Funny / Fate/hollow ataraxia

Go To

  • The track-and-field trio makes the questionable decision of asking Taiga if Shirou could be dating Ayako. She immediately goes into a ham-stastic rant about how Shirou's life is already too much of a Rom Com for that. Miki Ito (Taiga's VA) chews the scenery with gusto in that scene, especially the parts where she impersonates other characters.
    Taiga: Eveeen jokes have a limit! WHO do you think live at that house even NOW!? Isn't there Sakura-chan, Saber-chan, Tohsaka-san, and Rider-san!? But if Mitsuzuri-san moves in, I won't lose to some love comedy hot springs boarding house, NO. Your teacher thinks in many ways that it winning would be no good! Saber-chan would say, "Welcome home, Shirou" by kneeling respectfully on the floor, and Sakura-chan with an apron on would go, "Senpai, dinner's ready." Tohsaka-san would invite him, "Please hang out with me for a bit, Shirou." And then Rider-san would give a, "Why don't we take a bath together?" and on and on. It's just ABSURD that such flags from this love boarding house harem keep popping up and yet, but even then, even then, Himuro-san…!
    Himuro: Um…
    Taiga: [chokes on her own breath]
    Himuro: Please do not vomit ectoplasm, Sensei. It was just a question.
    • The way how Taiga tries to warn the three girls to keep themselves away from Shirou just in case is also funny on its own:
      Taiga: The moment you let your guard down, girls like you will be eaten up by Shirou before you know it!
      Yukika: Eeeeh!?
      Kaede: Geh... By Emiya? The guy is just...
      Himuro: I must politely decline.
      Taiga: Wha, don't accept it so fast! Shirou isn't that perverted! Even though Kiritsugu-san entrusted me with his upbringing as a big sister, I'd have to apologize in the afterlife if his son became such a playboy!
      Himuro: [thinking] Fujimura-sensai is in a considerable state of confusion. I give up, where do I go from here...?
  • Advertisement:
  • Shirou and Rin trying to find Saber's "gekirin", a weakness in Oriental dragons that causes them to go berserk. They end up bringing out Saber Alter when they cut off her Idiot Hair. It has to be seen to be believed: [1]
  • Shirou tries to get Ilya's permission to borrow her castle to have a date with Sakura.
    Shirou: I know it's rather sudden, but I want to have dinner here, just the two of us.
    Ilya: [heavenly light from above, white pigeons fly, church bells ring]
    Shirou: With Sakura, that is.
    Shirou: [silently] Sudden mood change.
  • Shirou and Saber discuss bras. It ends with this pronouncement. "Under no circumstances shall I wear any underwear that is not picked by Shirou." Cue Shirou desperately trying to flee... And then, well, Shirou fleeing the scene and Saber chasing after him. And Sakura and Rider heard the whole thing. And all this caused by Rin.
  • Lancer meets the Track and Field club. Hilarity Ensues. Highlights are when he completely fails to come up with something sexy to say to Saegusa. "You're the drudge."
    • Then, they ask what sport he does. "Javelin Throw".
    • Shirou's Silent Snarking is a thing of wonder during that scene:
      Shirou: That's not "smooth"... that's harassment!
      Lancer: ...What's that? Weapon? Food?
      Shirou: ...... [narrating] I am now explaining the concept of sexual harassment to a hero of mythological times. This is too much. It's almost as impossible as explaining what Internet is to Tohsaka. And if I do try, I'd probably be taken for a clown.

      Saegusa: Javelin throw... so that's like what Kubota-kun does on our team.
      Himuro: Oh? You look like you'd be pretty good at that. What is your record?
      Shirou: [to himself] Speed of about Mach 2, and distance of around 40 km...

      Shirou: [realizing that Lancer is actually getting his way with the ladies for once] [narrating] Congratulations, Lancer. Clapping softly, I get up from the bench. And I'm sorry, Lancer. This hunting session... Heavens may forgive you, but I will not...!
