    How exactly do werewolves work in the Nasuverse? Are they more comparable to Dead Apostles or to things such as oni?

    Is Vasavi Shakti supposed to be a direct upgrade to Brahmastra Kundala?

    Last I read, Brahmastra Kundala was an anti-nation AOE nuclear fire attack whereas Vasavi Shakti was an anti-god single strike spear of light. Those things are clearly not direct upgrades of each other

    I don't understand why F/A animated Brahmastra Kundala as 'super kfc bbq' move and Vasavi Shakti as 'bigger melt the world super kfc bbq' move, is this canon?

    Extella's VS is a lightning strike. Brahmastra Kundala has been a spear throw of giant flame explosion in every of its appearance.

    What is even canon

    When you boiled down to it many big NPs are just giant fire/explosion.

    Considering that it's Indra's spear so it makes sense for it to be a lightning strike

    The apocrypha anime seems to have mixed up VS and BK

    Vasavi Shakti is based on FGO's NP animation. Brahmastra Kundala has always been spear throw + fire.

    One is a beam, one is Gae Bolg Fire. It's fine, if not inspired.

    I'm not finding issue with the originality of it, I'm confused why Apocrypha made them Kenny Rogers' roasters medium and large ver rrspectively

    Well Karna loves to infuse his attacks with fire, so it's a lightning bolt coated with fire wall.

    In Extra Vasavi Shakti isn't a lightning bolt either but a death ray that almost certainly looks like it's related to sun that after it hits comes to a a big explosion cloud of fire. Then in GO it still looks like that despite it being it being anti unit as the Apo version. Extella is the only exception in making look like VS it has lightning effects and make it look like a laser beam instead of a sun beam.

    Question about Medea's summoning of Kojirou.

    In the FAQs listed with what translated bits of Complete Material III we have, it feels like there is a contradiction regarding how Kojirou was summoned.

    Q: After Caster summoned Assassin (Sasaki Kojirou), was she branded with Command Seals? I ask because I don’t think she ever used a Command Spell on Assassin.

    A: She had something similar to a Command Spell. Though, as a fake Master with a fake Servant, it wasn't something as powerful as a true Command Spell. While she may not originally have received any Command Spells, Caster may have skillfully borrowed the power of the Greater Grail to craft herself an imitation.
    Suggests that she was able to summon Kojirou solely through her own efforts. However,

    Q: Caster summoned Kojirou as an irregular Master, but was there a person who would have summoned Assassin as a regular Master (someone with the sign of the bruise)? Or was that Zouken?

    A: Caster found him before he could do the summoning....
    While this does not explicitly say that she needed a Master candidate to summon Kojirou, I can't think of much else as to why she would go out of her way to do so. Only other thing that comes to mind is that she wanted to prevent them from summoning Assassin on their own, but, barring a situation like Shirou and Ryuunosuke, I don't see how the time spent tracking this person down wasn't better spent just summoning Kojirou in the first place, unless somehow the amount of time it would take to meddle with the HGW to let her summon an Assassin was significantly longer than what the Master candidate would have needed.

    That said, wouldn't another person then be picked as a potential Master candidate?

    You have to remember the summoning of Assassin isn't random chance like the rest, thanks to it's catalyst it's the only class you know is guarnteed along with Berserker.

    Sorry, but I don't see the point that you're trying to make. Servants shouldn't normally be able to summon other Servants, but Medea was able to pull that off.

    You were asking why Medea would take the time to hunt Assassin's Master before the summoning because you think it be a waste of time unless it's a Last Master situation. Now thinking about I thought you were talking about that it's irrelevant because it's a random chance but after rereading it looks like I was misinterpreting your question and you were asking why waste the time instead of summoning her Assassin first. I think the answer for that is because her Assassin is a fake, not properly what was supposed to be summoned, thus I gather her preparation for it was complicated tho I don't know how. Also if Assassin's Master tried to summon Assassin I think you would get a similar event as what happened in HF I think tho that's just my speculation.
