The Nasuverse is a collection of fantasy works done by Nasu Kinoko, ranging from visual novels, games, and light novels, all of which take place within the same multiverse. Many of them have adaptations and spin-offs of varying quality (from doesn't exist to awesome) and canonicity. It's infamous for it's complex lore and broken powers within the OBD. Because of its complexity much of the information is present within scattered interviews and databooks.
Note that despite being written by Nasu, DDD and Canaan aren't canon to the Nasuverse.
Tsukihime chronicles the story and life of a teenage boy named Shiki Tonho. As a young boy, Shiki suffered a life-threatening injury. As a result of this injury, Shiki became able to see "death lines" on objects and people; if Shiki traces these lines with a sharp object, the person or object that they belong to will be cleanly and easily cut. Soon after discovering this power, he is given a special pair of glasses by a mysterious woman. While wearing these glasses, Shiki cannot see the lines, and can thus live life as normal. Later, Shiki discovers that he can also see a place where the lines meet known as "points" on objects and people; these act as more immediate and powerful versions of the "lines." Eventually, it is revealed that Shiki is not merely killing a person or destroying an object when he cuts its lines or stabs its points, but is instead annihilating the victim/object's existence, therefore killing the victim/object as a side effect.
Melty Blood: This is essentially a continuation of Tsukihime after the events of Shiki and certain vampires in town past. To be honest, it’s a bit more complicated then that, as its foundation is in the games. Anyway, a bunch of new stuff happens and a bunch of new characters come into play in the series.
Fate/stay night: This is a series about Servants from myths of the past of human legend, which are resurrected in a form to take part in a battle between Magi for the Holy Grail. The winner of the battle will be granted any wish. There are “competitor, and the protagonist of this story is Emiya Shirou. Shirou’s servant is named Saber, and she is one of the most powerful Servant in existence. However, Shirou can only use a limited amount of manna; thus she cannot use all her power. It is from this tenet the story flows and continues. It’s a bit more elaborate, but introduction is enough. Anyway, Shirou also makes their battle harder because he’s a rather inexperienced Magi, very kind, and adopts a defensive stance towards the competition. Note, in terms of physical abilities in the games, Saber and other servants do things like hundreds upon hundreds of attacks in under one second.
The prequel to Fate/stay night. Merely recited in fragments in Fate/Stay Night, this is the Fourth War of the Holy Grail 10 years ago. The truth which unfolded behind the battle between Shirou's foster father, Rin's father, and the younger Kotomine Kirei, is finally revealed......

Fate Grand Order
A mobile game that everyone should know about.
Applies to Kiara's DC when using Angra Mainyu/CCC and Origin Servant Durability
Applies to the durability of most servant's armor (the ones that have armor anyway)
Applies to Excalibur's DC, derived from Chaos' Saber Splits a Cloud. Also applies to other attacks and durabilities though only at a fraction of the power (ex pegasus's DC and durability, Rho Aias' durability, Gilgamesh's armor, etc)
Applies to Rider's Pegasus' speed and the beam speed of Excalibur, which was shown to be much faster than Pegasus
Also gives mach 45 reactions since Lancer was able to react to Saber when she was moving three times as fast and Saber was still able to react while still in motion. Applies to close combat type servants, and those that can keep up with them through (Arcueid, Ciel, Void Ryougi, Kouma, Aoko)
Applies to the speed of the top tiers and the ceiling for the backup that the world can give to Arcueid.
Applies to Arcueid's Moon drop and Zelretch's maximum power when using the "Magic Square".
Edited result is in the comments. Applies to Aoko's magic attacks, Caster's casual attacks, Roa's magic (both Caster and Roa should be largely superior to Aoko before she gained True Magic), and the striking strength of most combat-type servants (Archer, who has one of the lowest strength ranks, was able to deflect Caster's beams).
Applies to Berserker's striking strength (who was able to deflect a weakened Excalibur) and Shirou, Archer, and Gilgamesh's sword spam (Gilgamesh was able to deflect one of Berserker's strikes with sword spam while Shirou/Archer was able to deflect Gil's in turn).
Should scale to a majority of Servants as Heracles was able to punch a Broken Phantasm version (overcharged to the point of it exploding) of it out of the air.
Should scale to almost every servant, as Medea was able to react to it, and Herk punching ito ut of the air.
Excalibur Speed Hollow Ataraxia
Multiple servants have either dodged or blocked Excalibur.
Should scale to servants, as they are much stronger than Hansa.
- Crimson King
- Gundam Meister
- Raidou Kuzunoha
- Tranquil Fury
- Kischur Zelretch Schweinorg
Current Nasuverse threads are known to be very shitty due to three main reasons:
- a bunch of terribad wankers blowing feats out of proportions, and equally bad downplayers trying to cockblock them with ridiculous arguments
- discussions about mechanics of the characters abilites rather than fight itself, so when you go to thread with Berserker don't expect enjoyable debate, but unending, boring bitching about God Hand's limits (Also known as the Nasu derail)
