** Rider claims that she's repeatedly injuring Shinji by accident thanks to a skill called "Airhead." He doesn't buy it for a second.



* DVDCommentary: Each episode has an extra running commentary track in the form of either a [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Tiger Dojo]] or [[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} "Teach Me, Ciel-Sensei!"]] segment. The commentary for the second episode is notable for confirming that the remake of ''Tsukihime'' is still in the works, and asking the fans to look forward to its release.



* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Gilgamesh is this to the rest of the ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' cast rather than a full blown villain. Kotonime even states he's not invited to the Holy Grail Wars because he doesn't follow the rules.



* GeniusBonus: Knowing why Berserker thinks Lancer is a dog seems completely random unless one is familar with Irish Mythology.



** What makes Sakura's jerkassery so bizarre is that's she a Jerkass to the people that care for her, drop-kicking Rider who was trying to help her from her abuse from Shinji and going Yandere on Shirou, yet is forgiving of Shinji's abuse of her.

* OccidentalOtaku: Caster is Greek, but her room is stuffed full of self-made Saber memorabilia, including figurines of Saber's various forms and replicas of Saber Lily's and Saber Alter's armor, and the dress she used to humiliate Saber in "Unlimited Blade Works".

* BadassUnintentional: Berserker. Without making any deliberate effort on his part, the time he was sent to do an errand for Ilya was also the same day he won the 5th Holy Grail War by himself.
* BackToBackBadasses: Hilariously subverted. Shiki and Shirou do wind up literally back to back at one point, both facing the same lethal threat. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:said lethal threat is Saber and Arc, who are ''extremely'' pissed that each respective guy tried to be a player all day to their universe's respective love interests.

** Made even better by a previous sly little shot shown between Shiki and Shirou running about trying to please everyone: the shot shows Shiki confidently taking off his glasses to combat a wild bear he meets in the woods on his way to seeing one of the girls. The man can take on a bear with nothing but his [[MagicalEye magical eyes]] and his knife, but still trembles in fear of his [[ActionGirlfriend girlfriend]]. Of course, the bear would have simply killed him; Arcueid can do [[FateWorseThanDeath much worse]]. He even points this out in episode 4.
* BaitAndSwitch: Done with the Holy Grail War in the first episode. The intro montage introduces it as usual, as a battle to the death between the seven Servants, until Ilya makes the sudden announcement that [[GameShow the rules have changed]].
