So why does he look so shocked that he blocked his fist?
Oh, sorry. I've forgotten quite a bit about how Shirou's tracing works.
Tracing doesn't just automagically buff Shirou's stats though does it? Now that you guys have reminded of it, I do remember Shirou and Nine Lives.
Isn't that a bit different from Shiki who just gets powered up depending on the opponent?
Anything used in conjunction with the weapon, pretty much. So he doesn't get Herc's God Hand since that's not a weapon technique, but he does pick up his combat style, nine lives technique, and the base stats necessary to execute them and use the weapon. After some slight degradations in the level of their mystery.
Consider the following.
A world with two Shirous. One goes body full of swords. Does that mean the other instantly copies sword-Shirou into his reality marble, and can then project and wield sword-Shirou?
>dies from getting pierced by one sword
Weak ass faggot.
Can Shirou trace imaginary weapons?
was this the root that gil's formor master talked about?
Is that why everybody & their mother loves Kerry?
Why doesn't Shirou just project himself and turn it into a projection wand?
