*** ''Fate/stay night'' (along with ''hollow ataraxia'') and ''Fate/Zero'') are thought to be in continuity with each other, but, as implied in the preface of the first volume of ''Zero'' and confirmed in the magazine TYPE-MOON Ace Vol. 10, they are slightly parallel worlds, where something ''like'' the events of ''Zero'' happened in ''stay night'', but perhaps not precisely as described (though the broad details match up easily enough). It is worth noting that this continuity can branch a little bit, depending on player choices in ''F/SN''; the animated adaptations of ''F/SN'' showcase each of the major routes, and the ''Zero'' animated adaptation is much more obviously in direct continuity with the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' and ''Heaven's Feel'' adaptations (all being from the same studio).

Added DiffLines:

* VoidBetweenTheWorlds: The Imaginary Number Space, first mentioned in ''Fate/Extra CCC'' is a dimension that lies outside time and space. The Far Side of The Moon and the Grand Time Temple both lies here. The "between the worlds" part is emphasized in ''Fate/Grand Order'' as it is only the way to get in and out of Lostbelts which are otherwise not possible due to the impassable Cloud Wall.


** ''Anime/FateGrandOrderAbsoluteDemonicFrontBabylonia'': An anime adaptation of the game's seventh chapter by [=CloverWorks=].



* A Light Novel series by Makoto Sanda, starring Waver Velvet and his assistant, Gray, going around the world solving mysteries before the events of the Fifth Holy Grail War. Features significant CharacterOverlap with each novel featuring a version of a certain character in the ''Fate/stay night'' timeline. Received a manga adaptation on October 2017.

* An odd branch as it not only is more of a multimedia mix with manga, drama [=CDs=], and novels, it focuses on Hibiki Hibino and Chikagi Katsuragi, the official representatives of Type-Moon's (now defunct) mobile-only site, and their work at Ahnenerbe, the café that pops up in other Type-Moon works.

Added DiffLines:

* CosmicMotifs: As per the company title, the moon permeates the setting through Crimson Moon as the progenitor of rampant vampirism and the Moon Cell as both the ultimate wish granter and savior of humanity. Its appearance only at night helps emphasize the hidden world under which most works operate.
* CrypticBackgroundReference: Each work is littered with references to mysterious happenings going on elsewhere or in the past, with the manuals usually just throwing more fuel onto that fire by referring to even more mysterious and vague elements of this universe.

Added DiffLines:

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: The franchise is notorious for this. Any non-Japanese and non-Heroic Spirit character would end up with strange names ranging from simply two English words put together to something ridiculous.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceDayDeadlyNight: A recurring theme:
** In general, most of the actions happened at night, for different reasons: in ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' because the antagonists are dangerous spirits or magicians seeking to uphold the {{Masquerade}}, in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' because it's vampires, and in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' along with its adaptations because of the nature of Holy Grail War, which waged in secret from the populace or public.

Added DiffLines:

* ''The Room of the April Witch''


Added DiffLines:

'''''The Room of the April Witch'''''
* A short story written by Meteo Hoshizora and illustrated by Chihiro Aikura, about a witch named April, who only opens her house's door on April 1st once in a year. Though originally released for TYPE-MOON's April Fools' Day joke on 2011, there are no comedic elements in this story. Later had a booklet and Drama CD released, with the latter being narrated by Creator/MaayaSakamoto.


* ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', an eroge visual novel. Features TheVerse's ''[[NamesTheSame other]]'' Shiki, Shiki Tohno, going back to his old family mansion after he was kicked out at eight years old. He suffered a childhood accident which granted his eyes [[MagicalEye strange abilities]], and his own past is rather muddled, as well. Has a manga and an anime adaption, complete with BleachedUnderpants[[note]]The anime and manga adaptations of ''Tsukihime'' are the only Nasuverse adaptations to retain the love scene between the story's couple -in this case between Shiki and Arcuied- instead just toning it down to non-pornographic levels[[/note]].

Hilarious in Hindsight because one of the "movies" announced, one based on the (then book only) epilogue for the movie series of Kara no Kyoukai, was eventually done and released for real.

** The [[Literature/FateStrangeFake Escardos Clan]], one of the oldest magus lineages, had been on the decline for a few centuries, desperately trying to improve their dwindling magic circuits. The current heir, Flat, was an anomaly, being born with incredible potential and magic circuits. Though as he grew up, it became clear that he was a [[Cloudcuckoolander]] lacking the proper attitude to become a successful mage, to the point where his parents disowned him.
