Wouldn't that make sense? There's only one explanation for where he gets them from: they are just brightly colored manifestations of his energy, his to discard and recreate whenever he wishes. This is also supported by the fact that he only destroys them when he's very angry; obviously, losing control of his emotions causes the aura to be unstable and disintegrate.
Both men saw what Kenshiro can do to the human body, and both knew that our hero was the superior warrior. Telling him of their traumatic childhoods would therefore get enough sympathy from him to give them a merciful death... which they both got.
Think about it for a second: Emiya Shirou wished to be the Greatest Hero ever lived, and the Holy Grail, being the Jackass Genie that it is, interpreted it as: ''"I'll make the world into such a hellhole where you will be forced to be a Great Warrior just to survive. There, boy, now go and be that Great Hero."
Sure enough, the Holy Grail caused the leaders of our world to engulf it in nuclear fire, reverting it to a state of medievalism without firearms (thank Buddah) and where Warriors and Martial Artists have a place in the world once more (thank Buddah again). Kenshiro was only one of many Saviors that rose out of this world of pain and chaos (one man can't be everywhere on this vast desert planet at once, after all); Emiya Shirou, forged by the fires of endless battle, became the Savior known as Archer.
- By extension, it's possible that Fate/EXTRA takes place after the destruction of the 'modern' world (as demonstrated through both Twice Pieceman's flashbacks and what we see of the world during the ending scenes) but before it descended completely into Mad Max-style pre-technological anarchy. This would indicate a timeline where the clashes between the rebels and the Harway-led plutocracy didn't stop with just germ warfare gone wrong but actually concluded with nuclear bombardment— Possibly meaning that, across the radioactive sea, Vault-Tec and the former USA is compensating for a lack of Nanto Seiken practitioners with old-world tech and Pip-Boy-wielding Vault Dwellers/Chosen Ones/Lone Wanderers/Couriers. Who can, coincidentally, achieve similar results through use of VATS and the Bloody Mess perk. One timeline gave birth to two separate universes, three if you think The Book of Eli takes place within the Fallout world, given the Great War/destruction by nukes and the solo sojourner defending human kindness/morality through the rampant, bloody murder of the obvious villains.
- The reason the Fallout/The Book of Eli examples contain fewer Manly Tears / Tender Tears / Redemption Equals Death? Shirou's idealism, demonstrated in how he's able to forgive 'villains' like Rider and Sakura because of their tragic pasts, carried on through the heroes who managed to exist even in the Grail's Crapsack World. Kenshiro is a hero in the Shirou mold, as opposed to Archer who pursued his ideals even if it meant innocents dying. On the other hand, Fallout/Eli is a case of American Kirby Is Hardcore. Obviously, the reason for the difference between the martial-arts-filled East and the guns-and-tech West is a matter of local deity: As seen through Eli hauling that Bible cross-country thanks to the 'voice in his head' and the number of Biblical references in Fallout, notably the importance of a Biblical verse in Fallout 3 and Joshua Graham/the New Caananites in Fallout: New Vegas, the deity responsible for guiding/remaking the West - okay, or maybe just the US - isn't Buddha but God.
- Alternatively, Kenshiro uses VATS and has the Bloody Mess perk.
- Makes sense, in the fight against Devil he punches much slower, and instead of going ATATATATATA he goes ATA! ATA! ATA!
- After defeat Hades once for all, Athena wasn't need to come back to earth...she was wrong. Now, Lin is the new athena. Of course, Ken is the last Saint alive.
- Either that, or Hokuto's real secret technique consists in making every single idiotic road warrior thug in a hundred kilometers radius attack you. (Hokuto's secret mass aggro?)
- This guy ain't savy at all, 'cause if someone'd write Kenshiro's name in a Death Note, the writer'd die.
- Both manga & animé are rather explicit about all the wasteland bein a result of a nuclear war.
- Unfortunately the original and only script for this crossover were destroyed in the same fire that destroyed the unedited cut of the first Hn K movie. But stories of the crossover are still spoken in hushed whispers... Hokuto no Makksu...
