    In General 
  • Quite a few of the Servant birthday quotes have the potential to be funny.
    • Mata Hari: Happy birthday! Can you drink alcohol?
    • Andersen: Happy birthday~ Can you buy me a pint?
    • Robin Hood: Happy birthday. I don't have a present, but please bear with this smile.
    • Altera: *visibly uncomfortable* Master... Is today... your birthd... ... Forget it.
    • Heracles tries to give you a smile and is obviously struggling with it, but still is doing his best for the player.
    • At higher bond levels Gilgamesh chastises you because you don't tell him 7 days in advance. Just what the hell did he want to plan?
    • Bunyan makes you a cake... but eats it before she has a chance to give it to you.
    • Tamamo is surprised that you have a birthday, presumably for reasons.
  • Some Servants' interactions in My Room are quite funny.
    • Angra Mainyu has some funny lines that lean on the fourth wall, with him complaining about the player actually using him in battle and telling them to roll a better Servant, or telling them to hurry up, go outside, and spend some stamina.
      Angra Mainyu: "Aah… I’m beat… How many times have I died already… isn’t it hard for you too? Hurry up, pull a better Servant and make your life easier already."
      Angra Mainyu: "Bo-ring. Oi, will you just go outside already please. Use your stamina, c’mon."
    • Jeanne Alter is shocked at how her senpai (the original Avenger), Angra Mainyu, is ridiculously weak.
    • Iskander is taken aback by Lancer Altria (Alter), especially her gigantic boobs, and blames it on his drinking.
    • Kid Gil doesn't want to start a ruckus with his adult self so he goes to hide.
    • Medea Lily is unnerved by her adult form's malevolent stare and adult Medea compliments her Lily counterpart as if she's another person.
    • Robin Hood wants to hunt Tamamo for her fluffy tail. That, or he still has a grudge after what happened in CCC (In short, he became target practice for a Groin Attack technique Tamamo came up with in that game).
    • Nero and Bathory want to start an idol competition. Nero also still considers Tamamo a rival (both being playable characters from EXTRA). It's Hilarious in Hindsight now that she and Tamamo are the faction leaders for Fate/Extella.
    • FSN!Cu is annoyed with EMIYA because an Archer like him fights on the frontline. Likewise, EMIYA asks you not to put him in a party with "that blue Lancer" and "that golden Archer". The latter joke's funny factor increases twofold with Ishtar (another golden Archer, using Rin as her host body) and Parvati (another blue Lancer, possessing Sakura's body). Naturally, fans go along with it.
    • Void Shiki comments on Shiki's grumpiness like a big sister complaining about her little sister. Ryougi's reaction to Void Shiki is disbelief at seeing another her and blames it on hallucinations brought on by overworking.
    • Dantes is uncharacteristically happy seeing a writer Servant (being a literary character), ordering coffee for them.
    • Beowulf mentions to Siegfried or Martha that despite dragons tasting good, he doesn't like them very much.
    • Ozymandias tells Tamamo to call him "older brother" because they're both avatars of the sun. He thinks Karna, Gawain and Quetz are pharaohs because they also have such a powerful connection with the sun.
    • Illya says when she met Blackbeard in Chaldea's hallway, he fainted while babbling unintelligible words (maybe he's shocked at seeing a true loli magical girl).
    • Chloe panics at seeing a "mama-like" person (Dress of Heaven) strutting around with an exposed chest.
    • King Hassan's remarks for the other Hassans are to ask them if their choices meant anything... before flatly asking for their heads. This is especially funny because of his Kirei voice.
    • Arthur is confused by Altria and Merlin in this world because of their voice and genders. Regarding Mordred, he remarks that this world's Mordred is cute before reminiscing about the Mordred of his world. Imagine our Mordred's reaction.
    • Musashi's new line for Raikou is her wondering about Raikou's swordsmanship as the strongest mystery killer... before being mesmerized by the size of her breasts.
      "What... an... amazing size."
    • Okita meets Chacha and then...
      "So you were Nobu's niece. Oh, your face does look the—Eh? "So you're the always-feeble Saber-With-Shit-Stats"? Who the heck told you such things?! Eh? Nobu did? Then I'll kill her!"
    • Santa Altria Alter threatening to make dragon steak out of Halloween Elisabeth Bathory.
    • Enkidu's first reaction to seeing Ishtar is to look for something to throw at her.
    • Achilles has been somewhat happy to have his rival Hektor as an ally, only to take back his words after Hektor threw rocks at him. And it hurts him. Considering his Nigh-Invulnerability makes it so he can only be hurt by divine contructs or Servants with Divinity (which both Hektor and the rocks are not), Fridge Logic ensues.
    • Sakamoto Ryouma takes pleasure in having Okita on the same side. Oryo-san, however...
    Oryo-san: This one looks weak.
    Ryouma: Hey, stop it!
    • Speaking of Okita, she tries to become a bossy Saber senpai for Okita Alter, only to find out that Alter is not a Saber, can shoot beams, and doesn't suffer from Weak Constitution, which causes Okita to whine in envy.
    • Swimsuit Jeanne Alter tries to order Swimsuit Altria Alter around in the most humiliating way possible. The latter isn't impressed and opts to Excaliblast the former's hotel room instead.
    • Swimsuit Medb brags about getting a summer version to Scathach and pities her for not getting hers - Scathach, who was one of the first batch of summer Servants. Scathach understandably just walks away while Medb is still bragging.
    • Qin Shi Huang names mercury as what he likes the most, considering it a beautiful symbol of immortality fitting of an emperor. What he hates, though? Also mercury. Because he tried drinking some once and turns out it tastes like crap and is bad for your health.
    • Before his True Name is revealed, the Archer of Shinjuku/James Moriarty only replies with the word deerstalkers when being asked about what he hates the most. However, after his True Name's revealed, he directly points out he hates Sherlock Holmes, and as for the reason...
    Moriarty: Things that I dislike? Sherlock, of course. Damn you, Holmes! Why am I stuck with a middle-aged body whilst you get to be a handsome young man!? Absolutely unforgivable!
    • When Paris meets Achilles, he apologizes to the latter for shooting his heel. Achilles however feels awkward looking at Paris' face and simply looks away. Paris gets angry and demands to be taken seriously.
    • Similar to the above, Sanson cannot look directly at Charlotte Corday when they meet again as Servants. It is awkward for him to meet the other woman he beheaded besides Marie, after all.
  • Some interactions of Servants' NP and Craft Essences have the potential to be game-breaking and funny. Arash, for example. Equip him with the Necromancer CE that grants a chance to resurrect in case of death, use his NP that deals tremendous damage for the price of self-sacrifice, then the CE effects kick in. Use your Command Spell to recharge Arash's NP gauge, use his NP, and the CE effects kick in. Rinse and repeat. Long story short, you can literally nuke enemies with Arash, potentially 4 times in a battle.
  • The usual flavor text for the skill Mental Pollution is that the madness of the Servant will hinder mind interfering spells, at the cost of the Servant turning into a raving lunatic who can't be understood beside those with the same level of madness. The closest we see the second effect in prior canon is between Gilles and his Master in Fate/Zero, but here we can see those stat sheets come to work.
    Gilles: Jeannejeannejeannejeanne...!
    Phantom of the Opera: Christinechristinechristinechristine...!
  • Different Servants hold different attitudes towards the Holy Grail. Some of them value its ability to grant its user's wishes, some act indifferent to it as if it's nonexistent, a few of them want to destroy it, and some want to use it for things it's not intended to be used for. Notable comical examples include:
  • Bond Craft Essences:
    • All of the Max Bond Craft Essences are accompanied by a short story about the Servant they are for. Most are melancholy, heartwarming, heroic, or dramatic. And then you get to Shakespeare's CE, "Really Convenient", which just has an enthusiastic rant about how typewriters are the best thing ever... and then the keys get stuck.
    • Mysterious Heroine X's Bond CE is literally her hit list. Not only does she still aim to eliminate Saber-faces like Altria and Nero, her fanatical hatred of Sabers has led to her targeting non-Saber-faces like Ryougi and Siegfried. In the description, it's revealed she's been wandering around the halls of Chaldea, muttering about elimination of Sabers, and listening to recordings of her Madness Mantra to kill all Sabers while sleeping. What makes this even more hilarious is Shiki's file is stamped with Failure, instead of Top Secret.
    • Fergus's Bond CE description has him explain what the potion in his Craft Essence artwork is and why he wants to make sure a minor doesn't drink it. It's a potion that gives incredible vitality to those who pass the luck check and to those who don't... bad things happen. Turns out you drank it.
