Shirō and Emiya continue their battle, with Emiya chastising Shirō for continuing to pursue his ideal and declaring that he will remove every trace of him in existence. However, as the battle continues, Emiya begins to realize that Shirō, being himself, will never give up and that it is pointless to defeat him now. Finally, as he explains the beauty he saw in his ideal, Shirō’s spirit begins to overwhelm Unlimited Blade Works, and he rushes Emiya. Emiya tries to react, but he becomes distracted by a flashback of Kiritsugu’s last moments and is wounded by Shirō, just as Rin arrives. With this, Emiya admits defeat and allows Shirō, Rin, and Saber to escape, before being impaled by three swords fired from Gilgamesh’s Noble Phantasm. Declaring his hatred for fakes, Gilgamesh fires more swords at Shirō and Emiya, but Emiya pushes Shirō out of the way and seemingly dies after taking the full blow of the attack.
