*** Gilgamesh is subject to IWorkAlone / LonersAreFreaks / IneffectualLoner. After equaling Gate of Babylon with the first fact, and surpassing it with the second, and Gilgamesh starting to undergo SanitySlippage over the fact he suffered the first invasion in his life, as Gilgamesh is ranting about how he now understands what Iskander felt during his conquests, and is about to pull Ea (which would certainly fry Shirou's brain to death in this continuity), Shirou deals the finishing blow with the last one, channeling TrueCompanions TeamSpirit, accelerating saber by a whole 16 times, turning her into a divine flash of light unleashing Excalibur on him as a finishing blow. That's right, where in the UBW route, Shirou had a ItsPersonal mindset, here, Shirou never intended to kill Gilgamesh himself.

* Chapter 40 : When Shirou and Lorelei have a conversation about his progress in the Grail War and her dissatisfaction with it, Shirou calmly has a response to all of her complaints, and even phrases it in a way that a Magus like her could appreciate. And when that almost fails he threatens to [[InsaneTrollLogic kill her mortal nemesis before she does]]. And she actually takes that threat seriously. He then caps it all off by mentioning that if she lets him play things out his way, there could very well be multiple Servants running around the planet in future years, making ties with the Clocktower and amiable to using their power to hunting Apostles. That thought makes Lorelei [[SlasherSmile smile]].

** Shirou gets Luvia & the Princess to charge the approach; she possesses a herd of her bulls and rushes... but not [[spoiler:to attack Assassin or Caster. No, she spreads the herd out to ''burn down the goddamn forest'' that Assassin had been using to hide his traps. Even with targeting him being a lower priority that destroying his territory, they still nearly kill him.]]

*** Gilgamesh is in a way the {{Precursor}}, and in the Nasuverse this means he is the apex of mankind and YeGoodeOldeDays incarnate. As he says himself, mankind kept on degrading generation by generation, which is why according to him children cannot ever surpass their parents, however this means in turn for him that he [[StaticCharacter never had to evolve]], alter or modify any of his treasures, which again would be an insult against his {{Pride}}, showing inadequacy in his treasury hoarding the prototype designs to everything awesome in this world. Pointing this out, Shirou basically [[ShutUpHannibal counters it]] by making a very heartwarming [[KirkSummation summation]] of why HumansAreSpecial and have HiddenDepths (passing down their knowledge and wishes down to the next generation, so their children might do things differently; which is also, by the way, quite the Magus mindset), spawning fakes upon fakes with a very well applied Gradation Air to his projections as they break.

** After [[spoiler:getting shot in the chest with the Contender--having her heart blown to smithereens--]]Shirou ''gets back up''. "My body is made of blades" takes its most literal iteration as he [[spoiler:grows a heart made of blades, vomits blood with blades in it, and them transforms his throat, teeth, and tongue into swords upon swords. The imagery is so horrific that every single Servant present can do nothing more than stare. The reason he got up? What else--to save Illya.]]

** We finally get to know how Kiritsugu proceeds with LoopholeAbuse on Witch!Caster's restrictions: he can say anything as long as he words it as an open interrogation that could be interpreted as genuine amazement or incomprehension. He finally gets to use it in Princess!Caster's temple while the Witch is busy looking for Kirei, and to get Rin and Luvia's side to understand his predicament and provide him with a much needed update.

** Even the conclusion of said fight is epic, and worthy of the best canon had to offer in the Fate route and in the UBW route. Saber and Gilgamesh finally realize the real meaning behind this version of Unlimited Blade Works : it is not the result of Kiritsugu's dream, neither the symbol of Shirou's affection for his loved ones, not a hoard of fakes, nor a graveyard, it is a memorial for heroes and their pride. Gilgamesh surprised himself during the battle, thinking it might not be such a bad thing to die in that land. He finally gets his wish, giving Saber an appeased speech reminiscent of his dying words in the Fate route, with acknowledging Shirou as a WorthyOpponent, leaving him Enkidu as a parting gift, and WordOfGod stating he would have called him "Caretaker" of the dreams of heroes he bore witness to. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming because he gives Shirou the moniker "Dream of Heroes", acknowledging Shirou enough to trust him with the memento of his ONLY friend, so that he may be remembered as is fitting.
