* Koyanskaya appearing in each Lostbelt seems to be to give Chaldea a recurring enemy since the other disciples of the Foreign God only appear sporadically at first. Then you learn she needs to collect something from each Lostbelt to achieve her goals, and it starts making sense - given Lostbelts Chaldea visits tend to have short expiration dates, she needs to grab something from there immediately or lose her chance forever.


* When Gorgon told Mash and Gudao to leave, Mash told Gudao: "But Gorgon is A-" (Avenger or Ana). Fast forward to the anime where Ana's voice was used with Gordon's, and Mash may have felt Ana was pretending not to be there. Gudao stopped her though.

** At a gance Saint Martha appears better suited for the Caster class: she's a canonized nun firing [[HolyHandGrenade holy blasts]] from a MagicStaff, has a QAAAB deck, and has good utility as a SupportPartyMember. However, she's also a DragonRider (courtesy of the dragon Tarasque), a very rare skill that requires another skill aside from Riding to preform. This is likely more than enough to qualify her as a Rider.

** Speaking of Tiamat, take a good look at her [[MsFanservice "Femme Fatale"]] form. [[StatuesqueStunner An amazing body perfect for attracting mates,]] [[HartmanHips wide hips well suited for giving birth,]] [[BoobsOfSteel and ample breasts ideal for nursing large amounts of offspring;]] she's the Primordial Mother, and her body is built to reflect that.

* Kirschtaria's attacks in the game are identical to those used by the Phantasy Trees. If you recall his magecraft is the same as the Animusphere Families who focus on astronomy and space which is where the Phantasy Trees came from. When the Alien God descends it adds even more context.

* Though still a bit hotheaded, the summer version of Jeanne d'Arc Alter is significantly more laid-back and even playful compared to her Avenger incarnation. They explicitly state it's because she is no longer an Avenger. This implies that Avenger Jeanne Alter is not, as it might initially seem, simply an extreme case of a {{Tsundere}}, nor that that is how she actually wants to be. Instead, it's her class that's causing the behavior. In other words, she doesn't actually enjoy being angry and kinda bitchy to people all the time, she got stuck against her will with a class that makes her miserable and basically forces her to be.

** In Yu's Interlude she is shown to be incompetent at using Servants with them being weak when she tries. However if you consider her nature it makes sense, she is a Zhenren modeled after The True Ancestors which created the Dead Apostles. Dead Apostles are considered an Antithesis to Heroic Spirits which leads to different timelines of dominance and her nature inadvertently rejects their existence.

** Voyager being a Foreigner was a rather odd choice of class given that other members of the class were all EldritchAbomination who’s mere existence could shatter the minds of those who see them. By then again, much of H.P. Lovecrafts work involved the unknown and the fear of the unknown, particularly the ocean. And what’s the something Mankind doesn’t know about yet? The Deep Ocean and Space, because despite how much we know about the stars and how they work, the existence of other planets that could support life, there is still much we do not know, things that would make people afraid. Especially back when Voyager was first sent into space.

** While it's normal in most games for characters to have odd hairstyles and colors, Edmond Dantes seems abit weird. He's young, and yet his hair is stark white. Normally hair follicles turn white with old age or extreme amounts of stress, because the pigments gradually die out either way. However, it's quite fitting in the latter portion and it's even a case of ShownTheirWork. Dantes suffered in the [[HellholePrison Chateau d'If]] for 14 years, and in the book, he made one of the people who sent him there suffer the same level of imprisonment as he did, which turned their hair white! It would be fitting for Dantes for his hair to be this color to mirror what happened to him!

** In the Eternal Madness Empire: Septem, we face Flauros. Flauros is a demon who gives true answers of all things past, present and future, and who gladly speaks of divinity, creation of the world, other fallen angels and himself, and who also commands fire to burn his foes. However, unless compelled to stand within a circle, he will lie and betray his summoner. As most people know, Lev Lainur was really Flauros in disguise. He betrayed essentially all of Chaldea, causing the firey explosion that killed most of the Masters and seeks to cause the incineration of humanity. Furthermore, he does give true answers on the Pillars plans. The period we fight him in is also fitting, as Septem is focused on the time of Nero's rule over Rome, in which one of the biggest things that occurred was the Great Fire of Rome.
** In The Sealed Ends of the Four Seas: Okeanos, we face Forneus. He focuses on giving men a good name, and makes them be loved by their friends and foes, and it's also depicted as a giant sea monster. During the chapter, Jason is focused on becoming a God and developing an empire, a feat that Medea Lily leads him on with. And of course, a demon depicted as a sea monster is fitting as a boss for the sea based chapter.

*** Although not fought or mentioned, it's worth noting that both times you fight Solomon-possessed-by-Goetia, Goetia doesn't use any of Solomon's special attacks or even Noble Phantasm. Instead, he uses an "Incineration Ritual" like the other pillars, often followed up by the pillar's name. What does he use against you? "Incineration Ritual: Beleth". It's worth noting that Goetia-As-Solomon's disposition changes with whom they speak to, with different pillars taking charge. For an unseen pillar who possesses Solomon when fighting you, who does Beleth correspond to...? Well, it's obvious: ''The Player and the Main Character''. Both fights involve you using your servants to fight while Solomon is surrounded by Demon Pillars, mimicking you! His debuffs can be seen as similar to the effects of Mystic Codes! As well, Beleth is a demon king of hell who was the first one invoked by Noah's Son, Ham, after the Biblical Flood, and that Beleth must be summoned with proper rituals or compelled into loyalty by paying respect to him, and in return, Beleth can grant the love of all the men and women he is compelled to grant until the summoner is satisfied. Out of all the Goetic Demons, Beleth is the most qualified to be the demon one who fights the Last Master of Humanity, who commands all sorts of men and women as Servants and who grants them respect and earns their loyalty!

