Table of Contents

Overview

“Commencing medication.”

Free support Servants can be hit-or-miss in FGO, but Santa Night is an example of a welfare support done right. Bringing a mixture of useful general buffs and rare utility, Night is a helpful Servant for new and old Masters alike. She can also output good damage herself in a pinch. With plenty of flexibility and the ability to function well in whatever role she fills, Night is a great addition to the game’s roster.

Nightingale’s most direct strength is her ability to increase party damage. Nurse of Steel (Holy Night), Bell Rung by an Angel on the Holy Night, and Assault Medicine Full Burst Party all let Night increase an ally’s damage for 3 turns, making her a respectable support Servant even when her other utility isn’t needed. In terms of utility, though, Nurse of Steel also brings Buff Removal Resistance, a rare form of utility useful for certain fights. Night also brings various forms of buff and debuff removal, along with some healing on Assault Medicine. Furthermore, Night is herself an AoE Archer with good buffs, so she can function as a damage-dealer if needed.

In exchange for these various strengths, Night misses out on other benefits typical of higher-rarity supports. She has limited survival tools, especially when functioning as a support, which means she may struggle to survive until her skills cool down for a second use. Relatedly, her skill cooldowns are a bit long relative to their effects, further reinforcing her one-and-done nature. Night also provides low crit damage buffs, and her high Archer star weight makes her a weak support choice for critical-focused Servants.

Nightingale is useful for Masters with less complete Servant rosters due to her general-purpose damage-buffs, and she’s useful for Masters with more complete rosters due to her unique challenge quest utility. She’s also good at damaging Sabers as a bonus. Welfare Servants are rarely so universally useful, which makes Night a welcome arrival.

Strengths

Strong Supportive Damage Buffs

Nightingale can increase an ally’s NP damage and attack for three turns, helping her team to clear content faster. Her damage buffs are among the best of any non-SSR Servants, meaning Night is a great universal pick for any Master without a deep bench of top-tier supports.

Useful Challenge Quest Utility

Between her buff removal, debuff removal, and buff removal resistance effects, Night has tools for dealing with many gimmicks in difficult fights. Buff removal resistance is particularly valuable, as it is relatively rare, and buff removal can shut down otherwise-strong teams.

Good Damage Output

If used as a damage-dealer, Night can output good damage to the enemy team. This is especially true of Saber enemies, where Night’s useful skills and good NP gain make her one of the better offensive AoE options.

Weaknesses

Limited Survival Tools

Night’s survival tools are limited to a targetable guts effect and some healing. Especially when she uses her guts on an ally (as she will in supportive contexts), Night tends to be relatively fragile and is likely to die before she has the chance to use her skills a second time.

Long Skill Cooldowns

Nurse of Steel is on a 7-turn cooldown at max level, and Bell Rung by an Angel on the Holy Night is on a 6-turn cooldown despite being functionally a Charisma-type skill. Especially with Night’s offensive focus in mind, this makes it difficult for Night to use her buffs a second time, and it means she has long stretches where she provides no damage buffs to herself or her allies.

Weak Critical Support

Night’s only critical buff caps out at 30%, and she has no way beyond active star generation to feed stars to her allies. Furthermore, she has high star weight due to her class. This means Night is not a particularly good support for critical-focused Servants.

Nurse of Steel (Holy Night) is Night’s largest damage buff and also has her most valuable piece of utility. The Buff Removal Resistance buff, in particular, needs to be maxed out in order to be completely reliable, so this skill should be leveled first. Bell Rung by an Angel on the Holy Night is Night’s other damage-boosting skill, so it should be leveled second. Assault Medicine only increases its healing as it gains levels, so it can be saved for last. Night needs Nurse of Steel maxed in order to ensure her utility works as intended, but the other two skills only gain marginal benefits from levels and can safely be left at lower levels if resources are at a premium.

  • Assault Medicine brings a mix of low-grade utility effects. Buff removal on enemies can help to get around defensive buffs, but only if those defensive buffs are the most recent buffs applied. Similarly, removing one debuff from all allies can be useful, but only if the problematic debuff is the most recent one. The heal on this skill is also occasionally useful for keeping the team alive.
  • Nurse of Steel (Holy Night) is Night’s best skill. Three turns of NP damage up is always nice for pushing damage, and the skill comes with a guts effect for added protection. Arguably more importantly, at max level this skill prevents most buff removal effects from working, stabilizing the team in the face of certain challenge quest or story fight gimmicks.
  • Bell Rung by an Angel on the Holy Night is fairly simple, increasing the party’s attack and critical attack damage for 3 turns. This is another generic damage increase that helps Night be useful in all sorts of teams.

