“It's hot! So I'm stripping.”

When most people think of spooky Servants, they think of Halloween ones. Not so fast, says Dobrynya, who is bound to spook most Masters’ rolls for ages to come! As a Rider with an AoE Buster Noble Phantasm, Dobrynya primarily acts as a force to kill both Dragons and Casters.

Dobrynya’s primary strength is her anti-Dragon trait. Via Berza Damask A for herself and Berza Burko EX for the party, she is capable of leveling a Dragon, especially with some support. She has fairly good Critical support with Eternal Young Warrior B+’s star generation and Berza Burko’s Critical Strength bonus. And she is fairly tanky with a Guts on Eternal Young Warrior.

Unfortunately, she is incredibly vanilla as a Servant, so she does not particularly excel in any one thing. Although her NP offers the ability to ignore defense, her damage in general is fairly low. Her NP gain is disappointing. And her niche is practically non-existent.

Dobrynya is a rather decent starting Servant, giving early access to a charge and help with the Dragon enemies prevalent in earlier nodes. She can also serve as an anti-Dragon support for Masters needing an extra boost against certain enemies. But above all, she is a catgirl, which makes her super important to summon!



Through a combination of two buffs to boost her anti-Dragon trait, Dobrynya can hit fairly hard against Dragon mobs. Unfortunately, there are very few Caster Dragons in the game. Furthermore, while she has her niche, it is a powermod niche resulting in far less damage than a supereffective niche from a Servant like Siegfried against neutral classes. Her anti-Dragon trait is best thought of as a support skill for other Servants to use.

Critical Support

Dobrynya both generates stars every turn and increases the Critical strength of her allies. Unfortunately for her, she is a Rider so distributing these to other Servants may be a challenge. 


Dobrynya has fairly good hit points, so can take a few hits. To add to that, she’s got a decent Guts skill on a short cooldown to extend the battle if necessary.


Low Damage

Dobrynya only has a single small steroid and no passives to boost her damage, so her Noble Phantasm does not hit as hard as other options. She will struggle against most non-Dragon waves, even with class advantage. 

Poor NP Gain

Probably most disappointing is that Dobrynya’s NP charge skill is only 20%. This makes her impossible to use for looping scenarios, and most farming. Even without that in consideration, she’s got poor hit counts on her Quick card and middling counts on her Extra cards. She will likely be a one-and-done Noble Phantasm user. 


Dobrynya simply is not special. Outside of her ability to buff another Servant’s Dragon damage, everything about her is run of the mill damage and crit skills, and none particularly effective either.

Typically a Master is going to want to use Dobrynya to support other Servants in killing Dragons. This would make her third skill crucial to level up, and used as early as possible in a battle. Her first and second skills have a 3-turn duration on all effects so they can be used early as well, especially her first which is used to boost Critical star drop rate.

  • Eternal Young Warrior B+ gives Dobrynya Guts, Debuff Immune, and generates Critical stars. This is her primary survival skill and is a hefty one at that. It’s likely safe to level this to level 6 for a few extra stars and cooldown reduction, but it should be leveled last as scaling only gives a couple more stars and a bit more guts HP.
  • Berza Damask A is Dobrynya’s steroid, both in a boost in Arts and Buster and a special damage boost against Dragon enemies. The Arts boost is relatively useless, but the Buster gives her NP a little more punch. This skill is useful if using her Noble Phantasm instead of her support, and is best leveled second to level 6 or so.
  • Berza Burko EX is Dobrynya’s bread and butter, both enabling a quicker access to a Noble Phantasm with a charge, and giving her allies support Critical damage and Dragon damage. The charge scales with level, making it important to level it to level 10 if planning to use her.

Craft Essence Recommendation

As a standard DPS Servant, Dobrynya works best with the standard Craft Essence recommendations. She can mix damage and earlier access to a gauge with Mixed Starting Gauge / Damage CEs, she can get full earlier access to CEs with Starting NP Gauge CEs, or with proper supports she can deal more damage with NP Damage CEs.