** Thankfully this turns out to be a bluff in order to intimidate Chaldea. However, we actually learn that it's Beast I Goetia possessing the dead corpse of Solomon, and it's basically immortal until the real Solomon sacrifices himself and his existence in the throne to even make him vulnerable.

Added DiffLines:

** Jason was the ArcVillain of the Okeanos chapter, and most of the player's allies in that chapter are part of the Archer class. Thanks to his plans ultimately failing thanks in large part to the efforts of said archers, it's only natural that he is in the class that archers have an advantage against.


*** In the second Guga Guga event, we face Andras. He's described as sowing discontent, and teaches those he favors to kill their enemies, masters, and servants. While Hijitaka doesn't specialize in the field of sowing discontent, his reputation as a TortureTechnician to get answers usually led to the deaths of those he got information about.

** Cu Alter and Jeanne Alter are both Five Stars, with Cu's alts all being Three Stars and Jeanne's being also Five Star. As both Orleans and America show us, both of these Servants are not natural, they were created by someone else (Giles and Medb) wishing for their own version of the person. They are high rarity because they are technically beings not supposed to exist, and so are indeed rare to find.

** Atalante Alter's form is created by using Agrius Metamorphosis to become a Berserker class Servant. Unlike the others, she is essentially turning into another class through a Noble Phantasm, so she isn't a separate being from the regular Atalante in terms of her Alter form. Furthermore, her Alter title is more of a title since in ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'', she was essentially in a powered up form instead.

*** Another way to look at the triangle is this way; Riders beat Casters because the Rider class inherently has Magic Resistance, making it easy for them to plow right into their bases and take them out head on. Casters beating Assassins because most Casters have Territory Creation, allowing them to create Bounded Fields that warn them if intruders are entering, and while some Assassins may bypass it, Casters have enough tools to protect themselves. Assassins beat Riders because Assassins are best at killing the Master, if a Rider charges out to battle, what can the merely Human Master do against an Assassin?



** Chrion being Four Star rarity seems odd when you consider he's arguably the most famous Centaur in mythology, and trained many great heroes like Heracles and Achillies. However, given how famous ''all'' of his students became, and how they essentially became heroes known forever in history and culture, it makes sense why Chiron would be beyond several of them in rarity; he's OvershadowedByAwesome by his students (which he himself is happy with).



** Why does Li Shuwen use three strikes for his NP when fighting against the party in SIN when his playable version just has the one? This one's from an AlternateTimeline where the emperor and their needs are prioritized above everything else, especially with the several centuries of indoctrination of the emperor's teachings. Of course, he doesn't care about how many hits he does when the entire nation and emperor's wellbeing is at stake!

** Cursed Arm Hassan is the lowest rarity of the Hassan characters, despite being gameplay wise arguably the best that isn't First Hassan. His time as the Old Man in the Mountain was stated to be the most forgettable one of them all, naturally his fame and status is beyond all the others, reflecting his status as a measly one-star despite being gameplay wise good.



** Altria's Saber and Lancer alts are both Five Star rarity Servants, while the Alter variants are Four Star rarity despite being considered better gameplay wise. However, given the nature of the Alter form; this makes sense. The Alter form is a perversion of the Heroic Spirits original being by essentially causing them to change alignments, even if they still have the same beliefs overall. Their essentially a EvilKnockoff of the original Heroic Spirit that normally shouldn't exist, meaning that they are a lower rarity because they are a "less pure" variation of the Heroic Spirit summoned.
*** Notably this is averted for Cu Alter, Jeanne Alter, Atalante Alter, and Emiya Alter, but this makes sense because these are all Alter forms created by means that are not the same as Altria. Cu and Jeanne Alter are Servants created by someone wishing for their ideal version of the Heroic Spirit, thus creating a new being that is technically separated from their original being (Cu's Berserker is different from Cu Alter's Berserker class, and Jeanne is too pure to be corrupted). Emiya Alter is an alternate universe version of him that became corrupted by the experiences he had in combination with embracing his Counter Guarding role in a way that means he became a twisted form of his normal self, so he essentially is the ''VideoGame/FateExtra'' Emiya (Nameless) but an Alter one. As for Atalante, her Alter form is created by using Agrius Metamorphosis to become a Berserker class Servant. Unlike the others, she is essentially turning into another class through a Noble Phantasm, so she isn't a separate being from the regular Atalante in terms of her Alter form. Furthermore, her Alter title is more of a title since in ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'', she was essentially in a powered up form instead. Interestingly enough, but Emiya Alter and Atalante Alter are the same rarity as their normal forms, showing that they are not separate beings like Cu and Jeanne, which makes sense given they both are not unique beings.

Emiya Alter is an alternate universe the same rarity as his normal form, a Four Star Servant. As the ''CCC'' event shows us though, Emiya Alter is implied to be a version of him that became corrupted by the experiences he had in combination with embracing his Counter Guarding role in a way that means he became a twisted form of his normal self, so he essentially Emiya who is from the ''VideoGame/FateExtra'' setting, and became changed by what he did there. He is a twisted form of Emiya, but he's an Emiya (Nameless) but an Alter one. As for Atalante, her Alter from a different universe, not the same as ours.
