* ThinkingUpPortals: Kakolethros displays the ability to seemingly teleport using shadows. It's revealed that he's actually using a power similar to the Descorrer used by the hollows and arrancar to quickly open a door to the Dangai and then exit out another.

* OutsideContextProblem: Ichigo and his friends are this to everyone else in the Grail War. They're capable of matching Servants in combat, their skills are bizarre by magus standards, and their morality doesn't even line up with most magi. Add it all together, and you have a group that is frighteningly incomprehensible to the Stay/Night cast. On the other side of the coin, the magi and Heroic Spirits are this to Ichigo's crew, being unlike anything they've fought before. Though, they do have Rider to explain the basics behind their new enemies, so they end up adapting far quicker than everyone else.

* EldritchAbomination: Caster [[spoiler:fuses one of her Dragon Tooth skeleton familiars with a captured Hollow and]] creates a creature that, according to Assassin, is an aberration against nature.
* EnemyMine: Sort of. After Hollows start showing up in Fuyuki City ''en masse'', the Masters and Servants shift their focus from fighting each other to dealing with the infestation. Gilgamesh is not pleased by this, though it doesn't stop him from killing a few Hollows himself every now and then. However, no alliances are officially made, and several Servants and Masters still find the time to fight each other.

* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Thanks to Caster's experiments on the Hollows, [[spoiler: she gives Assassin a Hollow mask much like the Vizards wear. It helps him overpower Saber completely and upgrades his signature move Tsubame Gaeshi by throwing the same strikes in either reverse or another angle. The mask also puts a great toll on Assassin, something he is wary of... and something that Caster is too excited to care about.]]

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Ichigo's group vs. All the magi who aren't Shirou and all the Heroic Spirits. Soul reapers are trying to maintain the balance of souls between the worlds and keep casualties to a minimum. The other participants in the Holy Grail War, excluding Shirou, are there to get the Holy Grail by whatever means and keep anyone from finding out. Their morals aren't just different, they're flat-out incompatible.
* BreathWeapon: Kakolethros' Μηδέν (pronounced Midén, Greek for "Zero"). While it bears a resemblance to the Cero used by Menos-class Hollows, it's outright stated that it doesn't pack anywhere near as much of a punch due to Kakolethros' origins. Despite this, the technique is acknowledged as being a serious threat to a normal human or a magus.

* MomentKiller: The tender moment between Ichigo and Rider after [[spoiler: he rescues her from Saber]] is interrupted by the arrival of Uryu. The Quincy gets an intense DeathGlare from Rider for his horrible timing.
* MoralityKitchenSink: Ichigo's group is full of undeniably good, and Rider is ALighterShadeOfGrey at her worst. Shirou is just as kind as the nicest of that group, but also rather naive, and his group is largely more morally complex: Rin is pragmatic but kinder in nature, Saber is just but ruthless by necessity, and Archer is helpful but manipulative. Caster is wholly self-serving, with everyone on her side unquestionably loyal save Assassin - who mostly just wants a WorthyOpponent but is also a NobleTopEnforcer with a strong sense of honour. Soul Society are mostly concerned with keeping the balance of souls intact and thus want to limit the damage the War will cause, but would be willing to make sacrifices if it comes to it. Kotomine and Gligamesh are allies of convenience with similar goals who care little for the damage caused so long as their goals can be met; meanwhile, Zouken is only concerned about attaining immortality and will do anything, including manipulating his family and killing countless people, to achieve that.

Ichigo and his TrueCompanions are acting all mysterious and interrogative, with ominous questions being thrown out. ("Why do you want the Grail?")

* DoppelgangerSpin: Discussed when Rider sees Ichigo's memories of his battle with Byakuya where Ichigo did this. Rider says she's probably fast enough to create afterimages too, but she considers the technique a waste of time. If you are fast enough to run circles around an opponent, [[CombatPragmatist you should have already killed them]].

She becomes extremely devoted to him to the point that she makes it clear in her internal monologues that she will do ''anything'' to keep him safe because she thinks that his Honor Before Reason tendencies will get him killed, to the point that she will sometimes slip into being a Psycho Supporter--best shown when she almost kills [[spoiler:Renji and Hanataro]] because she misheard a joke.
