Saber Alter's true name is Altria Pendragon (sometimes localized as Artoria Pendragon), who is based on the English mythological figure, King Arthur. In her Alter form, Saber wears head-to-toe clothing in black and carries a jet-black version of the holy sword, Excalibur. When in her Alter form, Saber's appearance not only changes but so does her personality. Saber Alter is cruel and cold-hearted, completely different from the kind and peaceful disposition of normal Altria.

Saber Alter makes appearances in several games in the Fate series, as well as in Carnival Phantasm, a comedy manga, and OVA featuring a variety of characters from Type-Moon games. She makes her first appearance in Fate/stay night during the Heaven's Feel route, where she becomes corrupted by darkness from Angrya Manyu. Once transforming in Saber Alter, she becomes Dark Sakura's servant. Due to her master Dark Sakura's infinite magical powers, Saber Alter is said to have the ability to even overwhelm a Berserker in battle.

Saber Alter was designed by Takashi Takeuchi, one of the co-founders of Type-Moon. Her character regularly appears in popularity polls held by Type-Moon, ranking 16th in the Fate/stay night's 2006 popularity poll.
