* WartsAndAll: Much like his other fic, ''Fanfic/ADifferentKindOfTruth'', TIM does this to his main protagonist. Assassin is depicted as a nice guy who's generally goofy, but he's also a skilled manipulator and semi-sadistic thrill-seeker. Waver Velvet even says that Assassin might as well be an "ingenious yet hedonistic maniac". Which is a far cry from the LighterAndSofter anime Lupin most people remember, and more in line with the DarkerAndEdgier original manga Lupin

His [[spoiler: shooting of Irisviel]] was done to get access to [[spoiler: the Grail]]. And while it can be argued that he did it out of mercy, it's also hinted that [[spoiler: Irisviel being in pain simply made the action easier]].
** Saber, despite being oftentimes TheStoic and placing HonorBeforeReason, is secretly riddled with guilt and self-loathing in regards to the destruction of her kingdom. It's also stated that while she doesn't like fighting dirty, [[CombatPragmatist it does not mean she doesn't know how]].