      [cockblocking ensues]
    • Advertisement:
    • The icing on the cake is when Shirou advises Himuro about what to do if Lancer starts acting funny: find an excuse to feed him some hot dogs and make sure to say how they're named afterwardsnote . Trolling and a nice reference to Celtic Mythology all wrapped into one snarking package:
      Shirou: [narrating] So. No more than ten minutes later, I'm still sitting on the bench, basking in the sun.
      Lancer: Kuaaaaaaaaah! Wha-wha-wha-what did you feed meeeeee!?
      Shirou: [without missing a beat] A refreshing scream resounds throughout the clear sky. Kicking up a dustcloud behind him, Lancer runs toward the port with a speed matching and beating that of a raging bull.
  • Yet another Bad End...Shirou can reveal to Saber that he also trains with Rider. She gets ANGRY, reacting like she just found out Shirou cheated on her.
  • Shirou runs into the track-and-field trio at a bookstore, triggering Makidera's Sitcom Arch-Nemesis-ness she's going about him. Long Story Short, they ends up asking how he thinks Makidera would look in a pair of sport sunglasses they saw in a magazine.
    Shirou: …It'd definitely look like an evil villain straight out of an American comic.
    Girls: [Stunned Silence because his answer was a little too close for comfort]
    Saegusa: R-Really? That means it's cool… Right?
    Himuro: …I can see what you're trying to say. Yes, a person does look naturally evil with their eyes covered.
    Makidera: Keh! Why can't you just simply say that I'd look cool and elegant like a black panther!!
    Shirou: …At any rate, it'd fit Makidera better than me.
    Makidera: That goes without saying. If I'm the villain, then Emiya would be like a Mid-Boss.
    Saegusa: What if the two of you have a matching pair?
    Himuro: …Then it'd be like a mafia boss with her henchman.
    Shirou: [thinking] …Henchman? And… SHE is my boss……?
    Shirou & Makidera: [perfect unison] Uuuu, UUUUAAAaaah!!!
    Saegusa: Ah… they're both crying…
    Shirou: I don't want a boss like her!
    Makidera: I don't want an underling like him!
    Himuro: ……Maybe just companions would be better…
    Makidera: That sucks, tooooo!
  • Saber and Rider discuss cooking. It almost restarts Heaven's Feel.
  • Rule of Sexy aside, ever wondered why Rider wears a Minidress of Power with a Dangerously Short Skirt as part of her Servant outfit? Well, the answer is equal parts logical and ridiculous: Rider's black dress turns out to be a hand-me-down from her sisters, the eternally youthful Stheno and Euryale, and she just outgrew it. Living in an otherwise uninhabited island and having bullies for older sisters meant that Medusa simply didn't have anything else to wear.
  • Issei in a frilly dress.
  • Saber thinks Rin's exercise equipment is 'catalysts' and concludes that Rin must have meant to summon her with them.
    Saber: ......Too bad, Rin. Looks like the stars had other plans for the two of us. But I can certainly see summoning a muscular Archer with these catalysts.
  • Saber: "Shirou. I'd like to try on this swimsuit. Will you tell me how it looks?"
    • Option A: A little lie can save a life
    • Option B: Hope for the best, plan for the worst
  • Shirou and Saber go on a swim date to the water park. The Funny Moments begin when Saber reveals that, being King Arthur, she is able to WALK on water... But not SWIM in it. Cue Shirou DUNKING A HEROIC SPIRIT into the drink, and then spending the rest of the stay there obliviously embarrassing her as she keeps getting reminded of why she fell in love with him.
    • Shirou and Saber then meet Archer, and as Shirou and Archer immediately begin hating on each other, Lancer teases Saber. Doesn't end well for him.
    • And how does the entire thing end? Shirou accidentally beats Saber in a swim race without thinking, forgetting to his horror that Saber is a VERY Sore Loser. Cue 30 laps of swimming hell and Shirou swearing that he'll never forget this ever again.
