* Chapter 16:
** Rin's BlastingItOutOfTheirHands on Louvre with PreAssKickingOneLiner
--> ''"Get off my property." Rin growled as she pulled the trigger.''
** Shirou's screwing Louvre's circuits with [[SoulCuttingBlade Kiritsugu]] and then the StormOfBlades using Louvre's own arsenal against him until the point of nearly ending him, a DAA. Plus, his BadassCreed is...well {{BadAss}}.
--> ''My body is made of blades...Fire is my blood… and Glass is my heart...Through countless battles I forever wait, alone on the hill of blades…… For Hell's hands to bear…… For Heaven's hands to temper…''
* Chapter 17:
** Shirou was so Badass in the last chapter [[spoiler: that he gets offered the 10th DAA seat and a scholarship to the Association.]]
*** Made even more Awesome if you consider who made these offers. [[spoiler: Namely Merem Solomon(20th Dead Apostle Ancestor) and Lorelei Barthomeloi(The Queen of Clocktower). ]]
* Chapter 22:
** Shirou manages to [[spoiler: survive an encounter with Berserker all on his own.]]
*** Also, Shirou [[spoiler: used a barrier of swords that had no concept of time and thus couldn't change or break, yet Berserker managed to ''[[BeyondTheImpossible shatter the swords that are impossible to break by hitting them with his club!]]'' Berserker can change reality by hitting it!]]
** Waver managed to get [[spoiler: Gilgamesh]] to spare him, in spite of obvious death threats. Yep, and he stared at his face and lived to tell the tale. [[{{Understatement}} It takes balls.]]
*** Considering the fact that this [[spoiler: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEWzge4fwQ4 is not the first time he did this]]. [[{{Staring Down Cthulhu}} Adamantium Balls]]]].
* Chapter 25:
** Sakura [[spoiler: holds her own against Marjatta.]]
* Chapter 26:
** Merem and Berserker reminds everyone why the "[[{{Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny}} Servant vs Dead Apostle Ancestor]]" debate exists. [[spoiler: Berserker loses five lives in the fight and injures Merem's [[{{Eldritch Abomination}} right leg.]] ]]
* Chapter 27:
** Bazett and Lancer attack Ryudo temple, and are utterly humiliated by Assassin. Witch!Medea's description shows how magnificent he had been:
-->''Lancer, who had by himself managed to put up a good fight against both versions of Medea of Colchis at the same time and had only retreated due to being overwhelmed by her counterpart's Bulls of Aeaea, had been defeated in five seconds.''
-->''Five.''
-->''Bloody.''
-->''' ''Seconds.''' ''
-->''Before she had even realized what was going on, having been preoccupied with her research inside the mountain, her Servant had dealt exceptional damage to both Master and Servant without even revealing himself, forcing them to retreat.''
* Chapter 28:
** Assassin [[spoiler: pretty much screws up Archer and Rider with ease.]]
* In chapter 31, Assassin [[spoiler: demolished Zouken's workshop and nearly killed him]], driving him to desperation with embarrassing ease.
** Not to mention Sakura actually fighting back against the Shadow after realizing what was going on.
* Chapter 32:
** [[EnemyMine Kirei and Shirou working together to completely ''destroy'' Zouken; mind, body and soul.]]
** In the meantime, [[ManipulativeBastard Zouken managed to manipulate Illya into attacking Witch!Medea and Assassin by just talking with her]] ''[[ManipulativeBastard once]]''. And that with Illya realizing exactly what was happening...
** Kuzuki's brief encounter with Assassin. The fact it was completely peaceful and non-violent only adds to it.
* The battle of chapter 33.

* Assassin's Identity.
