It's the ending of the Heaven's Feel Route. Shirou hesitates in slaying [[EldritchAbomination Angra Mainyu]] long enough for him, Illya and Angra to be brought to the Campione-verse. Shirou slays him there.

Since he IS All The Evils of the World, Angra counts as a god. [[CursedWithAwesome And what happens to people who kill gods]]?

Thus, now with powers beyond his wildest dreams, Shirou begins his quest to go back home.

[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8560965/1/God-Slaying-Blade-Works God Slaying Blade Works]] is a FateStayNight/LightNovel/{{Campione}}! crossover written by Marcus Galen Sands.

!!This story contains examples of:

* AdaptationalBadass / TookALevelInBadass: Shirou. Yes, he was already quite the badass in Heaven's Feel, but [[BadassTransplant it]] [[BlessedWithSuck came]] [[BodyHorror at]] [[DeadlyUpgrade a cost]]. After becoming a Campione, that ceased to be a problem.
* AlasPoorVillain: Venus's last thoughts were why wasn't she able to have Shirou's full love. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Whether such thoughts are genuine or surprise at her power's inability to control him are up to debate.]]
* AllMythsAreTrue: Shirou claims they are, but just not in the same story in order to explain the existence of [[spoiler: Rhongomyniad, the spear of King Arthur to Guinevere, who had made it up as a part of Arthur's (Artus's) legend.]]
* AnimalMotifs: The majority of the Authorities are often associated with certain animals by Campione.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: A positive deconstructed version with [[LadyOfWar Luo Hao]]. She certainly is arrogant, but she never insults other people [[InnocentlyInsensitive on purpose]], she takes care of her subordinates, and only thinks very highly of herself because she believes she's earned her prestige. Equally, she believes other people can earn her respect and become just as great as her [[BloodKnight and she wants them to try.]] In short, she's very arrogant, but has every right to be.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: All [[GodSlayer Campione]] are this by default, but [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Luo Hao]] takes it a step further and bases her entire philosophy of Kingship around this concept: Her opinion on the matter is'since [[ThirdPersonPerson Luo Hao]] is the greatest warrior in China, then ''shouldn't'' Luo Hao be entitled to rule it?'
* BadassBoast: "I'm not Steel...I am Sword, I'm the Steel that has been refined and forged, hammered and tempered. Given form, given purpose. I'm the Strongest Steel."
** BlasphemousBoast: Borderline when one understands the meaning of Steel and Strongest Steel in Campione. Steel is the domain solely of Hero Gods while the Strongest Steel is Artus, the most powerful Steel god. Shirou unknowingly declared himself superior to the King of the End.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Shirou, BIG TIME. Considering that he literally has godlike powers, woe betide ANYONE who hurts Illya. Godou himself says that this is a zero percent chance that Illya would ever be in his nonexistent [[CluelessChickMagnet (to him)]] harem because of this.
* BigNo: [[spoiler: Mordred's reaction to Shirou's BadassBoast.]]
* BondVillainStupidity: [[spoiler: Apollo. See AnticlimaxBoss in the YMMV tab, EvilGloating, HarmlessVillain, and NiceJobFixingItVillain]]
* BreakTheHaughty: [[spoiler: Mordred gets a MASSIVE case of this with Shirou foiling every single one of his strategies. And then Apollo gets his butt, and ego, handed to him by Godoh.]]
* BringMyBrownPants: An understandable reaction when faced with [[spoiler: Puppet Berserker]].
* [[spoiler: BrownNote: Apollo attempts this as a finishing move. He's defeated before it takes hold]].
* CantCatchUp: Illya is one of the most powerful non-Campione mages in the story and even she is helpless [[spoiler:to stop Venus from controlling Shirou]].
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: [[spoiler:Mordred]] apparently has the ability induce this in people he's "allied" with. [[UpToEleven Even after he's dead.]]
* ComboPlatterPowers: Now that Shirou's a [[PersonOfMassDestruction Campione]], he's entitled to this.
** BadPowersGoodPeople[=/=]PowerAtAPrice: Curses Without End, from Angra Mainyu. Associated with an eager puppy that turns into a wolf.
*** WindsOfDestinyChange / CosmicPlaything: The result of inflicting someone with Misfortune.
*** AnthropomorphicPersonification: Shirou is capable of creating these out of his curses.
** SuperStrength / SuperSpeed / MadeOfIron : Dragon Slaying Hero, from Perseus. Associated with a heroic pegasus, like Mount of the Hero.
** TheBeastmaster: Mount of the Hero, from Perseus.
** ChickMagnet / RescueRomance: Hero's Bride, from Perseus. Yes, it's an actual power now. Associated with a proud peacock.