    • Medea Lily's Bond CE description has a short story where she reads an ordinary cookbook and is naive enough to believe its claims that candy will make people not angry or sad, and the reason people are fighting is because there just isn't enough sweet food for everyone. So she decides to create an infinite supply of pancakes... with a Demon Pillar as the main ingredient.
    • Astolfo's CE description starts out with an explanation of what a Hippogriff is... before it diverges into Astolfo having fun with an exasperated Hippogriff. It's basically a tsukkomi and boke routine between them.
    • Swimsuit Kiyohime's Bond CE artwork is writing in the sand. It reads:
      "I love you I love you I love you I love you love love ahh ahh Master Master Master Master ahhhhhh..."
    • Gawain's CE profile is a narrative from the perspective of Gringolet, Gawain's horse. And turns out, his horse is also a trashtalker. He even calls Gawain a gorilla. Not only that, it's possible that the horse doesn't even remember Gawain's name.
    • Swimsuit Saber Alter's bond CE is her mop as the Sword of Selection, Caliburn.
    • After many depressing Bond Craft Essences from Servants from the first Lostbelt, Ivan's Bond CE, The Library of Ivan the Terrible, ends with him asking the hundred Ruble question:
      "What do you mean it is missing after we have collected so many of them!? What are the intellectuals doing!?"
    • Half of Red Hare's CE description is devoted to him obsessing over carrots and how delicious they are.
  • Fate/Grand Order Material contains some good laughs:
    • It turns out, of all the Knights of the Round Table, Altria can't deal with Tristan the most because she doesn't know whether he's sleeping or awake. The Halloween 2016 event showed that neither can Lancelot or Cleopatra.
    • Medea's skill "Golden Fleece" can heal her in-game. The reason? Because it's so fluffy! Demonstrated in this fancomic, and also described in the in-game skill description (making it one of the only skills with Flavor Text unrelated to its effect).
    • Jeanne is actually overjoyed by Jeanne Alter's existence and considers her a brash little sister.
    • Martha wants to punch Mephistopheles because he looks like a demon.
    • Heroine X's wish for the Grail is the destruction of all other Sabers. Or at least get them to change their class name to Attacker or Swordsman or something like that. Also she undoes the locks on your Saber cards when you're not looking.
    • The explanation of Fionn's "Fin-tan Finnygas" Noble Phantasm. It's oil from the salmon of knowledge. He has salmon fat on his thumb and he becomes really smart when he licks it. Despite salmon fat including a lot of DHA which is said to improve concentration, it doesn't really evoke a dignified image, does it?
    • Angra Mainyu is jealous of Dantes because he flies around, has a cool coat and shoots black fire, while he has to walk around half-naked. He also says he knew that Medusa had the potential to be an Avenger "since 2005, to be precise" but she's scarier than he thought she'd be.
    • There's unused concept art for Angra Mainyu's third Ascensions. One of them is just him wearing a cardboard box.
    • The description for Nero Bride's skills claims she could use all her buffs simultaneously on herself to turn into a Super Bridejin.
    • Concept art for Edison's rainbow chest beam has poor Arash be the test dummy for it.
    • Irisviel's comments:
      to Illya: sighted > smile > hug (0.5 seconds)
      to Ko-Gil or Alex: "How cute! ...Wait, what did you say your names were, again?"
    • Da Vinci apparently has a penchant for strolling around naked after she's taken a bath, because she's not entirely aware of herself as a young woman.
    • Although Caster Gil insists that he has no right to talk to Enkidu, he doesn't really stick to that statement, because Enkidu pesters him instead.
      "You're always telling me to take a rest. I guess a little rest is fine... wait wait! You cannot find polar bears in the south pole!"
    • Chacha's lines towards people she finds quirky seem fine. But she always seems more interested in expressing how much she hates the Tokugawa (especially Ieyasu) and wants everything about Tokugawa to go burn or die.
  • One of Illya's Art attack animations is to just throw Ruby at the enemy, which then proceeds to whack the enemy with itself.
  • Chloe refuses to strip for her Master when you ascend her and keeps reprimanding you for expecting her to wear less with each stage (During her final ascension, she does it anyway, apparently having given in.)
  • Jaguarman renamed all her skills. Blessing of the Jaguar becomes Jaguar Punch, a destructive power. Monstrous Strength becomes Jaguar Kick, another destructive power. Jaw of the Dark Jungle becomes Jaguar Eye, but this is a beam power. Then there's Ishtar's comment on her:
    "JAGUAMURA-sensei!"
  • Romulus's default pose is ridiculous. It definitely gives him the Large Ham kinda feel. He looks like he's T posing for dominance.
  • Chacha's animations. She falls down because she laughs too hard or when trying to activate a skill.
  • BB's animations. Her Buster attack is "Sakura Beam!" and she's pouring a "Holy Cup" for her extra attack! And then there's her Noble Phantasm. It has to be seen to be believed. Even better, if you look closely, inside the giant syringe are ascension materials.
  • Bathory's new NP sometimes has her screaming "HOEEE~~?", like she's not ready to use her NP yet.
  • Mash's "Cha-ching! [...]" line when you claim Saint Quartz Fragments seems to imply that she plays with said fragments like they're toys. Also, in the end, she insists she totally didn't play with important resources.
    • The New Year 2018 patch adds a Moe moment with her where she hums the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and freaks out after realizing that you are looking at her.
  • Tamamo Cat's Noble Phantasm, Napping in the Dazzling Sunshine and Feasting. First, she summons a Mega Neko to attack her enemies. Then, as the damage animation finishes, the camera pans further left, showing her happily taking a nap. She then gets Stun status and health regeneration for the next two turns.
  • Sherlock Holmes' attack animations when used on...certain types of enemies will lead to a goldmine of out-of-context situations that would get him arrested multiple times over.
  • Osakabe-hime's idle animation is her dozing off, trying not to fall asleep on her feet.
    • Her summoning line is her introducing herself cheerfully before asking if she can just go home already.
    • In a Freeze-Frame Bonus during her 2nd Arts attack, it's revealed that the game she is playing on her tablet is Fate/Grand Order; from the looks of the title screen, she has yet to clear Solomon.
  • Caster of Okeanos' Noble Phantasm can turn certain enemies it hits into pigs for a Stun effect. What throws this into hilarity is the fact how several other Servants' NPs look when done on the pigs in question. From Serenity kissing the pig on the forehead to Archer Inferno throwing and spearing the pig, to Jeanne Alter skewering the pigs and roasting them in her bonfire, not to mention.. hmm... Medb's infamous NP.
  • Marugoshi Shinji-Kun. It's a mockery of Shinji for one with a muppet-like thing on the table, but the description goes further beyond. It's a dishwasher, and it drinks "brutish red stew" and "is a terrible adventurer". It also doesn't have a safety device. Also, it insists that it totally isn't based off a specific person. It's like BB and Drake conspired to have this program made just to spite Shinji.
  • One of Illya's interactions once she's grown comfortable with her master has her saying she likes head pats... then admitting she'd also like to have her master dry her hair after bathing, only to have an Oh, Crap! "Did I Just Say That Out Loud?" reaction. It's then immediately decided to be bathing-time, with Illya stating she has not yet prepared her heart for things like that.
  • A deer can sometimes pop out of nowhere during Ereshkigal's skill animation, causing her to freak out and desperately try to shoo it away.
  • In Fujino's My Room dialogue, she imagines a movie-esque Cool vs. Awesome fight between her and Mecha-Elizabeth. Why? Because Mecha-Elizabeth looks like a bridge.
  • While Gilgamesh's scolding for not telling him of your birthday is funny enough, getting him alone can give you the biggest one, particularly if you were not expecting him to drop from that particular banner:
    Gilgamesh: Fufuhahahahaha! Being able to summon me means that you've used up all of your luck, mongrel.
  • Gilgamesh's lvl 3 bond line may be interpreted as him - of all people - being jealous that you are contracting with other servants, so you better bring people as good as him along:
    Gilgamesh: You seem to have contracted with many other Heroic Spirits. Perhaps it cannot be helped for someone as mediocre as yourself, but… I don’t like it. At least, make sure you assemble individuals of the highest caliber if they are to stand by me.
  • Certain Servants' NP that involve tossing the enemy around or anything that moves the target like Xuanzang and Archer Inferno look absurd and hilarious at the same time when used against huge enemies like dragons and Demon Pillars. Quetzalcoatl's NP takes the cake as she piledrives things regardless of size, akin to "Sabin suplexed a train". It is also just strange for Assassin of Nightless Castle to casually dip a Cosmos Tree in her pot of poison. And speaking of suplex, using Astraea's NP on the tank enemy in SIN Lostbelt would be surreal.
