Added DiffLines:

* BreakTheHaughty: Each time he appears [[spoiler:barring Chapter 37]], [[SmugSnake Kakizaki]] assumes he's on top of the world and acts like everyone and everything else is beneath him. Each time, Shirou brutally shatters that arrogance, reducing Kakizaki to a pathetic wreck. The biggest example comes in Chapter 36, in which [[spoiler:Kakizaki assumes he's completely untouchable after he and his boss kidnap Shirou's sister and assume they can use her as leverage to force Shirou to serve them. Shirou pretends to play along, then he nails Kakizaki's hand to the dinner table with a spoon and cows him into terrified silence with his Asura Mask]]. By the following chapter, Kakizaki's ego is completely shattered, to the point of where the mere sight of Shirou causes him to freeze up. [[spoiler:He then suffers a VillainousBreakdown before receiving a brutal execution]].

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. Whenever Tsukiumi goes into "tsun-tsun" mode and tries to attack Shirou with water, Akitsu always freezes it in place before it can touch him. He also doesn't hesitate to use [[spoiler:his Asura DemonHead technique to cow his Sekirei into submission whenever they get rowdy]].
** Played straight with [[ButtMonkey Seo]]. Like in canon, it's PlayedForLaughs.

* AdjustingYourGlasses: Kakizaki does this whenever he thinks he's got the upper hand, or, more commonly, when he attempts to reassert himself after someone makes a fool of him.

Added DiffLines:

* ConsummateProfessional: Shirou is the kind of man who can put together complex plans for carrying out assassinations, potential escape routes, ways to approach dangerous situations, etc. And all with a calm, stern expression on his face.
** Subverted with Higa and Kakizaki. They think they're professionals, but the truth is that they're amateurs who stumble repeatedly when faced with a real professional.

* [[AintNoRule Ain't No Rule]]: That says that an Ashikabi can't fight another Ashikabi. Considering how badass Shirou is -- and naturally, [[CombatPragmatist he's the one who brought this up]] -- the opposing Ashikabi is pretty much screwed.
** Even better, he brings it up to Kakizaki, a man who thought [[SmugSnake he was the only one smart enough to figure this out]]. [[LaserGuidedKarma Oh how wrong he was]].



* CompletelyMissingThePoint: After Musubi mentions that Shirou defeated a Sekirei all by himself, Uzume calls her out on allowing her Ashikabi to risk his life. Musubi's reaction?

** As of the DistantFinale, his harem consists of Akitsu, Matsu, [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship Musubi, Tsuikiumi]], [[spoiler:[[AttractiveBentGender Homura]], [[LoveFreak Kazehana]], [[JailBaitWait Kuu]], and [[InLoveWithYourCarnage Karasuba]], also with the implication that [[TeacherStudentRomance Miya]], [[BiTheWay Uzume and Chiyo]], and [[SexWithTheEx Saber and Rin]] are also tentatively involved in some capacity]], bringing his total to thirteen. It's a good thing most of them are willing to double up on the sleeping schedule.

*** Don't [[IncrediblyLamePun forget]] about her ** Akitsu has a habit of forgetting things. things, saying "Ah, I forgot."



*** He's not immune so much as he's built up a resistance to it. That, plus the fact that Shirou outright states that Miya's full wrath is even scarier than her mask.



*** Not as much of a shock when you take into account the salient points: A) Miya's opponent was a Fraga magus using Fragarach; B) Fragarach, due to GB having trouble finding research material on it when writing the scene, writes up the weapon as being a absorb/return-type counter, as opposed to the cancellation-type counter that it really is, (thus using Miya's own force against her,) C) she was not expecting the attack at all, and had been distracted by Shirou an instant before it lands, which while it probably saved her life, it also probably caused her to take the hit right in the face.



*** [[spoiler:With the introduction of the Jinki, Shirou finally has a bridge for ending the Sekirei Plan. By gathering at best case five Jinki or at least three Jinki during Phase 3 of the Sekirei Plan, when all Eight Jinki are at one location Shirou can destroy it or at least hide it all so the MBI CANNOT continue the plan.]]



* HumiliationConga: Shirou so far is building one for [[spoiler:[[ManipulativeBastard Higa]]]]. [[spoiler:He first denies Higa of [[{{Tsundere}} Tsuki]][[MakingASplash umi]] in his own territory, backfired his bounty attempt so badly that it WORSENED Shirou's status as TheDreaded, sent [[BloodKnight Kara]][[DarkActionGirl suba]] over to cause chaos at his home base, rescued [[IllGirl Chiho]] from his hospital and even gave a warning to NEVER enter the North to one of his Sekirei.]] This may not even be the LAST of it.

** Many people now consider [[ManipulativeBastard Higa]] this [[spoiler:after kidnapping Yukari and trying to control Shirou through her.]] It is one thing to unknowingly enter a demon's lair; it is another to willingly enter it, [[BullyingADragon threaten]] [[MuggingTheMonster it]], and demand something from it without thinking about the potential consequences.
