To unite dreams beneath a banner of conquest. I praise your efforts. But, warriors... did you not understand? That all dreams must disappear when the dreamer wakes. Every last one of them. Therefore, it was inevitable that I would stand in your way. King of Conquerors, know the end of your eternal dream. I, myself, shall show you harsh reality.
~ Gilgamesh to Rider (Iskandar)

Mind yourselves, my elite warriors! Now is the time to deny the primordial god... and begin the age of man! This is the battle for true separation from the gods! Give your lives to me, the king! Pass on the glory that is Uruk to Generations to come, to the last man!
~ Gilgamesh Rallying the People of Uruk in Absolute Demonic Battlefront: Babylonia

I once thought much as you do now. But, we reached different conclusions. You can see anything, everything… And yet, you failed to see the whole picture. You focused only on the sadness. You focused so much on each individual evil that you blinded yourself to the larger tapestry that is humanity. You are the one who doesn’t know the value of life, King of Demon Gods. Besides, value is ever-changing. Put a price on life if you like, but it’s true nature will never change. Have you still not figured that out? The boy you dismissed as worthless is backing you into a corner. If you’re having doubts, then ask. I think that’ll be your final salvation. Hahahaha. Hahahahahahahahahaha!
~ Gilgamesh to Flauros about Humanity and Ritsuka Fujimaru

History[]

Known in legend as a demi-god, two thirds human, Gilgamesh is god-king of the kingdom of Uruk and ruled from his city in ancient Mesopotamia. As a child, Gilgamesh favored divinity over humanity, befriending Enkidu when he found the god spying on him and dueling them to a stalemate. After Enkidu's death, Gilgamesh searched for the Herb of Immortality to store it in his vault. After claiming it and stopping off at a spring, a hungry snake absorbed the energy from the herb, making the root useless for Gilgamesh's use. He then lived the remainder of his life as the King of Uruk, unable to revive his deceased friend. After his death, he made a deal with the Holy Grail to become an Archer-class Servant during the Holy Grail Wars, gaining various titles such as the King of Heroes and the Oldest King due to his status as the hero in one of the oldest legends in human history.

During the Fourth Holy Grail War, Gilgamesh is summoned as the servant of the magus Tokiomi Tohsaka whom he found to be a hindrance to his agenda. Thus, Gilgamesh finds a more suitable Master in Tokiomi's assistant Kirei Kotomine and convinces him to murder Tokiomi to form a pact. While Gilgamesh did not win the Fourth Holy Grail War officially, due to Kiritsugu Emiya having Saber (Fate/stay night) attempt to destroy the relic and Kotomine causing the fire that consumed Fuyuki, he is briefly absorbed by the grail's muddy contents which is the essence of Angra Mainyu. In the aftermath, exposed to the Avenger's All the World's Evils, Gilgamesh emerges from the mud in full physical form and bides his time for two decades before the Fifth Holy Grail War begins.

Feats[]

  • Destroyed Alexander the Great's Reality Marble with minimal effort
  • Could've destroyed Sakura from the inside if he wasn't devoured quickly

  • Easily killed Medea in the Fifth War when the other servants didn't even manage to injure her
  • Was able to withstand the curses of the Holy Grail
  • Overwhelmed Heracles by himself with his many weapons, when Archer and Saber working together just barely managed to take one of his lives
  • Inflicted notable damage on Gilles de Rais's Tentacled Abomination and likely could have killed it had he decided to place in the effort.
  • Ea's move: Enuma Elish, is capable of destroying the world when fully charged
    • His Ea matches Enkidu's who uses it to channel the power of the Counter Force to pierce the target in a single strike.
      • The Counter Force prevents Servants (Includes Geotia from Grand Order) and even their Noble Phantasms from destroying the Earth and it shares some similarities to the Mooncell (Note: The Earth in Fate or Nasuverse is a self-contained Multiverse/Dimension due to the textures on Earth, the Textures are layers of reality which wrap around the planet's surface)
  • Even when Enuma isn't fully charged, it can destroy a building at the minimum and is even capable of destroying a reality marble.
  • His eyesight is better than the Archer's of the Fifth Holy Grail War, exceeding his 400 meter vision
  • His reflexes are phenomenal, being able to react to Saber when she moved an inch towards the Grail
  • Outmaneuvered Lancelot using Knight of Owner on a fighter jet with Vinama
  • His Noble Phantasms can be launched with such accuracy and speed that they must be blocked as a result to avoid injury
  • Could fire hundreds of swords from the Gate of Babylon
  • Matched Enkidu in combat to a draw after three days of fighting, a living Noble Phantasm made by the gods able to kill Divine beings and capable of matching the Gate of Babylon and befriended them.
  • His mere clash with Enkidu caused Earth and Heaven to be destroyed and be reformed 7 times over [Despite the Earth being protected by the Counter Force] (Fate/Strange Fake)
  • Killed Gugalanna, the Bull of Heaven with help from Enkidu, which was the most powerful Divine beast at the time.
  • Qualifies as a candidate for the Grand Caster title, placing him among the likes of Merlin and King Solomon.
  • Held back Kingu in Fate/Grand Order as Caster, despite Kingu being more powerful than Enkidu and Gilgamesh not being as powerful as he was as Archer.
  • Helped kill The Primordial Mother Tiamat (Beast II) in Fate/Grand Order, one of the Seven Evils of Humanity which are a threat to the existence of humanity as a whole just by virtue of existing.
    • Destroyed her body with a full-powered blast from Ea
  • Defeated Kiara, BB [BB became one with the Mooncell] (F/EX)
  • Defeated Artoria Saber in his side-story (Extella)
    • The same Artoria, as a Top Servant, was especially summoned by the Moon Cell to defend against agressions such as Altera/Attila (and killed her as Sephar in Nameless timeline and in the past)

Weaknesses[]

  • Ridiculously overconfident and arrogant
  • Won't become serious unless his opponent proves themselves worthy
    • Will not bring out Ea unless he deems his enemy worthy of even seeing it
  • Refrains from "wasting" his treasures from the Gate if he deems the matter too trivial for his attention
  • All weapons in the Gate of Babylon except Ea can be used or copied by others, though they will inevitably return to the vault.
  • Enkidu is specifically designed to restrain Divine opponents like servants with a god's lineage or blessing, rendering it as simply a tough chain when used on Human enemies.
  • Because he possesses so many weapons, he has only mastered the use of a select few unique to himself.
  • Attacks that function similarly to Gate of Babylon and can outpace it are capable of matching it and possibly overpowering it (ie. Unlimited Blade Works, Enkidu's Transfiguration)
  • Reliant on mana supply to remain in the physical world, although Independent Action allows him an extended lifespan without a master and no longer requires this since he reassumed a fully human form.
  • Gilgamesh's treasury can be exhausted but with its sheer volume, this is a very unlikely scenario.
  • Died of overwork once
