|~ Danzou's view on her relationship with her Master|
Assassin is an Assassin-class Servant the protagonist can summon during the events of the Epic of Remnant chapter of Fate/Grand Order.
Assassin's True Name is Katou Danzou, a famous ninja, thief, and spy from Japan's Edo Period. Known as "Flying Danzou" and "Kite Danzou" for her use of kites in her many missions during the final years of the Sengoku Era, her origins have been greatly disputed over the course of history. While she was famous for supposedly utilizing karakuri dolls as part of her equipment, in truth she is a karakuri doll herself, a lifeless puppet designed and molded by the sorcerer Kashin Koji and the first Fuuma Kotarou to independently conduct numerous operations without betraying his involvement in these acts. While she lacked sentience in life, her many exploits carved her name into the Throne of Heroes as a Heroic Spirit.

|~ Danzou utilizing her Noble Phantasm|
Mechanical Illusionary Art - Bull Swallowing: A Mystic Code installed in Danzou by her creators, Danzou can create a massive vacuum blade that sucks in everything in range by putting her hands together and allowing them to rotate rapidly. Upon being drawn into Danzou's hands, they are subsequently pulverized by the crushing force of the vacuum until they're virtually invisible, creating the illusion that she had swallowed a bull or a similarly large object whole. She can also use this on a smaller scale to manipulate the air and create the illusion that "an object had been erased before one's very eyes" and "making erased objects appear again".
Black Arts Decapitation Method - Moonflower: Danzou's second Noble Phantasm, its effects are unknown due to her refusal to use it for being too gruesome.
- Presence Concealment: The ability to erase one's presence and become difficult to detect through mundane or magical means. Danzou possesses an A-Rank in this ability through her shinobi training, allowing her to remain virtually undetected for as long as she wishes, but will be immediately revealed once she begins her attack.
- Synthetic Limbs (Doll): A skill that represents how much of one's body has been replaced by mechanical parts like that of a doll or a mannequin. Due to being a karakuri doll, Danzou has a very high rank in this skill.
- Ninjutsu: A skill that represents one's mastery of ninjutsu, the secret arts of assassination, torture techniques, stealth, combat, infiltration, and other skills known to be utilized by shinobi. Having been taught by the first Fuma Kotarou, Danzou is an exceptionally skilled shinobi, possessing an A Rank in this ability.
