* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Let's be serious, most Magi in the {{Nasuverse}} are sociopaths in the name of Magic. So long as you don't draw too much attention to yourself from the mundanes, it's fine. However, Rin doesn't really want to wish for anything with the Holy Grail and she's very against the idea of innocent people being killed no matter what she says to the contrary. She's also a great believer in fair play.

* UsefulNotes/JapaneseChristian: Implied with the cross necklace she wears and her familial relationship with Kotomine. In the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' anime [[spoiler:after she realizes Kotomine killed her father]], she flings a whole slew of insults at him expressing her hope that he'll never be able to enter hell, Purgatory, or heaven. The Purgatory part is something you'd expect to only hear from someone with a Catholic background.

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Structural Analysis only allows Shirou to scan objects and see their inner workings. [[spoiler: However, this plays a BIG part of Unlimited Blade Works. UBW is basically a glorified recording device which keeps all the weapons Shirou has seen. Using Projection, he can call upon ANY of these weapons.]] More traditionally, the battles he partakes in start out shoddily at first, but by Heaven's Feel he calculates movements and plans down to the second.

* CripplingOverspecialization: He can only use Reinforcement and Structural Analysis in the beginning. This is justified, as he misunderstood his father's teachings on magic. [[spoiler: When he adds projection to that list, that's justified as well, as since his element and origin are both Sword, he is literally made for no other magic.]]

* ForHappiness: Shirou wants ''everyone'' to be happy. Deconstructed in ''Unlimited Blade Works''. [[spoiler: To clarify, unlike normal people who can somewhat create their own happiness, Shirou, thanks to his lack of any concept or sense of self preservation always places the need of others before his own and is completely unable to create his own happiness and has to live through others.]]

This is because [[EpicFail his misunderstood his dad's teachings on magic]] and thus causes himself great pain just with simple spells.

* TheyWouldCutYouUp: He has to keep his [[spoiler: Unlimited Blade Works]] ability secret because it's an extremely rare ability that appears at random--it cannot be learned or passed down through blood. People with abilities like this get [[http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/Sealing_Designation Sealing Designations]] from the Mage's Association. They call it the "greatest honor" a mage can get, but what it really amounts to is being incarcerated and frozen in time so their ability can be studied.

** On the other hand, Shirou [[spoiler: possesses his own Reality Marble, Unlimited Blade Works, which very few magic users have access to. Essentially a PocketDimension which is capable of storing and reproducing any bladed weapon that Shirou analyzes in exact detail, it can be expanded into normal space for a short while, though doing so requires an enormous amount of power (more than he can normally access) because it essentially amounts to imposing the reality represented by the marble into the world. However, this ability is what enables Shirou to create successful projections of Noble Phantasms without expending too much energy, as he is actually projecting a copy of the weapon existing within his Reality Marble]].

* FaceRealization: She tries to behave like a typical magus, but in each route she realizes she's no good at it. [[spoiler: Most prominent in Heaven's Feel when she can't bring herself to kill Sakura, and admits she no longer has any right to berate Shirou for his StupidGood tendencies.]]
* FingerGun: The Gandr spell is fired from the index finger. It should be a curse, but Rin's variant fires ''actual energy bullets'', and at an high rate. In the 2014 anime, she uses the entire hand to fire. She reverts to the index finger in Episode 8 though, possibly for a less powerful attack [[spoiler: (In particular, she was using it to intimidate a recently defeated Shinji into telling her the identiy of the Servant who killed Rider)]].

Rin genuinely cares for Sakura but for a variety of reasons she acts exceptionally cold towards her and always retreats to her mask around her. It works ''too'' well; Sakura being so convinced that her older sister sees her as an enemy and doesn't care for her is one of the things that push Sakura towards her RoaringRampageOfRevenge, and the exceptionally horrific last BadEnd is a direct result of this behavior.]]

However, by [[TheCorrupter manipulating Sakura into succumbing to her dark side]] and [[EnemyMine temporarily teaming up with Shirou]], Kirei ultimately [[OutGambitted out-gambits]] Zouken to become the FinalBoss of the story's climax.]]

* FinalSpeech: [[spoiler: At the end of ''Heaven's Feel'', Kirei gives a speech that even Shirou has to accept as right, asking such questions as whether not killing is always a sin and how everything deserves to be born into the world, regardless of their actions before and after.]]

* IneptMage: Not obvious at first because anyone looks magically talented in comparison to Shirou, but the only reason Kotomine doesn't mess up his magecraft at any point in the story [[spoiler: is because he is using the ten Command Spells he inherited from dear old dad in the last war as a power source. When you have ten things that are explicitly compared to "a miracle" to power your spells, it's hard to mess up.]]
* InterruptedSuicide: After concluding that his existence was a mistake, Kirei went to say goodbye to his wife. However, she took her own life to prove that Kirei loved her. She was mistaken, but Kirei didn't want that her death was a worthless one, so he kept on living. Arguably, he is still self-destructive considering that he wants to [[spoiler: set Angra Manyu free]].

* TheChessmaster: Of all the maguses in the Fourth Holy Grail War, he alone deduces that the Grail has been compromised and shrewdly waits out the ritual so he can perform experiments on its remains without outside interference. As a result of this move, he gains a massive trump card during the Fifth Grail War which he uses to devastating effect against the other Masters throughout ''Heaven's Feel''. [[spoiler: Ultimately, however, all his meticulous scheming comes to nothing when he makes the fatal mistake of gravely underestimating Sakura's strength of will (an oversight that leads to her literally crushing him like a bug)]]

* {{Narcissist}}: A malignant example (one with prominent traits commonly associated with psychopathy). In all his appearances in Fate/Stay Night, Zouken is consistently portrayed as an egomaniacal and unrepentantly cruel magus who has no qualms murdering countless innocents to prolong his existence despite already living for several centuries. He arrogantly [[AboveGoodAndEvil views all maguses who set moral boundaries on their ambition and pursuit of knowledge as fools lacking the vision and resolve to achieve true greatness]]. He is also shown to be an unrepentant [[{{Sadist}} sadist]] who [[FortheEvulz finds physical and psychological torture to be very entertaining]]. [[spoiler:After being fatally wounded by Sakura, it is revealed that one of his reasons for seeking immortality is to [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex overcompensate for the shame of presiding over the decline and fall of the Makiri bloodline]]. However, before dying, he remembers that he originally sought the Grail to [[VisionaryVillain reach an ideal utopia free of hatred and suffering where all knowledge was attainable]]. Upon being forced to confront defeat,he ultimately resigns himself to his fate after realizing that future maguses will inevitably follow in his footsteps to make his dream a reality thereby forever securing his place in history..]]

* SmugSnake: While ''FAR'' more powerful an adversary than [[InadequateInheritor his grandson, Shinji,]] could ever hope to be, Zouken's meticulous plans are similarly undermined by his own overconfidence and self-absorption. [[spoiler: Despite becoming dangerously close to [[GrandTheftMe taking over Sakura's body]] and ultimately [[HijackingCthulhu seizing control over Angra Mainyu]], he overlooks the fact that his entire plan depends on Sakura remaining an ExtremeDoormat right up until her mind breaks down. Ultimately, this flaw leads to Zouken's demise after Sakura becomes [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity corrupted by her power]] and [[TheDogBitesBack finally rebels against him after enduring years of torture and sexual abuse]].]]
