Is it ever explained how Ilya was able to overpower Saber in that Excalibur clash? Because with the way tracing works, Ilya's Excalibur should have been only equal to Saber's at best, and weaker at the worst.

If you know Ilya's original origin it would be clear where this extra power is coming from, but I imagine they'll address this soon enough.... Just finished watching the subs version, more awesomeness. Quite a thrilling fight, especially glad they gave it an extended length compared to the manga.

Rather cute how much Miyu has clearly softened to Ilya at this point, getting your life saved like that certainly earned some points, carrying Ilya home like that was quite heartwarming.

I kinda feel sorry for the people who disregarded this series simply because of how awesome that fight was

I've thought this for years, he's movements always felt incredibly stiff in Deen's stuff.... nice to see some other people thought this too.

I don't think they are sticking that close to the original canon. Archer dies if he traces Excalibur anyways.

Where is this from? I don't remember that being stated at all.

Shirou would have that trouble, but Archer?

It's so sad that Shirou isn't here to watch his sister shine.

But even then, that doesn't explain why Ilya outright overpowered Saber with the same sword. Again, shouldn't they have been equal?

The non spoiler answer is Ilya has something Saber doesn't, it's something Saber just flat out can't compete with. The scene with the chains and the lock opening is a hint. As for the details more information is coming in the upcoming episodes, it should explain it.

Biggest thing imo is plot armor but we can also rationalize that after battling Rin and Luvia, Saber wasnt high on prana so her last Excalibast was not at full power.

On Heavens Feel Alter Saber has unlimited prana due to her conection with Sakura, but nothing indicates that she has unlimited prana on this world. and since Saber said that a full Excaliblast uses most of her prana, its unlikely that she had much more prana left, so she lost against a full power "degraded version"

To add to that theory, this was her second time using Excalibur in a very short period.

We should keep in mind he had no master at the time and had already used tons of prana. Under normal circumstances, he might be able to use it. He can certainly do it in CCC (might just be a retcon though, wouldn't be the first time Nasu does it) although it's not exactly the real deal since divine materials are impossible to replicate, hence why it's called Excalibur Image. No idea how its output compares to the original, but it's definitely lower. Illya was able to win because plot and rule of cool. If you want a more reasonable explanation, I think Geburah's works. Saber couldn't fire her blast at its maximum output because she didn't have enough prana left, so Illya who had a shit ton of it won.

It's important to realize who Illya actually is in the Fate/ universe. She's an Einzbern homunculus. The amount of prana she stores inside of her is essentially unlimited. If there's anyone who could overpower Saber Excalibur, it would be Illya doing Excalibur. Even Saber has a finite amount of prana she can use, and it can run out when her Master is unable to supply her with any more. Excalibur is just a huge outpouring of prana after all, and this is the only possible scenario where Saber cannot release more prana at once than someone else!

So basically, in Nasuverse, when you cross magic beams, the one with the highest capacity to channel Prana, or the one with the greatest Prana Pool would win?

In-fact, we should just classify Excaliablast as a Prana Beam Cannon.

And since Illya even in Fate Prisma has both superior Prana pool and Prana "channeling capacity" (apologies to Nasuverse if that's the wrong term to use), if anyone tried to cross beams with an Illya at full power, defeat is assured?

Hmm, the breaking of the lock clearly implies that Illya's Prana has somehow been sealed. Which leads to a few questions. Who sealed it? When was it sealed? What was it sealed?

This would be a spoiler to answer. You need to read the 2wei manga to find out, or wait God Knows How Long for the 2nd season of the animu.
