** Let's not forget how Akiha wtfpwned [[spoiler:SHIKI]] in the end of Hisui route. If only she had those mad killing skills ready in her own route... ;_;
*** You don't call [[spoiler:Vermillion Akiha ripping SHIKI apart]] to be mad killing skills?

* It has to be said. As bad as the anime adaptation was, and as out-of-character as it would be for [[ChickMagnet Shiki]] to sit there and take it, [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Arcueid]], [[ChurchMilitant Ciel]], and [[HalfHumanHybrid Akiha]] getting into a verbal catfight over him makes perfect sense...but it's the fact that ''[[OnlySaneMan Satsuki]]'' finally jumps out of her seat and tells them all to shut up, sit down, and leave Shiki the hell alone (which they ''do'', possibly out of shock) that feels oddly satisfying. Go [[spoiler:non-vampire]] Sacchin!

* Kohaku, at the end of the Hisui arc [[spoiler:when it turns out that the happenings of pretty much ''the entire game'' were all part of her [[EvilPlan big plan]] to kill off the entire Tohno family. And then commits suicide right in front of the man she's secretly been in love with for years.]]

* ''Kagetsu Tohya'' also provides belated characterization of SHIKI, who wasn't portrayed as sympathetic in the original game until the very end of Hisui's route or in a dream sequence during Kohaku's. In "Drinking, Dreaming Moon", Shiki and SHIKI are able to talk on friendly terms, and finally cry the tears they should have shed when they killed each other in a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and TearJerker.

* There's a doujin where Shiki sees a star where nobody else sees one, and then realizes that's the Killing Spot for the ''universe.'' He makes a note of it, in case in the future the universe "requires to end." Think about that for a second.
** The limits of his ability have been argued to ridiculous levels at [[http://nrvnqsr.proboards20.com/index.cgi Beast's Lair]]. General consensus is that, while he wouldn't be able to safely kill anything outside of or greater than Gaia's cycle (non-Gaia beings = vastly different concepts of death), he is still the ultimate hax.
** General consensus nothing, that's part of things stated by WordOfGod about Shiki not being able to kill thing's like ORT because it's not part of gaia and thus immune to the gaian order of death. And even within Gaia, there are things that are immune to his eyes ala Arcueid under a full moon or Tatari in phenomenon form.
*** Killing the universe is explicitly impossible for Shiki Tohno. It ''is'', however, perfectly possible for [[spoiler:[[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Shiki Ryougi]]]].


** On the [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick]] forums, on one of the vs. threads, I forget which Shiki it was, but s/he managed to ''solo the '''entire [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Warhammer 40k]] universe'''''.
*** Probably Ryougi.

** Made even better by the group of other mages including Lorelei Barthomeloi, who is the single most powerful mage still completely human and capable of fighting on the same level as the Dead Apostle Ancestors and winning ''alone'', ed Enhance, the Dead Apostle Ancestor who ''hunts down other Dead Apostle Ancestors '''and their clans''' for a living''. And yet he walked in, ''pulled an Enhance'' (as in killing both the Ancestor and every other Dead Apostle inside) and was not noticed until he stumbled on them ''by accident''.

** And let's not forget to give props to Roa as well in that scene, after getting dot stabbed by Shiki and having his legs crushed by debris he's STILL alive. Roa then crawls over to Shiki, who is nearly comatose due to both his physical stunts and overuse of his eyes, and attempts to pull a GrandTheftMe on Shiki. If it weren't for [[BigDamnHeroes Ciel]] getting the drop on Roa there's a good chance he would have succeeded.

* Nrvnqsr beating the shit out of Shiki without noticing OR turning to face him. While he was using a majority of his power to trap Arcuied in the Soil of Genesis.

Added DiffLines:

* The fight between Shiki and Akiha in Kohaku's route too. If you choose to kill Akiha, Nanaya-mode Shiki simply jumps once off the wall and once off the roof surprising Akiha and preventing her from fixing her gaze on him properly (all she needs to plunder him), closing the 10 meters between them and cutting her head clean off in one smooth motion. All he loses is a leg in spite of attacking someone who can kill with a glance across 10 meters of straight hallway. [[HintSystem Ciel-sensei]] points out that indeed, regardless of the difference in their power, when it comes killing Shiki is the master and he should go easy on Akiha.

** The manga keeps topping itself. That fight is still a crowning moment for Akiha. Ciel gets a new one when she fights Roa...including at one point pulling a [[FateStayNight Gate of Babylon]] [[ReverseShrapnel style attack]] using Black Keys.
