Most, but not all, of the following memes are listed on the Type-Moon page on Know Your Meme, and several have individual pages to themselves.
  • "People die if they are killed." Explanation 
    • Up until that point in the Fate route, Shirou had survived at least half a dozen near death experiences (including being disemboweled, stabbed through the heart, and cut clean through from shoulder to hip) through a magical Healing Factor. However, Shirou then gives up that power so Saber can use it to stand a chance against Gilgamesh. Thus, Shirou is just restating he's fine giving the power up, as he's already more than grateful for surviving more near death experiences than a person would normally ever expect to. His next line is "That's the way it's supposed to be", signifying his acceptance of becoming mortal again like every other human. People still make fun of Shirou and the "Blind Idiot" Translation though.
    • Shiki Tohno: "Don't be ridiculous! Dead people can't be alive!"
    • Nanakonote : "Eh—Th-th-that's ridiculous! First of all, that person doesn't even die when killed!"
    • Rin Tohsaka: "She wouldn't die even if you kill her."
    • Playable Caster: "All right! Now that this is all settled, we WILL survive until the end, even if it kills me!"
    • Musashi: "There's no way I'm fighting an opponent who won't die even if you kill him!"
    • Jaguar Man: "Hey you! You know Servants die if they are killed, right?"
    • Kamina: "A real man never dies, even when he's killed!"
    • Renji Abarai: "Even if we kill you, you probably wouldn't die."
    • L: "The thing you have to do, is die before getting killed." (Ironically, this phase actually makes much more sense given the premises of Death Note)
    • Asuna Kagurazaka: "I've been always worried about when he would get injured, of if he would get killed... But now he won't die even if "he" is killed."
    • Nice: "I'll kill you if you die again!"
    • Tadakuni's sister: "Shut up! If you don't die right now, I'll kill you! If you don't wanna get killed, then die!"
    • Hibiki Tachibana: "Then I'll come back alive, even if it kills me!"
    • Maki Harukawa: "He's stupid enough to get himself killed, but I know he won't really die."
    • Eitri: "It will kill you!" Thor: "Only if I die." Eitri: "Yes... that's what... killing you means..."
    • Case in Point.
    • Lord El-Melloi II: "You are dead if your head has been taken away."
  • "Just because you're correct doesn't mean you're right." Explanation 
  • "The Archer class really is made up of Archers!" Explanation 
    • This evolved into a sarcastic meme in Fate/Grand Order regarding the Archer class which has only a few actual archers. The Archer class is given to ranged fighters who don't rely on magecraft, so characters like Billy the Kid (a gun) or Nikola Tesla (science-based lightning) are considered Archers.
      • The sarcasm gets further upon the inclusion of the Garden of sinners's Asagami Fujino as an Archer-class Servant, yet she doesn't have anything in her to be an Archer (as she doesn't have a bow or any ranged weapons but has her telekinetic ability as her main method of attack instead), and some believes she fits more as Caster or Avenger instead.
      • Swimsuit Jeanne is even worse, since she was thought to be a given for the Rider class after the teaser trailer showed her riding a whale... but nope, she's an Archer, and her projectiles are dolphins.
      • To add insult to injury, the former Grand Archer Orion turns out to use mostly his fists to destroy enemies.
