|~ Aśvatthāma and his rage|
Archer is a Archer-class Servant able to be summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order, first appearing in the fourth Lostbelt as an enemy Servant, Yuga Kshetra.
Lancer's True Name is Aśvatthāma, one of the major characters in the Indian epic Mahabharata and one of the avatars of Shiva. He lined up with Karna at the Mahabharata, and was called the strongest Brahmin warrior. In the great war sung in the epic, he like his father, stuck to Duryodhana’s side, and unfolded a lurid conflict with the five Pandava brothers together with Karna. After all the influential men of his own army, including Karna, died, he broke his pledge as a warrior maddened with rage, and carried out a night assault. It is said he massacred thousands of people.

|~ Aśvatthāma using his Noble Phantasm|
- Sudarshan Chakra Yamaraj: The Chakra that Stirs Up My Raging Flames: Unusually, he made a weapon he didn’t possess in life, that he couldn’t possess, into a Noble Phantasm. He who has a huge chakram in his hand, at the time of being summoned as a Servant, freely manipulated this weapon, and continued engraving it in his memory as a warrior. In other words, all of his usage of the chakram is self-taught, an original that wasn’t taught by anyone.
- Mahākāla Shakti: O Great Time, Revolve this Moment: Aśvatthāma's second Noble Phantasm. It's a part of Shiva's Authority, giving him the ability to interfere with time and send other people to different points in time. It's normally near impossible to use as the magical energy cost is extremely high, so he's only able to use it when contracted to Arjuna Alter. Additionally the act of time travel and breaking the world's law would normally be impossible unless the world is unstable in the first place.
- Magic Resistance: An innate ability that grants protection against magical effects. Unlike the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. Archer has a stellar A-Rank in this ability, rendering him virtually invulnerable to all modern magi's spells and even of Caster's from the Age of Gods. This also applies to indirect magic attacks, such as magical hypnosis, petrification, and spatial manipulation.
- Independent Action: The ability to remain independent and exist in the world without the magical energy supplied by a Master, allowing the Servant to act autonomously and the Master to save their magical energy for spells. Archer's Rank in this skill is EX, meaning he needs no Master to act and can use high-cost abilities, including his Noble Phantasm.
- Divinity: The measure of one's Divine Spirit aptitude, reflected in high ranks by the user becoming part Divine Spirit. At A-rank, it is even an indicator as one who has reached the Throne of Gods. Additionally, it possesses another effect that allows one to reduce "Anti-Purge defense" in proportion to the rank of their Divinity, allowing them to break through defensive abilities such as Protection of the Faith and Saver's Enlightenment of the Sacred Fig. Archer have an A+ Rank in this skill due to being an avatar of Shiva.
- Personification of Rage: He whose half body houses Shiva, once his rage burns will never stop until he defeats his enemy. Due to being in constant state of anger, he has EX rank of this skill.
- Chintamani: The jewel embedded in his forehead since he was born. With this, he was able to defend himself from demonic creatures and beasts. Also, he handed the stone over as a proof of surrender. He has B rank of this skill.
- Violation of Chivalry Code: The oath that was raised between warriors, in the Mahabharata, was continuously trampled. Vengeance called vengeance, and offense made offense proliferate. Ashwatthama, who was too furious, performed a forbidden night assault, and brought down the enemies. He has A rank of this skill.
- Maharata: Something in which his anecdote as the best warrior appearing in the Mahabharata, extolled to be ranked equal with Karna and Arjuna. By combining it with Violation of the Chivalry Code, and Personification of Rage, he becomes more of a mad warrior than a Berserker. He has A+ rank of this skill.
