When riding into battle, taking out your enemy’s leader will likely lead you to victory.

So if you’re in the need of a boss-killing nuke, or a sustainable damage-dealer for extended fights, make sure to check out these awesome ST Riders.

Let’s get started!


5. Queen Medb

Queen Medb Fate/Grand Order sprite

It’s fair to say that Medb may not be the most powerful choice on this list.

But there’s still a case to be made for using her if you plan on sending her to the Second Archive.

Medb can buff her own damage using her skills, and deal heavy damage to male enemies.

And Medb’s claim to fame is her ability to charm male opponents with her third skill, along with her NP’s overcharge.


4. Quetzalcoatl

Quetzalcoatl Fate/Grand Order sprite

Quetz is a crit machine that you might fan over thanks to her jovial big-sister-like personality.

But in battle, Quetz’s skills revolve around buffing her critical hit damage and star absorption – before firing off an incredibly powerful NP and some fully charged face cards!

Quetz played a vital role in the Babylonia singularity. And while initially playing the role of an antagonist, she was eventually won over by Fujimaru Ritsuka’s Harem Protagonist EX skill.

Definitely pick up Quetz if you enjoy playing with crit teams.


3. Ozymandias

Ozymandias Fate/Grand Order sprite

Ozy is your hybrid damage-dealing Rider support Servant.

His first skill is a simple party-wide attack buff, while his third skill charges the party’s NP by 20%.

And his second skill is a small heal for himself with a chance to buff his attack even further.

Ozy’s NP deals relatively decent damage – but also comes with a chance to NP seal the opponent for one turn.

With all that said, he makes for a great Servant to top off your more powerful damage-dealers – offering the charge needed to fire off another NP, but he can also pick off Caster enemies thanks to his overall great damage!


2. Sakata Kintoki

Sakata Kintoki Fate/Grand Order sprite

Kintoki is a four-star welfare Servant – but don’t let his rarity fool you.

There’s a reason why this incarnation of Kintoki is considered to be one of the most powerful welfare Servants in the entire game.

You see, Kintoki’s skills allow him to buff his own damage and charge his NP – which will prove vital when you’re using him as a damage-dealing nuke.

And Kintoki’s NP is where he really shines: this deals huge damage to a single target.

Having likely acquired NP5 Kintoki Rider, not much will be left standing after he rides into town!


1. Artoria Pendragon Alter

Artoria Pendragon Alter Fate/Grand Order sprite

Rider Alter, while perhaps not offering as much initial damage as someone like Kintoki Rider (who will undoubtedly be at NP5 after clearing the event), excels both in the double Skadi system as a damage dealer – and also as pseudo quick support.

Rider Alter can buff her own attack and Quick card performance.

But not just her own – she can buff the party’s as well.

Couple this with a buff to a target’s NP generation and you have a very versatile Servant on your hands.

Rider Alter’s NP can also deal massive single target damage. And when that’s used in conjunction with a few face cards and Skadi buffs, it can be looped fairly easily.

Plus, she’s a badass maid who rides a motorcycle!
