Playable characters in the game include Archer, Rin Tōsaka, Shirō Emiya, Sakura Matō, Saber, and Taiga Fujimura.
All characters from the Fate/stay night series, as well as the main characters of Fate/hollow ataraxia, Bazett Fraga McRemitz and Caren Ortensia, make an appearance as playable characters.
A bonus character was also seen as a new addition to the roster of characters. That character was revealed as Saber dressed in a lion costume (to represent her favorite animal) wielding a piece of meat. In the trailers all she says is "Gao Gao Gao!" which is a sound that a lion would make.