** TheNecromancer / FictionFiveHundred: Rule of the Underworld, taken from Hades. Associated with a grumpy, sleepy dragon that nonetheless does its job.
** InstantArmor: In four different flavors, taken from [[spoiler: Mordred]]
*** MightyGlacier / JackOfAllStats: Armor of the Champion
*** PowerLimiter / InvisibilityCloak: The Black Knight's Armor
*** InstantArmor for Redshirts / Power Limiter: Steel for the Legion. Associated with an Ant Colony.
*** LightningBruiser / TheJuggernaut: Titan Armor. Associated with a boar.
** EmotionBomb / PowerParasite: Bloodstained Fields, from [[spoiler: Mordred]]
** Is also applicable to [[spoiler: Apollo, whose acting as many gods over his divine carreer allowed him for numerous tangentially powers, such as music, healing, and archery.]]
---> [[spoiler: "The bow, poetry, plague, medicine, the sun, music, prophecy, you have so many Authorities and yet there seems to be little connection between them. However when one learns your other names and aspects then it becomes clearer."]] ~ Kusanagi Godou, [[spoiler:upon unleashing his Warrior Authority (aka Golden Swords) on Apollo]].
* CluelessChickMagnet: Godoh, like in the original series. [[HypocriticalHumor Shirou finds it ridiculous.]] Hilariously, by chapter 24 Shirou himself has fallen into a LoveTriangle he's unaware of between [[PrecociousCrush Guinivere]] and [[spoiler: [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Tiamat]] ]] thanks to his RescueRomance power. Yes, [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer look up, and you'll see it IS a power]].
* CompositeCharacter: [[spoiler:Shirou]] is an odd variation. [[spoiler:Archer had synchronized with the Shirous in Fate and Unlimited Blade Works, their memories being stored in his soul. When Shirou became a Campione the memories of both Shirous and Archer were integrated into Shirou's mind]].
** [[spoiler: Mordred, the Knight of Betrayal]] is revealed to be the amalgamation of [[spoiler:several war gods such us Laran, Ares, and Mars.]] Which is pretty much a standard in the [=Campione!Verse=], although it is noted that [[spoiler:if he was to return to his myth the modern distinction between them would cause him to separate into the component gods.]]
* ContinuityNod: [[spoiler: The entire Feast of Kings was based on Shirou having memories of [[LightNovel/FateZero the banquet Iskandar held]].]]
* CrazyPrepared: Shirou has prepared defenses for every single part of his house, and even has special measures for Illya [[spoiler: if he ever gets brainwashed.]]
* CreepyChild: Everyone's thoughts on Illya. She continues to prove them right every time.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Yusuke's reaction to buying all sorts of legendary wines, not for his wine collection, but [[spoiler: for the other Campione to drink.]]
* CurbStompBattle: Poor spawn of Niddhogg (a type of dragon) didn't know what it was getting into when it tried to fight Shiro with [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Dragon Slaying Hero]] active and wielding [[spoiler: [[InfinityMinusOneSword Arondight]].]]
** PlayedForLaughs with the curb-stomp NEGOTIATION that happened to Koizumi Watanabe. With the entire "discussion" being full of EntertaininglyWrong and yet perfectly logical, he even lampshades the fact that absolutely lost to Shirou. He was only saved because Shirou thought he was ill.
* {{Doorstopper}}: As of chapter 21 (Jan 2014) the story is closing in on 500k words. NarrativeFiligree is a large factor in this. Chapters 20 and 21 together are the length of a short novel and cover just one extended fight scene.
* EmpathicWeapon: Shirou's Noble Phantasms in general are like this due to how he makes near-perfect copies of them.
** [[spoiler: Shirou's HeroicSecondWind against Mordred happened because [[LightNovel/FateZero Arondight]] had Lancelot's love for Guinivere embedded in it. [[AlternateUniverse It was not the same Guinivere, but it was Guinivere all the same]]. And that made all the difference.]]
* EntertaininglyWrong: Featured heavily. The History Compilation Committee theorizes that Shirou and Illya are the apprentices of a hermetical mage among other things. Meanwhile Shirou believes the HCC to be similar to the Mage Association and prepares accordingly.
** The entirety of Watanabe's negotiation with Shirou.
* EpicFail: Godou somehow [[MindScrew partially dematerializes a Noble Phantasm]]. They're not supposed to be able to do that. Doubles as a FunnyMoment.
* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler:Mordred]] is one for Shirou. Both are considered fakers who can fight against the originals and possibly win. Both invoke themselves into steel. Also, [[spoiler:Mordred's line against Guinevere resembles that of Shirou's when he faces Gilgamesh in the UBW route.]]
* EvilLaugh: Of the MadScientist variety. [[spoiler: Rin has learned of [[{{Fiction500}} Rule of the]] [[TheNecromancer Underworld]]. Be afraid, Shirou. Be very afraid.]]
