* Why is Saber such a notorious BigEater? [[spoiler:she's King Arthur! she's probably used to eating at the head of large feasts, not modern-sized meals]]. Also, before Saber's reign as King Arthur, she spent her life as a squire. Squires aren't known for always having enough to eat; Saber appreciates good food probably because she remembers what it's like to be practically starving.

**This more likely have to do with his backstory. [[spoiler: He was constantly "mopping things up" after military conflicts. Understandably, world peace is the thing he desires most.]]

* When you learn Archer's identity, it seems strange that he's [[spoiler: 20cm taller than Shirou.]] But think back. [[spoiler: At the end of the 4th Holy Grail War, Kiritsugu implanted Avalon in Shirou's body, using up the final remnants of its healing powers to save him.]] What other effect did [[spoiler: Avalon]] have than healing? [[spoiler: Keeping its owner eternally young! It's possible that Shirou being healed by Avalon also made him age slower!]]

* 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.
