"Trace, on."
"Trigger, off."
"Set - Nine Lives Blade Works."

"If you walk down the path that you believe is right, you cannot be wrong."

"It´s not 'can you keep up with me.'"

"Divine skill, flawless and firm
Strength moves mountains
Blade cuts water
Life approaches the Imperial Villa
Two great men, shared life."note 

"People can only look away when faced with their own mistakes."

"That's right. I don't create swords. I create a world that contains infinite swords. This is the only magic allowed for me. There's no need to be surprised. These are all imitations. As you say, these are all trifling swords. But there is no rule that says an imitation cannot defeat the original. If you say you are the original, I will surpass every one of your weapons and destroy your existence. Here I come, King of Heroes! Do you have enough swords in stock?"

"—I won't lose to you. I don't mind losing to somebody else.
But I can't lose against myself!

"I can't stray from my path for those I've left behind."

"People die when they are killed. That's the way things should be."

"Yeah. It's rare for her to run away. But... I see, even Mitsuzuri is weak against molesters. I guess that's good. It's impossible to teach her femininity unless something like this happens."

"Heh. So it's not like dying here won't accomplish anything."note 

"I am the bone of my sword
Steel is my body and fire is my blood
I have created over a thousand blades
Unaware of loss, Nor aware of gain
Withstood pain to create weapons, waiting for one’s arrival
I have no regrets. This is the only path
My whole life was Unlimited Blade Works"

"I ask of you, are you my master?"

"Even if he is not a Master, our contract will not go away.
I have sworn to protect him and to be his sword."

"...I say. What kind of magic did you two use to get him on our side?"note 

"A man without fear cannot be wise."

"Useless...! That Noble Phantasm cannot match me!"note 

"You have grown strong, Shirou. ...No, that is wrong. You were strong from the start."

    Rin Tohsaka 
"I announce!
Thy body shall be under my command,
my fate shall be determined by thy sword!
Follow the call of the Holy Grail.
If thou wouldst obey this mind and this reason, obey me!
Then I shall entrust my fate to your sword...!"

"The world is just another word for the things you value around you, right? That's something I've had since I was born. If you tell me to rule such a world, I already rule it."

"Look, Emiya-kun. People normally die when they are killed."

"Y-ou, get lost in your afterlife, you damn priest...!! You have no place to be, okay!? Even hell wouldn't take a bastard like you!
An impotent guy like you should lay on needles in hell...!!!"

"Are you stupid?! What insults to the king...!?
It's meaningless to be the king if all humans are eliminated!"note 

"I'm here, Caster. I thought about it thoroughly, but I've decided to have you eliminated.
You're an eyesore, you get in my way, you annoy me, and I hate the way you look. You're like some backwoods hag with that purple robe of yours."

    Ilyasviel "Ilya" von Einzbern 
"I'm sure you know the legend Rin, the Greek hero Hercules had to overcome the twelve labors in order to atone for his sins, and the reward he received was a form of immortality. A curse that forces him to live through the deaths he avoided in life."

"I'm not scared anymore even though it's dark. You're strong, Berserker. I'm safe if you're there like that."

"You said an older brother protects his younger sister, right? …Yeah. I'm the older sister. So I have to protect my younger brother."

"Then I'll show you a miracle. It's an application of the magic I showed you earlier, but this one's amazing. This is the sorcery everyone wanted to see, after all."note 

    Kiritsugu Emiya 
"You cannot save everyone.
—Look, Shirou. A superhero can only save the people he has sided with."

"I am the bone of my sword.
Steel is my body, and fire is my blood.
I have created over a thousand blades,
Unknown to death,
Nor known to life.
Have withstood pain to create many weapons.
Yet those hands will never hold anything.
So, as I pray - Unlimited Blade Works!"

(Alternate translation in the English dub of the anime)
"I am the flesh and bone of my own sword...
Steel flows through my body, and fire courses through my blood!
I have created over a thousand blades...
Unknown to death, nor known to life...
Many times, I have withstood enormous pain to create thousands of weapons.
And yet, those hands that have created so much will never hold anything.
So, as I pray now, I call forth Unlimited Blade Works!"

"Power uproot the mountains; blades, divide the waters!"

"...what you should always be imagining is you at your most powerful."

"Fortunately, I do not have any pride. But what about it? Will the name of the hero be disgraced?
Hah, don’t make me laugh, Lancer. You can wash away disgrace with results. You can feed your meaningless pride to the dogs."

"Atone for my sins? [...] I have no sins to atone for, nor have I forced such a meaningless concept on anyone."

