* [[AintNoRule Ain't No Rule]]: That says that an Ashikabi can't fight another Ashikabi. Considering how [[{{Badass}} badass]] Shirou is -- and naturally, [[CombatPragmatist he's the one who brought this up]] -- the opposing Ashikabi is pretty much screwed.

* AlasPoorVillain: Yomi, #43 - sort of, anyway. Although she killed the MBI soldiers in her path and threatened Kusano, she was pretty much forced to realise, in terror, just what it meant to fight Shirou, and her defeat is followed by weakly calling out for her Ashikabi. She presumably didn't even realise the severity of her actions, [[RaisedByWolves being a Sekirei and all]]. Shirou is quite annoyed that this trope is in play (given that he doesn't ''want'' to pity her after she scared Kuu) but of course [[{{Badass}} Shirou]] can never stop being [[NiceGuy Shirou]].

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Sure, Shirou is a peaceful and easygoing fellow who will never turn away from people that need help and will go out of his way to be nice to others, but DON'T, under ANY circumstances piss him off. He is a [[{{Badass}} badass]] veteran of an ultra-brutal war who has no qualms about ending his opponents in a quick and violent manner. Now then -- what would you like for dinner?

* CrapsackWorld: Shirou's idea of [[AllMythsAreTrue "The Age of Gods"]]. Sure, it was a WorldOfBadass back then, but only if you were {{Badass}} yourself. Human life-expectancy was much shorter, {{Muggles}} were at the whim of {{Jerkass God}}s and there was nothing you could do about it.

[[note]]It also helps that Miya is one of the wives of the Emiya Clan.[[/note]] Even though, [[WordofGod according to Gabriel Blessing]], while Miya and Shirou will be getting closer, they will only be very good friends at the most, much to the {{Fandom}}'s dismay.

* StayInTheKitchen: [[{{Badass}} Shirou]] is frequently told by his Sekirei, mainly Homura, to stay off the battlefield. Naturally, he never listens.

Added DiffLines:

* LoveCannotOvercome: A magus's pride and at times human nature. Musubi, who's LoveFreak tendencies are deconstructed to being a distortion, doesn't take such revelations well.

* NoIndoorVoice: Yukari's way of greeting Shirou over the phone is shouting "ONII-CHAAAAAN!!!" at the top of her lungs. In chapter 14, he [[GenreSavvy holds the phone away from his ear to preserve his hearing]], but Yukari stays quiet until he puts the phone to his ear. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny She admits (without an ounce of shame) that she waited until she heard his breathing before attempting to deafen him.]]

* TheReveal: [[WhamEpisode The Twenty-Fourth Wing]][[spoiler: revealed the AwfulTruth of both himself and of the Holy Grail War without revealing the existence of {{Nasuverse}} magic. The Twenty-Sixth Wing revealed the existence of {{Nasuverse}} magic and Shirou's true thoughts of why he didn't want to reveal it. The Twenty-Eighth Wing revealed the differences between the Holy Grail War and the Sekirei Plan, Shirou's goal in joining the plan, and Saber's identity to the residents. The Twenty-Ninth Wing reveals Miya's truth of the Sekirei Plan and about the Jinki, which can cause MASS GENOCIDE! The Thirty-First Wing reveals some more of the Nasuverse, Shirou's idea of [[CrapsackWorld "The Age]] [[AllMythsAreTrue of Gods"]], its connection to the Grail War, and more identities of some of the Heroic Spirits (Gilgamesh, Hercules, Medea, Cú Chulainn, and Sasaki Kojirō). The Thirty-Third Wing reveals more Nasuverse information, the spirits of the Earth Gaia and Alaya, the Akashic Record (The ROOT), the [[SpannerInTheWorks Counter]] [[DivineIntervention Force]] ([[GenreSavvy which Shirou himself admits that he could be one for the Sekirei Plan]]), the [[DarkMessiah Counter Guardians]] which then leads to the final Servant of the Holy Grail War Archer and HIS Identity as an alternate future possibility of Shirou EMIYA, how they both differ from each other, and finally Reality Marbles and the reveal of his [[FieldOfBlades Unlimited Blade Works]]. In the Thirty-Seventh Wing, Shirou reveals more in depth of his tracing and that [[FieldOfBlades his body is literally made of swords]]. The Thirty-Eighth Wing reveals more information about his adopted father [[LightNovel/FateZero Kiritsugu Emiya, his role during the Fourth Holy Grail War and the aftermath with the fire]]. The Fortieth Wing reveals the AwfulTruth about Shirou's distortion brought about by the fire and [[ThatManIsDead the main reason he abandoned his original name of Minato Sahashi]].]]

* WrongGenreSavvy: Shirou's experience with the Holy Grail War leads him to ''drastically'' misunderstand the nature of the Sekirei Plan for quite some time. [[spoiler:And once he understands (or thought he did, see Shirou's WhatTheHellHero above) and recovers from his FreakOut, [[GenreSavvy he sees the obvious differences between them]] and is terribly disappointed and angry with the MBI (see DudeNotFunny above).

** Mind you, Shirou is DangerouslyGenreSavvy in this story. Odds are, he ''knew'' that the MBI could track him if he used the card.

* CharacterDevelopment: Loads of it, and not just the main cast - Gabriel Blessing goes out of his way to make even one-off characters from ''{{Sekirei}}'' have some semblance of complexity, mostly by taking what's already there and expanding on it. It mostly works.

* TheStationsOfTheCanon: Averted. Shirou moves into Izumo House and gets [[{{Sekirei}} Minato]]'s harem, but he also gets Akitsu, the circumstances of several of the wingings are vastly different, Yukari's relationship with her brother is quite different and elements of the {{Nasuverse}} intervene.

--> WordofGod says that: "For any references on what she looked like after Shirou was done accidentally making out with her, please refer to MahouSenseiNegima, the scene where Chachamaru [[spoiler:finally gets her pactio]]. Or whenever the cute little android girl is getting 'screwed', pun intended."

** Meta example: When asked about whether Takami would show up or not, gabriel blessing replied, "It's not like I'm planning anything silly, or potentially traumatizing for Shirou. Not at all." He also said that in case anyone had wondered about what Yasaka was up to, "I'd completely forgotten about him, and no, he will most certainly not be making an appearance later on with humorous results."

* HeroKiller: Although no one dies by [[spoiler:her]] hands [[spoiler:the Fraga magus is established as one by [[CurbStompBattle dispatching]] [[LadyOfWar Miya]] [[TheWorfEffect easily]]. The Fragarach attack she received would have normally terminate a Sekirei contract, had anyone else been hit, and if Shirou hadn't interfered at the last second Miya ''would'' have been killed. Hell, Shirou himself admits that in skill she greatly ''exceeds'' him and is well prepared for her attack; Shirou only won because she had no clue about his Sealing Designation and thus underestimates his abilities.]]