    'My muscles are screaming in agony, my endurance sapped to rock bottom. I'm sure a vital part of me died on the inside that I'll never be able to get back.'
  • Lancer and Archer having a little fishing contest. Which Archer is winning due to projecting a cutting edge, super expensive fishing rod. He proceeds to childishly taunt Lancer all the while, who can only sulk. Shirou wisely chooses to just back away, praying that Archer never has cause to change his title to "Angler."
    Shirou: (narration) I never knew that adults reverting to childishness could be so unpleasant to watch...
    • And then Gilgamesh joins in, recruiting a team of kids and equipping them with solid gold, Super Prototype fishing rods. Archer and Gil engage in an enthusiastic fishing duel while a sobbing Lancer just wants his peace and quiet back.
    Shirou: (narration) Alas... Lancer's lost paradise will stay forever in my memories——
  • Rider calmly discusses her defeat and death, including being trapped in a nightmare by her own powers being reflected. Then Shirou asks her what the nightmare was, and she hesitates to answer, at first, and then tells him she "has changed her mind". It was was her elder sisters making fun of her for being tall.
  • Tohsaka the functional Luddite meets her greatest enemy: an electronic bidet. If you're familiar with Japanese toilets, you'll know why she kept covering her butt for most of her rant to Shirou about the appliance after using it for the first time.
    Rin: I can't believe it. Who in the world, where in the world, what race of people could possibly think to invent such a satanic device!? Tch, modern engineers are not to be taken lightly. That creativity, that effectiveness, truly, it's the work of a god, or a demon, or...!
    • Misery loves company, so Tohsaka goes and gets the only person who's as bad as her with technology to use the bidet — Saber.
  • When Shirou invites Illya to the pool, Sella immediately objects, saying that it's not proper for a lady like the daughter of the Einzbern to go to a public place like Waku Waku Splash. Illya easily counters this by saying she will rent the whole place for the day, thus making it "private" and invalidating the point Sella was trying to make.
    • When the above argument fails her, Sella changes her strategy and instead says that it's not proper for someone like Shirou to accompany her to an event like that. Illya nonchalantly declares him her "future consort", thus making it suddenly okay for him to escort her and again foiling Sella's attempt to cancel the date. Shirou isn't able to say more than an incredulous "what?" at the Wacky Marriage Proposal.
    • Sella doesn't desist and has an Eureka Moment when she realizes that they're having this conversation at Shirou's place. She then cleverly says she will stop opposing the idea if someone else accompanies them. Neither Shirou nor Illya see a problem with it and they agree with the condition, which is when every girl in the house other than Taiga appears out of nowhere — with Tohsaka literally falling down from the ceiling — to invite themselves to the event while giving totally transparent excuses to justify their eavesdropping. As much of a Jerkass as Sella is, you've got to hand it to her: using Shirou's Chick Magnet-ness to recruit a quartet of able and willing Moment Killers was a brilliant move.
  • Two Bazett-related brick jokes:
    • At midnight, Bazett goes into a cheap noodle shop, orders two portions, and eats them both. Later, Shirou hears a rumor about a ghost who visits the noodle shop, orders for two, and disappears.
    • After raiding a house, Avenger gets soaked with milk by a trap activated by leaving. Bazett is endlessly amused but notes it seems like a pretty harmless trap. When Shirou and company go to clean Rin's mansion, they notice some spilled milk by the door.
  • It turns out the events of Fate/Zero have left Saber traumatized enough to affect her eating habits:
    Shirou: Wait, Saber. are octopuses really a no-go? You ate them just like that until now.
    Saber: D-Don't tell me... I never thought that this "octopus" you speak of is... the demonic fish itself?! ... What is this... The netherworld's evil god that wouldn't die no matter how much I cut it... was what I tasted back then...!
