Gilgamesh's powers and abilities
Loose the Winds (風�??�?�つ, Kaze wo Hanatsu?) is an attack with one of the swords similar to Enki, charging at the enemy with great speed and slashing.
Clear the Storm (嵐�??�??�?, Arashi wo Harau?) is an attack with the golden axe, similarly charging, chopping down, and performing a spinning swing that shatters space.
Enurta's Ash Oil (�?��??�?��?�の灰油, Enuruta no Haiabura?) increases his strength temporarily.
Kishar: Right of the King (�??�?権�?��?��?��?��?�, �? Tadashi Ken Kisharu?) reduces damage taken for 4 actions including the one in which this is used.
Damkina: Right of the King (�??�?権�?��??�?��?��??, �? Tadashi Ken Damukina?) restores magical energy.
Enkidu: Chains of Heaven (天の�??, Ten no Kusari?) deals magic damage and stuns for two turns.
Gate of Babylon: King's Treasure (�??の財宝, �? no Zaihō?) deals magic damage and stuns.
Sword of Rupture, Ea (�?�?��?��?��?��?�, Kairi Ken Ea?) deals physical damage. Condition: You must be below 30% health.
The passive skills Golden Ratio (�?�??�??, Kogane Ritsu?) and Collector (�?��?��?��?��?�, Korekutā?) grant more Sakurament after battle and increase the chance of finding items after battle.
Gate of Babylon: The King's Treasure ( �??の財宝�?��?��??�?��?��??�?��?��??�?��?�, �? no ZaihōG�?to obu Babiron?) is the "Golden Capital" that the "King's Treasury" of Gilgamesh, and moreover the golden key connected to it His main Noble Phantasm, it is the storehouse that Gilgamesh built to store all the world's treasures he claimed in life, referred to as the "Divine Gate". It connects the space of reality to the vault, opening an "invisible door" between dimensions that allows for the contents to pass through upon their owner's command. Allowing for easy access to the items of the treasury, he is able to pick and utilize them as he pleases.The rank of the Noble Phantasm changes from "E~A++" due to it reflecting the ranks of the contents of the treasury. It is a Noble Phantasm that becomes more powerful with the user's wealth, but would accordingly not be useful without a wealth of valuables. It is also once referred to as an EX-ranked Noble Phantasm by Tokiomi Tohsaka due to containing Ea.The items passing through the gate form gold-glowing energy ripples in the empty air as they appear instantly He can summon items directly into his hand, pull out weapons from directly behind him, or prepare numerous weapons midair, loaded like bullets.This Noble Phantasm is named as such because Babylon has become synonymous with the "Capital of Sin" and the "Golden Capital".There are probably imitations like the Road of Babylon (�?��?��??·�?��??·�?��??�?��?�, Rōdo obu Babiron?) as well.
Although he possessed the treasury in life, he never thought about utilizing the treasures as projectiles until his first battle with Enkidu. Forced to draw out the treasures he had carefully stored away was initially humiliating for him, but eventually came to enjoy it and brought them out without regret. He later commented that his treasury was in disarray since meeting Enkidu, calling it a "harebrained habit" that Enkidu instilled upon him. Its usage is why Gilgamesh is of the Archer class, firing the Noble Phantasms like bullets to make him the Archer with the strongest arrows.While most Servants view their Noble Phantasms as treasured possessions, Gilgamesh freely launches them with the same carelessness as throwing a handful of stones. Producing an excellent ratio of destructive power to magical energy efficiency, the real cost is not within the Noble Phantasms acting as bullets but rather the mere activation cost of the Gate of Babylon. Compared to Heracles, the indomitable "ultimate expression of human perseverance", the treasury is the exact opposite as the infinite "ultimate expression of overwhelming force." He can ready numerous weapons, letting their hilts stick out when he is waiting and instantly showing the blades when about to fight. They move and take aim at the target according to Gilgamesh's will, allowing him to fire without having to even touch them.
Gilgamesh can send out as little as one or two weapons or enough at a single time that it becomes comparable to a torrent of "gushing water" directed at the opponent. He will increase the amount depending on the situation, opening the Gate wider (as in, generating more portals) to reflect his anger or when forced to become more serious. He will generally use weak treasures unless the situation should call for his highest class of treasures, such as in the case of Heracles' God Hand He can prepare and launch dozens, hundreds, even thousands if he is serious. Possessing an inexhaustible supply, he can fight multiple battles without a single repeat Noble Phantasm being witnessed. Upon firing them, he can allow them to pierce the ground after striking the target, causing a large amount of destruction with each weapon that is comparable to something being blown up by an explosive blast, or he can instantly return them to the vault before they hit the ground at such a speed that they appear to have been illusionary.He utilizes a Noble Phantasm to retrieve any weapons left on the battlefield, instantly dissipating and returning them to the vault. He can also leave them out if he wishes, such as when they have been "stained" by striking Caster's summoned creature.