  • The delivery on Okita's signature victory phrase just reeks of funny in a bit of Black Humor, seeing her happy Adorkable moment that she can still fight getting yanked with her Incurable Cough of Death. Just have a listen.
    Okita-san's big victorynote ! Yep, my body's all fine! I can still fight on—*COUGH!?*
  • Altria Alter's Bond Lines chronicled how the intimidating dark knight lady eventually became a closet hamburger junkie.
    Bond Level 3: Need more excitement. I'm hungry. Make something. Master. I'll eat anything. Huh? A hamburger?
    Bond Level 4: Master... This lowly Servant is shamefully asking... When are we gonna see some pancakes? You know, the king of junk food.
    Bond Level 5: Munch, munch... Munch, munch... Huh? How long have you been there? Want more? A dozen more? Fine. I'll forgive your rudeness. Sit over there. I might finally see you as my Master...
  • In his first ascension, Zhuge Liang/Lord El-Melloi II/Waver adjusts his glasses when he uses his skills even though he's not wearing them. He just gestures like he's pushing up a phantom pair of glasses. Pretty much anyone who's worn glasses has been there...
  • Cheiron's NP, while not comical per se, takes a clear page from Caliburn's book as it seems to hit crotches as well. Hitting weak spots indeed.
  • In general, Martha's tendency to flip into a rowdy punk-ish girl before correcting herself into a purdy saintly woman.
    (Begin battle): What? You want a piece of me? *ahem* No... that's too impulsive.
    (Victory): You're 10 Years Too Early! *ahem* No... The path is always rocky...
    (Level Up): Yes, yes!! *ahem* No. Thank you very much.
    (3rd Ascension): Well, this isn't so bad! *ahem* No. Thank you very much.
    (Bond Level 3): (sigh) So tired~! The way you used me, it's kind of rough, y'know... A—whuh!? Ah... um... *ahem* Tee hee, is there something wrong?
    (Disliked things): Huuuh?? The things I hate?? Ah, no... I wonder what it is, Master? The things I hate... there's no way I could possibly hate anything... (awkward Noblewoman's Laugh)
  • Sakamoto Ryouma has an extra NP sprite, which is that of Oryou making peace signs over his shoulder and saying, "Yay, peace peace," in her deadpan voice. Ryouma also admonishes her not to eat the enemy—only to be dismayed when she does it anyway.
  • Abigail's profanity-laden attempt at being modern in the 3rd anniversary album. Poor girl's left completely mortified.
    • Why does Holmes have a deerstalker? Because Mash badgered him into it as fanservice.
    • Arjuna's found a monkey he thinks is capable of the Monkey Fist style of martial arts, and wants to bring it back to Chaldea.
    • Salieri keeps up Avenger tradition by acting like an edgelord, proceeding to fanboy over gelato, then remembering he's supposed to be an edgelord.
  • The description of Jeanne Alter's Noble Phantasm:
    The cursed flag held by Jeanne, who descends as the dragon witch.
    In the name of the Avenger, she converts her and the surrounding area's hatred into magical energy, igniting her enemy's injustice, corruption, and hypocrisy to burn them to the marrow of their bones.
  • Jason's Noble Phantasm has him summon Atalante, Heracles and Medea (Lily) onto the battle. As Medea (Lily) and Heracles march on, Atalante kicks Jason into the enemy zone and fires her Noble Phantasm. Trapped in the enemy zone, Jason starts running desperately to dodge Atalante's arrows. Then, he avoids Medea (Lily)'s attack before Heracles knocks him away to attack enemies, just like hitting a baseball away. Before being sent away into the sky, Jason can only beg Heracles not to use him as a weapon, but it is futile.
  • One of Merlin's updated animations from the 2019 summer event has Fou kick Merlin on the head as he uses one of his skills and then stand on it.
  • LET'S! DRAWN ROARING SWORD! OH YES! SEXY!! MY NAME IS MUSASHI MIYAMOTO!!
  • One of Summer Okita's attacks involves her jetpack malfunctioning and has her bouncing around the screen with her yelping in pain all the way until she falls to the ground, damaging the enemy along the way.

    Interludes 
Some interludes have you goofing around with the featured Servant:

  • Medea's interlude happens in her fantasy creation, where she's created "Jasonland", complete with Jason-themed playgrounds, Jason mascots, and also Jason-themed merchandise. After finishing your business here, Medea warns you to not tell the others about this.
  • Emiya’s interlude has him lecturing the Master (you) on information regarding Servantsnote , but he gets interrupted by multiple different types of enemies.
    • And the third time he gets interrupted, he says he's ready for anything, but what comes are... amazons. And they’re targetting specifically him. Harem protag EX at work!
    • And Emiya asks if Roman is the one who led them to his group. Which he denies.
  • D'Eon's interlude has you "decide" what sex you see him/her as. This doesn't influence gameplay in the slightest.
  • It turns out you and Karna (of all people) have a special handshake.
    Protagonist: HEY YO CHALDELUXE!!
    Karna: Hey yo, Chaldeluxe.
    [Karna high fives you!!]
    • Even funnier is that, after talking to Karna, Mash is upset that she hasn't been aware that "such a wonderful greeting" existed.
  • Lancer Altria's interlude happens because Merlin's screwing around with her dream. The entire event is effectively various Servants bullying her into admitting how much she cares for the protagonist.
  • Medusa has you be a pretend couple with her to thwart her sisters' scheme to arrange her a marriage.
  • Zhuge Liang's third interlude has him deal with his final Ascension which makes him younger. His reaction:
    Young Waver: AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! W-W-W-W-WHAT THE BLOODY HELL!?
    • He then accuses the Gorgon Sisters and goes to kick their asses. After they're defeated twice...
      Euryale: RIIIIIIIIIIISE, MEDUUUUUUSAAAAAAA!!!
      Medusa: First Sister, Second Sister… Um, would you mind not calling me out like you’re summoning a giant robot—
    • Everyone except for Mash then in some way insults Medusa's large chest.
    • The three sisters claim they've now unlocked a Super Form after you defeat Medusa and try to gang up on you for the third section of his interlude. They don't.
    • His second interlude has a couple funny Comically Serious moments with El-Melloi II matter-of-factly responding to Fou's noises as if they're perfectly comprehensible human speech. Fou says, "Nnnng... kyau, kyaaaau!" and El-Melloi II's response is, "Nothing, I was just looking at the sea."
  • Tamamo's is about her competing with Kiyohime via e-mail to show up one another with how much they love their Master.
  • Tamamo Cat's is about finding the finest ingredients for Master. You end up assaulting a shepherd for his sheep (David) and try to attack a Servant for his fine beef (Asterios).
  • Stheno's interludes have her dupe you into thinking there's treasure in her cave. Twice. In the second one, she humiliates Medusa by coming into the cave around the time she's shedding skin like a snake.
  • Berserker Lancelot's second interlude is all about how Dr. Roman, really, really wants to see what's under his helmet. He uses a simulation to throw tougher and tougher enemies at you until he slips up and accidentally activates a simulation of Gilgamesh. Then, when Mash admits to him that they just wanted to see his face, Lancelot...simply takes his helmet off. Problem is, they can't make out his face because his other Noble Phantasm, For Someone's Glory, is still active.
  • Fergus' interlude is all about how he really wants to flirt with the female Servants. Dr. Roman's okay with this, but only for scientific purposes of course. He then ends up trying to flirt with Kiyohime, Brynhild and Nightingale.
    • While the first two encounters go about as well as expected, with Fergus wisely deciding to run away after realizing what he got himself into, his pass at Nightingale goes very differently. After agreeing to a battle with a night with Nightingale as the prize, Fergus goes on to win and Nightingale's reaction can be summed up as "well, to the victor go the spoils then" and then she offers herself up... to the player. Because they were the one giving commands, so obviously it's their victory.
    • Also, when Mash decides to make a bet on how bad Fergus will bomb his attempt, one option the player can choose is "MUDA MUDA MUDA".
  • Mysterious Heroine X participates in a tournament to defeat Sabers and ends up against Mordred and Nero, both completely baffled by this lady running around, screaming about killing them. Then the protagonists suddenly teleport to England for the final battle against Altria. After winning, she proclaims it's time to go to the True Holy Grail War of Sabers. Mash wakes Mysterious Heroine X up at the end because it's time for dinner.
  • Raikou's Interlude tells us about her story with Ushi Gozen and when Raikou "killed" herself to seal Ushi Gozen. It's serious and all... then we get this line, continuing the proud Fate tradition:
  • Medea Lily needs an ingredient to create an infinite pancake for her second interlude. So naturally she summons a Demon Pillar (for its magical properties) and after defeating it, squishes it and mixes it up in the pancake mix. No one's quite sure what to say after that.
