So, Who is Archer?


My 9 year brother saw all the anime... 4 times in 2 days, so he's addicted to the anime, i didnt understand who is Archer, he come to a theory.
They say that a servant can come from the past, present or future.
Archer is the only one that can not remember his past, if he comes from the future, his memories weren't created yet so, he cant remember that. his Noble Spirit is infinite blades, just like the shirou's power.
what do you think?

reply

Yes Archer is Shiro. They don't make it clear in the anime but provide hints. In the game it's a story arc.

reply

Is it a PC game?
I really want to know more, what leaded shirou to sacrifice, maybe to be with saber once again

If you can get your hands on the visual novel which by the way, is much better than the anime, you can see who Archer really is and about his past and how he ended up like this. It's only available after you beat the first route, though. First route is called "Fate", which deals with Saber and is mainly what the anime followed. The second is "Unlimited Blade Works", which focuses on Rin and Archer. There is also a third route called "Heaven's Feel", which focuses on Sakura.

It's true, Servants can only come from the past, out of the Throne of Heroes. Counter-Guardians can come from anywhere in time, and are supposed to appear when the existence of humanity is threatened, but apparently can be summoned as Servants in the Grail ritual, too.

This could be why Archer didn't know the oath that Rin was trying to swear him to, but it was the first thing out of Saber's mouth when she appeared.

According to the Realta Nua bonus ending, he's apparently becomes Saber's lover.

Which I thought was a contrived 'throw the fans a hanky' tacked on, but I guess it's canon now, so what can you do?

reply

Archer doesn't become Sabers lover. That relta nua ending is just for a happy saber ending for fans(since her end was pretty sad). (nothing more)
