There are people who still do not understand Gilgamesh is the strongest servant,but lost only so they can sell more waifu shit
He's arrogant as fuck, and didnt expect a peasant like Shirou to manifest something like UBW, which allowed him to counter GATE OF BABYLON.
See, that probably kinda caught him off guard, since he's probably never had anyone directly counter GoB. Plus, he didnt think Shirou deserved to fight his EA. By the time he realizes that he was losing and reached for EA, Shirou just fucking hacked off his arm.
Had he started full throttle, Shirou loses.
Gil lost because MUH PRIDE and MONGRELS.
He outright said her chances were practically hopeless, so who gives a shit. He can't even make up his mind with how many servants Arc is worth, and the 5 + a for Gil could mean too many things.
Why is it he disrespects Shirou so much, though?Because he's a nobody?
He didnt expect him to be a main character in a shounen, I bet. Idiot. You'd swear he'd a read enough manga to realize the truth. If you see a semi-attractive, but ultimately nice guy-type surrounded by females- KILL HIM.
He's a main character.
Lancer's Gae Bolg (standing) could totally kill Gil, but in an actual fight Gil has so much that just just fucking destroys Lancer that he probably wouldn't have a chance to use it. Enkidu in particular.
It's a "Can Shiki kill Servants" situation. He has something that COULD, but he would not have a chance to use it in an actual fight.
He disrespected Shirou because Shirou was a lousy FAKER while Gil had the originals. And Gil is of the firm belief that the originals are inherently superior to the fakes and will win every time.
You got your ass whooped by a 16 year old ginger high school student.
Is it true that Comrade Shirou is the Red Man?
Do you have enough Shiki's in stock?
Its possible to be 'the strongest' yet still have something that hard counters you. That's kind of a common thing in nasuverse - it doesn't care what bullshit powers you've got someone has a counter to them.
