* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Like the original visual novel, Zero suffers greatly from this in the image of the servants. For example, the real Alexander of Macedon almost directly corresponded to the type {{bishounen}} and in accordance with the concept of Greek beauty could not have so hypertrophied muscles. In addition, the original Gilgamesh though he was a fictional hero of the folk epic, he was hardly a tall man of European appearance, and even more so, wearing a full knight armor of the late Middle Ages.

** Then there's the birth of Illyasviel. Irisviel says to Kiritsugu that "she has [his] eyes". Anyone who has played/seen Fate/stay night, Unlimited Blade Works and/or Heaven's Feel know that Illyasviel is the spitting image of her mother, so this scene brought out more than a few chuckles.

* CompleteMonster: [[AxCrazy Ryuunosuke Uryuu]] is the master of the equally {{sadist}}ic and twisted Caster Gilles de Rais. Initially a SerialKiller who targeted women, children, and whole families, Ryunosuke opted to read a magic spell on a whim which led to him summoning the fiendish Caster who began to help his master learn how to really hurt others. Ryunosuke would capture children for himself and Caster to kill together and help his servant torture others. Ryunosuke found nothing so amazing as watching Caster kill others in inventive ways. While Caster once cared about Jeanne D'Arc, Ryunosuke's only interest was seeing [[CardCarryingVillain how much depravity he could get away with]]. He even spent his last moments of life admiring his own blood and marveling how beautiful it was.

Ryunosuke found nothing so amazing as watching Caster kill others in inventive ways. While Caster once cared even more innocents. Despite [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike forming a bond with Caster]], this is simply a reflection of Ryuunosuke's own murderous traits rather than any genuine care, which he loudly states on using it to cause death on a grand scale, while he won't have to worry about Jeanne D'Arc, Ryunosuke's only interest was seeing dirtying his own hand.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: ''Fate/Zero'' remains the favorite Nasuverse work of many a western fan. In Japan, however, the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' anime beat ''F/Z'' [[https://myanimelist.net/news/50582644 in a poll conducted by the NHK]]. Downplayed in that both works are very popular in both regions.

** There had been several inevitable jokes on message boards about Saber and the Black Knight involving Monty Python. [[spoiler: It's revealed that the servant Black Knight's true identity is Lancelot. In ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'', John Cleese played both Lancelot AND the Black Knight.]]

* GameBreaker: Gilgamesh. He's canonically the strongest possible Servant and Tokiomi had every reason to believe he had instantly won the War by summoning him. He has stats comparable to Saber or Berserker (without Mad Enhancement), he is just as strong as either of them, with them only out-ranking them in the agility by a single rank, and 2 Noble Phantasms that can only be described as blatantly overpowered. Gate of Babylon gives him access to any Noble Phantasm with a physical form (except Excalibur and Avalon) and Ea is capable of [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroying the entire world at worst,]] [[BeamOWar and overpowering Excalibur at best]]. If his {{Pride}} didn't hold him back from fighting at full power, he could've ended the War in a matter of hours after its beginning.
