Anime: Death Note
Both series have a protagonist with a determined way for victory. Death note has more mind battles, while Fate/zero has more fights.

Anime: Aldnoah.Zero
If you've watched Fate/Zero, then Aldnoah Zero is worth for you. Aldnoah Zero isn't as well animated as Fate/Zero but the visuals are as good as they can be. Both have the same band, awesome ost, war, violence, deaths, and by the same director.

Anime: Kara no Kyoukai 1: Fukan Fuukei
Same director, same composer, both based of Type Moon novels, along with both containing a similar feel and atmosphere. Both have a mature history. If you like one, you will most definitely like the other.

Anime: Mirai Nikki (TV)
Both feature a battle royale setting, where several characters fight eachother to death for one goal. These characters are aided by a third party in both cases as well. This makes for quite a similiar atmosphere in both shows.

Anime: Naruto: Shippuuden
Characters fight for different reasons including flashbacks that relate to the series prior to the events that occurred. Both have methodical fighting and some characters have similar personalities in terms of supernatural powers, intelligence, and morals. Both have the impact the world theme which involves sacrifices that determines the fate.

Anime: Zetsuen no Tempest
If you enjoyed the world-encompassing magical systems, the opposing factions, the intense competition & emotional interaction between characters in Fate/Zero 2, I'd suggest you also check out Blast of Tempest for similar themes, atmosphere, and general feel.

Anime: Magi: The Kingdom of Magic
The main story in both anime involves with magic and from episode one you can see the similarities between them for example, each episode contains at least one battle between the black magic and white magic.
The main characters from each story have many similarities for example main character is controlling "slaving" one demon/monster to establish their goals, for Magi; Alibaba dreams that he may someday enter the “dungeon” land
while in fateZero everyone is fighting in the Holy Grail and the prize is that your dreams will be fulfill.

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion
After watching Fate/Zero, I was reminded of End of Evangelion and the way it ended. Spectacularly dramatic it is because the main characters Kiritsugu and Shinji goes through a series of drama and decisions that decides the factor of the conclusion. Death tolls roll through and one amazing aspect: ACTION PACK! Mechas, swords, magic, and twists occur throughout like a crazy roller coaster!

Anime: Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu
In terms of sheer scale, not many anime can match up to these two war epics. They also both raise moral questions and clashes of ideals play a big role in both series.

Anime: Cowboy Bebop
The feelings of both shows are similar since as the story processes, more characters are taken out making it more lonely. For the most part, it reflects on their point of views and their backgrounds. Both have great action, soundtrack, animation, and development. Also similar conclusions as well. I found some character similarities, Kiritsugu=Spike, Kirei=Vicious, Rider=Jet and Kiritsugu's band has the same amount that Spike has. Trust me it's linear since each episodes focuses on the story then they show backstories and pasts, etc.

Anime: 07-Ghost
Both anime are about 7 spirits, there is magic, action and humor. Both stories are searching a type of power in Fate Zero it's the Holy Grail and in 07 Ghost it's the Eye of Michail... very interesting to watch!!

Anime: Mai-HiME
Battle-royale theme with characters fighting for the ultimate glory and prize. The music soundtrack in both series is also performed by Yuki Kajiura. Both series contain plenty of great action, drama, and characters with various conflicting personalities.

Anime: Ga-Rei: Zero
Shares the same director, and are both prequels that tells you about the tragedies that occurred to the main characters before the event of the original series. Great animation, story, and heart-wrenching moments.

Anime: Canaan
Both use the same art style and involve fast-paced action and dark plot lines. Though Fate/Zero can be considered more powerful.

Anime: Baccano!
Dark but classy shows full of intelligent dialogue and super awesome action sequences. Both have some very weird supernatural stuff going down, in secret, in an otherwise ordinary, mundane environment.

Anime: Monster
This also applies to Fate/Zero (first season). Anyways, both series:
-Can tell a mature and intelligent story
-Have no fanservice, which goes along with the aforementioned mature story
-Are quite dark and suspenseful
-Have characters with complex motivations
-Are fantastically written and executed
-Have characters with a dark, complex, or mysterious past
-Although previously mentioned, both series have a shroud of mystery surrounding certain characters
-Have intense thriller moments
-Large amounts of characters dying
-Examples of anime at its fineset

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
Both animes have a dark plot line to them, though Fate/Zero is darker in respect. They are very powerful and well-paced; with amazing animation and well developed personalities in each character. The soundtracks are very similar and are perfect for the anime. The same creator I believe too.

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Fate/Zero and NGE have whats in common:
-People fighting monsters until the plot gets to the climax
-Female characters whose role aren't human but serves something greater but too suspicious
-Drama is crazy
-Couple of character similarities (Difficult decisions, overcoming fear and anxiety, and dealing with the loss of humanity for the greater good)
-ancient conspiracy
-Dark and mature tone
-Not just adults but younger characters have some screen time
What's different is that:
-Mechas and Angels play a pivotal role in Third Impact whereas seven magicians and seven servants play a role in the success of the the Holy Grail War
