Fate/Samurai Remnant all playable characters: every character you can control
Although you'll mostly be controlling Miyamoto Iori and Saber most of the time in Fate/Samurai Remnant, there’ll be times when the game allows you to play as Servants from other Masters briefly. They can usually be controlled in their Digression side quest chain.
Iori is the only Master you can play in combat. While you can run around as some of the other Masters in their Digressions, control will switch over to their Servants when combat is initiated. The AI will control the Master in combat, so you can still see them in action from the sidelines.
Rogue Servants can be played temporarily until they officially join Iori’s cause, in which they’ll function as a secondary Servant and be utilized like Saber in combat; they can fire off Affinity Skills and briefly be taken control of once their Affinity Gauge is full. You usually have to finish all of their Digressions first before Iori can call upon them reliably, though there are some exceptions.
Of course if you want to surprise yourself as you play through Fate/Samurai Remnant on who you’ll be able to play as, you might not want to scroll down any further. We will not be detailing any True Names or Noble Phantasms in this list to keep the Servants’ identities a secret.
Note that not all Rogue Servants will always be by your side and playable when they join Iori’s cause due to plot events.
If you’re curious as to who are all the playable characters in Fate/Samurai, they are the following
Adopted son and disciple of the great swordsman Miyamoto Musashi. He is a ronin living in Asakusa, Edo, who studied the Niten Ichiryu style of swordsmanship, but Musashi passed away before he could teach him the secrets of the art. Still seeking to master the Way of the Sword, he spends his days training while making ends meet.
He possesses five different stances that all have unique movesets, skills, and combat specialties.
A Servant of the Saber class who is dressed in an old-fashioned style and wields a wavy sword. Saber suddenly appeared in front of Iori and saved him from a crisis. Claiming that Iori is weak, this proud Heroic Spirit intends to fight the Waxing Moon Ritual alone. Saber seems to be interested in the peaceful streets of Edo.
They wield a sword that can fire off water-based abilities.
A Servant of the Archer class who is loyal, courageous, and fierce. He shows respect to his Master Zheng Chenggong and freely maneuvers his bow and arrow to help him in his battles.
Archer often douses his arrows in fire before shooting them at his foes.
A Servant of the Lancer class. She wields two spears and black flames, making dark flowers bloom on the battlefield. There seems to be a reason for her constant gloomy appearance…
Her spears can spread dark purple pillars of fire across the battlefield. You don't really play her much in your first playthrough, but in New Game+...
A Servant of the Assassin class. He is a phantom in gray with long arms and legs that flex like whips. He is said to be able to summon and manipulate many serpents as his subordinates.
He has maneuvers to get up close to enemies quickly and stretches his arms to deal damage from a distance. You might be wondering why he's on this list if you didn't control him in your initial run. Perhaps, on a 2nd playthrough...
A Servant of the Berserker class. She is an unrivaled swordswoman and the founder of the Niten Ichiryu style of swordsmanship. Though she shares the same identity as Miyamoto Iori's teacher, her appearance seems to be slightly, or perhaps quite, different from that of the person Iori knew.
Though she shares many of the abilities as Iori, the way she employs them into her moveset are quite different.
A Rogue Servant of the Saber class. He is an armored warrior who rides a gray horse and wields a large sword. He is in pursuit of an enemy called the Evil Ogre, whom he seeks to destroy.
Rogue Saber is fairly mobile with some of his heavy attack finishers and can fire off energy explosions.
A Rogue Servant of the Archer class. He is a fighter clad in a white robe who wields a bow covered with blue flames. He is pure, always respectful, and behaves in a fair and honest manner.
Agile and graceful, Rogue Archer can fire off arrows in a speedy, efficient fashion.
A Rogue Servant of the Lancer class. He handles a crimson spear, which is longer than he is, as if it were a part of himself. He has a belligerent personality and seeks out challenging battles.
His wide sweeping attacks with his spear can clear crowds in a flash.
A Rogue Servant of the Caster class. She is a mischievous witch with wings like a hawk. With her magical talents, she plays tricks on those who oppose her.
Her spells can control the battlefield reliably; she can even summon pigs to aid in her assault.
A Rogue Servant of the Assassin class. He is a sharp-eyed old man wearing an unfamiliar garb. He is a kung-fu fighter who fights only with his fists, but his fighting style has not been found in any past records.
A speedy melee fighter that trusts only in his fists to devastate his enemies.
A Rogue Servant of the Berserker class. He is a long-haired fighter who boasts a muscular body. Being summoned as a Berserker, he has lost all sense of rationality. For whatever reason, he accompanies Takao Dayu.
An overwhelming force to be reckoned with once he steps into the battle arena. There are many nasty combo strings and abilities that Rogue Berserker can tap into with his fists and legs.
A Rogue Servant of the Rider class. She captivates men with her dainty appearance and somewhat frivolous speech and behavior. Instead of riding on something, riding on someone seems to be her preferred form of transportation.
Rogue Rider cannot be controlled in combat, but she can support Iori in combat with an Affinity Skill that buffs his stats temporarily.
