Rider is a Rider-class Servant able to be summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru. She makes her debut in the Dead Heat Summer Race! Event.
Her True Name is Artoria Pendragon, or rather the Altered version of the King of Knights. While normally a Saber-class Servant, she has changed in both appearance and Saint Graph in response to the Summer season, becoming a maid and disguising herself in order to have her master spend a wonderful summer.

Intelligence: Artoria Alter retains the same general mindset like her normal altered self despite the class change, though her personality upon changing into a maids wear has caused her to become much stricter. She has also gained a pistol and later a sniper rifle to use in conjunction with her sword, using them either in combos or simply from a distance, even doing so while steadying herself on a moving motorcycle across water. She is even capable of using her Excalibur in combat while it’s in the form of a balloon sword and mop, and also has the skill and training others to reform their “improper fighting styles” despite her training being too harsh to the point of causing damage to them.
Weaknesses: Cannot fight in Spirit Form.
You can’t run. The relentless magic bullet will race across the water’s surface. Lock.
|~ Maid Alter using her Noble Phantasm|
Secace Morgan: Sword of Tenacious Burning Victory: The Noble Phantasm of Artoria Alter while in her Swimsuit form. It is a combination of her Excalibur Morgan and the short sword Secace, a dagger Arthur was said to only be able to use in a life or death situation in battle. The two weapons change form throughout Artoria Alter’s ascensions, with Secace going through several firearm forms of various shapes and form while Excalibur Morgan starts out as a balloon sword and mop alternatively before going back to its proper sword form. The two are combined into a sniper rifle that Artoria Alter uses to blast her foes away before heading in the employer's territory.
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 own magical energy for spells. Due to her conviction of being a free maid in service who should not be forced onto someone else, Artoria Alter has obtained this skill at an extraordinary rank of EX, effectively allowing her to operate without ever needing a master.
Magic Resistance: The ability to completely nullify and shrug off oncoming magical attacks. Unlike the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. Artoria Alter’s B-Rank in this ability is enough to cancel spells with a chant below three verses. Even if she targeted by High-Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals, it is difficult for her to be affected.
Riding: The class skill of Rider and Saber class Servants, allowing them to ride any mount and modern vehicle with superb skill. Artoria Alter’s B rank Riding allows her to ride most mounts and vehicles, such as the motorcycle she wields in her Noble Phantasm, with supernatural skill despite it not having existed in her time. However, creatures on the level of Phantasmal Beasts are beyond her control.
Coaching: Artoria in this form has become a sort of home tutor, having changed to that of a strict and cold-blooded deposition. Through her strict guidance, she tries to reform improper fighting styles of others, though her Spartan-like training causes those who are inflicted by this to suffer damage.
Reloaded: The water pistol Artoria uses is from her own mana. It acts similar to that of the Mana Burst (Water) skill but is used for something else. In Artoria Alter’s case, she uses it in a manner of spraying her attacks and, due to the nature of this skill, allows her to keep shooting for as long as she wants and, when chained together with Coaching, can potentially even make her shots a one-hit kill.
Summer Sweeper: A skill that have been converted from her Mana Burst for use of domestic helpers, showcasing Artoria Alter’s skills as an expert of washing anything with water. It increases her agility while anyone around her are supervised, increasing their morale in the process.