  • Rin and Shirou are trapped in a chest made by Zelretch himself that is Bigger on the Inside thanks to fucking with causality (as Zelretch is wont to do). Shirou discovers Rin's cellphone and tries to make calls on it...only the calls are connecting to other universes. This goes from awkward to hilarious when he tries calling Rin's house and a Future!Rin answers. Except—
    Shirou: [narrating] ...It was definitely Tohsaka's voice coming over the telephone, but something about it was inconceivable. As though it was... lovestruck. It reminded me of lovers who shamelessly embrace each other in public.
    • This Future!Rin has apparently completely dropped the "tsun" from her routine. The current present Rin starts getting jealous, because somehow neither one realizes who the other is. This reaches its logical conclusion when Future!Rin takes some of Rin's tsundere threats against Shirou to the letter and warns her, in no uncertain terms, that she will hunt and kill her if she hurts her Emiya-kun.
      Shirou: .................. [narrating] Too much love can hurt. Seriously, Parallel World Me. What the hell happened? In what way? By what means? How did you get Tohsaka Rin to fall that madly in love with you...!?
    • After that, Rin changes tactics and asks her Alternate Self what does she even see in a guy like Shirou. Big Mistake.
      Rin: ...So you love him, but how should I put it, what's so good about him? Do you just have bad taste? Emiya Shirou's quiet, unsociable idealism just doesn't understand how a woman's heart works. He's not that great of a catch. Seriously, why are you so into him?
      Shirou: [to himself] I want to object, but I'll probably just end up getting kicked, so I'll keep quiet for now.
      AU!Rin: ......
      Rin: ...Hey. Why are you so quiet? Give me some kind of rebuttal, you.
      AU!Rin: [laughs faintly]
      Rin: H-Hmph, so it's not that much after all. With Shirou's main points, even you—
      AU!Rin: —Yes, I love everything about him.
      Rin: ...!
      Shirou: [narrating] They were only words, but... they deeply rattled the Tohsaka over here.
      Rin: W-Wha...
      AU!Rin: I told you, his oafishness, his thickheadeness, the way he blurts out whatever he thinks, his childish idealism, the way he ignores his wounds, all of it. You should be more honest with yourself, too. Worded a different way, didn't you just admit that you love him in spite of all his faults?
      Rin: Whaaa...! Stop messing around! I seriously can't stand those things—
      AU!Rin: Sure, sure, we'll go with that. But you know, Miss, I don't "stick with him through thick and thin." I protect him when he struggles, lend him a hand when it really counts, and only see the best in him. So I'll declare it now. Rather than becoming happy together, I will, with no questions asked, and more than anyone else, give him happiness.
      Rin: Gah— O-Of course, I already knew... n-no, I mean, why would I ever go through that much trouble for him!? T-T-Too bad! I see your point, but I don't think Emiya-kun is someone who needs that much.
      AU!Rin: Is that so? Then I'll do as I like. You might think that, but to me he's the greatest partner I could ask for. [louder] Say, isn't that right, Shirou? We'd never be ashamed of our mutual love. So, for that reeeason, reward me with a biiig kiss~❤
      Rin: Fine, then! Take as many of him as you like! Mutual love!? Greatest man!? With such a naive person, you'll have nothing but trouble! Hmph! Heroes and princes on white horses are just dreams! Drown in your ideals and die...!!! [channels prana into her cellphone and breaks it into pieces]
    • And the icing on the cake. After destroying the phone, Rin asks Shirou if he recognized the girl on the other side of the line from his acquaintances in their home universe. Shirou wisely says he's never seen her face and she advises to be careful if he ever meets her and assures him that "that woman" is major bad news for him. The irony doesn't go un-lampshaded.
      Shirou: ...I see. Got it, I'll bear that in mind. [narrating] I enthusiastically mean it as well. After all, it was a warning from the person herself.
      • And then Issei and Ayako walk in and catch her dressed like that...
    • And before all this even happens, Shirou encounters the chest... And finds Rin inside. He immediately closes it in disbelief. He opens it again. She actually then speaks to him. Then Shirou closes it yet again. It takes him a third try before he properly lets Rin out. He just finds the whole situation that unbelievable.
