* As terrifying (and somehow oddly funny) it would be to see Herakles being Assassin instead of Berserker, it actually makes sense he would be compatible with that class, as many of his twelve labors were effectively assassination-missions with the targets being various monsters.

\n* After learning what you do in Heaven's Feel, [[spoiler: Sakura]]'s fate in the previous two routes becomes downright depressing. As there is no indication in those routes that anything is even wrong, it can be assumed that nothing is done about it after the ends of those routes.

* Archer's arrival [[spoiler:at the end of UBW seems to be very unlikely considering the circumstances.]] However, when one proposes that Gilgamesh's attack actually ''did'' [[spoiler:kill Archer, his return for the finale can be explained by his Guardian nature. His interference in the Grail War caused a new anomaly that had to be fixed, and so he was immediately sent to fix it.]]
** This one is actually probably better explained from extra materials. While the Unlimited Blade Works route often mentions [[spoiler: Guardians, Servants of the Counter Force that restore the balance and protect mankind of annihilation]] it neglects some of the specific details that led to Archer's...issues. Namely that there are multiple levels of "interference" and Archer [[spoiler: as a Guardian is merely the last line of defense and only summoned after a situation is behind hope to clean up...which means he is ordered to kill everyone in the target area, guilt or innocence be damned and has no free will to resist the order]]. However, before everything completely goes to Hell, the World can tweak things to subtly influence the course of events instead. It's more likely that [[spoiler: Alaya simply gave Archer an extra dose of mana so he could stick around and thwart Gilgamesh to prevent summoning a Guardian - which would kill everyone in Fuyuki - from becoming necessary]].

* Why did Shirou manage to beat Archer? Why Archer's own skills of course. Archer's entire style is about beating people tougher, faster and out right better the he his, which Shirou stole and used against him.

* The Fate route deals with Saber's regrets regarding her kingship - she believes she should never have drawn Caliburn and become king. One of the turning points in the route occurs when Shirou projects Caliburn for her - reiterating her claim to the throne.

** This is expanded even further when you realize that Archer's special ability [[spoiler: Unlimited Blade Works and Tracing, his unique form of projection magic]] is actually based entirely on the same principles as Kyudo, the ancient Japanese art of archery. In the Fate route, Archer gives Shirou advice which initially sounds like him condescendingly reminding Shirou of the eight steps of firing, which is Kyudo 101. In actuality, [[spoiler: it's the hint Shirou needs to realize how to use his projection magic properly]]. The archery club scene in Unlimited Blade Works makes this even more blatant as we can see the steps to fire an arrow [[spoiler: mirror the steps Shirou used to project Caliburn toward the end of Fate]]. The parallel is completed later in UBW when [[spoiler: Shirou's projected swords repeatedly break because he doesn't have to calm, nothingness/void state of mind that was stated was needed for archery, where the result is predetermined in one's mind and success is guaranteed before one even begins.]] Archer's skill, Eye of the Mind (True) is a reflection of his mastery of this, where his NervesOfSteel enable him to focus his mind only on his objectives and see the best way to reach it, formulating and "firing" even complex tactics as easily as he fires his arrows.

* Toward the beginning of the story, Sakura is noted to a have a peculiar bruise on the back of her hand, and when Shirou questions Shinji on it, he says he had nothing to do with it. [[spoiler: He's telling the truth; that bruise was the beginnings of Sakura's Command Seal. As it disappeared not long after, she must have summoned Rider and handed her off to Shinji very shortly thereafter.]]
