Notable Servants

ServantExplanation
Mash Kyrielight
Mash
Mashu's defense buffing capability is among the strongest in the game, making her one of the best choices for defense-stacking strategies. Her Taunt and Invincibility also aids the team's survivability, and she has good overall NP gain due to her third skill. Perhaps most importantly, however, is that she has zero cost.
Heracles
Heracles
High damage with very good survivability from his skills, Heracles truly shines when he has his bond CE equipped. It allows him to survive for several turns on his own - coupled with his high damage, Heracles can single-handedly clear many of the harder stages.
Altria Pendragon (Santa Alter)
Altria (Santa Alter)
At NP5 and with the high base percentage of Excalibur Morgan, her NP is one of the most formidable among AoE Servants. Additionally, she has added utilities via her healing skill, and thanks to the high Rider class star weight, she can make effective use of critical stars.
Oda Nobunaga
Oda Nobunaga
Nobunaga boasts a high-percentage critical buff, as well as two supereffective modifiers (against Riders and Divines, respectively). These make her a formidable damage dealer, even more so thanks to her AoE NP gain buff, which aids the whole party.
Carmilla
Carmilla
Carmilla is a versatile Servant, thanks to her diverse skillset, as well as the heal and her anti-female supereffectives built-in to her Noble Phantasm. With her above-average ATK, she is a valuable Assassin to have.
Nursery Rhyme
Nursery Rhyme
Solid in both offense and defense, Nursery Rhyme combines NP spamming with formidable defense buffs as well as debuff removal. Of note is her NP's NP drain chance, which can greatly hinder opponents.
Anne Bonny & Mary Read
Anne & Mary
Although most notable for their unusually high NP damage, Anne Mary's high-percentage critical buff also sets them apart from other Servants.
Altria Pendragon (Alter)
Altria (Alter)
Saber Alter's most defining feature is the above-average modifier of Excalibur Morgan, which allows her to compete in NP damage even against her 5-star original version.
Elisabeth Bathory (Halloween)
Elisabeth (Halloween)
Thanks to her NP5 status, Caster Elizabeth has an above-average NP damage among 4-star Servants, even with her class' 0.9 modifier.
Medea (Lily)
Medea (Lily)
Numbers-wise, Medea Lily is arguably the best burst healer currently in the game; coupled with her poison and debuff removals, she is a highly versatile Servant for many quests.
Nero Claudius
Nero Claudius
Nero's Thrice Setting Sun is an extremely formidable skill on par with Heracles' bond CE. Due to this, she is able to solo quite a lot of stages. Aside from this, she also has good survivability thanks to Migraine and Imperial Privilege.
ServantExplanation
BB
BB
BB is an Arts-oriented damage dealer with considerable support capabilities - NP charge, debuff removal, healing, and even stun, all of which are highly important. Although her ATK is somewhat low, her being a free Servant means that she can rather easily reach NP5, which largely fixes this.
Lancelot (Saber)
Lancelot (Saber)
Lancelot is a critical-based Servant, able to generate critical stars and use them effectively. Criticals, along with the Arts buff built-in to his NP, mean that he is able to gain NP quickly. These factors establish Lancelot as one of the best damage dealers among 4-star Servants.
Sakata Kintoki (Rider)
Sakata Kintoki (Rider)
Kintoki's NP has a built-in Quick buff, the magnitude of which scales extraordinarily with Overcharge. Coupled with his great NP gain and high star absorb, his NP spamming ability is one of the most potent in the game.
Yagyuu Munenori
Yagyuu Munenori
The jewel among Munenori's kit is his huge attack debuffs, which makes him one of the best counters for buff-removing enemies. Coupled with his good NP gain, these make him one of the best damage dealers to have around.

Yorimitsu
Yorimitsu is highly notable for her multiple offensive buffs - complete with critical absorption - which makes her one of the best damage dealers among 4-star Servants. As she lacks any sort of survival measure, Yorimitsu will have to rely on her allies in that regard.
Altria Pendragon (Alter)
Altria (Alter, Lancer)
Altria Alter's attacks, especially her criticals, are among the hardest-hitting in the game thanks to her multiple buffing skills. However, most of her buffs only last for one turn, and she may experience problems with gaining NP.
Chloe Von Einzbern
Chloe Von Einzbern
Chloe's strength lies in her NP, which is both powerful and spammable. Being Arts-oriented means that she has access to balanced team compositions, as well as multiple buffs.
Gilgamesh (Caster)
Gilgamesh (Caster)
A Servant with both offensive and supportive capabilities, Gilgamesh provides defense up, attack increase, as well as critical star gain and Arts performance buffs for the whole team. The last two in particular are notable, as they allow the whole team to generate large amounts of stars even on Arts cards.
Ryougi Shiki (Assassin)
Ryougi Shiki (Assassin)
Shiki's most formidable asset is her powerful NP, which is amplified by her NP5 status. This, above all others, allows her to stand out compared to other 4-star Assassins.
Rama
Rama
Rama's main defining trait is his high-percentage critical buff, which comes with a short cooldown. His NP's supereffective grants him match up flexibility as well. However, it is important to note that critical buffs don't scale as well compared to other buff types, especially with notable supports such as Merlin and Zhuge Liang.
Ibaraki Douji
Ibaraki Douji
Ibaraki's defense buffs enable her to survive enemy NPs with defense-stacking strategies. Coupled with her debuff removal and high-damage NP, this makes her a flexible Servant, especially with a suitable supporting party.
Caster of Midrash (Queen of Sheba)
Caster of Midrash
Queen of Sheba has one of the highest natural NP gain rate, which, coupled with her Arts buffs, means that her NP is highly spammable. Also important to note is the potential of her high-percentage critical buff, although normally, it is hindered by her low critical absorption.

Altria (Alter, Rider)
At NP5 and with the high base percentage of Excalibur Morgan, her NP is one of the most formidable among AoE Servants. Additionally, she has added utilities via her healing skill, and thanks to the high Rider class star weight, she can make effective use of critical stars.
EMIYA
EMIYA
Boasting a huge critical damage buff coupled with Archers' high star weight, EMIYA's critical damage rivals that of even 5-star Servants. His triple Arts deck also allows him to unleash his NP more often.
Mecha Eli-Chan
Mecha Eli-Chan
Being an Alter-Ego, Mecha Eli-chan deals increased damage to all Horsemen classes, and holds a rare advantage against the Foreigner class. With her high-percentage buffs and NP5 status, she is an extremely valuable damage dealer to have.
Vlad III (Extra)
Vlad III (Extra)
Possessing good utility and a single-target NP with an effectiveness on Evil enemies, Vlad III is a solid damage dealer, especially when he is adequately supported.
Lancelot
Lancelot
As a Berserker capable of performing critical hits reliably, Lancelot (Berserker) is a highly valuable asset for certain types of stages. His poor survivability and low NP gain is considered to be his main weakness.
Siegfried
Siegfried
After several interludes, Siegfried's damage against opponents with Dragon trait is unmatched - something made important by the fact that many Servants (most notably the Pendragons) possess this trait. Coupled with his high bulk and good NP gain, he is now, by all means, a solid Servant.