    • How they actually left the box. They've been trapped for so long, Rin has to go to the bathroom. A painfully embarrassed Shirou offers to project a bedpan, only succeeding in infuriating Rin to the point of actually grabbing and activating Ruby.
    • The incident that made Tohsaka stash the Kaleidostick in the magical chest and swear to never get it out again. Six years ago, Rin hiccuped at the worst possible time while singing a song in front of her classmates who laughed at her for it. Embarrassed as she was, the 11-year-old magus thought of impressing her friends with a mind-blowing repeat performance by using the Kaleidostick to access the abilities of a "Tohsaka Rin who is good at singing from a parallel universe". Being the Jackass Genie that it is, Ruby gave Rin exactly what she asked by granting her the skills and personality of an Alternate Self of hers who happened to be a super perky Idol Singer. While still in her "Prim Trance", Rin went into town and all but hijacked a live performance in a park, jumping onto the stage and enthusiastically singing "like an idol from the eighties" for a numerous and very surprised audience, many of them kids around her age. Afterwards, Rin woke up in her room back to normal and with no memory of the incident except for a Note to Self telling her to NEVER contract Ruby again. From that day and on, all her friends started to avoid her while looking at her with a mix of second-hand embarrassment and genuine awe and she didn't learn the reason until she caught one of the fleeing kids and forced the truth out of him.
  • During their encounter with the Einzbern master, Avenger helps Bazett in the most "Avenger" way possible.
    And with her frozen there as that monstrous thing came bearing down on her, I personally think it was awfully nice of me to give her a little push out of harm's way via a flying kick to the side.
  • Shirou discovers Rin and Saber looking through his room in search of his Porn Stash. They find something, and Saber is somewhat irritated when Rin observes that it doesn't have any blondes, but then Shirou comes in and tells them it was a gift from Shinji he hid, and Rin storms off in a huff. Shirou is relieved that they didn't find his actual Porn Stash, which is implied to include blondes.
  • Caster forcing Shirou to accompany her as she stalks Kuzuki-sensei who's walking around the town with Fuji-nee, despite Shirou's insistence that Fuji-nee is literally the last woman in Japan Caster would need to worry about her husband having an affair with.
    • Taiga gets a Sneeze Cut when Shirou says the above. Then he speaks similarly about Neko-san whom Shirou doesn't deem a danger to Caster's marriage either, despite her showing no small amount of admiration for Kuzuki when they met for the first time in another scene.
    • Shirou feeling embarrassed when a kid points and laughs at the stalking duo. Caster threatens the kid to go away or get turned into a pig, and given that Medea could in fact know how to do it (she is Circe's niece after all), Shirou steps in to defuse the situation.
    • When Shirou finally decides that he had enough and tries to pull a Screw This, I'm Outta Here!, the dignified Princess of Colchis holds onto his leg for dear life, begging him to not leave her to stalk Kuzuki alone. To make the moment even more pathetic, they were at the mall at the time, and being physically the weakest Servant, this meant that Caster got dragged on the smooth floor for a bit before Shirou gave up on leaving.
    • This small moment between Shirou and Caster:
      Caster: ……Whatever happened to you? I seem to recall you having more of a charming docility to you, boy.
      Shirou: [pointedly] By which you mean gullibility?
      Caster: [avoids looking at him in the eye]
    • Shirou gets tired of Caster calling him "boy" and complains about it. Caster then hereby promotes him to "junior."
    • When Caster confesses that she drafted Shirou as her stalking companion because she somehow got the idea that she would look like a mistress obsessing over Kuzuki if the police stopped her, Shirou tells her that she only has to say she's the guy's wife because they're in fact legally married. Getting called "Kuzuki Medea" gets Caster into what can only be called a joygasm, twirling around in utter happiness while drawn in Super-Deformed style.
