Added DiffLines:

* GreyAndWhiteMorality: With the exception of Shakespeare and Solomon, literally every "villainous" character is either sympathetic or a WellIntentionedExtremist. Even Vlad the Impaler is portrayed in a sympathetic manner.


Added DiffLines:

* ThoseTwoGuys: Red Rider and Red Archer are rarely seen apart from each other, partially because they are from the same time period/region, and partially because they don't trust Shirou and Red Assassin.

* ForWantOfANail: The event that separates this universe from the ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' universe is [[spoiler: the Einzberns summoning a Ruler Servant instead of Avenger in the Third Holy Grail War.]]

* AllThereInTheManual: A lot of the information about the Servants will come from the Fate/Complete Material IV guidebook rather than the actual novel.

* WorthyOpponent: After their first encounter, Red Lancer (Karna) and Black Saber (Siegfried) consider each other as this. They hope to a have a rematch in the future, [[spoiler: which is rather tragic as Siegfried would later go on to perform a HeroicSacrifice and thus miss any opportunity to battle Karna again.]]

* HalfwayPlotSwitch: At first, the story seems set for a great struggle between Yggdmillenia and the Magus Association. [[spoiler:By the end of Volume 2 and essentially confirmed in Volume 3, the true struggle is in fact between the Servants who have sided with either of the two Ruler-class Servants, Jeanne d'Arc and Shirou Kotomine]].

The story takes place in an AlternateTimeline where the Grail System was stolen and rebuilt in Turifas, Transylvania. This Holy Grail War is fundamentally different from the Fuyuki original as seen in ''[[LightNovel/FateZero Fate/zero]]'' and ''[[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fate/stay night]]''. For one, there are now fourteen Servants summoned by the Grail on two teams, Red and Black, with seven Servants each. The war is now also being presided over by a Servant, [[UsefulNotes/JoanOfArc Jeanne d'Arc]], a Ruler-class Servant. And finally, each Master seems to need their own vessel to summon the Holy Grail.

** And the original summon catalyst for the usual ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and ''LightNovel/FateZero'' have been lost since once the information of the war spread they were stolen and passed around until no one knew where they were.

** It does, Gordes arrogantly assumes that Siegfried is merely a tool at his disposal, and this arrogance causes him to [[spoiler: not only waste ''two'' command spells and nearly expose Siegfried's Noble Phantasm so early in the war, but it causes Siegfried to act on his own to save the Homunculus's life at the cost of his own.]]

* BloodKnight: A lot of heroes happen to enjoy fighting, which is partly why they are so good at it. Of note are the two NighInvulnerable Servants, Rider of Red and Saber of Black, who get excited when fighting someone who can injure them due to being bored of never being in danger.



** Rider of Red wipes the floor with Berserker and Saber of Black, since they can't even actually hurt him.
* DramaPreservingHandicap: Caster of Red can OneHitKO anyone who's parameters are lower than his, which would a lot more useful if his parameters weren't abysmal.



* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Let's see... We have 14 Masters, 15 Servants, several named characters at the Magus Association, and the Homunculus that the Yggdmillenia keeps. This is all only within the first book, mind you.

[[spoiler: Getting the number of characters down to a manageable number is a likely out-of-universe reason for Shirou Kotomine's plot to brainwash the other Red masters into handing over their Servants.]]
* LogicalWeakness: As Archer of Black lampshades, no matter the measures a Servant takes, it's pretty much impossible to hide your true identity from someone who knew you in life.

* PoorCommunicationKills: Gordes ordered Siegfried to never speak, to conceal his identity, and Siegfried nodded in agreement. Gordes saw the nod as "your will be done, master" while Siegfried meant it more as "sure, why not?". The narration notes that this misunderstanding is going to become a big factor in the future.