Upon snapping his fingers or without even a gesture, the weapons can be continuously launched at the opponent without a break.Each weapon has the ability to cause certain death to an opponent, and they are shot with enough force to repel a swing from Berserker's large axe-sword.While it is possible to block many of the strikes, to do so without knowing the abilities of the weapons can be seen as suicidal. He will generally fight at long range while shooting projectiles from behind him directly at the opponent, but he can also freely move with the portals also moving with him.He can freely deploy the portals mid-air while piloting Vimana as well. When fighting at extremely close range, he shows the ability to loose weapons from above, below, and to the side of the opponent. He can also summon weapons completely around the target for a full 360 degree barrage that should generally leave not even a single trace of flesh from the opponent. When closed upon by a target, or simply to play with the opponent, he can freely draw weapons into his hands for melee combat.The ability to handle them depends upon the user's capability Gilgamesh makes use of the many unknown abilities of the weapons, and constantly switches them to keep his opponent off-guard.
Knight of Owner is considered to be a natural counter to the Gate of Babylon, but Lancelot is only able to keep up with Gilgamesh to such a degree because of his Mad Enhancement. While capable of playing around with Saber in close combat in the Fate route, he would be outclassed in a sword fight with Assassin, so he would not even attempt it.As he is a "king who possesses over a thousand weapons" rather than a "warrior who chose the path of taking a single Noble Phantasm to its ultimate limit", Shirou Emiya declares Gilgamesh to possess only one ability like himself. As an "owner" like Shirou, Gilgamesh is not a "wielder" able to use a weapon to its maximum potential in melee combat. Within Unlimited Blade Works, Shirou's swords are always ready and waiting, allowing him to be one step ahead of Gilgamesh who possesses the same ability. While Gilgamesh can defeat one who has mastered their weapon with his infinite weapons, Shirou is unable to accomplish that same feat because he lacks the skill, so Gilgamesh is the only enemy he can defeat.
He did not have any abilities to resist magecraft during life, so he only gains Magic Resistance as the class ability of the Archer class. He obtains C rank under Tokiomi, allowing him to completely nullify magecraft under two verses, but he is still susceptible to High Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals. It is lowered under Kirei due to his lack of magical energy, and remains at only the minimal level, rank E, that provides light damage mitigation against magecraft rather than full neutralization. The state of his Magic Resistance matters little, as he is able to neutralize most magecraft with his many items that defend against it. His armor and a shield are able to repel A rank magecraft with ease. Overall, he is much more likely to simply unleash a raging wave of Noble Phantasms against "mongrels" impeding the king by attempting to use large-scale spells, completely crushing them without even giving them the time to cast.
Gilgamesh has a high rank of Independent Action, rank A, allowing him to easily utilize his Noble Phantasms and remain in the world without Tokiomi's backup. He is able to easily ignore his Master's orders, making it possible to stroll around without making his Master aware of his whereabouts. The only way to command him is through the use of Command Spells, but his disposition that does not even contain an ounce of respect for his Master makes utilizing them idly a bad move. Utilizing Noble Phantasms of great power does require backup from his Master.
After being materialized, he gains the rank of A+, completely setting him apart from the rest of the Servants by allowing him to operate without a Master. Exceeding his previous rank, the support of the Master is unnecessary even while unleashing a large amount of magical power. It is an ability that bends the rules, and it allows for his continued materialization as a Servant even after the conclusion of the Holy Grail War for ten years. While he was always able to operate without regard for his Master, gaining a physical body is what allowed for him to remain materialized after the Holy Grail War. While he accepts energy supplied by Kirei from a number of orphans, he claims that the act was unnecessary overall.
He would normally possess the highest rank of Divinity among all Heroic Spirits due to being 2/3 God. He is at a level even exceeding Heracles, the son of Zeus who ascended to the Pantheon after death. The rank is instead decreased from A+ to B because of his hatred of the gods, who killed his only companion, Enkidu, unleashed the Bull of Heaven onto the earth, and caused him much trouble in his life.
