*** Speaking of Command Seals, the Master of Rider, Isemi, uses his Command Seal to supposedly incarnate Perseus (as in give him a physical form) before [[spoiler:he dies]]. In the main ''Fate'' verse, while Command Seals are certainly powerful and represent a lot of prana, there's no real indication that Command Seals would be capable of performing such an extraordinary feat, or even of sustaining him in Servant form for longer than his usual couple hours.

*** Also on the subject of Command Seals, in main ''Fate'' works, every Master in a Grail War gets exactly three Seals of equal power, with any difference in power between Masters purely down to who you manage to summon and one's own skill as a magus and a strategist. In ''Proto'', there seems to be a hierarchy of power among Masters, themed after the angelic hierarchy found in Christian apocrypha, especially ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summa_Theologica Summa Theologica]]'', starting at "Princes" and going up to "Seraphim", gaining more "wings" as you go. Exactly how it works has never been elaborated on, however.

** The Master of Rider, Isemi, is removed from the Grail War [[spoiler:by death]] before the War properly starts, and the now-Masterless Rider spends much of his time in the narrative trying to win the War on his own [[spoiler:so that he may wish for Isemi's resurrection]], this time amounting to at least a couple weeks, like in other ''Fate'' stories. In ''F/SN'', not only would the Grail and the Church Overseer probably try to find a replacement Master before the fight commenced (as a Masterless Servant winning the War would make the intended use of the Grail moot), but unless Rider had a nice, ''fat'' Independent Action skill (usually reserved for Archers), he'd have about all of, oh, ''two hours'' or so to make his dream a reality before disappearing. ''F/SN'' is explicit about Servants needing a Master's prana to stay manifested, or they're in a lot of trouble. Either that, or Rider would have to resort to [[ImAHumanitarian less savory]] methods to stay manifested, which there's no indication of in ''Proto''.

Added DiffLines:

** On a more minor note, in ''F/SN'' and later ''Fate'' works, Command Seals almost always appear on the back of a Master's hand, with exceptions often requiring intent and planning to facilitate (such as Ilya's case). In ''Proto'', their place of appearance tends to be a lot more varied, with the Sajyous having theirs on their chests, Misaya having hers on her back between her neck and shoulders, one of the unnamed Masters having theirs below the left eye, Isemi having it on his palm, and Sancraid having his on his ''tongue''.

*** Especially notable on this front is Proto-Gilgamesh's true NP, Enki: Sword of the End - which replicates the Flood of Utnapishtim, covering the world in water. Small wonder that it wasn't kept considering that it be pretty hard to hide a secret war when one of the participants floods the city and the other takes out said flood with one incredibly blast of energy. [[note]]''Fate/Grand Order'', in particular, would later go on to explicitly state that ''no'' Noble Phantasm from a normal Servant has the power to destroy the entire planet completely due to the World's interference. (Though it is also revealed that this is not always the case in certain realities.) And even if one did, attempting to invoke it would likely kill the user (And his/her Master if they have one) stone dead before it could fire unless they have a viable source of mana. Said [=NPs=] capable of planetary destruction are also classified as ''Anti-Planet/Anti-Star'' (depending on the translation) rather than "Anti-World". Which makes sense to a degree thanks to the differing connotations that the word ''world'' can imply.[[/note]]

* {{Yandere}}: A flashback in ''Fragments'' reveals that Proto-Mordred was apparently even more ''extremely'' obsessed over his father than his [[LightNovel/FateApocrypha female counterpart]]. To the point he wanted to destroy everything Arthur cared about until he only had Mordred to focus his attention on.
