Yay, Saber wins.
But isn't it funny how Avalon is more powerfully than the sword itself (not by power but by hax and how usefully it is in combat)?
Indeed. Though, I think two of the servants from Fate/Zero might possibly be able to handle it. Lancer can ignore any armor/defense with his NP and Berserker can just snatch it from Saber in which case, Avalon becomes his. *maybe*
@brolybankai: And that's supposed to be impressive, how? With Excalibur, Saber's able to wipe out anything in the path of the blast, down to the last atom. Not to mention her better reaction time and precog-like battle instincts. Quit wanking Bleach.
@supernova7005: The flight advantage might be an issue (seeing as Saber did have difficulty against Rider's Pegasus), but Ichigo's attacks aren't gonna be able to easily get around Saber's instincts as both foes (if Ichigo is in FGT) are on par in speed. As for Mugetsu, milking an Excali-blast and using a prana burst at maximum output with her armor should allow her to fend off the attack. Saber's attacks with Excalibur are about on par with the destructive capacity of Mugetsu and her armor was able to hold up for a time against an attack from Gilgamesh's Ea in its uncharged state, the mentioned weapon being capable of destroying an entire city (and destroyed Iskander's Reality Marble in Fate/ Zero) in its state when Saber was up against Gil.
Actually, Mugetsu might be a foolish move to make use of against Saber here considering it's one-time use whereas Saber is capable of using Excaliblasts a number of times in succession before it takes a toll on her mana reserves.
@Dream: saber's excalibur or the uncharged enuma elish are town+ to small city level in destructive capacity, which should be at max as strong as ulquiorra's lanza del relampago. ichigo in H2 form itself caught that attack and crushed it with his bare hand without a scratch. im sure FGT ichigo would be able to tank an excalibur or ea as he broke out of a full incanted kurohitsugi with a flick of his wrist, and that attack also had enough gravity to distort space and time.avalon is a non factor here as she cant attack when its active. in FSN, berserker's swings were too much for her to take on and he was overpowering her with his physical strength, we know FGT ichigo has much more physical strength as he casually swings his sword and destroys mountains, so i don't see her having a chance at winning.
honestly i can see saber easily beating anyone upto vizard ichigo and grimmjow, but anyone from ulquiorra and above should be able to take her.
which should be at max as strong as ulquiorra's lanza del relampago
Possibly true with Excalibur, but the attack wouldn't get around Ea as Gilgamesh could simply raise the output enough to outmatch the attack as the sword is a life-wiper at its strongest output and Gilgamesh is consistently portrayed as not going all-out in his fights in the Fate franchise. Even FGT Ichigo wouldn't be able to survive a blast from Ea if Gil got serious enough.
he broke out of a full incanted kurohitsugi with a flick of his wrist, and that attack also had enough gravity to distort space and time
I interpret the highlighted part as hyperbole considering this was a character statement coming from Aizen's mouth, especially when he was cocky and underestimating FGT Ichigo throughout much of their match.
avalon is a non factor here as she cant attack when its active
Outside of the sheathe protecting Saber from any destructive attacks on the physical plane of existence, Avalon also reflects said attacks back at their target hence why its use was banned here. It would have made this battle completely pointless.
in FSN, berserker's swings were too much for her to take on and he was overpowering her with his physical strength
Weak example to be using here. Saber getting overwhelmed had more to do with her stats being weakened due to Shiro being her Master in Fate route, who had little mana to supply her and lacked formal training as a magus. With Rin or Kiritsugu as her Master, Saber's stats are close to how they were when she was alive as King Arthur as she can trade blows with Hercules' sword and dispatch him with an Excali-blast. As Saber Alter, her stats surpass her time alive as King Arthur and she could easily dispose of Berserker in Heaven's Feel route.
we know FGT ichigo has much more physical strength as he casually swings his sword and destroys mountains
FGT Ichigo cleaving apart sections of mountains with sword swings is supposed to be impressive compared to a blast of divine power that can vaporize its target down to the last atom as Bluebeard's gargantuan monster felt in Fate/ Zero? I don't think so.
but anyone from ulquiorra and above should be able to take her.
In singles battle, Saber should be able to dispatch them with difficulty.
Judging from your comments, either you haven't seen enough from the Fate franchise to know the full scope of character abilities from the franchise or you're trying to downplay feats in favor of Bleach.
