    Shirou doesn't deserve to be on here. Apo was shit, but he was one of the only logical characters.

    That said

    Shirou was a shitty villain. Being logical doesn't help his case. Shishigami being here is odd.

    In what aspect? He had the background and motivation, the means go through his plan and had no egregious faults. If anything, the biggest problem is that the protagonists failed to play off him at all.

    By being utterly boring. His prep-work in taking over the entire Black faction besides Saber hurt the story more than it helped it as well. If a character is boring then I'm not going to want to see him on screen and his motivations while sensible and felt very "on the surface", as if he was just kind of saying it rather than meaning it. The fact that it was his goal never did anything for me.

    Boring =/= Bad. If you can't put out an actual criteria beyond "this guy doesn't interest me" then it's subjective. His plans involving the red faction didn't hurt the story one fucking bit. What killed Apo was the shift from a large cast to pandering towards 3 while leaving just about everyone else as caricatures. Padding with more useless masters would have only made it worse.

    Shirou is by no means a standout. I'd say even generic, but you need a lot worse than that to make it in a list with fucking Charioce, who was an active detriment to the story and generic.
