Naw, Mitsuzuri Ayako does. Sadly she's not up there even though she deserves to be the real heroine.

Ilya is the one who deserves to be a heroine.

Saber just has way too much going for her. She's a good woman and a great knight, with a smile and beauty that can light up an entire room. Even before you discover that she's actually one of the greatest heroines of all time, you can tell she's someone great because of the way she carries herself, her impeccable sword skills, and her amazing abilities. All of that on top of being a humble and ladylike when she's not in the fray.

Some of the best moments in the story come from her too. Every time she gets out Excalibur and prepares to do the unthinkable, I get hyped because her theme is the shit and I know she's gonna win. Another one of the less obvious but still awesome ones I can think of is when Caster exhausts all of her magic tricks and finally traps Saber where she wants her to, it looks like they've finally had it until...

Spoiler:

Wow. Go Saber.

One major, major problem I have with her in the story though is that she can't seem to catch a break. She's fated to die no matter what, and gets no chance at a good ending where she survives until the Unlimited Blade Works route. She does get the afterlife ending with Shirou in Last Episode, but that's not good enough for me. I don't want to see her succumb to her grim fate for the sake of her pride and sense of duty, when she's more than well enough earned a good life with her friends.

Also think it's worth mentioning that after months and months of the seemingly undethronable Haruhi Suzumiya, this is my new desktop background:

Spoiler:


Also, can some mod kindly remove my vote for Shirou? I actually don't like him at all. What the fuck was I thinking.

Well! If you can't get enough of Saber, there's always Fate/Zero!

Oh snap, they've already started that? 13 episodes in no less... I forsee some major grinding coming on later today. How is it so far?

Excellent. Although it hasn't been particularly kind to Saber...

I didn't think it would be. From what I read in the VN, Kiritsugu had no sort of personal relationship with Saber at all, and only spoke to her when needed to use the Command Spell. But these colorful new faces have my interest piqued. I can only hope that if Saber isn't gonna be our main gal this time, we can get a lead that's just as good. Speaking of which, who's the face of Fate/Zero this time around? Kirei? Kiritsugu?

Saber is still very much the "face" given she's the most popular and profitable character in the Fate franchise, but as far as storyline focus goes, yes, Kiritsugu and Kotomine are probably the closest we have to a driving force thus far. Look out for Rider though, who's quickly become a huge fan favourite and stolen quite a bit of the spotlight to himself.

Currently Fate/Zero is on hiatus and is going to continue again in April. I recommend waiting until April before watching it unless you like waiting

She is pretty much the main gal in Fate/zero. It looks like Rider is taking over in popularity these days though. He should be the new face of "Fate".

You can't fanservice with Rider as you do with Saber, though.

You don't look around much, do you? :P Personally, Rider is also my favorite character. Underappreciated as much as she is.

Ah, but this is an FSN poll and not an FSZ one.

Edit: Ah, you've been talking about FSZ. My bad.

You know it's kind of funny how you and Iskandar basically agree.

Saber, Archer, Lancer and Assassin
But if I was supposed to choose a servant for me, I'd surely keep my fingers crossed to summon Saber
As for Assassin, the poor guy deserved to be properly summoned; Caster just kept him as a toy and it was really sad to see him like that... Though it's funny to see him in Carnival Phantasm camping in front of Caster's temple... lol...
Archer is kawaii and way to independent as a servant, but I just can't help loving him His 'Unlimited Blade Works' is quite powerful, worthy of attention
Lancer is just lovely, but he doesn't have too much space in Fate Stay Night, he's pretty much a pawn too... In the movie Unlimited Blade Works you get to know him a little better and he's quite remarkable (and loves to hit on girls as well...kawaii ...lol).
I'm going for Fate Zero as soon as I can, for I'm just in luv with all the characters!

Nobody but Gil.
Kirei, Sakura and Lancer would have been my second choice, though.

Lovely Miss Rider, of course! ...And Mister Rider. Both of the Riders. I'm not even entirely why I adore them both so much, they're both just...brilliant. In all ways.

WOAH, WHY DOES NO ONE LIKE KOTOMINE? He's such a likeable character. He can be an angelic saint and a devil at the same time