    • Shirou and Caster follow Taiga and Kuzuki into a cafe, where Shirou is forced to explain to the waitress that they need the farthest table from the latter's with only gestures so they won't notice them. By some miracle, he manages to do it.
    • Shirou's dry surprise at seeing Lancer with a new part-time job.
    • Lancer and Shirou share a moment of solidarity over Caster's adorable Pointed Ears.
      Caster: I don't care, just get your dirty fingers off me!
      Lancer: Whoops, my bad. I wanted to try feelin' those ears, just once.
      Shirou: I know what you mean, Lancer.
      Lancer: Right?
      Caster: [her ears instinctively twitch]
      Shirou and Lancer: [in amazed unison] They moved!
    • Then Caster complains about the treatment:
      Caster: How rude. Souchirou-sama is the only one who can touch my ears!
      Lancer: [smirks] [knowing tone] Ooh? He's touched them, has he?
      Caster: [blushes] [smiles to herself in reminiscence] [blushes some more] [suddenly remembers she's got an audience] Shut your mouth, you stray mutt! Mongrel! Cur! Dogs that can't be tamed should be chopped up and used as shark bait!
    • Striped service?
    • Lancer pretends to confuse Taiga with Kuzuki's wife while knowing that Caster was listening in on them. Taiga's surprisingly embarrassed reaction rubs Caster in all the wrong ways:
      Caster: [summons Rule Breaker] [through gritted teeth] TthAaaTt WwooOmAaaAaN
      Shirou: The table, you're stabbing the table! Put it away! Put away that strange blade!
    • Lancer and Taiga start to discuss fishing. Shirou's narration is on point:
      With that, Lancer and Fuji-nee start talking about the different kinds of black porgy caught at the harbor, enthusiastically discussing different methods to gut them and drain the blood. The complexions of nearby customers turn pale in an instant.
    • How the whole thing ends:
      So as not to be noticed, we slip out from the front entrance.
      —But as that was impossible, we stealthily creep across the floor, towards the washrooms, and tumble out from a narrow window, thus putting an end to our surveillance mission.
  • TIGER DOJO - THE MOVIE! You will die laughing!
    Rider: ...What kind of movie was that, Shirou?
    Shirou: Don't ask me. I honestly don't know. [internal monologue] I wonder if it's alright to make a movie like that? No, is it OK to show such a movie? I wish the movie theater would be a little more conscious of the fact that it's expected to offer entertainment. Or rather, I'd like them to stop showing this right now. Before there is a second or third victim!!
  • Shirou accidentally sells Tohsaka on the idea of having a date at her place's unused private pool after describing to her a romantic scene from a movie. Being this Tohsaka, she tries to agree to it without showing too much enthusiasm by making it look like she's only permitting it as a teacher's reward to her apprentice. Shirou naturally misses the subtext and tries to turn the potential date into an event for the whole gang, which of course gets Tohsaka angry at him.
    Rin: That's not it at all, you moron!
    • The icing on the cake in that scene is Shirou enthusiastically talking about doing all the pool-related activities that "can't be done in public without bothering others" while mentally enumerating stuff like having a barbecue, playing with inflatable toys, and so on. Problem is, Tohsaka is not a mind reader and Shirou's words were misleading enough to make her think he was planning on having a pool-themed ten-person orgy.
      Shirou: So, doesn't it sound great?
      Shirou: [gets viciously punched on the side of the head] [falls om the scorching asphalt] Haah…! So hot… and pain…ful…!
      Rin: In my garden… Right in front of me… What the hell is that!? I can't believe it, you honorless reservist!
    • Notably, even with the gross misunderstanding, Tohsaka does not cancel the plans outright and merely forbids Shirou from inviting anyone else. He's confused and futilely asks for an explanation, but the readers are likely just laughing to themselves that Miss Honor Student is in fact on board with the idea of a Two-Person Pool Party.
