Table of Contents


“You’re saying I’m taller than when I was alive? Is that so...”

Sometimes a Servant is an accurate representation of their real life counterpart. Other times, they are like Napoleon, a massive 6’2 (189 cm) Archer Servant who is nothing like the French general who almost took over Europe. Sporting his giant cannon, Napoleon serves as a powerful AoE Buster anti-Divine force who doesn’t care about anyone’s pesky little invincibility skill.

As a Servant, Napoleon serves as an all around powerhouse who both rallies his party to victory and can provide general damage himself. Both Charisma of Triumphant Return B and Firepower Support (Cannon) B+ boost general damage for the party via a 3-turn attack up and a 1-turn NP Strength up, allowing for his teammates to shine. He also can provide decent critical support, offering a hefty Critical Star drop rate buff for a turn to his allies and passively generating 10 stars of his own with Light of Possibility B. But his real chance to shine comes when he unleashes his Noble Phantasm with multiple boosts, including an additional 20% attack on Charisma of Triumphant Return, and supereffective damage against Divine Enemies. Once he unleashes this, there will be no stopping him as he has an Ignore Invincibility on Light of Possibility, and his Noble Phantasm ignores defense.

However, all great leaders have their flaws, and Napoleon’s deadly march into Russia is no exception. With rather low HP for his rarity, and no hard survival skills, he lacks in durability making his cannon seem more like it was made of glass. Further, he has rather moderate Noble Phantasm Gauge gain making him slightly more difficult to max out, although this is partially compensated for by a 30% battery on Light of Possibility.

Napoleon works as a generally available 5-star Archer who is capable of destroying heavy Saber waves. Masters would find great use in making him either a primary damage dealer or a critical star support.


Great Support

Napoleon provides quite a lot of damage support to his team, offering them a three-turn attack buff and a one-turn Noble Phantasm damage buff. By also providing them with a hefty sum of stars, Napoleon truly lives up to his name as a military leader.

Great Damage

Napoleon’s Buster Noble Phantasm not only provides decent AoE damage, but can also hit divine targets for bonus damage depending on his overcharge. All party-wide buffs also benefit himself, and he also gets a bonus 20% damage from his Charisma. Unfortunately, the Charisma only boosts him for 1 turn, and the rest of the party for 3, so to make full use of it one would need to use Napoleon’s cards on an earlier wave, or at an earlier stage in a harder encounter.


Napoleon’s best aspect is his consistency. No matter what the enemy has on them, be it defensive buffs, evasion, or invincibility, Napoleon has a counter for it. This allows him to deal the same amount of damage to enemies regardless of the fight, with a potential for more against Divine enemies. As an added bonus, his Noble Phantasm’s “Ignore DEF” buff lasts for one full turn, meaning any cards he uses after his Noble Phantasm will also ignore Defense.


No Durability

With a high attack stat, Napoleon compensates with a lower HP stat making him a squishy target. He has no defensive buffs, no hard evasions, nor particularly anything to mitigate enemy damage. He will need outside protection from support to survive longer fights, or alternatively subscribe to the theory that the best defense is a good offense.

Moderate NP Gain

While Napoleon has a decent self charge, his hit counts and base gain rates are relatively low. While they are by no means terrible, it may be difficult to charge up his gauge fully without outside support or Craft Essences.

Stacked Servant Pool

Unfortunately for Napoleon, the Archer Servant pool has many good options, and it is very hard for him to find his niche over other cheaper alternatives. He is still a good Servant in his own right, but outside of Divine enemies he has issues finding a spot he particularly shines in.

Napoleon’s skills all require a military commander’s level of decision making. Each skill in his kit has an effect which would benefit the party in general if deployed early, or an effect which would benefit Napoleon directly if saved until his Noble Phantasm turn. All skills will both benefit team damage and individual damage, and are best leveled up to prioritize gauge gain first.

  • Charisma of Triumphant Return B is Napoleon’s primary steroid. This skill is a challenge to master as it provides the rest of his party a 3-turn attack buff, and himself a 1-turn attack buff. Should he wait too long to fire it, the party does not benefit, but if he uses it too early he may not be able to use it on his Noble Phantasm. Level this skill second to however high a Master can afford.
  • Firepower Support (Cannon) B+ serves both to increase the party’s Noble Phantasm strength and Critical Star generation. Ideally this would be fired off on Napoleon’s Noble Phantasm turn as it only lasts a single turn. This does not scale as well as his other skills so can be left at a lower level if necessary, and leveled last.
  • Light of Possibility B not only manages to serve as a self charge for Napoleon that scales with level, but also provides passive star regeneration and three turns of ignore invincibility. This skill can be tricky to know when to fire as he would want the ignore invincibility during an enemy invincibility turn, but if he waits too long the party will not benefit from the star generation. As a Noble Phantasm charging skill, this is crucial to level up to max and to level first to take benefit of the full 30% charge.