Craft Essence Recommendation

Target Focus Craft Essences are a good pick for Nightingale, as they let her use her buffs and then get out of the way in favor of a more sustainable support Servant. Starting NP Gauge Craft Essences are also useful for letting Night deal damage quickly and apply the defense down effect on her NP. Critical Star Generation Craft Essences, by contrast, can help offset Night’s weak critical attack support functionality when using her with a critical-oriented Servant. Quick Performance Up and NP Damage Up Craft Essences also work well when using Night as an offensive Servant.

  • GUDAGUDA Poster Girl / Outrage: These CEs let Night draw enemy attacks when she arrives on the field. With Poster Girl especially, these will likely result in Night dying quickly, allowing a new support to take the field. This largely negates Night’s cooldown- and sustain-oriented weaknesses.
  • Kaleidoscope / The Imaginary Element / Traces of Christmases Past: These CEs provide starting NP gauge in order to make it easier for Night to use her NP. Traces of Christmases Past is the free CE in Night’s debut event, and it works especially well, giving her starting NP gauge as well as Quick and NP gain boosts.
  • A Fragment of 2030 / His Rightful Place / Wolves of Mibu / Golden Captures the Carp / Crowning Beauty, Greater Glory: These CEs provide stars either on an ongoing basis, or in a burst when Night arrives on the field. Easy access to critical stars is useful for ensuring the team can execute critical attacks.
  • The Black Grail / Heaven’s Feel / Holy Night Supper / Imaginary Around: These CEs boost Nightingale’s damage output. NP-damage-focused CEs are most effective for increasing damage, but Quick-focused CEs can also help increase Night’s effective NP gain and star generation.

Profile

Character Info

The angel of Crimea, whose principles were service and dedication. Iron will, saving people, "Little Foreign Office", and so on. Pretty much the same as in her Berserker manifestation.
The strange and massive firearm she carries looks alternately like an umbrella or a gun, and she has become an Archer. If that all-too-familiar red outfit is anything to go by...could she possibly be a Santa?

It looks that way...

Profile 1

Height/Weight: 165cm, 52kg
Origin: History
Region: Europe
Alignment: Lawful-Good
Gender: Female
Nightingale sees all Servants as soldiers. The Servants often get injured, which means they are all subject to get treatment.

Profile 2

Independent Action: A+
A skill that enables her to be autonomous for a while even without Master supplying magical energy. She is able to fight against injury and illness on her own if duty calls.

Madness Enhancement: EX
Ranks up all her parameters, but strips away much of her sanity. It's unclear whether this happened because the qualities of her original Berserker Spirit Origin were retained, or if it was that the hero Nightingale's characteristics remained. She may be more mild-mannered in her speech than she was as a Berserker, but her conversational style hasn't really changed much.

Profile 3

Assault Medicine: C+
The gun-like syringe Archer Nightingale carries around is used like a projectile weapon, firing ampoules containing various medicine at a rate of twenty ampoules per second. Those targeted by her treatments recover instantly. Those targeted for disinfection or sterilization sustain reduced damage. This particular Noble Phantasm is continuously active, but in this game it counts as a skill.

Bell Rung by an Angel on the Holy Night: EX
Archer Nightingale may not evince any enthusiasm for Christmas, but her very being is closely tied to the Holy Night. Her crimson outfit and the golden bell fastened on a travelers bag is proof of this connection. Then again, Nightingale has no recollection of why she wears or carries such things, claiming that she did not realize she had them.

Profile 4

Archer Nightingale believes that all the world's sweets should turn into medicine (like cold medicine that's sweet). However, she does not believe wishes should be made upon the Holy Grail, and so strives to carry this out herself.

If someone asks, "Don't you mean you want all the world's medicine to turn into sweets?" her reply would surely be, "Why! Should! Medicine! Turn! Into! Sweets!?"

She really is a stickler on this topic.

"The concept of sweets changing into medicine contains some element of fantasy. But medicine should remain medicine."

Profile 5

[Assault Medicine]
Rank: C+
NP Type: Anti-Personnel
Range: 0 - 30
Maximum Target: 10

Angel's Dew, Devil's Tears.
Nightingale's desire to eradicate all source of disease from the world and to treat all the sick and injured, sublimed into a weaponized Noble Phantasm that remains continuously active. The fact that it resembles a gun is likely due to her experience in the military. In this game, it is expressed as a skill.

[Assault Medicine Full Burst Party]
Rank: B
NP Type: Anti-Army
Range: 0 - 60
Maximum Target: 50

The Angel Cries, The Devil Disappears within the Shadows.
A full-auto assault utilizing her syringe-like gun, also known as the Noble Phantasm "Assault Medicine." Any source of disease is immediately eliminated, and anyone who requires treatment will be immediately healed.

