Gate of Babylon

Gate of Babylon refers to a golden key that connects to the treasury of series antagonist Gilgamesh which contains every known noble phantasm from across the world. When activated, Gilgamesh is able to summon these weapons from his treasury through a dimensional gate which he then use as projectiles during battle. This ability has become the subject of fanart by fans with variations that replaces Gilgamesh and his weapons with characters and objects from various other media.
