Ah, sorry, I was confused about the spoiler rules in different threads. It seems like this one allows game spoilers as long as they are spoiler-tagged.

So, in answer to the question:

Yeah, Grail over time became vessel that hold all the worlds evil. Because Humans are like that, they create something with wonderful in design only to f**k it up later because they are not perfect beings.

The Cherry_Lover answer makes me wonder?

What would happened if Jesus was heroic spirit and he touched the Grail Mud?
Would he became corrupted or would the Grail Mud burn out instead? Because he is like, son of God?

And that's why gods cannot become Servants.

He is not God, he is son of God. There is a difference.
Not as powerful as dad but powerful nonetheless.
So, would he became corrupted or not if was to touch the Grail mud?

Actually, no, it's not "over time".

Well, presumably he'd be able to resist it at very least, as Gil could.

Actually, according to Christian mythology, Jesus is both the son of God and, also, God himself. So, on that basis, he probably could not be summoned.

It's not clear. Being the son of a god certainly doesn't make you immune to corruption, but Jesus might be special in that regard, due to his inherent anti-corrupting nature.

I didn't say God, I said gods. Unless you intend to argue that the likes of Zeus do not exist in the TypeMoon universe, despite Heracles existing and Iskander having some level of divinity.

A god in TypeMoon merely means they have 100% divinity. Jesus would be in this category.

Well, it's not quite that simple. Rider (Medusa), for example, is said to have once been a goddess, and Heracles was deified by Zeus when he died.

Medusa lost her divinity, though. Heracles is a weird case, since like you said he does become a god, but most of his legend is from pre-godhood, and becoming a god isn't really that big a part of it.

My point is that Heracles does not have 100% divinity, and yet became a god. Being a god just means you are a god, the divinity stat is just a measure of how close to being a god you are.

But if divinity is how close to being a god you are, then certainly Heracles as a god would have 100% divinity. Otherwise, he's not really a god.

It just means he was 67% a god throughout his legend (and how he was summoned), then after ascending became 100% a god.

Or was it Gilgamesh who was 67%... I know it was A rank, but forget his exact percentage.

Gil is A+, because he's 67% divine, yes.

My point is, though, that divinity is just a measure of how much "god" you are. So, whilst I guess you are right that having 100% divinity would by definition make you a true god, divinity is defined as "how god-like you are", so saying that being a god merely means you have "100% divinity" is basically saying "being a god means you are a god". It's an utterly meaningless statement.

In Type-MOON, the original Angra Mainyu wasn't actually a god, but a young man sacrificed by his village to ease the minds of his people. This young man was apparently the basis of the legend of Angra Mainyu.

Jesus could be another case like that, a man purportedly thought of as a god, while in actually just being a man. If that is the case, his summoning would be possible, and his abilities would likely stem from what the religion said he could do.

Herakles might also be a similar case, having started out as a man himself.

He could be. However, since that is pretty much exactly how Islam describes him, I'd expect that to annoy quite a few people....

Was reading up on Caliburn and read it was destroyed because Saber fought dishonorably. Any more details on that and how she fought dishonorably?

So if summoning and allowing the soul of Angra Maiya (represents all the evil in the world) to reach the Grail corrupts it, then summoning and allowing the soul of something that represents all the good in the world like Jesus for example to reach the already corrupt Grail would negate the corruption and restore the Grail to as it should be like in the 1st and 2nd HGW or would it not work because of another reason?

The only information there is a hint from the manga, where I believe it showed her basically using citizens as human shields against an enemy or letting an enemy raze a town to trap them or something. It's been a long time since I saw it so I might be mistaken on the exact circumstance, but it showed it starting to rebel against her (cut her hand or something) due to an action she took.

You might be able to figure out something by looking at the original Arthurian legend and figuring out when Caliburn broke, but in some versions of the legend, Caliburn and Excalibur are the same sword, given by the Lady of the Lake, so you might have some trouble finding the actual event.

It is much more complicated than that. Angra Mainyu is not just a soul, but closer to a concept. The soul of the boy is pretty benign, but the curse that soul bears wishes to eradicate humanity. The Grail is a colourless wish-granting machine, and it just accepted the wish for "All the World's Evil" and made it its overarching directive.

Right now, the Grail is essentially Angra Mainyu, more specifically the gestation pod of Angra Mainyu. It is trying to incarnate the concept of "All the World's Evil".

If you try to summon Jesus (which is impossible, since Jesus is part of the Trinity of God), you will just end up with something evil.

Reread the responses before that--the idea of Jesus being summoned is under the theory that he was a mortal man, just like Angra Mainyu was. Herakles may be in that same boat, where the divinity was more from the legend than the man himself. All unconfirmed, but Rev's questioning is down that line of theory.

Very dumb question here from someone who has never watched a single clip of Fate series.
Will the current anime that is airing right now end in a happy ending?
