* LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards: Downplayed, since high-level magic uses words that are tongue-twisters for monolingual Japanese speakers.
--> '''Catsy''': This is the reason why despite how ridiculously OP it is capable of being in the right hands, Alfheim is not overrun by super-mages, most players focus primarily on melee unless they have a free racial magic, and magic does not overwhelmingly dominate in [[PlayerVersusPlayer PvP]] encounters: ''it's goddamn hard.''



* LossOfIdentity: Explored, as all the players react differently to being trapped in the death game. [[ActionGirl Asuna]] reflects on how much she's changed since [[HeroicBSOD launch day]]. [Kirito, [[KnowledgeBroker Argo]], and other beta testers have a [[AllThereintheManual head start]], but try to use that knowledge to help others. Even minor characters get some thoughtful examinations: Argo mentions how Skarrip, [[spoiler:the Sylph leader and an ALO art designer]], tends to always talk in his [[BecomingtheMask extremely formal persona]] since the Death Game began [[spoiler:and then he later gets replaced by Loki]]. And the FantasticRacism is fairly widespread, despite insistence of many players that it's all just a ''game''.

* MacGuffinSuperPerson: [[spoiler: Sasha has become this by the 25th zone. Because of her mastery of the game's magic system and the puzzle boss's weakness relating to such, both the Puca, Cait Sith, and the Salamanders are trying to secure her.]]

** This happened to [[spoiler:Yoshihara]]. The group attacking them had planned to kill them, and then resurrect that person to teach them a lesson. [[spoiler:Things go wrong when the only person in that group that was capable of reviving is killed in the fight, indirectly leading to Yoshihara dying for real, and Coper unintentionally unsurping her role as faction leader.]]



* LesserOfTwoEvils: Yoshihara was a lazy leader who didn't even want her position and got it as a joke, but everyone else was far worse than her for the position and she acted as a stop-gap. [[spoiler:So Eugene eventually had her killed so Coper could take the position.]]

* HostageForMacGuffin & PutDownYourGunAndStepAway: Kirito is ordered to do this in Chapter 16.
** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in that Kirito flat-out refuses to surrender his sword because [[GenreSavvy the moment he sheathed it, the bandits would do whatever they wanted]] and since they were violating a treaty, [[LeaveNoSurvivors they would kill all witnesses anyway.]]
* HollywoodTorches and HollywoodDarkness: Averted by the death game's creator, and the averted tropes discussed ''by name'' in the internal monologue of the dangerously GenreSavvy Kirito as he regretfully observes--in a dark cave--that these convenient gameplay conventions don't exist in ALO.
** Played straight and lampshaded when Asuna wonders if there's an NPC who keeps the braziers fueled in the Undine faction leader's castle.

* MasterOfDisguise: «Phantasmal Mimicry» is a High-Level Spriggan Spell that allows you to look like one person down to every last detail. [[spoiler:Yoshihara and Philia grinded so that they could use it to [[TwinSwitch switch places]].]]

* AccidentalMurder: Somewhat commonplace. Sasha inadvertently killed one of her attackers by knocking them from a long height and Kirito has done this a few times as he doesn't intentionally fight to kill, but deaths occur anyway due to critical hits.