  • In Amakusa's Interlude, when he says that he's a third rate Servant and maybe barely qualified as a Caster, you can suggest he ask Edison to teach him. Amakusa's reaction?
    "Mr. Edison... I'm sorry, a Revelation just came upon me. A vision of my arm undergoing Conceptual Improvement until it become a rocketnote ... and the birth of Shin Amakusa Shirou."
  • David's Interlude has him bicker with Roman. It's funny and heartwarming as Roman gets to enjoy a few moments with his father.
    • David complains that unlike dragons, giants don't have hoarded treasure.
      David: Dragonslayers are lucky, dragons are treasure-holding mega banks...
      Roman: You can ignore that ossan's rambling, protagonist!
      David: How rude! Call me onii-san or ojii-san instead!
      Roman: Okay, okay, onii-san.
    • When the team run into giant enemies, David leans on the fourth wall a little bit.
      David: Large enemies have AoE attacks, this is common sense in my era.
      Roman: Oh... so that's why you're good at protecting the entire team. I thought those skills are for protecting sheep...
  • During Shakespeare's Interlude, a random civilian declares his love for Mash and asks to make a baby with her after seeing her fight off some werewolves that were summoned by Shakespeare in the first place to put on a "show".
  • Chloe's interlude has her try her trademark kisses...on various Servants. The results are...mixed.
    • First up on her mark is Jack, Nursery Rhyme, Medea Lily, and Chacha, who are having a tea party...but everyone keeps saying "chacha" all because Chacha started shouting her name and the others thought it was proper etiquette at a Japanese tea ceremony (and Chacha is the one to start complaining about it).
    • Next up on the list, Chloe wants to try her luck on a Saber (preferably a certain king) or a Berserker, only to get Nightingale. Chloe expresses annoyance in that she was dropping hints for Altria or Altera to show up and tries to walk away, but the protagonist eggs her on to Mash's disbelief. After the epic battle (which could have taken up three manga volumes if adapted), Chloe wins but once again tries to walk away from the defeated Nightingale, only for the protagonist and Mash to tell her to just kiss her already so this all didn't go to waste. Suddenly, Nightnigale regains consciousness after being kissed to the surprise of everyone else, suddenly manhandling Chloe saying that she did CPR incorrectly. She then proceeds to do CPR on Chloe...her style.
    Nightingale: Wrong....wrongwrongwrongwrong!! Everything is wrong!!
    Mash: Nightingale's awake! No, perhaps she was never unconscious...
    Chloe: So what am I wrong about!?
    Nightingale: Everything! Your resuscitation procedure is totally wrong!
    Chloe: Huh? Resuscitation!? Huh!?
    Mash: Oh, Nightingale just reached out and grabbed Chloe's throat...
    Nightingale: First, find the airway! Tilt the face sideways, and if there is anything inside the mouth, scoop it out with your fingers!
    Chloe: Bleeah... Your finger...! Ack!
    Nightingale: Lift up the chin, pinch the nose and blow in with all your might for one second!
    Chloe: Hey, I—hrmgh! ACK!
    Mash: I don't think you need to breathe with all your might...
    Nightingale: But most important are chest compressions! Punch the chest one hundred times per minute to force the heart to restart!
    Chloe: (Cough)...Heart!? But it didn't stop... Ow...owowowowowow!?
    Mash: Multiple hits with no rest between them!?
    Nightingale: ...You have just witnessed a chief modern medical technique to combat death. It is known as CPR.
    Chloe: ...That isn't...right...
    Mash: Um. I don't know how to react to that.
  • Astolfo's Interlude is stupidly fun. He suddenly drags you to France to find Roland. There, the citizens are traumatized because Roland is running around naked and berserking when they try to put clothes on him. The citizens promptly attack Astolfo because he is Roland's friend.
    • Roland is still running around naked, even climbing and mounting a 200-year old saint's statue's head and screaming, "I am the king of the world!"
      Soldier: The kids cried... the women blushed but stared... I'm starting to get really tired of living a proper life.
      Mash: Please get a hold of yourself. It's okay. Please live a proper life! [The soldier then begins hallucinating]
    • After calming the soldier, the party find barefoot footprints, and Roland's the only person crazy enough to walk across a wasteland barefoot. Astolfo then decides to narrate his tracking and findings. Roland climbed a tree, stole a bird egg, and ate it, but as he wasn't satisfied, he attacked a random wyvern and ate it too... raw. This led to food poisoning and him throwing up and stepping all over it. Roland slept for a bit but was awoken to a horse rushing him, kicking his back, and causing him to spurt blood from the mouth. He called out to the rider, and after an argument, choked the rider and left him beneath a tree, stealing the horse and attempting to ride it naked and bareback. This entire story is relayed through Astolfo's own findings and his interviews with the rider and the horse itself, apparently.
    • After that, the party finally find Roland (thankfully he's fully clothed) with help from the horse. The first thing he does is confess his love to Mash.
      Roland: You said your name is Mash Kyrielite. What a beautiful name... fitting for someone as beautiful as you...
      Mash: Eh, um... thank you very much.
      Roland: The moon out tonight is... beautiful...
      Mash: !?
      Astolfo: Eh?
      Protagonist: [dialogue option] Wh-what was that?
      Mash: I-I-I-I have no idea! I'm not sure if those were romantic words or... I really don't have any experience with that!
    • It's then revealed that this Roland is actually something like leftover emotions. After we beat it, Roland puffs out of existence, but not before declaring this:
      Roland: At least... before I die... I wanted to... Expose everything...
  • In Brynhild's Interlude, the player finds that the enemy to be faced is the embodiment of her burning passion for Sigurd. The thing is, it's in a snowfield, leading to the line:
  • In Suzuka Gozen's Interlude, she wants to practice at being a high school student and tries to use a machine that Da Vinci keeps telling everyone to not use. It turns out to be a karaoke machine and Nero and Elisabeth are already using it. Suzuka outright tells them their singing is really bad and asks them to leave. They claim it's just a rehearsal and won't leave for a few hours, which irritates Suzuka so much she commences battle.
    • After the battle destroys the karaoke machine, she decides to do the "JK dating" thing and looks for men to try practice dating with, then rejects everyone from Diarmuid to Astolfo for a variety of reasons; eventually this montage becomes so repetitive the game literally fast-forwards through the entire process. Her rejection of Gilgamesh deserves special mention, as he's left speechless when Suzuka proclaims him ignorant and declares she prefers Ko-Gil to him. She then runs into Fergus who she finds interesting until she finds out he's a total creep.
  • Poor Consort Yu probably becomes the Butt-Monkey of Chaldea in just one interlude:
    • One of her problems is how to keep a suitable relationship with the protagonist as a Servant, despite also being his/her senior. While in her Second Ascension. Even Gao Changgong calls her out for it.
    • To solve her frustrations, Gao Changgong suggests asking other summoned Gods for better solutions...And they consult Ishtar, Parvati and Jaguar Warrior. Who all prefer Emiya (in a face suitable for wearing an apron) as a better consultant. You know how well it goes.
    • After being defeated in a simulation battle (as Emiya suggested and Sion agreed), Chaldea Servants who participated in Lostbelt 2.3 arrive and put up a plan: reverse their roles in 2.3 and fight again...And it turns out Yu is a terrible Master. It's so bad that she even questions if Gao Changgong held back in the Lostbelt. note  Not helped by the fact that Holmes had already found out she tampered her grade over Tactics.
    • Things go Up to Eleven when Xiang Yu joins the fray and runs through another simulation battle...Except this time Yu becomes so ashamed she reduces all her Servants' HP down to 1 along with a dump of debuffs, before she runs away calling the protagonist cheap. Xiang Yu then apologizes for her, but even Spartacus and Red Hare question if she's a "soft lady" as he described.
    • And it turns out why the protagonist played nice to her all along: he/she receives stupidly high payments from Xiang Yu for all her orders. The crew becomes worried over the couple's life in Chaldea, especially since we have the likes of Caesar or David around.
  • Medb's Interlude references and re-confirmsnote  a running joke in the Fate series regarding the Riding skill. To be precise, yes, the Riding skill also includes "riding a man", as in having sex with him.
  • In Li Shuwen's Interlude, the party eventually stumble into Zhuge Liang, and both of the player's dialogue options express sheer confusion at why he's here. Turns out he was the ZHuge martial artist that some children were talking about earlier.

    Others 
  • This parody cover of Oath Sign sums up the majority of players' luck with the infamous gacha.
