"With the Wave, Fidchell, the power to tell the dark future, hope darkens, sadness and despair rule."
— Epitaph of Twilight —

Fidchell (フィドヘル, Fidoheru) is the 4th Phase of the Cursed Wave and was referred to as "The Prophet".


Epitaph of Twilight

In the Epitaph of Twilight, Fidchell's prophecies of a dark future cause the light of hope to be lost in the lands the Wave visits, resigning to despair and hopelessness.


Realizing that Lios was no longer willing to help him, Kite was forced to find other ways to combat the Cursed Wave. Help soon came in the form of a plan developed by Wiseman in conjunction with the infamous hacker Helba. The two planned to try and seal part of the Wave in a specific location where it could be fought without damaging the rest of the system. Fidchell was located shortly afterwards in Σ Turbulent Distrusting Ice Wall and Kite and BlackRose traveled to battle with it. After a tough fight, the Phase was finally defeated. However, even with Helba's assistance the data fluctuations created by its destruction spread throughout the net and damaged systems all around the world.

.hack//Another Birth

Fidchell is fought by the team of Kite, BlackRose, and Wiseman. BlackRose is shocked when it uses its "Oracle: Devil Quake" attack, as none of the previous Phases they encountered up to this point had the ability to talk. BlackRose and Kite focus on attacking while Wiseman heals the party. BlackRose is Data Drained during the battle, but rather than falling into a coma she is afflicted by a large number of status ailments. Once its protection is broken, Kite Data Drains Fidchell and receives a segment of Aura. The weakened Fidchell is easily beaten with Wiseman delivering the final blow, but it utters an ominous prophecy as it crumbles.


In XXXX, Fidchell is easily defeated by the party of Kite, Balmung, and Cubia.

Fidchell's Prophecies

This quote is apparently a fragment of the Epitaph of Twilight. He says it after being defeated.

"Like a frenzied horse that is driven. An unseen wind of plague shrieks across the border. Pandemonium, wailing, and stench of carnage fills the air. There is no place to run. No hope of escape. Those who are mourned will never return. The hands of time cannot be turned back."

Data Drained Item

  • Segment 2


  • According to conceptual information from Archives 03 and the Liminality Easter Eggs, Fidchell is a program designed to collect data on the human concept of unavoidable fate.
  • Fidchell casts his Oracle first before each major elemental attack. The Oracle lowers all teammates' tolerance towards that certain element that it called forward.
  • Fidchell's original Japanese name was spelled as Fidhell, and the name was changed because Fidchell is a Celtic version of chess, and according to legends it often has a mystical or divinatory aspect to it. Battles ebb and flow as a result of a game of fidchell. (However, in Celtic transcripts, the letters "ch" are to be pronounced as a strong "h", thus "Fidchell" is actually pronounced as "FidHell". Thus the Japanese phonetic transliteration was indeed correct.)
  • Fidchell was the first phase that could talk in the original .hack//Games.
  • Volume 3 of Another Birth erroneously refers to Fidchell as the fifth phase.