Craft Essence Recommendation

As Napoleon has a 30% charge and a damaging Noble Phantasm, Hybrid Damage / Starting Gauge CEs are his best bet to maximize his potential. If one does not have the support to boost him the last 20-30%, Starting Gauge CEs can provide him an all-in one package to charge. If one primarily wants to use him for his Critical Star support skills, a Passive Star Regeneration CE could work wonders on him.

  • Starry Nights / Partake with the King / Aerial Drive / Holy Night Supper / Golden Sumo: Boulder Tournament: As Napoleon has a self-charge, a Master would prefer to boost his damage and still have early access to his Noble Phantasm. Napoleon is lacking in Buster skills, so Craft Essences which boost his Buster are preferred.
  • Kaleidoscope / The Imaginary Element : Without support, Napoleon will struggle to fill up his gauge. By giving him at least 70% starting charge, he can fill the rest of the gauge up himself for early deployment of his Noble Phantasm.
  • A Fragment of 2030: Napoleon generates up to 10 stars passively for 3-turns, which is a lot but often not enough to have some high probability crit cards. A Fragment of 2030 solves this by offering another 8-10 stars per turn passively per turn, in addition to whatever stars are generated from other attacks.

Character Info

A man of possibilities.
The iconic, ideal hero, formed from the expectations of the people.

The first emperor of France.
He ruled over much of Europe at one point, but his reign ultimately collapsed in the end.
His tempestuous and dramatic life was not solely a result of his personal ambition and ability, but was also influenced by the will of the people. At least, that is how the Throne of Heroes has defined Napoleon the Heroic Spirit.

Thus, the Napoleon that has manifested always acts as a man who answers to someone's hopes and desires.

Profile 1

Height/Weight: 189cm, 92kg
Origin: History, Legend of Napoleon
Region: Europe
Alignment: Neutral-Good
Gender: Male
When summoned as a Rider, he apparently shrinks.

Profile 2

During his lifetime, he was one who fought for the hopes and dreams of all around him. He rose to power as emperor with a great deal of support from the people. Even after he was exiled to the island of Elba, he returned when the people cried out for an emperor, and then when the people rejected the emperor, he once more fell to ruin.

Napoleon the Heroic Spirit answers pleas, responds to desires, and does what is expected of him to accomplish whatever he takes on. Through the acknowledgement of various Napoleonic legends and becoming an embodiment of possibilities for humanity (apex primates), the man manifests into this world as a Servant.

Profile 3

Supposedly, the word "impossible" does not exist in his dictionary.
Supposedly, he met Iskandar amid the pyramids.
Supposedly, he destroyed the Sphinx of Giza by bombarding it.
Supposedly, the French Revolution was a conspiracy created by a secret society, with which he was deeply involved.

The man spent his entire life serving as the people's ideal, and so all the legends about him were interpreted as truth and etched into his being, making him a man who makes the impossible possible. This means he is pretty much a sort of superhuman.

Profile 4

Light of Possibility: B
A skill quite similar to Pioneer of the Stars and, to a certain degree, Innocent Monster.
All the legends pertaining to him, whether they be true or not, are all accepted to create an idealized version of the Heroic Spirit Napoleon. Upon his manifestation, he acts as, and ultimately becomes, the embodiment of expectation and possibility for all.
"Yeah, I guess I did that too."
The light of a rainbow.
Any enemy who encounters him is sure to see a rainbow streak across the sky.

Imperial Privilege: B
As he became the first French emperor, he possesses Imperial Privilege. However, in this game, this skill is typically not used.

Profile 5

[Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile]
Rank: A
NP Type: Anti-Army
Range: 1 - 99
Maximum Targets: 100

An Arc of a Rainbow that Announces a Triumphant Return.
An artillery Noble Phantasm that shares the same name as the French triumphal arch.
The possibilities inherent in humanity (apex primates) are transformed into a cannon shell, which streaks through the sky like a rainbow when fired.
Using the Heroic Spirit Napoleon's very being as its base and adding in the legend that he bombarded the Sphinx of Giza, it has become a Noble Phantasm.
Its outward appearance is a one-handed, reconfigurable cannon. Based on the legend of him destroying the Sphinx, this attack is particularly effective against Divinity.

Profile 6

Unlock after clearing Lostbelt 2: Gotterdammerung and reaching Bond Lv5

He's never been particularly concerned with the stories that were told about his life. Corsica, Paris, Waterloo...all of that has been put to rest. Now that he has manifested as a Servant and an idealized version of Napoleon Bonaparte that bears little resemblance to his historical self, he has made the conscious decision to not simply be a ghost who clings to the past.

Should the people heap all their dreams upon Napoleon, so be it. By holding onto that conviction, the man of today offers all for the people who live in the present and future.

