* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:Ahriman can possess people, giving him access to their skills and memories. This process kills the victim unless he chooses not to, like when he possesses Illya.]]



* NothingPersonal: Odysseus has nothing against Shirou, it's just that he believes killing him is the key to unlocking the ability to travel to other worlds.



* WhamEpisode: Chapter 36. [[spoiler:After it is revealed the King of the End does not ''want'' to be revived, Guinevere and Lancelot transfer their loyalty to Shirou completely. Shirou suddenly realizes that Excalibur, Arondight, and Avalon have somehow disappeared from Unlimited Blade Works, meaning he can no longer use them. Mordred is resurrected as a woman, but more powerful than ever and hellbent on revenge.]]

** Chapter 36 - Shadows at a Festival. [[spoiler:Ahriman, Odysseus, and Circle capture Illya, then Ahriman uses her as a host body, confident that since Shirou would never harm her, their victory is assured.

* WorldsMostBeautifulWoman: In Shirou's opinion, Rider is this for his original world and Tiamat is this for the Campione world.

to:

* WorldsMostBeautifulWoman: In Shirou's opinion, Rider is this for his original world and Tiamat is this for the Campione world. Later, Godou comments to himself that Tiamat is even more beautiful than Venus because Venus is a girl, while Tiamat is a ''woman''.

* DoppelgangerReplacementLoveInterest: Discussed. Rin mentions Zeltretch warned his students about the dangers of meeting alternate versions of your loved ones. When Sakura says she wants to learn the Second Magic to be able to travel to other worlds, Rin warns her that alternate versions of Shirou are ''not'' him, just people who share his face. Sakura then corrects her and explains that she's figured out their Shirou is in another world.

* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Back in the Fate/Stay Night universe, several members of the Mage Association want to kill Rin as a scapegoat for the events of the Fifth Holy Grail War and capture Sakura as a research specimen due to her unique powers. They back off because Rin is protected by Zeltretch and Sakura is protected by Rider, and trying to fight either of those two is suicide, even with an army of mages. However, they then start plotting ways to circumvent that protection.

* RedBaron: Guinevere eventually names Shirou "King of Steel" (she wanted to call him "King of Swords" but Salvatore Doni already has that title).

* RedBaron: Guinevere eventually names Shirou "King of Steel" (she wanted to call him "King of Swords" but Salvatore Doni already has that title). Some also call him "King Shrouded in Mystery" since his past is unknown, "All Wealthy" for his Rule of the Underworld making him very rich, "Host of the Divine" for taking in Guinevere, Tiamat, and Lancelot, and "Impossible Mage" for his amazing abilities. His critics call him "Heartless King" for killing Venus the Goddess of Love, and "Sir Shirou the Weak" and "Traitor King" for refusing to kill Tiamat and Lancelot and instead offering them shelter.

** Since Shirou has the Authority Curses Without End, [[spoiler:Ahriman thinks that Shirou has somehow stolen some of his power and wants revenge. Ahriman is unaware Shirou got it from killing his Nasuverse counterpart Angra Mainyu.]]



* WrongContextMagic: Shirou and Illya's magical abilities baffle the other characters. In Campione, all magic is performed by invoking the power of magical beings like gods, angels, or fairies, but the two still run on Nasuverse rules and only need to use the prana in their bodies to perform magic.
** [[spoiler:Unlimited Blade Works and the Noble Phantasms within also count. They can match and even exceed the power of Authorities, something mortal magic is supposed to be incapable of]].

* FishOutOfTemporalWater: [[spoiler:Lancelot is significantly out of touch with modern customs]].

* MoreThanMindControl: [[spoiler:Venus '''attempts''' this with Arrows of Eros on Shirou, and then with Heart's Thief. In the end, she isn't ''entirely'' successful, and is left with her Authorities fully tapped, and a [[MindControl brainwashed]] Shirou under her control. WordOfGod is Shirou is effectively under a variation of Mad Enhancement like Heracles was.]]

* GrewBeyondTheirProgramming: Snow, the Pegasus Shirou gets from Perseus, becomes more alive after Shirou names him, becoming more than just a part of Shirou's power. [[spoiler:He even defends his master against Mordred without being ordered to]].

* AuraVision: Manaka can see "Aura Signs" above the heads of others, which take the forms of symbols that represent the personality traits of the ones they belong to.



* BeyondTheImpossible:
** [[spoiler:Unlimited Blade Works (and to some degree, the Noble Phantasms within) is a magic of mortal origin, but is on the level of an Authority itself, if not even more powerful. Luo Hao gets briefly thrown off guard by this when fighting the Venus controlled Shirou, but gets past it when she remembers that Campione all do that when they kill a god, so it's not that surprising that Shirou can do something like that]].
** [[spoiler:Odysseus gazing into the unstable Kaleidoscope portal turns him into a MadGod, something Circe didn't think was possible]].



** Chapter 36 has a massive one for [[spoiler: Alexander Gascoigne, who goes from nearly killing Guinevere to being pummeled massively and suffering constant threat of drowning, forcing him to swear to never even try going against Guinevere ever again or else Shirou will hunt him and never stop until he's dead.]]

Afterwards, he's developed an almost phonic fear of Shirou and can barely take a shower without having a FreakOut.]]



* BullyingADragon: [[spoiler:Alex steals the Gem Sword and attacks Guinevere. As many in and out of universe anticipated, it ended badly for him]].



** Alex thinks that UBW is a divine magic Shirou is masquerading as a mortal one.



* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler:Mordred]] is one for Shirou. Both are considered fakers who can fight against the originals and possibly win. Both invoke themselves into steel. Also, [[spoiler:Mordred's line against Guinevere resembles that of Shirou's when he faces Gilgamesh in the UBW route.]]

Also, [[spoiler:Mordred's line against Guinevere about how it's possible for an imitation to surpass the original resembles that of Shirou's when he faces Gilgamesh in the UBW route.]]



* EveryoneHasStandards: [[spoiler:Even when she's engulfed in the rush of her returned powers, Tiamat doesn't feel right crushing the wounded Campione and companions after the battle with Venus, and decides to spare them so they can have a fair fight in the future. Too bad Jord thought otherwise..]].



* LemonyNarrator: Occasionally, like when it lampshades Godou's CluelessChickMagnet status.



* MistakenIdentity: Perseus senses Angra Mainyu's Authority in Shirou and thinks he's the evil God himself, only realizing the truth too late.



* MoreThanMindControl:
** Shirou's [[RescueRomance Hero's Bride]] Authority makes him more attractive to women he saves (Illya is magically aware enough to notice it, and her magic resistance is high enough to counter it) but besides that and bolstering their health and the like, they're mentally unaffected.
** Venus's plan was to do this to Shirou, replacing his love for other things with love for herself, but it doesn't quite work out as she planned.



* MythologyGag: When Shirou's watchers from the History Compilation Committee appear in their maid uniforms, Illya's newly discovered [[Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya maid switch]] is triggered.

** Even for all that Alex sees himself as the intellectually superior individual for some reason he always dismiss the absolutelly sound advice of other people telling him to [[spoiler: return the Gem Sword to Shirou]], not even when John Pluto Smith tell him that's a really bad idea.
