** While this is less of a blatant one than the previous one, maybe you should give Zest Grangeitz a look. Now imagine what happens when you give '''[[{{Badass}} Sanger Zonvolt, The Sword That Smites Evil!]]''' brown hair... see what I mean?

* Vice Granscenic is a FriendlySniper whose [[MyGreatestFailure greatest failure]] was [[spoiler: accidentally shooting her little sister with his rifle]] and as a result, he couldn't shoot a gun anymore. [[spoiler: He gets his touch back for the final battle, however.]] This Troper can't help but compare this character to Al Powell from ''Franchise/DieHard'' who accidentally shot a kid with a plastic gun but eventually got his skills back when he kills TheDragon in the first film.

* Thoma makes a "contract" with a mysterious girl being held captive. His left eye starts bleeding, then he transforms into a being called "The Black Knight" and casts a spell called "Divide Zero". ''CodeGeass'' anyone?

Added DiffLines:

** Ever since her debut, Vita, in addition of her own ShoutOut to Anime/GaoGaiGar, also carries on aspects of [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Alt Eisen Riese]], starting from being able to launch multiple steel balls like the Avalanche Claymore, or using her device in a similar manner to the Revolving Stake/Bunker.

** In ''[=StrikerS=]'', Signum is often accompanied by a red-headed nun with [[BlowYouAway wind-based magic]] and a similar fighting style to Axel Almer. Lamia and Axel both debuted in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance'', where they were rivals. It gets more hilarious that when Axel gets into the spinoff game ''EndlessFrontier'', he fights on foot... with that red-headed nun's weapon - a bladed tonfa, and the ability to create tornadoes.

* Vita's hammer can take on a form that is a reference to ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'' and another which references ''GurrenLagann'' with a drill on the front. ''TTGL'' aired in the same season as ''[=StrikerS=]'' and the hammer is voiced by the same Japanese VA as Simon. Appropriately, that season showed Vita to be a {{Determinator}} like everyone's favorite HotBlooded ''GurrenLagann'' protagonists.
** Ginga's "Revolver Gimlet" attack also resembles ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', to the point that fans have dubbed it the "[[FanNickname Ginga Drill Breaker]]".

* The Numbers's outfits suspiciously resemble plugsuits from Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion, right down to the wristcuffs, shoulder armor things, and hair ornaments.

* The plot arc of the first three series is broadly similar to that of the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' series ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'', with the blond nemesis doing a HeelFaceTurn and appearing as an ally in the second series, and a long TimeSkip between the penultimate series and the third installment, during which the protagonists grow up (''CharsCounterattack''). The main difference is that Fate, unlike Char, does not undergo a later FaceHeelTurn.
