* DeterminedDefeatist: Even when he's fighting opponents he couldn't possibly hope to match like Lancer, Rider, Berserker or Archer 2, Shirou never thinks about giving up for even a second. Even if Saber doesn't come to pull him out, he usually finds a clever way out of the situation.

* EvilerThanThou: Shinji faces off against other villains in every path; Ilyasviel in ''Fate'', Archer 2 in ''Unlimited Blade Works'', and [[spoiler:Dark Sakura]] in ''Heaven's Feel''. Too bad for him that he's the "Thou" part of the trope all three times.

* SmugSnake: Much like Archer 2, Shinji is arrogant and extremely self-entitled, but he lacks Archer 2's charisma and just comes across as a creepy, pathetic jerk who is largely overshadowed by the more powerful antagonists.

Both [[spoiler: want to unleash the Angra Manyu, but where as Kirei, for all the horrible things he does, has the sympathetic desire to want to know why he was born evil with a moral compass, Gilgamesh simply feels most of humanity deserves to die and wants to rule over the survivors, and if there aren't any he feels that all of them deserved to die.]]

* WeHardlyKnewYe: In the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' anime, they are slaughtered by Archer 2 before they show any personality. Not that they show any more in the other routes.

** In ''Unlimited Blade Works'', his fight against [[spoiler:Archer]] is this. It's an uphill battle from the start as [[spoiler:Archer being a future Shirou is so much stronger than him that even at 1/10 of his strength, Shirou can't land a hit. Near the end of the battle, Archer makes it's clear that Shirou is just a dead man walking but he just keeps on getting up.]]

** In ''Unlimited Blade Works'', it's the same for Shirou and Rin as the route continues. [[spoiler:Oddly this is even true for Heaven's Feel's epilogue where Shirou is dating Sakura.]]

** He's also a ClassicalAntiHero for a good part of the stories, considering how weak he is compared to other members of the cast until near the end of the routes.



* DeathIsCheap: By virtue of [[GoodThingYouCanHeal outrageous self-healing which can revive someone from the brink of death]].
-->'''Tohsaka''': Shirou, people normally [[MemeticMutation die when they are killed]]...



** This is actually an important part of [[spoiler: Rin and Sakura falling in love with him. Before the game began, they once saw a boy who endlessly tried to leap over a high jump that he wasn't good enough to jump, and something about that captivated the girl who easily did everything and the girl who had no hope to try anything.]]

** On one hand, he was born with almost zero talent as a mage. He was born into a family without a Magical Crest (which would make spells much easier to cast) and has received virtually no training whatsoever. Nevertheless, Shirou made up for his lack of knowledge through relentless training: by the time of the Fifth Grail War, he was sufficiently skilled with reinforcement to allow a rolled up poster to withstand blows from Servants, if only momentarily. His relative lack of proficiency in magecraft is further compensated for by his basic training in archery and swordplay, which is sufficient to allow him to fight off Caster's puppets in the Fate route.

And no matter what the route, Shirou ALWAYS has AwesomenessByAnalysis and ([[MultipleEndings depending on the player]]) excellent split-second tactical decision making.

'''Shirou:''' SHUT UP! …just… be quiet for a second… you can rely on others… rely on…\\
'''Saber:''' You're wrong. You're more important than me, your life is more important, so you should take care--"\\
'''Shirou:''' ''I want you more than anything else!'' There's not one thing that can replace you. Sorry, I… I like you the most out of everything. So I'm not going to let a guy like ''him'' take you!
