Who else hates Berserker and Illya?


Because I do.

I am gay and twelve, do you have a problem with that?

I hated her too, until I got through the 'Unlimited Blade Works' part of the game. If you never plan on playing the game, check the spoiler below:

She only shows up long enough to get brutally murdered, right after a tragic backstory showing how tortured she'd been all her life. Oh, and Berserker heroically standing, even after his final death, long enough to comfort the dying girl, then vanishes just before she gets her heart ripped out.

That serves that bitch.

I'm not sure about that; the game hints and Fate/Zero confirms Illya's justifications. Her father was Shirou's adoptive father, Kitsuragi, and he killed her mother in the previous Grail War, then completely abandoned her. Left alone, she was put through training from hell by the rest of the family. She believed she had every reason to hate Shirou, especially if he took after Kitsuragi, but found that he was a different person and willing to be protective big brother to her, something her father failed her at.

I haven't finished the book yet, so it's not clear whether Irisviel was murdered by her husband or she sacrificed herself, but since she was the Grail, she had to die when it was destroyed.
