The anime provides examples of:
- Badass Transplant: Shirou's left arm, which is wrapped in red cloth on the poster, belongs to Archer, his Heroic Spirit future self. It lets him use Unlimited Blade Works' full potential, but is slowly killing him by turning his body into swords.note
- Black Knight: Saber Alter is clad in black and red armor, and wields a demonic version of Excalibur. She is also far more powerful than in her standard form.
- The Corruption: Treated as a Late-Arrival Spoiler by the poster. Saber is devoured by the Shadow, and through exposure to Angra Mainyu's cursed black mud she is corrupted into the evil Saber Alter. Similarly, Berserker is consumed and corrupted into Dark Berserker. Sakura herself succumbs to Angra Mainyu and transforms into Dark Sakura.
- Eldritch Abomination: Angra Mainyu, the corrupted Avenger-class Servant summoned by the Einzberns in the Third Grail War, was transformed into the embodiment of All the World's Evil by the Fuyuki Grail and seeks to be reborn as a God of Evil. Using Sakura as a host, it manifests as the Shadow and goes on a rampage, devouring countless people, blackening both Saber and Berserker, eating Gilgamesh, and eventually blackening Sakura as well.
- Late-Arrival Spoiler: Saber Alter, Dark Berserker, Angra Mainyu, and Sakura being connected to Rider are three major spoilers from the visual novel that the poster blatantly reveals.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: The Shadow is a black jellyfish-like entity with red-trimmed ribbon-like tentacles. Saber Alter's armor and sword turn black with red markings, while Dark Berserker turns black with exposed red veins. As Angra Mainyu's avatar, Dark Sakura retains the Shadow's red-trimmed black color scheme.
