This servant is currently unavailable on the EN ver.
This servant is available only in Onigashima Event Pickup Summon.


If you are looking for a servant that is meant to dish out tons of damage, you have come to the right place as Minamoto No Yorimitsu is The servant for you. Her offensive game is just as disgustingly huge as her assets, However she offers just as much on the defensive end as her waist size.

There isn’t much to discuss with regards to her base stats as they are fairly average amongst all the 5* Berserkers, although she does lean towards the tankier side of the spectrum. Her other stats are rather intriguing as compared to her HP and Attack as looking at the raw numbers alone, Her NP generation ranks the lowest NP generation. However, when you put into account her high hit counts, her NP generation is well above average. Her Crit star generation may look bad seeing that she only holds one Quick card but she makes up for this with her passive skill “Riding A+”, in a typical brave chain with the quick card she can get about 18 crit stars (give or take a few), this is fairly good considering she is a Berserker.

Her active skills are the catalyst for those absurd numbers you get when you are using her, her first skill increases her Critical star absorption by 30 times at level 1!! Congratulation for removing the RNG factor of the critical system in the game. Her second skill grants her a decent buster buff, however the real kicker is that this skill offers her only defensive tool, which comes in a form of self evasion. Last but definitely not least, we have her last skill which gives her a damage boost against enemies with certain traits, however these traits are very common unlike most damage boosting skill thus you will be seeing the effects of these more often than not.


  • Great at dealing damage
  • Solid Crit star generation
  • Reliable Critter


  • Only one defensive tool
  • NP has a low damage multiplier
  • Berserker class takes 1.5x damage often

Strategies & Tips

Minamoto No Yorimitsu is one of the best damage dealing servants in the game, we want to use her for what she is best at but we are going to take it up a notch by ensuring she crits reliably. For that reason, we will want to pair her with servants that can generate those Crit star for her.

However this is not to say she should not be paired with other teams, she can also shine when paired with supports that can overcome her defensive shortcomings and boost her damage output besides feeding her stars.

Noble Phantasm

Minamoto No Yorimitsu NP has a very low damage multiplier but because it is AOE and has a high hit counts, it can generate about 28 stars (give and take a few) when used against 3 enemies. The amount of the stars generated is further increased when you add the effects of the NP as well and with the right chain you can easily get the magical number of 50 stars (this ensure all of servants of the field will have a 100% chance of critting next turn).

Best Servants to Work with

Her kit is basically screaming for Merlin, his third skill is made for Minamoto to deal more damage. Lets not forget he can sustain her with his second skill and NP as well, a perfect support to be paired with her.
Hans Christian Andersen
Hans Christian Andersen
He is great support for her as well, helping her on both the offensive and defensive ends of things, A bonus point for him since he is attainable from the FP (Friend Point) gacha.
Jack the Ripper
Jack the Ripper
She can never be left out of any discussion when we are talking about a Crit team. She can not only generate Crit stars like no tomorrow but a plus point for her as she has a healing skill that can sustain Minamoto as well.

Best CEs

Buster Up

Victor From The Moon:
Increases performance of unit's Buster cards by 10%
Increases unit's critical attack damage by 20%
Not only will she benefit from the Buster card but due to her star absorb, she can deal even more damage with her crits, hence this CE is one that should be equipped with her.

Verdant Sound of Destruction:
Increases performance of unit's Buster cards by 15%.
Not all of us are able to pull 5* CE and for those that fall under that category, this CE is the one for you. Minamoto No yorimitsu can benefit directly from this due to the 3 Buster cards (NP included) in her deck, definitely a more realistic option.

Initial NP Charge

Holy Night Supper:
30% NP Charged from Start.
Increase Critical Damage by 10%.
Increases NP Damage by 10%.
Helping with her low NP low damage, a buff to her crit while granting her a 30% charge to her gauge is just screaming Minamoto name all over it.

Upgrade Priority

  • Eternal Arms Mastership A+
    Increases own critical star absorption for 3 turns.
    As mentioned before this skill also guarantees that all the stars generated will go to her, thus this will be especially useful when she is paired with a good Crit star generator.

  • Mana Burst (Lightning) A
    Increases own Buster card performance for 1 turn.
    Grants self evasion for 1 turn.
    This skill holds her one and only defensive tool, it is strongly recommended to max this skill first if your team doesn’t have much to help her on defense. The Buster performance buff is also great to have when she has her NP up as this helps compensate for the low NP damage multiplier.

  • Mystery Killer A
    Increase damage against "Magical" trait for 3 turns.
    Further Increase damage against Servants with "Earth or Sky" Traits (Pseudo-Servant and Demi-Servant excluded) for 3 turns.
    Damage boosting skills offers great buffs as compared to attack and card performance buffs. However since they need a more specific scenario to be put into good use, I would strongly hold off from maxing this first even though a huge pool of enemies fall under the traits mentioned.

    2>1>3: I would go with this upgrade order as not only does her only defense lies in the second skill. We must also remember no matter the team she is in, she can directly benefit from the Buster performance buff as well, plus her first skill at level 1 is still ridiculously good so no point wasting your items on it first.

Made out of magic. Mostly monsters like skeletons, ghosts, oni, boar, etc. Oni Servants also count as magical such as Shuten, Ibaraki and Tomoe.