  • The official manga anthology, Fate/Grand Order comic a la carte, features a treasure trove of these moments. One story features a play on EMIYA's Team Mom aspects where he knits belly bands and sweaters for Mash, Altera, Ushiwakamaru, Jack, and all the other servants with revealing clothes (both male and female) out of concern that they may catch a cold. Roman and Blackbeard were not amused.
  • On April Fools' Day 2016, all the card art got changed to the Super-Deformed artstyle of the Learn to Play Manga! FGO webcomic. Including their website, which had fake news plastered all over it, with one headline dramatically announcing that Nasu was too busy playing Dark Souls III to give a shit about anything.
    • Of particular note is the April Fools card art of Solomon, which is him getting strangled by the female protagonist. The female protagonist is stronger than the final boss...

  • Then there's April Fools 2017. They released an AR app only playable for that day, FGO GO, short for Fate/Grand Order Gutentag Omen. Gameplay consists of just throwing infinite Quartz until a Servant is caught. And Riyo has once again drawn all Servants in his chibi artstyle.
    • Riyo's 3 original Servants also show up for this game. They're all made from udon dough. And Olga Marie's Servant is humiliating her.
    • Merlin's has Fou kick him in the face.
    • Caster Gilgamesh is him being chased by Siduri to do paperwork, with the flavor text making fun of how he died of overwork in Babylon.

    • Rider of Resistance/Christopher Columbus has a super-wide Slasher Smile that goes past terrifying into bloody-hilarious, complete with shining eyes.
    • Berserker of El Dorado/Penthesilea is probably the angriest one that Riyo has drawn, what with fire in her bloodshot eyes and her twin weapons having smiley faces drawn on them.
    • Katsushika Hokusai gets ink squirted in her eyes by her octopus-father.
    • Mecha Eli-chan sports a goofy cartoon-dinosaur-esque maw, while Mk II now has a stoic Super Robot face on her usual body.

    • Asagami Fujino is staring into nothingness and looks sick.
  • In Type-Moon ACE vol. 11, there was an interview with Nasu Kinoko, a gold mine for funny quotes.
    • Regarding "Fate/Accel Zero Order", Nasu mentioned Urobuchi's first draft for the event story was Darker and Edgier than Fate/Zero and immediately rejected.
      Nasu: Write something with a happy ending for once.
      Urobuchi: Can’t I have this character kill this other character and end it there?
      Nasu: What kind of festival do you think we’re making here?! Gen, you should believe more in dreams, aspirations, and the bonds between people!
    • The entire event was designed so Urobuchi can easily blaze through it with his 3* party. But if it gets too difficult for him, he'll cheat with his Kintoki.
    • The magazine also has some of the Type-Moon members talk about Servants they like. For Takeshi Takeuchi, there's Kintoki and Void Shiki. He doesn't have any of the Saber-faces yet. Nasu calls Medea Lily a Psycholily and another staff member earnestly begs for Delight Works to buff Ushiwakamaru.
    • Everyone in Type-Moon likes Kintoki for his "cheating" capabilities.
  • The Fate/Zero collab livestream:
    • Nobunaga cosplaying as schoolboy Arjuna from Jeanne Alter's delusion from the Da Vinci event.
    • Ayako Kawasumi said the term Saber-face for the first time and then said that there were still more Saber-faces to come. God help us all.
    • Nobunaga panicking after Kawasumi said that she likes Edmond Dantes. And then he starts fanboying over everything as usual, pulling off silly poses and gushing about Kohaku. The others decided that next time, he would be the livestream filler.
  • A meta example. An early Comptiq magazine reveals the rarity of the new Knights of the Round Table that will appear in the Camelot chapter. Gawain is listed as a R with 3 stars below to cement his status. Fan outcry ensued since Gawain was one of the stronger Servants in Fate/Extra. Two days later, a tweet from the Comptiq said that there was a typo in the issue and Gawain was a 4*/SR. If it was a character typo, we can understand, but a 3-star image typo...?
  • FGO 1st Anniversary livestream is full of Nobunaga and Mafia's usual shenanigans. Highlights include: Mafia's Presence Concealment skill (because he's wearing a green shirt in front of a green screen) and using Rule Breaker to cheat at the roulette (after that, he licks it), Nobunaga almost OHKO'ed by Risa Taneda's roleplay as Mash, and finally everyone going crazy after the announcement that summoning now only uses 3 quartz for one roll and 30 for one ten-roll. Forever. Also there was a letter from Nasu.
    Nasu: NO Tsukihime for now.
  • The Fall 2016 Machi Asobi talk revealed some funny tidbits about Ayako Kawasumi and Rumi Ookubo's experience with the game and some amusing behind-the-scenes stuff from DW.
    • Kawasumi had such a difficult time with Ibaraki's raid, she had to ask Kana Ueda to help her beat it.
    • Ookubo didn't understand how the first Halloween event worked so she didn't get much out of it. Kawasumi notes that she didn't get Halloween Bathory either.
    • Neither of them could clear any of the Nero Festival 2016 Exhibition Matches and gave up after their first attempt at trying to beat Heracles.
    • Ookubo wants to know why Bathory doesn't have a swimsuit version. She speculates it's the flat chest. Her most wanted Servant was Gilgamesh but after talking to Kawasumi who was really nice, she's now considering Altria as her most wanted Servant.
    • Kawasumi only whales for Altria and the only one she doesn't have is the swimsuit version. In addition, she keeps asking Nasu and Takeuchi to create a new Altria for all Classes because she's ready to voice an Altria for every class. Dammit Kawasumi.
    • With the exception of Altria, Scathach and Anne & Mary, every other swimsuit Servant was based on the production crew's fetish.
    • Xuanzang was supposed to only have a trial quest but Nasu fell in love with her artwork and insisted that he'd write an event for her.
    • Nasu kept pushing fist-fighting Martha onto the staff and that's why we got Ruler Martha because he wanted at least one version of Martha that used fisticuffs.
    • Honjou Raita suddenly came up with Rider Kintoki's artwork one day because he'd thought a motorcycle riding Kintoki would look cool and submitted it to the company. While they were unsure what to do, one of the writers fell in love with the art and came up with the Onigashima event for Kintoki.
    • Babylon came in a 1000 page pdf for the director and he's still stuck halfway through reading it and is considering giving up.
    • The Fate/Zero event and its multiple maintenances had traumatized the staff so badly they started the Rashoumon event in the morning to avoid another mess.
  • The Babylonia livestream. Nobunaga is the best.
    • To start it all off, Santa Kamen Nobu! Then he starts talking about Extella excitedly with Kawasumi, citing the game's great story and about finding a new waifu (it's Tamamo). The other two hosts are confused.
    • After giving information on the Babylonia chapter, Nobu is suddenly wearing a... horrifying "Tonakai-san" costume. With Santa Kamen's mask.
    • Takahashi becomes very tempted to use her monthly rent money on the gacha for Babylonia, with Ookubo encouraging it. Shimazaki tries to put his foot down and avoid her going that down that path.
    • But the main highlight of this livestream is Nobunaga's birthday surprise: a cake with a shirtless Arjuna illustration by Pako... with strawberries as his nipples. Best. Cake. Ever. Then Kawasumi slices it. With Excalibur, of course.
    • When doing their usual game for how much quartz the viewers (and by extension Nobunaga and Kawasumi) get, they attempt to cheat and rig the game so they get the most quartz possible... only to find out that Delightworks had anticipated this and rigged the cards against them with all the cards being 1s. Then the spirit of Mafia gives them advice, letting them use the Mafia card to cheat their way to victory with Nobunaga using his "Eye of the Mind" skill to get the right card.
  • When the developers were asked about the lack of swimsuit-clad male Servants for the Summer event, they replied that most male Servants end up half-naked anyway, so they didn't see a point in going any further.
  • First Order OVA:
    • Among the people Medusa Alter petrified, she caresses and then gorily decapitates one particular statue that looks a lot like Shinji. To the uninitiated, this would be Nightmare Fuel, but to the veterans of the Fate franchise this is the most delicious Black Comedy.
    • Cu Chulainn hitting on Mash, leading to Ritsuka irritably shoving him away.
    • For another meta-funny, fans were quite amazed at Cu Chulainn's performance in the OVA as Caster. After defeating Saber, he asks the protagonist to summon him as Lancer next time, because he feels that he performs best at that class, and being summoned as Caster limited him so much. The reason this is funny is because most fans — especially those who have already watched Carnival Phantasm — know that he (almost) always dies horribly when summoned as Lancer.