      • Made even funnier right afterwards, when Rin starts talking about going to Waku Waku Park on a date and tosses some bold, lewd insinuations at Shirou, with the clear intent of getting him to agree to the arrangement. Forget being a Covert Pervert, Miss Honor Student has fully embraced her sexuality at this point. Obviously, Shirou is still too much of an idiot to understand what's going on and STILL asks if it's okay for him to bring Saber along. Rin's patience is akin to a saint's at this point.
    • The scene also has a quick Boke and Tsukkomi Routine moment where Shirou hands her glasses over to Tohsaka so she can explain herself properly. She thanks him for it before putting them on and taking her trademark lecturing pose, before realizing what she's doing.
  • In an extra epilogue, Bazett and Caren convince Rin to give them a few minutes alone with him. She leaves the room, urging him to "bear with it." Shirou gets a bad feeling and tries to make a break for it, only for Caren to use her Holy Shroud to restrain him. In the next scene, Shirou is represented with Avenger's sprite. They'd stripped him down and used an oil pen to cover his skin in copies of Avenger's tattoos.
  • Shirou meets Gilgamesh in the cavern of the Greater Grail, which Gil is exploring as part of his "kingly duties". After a bit of brief conversation, Gil goes back to exploring...and gets stuck in the mud pouring out of the Greater Grail, even though Shirou warned him not to touch it. Then, in a scene mirroring the climax to Unlimited Blade Works, Gil throws one end of Enkidu to Shirou to help pull himself out. When Shirou decides to leave rather than help, Gil calls Shirou out for ignoring his "duties as a citizen". Shirou snarkily responds that maybe he should go get Saber's help, which Gilgamesh hastily turns down, then begs (well, as close to begging as Gilgamesh ever gets) Shirou not to tell her.
  • Issei and Shinji have a fight. It ends with Issei causing Shinji to sulk, so Shinji gets his bringing a horde of girls to school, and taunting Issei with them. Iseei's response is to run after Shinji. "Third year. Three months till graduation. For the first time in his life...Issei was tardy."
  • The scene aptly titled "Rider, reading, and the jealous Sakura":
    • Shirou is sitting in Rider's room reading. Midway through the scene, Sakura comes in and has something of a minor freak-out at the realization that her sorta boyfriend is awfully comfortable spending time alone with her super-hot Servant in her bedroom. Cue Rider and Sakura having an epic eyes-only conversation of, essentially, Sakura asking Rider if she's trying to steal her man, making Rider realize how the whole thing looks like. Shirou naturally completely misses the subtext and becomes very confused when Rider starts apologizing to Sakura and the latter basically drags him out of the room.
    • The scene culminates in Sakura and Shirou talking just outside Rider's room and then explaining she TOTALLY forgot what she was going to say. The best part is how incredibly frantic Sakura gets every time the still confused and very oblivious guy tries to return to Rider's room, as if fearing that Shirou and Rider alone in a room were some instant recipe for sexy times.
  • Shirou worries about how Shinji is holding up in the Matou Residence with Sakura rarely there anymore. Shinji, while showing his fear of Sakura, manages to coax Shirou into helping him find her diary.
    • While Shirou searches Sakura's desk, Shinji resolves to search her... closet. A little while later, he is found muttering "outrageous" to himself while examining Sakura's underwear sizes.
    • Eventually, they find Sakura's "assassination notebook" -diary, where she has written notes about her brother's and grandfather's misbehavior in Matou Residence's daily life. The diary looks to be right out of a horror story as her statements go from "I'll tell him about it next time" to simply "unforgivable".
    • Eventually, Shirou and Shinji try to escape the room in panic, only to encounter Dark Sakura and end up in a scene that wouldn't have looked out of place in the original Heaven's Feel route.
  • Souichirou, somehow, teaches an ethics class.
  • While talking with Lancer and Kid Gil under the bridge the topic somehow becomes about Shirou preferring the kid version of Gilgamesh over the adult, which Lancer misunderstands for something else. After Shirou vehemently denies that, Kid Gil states that he isn't one to talk due to his reaction to Illya back when they had a pool party.