* EvilGloating: [[spoiler: Apollo did this every time Godou falls. Needless to say, he got defeated in one chapter.]]
** [[spoiler: Justified with Mordred, as his first armor makes him adopt his proud knight persona.]]
* FieldOfBlades: It's Shirou. It takes a while for him to get to ''Unlimited Blade Works'', the chant has changed due to the changes in his distorted world view, but you knew it was coming.
* FollowTheLeader: This is the first Fate Stay Night and Campione! crossover on Fanfiction.net. Now everyone has decided to get in on the fun bringing the Shirous' of the other routes.
* FluffyTheTerrible: Behold Charlotte/Charlie, [[spoiler: beheaded spawn of Nidhogg.]]
* HarmlessVillain: [[spoiler: Apollo again. After spending a lot of chapters just to summon him, he got defeated by Godou just one chapter after his appearance. This is after Athena thinks of him of dangerous because he seems to not care about pride and just going for the kill. He doesn't, he spends most of his time gloating at Godou when he should have just kill him.]]
* HonorBeforeReason: For Luo Hao, Honor IS Reason.
** Shirou doesn't use Caliburn or Excalibur until the later parts of his fight with [[spoiler: Mordred]] because something in him tells him to do it later. [[JustifiedTrope He's right.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: Half the reason Mordred died. The other reason was getting [[WaveMotionGun Excaliblasted]] in the face right after.]]
* LogicBomb: Two so far.
** Kaida upon hearing that Shirou, a godlike Campione with the rights of a King, cannot meet her because he went to school, she has a destructive cycle of circular logic about expecting the unexpected. She was told to expect it, but that was unexpected, but she did expect it...
** After mistakenly calling out Shirou, Luo Hao is lost. Since she was wrong, she must protect her honor through violence. On the other hand, because she swore an oath of peace, she must uphold her honor through non-violence. But she has to because of her honor, but she can't because of her honor...
* MadeOfIndestructium: Somehow, Shirou's cellphone survives all the punishment of his battle with [[spoiler: Mordred]].
* MassOhCrap: [[spoiler: The entire mage community has this after learning about Shirou inviting THREE [[PersonOfMassDestruction CAMPIONE]] to his mansion.]]
* MontyHaul: The entire mage community sees the [[spoiler: Feast of Kings as an amazing event. After an incredible battle of four Campione versus four Heretic Gods, Shirou invites the four Campione to a banquet with amazing food and drink, a contest of kings and, the most mind-boggling part, legendary weapons for all those attending.]]
* MundaneUtility: Shirou uses two Noble Phantasms as a light source and a fountain. He lampshades it.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: PlayedForLaughs. Shirou has this reaction when he realizes [[spoiler: he had just invited three of the other [[PersonOfMassDestruction Campione]] to a feast.]]
** And again, when he ended up [[spoiler: inviting Guinevere as well]].
** [[spoiler: Guinevere has one of her own when she accepts said invitation.]]
* MythologyGag: When Shirou's watchers from the History Compilation Committee appear in their maid uniforms, Illya's newly discovered [[FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya maid switch]] is triggered.
* [[spoiler:MoreThanMindControl: Venus '''attempts''' this with Arrows of Eros on Shirou, and then with Heart's Thief. In the end, she isn't ''entirely'' successful, and is left with her Authorities fully tapped, and a [[MindControl brainwashed]] Shirou under her control. WordOfGod is Shirou is effectively under a variation of MadEnhancement like Heracles was]].
* NarrativeFiligree: One of the flaws in the story is this.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler: Apollo ''again''. For all this time, Godou only had [Persian Warlord] as his Authority, a common complain among many fans. Then, he just got defeated and thus, [[YouKillItYouBoughtIt got his power to Godou taken by Godou because of it]].]]
** [[spoiler: Venus manages a form of this, in the end it was her threatening to kill Sakura that finally allowed Shirou to overcome her Heart Thief Authority]]
* {{Otaku}}: Illya, having been overexposed to modern entertainment, now uses her new skills as a MetaGirl to get personal entertainment from [[CluelessChickMagnet Godoh]] and his harem. It's affected her taste in naming as well...
** [[ThoseTwoGuys Those three perverts from the show]] are also this.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane]] [[PersonofMassDestruction Campione]]: Shirou's first undead Servant, Yusuke, believes that Japan has a monopoly on these after meeting Luo Hao.
* ThePowerOfLove: After two monster sized chapters of fighting, it wasn't [[spoiler: Luo Hao's martial prowess, Kusanagi's dogged determinism or even [[AntiMagic Rule Breaker]] that overcomes Venus' hold over Shirou, but his all consuming love of Sakura that won the day]].
