Basic Chronological Order

  1. Fate/Zero (2011-2012)
  2. Fate/Stay Night (2006)
  3. Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works (2010-2014)
  4. Fate/Stay Night: Heaven’s Feel (movie trilogy) (2017-2020)

  6. Fate Apocrypha (2017)
  7. Fate/Extra Last Encore (2018)

If you want to follow the main storyline, this chronological order of the show and movies will be sufficient. However, if you wish to dive into the vast extended universe of the Fate series, here’s a more detailed order.

  1. Fate/Zero
  2. Fate/Stay Night
  3. Lord El-Melloi II Case Files

(The events of this special occur after Fate/Zero (4th Holy Grail War) and before Fate/Stay Night (5th Holy Grail War).)

4. Today’s Menu for Emiya Family

(This is an alternate happy ending to the 5th Holy Grail War)

5. Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

6. Fate/Stay Night: Heaven’s Feel (movie trilogy)

7. Fate/Grand Order

(Events of this happen in a completely different timeline, separated from the original plot. The 1st Holy Grail War does not happen at all.)

8. Fate/Extra Last Encore

(The Fate/Extra Universe also takes place in a separate world, with a different timeline, wholly separated from the original plot.)

9. Fate/Kaleid Prisma☆Illya

(The events of this occur in an alternate universe, separating from the core plot before the start of the 1st Holy Grail War.)

10. Fate/Prototype

(Again, this completely diverges from the actual plot, and the events of it take place in a completely different universe.)

There you have it, the complete watching order to Fate Series. Apart from its main magical storyline, the Fate Series has a lot of fantastical stories to offer with its alternate universe OVAs and Spinoffs. Happy Watching!
