Fate/strange Fake is a light novel series that began being penned by Ryohgo Narita in 2015, though its actual origins are an April Fool’s joke from the author in 2008. The narrative follows an imperfectly copied version of the Third Holy Grail War called the False Holy Grail War, comprising several Masters and Servants who are either “True” or “False.”
