

Fan Translation: Heroic Spirit Holmes is a facsimile of Dr. Joseph Bell (his model), Doyle himself, and the world oldest detective, and Vidocq---
Not. He manifests as the protagonist of a novel series (or so we are lead to believe by his behavior).

In the end, is the story of Sherlock Holmes a literary creation invented by Sir Doyle, or something written down by Dr. John H. Watson as a romantic tale about the real Holmes, or maybe even a blend between these two?
At the very least, Holmes himself should know this. But he never speaks of it himself, and constantly evades the subject in a non-serious manner whenever it comes up.

  • He has the highest ATK values out of all Rulers.
  • He shares exact HP values at minimum with EMIYA (Alter), Chiron and Circe.
  • His Noble Phantasm's phrase of 'Elementary My Dear' comes from the catchphrase 'Elementary, My Dear Watson', which itself did not originate from Doyle's works, but from a play by William Gillette in 1899 based on the material- however, it has become so famous as to be associated with the original Sherlock Holmes works. It comes at the end of an explanation Sherlock Holmes gave to his assistant, Dr. Watson, when walking him through the deductions he had made.
  • The pose shown in his Noble Phantasm is actually the pose he uses when he is deep in thought, as illustrated in Sidney Paget's original Strand drawings.
  • His Stage 4 artwork refers to a scene in "The Adventure of the Naval Treaty".
