* SeriousBusiness: Much like in real life, people take The World way too seriously and [=PKing=] has the same status as murder. Justified with those [[TrappedInAnotherWorld trapped inside the game]], since it becomes a question of [[YourMindMakesItReal what would happen to them in the real world if they died.]]

There is also a card game called ".hack//ENEMY" (previously distributed stateside by Decipher, but now no longer in print), online/offline RPG (not an MMO, and service has since ended) called ".hack//frägment" named after the prototype of The World, and a short ".hack//GIFT" which is a parody of SIGN and the games, available only on DVD; none are {{canon}}.

* {{Defictionalization}}: ''.hack//Fragment'' is an online multiplayer game, essentially bringing ''The World'' to the real world. ** There's also several fan games that attempt to recreate, or pay homage to, the World. The results are with limited success for one reason or another

* DuelingGames: SquareEnix attempted to [[FollowTheLeader sponge off]] the series' success with an Action RPG named ''Code Age Commanders'', which would have been followed up with a anime and manga series, as well as portable spinoffs. However, the mothership game failed and sunk any chance of having a series developed around it.

* NoExportForYou: ''.hack//frägment'' an online RPG version (not to be confused with an MMO) that allows custom created characters on a playable online server, only released in Japan. Fans fear that this may also be the case with .hack//Link, as the PSP is nearing the end of its lifespan.

* TheOtherDarrin: Balmung was voiced by Creator/DougErholtz in the first game of the original tetralogy. He is voiced by Creator/CrispinFreeman from ''Mutation'' onwards. This is in cutscenes only, however; Erholtz' voice is still used for battle vocals. Evidently they recorded them before Erholtz was replaced.

Editing the part about The Movie coming out in 2012 since it's 2015 now
** Done with that? Great! Now you've got a few more books to read, one more game to play (which is unlikely to be [[NoExportForYou officially localized]] but will at least play on your PSP) a subtitled miniseries to watch, and the movie that'll be out sometime in 2012! Have fun!

In the Late Arrival Spoiler thing, it mentions the "Movies" that came with the first 4 games. Technically they're more like OVA's
* LateArrivalSpoiler: If you ''insist'' on being spoiler-free, start by reading a novel, then follow up with its sequel [a short story collection], then watch a 26-episode anime series, then play 4 games (or cop out by reading 4 novels... actually, just do both as the books tell the story from [=BlackRose=]'s point of view while the games are from Kites and some events are only shown in one version as only one of them is there), then read a 3-volume manga series (and don't you ''dare'' cop out by watching the anime adaptation, as that's in CanonDiscontinuity), then watch ANOTHER 26-episode anime series after that, then play 3 games. ''In that order.'' Not to mention [[FilmOfTheBook the movies that come with the first four games]], which tell what's going on in the real world in the time period the games take place in.

Originally stated that LINK and the R:X were to be the last of the .hack series, this does not seem to be the case, as a full-length CGI movie set in the The World FORCE:ERA was released in January 2012 titled ''.hack//Beyond The World'', set in 2024 centering around a girl named Sora and her friends Balder and Gondo as they try to save the world from destruction. A new video game in addition has also been announced, by the name of ''.hack//Versus'', set in 2025. This new arc, the World FORCE:ERA arc, will focus much more on the backstory and deeper workings of forces behind the scenes of .hack's universe, and most particularly on Emma Wielant, ALTIMIT, both of their associations with the environmental awareness and protection group mama, and their own ultimate desires intended with The World, and in extension, the Ultimate AI, Aura.
