* ForMassiveDamage: His Interfectum Dracones Noble Phantasm basically fires FrickinLaserBeams that are super effective against dragons. When preceded by [[BalefulPolymorph Abyssus Draconis]]...

* DrivesLikeCrazy: Despite having a B rank Riding skill, Kairi says the only thing she should drive is a tank; everything else is sturdy enough to survive her driving.

* BloodKnight

to:

* BloodKnightBloodKnight: She enjoys fighting so much she could qualify for the Berserker class on this fact alone.



* DrivesLikeCrazy: Despite having a B rank Riding skill, Kairi says the only thing she should drive is a tank; everything else is sturdy enough to survive her driving.



* OneHandedZweihander: It's repeatedly mentioned that she usually wields Clarent with just one hand allowing her to punch, grab and throw her enemies. [[spoiler:When Chiron breaks one of her arms, her fighting style is completely unaffected and she returns the favor by slashing him across the chest.]]



* {{Stripperiffic}}: Her civilian outfit is a [[WhoWearsShortShorts pair of Daisy Dukes]], a [[BareYourMidriff tube top]], and an open red jacket.

* {{Stripperiffic}}: Her civilian outfit is a [[WhoWearsShortShorts pair of Daisy Dukes]], a [[BareYourMidriff tube top]], and an open red jacket. She isn't very happy about it.



* WhoWearsShortShorts: In her civvies. She's mildly annoyed by this as it is becoming of a knight.

* GrandTheftMe: Heroic example; She possesses the body of a French student named Laeticia to preside over the Holy Grail War. This also prevents her from assuming a spirit form and requires her to tasks such as sleeping and eating to ensure the body is in proper condition. There are measures in place that if Jeanne were to die, Laeticia would survive.

This also prevents her from assuming a spirit form and requires her to tasks such as sleeping and eating to ensure the body is in proper condition. There are measures in place that if Jeanne were to die, Laeticia would survive.



* TooAwesomeToUse: Jeanne's La Pucelle is a powerful attack that uses the flames of her execution but after its use Jeanne dies even if she beats an opponent with it.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: With Homunculus[=/=][[spoiler:Sieg]]. He's daft as a rock and she is [[ShrinkingViolet surprisingly shy when it comes to the subject.]]

it - it's basically her personal GodzillaThreshold, and it cannot be used merely to defeat a strong enemy, but in order to save something. The flipside, however, is that it annihilates ''anything'' in existence, hence its EX rank. [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice She ultimately uses it in order save humanity's future.]]]]

* IWillWaitForYou: Eventually, after [[spoiler:becoming a dragon and taking the Grail to the Reverse Side of the World, he stays there to wait for Jeanne, in an interesting reversal of the hidden ending of the Realta Nua version of the original FateStayNight, where Saber waited for Shirou in Avalon, and he eventually finds her. And like her, Sieg's wait eventually pays off.]]



* ScaledUp: [[spoiler:Because he has Siegfried's heart, he also has access to the dragon blood that Siegfried bathed in. As such, when pressed, he can actually ''become'' the dragon Fafnir]].

* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler:After he obtained the Dead Count Shapeshifter command seals, he became '''considerably''' stronger. Before this, Mordred was able to slay him in a single blow and didn't recognize the need to dodge his weak attack. Afterwards, however, he was able to overpower Mordred for a good portion of the fight, forcing Kairi to use a Command Seal to empower Mordred, and nearly defeated her Clarent Blood Arthur with the use of Balmung. Mordred even admits that he was still getting used to his new power and was not at full capacity; if she did not kill him then and there, she would most likely be killed in a future encounter.]]



* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler:Fights [[StoryBreakerPower Karna]] to a draw with minimal injuries even though Karna could partially overcome his Armor of Fafnir.]]



* {{Badass}}: His badassery is firmly established around the time he [[spoiler:takes on Mordred with just [[MixedMartialArts Pankration]] and manages to break one of her arms in the process.]]



