Archer is sarcastic and cynical. His hardened demeanor is assisted by a complex and dark personality which reveals rare occurrences of compassion and unfolds throughout the story. Though skilled with ranged weapons, he can hold his own in hand-to-hand combat. He considers Shirō Emiya's idealism to be weak and delusional, recognizing Shirō's mentality of "wanting to save everyone" as naïve and impossible.
