Tsubame Gaeshi / superior melee skill says hi. Apparently you ignored the "With kansho/bakuya only", or took it to mean "Nine Lives Blade Works included", or thought that every servant would fall for the move Dark Saber did.Shikiller wrote:In a straight-out melee fight (With kansho/bakuya only), Archer will lose to every. single. servant.
Archer's arm shirou says hi.
(She's the slowest servant in the game, ffs. D rank agility? Rider should have been able to take her out easily)
Archer doesn't know NLBW. He wouldn't know until after he fought BerserGAR. If he survives said fight. For all we know, in the fate route, he did the exact same thing GARm Shirou did; NLBW. Certainly a possibility.
The only way Archer would know NLBW is if he came from the HF route, and apparently he didn't. (Shirou would be unable to reproduce NLBW without the GARm, because it's a technique, not a weapon.)
Shirou shouldn't have been able to download Nine Lives from Berserker's weapon: Berserker never used NL with it! And also never used said slab of rock in his regular life.
It's just a scene that shows Shirou's determination; plot holes abound in those 10 minutes.
