** In addition there are numerous Holy Grail Wars fought over the world since the theft of the original grail, the only difference being that the Romania Leyline is better than most, allowing the summoning of 14 Servants rather than less than 7, and capable of reaching the Root.
** And the original summon catalysts 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.

** In addition addition, there are have been numerous Holy Grail Wars fought all over the world since the theft of the original grail, the only grail. The main difference being is that the Romania Leyline is better than most, allowing the summoning of 14 fourteen Servants rather than less than 7, ''less than'' seven (a number of these supplementary Grail Wars apparently don't even boast a normal complement) and is capable of reaching the Root.

The Servants of ''Apocrypha'' can seem a little "second-string" because that's the ''point'' - they're easier to summon with broad catalysts (like Mordred) or are a bit obscure and all their relics haven't been plundered yet.

* OhCrap: Archer of Black and Fiore have a subdued one when they realize that they can't remember anything about their encounter with Assassin of Black due to one of their skills, meaning that, aside from knowing that their True Name is Jack the Ripper, they know absolutely nothing about them.

* {{Badass}}: [[WorldOfBadass Essentially everyone]], really. However, a few Servants are noted within the story to be particularly stronger than the rest:
** Red Lancer is one of the two Servants within the Red Faction that Shirou Kotomine considers above the rest. And it's not hard to see why, really. Being covered by an [[ArmorOfInvincibility armour of invincibility]], having an [[PersonOfMassDestruction Anti-Army and Anti-Country Noble Phantasm that can never miss]], and having access to what could be the [[StoryBreakerPower strongest Noble Phantasm in the franchise]], Vasavi Shakti. In addition, he is physically incapable of being fooled or deceived.
** Red Rider is the other of the two Servants that Shirou Kotomine considers above the rest. Although not much is known about him, his parameters are above the standard, and he has an [[StoryBreakerPower extremely broken ability]] that makes him effectively immune to any Servant that does not possess a Divine attribute. In theory, if not for the presence of Chiron, he could [[OneManArmy literally defeat the entire Black Faction on his own.]]
** Black Lancer is considered the strongest Servant in the Black Faction, having received a massive power boost due to the fact that the Holy Grail War is taking place at where his legend originated from. He is also capable of adding another layer of [[HomeFieldAdvantage Home Field Advantage]] through the Demonic Defender of the State, boosting his parameters [[UpToEleven even further.]] As if those two power boosts weren't enough, he even has the ability to [[SuperpoweredEvilSide change his form into a vampire]], boosting his already high parameters to truly absurd heights.
** Black Saber is considered to be the second strongest Servant in the Black Faction, being a renowned warrior during his lifetime and having defeated a rather powerful dragon. He is [[NighInvulnerable completely immune to any form of attack that isn't of at least A-Rank power]], and even A-Rank strikes can end up as mere scratches on him. In addition, his Noble Phantasm Balmung is implied to be extremely powerful, as a [[spoiler: weakened version of it, used by the Homunculus, was able to nearly defeat Mordred's Clarent Blood Arthur.]]
** By the second volume, Shirou Kotomine firmly plants himself within this territory, both feat-wise and intellectually. [[spoiler: Despite Masters not being expected to have the strength or magical prowess to ever take on Servants, Shirou completely wiped the floor with Black Lancer and obliterated him. This was done through forcing Lancer off his HomeFieldAdvantage and exploiting Legend of Dracula's heightened weakness to holy symbols. It also later turns out that "Shirou Kotomine" is actually Amakusa Shiro Tokisada, the Ruler Servant of the third Holy Grail War.]]

** Saint Martha of ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' appears in Chapter 5 of the manga during an explanation of the Ruler class. She does have Ruler class version in the game, but the outfit she appears in is what she wears as Rider. Arjuna also makes a brief appearance in this chapter as Karna compares Siegfried to him.

* 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.
