Although having a small role in the actual storyline, Taiga is the star of "Tiger Dojo", a HaveANiceDeath hint corner which appears whenever the player receives a "BadEnd". In this segment, Taiga, along with Ilya, often admonish Shirou for making the poor choices which lead to his demise while dropping hints to help the player complete the game properly.

** [[spoiler:In order to thwart Zouken Matou's plan to [[HijackingCthulhu take over Angra Mainyu via Sakura]], Kirei secretly works behind the scenes to make sure Sakura [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds embraces her long-suppressed malice and seeks revenge upon the entire world as Angra Mainyu's avatar]]. When Sakura is in danger of having her mind destroyed by the Crest Worm, Kirei intervenes on her behalf by using his Command Seals to significantly prolong her life. However, while explaining Sakura's condition to Shirou and Rin at his Church, he characterizes her as a "bomb with a lit fuse" beyond saving [[ExactEavesdropping with the knowledge that Sakura is listening to their conversation]] (at his own suggestion no less). Upon hearing her sister argue to Shirou that they have no choice but to kill her, Sakura's hatred towards her sister and the entire world increases exponentially, a development that significantly increases her susceptibility to [[TheCorruption Angra Mainyu's influence]]. Ultimately, it driver her not only to kill hundreds of people in Fuyuki but become [[EnemyToAllLivingThings an existential threat to all of humanity]]. ]]

Added DiffLines:

* DeathSeeker: ''Maybe.'' While it's initially not clear at first, and doesn't become completely confirmed until midway through ''Unlimited Blade Works'', Shirou is a very disturbed individual. His brazen lack of self-preservation is definitely not a heroic or admirable trait, and many characters discuss how outright disturbing his suicidal pursuits are. It's possible that as a survivor of the fire, he has a lot of SurvivorGuilt, or is perhaps suffering from a form of PTSD.


Added DiffLines:

* VanillaProtagonist: Subverted to the point of being notable. Shirou is set up as a generic self-insert protagonist with a relatable goal and a personality that's easy enough for the reader to project onto. Around the time of ''Unlimited Blade Works'', Shirou's personality is slowly chipped away to reveal a mentally unsound individual with no sense of self-preservation. His lack of personality is because the trauma from the fire basically reset him to zero personality-wise, and he's never fully recovered.
