Altera is a being similar to Tamamo. Being an independent entity that was separated from a larger, multi-versal force of destruction could qualify her as something like a god. Although I'm not sure what classification the Umbral Star or Cells created by it are considered.

Or maybe Altera get's her divinity by being the divine avatar of "The Worf" of the Fate franchise. Seriously, she jobs harder and more often than Gilgamesh does in the original VN.

She gets it because that big weird sword of hers originally belonged to the first god of war, and her taking it and using it to ravage the earth has bound it into her own legend. She’s a literal ‘scourge of god’, in that she murdered her way through the original pantheon and took their stuff.

The justice for FeMCs is that they're always cuter, more visually interesting, and just overall much much better than their phony male counterparts.

Watching Apocrypha feels like watching late 90s WCW. The booking is awful, you get dumb gimmicks to cover up for bad choreography, and the actual fights are a confusing mess.

Mordred is actually entertaining to watch, hates the rest of the cast, and disappears for extended periods of time. If she gets roped into a terrible story line that destroys any enjoyment of her character and makes her look completely incompetent, I'd say she's spot on for Ric Flair.

UBW Abridged continues to amuse, partly because of Shirou's dedication to the idea of getting ripped and saving everybody, but mostly because they really nailed Kotomine.

I say without hyperbole that I think Azure Crow is setting the new bar for abridged shows. Bleach and Digimon Tri abridged are just as great.

In retrospect Shirou's open admiration for Saber's prowess also makes him a lot more tolerable by removing his "heinous misogyny" attribute.

When my friend and I want to talk about a character who is way less interesting than the rest of the cast taking up all the screentime, we just say this:

"He's a Shirou, dude."

Huh? The whole point of the last two routes is delving into what makes Shirou tick. It is only the first one where he is dull or misogynistic.

I thought he was pretty boring in UBW too. I haven't had a chance to see Heaven's Feel yet.

I'm not saying that he's the most boring character of all time, I just felt nearly every other character was more interesting.

Yes, the character with ptsd, survivor's guilt and hero complex keeps flashing back to the time somebody got injured in his presence while he was helpless to do anything.

Perhaps there's another explanation that's more in line with his character traits and backstory?

Sure, but when justifying his overprotectiveness, he keeps saying "But you're a girl!" Also, Taiga straight up says that he's like that towards women in general, and that he got that attitude from Kiritsugu. I interpret it as a reflection of Kiritsugu's guilt about his treatment of Saber, Irisviel, and Maiya, although of course that wasn't Nasu's intent at the time. (I think Nasu has admitted that the actual reason was his subconscious pointing out to him how weird the Saber/Shirou relationship was.)

It was partly because Nasu was subconsciously forcing the pairing, yes.

Another thing is that Shirou is deliberately written to sound like a gossipy Japanese housewife, in keeping with his "is a goddamn housewife" character trait. There's much to say about the internalized mysoginy within Japanese society, particularly in the early 2000s when FSN was written, but I'm not sure if I'd directly pin it as a Shirou thing when he doesn't really practice what he preaches.

Plus, "but you're a girl" is a very easy excuse that doesn't involve having to examine himself and his traumas.
