First person commentary on the main page is a no-no
* ForegoneConclusion: Somewhat. Halfway through the fic, it occurred to me that a [[spoiler:BittersweetEnding]] was not only the only ending that would make sense, but also the only "happy" ending.

-->'''Shirou''': I've decided that I shall slaughter the innocent. I shall murder all who stand in my way, sparing none, until my name is [[TheDreaded synonymous with fear itself]], thus cementing my status as an AntiHero. Then, once my reign of terror is finally ended, I shall wait patiently at the Throne of Heroes for however how long it takes until one of the infinite realities that exist that still performs the ritual of the Holy Grail War summons me forth. Then, I shall resume killing all around me until my bloodstained hands hold the Holy Grail itself. Once I have the all-powerful artifact, I shall use it to force the Root of the World, the wellspring of all creation, to assume a human male form in my presence. And then I'm going to [[GroinAttack kick it in the balls so hard that all of reality will simultaneously]] [[ShareTheMalePain feel it]]. ** This doubles as ToThePain too. In reminiscence of a certain speech from Tycho from PennyArcade. ** May become FridgeHorror when the comparison to [[spoiler:Lancelot]] is made. So, ''LightNovel/FateZero'''s [[TheBerserker Berserker]] has [[InstantExpert the power to take control of any weapon he lays his hands on]], and he's fixated on Saber...

Knight of Honor turns whatever Lancelot wields into a Noble Phantasm, but Eternal Arms Mastery makes him an Instant Expert in its use
** This makes his Gandalfr runes particularly [[GameBreaker Game Breaking]], as they give him complete knowledge of the use of any weapon he uses (the Gandalfr runes have some resemblance to [[spoiler:[[LightNovel/FateZero Lancelot]]'s [[InstantExpert Knight Of Honor]]]]). Combine that with Shirou's crazy-insane arsenal and you have someone who can effortlessly switch between bow to spear to sword to shield to axe to club to scythe-on-a-chain without slowing. Just thank god [[HyperspaceArsenal Gilgamesh]] didn't get summoned.

Memetic Sex God has been cut per TRS. All wicks will be deleted.
*** Of course, he was referring to Shirou's [[MemeticSexGod sexual exploits...]] [[spoiler:When revealing [[FieldOfBlades UBW]] on the other hand:]]

* ChickMagnet: Shirou, [[MemeticBadass of]] [[MemeticSexGod course]].of course. As Malicorne puts it:

* JustIgnoreIt: Shirou's ''modus operandi'' when it comes to his MemeticSexGod ChickMagnet status.

* MemeticSexGod: InUniverse example, Shirou again. Due to the dream cycle, Louise witnessed the, ah, "mana recharge session" he had with Rin and Saber. Due to her actions during the LovePotion incident, there is now a kinky rumor circulating about how he's "too much man for one woman to handle". Louise helps to spread it around whenever Shirou makes a crack about her knitting, but is having some difficulty keeping her mind away from "kinky threesomes".

* StabTheSalad: In chapter fifteen, Shirou, who has been wronged greatly by [[DeathSeeker being brought back from the brink of death]] brings an axe to bear. He starts swinging, with the one that healed him begging him to stop. It turns out, he's just chopping wood to vent his frustration.

It ends up becoming more serious than the original ''LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima''. The dynamic between Shirou and Louise is different from her original familiar and those who disliked the [[HaremGenre harem dynamics]] of ''Zero no Tsukaima'' will be glad to know that is all that has been cut out, except for the RuleOfFunny.
