Added DiffLines:

* ArbitrarySkepticism: Most Earth Bet inhabitants don't believe in magic and insist Taylor and her Servants' abilities are simply science they haven't discovered yet. Even Hero, who is now a Servant, doesn't believe in magic.


Added DiffLines:

* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: Hero meets a god nicknamed the Old Man who explains that he is from a religion that had been long forgotten on Earth Bet. No one on Earth Bet has any faith, so gods like him are on their last legs and will disappear soon.
* HowIsThatEvenPossible: Hero, who wasn't summoned yet when they defeated Leviathan, asks Da Vinci how they penetrated its flesh and extracted its core, considering its body is infinitely dense the deeper it goes, meaning it would take more energy than the universe to penetrate. He doesn't believe her when she says they used a wish from a Holy Grail to change the rules and make it possible.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulRename: Hero examines Gáe Bolg and finds runes than when translated, reveal the spear had been renamed several times.
-->Heed me. I speak for the favor of the Tuatha Dé. For the eyes of Danu to witness and none else. Grant me the strength to pierce the Fomorian hide of Balor. Allow me the strength to wretch his sight of the Scorching Sun. I ask of thee to reforge mine spear. With the blessing of the Witch of Shadows. With the curse of the Evil Eye. This spear was once named the Spear of Pissar, Areadbhair, Ibar Alai Fhidbaidha. It was named Gáe Bolg when given to me. It shall be rechristened when thrown from me. I name this weapon, Lúin Celtchair in honor of my father's past deeds. May it slay the target I have marked as it had for Lugh's slaying of the Smiter.​


Added DiffLines:

* NoNeedForNames: The Old Man says that his people did not use names since everyone knew each other.


* BerserkButton: ''Do not call Taylor's servants projections''. While she never loses her temper, she ends up ripping her front door off its hinges when Armsmaster says this.

Added DiffLines:

* SoProudOfYou: Hero tells Miss Militia he is proud of her.

Added DiffLines:

* DareToBeBadass: [[DefiedTrope Nope!]] When Taylor showed up to the heroes who were about to fight against Leviathan, she outright told them to go home, back to their families and loved ones, and leave the battle to her and the Heroic Spirits she brought with her.


Added DiffLines:

* IAmNotLeftHanded: The Endbringers, of all things, were severely holding back against the capes of Earth Bet. When Taylor and the Servants entered the mix, they decided to stop sandbagging.

Added DiffLines:

* NamedByDemocracy: The media quickly calls Taylor Simulacrum due to thinking her Servants are her projections.


Added DiffLines:

* PowerMisidentification: Most of the Earth Bet inhabitants think that Taylor's power is to create projections, beings from her imagination, rather than her actually summoning Heroic Spirits as her Servants.


* DoorStopper: Relatively speaking, but chapter five is thirty one thousand words in length. For reference, the longest chapter prior to this one was about 6k words in length. Chapter 10 as well earns this title.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Blasto does not understand why Taylor has her Servants stop disasters and save people, saying if he was in her place, he would have simply retreated to Chaldea's world and left Earth Bet to its fate. When Taylor says it is because Earth Bet is her father's world, Blasto says just bring him to Chaldea's world.


Added DiffLines:

* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: Blasto is convinced that it is inevitable that Earth Bet will eventually experience an apocalypse, so he believes nothing matters except trying to survive or escape Earth Bet. He believes that heroism doesn't matter because people can't change for the better.


Added DiffLines:

* WhenTreesAttack: Blasto creates a huge tree that grows out of control and attacks people. Paul Bunyan shows up to cut it down to size.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Shortly after Hero is summoned, he decides to wander the city. Since he was a well respected Cape who was killed, he causes pandemonium as he gets swarmed by citizens and reporters. Taylor rescues him by using a PerceptionFilter spell to escape their notice and points out they will have to slowly ease him back into the public eye.


* ICantSenseTheirPresence: For some reason, none of the Capes with mind reading, empathic, or clairvoyant powers can detect Taylor, though they can detect her Servants.



* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Jack the Ripper randomly stabs Taylor in the side. She just laughs it off.



* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Taylor and her Servants take down several S-Class threats within a week of arriving on Bet.

Added DiffLines:

* KeepTheReward: Taylor and her Servants travel around the world capturing or killing criminals and other threats.

* BackFromTheDead: Technically, all Servants are this, but later, Taylor manages to summon Earth Bet's deceased Tinker known as Hero as a Caster.



* FishOutOfWater: Hero's knowledge of being a Heroic Spirit is incomplete, so he's completely confused by his new life as a Servant and needs to have everything explained to him.



** In a Meta Sense, Taylor went through the WHOLE story of Fate/Grand Order up to Epic of Remnant BEFORE returning to Earth Bet, with no one else aware of it, since only a few hours passed by there while Taylor was 3 whole years in Chaldea.