** Shirou was only able to draw [[spoiler:Lancelot's]] sword because his love of [[spoiler:Guinevere]] was so deeply imprinted on the blade that it actually helped Shirou bring itself into existence so it could defend her.
* PrecociousCrush: You would think that [[spoiler: being hundreds of years old would prevent Guinivere]] from having one of these on [[ChickMagnet Shirou]]. [[ForegoneConclusion You would be wrong.]]
* SeriousBusiness: Meta-Example. The author has alienated several Nasuverse fans with rather lax handling of Nasuverse mechanics. He even managed to hit the FandomBerserkButton by mentioning in an Author's note his belief that Campiones are capable of defeating [[WorldsStrongestMan Gil]][[GameBreaker ga]][[PersonofMassDestruction mesh]] and [[EldritchAbomination TYPES]]/[[UltimateLifeform Aristoteles]]. He quickly retracted these statements after being pressured by angry reviewers into doing more in depth research into what he's talking about.
** Shirou for cooking [[SupremeChef as]] [[ChefOfIron usual.]] Now extends to his new maid Asuka, who [[UpToEleven surpasses his godly cooking.]]
* SmugSnake: Poor leader of the Circle. You decided to [[BullyingADragon mess with]] [[CreepyChild Illya]].
* SpitTake: Shirou's reaction to hearing about Illya's first day of Tea Ceremony lessons.
** --> '''"Kusanagi-san has added another girl to his harem."'''
** Hilariously, Illya was trying to see if he would SpitTake.
* SplitPersonality: Shirou adopts a fake persona he calls The Fake King when conversing with Campione, the Committee and other important magical figures. Recent chapters, however, have him slip into it subconciously.
* StormOfBlades: It's Shirou. Like this wouldn't happen.
** [[spoiler: Mordred/Mars/Laran can do this as well and tries to use it against Shirou. Except he's only got a thousand swords. Shirou quickly shows him the real deal.]]
** Godou's Warrior Authority, like in the original.
* SupremeChef: [[ChefOfIron Shirou]], to his bittersweet delight, [[UpToEleven has actually been surpassed]] by his new housemaid Asuka.
* TemptingFate: Shirou wonders how hard it could be to [[spoiler: invite three [[PersonOfMassDestruction Campione]] to his house without an apocalypse taking place.]] He lampshades that not saying it out loud shouldn't count.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Luo Hao and Guinevere share this trait.
** In an odd variation of FirstPersonPOV, [[spoiler: the entire thought process of Shirou's pegasus Snow is told in first-person... But he's a ThirdPersonPerson.]]
* ThisCannotBe: Guinevere's reaction to [[spoiler: Shirou presenting her Rhongomyniad, which in this verse is nothing more than a story she herself invented.]]
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: The head of the Seishuuin family's reaction upon learning [[spoiler: that Shirou had invited three other [[PersonOfMassDestruction Campiones]] to a feast.]]
* TheWarSequence: [[spoiler: Shirou's undead army versus Mordred's magic knights. First Shirou is losing... And then he traces [[LightNovel/FateZero Gae]] [[AntiMagic Dearg]] copies for half his army, and then it becomes a CurbStompBattle.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: Pretty much all of Shirou's subordinates. Which is even better, because [[LiteralTrope they're already dead.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: Mordred doesn't take Shirou's BadassBoast well.]]
* WhamLine: Chapter 26 - Interlude Two: To Endure and Persevere, once these words were read...
** [[spoiler: As her (Sakura Matou's) eyes drifted shut some detached corner of her mind noted that the back of her right hand was itching in a strangely familiar way]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[spoiler: Alex of Gascoigne has a case of this when he learned what a MontyHaul the Feast of Kings was.]]
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Shirou tries to justify why he isn't using [[spoiler: Excalibur against Mordred. He does it at the end of the fight, which leads to him meeting Guinivere.]]
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Most of [[spoiler: Mordred]]'s lines.
* YouWatchTooMuchX: Shirou worries Ilya may be watching too much anime whenever she starts making parallels between their life and common anime tropes. Even Ilya thinks this when she catches herself debating whether Godoh or Shirou is the protagonist during a pitched battle.
** The {{Omake}} sections show what happens when the siblings think this is happening to each other. Shirou starts having nightmares of Illya fighting [[HumongousMecha evil emperor Gilgatron]] with her own [[TransformingMecha transforming]] [[CarnivalPhantasm Bersercar]], while Illya is horrified of Shirou acting like a Franchise/KamenRider. Shirou then wonders if [[EpicFail it would be better if Illya watched]] YuGiOh, while Illya hopes [[TemptingFate nothing could possibly go wrong]] if Shirou watched {{Batman}}.
* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: Godou, as usual. He weeps when his [[CluelessChickMagnet apparently insatiable lust]] is entirely expected of him.
