  • Shirou laying down the law with the tenants, making it clear that he is not going to be their punching bag.
  • Shirou's Curb-Stomp Battle with Motoko. He didn't use an ounce of magic, just skill.
  • Shirou versus the Aoyama family guards. Even better? He did it without killing anyone and even deliberately took some blows that would have hit someone else if he had dodged.
    The outer wall exploded in a shower of splinters and the body of the instructor who had left just moment earlier flew in from outside, slamming against the elder and sending both crashing on the wall behind in an almost comical fashion.

    With the exception of Motoko and Tsuruko, who was hiding her broad smile behind her sleeve, everyone stood and reached for their weapons. Countless hisses accompanied an equal number of weapons unsheathing.

    In his hand was the familiar form of Shisui, clad in a white satchel ripped in various places. His black shirt was cut on the chest, a faint line of blood dribbling down his skin, hinting to a barely avoided blow.

  • Crimson Red Vermillion Tsuruko vs Shirou using Archer's arm.
  • Shirou and Rider foiling Kyoko's plans. To elaborate, Kyoko kidnaps Ilya, then rounds up the Hinatasou tenants with the intent of having them all killed. While Shirou goes to rescue Ilya, Rider slaughters the mercenaries that are about to kill the tenants. Kyoko flees and tries to order Ilya's death just to deny Shirou a total victory, only to find out that he's already killed the rest of the mercenaries and rescued her. Kyoko makes impotent threats, and Shirou, without raising his voice, responds in kind before hanging up on her.
