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


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

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。



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++



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

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。



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───



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.

April Fool   Detective-Type Servant

A brilliant, world-famous detective. He likes to keep his deductions secret, which can be most infuriating. He's good at baritsu and shooting beams.