He has the skill Golden Rule, being fated to a life that is filled with riches. It does not measure the percentage of gold in one's body, but the chance of attracting gold in one's life. The level of gold provided by rank A will make the user incredibly wealthy to the point where money trouble will be unknown, allowing him to live the life of a nabob. While it seems unrelated to battle, it plays a great role in arming him. Claiming all the world's treasures as his own, he obtained the originals of Noble Phantasms preserved in his treasury during that period.
He has the highest rank of Charisma with the influence to build a grand empire on a global scale. He is often praised as the greatest king, so his ability to command and lead great armies is excellent. Being such a rare talent, with even a B rank being sufficient enough to lead a nation, his A+ rank makes it no longer a matter of popularity or skill, but closer to something like sorcery or curse. His ego and self-confidence can surely boost the morale of any army led by him to an extremely high level, allowing them to gain a tremendous increase in abilities.
Star of Creation That Split Heaven and Earth-Enuma Elish : Performing the miracle of genesis, something that reveals creation - the beginning of everything, the attack opens an abyss capable of crushing anything. The center of the storm is not calm, but rather a hole to hell itself that returns all that enters its realm to the nothingness from which it originated. The wind pressure creates a vacuum that takes all things with form, the land, the atmosphere, and the sky, into the whirling void. The tumult of genesis takes everything that was nothing more than chaos, which could not form any meaning, and creates a new truth that divides and distinguishes Heaven, Sea, and Earth. Within the darkness where everything is returned to nothingness, only Ea is left to shine with brilliance like a Star of Creation amidst the destruction, the first thing illuminating the new world. The ability takes the world as a whole within the Reality Marble Ionioi Hetairoi, and cracks shatter and collapse it into the abyss like the ending of an hourglass. The entire world inside the Reality Marble would have been destroyed had the field not collapsed due to a lack of energy.
When Gilgamesh decides to use the full strength of Ea against Enkidu in Fate/Strange Fake, the World itself is sucked into the void created by the sword, and it begins tearing apart; Enkidu's own Enuma Elish, however, was able to hold the World together. The Sacred Prostitute once described the clash in ancient times as: "I felt as if the World was born seven times, and destroyed seven times."
He displays a different usage of it in Fate/EXTRA CCC, where he plants Ea in the ground, causing it to spin rapidly and instantly shatter the area where he is fighting. He is left standing far above the opponent with three enormous fields of force below him. Picking up Ea and lifting it above his head, the grounds are directed at the opponent and begin to rotate, causing a space-time ripple that causes space itself to fluctuate.Calling out Enuma Elish and thrusting Ea downwards, the fields begin rotating to the point where they merge, dwarfing the opponent as they crash down. The ability instantly defeats the opponent within the game, regardless of their status.
Sha Naqba Imuru: The Omniscient Omnipotent Star ( �?��?�な�??�??�?��?�の�??�?��?��?��??�?��??�?��?��?��?�, Zenchinaru ya Zen'nō no HoshiSha Nakupa Irumu?) is the mentality of Gilgamesh sublimated into a Noble Phantasm, said to have "spread across all corners of the world as if the brilliance of the stars, seeing through all creation." It is a "continuously active-type Noble Phantasm" that does not require its name to be invoked, but it is assumed that Gilgamesh keeps it intentionally restrained. Possessing tremendous efficiency, it can discern heavily concealed truths with a single glance, from that of the opponent's True Name and Noble Phantasms to possibly even seeing through a piece of the truth of the demise of human history in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.Upon releasing its True Name, it will work as a form of "instruction" for him to guide others with the most optimal tactics, simultaneously increasing the attack power and defense power of his whole team near his position.
Gilgamesh is a clairvoyance user with a "sense of 'sight' several levels above the ordinary."When facing him in a game like chess, he claims that even someone making advanced predictions and reading the flow of the game will have already lost at that moment. He does not read the future of the chess board, but instead gazes down upon and oversees it, allowing the correct move to always be visible to him. Even in something like a card game, the very minimum requirement to play against him on equal terms would be to draw the precise hand required. He can also see the possibilities of various parallel worlds should he so choose, but, as a Heroic Spirit, the Throne of Heroes normally adjusts his memories and knowledge to the world in which he is summoned in to keep him from being confused by multiple sets of memories. Even with this ability, his personality would cause him to reject certain world lines as nonsense, such as using clairvoyance to see something like a possibility of a world where he is swallowed by the mud of the grail.
