Assassin (Crucis Fatal Fake)

Health 9000
Magic Circuits 1/2


[edit] Introduction

Assassin is the servant of Caster and the grandservant of Soichiro. Upon first impression by Saber he appeared to have no abilities whatsoever despite wielding a long sword with perfect form never seen today. She quickly judged the man to have the trait to hide his abilities. A trait that belongs only to the Assassin class. Assassin's true identity is that of the legendary rival of the legendary Musashi Miyamoto, Kojiro Sasaki. Kojiro had no magical abilities in his lifetime and only worked to improve his sword work. He practiced a technique to slash from three impossible directions simultanously, this trait was impossible but his perseverance triumphed over reality and he had created a technique that defies all logical reasoning, a technique he names Tsubame Gaeshi. His purpose in the Holy Grail War is to guard the gates of Ryudou temple to keep all servants and masters from reaching Caster. Though of the Assassin class his sword work is on a level beyond even Saber's.

Does 4500 damage. Consumes 1 magic circuit.

[edit] Strategies

[edit] Overview

Assassin has pathetic health for a servant but makes up for it with the highest priority in the game as well as some very high damaging moves, a large array of counter attacks, and a strong close range game.

[edit] Zoning

Have fun doing this. Assassin has a strong close range game but has a long sword reach. So you have to try to stay at the tip of your range. Most of your attacks can connect easily enough with the exception of your last resorts. For connecting your last resorts dash forward while attacking and use them. Both of Assassin's last resorts have 1 frame for startup and his first last resort only has 1 frame for launching the attack, to make things better they are both unblockable! Just keep poking your enemy at the tip of your range, punish rushes with either 624A or 236B. Against a projectile user use your parry attacks to zone them. Just remember one poke and you can link several attacks to it, try out different combination for each situation.
