** 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 Eternal Arms Mastery]]]]). 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.

* {{Badass}}: Shirou, obviously. Although, contrary to what the first few chapters indicate, he is ''not'' the biggest badass around. (Certainly in the top five, though.) [[spoiler:He found out that Karin of the ''Heavy Wind'' and Professor Colbert are among them.]]
** When compared to Saito, who had his moments, Shirou is a full-time Badass.
** Here's Guiche's take on this:
-->'''Guiche''': "Truly, you are the greatest of men. How did you put it before? Badass? Is there anything you do that is not badass?"
-->'''Guiche''': [[spoiler:[[HeroicBSOD "I picked a fight with him. I can't believe I picked a fight with him. What was I thinking, picking a fight with him?]] [[FunnyMoment It must be my mother's fault. She must have dropped me on my head when I was a child…"]]]]



* MassOhCrap: When [[LadyOfWar Louise's mother]] [[{{Badass}} Karin]] challenges Shirou to a trial by combat in chapter 13, everyone within earshot has a brief panic attack.

* MythologyGag: Shirou's references to, for instance, 'Tohsaka Rin Lecture Position #1', which are reminiscent of the specific few character drawings that appear in the visual novel.

**Chapter 16:
-->"Worked out," she ground out. "Worked out, he says. He twists the entire thing about in whatever way he wants, and then when it's all done he tells me that he was making it up on the spot. All works out, he says..."
-->I rolled my eyes. "Stop being so melodramatic. Imagine how it would have turned out if you had summoned someone who didn't have the convenient Master/Servant model to base their actions off of. [[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero What would it have been like if you just summoned someone who had no experience at all with this kind of thing as a Servant?]] How well do you think they would have reacted to some of the earlier scenes we found ourselves in?"
-->Louise's grimace widened a bit, but her fist gradually stopped shaking. Finally, she let her hand fall back to her side with a sigh. "You know what?" she admitted sounding tired. "You're probably right." She opened her eyes as she rubbed the back of her head awkwardly with her wand. "Towards the beginning there I might have acted a little over the top as a Master."

* ArmorPiercingResponse: When Henrietta brings up that there hasn't been a Void user in centuries, Shirou suggests that because so little is known about Void magic, there might have been several even hundreds of Void users who were mistaken for failures and never learned to utilize their magic.