By the way... He has a bad habit of falling for a particular woman of his choosing every time he manifests. At least that's what he claims in the Scandinavian Lostbelt. His words and actions will need to be carefully observed to determine if that habit of his gets carried over when he manifests as a Heroic Spirit in Chaldea.

Level up D'accord, Maître. All there is for us is to advance!
Ascension 1 Okay, now.
I do feel comfortable with something like this. Having an open collar all the time isn't bad, but I prefer this better.
Ascension 2 Ascension, huh? Thanks for taking good care of me, Maître!
Ascension 3 Ha ha, how's that!?
I look good, right? This was the style back in the day! Hm? What about my hat?
Well obviously, when it comes to cannons and hats, the bigger, the better!
Ascension 4 Victory is good. A victorious return is also good.
But remember: nothing lasts forever. There will be a day when defeat comes.
Hm? What would I do when that happens, you ask?
Haha! It's simple!
I'll crawl and struggle to stand once again. After that, I just need to march once more toward victory!
Bond Level 1 Phew.
Cigars are good. They clear my mind.
Maître, care for a puff? Hm? You're underage?
Oh I see. I guess you don't have much of a choice, then. Something to look forward to when you come of age, then.
Bond Level 2 Maître, do you read?
Books are nice. They enrich one's life.
But these so-called e-books are no good...
Don't you agree?
If you read a boring book, you wouldn't be able to throw it in exasperation.
What? Throwing a book is bad manners?
Hahaha! You're absolutely right!
Bond Level 3 I don't look or act like an emperor?
'Course not. The me that you see right now is the me of today. Emperor Napoleon is a person from the past.
I'm just an idolized individual given the name Napoleon Bonaparte. I don't want to be a ghost who dwells on the past.
By the way...I see that there's a good number of emperors and kings as Servants here, but they're not all just poseurs, right?
Bond Level 4 I'm a Heroic Spirit.
If humans place their many dreams on Napoleon's shoulders, so be it. I've already decided that I would give my all to everyone who lives in the present and future. Haha. There's no need for you to get all worked up. You just need to stay yourself and keep going.
Bond Level 5 Come, Maître, my partner.
Let's go forge a new legend.
If possible, a glorious legend that everyone desires.
Conversation 1 This may not be my place to say this, but you should take adequate rest. Sleep when you're tired.
Then again I won't stop you if you want to let loose and have fun!
Conversation 2 My partner, I'll follow you anywhere.
No need to hold back!
Conversation 3 My past self supposedly caused quite the stir commanding the Grande Armée. Unfortunately, as an Archer, I do not possess a Grande Armée Noble Phantasm. Sorry!
Conversation 4 I'm taller than in my past life? Oh really?
Conversation 5 (Iskandar, Alexander) The real Iskandar... Is it really Alexander the Great!?
Aw shucks, you got me there.
Finally...he's neither a mirage nor illusion. I'm finally face-to-face with the man himself!
Conversation 6 (Edmond Dantes) The Count of Monte Cristo...
I see, Edmond Dantès...
No, I'll go see him later, since it might start a serious exchange of fire.
I didn't save him from imprisonment. Naturally, he must despise me.
The guy here now isn't the kind of person who would come and attack me? Really?
Conversation 7 (Charles-Henri Sanson) Sanson!
Is he THE Sanson, Monsieur de Paris!?
Ah...what a coincidental meeting, er...
You know, that guy never addressed me as "Your Majesty."
Conversation 8 (Marie Antoinette, Marie Antoinette (Caster)) Hm? What!?
Queen Marie Antoinette!? What a surprise...!
Hmmm, I see...
The symbol of royal authority...the White that's what it means...
I may not be the right person to say such a thing, but...yeah, it must have been tough.
Conversation 9 (Archer of Shinjuku, Clear Pseudosingularity I: Shinjuku) Hey old man! Yeah, you!
I hear that you have an interesting nickname.
Something about being the "yours truly of crime."
So in all seriousness... What kind of person are you really?
Conversation 10 (Hektor, Achilles, Paris, Odysseus) Ah...ohhh!
The hero of the Trojan War!
Wonderful! I love the "Iliad!"
Likes The world is chock full of things I love!
Cigars, books... Good women are nice too...
Dislikes Anything but pugs for me.
Well,'s not that I don't like them, but...
I do love Joséphine, but I just can't stand that dog.
About the Holy Grail Holy Grail?
Is it something that my cannon can break?
Want to give it a try?
During an Event Oh? Some sort of festival? Or a ceremony?
An event, huh? Whatever you call it, let's have fun, Maître!
Birthday I hear it's your birthday, Maître!
That's great. We need to celebrate.
Hm. Now then, what gift shall I bestow upon you...just kidding.
Let's get something good to eat!
Summon Archer! Name's Napoleon!
I'm the man of possibilities...a man who heralds rainbows.
I'm the hero for humanity, here to bring victory!
