* MagikarpPower: As the Legendary Holy Sword, Jian has the potential to become very powerful in the long run. This is a ''[[DeconstructedTrope very]]'' [[PleaseDontLeaveMe sore spot]] for her as this also means she is going to [[TheLoad hold back]] Shirou for a long time. [[ReconstructedTrope She's working hard to fix this.]]

** It was even greater when the chapter with this info first came out, before the Author edited it out. Originally, Risha would not only have had an affinity for all Elements, but she would have also had an ''aligned Origin for all elements too''! This would have boosted her magical talent to unseen heights had it been kept, as not even Rin had an Origin that was the same as her Element affinity. However, the Author was quickly forced to RetCon the Origin part after Reader complaints on how ''[[SuperpowerLottery stupidly broken]]'' that would make Rishia.

* TheArchmage: While not yet one, she certainly has the potential to become one in the future. She is an Average One capable of Elemental Magic, in addition to Ether. Furthermore, she has a talent for Healing and Support Magic in addition to her Elemental Magic, having already learnt the Third Level of said spells in a month's time[[note]]That's the Third Level out of Four, with a Fifth Level only being able to be used by Heroes[[/note]] and her Magic Circuits Quantity rivals an Elite Magus and her Circuit Quality is greater than Rin's. For perspective, Rin would, in canon, go on to become one of the Top 100 Magi in the entire history of Mage Association!

* WoundedGazelleGambit: In addition to the stunt she pulled with Naofumi in canon, [[spoiler:she tries to get in with the Sword Hero Issei after the Wave by claiming Motoyasu was abusing her. "Issei" doesn't buy it for a second, and going by the face she makes, it seems that's the first time she's ever failed to deceive a guy in her life.]]

* InstrumentOfMurder: Shirou Traces Failnaught ("Fail-Not") for her, [[Characters/KingArthur Sir]] [[Literature/TristanAndIseult Tristan]]'s Noble Phantasm in ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', which is both a bow and a harp and she uses it in both capacities.

* GagPenis: Midori has "one fit for a king" as per canon. Everyone commented on how ''gigantic'' it is when Naofumi revealed it to get [[HandsomeLech Motoyasu]] to stop hitting on Midori once for all.
* MasterPoisoner: Midori is part of a rare Filorial sub-type that can spit poison, so he knows a lot about it.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: While still just as idiotic as his canon self, this Motoyasu actually seems to be (mostly) aware of his own failings, while actually wanting to ''be'' a hero in truth rather than the HeroicWannabe of canon. The problem, of course, is his [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter choice of companions]].

Added DiffLines:

* WhiteMagic: Her elemental Affinity is Holy, which Shirou speculates is due to being descendant from a Hero and, due to her Pure Eyes, inheriting that Hero's "Fate" (basically their quest and will). [[spoiler:And due to her soul stubbornly clinging on to the Traced Excalibur and Avalon, her very Origin is becoming twisted into "Holy" as well.]]


** The reason for their divergent CharacterDevelopment can be traced back to their {{Backstor|y}}ies and the way they got to learn more about Shirou. Rita was a normal 15-year-old DemiHuman girl that was recently orphaned and sold to slavery, but rescued by Shirou before anything worse than getting a Slave Seal drawn on her could happen to her and got to slowly know him over the course of a few weeks. Atlas has suffered for years a chronically ill orphaned slave that was used as leverage to get her brother to fight as a gladiator before Shirou suddenly appeared out of ''nowhere'' and changed their fates and that of ''thousands'' of slaves for the better, on top of her AuraVision giving her an instant and too complete first impression of the kind of person he is, which not only made her utterly fascinated with him but also seems to have been almost too much for her mind to handle. As a result, whereas Rita is similar to Rin by the end of the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' who wants Shirou to love himself more (or at all) despite his issues, Atlas is more like Medea to his Souichirou in that she would do ''anything'' to make him happy and remain by his side.

A large, Orca type DemiHuman. She hails from the same village as Keel and Raphtalia, but was away when the First Wave manifested right beside it.

Azu is the 8-year-old daughter of the Dragon God Tyr. She initially joined the party as a joke from Jian and later permanently [[spoiler:after Fitoria's revelation that she inherited her father's fragment of the Dragon Emperor's Core, one of the Four Sacred Beasts, the equivalent of the Beast of Gaia in Shirou's world, as an alternative to killing her off due to her potential threat]].