* {{Badass}}: Holy shit, yes! He takes down a team of 50 Magi in 30 seconds early in the story and late in the first volume, [[spoiler:defeats Berserker of Red with his Noble Phantasm and leaves him for dead at the hands of Avicebron's Golems.]] Turned UpToEleven when [[spoiler:the Darnic!Vlad fusion fights six of the other Servants on equal ground, even as they were boosted by Jeanne's Command Spell to eliminate him.]]



* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice[=/=]SpikesOfDoom: Vlad's entire schtick. He can create spears, stakes, pikes and spikes of any kind [[{{Hammerspace}} out of nowhere]] and use them as projectiles and as a lance for personal use. He can even manifest these inside of his opponent's body, [[spoiler:Which he utilizes against Karna to bypass his Kavacha and Kundala. Unfortunately, Karna is so supremely {{Badass}} that he is barely inconvenienced by it.]]

* {{Badass}}: She easily takes out several of Caster of Black's golems, which are stated to be almost as strong as "lesser Servants". Even the Black Masters are impressed.



* {{Badass}}: ''Apocrypha'''s poster boy of this: [[spoiler:Not only is Jeanne and Siegfried scared shitless of his sheer power , with Jeanne's Revelations calling him "A Servant dangerous beyond compare", he fights Siegfried to a complete standstill while ''partially overcoming the Armor of Fafnir with sheer skill''. In Volume 2, he also lays the smack so thickly on Vlad III, the strongest Black Servant, that Darnic has to use Legend of Dracula and make Vlad flee to survive]]. The novel's claim of Karna being a "Gilgamesh-level Heroic Spirit" has not rung hollow so far.



* {{Badass}}: Said to not only be one of the most powerful Servants that can ever be summoned, but also the only Servant in the war that can stand up to Karna. He shows just a small part of this off by manhandling Siegfried and [[spoiler:fighting his master Chiron, the only enemy Servant who can ignore his invulnerability, on equal ground]].



* {{Badass}}: Despite being a low-tier Servant with dreadful stats besides Strength and Endurance, [[spoiler:he is mighty enough to push Lancer into using [[SpikesOfDoom Kazikli Bei]] to avoid their fight either lasting forever or at least heavy damaging the Black HQ. Even then he survives being impaled with 5 giant lances and is then dogpiled by Caster's Golems, who trap him.]]



* {{Badass}}: Darnic used to hold the title of "Grand", the highest achievable rank in the Magus Association besides "King" or "Queen", reserved for the headmaster and Vice-Director respectively, at the age of 30. [[spoiler:While in control of Dracula's body, he takes on '''six Servants by himself''' and forces a tie.]]



* {{Badass}}: Suprisingly enough. He [[spoiler:beats down Sieg, a Homunculus with far greater Circuits than he does, even turning out mostly unharmed from a ''point-blank explosion'' caused by his creation, before laying him out in a complete smackdown]].



* {{Badass}}: Despite being described as a [[BornUnlucky Born Loser]] in [[AllThereInTheManual the character materials]] released before the series began, he is quite possibly the most competent human on Black Team besides Fiore.



* {{Badass}}: Anyone who can [[spoiler:almost kill Fiore Yggdmillenia]] in a one-versus-one fight deserves the title.



* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler:Wipes out the incredibly powerful fusion of Darnic and Dracula with a handful of Black Keys and holy magic faster than you can say "The power of Christ compels you!".]]

* CoolHorse: Bayard the Phantom Warhorse, and St. George's ultimate Noble Phantasm.

to:

* CoolHorse: Bayard the Phantom Warhorse, and St. George's ultimate Noble Phantasm. Strangely enough, Bayard is an anachronism with this version of St. George - Bayard is a character from a ''French'' tale (specifically "The Four Sons of Aymon") that occurred centuries later and arguably a Heroic Spirit in his own right, being able to understand human speech, had the supernatural ability to adjust his size to his riders, and smart enough to thwart the people who tried to execute him.