  • The Fate Project 2017 stream had several hilarious segments featuring the Koha-ace crew. Highlights from the 2016 farewell short:
    • Okita and Nobunaga griping about how F/GO is still ongoing not knowing that the "camera" is turned on. When they realized what's going on, Nobunaga does a complete 180 and praising things about the 'anime' (also namedropping the hit anime "Washi no Na wa"/"My Name") and the game, while Okita reprimands her that it's not going to work... only to suggest the higher ups fire the 'underhanded' Nobu and continue to support her. Cue a brawl between the two.
    • When a fan (most likely real-life since it's a stream) asks why are they watching Ritsuka and where is the female protagonist, Nobunaga only has this to say:
    • Medusa is overjoyed for Sakura since her route has finally been adapted and there's more news on it, with a banner hanging over them reading "Sakura's Great Victory". Okita (Sakura Saber) assumes this must mean she's getting an anime, only for Rider to punch her. note 
    • Then a trailer for a Fate/Koha ace anime appears in the next segment, only for Medusa to push it to the side, explaining that this is not actually going to happen. The trailer narrator and then Nobu and Okita respond with a long, drawn out 'ehhhhhhhhhhhhh?' Also, when you pause at the right moment, Nobunaga's eyes resemble her Koha ace version before being pushed out of the screen.
    • When Nobunaga sees Nero, she recognizes that face and realizes that this could only be... Altria-senpai. And she's confused at the boobs, the pads and the class change. This earns Nobunaga another punch to the face.
    • Nero tries to claim that she's now the most popular Saber and that the era of red dominating over blue has come. Altria just ignores her and asks for another bowl to eat. Nero is completely taken back by how Altria sidelined her. Then when Altria is boasting about all her Saber-face counterparts, they appear in cut-ins while Mysterious Heroine X appears as a tiny mention in the corner. Nero then proceeds to complain about why she didn't get a swimsuit counterpart.
    • The credits end with the five running away from a gigantic Gudako. Altria asks for another bowl of noodles to eat while they're being chased.
    • Almost everything that comes out of Altria's mouth is either just her asking for more food or slurping noodles. Nobunaga wonders if eating is the only thing she does.
  • The Fate/GUDAGUDA Order Drama CD is a 9-part special that is utterly ridiculous from beginning to end.
    • Part 1:
      • Medusa saying that she was tricked into performing in the Drama CD by a letter saying that she will be doing a Koha-Ace Drama CD.
      • Altria waltzing in and starting with a slightly altered version of her NP chant:
        Saber: Now is the time to release it! Saber class-no-FGO's greatest AOE Buster Noble Phantasm. Plus Mana Burst and plus Charisma! Ex-CALIBUR!!!
      • Rider saying that the reason why they didn't use the video clip to dub over it and used a slideshow is because it's a Drama CD.
      • The whole reason Saber did this? It's to confirm the myth that "Saber that can't shoot beams aren't Sabers!" and new candidates for the Saber class must have Sword Beam as a mandatory trait. Okita immediately counters that she got in and didn't need such a gimmick and the main trait they should be looking for is excellent stats. Cue Nobunaga saying this:
        Nobunaga: But you have shit stats, don't you? note 
      • To prove the theory, Medusa decides to go around asking other Sabers... which turn out to be practically a Kangaroo Court of Saber-faces (Saber Lily, Saber Alter and Mysterious Heroine X), much to Okita's chagrin. When they were gong to interview a red Saber, Okita thought it was Nero (Red Saber) only to find out that it was Mordred (Saber of Red).
      • The other Sabers couldn't make it due to budget overload, so they just wrote in with letters.
        Atilla: Beams are good civilization.
      • Okita is understandably upset that the reports are very one-sided and demands for Nero and Caesar to be interviewed. She is ignored and Altria proudly states that all future Saber candidates must shoot beams and include their beam colour in their resume.
    • Part 2:
      • The second guest is brought in and it's Mordred. When Okita asks whether she is the son of King Arthur or something like that, the latter starts to go ballistic and promptly deflates when seeing Altria in the same room eating a watermelon. Mordred immediately starts to collect herself on what to say to her father only to be treated like a fellow knight of the Round Table rather than a son.
        Mordred: (I got treated like a stranger?!)
      • The reason Mordred is here is to prove that she deserves to be the king of Britain. Altria's response? Host an interview with her as the reportee. Mordred immediately crumbles upon realizing that her father has a show and thinks that she should have asked Agravain to record it, only to second-guess when she realised that he would ask her for money. The interviewees? A Kangaroo Court of Saber-faces (again). Saber Alter says that Mordred being king of Britain is the equivalent of getting a Triceratops to do farm work. Mysterious Heroine X still hates all Sabers equally. But when it comes to Saber Lily, she states that as long as the person works hard she can be a good king. Mordred is caught so completely by surprise by Lily's cuteness that she collapses and has to be lugged away by Bedivere. Finally, she proceeds to have rambling thoughts about how Saber Lily is an angel, forgetting that since this is a Drama CD, all of her thoughts are said out loud.
    • Part 3: The next question is the myth "Archers who use bows aren't Archers" because of the Loophole Abuse by Gilgamesh and EMIYA in F/SN...only to find out that all the Archers are busy in F/GO and can't come. Mordred wonders why did this turn into a F/GO ad.
    • Part 4:
      • Mordred has spent all of her time playing F/GO getting all the schedules for the Saber EXP training and material days, but had no luck getting her father in the Gacha. She only has Saber Lily who is a free servant and was given the nickname "Angel Saber" by Mordred.
      • The question in this part? When is the right time to roll in the Gacha for SSRs? Superstitions include stripping naked in the middle of the night and yelling loud enough to wake up your neighbours will make a SSR will appear. Of course Mordred wants to try out the techniques but Medusa immediately gets Okita to speak of the catalyst meme. Mordred's list of catalysts?
        Mordred: The clear file of Father that I bought from an Anime shop. The Blu-ray of Father's anime. Father's... really awesome figurine. By the way, the special ending of Unlimited Blade Works is grea-
      • With all the catalysts assembled, Mordred proceeds to yell out "FATHER!" and proceeds to roll for Altria. She complains that Lancelot already has Altria at NP 5, meaning that he pulled her 5 times in the Gacha. The Gacha proceeds to turn to 3 lines, and then Medusa proceeds to say that 3 lines in the Gacha means a servant is coming and lampshades that they actually said something useful for the game. When the servant card reveals itself to be a Gold Saber (meaning 4* or 5* Saber Servant):
        Mordred: UWAAAAAAAH!!!
      • After getting that, she immediately backpedals thinking that she is getting Sumanai aka Siegfried.
      • When the card is revealed to be Mordred since her very own existence is a catalyst by itself:
        Mordred: IT'S ME?! (proceeds to lament about her allowance for the month)
      • Meta Fridge Brilliance. Why Lancelot got Altria 5 times while Mordred couldn't get a single Altria? Think back to how in lore, King Arthur spared Lancelot despite his affair with Guinevere while Mordred got punished for a lesser crime which lead to the Battle of Camlann. Their luck with the Gacha is mirroring their relationship with King Arthur.
    • Part 5:
    • Part 6:
      • This part's question? Whether a Saber without an ahoge is a Saber or not. Mordred's response?
        Mordred: EEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!???????? (She does not have an ahoge)
      • Mordred is still gushing over Saber Lily's overall niceness when she apologizes for having an ahoge. When she realizes that Saber Alter doesn't have an ahoge, she wonders if Saber Alter is her real father. Cue Saber Alter immediately saying no.
      • Okita even states that she has an ahoge... it counts even if it's smaller! Mordred laments that she lost to a comedic-spinoff character.
      • Saber Alter states that she will not be trivialised by such a mundane question and states that the real requirement to be a real Saber... is to be designed by Takeuchi (Type-Moon Head Artist and world-renowned Saber enthusiast). Mordred realizes just how screwed she is, since her main designer is not him (It's the artist who illustrated Fate/Apocrypha, Konoe Ototsugu).note 
        Mordred: EEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!????????
      • Saber Lily decides to comfort Mordred since it's kind of her thing. Mordred can't help but wonder how a person like her turned into Blue Saber (Altria). Altria tells Mordred to shut up or she will Calibur her.
      • Finally, due to the high number of Saber-faces, Mysterious Heroine X barges in to kill them all.
    • Part 7:
      • Heroine X is pissed at the huge number of Sabers saturating the already overloaded gacha and declares that there will be no more new Saber Servants added. She then proceeds to attack all the other Saber-faces at once. Meanwhile, Medusa is worried about Altria's VA getting tired since she is playing 4 characters (Blue, Alter, Lily, Mysterious Heroine X) at once. Mysterious Heroine X proceeds to say out her new attack that she created just for this occasion.
