* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: A relatively minor concerning Berserker's (AKA [[spoiler:Sir Lancelot]]) motivations. Since the anime skips over the story of [[spoiler:Lancelot and Guinevere's affair, and how it led to the fall of Arturia's kingdom]], the reason for Berserker's seemingly murderous obsession with Saber is left a little unclear.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: A relatively minor concerning Berserker's (AKA [[spoiler:Sir Lancelot]]) Lancelot's]]) motivations. Since While the anime skips over anime, like the story of light novels, eventually reveals that [[spoiler:Lancelot was essentially trying to commit SuicideByCop by obsessively targeting Saber as Berserker, it skips the story of Lancelot and Guinevere's affair, affair in the [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fate universe]], and how it led to the fall of Arturia's kingdom]], kingdom]]. As a result, the reason for Berserker's seemingly murderous obsession with Saber behind [[spoiler:Lancelot's guilt complex]] is left a little unclear.

Added DiffLines:

** The anime also expands on the flashbacks to Kiritsugu's past, particularly Shirley's relationships with both preteen Kiritsugu and his father.

* ShoutOut:
** The "Einzbern Consultation Room" specials from the DVD are basically a huge ShoutOut to the [[HaveANiceDeath Tiger Dojo corners]] from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', complete with role reversal with Irisviel as the "teacher" and a teenage amnesiac Taiga as the "student". The segments contain a few other [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]]:
*** "There are ''LightNovel/{{DDD}}'' circumstances behind that, so I'm sorry."
*** [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Alba]]'s silhouette can be seen when Iri talks about mages in the {{Franchise/Nasuverse}}. His [[spoiler: [[TheCameo brief appearance at Alimango Island]] as a magus sent to torch the area mentioned above also counts]].
*** Some of the explanations about the world and Holy Grail War are set to ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''-style illustrations.
** Caster's vision of [[UsefulNotes/JoanOfArc Jeanne D'Arc]] is the exact same design from ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha''.
** Caster's invocation to summon an EldritchAbomination in episode 2 is "[[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Cthulhu fhtagn]]", he's referred to as a [[Literature/TheShadowOverInnsmouth Deep One]] in the "Einzbern Consultation Room" specials, and his Noble Phantasm, [[TomeOfEldritchLore Prelati's Spellbook: Text of the Sunken Spiraled City]], is implied to be a copy of the Necronomicon itself since it's made from human skin, has a screaming face on the cover, and is also known as the R'lyeh Text.
** Natalia smokes the same extremely rare brand of cigarettes that [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Touko]] does.
** ''Fate/Zero Materials'' notes that, after the war, Kayneth's Volumen Hydragyrum was tweaked a bit [[spoiler:by Waver]] so it could assume the role of a household servant. The only problem is, thanks to being exposed to [[Film/TheTerminator a certain film]], it occasionally goes berserk while insisting it's a killer robot from the future.
** In Episode 14, the two F-15J pilots flying in to investigate Caster's monster trade some banter on how [[GenreSavvy if they were in a kaiju movie, they'd be dead.]] One of them remarks that they would just [[RedShirtArmy be there to die]] before the [[Franchise/UltraSeries "Giant of Light"]] shows up to kill it.
** Some of [[http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/Gate_of_Babylon?file=Gobweapons.png the weapons]] in Gate of Babylon are identical to ornamental pieces sold by [[http://www.kitrae.net/fantasy/ Kit Rae]] and [[http://www.unitedcutlery.com/Category.aspx?cat=SM United Cutlery]]. This fits somewhat, since they're all ''supposed'' to be {{Impossibly Cool Weapon}}s.

* CryLaughing: [[spoiler:Once Kotomine sees that the burning of Fuyuki City and [[ManOnFire three hundred of its inhabitants]] is his most practical and truest desire, as realized by the Grail, he laughs; then, he laughs harder; then, he cries as he laughs. The contradiction entertains him so thoroughly that he resolves to repeat his participation in the next Grail War, so as to see what else he's hiding beneath his head.]]

* SaveTheWorld: This is Kiritsugu's wish, and aptly so. He takes practical measures to win the Grail War so that he might request that it be done[[spoiler:, but, once he wins, the Grail explains that a wish is not a command, as Kiritsugu must use a method he knows will grant what he desires. Once it suggests they use Kiritsugu's methodology in life to realize his dream, Kiritsugu rejects it]].

* CradlingYourKill: This is Kiritsugu's method of killing women.[[spoiler: Before he destroys the plane Natalia is flying, he lets her divulge what she feels about him, her current state, and her hopes for the future via radio; under his orders, Maiya waits until Sola-Ui sits on Kayneth's lap before she shoots both of them through the back, and she kills her instantly; finally, within the Grail, after deciding to kill the apparition of Illya, he caresses her head, tells her he'll never pick buds with her again, and says goodbye before he shoots her through her chin and brain, and, after the apparition of Irisviel protests, he grabs her by the throat but allows her to protest and curse him before he snaps her neck.]]