  • Aerial Drive / Golden Sumo: Boulder Tournament / Holy Night Supper / Partake with the King / Starry Nights: With a small self-charge, Dobrynya will have a bit easier time accessing her Noble Phantasm than otherwise. With a 50% charge, a max append 2 skill, her own charge, and a MC 10% charge, she can unleash her Noble Phantasm on the first turn. There is a possibility of getting two off if she has the right supports. These add a bit of damage to the equation. 
  • Kaleidoscope / The Imaginary Element / Dragon’s Meridian: Starting NP gauge always leads to earlier access to a Noble Phantasm. With a non-MLB Kaleidoscope, she can NP immediately with the help of her own NP charge skill.
  • The Black Grail: Dobrynya does not have the charge required to hit for many Noble Phantasms, so Masters may want to beef up the damage she does for the few times she manages to fire off her NP. A Black Grail is the easiest way to bulk it up.

Character Info

A famed dragon-slayer, and one of the valiant "Bogatyr" warriors portrayed in the epic songs known as bylina.

Dobrynya Nikitich was one of the greatest Bogatyrs ever to serve the legendary Sun Prince, Grand Prince Vladimir of Kiev. The only one to ever surpass him was Ilya Muromets, the strongest of all the Bogatyrs. He is best known for slaying the evil three-headed dragon Zmei Gorynych to rescue the princess of Kiev, and by legends about his wife Nastasia.

According to the stories in which the character appears, Nikitich is a man, which this Nikitich confirms. However, in this manifestation, she appears decidedly female. Whenever she is asked about this discrepancy, she just shrugs and says, "Yes, that's true."

Profile 1

Height/Weight: 165cm, 50kg (including her ears)
Origin: Bylina (Kievan series)
Region: Russia, Ukraine
Alignment: Neutral-Good
Gender: Female?
Often claims she can do just about anything.

Profile 2

A young warrior positively brimming with confidence. She is not the most eloquent speaker, but it's clear from talking to her that she's absolutely convinced there are very few things out there she's incapable of doing. Normally, this kind of belief would be walking a thin line between assuredness and reckless overconfidence, but Nikitich is levelheaded enough to admit when there are things beyond her purview.

Nikitich is quick to make decisions and never second-guesses herself. Once she decides to do something, she is on it right away, which isn't great for working in groups. Thus, on the occasion she is operating with a team, she leaves all the decision making up to the king or commander in charge and deliberately avoids doing too much thinking herself (which sometimes makes her seem as if she's spacing out.)

Unsurprisingly, her unshakeable confidence and strong initiative make her well suited to Independent Action; she's well suited for solo adventures and scouting missions.

Profile 3

According to bylina, Dobrynya Nikitich was born to nobility, and grew up into a refined young man under his widowed mother's love. She told him there were three things he was never to do, but driven by his adventurous spirit, he "borrowed" a set of armor and went on to have adventures that involved doing every one of those forbidden things.

Eventually, he managed to triumph over the evil three-headed dragon Zmei Gorynych over the course of two battles. When he won the second one, he also rescued the Grand Prince's niece, Princess Zabava, and was rewarded for his accomplishment with the princess's hand in marriage...even though he did not desire it.

Instead, he went on to marry another woman named Nastasia Mikulishna, the daughter of the giant Mikula Selyaninovich, and a legendary warrior in her own right. She is also known in another legend as Nastasia Nikulishna, where she waits many years for her husband's return.

In the Mikulishna legend, it's said that Nikitich and Nastasia do battle after Nikitich defeats Zmei Gorynych, only for Nastasia to win and shut Nikitich away in her pouch, after which they are married.

Profile 4

In the legends, Nikitich is a man, not a woman. So then, why did she materialize as a female Rider? Nikitich herself refuses to say, but a certain Chaldean staff member came up with three possible hypotheses.

First, it may just be that Nikitich's real life differs from her legends, much like Altria is known as Arthur Pendragon. Clean and simple.
Second, it may be that a malicious curse from Zmei Gorynych, the evil dragon she uses in her Noble Phantasm, is distorting her Spirit Origin. Definitely plausible.
And third, it may be that the Nikitich who was summoned is not actually the Nikitich of legend, but his wife, Nastasia (for the purposes of this game, we'll say she possesses traits from both her Mikulishna and Nikulishna incarnations) who is disguising her True Name by pretending to be her husband. We can imagine any number of reasons as to why this hypothesis might be true. For example, Nastasia might have worried that her young and courteous husband would be hugely popular with other women were he to materialize, or it could be a simple case of Chaldea's summoning system malfunctioning in some way.