        Mysterious Heroine X: First step, Takeuchi. Second step, Kinoko. Third step, Saber! Unlimited Saber Thrusts!!
        Okita: Isn't that my trademark!!
      • Mordred asking Lily to get behind her to protect her from all this carnage. Mordred proceeds to turn Tsundere from all of Lily's compliments.
    • Part 8:
      • Evil!Nobunaga is revealed to be the mastermind of the whole fight, hoping to get all the Sabers to wipe each other out. This is to lower the number of 4* and 5* in the gacha so that players will be able to roll her. She doesn't know that her 4* status is from being a prize Servant who is not in the gacha pool at all.
      • In hindsight, Evil!Nobunaga should have done her monologue out of earshot, since all the Saber-faces stopped fighting when they heard her plan. They now all have one goal, Evil!Nobunaga's utter annihilation.
        Saber: This devious plan. I cannot let you go because you are Koha-Ace. Let's go, us and the extra!
        Mordred: Eh? I'm the extra?
        Saber Alter: I have no objections with starting with this one.
        Okita: Well, I suspected it would come down to this.
        Saber Lily: Sorry, Nobu-san. That things have come to this...
        Mysterious Heroine X: Burnt or Exploded. Which one is more fitting for you?
      • Good!Nobunaga appears saying that she was in the ladies' room, pretty much destroying any hope of survival for Evil!Nobunaga when she tried to pass of the whole thing as a joke. Cue all the Sabers unleashing their Noble Phantasms at her.
      • Mordred's reaction to the whole mess?
        Mordred: What the hell?
    • Part 9: When Nobunaga thanks the cast, the Saber-faces minus Okita say that they are very tired due to Ayako Kawasumi voicing multiple characters at the same time.
  • Nobunaga Shimazaki strikes again with his fanboyism. When he went to an event that gives an extra copy of a light novel for someone that comes with their mother, he showed Raikou instead. The confused store clerk asks his friend for an explanation (Raikou is a yandere mother). In the end, Nobu got his extra copy.
  • AnimeJapan 2017:
    • Junichi Suwabe appears and introduces himself with his back turned to the audience:
      "I'm Bob Emiya."
    • Then when he's asked how he feels about playing Siegfried for the Apocrypha anime:
      "Sumanai."
    • Nobunaga wanted to fanboy all over the announcements but he ran out of time.
  • Fate/Extra CCC stream:
    • Nobunaga's cosplaying as Dantes from the White Day CE, he even brought a pipe to emphasize his points.
    • When Noriko Shitaya does a few voiced lines, calling the audience members senpai and all that, the camera zooms on Mafia. Who's licking his lips. Eep.
    • Meanwhile Shimazaki is either cringing or closing his eyes and indulging in his fantasies of Passionlip and BB actually saying those lines to him.
  • The Chaldea Ace creator interview has lots of little laughs.
    • Nasu was planning to only write the Moon Festival event when Takeuchi dropped Santa Alter in his lap, pressuring him to write more events.
      Nasu: "… Still, one day, a man named Takeuchi went and drew an Altria meant for Christmas all on his own whims, and even said 'Let her be the heroine!', so if it came down to that I had no choice but to write, didn’t I?"
      Takeuchi: "That was a pretty tough period~"
      Nasu: "Whose fault do you think that was…"
    • Shimazaki, Nasu, and Takeuchi are amused at Jason's inexplicable popularity.
      Takeuchi: "The useless guy is unexpectedly popular. Why is it that he’s so useless but yet still so likable?"
    • pako suddenly made Edison a lion man on a whim. Nasu and Higashide just shrugged and went along with it.
      Nasu: "Were you the one who turned Edison into a lion?”
      Higashide: "I didn’t do anything like that!? Probably pako did it…"
      Nasu: "Is that so! But since it’s interesting, sorry, please officially make it come alive as part of the script!"
      Higashide: "I got it!"
    • The only reason the Tiamat battle is as long as it is because Nasu was watching Shin Godzilla and decided to homage it.
    • Nobu talks about his reaction to the Demon Pillar battle.
      "The battle with the demon pillars was quite surprising. Defeating the Demon Pillars actually trended on Twitter. But in truth, “let me see the ending quickly” and “more mats please”, these two desires were really conflicting."
  • Agartha livestream:
    • Nobu's cosplaying as the male protagonist from the "Gudaguda Meiji Revival" 4* CE and imitates Oda Nobuyuki.
    • Satoshi Tsuruoka read some lines as Gilles, with the scenarios being "Gilles as a waiter in a family restaurant", "Gilles as a gentle big brother", and "Gilles as kindergarten babysitter". Tsuruoka went with the first option, with Gilles meeting Saber Alter in the restaurant who wants a hamburger. She's insulted by him calling her an unsexy Jeanne and blasts him with Excalibur Morgan, which is represented by Kawasumi interrupting and yelling that out loud. Also Tsuruoka peppers his lines with "COOL!"
    • After the Apocrypha PV ends, Tsuruoka gets into character as Spartacus and shouts "Death to the oppressors!!"
    • The developers promote the two upcoming F/GO manga adaptations, both of which star the male protagonist. They ask if there's one featuring the female protagonist, with a Smash Cut to the upcoming published edition of Riyo's comics. Everyone then bursts out in laughter.
  • FGO 2nd Anniversary Festival:
    • The trailer for Riyo's manga has the usual narration of saving the earth before the cast bursts in and it switches from the solemn main theme to a more light-hearted theme (from Summer 2016). Mash goes around trying to tell everyone about the new release, with the female protagonist ignoring her in favor of the book she's reading, Saber solely focused on eating, and Jeanne too busy fending off Exp hands in the archive to care about it. At the end of the PV, Mash gets her spirits back up to tell everyone about the new manga, oblivious to the female protagonist sneaking up on her...
    • Joji Nakata beckons the Chaldea masters to come over during the Heaven's Feel stage show... and of course after that, he says this.
      "Rejoice, young man... oh, I mean, young men and girls."
    • 2nd Anniversary livestream:
      • Nobunaga once again cosplays as Arjuna, wearing the Anniversary Formal Wear with the new addition of dark sunglasses. He gives a shout out to Pako, Arjuna's character designer, for this awesome idea. Same with Takahashi cosplaying Mash with her Anniversary Formal Wear. Meanwhile Minami has homemade Nitocris ears.
      • Ayako Kawasumi is lightly annoyed at Takeuchi for creating yet another version of Altria just when she completed her Altria collection.
      • Takahashi and Minami roleplay as Mash and Nitocris with them trying to get Nitocris' senpai (Ozymandias) from the gacha, but instead get the gloriously hammy laugh of Dantes, provided by Nobu.
        Ahahahaha! You called me!!
      • Everyone there hates Gawain's boss fight in Camelot and the mere mention of him makes them shudder.
      • Mafia's Rule Breaker makes its triumphant return to give everyone 30 Quartz to make a ten-roll.
  • The Chinese version of Grand Order censored Mata Hari and Boudica's artworks because they're so Stripperiffic. How? By removing them entirely. In-game? They lowered them so their heads are level with the skills. This was more of a temporary solution and their art was properly censored later.
  • During the release of the Salem chapter, fans had noticed the resemblance of Randolph Carter to the voice actor Tomokazu Sugita. He noticed it himself and used Carter's image on his Twitter account.
  • To commemorate the FGO Winter Fes, which is a Pharaoh-themed event in Japan, DW graciously gave us... one Blue Rider Gem. One. Freaking. Blue Rider Gem. Japanese players had a blast with it.
  • Shortly after Part 2's Prologue was released, Wada arco tweeted how Koyanskaya smacked Fou after it attacked her. Mind you, Koyanskaya was drawn by Wada, so she is calling her own creation out for being a bitch.
  • In a meta example, in Part 2's Prologue, all Servants obtained in-story have had their contracts canceled since there's no threat to humanity. As such the more recent Servants summoned by the player have to leave Chaldea with the least amount of quality time ... like for example, a poor pitiful Lancer who just became summonable for the Holidays. This comic explains it better.
  • In the New Years 2018 stream, we were shown a 3-part animated crossover with Fate/school life manga.
    • The first part begins with male protagonist (Voiced by Nobunaga Shimazaki) asking Mash what he wants to do now that he's hyped up, with Mash thinking he wants to do something romantic with a backdrop of Learning With Manga's Gudako laying on the bed. What he really wants to do is Saint Quartz summon to Mash's shock (and a very hilarious, long-winded yell of "GAAAAACHAAAAAA~"), causing wind to blow the backdrop and the dialogue box away, hitting the protagonist on the head.