    Kid Gil: That's rude. You're the last person I want to hear that from, Onii-san. That one time you were blushing from the figure of Illya-san in a swimsuit is a serious crime.
    Shirou: Guh, how does the King of Heroes (child) know that...!!!?
  • In a flashback to when she was alive, Rider/Medusa used the people she turned to stone as poles to hang laundry from.
  • Rin realizing mid-conversation that the whole reason why she dropped everything in London to return to Fuyuki in a hurry was because she received a SOS letter telling her that "Emiya-kun" needed her help. Only then the Tsundere noticed the kind of message she was sending about how important he is to her and quickly corrects herself by saying it was because dealing with problems in Fuyuki falls under her responsibility.
    • The circumstances of the letter are a Funny Moment on their own. In a previous loop (or on that same day, depending on how you play), Shirou wondered aloud if Sakura could mention in her regular correspondence with Rin that something seems to have restarted the Holy Grail War despite none of the Servants really wanting to fight. However Shirou takes it back when he realizes — also aloud — that having Rin back in town could probably cause more problems than it would solve and tells Sakura to forget it until they hit the Godzilla Threshold. The kicker is that Sakura dutifully wrote down everything Shirou was saying and sent it verbatim to London, making it look like Shirou was pretty much telling Tohsaka that "Yeah, we've got some trouble here, but don't bother to come back because you'd get in the way", which of course incensed Rin more than enough to fly to the other side of the world ASAP. Thankfully for Shirou, memories get blurry on the details from one cycle in the "Groundhog Day" Loop to the next.
  • Illya: Loli Grail.
  • Some questions in the "Quiz Ogre" minigame are worth a chuckle:
    • [What is the Tohsaka family motto?]
      1) Always clumsy.
      2) Always elegant.
      3) Always miniskirts.
    • When the game asks you "Which of these things is not like the others?" between Sakura, Rin and Leysritt, you could be inclined to answer the latter because the other two are human mages and even sisters while Liz is an Artificial Human instead. However, the correct answer is "Rin." Why? The game doesn't say, but the most likely possibility is that Buxom Is Better.
    • There's also the fact the game makes fun of you for passing the quiz.
      Quiz Ogre: Splendidly done! Just what I expected from a Fate PhD like you…! Now, in recognition of your vast store of useless knowledge, allow me to bestow upon you this reward.
  • After Shirou agrees to teach Caster how to cook, she drops by. She knocks, but when Shirou opens the door, nobody's there. So he closes the door and turns around to see Caster observing the shoes at the entrance. It turns out Medea was so impatient she dematerialized, casually set the Bounded Fields at the Emiya Residence to ignore her and phased past Shirou... and then stopped to check on the shoes to see if Sakura was home, not wanting her to know of the disastrous earlier expedition.
    • And then, Saber drops by the kitchen to find Shirou and Caster. While hostile at first, a contrite Medea convinces her she's only dropping by to learn to cook. After a while, a hesitant Saber asks what they're cooking.
  • Shirou spots Rider pacing around in front of the shed and assumes she wants to use one of his bikes to sneak out. He opens the shed for her and lets her use Number Two, the bike he uses for groceries... except she wants Number One, his racing bike. She wants to put her Riding skill to some good use, you see? But Number Two can only go so fast and Number One is the only other bike that can accomplish she what she wants! Shirou understandably tells her no and to use Number Two, but when she still refuses, he suggests that maybe she could use Raiga's motorbike... but she'll have to take a course and get a bike license first. Cue the Imagine Spot of a chibi Rider on a motorcycle getting pursued by the cops (and Shirou realizing that she'd probably outrun the cops anyways). Rider instead tries to appeal to Shirou in another way... until she realizes Sakura was watching them (the whole time, in fact) and quickly acts as if nothing happened and accepts having to use Number Two. Afterwards, Shirou tries to assure Sakura that it isn't what she thinks.


How well does it match the trope?
