[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5591380/1/FateBlack_Reflection FateBlack Reflection]] is a {{Crossover}} FanFic between ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1885001/Nameless_Flame_Wielder Nameless Flame Wielder]] in which Kurosaki Ichigo is forced to participate in the 5th Holy Grail War when he is attacked by [[BloodKnight Lancer]] and inadvertently [[SummoningRitual summons]] a Servant of his own.

The story begins simply enough: [[MagneticHero Ichigo]] and [[BadassCrew his]] [[TrueCompanions friends]] are called in to investigate a series of deaths and disappearances in a nearby town, which Soul Society believes to be connected to the [[LightNovel/FateZero events that occurred ten years ago]] in the same city.

The story appears to be a combination of the Fate and Unlimited Blade Works [[MultipleEndings routes]] with ''Bleach'' thrown into the mix, though the [[WordOfGod author]] has mentioned that pieces from the Heaven's Feel route will be incorporated as well. Possibly one of the best aspects of this story is the writing; Nameless has a solid grasp on the characters of both universes, and it ''shows''.

----

!!Tropes used in Fate/Black Reflection include:
* AdaptationalBadass:
** [[spoiler:Shirou and Bazett]] are individually developing spiritual powers as the story progresses.
*** Also moves into TookALevelInBadass as [[spoiler:Bazett]] develops rune-powered close-combat magic to fight [[spoiler: Hollows]].
** Tatsuki has been learning Hakuda as a martial arts style from Yoruichi and can focus her spirit energy into her punches and kicks.
* BeamOWar: [[spoiler: Excalibur vs. (Bankai) Getsuga Tenshou.]]
* BigBadEnsemble: Kirei & Gilgamesh, versus Caster, versus Zouken.
* BigDamnHeroes: Quite a few instances, but the most spectacular is [[spoiler:Ichigo's rescuing of Rider]].
* BloodKnight: Both Lancer and Ichigo show their tendencies during their ''intense'' rematch. Rider is also this, albeit to a lesser extent.
* ChekhovsSkill: Rider dreams about Ichigo's fight with Kenpachi in Soul Society through the Command Seal link. The next night, Ichigo displays the ability to handle Berserker easily, to the wonderment of everyone else there. Rider recalls the dream and realizes that the reason Ichigo can fight Berserker so well is because he has experience fighting opponents with overwhelming power and no strategy.
%%* ConflictBall: Somewhat; see below.
* CuteAndPsycho: Illya, as usual.
* DidntSeeThatComing: When Lancer and Bazett have their reunion, they manage to keep Kirei from understanding what they are talking about simply by speaking in Gaelic, a language Kotomine doesn't know. He's actually impressed that they managed to outwit him so simply.
* EldritchAbomination: Caster [[spoiler:fuses one of her Dragon Tooth skeleton familiars with a captured Hollow and]] creates a creature that according to Assassin is an aberration against nature.
* EnemyMine: Sort of. After Hollows start showing up in Fuyuki City ''en masse'', the Masters and Servants shift their focus from fighting each other to dealing with the infestation. Gilgamesh is not pleased by this, though it doesn't stop him from killing a few Hollows himself every now and then. However, no alliances are officially made, and several Servants and Masters still find the time to fight each other.
* FiveManBand: One each, arguably, from ''Bleach'' and ''Fate/Stay Night''.
** Karakura group:
*** TheHero: Ichigo
*** {{Deuteragonist}}: Rider
*** TheLancer: Rukia & Tatsuki
*** TheSmartGuy: Uryu
*** TheBigGuy: Chad
*** TheChick: Orihime
*** SixthRanger: [[spoiler:Renji & Hanataro]]
** Fuyuki group:
*** TheHero: Shirou
*** TheLancer: Saber
*** TheSmartGuy: Rin
*** TheBigGuy: Archer
*** TheChick: Sakura, despite the fact that she's not part of the team just yet.
* HonorBeforeReason: Rider observes that Ichigo has a case of this and is worried it will get him in serious trouble, especially considering he's fighting in the Grail War.
* InstantExpert: Kakolethros has an ''extremely'' high learning curve in combat.
* MadScientist: Upon discovering Hollows, Caster captures a bunch of them for study, including daily dissections and a host of experiments. She even [[spoiler:fuses one with one of her skeletal familiars]].
* MagneticHero: Ichigo is [[LampshadeHanging observed]] to be this by [[spoiler:Bazett]] when they meet for the first time.