Profile 6

She has a bit of an off-the-rails perception of most things, and she remains entirely focused on no-nonsense medical treatment...which means her behavior is no different than the normal Heroic Spirit Nightingale's. However, upon closer observation, you may realize that she speaks rather more modestly than usual. While it is not altogether frequent, she does sometimes voice more romantic notions. This is because Archer Nightingale contains fragments of her younger mind, before she spent time in the medical field. In consequence, she evinces more of her well-bred background than she does in her Berserker manifestation.

It was Nursery Rhyme's meddling that had caused Nightingale's Spirit Origin to change. After a series of incidents, Archer Nightingale has come to accept her youthful self. Her acceptance should therefore allow her to work well as the new Santa Servant. In particular, she will continue to fight for to improve sanitary and nursing conditions and to combat myriad illnesses...all while praying during the Holy Night.

...So essentially she's still the same person?
Maybe she is, and maybe she isn't.

Ascension 2 My Assault Medicine has improved even more.
Hehe...it's a lighter trigger pull now. That is a good thing.

Ah yes, I see now.The liquid medication in my ampoule bandolier has improved in quality. Wonderful...
Ascension 4 I will keep on going forever.

Bond Level 1 Yes. I am Florence Nightingale. How do you do?
Do you have business with me?
What's that?
...I'm acting different than usual? Heh. Stop with the jokes.
Bond Level 2 Let's have some tea.
I've received some good quality leaves from Mr. Jekyll...

Bond Level 3 Ah, I was just writing a letter.
I was just about to send it to my...my...
Nothing... To whom do you think I am sending this letter?
Hehe...
Bond Level 4 I'm slowly beginning to understand.
I do feel that my current self is slightly different from the normal me.
The battlefield where I'm supposed to be...the place where sanitation and medical treatment are executed...feels a bit distant to me right now.
And I probably feel this way because it's not nostalgic to me.
But rather...I feel I'm compelled to look ahead and into the future...
Bond Level 5 This me as I am now retains that same feeling of excitement as when I was preparing to head out to Crimea...
That same feeling as when I was ready to learn so much...
I stand here today carrying those strong sentiments.
And that's why the words and mannerisms I used during my time as a daughter of a gentry find occasional expression.
Heh. Things have certainly turned out to be strange...
Conversation 1 Let's head out.
The people are waiting for me.
I will pack a bag full of medicine, and we will head anywhere as we walk through hell.
Oh come on, do not stop walking.
Conversation 2 Do not forget to wash your hands and gargle when you come back from outside.
Understood?
Conversation 3 Always keep your clothes clean.
Spiritron Dresses? What are you talking about? You must not wear the same outfit twice.
I will do your laundry, so please take those off. Now raise your arms.
There is no point resisting.
Conversation 4 There are many soldiers here.
Which means I am needed.
I'm itching to get to work!
Conversation 5 (Gilles (Caster), Phantom of the Opera, Caligula, Salome, Mori Nagayoshi, Edmond Dantes, Antonio Salieri) I've been too focused on physical injuries... It appears that I may need to consider psychological injuries as well.
I wonder what I could do for those in need of such care...
Conversation 6 (Edmond Dantes) Um...
Sir...?
Is there something on my face?
What do you mean by when you say "how unfortunate..."?
Conversation 7 (Altria Pendragon (Santa Alter), Jeanne (Alter Santa Lily), Attila the San(ta), Quetzalcoatl (Samba/Santa)) Oh. So a number of Santas came before me...
Medics who roam the world with gifts for others only during the Holy Night.
Oh? You want me to say it?
Well then...
Merry...Christmas.
Likes Being sanitary is a good thing.
Maintaining hygiene, health... They are very precious things.
Do you understand?
Dislikes There is nothing worse than being unsanitary.
The collapse of a hygienic environment, injuries, sickness... All these are horrible things.
They are distressing and should not exist in this world.
About the Holy Grail This bell is no longer a Holy Grail.
I am embarrassed by my earlier actions...
And so even if the Holy Grail reappears, I will not accept it again.
Lives can only be saved by the efforts of others.
During an Event Is there a festival?
That means a first aid station will be needed. Let's head out!
Birthday Happy birthday.
I shall bake you a cake. Would you take a bite?
I may not be able to make anything elaborate, but even I can use the oven.
Summon (Temporary) Thank you.
That's right. Thank you. I am very happy.
I do not quite understand what you mean by contract,
but now you can continue to assist me.
So let us head out.
The night to eradicate all diseases has just begun.
Summon (Permanent) How are you all doing? Are you all feeling well?
That's right. It is I.
Come again? Archer? What are you talking about?
I am simply one who soars through the night sky to save lives.
I ask you once again to take good care of me.