    • Protagonist explaining why he should summon right now which Mash thinks are pure urban myths. To their mutual surprise, the protagonist managed to summon a Gold Assassin in a single summon in the form of Pseudo-Servant Kaede Makidera in the role of Takuboku Ishikawa.
    • Not being sure how good Kaede is as a Servant, the protagonist and Mash set up a battle against a bunch of Hands to show what she can do before being shocked that her main power is a Touch of Death that makes the enemy explode and disintegrate. And her Noble Phantasm? Bowing before her enemy before they blow up in a stock explosion.
    • The second part begins with Kane Himuro floating in a void before encountering the physical manifestation of the World (as seen in the UBW anime) who summons her to the Throne of Heroes. That is, a play stage with an audience of Servants with the World now being a cardboard image of itself.
    • After being explained the concept of Pseudo-Servants, Himuro tries to imagine what kind of figures she would represent before the World gives her three options: Taro and Jiro, Laika Dog or New Nessi. She's understandably annoyed that she is suggested being a Pseudo-Servant to a bunch of dogs.
      Himuro: Taro and Jiro's survival ability seems pretty high so it's still fine, but Laika Dog is that one who flew to the outer space, isn't it!?
      World: Skill: Pioneer of the Stars - EX!
      Himuko: He can't return to Earth, though!
    • The World then presents Himuko with a figure from Chūshingura. After getting the figure wrong, the World tells her that her option is Kajikawa Yosobe, to which Himuko throws a temper tantrum. The World then gives her the last person remaining: Amelia Jenks Bloomer (as in, the namesake to bloomers), much to both the protagonist's surprise at summoning another gold Servant and confusion about what is she even going to fight against with bloomers.
    • The third part is a short depicting a Holy Grail War fought by the cast of Fate/school life, using Servants from the Strongest Servant contest. It's as awesome as it is funny seeing some of the Servant entries in the contest in action. As it turns out, the whole thing was just a story/fake preview by Yukika Saegusa as Friedrich Nietzsche, during which the protagonist has almost died due of blood loss caused by his gacha luck.
  • The Servants who were selected to advertise the Setsubun event banner feature Kintoki, Raikou, Shuten-Douji (drawn by Raita) and Tomoe Gozen (drawn by Shirabi). Shirabi took notice and drew a picture of the other three bullying her creation.
  • In the Twitch livestream before the NA release of E Pluribus Unum, the guest, Atomic Mari, essentially got her start in the game, and during the tutorial summon, she ended up pulling 3 SR servantsnote , causing the chat to accuse them of rigging the game.
    • Even better? One of the SR servants she pulled was EMIYA. As she was still watching Unlimited Blade Works, she unintentionally spoiled herself on the Archer Spoiler!
    • The reactions to the pulling were even better. When she got the first one with Tamamo Cat, it was fine. When she got the second one with Stheno, the complaints rose, but mostly negated since nobody really likes Stheno anyways. When she got the third one and EMIYA, that's when the chat exploded into disbelief and cries of game-rigging.
  • Poor streamer Deiku... In his attempts to pull for Brynhild, he found nothing at all... until there's a golden Lancer spark, and it's Elizabeth. He then starts lamenting "IT'S NOT EVEN FIONN!". And suddenly, he gets a Fionn in the same ten roll. A Youtuber comment just encapsulated it so well:
    Deiku: IT'S NOT EVEN FIONN!!
    Fionn: 'Sup, Bitches. What are you looking at me like that?Extra 
  • In 2018, for April's Fools, the NA team decided to hold an event in Sakuracon... only for Riyo Gudako to conduct a Hostile Show Takeover on their Twitter account, 'killing' and tying up and gagging several visiting publishers. When April's Fools ended, Riyo Gudako was mentioned to be 'apprehended and screaming "You haven't seen the last of me!" as she Rayshifted away'. Do note that by this point, All the Statesmen hasn't happened in NA yet, therefore, she's technically right...
  • The live stream for the third anniversary had a lot of announcements and surprises that excite many fans, however one moment stole the whole show.. when the Riyo Gudako mascot suddenly showed up near the end with a Rule Breaker and multiplies the reward quartz for the live stream five times. Even better? Rule Breaker was literally taped onto her arm.
  • This fancomic dub:
    Gudao: Hey Gilgamesh, you're half-god and half-human, right? Doesn't that make you half-mongrel?
    (cue Gilgamesh's triggered face)
    Cu: I can't believe the kid just said that!
    EMIYA: That's hell he's walking into! But he's got a point!
    (laughter)
    Gilgamesh: ENUMA ELISH!
    • What's more, "mongrel" technically (if rudely) means hybrid or crossbreed, so that would make Gilgamesh all mongrel.
  • There's this fancomic where Medb gets super jealous at Scathach for being more popular than her... and getting trolled around, up and up including getting baited to look at pictures of naked Caesar.
  • The FGO NA community went nuts, not unlike JP at the start of the game, due to the server being in maintenance for 21 hours during the release of Nero Fest 2018(2016 for JP). 'AUTHENTIC JP EXPERIENCE' they say. End result: 21 SQ and 18 Golden Apples and the appearance of new and old memes.
  • The FGO CN server suffered from a bug in late October 2018 that broke the gacha into giving out SSR servants in EVERY ROLL ATTEMPT. It was understandably patched and the players who exploited this bug had their accounts rolled back to the state before exploiting the bug. See for yourself.
  • During the Lostbelt #3 livestream, Aoi Yuuki immediately loses her shit when we know who wrote the Lostbelt, supported by Ayako Kawasumi. Not that we doesn't know why.
    Nobunaga Shimazaki: We have a Victim Group here!
  • After the release of the 3rd Lostbelt, the JP base went looking for the CN base's reactions. Turns out they were searching for porn of the Lostbelt King, Qin Shi Huang.
  • For April Fools 2019, Delight Works released a another joke app to be played on mobile. But it was quickly overshadowed by a fan animator that made a Tsukihime collab event PV. This same animator had done a similar joke PV in April Fools last year...with the Gundam series. The response online is downright hilarious and soul-crushing.
    • To make the joke look even more authentic, Kinema 106 actually wrote a whole new song just for the prank.
  • On Florence Nightingale's real life birthday, as usual, a reddit thread was posted to celebrate her. However, Nightingale's great great great nephew stumbled upon the thread wondering why the hell people were calling their ancestor a "waifu", which lead to the original poster flirting with said nephew. While this was at first just contained within the FGO subreddit, eventually the Japanese fans caught wind of this, and included a 4koma to sum up how that great nephew felt when he found out what the internet did to Nightingale thanks to FGO.
    Nightingale's descendant: So, how is she portrayed character-wise?
    Savadava: She told a herculean Celtic hero-turned-monster empowered by a wish-granting doohickey to go kill himself. Kept a warrior with the strength to rival demigods in a bag. Wrestled with hundreds of swole Celtic warriors and tried to amputate me... more than several occasions. "Diplomatically" settled the feud between two rivaling world-renowned geniuses that held the strongest positions in a country facing peril. Assisted in killing a demon originating from a powerful Jewish figure. And finally, she saved America.
    Nightingale's descendant: Huh, pretty close to the real person apparently. This sounds very interesting, I might have to actually play this game now. (Even if it did inspire hentai of my ancestors.)
  • The descendant of the Real Life Florence Nightingale tries to identify all the Servants (excluding the ones who debuted in the Tokugawa and Lady Reines' Case Files events). While he does correctly guess 29 servants, most of the names he gives to the rest are from Fire Emblem, Fullmetal Alchemist, etc. He even comments on the character designs and has trouble with the Saber-face Servants:
    • He calls Gilgamesh and Cu "Blonde Emiya" and "Blue Emiya" respectively and Blackbeard "Socrates" of all people. He even calls Martha "female Judas" and Irisviel "Jesus".
    • He gets confused with Anne and Mary wondering if one of them's riding the other because they're Rider class.
    • He identifies several characters as certain superhero characters, such as Tesla as "Thanos", Edison as "Captain America but a lion", Sherlock as "Alfred from Batman" and Achilles as "The Flash'' .
    • He exasperatedly comments that the scantily-dressed female Servants (such as Shuten-doji, Boudica etc.) should put some clothes on.
    • After guessing B.B.'s name based on her class name, he assumes that "she looks like she got cancer from looking at the moon too much so she's called Moon Cancer".
  • In FGO 4th Anniversary live event, upon her introduction as a guest, Aoi Yuuki entered with this gem...
    Aoi Yuuki (in Okita's voice): MASTER!! WHY THE HECK IT'S MUSASHI WHO GETS A SWIMSUIT?!!
    • This gets more hilarious when shortly after this, the CM of the Summer event was revealed and Okita finally got her swimsuit variant!

How well does it match the trope?
