God Never Said That: The final Tiger Dojo states that the player has reached the true end of the story. Unfortunately, some people have misconstrued that as to mean the final route, Heavens Feel, is the canon ending, despite that all endings are canon in the Nasuverse.
Let's Play: Professor_Prof does one here. A finished one can also be read here. Useful if you are looking for specific quotes ( Fan Fic writers, we're looking at you) or Awesome Moments and don't feel like playing the whole game again (unless you used the 100 save slots provided to set up a save at the start of every one of your favourite scenes).
No Export for You: As with a lot of anime based on visual novels, the original VN has never received an official English version.
The Other Darrin: Due to union issues , note Kate Higgins was the only member of the original cast unable to reprise her role as Saber for the dub of "Unlimited Blade Works", leading to Michelle Ruff taking the role.
Relationship Voice Actor: Gilgamesh is voiced by Tomokazu Seki, who has several times played roles of villains that lust over the character played by Ayako Kawasumi (Saber's voice actor).
What Could Have Been:
An artbook known as ''Character Material'' has revealed that the protagonist was originally a girl named Sajyou Ayaka and her Servant would have been a guy (named Saver in the artbook). The female protagonist eventually was reworked into Shirou and Rin, but the original idea was animated into a short OVA titled
Fate Prototype. In one of the Tiger Dojos, Ilya mentions that it would be nice to see a Route in which Shinji cooperated with Shirou, or one Route when Caster became an ally. Taiga right away smacks Ilya in the head and say "Don't talk about the rejected Routes!". Along with the information on the "Ilya Route", which was cut and reworked into the "Heaven's Feel" route because Ilya is the Token Mini-Moe, this means that there would be a lot of Routes, but thanks to "time and resources not being infinite" (another quote from Taiga) they were rejected.
To be more specific, Fate/side material revealed that in the Caster Route, Caster would have reversed her age, turned into a loli and become the protagonist's partner. Unlike Rider's route which was also scrapped, none of this was incorporated in the end product.
Fate Prototype shows us that Gilgameshīs original Noble Phantasm instead of Ea was Enki (which is another name for the same god), a bow/double sword combo that allowed him to summon the Surge of Utnapishtim, or as itīs better known, . He also had a third passive Noble Phantasm that allowed him to survive any battle no matter what, the flood Noah had to survive which would clash with Berserkerīs Noble Phantasm, which was to not lose for eleven battles, concluding with Gilgamesh losing but surviving and Berserker winning but dying. He was also far more skilled in melee combat, easily trouncing Saber in a fight with only his Enki blades.
