Hehe.

Probably the former. Nanoha has always been a multi media franchise with sound stages booklets and manga's explaining the things the anime didn't. If you didn't read them, that was your problem.

Which sucks since we're still missing a lot of info here. If only they'd translated the booklets when they released the A's DVD's in R1, but western companies don't seem to care much for that.

Thankfully, we have Nagumo.

In Fate/Extra the servants kind of summon themselves

Would that make Nanoha a: Lancer? Caster? Archer? Berserker? or Master (of this Nero Saber).

Archer, most likely.

Perhaps, but red Saber isn't Arturia. She's a certain roman emperor.

Fate/Extra takes place in a virtual world created by a supercomputer on the moon (seriously). Mages are really super hackers that can digitise their souls. Your protagonist character is near death when one of the three playable servants that you pick before you start (Saber, Archer, or Caster) decide to appear and help you.

I think the image is supposed to have Nanoha as the master, since battles in Fate/Extra are set up with the master standing behind the servant.

Nanoha would be Archer if she was summoned since she specialises in shooting things. I doubt you could summon her as a Caster since she isn't a magic user in the truest sense.

Subaru is the only character you could summon as a Berserker. Maybe Reinforce, but her mind was never clouded by madness.

Don't see why not. Yeah, she specializes in shooting magic, but it's still magic.

Besides, Nanoha's arsenal of spells does extend beyond shooting things. Defensive spells, speed boosting spells, levitation spells, sealing spells, fall breaking spells, speed cushioning spells, scanning spells, binding spells, the list goes on with each new material.

With a few exceptions like Arturia, can't any Heroic Spirit become any kind of Servant? So she could easily qualify for both Archer and Caster.

Nove, Vivio, and Vita would all qualify as Berserkers.

She uses technology, not actual mystic forces, remember? Surely mages in the Nasuverse would scoff at the idea of calling them magic users.

Nope. They can only become the class they have appropriate skills with in life. Gilgamesh can't become a Saber, for instance, because he has no real skill with a sword. Instead he throws them, making him an Archer.

Nove, Vivio, and Vita wouldn't qualify because they were never consumed by madness. The madness enhancement can only be added to those who had gone mad in their lives like Hercules did when he murdered his family.

You might be thinking of the first Berserker. They mentioned that he could be any Servant except for Caster. That class existing pretty much guarantees that won't happen.

She uses technology to boost her innate mystical powers. Her device is really just a more modern version of, say, Rin's gems.
