* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Lupin flat out tells [[spoiler:Pycal]] that no, he wasn't one of his great enemies, he was just one of an endless succession of people seeking to make a name for himself at Lupin's expense. The Lupin gang barely spared a thought for him between occasions when they encountered him in the past, and wouldn't waste much time thinking about him once this confrontation was over, either.



* ForWantOfANail: Lupin's presence and actions turn ''Fate/Zero'' canon upside down. New alliances and rivalries arise, Servants are defeated in different order and in different manner, static characters like Saber and Archer get actual character development, and Kirei's character takes a turn for the better.
* FriendlyEnemy: Assassin and Zenigeta's relationship is this. Saber and Kirei are baffled by the concept.

** To protect Lupin from his father, Kirei claims that Lupin was acting on his orders in [[spoiler:killing Caster]]. He is also surprised that [[spoiler:he felt joy when he thought about sinners being punished for their crimes]]. At the climax, he reflects on how different he is from the man he was before meeting Assassin, including the fact that he has just saved someone's life when even a few days earlier he would have left them to die. (It's purely a self-serving gesture; his interests are what have changed.)

As he looks over the burnt out wreckage from [[spoiler:the Grail setting fire to Ryuudo Temple, the forest surrounding it, and a quarter of the city]], he muses that the old him would have derived sick pleasure from seeing it, but now he's into finer things.
