How could he defend it against berserker? Maybe some help from Caster? Maybe even a trio with Kuzuki? Or he went all solo "Ultimate technique>Ultimate strenght"? This one would be the coolest, yet unnarrated, 5th grail war battle EVER. Why Nasu, why? Crying or Very sad

I agree with Raitei, the situation was probably a weird stalemate, and Ilya got bored. I hazard a guess that, Berzerker couldn't really hit Kojiro because of his high agility and luck, and Kojiro couldn't lay a scratch on Berserker. Ilya didn't want to go all out on a small fry like Kojiro, so she got bored a left.
and what I said before that.
probably a better explanation is that ilya is a childish girl who gets bored easily. she called berserker back after she'd seen no point in continuing the fight any longer.
@rikh lolwhut? do you think that kojirou can reach ilya that easily? berserker's speed is A, mind you. not very much different from assassin's. the reason why berserker couldn't dodge the rain of nps by gil is because it's a rain. and even if he could, ilya'd be dead. and what good nature? his alignment is neutral evil. and it doesn't state that he won't create collateral damage willingly. (although he mostly won't)
