    lowly peasants don't deserve best archer title desu

    anyways, idk what you're talking about, from what i remember Karna failed miserably at that syamvar

    I definitely remember him matching Arjuna trick-for-trick until the last one, and then everyone mocked him for daring to compete against a kahatriya as a charioteer's son, with the exception of Duryodhana.

    i know. it's just that there's a debate among mahabharata enthusiast, especially between Arjuna gang and Karna gang; whether Karna just fail or that Karna was denied recognition.

    The only heroes I really liked as a kid were Heracles (thanks disney) and Odysseus (thanks weird art teacher in elementary school), and I love Fate Herc. So I’m good, unless Odysseus really shits the bed.

    But when it comes to representation for my country though, fucking lol. Two lostbelts happening in neighbor countries, one of them having history of war and annexing shenanigans with us, and all I got was 33% of a pseudoservant, and thats being generous.

    Honestly, "misused" heroes like Boudica and similar will mostly be a case of there just being no way around the story in question not focusing on them. They're just side-characters in a visual novel-lite that up until near the end of Part 1 didn't have much space to share with anyone who wasn't a protagonist. Going back to Boudica, I always wonder like, what did people expect from that context anyway, I get if the criticism is her interlude (although I don't care since it's just a joke and I enjoyed it since I'm a bad person), but there's just no way to work into Boudica's dark side properly if the story is not about her.

    Same with heroes in similar situations in FGO, imo anyway.




    that aside, my personal irl hero would be Da Vinci and I really love his depiction in FGO so far

    I forgot to mention that my own "hero" growing up was Arsène Lupin and I hope that if he ever does get in then he'll be done justice.

    A heist-themed event could be pretty dope.
    McJon01: We all know that the real reason Archer would lose to Rider is because the events of his own Holy Grail War left him with a particular weakness toward "older sister" types.

    A mystery isn't a heist, get your eyes checked, old man.

    I'm talking about a heist pulled off by Chaldea itself. An opportunity to let our phantom thief flag fly.

    Bonus points if one of the major opponents is a Holmes that isn't Chaldea's.

    No, and I doubt they ever will, either they're not from the more widespread sagas, or there are other, much more famous characters already representing the sagas in which they do appear.
    When it comes to my second- and third-favourite heroes, though, I really can't complain.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan in the distant past.

    Amakusa portraied as the villain of the story was really a bad choice

    I wonder do you have your favourite servant from your country or from a different country in Fate?
    (From Italy)

    Rome People are good (well Caesar aside with the nonsense story "I'm not good as Saber", but at least he's funny)
    Requiem now has Borgias so let's see

    Hopes in a future Garibaldi, He was the man who unified Italy

    Cavour did more work than Garibaldi, at least on the political front.
