* {{Flynning}}: When Kiritsugu attacks Kotomine with his knife, he keeps slashing but failing to hit as Kotomine blocks him with just one arm. This cool but not realistic, since if Kiritsugu were close enough to actually hit Kotomine with that short blade, they wouldn't be connecting like that at arms' length.



* InfantImmortality: Averted because of Caster and Ryunosuke, who are serial child-murderers.
* InfoDump: Occasionally the audience is treated to large chunks of explanation in one sitting so that they'll understand what's going on. For example, episode 1 of the anime is extra long in order to accommodate all the discussion of the rules of magic and of the Holy Grail War.

** Tokiomi vs. Kariya is ''very'' one-sided. One is a man who has spent a lifetime learning to master his craft. The other is a runaway who is relying on ad-hoc magecraft implanted in him by his sadistic ancestor and who is too berserk with pain and rage to use even that properly. Guess which one wins without having to hardly lift a finger.

* DepletedPhlebotinumShells: Kiritsugu's Origin Bullets contain ''his own'' powdered ribs, which he uses sparingly with his Contender. Because each bullet contains Kiritsugu's origin of severing and binding, a bullet used on a magus will irreparably ruin their magic circuits. Most targets are permanently crippled or killed by what this does to their body.

** The anime works hard to avert this, like soft blurring or making clever use of camera focus on the most questionable scenes, but there are some things that just couldn't be shown in great detail, Uryuu and Caster's moments with their victims are the most notable examples, the most sickening lines in the novels did not make its way to the anime.
