* FanNickname: Plenty. The main ones are the various character teams that have organised: Team Arrogance (Sierra Bartholomei and her allies/minions, the villains), Team Ignorance (Shirou and most of the surviving Fate/Stay Night heroes; also referred to as the 'Joostis League' on occasion, after Shirou's 'Hero of Joostis'), Team Nobunaga (headed by Oda Nobunaga, who has managed to start summoning his own Servants), Team Zouken (Zouken Matou and his minions), and Team Switcheroo (most Servants that don't fall into the above).

* ActionGirl: Almost all of the female Servants (save Iseult). Most of the female Mages. The (arguably) most powerful Magus on the site/main villain, Sierra, is also female.
* AlternateContinuity: The timeline follows the Fate route, but with the Magus Wars (an original event) picking up soon after and reaching Fuyuki a year-and-a-half after the route finished. The events of [[{{VisualNovel/Fate Hollow Ataraxia}} Fate/Hollow Ataraxia]] are confirmed to have occurred, but exactly how it fits in isn't yet clear.
** Canon has stated that a group wished to bring back the Grail and a conflict similar to the Grail Wars erupted. Whether this is the Magus War as far as site canon goes is still up for grabs.
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Most Servants receive this by default, which is justified as many of their myths and stories have been misrepresented over the course of sometimes thousands of years. Canon characters occasionally run into this, but generally speaking they're as they were in the Visual Novel, plus any character development they received.
* AnyoneCanDie: Even the main characters from canon are not spared from this fate.
* {{Calling Your Attacks}}: Servants and Masters both. Most Servants need to call the name of their Noble Phantasm in order to activate it[[note]]There are exceptions, particularly with passive support Noble Phantasms[[/note]], and Masters need to utilise spoken arias to invoke Thaumaturgical spells.
* GenderBender: As per Nasuverse standards, Arturia and Nero are both genderbent versions of their legend.

* LadyOfWar: Again, most of the female Servants.
* [[KingArthur Matter of Britain]]: Arthurian characters are common around the forum. The staff have lost count of how many have been created and/or mused on by the members.
** The current Arthurian character count sits at five: Arthur/Arturia, Mordred, and Gawain (all Sabers), Iseult of Ireland (Caster), and Lancelot (Berserker).

* CloudCuckooland: Deranged, odd things come from everyone. Whether you're a member, a staffer, or a guest... You won't be spared from the insanity.
* DeadpanSnarker: Shirou.
* DoubleEntendre: Many, many times.
** [[ItMakesSenseInContext "She swallows everything I give her."]]: - Shirou, talking about Arturia's BigEater status.

* JerkAss: Shirou in the "Cbox RP" is one. The Jerkass persona is, of course, recognized by a SuperDeformed avatar.
** Par for the course, Gilgamesh also acts this way to everyone but Arturia; he just claims to own her.
*** Arturia will also have shades of this, usually during short bouts of snark towards Gilgamesh.
*** Rin as well.

* RunningGag: Medea is almost always stabbed in the cbox. Usually by Rin. Also, mention of the word "skewered" in any context means the display of CG images of [[http://i672.photobucket.com/albums/vv89/AkaRequiem/FSN%20CGs/MedeaCG1.png Medea being skewered by Gilgamesh's Gate of Babylon.]]

Has a [[MagusWarsCharacters Character Page]]. The site chatbox serves as both an in-character chatbox and a community chatbox. Most of the time, in-character events will be short, usually involving dialogue between characters that may or may not be likely to happen in roleplay.

* {{I Know Your True Name}}: The key to defeating a Servant is to determine their identity. If you know who they are, you can figure out their strengths, weaknesses, how to beat them, and possibly even their Noble Phantasm.

* {{Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome}}: [[spoiler: Illyasviel von Einzbern's hormunculus body deteriorated roughly a year after the end of Fate/Stay Night, resulting in her death. She is nowhere to be found as a result (unless you count "Announcer Ilya" in the site's (non-canon) Carnival Phantasm section.)]]
* {{Zombie Apocalypse}}: The first major plot event, the [[http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/Dead_Apostle Dead Apostle]] Invasion of the nearby Fukusaki Village. Although it's more of a Zombie-Vampire Apocalypse than a regular Zombie Apocalypse.

** Lots of others, particularly due to the cbox wordfilters replacing normal names with silly equivalents. Hercules is The Friendly Giant, Gilgamesh is Golden Boy, Perseus is Trollseus, the Gate of Babylon is Sword Spam, Gae Bolg is Gay Bulge[[hottip:*:Which is how it's pronounced in the English dub of Fate/Stay Night]], and Rho Aias, Hrunting and Enuma Elish's nicknames can only be read on the adult version of this page.

* {{Retcon}}: A number Nasuverse concepts have been retconned or removed outright to allow for more freedom, such as the Assassin class no longer being restricted to the Assassins that have taken the mantle of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hassan-i_Sabbah 'Hassan-i Sabbah']]. The largest of these retcons, however, is what amounts to ignoring just about everything in the Nasuverse that does not directly affect the Fate series, mostly for the purpose of simplifying the site and making it more accessible to those unfamiliar with the Nasuverse.