* PoorCommunicationKills: The two major groups of good guys are trying to kill each other, mostly because they don't seem to know squat about the right way to find out who is a potential ally and who isn't. Ichigo and his TrueCompanions are acting all mysterious and interrogative, with ominous questions being thrown out. ("Why do you want the Grail?") Shirou and his allies aren't much better, as their first response to this is to attack the people who haven't done anything yet. It gets especially bad when Saber [[spoiler:tries to use Excalibur on Rider]] and Ichigo [[BerserkButton gets pissed off in response]].
** As Chapter 22 shows, the Fuyuki group are worse at it; though they've no reason to trust the ominous people, their first response appears to be "attack first, ask questions later." ''Especially'' Archer.
** However, as of chapter 23, it seems Shirou is beginning to regret this, after a massive confrontation with [[spoiler: Chad, Uryu, Rukia, Renji, Rider and Hanataro all at once.]]
* PsychoSupporter: Kakolethros is fanatically loyal and subservient to Caster.
* SensingYouAreOutmatched: Shirou's developing spiritual sense lets him feel the vast superiority of Ichigo's power.
* ShipTease: There are a few… suggestive elements regarding Ichigo and Rider's partnership. Not least of which is Rider [[spoiler:being pulled into Ichigo's Inner World by Zangetsu]]. But it's still too early to tell.
** Also too early to say for sure, but there is a bit between Chad and Ayako as well.
** Though she's probably just being a {{Troll}} about it, Rider keeps [[LesYay flirting with Tatsuki]].
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Bazett manages to survive due to a timely find-and-heal courtesy of Orihime.
* SpiderSense: During the war with Aizen Ichigo developed combat instincts that somehow warn him of sudden sneak attacks.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Thanks to Caster's experiments on the Hollows, [[spoiler: she gives Assassin a Hollow mask much like the Vizards wear. It helps him overpower Saber completely and upgrades his signature move Tsubame Gaeshi by throwing the same strikes in either reverse or another angle. The mask also puts a great toll on Assassin, something he is wary of... and something that Caster is too excited to care about.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: Ichigo earns this from Rider, much like her devotion to Sakura in ''Fate/Stay Night''. She becomes extremely devoted to him to the point that she makes it clear in her internal monologues that she will do ''anything'' to keep him safe because she thinks that his HonorBeforeReason tendencies will get him killed, to the point that she will sometimes slip into being a PsychoSupporter--best shown when she almost kills [[spoiler:Renji and Hanataro]] because she misheard a joke.
* UnskilledButStrong: A majority of Soul Reapers tend to fight using the power of their zanpakutos and their kido spells over their actual weapon technique. Ichigo notices this compared to Lancer, a Servant of the spear, who is both strong AND skilled, with unmatched speed and accuracy with the weapon. [[BloodKnight Not that he's complaining.]]
--> ''It was so new to Ichigo. He had never fought opponents with this much pure skill with their weapon until the Holy Grail War drafted him. Most of his foes used the power of their zanpakutou and their special techniques as much as their actual swordsmanship. Even Byakuya and Aizen put emphasis on using the special abilities of their swords and kido in battle over such sublime mastery of their weapon. Lancer didn't have those options aside from the trump card that was his Noble Phantasm's ultimate move, but he still could give him an interesting fight.''
* WhiteAndWhiteMorality: Ichigo's group vs. Shirou's group is ''made'' of this, along with PoorCommunicationKills--they're definitely all good guys with noble intentions, but because they're being either overly cautious or reckless, they've so far only succeeded in making enemies of each other.
** BlueAndOrangeMorality: Ichigo's group vs. All the other magi and all the Heroic Spirits. Soul Reapers are trying to maintain the balance of souls between the worlds and keep casualties to a minimum. The other participants in the Holy Grail War, excluding Shirou, are here to get the Grail by whatever means and keep anyone from finding out. Their morals aren't just different, they're flat-out incompatible.
* WorthyOpponent: When Rider accepts that Ichigo is much more powerful than her and she won't be playing the traditional role of a Servant, she decides to vet the competition to see who is worthy to fight him.
