  • Medusa is a Servant with very useful Active skills, multiple useful Passive skills, and a powerful all-target Noble Phantasm, Bellerophon.
  • With 2 Arts Command Cards and 2 Quick Command Cards, Medusa is at her best either charging up her NP or dealing critical hits.
  • Atalante is an amazing teammate for Medusa, forming a team that can frequently take advantage of C. Stars and charge up NP. Atalante also has 2 Arts Command Cards and 2 Quick Command Cards, so the duo can form Arts Chains or Quick Chains as needed. She also has Beyond Arcadia boosts the entire party’s Quick card performance, which powers up both of their Noble Phantasms and Quick Chains. Both of their Noble Phantasms generate a lot of C. Stars, as well, allowing them to make the most out of critical hits.
  • Alexander is another good Servant to pair up with Medusa. He has Charming Youth, which, combined with Medusa’s Mystic Eyes, can allow them to incapacitate more enemies together. Signs of the King also boosts the entire party’s Quick card performance, which boosts their attacks and Noble Phantasms all at once.

  • Heaven’s Feel provides the strongest boost to NP Damage, going from 40-50%.
  • There’s Divine Banquet for a 25-30% boost to NP Generation, while Kaleidoscope is a flat 80-100% NP Charge at the start of the battle.
  • Shapeless Island is Medusa’s Max Bond Craft Essence, which boosts NP Gain for the party by 15%, which allows her and her teammates to fire off their Noble Phantasms much faster.

Medusa is famous for turning men into stone for those who look into her eyes. She is the youngest among the Gorgon sisters and arguably the prettiest one among them. She carried strong powers for her father and her mother. Her parents were Phorkys and Ceto, cthonic monsters from an archaic world. Because of this, her innate powers already overpowered many who dared challenge her. While many artists envisioned her as monstrous, others viewed her to be fair and beautiful.

However, her beauty is what caused her to turn into a monstrosity. The main story goes that Athena had cursed her when Poseidon raped Medusa in her temple. Since then, her hairs turned into angry serpents. Thus, the old knowledge of her being able to turn man into stone was a power granted by Athena. While Perseus declares her punishment just, Medusa dies a horrid death via decapitation.