While each hypothesis has some degree of possibility, there is no way to tell which, if any, may be true. All we can say for sure is that, as a Heroic Spirit, Dobrynya Nikitich acts exactly as one would expect from Dobrynya Nikitich, the dragon-slayer.

Profile 5

Eternal Young Warrior: B+
Dobrynya Nikitich always remains young. Some people believe it's because her mount has a power to keep his rider from aging. This skill has the same effects as Natural Body and Fair Youth.

Berza Damask: A
Manifests Nikitich's second Noble Phantasm as a skill, taking full advantage of her legendary weapon and armor.

Berza Burko: EX
Manifests Nikitich's third Noble Phantasm as a riding skill.
Nikitich's steed (read: dragon) talks a lot. Like, a whole lot.
(It's now believed that her mount's anti-aging power has become part of Nikitich herself, and is therefore separate from her Eternal Young Warrior skill.)

[Zmei Gorynych]
Rank: A
NP Type: Anti-Personnel/Anti-Army
Range: 1 - 50
Maximum Targets: 1/200
The Evil Dragon Breathes Sin.
Nikitich's first Noble Phantasm. Nikitich summons Zmei Gorynych, the legendary evil three-headed dragon, and has it incinerate her foes with flame from all three of its heads.
If that weren't enough, Nikitich herself then swoops in while her foes are still reeling from the dragon's attack to finish them off with her steel. Even if an enemy is able to withstand three full torrents of dragon's breath, there are few who can also withstand a finishing blow from such an incredibly heavy weapon.

Bond Level 1 Huh?
Master. Oh right. You're called Master.
Being a Servant sure is complicated.
Bond Level 2 I see. So a Master is like a beloved steed. I think I got the gist of it.
Bond Level 3 To Bogatyrs, mounts are imperative.
They are companions for your adventure, at times you can converse with them, and they must be treated with utmost care.
In other words you, Master, are similar to that.
Am I wrong?
Bond Level 4 Are you wondering about my ears? No clue myself.
By the way...Dobrynya Nikitich's wife was the daughter of a giant. She was closer to nature than humans. That may be the reason for my animal characteristics.
Hm? You're wondering why the wife's characteristics would be visible on the husband?
They say couples start to look alike, right?
Bond Level 5 Now come on, Master. It's time for adventure. For battle.
Until the moment humanity is restored, I will be with you.
Don't worry. You can do it.
If I say you can do it, you can!
Conversation 1 Let’s go.
We're going to go somewhere.
Hurry up and get ready.
Conversation 2 Master and Servant.
Hm. Hmmm...
Conversation 3 Master.
That animal named Fou sometimes lunges at me from a great distance...
It would be dangerous if he did that to ordinary humans. Right. Their ribs...
He's just warmed up to me? He doesn't normally do that?
I see.
Conversation 4 (Georgios) Saint Georgios!
I never thought I would meet you!
I'm so happy!

Chaldea's such a wonderful place.
I must receive some blessed words from her.
Conversation 6 (Odysseus) It's such a pleasure drinking with Odysseus!
We have the same interests.
I feel we're not strangers at all.
Conversation 7 (Anastasia, Anastasia & Viy) Madam Anastasia.
O Russian princess, you are truly beautiful.
It's like the beauty of the northern lands took shape.
Come over here. I'll pat you on the head.
Conversation 8 (Any Altria Pendragon) The legendary King Arthur...
I had...
No idea...
They were a woman!
Conversation 9 (Arthur Pendragon (Prototype)) King Arthur...
A man.
Hey, wait a minute...
Conversation 10 Chaldea is full of strong fighters. Very nice!
All right, let's do this. I'm going to get serious.
Let's have a match!

Tamamo Vitch Koyanskaya...
Um, well...

My one and only. The love of my life. Heh.

Let's see...hmmm...
Oh. I don't like to be kept waiting. Yeah.
About the Holy Grail The Holy Grail.
I don't know what that is.

Get yourself ready.

You can call me Dobrynya or Nikitich...whichever pleases you.