"It is useless. I am your ideal. You should realize you cannot match me."note 

"Buying you some time is fine, but you don't mind if I beat that thing, right?"

"If you can only live by holding onto that ideal, drown in your ideals."

"But it's all a fake. Such hypocrisy cannot save anything.
No, first of all, I did not know what I wanted to save—!"

"It cannot be helped if you cannot compromise on that. —It will be regrettable, but you will die here, Gilgamesh."

"The only people a superhero can save are the people he sides with."

"If you cannot defeat your enemy with the weapon you do have, then imagine one with which you could."

"You appear to be a brave person, unlike my master. I shall kill you kindly."

"Oh. You guys are like monkeys, jumping down like that.
I don't know why you're in such a hurry, but use the stairs if you're human."

"But this is cruel. I finally found a wish..."note 

"—Here I come. Take this attack as your farewell gift...!"

"Oh — sorry, kid. I guess I let my hand do the talking."note 

"—Get lost. I might be almost dead, but I could still easily kill a thousand of you."

"...Hey. When did you change religion?
I thought it was my Master's belief to not come out into the open?"

"I wouldn't be a hero if I instantly died from a wound like this."note 

"Don't worry about it. I'm used to this kind of thing.
Heroes always die because of unreasonable orders."

"—Hah. Whatever, young lady. Come back when you're older."

"King of Knights, it was truly...fun."

"Enuma Elish!"

"Who gave you permission to talk to me, mongrel?"

"I cannot even stand to look at a counterfeit that a faker has created.
You piece of trash. You have nothing real within you.
An imitation made by copying people should be turned to junk."

"I am Gilgamesh, King of Heroes!"

"Oh, immortality. Heh, I gave that to the snake."

"I do not want lowlifes. The only ones worth ruling over are those that can survive even the flames of hell."

"The ashes will dirty me. You escaped death this time, child."

"If I shied away from all the curses in the world, what sort of Hero would I be? 'Suffer all the worlds evil'? Ha, they think they can ruin all me with a mere curse? They should have tripled it's strength! An epic hero is someone who bears the burden of every human in his sight. I've been carrying that weight on my shoulders since the beginning of time!"

"To a King, his country is nothing more than his property. If a King cannot control his property, then his people no longer need someone as powerful as a King and it is because of that, King Arthur, that you woke up to find that your country had turned on you."

"You are a hateful woman. You defied me to the very end. But I shall forgive you. Some things are beautiful because they cannot be obtained."

"Rejoice, young man. Your wish will finally come true."

"People tend to hate those similar to themselves. Everything your father did, did nothing but annoy me. In fact, I'd imagine it is quite like the hate you are feeling for me."

"Sparing me was not his real mistake. His real mistake was believing that by simply destroying the Holy Grail he had ended all the fighting. He lived out his days being ravaged by my curse, confident that he needn't tell you anything. In a few years he died, harboring a false sense of accomplishment!"

"I want to know if it is a crime to live as you are, when you are different from others."

"Angra Mainyu! Accept and suffer every evil in this world!"

"I envy you people. What I sought, but could not obtain. What I obtained, but could not obtain. Many things slipped out between my fingers, no matter what commandment I used."

"What a troublesome body. The one attacking has to risk his life.note — But this should make a good handicap. In short, our fight is... Not a fight against someone else, but a battle with your body at stake!"

"You are the last Master. Go to the Holy Grail and fulfill your wish."

"I will kill
I will let live
I will harm and heal
None will escape me
None will escape my sight"

"Be crushed
I welcome those who have grown old and those who have lost.
Devote yourself to me, learn from me, and obey me.
Do not forget song, do not forget prayer, and do not forget me.
I am light and relieve you of all your burdens."

"Do not pretend.
Retribution for forgiveness, betrayal for trust, despair for hope, darkness for light, dark death for the living."

"Relief is in my hands.
I will add oil to your sins and leave a mark
Eternal life is given through death.
Ask for forgiveness here. I, the incarnation will swear."

"Emiya Shirou.
As you feel supreme bliss in others' happiness,
I feel supreme bliss in others' unhappiness."

"Kyrie eleison."


"Do you behold, King Arthur, the continuation to your dream?"

Lancer: But what? You want me to tell you who my master is?
Shirou: No. Even though we're cooperating, stay away from Tohsaka.
Lancer: Hah, I see, I see! Yeah, that's so much more important than who my master is! You're right, kid!

Shirou: Guh——hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on...! Why does it have to be that!? It's sex we're talking about! We're making love, we're making babies, and we're going to be embracing each other naked!? You can't do that with me!
Rin: ...What? We're just going to be having sex... I think it's much easier than fighting with your life on the line.
